Many of my friends really liked this book, so I feel somewhat uncomfortable in that I'm going to completely disagree with them on this book.

First of all, I can't imagine that Falling Stars is anything but a loosely disguised 50/Twi-fic. Christian Christopher Masen Mason, Jasper Jackson, Emmett Elliot, Jacob Jimmy, etc. Not to mention the stepmother, Esme Gwen's caramel colored hair, and stepfather, Carlisle Nicholas who looks so fine. That's not counting Alice Laney, Rosalie Serena, and pseudo J

SIDENOTE: This will be revised on 11/14/12. After a nights rest...

OK, I had a nights rest and a few things have been changed.

What you need to know before reading this book.
From what I read this book was originally written as a fan-fic so you will see small similarities to two popular series Beautiful Disasterand Twilight. Some say Fifty Shades of Grey too, but after a good nights rest I beg to differ.

Ok, so.

Update reread AUDIOBOOK: Sooo I absolutely love this book and have been wanting to reread it, but I know it’s a long one so I grabbed the audiobook... it was pretty terrible. The narrator did an awful voice for Christopher making him sound lazy and kind of dumb and sometimes southern(?). Her attempts at accents were distracting and she mispronounced words! Like debut and writhe. Rith? Her body rithed? Seriously? But besides the fact that I did NOT like this narrator. Did anybody edit it? There w ...more

I think I’m at a loss for words.

I had been looking at this book for a while. I went back and forth on it, wanting to read it and then changing my mind. Then something great happened…I got it for free! So, I bought it and immediately transferred it to my kindle. And there it sat…for months. Then a friend asked if I wanted to do a buddy read on the book. I had just finished another book and didn’t know what I wanted to read next. And sin

I have to admit that I was completely absorbed in this book, but that cover model is what had me at "Hello". ;)

Must Mentions:

Kat (Katherine) had to be my 1# favorite 'band sister' of Mia's. They were always openly joking around together and freely handing out shit to everyone else. Imitating Serena and Elliot's smooch fest - had me laughing! Singing "Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them all up." - had me wheezing! Forcing Xander to play Dance Revolution with the

It was also no secret the band had a reputation, especially the dark lead singer often labeled the hot, arrogant asshole.

"Hot, arrogant asshole." Yup, I was sold. Shocker I know. I'm not ashamed either. I love these types of books. Honestly the premise of the book intrigued me. I love strong heroines who won't take crap from assholes like this. From the beginning, it was pretty apparent that Chris Mason is an asshole. Yes, he's hot. Yes, he's sexy, but his attitude was almost a

Ever since I’ve read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, and shortly after Thoughtless and Effortless by S.C. Stephens, I’ve been on the lookout for similar compelling books about two people coming together against all odds and struggles. Yet somehow every similar sounding novel ends up being just mediocre or a disappointment. Falling Stars, however, surprised me. I was completely captivated by it in no time. The story is really engaging, and the characters are described in a realistic way. I f ...more
I was pleasantly surprised ! This book was fairly intense, and the "secret" Christoper harbors was seriously intense. So make sure you are prepared for some pretty dark pasts before reading this book, but it was definitely worth all the drama.

I absolutely loved Christopher's character.. The facade of him being an arrogant, "asshole" (as she correctly puts it) made it even better when we see his vulnerability revealed in the book. What he went through, and how much he suffered.. I don't think I

In the first of the Falling Star Series we meet the lead singer of The Forgotten, Christopher Mason he's got a reputation of being difficult due the dark memories of his past.

Mia Ryder is the head strong yet laid back lead singer of the band Hushed Mentality.

Hushed Mentality get the news that their going to be the opening act for The Forgotten much to the annoyance of their lead singer Christopher.

At the start of this book I thought I would love it and there were many things I did love, but not enough to make up for the fact that this book was way too long, the repetitive POV (his and then hers) was too much and the editing was horrible. Chris was such a broken character and I felt for him and wanted him to have his HEA- so that is pretty much the reason I stuck it out.
I really enjoyed this book! I'm not even sure what caused me to pick this one other than it was a story about hot rock stars, total no brainer and I wasn't disappointed!

