Carrie Aarons
Jul 03, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
What happens when two people terrified of falling head-over-heels, actually do?

A recovering alcoholic hero. A heroine who has sworn off men. And the intense attraction that won't stop pulling them together.

Wow! Every book that I read by this author has me completely blown away with her ability to transform words into powerful feelings. Carrie Aarons is a fantastic author and that shines throughout this story. It was incredibly well plotted, the characters were so endearing, and the pace of the story made it impossible to put down.

Ryan Shea has had a tough go at life and with relationships. She has a tendency to jump in head first with the end result always being the same; her ending up with a brok

Oh Emm Geee!!! I didn’t think I could fall harder for Carrie’s Nash brothers but Fletcher has knocked it out of the park. This former bad boy has turned his life around, and is now on the straight and narrow. Carrie doesn’t hold any punches when it comes to Fletcher’s addiction. The way she describes the deep-rooted need and pure want is almost harrowing at times. It made this story very real and gave us a through insight into his mind.
Ryan has her own hangups where addiction is concerned, but

Quick Note: If you have not meet the Nash brothers by Carrie Aarons, I recommend starting from the beginning because these are standalones, but they all build on each other.

I absolutely love the Nash brothers, I swear Carrie Aarons just keeps getting better and better with these that once I finish one book I say definitely that that brother is my favorite... until I read the next. I totally thought that Forrest was going to continue to be my favorite forever, that is until I was in Fletcher's he

"It's at this moment that I realize ... the happy ending doesn't mean a person's world lives on enchantedly ever after. The wrapped-up-in-a-bow ending isn't a cure-all for misfortune and struggle."

This book is a real story about vulnerability and addiction. Carrie knows how to pull you in and keep you right where she wants you.

Ryan is such a strong heroine and you can't help but want to be best friends with her. She appears confident to outsiders, but only because she doesn't allow herself to b

Ryan Shea has had a tough life, and a tough go of it with relationships, with her last one ending rather dramatically. She’s decided that she is swearing off men for a while. She knows she jumps head first into relationships, so she’s decided to focus on herself. Fletcher Nash is the baby in his family, and a recovering addict. He’s five years into his sobriety and he vowed to never fall in lust again. He’s working hard and fighting his battle to remain sober every day. When Ryan comes to town t ...more

The "baby" Nash brother has his own story, and it is a great one. His story is an emotional one that takes him from the brink of destruction from alcohol and drugs, to a life of sobriety. He talks openly and honestly about his path to get there, and it is so easy to love and admire him. Ryan has also had a rough road getting to where she is in life. She is a strong and compelling character. They have known each other for years. The chemistry has always been there, but now we get to watch their d ...more

I received an ARC in return for an honest review. I definitely felt the attraction between Ryan and Fletcher. They were perfect for each other although Fletchers sobriety definitely was a challenge for them both. While their was some drama towards the end it was a good story with not too much craziness. I think Fletcher may be my favorite Nash brother. Good job Carrie!

Rate: 4,5 / 5 stars

At last, Fletcher gets his story told. Man, I really wanted to be inside his mind and see how he was doing. It was awesome to see how he lived his life with addiction and get to see him overcome it every single day. He was strong in his weakness. I loved watching him work to have a normal life and working to do what he loved and boy that man was talented. I'm glad that he found a passion and that passion also gave him the reprieve from his struggle with cravings.

Falter is the fourth and final book in the Nash Brothers series by one of my favorite authors, Carrie Aarons. I have loved every book in this series and this one is no different. Thank you, Carrie for not making me wait long for this book after Flutter. I was slowly falling for Fletcher with each book especially in Flutter that I couldn’t wait to completely fall in Falter. Damn. Did I ever.

Fletcher knew she was trouble. Ryan knew just he was too. They sensed it the first time they met years ago

Falter is a fantastic addition to the Nash Brothers series and if it ends here, it's a fitting ending (although I'd love to see the younger characters revisited too!)

Ryan Shea has had her fair share of lovers but that old saying of looking for love in all the wrong places was true. Despite her fractured, neglected upbringing, she has created a pretty great life for herself, on the surface. As a world class coder, she gallivants all over the globe as a consultant; first class flights, exotic loc

Falter is the last book in Carrie Aaron’s beloved Nash brothers series that features the youngest of the crew, Fletcher. If you have read each of these books in this series, then you know Fletcher had the biggest character arc of all the brothers. When we first meet Fletcher he is still reeling from the death of his father and his addictions. For years this Nash brother has been recovering from his demons. Scared of the triggers change can cause, Fletcher avoided life, love and change until Ryan ...more

Falter by Carrie Aarons
“Will Fletcher Falter? 5 stars”

Fletcher is five years into his recovery and hasn’t had a slip up. The temptation is always there but he doesn’t want to go back. His family though still treats him as though he just left rehab and like to baby him. Fletchers ready for the next step though. He needs change. Then Ryan comes back to town and she’s always been different for him. A temptation he’s never engaged on. The question is though is she the good kind of temptation or the

Falter is the final book in The Nash Brother series.

I have truly enjoyed reading about these four brothers and their small-town community in Pennsylvania. Falter is Fletcher's book, the youngest of the brothers (37 seconds after his twin lol).

Carrie does a really great job in giving us more insight into both Fletcher and Ryan. These two are the most complicated characters in this series as the both have pasts that are littered with bad choices and/or crushed promises. Carrie doesn't delved too d

Falter(verb): (1) start to lose strength or momentum, (2) speak in a hesitant or unsteady voice, (3) move unsteadily or in a way that shows lack of confidence.

