"Brooke has long been caught in the orbit of Derek, a rising political superstar. First he was her boss, then they were friends and she became his confidant, the one person he shared everything with. And even though she had feelings for him - he's charming and handsome, respected and beloved - she never dreamed he'd feel the same way. Derek is so much older and could have anyone he wants. It turns out that who Derek wants is Brooke, and suddenly none of the reasons they shouldn't be together matter. They fall in love. And even though Brooke has to keep the relationship a secret - stealing weekends away with him, late nights with takeout after long days at work, and business trips that are always a romantic whirlwind - being close to him and her dreams of their future make everything worth it. But Derek becomes embroiled in a scandal - the kind Brooke never could have imagined he'd be involved in - and she is forced to re-examine their relationship and make sense of the man she loves. Poignant, heart-stopping, and resonant, Waiting for a Star to Fall is a story about love, the things we choose to believe, and how sometimes the path to happily ever after has to start with ourselves."--Page 4 of cover.
