The Fall Up

 I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.

As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.

Until he found me.

Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.

But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.

Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?

Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

My Review

Fair warning when you pick up this you need to find your inner strength and hang in there, The Fall Up is so worth the emotional journey, you too will not fall but fly to new beginnings with these characters Sam & Levee.

Best thing you get both POV in this story and I think it needed it as they have their past and present and future stories to tell – can I say I loved the ending chapters.

This started well for me, I found some of the initial chapters hard as they were depressing to see such a obviously vibrant young lady struggle however by a third of the way through you are so invested and when they combine they simply combust with emotion, passion and fragility.  The way the author in one paragraph had me gasping and feeling such sorrow and then one of the characters can turn the moment around and give us humour to release that pent up emotion you are carrying as a reader was wonderful.

Two creative souls that have gifts but have both travelled down dark roads and find that each other repairs that shattered part of their soul and gives them the strength to look forward and not behind.  They test each other at significant points in this story and they push past each others barriers, it was not an easy road to their happy ever after.

Devon was a surprising character for me, I did not pick that outcome and I was proud of how Levee stood up for herself and what can I say about Henry, he had me laughing in so many moments he was such an incredible friend for Levee.

Again this is a story about anxiety, depression, suicide but also about family, friends, humour, love and new beginnings – it was a journey I am so glad I have taken.
