Book Review – Written in the Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur



After a disastrous blind date, Darcy Lowell is desperate to stop her well-meaning brother from playing matchmaker ever again. Love—and the inevitable heartbreak—is the last thing she wants. So she fibs and says her latest set up was a success. Darcy doesn’t expect her lie to bite her in the ass.

Elle Jones, one of the astrologers behind the popular Twitter account, Oh My Stars, dreams of finding her soul mate. But she knows it is most assuredly not Darcy… a no-nonsense stick-in-the-mud, who is way too analytical, punctual, and skeptical for someone as free-spirited as Elle. When Darcy’s brother—and Elle’s new business partner—expresses how happy he is that they hit it off, Elle is baffled. Was Darcy on the same date? Because… awkward.

When Darcy begs Elle to play along, she agrees to pretend they’re dating to save face. But with a few conditions: Darcy must help Elle navigate her own overbearing family over the holidays and their arrangement expires on New Year’s Eve. The last thing they expect is to develop real feelings during a fake relationship.

But maybe opposites can attract when true love is written in the stars?


5 out of 5 stars

This was my first time reading a F/F romance and it was so nice to see the bisexual representation in this book.

I buddy read this book with a friend of mine. I enjoyed reading this book along with her and gushing about Elle and Darcy with her.

Darcy and Elle were total opposites but they had such amazing chemistry together. You could just feel the connection forming between them and I was rooting for them throughout the book.

I’m looking forward to book 2 coming out in May, which will be Brendon’s story. I’m hoping that Margot will get a book of her own at some point as well. I loved all of the characters in this book.
