What's Crossed by the Stars got that you need?

✨ Protective Hero 🌺 Determined Heroine 🌠Star-crossed lovers 💕 Heart-stopping devotion 🔥 Sexy slow burn

Rated a 10/10 by The BookLife Prize from Publisher's Weekly, this heartfelt, star-crossed HEA has a protective French billionaire, a daring woman he’s forced to deny, and a threat they never saw coming!

“We’re worth fighting for. A life full of love will always be worth it.”

Dax Armaud has spent the last decade haunted by feelings for the one woman he can never be with. Family secrets mean just being seen with a Mori is a dangerous dance let alone dating one. But a desperate call sends him spinning back into Jada’s life, and now he can’t walk away without leaving half his soul behind.

For years, Jada Mori fought the ties to her father’s world while healing a broken heart. She thought she’d finally escaped both until a shadow creeps out of her past seeking retribution. When Dax shows up trying to protect her, she’s determined to send him away before her mistakes destroy them.

Forced into hiding, the tantalizing desire hovering between them refuses to be ignored, and in the end, they’ll have to decide what matters most―family allegiances or a chance at a forever after.

Inspired by Imelda May’s “Falling in Love with You Again,” comes an emotional, second-chance romance with deep, relatable characters and a story you might never forget.


The advanced reviewers have sort of made me weepy (I know this is a normal occurrence for me, but it’s still true). Here are some of the things they’ve been saying:

Five stars is not nearly enough for this book! I've read many of LJ Evans's books and loved them, but this one is hands-down my favorite.

―Goodreads Review

Heart-pounding action and steam that sizzles up from the pages. Delightfully delicious!

―Michelle the PA

Will capture your heart and hold onto it.

―BookBub Review

Jada stole my heart. I didn't think I could love her. Boy! Was I wrong.

―Goodreads Review

Dax might just be my new favorite guy!

―Goodreads Review

This book is everything!! It has reminded me why I love LJ Evans' books so much! The attention to detail, the beautiful prose, the use of the song lyrics… all of it transports the reader to another place.

―Goodreads Review

What a rollercoaster of a ride!

―Goodreads Review


On this very important day, Dax is definitely dressed to the hilts in a suit that his father designed, and Jada is sure to have on a dress and her famous 4-inch stilettos in royal blue. Me, the author? I’m still in yoga pants and a T-shirt. I love the IDEA of being dressed up, but I’ll barely survive the day without trying to be all fancy on top of it. You can check out my complete lack of cool in the LIVE I’ll be doing in LJ’s Music and Stories at 7:30 pm EST, if you want to join me.

Or you can also come check me and my author friends out as we post in the Do Not Disturb Book Club this afternoon.


BTW, I’ve been sharing some intense and swoony teasers, have you missed them? Which one do you like the best?


Okay, I’ve got to run and make sure that everything for Jada and Dax’s release is going smoothly, but will you do me a favor? Will you tell me if you read Crossed by the Stars? Because I realllllly want to know what you think of Jada and Dax!

Oh, by the way, if you want a chance at a signed paperback and/or hardback of Unmasked Dreams and Crossed by the Stars, you should totally join my FaceBook group, LJ’s Music and Stories, because I’m giving some away in there today. Plus, this group is full of the nicest, sweetest, most supportive human beings on the internet. I’m not kidding. Come find out for yourself!

Have a beautiful weekend full of books, love, and happiness!
