15 stars DNF at 50 % Review posted March 24 2014I love lyrical prose emphasis on lyrical and not corny purple prose When I get the impression that an author tries too hard and in the process comes off as pretentious my interest fades away fast As you can gather from my review this was the case with Star Crossed The characters and plot but also the storytelling itself came off as indifferent and unappealing The story was monotonous and fell flat Everything simply plodded along without much purpose I know the purpose of the story was that game to seduce the teacher but still I ust didn t feel it and ended up bored Star Crossed is nowhere as good as Leah Raeder s Unteachable because first and foremost it lacked the magic It didn t shine If anything it came off as bland and dull I remember that I didn t fall for the characters in Unteachable but I irrevocably fell for Leah s splendid writing Unfortunately this wasn t the case here I neither liked the characters nor the writing styleWhen I finally DNFd the book I ve had my fill of analogies and semi colons I think the uotes are telling than a long winded review It wasn t love I hope not Kaitlyn After all you only met him a few minutes ago I didn t love him But I felt something and that was enough to make me breathe in the air around us like it was some sweet nectar that if I didn t savor then I d never have the chance He smelled of warm almond of coffee and sweat which might have been mixed with the espresso I d drank or the caramel still lacing my breath Cherry sugar still coated my tongue and I wanted him to taste itShame came flooding like a syringe shot straight into the vein mixed with an undeniable thrill She had about the same subtlety of a cow chewing grass but oddly enough there was something sultry about the way her mouth movedMy father was surrounded by his business partners all in suits their faces already flushed from the alcohol that slogged through their veins like motor oilThe candle flame was still dancing rising and falling as the white wax dripped down like sweat from Annual Editions: Technologies, Social Media, and Society joined bodies At first his hands shot up like a criminal marked with a red hot target like he was facing certain death by firing suad They fell slow as uick sand eventually finding my hips where they settled with a shaky hesitancy hoveringust above the fabricMr Tennant kissed my mouth like it was something to worship something to savor Delicate and delicious his breath shallow as a pool of puddle water And if I were still a child still stuck in the age of sticky sweet candy and hop scotch I would have umped and played in that murky depth forever When it was ust the two of us door securely latched my heart started humming it trashed around like a caged animal Standing there no words spoken we were like two stranded voiceless islands I could listen to him talk for hours about anything and everything Literature film his past that was still about as clear as an aged opaue windowMr Tennant remained standing and I watched his throat move as if something lived inside there It s probably a frog Will appeared unconvinced skimming his hands through hair that only proceeded to fall straight over his forehead black strands over fair and flawless skin His natural allure was a tragedy itselfJesus he exclaimed soft and feral in the way the words crawled into my ears sinking like toxic paint into the crevices of my brainOne by one I started unbuttoning my shirt watching as his eyes like an elevator slowly drop from my chin to that calico fabric There was an undeniable spark in his eyes flint on stone The idea seeped into his face as if I were suggesting he dive into the first sheet of freshly fallen snow He listened without protest his eyes uickly lapping up every movement like the constant shutter sound of a camera each millisecond like a frame of film that would forever burn into his mind While XXXXXX kiss felt like the impending explosion of a firework Mr Tennant s mouth against mine was like oxygen drizzling from a cannula enabling a deeper breath giving me the sneaking suspicion that there was a deeper strength concealed somewhere amidst entrails and bone I m very sorry but this book wasn t my cup of tea At all Review at reuest of author Luna LacourAll uotes are taken from the pre published copy and may altered or omitted in the final copy is a hard review for me to write as for the majority of the book I was emotionally detached from it I tried very hard to connect with the main characters in some way and found I ust couldn t do it So I tried to figure out why that was exactly The only thing that I came up with is that for a large percentage of the story the heroine Kaitlyn spent a lot of time thinking There was dialogue in the story but not as much as there should have been I recently read a book that had very little dialogue but with that particular story I was sucked right in to the characters involved It is not easy for an author to do and it can be done but only if the reader is still given a lot insight into each character In Kaitlyn s case if she spent time thinking about the people she was with rather than the details of her surroundingsthen maybe I would have been able to connect This leads me to my next big complaint about the first half of this book and that is that everything was written way too descriptive It became way too much and then got frustrating and boring At one point there was a long description of a guy that Kaitlyn ran across so I thought he would be a main character later onwe never saw or heard of him again These were my main complaints of the story and of course it carried me through to about half way On the flip side I did stick with it and as Luna Lacour seemed to get comfortable with her writing the wording got smoother and less descriptive I fell into the story and I will say that Kaitlyn s friend Tyler was

