This was my first read by Jennifer Locklear and I've got to say, she has blown me away!

Constellation was one of those books that I just couldn't put down! Sleep could wait, I needed all the words.

Kathleen Brighton is a successful, smart and sexy business woman who finds herself in tangles with her newest colleague, Jack Evans. Jack makes her feel things that she isn't sure she's ready to feel. He has her ready to strip herself and expose her soul.

Caught under the thumb of her jerk of a father, Kathleen finds herself torn and wanting to keep her guard firmly in place.

Throughout this book Jennifer sets the pages on fire with Kathleen and Jack. Her words made me feel. I cried and I cheered for these characters. She had me all in from the first page. One thing that really stands out to me is how strong of a character Kathleen is, there is so much to admire about the person this character is.

Jennifer totally knocks this one out of the park. It will be on my top reads list for sure. One click this FIVE star read today!

Let me first give you a warning about Constellation by Jennifer Locklear: CLIFFHANGER! Not only that, but you are left wanting more and I need the next book asap.

Kathleen's professional life is going great, and she is working to make her firm even bigger, but her personal life isn't as stellar. She is insecure and would rather not get involved than to get her heart broken. Jack changes everything.

Jack moved there believing he would be making a better life for his family, but his wife decided it wasn't for her, and they divorced. Now he has a daughter and a job, and he is hesitant to find love again. But there is something about Kathleen.

When something major happens, will they be able to hold onto the trust and love that they share? Or will it all fall apart?

I really liked this book. It was well written and I liked the characters, but the ending fell a little flat for me. Maybe it was the cliffhanger, but I'm not sure. I do warn you that you will need tissues and it is hard to put down. The characters are full of life and the story flows from page to page. 4 stars!

Constellation is the first book in the Constellation series. I would give this book a 3.5 stars and recommend to others. This story was written very well and had a great story line but I felt even though yes it is a the first book that it should have had something more at the end, not sure what but I felt like I was missing something to keep me hanging on until the next book comes out. I hope the next book in the series will give me all that I am hoping for. With that said this is the first book I have read by this author and I will continue on this journey because she is a good writer and the characters were definitely likable. We shall see where it carries us next...

Kathleen is in line to take over her fathers company, she is focused on her career and trying to prove her worth to her father... she doesn't get involved in relationships because she is guarding her heart from getting broken because of past insecurities she deals with on a daily basis.... but there is something that draws her to Jack...

Can they find there HEA?? Or is there something or someone that will be standing in the way?

Get to one clicking to see where this story starts.. and then hope for the best on and ending we will get in the future...

This is beautifully written and I don't want to detract from that. I just felt like it was leading up to more that wasn't shared. Hopefully book 2 will reveal all.
