When foul-mouthed, tattooed, vegan Marie Diaz-Austin accepted a summer internship on a ranch north of Santa Barbara to work with underprivileged and special needs kids she was expecting hard work. She wasn't expecting the gorgeous, but conservative rancher, Will Thrash who wants nothing to do with left-wing hippies like her.
While they both may be stubborn when it comes to climate change, they're much less rigid about considering a summer fling. Although they hate each other’s politics, they can't deny their immediate and growing attraction to each other. But when the stakes are raised and they're forced to make a choice what will give? Their principles or themselves?
I am so lucky to be given the chance to read The Stars in the Sky, this is my first Leslie McAdam read and it only left me wanting to read her first book The Sun and the Moon. I loved everything about this story. The characters, the political difference in views, the humor and the ever so gorgeous Will Thrash.
Will Thrash conservative rancher as he may be he has a easy going, caring, dominate sexual side to him and is willing to accept people for who they are. I found his character charming and lovable Will is a man that knows what he wants so that only makes his attraction for hippie Marie Diaz-Austin exciting and infuriating.
Marie Diaz-Austin accepts a internship at a ranch that works with underprivileged and special needs kids. Marie is loving and caring but I found that her foul mouth and view on politics, love for organic food and not being so accepting of other point of views overpowered her and at times became an annoyance. If it wasn't for the strong sexual chemistry and witty banter that Will and Marie shared. I would have wished will to run away from this woman who can't make up her mind for a man that is practically willing to listen, change and love someone who is totally different from him. Will this strong, frustrating, beautiful woman open her eyes,before it's to late and she pushes Will away?
The Stars in the Sky is such a fun read and I didn't want to put it down. I feel everyone should meet Will and Aubrey and all the sexiness these to conjure up.

Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she's not in the writing cave you'll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
