Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant

Ebook Romance Novel
Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant is the first novel I've read by Vanessa Grant. 

I read the ebook edition of Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant on my Kindle. The ebook edition of this romance novel is approximately 256 pages in length. I was able to download Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant for FREE from Amazon. 

Below is my unbiased review of Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant.

For the most part, I enjoyed reading Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant. I liked the story, the characters and the plot itself. 

What I didn't enjoy was the poor editing job in this novel like the misspelling of words and discrepancies on the ages of the two main characters (one moment Claire is 32 another time she's 31 and Blake's age is mentioned as 34 and 35). An author should keep all the facts surrounding characters and plot straight and consistent throughout the novel. 

I also didn't like how the author refers to the sex scenes as 'loving' instead of 'sex'... If a couple is having sex, then call it what it is. No euphemisms please. The main characters, Claire and Blake, also have an almost week long fling and have unprotected sex... There are other things to worry about other just pregnancy from unprotected sex -- like STIs/STDs, which weren't even vaguely discussed even in passing. Whether that's really relevant in this case I am not sure, but if one of the main characters (Claire) happens to mention Blake's bad boy past, then yes, STIs/STDs would be a topic to mention, even if it isn't in any great detail.

The following is a plot summary for Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant from Amazon:
Arizona astronomer Claire Welland is anything but starry-eyed when it comes to romance. She knows her home on an isolated mountaintop observatory makes marriage to most men impossible, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have a little romantic fun. The last thing she expects when she comes home to Port Townsend, Washington, for her high school reunion is to be swept off her feet by Blake McKenzie.

Once the town bad boy, Blake is now a prominent shipbuilder dedicated to helping local teens. When he asks Claire to talk to one of his boys about astronomy, he’s only thinking she might give direction to a troubled kid. He certainly never dreamed she’d inspire him - to fall in love. Now Blake is determined to show Claire that their future together is in the stars…if she’ll only open her eyes.
I am giving Seeing Stars by Vanessa Grant a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!
