Review Post: Beneath His Stars (The Stars Duet) by Amie Knight


Beneath His Stars, the first in the Stars Duet, an all-new emotional and romantic duet from Amie Knight is available NOW!


I met Adam Nova under the twinkling lights of a nighttime sky.

He was hiding, but that gorgeous boy didn’t belong in the dark.

Nevertheless it was where he lived; a different world than mine.

I was Livingston Montgomery, Southern debutante.

With the world at my fingertips, I was well on my to being another spoiled socialite.

But I didn’t want money.

I didn’t want social status.

I wanted him; tattoos, sarcastic smirk, bad boy reputation and all.

It didn’t matter that he was from the wrong side of the tracks.

It didn’t matter that my family forbade me from seeing him.

I just wanted to be Beneath His Stars.

*****5 Utterly Unforgettable Stars*****

I honestly struggled with how I wanted to start this book review. I have so many words about this book and its literal amazingness, but I wanted the words I used to convey just how utterly incredible this book was. I wanted to make sure that the first words of this review let you know how much I loved every single moment of this story. I wanted my words to do these characters and their unforgettable story the justice they so deserved.

If I could only tell you one thing about this book it would be that it is hands down one of the BEST books I have EVER read in my reading life.

If I could tell you more things about this book it would be that these characters, their emotionally breathtaking journey together, and every beautiful, heart wrenching, and angst filled word of this book gave me life. It gave me everything and then some. It blew me away, consumed me so truly, and just turned my entire world upside down while I was within its pages.

Amie Knight exceptionally crafted an epic love story that I will NEVER forget for the rest of my days.

This story is one that spans years, decades, and so many moments that will take ahold of you with all that they have. Beneath His Stars is the first part of a completely mesmerizing and unforgettable story about young love, friendship, and the magic, pull, and power of the stars.

This book is a sweeping tale of what happens when the boy from the wrong side of the track meets the rich girl who he shouldn’t touch. But really, it’s so much more than that. Beneath His Stars is not just a typical story of boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, and they live happily ever after. This story is so much more than that. This is a story of an unexpected friendship that turns into so much more. This is a story about what happens when you meet the one person you didn’t even know you needed in your life. This is a story about meeting the person who changes it all for you, the person who alters your life course, your heart, and your very being. And as you read this story with Adam and Liv, you will experience those changes yourself.

You will not be the same person at the end of this book that you were at the start of reading it, and that is just part of what makes it so utterly spectacular.

Beneath His Stars is the first half of a love story that spans a lifetime. It is a story that will touch every part of your heart and every part of the night sky along the way.

This book gives you the first half of a story that will own you mind, body, and soul. What Adam and Liv give you in their love story will take your breath away, will have you feeling every single emotion you didn’t realize you even had, and will have you knowing that what you’re experiencing with them is truly unique. Beneath His Stars seamlessly weaves together heartfelt emotion, the most consuming angst, and a connection that you will feel through every single page.

The love story you get within the pages of this magnificent book will give you it all. And I mean that with everything that I have. This story will give you it all. It will give you friendship, romance, angst, a bit of suspense, heartbreak, longing, and all the glorious emotion that you will LOVE. It will give you all the feels, all the southern goodness, and a story that will make you laugh and smile and cry your eyes out in the same breath. Like I said, it will give you it all. And then some.

What Amie Knight so incredibly creates in this book is amazing in every way.

What I loved about Beneath His Stars, and really this entire duet, was that as much as it was about the big things, it was also about the little things. They had equal importance and relevance and impact through every page. In this story it was just as much about a field and a coke bottle, as it was about love and friendship. It was about all the glorious stars in the night sky, just as much as it was about the two distinctive people lying beneath it. It was about two people from two very different worlds, just as much as it was about a girl and boy trying to find their way.

The nuances, the magic between these characters, and both the little and big things are what made this book and this entire story what it is. That is what created what was so special about Adam and Liv and their story. That is what puts this story in a whole different stratosphere than any other book. That is what made this book one of the best books I have ever read and one of my top reads for this entire year.

Amie Knight gave me it all in Beneath His Stars. She really did, and I honestly could not have asked for more. And even though she left me with one helluva cliffhanger, she made it all PERFECT. She made every moment with Adam and Liv mean something. Nothing was too little or small, it all added to the picture. She made this story one of the most beautiful and enrapturing stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. She created a world I NEVER wanted to leave. In fact as I sit here writing this review, all I can think about is how much I want to go back to that world.

I want more Adam and Liv. I want more of their magic. I want more stars in the night sky. I want more Nova and Luna. I want more of them and their hearts connecting and more of the pieces of this thoughtfully crafted world. I want more of it all, and that speaks so much to what Amie Knight so magnificently created in this world and in this book that I still desperately want more of all of that.

