When I saw this book was coming out, I was really excited and the blurb just made it even better. I love Eden Butler's Thin Love series...she writes a really good romance and I love all the Hawaiian elements.

I was really looking forward to this and then...there was Kona! All I kept thinking was he just had to be in the spotlight again! Don't get me wrong, I quite enjoyed Kona's parts but it sets this book up to be compared to that one and there is really no comparison.

That do

I've heard so many good things about this author that I needed to see for myself. I now that I need to trust in others opinions but my mojo is seeing to believe it, and I'm so happy that I took this chance.
Eden Butler has an intense and breathtaking writting that will make you feel the story so intensely that you'll lost your breath.
Fall is her latest release and tells Lily's story.

Fall is my very first book from Eden Butler. However it definitely won't be my last.

When Fall starts out Lily is back home in Hawaii on spring break. She runs into her high school crush, Keilen. Their chemistry is SMOKING! And just when you think she'll finally get the guy she's always wanted, BAM! Life throws a curve ball. And Lily is left broken.

Several years later Lily is a lawyer in a law firm in Louisiana. When she goes home for a visit to check on her niece, she once again runs into her

Like a tropical storm, this story builds from a quiet tale in a bar to a tempest that pulls the reader along, getting tossed about.
The setting of Hawaii is as alive and multidimensional as a character in the story. As a reader I fell in love with the place, not able to resist it's charm.

“I suppose falling is fine when you’ve got someone to catch you.”

My heart is bursting with all kinds of emotions right now. This story is raw, powerful and oh so amazing.

“There was too much sensation, too much emotion wrapped up in him, in that smile, in the warm gaze he moved over her face.”

I felt so connected with the characters in this book. But especially with Lily and Keilen. I cried when they did, I laughed when they did, and I fell in love just as they did. They are truly perfect for each other. They are so honest and so real with each other that

This was my first Eden Butler book, and I really enjoyed it! The writing flowed well, and the characters and their emotions jumped off the pages.

Events were constantly keeping Lily and Keilen apart. When Lily finally has extended time off from work, she goes back home for her niece but running into Keilen is inevitable. They finally have time to explore the attraction, but Lily can't escape her mainland troubles. I figured out kind of early on who was behind the "issues" at the law firm, but I

Eden Butler and second chance love - winning combination

I love reading books by Eden Butler and FALL was SIMPLY EXCEPTIONAL. Beautifully written and full of many intense moments that you will feel your heartbeat continually rising and lowering with each scene. It's a book that will certainly test the gamut of your emotions.

The story may have started off slowly, but to me, that was perfect. It continued to build at its own pace to reach a conclusion that will be always remembered. Lily and Keil

Keilen and Lily a perfectly addicting story that takes us through an array of emotions. Passion, love and second chances, are what Eden is best at. You become emotionally attached to the characters in this book eager to know how the story unfolds.
We are found engulfed in chaos of a stalked, a career ruined and love lost and then found again. The perfect combination for a book that will live in your heart for a long time.

This was my first book by Eden Butler and I can guarantee it won't be my last - the story flowed so well that I struggled to put it down, so much so I didn't get to sleep until 3am when I finished it!

I have bumped Thin Love up my TBR list now - I can't wait to read more about Kona!

This was the first book I've read from this author and it definitely will not be the last. This story was such an emotional read with the heartbreak and tragedy that Lily suffers. She has a hard time believing and trusting in love but the person who can change her mind is the one person she has loved from afar. You wont be able to pull yourself away from this beautiful story of broken promises but getting those second chances! ...more

Well written, with great characters and a storyline that moves at a good pace for the story. The story has the right amount of emotion and angst.

Another amazing book by Eden Butler! Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. I felt such heartbreak for Lily and everything she goes through. I can understand why she is so wary of finding love. But how can you not fall for Keilen! The setting of Hawaii and the secondary characters add great depth to the story. I was a little confused by the POV's from Lincoln and wished it had been Keilen instead or just Lily's throughout but I highly recommend this and all of Eden Butler's books.

Fall is the first book that I've read by Eden Butler, and it was quickly apparent that I have been missing out! The emotional journey that I was taken on was heart wrenching, and I found it hard to catch my breath throughout the whole story. I fell in love with Lily from the beginning, and while she went through things that broke her, she never gave up. And while I recognized that Keilen was perfect for her, I still had a few moments where I wanted to shake him, as I had her back completely. How ...more

4* read.

My first book by this author and a real emotional read and an emotional rollercoaster of a journey. A complex story with relateable charcters it does make for a great read.

