Months after getting kicked out of college my senior year, I made a split decision and moved in with my best friend and his roommate, Nix.
I never thought I’d try the whole ‘friends with benefits’ thing with Phoenix, but he didn’t seem to mind when I offered up the idea.
We promised no feelings would get involved.
We lied to each other, to ourselves.
In his eyes, I wasn’t just the deaf girl or the family burden. I was beautiful and smart and a bit crazy with some anger issues which he overlooked because to him, I was normal.
We were never supposed to be more, but you can’t fight that pull when the stars align.
We are fire and water.
Stars and the moon.
Phoenix and Luna.
This is the story of how a man who loves everything showed a girl how to love herself.
Once upon a brutally boring night on Facebook I spotted something that stopped me dead in my tracks. The cover for Briana Pacheco´s `A Sky Full Of Secrets`( Cosmic Love #1). After reading the description I acted quickly and ordered myself the paperback… because there was no way I was going to settle for the e-book version ( pretty books need to be on an actual bookshelf!).
The book arrived. I started reading. I finished. I liked it alot.
Make room for Briana Pacheco! She´s going to conquer the book world!
`A Sky Full Of Secrets` is not one of those over dramatic romances with over-the-top first world problems. It´s a story about love, acceptance and dreams. It´s about conquering your fears, dealing with what life throws at you and finding happiness when you´re not sure you´re ready for it.
Luna´s life became difficult when she became deaf. From then on everything slightly went down hill, until…… Phoenix happened.
But Phoenix ( Nix ) wasn´t supposed to happen. Luna didn´t want anything to happen. All she asked for was a normal life and little did she know Nix was exactly the person who could give her that.
But was Luna ready to break down the walls she so carefully built around her heart?
You´ll have to find that one out for yourself by reading the story.
I liked that there wasn´t a super villain. The biggest issue was Luna herself ( including her family) and the way she made her life unnecessarily difficult due to her insecurities and her past. How does one fit in when they don´t feel like they will ever fit in? Luna´s thoughts and feelings were well displayed and I enjoyed reading about her struggle ( that sounds odd. * g * ) She was just a normal girl with a disability that kept her from loving herself and enjoying life as she should have.
A great modern romance with all the feels.
The Cover – 5 stars ( seriously, It´s beautiful. Period.)
The Characters – 4 stars ( Phoenix was the best. His character was interesting and had so much to offer * insert hearts*. Luna was great as well. Mac…..dear Lord. Create a real Mac for me.)
The Story – 4 stars (What I liked most was the aura the story had. Although this is a well written contemporary romance it had a magical touch to it. )
My emotional state after finishing this read- Down right happy and satisfied.
I´m giving `A Sky Full Of Secrets` ( Cosmic Love #1 ), by Briana Pacheco, 4 out of 5 stars.
