The author sent me a copy of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.


My rating:  4  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

High school is tough. Romance with a sexy alien—even tougher.

Star reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life….

Genre:  Upper YA / Paranormal Romance with Sci-Fi concept


Right now he’s only a news story. Never mind the fact that a mere glance from the teen Adonis turns my insides into a quivering mass. I just have to remember that I’m a professional. I got this. And like any great journalist, I must note every detail, so I jot down: Hayden: hacker and computer geek. Check.


My Opinion

The book introduces you to its protagonist, Sloane Masterson. Her task is to write an article about the guy who allegedly hacked the school computers. Her research includes observing him during lunch, after school in the parking lot, etc. She discovers incredible abilities in him. Falling in love doesn’t seem like the best idea and – strange things happen. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With Lost in Starlight, Sherry Soule has created the promising start of a YA paranormal romance with a hint of science fiction: The Starlight Saga. Reading Lost in Starlight means a reader’s realistic trip into a teenager’s life and emotions. At the same time it is an entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.

This is a book to read again; and the start of a series to be looking forward to.   🙂
