Falling Sky (Blue Phoenix #2), by Lisa Swallow

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

This is the follow up to Summer Sky, which I read earlier this year and absolutely loved.  It had quite a cliffhanger, so I was anxious to get my hands on Falling Sky.  

Sky's world turned upside down when she met rock star Dylan Morgan, and exploded when she discovered his hidden past.
Four months after Sky learns Dylan's devastating secret, she's trying to piece her life back together. Without an explanation from Dylan, Sky has no choice but to try and forget him.
Dragged back into the life he ran from, Dylan continues to spiral downwards as he copes with his fame the only way he knows how. Shattered by the revelation Sky knows his darker past, he forces himself to return to England and explain.
Sky and Dylan reconnect, attempting to build on the shaky foundations of their summer. But the outside world continues to conspire against them.
Taking place in the epicentre of the Blue Phoenix world, Sky and Dylan's story continues amongst the chaos surrounding the band and its members. 
I loved Dylan and Sky, even though on occasion I wanted to scream at them to get there shit together.  Dylan was hiding from his past, and wouldn't just have a conversation with Sky.  And Sky was obviously in love with Dylan but wouldn't give in because she was scared.  I had to respect Sky for not just giving into the hot rock star!  I am not sure I would have been able to hold out as long as she did!!   
I thought this was a great extension of Dylan and Sky's story.  We got a ton of insight into Dylan and why he is the way he is.  And also a little more about Sky.  The other fun part of this book was the insight into the rest of Blue Phoenix.  They were really background characters in Summer Sky, so it was interesting to get some more insight into that dynamic.  
Summer Sky and Falling Sky is a great love story, between a Rock Star and a normal girl.  This is not your typical rock star story and that's one of the reasons that I loved it.  I love that Sky is a normal girl who doesn't immediately fall for the sexy rock star.  It is a sexy, funny, sarcastic, and sometimes heart breaking read.  I highly recommend it!!  If you are looking for a sexy, fun, Summer read, these are your books!  Both are available now!
We will be getting more books about the other members of Blue Phoenix in the Fall of this year and I am super excited!!
