Soon, the hatred between us becomes indifference and then our friendship grows like our time apart was only hours instead of years. So when Evan asks me to pretend to be her boyfriend, I naively assume it’s to repair the rift between our families. But I wasn’t only wrong, I was dead wrong. That glimpse of a future I saw with her is ripped away again just like when we were young. The difference is, now I’m all grown up, and I fight for what I want.

All of her dreams had been put on hold so she could step up for her family. And yet every time we saw her she was happy and helpful and caring and I wanted to steal her away. I loved having Seth as the main character. He had put up with so much teasing from the guys about his profession and taken it all in stride. Everything about him was beautiful. But damn he was so much deeper than I was expecting, which just made me love the way everything played out with him and Evan. This has been such a great series. And I can't wait to see all of the crew get their happily ever after.

    I have been waiting for Seth’s story and it did not disappoint! They were the modern day Romeo and Juliet except they lived happily ever after! Our Star-Crossed Kiss was the fourth book in Piper & Rayne’s Rooftop Crew Series. These do not have to be read in order but I highly recommend checking out the whole gang when you get a chance! Our Star-Crossed Kiss was funny, emotional, and so sweet! Seth wanted his own life away from his family’s bagel shop but unfortunately he was sucked back in.

Our Star-Crossed Kiss was funny, emotional, and so sweet! Seth wanted his own life away from his family’s bagel shop but unfortunately he was sucked back in. When the opportunity to get his parents shop back on track came up, it sounded like the prefect idea. That was until he found out he would have to work with the enemy, but was she really? Evan and Seth used to be best friends but when they were nine, their parents had a falling out. Ever since then, they were to hate each other but did their friendship ever die? A brilliant idea of getting engaged to trick their families into working together again seemed perfect... nothing could go wrong, right? Oh the heartache!! Luckily Piper & Rayne pieced my heart back together with an amazing ending! The banter between these two was perfect! I loved getting to watch them grow, both as friends and more! They were always destined to be together!

From the first to the last chapter, I was hooked on the story that these authors wove, totally invested in Seth and Evan’s story. These two have history, they were best friends until a feud between their father’s broke up their friendship. When they meet again and agree to team up to win a competition, sparks fly and although off to a rocky start, they slowly but surely re ignite their friendship. Complications arise when Evan asks Seth to pretend to be her boyfriend. What happens when feelings become involved? What happens when things are destroyed again? I’ve been waiting for Seth’s story since he first appeared in the series. There were plenty of fun, laugh out loud moments, although having said that there were some emotional parts as well. It was also great to see the other members of The Rooftop Crew make an appearance.

    I have loved every book in the Rooftop Crew series so far, but Seth is my favorite! This modern twist on the Romeo & Juliet trope is fantastic! From the previous books, we know all about the rivalry between The Bagel Place and Andrews Bagels. Now in Our Star-Crossed Kiss, we find out all about the feud that led to the split between Seth's dad and his former partner... a feud that also caused the end of Seth's friendship with Evan, the daughter of the Ericksons.

From the previous books, we know all about the rivalry between The Bagel Place and Andrews Bagels. Now in Our Star-Crossed Kiss, we find out all about the feud that led to the split between Seth's dad and his former partner... a feud that also caused the end of Seth's friendship with Evan, the daughter of the Ericksons. When Seth and Evan both find themselves being partnered together on a reality TV show about local eateries in the neighborhood, they agree to a fake engagement in order to try to smooth over the family feud and get both of their fathers on board. As these things go... before long, the lines between what's fake and what's real become blurred. There is a great through-line in this story as Seth and Evan start out hating one another because they've been conditioned to as a result of their dads' feud, to rekindling a friendship and eventually falling in love. There's a plot twist with the TV show that leads to a make-or-break moment between them as a real couple, and Seth ends up spectacularly word-vomiting in a drunken rant that had my heart breaking for him and cringing all at the same time. I really got every nuance with both characters. How Evan felt stuck in her life due to her family's situation and her dad's health. How Seth always felt second-best in everything in life because of his drug addict brother. How they both liked each other in high school but felt they couldn't do anything about it. How their moms always knew that Seth and Evan were destined to be together. I loved it all! I've really enjoyed every book in this series so far, but Our Star-Crossed Kiss is my favorite yet! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

    While I have enjoyed every book in this series to date, I wasn't sure how I would like Seth and Evan's story and was a little hesitant. They were childhood friends whose parents had such a huge falling out that they weren't allowed to be friends anymore. To sum it up, it's a friends to enemies to fale relationship to lovers trope.

