Tour! A Review of Behind the Stars by Leigh Talbert Moore

Behind the Stars by Leigh Talbert Moore
Genre: Young Adult (Science Fiction/Fantasy Romance)
Date Published: December 31, 2014
Publisher: Self

Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:
-Graduation is two weeks away.
-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.
-She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.

She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work. 
And she never expected to become a hero.

Red Dawn meets L O S T in this new action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.

Behind the Stars by Leigh Talbert Moore is broken up into six sections. I read all six back to back. I always get worried about sci-fi books. They rarely grab my attention, but this one was definitely one to read without that worry.

Prentiss was a pretty complex character. In the beginning, she has her little world. She chooses to keep herself blind to things, she has her little life plan, and she tells herself she's happy with it. As the story progresses, she comes out of her little world shell. Of course, being kidnapped has a way of waking a person up, but I enjoyed watching her strengthen as a character. I wasn't a fan of Jackson from the very beginning, and it got to the point where I didn't want to read any more of Prentiss's flashbacks with him.

Reading the interactions between Prentiss and Gallatin was addictive. I loved how that friendship grew. They were pretty adorable. Gallatin broke my heart at one point. It was like you could see his face in the moment. If you love something, let it go right?

This book was a wonderful read with suspense, drama, romance, and even a band of what I call the demented lost boys.

Behind the Stars by Leigh Talbert Moore was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Leigh Talbert Moore wrote her first graphic novel at the age of nine--about a lady scientist burned by acid. Sadly, the text of "Fury Woman" was lost, and Leigh's novelist aspirations went on hiatus.

Then, after a decade working in journalism, editing, marketing, and public relations, she began writing books again, and in 2009 completed Dragonfly. Today, Leigh is the author of several popular young adult and new adult novels, all with a strong romantic slant.

She lives with her husband and two young children in the middle of the country, where she conjures new worlds, characters, and situations while playing chauffeur, chaperone, group activity leader, and referee.

And she's still trying to remember the plot of Fury Woman..
