Did not finish 50%
I have to give up, I'm at 50% and still no more connected to the story than I was at 15% or even 25%. The characters are presented as both mature and yet still childish, we're expected to believe that love comes easily with no effort, and the dialogue they share is incredibly formal. The believability just isn't there and despite the anticipation presented with the unknown to come, it wasn't worth it for me to continue reading.

When I read the book description of ‘Rewrite the Stars’ I knew this was a book I wanted to read. I love reading romance novels and this book just sounded so good. And I also loved that cover. So I was super excited when I received the email saying I could read this book.

In ‘Rewrite the Stars’ we meet Claire. Claire has spent her summers with her mother at the Prescott’s Beach House for years. And for years she spent her summers there with Mallory and her brother Colin. After Claire’s mom passes

Childhood friends meet again and kindle romance. Snobby family dynamics and secrets lead to heartbreak for Claire and Colin. Twist at the end! "Book was provided by Caffinated reads with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." ...more

Let’s try this again.

Sorry, peeps. I’m afraid this is going to be one of those cryptic reviews where I can’t say much for fear of giving anything away.

I vacillated between cursing the author aloud, and in the next breath calling her an evil genius. This story’s twists have twists *shrugs* No joke *shakes head* One sums me up: agog (y’all know how much I love my one-word summations *smirks*)

On paper, this book reads as a star-crossed lovers’ story, but th

This was a very sweet, yet deep read. I love that Claire and Colin had grown up together. As Claire grows older, things take a bit of a dark turn, but I tend to enjoy such books a lot. So it wasn't an issue for me. Although there were parts that just broke my heart.
Rewrite the Stars has, I think, a bit of a second chance-romance feel to it. Because Claire and Colin definitely shared a sp

This was one of those book where I expected one thing,but unfortunately got something else.Something that has nothing to do with the blurb.
I really didn't like this book.
First,I just couldn't picture Claire and Colin in love,their love seemed so fake to me.Then,in the middle of the book I though that things got better for Claire,but then she did something very stupid and completely ruined my opinion of her.And then in the end the author put some shocking twist that left me with my mouth open and

This book differed from any I have read before. Being familiar with the author’s work I expected to have a good time with the story and the characters. The story lived up to my expectations, the characters not so much. However, despite my disappointment with the portrayal of the characters, I enjoyed this story for what it was, an emotional read filled with secrets and lies.

Everyone in this story had secrets they prayed would never come to light. If these secrets were to be revealed it would des

This book was quite interesting. At first, I was enjoying the childhood friends to lovers aspect of the story, the next, it just went a bit dark. There is so much family drama coming from the hero's side. Sooo much deception, old money facade drama. I couldn't keep up. You have a Colin our hero who has a demanding father who pretty much has mapped out Colin's life for him, to take over the family business. Colin's dream is definitely NOT to do that, but he's so afraid of his father, it makes his ...more

Julieann Dove is a new author to me, and I must say, I really like her style of writing. I easily fell into the story line and the pace kept my interest all the way to the very end. I liked Claire right from the start. She'd been through so much, dealing with her ill mother followed later by her mother's death, and I emotionally connected with her. She was someone I could call a friend.

The author's writing was so heartfelt and genuine. There were scenes that deeply saddened me with Claire and C

Her mother’s best friend insists she returns to their summer home, something she did with her mom every year, to enjoy a summer break before starting her new job.

There aren’t many people who get to experience the lifestyle of the rich – but even so Claire is hesitant to joint the Prescott family for a week. For one thing – it used to be something she did with her mother & since she passed Claire would be making the trip solo, and for another – she could feel awkward and out of place for the entire time. But she is worn down and decides to take the week. There she runs into Colin – who she used to run and play with h as a child but she hasn’t seen in the ...more

The beginning of this book did a great job at reeling me in. Claire was an immediately likeable character and I was curious to learn more about summers at the beach house with the Prescott family. The romance between her and Colin kicked off very quickly, but I wasn’t put off by the fast pace. I actually wish more of the book kept up that pace, because after the first section of the book, it seemed to really slow down, but then the ending actually felt rushed. I liked the overall storyline and t ...more

I was provided a copy for review purposes.

Julieann created a story that is full of depth. I liked the idea that the main characters were trying to get past the family drama and make a relationship work. Claire and Colin knew each other growing up. They had spent time together in the summers, but there was never a relationship between them. It drew me out of the story when they were instantly deeply in love with each other. I missed the suspense and buildup of the relationship.  I did like that t

This is a romance. This is a story about feeling unworthy. This is a story of being from the wrong social Class.
Claire and Collin spent summers together. They were friends who spent the summer playing and enjoying being children. They go there separate ways once they are older. Only To run into each other once again at the beach after Colin has been abroad for several years. When they see each other there is an instant attraction. There is one problem, Colon is from a very rich and influential

This book was okay. And the ending pissed me off. There's nothing worse than that. There really isn't.

There wasn't really a connection between Colin and Claire. I honestly felt like there was more of a connection between Claire and Alex than Claire and Colin.

I did find myself getting distracted often, the book unable to hold my interest for long periods of time. I just felt that this book had so much potential and it fell flat. I feel that Claire and Colin's relationship could have been specta

I’m struggling a bit with this one, because well. I’ve never written a review on a book that I DNF’ed. So let me just tell you why I initially chose to review this book. The cover, honestly it’s gorgeous and I’m still so in love with it. And I mean the synopsis definitely interested me because I’m always up for star crossed lovers romance. Like yes please!

In less than a hundred pages, I knew then that this book is a fail. This book caught my attention because of its interesting blurb and its beautiful cover. Sadly, the story was not able to deliver.

I had trouble keeping up on who’s brain I was in most of the time. There were no clear transitions.

The characters talk in an unnatural vocabulary. It’s like synonyms replaced commonly used words. They sounded unrealistic and odd.

And the conclusion seemed as if it was a lazy solution to all the problems

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Claire is mourning her Mom's death, and this place and these people hold so many memories that include her mom. So, it's hard for her. Claire and Colin are childhood friends who haven't seen each other in years. I know they have known each other forever, but it's been a while, and the romance happened super fast. Too fast to feel much of the chemistry, but the lust was definitely there. Shortly after, things get serious, the story takes a darker turn. My heart

Rewrite the Stars by Julieann Dove is a story about two people from completely different worlds falling in love and the obstacles they have to overcome in order to be together.

Ms. Dove is a new to me author and I enjoyed her style of storytelling. I was pulled in to the characters Journey and felt all their emotions, both painful and loving.

I confess I felt like I was on a roller coaster waiting to see how the H and h we're going to get together. The author did a good job with the story arc and
