Stars die in one of two ways.
So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony … or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.
When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.
Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.
But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.
And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.
When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions.
She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?
When Stars Burn Out by Carrie Aarons was a sweet and beautiful second chance story. A shared history, a broken heart and a possible second chance to win back the one that got away. You just know a story like that will have all the feels.
Told in dual point of views with a look at the past and present. I was captivated from start to finish. Paxton and Demi knew each other in college, but Paxton decided football was more important. Heartbroken, Demi moved forward. Years later, circumstances bring them back together again. But this time around, Demi is determined to protect her heart. But Paxton is just as determined to win her back.
Paxton was a complete jerk to Demi in college. But years later, you could see how much he has grown and come to realize what matters the most. Demi was so hurt over what happened with Paxton, she was never able to really get over him. The last thing she wants is to be left heartbroken again. Could she learn to open up to her again?
With every book I read from Carrie Aarons, the more addicted I become. She gives us emotionally charged stories that consumes her readers. I loved the characters, the story and the feels in this story. Carrie Aarons gave us a lovely second chance story full of hope and possibilities.
