Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose is just the second book I've read by this author, but I can already tell she's going to be one of my favorites! I love angsty NA romance, and she did a stellar fucking job keeping me captivated by this one. There was never a moment where I wasn't either intrigued, entertained, or fanning myself. Her writing style is addictive, and I know I'll be going back for more!

MY REVIEW: can also be found on my blog:

REWRITE THE STARS: Is a full length, stand alone coming-of-age romance novel by Charleigh Rose. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives.’

In this we meet the four speed demons 'The Sons of Eastlake' (Eros, Lathan, Tres, and Sebastian) four daredevil boys on bikes that take risks to a whole new level performing stunts in a globe of death each night at a travelling carnival. These boys live by one rule.

I never thought running away with a carnival sounded fun, until I read Rewrite the Stars. What starts as a spark filled one-off encounter between Evan and Sebastian morphs into a turning point for the rest of their lives. One night of fun changes Evan’s life more than she could have ever imagined. When she once again runs into Sebastian and his crew, who ruined her life with one encounter. Her life changes even more, but maybe for the better this time?

Charleigh Rose takes us on an adventure into
If you love angsty NA novels this book is a MUST READ!! Not only does it check these boxes, it also brings an amazingly vibrant carnival feel to the pages.

I love carnival and circus plots. It always sounds so much more exotic on the pages than in real life. Maybe that's the reason why they draw me in, every single time.

Rewrite the Stars was all kinds of wonderful.

And it delivered in more ways than I could count. From a wonderful cast, to a fantastic plot, it depicted young love and featured the

I finished this book early today and as soon as I finished it, I already wanted to start reading it again. I didn’t want to part with these characters. I could live in their world forever. They sucked me into their orbit from the get-go and now I’m sad the journey is over and there is no more Evan and Seb for me to enjoy.

This story is very unique and I loved it so much. I hope Charleigh is planning on writing a book for each of the McAllisters. I know Ero’s w

This author is special! She writes fantastic!

Sebastian isn't the easiest to like/love but at the same time he kind of is. If it makes sense?
Evan is a strong person, she needed to be when her world turned so much! I don't know how I would cope.
I loved how we got to see how it went in their world. I loved the Vixxen it's special and I think fun.
What I really wanted was to see and know more from Drew and Savvy (forgot how to write her name). I know it's a closed chapter but I would've thought if t
And this book wraps up my reading challenge for 2018. I really enjoyed this, not counting the endless wait for the book to go live on Amazon. Not that I was excited to read this or anything.

I had a blast at the carnival! Evan and Sebastian were fun to hang out with and I loved the side characters (Eros and Kat, I hope you guys are up next!). I’m really glad this met up to my expectations.

Oh my gosh this book and all the damn feels. My heart can’t take the beating it was just given, damn it.

When I came across this beauty I knew it was something I just HAD to read. It intrigued me and boy, I sure as hell wasn’t ready for what the book dealt out that’s for sure.

I can honestly admit I’ve never once read a book that involves the lives of people in a carnival so this beauty popped my cherry. I’m super fucking glad it was my first.

I am seriously becoming more and more addicted to Charleigh Rose’s books! I was all over when she announced she was writing a new standalone book set in a carnival that involved two people from very different worlds falling in love. I mean, doesn’t it sound great? Now I can confirm it totally does because, again, Charleigh’s newest novel was simply wonderful to read. Get ready for the rolle

Rewrite the Stars went above and beyond my expectations.

I never thought I would fall in love with a carnival-themed romance, despite having a fondness towards them. Charleigh Rose made this amusing and entertaining—beyond everything expected and anticipated by creating an environment vastly different to what we’re used to in romance.

I was drawn towards the bright lights, unique setting and exhilarating atmosphere surrounding the carnival. Both Evan and Sebastian grabbed my attention. Between ha

At 18, Evangeline “Evan” Thorne led a privileged life until her family fell apart. Losing most of what she’s known and looking to feel a connection, Evan’s choices are limited and she decides to take a chance on the unknown by joining the carnival for the summer.

