Fall From Love
Author: Heather London
Publication Date: June 7, 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
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…
Fall From Love is a sweet, unique and emotional addition to the new adult genre. One that I honestly enjoyed from the very first page.
Holly and Carter have both been through a horrific tragedy. One losing the love of their life and the other feeling tremendous guilt for an accident that was in no way his fault.
After months of grieving Holly's amazing best friend finally convinces her to get showered, dressed and get out of their apartment. This first step is exactly what Holly needs to move on.
What Carter needs to finally move on is to make sure that Holly is ok. This could prove to be challenging since Holly can't stand to be in the same room as Carter.
This book really is very sweet and touching with wonderfully written characters. There are definitely moments of sexual tension between Carter and Holly but I loved that there was so much more to this story than just a physical attraction. A beautifully written novel of how two people really can heal each other. Bravo Heather London, I can't wait to read more by you.
