**ARC given in exchange for an honest review**
All Falls Down is a love story about two very different people.
Savannah—the abused, scared woman who so desperately longs to belong somewhere, yet has never felt like she was good enough.
Jared—the strong , confident man who wants to show her she belongs with him—no matter what they have to overcome.
There are obstacles everywhere they turn. People, situations, unforeseen dangers keep threatening the fleeting happiness Savannah is too scared to

This amazing, and emotional, story. It's one that, in part, is lived every day by millions of women. Abuse, whether physical or emotional, has long lasting scars that the victim will live with for the rest of their life. The emotional scars are harder to understand, but I believe Ayden did a great job of showing what someone that's gotten out of an abusive relationship would act like, feel like. Though it's never mentioned by name, it's obvious that Savannah suffers from PTSD, not only from her ...more

This was a really entertaining, thought provoking read. I have never read anything that so accurately depicts the emotional effects of abuse.

Savannah has been trapped in a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship for two years, too terrified and ashamed to reach out to anyone else for help. It takes being dumped in an Italian hospital with a life-threatening injury, surrounded by strangers who don't speak her language, before she is finally able to break away from her abuser. She returns

Sarah Reads "Reading in Sarah's Corner"
From the very first page, I was captivated while holding back tears. I just had to know why Savannah entire world shattered into a million pieces.

This story had me sniffling like a baby, laughing out loud and saying “You go Girl,” and signing from the sweet romance. Author Ayden K. Morgen won my heart over with this book. It is filled with mystery, love, hurt, and acceptance. I absolutely loved the mystery that Ayden wove into this story as she let Jared and Savannah’s story unfold. She

All Falls Down had me from the prologue, although I have to admit the story went in a very different direction from where I expecting. It's a complicated, forbidden love story featuring some traumatic and turbulent scenes, alongside some really sweet and romantic ones.

Savannah is a scared young woman who is trying to move on from a horrible past. She's looking for a way to live with past mistakes and rejoin her family Lexi, Kit and Madeline. Be warned her story is traumatic and may contain

*I received this book for review from the author. This in no way effects my thoughts expressed in this review.*

Savannah has been through a lot in life, and it gets worse when she walks in on her piece-of-scum abusive boyfriend and her supposed best friend together. Losing him may be no true loss, but it’s kind of a principle thing, isn’t it? So, with nowhere else to go she heads back to one of the only homes she’s ever known. Things aren’t actually the greatest there either though, and with a

"I'm a mess. I'm weak. I'm selfish. Parts of me are broken beyond repair." ―Savannah Martin

"Beautiful girl," he says. "Don't you know I'd do just about anything to make you happy for the rest of your life? To take care of you and love you like you deserve?" ―Jared Corbit

Damn! Where do I start. I enjoyed this book, kept me on the edge of my seat and took me on one emotional roller coaster from the beginning to end. This was a very complicating storyline. Betrayal, heartbreak, mystery,

ARC....Honest Review for an Advanced Copy.........
All Falls Down is a touching and heartbreaking story about one girl who faces the ultimate abandonment, death, an abusive relationship, and love, sadly at the most inappropriate time. Throughout the story Savannah battles with guilt, her own self worth and longs for a place where she belongs. Adyen did a remarkable job of showing how effortless and easy it was for Savannah to fall into an abusive relationship. How easy it is for one boy to prey

I have received this book in exchange of an honest review.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a great read. The story can be very emotional at times and I always enjoy that in a book.
The characters in this book and the things they had to go through actually came of as real.
I think the author did a great job with this story. The book is well-written and develops nicely.
If you like a good contemporary book, I’m sure you will be able to enjoy this one.

This is a very intense and emotional book that deals with domestic abuse, low self-esteem and finding true love. The prologue kind of confused me, but it made sense later in the book. This story is about Savannah, who is in an abusive relationship and winds up leaving it to return to the only home and family she has ever known. Only Savannah doesn't believe that she really belongs there either. In trying to help take care of the sisters and recovering from her abuse, Savannah winds up falling ...more

Love this story with all the emotions tied to it. Grief, heartbreak, abuse, loneliness, hope, family, secrets, friendship and love.



Savannah is coming back home, leaving the two year hell she has been living. She has endured more than enough heartache, betrayal loneliness and now she feels she has nothing, not even a real home of her own. She is at her lowest and must find a way to survive.

~~~~~~~~~~Amanda's Review~~~~~~~~~~

A breathtaking read that will leave you with wanting more. I can't seem to form the words for this read. It is heartbreaking, funny, and suspenseful. Imagine yourself in an abusive relationship that at first you didn't realize was abusive. It's not the physically abusive but emotional and psychological. You're being kept from everyone you love and loves you, you're told you're not worth it, you're told they don't love you. The list goes on, but

Whew. Coming from a background that involved an abusive counter part, once upon a time, I have to say, Ms Morgen nailed Savannah's struggle to come out of it a new (stronger) person. So well done. I was inside her head at all times, feeling that insecurity that she felt and watching it grow into confidence and courage to face her fears.
I was highly intrigued with the prologue and have to say (without saying too much) that I really love the way Ayden spun that situation on me. I thoroughly

aides characters were great, i loved jared he was a sexy and decent guy, Savannah was sweet and tortured i wanted to hug or hit her and I'm not sure which. lexi pissed me off in pretty much every chapter. i absolutely loved the sense of family this book showed it really touched a

Good book but the main character really annoyed me with her self-esteem issues. I would read more by the author though.

Full of purple prose. Badly written angst seems to be the main plot element.
