RATING 3,5 out of 5 stars
A therapist once told Martin Stevens that being gay was the only thing that saved him from being the most boring man alive. He spends his daytime working a dead-end job and his nights still pining after the ex-fiance who left him five years ago. When his older brother, Daniel, takes him to see a touring musical, a mishap sends superstar performer Alec Jameson flying off the stage right into Martin’s lap. It’s love at first sight. But can that love withstand the scrutiny of the press, a shock-jock radio personality bent on causing trouble, and the return of Martin’s overbearing ex-fiance?
I was very enthusiastic to read this new release by Matt Burlingame, the author conquered me with his holiday short called The Fortune Cookie and Catch a Falling Star was no exception.
This novella was exactly what I needed, it was sweet and fast paced and with loveable characters. Martin and Alec couldn’t be more different and that was exactly why they worked so well together, the first is considered from everyone a boring person, the second is a well known actor that everyone love. From the moment Alec literally fell on Martin, the attraction between them couldn’t be ignored.
I loved the main characters, I found both of them to be quite well done and cute, and the secondary ones, like Martin’s brother, were a huge bonus. He was supportive and stubborn to help his little brother in this new relationship. Yes, maybe the love is quick and instantaneous, but I’m a fan of those kind of stories so it didn’t bother me at all. It was sweet and romantic and simple with no drama, just how I wanted it to be.
I enjoyed Catch a Falling Star a lot, it put me in a good mood and I can’t wait for more by this author.
The cover art by Can Stock Phot/ocusfocus is cute and well done. I like it.
