Written in the Stars: A Novel | Alexandria Bellefleur
In her debut with nods to Bridget Jones and Pride and Prejudice, Alexandria Bellefleur delivers a charming #ownvoices queer rom-com about a free-spirited social media astrologer who agrees to fake a relationship with an uptight actuary until New Years Evewith results not even the stars could predict! After a disastrous blind date, Darcy Lowell is desperate to stop her well-meaning brother from playing matchmaker ever again. Loveand the inevitable heartbreakis the last thing she wants. So she fibs and says her latest set up was a success. Darcy doesnt expect her lie to bite her in the ass. Elle Jones, one of the astrologers behind the popular Twitter account, Oh My Stars, dreams of finding her soul mate. But she knows it is most assuredly not Darcy... a no-nonsense stick-in-the-mud, who is way too analytical, punctual, and skeptical for someone as free-spirited as Elle. When Darcys brotherand Elle's new business partnerexpresses how happy he is that they hit it off, Elle is baffled. Was Darcy on the same date? Because... awkward. When Darcy begs Elle to play along, she agrees to pretend theyre dating to save face. But with a few conditions: Darcy must help Elle navigate her own overbearing family over the holidays and their arrangement expires on New Years Eve. The last thing they expect is to develop real feelings during a fake relationship. But maybe opposites can attract when true love is written in the stars?

This was a quality contemporary romance about two women who begin with a fake dating set up that grows into more. It was just a fairly typical setup, so I was wavering at borderline pick, but the declaration at the end was excellent. 4⭐️
Another #roll100 read done & #bookspinbingo Bingo!

Enjoyed! Loved the nods to Pride & Prejudice, the pop culture references, and the astrology element. A believable #lgbtqia romance with a bit of steam, relatable characters, and lots of heart!

Super enjoyed this book! Based in Seattle, Elle is a “quirky” twenty-something who runs an astrology business with her best friend and roommate, Margot. Elle gets set up on a blind date with her quasi-worker, Brendon‘s older, uptight sister, Darcy. As total opposites, they have a horrible, chaotic first date, but decide to “fake” a relationship to get their families off their backs. But soon they‘re not faking it anymore...

Pretty cute. If you're looking for something fluffy with some heartache and steamy elements, you'll probably enjoy this romcomin which two very different women work on not falling in love. You may especially enjoy it if you're interested in astrology. I didn't enjoy the undertone of aphobia with Darcy's bro forcing her into dates and insisting she needed to be seeing someone. #LGBTQ #romcom

Thanks for the tag, @coffees !
1. Keep up on reviews 😏 also ~200 reads (because Storygraph and Goodreads count comic issues and picture books too)
2. Intangible? It hasn't happened yet!
3. I am enjoying this book well enough. I don't love romantic comedy, and I don't like the undertones of aphobia, but it's an entertaining read so far.

I enjoyed reading this, more than I thought I would. This made me feel good because this was so heartwarming cute story.

I liked characters, there were even nice secondary characters in the story. Banter in this book made me smile! ( #Adventathon )

This was really light & cozy read, even though the plot was everything else than unique.

Read this book!!! Read this book now!!! Buy it, download it, borrow it, steal…. Wait don‘t steal it, that is wrong, but seriously find this book and read it!!! It is a super cute romcom loosely based on Pride and Prejudice. I fell in love with the characters from the first words to the last. It all started with a disaster date, which led to a lie, which led to a deal, which led to…. You will have to read it to find out!!

What a fabulous reading month June was! I read 45 books, some fun rereads of favorites like King of Scars, Percy Jackson and The Golden Compass.

Some big stand outs were Written in the Stars, Patience & Esther, Little & Lion, Tipping the Velvet, and Malice. So many great books read though! See any faves?

⭐️⭐️✨
Book #27: Well, it wasn‘t terrible. I liked it because it was queer, and I love a good gay romance. But I didn‘t relate too much to the characters in other ways (not necessary, and personal to everyone of course). I found the characters and relationships to be... nonplussing. But it‘s definitely better than it‘s straight counterpart, so still good for me 🔮🫀✨

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was an okay romcom. It was promoted as a Pride and Prejudice adaptation but it definitely was not. But the characters were relatable and there were some cute date night scenes. This was #bookspinbingo No. 20 and #tbrdeckofcards 8♦️ which was Genre:Romance.

I‘m not sure why this is being compared to P&P? It‘s a cute romance, although the fake romance part was over way too quickly and the final conflict was sooooo stupid.

Darcy and Elle went on a disastrous blind date. The next day, Darcy asked Elle to be her fake gf to get Darcy's brother (who also happens to work with Elle) off her back. Darcy and Elle start fake dating and surprise, surprise, they fall in love. It's got all the cheesy puns and romance cliques, but somehow it was sweet.

When social media astrologer Elle meets actuary Darcy, sparks fly - igniting a hot mess. One thing leads to another and the two find themselves in a fake relationship heading into the holidays. But could it be that the stars have a plan for these two? This hot mess might just create a forever flame.

Like I have said in the past I am a sucker for fake dating. Elle and Darcy had a first date disaster. But when Darcy wants to get her family off her back about dating someone she tells them she just met someone Elle. They decide to fake date through the holidays. But what will happen when they start to realize they are starting to have feeling for each other. I can‘t wait to read Darcy‘s brother Braden‘s book later this year!

I really enjoyed the characters in this book. I feel as though I truly got to know them and they became my friends. I wanted a little more from the ending but I think that‘s because I wasn‘t ready for their story to end and I want to know even more about their future. ❤️

A cute, sexy contemporary romance about a messy, bi, boxed wine drinking social media astrologer and an uptight $56 dollar a glass chardonnay drinking lesbian actuary with trust issues. A very loose Pride and Prejudice retelling, plus fake relationship! The book could have used another copy edit especially to add variety between the two sex scenes. I also wanted a more drawn out ending. Last but certainly not least: this book is hopelessly white.

Too often mainstream wlw romances are kind of desexualized, and I love how sexy the attraction between Darcy and Elle in this book is already. ("For a moment, Darcy wondered what Elle would look like, sweat dripping down that bare expanse of neck, her back bowing against Darcy's sheets.") ???

Elle and Darcy‘s first date is a disaster but they agree to fake date through the holidays to get their families off their backs for various reasons. I had a rough start with this one because my first impression of Darcy wasn‘t great and so like Elle‘s best friend I was wary of her and she had to win me over. There are some really sweet moments and some really sexy ones though. In the end, I enjoyed this romcom and will pick up Brendon‘s story ⬇️

Two wildly incompatible women are set up on a disaster of a blind date only to find themselves in a fake relationship for the holidays. I don't really like reading romance novels, but I wanted to pick this one up because it focuses on two women falling in love. There's amazing depictions of female friendships, and I love women supporting women. https://onthebl.org/2020/12/02/lgbtq-romance-in-written-in-the-stars-by-alexandr...