Got it? I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this one! It may even be my favorite of the series to date. There were so many things that are revealed in this story that I didn't see coming. Where I was expecting a cute, fun romance these extra details made it a deeper, heartfelt read. (With lots of cute, fun moments!) I think the WAY the story was written also had such a huge impact. The writing had me feeling as if I was right there and I could enjoy the highs but also feel the turmoil right along with these two. While I've enjoyed this series as a whole, THIS is the one I would recommend out of all of them to date for someone to read. They are all great and are interconnected, but there was just something that made me connect and fall in love to this one the most.

    Okay Seth was right he is my new favourite. There was just something about him I couldn’t help but fall in love with his character. His humour had me giggling like crazy, but there was more to him than just being the funny man of the group. If you don’t fall in love with him by the end of chapter one than I don’t know about you! Evan was different than I was expecting. I knew their story was going to be a good one especially after all that tension in past books in the series. The banter, the sex Okay Seth was right he is my new favourite. There was just something about him I couldn’t help but fall in love with his character. His humour had me giggling like crazy, but there was more to him than just being the funny man of the group. If you don’t fall in love with him by the end of chapter one than I don’t know about you! Evan was different than I was expecting. I knew their story was going to be a good one especially after all that tension in past books in the series. The banter, the sexual chemistry & best of the friendship was what made this book for me. Although the family feud was so much more than I was expecting as well. Another amazing read by the Piper Rayne duo. I can’t wait for Knox’s (love his name)book. I received an arc of this book in return for an honest review.

I think the fact that they were once best friends turned enemies is what intrigued me the most.

I think next to Dylan and Riann, this was the couple that I was really looking forward to. I think the fact that they were once best friends turned enemies is what intrigued me the most. There is so much animosity between their families and while these two appear to hate each, I think we all know that it is just the opposite for these star-crossed lovers. Evan has given up her dreams and basically any life she had to help her family run their bagel store. It’s not where she saw herself at 29 years old, but her family means everything and right now they need her help. Seth is somewhat in the same position as Evan. While he runs his own boudoir photographer business, he is also involved in his family business as well because of his brother. While his dream is to become a photographer, taking pictures of half-naked woman is not exactly what his plan was. When an opportunity presents itself for both bagel shops to be on TV, Seth and Evan come together and form a plan, one that will hopefully help both shops and at the same time allow these two to step away from the family business and do what they want to do. But is faking an engagement really going to help out their parents pr will it just cause a broken heart in the end? Evan appears to hate Seth just as much as he hates her. But that “hate” stems from the feud between their parents. And I think from the beginning you could see that these two had anything but hate for each other. They were once the best of friends, forced apart by their parents. Evan may not want to get up early every morning to make bagels but regardless, she seems to handle it well. She kind, sweet and just that type of heroine that you love. Seth is protective, sexy, fun and witty. But there is so much more to him, and I loved that Piper and Rayne explored that deeper side to him. He uses humor to push aside his emotions and trust me when you peel back those layers and see the more emotional side of Seth, you will fall for him even more. I personally loved his sexy and witty banter. It is who he is and one of the many reasons for loving him. Our Star-Crossed Kiss was perfectly written, and filled with humor, hotness and some emotional moments as well. The rooftop gang is very much a part of this book. I love seeing this group of friends come together, it is nothing but fun times. So much so that you feel a part of their inner circle. Seth and Evan were so good together. You felt their connection from the start. And regardless of how they were supposed to feel towards each other, you knew that the connection they had long ago was still there and was now more than just feelings of friendship. They just both had a hard time admitting it for fear that it wasn’t reciprocated. I love this series. And if you love it as much as I do, you will love Seth and Evan together. I cannot wait for Knox’s story!!

