Lost In Starlight By Sherry Soule Dream Cast and Review

“Author Sherry Soule’s Dream Cast”
Today bestselling author, Sherry Soule has some exciting news to share with us! She will be publishing a brand new Upper YA / Sci-Fi romance series: the “Starlight Saga” with scorching-hot character chemistry, exciting suspense, and epic romance on June 26, 2014. To help promote this interstellar love story, “LOST IN STARLIGHT,” Sherry is doing this guest post to share the news with fellow booklovers. So without further ado here are Sherry’s top actor picks...

For my tough heroine, Sloane Masterson, I think this lovely and brilliant actress: Lucy Hale would be perfect. Tough talking, girl reporter, Sloane is not your typical heroine. She’s a feisty, disarming, and a fiercely independent seventeen-year-old. But she’s not flawlessly beautiful, or super thin, or extremely intelligent like some YA protagonists. Sloane has very real and relatable body issues and insecurities like most teen girls do. She favors the dark-side in clothes and music, loves to watch scary movies, and likes hanging out in graveyards. She uses her wits to cover her emotional scars, and if you can break through her tough exterior, you’ll have a fearless, loyal friend for life.
 For the part of the stoic and brooding, Hayden Lancaster, I think this dynamic actor would be great, Luke Mitchell. At first glance, it seems that eighteen-year-old Hayden has a detached, unemotional exterior, but what lies beneath is a kindhearted individual that will go out of their way to help another. Although he’s self-assured, he does have a tendency to emotionally distance himself from those around him, and this can make Hayden an unpredictable and confusing companion at times.





For Sloane’s best friend, Viola Saks, this remarkable actress would be fantastic: Camilla Belle. Outgoing and feisty, Viola’s a fun-loving spirit girl, who loves to read. Never lacking in optimism, Viola is frequently seen as a crusader for the rights of others and a defender of lost causes. Popularity makes no difference to her as long as she believes in the cause.
For Devin Greenspan, Editor of the school paper, I like this gifted actor best: Ed Westwick. Devin has had a crush on Sloane for years and never gave the hope of one day hooking up with her. But when Hayden becomes her best friend, he feels threatened by the newcomer.

 





Only one actor comes to mind that could portray Hayden’s younger brother, Zach Lancaster, and it is actor, Paul Wesley. Zach and his brother grew up in a close-knit family where outside friends are  discouraged. So when Hayden becomes good friends with Sloane, Zach tries to sabotage the friendship and strongly opposes the relationship.





 For Sloane’s good friends, Tanisha and Raymond, I like both of these talented actors: Erica Hubbard and Daniel Andrew Sharman: Tanisha and Raymond are loyal friends that hang in Sloan’s crew. Tanisha dresses sort of Goth, and she’s really into Wicca and alternative bands. Raymond is more punk rock, and plays the role of the tortured musician to perfection.

 VOLUME ONE: Starlight Saga Is a star-crossed romance worth sacrificing your own life? High school senior Sloane Masterson lives a quiet existence. She has awesome friends, gets excellent grades, and writes a column for the Haven Gazette. But her life goes from dullsville to bizarro when she witnesses mysterious loner Hayden Lancaster performing some freaky superhuman feats. Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, and she’s not above stalking. But one look into Hayden’s remarkable eyes, and she’s crushing hard. Even at the swoonworthy hunk’s insistence that hanging out with girls like Sloane is “off limits” by his strange family, she can’t resist him or wanting to solve the mystery. Things get really complicated when a beautiful alien sets her sights on Hayden—and this devious girl’s not looking for a green card! Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, ├╝ber snobby extraterrestrials, and getting a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating. As their diverse worlds collide and the romantic sparks fly, Sloane must decide if Hayden’s secrets are worth risking her life to protect.

My Thoughts:

Not a huge fan of aliens, I was unsure of this book but knew that I had loved everything else Sherry Soule had written.  I had to give it a chance and am I ever glad that I did.   This is absolutely wonderful book.    Aliens are not of the E.T. type in this story, but definitely are not human.   I enjoyed the aliens very much and would not mind being just friends with one myself.  

Lost in Starlight has everything I look for in a good book, romance, a tad of humor, and intrigue.    Sloane is unique to say the least.  She hangs out in a cemetery to unwind and relax.   Her relationship with Hayden is steamy hot.   I know they are teenagers in high school, but wow the sparks flew between these two.    Hayden knew he had to be the protector and keep Sloane safe from the people in his life that would not accept her and their relationship, but yet he knew that he had to have her in his life in order for it to be complete.   


My issue with this book??  The ending…CLIFFHANGER!  I am hoping and praying that Sherry Soule does not leave me hanging for long and comes out with the next book in this series very quickly.    I have to know what is going to happen with Sloane and Hayden.
