Until The Last Star Fades is such an emotional, beautiful love story. It talks about Ben and Riley’s financial struggles, just trying to make a living in NYC. Even though you’re experiencing heartache and fighting with your demons of the past, it’s so ok to just let go sometimes, and jump right into something new and exciting. Indulge in you every so often. As Riley’s mom keeps telling her, in not so many words, to have a bit of fun just because you can and don’t let the tough days get ya down.
I enjoyed this book sooo much because it was just what I needed to read at this time.
This book was so beautifully written. It will bring you to tears and it never lulls off. It keeps you interested, anxious and excited for what comes next; all the way to the end!
I have read Jacquelyn’s other two books, LBTM and LCYW, and I know now, she is an auto-buy author for me!
This story explores the loves of our lives, best friends, frenemies—and how these labels change over time.
I recommend this book to fans of London Belongs To Me, London Can You Wait, anglophiles, fangirls/boys, and people who may be struggling with loss or grief. Until the Last Star Fades reminds us to love the ones we have, remember who we’ve lost, and be open to getting help dealing with both.
I am excited to see what comes next from this great author. THANK YOU Jacquelyn Middleton!

I find myself taking my time while reading Jacquelyn’s books because there are so many layers of complex emotion. I feel like I need time to process it all and let it sink in. I found Alex in the London books incredibly relatable, and Riley in Until the Last Star Fades was equally relatable in some similar and also new ways. I was deeply touched by the mother-daughter relationship between Riley and her mom, Maggie. In many ways, it reminded me of my relationship with my own mum, who’s my best friend. It’s so rare to read about healthy mother-daughter relationships, and it was nice to see a character who would do anything for her mother because that’s how I am with my own mum. Another relatable aspect was Riley’s depression; I saw myself in her immediately - in her need to put a smile on and make people think everything was fine, and to power through no matter how difficult things got.
Middleton knows how to do angst. She doesn’t shy away from putting her characters in uncomfortable, painful, awkward, and sometimes even hellish situations and letting them flounder for a bit before finding their feet. There are no easy solutions here between the secrets and lies and a healthy dose of drama, all of which is done in a realistic way, especially considering the characters’ ages. You truly get to know the characters and feel for them and root for them. Can I also just say I really appreciate the realistic portrayal of Riley’s finances? As someone who has spent her life scrimping, saving, and going without, that was just one more thing I found relatable. Riley was basically living the poor student life in a tiny place where she had to decide between eating and other necessities. We don’t see enough of this, especially in books with characters in this age range.
Now...let’s talk romance. If I had to categorize this book, I’d call it women’s fiction with elements of romance. The romance isn’t the main focus of the story. I’m a total romance junkie - give me all the romance - but I have a special fondness for books like this when they’re done well, which Until the Last Star Fades was. I love books that explore relationships other than romantic and sexual ones, and I appreciated that Riley had a well-rounded life - friendships, school, her passions - and that her personality really shone through on every page. And I loved Ben. He was adorable and sweet and hard-working and selfless. He saw a kindred spirit in Riley and wanted to make her happy, keep her safe, and also encourage her to pursue her dreams. I loved Riley and Ben’s interactions, and watching them go from friends to something more made me smile, laugh out loud, and swoon. Jacquelyn Middleton has now given me two book boyfriends to love!
Until the Last Star Fades is a love story in its truest form. It’s heartfelt and bittersweet and hopeful. It will take you an emotional journey you won’t soon forget. With her knack for complex characters and vibrant settings, I can’t wait to see what journey - both emotional and physical - Jacquelyn Middleton will take her readers on next.
I recently finished Until the Last Star Fades by Jacquelyn Middleton and I loved it a lot (4.5/5🌟). I've read two other books by her before: London Belongs To Me and London, Can You Wait?, which I both loved too. Jacquelyn Middleton is one of my auto-buy authors and her next book is coming out in November *excited* 😍 You can read this book as a standalone, but characters from her previous books show up at some point, or are mentioned 👍 If you love romance novels, you should definitely give her books a try, they are all great 💙
I love a good slow-burn/friends-to-lovers romance, and this was so well done 😍 Ben and Riley are such a great pairing and I loved their friendship, how they support each other and show how important listening, and great communication, is in a friendship/relationship. There's also mental illness rep, namely anxiety and smiling depression. I hadn't heard of that form of depression before, but could relate to it in some ways. Like, how you sometimes put on a smile for the world and people around you, not showing how you're really feeling on the inside; only the people closest to you, those you trust the most, might get to know/see what you're going through when you're willing to open up. Surrounding yourself with people who support you no matter what is important, so you know you can be vulnerable around them and don't have to hide how you truly feel 💙
I also love the mother-daughter relationship in this book so much. Maggie and Riley have such a strong connection, supporting each other through tough times, always being there for each other 😍
