    5++++++ 'I loved this book so much' stars

    5++++++ 'I loved this book so much' stars I love the moment you begin to read a book and realise that you are feeling completely connected to the story. When this happens you just know that you were meant to read this book in this moment. That is how I can sum up my experience of reading The Fall Up. This was a very personal journey for me. The things that Sam had gone through with his own immediate family are a mirror image to what has happened in my own family. It was quite surreal actually. On top of that is that we are currently working our way through our own daughters struggle with depression and I could totally relate to the way Sam reacted when he met Levee and why he did. We go through it every day too. I guess that was why I really connected with this story. It wasn't the only reason though. This book poked and prodded every emotion in my heart and head. I felt everything. I loved all the humour and open banter between Levee and Sam, I laughed out loud so many times as these two wonderful characters fused from friendship to loveship. 'He wasn't a magical fix. I knew that the free fall was still waiting for me at the end of the night. But I didn't feel like I was plummeting when I was with him.' - Levee They each had their own demons to fight. Sam is dealing with a loss that he still struggles with daily. The cynic would say that, this is why he connects with Levee, out of a need to appease his inner turmoil. I'm sure there is a little bit of that going on but to say that is the only reason is a big discredit to Levee. She is this beautiful, compassionate person who, already in such a small amount of time, will definitely be leaving her mark on the world. These two come from completely different backgrounds but friendship and love know no boundaries and there are no barriers that they cannot overcome together. I absolutely LOVED this story, it will go down as one of my favourites of 2015.

    This was an absolutely beautiful story!

    This was an absolutely beautiful story! There is no way that any review can honestly do it justice, you just need to read it! This is my first Aly Martinez book and it definitely won’t be my last! It deals with a really emotional , heart wrenching topic but the author has done an awesome job in writing it. There is no un-necessary fluff or drama thrown in and I absolutely love that. Overall, it’s a very sweet, light-hearted, funny story that will leave you with a smile on your face and a warm heart. The characters are fun, lovable and down to earth and together, they’re on fire with a bit of sweet. Both are a bit “broken” when they meet but with each other’s help, they start to heal. They bring out the best in each other and the fun, witty banter between them will put a huge smile on your face throughout the majority of the book. ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review.

    Amazing from start to finish

    This was my first book by Aly Martinez EVER, so I went in blind, anticipating what I was about to read. Why haven't I read a book by Aly Martinez before?? I'm really not to sure, but after living through "The Fall Up" I will definitely be reading MORE. From the opening line "It was raining. Isn't that the way all great love stories start??" until the final words in this book I was enthralled, I couldn't put it down. Oh the subject within was a touchy, emotional, & some what tabboo, then the characters portraying this touchy subject, made reading it an easier process than what it should have been. Levee & Sam, one who's seen the struggle knows the signs & steps in to help.... the other who's so far in the dark, that the possiblity of there ever being a light, comes has a shock. Then you have the amazing secondary characters aswell, either steaming up the pages or adding some tension between Sam & Levee (not that they needed any help). I'm not going to ruin this for you, you'll need to read it, devour it, to know exactly what happens. I laughed & cried, the emotions where all over the place for me. So for my first Aly Martinez book, I must say it was beautiful, sweet, wonderful, captivating.... you get the point!!

    Fantastic

    Sam might be my favorite bbf ever. The main characters were believable and likeable. My only complaint is that it was pretty short.

    Love doesn't mend everything but it sure helps.

    Levee and Sam are two strangers that met on the same bridge every night. Good story that doesn't disappoint and handles mental health in a believable way. Love doesn't mend everything but it sure helps.