    I've been waiting for this couple to get together, and this light, almost sweet, story was worth the wait. I definitely enjoyed the first half a lot more than the second (it was missing the swoon), but it's a great addition to the series and one of my favorites so far. These two have been raised to "hate" each other, so their relationship seems doomed from the start. But they're both genuinely good people with plenty of history, so they've got a more solid foundation than anyone would've anticip I've been waiting for this couple to get together, and this light, almost sweet, story was worth the wait. I definitely enjoyed the first half a lot more than the second (it was missing the swoon), but it's a great addition to the series and one of my favorites so far. These two have been raised to "hate" each other, so their relationship seems doomed from the start. But they're both genuinely good people with plenty of history, so they've got a more solid foundation than anyone would've anticipated. It's light and sexy throughout, with minimal angst and just the kind of vibe that I love reading from this writing duo. Despite being part of a series, this will read as standalone - though this group of friends stick their noses in each other's business, so reading them in order will enhance the experience. The story follows Seth, a photographer who has tried to distance himself from the family bagel business. Seth gets pulled back in when the bagel shop enters a reality TV competition and their biggest rival is another bagel shop run by the family's former friends. Back when they were kids, Seth and Evan (heroine) used to be close friends, but twenty years of feuding have made them closer to enemies. When teaming up to win the competition seems like the best option, these two strike up an alliance that shakes things up in a big way. I've really liked Seth throughout the series and was looking forward to reading his story. He's such a good guy, and he's seemed to have a crush on Evan for a long, long time. So I was kinda surprised to discover that wasn't a real element to this story. Yes, he protects her even when they're not friends, but this is very much missing the swoony element I was looking forward to reading. That's the reason this otherwise light, fun read doesn't earn a full 5 stars from me - just when I thought things were going to take a turn for the romantic, they took a turn for the sexual instead. The whole thing is a little light on the emotional connection. It's still a very solid read and one of my favorites in the series, but I wanted more of a build in intimacy. Seth makes a great hero and I loved the shared history between them, so that means the book was still a winner. I'm looking forward to more of The Rooftop Crew, especially Jax's story. I received a free copy via Wildfire Marketing and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sexy forbidden-ish romance.

Our Star-Crossed Kiss is book #4 is The Rooftop Crew Series by Piper Rayne and it is my favourite in the series thus far. Piper Rayne made me fall HARD for Seth and Evan! Of course as always the book is full of their signature humour but there was also a very sweet emotional side to this book that I was not expecting. The story line was creative and gave me modern day Romeo and Juliet vibes. The Ericksons and Andrews are rival families. Each own a bagel shop in town and their businesses are highly competitive. Seth is the absolute star of this book. #sethismyfav I could not get enough of his witty banter and jokes. He is the friend in the group that is always the life of the party and puts everyone in good mood the moment he enters a room. His charm is intoxicating and addicting. He is also sweet and hardworking and a talented photographer. I loved Evan just as much as Seth. Thinking back to when I was reading Rival Roomies and how any mention of Evan Seth would react and I was eager to get to know them more. What made this such a fun read was the moment that Seth and Evan decide to disguise themselves in a fake relationship in order to win their families a spot on a popular cooking show on the Food Channel. The chemistry between Seth and Evan is undeniable. The two have had a thing for one another much longer than either are willing to admit and I loved the development of their relationship. One thing that I love about this series is the comrade between all the friends. The Rooftop Crew are a family themselves and accept newcomers as their own. There is never a dull moment and they live to give each other a hard time but deep down it’s in a loving way as family does. This book has it all and was everything I needed. It is filled with crazy family drama and hilarious banter. The story is a sweet and steamy rom-com with a ton feels and is a must read in the series. I cannot wait for more. Knox’s book is next in the The Do-Over. Advanced reader copy received in exchange of an honest review.

This friend group is ridiculously entertaining and have made for one of the best group friend series that I have read! Although this book can most certainly be read all on its own, this group is involved with each other, and not just in the abstract, so it would be much more enjoyable for you if you read these from the beginning!

Evan is dedicated to her family and the business her parents own, at the expense of her own dreams. She is strong, takes no nonsense and will always defend the ones she loves! I loved catching up with the rest of the rooftop crew and after that sneak peak can not wait for Knox's book.

    #sethismyfav and that‘s the truth! I‘ve been waiting for Seth‘s story since book one! His humour and characterism is just amazing and it sucked me in right away! But his story takes the cake! It was so good I devoured it in a few hours. Seth and Evan have this chemistry that‘s just unstoppable.

