A SKY FULL OF STARS is the story of Owen Shaughnessy, the
genius in the family, that continues The
Series. I have been looking forward to Owen's story. I
wanted to see how Samantha Chase would develop Owen's
uniqueness. Owen is a brilliant astrophysicist who is very
comfortable in the science world. But it's a different world
for him when he meets free-spirited artist Brooke Matthews.
They are true polar opposites in personalities.
Brooke's uncle, who is also Owen's mentor, suggests that Owen
hire her to be his assistant when he leads a team of
scientists to study a meteor shower. Owen his reluctant
because he is experiencing feelings he has never had before
and he doesn't know how to handle things. In a panic he calls
his twin Riley for advice. But Riley is not available. So
he goes down the line calling his brothers and ends up talking
to the least serious of them all -- Quinn. The talk surprises
them both. Owen expected Quinn to make fun of him but instead
had a very serious and heartfelt conversation. Quinn was
surprised that Owen would even ask him for advise. This was a
nice moment of brotherly bonding.
I love the way Samantha Chase writes this series. The mother
in this family dies when the kids are young. So when you're
reading each of their stories and they each reflect back on
how her death affected them you think of them as little kids
again. But the affect that Brooke and Owen have on each other
is profound. Owen has always been sort of in his own world.
But Brooke brings out a whole different side of him that
totally shocks his family, especially his twin Riley. Brooke
has some pain and loss surrounded by some guilt she has never
dealt with. When she opens up to Owen she finds support and
understanding. This is a wonderful series about the different
dynamics in a large family and how they compliment each other.
The stars are about to align in the newest
Shaughnessy brothers romance!
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
Brilliant astrophysicist Dr. Owen Shaughnessy feels more
connected to the cosmos than to people. He's great with
calculations, but when he leads a team of scientists to
study a famous meteor shower, he doesn't factor in his
free-spirited artist assistant Brooke Matthews.
LOVE CAN DAZZLE YOU
Polar opposites in personality, the friction between them
threatens to derail the project. But the beauty and mystery
of the night sky draw Owen and Brooke together—and she's
going to surprise him in ways the stars never could.
