"We’re selfless when it comes to the other. There has never been any doubt of the love we share. It’s the type of love we feel even when our worlds aren’t connected, even when things seem impossible and broken. A love like ours, you fight for. A love like ours means we’ll always find each other."

Damn straight I've finished it!
If I haven't I wouldn't sleep whole night.
I needed to know what happened in the end.
It's little to say that I was slightly disappointed cuz you all know how I hate cliffhan
Ohhhhhhhhhh my word.....

I can't with story. Kennedy and Graham are going to give me a freaking coronary if they don't get their s*** together!!

And Mark?? That guy picked the shortest damn straw of the bunch!!

All the Feels! I think I was in tears the whole book!
As you can see by all my highlights I love this authors words!
Kennedy and Graham are broken people and are trying to live without each other. This story is heart wrenching and also hopeful. It also allows you to see how you can heal yourself and become stronger.

“I want to thank you most of all for allowing me to grow, to learn, and to heal. If it weren't for you, I wouldn’t have been able to get off the ground.”

"You know how you said that you'd always love me?"
Graham nods.
"I'll always love you, too.."
"That's not enough for us though, is it?" Graham asks.
"Of course it's not," I whisper.
"Promise me you'll find your happy," he begs.

I cried so much reading this book. Every time Graham and Kennedy are with each other, reliving what happened in the past, talking about what they used to have, it just broke my heart. At first, I was happy that Kennedy has somehow found happiness with Mark. I

YES, YES, YES!!!!!!!!

WOW... PHEW... I am emotionally drained. This book makes me believe the saying "there is a fine line between love and hate". And to help you understand this is why:

This books starts with Kennedy and Graham trying to cope with everything that has happened to them during their junior year; the accident, their relationship, betrayals, abuse, the rape... While Kennedy is in her room trying to hide from the world, Graham that walked away from Kennedy is with a different girl eve

What can I say??? I love this book, this series. I want so much for Graham and Kennedy to get their sh$& together! It's just like teens to make things harder and more complicated than they need to be. The back and forth, the angst...ugh! I want their HEA now! But like most things, good things come to those who wait!!! want to throttle him the same time you want to hug him. Just like Kennedy, you can see he has the potential to be a wonderful person. He just needs to believe in himse

Beautifully written

I absolutely loved this second book, I cried... a lot. I can't wait for there to be another one! For some reason Kennedy'S Grahams story has stayed with me long after I have read the books. I hope there will be a follow up book to come!

I have only put the blurb for the first book in the series when our worlds collide as I don't want to give to much away in my review, I have to say these books absolutely broke me then put me back together there emotions and feeling I felt as if I was feeling them as well.
Kennedy's character throughout these books is so strong and brave I absolutely loved her character, I also loved Graham's character even though I thought he was a douche at first he wangled his way into my heart. Another charac

5 BROKEN HEART STARS!! This is the second book in the series and my heart is still hurting for Graham and Kennedy. They are both so broken, but love each other so much. Their connection is so strong you can feel it through the pages. This love story was painful, but beautifully written by Lindsey Iler. If you have not started this series I highly recommend it.

I am loving this series. This is the second book, and we get to see the aftermath of the tragedy from the last book. It's been a tough senior year for Kennedy and Graham as well as their friends. This is a great ya series that is branching out. The author does a great job taking on some really touchy subjects. over all fantastic read. Told in dual POV. ...more

Oh my, oh my, oh my. So in a way this book also reminded me of Nicole Williams "Crash Series" and I anticipated that the first book would leave us hanging coming into the second book, it's what you expect out of a series of this nature. I did not anticipate what actually occurred in this book. Wow, I don't want to say the drama was pull your hair out but oh my goodness it was a never ending ball of tension. Knowing that there's a third book in the series all I kept thinking of is where is this b ...more

When Our Worlds Fall Apart picks up months after the end of When Our Worlds Collide. It begins with Kennedy hiding out all summer trying to deal with the aftermath of her rape as well as the end of her and Graham’s relationship. Right away I struggled with the reason Kennedy and Graham broke up. Graham thought he wasn’t good enough for her, or he thought he would hurt her, or loved her but not enough? I wanted a clear answer for their separation, but all I got was a lot of angsty hair p

I was already in love with Graham and Kennedy when I picked up this book and knew I would immediately love it!! No disappointment what so ever!! Yes there are times I was ready to strangle the two of them but I think that made me love them more. At the end of the day I think what they both know is that no matter what when a love like theirs is involved life can be complicated, but it can also be worth it. I'm not saying either one is perfect but they are perfect for each other. And seriously let ...more

Wonderful follow up to book one. We pick up exactly where we left off, with Graham back to his male whore ways and Kennedy dealing with the rape.

