Author: BB Easton
Series: 44 Chapters
Release: April 12, 2018
Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her best-selling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy stand-alone. STAR is Hans’s book—a real-life rock star romance…with a twist.
In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was hers. She knew it the moment he flashed her that shy, dimpled smile.
And he knew it too.
Hansel “Hans” Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about BB on the other. Unlike the assholes of her past, he showered her with tenderness, took her places she’d never been before, and showed her the type of all-consuming love she’d thought only existed in fairy tales.
But, like any good fairy tale, BB’s road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when she least expected it…it forked.
In 1999, Brooke “BB” Bradley met her Prince Charming.
In 2000, she met her soul mate.
Red, Red, Red
When my eyes swept over the crowd and up to the stage, there was a brief moment where the rest of the world fell away. Hans was all I could see. It wasn’t that he commanded attention. He wasn’t wearing a fishnet shirt or vinyl pants or leather-studded gloves or any of the other dramatic bullshit his bandmates had on. He wasn’t even looking at the crowd. But there was something about him that shone.
Maybe it was all the contrast. Hans’s features were dark and hard, but his spirit was soft and light. One arm was completely tattooed in blacks and grays; the other was a blank canvas. His low-slung, baggy slacks were black, but the tight wifebeater clinging to his hard chest was white. Hell, even his Adidas were black and white.
But his bass? His bass was red, red, red.
And We Have Another Winner !!!
Star by the incredibly talented and outstanding author B.B. Easton put me in a roller coaster. The story sucked me in, whirled me around, gutted me and then spat me out. I read the previous books and couldn’t wait to get my hands on Star. And it was so worth the wait.
I literally just finished the book and now I’m trying to find words to write a adequate review.
Star is book three in the 44 Chapters Series, a Spin-off to 44 Chapters about 4 Men. The previous books are Skin – Knight’s story; Speed – Harley’s story and now Star – Hans’ story.
B.B. – Brooke Bradley is a young girl with a colorful past. She’s a blip of a girl but much stronger than she seems. She already survived abusive relationships and came out of them stronger.
And then she meets Hansel – Hans – Oppenheimer. It takes one touch and sparks fly. They have a deep, a very deep, bone deep connection.
Hans is the bass player in a up and coming rockband. He’s a good guy, a pleaser and he loves her with his whole heart.
Only Brooke is so young, and about to start college. Yes she loves him too and I strongly rooted for the couple. But life / fate start to throw wrenches their way. He’s on tour- without BB and she makes new friends without Hans.
In Star isn’t a villain you can point your finger at and say: It’s your fault. Both make mistakes and have to bear the consquences. And then a ghost from her past shows up and I was like WHAT??? No, don’t go back to HIM!!!! Sorry folks, no spoiler here. Only so much, Star is a heartwrenching story, a emotional read and my absolute favorite read in this series.
The writing is excellent, the story is uniqe and I can’t say how much I love the characters and the words. I connected with the characters on a deep level. I could feel their emotions in the words.
I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Suit – coming fall.
I highly recommend the book and the series and wish I could give more than 5 stars.
