I was given an ARC for an honest review.

“No more running all the time, no more hiding.” He held me tight. “Just easy days. Predictable days of work followed by lazy afternoons at the creek. This is how my life would be. With you.”

I was so excited to start this installment, knowing we were finally going to meet Prentiss's boyfriend, Jackson. Going into this book i felt we already knew him pretty well with all the flash backs. But things are not always what they s

Minor spoilers alert!!!

The truth exploded all over this fourth installment of Beyond The Stars as Prentiss finally learns about Gallatin’s true nature and the reason why his people invaded her small town.

“I’m here because of Cato.” He walked around the side of the water to our spot in the sun. “She dragged me to this location against my will.” Gallatin

It’s hard to say more about what Gallatin reveals without giving away too much of it.

Someone Prentiss cares about dies and another does something

Oh man. This episode was so fraught with emotions, I don't even know what to do with myself right now. THE FEELS! Way to not pull any punches, Leigh!

**Contains mild spoilers to previous episodes**

There are a TON of questions being answered, but if you think it'll make matters more simple, you've got another thing coming. Now I'm just more confused! Gallatin seems so much like a good guy, who wants all the same things as Prentiss does, BUT... a relationship between them can never be simple. Life

MY REVIEW (5/5 stars) What can I say! This author pulled it out of the bag and threw us for a loop this time. This section was shorter as only 61 pages for chapters 16-20, however, the impact of the details were explosive! Spoilers are here at a minimum for review only- so do not read if you don't want to know.

Cato has given Gallatin bad news about the same time frame as Prentiss gets bad news also. Gallatin shows his feelings more with Prentiss but then again, she realizes she cares too. They

~~I received this in exchange for an honest review~~

OK, so this installment has made me question who I really like in this book (i.e., Jackson or Gallatin). This book gives you a more in depth look at what is going on, and why they took the towns people. You also see a side of Gallatin that I never saw coming at all. In previous books that Leigh has written, I have been pretty adamant about who I liked and who I loved. Who I thought should be together, and who is just there for "fun". I can say

As Prentiss' learns more of the captivity situation, and the motives and reasoning for everything...something tragic happens and she starts further questioning whether to trust Gallatin or not.

Well dagum...I wanted to hate Gallatin. TeamJackson right?

As much as we want to hate Gallatin for who he is and everything that has happened, it's kind of hard when he's so different from what we expected.

While Prentiss deals with whether or not to trust Gallatin or if she should believe everything he has

I really enjoyed this installment. I would definitely recommend this series. It was emotional, romantic and ended in a way that leaves you wanting the next one now. A lot of information was given. We know the entire backstory and why the kidnapping happened. We also know if the kidnappers are human or not. (I'm not telling. You have to read it yourself.) Obviously from the title you can guess we know something about Jackson. We found out what happened to the other people as well. It ended with a ...more

Omg this series keeps getting better and better. I need to know what is going to happen next. My emotions are so conflicted right now.

She wants to believe Gallatin, but it's hard. After a tragic event she knows she needs to find a way to save everyone. But she doesn't know how with the band of rogues out there. Who

Another great segment of Behind The Stars! You find out more and get some questions answered but now emotions are getting involved and feelings are causing confusion! This is playing out so well and keeps me guessing! I love the shortness of each novel. You are given enough to keep your interest and you are delving in and BOOM it's over and I need the next installment!! Can't wait to see where Prentiss is headed! ...more

I'm in love with this series. This Episode starts to pull together what we've been trying to see. With the title of the book, I expected to meet Jackson but had no idea just what he would bring to the situation. Things start to turn. Hang on for the ride people. It's worth it!! ...more

This book is summarized as Episode 4 because it begins with chapter sixteen, where Episode 3 concluded, and ends on chapter twenty. Prentiss is now very close to Gallatin and she is confused about her mixed feelings. Jackson has never made her feel like her dreams mattered, not like Gallatin. He always told her what she should do instead of allowing her to make her own decisions. When something terrible happens with Braxton and Flora, her brother and best friend, she is forced to rethink everyth ...more

Prentiss has come to realize that she is falling in love with Gallatin. She in conflicted with this since she knows she is supposed to love Jackson. The thing is she is starting to question that love because she has never felt the way she does with Gallatin when she is with Jackson.

Prentiss realizes that instead of really gather information she has been playing in the afternoon and swimming. She decides to fix this but things take a turn for the worse when Gallatin tells her who he really is an

The truth will set you free…..or will it? Prentiss finds her life thrown into indecision when she learns the truth about why Gallatin and his people are keeping everyone captive. This knowledge confuses Prentiss even more. Gallatin and Prentiss spend some of their last days together. Unsure of where that leaves them in the future.

Trying to get herself back to the task at hand, Prentiss can’t help but feel torn over her feelings towards Gallatin and Jackson. Each pulling on a piece of her heart.

In this episode, Prentiss and Gallatin become more closer.
This time Prentiss is able to know the truth about why she and her friends are prisoners, who really is Gallatin and what's going on.
The truth is not easy for Prentiss because of the feelings she has for Gallatin. Infact, their relationship now is changed.
Prentiss in this episode has to deal with two sad things, but I don't want to say what they are. But there is s

And Prentiss doesn't know what she's going to do, even though she's discovered all the secrets.
