STARS by Malorie Verdant ~ RELEASE BLITZ and REVIEWS

by Malorie Verdant
 APRIL 30th!

He changed my life.
With a smile, a flick of his wrist and a death-defying stunt.
He was six and I was five.
And now, thirteen years later, I am hopelessly in love.
There is only a slight problem.
He doesn’t know I exist.
He’s the star quarterback.
I’m a science nerd who hides in the shadows.
I don’t need anyone to tell me that college won't change anything.
I know he’s the star of this story.
And I belong in the audience.

Parker Elliot is going to Penmore State University miles away from home. She's leaving her small town because Penmore has a fantastic science department, because she needs to begin exploring the life she wants to lead and because Grayson Waters is the starting quarterback for the Penmore Herons.

Grayson Waters at first glance lives life to the fullest, but he is dealing with more than meets the eye. A con artist father in trouble with local mobsters, an illegitimate brother living close by, the pressure of leading his team to the championship game and a desire to pursue a career outside the football field. Decisions need to be made. For Gray, slipping into the shadows with a pretty and observant brunette might be just what he needs to finally make the right ones.

Stars By Malorie Verdant get 5 stars!!!!! I always love a good read with a hot athlete but Grayson Waters  was so much more than that! Once he meets Parker Elliot (someone he has been closer too almost all his life but never noticed) he learns and finds what he never knew was right next door.  

I found this to be a complete page turner and I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next in this story.  I loved that it wasn't predictable and kept me intrigued. I fell in love with Grayson and Parker & I know you will to. Grab this and start it and fall in love with your not your typical star quarterback & a shy, sexy & innocent soul.

Review by: TATIA 

Stars turned out to be more than I expected. I thought this was going to be my next easy read, a sweet story that I knew I'd love. It turned out to be all of those things and more.
When you first start to read, it may seem like your typical girl next door falls for the high school quarterback, but don't be fooled. Parker fell in love with Grayson when they were just kids. When the one chance she has to introduce herself goes horribly wrong, she settles with just observing from afar. She even ends up at the same college as him still lurking in the shadows, too shy to come out of hiding. Until one day when he notices her. It's definitely a memorable "first" meeting.
I couldn't have enjoyed this more. Well, there was one part that I didn't like only because of what happened to one of my favorite characters. You'll know it when you read it. For my first read by Malorie Verdant, I was impressed. I can't wait for more. I look forward to everything she releases next.

Review by: Amy E 

I loved the originality of this storyline.  While I've read similar stories I haven't read anything quite like this one.  It was sweet, full of twists and turns, and kept me eager for more.

Parker was the kind of heroine you love.  Gorgeous but unassuming, smart, and fierce when she needed to be. Watching her character grow throughout the book was beautiful.

Grayson had the perfect life, or so it seemed.  He was a mash up of football hero, momma's boy, and secret romantic.  He kept Parker on her toes but also learned a lot from her.

This book was exceptionally written and I have now found another one click author. Can't wait to see what she gives us next!!

I first started reading romance when I was twelve. 

My mother handed me her copy of Nora Robert’s Midnight Bayou and with resignation said, “Here you’ll love it, just skip the sex scenes or at least tell me you did.”

She knew I was young and she hoped I didn’t understand the diverse innuendos, but she also saw early on that I was a hopeless romantic and had a joy and thirst for romance novels that not even she and her protective motherly instincts could stop.
