    5 Stars isn't enough! 😭 What a way to start my reading journey for 2019! I'll be back when I pull myself together. "I opened my mouth. And I screamed. No sound came out. It was a silent one. But, in my head, it was the loudest noise I’d ever heard." I'm somewhat together now. And have no idea how to express my feelings about this book! Marni Mann delivers a heartbreaking, harrowing journey of rebuilding a shattered heart! I'm satisfied with the ending, a loss for words, but okay, I think. I already knew what was coming. I felt it in my bones. Which made every word hard to swallow. I choked down every page in awe of Alix's strength and ability to try... It's hard not to spoil the story, yet try to convince you to read it. Two sides to every coin and this one split me in half. "They’d each get a half of me. And that would have to be enough." This is definitely a triangle, but not in a way you would think, more like an experience you'll feel all the way to your toes. This story hit me in the chest with a sledgehammer, all while patching me up, a little at a time. I absolutely loved Alix's journey, albeit tough, but just as inspiring. You'll fall in love with every page. Trust me! A must read for, I can't target a group in fear of spoiling. Just read it!

    Broke my heart

    Unprecedented....Unusual story that just is like an unexpected implosion.  What do you do when your heart just goes through a wringer and you finish aMM book.....nothing! You just wipe your tears, try and breathe. I just finished the book and it's like my rib cage was slashed open, my heart just fell to the floor, shattering in pieces. I need to collect them and try to sort my jigsaw puzzle of emotions. To say that this book is a heart shredder would be an understatement. It's an ode to survivors, to victims, and like in all odes there's grief, there's voids, there's tears and there's goodbyes. Soul shattering and tense, grief ridden and intense, this book needs to be read by every human being. It's not a book, it's a tearful journey. I am definite MM suffered while writing this book, it eroded her senses as much as it did ours. She curled up in a ball on the floor, like we did too. I'm so emotionally dessicated, all the tears that poured forth from my eyes have washed away all my thoughts. So to write this review is a major task. Bear with........ Alix Rayne is in love with two men and is struggling Day & Night who to hold on to and who to let go...( ok I'm crying again) I didn’t know how to fix it. I didn’t know if I could.  I just knew I was completely in love with Dylan Cole, and Smith Reid had made me smile tonight.  If you thought this book was about cheating- you couldn't be more WRONG !!! It's a love story gone horribly awry, it doesn't even let Alix gather any moments. Dylan Cole is the sun of her life, he's warmth, laughter, bliss.....and love So is Smith Reid. He's safety, comfortable, adorable.......and love So why the conflict....apparently there's darkness and thunder fogging Alix's  dreams.  My feet weren’t steady. The earth was tilting beneath me, and I couldn’t find my balance. The air I was sucking in was becoming too thick.  Smith has ghosts too, he's running away from them and in he sees Alix a kindred spirit.  He gives her a gift of space and patience and she gives him hope “We both have our own storms.” “You’re giving me a sunny day?” “You need it.”  He wants to be her shelter in the storm. Her sunny Day It's a very conflicted story, each side has equal amounts of passion, adoration, compassion and abundant love. The end just blew my mind. I COULD NOT ever in my dreams imagine how MM wove such a horrendous disaster in the climax. It's beyond vocalization. NOBODY should have to go through a devastation of this magnitude.  I cried for Alix I cried for Dylan I cried for Smith They and all those around them.....know that my heart weeps for you. (There go my tears again) I was talking to my bestie and we both agreed that give MM ANY genre , ANY trope, ANY topic, she just excels in EVERY BOOK ! This is the same writer who wrote super sexy, SIGNED series, then went super dark with Prisoner series Made a U-turn and set the pages on fire with LOVER and who can forget her Memoirs duet.... She's  a gifted writer, writes from the heart and that seeps through in her words. I could feel her tears, her pain, her grief and I sympathized and empathised.  Whatever she writes, I'll read and devour every word , ALWAYS “Don’t you want to run?” “No, I don’t want to run, Unless it’s toward you, and then my answer is yes.”  Brilliant. Phenomenal. Exceptional 5 ++ stars

    A Must Read Masterpiece!!!

    Trying to pull myself back together, after this emotionally heartwrenching story, is taxing to say the least. The whole story consumes you with it's raw nature, but those last few chapters were so unexpected that I was gutted. All the feelings were felt and so many tears were shed. What a beautiful, original love story. Marni Mann is always giving her all in her books, but this one was just so transcendent. Thank you for this amazing novel! Warning: Read with a box of tissues and a heaping pile of chocolate! xx

    Amazing and Emotional!

    Wow! This book was everything! Alix is a 911 operator who falls in love with two men. Dylan Cole is a dreamy pilot/business owner. He is so perfect for Alix. You can tell how much he loves Alix from his words and his actions. There’s another man in her life named Smith Reid. He is a divorce attorney that had a rough upbringing. He is very interested in getting to know Alix better. This story goes back and forth between the past and the present. We also get to read three points of view. I wasn’t sure what to expect by this story, but I was floored with how it played out. Constantly had me guessing about what was going on and what was going happen. It made me feel so many emotions. I even cried a few times, which I don’t normally do when reading. A good sign that the author has done an amazing job at getting me attached to her characters and made the story feel real. I have read and enjoyed a few other books by Marni Mann, but I must say this one is my favorite. I’d even bet money that this is one of the best books I will read all year. Very well written and heart breakingly beautiful. I will definitely be telling all my reading buddies and anyone else who will listen to read this amazing story.

    Heartbreakingly beautiful!

    Starting out 2019 with this book was a bit devastating for me. It is definitely going in my 'best of' pile for 2019 and this year just started. This story was so different than I'm used to reading from this author. What a surprise! This was a fabulous story as much as the content will allow me to say that, because it also broke my heart. There's so much mystery and intrigue, angst and tension. The books is written from three perspectives and in past and present situations. It's one of those books that you want to flip to the end to know what's going on because you know the author is leading you down a path to discovery, a path you want to run to the end just to know. But I rode out the storm and ended up with an absolutely stunning yet agonizing story. "No, I don't want to run. Unless it's toward you, and then the answer is yes." Because this story is full of surprise and mystery, it's best to go in without too much knowledge about the story. This is definitely a story full of pain and sorrow but bursting with love. True to any romance, there is still angst and love encounters that leave you tingly and breathless. But the end will leave you reeling. I cried my eyes out; full on sob fest here. A love so beautifully heartbreaking. When Ashes Fall is one of the best books of 2019 that you will spend time with. I cannot recommend this book enough.
