I was happily married until the doctor gave me terrible news. My husband must have never really loved me because he left me shortly afterward. It's been six months and I'm in a better place...but do you ever truly get over something like that?
Then I meet Neil Crimson.
The guy isn't just handsome, smart, and charming. There's something special about him.
He's an astronaut.
He just returned from a three-month voyage at the moon and now he's working at the NASA Space Center in Houston. He's my best friend's brother-in-law so I see him all the time. Every time we bump into each other, I like him a little more.
After my divorce, I'm looking for something easy, something fun.
Neil Crimson seems easy and fun.
I'm about to have a fling with an astronaut. How many people can say that?

3.5 Stars Charlotte is just six months out of a marriage that left her with a bad taste in her mouth. Because of a medical problem, he left her, and found himself another woman. Charlotte has decided that love is too much of a gamble, but a one night stand every once in a while won't hurt. Her best friend's husband's brother is Neil Crimson .... a bonafide astronaut. Handsome, smart, charming, and dedicated to his job. No commitments for him .. his first and only love is when he's in space. There is an attraction between them, but they each know the score. They enjoy each other's company ... in and out of bed. He's leaving for outer space again .... so what will happen then? Be prepared ... there is a major cliff-hanger. The love scenes are many, graphic, and they sizzle. This is basically a love story about two people who don't believe in love ... but they're finding something. Will be fun to see where they go from here. Many thanks to the author / Hartwick Publishing for the digital copy of this contemporary romance. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
Stars On Fire has a couple things that make this book stand out for me. First the hero is an astronaut. That's a first for me and I like the extra it brings to the story. It'll be interesting to see how these two handle the relationship when he isn't even on earth. I say that because it hasn't happened yet. This is a series and their story isn't done. The second thing that makes this book stand out is the heroine. I always want to find a heroine who plays it cool with the hero. I like this trait because it pushes the hero to be the one to chase. Charlotte is such a cool character. She is still grieving over her marriage and what her ex-husband did to her, so she recognizes she isn't ready for more than just companionship. Since Charlotte isn't wanting anything serious, this allows her to get close to Neil. I wouldn't say Neil is a commitment phobe, he is just realistic with how his job has to come first and he doesn't think it would be fair to a relationship. Because of this he keeps things casual but he also hasn't met anyone to make him want to try. Looks like that will be changing with Charlotte. I think the next book will really step things up between Neil and Charlotte, and I'm looking forward to it.
