What if you met the right person at the absolute wrong time?
Val Saunders and Sam Newman are two Hollywood actors at opposite ends of their careers. Hers is skyrocketing while his, well, never really took off. Fate brings them together when they're cast as lovers on a steamy new television series. The on-screen chemistry between them is off the charts and when it spills over into a real life attraction, they find themselves in a situation.
Sam is an honorable man. He has been faithful to a toxic, Hollywood marriage for nearly half his life. He's never strayed and isn't about to start now, despite the fact that he is falling head over heels for his co-star.
Val's worked hard to get her career on the path to the A-list and the last thing she wants, or needs, is a scandal. If only her heart and her brain were working with the same script.
Romance is an ideal. This is a love story. Falling Stars explores the possibility of second chances and asks hard questions about duty, fidelity, life in the public eye, and the cost of being happy. This is the beginning of a sexy, sensual, and emotional roller-coaster ride that reminds us that love, while not often easy, is always worth it.

I loved this book! I really enjoy Xio's writing style and the story was well written. Though I was waiting with bated breath for Val and Sam to finally get together. You're so cruel to tease me like that Ms. Axelrod!!! Of course this story hits a soft spot for me because the parallel to the show Scandal. I have often analyzed Kerry and Tony's body language and interaction during interviews, wondering if the off-the-charts chemistry they have on camera crosses over to the real world. So Falling Stars was right up my alley. I can't wait to get into the sequel! Great job again, Xio!
This book was so amazing that I couldn't put it down for a second! The relationship between Val and Sam is written so realistically that you can't help but feel for they're situation and root for them to be together. If anyone out there is a Scandal fan they would definetly love this book. Can't wait till the next book comes out so I can devour that one as well!
When I picked up my copy of this book, I'd already read one of Xio's books and had seen several positive reviews for this one. Now I know why. It's real. Sure it's fiction, but it covers real life and real emotions beautifully. Understand, while it has romance, it's not the standard romance fair...and I didn't care a bit. The characters were all richly developed and the story beautifully crafted. I'm greatly looking forward to seeing where things end up with Val and Sam in Starlight, the next in the series.
