I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review via NetGalley.
Maybe we shouldn’t have fallen so fast and so willingly.Review:
Maybe we shouldn’t have moved in together before we went on our first date.
Maybe we should have given our wounds time to heal before we tore each other to shreds.
Maybe we should have never been together.
Houston has kept a devastating secret from Rory since the day he took her into his home. But the tragic circumstances that brought them together left wounds too deep to heal.
Five years after the breakup, Houston and Rory are thrust together by forces beyond their control. And all the resentments and passion return with more intensity than ever.
Once again, Houston is left with a choice between the truth and the only girl he’s ever loved.
I'll be perfectly honest. Since I joined NetGalley in 2011, I have been terrible with keeping up my feedback ratio and when I first joined, I went a little request crazy. I requested way too many books for me to keep up with. That was a rookie mistake that I've learned not to make again. This past year, I've been trying to get to some of these books and, though I haven't done as well as I have planned, I intend on making 2016 the year of NetGalley. I plan on reading as many requested books as I possibly can in the coming year with full intentions of finally getting my ratio to a good percentage (seriously, it's bad).
That being said, The Way We Fall is one of the books I requested a while back and ended up never getting to. Until now, that is. And let me just say that I fully regret never taking the time out of my reading schedule to give this one it's time in the spotlight. This story is absolutely amazing.
For the NetGalley reading challenge I joined this year, my goal was to read a certain number of books. Not a large amount, but enough to force me into reading some that were on the list. It's late November now and I was two books short of meeting my goal so I took a look through my list and decided to pick up The Way We Fall. From the the moment I began reading, I was glued to the story and wanted nothing more than to continue on with it. Every moment that I wasn't reading it, I wanted to be. There was so much heartbreak and yet so much love in this story that it drew me in completely and continually left me needing to find out the answers to Rory and Houston's past.
I honestly could not get enough of this book. It was such an emotional rollercoaster but one that was amazing to be on. The story between these two was absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking that it was impossible not to root for them. The name of the series is very well fitting to the characters and their story and I honestly cannot wait to get a chance to continue on with it.
Such a gorgeous story. If you like a good romance with a side of emotion, I highly recommend The Way We Fall.
