Plot: In Crossed by the Stars, prolific award-winning romance writer L.J. Evans introduces readers to Jada Mori, a fabulously wealthy businesswoman haunted by a grueling, loveless past contrived by her rich but distant Japanese family, and Dax Armaud, an old love from a rival family with whom the chemistry is still almost uncontrollable.

A heartfelt, star-crossed HEA with a protective French billionaire and the daring woman he can’t have that The BookLife Prize from Publisher's Weekly rates a 10/10!

“We’re worth fighting for. A life full of love will always be worth it.”

Dax Armaud has spent the last decade haunted by feelings for the one woman he can never be with. Family secrets mean just being seen with a Mori is a dangerous dance let alone dating one. But a desperate call sends him spinning back into Jada’s life, and now he can’t walk away without leaving half his soul behind.

For years, Jada Mori fought the ties to her father’s world while healing a broken heart. She thought she’d finally escaped them both until a shadow creeps out of her past seeking retribution. When Dax shows up trying to protect her, she’s determined to send him away before her mistakes destroy them both.

Forced into hiding, the tantalizing desire hovering between them refuses to be ignored, and in the end, they’ll have to decide what matters most―family allegiances or a chance at a forever after.

Inspired by Imelda May’s “Falling in Love with You Again,” comes an emotional, second-chance romance with deep, relatable characters and a story you might never forget.

Behind the book

I love Jada because she has a fierceness I always wished I had. She’s brave and unstoppable but also a little broken. Dax is the perfect swoon-worthy hero with suave words and a gorgeous smile, but I adore how Jada snarks at him to keep him at bay, refusing to be drawn in again. After all, he’s already destroyed her heart one too many times…back when they were innocent teens and didn’t know just how deep the betrayals between their families went. Now, they’ve spent a decade trying not to love each other. But when everything explodes, there’s only one choice left: survive it together or not at all.
