❥ ARC REVIEW ❥ WHEN THE STARS FALL

TITLE: When The Stars Fall
SERIES: Lost Stars #1
AUTHOR: Emery Rose
GENRE: Romance
PUBLICATION: October 17th, 2020
BLURB
Growing up, Jude McCallister was the bane of my existence.
My best friend. Fiercest ally. The most annoying boy in the world.
At eighteen, the boy I loved to hate became the man I couldn’t live without.

We were young. Madly in love. Invincible.
Strong enough to weather any storm.
Cocky enough to believe that no amount of time or distance could destroy us.

When Jude finally returned home from overseas, it should have been cause for celebration. But the man I’d fallen in love with was gone, and in his place was someone I no longer recognized.

Now, after six long years he’s back. Only my heart ... it doesn’t beat just for him anymore.
 

MY REVIEW

'WHEN THE STARS FALL' 
is the first full length romance book in new to me author Emery Roses's 'Lost Stars' series. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.'

These types of books are the ones I chase, childhood sweethearts, to being torn apart by the impacts of war. God this book gave my heart a hammering, the angst, and all the feels played havoc on my emotions. As soon as I started this I was hooked, books like this are my kryptonite, and this author delivered it perfectly.


Nine year old Lila, and ten year olds Jude and his cousin Brody met when Lila moved next door to them in Cypress Springs a small town in Texas, the three became fast friends. Lila was the kind of girl who never backed down from a dare and Jude loved to get her riled up to see how far he could take it.

Jude played football, and was the town's golden boy and could've even made it to the NFL but that wasn't his dream, even at a young age he wanted to enlist in the Marines 'I want to fight for our country. I want to do my part to protect our freedom' and serve his country just like his father had done before him.

They spend summers freely, running wild, the three doing dare, becoming inseparable. Bonds formed, friendships sealed, a love like no other between Jude and Lila blossoms slowly. '“If a guy won't give you his hoodie, he's not worth your time.”

“𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒉𝒂𝒑𝒑𝒆𝒏𝒔 π’˜π’‰π’†π’ 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒓𝒔 𝒇𝒂𝒍𝒍, 𝑱𝒖𝒅𝒆?”
“𝑰’𝒍𝒍 𝒑𝒖𝒕 π’•π’‰π’†π’Ž π’ƒπ’‚π’„π’Œ π’Šπ’ 𝒕𝒉𝒆 π’”π’Œπ’š 𝒇𝒐𝒓 π’šπ’π’–.”

As soon as they graduate Jude will be enlisting for five years leaving Lila behind to face college alone. Even though it was hard year after year they stayed strong. “For five long years I'd waited for him. For five long years I'd counted down the months and days until we could be together again. And now that he was here, it felt like he wasn't really here at all.”


Now five years later..War had changed Jude, he wasn't the same boy that had gone off to fight for his country, in his place he's retuned a man ravaged by war and the things he'd seen and done. They thought their love would be strong enough to tether them together. They thought nothing could break them apart.

They were wrong. So very wrong.
