REVIEW: Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose

by - 1:35 PM

“This will either be the adventure of a lifetime or the biggest mistake.”

Back of the book blurb:

Evangeline Thorne is privileged.

  Beautiful and popular, if not a little jaded. A chance encounter with a green-eyed stuntman sets off a chain of events that turns her perfect, little world upside down. Short on options and desperate for adventure, she joins the traveling carnival for the summer. Thrust into a world full of drama, deception, and secrecy, Evangeline tries to find herself and protect her heart in the process.

  Sebastian McAllister is cursed.

  He knows better than to think otherwise. He’s content to live out the rest of his life traveling the country as one of the four Sons of Eastlake, seeking thrills the only way he knows how. The one thing he doesn’t see coming is the spoiled blond with stars in her eyes. The only problem is, the more time he spends with her, the more hope starts to stir in his dormant heart. Too bad hope is a dangerous thing when you’re a McAllister.

My rating:

            Each Charleigh Rose novel gets better and better. Charleigh is the queen of the nitty gritty. Her heroines are always rough and broken, even if only on the inside. Her heroes are dark and broody and so deliciously addicting. Rewrite the Stars is Charleigh at her best. She has found her voice and she’s making magic with it. Rewrite the Stars is absolutely my new favorite Charleigh novel. Hands down.

            Thank you Charleigh and Inkslinger PR for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

“How did everything get so fucked up?”

            Rewrite the Stars starts off sugary sweet. We have a young Evangeline who has the perfect life, but is looking for a little trouble so she runs off to the carnival, where her uptight parents would not be caught dead. This leads to a chain of events that quite literally turns Evan’s life upside down. Fast forward two years, and she’s not the same person who she used to be, though she desperately tries to make it seem that way.

            I think we’ve all thought about running off to the circus when we fought with our parents or had a rough day. But, two things: 1. We never actually did it. 2. A circus and a carnival are very different things, okay?!

            I love the uniqueness of Rewrite the Stars. It’s filled with Charleigh’s signature sarcasm, grit, and male broodiness, but the plot, the world, the scenery are all entirely fresh and captivating.

“Reality rarely lives up to the fantasies I’ve dreamt up in my mind.”

            Charleigh writes the best female characters. They are all strong and rough around the edges and completely lovable. Evan Thorne is by far my favorite heroine of Charleigh’s, though. I love how on the outside, she’s Head Cheerleader and It Girl, but underneath it all, she’s broken and just trying to make it through each day. Her mask is a tough one, but her vulnerability is what makes her so special.

“I want to make her melt for me.”

            Continuing with the theme of this review, Sebastian McAllister is now one of my top favorite book boyfriends. Not only am I picturing the beautiful man on the cover, but oh my god… his words, his mind, his heart. Sebastian is dark and dangerous, but I don’t think anyone would be able to resist him. *Insert Julia Michaels’s “Heaven” lyric here.*

“Everyone’s stupid when it comes to love.”

            There’s something about two broken people coming together and becoming whole again that literally just makes my heart sing. Evan and Sebastian have this connection from the very beginning that everyone dreams about feeling. We all want that feeling, you know, when you look at someone and you just know you’re meant to be together. As hard as they try to resist it, Evan and Sebastian have that connection. And it causes fireworks. Beautiful, beautiful fireworks.

            Rewrite the Stars is out NOW. And you don’t want to miss it.

“What if it’s already in the stars? You can’t change fate.”
“Then we’ll rewrite the stars.”

Happy Reading!