I absolutely loved this book. I devoured this New Adult story of star-crossed lovers in on day completely unable to put it down. Charleigh Rose took the bad boy/good girl trope and gave a refreshingly unique story. The bad boy, jerk, stand offish hero paired with the feisty, ready-for-new-beginnings girl within this unique setting had me greedily flipping the pages. The only thing I'm sad about wi

It was ok. I was expecting a little more but its your typical bad boy romance. I never truly connected with Evan and their love wasn’t believable to me.
Can’t make up my mind whether I want to give this 2 or 3 stars.

I'm so impressed with Charleigh! Rewrite the Stars is perfect!

On the outside Evangeline Thorne has it all. The perfect house, perfect car, prestigious parents, the best of friends......a perfect life. None of it is real. Evangeline, "Evan" doesn't feel like herself anywhere until the day she walks unto the grounds of a carnival. It's not the roar of the crowds, the fried foods or the games that pull her in but a beautiful green eyed guy named Sebastian McAllister.

“You eighteen yet?" Sebastian asks.
"No." I breathe.
His hand squeezes my waist right before his lips touch mine.
"Pity." He says. "See you next year, princess.”

HOLY FUCK! This book. I was actually going through a serious book hangover after finishing The Fallen Men series when I started Rewrite the Stars. Well, it was exactly what I needed because I was pulled into Sebastian and Evan ’s story from the very first sentence. It was one of my most anticipated release of the fall a

Books like this are why I read romance. You know the stories that make you remember those first kisses, the tummy butterflies, the feelings like your heart would literally break in two. I binge read it in one 2am session and went to bed with a very happy heart. Gah!

It's Angsty deliciousness with a capital A, where not everyone is what they seem, and not everyone will get their HEA. I loved the twists with the characters, the feeling that the story was somehow just a little "other", it gave me a

beklediğim kadar iyi çıkmadı. Normaldi, saçma olan çok noktası vardı ama hiç girip o noktaları ortaya dökesim yok..
yine de 250 sayfalık bir kitap için çoğa saçmalıktan daha iyi bir kurgusu vardı ve sıkmıyordu.. rahat rahat okudum..

Rewrite the Stars was one of my most anticipated release of the fall and for a reason. Charleigh Rose never disappoints with her stories and once again, this unique novel was amazing! She totally captured the atmosphere of a carnival where this story takes place and the chemistry between her main couple and the suspense had me enthralled all read long.

4.5 STARS!
I love Charleigh Rose, after fourth standalone I can say she is one of my favorites authors. I love her ability how she delivers character's charm and magnetism, their chemistry. I am always pulled in really interesting state of mind where I have this special feeling I can't even describe; like I am floating...

All this enthusiasm was also main reason I weren't bothered too much with predictable ending and too much drama right before ending.
What also bothered me (slightly??) was too ob

I devoured this book in two days and loved every sleepless second. Charleigh Rose knows how to check alllll my boxes, and Rewrite the Stars was no exception:

Dark, mysterious bad boy? Check!
Gritty, captivating setting? Check!
Page-turning suspense? Check!
Tons of sexual tension? Checkity-check-check!

Five giant ferris wheel stars for this carnival ride of a romance.

Frustrated by her parent's overinvolvement in her life. It may seem perfect, her life of wealth and luxury, but it isn't until she's amongst the glittering lights and grime of the carnival that she feels alive. That ends the next day though, when life as she's known it is flipped upside down. The handsome boy on the motorcycle is now associated with the attack that ruined her life, leaving her hurt, angry, and fighting to make it to the end of high

3,6. Não gostei do enredo, que foi surreal.
Adoro os livros dessa autora.
Porém, me deu a impressão de que foi escrito às pressas, não desmerecendo o trabalho dela...

I’m not really surprised I loved this book. I’ve also never read a story before that was set at a carnival. That’s one of the reasons why I was wanting to get my hands on RtS.

I went into this book thinking I knew how the story would turn out, yet it went in a completely different direction. Charleigh proved me wrong and I’m not mad about it.

One of the things I loved about RtS was the bond between the four guys. They may not see eye to eye often, but they’re family and always have each other’s ba
