Five stars because this book was sooooo amazing!!!

Seriously freakingamazing!!! And hot, really really hot! Loved the story, loved the characters, i loved everything! I didn't expect to love it so much, but i just did. I just read and read and read because it is devastatingly addicting. Not to mention all the humor, the heartaches, mystery and all that mindblowing sex (i'm not jocking it was really hot - may as well be best erotica ever xD).

“Hello, star girl,” he said.

This is the second book I have read from Barbara Elsborg and both have been big hits with me. I love that she can write knock your socks of erotica with a meaty story and characters you fall in love with.

Caspar is the brooding hero that the whole town hates. He is the son of an Earl, has zero money, zero potential to get a job because of a past tragedy that the town holds him responsible for and he can't forgive himself for the incident either. He uses women, one night stands only, and he tries

4 1/2 stars!!Oh how I love this author!

Another engaging, heartwarming, funny and very erotic book by Barbara Elsborg. You just get drawn into her stories from the first page, they grab you and don’t let go. She just has a way with lost souls and uses humor and passion to weave a compelling story. This one had a little more of a suspenseful feel as someone one was trying to kill the quirky, delightful, good-to-the bone, Ally. I wanted to reach into the pages of the book and wrap my arms around th

Kiss a Falling Star is the third book I have read by Barbara Elsborg. I am pleasantly surprised that I really enjoy this author and am glad I discovered her books by accident. Kiss a Falling Star was a great read. Was it super steamy? Yes sir! However, this author does a great job giving the reader a lot more substance to her stories rather than just throwing a whole pile of sex scenes at you. Great, funny, sweet read! I will most definitely read more books from this author.

MY GOSH I'M ON A ROLL!! This book was FANTASTIC from beginning to end. The story line was REALLY good but what got me was the character's. The heroine Ally and the hero Casper were fabulous characters. I have to say that Ally was my favorite. She said the most witty and funny things. I loved how her life was a mess and she just kept on going never really giving up. Casper on the other hand

I really loved this book! 5 shiny stars! I thought the heroine, Ally, was hysterical, quirky and sweet, all while being very sexy. Caspar, the crowding misunderstood, self-punishing outcast was wonderfully drawn, as was the entire cast of characters, of which there were many.

It was nice to see characters that weren't rolling in the dough and found the beauty in what they had; laughter, stars, an intense sexual connection, friendship.

All of the miscommunications and misunderstandings became funny

Recommends it for: Everyone who loves romance and wit!
I loved this book…loved it, loved it, loved it! Whew, now I can get on with my review. British author Barbara Elsborg is a wonderful story teller. Her wit and dialogue (especially Ally’s internal dialogue) are reminiscent of Marian Keyes’ Walsh sisters, but with the steam, intrigue, and bad-boy flavor of Lora Leigh’s Nauti Boys.

Ally is fantastic, or shall I say brilliant. Ab-so-freaking-lutely brilliant. Ally has every reason to be sullen, sad and gloomy, but she just pulls up her big girl pants

Likable, smart heroine and perma-horny, delicious hero alert!

This book really has a lot of things going for it - awesome romance (though it's insta-love), some really steamy scenes, a lot of funny moments and a bit of suspense.

Both of these main characters are extremely likable.
Caspar (love this name!) has a bit of a past, and he's really just living in the most annoying self-pitying existence. But through it all you can see it's because he feels guilty for ~something (I won't spoil it because y

You know how you feel when you come across one of those books that has everything you look for in a story...

Well this was one of them.
There was so much going on in this story that I struggled to put it down.
It was a fun and sexy with a plot line that kept you guessing till the end

I'm keeping this review short and sweet

There she meets the town's bad boy, Caspar. Caspar has had his own run of bad luck. The town looks down on Caspar due to his past but Ally sees something they don't.

