    3. I didn't enjoy this story as much as I thought I would. Admittedly, it's not badly written (although sometimes the narration doesn't really flow), and there are some sweet moments. It's a nice quick read but I think I expect a lot more from a romance novel. I expect fireworks, chemistry, sexual tension, fluff, characters I could fall in love with, a powerful love but a believable story. Overall the story had very little of that and left me cold.The main reason is the lack of originality in the p [...]

    4. This was an enjoyable romance book. I find myself really liking how Jae writes. I feel drawn into the characters and hopeful about their relationships, it just makes her books great to read. And Under a Falling Star is no exception. I found both the MC's Austen and Dee to be very likeable, even with Dee's harden exterior. I thought the romance was a nice pace. No quick "I love yous" so it seemed realistic. I also enjoyed that Austen's best friend happened to be Dawn from Conflict of Interest It [...]

    5. A very entertaining romance. I really like Jae's humorous style of writing. The appearance of Dawn and Aiden put "Conflict of Interest" high on my re-read list.

    6. Accidents happen but this accident leads to a connection nearer protagonist expects. First day of Austen’s new job and she is put to task by decorating the Christmas tree. When the tree topper falls and hit’s Dee on the head Austen doesn’t know that Dee is intact the infamous COO of the company who has the nickname Attila the Hun! But Austen gets to know the person behind the facade and begins to fall deeply for her! But how can a relationship with the boss work?Jae writing once again was [...]

    7. A good romance. With an emphasis on romance. Under a Falling Star gives us two well-drawn characters, Dee and Austen, who meet under fortuitous circumstances. They feel, of course, that initial spark. A kiss happens, but there's a catch: Dee is Austen's boss. What now?The boss-employee-romance taboo thing is essentially the only thing keeping the leading ladies apart. There's no subplot. This has its upside and its downside. Positively, the relationship is carefully developed. The main character [...]

    8. i made it a couple chapters before having to give up and return the audiobook. the narrator made each mc sound like a flamboyant gay man mixed with Oprah Winfrey. I've been known to listen to anything to the end, even monotone and very amateur narrators. She tried very hard and maybe had some theater background , lots of feeling and inflection, but nobody talks like that.!Sorry to say, this is the first audio book in my life that i couldn't finish.

    9. This book killed me. Death by cuteness. Austen and Dee have the perfect office romance which left me with a perma-smile for the rest of the day.

    10. I love the way Jae's novels take me on a journey through the relationship. I don't feel like I'm racing to a destination, rather more like meandering through scenery. That's not to say that the journey is all sweetness and light, there are always complications and missed signs. Under a Falling Star is a common trope where two women meet, get on remarkably well, only to discover that they work together and one of them is the boss. What makes this different is the writing and the characters. It's [...]

    11. This has really been a fun reading.Somehow the romance is similar to Gill McKnight Ambereye, but of course without any supernatural or werewolf. However it's the story of a stern, grumpy workaholic boss, Dee, who becomes a total sweetie when love touches her life. An interior journey, the miracle of love in resurrecting our life from a difficult family and a terrible environment.The plot isn't really anything original, but the atmosphere is charming and the characters both very nice, so you side [...]

    12. Romance with a Capital R.Jae writes so well, I am constantly amazed that English is not her first language.A lovely story, well realised and played out to it's logical conclusion.

    13. When I first read this book back in November of 2014, I ended up giving it a rating of 5 stars (well, more accurately, a rating of 4.75, but that still means 5 stars were clicked on). After rereading 4 other Jae books this week, and rating all of them higher than I did for their first read, I had a strong suspicion that this one would be as well – rated higher than first read. I was right that my rating changed. But I now wish to rate this somewhere closer to 2.Before I get into the book or wh [...]

    14. Best romance I've read this year. 4.5 StarsAusten's first day on her new job isn't going well. Not good as in escorting someone to the ER with a head wound. Top that off with the fact that Dee, the aforementioned someone (who unintentionally brained herself with the crystal tree topper) might just be someone, she would like to know in a romantic sense, is also her boss's sister working in the same company. A bit complicated would be a good description.This is my third novel by Jae, and things ke [...]

    15. 5 shiny star-shaped tree toppers. ^_^The story is great with well-placed humour and coupley stuff. I was mostly smiling throughout reading it. This reminded me why I read Jae's works.Characters are likable and the romance was realistic. Toby is such a little sh*staticky noise*

    16. Really lovely, sweet book. I loved that it showed the progression of the relationship and didn't just make it as far as an "I love you"--I really believed in them as a solid couple when the book ended.

    17. How do I know if the book I am reading is good? When the author makes us fall in love and grow with their characters. And Jae does just that. This is a very easy read and guaranteed to make you feel loved all over again, and again, and again.

    18. This was a really nice read. I especially loved the first few chapters, where Austen didn't know, who the other woman really was and it was funny how she treated her. It was hilarious.:)

    19. The first half was slow burn and I loved it, after that it started to bore me. All in all it was a good story but very unoriginal. I liked the ending.

    20. Solid story. It's a straight forward romance as we follow Dee and Austen's relationship. There isn't a lot of drama in the book so it's somewhat flat in that way but, overall, it's a feel good novel.

    21. A Beautiful Bit of Perfection by JaeAusten gets a new job at Kudo's Entertainment. On her first day she volunteers to decorate the Corporate Christmas Tree. The theme is Wishes… Everyone is to write their wish on a star and hang it on the tree. At the end of the day she see's another woman messing with her tree lights. The mystery woman manages to dislodges the crystal star on the top of the tree to which lands on the top of her head and shatters, cutting her. Austen being the bossy yet sweet [...]

    22. Under a Falling Star was my favorite book by Jae that I've read to date. It focuses on two very strong and stubborn women who have to overcome a problematic boss-employee situation. The pleasant banter between the characters, the steady evolution of Dee and Austen as people, and the sense of love trumping all just made this book such a joy to read. Jae is just so good at touching upon all aspects of a relationship. Everything feels like it's given just the right amount of time. With that being s [...]

    23. Solid, well-written and charming romance. Jae just writes good stories. Clever plot, interesting development and perfectly crafted as always. This is as ‘trad’ romance as you can get, and set as an office romance to boot, but she manages to make it new, refreshing and hold your interest. I couldn’t put it down.Full of wit and humor with the occasional laugh out loud comedy moment Jae has a subtle style that draws you in and just carries you along. Truely amazing given English is not her fi [...]

    24. I loved this book! It is a really fast paced read with engaging characters and moments that are not predictable. It has its own flavor of humor mixed into it. Yes, it is about an office romance, but I personally did not see any more resemblance of it to Gill McKnight's Amber Eye. I loved Amber Eye as well but they're two different authors and the story is told differently with maybe one or two things that were similar.I also loved the addition of having the characters from Conflict of Interest i [...]

    25. The CharactersJae handled both women well. Austen is a feisty little woman who doesn’t let Dee get away with anything.Dee, on the other hand, does what she needs to do to keep the company going and sometimes that means playing the bad guy where the employees are concerned. Jae wrote this with a believability that feels like she intimately understands the role of a corporate manager and the internal battle that they face when doing their jobs.The Writing StyleThe pace was great, the story flowe [...]
