Title: We Are the Stars
Author: Teagan Hunter
Genre: NA Contemporary 16+
The first time I saw Carsen Wheatley, I flipped him off.
The second time, I kneed him in the balls.
The third? I kissed him.
Why? Because Carsen needed it.
Angry and full of hate, Carsen is a lost soul, searching. Since the death of his mother, he’s cold and isolated, needing someone to fill the gap she left wide open, someone to kiss the anger from his soul.
That’s where I come in.
I’m restless, on the search for a new adventure, something to make me feel…well, anything. I’m certain I’ll find a permanent fix soon, but in the meantime, I have this summer job and Carsen to keep me going.
But the summer is only temporary, and so is the fix.
We are imperfect.
We are mismatched.
We are the stars.
Review by Gia:
I went into reading this one with not really knowing much about it. I didn't read the blurb or anything. I saw the author's name and was like that sounds like a cool name and that's how I decided to pick up the book to read it. I really liked this one. I would say this one is more of YA read.
Elliot is spending the summer at home and working at a bowling alley. Even though she lives in a small town, her family isn't in to the town gossip. Elliot is twenty sometimes I thought she acted a younger then that and I had to keep reminding myself that she was a college age and not a high school age. She is a straighter shooter and she just says what she's thinking.
While at home for the summer she meets Carsen. Carsen has a past that is not very good. The town rumor mill is in full force with his past. Some people give him a chance. Carsen at first is a cold grumpy guy. Life has dealt him a hard hand and it takes him a long time to warm up to Elliot. He also has temper. I like how Elliot slowly peals the layers of Carsen away and we get to glimpse of the real Carsen. Both Carsen and Elliot are still young and looking for direction in life. They have their ups and downs. I was really glad for the epilogue. The epilogue gave me a little bit but I still want to know more. I really liked these characters and would definitely read more about them.

I’m a romance cover artist by day and a writer by…well, every free moment I get. I currently live in North Carolina with my US Marine husband where I spend my days bugging him about getting a cat so our puppy won’t be alone (he keeps saying no). I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural. I like cold weather, I buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never match my socks—unless they’re fuzzy.
I’m weird. It’s kind of my “thing.”
