Not every love story begins with a fiery explosion of lust.
Some are tiny embers of hope that smoulder slowly until the stars align…
I'd been living in a bubble.
It was meant to protect me from the things in life that hurt.
I could live, I could laugh, but at least I didn't have to love.
Loving was dangerous and I would never do it again.
It was working just fine, until the bubble burst.
It let in danger.
It let in light.
It let in…him.
Unknowingly I'd been living in the dark, feeling my way.
He filled my world with starlight.
He showed me how to move on to the next level.
He made me feel again.
I thought the wounds from the past would never fully heal,
But perhaps they only heal when the time is right.
Sometimes you just have to thank your lucky scars.
You would be so lucky to see the stars in their scars
I am flayed open emotionally right now. This was not what I was imagining going in, but I should have known better having read other books from Kerry.
Bea has been living with the guilt of a lifetime and shut herself off from any possibility of any type of personal life due to that tragedy. Then comes the faithful meeting of Jonathan and his flat whites and then the spilling of said flat white onto Ziggy.
Jonathan and I had a love-hate relationship throughout his role in this story. I wanted to smack him and high-five him at times for helping push Bea into the rest of her life.
Ziggy, oh my glorious Ziggy. How I fell in love with my Starman. He was the friend Bea needed when she didn't know she needed one so desperately. His own grief in life was beyond heartbreaking. There are times when you feel for a character and others where you want to reach through the pages/screen and just comfort them - Zig was that for me.
“All you see are scars. You need someone to make you see stars.”
This book makes me want to see the stars in those I love even more. It reminds you that everyone has faults, but so do you, and it is what you do with those faults and how you become stronger that defines you.
