Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

A book with very little angst but packed to the brim with all the loveliness of falling in love.

What was the book about?
When Darcy Lowell’s brother sets her up on a blind date with a work colleague, she decides she will endure one more of these ridiculous set-ups before she tells him to call it quits. If there was ever a date to end all dates, it was the one with Elle Jones. Elle is late, a mess and quite frankly not what she was expecting. The sooner this date ends, the better.

But the next day when her brother starts quizzing her on it and suggesting speed dating, she decides to lie and tell him the date went brilliant. Maybe if he thinks she’s dating someone, then he will stop bugging her. Now she just needs to convince Elle to take part in the charade. How hard can that be?

Featured Tropes
Opposites attract, Bisexual leading lady, New series, Fake relationship. 

Book Pros
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. A friend and fellow reviewer recommended it, she has never steered me wrong and this book was no different. Another reviewer said “It made my heart happy” and this is such a great description of how I also felt by the end of the book. 

I loved Elle and think she was one hundred per cent my favourite character. Someone every reader will fall in love with. And I never knew there was so much behind astrology. I am going to set some time aside to read more about it. Alexandria Bellefleur has my interest piked.

This is the start of a new series. The next two books focus on secondary characters from this book, Darcy’s brother, Brendon (book 2) and then Elle’s roommate, Margot (book 3). I’m generally not one to read heterosexual romance novels anymore since I found lesbian/WLW fiction however, I will read Brendon’s story because I need more Darcy and Elle. Also, Brendon and Margot are both so vibrant in this book that it would be a shame not to continue to enjoy this story.

Character Chemistry
So in the beginning, Elle and Darcy are attracted to one another, but the emotional spark wasn’t really there. But as you continue to read you discover that their first meeting was just a blip because when Elle and Darcy let go, boy do they have chemistry and they also get each other in ways others do not. One may say they were soul mates

Wrap up
Written in the Stars is the first book by Alexandria Bellefleur I have read, and it will definitely not be the last. It is good to see more diverse books on the table with authors writing characters from all walks of life and love.
