Be careful what you wish for. Our heroine, Cara, learns that the hard way after years spent dreaming about escaping the big city and trading in the boring 9 to 5 grind for a life of travel and adventure. When her wish finally comes true, she realizes she may have ended up with more than she bargained for. She wanted travel and adventure, just not the kind that takes her nearly a thousand years into the future and onto a spaceship.

Cut Her Out In Little Stars is a story for anyone who has ever lo

Fantastic book by a new and upcoming author! I was given the opportunity to read this book as a beta reader and it had me locked in from the start! I have read this book twice now and could easily sit down for a third time. Syfy, fantasy, romance, friendship, betrayal; it checked all the boxes I love for a good read. The character development is great and the descriptive writing has you closing your eyes and being right there along for the ride. Edge of my seat and crying I was so excited yet so ...more

If you're looking for a cool-as-heck sci-fi romance with plenty of intrigue and excitement, you've come to the right place!

The book starts out with our protagonist, Cara DeLeon. She’s a normal woman living in New York and she’s bored with her life. She hates her job, she’s not in love with her boyfriend, and she’s desperate to leave the city. At the same time, she’s scared to make any changes for fear of never finding anything better. Then she climbs onto the subway and the train crashes, while

Whoa, I didn't expect this from the cover (and I usually don't read book blurbs). I read this in just a few days--I was hooked right in, so reading 400+ pages within a short time may also prove to skew reviewing.

For example, I thought this book could benefit from plot editing/tightening, mostly toward the end; I'm not sure if every little thing about character motives and actions needs to be explained through character dialogue; and one betrayal was also enough for me: the plot twists toward the

I just finished reading this book I'm simultaneously shocked at the cliffhanger and crying about how wonderful the book was 🙃😢

Cara and Caine must uncover dark secrets and betrayals, and fight a looming war, all the while struggling with growing feelings for each other - enemies to friends to lovers, I just 💛💛

Angst, friendship, love, betrayal.. and space+time-travel, this book had it all 🖖 the cliffhanger is still killing me, I am anticipating many daydreams ahead about the sequel and the fate of

“You changed me; you changed my life for the better. You have made me better in so many ways. You opened my heart back up; you are in my heart, and you always will be."

This book tells the life of a lot of people... Settling for a mediocre life for fear of being alone or failing at an endeavor.
Cara is in danger of this very thing. Stuck in a dead end job, with an excitement lacking relationship, she feels like there is no way out. that is, until destiny, or in this case, an EMP blast gone awry,

Three and a half stars for this promising debut novel.
The blurb of this romance-infused science fiction novel had my interest peaked immediately.
Following an accident, Cara, a modern day woman time-travels 900 years into the future, where she meets Star Fleet Commander, Nicholas Caine.
At first, Caine believes her to be part of the rebel tribe his troops are fighting, but by means of 'mindwalking' he determines that Cara came from the past.
The conundrum? He needs to get her back to the past witho

I really enjoyed this book, even though sci-fi romance is not usually my preferred genre.
Kasper's style is unique and she wrote the characters with depth and feeling, easily transporting you into their world.
There was a wide range of emotions that Cara went through during her journey, which Kasper brought to life through her words. I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Cara and Caine develop, even her frustration at Caine's stubborn closed off manner.
There was tension, humour, sadness and

Cut Her Out in Little Stars is a fun and relaxing read. The omniscient point-of-view style was difficult for me to sink into, but the story was straightforward and the world intriguing. I would have liked to see more depth to the characters and a faster pace, but that could just be me.

Be aware that Cut Her Out in Little Stars was categorized as a sci-fi romance, but it doesn’t have a Happily Ever After or a Happy For Now ending. It is certainly a romantic sci-fi, but the primary story focus on t

I make no secret that I love a good time travel story. I might even have an unhealthy obsession with the idea of traveling to the past; the good, the bad, the fantastic. Sometimes, I even overlook the idea of traveling into the future. It’s much more daunting of a perspective; so much of the unknown.
In this novel, Cut Her Out In Little Stars, the main character is unexpectedly and unknowingly transported into the future. One of the ideas from the story that I loved in the setting’s uncharted pl

I really liked this story but I can only give it 4 stars because it was confusing at times. It is about time travel in a way.

The main character is a young lady named Cara who lives in NYC. She works for a telemarketing firm and has a boyfriend. He wants to marry her but she won't move in with him because she is unsure how she really feels. In her mind, there must be more to life. She wants adventure and the feeling of "swept me off my feet" love. Well, maybe she will get that some

Rating: 4/5

What if you woke up and nothing was the same as you remembered it? Cara DeLeon is just that girl. From being a normal girl, taking on the city, Cara finds herself thrown through space and time as she is now in the future. Life will never be the same.

