Swoon Thursday (#218): Starfall by Melissa Landers

This week, my swoon is from Starfall by Melissa Landers!


He tightened both arms around her, crushing their bodies so close there wasn't space to daw more than a gasp. He didn't care. Air didn't matter, only Cassia. It'd been so long since she'd let him hold her like this, and he would willingly suffocate if that was what it took to keep her in his arms. He tasted her mouth while squeezing her in a furious compulsion to pull her inside him. He wondered if he could ever feel close enough to her, even if they went all the way for once. Somehow he doubted it, but he desperately wanted to find out.

He kissed her hard, maybe too hard, because she broke away and panted against his lips. For a moment, he worried she might change her mind, but then she arched her hips and made a noise that said she didn't want this to end any more than he did.

- Hardcover, page 156



I loved Starflight, and so far this companion sequel is okay (though I don't think it's going to touch my obsession with Starflight). Catch my review soon!

    1. It's not bad! Just not as 5-star-good as book one.

  3. Gosh i guess it has the "second book syndrome" :P Sorry you didn't enjoy it as much as the first one! I've never read anything by Melissa Landers but if you're obsessed with book 1 then it must really be amazing :P!

    1. Like I told previous visitors, it's not like this one is awful? Just not as good. I looooved Starflight, Kariny! You could read that one and stop there, since this is a companion series. ;)

  4. I felt the same way! I liked the main characters of Starflight so much more.
    Hopefully Melissa's next book is better :)

  10. I have Starflight on my bookshelf ready to go. I have heard great things about it. Too bad the sequel isn't quite as good.

    1. Ohhh, Carole, you're in for a treat! Starflight is my favorite Landers book. This one isn't terrible but definitely not *as* good as Starflight.

  11. I haven't read either of these, but ooh swoony quotes indeed!

  12. Aw, bummer that you're not enjoying this one as much, BUT it is good to know that it's a companion and not a slumpy sequel! Does Starflight stand well on it's own then? If so, I might still go back and give it a read!

    1. I think part of it is the whole best friends/"second-chance romance" thing. It's not really second-chance, but the romance is so complicated and I'm not a huge fan of some aspects. SOME.

      Starflight is a perfect standalone! Read it and stop there! It is soooo good, Becky. :D

    1. She is awesome! Book one was a lot better than book two (I haven't finished book two but I already know). I hope you enjoy it though, Carina!

  14. I too loved Starflight but after seeing numerous reviews online I've decided to hold off reading Starfall for now. Great swoon worthy excerpt!

    1. Yeah, I almost wish I hadn't preordered it, because it's slightly disappointing overall. :/ But still not bad? And the cover is gorgeous! I love having a beautiful matching set of hardcovers. ^_^