I saw a review of this and it intrigued me so I got it and I really liked it. The characters were delightful. The story had a mystery element that was interesting. The romance

Really a fun read. Funny, slightly goofy heroine and bad boy brooding down on his luck hero. A little bit of mystery, a little bit of angst. What else could you ask for? I did have a bit of trouble believing that EVERYONE in town hated the hero. But his crime did seem sort of truly bad so maybe... The sex scenes were really well done although there might have been a few too many of them. I'm always the person saying "how about only 2 or 3 sex scenes and let's turn those other 3 scenes into plot! ...more

My third Elsborg novel, and my favorite so far. Ally was the hook for me. She was real. Her quirks–der…left or right?–her wobbling confidence, her ingenuity and humor, her persevering attitude. Too often, characters mull over misguided half-truths and drag out resolutions by not communicating. Ally does some of this, but the difference is we get to be a part of her stream-of-consciousness as she quickly works through her misconceptions, laughs at herself and rectifies it. These moments only make ...more

This was a great romantic story, with mystery and some truly funny moments. The heroine, Ally, is witty, smart and funny, probably one of the best contemporary heroines I've read about in a while. Her comebacks made me laugh. The hero, Caspar, is brooding, mysterious and broken. There were a few misunderstandings but they were quickly resolved because both the H and h had a brain. The mystery added to the story. Some of the secondary characters were a bit flat, but I was having such a g

This is my first Barbara Elsborg book. Sure won't be the last.

The main characters were likeable, funny, and frustrating. I liked the humor in the book with and the constant joking around. Ms. Right, left, right. Cracking me up. The plot is really good and turned out to be a great story. The sex is to perfection, couldn't get enough of it. Can not wait to read more of this author.

I was loving this book up until about 80% when Caspar's asshole-ishness and Ally's constant acceptance of it just rubbed me up the wrong way. I'm the sort of romance reader that needs the heroine to stick up for herself and demand a bit of grovelling before accepting the apologies. Also there were too many sex scenes for my taste. But other than that it was an enjoyable story and the MC's were funny. This author sure knows how to infuse her stories with humour.

What can I say...it was a lovely read..with lots going on..really liked the couple the heroine was quite witty adn funny...good banter..i laughed til i cried on a few occassions...well written..a good solid read :)...thre were a few parts that got under my skin like the one too many times they failed to communicate to avoid misunderstnadings but they were new to this relationship so i guess it was understandable...but still enjoyed the book.

One of the best book I've ever read! I laughed and cried so much reading this one! I'm definitely a Caspar and Ally shipper!

This book is so amazing and scorching hot! Caspar and Ally are both great heroine.

Really a great and epic job, Barbara Elsborg.

I would say this heroine is one of the laugh-out-loud funniest I have read in a long time. The plot was a bit over the top, and the female villains, pretty bitches...this book gets this rating from me for the female character alone!

Kiss A Falling Star is a moving mountains type of read. Caspar was hard to read at first, all I saw was a playboy who wanted nothing to do but screw anything moving. He didn’t make himself too easy to like or to want to get to know. It was even hard to feel sorry for him, because I didn’t know what led him to the dire straits he found himself in.

When Ally shows up and immediately falls for the sexy brooding testosterone driven man, my protective instincts reared up. I cringed thinking he’d end u

Ally's had an interesting week. Is it a series of bizarre coincidences or is someone trying to kill her? After the shove off the platform she knows for sure which it is. But why? And who could it be? Not wanting to hang around London any longer to find out, she heads out to the countryside where her brother Finn has a house. He's in the States so staying there shouldn't

I'm beginning to think I'm easy for Ms. Elsborg, but she sucks me in time and again with her incredible characters.

Ally has had a rash of bad luck lately... flowerpots almost falling on her... getting locked in basements...

Barbara Elsborg is my go-to author to read when I feel like reading a book that not only has some amazing steam and love scenes, but wit, humor AND an interesting plot.

I've loved "An Ordinary Girl" and "Strangers".

Kiss a Falling Star was a good read. But it wasn't great. I did really enjoy it, but this will be a first time I rate one of Ms. Elsborg's novel with something less than a 5.

Kiss a Falling Star has a lot of great things going for. Some really HOT love scenes, laugh out loud moments, a
