Book Review : Girl made of stars Ashley Herring Blake
Girl Made of Stars - Ashley Herring Blake

December 9-12
TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE AND MOLESTING 

Mara and Owen are as close as twins can get, so when Mara’s friend Hannah accuses Owen of rape, Mara doesn't know what to think. Can her brother really be guilty of such a violent act? Torn between her family and her sense of right and wrong, Mara feels lost, and it doesn’t help that things are strained with her ex-girlfriend, Charlie. As Mara, Hannah, and Charlie come together in the aftermath of this terrible crime, Mara must face a trauma from her own past and decide where Charlie fits into her future. With sensitivity and openness, this timely novel confronts the difficult questions surrounding consent, victim blaming, and sexual assault.


Review : This book was hard to read it deals with a hard topic . Mara and her twin Owen go to this party and Owen goes off with his girlfriend but Mara wants to leave she sees her ex girlfriend and she came with owen and his best friend Alex so they leave and then things start getting bad when Hannah says Owen raped her cause that's Mara's friend but owen is her twin there family says they have to stick together but Mara can't deny her gut feeling that Owen is lying but he won't admit it . Charlie and Mara start talking again they go visit Hannah she tells Hannah that she believes her . This is hard for Mara to Mara was molested when she was in middle school from her teacher which is so fucked up I was angry reading this book mostly but I really loved it . They ended up dropping the rape cause cause there wasn't enough evidence . Alex and Mara ended up hanging out a lot in this book they were using each other cause they were both lonely they almost had sex but Mara couldn't do it . she told Hannah and Charlie about being molested and she told owen in the story way using the stars . Charlie and Mara get back together this book was really good .

Quote :

“Even girls made of stars are captives, bound at the wrists and traded like property. Even girls made of stars aren't asked, aren't believed, aren't considered worth the effort unless they can offer something in return.
Even girls made of stars buy into those lies sometimes.


This. This is why I never said anything. Because no one ever believes the girl.


Thank you for coming to save me.” She laughs, but it’s soft. “I didn’t save you. I can’t save anyone.” “You can. You did.” “I just hate that we hurt like this, you know?” “What do you mean?” She grabs my hand and squeezes. “I think about the things we’ve talked about in Empower. Articles we’ve read about all the girls who were thrown away by boys like they meant nothing. All the times a girl’s voice seemed to mean less than a boy’s. All the times the courts sent out a shit ruling on a rape case. It never really hit me, you know? I mean, it did, but not like this. I never thought it’d be my story. Or yours. I never wanted to let this be our story

Chance
Join the Club (Four Kings Security #3) - Charlie Cochet

This is book #3 in the Four Kings Security series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this sexy series in order.

 

Eduardo AKA “Lucky” has been hot for Mason for a long time.  When he finally gets the chance to test the attraction out, he is shocked to find the man he wants so badly has similar fears in the commitment area.  Will there pasts doom hem from the start?

 

Mason has run into a problem at work.  He will have some time to consider his future.  While he is waiting, spending some time with a man he finds so potent could either be a good, or bad idea.

 

This series is on fire!  I love each character.  Cool how they are all in these stories like we are watching a TV show.  This story is full of heat, heart, and humor.  Typical of such a great author, it moves along well and keeps you wanting more.  The sexy times are seriously sexy with sparks all over!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Maturity
Rend - Roan Parrish

This is book #2 in Riven series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading series in order.

 

Matt meets Rhys thinking he would be an amazing one night stand.  To his surprise, there is something more there.  Now he must learn to fight for what he has.

 

Rhys knows saying the wrong thing will scare Matt away.  He cannot help how he feels.  So he keeps Matt any way he can.

 

This story caught me by surprise.  As a breath of fresh air.  The men must learn to put each other above the rest, even with odds against them.  I loved the sincere feelings that came across.  The real search for the one who can love you most.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
