SUMMARY(from goodreads):
It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.


A timeless love story, THESE BROKEN STARS sets into motion a sweeping science fiction series of companion novels. The Starbound Trilogy: Three worlds. Three love stories. One enemy.
There are some books that I read and I love. But once I am finished, I am unable to form a coherent thought.
THESE BROKEN STARS was one of those books.
Even though I read it six months ago, I still cannot put into words what exactly I liked about it. It's mainly just feelings. And let me tell you, this book brought on the feelings.
All I can say is: this book blew my mind.
And you should read it, so your mind can be blown too.
CONTENT: Kissing, a couple sex scenes, but they're not really described. Some of the violence is a little descriptive, but it's not terribly gory.
