As I promised on the post where I presented the PageHabit January box, here’s the review for the book that came with it: Starlight Nights by Stacey Kade.
From the moment I’ve seen the cover of this book I was pretty sure I’m gonna enjoy it.
I loved how well Stacey Kate built the characters. You can see how both Calista and Eric begin as being weak persons but throughout the story it gets obvious how much they change, how strong they become and how mature they end up to be. They both know they’re flawed and they both accept each other the way they are instead of trying to change one another based on “how it should be”.
Their parents are horrible persons from the beginning to end and I believe that’s the antithesis this book needed: Eric and Calista vs Rowley and Lori.
I loved how well Stacey depicted the Hollywood ideas through Calista’s mother. It was shocking to think that the fictive life of Calista actually takes place in reality, behind the scenes of some of the celebrities we admire.
Back to our intriguing love story, Calista and Eric are those type of people that are beautiful together even if they are not a couple, if that makes any sense. There could be a crowd of people and I would still ship them. It was obvious they’re ending up together but hey, you never know how surprising an author can be (thank you, Stacey, for not ruining this for us). It was awesome the way their love story developed from beginning to end with an obvious chemistry at a perfect pace.
Starlight Nights contains everything you might expect: addiction, cliches, bad choices, character development, hollywood life and a messy but beautiful and unique love story.
