Review: Fall From Love by Heather London

Published May 21st 2013
ISBN: 1484805313 (ISBN13: 9781484805312)
edition language: English 
 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…

*gifted arc from author in exchange for an honest review*

This wasn't a rock your world love that will leave your body shivering. It was a love that helps them discover that ,sometimes ,to fall in love you have to forgive yourself.

After the death of her one and only, Holly sinks into a black hole that even her best friend cannot pull her out of. Carter feels responsible for the death of Adam, Holly's boyfriend. When Holly's friend starts to date Carter's room mate, Carter and Holly are forced together, much to Holly's dismay and Carter's joy.

As the guilt continues to eat up Cater, he and Holly are quietly falling in love. Both of them deny the obvious.

“I realized that life doesn't work that way-that just because you have dreams and make plans, it doesn't mean that they will come true.” 

Then the secret that everybody has been keeping from Holly for so long finally breaks loose and threatens to tear them (Carter and Holly) apart forever.

Fall From Love is tragically cute. Carter and Holly have been through horrible incidents time after time, Carter more than Holly. He can't seem to catch a break.

Friends...just friends? Poor, crazy, idiotic, guilty child. They just don't know what to do with themselves! I agree with the Best Friends. Choking on the sexual tension. *gasps for air*

Through (almost) the entire book I wanted to shove Carter and Holly's faces together. They were just so.... broken but they made each other better.

Fall From Love
isn't just about finding the person you're meant to be with. It's also about discovering that maybe the person you've been looking for has been there all along.
