BLOG TOUR [Review + Giveaway!] Fallen Star (North Star Trilogy #1) by Jim Cangany


Fallen Star
North Star Trilogy #1
When ordinary guy, E.J. McCarty, crosses paths with not-so-ordinary Annie Wilson, extraordinary things happen. For E.J., it’s the start of a great adventure. For Annie, it’s an escape from colossal failure. But thanks to fate–and Amtrak–they’re thrust together on the cross-country ride of their lives.
E.J. and Annie like each other, so what’s the problem? Rock star/actress Cassandra Lawrence is the problem. Despite their obvious attraction to each other, Cassandra’s history in show biz and distrustful nature conspire to keep them apart.
Can E.J. break down the walls Cassandra has built around Annie? Can Annie learn to trust E.J. enough to let him even try? And what’s with E.J.’s bizarre dreams about the North Star? From Chicago, through the heartland and all the way to the Malibu Pier, they struggle to accept that while faith, hope and love are important, trust is the key to the future.

Jim Cangany’s debut novel Fallen Star allows you to have a front row seat on a cross country train and watch as two people who are so totally different, fall in love.

Because of Cangany's amazing, awe-inspiring, moving, and most of all breathtaking style of writing, I have now a new love for the contemporary romance genre. Jim did what no other contemporary romance book could do, he made me love it.  Jim is an artist with what he did with the words. Infusing them with emotion, and forcing them onto the reader. He is very talented indeed. 

The story is of two people E.J. McCarty and Annie Wilson who both took a train ride and found so much more than just a trip.  I enjoyed watching them get to know each other, become fast friends and even fall in love. As the main protagonists, they too became artists and painted a vivid world where their friendship started and blossomed into much more and the trust began to grow where at first there was none. They twisted and danced around each other as they told us their stories. I found myself cheering them on. The relationship was so sweet and innocent. I was truly in love with both of them. And the mystery of who Annie was and the missing celebrity was a great idea and made for a great plot.

I said it before, I don’t read this type of book and I don’t like this type but Cangany has definitely won me over and I can’t wait to read more from him.
