  • Strong & Beautiful You

    3.5 stars CW: (from the author’s website) - Intentional changes in exercise and nutrition habits by a main character (that do not include dieting) including on-page reflections on exercise and eating habits. - Off-page alcohol and drug abuse of a side character. - The heroine participates in brief and off-page over-exercise. - Reference to the eating disorder of a side character. I’m struggling a bit to write this review because parts of the novel worked so well for me and the emotions were so relatable, but other parts left me frustrated and annoyed. What I enjoyed: - The author did a fantastic job discussing and showing Britta’s vulnerabilities and thoughts about her body. Her struggles and feelings were very relatable and I loved that the focus was on Britta being strong and loving her body and not on diet or losing weight. - The banter and build up between her and Wes. I’m a huge fan of back and forth emails and texts in romance and I loved how playful they were with each other and how their connection evolved. - Britta. Her character arc was a great one and though she stumbled at times, I was always rooting for her. The Body Bae pieces at the start of many of her chapters were my favorite. - The epilogue. Perfect way to bring everything together and left me with a huge smile on my face. - The Fastest Way To Fall featured some of my favorite tropes: friends to lovers, forced proximity, epistolary romance, caretaker, there’s only one bed, and slow burn. What didn't quite work: - The miscommunications. I’m just not a fan of lying by omission or issues that could be addressed and solved together if everyone would just be honest. I understand why Wes and Britta were hesitant to come clean, but this plot point lasted much too long. - Wes. I wanted to love him so badly, but boy did he make it hard sometimes! He was such a sweetheart, but he was so hot and cold. I was glad Britta called him out on it before moving forward, but I really needed to see him fight for her and what he wanted. My heart broke as he struggled under the weight of his family and how lost he felt professionally. I think it just felt like there was too much going on with him and I would have preferred seeing him come into his own the same way that Britta did. - Kelsey. Her character felt very one dimensional and her interactions with Wes grated on me. After understanding how emotionally abusive their relationship had been, however, it made more sense why he took so long to rebuff her. The professional drama at the end resolved very quickly and made the ending feel rushed. Overall, I enjoyed The Fastest Way To Fall, but I sadly didn’t love it. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*