After watching Evan from a distance, Seth is finally going head-to-head with her for a cooking reality show. Except, in order for this to work, they have to join forces and when things escalate into a fake relationship, things spiral out of control. Or does it? Review: Before we go any further, let’s make it clear: #SethIsMyFave. Even without his request, I would have done that. Seth is just….*chef’s kiss* But I digress. What happens when you bring the Montagues and Capulets into modern day New York City? This glorious book that follows two estranged families that were once best friends and shared a business. The Rooftop Crew series by Piper Rayne is just so much fun. It has the most incredible group of friends who live such normal and fun lives that you can’t help but want to be a part of their world. The fourth book in the series is just as hilarious, entertaining and sexy as the others. The friends are up to more shenanigans and more crazy plots to take over the world, but all the while, Seth and Evan are just absolute perfection. “And just like that, the trust I had when we were nine years old returns. It’s almost as if no time passed and the twenty years apart was just a blink. Except that the small boy with long skinny legs and big feet has grown into a sexy man.” The Erickson and Andrews families were once extremely close. They ran a bagel store together and then because of a falling out, they went their separate ways to start their own bagel shops. Petty old men and all that. So now in Clifton Heights, residents can choose between The Bagel Place or Andrews Bagels. And by making your choice, you’re officially stuck with that, because that’s just the line you’ve drawn in the sand. Seth and Evan, the kids of these two families grew up together and maybe even had secret feelings for each other, but before anything could happen, their parents ripped them away from each other. So now, because their families are in this silent war, they are too. A food contest on television brings Seth and Evan back together under one roof. And while their respective bagel shops are doing very well, it’s clear that they would do better if they were together. So Evan and Seth strike a deal - pretend to be in a relationship so that they can distract their parents from what they’re really doing. The plan all along is to actually combine the bagels from one shop with the cream cheese of the other, because that’s just the best combination on the planet. Except, the fake relationship becomes a fake engagement and it just keeps snowballing from there. Their families are furious, their fathers don’t believe them (and keep waiting for them to trip up and make a mistake) and oh boy, there’s just so much more drama with these two families that you have to uncover! “Then my mind wanders to Evan and how even though we’ve only been in this charade for a short time, I feel as if I can hardly remember a time when she wasn’t in my life.” I love Seth. I have genuinely loved him since the first book (when we meet Blanca and Ethan) and he’s so entertaining. He’s a riot, not gonna lie. While Seth is all jokes and charm and flirtatious remarks, he knows that he’s not doing what he really wants to do out of life and that his parents are secretly disappointed in him because he doesn’t want to take over the family business. But all said and done, when his parents need him, he’s there without fail. Seth wants to follow his dreams, but instead he settles for what he can do - which is boudoir photography. He’s such a wonderful created and written character and to have him get a whole book just makes my heart so happy. Evan Erickson! While Seth is all humour and charm, Evan is more serious. She’s determined to get out of the family business and follow her own dreams. Evan knows that she has to help out with everyone at home and she’s taking on more responsibility than she should, but she can’t help herself, it’s just the way she’s wired. I love how family oriented she is and how everything is always about putting her family first, but at the same time, I kept waiting for her to break out of that routine and do something for herself. Something that she would truly get to enjoy. “I meant that kiss, Evan. That kiss was so unreal, and it’s all I’ve been able to think about since.” “Man, Seth Andrews gives the best kisses. Kisses that change your whole perspective on something.” Piper Rayne is slowly rising to the top of my favourite authors list. As another epic duo (like Max Monroe and Christina Lauren), they create such wonderful and interesting characters. None of the characters in this series are alike and each of them have such stark personalities that make them so interesting. And they took a trope that I’ve had such bad experiences with (fake relationship/fake engagement) and made it so much fun. Seth and Evan are an incredible match and to watch them go through the motions of avoiding addressing their feelings to dealing with in the most complicated fashion just makes it that much more fun. Some of my favourite scenes are when all of the friends are together. They play the newlywed game and it is the most entertaining thing on the planet. Prepare to giggle and laugh and tear up a few times. Seth, Evan, their families and all the supporting characters will provide you with enough and more entertainment, so brace yourself for all the feels!

This duo is always on my go-to authors, because their books always bring me so much happiness, love and it’s a lot of fun, and this one I might even go to the length of saying it’s my favorite of the Rooftop Crew series. And that’s not an easy feat because the three first books of the series are super amazing. Evan and Seth’s families have known each other since forever and even had a bagel shop together, until their dads got in a business fight and their families went on their separate ways. So many years later, Evan is taking care of The Bagel Place but from the start you see that it’s not her dream. And then we have my sweat and amazing Seth, he is the momma’s boy, and would do a lot to help his family in the Andrews Bagel Company even if took another route as a boudoir photographer. But when an opportunity arises for her to possibly move on from her family business, she has to ask for help from her family enemy and she goes straight to Seth. So now that they are faking being fiancées, I could see so clearly how their have so many chemistry and could be the real deal! It was like they were always friends of each other, and none of the rivalry ever existed. I also loved how his friends instantly were good to her. Of course something had to go wrong and let me tell you, heartbroken Seth was so sad and for a moment I was really mad with the authors for making him go through all of that. Damn it! But of course they would give a happy ending for them and not go on the real Romeo and Juliet route. This book, as the whole series, is another rom-com must read.

