Product Description

*This is not a stand-alone novel. This is the first book in the New Adult duet, Crossing Stars.*

*Steal the Moon (Crossing Stars Duet, Book2), the final book in the Crossing Stars Duet, will release January 2017*

~What would you risk for love? Would you cross the stars? Steal the moon?
Ella’s an American in a foreign land. Raj is Jordanian royalty. Fate has brought them together and their diverse worlds are about to collide.~

A year shy of graduating from Georgetown University, Ella Wallace feels like she's losing direction. Having carved her own path through life, rejecting her family’s elitist influences, the last thing she wants is to waste time and prove her parents right. A happenstance summer-long program abroad offers the perfect opportunity to immerse herself in volunteer work, finding richness in family and purpose she has never experienced before.

Prince Rajaa bin Ammaar is returning home to Jordan from Georgetown University. His intent is to spearhead a refugee program meant to bring peace to his country. Amidst threats of civil war and revolt, Raj stands for his convictions, even when they challenge his family and the very culture he is preordained to uphold.

 A chance encounter at a crowded party in D.C. brought Ella and Raj together for one fleeting moment –never expected to meet again. That is until their opposing worlds collide in Jordan. With the Syrian refugee program as their reuniting bond, they must cross the stars and defy their clashing cultures to protect a forbidden love that crosses the ill-fated stars. And their fight for their love could become deadly.

 Prepare yourself for a  journey both geographically and culturally into the turbulent Middle East where Ella and Raj’s clashing fates bring forth a storm of forbidden love, hatred, deceit, scandal, war, suspense, and the timeless battle to defy what is written in the stars.
Reminiscent of the timeless Shakespearean tale of Romeo and Juliet, Raj and Ella's star-crossed passionate fight for the deep love they share will have you reading each twist and turn in this duet with bated breath.  

**This book is intended for readers 18 and older due to explicit content.**

This was my first time reading anything by Venessa Kimball and I must that I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet story .This story caught my attend right from the very beginning right to the very end and left me wanting more. This is very intensity love story and it about Ella and Rajaa who just happens to the prince of Jordan ,and he's the second oldest son of the King. Ella is the daughter of a politician who was raised as a debutante most that relate to of the expectations that parents put on their children to do better ,I really loved how Ella walked away from it all the money and what they expected of her.She did it all on her own to fine her own path in life. Rajaa has no claims on the thorne unless it's given to him by his father .He's more of a ruler or heir then is oldest brother ever has been. He's a person who cares for the people and he won't give in to anybody and he understands what is required of him. But when he spots Ella he knows that she could be his whole world ,and he then realizes that she's the one that he really wants. Venessa Kimball has given us amazing character that were so well written and play off which other so smoothly and the storyline is also flows smoothly and it will carry you away on a magic carpet .I could go on and tell you so much more about this touching story ,but that would spoil it for you. I highly recommend that you read this touching story ,because you won't be disappointed.

I picked up this book hoping for a passionate, forbidden romance that burned up the pages from chapter 1 set in a world of conflict and danger. And while I got the danger and political conflict, it took me a while to get the romance.

In fact, the romance doesn't begin until the 50% mark, much, much later than I anticipated and wanted. However, I still pressed forward because I was intrigued by the setting and the growth of the characters.

The first half of the book focuses on setting Ella and Raj up as individual characters. It does a great job of setting up the conflict and hurdles they have to face in the second half of the novel. It's a very long exposition--in fact almost too long--but I really enjoyed the world it is set in so I didn't mind too much.

The romance itself is a little too "love at first sight" for me though I understand its purpose in that delivery (the idea of fate). I just wanted it to be established more, not some quick ignition that burns immediately.

I'm really curious to see how everything plays out so I will be picking up the second book when it comes out.

*received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*


*cough* This is the second book I've read with settings in the area of the Middle East (first one was Kite Runner) and this was really interesting! It's two people with their own rich problems, expectations and set responsibilities to uphold the family honor. Doing what you're told vs doing what's best for yourself. Their love was intriguing for me, especially when they didn't even really talk until well after a few chapters. The story built them up for me, showing me their worlds while teasing me with their glances of happening to be in the same place (I know it was you Fate) and- geez, just wow!

I fell in love with this because I have a soft spot for when it comes to volunteering, and El goes to help the Syrian refugees, a serious problem that I've all but heard about on the news this past year. It gave me a bit of guilty pleasure to see her do something for the kids who suffer through war and death. I fell harder and faster with every class she had with the little ones. Add that to her attraction to Raj? *whistles*

Their meeting was a bit fast for me, but I could understand why Raj would feel the way he did, especially after all the coincidences they'd had before finally meeting in Jordan. I love fated love. *sighs* Their relationship was fun and exciting with the secrecy and intensity. It was funny to see how much some of El's cursing aggravated him haha. I also loved her host family! Won't say much about it for spoilers sake, but I LOVED the sense of their culture I got from this, and the clear sense that they're good people. Loved the emphasis on there being good people no matter the race/belief/religion/status, btw.