Kennedy finds solace in an unexpected place with Mark, Graham's BFF. And Graham discovers moving on from Kennedy isn't as easy as he thinks it will be.

The story moves well, if not in a predictable way. It's a fairly easy read. If you like this genre then you will definitely enjoy this book. I enjoyed Kennedy's self-discovery and healing process. I app

Second wasn't what I expected, but still good

It wasn't what I anticipated it would be, and the beginning didn't reel me in like I was hoping, but it pulled me under fast enough to where I didn't feel like I was suffering. After the beginning hump, I loved it. It just got better and better; curious to see how the next one is going to pan out. I felt like the end of this one didn't leave a good cliffhanger though. Hmm. Although I did spend my entire night reading this book instead of sleeping, so

This is so hard to review. I absolutely love this series. I laughed and cried in book one. I laughed and cried in book 2. I love everything about it. Kennedy and Graham are so real to me. I felt book one for weeks. That's how strong of an impression they leave on your heart. Book 2 is no exception. They are two broken people trying to find there way. Basically it's just a must read series. So excited for book 3 even though I don't want it end. ...more

An excellent continuation

This book really makes you stop and appreciate all that you have. There is so many situations that continued over from the first book making it feel like you continue to grow right along with all of the characters. Excellent read.

I absolutely love Graham and Kennedy... I really wanted to know the aftermath of graduation. Is there another book to follow??
1.5 stars


There is even more unnecessary drama in this book than there was in the last one.
But putting all of that aside, I am disappointed with the way this book didn't appropriately depict the struggles of a sexual assault survivor. Of course there isn't a set reaction or behaviour, but I was surprised to see that the first place she goes to after spending months recovering around at home, is a house party - the same house party that she g

Kennedy is left a drift after Graham gives her up. He blames himself for everything she has been through. She is left hiding after the rape and Graham is left to screwing everyone he can.
Violet finally convinces her to join society again by going to a party at Dan's where the rape took place. Which I find is weird that she is willing to go. She finds a new friend in Mark. Which is a little strange since he is best friends with Graham. Little by little he takes her mind off of Graham and she mov

Watching others in pain seems to be fun for this author. In book 2, Kennedy and Graham work to put their own lives together - separately. Torn apart by tragic events, and a misguided sacrifice, Graham returns to his man whore ways, and Kennedy tries to learn to live without him. The author tortures both of these characters during this book, as both characters are too stubborn and hurt to confront one another about the truth - the fact they still love one another deeply. In their quest to move on ...more

Graham is bae

Book 2 of Kennedy and Graham's story didn't disappoint.. even if I found myself wanting to throw my phone across the room every other chapter. Things weren't going like I wanted and it was driving me mad. In hindsight, I know what happened needed to happen for their characters to grow, but it was SO painful to sit through. Their story is so beautifully sad. On to book 3 now!
When Our Worlds Fall Apart, the second Book in the Our Worlds series by Lindsey Iler, was absolutely, heartbreakingly, wonderful! I cried my eyes out as Graham and Kennedy struggled to move on from the awful, earth shattering events that drowned them in book one. I highly recommend anyone who loves first loves, heartbreaks, finding yourself, and baseball (of course) to jump into this series. It won't disappoint! ...more

After surviving the worst thing that could happen to a young girl in high school and watching the boy she loved walk away, Kennedy is trying to pick up the pieces. But trying to move on when the boy you want is around every corner is hard to do. This book was a fantastic look at how hard it is to move on, but that with great friends and strength anything is possible.

I have to admit this one had my emotions on a Rollercoaster...rooting for Graham and Kennedy to find their way back to each other while Mark was so sweet to her...hating that Mark went after the gurl his Best Friend loves but still loving that he was there for her when she needed someone but it was an amazing story and I was definitely swept up into it!
