Darcy Lowell of Written In The Stars is the complete opposite of Elle Jones: Realistic (Elle says she is too “stuck in her ruts”), logical, pragmatic, analytical, no-nonsense, and skeptical. No wonder Elle doesn’t see any future with her, at least in the first few parts of Written In The Stars novel.

At first, Elle feels she’s forced to be in a relationship, just because Darcy begs her. Things start to get more awkward as Darcy’s brother starts to see the romantic sparks between the two women. Then, Darcy and Elle start to write their love stories in romantic ways.

Story Of Written In The Stars

Then, Darcy in Written In The Stars novel becomes so desperate to find anyone who is willing to pose as her significant other Even for a fellow female. She knows Elle is not interested in her at all. Not only because she is also a woman, but also because Elle doesn’t see the personality compatibility between her and Darcy.

Still, Darcy forces Elle to pose as her girlfriend. At first, the jargon “Written In The Stars” doesn’t apply, since Elle feels reluctant to date an icy-cold woman like Darcy. However, Darcy’s brother who happens to be Elle’s colleague spots their closeness earlier and continually teases the two women.

One of the most interesting things I find when reading Written In The Stars novel is that Darcy and Elle start to develop romantic feelings toward each other. So, this novel is all about going from a fake relationship to a more serious romantic relationship. Who knows, if two completely different people can attract each other and if it’s all Written In The Stars?

Part 3: Meet The Author Of Written In The Stars

Written In The Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

“Swoony contemporary romance” is the specialization of Alexandria Bellefleur, the award-winning author who is also the person behind the success of the Written In The Stars novel. As one of the most popular romance novelists, it’s not unusual for Alexandria Bellefleur to picture her MCs as either “loveable” or “sunshine”.

In Written In The Stars, Elle Jones is “the sunshine” to Darcy Lowell’s “loveable grump”. The Twitter astrologer is an idealist, dreamer, romantic at heart, loving, and kind-hearted woman, while the daughter of the overbearing Lowell family is just her opposite: Analytical, logical, always on time, a no-nonsense woman, and so on.

Even though I’ve always believed in the idea of opposite attracts, I haven’t read any novels with so contrasting MCs like the ones in this novel. Even Pride Prejudice’s MCs have some similarities, but not in the ways Alexandria Bellefleur writes about Elle and her girlfriend, Darcy, in this novel.

Anyway, Written In The Stars itself is the debut novel for Alexandria Bellefleur. Since the author herself is one of New York’s Best-Selling Authors, I’m not surprised that today, we can enjoy reading this novel through various platforms and so many translated languages.
