BLOG TOUR- 5 STAR READ- THE WAY WE FALL by CASSIA LEO





The Way We Fall Synopsis:
From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a twisted and passionate love story that pushes the boundaries of loyalty. 

Maybe we shouldn’t have fallen so fast and so willingly.



Maybe we shouldn’t have moved in together before we went on our first date.

Maybe we should have given our wounds time to heal before we tore each other to shreds.

Maybe we should have never been together.

Houston has kept a devastating secret from Rory since the day he took her into his home. But the tragic circumstances that brought them together left wounds too deep to heal.

Five years after the breakup, Houston and Rory are thrust together by forces beyond their control. And all the resentments and passion return with more intensity than ever.

Once again, Houston is left with a choice between the truth and the only girl he’s ever loved.


The Way We Fall is the first book in The Story of Us series, which follows the tumultuous love story of Rory and Houston. The sequel, The Way We Break, will be released Spring 2015.

MY REVIEW
***
"Even when we want to forget, our scars have a way of reminding us where we've been"

These were the first words I read as I commenced this book. These are words that resonated deeply with me, and I suspect to any of you who have been wounded on Love's battlefields.
They say physical scars heal and fade away but its the ones left on our hearts that tend to remain long after the battle is over. And thats how it was for Rory & Houston.

Brought together under tragic circumstances, they are left scarred and broken but in the midst of their pain they experience love's transformative power, 
but there are things that Rory is unaware of, secrets that Houston knows, deep down, 
will eventually tear them apart. But their love is just... beautiful, and real and true.

"I was eighteen when I got lost in Houston, and in him I found myself. They say love is just two souls recognising each other. With Houston and me it was more like two souls staring into a mirror, my left hand aligned with his right, our hearts skipping a beat at the same moment, our lungs choking on the same noxious air, our scars as perfectly aligned as mountains and fault lines. If ever two souls were perfectly right and perfectly wrong for each other it would be us. Us"

As I devoured this book, I found myself constantly wondering if Cassia Leo was actually writing from experience, because the words were so effectual, and so genuine that my own scars were threatening to burst open, and ultimately thats what I love in my books.
I wanna feel the feels, all of them, the angst, the joy, the sadness all of it!
Cassia's books just get better and better and her writing in this one in particular is stunning!
I cannot wait for book two in this series. I am totally hooked with Rory & Houston's story.
I can feel a HEA coming and I believe it will be SPECTACULAR!
You guys this book is HOS mandatory reading!

Cassia Leo Bio:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cassia Leo loves her coffee, chocolate, and margaritas with salt. When she’s not writing, she spends way too much time watching old reruns of Friends and Sex and the City. When she’s not watching reruns, she’s usually enjoying the California sunshine or reading – sometimes both.
