About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.

I don’t even know how to describe it. Honestly, just the sight of her left me speechless… she walked in and… the entire room was brighter…
Studies have shown that this is why you used to get wedgies… When you are out with a beautiful woman— to whom you are attracted— the last thing you should be thinking of is whether you’re going to get seven to eight hours of sleep!
Superman and Clark Kent… I always wanted to be Superman… Riley always took the cape… It was who we were destined to be, I guess.
Owen, you and I are not men who believe in whimsy or things we can’t prove. We’re practical and realistic. But I can tell you this— that day when I first laid eyes on your mother, I believed that dreams come true. I believed in love at first sight. And I believed in the power of wishing on a star and the possibility of fairy tales.
I like how you engage in the geek talk.
I savored this charming story from beginning to end. Owen and Brooke were an endearing, adorable, and delectably sweet couple. I relished the gentle and considerate nature in how they treated each other, even when they weren’t together. Their relationship developed rapidly with an instant attraction and their blossoming relationship was fun and enjoyable to witness. The storyline was highly eventful and full of feels with occasional bits of steam. Owen was a brilliant astrophysicist who was reserved, overly focused on his scientific field, and generally uncomfortable in social settings. Brooke was a former beauty queen/cheerleader/mean girl with a scary smart yet nerdy brother whom she had tormented most of her life - until he was no longer around. Brooke and Owen had both reached a crossroads in their lives, both grieving past and present losses and dealing with unusual family dynamics and I adored how they supported, respected, and comforted each other. The writing was engaging, entertaining and emotive, and was deftly laced together with thoughtful insightfulness that squeezed my heart and may have stung my eyes a few times as well. A Sky Full Of Stars is not only my favorite of the series but is also my favorite Samantha Chase book to date. Owen is definitely the cream of the crop as he is not only the best and the brightest but also the sweetest of the entire Shaughnessy clan.
Owen Shaughnessy is a brilliant young man. Because of his intelligence his struggles with interacting with others outside of his family. There is a special place in my heart of Owen.
Brooke Matthews is the niece of Howard, Owen's mentor. She is an artist that loves to paint the night sky. Howard feels that she can assist Owen on an upcoming trip he is leading to study a meteor shower and to also meet her want to paint the night sky.
This is a true story of opposites attract. They struggle in their relationship because of their insecurities but they also gain more confidence as individuals because of the others' support. This is a real heartwarmining story.
What I really liked about this story is that we get to revisit and catch up with the other Shaughnessy's and their significant others. We also get examples of how the 'twin' connection (almost like telepathy) works between Riley and Owen. Being a twin myself I found that very enlightening as being a twin myself my twin and I have experienced some of those type situations too. That made me connect more with the story.
I'm really looking forward to revisiting with the Shaughnessy's in the future. Love this family!
Brainy Professor Owen Shaughnessy is falling in love with Brooke, a beautiful woman, who was once the type of girl who had tortured him in school. He couldn’t help but wonder, why a woman like Brooke was flirting with him? Was he just another project for her to try and fix? And what would happen to him when she was finished with him? His heart would break into a thousand pieces, that’s what.
Brooke did tease socially awkward guys in high school, like Owen Shaughnessy. She was the mean popular girl back then, but not anymore. Regret was a terrible thing to live with, Brooke knew because she felt its painful sting every day of her life.
This book is a beautifully crafted story with natural dialogue, raw emotion, and fully developed characters. I loved every page of this, superbly written, emotionally charged character-driven novel. Highly recommended.
Thank you, Sourcebooks-Casablanca and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
