The Brightest Star by B. Cranford

Title: The Brightest Star

Author: B. Cranford

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 13, 2017


The last thing Brighton Starling needed on one of the most humiliating days of her life was to run into her ex…

Naturally, she did. And two years after he walked away, leaving her hurt and broke, he somehow managed to look better than ever. Of course.

She didn’t want to see him, let alone speak to him, but apparently, he wasn’t going to give her a choice.

All Sebastian Figures wanted was to talk to the one that got away…

No, scratch that. The one he drove away with poor decisions and lies, big and small.

She might have been having a bad day, but she was still the bright, beautiful girl he’d been missing for far too long. His brightest star. Still the only girl he’d ever want. If only he could convince her of that.

Is it too late to say sorry?

Sebastian wants a chance to win back Brighton’s trust—and her future.
Brighton wants to be able to move on from the past, once and for all.

But neither of them want to say one final goodbye…

The Brightest Star by B. Cranford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Brightest Star really is the brightest star. A beautiful debut from B. Cranford, it is a magnificent, hopeful story that just made me ache with feelings.

Sebastian left Brighton high and dry, and is fighting his way back. He is so romantic, he is working so hard to prove himself. The love story is in the little details, and the author nailed it. Brighton, I loved her. She made me feel, she made me chuckle. Full of strength and resolve, she’s so real. I admired her empathy and tenacity.

The Brightest Star is a fantastic read. It’s witty, fun, and SO cute. It’s balanced, emotionally, and well paced. Quick enough to keep a hold on you, and slow enough for a very satisfying slow burning romance. Brighton and Sebastian have wonderful chemistry. That awkward tension you feel running into a painful ex? It’s all there. It’s also surrounded by such hopeful message of forgiveness. I so enjoyed reading this book, and I can’t wait to see what comes from the author next.

Perfect for a beach read or snuggling in bed, The Brightest Star is a highly recommended, MUST READ from me!

Cranford is a proud Australian living in the USA, a lover of books, breadsticks and bed, and the mother of two children who are far too similar to their father for her liking. A lifelong reader, she dove into the romance genre on the recommendation of her best friend and hasn’t looked back since. After three years as a blogger, she decided it was high time she finally finished one of the 12,002 books she’d started writing, and the end result was The Brightest Star.
