3.5-4 Hot and Cold stars!!





I really, really enjoyed this story. I also really, really disliked it. This was one of the times I did not write a review immediately after I finished the book. I needed to think about what I read and process not just how it made me feel, but all other aspects like plot, writing style, and characters that set my final rating between 3.5-4 stars.

Catch My Fall is a story of redefining yourself, making life choices and the unquenchable need of love, trust and frienship.
The story not only breaks your heart a little but makes you wonder about the consequences our choices bring, even the smallest ones.

This was my first read by Ella Fox and it definitely will not be my last. From the very beginning I was pulled in and I knew I was reading something special. I was an emotional trainwreck while reading this, alternating between laughing, crying, swooning, and bawling my eyes out to hard that I couldn't see my Kindle anymore. The main characters were two of my favorites, and the side characters were fantastic additionts to the story and I can't wait for more books in the series!

I really enjoyed Mia (MiMi) and Tristan's (Stan) story.

Mia escapes a traumatic experience, a neglectful bastard of a father, and a terrible stepbrother, and begins her new life in a new town, attending college. It is where she meets a very handsome, sexy Tristan, who holds secrets in his past as well. Their love story is sweet, despite all the sadness that has tainted both of their lives. I felt heartbroken and tearful, they

Mia Reeve’s faith, trust and sense of security were all taken away in the blink of an eye. In need of a fresh start, she settles into a new town and begins to make a new life.

Tristan Chamberlain has always kept girls at arms length and he has no intention of changing. He’s caring, smart, handsome, but he’s also dealing with a lifetime of guilt that’s slowly but surely destroying him.

This book is AMAZING, AWESOME, SPECTACULAR, STELLAR, OVER THE TOP AWESOME! It is this kind of books that you regret that we only have 1 to 5 stars rating, if I could I would give it a thousand stars!! (yes its that awesome)

So, this is story of Mia. She has a troubled past with walls Everest high around her until Tristan comes along...

They meet in class and the rest is history. Its a pretty intense book due to the MCs back stories, but every turn and emotional roller coaster is the worth it. I th

Any book that gets skimmed more than 30% gets a 1-star. Oh, and books that I want to DNF at 37%, 50%, and 78% deserves 1 star. (But I HATE not finishing a book so I plowed through. How, you ask? I skimmed the shit out of it.)

1. Juvenile writing.
2. Forced angst.
3. Unrealistic plot development.
4. The sub-plot was more interesting and angsty than the primary plot.
5. RIDICULOUS dialogue and character interaction: (view spoiler)

I got lucky enough to Beta Read this awesome book.

As I said before, this is the best YA book I’ve read in a long time.

This is Ella’s first YA book and as usual, she nailed it, I loved it! She has the ability to create strong characters and stories that pull you in, you can't help but relate to them, to feel for them, and that is one skill every author should possess.

Catch My Fall is the story of Mia and Tristan. A new adult story about two broken souls walking scared through life because of their brutal pasts. When they meet there's an uncanny connection neither can ignore. It's a sweet story and I enjoyed the friendship of Tristan and Mia's relationship. They worked hard to preserve the friendship they both cherished while navigating stronger feelings. The secondary characters, Darby especially, provided extra layers to the story as well.

There are certain NA books that I seek out. The heroine has to be likeable with a past and the hero has to a bad boy with a tortured past. Okay, I cannot get enough of these books. Books like Catch My Fall.

Mia Reeves chose a college 5 hours away from home so she could escape her town where she experienced something horrific. It was horrific. Certain parts were hard for me to read. Tristan Chamberlain also has a past, one that he keeps to himself and lets sit deep inside him. Tristan is a Malore

Ella Fox is one of my favorite authors, so from the start, her prologue just blew me the hell away!! And that’s how she starts it off. All freaking angsty…

So here we go, on another whirlwind that Ella takes us on with Catch My Fall. We start off with Mia Reeves. She is a college freshman, enrolling in a school nowhere near her hometown; on purpose of course. She needs a fresh start and does NOT want to be around anybody she knows. I wonder why?

I freaking loved this book! Ella Fox had me at hello with The Hart series. I couldn't get enough of those characters! Now, she's made me fall in love with all of these new characters and I can't wait for the books to follow. This story was about healing and love after traumatizing pasts. It was written beautifully and unravelled with perfect timing. I literally devoured this fact, I'm functioning horribly today from lack of sleep!

First time read by this author. This is a book I've had on my "TBR" list since it was released in late 2013. I don't know how I let it slip through my fingers for so long -- but noting that the second installment hasn't yet been released, it may have been a good slip on my part.

You know I've been talking to Ella on Twitter for months now. We have the best naughty conversations #TwitterAfterDark. I promised myself that I needed to read all the books I kept pushing back in 2014. So I chose 10 books I wanted to knock out my Kindle. This one was one of them. I would also like to say that not once did Ella push me into reading it. Why Ella? Why? I now give you permission to say: "B, read my shit!!"

This was definitely a heart wrenching story at times - Mia's and Macy's story is one that will break your heart, as will Tristan's and Trace's - but along with Darby and their families you will be inspired by the strength all of them have as they face their past and look forward to a better future. It's not all drama though, there are plenty of moments to make you smile with "Stan and
2.5 stars, this was sweet but more of a set up for further books.
I liked this story, it was alright. But nothing memorable. I still like this author's voice and look forward to more from her, but I think this book should have been developed more fully into the present rather than a narrative of the terrible pasts that Tristan and Mia had endured and survived. Also, it seemed to be more of a setup for further stories about the people mentioned in this one.

While I applaud the author for bringing more awareness to sexual assault, I just had sooooo many problems with this book. Here are the main ones:

1) The nicknames Stan (made me think of Dorothy's ex-husband on Golden Girls) and Mimi (made me think of the crazy makeup lady from The Drew Carey Show) were awful.

2) The slut-shaming. I guess it's ok for guys to be manwhores (because they have a heart of gold, of course), but not girls. They're just horrible tramps with no redeeming qualities. Not cool

This book has just reminded me how much I love Ella Fox.

During this book I had a range of emotions. It started with shock then went to complete anger before it came full circle, and I fell in love with this book.

You are shown the ugly side of life. A side that is hard to stomach. How can someone who’s supposed to be your knight in shining armor be your worst nightmare?
