Author: Ashley Drew
Publication: March 1st 2016 (self-published)
Genre: New Adult, Romance
She didn’t expect to fall for her best friend.
He was always waiting to catch her.
Corinne Bennett lives in the moment. Whether she’s skydiving out of an airplane, or setting off on the road to anywhere, she’s ready to dive into the next adventure. That is, if best friend and always-by-the-book Nicholas Kelley doesn’t put his foot down on her wild stunts first.
When Corinne gives in to her growing feelings for Nicholas the summer before their freshman year of college, she takes the ultimate risk, making this one adventure he has longed to explore with her.
But the moment they take that irrevocable leap, a shocking revelation blindsides Corinne, exposing her vulnerabilities, baring her fears, and shattering her beliefs about love. With their future—and most importantly, their friendship—now clouded in doubt, she must decide if love is really worth the risk.
Because when it comes to love, you never stop falling.
Shelf it on Goodreads!
I received an electronic review copy of this book from the author herself in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion.
This book left me in a whirlwind of emotions. Ever since I saw the cover, I completely fell in love with it. I never thought that I will also fall in love with the book. This is the third New Adult book that I read and all of them haven’t disappointed me. This is why I’m enjoying that genre.
Never Stop Falling is about a girl named Corinne Bennett who didn’t look at his best friend, Nicholas Kelley, as a lover ever. However, this all started to change when she realizes how her best friend looks at her, and she finds herself falling in love with him as they did things that they never expected to happen (not what you think it is).
“Love is beautiful and strange; it can make the heart complete and whole and yet, it’s also capable of smashin’ it into a million pieces.”
This book falls under two viewpoints from Corinne and Nicholas wherein I enjoyed inasmuch as I thought I would. I love reading in both of their perspectives. Both characters were fun and easy to read, and both did not fall into the dark pit of cliché. They were realistic and true to themselves and that’s what I love about this book.
What made this book better than expected is its climax. When I reached it, I was nerve-racking, mentally biting my nails. I didn’t know what will happen next because as the book goes on, it gets completely better and better. The consistency of this book is amazing. I love consistency in a book, and this one deemed to be a worthy one.
“Love is full of risks. Losing the person you love is one of them, and you have to be willing to take it.”
Throughout the book, I surely enjoyed reading the book, but I somehow find the book quite lacking, and I’m not completely satisfied. There’s just something that the story needs to be better. A twist or something huge of an event that will make my jaw drop or something. It will definitely make me love the book more.
Okay, I love this book, and I have no more reason why you should read this book. It’s amazing, and you need to read it. my review may not have justified the beauty that is this book, but I really recommend this book. It truly deserves more attention and hype.
4 swords for making NA an amazing genre for me!
