I really enjoyed this story overall. I Loved Ash and Connor were great together. I would highly recommend this as a fun sweet read.

It took me awhile to get into this story because of all the POV changes. I didn’t like the way the story opened with Rose’s POV and it confused for a while. Then when I started to get into the story it would switch POV again. I liked both Rose and Angie but I didn’t care for their POV or to be inside their head, they were great side characters but every time it swit
I am lucky enough to have read this book before release.

Ash, an alien, a Vyan, is looking for his sister, Tria - Conn is a PI on the trail of a runaway. When they meet in Amassol, Vermont, sparks fly. With elements of science fiction woven into a contemporary setting, and a story that features adventure, romance, street gangs, and the beautiful scenery in Vermont, Starfall is a book I would highly recommend... and you know me, I dont rec books very often.

3.5 rounded up. This is a very different book than what I thought it would be. I expected action and sci fi elements and hot alien love. I didn't get that exactly but still enjoyed this a great deal. At times I tended to forget this was a sci-fi book. A great deal of the plot focused around the more mundane gang related troubles and the run away girl Angi. Ash and Conn's relationship wasn't hot and passionate but had a slower burn to it which I liked as well. The only thing that irritated me was ...more

I really liked this one. It caught my attention from the very beginning. I fell in love with both Ash and Conn and the way they were both so different but still had things in common. The sci-fi aspect of the novel was great and appealed to me a lot because of the way Ash was physically different from Conn (he is an alien after all). He even had his own language and I found it fascinating when he spoke about his world and everything associated to it and his ship sounded totally awesome!

I enjoyed this book but had a hard time reading it. The characters were well fleshed out and Ash and Conn were perfect. It took until page 186 for me to get into the story though. There were many unnecessary subplots going on in the book that I kept putting the book down then picking it up again. I don't see where the whole gang war was necessary or the funeral scene. I think the book would have read much better if it was 100 pages shorter. The Ash-Conn story was great.

This is a great book based on friends/follow rating and comments. However this just isn't the book for me. I just cannot seem to connect to the story at all and I've really given it all I can. I just didn't like it. I found myself watching reruns on TV just to avoid reading the book, so I'll stop now and find something else to read.

I love sci-fi, this is a wonderful book with fantastic characters. Good plot, well paced and very hot. I highly recommend it.

I’ve read and enjoyed all of Chris Quinton’s Manifold Press books and so I was keen to read this offering from Silver Publishing. I have to admit I was a little put off when I began reading the book because of the large amount of info-dumping at the start which nearly lost me within the first few pages. I found it a little difficult to keep track of the number of names, places and facts we are given at first. In the end I was glad that I

I started out very lost learning several characters and reading multiple POVs, but once we started to get to know Ash and Conn, and the quest that drives Ash's every decision, the story sucked me in.

There were a couple of odd moments that confused me (For example, how does a guy get the crap beat out of him by gang members and never lose his sunglasses?) but when such things happened, they weren't a part of the overall theme (nor were they frequent), so I still enjoyed the story itself -- a the
I had to give this book 2 stars, which means it was just OK.

The synopsis indicated that it would be an adventure about an alien, Ash, who came to Earth to find his sister. In reality, the book was about a couple of PIs, an alien and a 'hippie' running around in Vermont getting kidnapped by a couple Vermont street gangs. The main plot thread was put off to the last 25% of the book. Somehow it just didn't gel. Maybe there are street gangs in rural Vermont, but I just couldn't picture it. I would h
I LOVE THIS BOOK! I recommend that EVERYONE reads this book. It has everything that you could possibly want;
two sexy alpha males both with a sweet side snuck in, a great story that pulls you in (enough that I didn't even realise my husband had gone to bed),
secondary characters that you like (and in one case someone who you love to hate or bitchslap, yup that's Faye everybody!),
some bits that will make you chuckle and some that will make you a little sad, rival gangs, paranormal entities, smok

After a rocky start - the first few chapters left your head reeling with the introduction of quite a lot of characters and maybe the writing was less than perfect - the story settled down to a most enjoyable adventure. The main story throughout was of Ash (an alien from the planet Vyan) searching for his sister whose spacecraft had crash landed on Earth set against the local background of gang wars involving which gang controlled a Roadhouse run by Rosie and her father. Enter two private investi ...more

I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
All the characters were well fleshed out and the main characters were especially appealing.
The (off-)world building was convincing, and the aliens were attractive and different though similar enough to humans to be convincing as passing unnoticed in rural Vermont.
The book was the ideal length, and Chris Quinton keeps you reading from chapter to chapter with a plot that's well paced.

This is a character driven story, with a great plot that flows smooth as silk from beginning to end. The author has built a very solid and richly detailed book that is packed with enough interspecies sex, gang wars, loyal siblings, hard science, and pure wonder to satisfy even the most diehard reader. Chris's style of writing is solid, simple, but very concise and displays a very well researched and in-depth knowledge of her subject. I really enjoyed reading the unique HEA ending, and would reco ...more
I may write a review later but the blurb covers the story pretty well. Suffice to say, this story of alien Ash who comes to earth to search for his missing sister & in the process, meets his soulmate Conn, could have benefited from eliminating some of the POV of the minor characters in the story. Also before when I thought of Vermont, I think maple syrup & fall colors. Apparently I missed the gang problems. I did end up liking this story mainly due to Ash & Conn.

It felt strange to have the beginning of a m/m romance revolve around 2 women, but once Ash finally stepped on stage, the story warmed up. I liked seeing the budding relationship, in fact, the story could have just dumped all the whiny women and drug dealers and focused on the two guys.

Was hungry to learn more of Ash and his world. Maybe a sequel...?
Took a bit to orientate to the plot, but then, simply awesome. Complicated, intriguing and compelling. Lots of well drawn characters. The only irk was the two, very large, violent gangs in a small Vermont tourist town. Just couldn't buy into that, but I'll still look for more of this author's work.
Wonderful story of a romance that develops between an earthling and an extra-terrestrial. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is some of the back situations.

Come on, gangs in a small New England tourist fishing village? hard to grasp. But a wonderful stroy in spite of some of the tropes.
I must confess to being confused as to what the heck this book was about at first. The beginning didn't mesh with the blurb and it was really quite slow going. But it got better! Man, did it get better! I'd love to read a sequel to Ash and Connery's story! *nods*
This book was definitely different, but shew, was it steamy and unique! I recommend this book without a moment of hesitation. I really like this author and he seems to have a vision when writing...I recommend it!
3.5 stars

There's a lot going on in this interesting sci-fi story. Aliens, biker gangs, runaways and a surprisingly sweet love story.

Chris started creating stories not long after she mastered joined-up writing, somewhat to the bemusement of her parents and her English teachers. But she received plenty of encouragement. Her dad gave her an already old Everest typewriter when she was about ten, and it was probably the best gift she'd ever received – until the inventions of the home-computer and the worldwide web.
