Struggling to put her life back together after a tragic mountaineering accident kills her college sweetheart, twenty-one-year-old Holly Treadwell is trying to set aside her grief, forge ahead in school, and find herself again.

When Carter Hansen, a guy who brings back horrible memories from the night of the accident, finds his way back into her life, Holly’s unsure if she should let him in. He terrifies her in more ways than one and invokes feelings in her that she thought were buried forever. Regardless of her fears, she knows she must face him in order for her heart to heal.

Everyone tells Carter that what happened on the mountain that night was just a terrible accident, but even then, he can’t help but carry around the guilt and is unable to forgive himself. He’s drawn to Holly and being near her helps ease his conscience and gives him the release he needs.

As Holly and Carter’s relationship grows, they begin to realize that the more time they spend with one another, the more their wounds begin to heal—her grief and his guilt. But when Holly learns the details about the night of the accident—what everyone has been keeping from her—it will rip open old wounds and tear apart what they’ve both worked so hard to overcome…

MY THOUGHTS


The story opens with the death of Holly Treadwell's boyfriend, Adam. and progresses with her trying to escape the grief. Holly was definitely a character that developed well and someone who was easy to connect with. At the beginning of the story, Holly was a mess that wouldn't even step out of her apartment. But I commend her for stating that she needed to continue her life and proceeded to do so.

One of my favorite parts of Fall From Love was how important friendship played in the story. Holly was never let alone to deal with her grief thanks to her friend Jenna. It was noticeable from the start that these two would do anything for each other. Even when Holly was nothing but mean, Jenna wouldn't budge in helping her friend. Jenna was such a fun character, and definitely one of my favorite character to read about.

Carter Hansen's story entwined with Holly's on the night of Adam's death. It was Carter who held her as she broke down in the hospital. Before that night, Holly and Carter had never met, but their friendship slowly grows when Holly finally lets him in. Their relationship is very much so a friendship turned romance. The only problem I had was how they'd dodge around each other with both afraid to make the first move. Besides that, the romance actually felt natural with its gradual development.

I've been wary of the "new adult" genre since it has either been a hit or miss, but Fall From Love was definitely a hit. Fall From Love was a quick and enjoyable read with the set of characters and great pace.

  1. Aww yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, Vy. It seems like a really realistic contemporary, with a great friendship and a slow-building romance. I haven't read a new adult in a while, so I think I'll have to pick this one up! Awesome review. :)
