3 Stellar Evolution Stars - ❤ Audible Review HERE

It is a great follow up to Falling Stars, I quiet enjoyed it.
I loved getting more of the gang.

Can’t wait to read Jackson’s story.

I liked the narration but she doesn’t do male voices at all and with male pov’s its kinda needed.
So that was just so so for me. Dual narration would have been perfect.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

This was just a quick follow up novella to Falling Stars. It was also setting up for the next story. It was super short, I read it in between handing out candy to trick or treaters. It was enough to get me excited about the next book and there were some hot spots that reminded me why I fell in love with Christopher in the first book, with all his tattoos and piercings. So hott!

I'm going to miss reading from Chris and Mia's point of view when the next book comes out. I love being in Chris's

I can't ever remember loving a novella so much ! It was beyond awesome to be able to catch up with Mia and Chris and see how their relationship had progressed. I cannot wait to read Jackson's story - he was totally breaking my heart. (view spoiler) ...more

OMG it was so sweet to have Chris and Mia back..!!
And I love how real Chris is.. not doll perfect like in some books... He has his faults and I love that about him..!

And I cannot believe Laney cheated on Jackson.. I would have expected this from Kat but from Laney.. that was a surprise..
But whatever.. that Bitch should burn..!!

It was great to catch up with the gang and what a romantic ending from a man who clearly adores his girl can't wait to read the next book about Jackson. :) ...more

Aww I hadn't actually realised how much I missed Chris and Mia.
A lovely little book and that ending was THE most romantic thing I have read in a long time. A bad boy with a big heart and a lot of love for his lady. SWOON
I hope we get another book about them but I look forward to Jacksons story.
My only critique is that it has a few grammatical errors along the way.
A great book none the less.

This was a very nice follow up to Falling Stars. I enjoyed catching up with the members of Hush and The Forgotten. I loved the additional information about Chris & Mia’s lives and finding out what has happened to the other group members.

I’m definitely a fan of these characters and I’m looking forward to reading the next book.

it was a nice follow up to falling stars but way too short!

I loved this novella follow up for Falling Stars it was a quick and hot read I cannot wait to read Jackson's story next ;)
Cute novella that asks more questions than it answers, but, Sadie mentions another book in the series that features Jackson's story. Interested in that one. ...more

Most of you know how disappointed I was with the first novel in this series, Falling Stars, where I lamented the actions of asshat Christopher. I was hesitant to read this when the author notified me it was available, but then remembered those brief moments where I did enjoyed the characters and their interactions seemed realistic, and took the plunge.

What an improvement! Although only novella length (though at 37 pages it was more like a short story), I can tell the author’s voice and style h

A 4.5 rounded to a 5 read for me. Stella Evolution is a follow-up novella to Falling Stars and what a great follow-up it was! Even though short, it was still fun, funny, sexy and addicting just as the first in the series is. A story any contemporary romance reader will fully enjoy, but if you are looking to read this, please (I beg of you) make sure to read Falling Stars first. You’ll miss out on the character growth, relationship growth, the vibe that was set within, antics, fun and much more t ...more

This review is my personal opinion and may contain: spoilers, quotes, rants, cussing (sometimes I cannot help myself) and a possible full on recap. I in no way want to ruin anyone’s book reading experience so please read my words with caution.

This short novella gives us more Hushed Mentality and The Forgotten. When Maggie was five months old, the girls when on their tour. Apparently Laney cheated on Jackson. He is spiraling out of control. Elliott and Serena are

Love Me Some Rock Stars! Stellar Evolution is the follow up novella for Falling Stars. Mia and Christopher seem to be settling into parenthood comfortably. This is a very, very short story so it is rushed and best if immediately follows reading Falling Stars. I have had a little time between the two, so it was a little stressing trying to catch up on so many characters. With two separate bands you will have to stay on your toes with this series. I am a little distressed, by the distance with thi ...more

So this has nothing to do with my review itself, but I am totally confused by the publication dates listed for this one and book 1... nevermind... it doesn't actually matter

I really liked this one. It wasn't as heavy and intense as the first one (not saying I don't like heavy and intense... I really do), it was light, quick, and fun! And by quick, I mean my Kobo says it was only about 94 pages, so super short (But hey, it's a novella. It's supposed to be short!). And because it was so short, t
Laurynne Gouws


So the Novella is pretty short, but definitely worth your time. It goes forth from a few months later. Someone cheats and they breakup, there's a wedding, a proposal and a pregnancy...

I admit I'd like to read more of Mia and Chris in the upcoming future so I hope that this series continues soon. I have some questions regarding what, how and why... so Sadie Grubor, please get to work on another installment :)

Stellar evolution is the process by which a star undergoes a sequence of radical changes during its lifetime.

