Where do you turn when all the bridges you have built in life have gone up in flames?
When the ones you love don’t protect you from the monsters lurking in the dark?
I never thought at twenty-eight-years-old I would have nothing to show for my life.
A child given away for strangers to raise.
A childhood ruined.
A life full of dead ends, drug abuse, and one night stands.
I’m at a crossroads, and I have a choice to make. I choose salvation.
I choose life. I choose myself, for the first time ever.
I will find her. I will find the life I was forced to give up.
I just pray that he stays out of my way.
I am Starburst Bloom and this is my story.
So i will start off by saying that Star wasnt my favorite person in HERS, i didnt like her at all, but i have totally changed my mind about her after reading Finding Willow.
Star came across as self absorbed and very selfish in HERS, i felt she used Seven and gave nothing back in there friendship. But after reading this story i feel like Star just didnt know how to give love to others, she never really had a loving relationship in her life be it from her parents or family or in any relationships. I think if Star had been able to keep Willow she would have had a better understanding of what love really is.
I liked how this story was kind of set in the same time line with Hers it fit in really well.
The more you read about Star and the way she grew up, the life she lead you understand her so much more, the emotions pour off the page and by the time the story is through you just want to give Star a bloody big hug.
Chrome is a perfect match for Star hes hard tough exterior appeals to Star, he looks like the typical bad boy, but he has a soft center, hes protective and has a good side that Star really needs. Star really need Chrome and his family, she has never known what it is like to belong and have friends other than Seven. I fell for Chrome right from the very start, and he has a sexy piercing for god sake!
I even liked him when he was being a bit of a dick with the girl in the ally!
The whole Finding Willow part of this book blew me away, let me just say Star’s family just Fu&kin suck ass, they are down right nasty, i dont like to give too much away in spoilers so just take my word for it, read the book and it will all become clear.
I practically jumped for joy with the Blue and Star scenario in front of her new house, i was like go Star, he’s a douche and got what he deserved. This man made my skin crawl.
This whole book is so very fantastic and is a wonderful read, how Star finds her place in the world as well as her daughter is just beautiful.
Let me tell you what else is beautiful in this book, the sex on a motorbike, Jesus that was a hot read loved it!
I learned to love Star but Seven is still one of my favorite book characters in a long time one of the best lines in the book belongs to her,
“I never thought I would see the day where this porn star bitch could put together a fucking Martha Stewart holiday. I think hell just froze over”
I cannot wait to read Kink the halls now to see how Christmas goes for this wonderfully dysfunctional extended family.