This starts out as the story of the famous rock band The Forgotten getting a new opening act, an all girl band called Hushed Mentality. Of course our lead singers, Christopher Mason(The Forgotten) and Mia Ryder(HM)cannot get along to save their lives! To be fair, Chis is a complete and total A-HOLE to Mia and we all know what tha

Okay, this book and I did not click. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how the average rating is 4 stars. Christopher, is a total asshat. Okay, I get that he has issues in his past that he cannot get over, but is that any reason he is allowed to act and behave like an asshole to his friends and the girl he cannot stop thinking of? And, speaking of Mia, how come she lets Christopher get away with using her (for comfort, admittedly, not sex) and then treating her like shit the next second.

Hmmm.... where do I begin on this one? Although I can honestly say that I loved the storyline and the characters, I have to unfortunately say that the lack of words and lack of grammatical perfection on this one really has me rating it lower than I thought I would. Because of the fact that there were so many missing words or incomplete sentences in some parts, it was hard to follow the story and continue to be "involved" in the story itself. I know I can be harsh when it comes to spelling and gr ...more

I imagined a whole different kind of book going into this one. I think I've been reading too many rock star love stories. This turned out to be much more than that. It was a beautiful story about broken man finding the one thing to bring him back to the light. I loved how the love story developed - that for once this wasn't insta love or even insta lust. I enjoyed Chris and Mia - they were very real - flaws and all. Very enjoyable read.

Good enough story line, frustrating errors throughout the book, there were bits that I loved and had me wanting more, I do crave a big happily ever after and this book didn't quite deliver sadly. The characters were likeable enough, it had all the direction and idea to be a great book but ended up being all in all just ok.

This book was so good that I loved everything about it! It is wonderfully written and engrossing read that you could relate to. You will definitely fall in love with not only the main characters Mia and Chris and hang onto every bit of their romance but also members of the band and their storyline! Another frustrating wait for the sequel!!

I liked this book. It was super long and I felt the author skipped around a lot. By the end I loved Chris but the beginning and in between I wasn't sold on him.

I've figured out that I stress way to much when it comes to ARC books. Of course I believe I have a valid reason to be since nobody wants to waste their time reading a book and have it blow up in your face... I've become hesitant at agreeing to read books via authors request, not because I'm being a cow or anything, but it's not lost on me that all authors believe their books are great.

I was in the mood for a light contemporary romance and as I was looking at my TBR list I felt drawn to this one. Sexy tortured rockstar? yes please!

Mia’s band is set to tour with The Forgotten as their opening act. A fact Christopher (lead singer of The Forgotten) is not too thrilled about. He plans to drive them away but realises he needs Mia, turns out she’s the only one who can drive his nightmares away.

Christopher Mason, frontman of the band The Forgotten. He's hot, he's famous and everything a famous rockstar can be. But despite of his enigmatic look, inside he have his own demons to fight. Demons that can't seem to let him go. He had lost all hope. Slowly, his star is falling. Then Mia Ryder, lead vocalist of the band Hushed Mentality, came in to his life. Not wanting to have the "girly" band in his band's tour, he tried to push her away by being an asshole.

This wasn't your typical rock star romance. The Forgotten are at the top of their game and new rock band Hushed Mentality is going to be their opening act. But the lead singer Christopher is not about to tour with a bunch of girls.

Certain he can get Hushed lead singer, Mia to quit the band, Chris plots to drive her and her girls off the tour.

But....we soon learn that Christopher has some major demons and after a drunken night he finds calmness and splice in the one person he did mot expect. Mia

I LOVED this story of Christopher and Mia. It was so touching and loving. I absolutely loved the build up of the romance between Chris and Mia. The banter was wonderful with both bands and I enjoyed the secondary characters and how much they were part of the story. My heart really went out to Christopher and what he was dealing with. I wanted so much to help him. So emotional. What a beautiful ending. I loved this story!

Ok wow that was so much better than expected. I loved it. It was such a heartbreaking emotionally draining ride and I loved it . I loved the weird relationship that Christopher and Mia had at times it had me cracking up laughing but then it turned into something so beautiful . I'm off to read the novella now . I can't wait to see what Sadie writes next :)

I loved this book.
It had me in tears of joy and heartache. At times I wanted to bang Christopher and Mia's heads together but the HEA made a great ending. I love the way the author let us get to know every single charecter in the book. I felt like I was actually part of their friendships.
Well worth the read.
Another one would be really good.
This was an enjoyable enough read. Needed some serious editing and a lot of scenes could've been cut. At times the writing was very good, but then it was fall back into so-so- writing. There were a lot of scenes that she could've gone deeper in, but she glossed over. 3.5 stars.
