We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first boyfriend, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered.

After ten years, I've returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest

Part of my mind is still astonished by how easily any conflict between us can fall away with the onslaught of passion, but it’s as if our bodies remember how good we always were. He kissed me, and I fell into a swirl or pleasure. He touched me, and I flew into the stars.

4,5. Que lindo! Que história maravilhosa!
Amei! Apesar de ainda achar que a autora deveria ter explorado mais a história dos personagens principais.
Mas não diminuiu o brilho do livro.
Vale a leitura!

If We Fly was a beautifully written emotional journey in the What If Duet. In this continuation of Cole and Josie's heart-wrenching romance, we finally discover all the circumstances which tore this couple apart. Secrets and mysteries click together to solve the puzzle which haunted Josie for over a decade. The realization of what happened that horrific evening undeniably proved the extent of Cole's sacrifices for the woman he truly and perpetually loved. I stood alongside this couple, feeling

Really, guys! This was my first series by Nina Lane and I already am a fan. I love her writing, how it flows through the pages, how you can easily get lost on time reading her stories. 

I had hated Cole's change, and I was afraid of not liking him, but thank God that went all down. What  we don't do for love, right? And here he REALLY shows how much he loves Josie.

I really can't tell you much, but what I had imagined at the end of IF WE FALL came to fruition. It is a bea

The conclusion to If We Fall (and the prequel novella, If We Leap), this is a satisfying, emotional and gorgeously romantic ending to Cole and Josie’s story.

This book picks up immediately where the last one left off – Josie and Cole are enjoying their reunion after ten years apart, but they are still keeping it very much a secret. Josie is still wrestling with her demons, in town only temporarily to paint a mural to honor the history of the town, Cole has been painted as the

I’ve been going out of my mind ever since I finished If We Fall cause the ending took me by surprise. I didn’t see it coming so to finally read the conclusion was a relief and one heck of a roller coaster of emotions.

If We Fly picks up right where If We Fall ends and I was instantly on the edge of my seat. Josie and Cole has captured my heart with their amazing love and heartbreaking story.
They’re two strong people who still love each other despite the ten years they’ve been apart. It shows in

At the end of the first book Josie was beginning to slowly piece together the memories of that fateful night 10 years ago when she lost her family in an horrific tragedy.

She continues to work on her tribute mural and reminisce about her past in Castille. Her rediscovered relationship with Cole is becoming just as intense and addictive as it was when they were young.

The more Josie talks to people and spends time around places in the town she grew up the more intense the flashbacks are. Eventuall

I started reading the book as soon as it hit my Kindle. If we fall might not have the biggest cliffhanger, but it got me suspicious about what had happened and I needed to see if I was right or wrong.

Josie and Cole don't have an easy journey. Especially Josie since she have so many things thrown at her and she has to deal with a lot of people and one of them is Vanessa, her sister. I did not like that woman at all. She got on my nerves and for most part I couldn't care for her or her character.

“We fall into each other as easily as thread slipping through the eye of a needle.”

“Our life flashes between us, saturated with all the good, the frustrations, the hope. Everything spins and tumbles, all the little things that make us who we were together-pancakes, oil paint, salt-encrusted work boots, arguments about the calendar, cotton candy on the pier, sugary breakfast cereal. Bright, youthful love. The tension in the air suddenly breaks, like a balloon bursting. We lunge toward each other.

What a brilliant conclusion to an amazing story! If We Fly, book 2, in the What If duet by Nina Lane, is emotional, heartbreaking, heartwarming, sweet and sexy. It is a second chance love story that will fill your heart. It is beautifully written. I fell hard for Cole and Josie.

The story is told in alternating POV which is my favorite because it allows me to really be in the characters’ heads and understand where they’re coming from fully. Author Nina Lane is a master at using this style to let

If we Fly carries on from where If we Fall finishes so there are no gaps or long periods of time.
What Nina Lane has written in this second book shows you how good she is. Josie and Cole will break your heart with their story which is beautifully written.
Nina has also shown that no matter the length of time two people who were madly in love can be apart they can always reconnect and the reconnection is electrifying.

If We Fly is one helluva conclusion to the What If Duet. Nina Lane keeps the angst level high as Cole and Josie once again find themselves at a crossroads as past events become blatantly clear and threaten their second chance at true happiness. I have always wanted Josie to figure out exactly what happened that fateful night that changed the course of her life so many years ago. And with the way If We Fall ended, I just knew that when the truth finally came out, we'd all have to watch as everyth ...more

If Lane left me gobsmacked in If We Fall, this last installment in the What If series literally played havoc with my emotions. I had a good idea what was coming; however, it was the author’s vivid and multi-faceted portrayal of her characters’ pasts clashing with the present that made the conclusion such an epic one. This exquisite love story brought out all the feels and even though I had a good cry, my tears didn’t stop me from turni

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

But while this is sage advice, sometimes the cost of the truth ruins lives…destroys hearts…crushes souls.

10 years ago, Cole’s lies stole his happily ever after with Josie and it’s that same misguided judgment that continues to divide these two soulmates. Because even though they’ve reunited their bodies, their hearts and souls still remain separated…still yearning for the love they once shared but making that seemingly im

I'm going to start by saying I love Nina Lane.

In this series she gives us another passionately in love couple who has a long history of knowing each other. Their future was bright. They were humble, bright, ambitious, and understood each other so well when everyone else misunderstood.

The prequel was of their past and how their love blossomed into somethong so intense and beautiful.

Then in IF WE FALL we get how they go from having a forever together to being broken. And oh how broken they both

After the way If We Fall ended I couldn’t wait to get my book whore hands on If We Fly and let me tell you I was not disappointed at all. These characters really stole a piece of my heart and I will never ask for that piece back.

My heart broke again for Cole and Josie, especially when secrets are revealed, others judge and hearts break all over again. The angst, the emotional moments, the push and pull between Cole and Josie, it all comes together for an emotional conclusion to a heartbreaking

I have been anxious to get my hands on this book after finishing If We Fall. Nina Lane has captured my heart and broken it and put it back together in this unique, beautiful story about second chances.

This book picks up right were book one left off. I was turning the pages as fast I could needing to know what was going to happen next. Cole and Josie have a love people dream of. Things were great between them until an accident tore them apart. Now it’s ten years later and Josie is back in town.

Learning to fly is not easy, yet is something we all must do. For only at our most vulnerable can we truly understand what it means to soar. If We Fly is the journey of two broken hearts trying to become whole. From the innocence of young love to the heartache of adult tragedy, Lane took my heart and wrung it dry. Josie and Cole paint a picture of the glory of love. Even at it's most fragile, love has a way of conquering each obstacle thrown in it's way. Quite an exceptional portrait of true lov ...more
