    If you like a book filled with poorly worded sexual euphemisms and a weak plot line, then this is the book for you!

    The main character referred to her vagina at one point as the “zesty taco zone.” Seriously. I kid you not. Even if I had been enjoying Stardust up until this point, I still would have frowned in disgust and muttered, “Ewwww…” It’s juvenile and makes me think that Peaches needs a round of antibiotics and to stay away from any guy’s “hotdog stand” (another winner). Peaches also yells out, “f&%k my ass, you porn pony”….yeah…

    All of the euphemisms for genitalia and sex read like a 14 year old boy wrote the book. We’re all adults (presumably) reading adult fiction. You can call a penis a penis (or c*%k, d@#k, wang, dong, etc). Not everything needs to be innuendo, and stop having Peaches refer to her breasts as “peaches.” We get it…she has big boobs and goes by Peaches…move on.

    If you want a great read about a celebrity/average girl pairing, then read Love Unscripted, Relatively Famous, or Eversea. All three are written by talented writers.

    This review is from: Stardust (Paperback)

    From Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, and Romance

    At A Glance
    It’s not the most perfect book but for me personally, it took my breath away.

    The Good
    Just so you know Stardust was formally known as We Are Made of Stardust, which I did a giveaway on a couple weeks ago. I am going with the title and cover that is current on the author’s website, but they are the same book.

    I have a weird, sometimes dirty sense of humor and that’s why this book was so great for me. It just fit who I am and what I think is funny. It may not be for everyone, but I think most people will see the specialness this book holds.

    Stardust is the type of book where you sit dumbfounded, thinking No, she didn’t just say that, did she? No, he didn’t just do that, did he? It’s like the roughest contemporary romance I have ever read when it comes to sex, language, and overall outrageousness. And that’s why I am in love. Madly in love. That’s the way Stardust makes me feel. It had me laughing, it had me pulling my hair out in frustration, and it had me feeling tingly.

    Peaches was my curvy, witty hero. Being plus sized myself, I can’t help but love seeing a protagonist who has curves and is well with herself. Sure, she has some insecurities, but all girls do. Peaches is strong, bold, lovable, spunky, and hilarious. The people around her can’t help but be drawn to her, even if she thinks she is boring. I absolutely loved how she handled Dalton. She didn’t let his celebrity change who she was and how she treated him. He was just a smokin’ guy that she wanted to play hide and seek with with their private parts

    Dalton was eatable. If you didn’t know, he is somewhat based off Ian Somerhalder and his character Daemon from Vampire Diaries. Oh yeah, I just heard one of your eggs drop, getting read for Ian. Don’t even try to deny it. (Oooh, I’m spicy today) Dalton is everything your mother warned you about. He’s charming, forward, and has sex on the brain. And a freaking TV star to boot! Any girl who doesn’t want to drop-trou when he walks by is either dead or…well, dead. Death is the only way you could not want him. He’s playful and mysterious. But his personality is so strong that it almost borders on scary. He holds nothing back, but that works for Peaches. They are both very upfront people who like sex. They don’t need love or a relationship. But that doesn’t mean they don’t feel anything for each other. They are both cautious people who don’t want to get hurt.

    The dialogue is some of the best I have seen. Stardust is a well written story that sucks you in and spits you out, in a good way. It’s emotional, sexy, and nerve-wracking. I knew the mysterious part of Dalton was going to bite Peaches in her curvy butt, and the sense of foreboding caused great tension throughout the book.

    When I first finished Stardust I was like, “Why???? Why must it end that way? You are breaking my heart, Mimi.” But I still thought it was a great ending. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, but when it finally did I realized Mimi took that shoe, slashed the crap out of it, fed it to a dog, then set it aflame as she laughed evilly over the carcass. Well, that’s how I picture it in my head anyway. Yes, Mimi holds nothing back with that ending, but it really did make me excited for the next book.

    The Bad
    Yes, I gave it 4.5 stars, because that’s how much I enjoyed it but there are two things that didn’t quite work for the book. One is that the plot isn’t very complicated. There really isn’t much of a plot arc until the end. But it worked for me because I just enjoyed reading about Peaches and Dalton. Another thing that I found annoying was that almost everyone has very similar senses of humor. It’s almost impossible to have that many people in one group be that witty, and almost always in a sexual way.

    The Snuggly
    Peaches and Dalton just worked together, even though they were pretty opposite in a lot of ways. They had the most awkward start but that’s what makes it fun. They aren’t really romantic and they didn’t have the most perfect sex. Their relationship felt more real because of it. They hade great sexual attraction that made for some hot scenes, but as a couple they need work. And I like that.

    This may be labeled new adult but I think the sex is adult. It’s pretty risqué and I loved every minute of it. Not for the faint of heart or easily embarrassed.

    Final Thoughts
    Mimi really created some interesting characters that will stick with you long after finishing this book. If you keep an open mind, Stardust will blow you away. And the ending guarantees that you will be dying to read the next book. I know I am. Highly recommended.

    “You don’t know what you’re getting yourself into,” she snarled.
    “Let go of me before I punch you some new freckles!”

    This review is from: Stardust (Peaches Monroe, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    This is a funny, enjoyable, light read, especially the antics of the main female character, Peaches. She is a self proclaimed fat girl, living in a small town, who has a TV star, Dalton Deangelo, literally run into her while he is in town filming a movie. This plot line is used in many other books, including Love Unscripted by Tina Reber, which is one of my favorite recently released romance books. Stardust differs in that it has lots of funny one-liners from Peaches, such as when a pesky reporter comes into the bookstore where she works looking for Dalton, Peaches says, ” The novels probably have too many words for you, but we do have some nice coffee table books.” Overall, unlike Love Unscripted, this book has the famous man wanting to go to a wedding with the heroine right away, on the first night they meet, which I found to be a bit much. Really, even non-famous men don’t want to go meet a girls’ family at a wedding when they first met. The story continues with dates, steamy sex scenes, one-liners, and such until it comes to a very dramatic cliff hanger that I totally did not expect.

    All in all, I found it an amusing book and I recommend it if you are looking for something light to read while at the beach or on vacation this summer. It is relatively short at 236 pages.

    Stardust can be found on Amazon and other places. When I bought it, the cost was $3.99.
