Written in the Stars – Alexandra Bellefleur
Romance, contemporary, fiction.
Darcy never wants to be involved with love after her disastrous relationship that left her jaded. However, her brother sets her up with one blind date too far and she tells him that she can’t attend this speed dating because she is already into the blind date, his business partner, Elle. Her brother is happy that she found a potential partner. Elle is not amused with the lie that Darcy told and both agreed mutually that they will fake it until an expiration date. However, the stars have different plans for the two.
I saw this trending and of course I had to read to see what the hype is all about. All I can say is that I think the hype was not enough. I love this fake it trope that leads to actual love and romance. This was really sweet and I found it so adorable. Love sometimes happens and one has to be fully prepared. My heart melted so many times while reading this and I can’t get enough of this romance. I wish this was longer but a standalone is just perfect and the length here was good. There are an awful lot of constellations and astrological references which all makes sense and I was like wow the author is into this stuff or did a lot of research. I felt myself rooting for Darcy to like being into the stuff but she gives in at some point. This book would be great for astrological enthusiasts. I loved this book and definitely would reread this book and or gift to others.
