Written in the Stars: A Novel Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
With nods to Bridget Jones and Pride and Prejudice, a charming #ownvoices queer holiday rom-com debut about a free-spirited social media astrologer who agrees to fake a relationship with an uptight actuary until New Year's Eve—with results not even the stars could predict!
After a disastrous blind date, Darcy Lowell is desperate to stop her well-meaning brother from playing matchmaker ever again. Love—and the inevitable heartbreak—is the last thing she wants. So she fibs and says her latest setup was a success. Darcy doesn't expect her lie to bite her in the ass.
Elle Jones, one of the astrologers behind the popular Twitter account, Oh My Stars, dreams of finding her soul mate. But she knows it is most assuredly not Darcy... a no-nonsense stick-in-the-mud, who is way too analytical, punctual, and skeptical for someone as free-spirited as Elle. When Darcy's brother—and Elle's new business partner—expresses how happy he is that they hit it off, Elle is baffled. Was Darcy on the same date? Because... awkward.
When Darcy begs Elle to play along, she agrees to pretend they're dating to save face. But with a few conditions: Darcy must help Elle navigate her own overbearing family over the holidays and their arrangement expires on New Year's Eve. The last thing they expect is to develop real feelings during a fake relationship.
But maybe opposites can attract when true love is written in the stars?

This is one of those books.
'Written in the Stars' is the story of Elle and Darcy and their broken, beautiful hearts that yearn for connection, but aren't quite sure how to get their happily ever after.
I love a fake relationship trope book and Elle and Darcy make this well-worn path their own. Alexandria Bellefleur crafted two well-rounded characters with deep flaws who genuinely care about other people, added an interesting conflict of world views (an astrologer and an actuary? yes please!), and secondary characters who anchored our heroines in reality and provided depth to the story. Elle and Darcy will capture your heart with their love story. A perfect read. One of my favourites of 2020. I can't wait for more books by this author!

It is a lesbian and bisexual woman, fake dating, opposites attract!
Darcy and Elle could not be any more different but were both endearing in different ways that was so much fun to read. They had a disaster of a first date, enter a fake relationship with chemistry that is hard to deny. I loved how Darcy stood up for Elle with her family, I would have loved to see more of that- it was a shame there wasn’t an epilogue to this story.
Super easy and fun read but had plenty of moments and quotes where I stopped and was really moved by the words!
Spice was 🌶 to 🌶.5 but it really fit into the story, I didn’t mind that it wasn’t super spicy- the rest of the story and characters make up for that plenty.
This follows romantic lesfic’s well trodden path in terms of how it all plays out. I’ll not spell it out for you, suffice to say that there are really no surprises. But, for some reason (which isn’t entirely clear to me) it seems to have reached a much wider audience than standard lesfic and that has to be a good thing, surely?
This is an adorable spin on the classic Pride and Prejudice. I found this to be a very funny read, with great one liners and loveable characters. It had the perfect amount of romance and steam 🔥 I really loved Alexandria’s writing and the story that she has written.
I would absolutely recommend this book.
