The writing will draw you in after only a few pages and have you finishing the book in one sitting.
There is the perfect amount of angst and romance to keep you hooked. I loved how their relationship unfolded so we could see these amazing characters grow in ways you never expected.
I would suggest picking up a copy asap, you will not be disappointed.

One of my absolute favorites of this series. Randall is a character ive been wait to read for awhile now ever since Welcome to your life came out. I was so curious to his story given we knew it wasn't easy for him. Amelia was another character i was excited to read. My heart hurt for her and what she was put through but in the end i love how she stood her ground with her past and didn't let them get to her. Randall grew so much in this book as a character. He was already somewhat acting as a adu ...more

If you’ve read Welcome to Your Life, Ways to Go, of From This Moment you’ve already been introduced to Amelia and Randall. Amelia is Tonya’s cousin and Randall is one of Jake’s friends. Though, if you haven’t read any of the other books in the series you can still enjoy Shoot Down the Stars and not be confused.

People who believe you can't read a great romance and it not have erotic scenes have not had the opportunity to experience true writers like this author. This was an emotional read filled with angst and regret and a whole lot of growing up. He had been holding things down since his mom left and his dad hit a tailspin and never recovered. She had learned the hard way that people are jerks and had gone to live with her relatives to recover. These two get to grow up and along the way learn some new ...more

Shoot Down the Stars is another sweet and beautiful story in the Taking Chances series.

Here we get Amelia, a girl who used to have a happy life and personality until she is betrayed by those she called friends. We also meet Randall, who has a hard life at home.

Together they discover is possible to trust and love again. Katrine gives us a HEA with no drama as usual, that's why I love this stories so much.

Amelia fears getting attached to a guy after she experienced heartbreak in her home town so she moves in with her aunt and uncle to build herself back up.

Randall has a tough life at home playing parent to his dad who had been on a downward spiral since Randall's mom left them when he was a kid.

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are very likeable and the story was well written.

This is the 5th book I've read written by Katrina Marie; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

This book was good. It pulled me in right away and I had a desire to keep going back to it. It was a little predictable in my option, but all in all a good read.

Couples are spinning around the floor, celebrating the marriage of the girl I used to have a crush on in high school. But she isn’t the one capturing my attention. No, it’s the girl I haven’t seen in years.
Amelia, Tonya’s cousin, used to spend the summers here when we were kids. She was so full of life, and always bouncing around like a damn cartoon princess. She saw the world through rose colored glasses while I saw it for the shit hole it actuall

I LOVED RANDALL AND AMELIA SO MUCH!! These two MAY just be my favorite couple yet!!! I adored how more than anything these two just genuinely wanted someone to love and want them, and that pulled at my heart strings something fierce. I am a strong lover of emotional books and this one was so perfectly emotional. And by emotional, I don't mean sad or sappy, I mean it has to have every emotion in the book!

These two both were going through so much when they met, they both thought they didn't "need"

Started out slow but as to story continued the connection between the main characters got better until the hiding of emotions and what’s wrong got in their way and caused them to have problems. For me this felt more like a YA romance then adult romance.
