About TO THE STARS: In the second standalone book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.
He promised to wait for her. She told him he was wasting his time. Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.
When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was two and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.
Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?
And don’t miss the first book in the Thatch Series…
Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iTunes ** Kobo ** GooglePlay ** AudioMolly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and fried pickles, and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm … or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
I have enjoyed getting to know the Thatch crew. They are all strong, well- thought out characters that drew me in and tugged my heartstrings from the first page to the last.
Molly's writing appeals to my love of angst. To the Stars in an incredibly emotional tale. There is so much back and forth and up and down, a definite roller coaster ride.
Knox Alexander had promised to wait for Harlow Evans until she turned 18. Unfortunately, she did not wait for him. Years later, Knox is filling the hole Harlow left in his heart with every willing female within a 50 mile radius. When he spies Harlow one day while in town, he can't stop the familiar rush that lingers low in his belly nor can he help the overwhelming desire to take care of her.
Harlow is hiding something. While she is still achingly beautiful, Knox doesn't fail to notice how thin she has grown and the haunted look in her eyes. Has she been ill? Everything about her calls out to him to somehow make things better for her, and he would if she would only stop trying to run away from him.
Knox and Harlow's story is told in a mixture of present day occurrences blended with snippets of the past. With each past snapshot, you feel their connection grow and it made me sad to know that they had somehow missed their chance to be together. Theirs was a beautifully swoony young love story.
The more Knox sees of Harlow, the more he knows that something is wrong. However, as his friends repeatedly point out, he put his faith in her once before and she crushed him. Is he once again seeing what he wants to see or is there more hidden behind the layers Harlow wears for everyone to see?
While I liked the book overall, there were a few small issues for me. Make that one issue that recurred throughout the book and it was the reason that Knox and Harlow couldn't date until she was 18. It seemed like everyone went overboard with their concerns, especially when she ended up dating (and eventually marrying) someone who was also older than her. I guess maybe I'm not up to date on the exact laws concerning this type of thing, but it seemed blown out of proportion to me. But I guess there had to be something that kept them from being together when they were younger. It wasn't a big enough issue to keep me from enjoying the book, but I did have to mention it.
Anyway, I give it 4 out of 5 stars because it was riveting and gut-wrenching.