Cara DeLeon’s character is probably one of my favourites that I have read in a book recently. She’s not only genuine and real as her emotions are raw and flawed but she responds to the situation

I received a free ARC thanks to the publisher through Reedsy.

Cara is a spitfire from modern times that ends up, through a freak accident, 900 years in the future. Cool technology and space travel. What’s not to love? Probably the interplanetary war, lack of hot showers, and the infuriating Commander, Caine. On top of all that, no one is telling her anything but half-truths and lies.

Caine discovers Cara has mysteriously arrived on his ship in the middle of a, potentially catastrophic, battle. Ev

I was given an arc copy in exchange for my honest review.

What I loved:

Excellent world building
Well thought out and fleshed out characters.
Fun twists with Espers and mind walking.
A fresh and exciting story line with space and time travel and just enough romance.

What I struggled with:

Slow paced, took a while before it felt like things were happening.
Abrupt ending. I wanted a little more tied up before the sequel.

Would recommend to those who love sci-fi, adventure, and time travel. Look forward to

As a super busy hospital worker, mother, wife and horse owner i have little to no spare time. I started this book and carried it with me everywhere for a week! I read chapters where I could squeeze them in because I loved the characters and the story. I think about the book when I'm not reading it and that is how I rate the quality of a book!

This is the 1st book I've read written by Daniele Kasper; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

A wonderfully fun book. There is a lot of room for world building and character building in the future. I'm excited for the next book and look forward to the adventure. The author did a great job of helping you understand what the character feels and as crazy as the situation is, one can imagine being in the situation. It's a fun and fantastic love story. ...more

This book was an absolute whirlwind from start to finish and I loved every moment of it.

Where do I start?

Daniele’s writing is like a magnet, pulling you through the story with a kind of force you only ever feel when you’re stuck into a really epic book. I was finding myself clock watching at work so that I could start reading again as soon as I finished for the day.

Cara and Caine’s relationship throughout the book is like a carefully choreographed dance - as main characters, they are both so str

Where do I start?!
This book sets out like your standard chick lit novel. Two girls in New York, hitting the food trucks to save money on lunch, Cara wondering about the future of her relationship with BF David, best friend Olivia by her side.

Next thing you know, whoosh, some space-time glitch blams Cara into the Archon, a Confederate spaceship, a thousand years in the future. If you think that relationships on Earth in the twenty-first century are tough, t

Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy to review as part of a book tour. This in no way affects my review.

Cut Her Out in Little Stars has surprised me by how much I enjoyed it because I am usually a logic-based and technical science fiction reader. While this book has some science behind it, it is very much a science fiction romance, not something I have considered before, but I thoroughly enjoyed.

My favourite part of Cut Her Out in Little Stars has to be the characters.

Cut Her Out in Little Stars is a fun, absorbing story about a woman sucked through time and into space. There are twists and turns all the way through, and it was easy to sit back and enjoy the journey.
The story starts off with a well-written introduction to Cara and her life. There is a deep sense of restlessness in her, and by the time the incident occurs, I was hoping something would change for her. I guess reading the blurb beforehand helped me stay hooked and get excited about the impending

Daniele Kasper has an amazing writing style. Her writing made me engaged throughout the whole book. Leading to why I finished this book in one day.

Cara was an amazing main character and I could relate to her in multiple ways. Caine also was a great character. They both had their flaws but connected to each other in a different way that I had not seen done before. I really liked their development as individuals and a duo throughout the story. The relationship seemed natural and not too pushed.

IOk so this will be a short one because it was not my thing. If you follow me at all, you would know Im usually a reviewer of fantasy and scifi. When the author approached me and asked me to read this, I read the synopsis and thought 'sweet. Its a sci fi novel with some romance' ala last years Docile. Reader, it is not...

So the first 30% is all about the coming together and each MC starting to care about the other (pretty standard stuff). Its all awkward meetings and misunderstandings but it als

“Inky blackness was dotted with glimmering spots of light. The slender curve of a pastel blue planet, half-shaded in darkness, loomed in the distance. Space; she was in space.
Despite how illogical it sounded, she was on a spaceship.
Pressing a hand against the glass, she stared out into the unending expanse of space and found herself questioning not just reality but also her sanity. This couldn’t possibly be real. There had to be some sort of explanation.”
“Cara stared up at the stars, thinking about the three sisters who sacrificed themselves before they would betray each other. “They loved each other so much they died for each other.”
“Sometimes, when you love someone that much, dying is the least you would do to protect them.” His voice was hushed as he gazed skyward.”