Fletcher was going full steam ahead, starting at the age of 14. But you can't keep this speed up, especially when it's fueled by self-destruction and grief. And not when you are hiding from yourself. Fletcher may have faltered as he delved into the world of addiction, but he wasn't the only one. Ryan had faltered and stuttered to stop hers

Falter is the last book in Carrie Aaron’s beloved Nash brothers series that features the youngest of the brothers, Fletcher. It was incredibly well crafted, the characters were endearing, and the pace of the story made it unputdownable.

This story was captivatingly beautiful. The struggle with addiction was painted with a stark clarity and the reality of it was difficult but also so compelling. To say Fletcher and Ryan’s story was an easy journey would be a lie. But, that said, it might actually
Millennial Book Life Crisis - Samantha
The final Nash brother! The growth we have seen from Fletcher throughout the course of the previous books made the anticipation for his own that much more special! After overcoming but still working on his demons, Fletcher has finally got a hold on life and normalcy. While he is attracted to family friend Ryan, he holds back on acting on his feelings because it would change the routine and safety he has built post rehab. But after many years, he finally decides to give in and take the chance. Ry ...more

I am officially sad that the Nash Brothers series has come to an end! What a wonderful series and such a fun book work!Fawn Hill makes me miss small town America where I grew up!

Falter is the touching story following Fletcher and Ryan's love. Fletcher is the family screw up, but five years sober he has something to prove. To his family. To his town. To the girl he doesn't think he deserves.

Ryan Shea has been coming and going from Fawn Hill since her best friend Presley moved there for good. Com

I’ve reached the end of the Nash Brothers series. And truthfully, it couldn’t have ended better than with Fletcher and Ryan’s story.

Fletcher is a recovering addict & Ryan is the daughter of an addict, both trying to navigate this crazy thing called “love”. Both are flighty & unpredictable, but one thing is for sure is the strong chemistry between them.

This was the HOTTEST book of them all!!!
She truly saved the best for last.

I loved this book the most out of all four. It was a slow-burn

Running away from yet another failed relationship Ryan finds herself living in the guest house of her best friend - who just happens to be married to Fletcher's brother. The two are an unlikely pair who fight their attraction. But the more time they spend together the more feelings change from just friends to possibly the one they had always been looking for.

Falter by Carrie Aarons is book four in her Nash Brothers series. Every book is about another couple and could be read as standalones. For best reading experience I recommend to read the books in order. The previous books are Fleeting; Forgiven and Flutter.
Falter is Ryan and Fletcher's book. Fletcher is one of the Nash twins. He fights his addiction and after years of sobriety he's still struggling. He's an up and coming artist and deeply in love with Ryan.

An amazing conclusion to a must read series...I’m going to miss all these characters!

This is Fletcher and Ryan’s powerful story of fighting their weaknesses, continuing their battles, and opening up to the possibility of the future they’ve both dreamed about.

We know from the other books in this series that Fletcher had some serious demons in his past, but we also find out more about Ryan and her past demons as well. Neither of them needs or wants the attraction they feel for one another. Howev

Epic story for the last Nash brother! We have seen Fletcher from the addict stage to his later years in life where he is now sober and just fighting the daily addiction demons. He has a supportive family and has steered clear of relationships. But Ryan is one temptation he can no longer fight off. Their sparks are ever present and they keep getting into fateful situations where they are tested. These two both are fighting demons and must figure out how to work together to overcome them.

This is so much more than a romance read. It’s one of those books that goes deep into the story and gives us a wonderful book.

Fletcher is the broken brother, the addict, the baby. They walk on eggshells around him afraid he will lapse and drink again. He’s sworn off romance but when Ryan comes back to town he can’t hold back anymore.

I love how the author took us into the battles of addiction on both sides of a relationship. Different but similar these two have had there own battles and the auth

I have anxiously awaited each and every one of the books in the Nash Brothers series by Carrie Aarons. I was so excited to get Fletcher's story! His background has set with me from the beginning. He has struggled with addiction, and continues to do so. Ryan has had her own set of problems as well. These two together complement each other perfectly. Together, they're able to find happiness and lean on each other for support.

Fawn Hill is not just a fictional town but a place where Carrie Aaron shows us anything is possible when it comes to love. We have the baby of the Nash brothers and boy is Fletcher sexy. I loved how far he has come since Keaton and Presley's book rooting for him all the way. Then we have Ryan finally opening up and making us see what she really is like. Loved this series seeing it end but happy in a way seeing their happiness even Fletchers. Great job Carrie Aaron's in this beautiful series.

Fletcher did not disappoint! My Fave Nash brother

I devoured this book in one sitting! Fletcher and Ryan are two broken souls who become one. Each one is looking for the other half of their soul. They have such tragic baggage, but still, are open for love and unwilling to just settle. That is a lesson that we should all strive to have. Even when you have been through a lot in life it is still refreshing to remember to open your heart and love will find you when it is time. Carrie Aarons really hi

It was bittersweet, going back to Fawn Hill for the final Nash brother book. I loved Fletcher and Ryan’s book. Both with struggles bigger than each other. Both trying to be so strong standing alone...finally realizing how strong they can be...together. I loved the push and pull these two had. I loved that their struggles were so...real. I felt their joy, their pain. I loved this series. Highly recommend the Fawn Hill Nash brother books!!!

Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She live
