Dear Future Self is a 23,000-word novella spin-off of award-winning Starfish: A Rock Star Romance. It can be read as a stand-alone and guarantees a happily ever after. For mature readers only.
Review: Another romance read (out of my regular genre) but a book that is so powerful that it made me devour it in one sitting. The book is a short romance book that touches on loneliness even when you’re at the top of the food chain. I really liked the connection to the previous novel (Starfish) and I definitely liked seeing the character development in this one. The writing was also very well done.
My only complaint is that the book was a bit slow paced for me, but it’s a romance so those usually are slower lol. The book was also really short and I felt like the book could have easily went another 50 pages with what it had, but that’s just my opinion.
Verdict: A well done romance novel!
