Note that I bought this book and now I own it. This review can also be found on The StoryGraph.

Last year I purchased this book since one of the two libraries I go to gave this book away since it was too old or only a few people read it before I did and to be honest after reading some ok fantasy books, to say the least I switched to sci-fi and I'm glad I read this because this was a step up from the last novels however... I still think it could've received improvements here and there but it was otherwise an enjoyable read. Where do I begin? It starts with the main character Em whose full and last name I don't even know and not long after that it was already action-packed as she used a spoon out of all things to escape prison but I'm not sure why she got in there in the first place and now she meets this other major character called Finn. Only a few pages later they discover a time machine and so they travel four years back to alter the past to change the future and all they have to do is to kill another guy called James. Sounds simple right? No. This is where the book turns into a slow burn with much more steady pacing and it got more intriguing when it introduced another POV from Marina, everything looked normal for her until Em came along to start her mission, Nate got shot on live TV and it all fell apart from there. Nate is necessary to the plot since there were some clues involving him that led Em to the antagonist James who will ruin the world in the future and she tries to kill him. Multiple times. But it didn't work, he just got away somehow and only towards the end of the book there was another James somehow, one character killed himself and it was all an unclear mess at the end and oh did I mention the characters weren't the most fleshed out people ever? Wow. That's a low note. Also, there's a sequel but I have no idea what it was about and the library that used to have this probably won't get it, considering they got their last batch this year.

Update: I have received word from the author, and she won't write a sequel since she thinks it won't be as good as the first book.

Viki, short for Viktoria with a K, serves drinks in a dive bar in a mining town on a barely habitable moon. Her life of quiet desperation changes when she discovers she is an heir to a fortune on the halcyon planet below. She quickly adapts to a new lavish style of life, but there is the nagging problem that a killer is stalking everyone named in the will. Can she trust any of her new beaus? In The Stars Between Us, Cristen Terrill has written a Hallmark Channel romantic mystery in science fiction clothing. I, of course, would like it better if the sci-fi elements were more front and center.… (més)

A fun, different, and unique space romance in a dystopian world/setting. This was not my usual read, but it was pretty good. If you like enemies to lovers, dystopian societies, conspiracies, independent and strong-willed women, cinnamon roll boys, mystery, thrills, drama, and twists, then you'll love this book.
Vika is a girl that's grown up making ends meet by chipping in her earnings from being a barmaid. It wasn't always that way, though. She and her family used to be in the more elite class before things went badly for them and they fell down the totem pole in society. Sky is another interesting character and Ariel is too. How all of them meet and what happens with them and their dynamics are another interesting part of everything. It was a quick read that kept my interest and I enjoyed it a lot and would recommend it.
Thanks so much to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press/Wednesday Books for letting me read and review this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This one was juicy right up until the very last sentence! I didn't read the blurb, so ten percent in was a plot twist, but then halfway through came another one that I suspected that brought so much more mystery to the book. Lovely.
