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

This is my first book by Amie Knight and I’m really glad that I took a chance on a new to me author.
Beneath His Stars is a star crossed romance that gives you hope and melts your heart. Two people who stereotypically look like they shouldn’t be together fight for the love of their lives.
Livingston Montgomery (great name by the way) comes from money but she’s far from the stereotype that people think she is. She currently lives with her stepmother and is forced to do all the things a Southern Belle should. She takes etiquette classes and interacts with others as expected but she really wants nothing other than to remember her father and follow her dreams.
The one place that reminds her of her father brings her the bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Adam Nova is covered in tattoos and smokes. He’s received as the bad boy but once these two really get to know each other, it’s clear just how perfect they are for each other. Astronomy binds them together in a way that no one else will get. However, fate steps in and these two are forced to fight harder than they could ever image for each other.
I will admit that in the beginning, I thought the writing was a bit choppy for my taste. However, that quickly changed and I thought it flowed well. I’ve always loved a story that has one thing that connects the characters together but this one has a few of them, which helps spark that connection even more.
Overall, I enjoyed Beneath His Stars and am anxiously waiting for it’s conclusion. I’m invested and ready to know what will happen with Adam and Liv.