The story was engaging and kept my attention till the very last page, the main characters Lily and Keilen were hot together and I could feel the chemistry between them straight away. My only problem was I got a bit frustrated with Lily at times, finding myself screaming at my kindle for her to open her eyes, but thats

Sometimes you have to fall & get back up to really appreciate what life has to offer. This book takes you on a whirl wind of emotion from past to present getting to know Keilen and Lily. My heart broke a million times for the trials & tribulations that Lily had to endure. Just when you think she gets a break, life happens again. I love the love the two has & this book was absolutely beautiful at times. I've always adored Mrs. Butler's writing & this is no exception. ...more

This story has a sweet beginning showing the way Lily and Keilen are finally connecting during time off from college-only to have that dashed after tragedy strikes. When the unthinkable happens Lily must make painful decisions, not only for her own future, but for her niece as well; including leaving Keilen behind. The introduction to the characters was certainly intriguing, nicely played against a well-planned series of flashbacks. The chemistry between these two in such a short time didn't fee ...more

Alright so, I can probably name off a couple dozen people that will absolutely love this book. It has all the feels. This story is very well written, and the characters are truly relatable. I absolutely loved Keilen and Zee, but lily didn't cut it for me. I understand that she has had a lot of loss in her life, and that she always had to work harder than everyone else, but I felt she was constantly throwing herself pity parties. It irritated me a little bit. This story was depressing and frustra ...more

This is my first read by this author but it will not be my last.

Lily returns home to Hawaii after someone was stalking her at home and it escalated to them sending fake pictures to her work. The real question is, who is doing it and why. I love watching that story develop throughout the book.

The other reason is that her niece called and told her she got engaged, what better way to escape then to go "home". Keilen and Lily have noticed each other forever...she had a crush on him and he always not

This story is about Lily Campbell and Keilen Rivers and the possible love that they might have had when they were in their 20s but life interrupted that possibility. Ten years later, Lily is an attorney in New Orleans and Keilen is an attending doctor specializing in neurology in Oahu! Lily never thought she would go back home since she felt that there was nothing there but pain for her. However, a forced "vacation" from work and a call from her niece with unexpected news brings Lily back to Oah ...more

Fall by Eden Butler - 5 stars

This is the first book that showed up on my TBR list by Eden Butler. I was excited to read it as I've read great reviews about her previous series. I have added her other books to my TBR and will make sure they stay near the top of the pile.

Lily Campbell is a girl who has grown up. She's left her little island and come back after achieving career goals, but not everything has gone her way. Keilen Rivers is someone she was aware of growing up. "he existed in a world w

I think this is the first book I've read by Eden Butler but I can guarantee it won't be the last.

This was a very sweet, sometimes sad, second chance love story. Lily left home many years earlier, then while she's there on a visit tragedy strikes and she leaves again, leaving behind almost everything she loves, this time with her young niece and for good as far as she is concerned. Flash forward a dozen or so years and once again, Lily's life is falling apart. When she gets a voicemail from her n

Eden's writing shines in this new romance. From old friends (Thin Love Series characters) to new book boyfriends...Keilen... :) you're sure to fly through this one and breathe a lovely sigh at the end.

These two have somewhat known each other for awhile, but things sure heat up whenever Lily returns home to the islands. Can Keilen and Lily find their way back into each other's arms, where it seems they belong? Or will a threat from Lily's life in New Orleans follow her to the islands, causing hav

4.5 Dazzling Stars! This is my first read from Eden Butler and I can say that I really, really enjoyed this book! It was a beautiful story from beginning to end filled with such emotion. It had a little steam, a little heartbreak, and so much more. Lily has been through so much in her life, having to raise her niece and move away from the only home she knew to do it. She keeps missing opportunities to be with the man she loves and their timing was just never right. Keilen was amazing and it only ...more

I fell in love with this story. The way it was written, the scenery, the characters, the adventure and heartache.

The book flowed beautifully, taking you through Lily's years. Her life plagued with death was a constant reminder of how she would never have happiness, so her job and her niece became her life. But when both are at an impasse, fate steps in. Love was always in the distance, until it was right in front of her. Keilen WAS always there, the history and passion between them is remarkable

This is the first book I have read from Eden Butler and if this is her style of writing it certainly won't be the last. This is a beautifully written story , it flowed so well and in a way that had you captivated, devouring each word and unable to put the book down.

Lily was such a beautifully strong woman, she has survived the unimaginable. She has known Keilen a long time, she had a crush on him when she was younger, now she is back home can she finally find happiness with him?
