Summary –

A fresh start…

Determined to have a life of her own, Victoria Weiss flees the safe haven of New Berlin on the planet Mars by accepting an internship on the most remote space station in the solar system. Being the daughter of the Great German ambassador isn’t all glitter and glamour, and Tori needs a fresh start away from her overbearing parents. But running away from your past isn’t easy when you’ve hidden away the darkest parts. Tori hasn’t trusted men ever since a sexual encounter that left her soul scarred, and when the station’s Chief of Security shows an interest in her, she feels torn between running away from him and allowing herself to open up to new possibilities.

A troubled past…

The last thing Alen Novak expects is to lose his head over an Elite girl. But when Tori Weiss walks into his life, he can’t help but feel she’s different from the Great German leaders who effectively destroyed his Croatian homeland during the Great Wars in Europe. Even though he is the station’s Security Chief, Alen doesn’t command the respect of all his colleagues because of his prison past – and he’s afraid Tori will dismiss him for it right out of the gate. After all, he’s been hurt by a woman he loved before.

Fanning the flames of passion…

There’s no way to avoid working together, though, and the two are irresistibly drawn to each other. Will Tori and Alen learn how to face their darkest fears, or will the past nip their passionate love in the bud?

A sweet, erotic romance for lovers of New Adult with a hint of Futuristic.

My Thoughts –

Make You See Stars is fantastic story about starting over, getting over stereotypes and finding love when you least expect it. 

I truly enjoyed reading about Tori and Alen.  They both grew and found love together.  I liked Tori’s character and personality.  She was into classic rock, loved books and was wicked smart.  Novak has pre-misconceptions when it comes to Tori.  He soon learns about the real her and falls in love while doing so.  Their chemistry and smexy scenes are off the charts and fan worthy. 

I think life on the space station was interesting, the missions and the world created is pretty cool.  The supporting characters were great and made the story overall awesome. 

I wish the book was longer. It is a quick, well-written, easy to read story.  Great job – I look forward to reading more from this author!!
