If envy is a sin, then let me be damned.

Graham was born to be a star.

Once upon a time, that star shone only for me.

Now, I have to share him with the rest of the world.

For a while, I thought I could do it.  Because, beneath the hypnotic smile, gorgeous body and God-given charm that made him famous, I still caught glimpses of my best friend.

Of the boy who called me sunshine and loved me.

I wore that love like a crown . . . until he placed it on another’s head.

Losing him was agony, distance felt like the only cure.

When tragedy reunites us after years apart, it only takes one touch to erase the past. Just like that, I’m back in his arms.

He promises this time will be different.  But I’m afraid to believe him.

Because behind his star’s blinding brilliance is a darkness that doesn’t want to let him go.

I know a star that bright can’t belong to just one person, but my jealous heart doesn’t want to share him.

I want all of him . . . even if wanting what doesn’t belong to me leads me to ruin.


I have no clue how in the heck I am supposed to put my thoughts into words about this story! It’s been several days since I finished this incredibly captivating read and I am STILL at a loss for words. This is not my first time reading a Dylan Allen book, but I think that it is safe to state that this is my FAVORITE one yet!

Envy is a story unlike anything that I have ever read before. It is a breathtakingly beautiful and emotionally heartfelt read about two unexpected childhood friends who form an unexpected bond like no other. Graham and Apollo’s connection is undeniable and their friendship is one of a kind. Their love story is written in the stars…if only life wasn’t so cruel. She is his sun and he is her star. Apart they must discover themselves before they can find their way back to one another. These two are without a doubt THE perfect match, at least in my eyes! Their unconventional love story will surely have readers on the edge of their seats until the very end.

Graham is one of those not so typical heroes. He is broken. His soul is lost and there is only one person out there that can repair him and bring light back into his heart. Apollo is his sun. She is his everything. He will stop at nothing to give her the life she deserves, even if it means breaking her heart and sending her running from him. He refuses to ruin her life, even if it means sacrificing his own happiness.

Apollo is a lost spirt who fell in love at the age of 11 when she fell from the sky and into Graham’s life. She experienced heartbreak and loss at such a young age, but also discovered that everything happens for a reason because without it she would have never met the love of her life. Graham is her star. She loves him with all her heart and is broken when he pushes her away. She tries to repair and move on, but her heart still aches for him years later.

Apart, but NEVER forgotten… That is when their story truly begins.
