STARR FALL by Kim Briggs **Review**




On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love. 

Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without. 

When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment. 

Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit. 

By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available. 

What People Are Saying About Starr Fall.... 
"I was swept up in Kim Briggs' whirlwind of secrets, swoon, and adventure from page one. Beautifully writing combined with a smart, driven protagonist made this a book I couldn't put down.” —Isabel Bandeira, Author of Bookishly Ever After (Jan 2016) and Dramatically Ever After (June 2017) 

As the opener in what promises to be a thrilling series, Starr Fall hits the ground running and hits the water swimming. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough as Starr went from a super-achieving but otherwise pretty normal high school junior to a girl on the run from a shady, powerful government (maybe) agency and a deep, dark conspiracy we only see in glimpses. And why has the weird kid from school suddenly become her ultra-hot sidekick, with a connection between them that literally gives off sparks? He’s a lot more than he seems. Every answer raises another question as the reader ricochets between the threat level outside the remote cabin and the heat level inside it. Briggs knows how to crank up both kinds of tension, in the best possible way. Book two can’t come soon enough for this reader! -- Liz Coley, author of the award winning, internationally best-selling Pretty Girl-13 





4 STARRS

Starr is just a student who hopes to pass in the leadership exam, but her entire life changes when the Organization decides that she's the perfect person to recruit as assassin. Starr will do anything possible to escape this cruel destiny and Christian, her moody classmate will be on her side in this journey.

Meanwhile, apart from the Organization, the heroine will have to face with more obstacles and she will need to take serious decisions that will affect not only her, but those around her. With a different Christian than she was used to at school, feelings will surface and these decisions will affect them more than she ever thought.


I’m supposed to go to college. I’m supposed to go into politics someday. That’s the plan. Not this.



I have to admit that what draw me into this book initially was the cover. I mean it's gorgeous, right? But because I have been burnt by pretty covers, I also read the synopsis before I decided that I indeed wanted to read this one. Thankfully, it was a wise decision, because this is a great story, with really interesting characters and a fascinating plot! This book makes you crave for more and it's seriously addicting.

I did have a few issues, like the hero and the heroine who seemed at the first chapters of the book entirely different characters than the continuation. They both seemed like intense characters, I thought the heroine would be a spoiled brat and the hero a moody, broody one. Well, surprise me colour, but they turned out to be entirely different afterwards and it's not just a matter of progress, because I would accept this easier, it just seemed like a very sudden change to me. And I'm still having a serious question about a scene, where it seems like a loophole or just unexplainable, but I'm hoping that it will be answered somehow in the next books of the series. It may be minor, but it irks me, because I need to know how this happened.


The Organization is after me, and clearly, they aren’t afraid to kill people to get to me, but I can’t get Christian out of my head.



Other than that, I really liked the author's writing, the scenery that was described in the book, the suspense, the mystery and I definitely need more. Looking forward to reading the next books and finding out how this story continues!
