Blog Tour Review: Fall From Love by Heather London


Fall From Love by Heather London
Publication date: June 7th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Source: Received an ebook for an honest review and to participate in this blog tour. 

Synopsis:
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 REVIEW
Wow! I still haven't read a lot of New Adult titles, but I'm definitely enjoying the ones I've been reading, and Fall From Love was no exception! I absolutely loved this book! :D

If I had to choose, my favourite part of Fall From Love would be the characters! They were all so fantastic...and even when they weren't in the greatest moods, I couldn't help loving them! I loved Holly and Charter...and boy did I want them to get together! I did enjoy all of their sexual tension though...and the chemistry between them once they finally started talking was fantastic! I also absolutely adored Jenna and Josh, both of their best friends! Jenna was the bestest best friend (yes that additional "bestest" was totally necessary), and I loved her for her pushiness when it came to Holly...and I also loved that she was always there and always tried to cheer Holly up! And Josh was just as awesome with Carter, and I loved him with Jenna...seriously the couples in this book were great!

While it took a while for Carter and Holly to get past the accident with her college sweetheart, I really enjoyed the way that Heather London developed their relationship. It was authentic, and it seemed so real! It wasn't rushed, and it honestly felt like their relationship built at the level that it would in real life, and I really appreciated how their situation could easily happen in everyday life. I also thought that their struggles with pushing their friendship into romantic territory were very realistic, and I thought it was handled perfectly...and while I was frustrated with both Holly and Carter at times for being afraid to make that final step, I completely understood where they were coming from, and it made me root for them even more! All in all though, I was one-hundred percent satisfied with how Fall From Love turned out! As mentioned, I loved the characters! I loved the authenticity of their relationship, and I absolutely loved the way that their romance developed! It was fantastic!

Overall, Fall From Love was a wonderful romance! It's full of characters that you want as your own friends, and that you'll be rooting for right until the very last word! I'd recommend it to fans of authentic romances with amazing characters! Also, if you enjoy seeing characters that have suffered finally get some happiness, I think you'll love this one. :D

  2. I'm glad you liked this one Ambur. It's refreshing when a relationship develops in a normal, naturally way, rather than instalove.
