The Way We Fall

The Way We Fall Summary

An instant USA Today bestseller! 

Five pages...
A letter holding a secret buried for more than five years...
A secret neither of them wanted to know.
Will the truth tear them apart… again?

I’ve loved my best friend's brother, Houston Cavanaugh, since I was eleven years old. But my friendship with Hallie Cavanaugh meant too much to me to risk taking a chance with Houston.

Until one snowy afternoon, Houston and I find ourselves thrust together by the grief of Hallie’s death. Our passionate and toxic relationship will test the boundaries of our loyalty to each other and to Hallie’s memory, ultimately, leaving us in ruins.

Five years later, Houston and I are forced to work together opening up a new wine bar, and, to my horror, Houston doesn’t recognize me.

I haven’t changed much, but he certainly has.

He’s still as sexy as he was five years ago when he broke my heart, but time, grief, and a loveless marriage have broken him.

The moment Houston recognizes me, all our memories and long-buried passion come rushing to the surface. Can we rewrite our story with a happy ending this time? Or will his secrets be our unraveling again?

Book Reviews


What the...5 star

This book was excellent and very confusing. If you are looking for a sweet story you will NOT find it here. This story is filled with twists and turns, anguish, and turmoil. It’s very well written and addicting but really not what I signed up for when I read the preface. I did not really like any of the characters because they all reminded me of the worsts parts of myself which was why the book was so consuming. The author really takes you on a roller coaster. I’ll need a few weeks before I can read the next one...55


First One in a Long Time5 star

I remember reading this one adult romance book I got from somewhere where you trade a toy for a book… I was about 12. In pieces, there’s a cowboy that stumbles on his late biological father’s house. He was greeted by a beautiful long black haired heroine and an arrogant greasy antagonist that threatens the protagonist’s life, the rights of the land, and the woman’s heart - or something of the sort. I’ve never would’ve guessed that the same type of heartthrob thrill would have me remember the feeling I get from reading.55


Read in a day!5 star

Yes4 star

I thoroughly loved all the characters! Even the background characters stood out. This book made me ache for my lost soulmate. This book made me feel pain for the characters. Made me feel happy for them and sad. Well thought out and I can’t wait to read the next book. I loved how it went back and forth between the present and past. Between Houston and Rory. I like how she has ambitions, but also shows that she is like every one else. A hopeless romantic. I hated that Houston cheated on his wife, but this was very realistic.45

By cassia Leo It starts out really slow by the end you want to know what happens but then you find out there is no end yet ugh! It is an intriguing story but to much back story before you get to the good parts! Bookbub55

Hard for me to get why Rory would even be thinking of this guy after he left her after a such a devastating event in her life. Then he goes off and gets married an realizes he is not happy with his wife. Hopefully the story gets better35
