The Stars in the Sky
A tall, dark-eyed, slow-talkin’ cowboy who wants nothing to do with me because he’s a card-carrying Republican and I represent everything he hates.
Yeah, you get the idea. I couldn’t care less if he (or anyone else) doesn’t agree with me.
Problem is, our chemistry. There was that one time I saw him naked. (A ...more

I've been thinking of how I can review this book without giving away spoilers - especially since I hate those. I also don't want to recap the blurb, so you'll have to excuse my attempt.
This book, gah! It is SO much more than a romance novel. It's a book about us humans and how we judge people based on labels and not on their characters.
There are so many labels we have in this world: man, woman, boy, girl, LGBT, straight, right-handed, left-handed, vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, republican, ...more
Will is a man, big and strong, arrogant, hot-headed and opinionated little does he know that his met his match in Marie! Marie is a woman with strong morals and strong beliefs, including politics. Upon meeting the rude Will, which is not the most conventio ...more

The Stars in the Sky, book two of Leslie McAdam’s Giving You series, may have just snagged “favorite” status away from book one, The Sun and the Moon. I said may have. While all of her characters are original, hilarious, fun, sexy, and sometimes too smart for their own good, Ms. McAdam gives us unique storylines in each book. And I absolutely loved this one! Her rich descriptions of central California coast ranch and farmlands made me feel as if I were there. Since this is an area I am very fami ...more
While this is the second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone. This story has the whole opposites attraction thing going on.
On one side, you’ve got hippie, tree-hugging, liberal Marie Diaz-Austin
and the other side you’ve conservative, modern day Marlboro man, Republican, Will Thrash.
And I must say their first encounter was memorable and funny as Marie rushes into a washroom, only to find one wet, naked and hot man. And then, soon after that, he returns the favour! Will and ...more
Leslie writes a perfect story here, intense burning chemistry, kinky, hot sex scenes, a sassy, strong female lead and Will, the delicious kinky cowboy that made my head pound, heart hum and knees weak.
As I mention this story had an intense burning chemistry that built up between Marie and Will ...more
Chicka wow, wow!!!!!
Just one thought before my crazy/crush ramblings :
Review to come on release day!
Oh my, oh my, hotness!!
Sometimes you fall in love with a fictional character and sometimes this character can make you all mushy, and sometimes it’s both!
And Will Thrash, the cowboy made me all mushy and I was giggling a lot!!!
When a “conservative” republican met a liberal democrat, for an encounter tha...more
I'll take a big bite of cowboy Will's delicious country valentine anytime, any day! I really really love the way Leslie writes... her story and characters are so warmly engaging, deeply moving and so very special! Such a great read!
I love the fiery stubbornness of Marie and all of her wonderful ideals to make the planet a better place; her giving heart is big and her fun energy is contagious! I fell for Will instantly! He is one seriously gorgeous hunk of calm, cool, and collected ...more
You know that saying t** for tat well the first few meetings of Will and Marie are in some compromising positions and Will's reaction to Marie's position is most entertaining, "Mr. Handsome Shower Man stood there, staring at me. Then his eyes raked down my body, then up, then down again. Then he shook himself and turned red, shoving his hands in his jeans." I fell hardcore in love with Will, "so, no meat? ***t. What do you eat, girl? No wonder you're so skinny." His brows furrowed and he looked ...more
What happens when two people with opposing views on major issues end up running into each other literally? Well if these two are hot and attracted to each other you get a bunch fireworks both in and out of the bedroom.
This is Leslie McAdam's follow up to her debut novel The Sun and The Moon. These books are stand alone's in a series but you don't have to read the first book to read this one. But I recommend reading the first one because it was really good.
Our main characters are Marie ...more
Here is something you might not know about me, I love cowboys. I think it all steams from the first harlequins I would borrow from my grand-mamma. But every time I read about a cowboy I get the warm fuzzes, my heart beats just a little bit faster. So already Will had an advantage.
Now I started this one as an e-book, but then I bought the paperback signed, and well I had to wait and read it that way. So glad I did because NOTHING beats a paperback. Oh and my favorite rea ...more
Will and Marie have REALLY opposing views. They would never have met had it not been for the therapeutic Headlands Program. Will Thrash runs the ranch ...more
Leslie has once again delivered us a carefree, funny, sexy book with two characters who couldn't be any more different from one another! This book was so different than Leslie's first but no less amazing.
We have the hippy, vegan Democrat and the uber sexy, kinky, Republican cowboy. These characters will make you bust up laughing at the silly arguments and situations they have with one another and positively swoon at their hotter than hot kinkiness. These two clash heads from the get go ...more
When "opposites atrack" is not so "opposites".
What a wonderful and delightful story to read! This is a stand alone that is also part of the Giving You... series, and this time we know more about Marie (Amelia's best friend) and we get to know Will, a sexy rancher that seems to be the complete opposite of Marie....or so we thought.
At first, Marie and Will couldn't be more different. Different beliefs, different life styles, different personalities, they agreed to ...more
I've been lucky enough to have encountered quite a few new author's while doing some reviews. Leslie is a new one for me, believe me she delivered an amazingly funny 5 star story. She didn't disappoint me in the least. I received The Stars In The Sky by Leslie McAdam as an ARC in a exchange for an honest and spoiler free review.
What do you get when a stubborn sexy, alpha ranching cowboy who only wears Wranglers that drives a pick up truck meets a coloured hair, vegan, full of tattoos with an e ...more
After reading the Sun and the Moon, I knew I was ready for Leslie McAdam to throw some more sexiness my way. She not only brings us the hottest, dirty talking guys around, she includes gems of inspiration in her story to shed a whole new light on a topic. With Marie and Will she proves that opposites do attract and that underneath the beliefs, appearance, and even our taste in music there are similarities. Marie and Will are volatile, smokin' ho ...more
I laughed myself silly at points in this book and couldn’t help but draw comfort from the fact that there are some sources of political commentary at the moment that should really read this and then take stock of the fact that they just take themselves too seriously!
This was a funny, sexy read, one that didn’t take too much thinking about and but one that blew away the political clouds that seems to like waft around and linger like a bad smell.
So what the heck was going on in the author head whe ...more

