Publisher's Summary

From NYT and USA Today best-selling author A.L. Jackson comes a friends-to-lovers romance about an unattainable rockstar and his best friend’s younger sister....

Maggie Fitzgerald is the last girl I should think about taking to my bed.

On the cusp of turning 21, she has her whole life waiting out ahead of her. Sexy AF while still radiating an innocence that I know better than to taint.

And here I am, itching to reach out and touch a girl who is so forbidden that just thinking about her feels like committing a mortal sin.

Thing is, I love playing with fire.

Rhys Manning is everything I shouldn’t want.

Country-rock’s newest superstar.

Fun. Wild. Ready to show the world a good time.

He’s so off-limits it isn’t even funny.

So out of reach he might as well be a poster tacked on my wall.

Too bad every time he looks at me, my heart races out of control.

Now, I’m stuck living with him for the entire summer....

We’re only supposed to be friends. Still, I should have known it was a terrible idea when I started sneaking into his room. Especially when it’s clear he’s keeping secrets.

Secrets that might destroy us both.

One touch, and I want more.

One kiss, and I’m spiraling out of control.

I know it’s reckless to start dancing in the flames.

But in exchange for getting to spend one night with this brooding bad boy? I might be willing to get burned....

CWs for this title are available on my website.

Rockstars or Vigilantes? Pick a lane!

Ughhhhh.... I’ve read several A.L. Jackson books... some I’ve loved, some not so much. This was a miss for me. It’s not that it’s bad, it’s just too melodramatic for my taste.
It irks me to no end when characters spend years and years torturing themselves over an issue that probably could have been resolved with about 6 weeks of therapy. I mean, these guys are loaded rockstars, they can afford the co-pays!

Amazing

OMG how amazing! I really did not know how Amy was going to write Rhys's story after the end of Falling into You. I don't know why I questioned it. Beneath the Stars was so amazing. Maggie comes off as the broken one but deep down she really is the strongest after all she has been through. She uses her strength to help Rhys's fix 'his broken', a broken that he hides from the majority of the world. Maggie sees through the fun loving, joke cracking stallion that Rhys lets the world see, someone only those he grew up with really know. The chemistry between Rhys and Maggie is explosive. It doesn't take much for them both to realize their is no putting out their fire. Another 5 star book!!

Exciting and Beautiful ❤️

This story was my favorite of the series. Andi is always amazing how she draws you in with every word and soothes you at the same time. Zachary, what can I say he truly brought Reese’s character to life. His voice and tone makes you fall in love over and over. Needless to say I truly enjoyed this book!!!!

Amazingly read.

Definitely worth a listen. Zachary Webber alone is amazing but together he and Andy Arndt are phenomenal.

Amazing

I have loved this series but Rhys and Maggie gave us such a deep connection. Rhys feeling unworthy of love and haunted by his past and Maggie struggling with her own past but were the perfect calm for each other. A.L. Jackson has such a talent with how her words flow so beautifully throughout the story

Not for me

The storyline is great, narration amazing… and it’s not a bad book by any means it’s just truly NOt for me. It’s long winded. I have ADD so the overly descriptive borderline beating a dead horse for lack of a better term, style of writing just can’t keep my focus. I get lost. I tried to take a break and come back to it which usually works for me when I don’t like a book at first listen../ and I have it a good chance… I finally gave up with only 4 hours left… with no remorse or looming curiosity.

Who talks like this?

Seriously. It’s a good story, but that just gets buried under the ridiculous dialogue filled with so much dramatic nonsense. Every single interaction between the characters is made out to be the *most* important and the *deepest* conversation ever. “Is there milk for cereal?” “I love how you also wonder if there is milk.” “Milk is what brings us all together in the love of family…and what makes life so scary.” “How would I ever survive without your love for me…and milk?” “This emotional connection over milk will live in my heart forever.” Blah blah blah…

I think I’m done w/ this author

While the story’s premise was interesting, the narration great, this author’s over use of the different Figures of Speech (eg Similes & Metaphors) is taxing. This book could have used a heavy hand in the editing dept & been much more enjoyable without the inner dialog word salads.

Great love story.

Totally loved this book! The passion, love, growth and finally acceptance. Totally worth the money. 💯loved it!!!
I have not read the previous books. I recommend you do. I had to guess on a few things but that’s my fault. With that being said, I’m about to start book 1 (Kiss the Stars).

Great Read

This is book 4 of the Falling Stars series. I have already read book 3, but will not be going to read 1 and 2 with a re-read of 3 and 4.

You can't help falling in love with Rhys and Maggie, two wounded hearts/souls who seem to be brought together. Will they allow the other to help them heal?

Wonderful story.
