Evangeline Thorne is privileged. 
Beautiful and popular, if not a little jaded. 
A chance encounter with a green-eyed stuntman sets off a chain of events that turns her perfect, little world upside down.
Short on options and desperate for adventure, she joins the traveling carnival for the summer.
Thrust into a world full of drama, deception, and secrecy, Evangeline tries to find herself and protect her heart in the process. 
Sebastian McAllister is cursed.
He knows better than to think otherwise. 
He’s content to live out the rest of his life traveling the country as one of the four Sons of Eastlake, seeking thrills the only way he knows how. 
The one thing he doesn’t see coming is the spoiled blond with stars in her eyes. 
The only problem is, the more time he spends with her, the more hope starts to stir in his dormant heart. 
Too bad hope is a dangerous thing when you’re a McAllister.

Rewrite the Stars by Charleigh Rose is just the second book I've read by this author, but I can already tell she's going to be one of my favorites! I love angsty NA romance, and she did a stellar fucking job keeping me captivated by this one. There was never a moment where I wasn't either intrigued, entertained, or fanning myself. Her writing style is addictive, and I know I'll be going back for more! 

One fate filled night, an emotional Evan stumbles upon a carnival feauturing 4 bike riding bad boys, The Sons of Eastlake. Over the course of the night, a series of events take place that lead up to her first kiss and first arrest. This chance meeting, that kiss, and the events that follow wind up changing the course of her life forever.

From the leather jacket on his back to the bike he rides, Sebastian McAllister is the quintessential bad boy with an attitude to match. He lives his life like it could end tomorrow, because he doesn't believe he has a future. A heavy cloud of doom has been hanging over his head since the day he was born, and he knows more than most that tomorrow is never guaranteed. 

Evangeline Thorn was born with a silver spoon in her mouth to a loving family in a beautiful home. She has a life most people would be envious of. Beautiful, smart, sheltered, and headed toward college at an Ivy League, she lives every day like there's big things in store for her future.

One night is all it takes to shatter Evan's dreams and rip away everything she's ever known to be true.

One kiss is all it takes to make Sebastian wish he had a life to look forward to.

One summer is all it takes to seal both of their fates.

Rewrite the Stars is a unique coming of age romance with a splash of mystery and a sprinkle of suspense! The story is well paced, entertaining, and original, and the secondary characters are endearing and interesting enough for me to cross my fingers that they get their own books. There is too much potential here to be ignored, so I'm holding out hope that I get my wish. 🤞🏻

Full of angst, passion, amazing banter, and a connection that pours off the pages, the romance is everything I hoped it would be! Sebastian and Evan's chemistry is off the charts, and the sexual tension between them will have you squirming in your seat. The sex scenes damn near set my kindle on fire! 
I will never look at carnival rides the same way again. 

My favorite part of it all though has to be the setting! It's magical, vibrant, and mesmerizing! I could feel the excitement in the air, hear the music from the carousel, smell the funnel cake and cotton candy, and see the burlesque dancers performing on stage. The author did a phenomenal job of making me taste, see, smell, and experience everything right along with the characters. The story will live on inside my head a lot longer than most, because of how immersed I was in every aspect of it.

Overall, I loved everything about this novel. From start to finish, I was nothing but impressed! This book helped pull me out of an enormous reading slump, so it gets bonus points for that alone! 5 stars all the way!

If you're a fan of Charleigh Rose, picking this one up is a no brainer. You already know how awesome she is, so what are you waiting for?!  
If you've been meaning to try some of her work but haven't yet, there's no time like the present! One-click this one now, and let me know how much you loved it later!

I recommend Rewrite the Stars to anyone that enjoys NA romance, bad boys, strong heroines, hot sex, and spectacular settings!
