Brilliant astrophysicist Dr. Owen Shaughnessy feels more connected to the cosmos than to people. He’s great with calculations, but when he leads a team of scientists to study a famous meteor shower, he doesn’t factor in his free-spirited artist assistant Brooke Matthews.
Polar opposites in personality, the friction between Owen and Brooke threatens to derail the project. But the beauty and mystery of the night sky draw them together—and she’s going to surprise him in ways the stars never could.
I have a small confession to make. I am addicted to this branch of the Shaughnessy family tree. Aidan and Zoe hooked me in but I read the books all out of order because after Quinn and Anna I couldn’t wait to read Owen’s story. I love a love story featuring a fellow nerd and getting to know Owen through the other stories I knew I’d love him.
Owen is…well calling him shy would be a massive understatement because he had a hard time opening up to the women his brothers fell in love with. For awhile, anyway. But in A Sky Full Of Stars we really get to know him and find that he’s not really all that shy. He’s reserved and wicked smart which makes communicating with normal people, kind of boring.
Then he spots Brooke in one of his lectures and he’s hooked. She’s beautiful with a long flowing dress, an armful of bracelets, looking every bit the bohemian artist she is. Their first meeting is great and such the perfect illustration of their relationship moving forward. She’s always pushing forward, trying new things to maximize life’s enjoyment but he’s more cautious and pretty damn insecure. It’s a problem for Brooke, and for me but I had hopes for this Shaughnessy brother.
There are twists and turns but my favorite part of A Sky Full Of Stars was watching Owen do all these things he normally wouldn’t do, and not feeling all that bad about it. He and Brook were completely perfect for one another despite how different they were. I found myself smiling all the way through this story, and though there wasn’t some huge drama or a returning ex-lover to make things sticky, I loved the hell out of this story.
The steamy scenes were HOT and the story as a whole was just…fun.
Samantha Chase really sucked me in to this family and I can’t get enough. I just finished Hugh’s story and now I have Riley and Darcy left!
