Blog Tour | The Fear Of Falling #review #giveaway

It was definitely a good weekend for reading there was no way I’d be doing anything else with all the wind and rain outside my window. I’m kicking off the week with a review for The Fear Of Falling, and if you have a penchant for an Amazon gift card you’ll want to check out the giveaway too.

about the book


When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen.

A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do.

They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to.

my thoughts

On Friday I reviewed another Amanda Cowen book, Tainted, and I know that each book is different and that I shouldn’t compare but because I’ve read them so close together it is very hard not to.

There definitely wasn’t the same kind of tension in this one, I mean I get Ryan and Ella’s predicament, they are best friends and don’t want to ruin what they’ve got but the situation didn’t feel as if there was as much to lose.

I liked the chemistry between Ella and Ryan, the easy friendship that they gradually start to realise is something more. A lot of the squabbles between them are based around miscommunication and I felt like maybe this was a little bit overused, I definitely thought that the problems between them nearer the end were more realistic.

I liked all the characters, I liked that there was a lot of time spent with the group rather than just the two of them. Ryan was so sweet, I mean he had the cheeky handsome arrogance as well but you could tell that he was sensitive to others needs. Ella I had a bit of trouble with, I liked her don’t get me wrong, but she did become a bit of a broken record with always saying they should just be friends and it got a little on my nerves.

This is a nice friends to lovers romance and I enjoyed it but it maybe didn’t click with me as well as the last Amanda Cowen book that I read. Despite that I will still be looking out for more of her books in the future.