It has been many days since I have read Adam and Liv’s story, and I am still just as entranced by them and by it. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them, their love or their journey together, and I haven’t been able to stop feeling what those two gave me as their story unfolded. It was a bit of rollercoaster with more twists and turns than you can shake a stick at, but that is what made it theirs.

When you read this story it will take ahold of your heart and soul with the tightest grip, and it won’t let you go. It still hasn’t let me go, but I love that because it shows the authentic and very real connection this author allows you to have with these characters and everything they share together.

As I sit here writing this review I keep thinking that I want to tell you all the things about what you’ll get in this book with Adam and Liv…but in the same breath I don’t want to tell you much of anything of what you’ll actually get with them because I don’t want to take away from any of the literal amazingness you will get with them. To take away anything from the unforgettable reading experience those two will give you would be a travesty.

It would be so wrong because this book is everything. And more. So much more that I will NEVER forget.

Beneath His Stars is the first part to an epic love story that knows no bounds. It is bursting with feels and emotion and the most tangible level of angst that will hit you so damn hard where it counts. This story is one that you will never want to have end, and trust me when I say that when you reach the end you will be desperate for more Adam and Liv. Their story isn’t easy, and it might just break your heart a bit, but I promise you, it’s so beyond worth it.

Their love is worth it. Their hearts are worth it. Their journey together is worth it. Their heartbreak is worth it.

They are worth it. In every way possible.

Amie Knight has created one of the most exceptional stories I have read in this book, and I am telling you, from the moment you start this book you will love it. You will love it, enjoy it, feel it, and breathe it all, and in the end, you will be damn glad you read this book. Trust me. It will steal your breath, it will make you cry and laugh and feel every emotion under the sun, and that is honestly something you will relish in because this story is one for the record books.

This book is magic. It is the stars. It is the first part of Adam and Liv. It is angst heaven and epic in its nature. And it a book I promise you will love and never forget.

So please, I beg of you, read this book. Read it. Feel it. Live every word. And be prepared to be utterly amazed by its literal exceptionalness.

I promise you have never read or experienced a story quite like this one, and that is just one star in the night sky of what makes this a truly amazing book that will own you in every single way possible.


“Are you smoking?” Her lip curled in disgust.

I nodded.

It was her turn to look disgusted this time. “Do you even speak?”

I nodded again and she shook her head in disbelief before reaching over the space between us and snatching the cigarette out of my mouth so fast I didn’t see it coming. I stood there dumbfounded. People didn’t snatch shit away from me. People were scared of me. Not this brave girl. I should have known.

“Smoking is disgusting.” She said it quietly like it didn’t matter, but I could tell it did to her. She bent over and put the butt out on the driveway before standing up again and shoving it in her pocket.

I smirked. “You gonna keep that?”

Her eyes ignited with anger. “No, I’m going to throw it in the trash because I’m not a litterbug.”

Shaking my head, I muttered under my breath, “Fucking litterbug.” She was being cute. The girl with the too long legs and too big mouth that I couldn’t get out of my mind was fucking cute, too. I was screwed.

I wanted to full-on smile at her cuteness, but I held my happiness close to my chest. God knew it always came with a price. And I was done paying.

“You kiss your momma with that smoke mouth?” she asked snarkily, clearly pissed off about my smirk.

I lowered my head and took a step back, running a hand through my dark hair. I wanted to tell this girl things. Things I had no business telling her, like that I didn’t kiss my momma with anything anymore. Instead, I asked the question that had been plaguing me since she’d seemed surprised it was me who had left the notes.

“Who did you think it was?”

Her face screwed up in confusion. “What?”

I stood straighter and licked my lips before answering. “Who did you think left the notes?”

I was feeling strangely vulnerable in that moment waiting for her answer and I didn’t like it one bit. Why did it matter to me who wrote her or didn’t? Or who else thought she was the most intriguing thing ever? For fuck’s sake, she was just another rich bitch from the island. Why did anything about what she was about to say matter to me at all?

She bit her lip again and I still wanted to reach over and pull it from her teeth. It was sexy that lip bite, innocent even, and for some reason that made it all the more attractive.

“I don’t know.” Her brow furrowed in thought and she looked away, almost like she didn’t want to tell me the answer to my question. But then her eyes landed on mine again. “I thought it was the other guy—”

“Boone?” I interrupted loudly.

A disgusted look crossed her face. “God, no. Not him. The blond. The other guy.”

I let out a long breath accompanied by a sarcastic chuckle. “Grady?” That guy didn’t even graduate high school and she thought he knew anything about astronomy. I would have laughed if the whole thing hadn’t annoyed me so much.

Her eyes brightened. “Is that his name?”

I pulled out my pack of cigarettes again. “You like him or something?”

“What? No!”

I walked out into the street and lit my smoke far away from her.

She started to follow me. “Where are you going?”


“But I don’t even know your name!” she yelled and stomped a foot.

I almost smiled again.