Who Carried My Attention Through 
carried my attention through the end It is kind of amusing to me because as far as Kaitlyn and her teacher Mr Tennant went I didn t really care much of what went on with them Mr Tennant in my eyes I still don t really know him that welland I for sure wouldn t think of him as someone I would want as one of my book boyfriends that I dream about Tyler had potential though and maybe it was because I felt sorry for him or ust that he was such a great supportive friend Marius who is Kaitlynn s step brother that developed the whole bet for Kaitlyn to seduce her teacherwell he was a horse of a different color He was able to extract some emotion out of me too most of them weren t good but at least he made me feel Actually for most of the storyline I would guess where the direction of the story was going to go and then it would go in a totally differen t direction It certainly wasn t predictable but I think I would have enjoyed it if it had of taken a few of the directions that I thought Marius intrigued me and I think there is so much to him than we got I would love to get inside of his head and figure him outIn the end I decided to give Star Crossed a 25 stars and I wouldn t say no in the future to giving this author another chance I also would be interested to read stories about Marius and Tyler As far as Kaitlyn and Will Tennant go though I wish them well on whatever ourney they have in book landbut that is about all of the thought I give them Thank you to the author for providing me a copy of the ARC in exchang.

Read Star Crossed

E for an honest review 45 Star Crossed starsThis took me by surprise that s for sure The writing I feel like I would be repeating everyone by talking about the depth and emotion along with the vibrant characters and shocking plot made for a read that had me captivated from the first page until the final wordThis was a good one Actually it was amazingOne of the big things that stuck out for me was the use of imagery in this book The second big thing was the amount of symbolism that I caught early on a reviewer before me mentioned the clocksIt was interesting to find that I was actually wondering if even the littler things had meaning that ust what was written This was the first book I think I ve read in NA that has bothered doing something like thatThe characters all had so many dimensions that like other reviewers have said I felt like I knew them personally Marius was my favorite even if he was a total erk at times Tyler was such a sweetheart Kait unlike a lot of heroines in NA was very bold an unafraid to go after the things she wanted even if the end result could be disastrous There wasn t much not to love about Mr Tennant He had a kinda punk rock vibe about him coupled with his love for Shakespeare He was smart witty and very broken Will also has a big and surprising secret tooMy favorite line It was a funny thing how he sewed his dialogue together He posed what Americans would spout as statements in the form of a uestion For instance if I were looking out the window and saw rain falling and someone were to suggest that I go play outside I could easily tell them well that s stupid It s raining But if I were to suggest the same thing to Will he would have likely looked at me with a twinged confusion and muttered pointing in the direction of the rain streaked window but I can t can I The inflections always hung with a sort of hope like the possibility of playing in rainfall was still on the table Nothing was impossibleThe writing was seriously so pretty that alone was enough to make me swoonAndFans of Cruel Intentions will love this bookI do wish there was an epilogue explaining the 45 star but the ending did work I think I was ust sad for the book to endI received a copy for an honest review 25 3 STARSAfter a very rough start I finally settled into the writing style and plot pace Overall a nice mellow and enjoyable studentteacher story that s loosely reminiscent of Cruel Intentions When I first read the blurb I had a bookgasmI mean did you read it Studentteacher AND stepbrother So of course I didn t think twice about it and umped

than anyone else And if you win I breathed What is it that you want Oh Kaitlyn he whispered reaching out and cupping my face in his hands You I want you So let me start by saying that this hit a lot of my preference buttons I you So let me start by saying that this hit a lot of my preference buttons I a terrible weakness for studentteacher affairs or forbidden in general I also don t mind a bit of taboo now and thenTo go into detail there s a ten year age gap for a start Every so often it would say something a little risu too like how Kaitlyn may have enjoyed his borderline parental tone or how she was ust a kid or how her school uniform could turn him on and how Kaitlyn most of the time would refer to him as Mr Tennant even in the personal scenes These were subtle comments few and far between intended to play around with the tabooI liked how the author switched things around she wrote Kaitlyn as of a predator but not in a heavy handed way Kaitlyn was the initiator gently coaxing William to be bad with herI loved the characters they were complex and well written The side characters were also I loved Tyler Kaitlyn is a daydreamer almost a little cold hearted impulsive and on the verge of adulthood Will is a beta hero he s a little eccentric passionate vulnerable and kind of a pushover My only complaint with the book would be that sometimes there was too much inner monologue for me I wanted a little romantic meetings interaction and some dialogue Star Crossed is uite casual written with an upper class voice that embodies a girls sexual discovery and the beginnings of adulthood It mixes aspects of Lolita with a loosely based version of Romeo Juliet Star crossed stand alone A debutante wicked step brother friend unsuspecting teacher play a sinister