This story is everything I love about Piper Rayne's writing. Captivating and adorable characters. Lovable and intriguing story line. And a perfect mix of heat and sweetness. Evan and Seth were childhood friends when their families ran the bagel place in Cliffton Heights together. And then came the great rift. The families became sworn enemies and business competitors. Now a famous tv show is running a contest for all the food business to get featured in tv. Evan's store has the best cream cheese and Seth's store has the best bagel. And none of them want to run bagel stores. So they have to join forces, pretend to be engaged and make their parents agreeable to a joint business plan. But fake doesn't stay so for long. Ok Seth I am with you. #Sethisthebest. This guy..oh man this guy. He is all flirty fun and jokes outside but inside he has so much burden. He feels he is disappointing his parents by wanting to continue as a photographer. He feels guilty and a bit grievance. He and Evan may be enemies but he is so protective of her from the very beginning. I am so in love with this charming, gorgeous, sweet and sexy man. Evan is also stuck in her life because she had to forget her dreams to take care of her family and business. She has a lot of grit and will power to carry on everyday. I love her dedication to her family and also how she supports Seth in every situation. They have an amazing chemistry. Old rivalry may have separated them for years but as soon as they decided to tackle the hurdle together, it was like no time has passed at all. They are partner in crimes. They are soulmates. They have this magnetic pull and a trusting bond that survived all tests. It was a bit spicy, a lot swoony, a bit angsty and a whole lot of feels. They had lots of ups and downs but it just made everything interesting and kept me on my toes. Also I loved meeting the whole Rooftop Crew. They make me laugh so hard! Our Star-Crossed Kiss by Piper Rayne was a hot and sweet treat. My heart is full of feels. It's a delicious treat of happy, steamy and hearfelt emotions. I cannot get enough of this world.

Even though I knew drama was coming, I think the way it happened was so perfect for the story and not over the top. Piper Rayne wrote this journey in the perfect way. Seth was always the funny character in the first few books, and getting his backstory of why he’s always the comedic relief really adds to him as a male lead. I did kind of want to smack some sense into him, because it took him so damn long to figure out his feelings. BUT once he knew, he knew. And I love nothing better than a man determined to get his lady! Plus, the little flashbacks to when they were younger were so perfect. I fell in love with them even more as I learned about their friendship as children. Evan is such a wonderful character. She’s so very strong and caring. The way she puts everyone in her family first just shows what a considerate person she is. I did kind of wonder how she even ended up with Brock in the first place, because they don’t match up at all in my mind. Luckily it does get explained, and it made me that much more happy that she ended up with Seth. Her and Seth are just so perfect for each other! Something I really do love about the series in general is the Rooftop crew itself. This group of friends is just so awesome. Each character brings so much to the group and each story. I love seeing the couples we already know about and the couples that are coming in the rest of the series, because they’re just so fun. The Newlywed Game scene is HILARIOUS. It’s something I do love about Piper Rayne's books, you’re laughing, but you’re also clutching as your heart. And the deep roots of the two leads in this one made me feel all the feels! I can't wait to see how the rest of this series unfolds. Thank you to Piper Rayne and Wildfire Marketing PR for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

Evan Erickson and Seth Andrews grew up close friends until they time they were around nine years old. At that point, their father's, who were in the bagel business together had a falling out and they ended up opening competing bagel shops and severing ties between the families. Now 20 years later, Seth is boudoir photographer and while he is fun and flirty on the outside, he carries a whole lot of guilt stemming from his family due to the fact he chose to go to college over going into the family bagel business. As for Evan, she's taken over running her family's bagel shop since her Dad had a health scare. She's hard working and full of determination, but a little lost since she'd much rather have chosen the path her work life took. A food challenge competition show has come to town and both families are submitting their bagels and cream cheese for judging. Will this end up brining Evan and Seth together, which will in turn reunite the two families? Or will things go disastrously wrong and drive an even bigger wedge between the battling bagel joints? This story was wonderful and you can't help but root for Seth and Evan. Seth is sweet, charming and hot and Evan is beautiful, caring and independent and their chemistry is noticeable immediately. I enjoyed how all of this played out, the role that their friends played and I also enjoyed the ups and downs they had to endure. I highly recommend this entertaining tale! **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

