How A Star Falls by Amber Stokes

About the Book

Sweet NA Contemporary Romance Novella

How does a star fall?
Quickly. Completely. Unexpectedly.

Derrick Knolane escapes to Trinidad Head most evenings, avoiding his apartment and planning for the day he'll break free of Humboldt County. Working in a music store might be fine for a while, but it's far from the goal he had in mind when he got his college degree. Not to mention the fact that his roommate is a jerk and his family won't stop trying to run his life.

Then Brielle falls into his world.

She claims to be a star. Not from Hollywood, but from heaven. He thinks she's crazy. Certainly delusional. Yet, he can't just leave her alone on the cliffs. So he takes her home.

And his whole world falls apart.

A heartfelt and fanciful contemporary romance novella, How a Star Falls explores the uncertain season of new adulthood and shows that sometimes the worst inconveniences make for the best miracles of all.

  This was such a sweet novella! I enjoyed both of the characters in the book. Derrick was a likeable character, knowing his life choices were getting him nowhere he seemed ready for a change. Meeting Brielle seemed to bring out the "man" in him. Rather than staying in his man-child ways he started making choices that were much more adult and mature. Brielle seemed a bit mysterious throughout the story, but I enjoyed her spontaneity. She seemed a bit lost, which made her perfect for Derrick. How A Star Falls is a delightful story of two young people finding themselves and each other and moving to adulthood together.
