    Fantastic

    Another powerful story from Jessica Scott that gives us insight on some of the issues our veterans deal with when returning to civilian life. This series/book is NA and gives us the story of two college students drawn to each other against all odds. Josh is lost. The only things that seem to get through to him are alcohol and fighting. He's attending classes but other than that getting into the whole college scene just isn't something he can do so he spends his nights in a bar. Abby has her own issues to deal with. She comes from an abusive home and finally being away from her stepfather's violent tendencies is freeing. Then why is she so drawn to Josh who has violent written all over him??? This is a captivating story and one I couldn't put down. I highly recommend it.

    Love can conquer all

    After facing years of abuse with her stepfather and then an ex-boyfriend, Abby was determined it would not happen to her again. So she is very apprehensive on romance and wants to find someone normal. Josh had two places he went to all the time to find solace in his life, the gym where he would run himself ragged and a local bar run by a fellow ex-Soldier. The later caused more problems because it seemed like drinking was the only way he could make it through the night and face the college preppies next day. One evening after being kicked out of the bar yet again for brawling, he stumbled across Abby needing help dealing with some guys who do not understand the word no. While they can both feel the immediate attraction, neither is ready for it, they go their separate ways before it goes too far. Little did they realize that it would not be the only time they met, it happened again in class. Josh took the chance to sit by her and she did not have a problem with it. She seems to be able to calm him down during class when a fellow student keeps getting a rise out of him. But both have demons in their past and to keep on going they would have to work them out. In order to do that, they would need to do it together, which means they have to tell each other everything, absolutely everything! Once again Jessica Scott has slammed a home run with this book. I will admit it took me longer to read this one that usual but that was because it was so intense. Sometimes I had to put it down for a bit before returning to finish. But then it was over and I couldn’t believe it. PTSD is something anyone can have to do, anywhere. Everyone deals with it in their own way because they believe that is their only choice as there is no one there to help, especially those in the military. Not always, there is support, you just need to find the right person to help you out. I received an ARC for an honest review

    Another amazing book by Jessica Scott

    Break My Fall is the second book in the Falling series but you don’t need to have read that book first; this is a stand-alone story and there is no cliffhanger. This book just about ripped my heart out. It’s darker than most of Jessica’s other stories but, like her other books, it seems so real and believable. As I’ve said before, I think her Army service brings real credibility to her stories. Josh has recently left the Army and is enrolled in a university “where the poor kids drive Mercedes and the really rich ones have drivers” and he feels out of place. Abby has dark skin and curly hair; she’s working her way through school and feels equally out of place. The two meet when Josh sees Abby being harassed by a couple of jerks as she walks home one night. Abby: "Are you my white knight in shining armor?" Josh: "I'm nobody's hero." Josh is haunted by his experiences in war. He hates that he misses the violence of it and feels like a deviant because of it. While the doctors have told him there is nothing physically wrong with him, nothing everything is working right. He can’t imagine that anyone would want him, he’s too broken. Abby has scars, both physical and emotional, from her childhood. She is still reeling from a recent breakup; she doesn’t want to start a new relationship. When Josh rescues her she doesn’t want to be attracted to him but she can’t seem to help herself. This book deals with a side of war that we don’t read about in the papers and, even though this is fiction, it feels “real” to me. Josh’s story is heartbreaking but Jessica Scott tells it well and I was invested in his character right from the beginning. Abby’s story is also compelling and how she and Josh navigate a relationship around both of their issues was a story I didn’t want to put down. Warning: this story contains some violent scenes and alcohol abuse. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my review. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****

    Beautiful, emotional read

    I’m a huge fan of Jessica Scott and was super excited to get a chance to read her new book early. I always know when I start a Jessica Scott book, I’m in for a very emotional ride, and Break My Fall was no different. Both Josh and Abby have some history of violence in their lives; Abby from her mom’s boyfriend and Josh from fighting in a war. I almost felt like their souls were lost and lucky enough to find one another. There was nothing easy about the relationship between Abby and Josh, but I think I liked them better as a couple for the struggles they had to overcome to be together. While I can’t imagine how hard it must be for a soldier to return to civilian life, Ms. Scott has done an amazing job over an over again sharing the struggles and the emotions involved with going from soldier to civilian. We get to see not only Josh’s struggles in Break My Fall, but his other friend’s struggles as well. I’ll honestly say I want to know more about both Eli and Caleb so I can understand what they are going through as well. Break My Fall is a very emotional read which pulled every emotion from me while I was reading it. I also kept thinking about the characters long after I finished reading. I love a book that not only pulls me in, but keeps me thinking about it long after I’ve finished reading.
