Fall From Love by Heather London
Publication date: June 7th 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…
5 of 5 Fall From Love
Fall From Love is an incredible read and a gem of a find. I have to say that I love love YA but NA is breaking out in the genre field and I love it. I love to read about college because those were the best years for most. College is a new experience where you learn to live, love and everything in between. In Fall From Love we meet Holly and Carter. They have a story to tell and it is a sad story but out of that sadness comes happiness and love.
Holly is getting ready to graduate from college without her college sweetheart the love of her life because he was taken from her in a mountaineering accident and she is left to pick up the pieces of life and move on. But Holly can't seem to heal from her grief because it grips her so hard she is left in a perpetual state of grief wanting him back so bad. As she begins to come out of her grief shell she starts talking to someone else who is grieving the loss of his friend. When Holly sees Carter all the memories come back and flood her heart. She tries to avoid him but she soon realizes that he is grieving just like her.
Carter is trying so hard to move on from the accident but he can't. He carries the guilt of killing someone with him and all his friends keep telling him that it was not his fault but he feels guilty and that guilt is eating at him. Adam was not only Holly's true love but Carters friend and it hurts like hell to lose someone. But there is a bright side for Carter and that is every time he is around Holly he starts to heal but one secret about the night of the accident can bring all of that down. What will happen when the secret comes out will Carter lose Holly for good? Will Holly be able to deal with the last piece of her grief?
This is such a heart felt read that I loved it to pieces because it is about loss, love and redemption. Can Holly and Carter heal and move on?
