When Stars Burn Out by Carrie Aarons • RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW

Title: When Stars Burn Out
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Adult
Release Date: April 22, 2018


Stars die in one of two ways.

So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.

Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.

But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.

And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.

She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

Review by: Flavia

So when I started this book, I really couldn't stand Paxton, but I suppose everyone deserves a second chance.

Demi is a sweet, strong student who one night went out with her friends after much nagging from them. At this party she met Paxton Shaw. And immediately she was attracted to him. After that she became Paxton's on again off again girl. But mostly he's hookup when he wanted one. He never committed to her, but each time he texted/called she went. And then he just left, and she never heart from him again. Until eight years later when she needs a football player to help a dying boy's wish come true.


Paxton Shaw is just another college jock playing football and loving his life. He has everything a guy could want. He is popular, he is a winner and he can have any girl he wants. And he does. Demi Rosen was his 'hookup' girl. He knew that whenever he wanted her all he had to do was pick up the phone and she was there. And then he left never even saying goodbye. Now eight years later his life is different, he is different. And he finally realized that Demi Rosen was the one that got away. So is this his time, his time to prove to her that she is his priority that she is the one he wants, will he be able to prove to her that he deserves a second chance???


Like i said when i started i didn't know if i liked Paxton, but as the story went on he won me over. He really did change. But it took Demi some time to admit that even after eight years he was still the one she loved. Definitely a story about second chances and how some people do change. 

4.5 Stars
