Meet Me Under the Stars
by KD Proctor
Publication Date: July 18, 2017

New Adult, Contemporary, Romance 


When ratings for her popular DIY show start to circle the drain after the sudden death of her sister, Charlotte “Charlie” Conti has only one mission—to plan a comeback. But her sister had other plans. As part of the will, Charlie must work with *him* to create a memorial scholarship in her sister’s memory. The same *him* Charlie fell in love with three years ago while working at a summer camp. The same *him* she dumped, to protect his heart. Sexy, British player, Nate Walsh, has sixty days to find a new job or he’ll be deported back to England where he’s no longer welcome. He doesn’t have time to work on a memorial scholarship with *her*. The same *her* who shattered his heart without explanation or warning. The same *her* he’s never gotten over. Unable to agree on the specifics of the scholarship, Nate and Charlie challenge each other to a winner-takes-all competition. They both know the only way to win is to turn up the heat and tempt one another with the one thing they both want: each other. But as sparks fly, their true feelings resurface. Nate and Charlie must decide if their love is worth the effort and if they can overcome their disastrous past mistakes to spend forever together.

5 star, Lynzi 

Emotional. Raw. Intriguing. Gut-renching. Heart-tightening. Throat-clogging.

Those are just a few words that raced through my mind as I thought of this story. I know Melissa Toppen's work is amazing, but this one blew my mind. More so than the last book I read by her. And this is just my second book by her, and my goodness, I am hooked!

This story made my heart break and come alive all at the same time. It was an amazing emotion roller-coaster ride I didn't want to get off of. I literally could not stop reading. Even when my eyes started to cross, and the words started to blur, I had to push on. I HAD to keep going. It started out as a 'one more chapter' thing. Then turned into an 'I only have 30% left', '20%', '10%'. And at 2am it was a 'dayum I might as well just finish it. It is the fastest I have ever read a book that long. I'm kinda disappointed that I read it so fast though, because now it's over, and I want more.

Sebastian is the high school star quarterback who has everything a kid could want along with a line of girls following in his wake. He doesn't date, he hooks up and let's go. His life looks perfect on the outside. He's popular, rich, and never wants for anything. But things aren't always as the seem. His life isn't nearly as perfect as everyone thinks. That is, until he meets Tessa, and she changes everything.

With Tessa suffering a broken heart over her cheating ex, going to a party where he will most likely be, is the last thing she wants to do. But she can't win when it comes to the relentlessness of her best friends. Little did she know her night and life would change all in a span of a few hours.

Their love isn't easy, even at their young ages, but it is beautiful. Even through all the heartache, pain, betrayal, and disappointments, it's still beautiful.

"It's about where the night ends."
