A Stella Review :Fusion (North Star #2) by Posy Roberts

RATING 5 out of 5 stars

A love story comes out of the shadows.

Everyone in Kevin’s life knows him as straight rather than bisexual. There was no need to come out until now, but loving Hugo is worth any prejudice he’ll encounter. Hugo does his best to be patient while Kevin navigates his way toward openness, but he refuses to be put back in a closet for long.

Kevin wants to tell his kids without screwing up their newfound stability, and he worries about telling his ex because Erin might use the truth against him to renegotiate custody. Kevin wants it all finalized, but time isn’t on his side.

When Erin gets grim news, it shakes everyone to the core and rips Kevin away from the life he planned with Hugo. The news brings Hugo’s past hurts bubbling to the surface. Yet when Erin turns to Hugo for support, their new connection shows him how essential he is to Kevin and his kids.

Despite the chaos, it’s clear Hugo is very much a part of this unconventional family.

I could be biased brcause I’m a huge fan of Posy Roberts, she is one of my favorite authors, but this second installment in the North Star series was simply amazing. I already met these characters in Spark but here in Fusion, things are on another level. The emotions were so deep I admit I had to stop for a few minutes sometimes, yes I shed tears more than a couple of times but it was inevitable to me. This novel hurt me, the themes the author used hit my memories very hard. I struggled with the reading but all the pain was rewarded with a beautiful and powerful story.

Kevin and Hugo were just starting their relationship when a life changing news was delivered to them from one of the most important persons in Kevin’s family. From that moment everything changed and Hugo had to build new strong bonds. The old and new relationships he strengthened and created were just the confirmation of how a positive and selfless person he is, someone every one of us should have beside them.

Of course to me Fusion was so much better than Spark, it’s so full of feelings in every aspect of the life, love, friendship and more, when I finished the novel, I was a little overwhelmed, definitely in a good way. I can’t wait to discover where the third and last book in this trilogy will lead me. I’m so ready to see these characters grow into their so new lives. Each one of them.

Highly recommend it.

The cover art by Olive Us Designs is well done, it follows the style of the series and I like its darkness.

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
