APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Rory Charles and Houston Cavanaugh always shared a magnetic attraction, but their college romance fell apart after the death of a friend and an accidental pregnancy. Years later, Rory and Houston meet up again and find that the spark between them is as strong as ever, despite Houston being married. The Way We Fall isn't your typical New Adult romance—it tackles dark issues like suicide, abortion and infidelity. The first book in Cassia Leo’s Story of Us series left of us wondering if true love is always worth the pain it can cause.
I thoroughly loved all the characters! Even the background characters stood out. This book made me ache for my lost soulmate. This book made me feel pain for the characters. Made me feel happy for them and sad. Well thought out and I can’t wait to read the next book. I loved how it went back and forth between the present and past. Between Houston and Rory. I like how she has ambitions, but also shows that she is like every one else. A hopeless romantic. I hated that Houston cheated on his wife, but this was very realistic.
This book was excellent and very confusing. If you are looking for a sweet story you will NOT find it here. This story is filled with twists and turns, anguish, and turmoil. It’s very well written and addicting but really not what I signed up for when I read the preface. I did not really like any of the characters because they all reminded me of the worsts parts of myself which was why the book was so consuming. The author really takes you on a roller coaster. I’ll need a few weeks before I can read the next one...
First One in a Long Time
I remember reading this one adult romance book I got from somewhere where you trade a toy for a book… I was about 12. In pieces, there’s a cowboy that stumbles on his late biological father’s house. He was greeted by a beautiful long black haired heroine and an arrogant greasy antagonist that threatens the protagonist’s life, the rights of the land, and the woman’s heart - or something of the sort. I’ve never would’ve guessed that the same type of heartthrob thrill would have me remember the feeling I get from reading.
