Review 'Rewrite The Stars' by Julieann Dove


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40385691-rewrite-the-stars
For ten summers Claire and her mother had been guests at the Prescott’s beach house at Kelly’s Cove. And for ten years she played with Mallory and her twin brother, Colin. But it wasn’t until she returned after college graduation for her last summer there, that she realized Colin had grown into a guy who made her knees knock just by smiling at her. Being from different worlds, she knew nothing would come from her attraction to him.

Having returned to the states from studying abroad for four years, the last person Colin thought he’d find staying in his bedroom was Claire Ashton. Lanky and awkward during her adolescent years, he had to look twice to make sure this was the same girl. After a week together it was obvious he’d overlooked something before, because he felt things for her he’d never experienced before. There was only one problem—his last name and all that came with it would never permit him to be with her.

In the end, it’s either love or prestige that will win in the game of love.

My Review:


When I read the book description of ‘Rewrite the Stars’ I knew this was a book I wanted to read. I love reading romance novels and this book just sounded so good. And I also loved that cover. So I was super excited when I received the email saying I could read this book.  

In ‘Rewrite the Stars’ we meet Claire. Claire has spent her summers with her mother at the Prescott’s Beach House for years. And for years she spent her summers there with Mallory and her brother Colin. After Claire’s mom passes away, Claire is surprised that Mrs. Prescott still invites her to come stay at the Beach House. Back at the Beach House Claire sees Colin again for the first time in years, and she is immediately swapped away by him. And for Colin, seeing Claire again after all these years definitely awakens something in him. But they are from two totally different worlds. And Colin’s family is not easy. Their name and status mean a lot to them. But will their love be enough to stand up to Colin’s family? 

When I first started reading this book I really enjoyed it. I really liked Claire’s character and I loved the whole summer romance thing she had with Colin. I definitely enjoyed reading about Claire and Colin especially in the beginning. And there romance seemed to develop very quickly. What became clear after reading only the first view chapters was that this book had more up its sleeve then only the romance development. I for one thought the book was already almost at its end, but we were only half way through and unfortunately I lost my interest a little then. 

This book has a major twist in it that wasn’t bad at all, but took a long time to be revealed. And I just didn’t really like this book as much after the first half. It wasn’t a bad story, but I just thought it took to long. And I really didn’t like the decisions Claire made. 
Unfortunately I also didn’t really ‘feel’ the romance between Clair and Colin as much as I would have liked. 

Overall this book was nice enough, but not really one for me.
