This book is deadly... Okay, maybe not deadly but it did give me a nasty burn and made me lose a piece of my hair... But I'll get to that in a few.

They journey through an awakening of passionate young love, fac

Overall Opinion: This is a tough one for me to rate tbh. Initially after reading it I was thinking a 3.5-4 star rating, but I've learned to always leave my actual rating for after I write my review to properly gage how I feel about it. I had too many issues for me to justify more than a 3 star rating. My biggest issues were with the h pushing away, with the huge time jump that we only get vague mentions about what they did in the time apart, with the lack of fall-out from their actions,

If so, then why does it feel so right?”

This started off quite well, but I found the pace lagged a bit in the middle.

This is the line that got me hooked:

“I gasp. My ears shut out all the panic around me so that I hear nothing else. And then my gasp is followed by my heavy breaths. And my breathing is silenced by my pounding heart. And then everything falls silent. Except for his words. They echo in my head, the last words I might’ve heard him say.”

Yeah. Like I’m going to put the book down after that. Needless to say, it was a long night.

This book was everything. It was a VERY pleasant surprise. I'm officially obsessed with it. It was so good, just everything I look for in a good romance. The story, although a common theme, was uniquely done. The characters were perfection. I'm in love with this book. It was engaging from start to finish and I kind of love that we didn't get Cori and Nick's story from the beginning. We chimed in right at the juicy part, which made for a thrilling ride!

Where to begin?! This story starts in an unnerving place. Then it goes back in time to start the story of Cori and Nick! Friends for 18 yrs. Cori’s Dad mentioned the way Nick looks at her. Cori never thought of Nick that way, but once she does. The ball starts rolling and then this story gives you all the emotions! Just when you think you have been gutted enough. The story continues! I will have to say that I’m happy to have read this story and experience all the good and bad feelings while read ...more

Review by Trinette Dungee

Corrine Bennett has always been adventurous, willing to try anything. Her best friend Nicholas is always there to rein her in and bring her back down to earth. Nicholas has always been a constant in her life and they’ve never been anything but the best of friends until they both start to look at each other as more than just a buddy. Crossing the line could mean the best thing in the world or the worst thing and the end of a perfect friendship.

I am not a writer but a reader. I read every day. Every free minute I have, I read. I seldom give my two cents on the books I read. It's only when the book really struck me, and this book did just that. Considering this is Ashley's debut novel, I am more than impressed.

I love a good friends to lovers story. But this one is like no other. I love how even though this book is an easy, nice-paced read, the story evokes feelings in you. Corinne and Nick have been best friends since birth. Both have

This is the type of story that has the power to be a wake up call or to haunt your dreams with what ifs. For this being a debut novel, I’m astounded with how well it’s written. Ashley excelled in her character set up and development, emotional portrayal and the overall structure. She delivers enough angst to crush your soul while soothing the burn with heart warming moments.

Talk about an emotional ride! Seriously, this book took me a little by surprise. I wasn’t quite expecting the avalanche of feelings that would come with it.

I really liked the writing and dual POV, and this was a book that NEEDED the dual POV. I also really liked the format, the book starts in the “present day”, then goes back 6 years, to when Cori and Nick were only 18 and the night that everything between them changes, and then it skims through a whole year, then it’s 5 yea

"But it has this time—for us—and if we allowed guilt and sorrow to dictate our lives, there’d be no point in living. People would never heal, life would never move forward, and our stories would never be told. We shouldn’t forget the adversities of the past or the pain of others, but we also can’t forget to live."


It's no secret that I am a big fan of best friends-turned-lovers stories. The very fact that a romantic relationship started off as something innocent as childhood friendship is beyo

A good debut from Ashley Drew although it had its good and bad moments.

The good points:

1. No grammar or punctuation errors.
2. Good execution of an otherwise tried and tired theme
3. Pacing was good

The bad points:

1. No character growth from both protagonists or even any of the supporting characters
2. There was cheating, on both sides
3. The prose was somewhat trite. Example:

“Gemma claims that she sees him merely as a friend now. Still, I beg to differ. Plus, the girl looks like she crawled out of o

Wow. This was a debut novel? I never would have guessed.

The pacing was good, and several unique ways that the author chose to write her story- beginning at one point and flashing back, only to rip your heart out when you realize what may be happening. Or how she showed two people drifting apart by showing digital communications. I really found them to be effective. The MCs were well-developed and believable, though I wanted to smack the main female character more often than I would like to admi

*I received an eARC from the author, Ashley Drew, and it didn't, in any way, affect my review*

The first time I checked Never Stop Falling, my initial impression was "Oh, I think I'll be having some Christine Brae feels here." I was also a little excited because Ashley Drew mentioned that just like Brae, she's a Filipino author residing in US, and recently, I've been into discovering more novels from our very own Filipino authors, and if I'm not mistaken this is Ashley Drew's debut novel.

This was my first book by Ashley, and wow, did it live up to my expectations. I get a lot of requests to review and when Ashley personally asked me, I knew I had to review it because she had me hooked with the blurb of the book! I normally don't like the way how some books portray the whole best-friends-turned-lovers relationships but the way Ashley chose to write about it is totally unique and that's something I'll cherish.

The book started off with a bang -

Corinne is the girl who doesn't say no to anything, "Hot Shot" isn't her nickname for nothing, and when she finally owns up to the emotions she has for her best friend, Nick, they both aren't giving it a chance to get away. Until Corinne's family is flipped upside down and inside out, it changes everything and she isn't just saying no now, she's blanking out her past and creating a new future, without anyone from her past in it.

I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I might be spoiling a bit here, but I feel like it's important to share upfront, as I don't think I would have been able to read this book had I not seen a warning at the bottom of someone else's review. There is cheating in this book. If you are, like me, particularly sens
As soon as I picked up reading the book after a long slump (where in I relied on quick mangas to keep me running) I knew instantly that this book was grace itself with 4 stars.
After all, the writing style was great, the premise cliche but heartwarming when executed correctly and the two main characters were as opposite as could be. What's not to like?

I really enjoyed this book a lot. It’s just one of those deeply emotional reads that is also really sweet and honest. I was pretty much hooked from the prologue, it really grabs you and makes you get comfortable for the long haul, I read this book in one day and it was hard to put down. This was a great debut novel by Ashley Drew.

This book is told in first person with dual POV’s and is broken up into segments of past and present, and this I loved! Corinne and Nicholas have known eac

The book literally starts with a bang, with Corinne on the verge of a plane crash. Flash back to six years earlier when Corinne and her best friend Nicholas start thinking of each other as more than just friends. But circumstances intervene and Corinne moves to the other side of the country. Through a series of letters, instant messages, post cards, and emails, we slowly see them growing further and further apart. Flash forward five years and Corinne is back in town.

I really loved this book. More than 5 stars. It's one of those unputdownable books. Walking to the kitchen with it in hand. With that constant begging of the characters to get together. Full of angst. Then you get to the second last chapter and you are saying Omg no, no no, this can't be happening. I'm never reading another book from this author if this happens. This is a second chance romance.
