Uncross the Stars
by Janell Rhiannon
Fiona Lavender is the new girl at school. She has a chip on her shoulder and a pension for poetry. Dario Martinez is the star quarterback, and the most unattainable guy on campus. Their stars cross when they are paired to study Romeo and Juliet for a senior English project. Their connection is fragile and undeniable. But, Dario is afraid of what love will do; and Fiona is waiting for love to claim her.
Will they uncross the stars and find the love they both need to heal their pasts?
I love the cover. You know I’m a sucker for great & wonderful covers and this one hit it. I've been seeing a lot of rooms with Christmas lights in it and I think it’s amazing.
I love how the title was incorporated with the story. There are books that the title doesn't even have any connection with the book itself which is why I’m glad that this has a connection and was beautifully explained.
Uncross the Stars is a light and fast read. It is definitely perfect for those who have few to little time to read (like me, ugh!). For our lead characters, we have Fiona Lavender, the new girl who loves poetry and Dario Martinez, the star quarterback of the school who’s afraid to fall in love. Yes, you've read that right. Dario isn't your typical popular player guy. Believe me, I want it like that. Fiona & Dario made me feel like a high school girl again. They meet and fall in love, end of story – kidding *peace sign*. There’s definitely obstacles that they have to overcome before they can have their happily every after. Okayyyy, I won’t get into details as I don’t want to spoil you.
IV. Overall, I recommend this to people who are looking for a fast but enjoyable read and also to people who like High School romances and rivalry. To be honest, I never thought that I would love it as much as I did. I just wish it was longer. Looking forward to Ms. Rhiannon’s next books. I would love a College Romance or perhaps an Office Romance. Please? :)
