Product Description

Product Description

*This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the first book in the New Adult duet, Crossing Stars.*

*Steal the Moon (Crossing Stars Duet, Book2), the final book in the Crossing Stars Duet, will release January 2017*

~What would you risk for love? Would you cross the stars? Steal the moon?
Ella’s an American in a foreign land. Raj is Jordanian royalty. Fate has brought them together and their diverse worlds are about to collide.~

A year shy of graduating from Georgetown University, Ella Wallace feels like she's losing direction. Having carved her own path through life, rejecting her family’s elitist influences, the last thing she wants is to waste time and prove her parents right. A happenstance summer-long program abroad offers the perfect opportunity to immerse herself in volunteer work, finding richness in family and purpose she has never experienced before.

Prince Rajaa bin Ammaar is returning home to Jordan from Georgetown University. His intent is to spearhead a refugee program meant to bring peace to his country. Amidst threats of civil war and revolt, Raj stands for his convictions, even when they challenge his family and the very culture he is preordained to uphold.

 A chance encounter at a crowded party in D.C. brought Ella and Raj together for one fleeting moment –never expected to meet again. That is until their opposing worlds collide in Jordan. With the Syrian refugee program as their reuniting bond, they must cross the stars and defy their clashing cultures to protect a forbidden love that crosses the ill-fated stars. And their fight for their love could become deadly.

 Prepare yourself for a  journey both geographically and culturally into the turbulent Middle East where Ella and Raj’s clashing fates bring forth a storm of forbidden love, hatred, deceit, scandal, war, suspense, and the timeless battle to defy what is written in the stars.
Reminiscent of the timeless Shakespearean tale of Romeo and Juliet, Raj and Ella's star-crossed passionate fight for the deep love they share will have you reading each twist and turn in this duet with bated breath.  

**This book is intended for readers 18 and older due to explicit content.**

What begins as an everyday young adults' struggle to balance their daily lives of college, work, & family lives quickly takes on a whole new world as we are transported across the world to experience things we've only heard about from afar. The cultural differences & language being the most obvious are only the tip of the iceberg. We are quickly thrust into this unknown land hoping to make a difference, but before we know it we are on the look out for terrorists, drug lords, & a prince gone wild.
The pull of these characters is completely captivating. Their voices screaming to be heard. The twists adding spice, laughter, & grief. An exciting blend of drama, action, romance, traitors vs. loyalty, responsibility vs. desire, royalty vs. commoners, star crossed lovers, & so much more! What would you do when the expectations set upon you are so far from your hearts desire(s)?
Then there's that ending ... dangling us over a cliff then plummeting to its depths at rocket speed. Ughhh!!! I need to see how Raj & El's story will end NOW!

*This story is for mature audiences due to sexual situations & language*

*received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*


*cough* This is the second book I've read with settings in the area of the Middle East (first one was Kite Runner) and this was really interesting! It's two people with their own rich problems, expectations and set responsibilities to uphold the family honor. Doing what you're told vs doing what's best for yourself. Their love was intriguing for me, especially when they didn't even really talk until well after a few chapters. The story built them up for me, showing me their worlds while teasing me with their glances of happening to be in the same place (I know it was you Fate) and- geez, just wow!

I fell in love with this because I have a soft spot for when it comes to volunteering, and El goes to help the Syrian refugees, a serious problem that I've all but heard about on the news this past year. It gave me a bit of guilty pleasure to see her do something for the kids who suffer through war and death. I fell harder and faster with every class she had with the little ones. Add that to her attraction to Raj? *whistles*

Their meeting was a bit fast for me, but I could understand why Raj would feel the way he did, especially after all the coincidences they'd had before finally meeting in Jordan. I love fated love. *sighs* Their relationship was fun and exciting with the secrecy and intensity. It was funny to see how much some of El's cursing aggravated him haha. I also loved her host family! Won't say much about it for spoilers sake, but I LOVED the sense of their culture I got from this, and the clear sense that they're good people. Loved the emphasis on there being good people no matter the race/belief/religion/status, btw.