This book got so hot and so intence I didn't burn dinner....it boiled over....
I don't know how she does it but this Author writes books that are beyond usual erotic but with so much heart and life experience! I've never read one of her books and not felt moved in some way. Her characters grow right before your eyes but in believable ...more
Will is a republican rancher.
Marie is a vegan liberal.
Do they get along?
Will calls her another f@cking liberal.
Marie call him an @sshole.
Because the attraction is so intense they really don't know what to make of it.
Well that's not true. Will seems to know exactly what he wants from Marie. But she can't commit to anything the Republican, meat eating, anti-feminist says or wants! Can she?No that would be absurd, they don't agree on anything.
She drives a ...more
Bleeding heart liberal and Democrat Marie takes a new job as a summer camp counselor, and she literally stumbles upon conservative cowboy right wing Republican Will. Two people who are complete opposites fall for each other in more ways than one. S ...more
One hippy, democratic, liberal and one Cowboy, conservative, Republican….. THIS should be interesting! :) I really really enjoyed this story, learning to open your heart, and finding that the political labels are not what matters. That all in all, core values of both parties are very similar they are just expressed in different ways. Learning that WHAT you are isn’t as important as how you are treated and treat other peop ...more
Marie is introduced as the vegan Democrat who is doing a summer internship at a ranch helping underprivileged kids. Will is the Republican ranch owner who antagonizes the feisty Marie as soon as he meets her.
I really liked Will and Marie’s first encounter, it was funny and sexy. Will doesn’t seem too bothered by Marie and her beliefs he wants her regardless. Marie has a harder time wrapping her head around ...more
From the very beginning Leslie did not mess about she dove us straight in the story and into the world of Marie who takes on a summer job helping children with disabilities at the Heartlands Ranch owned by the ever so sexy Cowboy Will Thrash.
Marie literally crashes into Will and from there it's just a roller coaster of a ride.
I love Marie she is so feist ...more
