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…?
“Happy birthday, Low. I waited for you.”
The instant his voice filtered through the phone, my body stilled and warmed at the same time. My breath came out in a soft, audible huff, and my eyes shut as hundreds of welcome memories flooded my mind.
I didn’t have to look at the screen to know who was calling. I would know that voice anywhere, and I should have been expecting his call. Not just his call. This call. We’d been preparing for and talking about this call for two and a half years now.
My lips and fingers trembled, and I almost dropped the phone as I tried to make my throat work.
“I waited for you”, played over and over again like a broken record. A broken record with the most beautiful music still coming from it.
Turning my head just enough to look over my shoulder, I eyed the guy shrugging into his shirt, and my chest ached when I faced forward again.
No longer seeing the dorm room I was standing in, I let our memories consume me. “I—” I took in a shaky breath, and my voice came out as a strained whisper. “I didn’t wait for you.”
There was nothing. No sound, no response—only the most heartbreaking silence I’ve ever endured.
I had to take a day or 3 to process this book and what it did to me before I was able to sit down and pen a review for what I read. Such unbelievable pain and sorrow mixed with such a timeless love story, it was the perfect combination of triumph and tragedy.
Low and Knox met when she was too young for the two of them to be together as a couple but he told her he loved her to the stars and that he'd wait for her to turn 18 so they could finally be together and she told him he was wasting is time. It was their "thing" to say this to each other and became one of my favorite parts of their story, although no one else in the two characters' lives understood it or found it particularly romantic.
Low and Knox faced many challenges from the day they met trying to be together, from her age, their friends and family, time, miles and then another man. Just when Knox thinks Low's 18th birthday is upon them to finally put them together forever, one phrase from Low on the phone ruins it all for the two of them. It completely shattered my heart to know what they's spent years working toward and what we wanted so much to believe was inevitable has changed with one call. I held a little resentment toward Low for it but at the same time, had to keep reading with the hopes that it would change.
Enter Low's husband and monster, the man that was the reason Low and Knox did not end up together when she turned 18. Low's monster. From the very start we know he is not a character we will come to love, root for or want to see end up with Low in the end. He mentally and physically abuses her almost from the start and by the time she has been with him just four years, he has broken the woman we first met, the woman that Knox loved.
This book had some major twist and turns and was an emotional roller coaster that I thought would wreck a few times but I had to know how it ended, if Harlow's monster got what he deserved and if Low and Knox got the ending they so needed after all the years they fought and remained in each other's hearts.
I loved this book, the good, the bad and the super horrible parts. It was a page turner for sure and not one you will want to walk away from once you start. Five stars from me for Eye Candy Bookstore. ~ Kellie

About Molly McAdams:
Molly 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.
