"You and I, we written in the stars way before we ever even knew the other existed"
Hands down my favorite quote!

I had won this book in a giveaway and I am so glad I did. It is the first book in the "In the Moments" trilogy. I absolutely loved everything about it. For me, I really don't like reading books with Love Triangles but with this book even though the Author made it heartbreaking it was enjoyable. Of course I got frustrated but it was so well written that I loved it. The Author definitely

Now this is what I love. A book full of yummy hot sex, hot men and drama.

Who then she introduces her to her brother Eric. Yeah he's hot and all but he is also rude. She doesn't understand why after that day he never leaves her mind. Dreams about him

Ok so this book gets all kind of kudo points from me. I gave it 5 stars!! #1 the author is from VA, #2 the story takes place in VA, #3 I loved it!! It has drama, friendship, a love story, and two hot steamy men. Are you team Eric or team Kyle?

This story is so hard to talk about and not give spoilers. Caroline is a second year college student with her bitch of a roommate Piper. She has a rude awakening on an early Saturday morning from an irate student who "has gone postal." She then tries to

3.5/4 stars so let me start with why i did like it, i was able to relate and connect with the characters. The college life, the hot boys and ray bans ;) the way the bffs talk to each other was very realistic and i really liked that. also the steamy scenes were HOT absolutely loved those parts lol it was sweet and romantic. Im not sure if it was just me but it seemed that the dialog was very...formal for the book. the way some of the characters spoke to each other didn't really match their ...more

Joan has amazed me! I am so surprised that this is her debut novel. I CAN'T believe all the emotion and drama she put into this book. She has such an ease and natural flow to her writing that makes it very fast paced read. I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END! The ending was so sweet, but the HEA is wide spread and all characters are touched. I got misty while reading a hard break up scene. I am so glad that this is the beginning of the series, because I didn't get enough of an Eric fix. Both Kyle and Eric ...more

I really liked this book. It was very good and well written. Caroline was a very strong character. She was very confused in how she felt about Kyle and Eric. But in the end she made a good decision. I loved Tara she was a sweet heart. Caroline's and Raleigh friendship was great. They went through something really hard. I am glad I read this book and I recommend it. You will not be disappointed! Good job Joan! I can't wait for the next book to come out!! :)

Let me just start off this review with what I loved most about this book. The characters were so awesome on their own merit; they didn’t need temper tantrums, excess drama, and immature attitudes to make their point. We ended up with three women who became great friends, the kind of friends any reader would love to have in real life.
Caroline is a mature college student who doesn’t enjoy a lot of drama in her life. She has seen firsthand how quickly life can pass by with the death of her father

Ok, I think I'm going to do this backwards and start with the not so good. Don't worry, there's not much, and I want to get it out of the way so I can talk about all the good stuff.

1. desirable - ack! Too much desirable. That word was everywhere.

I loved this book and had trouble putting it down. Caroline and her friend Raleigh were in an accident over the summer between their freshman and sophomore year of college. Raleigh was badly injured and couldn't come back for her sophomore year. This means that Caroline had to find someone new to room with. Which is how the story begins. Caroline's new roommate Piper likes to try all the boys at college. Whether they have a girlfriend or not. This is how Caroline meets Tara one morning very ...more

"Relationship are never easy, and you can’t force the heart into something it just can’t be.”


In The Stars is a really enjoyable love story that is all about knowing when you meet that “one” person that was written in the stars to be meant for you This book contains a love triangle and if you are like me, you will be happy to know that the triangle does not include cheating.

"When I think about Eric, I go all full blown lustful. When I think about Kyle, I feel lust as well, but it isn't as strong. Not as uncontrollable of a sensation as it is for Eric. On the flip side, though, with Kyle I also feel happy and important. Eric, on the other hand, seems to frustrate me and make me feel little."

Caroline has her world rocked and torn into two directions by two mouthwatering guys!!! Every girls dream right???? You would think so..... but what happens when your feelings

Caroline's Saturday morning was not what she expected. She woke up to a banging on her door to find a girl her age upset and looking for her boyfriend's fling. And that is where we meet Tara, they end up going to coffee together and talking about why she was banging on her door. She was upset and her overprotective detective brother needed to see her.

I first fell in love with the cover of In The Stars. I think it is breathtaking. ;-) Then I read the blurb and I just knew that I needed to read it.

I was mesmerized with this book. There is a love triangle but no cheating which is a huge plus in my opinion. I really dislike cheating.

The heroine was Caroline. She was feisty and real. I really, really liked her except, her indecisiveness irritated me a little. I understood to an extent because I liked both men but then again I just wanted her to

In The Stars was a feel good book. It's the type of book that makes you happy. It’s a great love story with some twist along the way.

I loved the main character Caroline Reyes who is a no nonsense type of girl. She said and did exactly what she wanted to do. Her heart is torn between two men. I know that makes it sound like a love triangle but I promise it's not.

We have Kyle who we meet when she's helping a friend through physical therapy. They have a pretty hot and heavy connection. The

In the Stars is the debut work from author Joan Duszynski and kicks off her In the Moments Series. It was a sweet and hot beginning with potential to sizzle more as the series continues.
College sophomore Caroline Reyes is woken up early one morning by a very angry “other woman” and has no way of knowing it at the time, but things are about to change in almost status quo life. Turns out the angry gal, Tara, is the girlfriend of the guy her roommate has been shagging. They soon form a

Caroline is your average college sophomore trying to get through school without her best friend Raleigh. Caroline and Raleigh were the best of friends who were in a horrible accident that didn't allow Raleigh to return to school and has since left Caroline with the skanky Witch of a roommate Piper.


It's hilarious (not for Tara) how Caroline and Tara meet. I can only imagine the drama's involved with college/dorm life and it seems to slap Caroline in the face on very

I really loved this book. This is the ultimate book about making a major love decision. Caroline meets two different men in the same day. Eric, the snarky detective who pisses her off and Kyle, the sweet Physical Therapist who immediately asks her out. Caroline spends time with Kyle and is drawn to him, but Eric keeps appearing in her dreams. She feels torn and knows a decision is coming and someone is going to get hurt. Maybe more than just one person.
The secondary characters are supportive and

What a brilliant story this was. I can't believe this is the authors debut novel. I also can't believe I waited this long to read it.
Caroline moves away to start college. Her best friend can't go as she's recovering from an accident they were both in. This story kicks off straight away which I loved. The storyline was brilliant. This is not an angsty book. It's a well-written and fast flowing story that I was pretty much glued to.
