Review: Why Stars Chase the Sun by C.R. Ellis

Why Stars Chase the Sun
(Forget Me Knot #1)
by C.R. Ellis

Twenty-four hours.
A no-strings-attached adventure with the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen—this was my alcohol-slash-lust-fueled proposal, and given before I could consider the potential ramifications. While his looks alone are enough to make a girl swoon, it’s the rest of him—a perfect balance of mysterious, sweet, and effortlessly charming—that draws me in. Through his cryptic comments and half-answers, he’s quickly become an enigma I’m determined to solve.

One way or another, this adventure promises to snap the stagnant, lackluster pattern my love life has been locked in lately.
Is it naïve and a little reckless to think this won’t blow up in my face? Probably.
But the bigger question is the only one I need to answer…
Is the chance to soar among the stars worth the risk of being burned when the sun eventually rises?

Love is a mistake I won’t make again.
My rules are simple. Keep things surface-deep. Don’t make plans. And never, ever get attached.
One look at her is all it takes for me to break my first rule.
One conversation with her is all it takes for me to question everything.
Which means accepting her proposal is bound to be a mistake.
She has no idea who I am or what kind of demons I live with, so I tell myself there’s no harm in spending one day with her. But the more I lose myself in her, the more she brings me out of the darkness and into her light, the harder it’ll be to let her go.
When reality comes crashing down on us in the worst way possible, I have to decide between walking away…or risking everything for the woman who breaks all of my rules.

This was such an endearing stellar read!

Emmett and Jade met when they were both nursing their broken hearts. A CEO with family issues and a wedding planner who was cheated on by the man she was about to marry. Both had sworn off relationships and preferred not to fall again. But when they met again, both knew that they were at risk at each other. And they’d got 24 hours to make their fantasies come true.

Twenty-four hours. No strings. No tomorrow.

No tears, No buts. No hellos. No goodbyes.

If only that were enough.




I love Emmett Sinclair. This guy is unbelievable! Having dealt with a controlling father and competitive brother, Emmett’s take on relationship and love is understandable. Having to deal with a woman who instantly got him hot and bothered, now that’s another story.  I love how the sparks flew between him and Jade. Like the title implies, Emmett was like the star that chases the sun, the beauty, the brightness that is Jade.

And yes, I love Jade too, for her wit, charm and passion. While she may have been hurt by a former flame, she kept calm and carried on. This little firecracker perfectly lighted up Emmett’s dark past even when there was a storm brewing on the horizon.

Author C.R. Ellis did a remarkable job with the characters and storyline. She was able to come up with something gritty, funny, exciting, dark and thrilling – all perfect ingredients to create one delectable story. Would definitely crave for more of her books soon!!


C.R. Ellis is a Texas native who writes contemporary romance novels with plenty of drama and humor, and just enough heat to ignite e-readers and paperbacks everywhere. She can almost always be found attached to her laptop with coffee nearby and her two trusty canine sidekicks by her side. When she’s not writing or plotting, she enjoys going to concerts with her sweet husband, dragging him along to see rom-coms at any theater that serves booze, checking off the next destination on her ever-growing bucket list, and trying new recipes.

Her passion for writing stems from her lifelong love of reading, and she often binge-reads entire books in a day. She’s an unapologetic book hoarder, and her paperback collection is rivaled only by her massive shoe collection.
