Blog Tour Review- Unlit Star by Lindy Zart

 Title: Unlit Star
Author: Lindy Zart
Rating: 4/5
We are not guaranteed anything, not even this life.

Rivers Young is the popular guy untouchable by reality. He is like a star—bright, consuming, otherworldly. The thing about stars, though, is that they eventually fall, and he is no different. 

He falls far and he falls hard. 

Delilah Bana is the outcast enshrouded in all of life's ironies. Alone, in the dark, like dusk as it falls on the world. When Rivers hits the ground, she is the night that catches him. In the darkness, they meld into something beautiful that shines like the sun. 

Only, the greater the star is, the shorter its lifespan

My Review
So I signed up for this blog tour thinking that the book was something entirely different from what it was, and when I looked the book up to refresh my memory (I signed up a while ago) I must be totally honest... I did not have high expectations and I thought that I may not like it, well if anyone is having similar thoughts I will tell you that in my case... I was wrong.
My issue with this book is Delilah's internal monologue it was extremely long and wordy, yes she is a loner so she will converse with herself a lot, and yes she had some gems of wisdom hidden in there but you had to wade through a lot of other stuff to get to them. I am also not sure I really liked the characters of River and Delilah, I loved the idea of them and I loved what they did for each other, changing lives for the better but I am not sure I will remember them exactly and just the tale the two of them wove, and I think that is enough.
I don't really read much contemporary romance but this was an intense tale of love and loss and it gave me pause to think about A Walk to Remember, So if you love a good romance that will pull at your heart strings, and you also don't mind crying (This one will make you cry I assure you) then this is the book you need to read.
Overall I really loved this book and I am very glad I signed up for the tour!
