Yo, I loved Skye and Lucas. They were adorable and had so much sexual tension.

Star-Crossed was surprisingly good. It definitely gave some twists and turns that kept me engaged. I especially want to know more about this druid and how he can sometimes see Skye, who happens to be a seer, in her little death visions.

Now at the beginning, when Lucas and Skye met it felt a bit awkward. However, along the way it was growing on me. It didn't matter if I was kind of falling asleep while at work or in be
Skye has visions of deaths. When Detective Lucas triggers a vision, she is surprised that the killer can sense her presence. She is compelled to find out if this means that she can change the fate of the woman victim in her vision. This brings her into contact with Lucas again as he has a connection to the woman. He quickly figures out that Skye may be able to help him figure out a string of murders that he is currently working on. However, her explanation is difficult for him to believe.

I received and ARC of this book and loved every second of it. There are twists and turns on every page. The authors do a great job of making you feel like you are apart of the action. This book also has some pretty hilarious moments, I laughed out loud several times. I’m looking forward to the rest of this journey!! I have read all of Jessica Wayne’s novels but this is my first of Meg Anne. I am very excited to read her other books!!!

There is a feeling of Destiny to this narrative, a facet that seems to annoy the characters as much as it amuses the reader.

Blood feuds, unbelievable attraction, hidden fates, lost realms, forgotten histories and new paths to discover... it's all here, plus a whole dose of danger and appeal. Skye, while still bogged down by things she can't control, is a strong and cautious character - one that steps up, even when it's obviously not in her best interest. Lucas is the kind of protagonist that sed

The story starts off brilliantly. Within seconds I was captured watching a scene unfold in an art gallery and eagerly trying to solve the puzzle.

I immediately connected with Skye’s love of coffee, but what intrigued me was her visions.
At first, I found them hazy as I tried to picture it through her eyes. As the story progressed the imagery and detail came to life bringing clarity to it all. I love the way she interacts within her dreams. I don’t want to say more about that as I feel I would gi

Wow! This book was so alluring and captivating. The blurb pulled me right in, if I didn't have to work I would've finished it in one sitting! This book was filled with so much action, suspense, and so many twists and turns. All of that would have been plenty for a great book but then you add in the fantasy and the amazing characters and the slow-burn romance between Skye and Lucas; that's just a recipe for an amazing and successful book.

Both authors did a fantastic job of making the book read as

Amazing story of magic and gypsies. Skye is a gypsy seer, only she sees nothing but death. Lucas is a police detective, he doesn't believe in magic and things like that. From the moment they meet, their lives are intertwined. Can they manage to stay alive long enough to explore their intense connection? ...more

Druids, Seers, and Magic, Oh My!

What an awesome introduction to a world filled with danger and the supernatural! I was drawn into this story from beginning to end so much so that the rest of the world just melted away! Lucas and Skye are amazing characters, and I dare you not to fall in love with them! I held my breath with ever passing chapter hoping they would be victorious in their fight against evil!

I did not know what to expect from this book, however, once I started reading I was fully invested in Skye and Lucas and the amazing world that Meg and Jessica created. You can just feel the sizzling heat coming off the pages between Skye and Lucas and the sweet connection between Lizzy and James is fun to read. This book is full of twists and turns, evil, magic, romance and mystery! I am excited to see what happens in book two - highly recommended exciting new book by the talented Meg Anne and ...more

2.5 Rounded up to 3. I think we have a really good premise here but we lost a little in the execution making it not as cohesive as I would have liked. There were some aspects of this story that were super rushed, and some that really didn't seem to move forward at all. For instance, the character relationships, to me, felt super rushed, they go from just meeting to BFF's practically overnight. I also felt the chemistry between Sky and Lucas felt a little awkward and forced. It was awkward in tha ...more

To be honest with you, I could not put this book down. I read three or four chapters a day. Reading this book has been shocking to me in unexpected ways. Lucas and Skye are both different, so different from each other that no one could ever imagine that they could fit together. Lucas is a detective and Skye is an awesome artist. Their lives could not be more different. But somehow throughout the book, their destinies merge together.

Skye is determined to help Lucas solve a crime and along the wa

This is a fast-paced read with romance and tons of dark magic.

Skye is a Gypsie and a Seer, whose visions always allow her to view someone's death. She usually doesn't try to get involved, since she's learned it doesn't change anything anyway. But when one vision leaves her with the strong desire to help, she soon finds herself wrapped up in the case of a serial killer, who is so much more than he seems. Not only that, but the detective she runs into is all that she does and does not need. But sh

I have read books written by both of these authors and I know how extremely talented they are, so when I heard that they would be doing a book together I was really excited as they both have very different styles of writing so I knew it would be interesting to see how well their writing combined together.

Skye Giovanni has been nursing a secret since she was seven years old. She's a seer, able to see what happens in the future. To her dismay, most of what she sees involves deaths at every turn. Many of which she can't stop no matter how much she may want to. Her life is soon turned upside down when she meets Lucas MacConnell. The fact that their lives are intertwined doesn't matter. The man makes her wants things she never knew she wanted. If she's to succeed in putting a stop to the chaos that n ...more

Some times co written books work and other times they don't and I m glad to say it definitely work with this book, also the way magic is addressed is great and refreshing compared to some other books I have recently read.
