Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Contemporary Adult

Stars die in one of two ways.
So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony â¦ or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.
When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners.
Now, eight years later, heâs trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nationâs most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away.
But sheâs a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her lifeâs mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished.
And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.
When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, itâs impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halleyâs Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demiâs heart in the most spectacular of fashions.
She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?
