Reseña del editor
Keegan Mansfield is a loner. A bilateral amputee athlete with only one goal; to qualify for the Rio Olympic Games. Every move he makes is towards this dream, and even though there are forces trying to stop him, he moves forward because there's too much at stake. Although he has the determination and the will to succeed, there are ingredients missing from his life that he so desperately needs. Truth, love and happiness. When team mate Conrad Smith saves him from a violent incident, both embark on a journey of love that will lead to the truth about Keegan's past. But the happiness their love brings will last for only a moment, for, as much as Conrad believes in Keegan, and loves him, he also breaks Keegan's heart. And, just as things seemed as bad as they could get, tragedy strikes. Will it bring them closer, as one, for neither can live without the other? As time passes, Keegan learns an important lesson, that trust is not a game, trust is as real as day and night, as real as the wind. He learns, through tragedy, that Rio comes with a sacrifice. He learns that true love thrives on togetherness. And hope is all that he can lean on.

This is a lovely love story that will bring you laughter and tears! It's a must read.
Stars Fall is a compelling one athlete's strive to realize his dreams while faced with adversity.
This is the story of bilateral amputee Keegan Mansfield.
His story is incredibly well written, written with compassion and feeling. Even able-bodied readers can identify with Keegan feel the joy of his triumphs and his pain at betrayal.
Would I have Keegan's courage? I don't know. I would like to think I would, but I just don't know.
Keegan is a very complex, intense, driven character full of determination. While not quite as complex, the supporting characters are believable. Just looking at the cover art you can see his determination in his eyes.
The story itself is, as I said, compelling. I read the entire novel in one sitting, only taking bathroom and meal breaks.
Not being able to view an excerpt from Stars Fall, I have to admit I had some trepidation as I've bought several books without reading an excerpt and disliked the book. However, the blurb intrigued me so I took a chance and bought the book. I'm very glad I did. Stars Fall is an incredible book.
If you only buy one book this year, you must buy Stars Fall. On a scale of 1 to 5 I gladly give it a 5.
I thought some of the writing was pure brilliance,but some of it also seemed robotic.
I found a few things contradictory which was confusing & one of the main story lines did NOT make any sense to me.
I get that's it's fiction but I kind of want it partially believable & too me it just wasn't. Even though this part was explained well enough it just didn't ring true to me.
I feel like there was too much squeezed into one book & as such too many things were brushed aside or concluded with a rather unsatisfactory sentence that didn't give enough closure.
It has so much potential, some fantastic writing but overall there were too many things fell short.
The relationship between Keegan and Conrad flows and their feelings showed all the time. But sometimes it was difficult to follow ... Some errors in the narrative makes it that way
The compassion of the story too sometimes presented difficult to keep up with the book.
If you want to read an interesting story and want to understand the dynamics of the double amputees you could like the book.
