I wanted a quick/short read and that is what I got. It was ok but then I am not a great fan of little Novella's, but to be honest if this had been a longer/full size book then I would have abandoned it after a couple of chapters because it is something I wouldn't normally read (Time travel/Historical)and that is why I gave it a low rating.

I’m a huge time travel fan, so I was a pleasantly surprised when I started reading this short story and found time traveling is the main star. Among the shooting starts needed to help our heroines out anyway. I’m glad Bella Andre decided to breathe new life into her older books. I’ve had fun with the two I’ve read so far.

Now, you have to keep in mind Shooting Stars is a short story. It suffers the same fate as pretty much every other short story out there - not enough time for the characters to

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

I really wanted to like this story. In fact, I really enjoyed the beginning. The story just started off with a bang. I just have a problem with the second half, that is where the story became everything I dislike about short stories. I just don't understand how four different people all seem to fall in love within moments of meeting one another. It just wasn't believable. Maybe if this story was longer and we were given a chance to see the ch

it was ok a lil too short for me and for a so called erotic romance it wasnt really anything there sex wise apart from a suggestion of slight bdsm (tying up) from one of the swapped couples (there was no detail though)

and the guys seemed to of accepted the strange situation too easily .... and fell in love too fast for a 50 page book lol

but was a light fun read and if ya like ya romance / sexy parts mild and not too in detail then ya will like this book ......

but me i like my books longer and

This was pretty short but a lot of fun. I'm a sucker for funny time travels, and this had a cute tone to it. It also has a very, ahem, eye opening beginning. Lol. There's a sweetness to Bella Andre's books that I find easy to enjoy.
Very short read, but good. It was so cute. I think this could have made a good FULL book. If you're looking for something cute and short, this is your story.

I wasn't impressed by the lack of story compared to her other books that I've read. The 2 sex scenes were great but I wanted to read more!

Even if it's a quick read, I expected a little more from this.
Time traveling and lovers... I needed more than just looking at a star and bing time swapped.

Time travel erotic tales. It read like a mini homage to Outlander minus any endearing characters. Still it was fun to read.

Through synopsis I thought I would love. But I found very weak, poorly developed. I love the stories of Bella Andre, but this disappointed me.

This book was OK for a free read. I'm not into romance time travel books, it all felt a bit confusing, hence the three stars.

Nice premise, but it was too short to satisfy me, and I had a difficult time believing that the acceptance both sets of hero & heroines showed happened so quickly.
