Synopsis (from Goodreads)
From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a twisted and passionate love story that pushes the boundaries of loyalty.
Maybe we shouldn’t have fallen so fast and so willingly.
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.
The Way We Fall is the first book in The Story of Us series, which follows the tumultuous love story of Rory and Houston. The sequel, The Way We Break, will be released Spring 2015.
What I thought
I have no problem admitting that I enjoy a good guilty pleasure read every once in a while. And as a steamy, angsty new adult romance, The Way We Fall perfectly fit the bill.
Although certainly nothing earth shattering, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed Cassia Leo’s writing, given that I downloaded this for free on my Nook. I was pretty hooked to the story. Some things didn’t sit perfectly well with me, but I was able to put that aside & just enjoy the story. I will say that this is more of a novella-length book & the ending brings no resolution, it just sets up for the next book. That doesn’t bother me, just be forewarned if that’s something that bothers you.
Like I said, I really enjoyed this book, from all the sexy scenes to all the drama & angst. I will definitely be reading the next book! If you are able to enjoy a new adult romance without getting too critical, definitely pick this up–it makes for a great escape!
