“I don't know if it’s fate, coincidence, or my curse, but I'm still breathing, and my breaths are for you.”

Mags McManus is far from a normal woman in her mid twenties. Being a war widow, a business professional, and a brokenhearted train wreck only skims the surface of the layers of who Margret McManus truly is. Waking up in a hospital bed, alone and confused, Mags once ag

After the cliffhanger that Ms. Mazzola left for us in Crashing Back Down…I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this bad boy and with the wait…I wasn’t disappointed at all. 

Mags has a ton of pieces to pick up and try to get her life back in order yet again

In Crashing Back Down, you are left with this massive cliffhanger. And I was just dying to know what was going to happen next between Mags and Walker. When I was asked to help beta read this sequel, I was super excited to say the least! I will say Falling Back Together does not disappoint! I think I might love the sequel even more then the

I was lucky to receive a ARC of this book!

Complete 5 star fantastic read was worth every sniffle laugh smile and sigh moments it made me feel

This book may have won my heart more than crashing back down, the story of love, hate, guilt, tragedy, lies, friendship, families, abuse, drugs, sympathy, pity, strength, loyalty, true kindness, trust, loss, and raw overwhelming emotions that tells the story of mags and walker (and their family) is what had me so wrapped up in this book that I could not put

Very anticlimactic. One bad thing happens after another and I was wanting a big talk between the main characters about what happened with her husband that never happened. I feel like I didn't get closure. ...more

This is the second novel in the series and it picks up where Crashing Back Down left off. I adored Crashing Back Down and all of the characters that were introduced in the story. In Falling Back Together, we get to dive deeper into all of their minds Mags McManus’ heart is broken-AGAIN. It took everything she had to let herself love Walker Eastman and now he’s gone. He dropped a bomb on her life and left her alone on a search and rescue mission to save her heart. When she tells her friends and ...more

The story begins right where Crashing Back Down left off.

After Mags found Walker’s journal detailing every single deep and dark thought he's had including a shocking secret she panicked and fainted. After waking up in the hospital, Walker is nowhere to be found and no one has heard from him.
Arriving back home to the mess of dead daisies, she has another mini-freak out as the memory of their confrontation comes crashing back.

On top of Mags’ situation with Walker, her best friend Cali is also sm

Another great read by Kristen and a perfect follow-up to Crashing Back Down! My heart was torn between Mags and Walker....I was aching for both of them. Walker had to live with the unbearable guilt of accidentally killing his best friend in an attempted suicide-gone-wrong and Mags had to come to terms with the fact that she was in love with the man who inadvertently killed her husband. Talk about a twisted love story! When she finds out the dark secret Walker is hiding in Crashing Back Down, we ...more
Starting this book felt like I never left the first one, it threw you straight back into the world of Mags, Walker, Cali and Mitch!
All of them showed how strong they were in this book, especially Mags. Ooooh and Walker can call me 'darlin' anytime ❤
I love all the emotion that Kristen Hope Mazzolla puts into her writing, you can really feel it as you are reading.

You must read the first book in this series to understand this book...what can I say if you loved the first one,which I did,you'll love the this one touches your emotions and it seems more reality based than a "normal" romance would be as it seems based on everyday people and their ups and downs in relationships,issues with trust,and of course family(not just by blood). It does have the happy ending which everybody wants in their life,but it also shows you all the trials a person goes ...more

Words can not express how much I love this story and group of people! These characters run into so many heartbreaks and obstacles in this book and through it all they are there to each other to support, pick each other back up and have become their own version of family. I love Mags and Walker's story and to also hear about Cali, Mitch, Buck, Liz and Jim and parts of their stories as well. ...more

"This was for the best. Being out of Margret McManus's life for good was something that needed to happen. Not for my sake, but for hers. I'd destroyed her. The one person I truly loved and who truly loved me back..Her pain was completely my fault....."

I'm back with the "Crashing" series. This is "Book Two" in that military romance series. As with the first book and the novella, I love this story. I love these characters. You're really best served by reading the first book in this series before

I received this book as an ARC and all I have to say is that Kristen Hope Mazzola has done it AGAIN!!!! I fell in love with Mags and Walker in Crashing Back Down and it took me DAYS to recover from that book hangover!! Once again, here I am, in awe of not only her writing style but how well she handled their love story that truly had so much working against them. I wasn't sure how Mazzola was going to get Mags and Walker them back together, especially after the cliffhanger she left us all with I ...more

This picks up where #1 ended.
Mags McManus wakes up in hospital, with her heart in pieces after Walker’s revelation & subsequent disappearance.
Luckily she has her wonderful friends Cali, Mitch & Buck to help her.
She really has to dig deep in this story, to learn to let go of Randy & completely trust herself & her heart.
I absolutely loved this story & could not put the book down, & I ran through a whole range of emotions whilst reading this.
I loved the characters in both books, you can really feel

Falling Back Together begins where Crashing Back Down ends. I was so anxious and apprehensive about starting Falling Back Together. The way Crashing Back Down ended was just tragic. I was sure I was going to go through a whole range of emotions. I didn’t. It was a nice conclusion to the story that started in Crashing Back Down. I was kind of disappointed.

A Story that will tug at your heart. A story that is about fate and the pain of losing a loved one, finding love and then being betrayed by that love. How can a romance sustain that kind of pressure? Only if it is true and self sacrificing can this kind of love be as strong as the love that Mag's and Walker share.

I loved how raw this story is. Mags has many emotions that she has to overcome. still mourning the death of her husband and then finding out how and why he died is a hard pill to swallo

Falling Back Together is an amazing second book in the Crashing Series. It is not a standalone, you must read Crashing Back Down first. Crashing Back Down leaves you with an insane cliffhanger. Falling Back Together picks up where Crashing Back Down left us.

I did not know how to feel about the information that comes out at the end of book one. In Falling Back Together we explore how Mags, Walker, Cali, and Mitch feel about the information that came out and how they all can move forward. It's rea
