Kim Briggs
Series: Starr Fall, Book 1
Genre: Young Adult, YA Contemporary, YA Romance
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: November 4, 2016
On the run from the Organization, Starr never planned on falling in love.
Starr Bishop’s the complete package. A perfect smile, brains to match, and a winning attitude. Boys want to date her and girls want to be her. She’s the type of girl you want to hate, if only she wasn’t so damn likable. But don’t worry, she’s not interested in your boyfriend. Boys are one complication she can live without.
When the Organization decides she’s not only the model student but the ideal assassin, Starr’ll need a lot more than high test scores and extracurricular involvement to get herself out of that commitment.
Dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood is the last person she’d expect—or even want— to come to her rescue. From opposite ends of Webster High’s social hierarchy, their lives collide in one electrifying moment. Christian isn’t the Goth loner he pretends to be, he’s a part Cherokee, All-American boy who wants to be a hero, Starr’s hero. Christian makes Starr forget that the Organization is after her, but nothing will stop the Organization from collecting their top recruit.
By the way, the spot for junior class president just became available.
Abandon whatever you are doing and read this book! I truly enjoyed it. It's such a quick paced book. You could easily read five or six chapters without realizing how much time has passed! The ending left me wanting more!
- Shakera Blakney, YA Insider

Excerpt:

We watch in silence as they disappear from the room. In their absence, my mind quickly returns to what the doctor said. “Tortured, Christian?” He winces as he turns to me. “The doctor told me you were tortured with blunt force objects. What the hell happened?”
His hand searches for mine. It takes everything in my power, but I step away from him. The dark circles under his eyes make me feel horrible, but I need an answer. We’re talking about something much too serious to joke about. “Starr, it was nothing. I got pushed around. Someone hit me once or twice.”
I recoil at the thought of anyone laying a finger on Christian. He must have seen my expression. “Seriously, it was nothing.”
I take another step back and cross my arms. “I damn well know you were hit more than once. I am not an idiot. I’m tougher than you give me credit for.” He raises his hand to stop me from talking, but I cut him off. I search his deep blue eyes for a hint of deception, but find nothing there. He either buried his torture so deep he doesn’t remember, or his life means so little to him, he doesn’t want me to know. I’m not sure which is worse. “I understand why you don’t want to upset your friends, but you better tell me. We’re in this together.”
“Starr, it was nothing.”I walk toward the door. “Fine!”“Where are you going?” he cries.“I’m going for a walk.” I pause at the door and look over at him.
There’s fear in his eyes. Fear that I’ll leave him and not come back. “Don’t go,” he whispers. “Please, don’t go.”
His plea brings me to tears. He’s been through so much because of me. I can’t hurt him anymore. I swipe a rogue tear with the back of my hand. I’m still mad, but my hot temper subsides. A slow smile crosses my face. “I’ll go find some muffins.”
With a deep exhale, his demeanor relaxes. “Blueberry?” “Of course, get some sleep. I’ll be back in ten minutes.” “Make it five.” All traces of humor disappear from his
face. “I might be lying in a hospital bed, but I will come get you.”

About Kim Briggs

Author Pic
Kim Briggs once smashed into a tree while skiing. The accident led to a concussion, a cracked sternum, temporary notoriety as a sixth grader returned from the dead, and the realization that fictionalized accounts are way more interesting than just slipping on the ice.
An unhealthy obsession with conspiracy theories combined with a love of travel and happily ever afters led Kim to write her YA novel, Starr Fall, where a secret organization decides 17-year-old Starr Bishop is not only the model student, but the ideal assassin. While in hiding, Starr meets dark, moody, and dead sexy Christian Evergood. Cue the swoon worthy music. But it’s not all happily ever afters for Kim. Her NA novel, And Then He, explores the dark and scary corners of the human psyche. Following a night of innocent flirting with a handsome stranger, Tiffani finds herself in the midst of a nightmare she can’t escape. And Then He is available through Amazon and other major book retailers. Starr Fall released November 2016 with Inkspell Publishing, followed by Starr Lost in January 2017 and Starr Gone in June 2017. Her novella, Avalanche is part of the Valentine Kisses Anthology and released February 14, 2017.
When she’s not doing something writerly, Kim can be found jumping into snowdrifts with her three kids, husband, and dog. She’s careful to avoid trees.