A mistake at the competition now has two families who were at one time not only business partners but best friends having to work together. The only ways for that to happen is for Evan and Seth to bring their families closer by pretending to be engaged. Let the fun begin! The interactions between them are humorous and hot and not only are the characters of Seth and Evan captivating but the great cast of secondary characters only make this story that much better.

Will the pressure of being together prove too much and the two cross a line that was never meant to be crossed? I love Piper Rayne, the two of them can write a Math book and it would have you wanting more. With great drama, some awesome banter, a cast of characters that leave you giggling and of course the spicy moments that leave you breathless. I give this 5 stars.

Anywho, Evan and Seth have a long history of rivalry between their parents, all over bagels and cream cheese. These two went from being childhood best friends and then their parents were on the outs, so they were pushed to no longer acknowledge each other's existence. I was soooo eager to what would be the reason to force these two to just be in the same spot at once, and I was so here for it! With an opportunity they would be great both of their family bagel businesses, they join together and start a fake relationship. And we know how that always goes. I loved that after 20 years, the bond they had as kids was definitely present. As much as they tell themselves that they're just pretending, there's a lot of hidden real feelings behind it all. Seth is just sooo smooth about everything, but he definitely uses humor as a coping mechanism. But his heart is on his sleeve and everyone can see how deeply he cares for Evan. My goodness, I loved his character and in the end, my heart was split wide open for him. Loved these two together, it was such a fun and cute read. I even shed a few tears at the end. But there's no doubt these two were meant to be together, so yeah, I ship them hard ;-) CHECK OUT THE REST OF MY REVIEW | HERE BLOG | INSTAGRAM | AMAZON | BOOKBUB | TWITTER

    Overall Grade: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I love a good romance with a hero and heroine from warring families. There is a reason that Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays: other people like it too. When you read Piper Rayne’s Our Star-Crossed Kiss, along with the other Rooftop Crew stories, you can’t help but fall in love with wise-cracking Seth. He’s the guy who brings the comic relief to his friend group, and that friend group is one of the best parts of this book and its predecessors. Overall Grade: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ I love a good romance with a hero and heroine from warring families. There is a reason that Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays: other people like it too. When you read Piper Rayne’s Our Star-Crossed Kiss, along with the other Rooftop Crew stories, you can’t help but fall in love with wise-cracking Seth. He’s the guy who brings the comic relief to his friend group, and that friend group is one of the best parts of this book and its predecessors. They provide the wisdom and the humor to situations that don’t always feel that way. And I love the group because it’s inclusive. Others can enter it without too much hazing. Enter Evan, Piper Rayne’s heroine in their newest book. She and Seth have a past as their families co-owned a business until they didn’t. After a twenty-year absence from each other’s lives (one where they still resided in the periphery), they decide to couple up under the guise of a fake engagement to help their family businesses by entering a Food Channel show. There is so much to like about Our Star-Crossed Kiss: There is undeniable chemistry between Evan and Seth. These two have liked each other for more than they would like to admit. We saw glimpses of it in the last book that Piper Rayne released, The Rival Roomies, when every time that Evan Erickson is brought up, Seth’s interest is piqued. You want these two to find their way to each other because they complete each other. The Rooftop Crew is back. Once again, they razz Seth, support Seth, and accept Evan into their fold. Their encouragement guides Seth and Evan closer to each other, and I love that Evan finds a space beyond her family. The story itself engages you. I don’t want to give away the story points (read the book for that), but there are themes regarding familial problems, addiction, and the future. All of these feel ancillary to the romance, which should be the point. Piper Rayne carefully create their stories to highlight their heroes and heroines, and that is decidedly true in Our Star-Crossed Kiss. If you have read any of the other Rooftop Crew books, I know you’ll love Seth and Evan’s story. Fake engagement, family feuds, and a couple who are reticent to enter life together will grab your heart and make you root hard for Evan and Seth’s happy ending. Our Star-Crossed Kiss is a perfect sweet and sassy read for any day of the week.
