When we were sea and stars:


James and Rob’s chemistry is palpable and so enticing. Every scene where they’re together is on fire and when they bond and show their soft side and hidden layers, I swear I see stars! I’d also like to highlight the setting. Since the author is Italian, the cultural aspects of South Italy, as well as the North/South banter are on point and made me immerse in that scenery.

[Rob and James’] love is built upon shareed silences, trust, and a willingness to see beyond what the other seems to be. Their story isn’t free of rough patches, and there were a few moments in which I had to take a moment to take deep breaths. The final pages were particularly emotion-provoking, and had me crying all the good tears!

When We Were Sea and Stars is a stunning and captivating love story. It played like a foreign language film in my head, with its dramatic Mediterranean scenery, the colorful residents of a small town in Southern Italy, and an inside look at daily life through the eyes of Italian author, Elen Chase. But it’s the love story that is so achingly beautiful it brought me to tears. James and Roberto are so lovely together it imprinted my heart.