This is a Short Follow up to Falling Stars 53 pages.

Well this short story did not drag nor did it repeat the situation with each of Christopher and Mia's POV!!! (read my review of Falling Stars). The author really let you know what as going on with ALL the band members. Some exciting and joyful and some sad.
There are a lot of loose ends - what happened with Kat & Richard, what is going on

This is a novella which completes the story of Chris and Mia from Falling Stars and sets the stage for Jackson's book.

I liked this one better than the full novel. It offered a much needed completion for Chris and Mia. I liked the new, happier Chris we met here. Mia also is different, more mature and confident, which I quite liked.

I liked the tone of the novella and the writing style was better. There were no repetitions and the dual POVs worked better than in Falling Stars where whole scenes w

Stellar Evolution is a short novella and picks up after Falling Stars. This novella bridges the gap between Falling Stars and H.I.T.S., and takes place after the bands tours end. Although this can be read as a stand-alone – READ Falling Stars first. Where Falling Stars centered on Chris and Mia’s relationship, this novella focuses on Chris and Jackson’s relationship as brothers, as well as getting to view Chris as a dad, and one of the best Vegas weddings ever.

Sadie takes the next step in this r

The Novella was way too short and ended way too suddenly. It was great seeing a little into the lives after, but I was sad about (view spoiler), I hope for a HEA for them in Hidden in the Stars. I hated that the author, strongly, that there was something going on and then just ended the story... but I'm fairly certain that the reason for the tease like that is too make the anticipation for Hidden in the Stars greater. It's working, a lot!

So glad for this follow up story of Chris and Mia. I read Falling Stars this past Fall, and I just stumbled on this story by mistake; I did not realize there was this follow up story. I'm so glad that I found it, because Falling Stars was one of those stories that kept me wondering for weeks after, what happened to the characters of this story. One of the things that I loved about the original that this one also followed, was the POV of both the male and female leads of the story. It is always g ...more

5 Electrified Guitars for Stellar Evolution

This is a short novella following up to Falling Stars, and my only complaint would be wanting more. I realize that would defeat the purpose of it being a novella, but I will fangirl when I want to. It just made me realize how much I have fallen for all of these characters. I have already read the next book, so I have a good idea of the context, but I would definitely say that this is not a stand alone. The bonus video scene is awesome as well.

What a tasty little morsel this short novella was. Only 53 pages but contained everything I felt was missing from the end of Falling Stars. It was so full of ooey gooey goodness that I wanted it to keep going. I loved getting a better glimpse of not just Mia & Christopher, but also of Serena and Elliot, too. I now have a crush on Elliot and I am even more excited to read about their journey as well as Mia and Christopher’s in later books. It was the perfect teaser for the second book in the seri ...more

Only giving it four stars, because it was sooooooo short!!! 36 pages, but a must to know what is too come!!

As I read posts from others about falling stars, I have to agree, there were a lot of errors grammatically, pronoun usage errors, homophones, etc...... But in all E-books I have read, they all have them!!!! I'd rather an author publish faster so I have the next book to read! I'm able to over look the mistakes and move on.........ultimately I'm reading for the story, not the grammatical err

An amazing addition to the series! I loved the novella just as much as a full length book! If you haven't found this author or her series yet then you are missing out!

I loved it!! Perfect follow up to Falling Stars. It was awesome to catch up with the bands & see how everyone was doing. I'm so thrilled to be back with Chris & Mia, even just for a little bit. Short but hott, sexy, funny & incredibly sweet. It did however leave me with some new questions!! Like what are Nic & Gwen hiding, what the hell is up with Kat & not to mention poor Jackson. I was thrilled to see he would be getting his own story next. Can't wait to see what happens next!! ...more

“If you didn't already know, we're expecting in about four and a half months." Elliott beamed. The guests raised glasses with congratulations in the air.

"He slipped one past a goalie!" Ryan cheered.

The beer I just sipped came out through my nose. Mia was choking on her water. Serena turned from Ryan to Elliott, smacking him on the chest. Mortification painted her red face.

"Did you teach him that?"

Elliott shrugged with a mischievous grin.”
“I know that look." I put one arm out in from of me. He didn't stop. "Chris, we have to get going." I backed up, scooting over to put the couch between us.

"What?" He feigned and innocent expression.

"You know what." He kept coming. I continued evasive maneuvers. "They're going to be waiting on us."

He shrugged. "It's not my wedding." His tongue darted out, wetting his bottom lip before sucking it back into his mouth. "I'd rather push that way too tight dress up around your waist and bend you over the couch.”
