Fall to You is the second book in the Here and Now series. It is not a stand-alone and is intended to be read following Lost in Me. Hanna’s story concludes in book three, All for This.
Torn between two men…
When I woke up after the accident, I couldn’t remember anything from the last year—including my relationship with Max Hallowell or anything about Nate Crane. Now my memories are returning, but instead of answering my questions, they’re leaving me with more.
The man who broke my heart and wants to be my future…
Max is all I ever wanted, and now he wants to marry me. He’ll do everything he can to fill my life with love, family, and security. I need those things now more than ever. But can I trust him?
The man who stole my heart and wants to let me go…
Nate never made me promises, and I never asked him to. I’d been on the rebound, looking for a distraction, and he made me feel beautiful and wanted when I needed to feel those things most. He says he has to let me go, but what if I can’t let go of him?
With every revelation and every passing day, I feel more like Alice down the rabbit hole. I’m falling. Who will catch me?
I don’t even know where to begin with this review because this book was so freaking amazing. I was like a cartoon character, keeping my eyelids up with matchsticks because I had to finish it. Yup, I had a “Just one more chapter” moment after EVERY chapter of this book. It was the only sustenance I needed – nothing else mattered – and it satisfied every one of my cravings.
I was Team Nate all through book 1, but I will admit that I was torn between Team Nate and Team Max with this book. Max redeemed himself a million times over, and he really and truly loved Hanna with everything he had. I still loved Nate, but this story showed moments Hanna shared with each of them that just melted my heart that it was too difficult to choose a winner.
I loved how Ryan swung between the before and after, giving me an in depth look at events that came to the surface in book one. She also added new memories, and my heart broke for Hanna because she was also torn between Max and Nate. Remembering the love she shared with both of them, and the pivotal moment that took place just before her accident, that all important decision she had to make. I loved piecing together Hanna’s life to the point where she finally realized who she really chose.
This book was an emotional rollercoaster and it has left me broken. That ending!!! OMG!! No! No! No! Lexi Ryan, how could you??!! Kill me now or give me the next book, because I’m a tortured, emotional mess and I don’t think I can wait until August for its release.
About the Author
Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I'm not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids--a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I'm feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I'm really, really slow) or do yoga. Don't worry, I'm always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.
