Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Absolutely Stunning! I LOVED this book and I really thought that I was going to HATE it! The low-star reviews that I read are just not fair for this beautiful book from our darlings Christina & Lauren. All these reviewers wanted to re-read the CLo books of the Beautiful Bastard troupe and this is not one of those books. Don’t get me wrong – BB is one of my all time favorites – but this is a lovely, heart-wrenching, second chance love story.
The Past: Tate is a sheltered 18 year-old everygirl – sheltered from the public as her father is a iconic movie star who wronged her mother years ago. Sam is visiting London with his dying Grandfather. Whirl wind romance thru London staring at the stars ends in a crazy cosmic betrayal.
Sam: “Can you believe me, though?” he asks quietly. “That the worst thing I ever did was for the best reason I ever had?” SWOON!
The Now: Sam’s betrayal forced Tate into a fabulous acting career – rough, huh? The second chance meeting is not a pleasant surprise as they are forced together on Tate’s Oscar-potential breakout film role – 14 years later! Lots of angsty drama (not what we are used to from our authorettes) but it WORKS!
Supporting characters – CLO really puts a lot into the ancillary characters which always has you rooting for follow up sequels. Charlie (Tate’s outgoing bestie) and Marco or maybe some Nick and Trey – all sorts of fun scenarios running thru my mind.
I cried throughout and I was delighted by the ending – wishing for at least 4 more chapters! This is a wonderfully written, soulful story. I became emotionally invested in both flawed characters just anticipating their ultimate real reunion which was beautiful. Good Job Ladies!
