Betrayal always comes from the ones you least expect…

The atmosphere of this story is incredibly detailed to the point you get to see pictures in your head instead of reading words in a book.

I'm a connoisseur of language and she has delivered a masterpiece to be read over and over again.

It's a book you can come back to and never gets old.

Highly recommend reading for all the lovers of romance and language.

I'll be honest up front. Romance is not something I usually read. Why? Well, it tends to be stereotype, very often very superficial, soppy - just not my style. When I got a copy of this story for pre-review I wondered whether I would be able to do it justice.
I needn't have worried.
Free Falling is not your average romance story. It goes beyond the boundaries of the genre, exploring and offering a true insight in the complexities of human relationships.
That I DO enjoy.

I fell in love with Brian and Olivia. They both have been through a lot in terms of relationships not working out, yet they still managed to rekindle the love they had for one another in the past, though not without some trials.
The author manages to write a very emotional, compelling, and strikingly visual novel where you are put in the shoes of Brian, the architect who works for his father’s firm. His relationship falls through because his girlfriend cheats on him and, when things look bleak, h

I'm so excited to announce that Where the Stars Fall releases on March 9th. Brian and Liv hold a very special place in my heart, and I can’t wait for you to read their story. A story of love lost and found, with lots of heart, angst, and emotion.

THIS BOOK WAS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN AND GRABBED MY HEART, MIND AND TICKLED MY HUMOR FROM THE FIRST TIME I READ THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS LAST YEAR AND HAVE WAITED IMPATIENTLY FOR THE STORY TO FURTHER COME TO LIFE.

GETTING INSIDE BRIAN AND OLIVIA'S HEADS AND HEARING THEIR THOUGHTS AND FEARS AND JOYS AND TEARS AND LEARNING THE WHY'S AND HOW'S OF THEIR FALLING INTO SUCH A DEEP AWE INSPIRING LOVE WAS VERY PRECIOUS. BRIAN'S OPEN HONESTY WAS WHAT WE ALL FEEL BUT NEVER SAY OUT LOUD. IT WAS REFRESHING AND REA

Brian and Olivia are crazy....and crazy in love! They both think the other is a heartbreaker, and have spent a decade getting over the other....ummm not so much!! Told from Brian's point of view..which I loved..you see this couple fight, fall and figure out they are meant to be...and the misunderstandings!!! Oh man, if they just shut up for a second (Brian) not lied about ANYTHING (Brian) and stopped jumping to conclusions so quickly (Olivia at first, but Brian too) and most importantly learned ...more

These two are just bat s$$t crazy. He has a past and it continues to bit him in the rear when he is just too nice and makes some questionable choices even knowing it is going to blow up. She has been screwed by men and her inclination since their first go round is to run. Run not talk. Run and assume the worst. Run and leave him behind. No wonder the guy is off his rocker and an emotional basket case. Well things take a turn and they both have to make some changes but nope it aint gonna be easy ...more

The moment I started reading it I landed myself into the world of what I was reading.
The book captures your mind and heart with its inherently powerful narrative & gripping moments.
A good thing adding to the beauty of the book and doing justice to it all the more is the male protagonist's perspective.
One moment and you realise that it has always been that one person & it will always be him/her.
It offers you unadulterated 'love'.
Amazing book,beautifully written..

No surprise here because once again, Ana has written a beautiful story with believable characters. She takes us on Brian and Olivia's journey to rediscover love through Brian's point of view and is able to touch every emotion in such a way that readers feel what the characters are experiencing. To me, that is the proof of a great writer, and Ana is that.

Bravo, you have done it again!

The only thing I liked is the cute kids with the most funniest of lines. Everything else is pure garbage!
This jerk of a Hero is the only one with a POV and whether he is in a relationship with the heroine or not, he is constantly being turned on by other women - and there were plenty OW drama in this!

I skimmed page after page to see if it would get better but honestly it didn't! This author is now in my avoid forever list....

Brian and Olivia’s adventure continues. I love that the book is written in Brian’s POV. The story is full of love, passion, drama, realistic situations, and family. I can’t wait for more from these characters. Garth Brooks “Ask me how I know” is a great soundtrack for the story. As soon as I heard the song, I thought of Brian!

I miss you. More than any words could say. More than I thought I would, ever again.


Where the Stars Fall is a wonderfully written contemporary romance, that takes you on an emotional and heart warming journey. One where Brian and Olivia need to let go of the past in order to allow love into their forever. It's set in England so be prepared for the alternative word use because the author cracked the dialogue and British 'accent'/feel perfectly.


This is an updated and improved version of

Does a man ever forget the first girl he truly loved?

I couldn’t get past the anger corroding me inside. Learning my fiancée was having an affair with a family friend, a man I looked up to like a father my entire life, left me broken and bitter. With little to no faith in women and relationships, I was determined to swear off love or any serious entanglements.

At least, that was the plan.

Enter Olivia, the girl who once left me without so much as a goodbye

Not gonna lie, the story didn’t grab me at first. I wasn’t a huge fan of Brian until I was and then I was glued! I can’t even pin-point the exact moment it happened, but when the story grabbed me, I was so invested I didn’t stop reading for hours!

It’s quite the touching story with just enough conflict to keep it interesting. The secondary characters strengthen the story and added to it’s worth. They enhanced the story and added a flare of humor as well.

All in all I’d say this was a really good

I had the great pleasure of reading this novel from an ARC copy.
Another engaging read from Ana. The story keeps you wondering what will happen next, as Brian has a chance meeting with the 'girl who got away', while nursing a broken heart from a recent relationship. This novel is refreshing change, written from the male POV, revealing a whole new side to a romance story.
Recommended for those who love romance with a fresh perspective.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

More refined compared to previous edition yet still the same emotional read. I really enjoyed the epilogue. Brian will always have a spot in my heart.

The new cover is amazing and I love the new title.

I'm not sure why but I'm thinking I should have liked this story way more than I did.
Don't get me wrong I liked it plenty but while reading I kept thinking what am I missing... something was bothering me and I couldn't put my finger on it.

Their story was filled with (a little bit) drama and problems that kept throwing them apart but as one would expect in a second chance romance trust issues were resolved and they lived HEA. Their love story was 11 years in the making and if anyone deserved a

A voluntary review of ARC :)

It was my first reading of Ana Simons and I loved it! I cried with Brian and laughed with him. I suffered beside him as well. I love his nephew Josh :) He and Olivia are great together. Brian is a sweet heart and i loved being inside in his head and getting to know him.
A love that never really ceased to exist :)
Ana's writing is captivating. And grabbed me from the start.
It'll not be the last :).

If you are looking for romantic love story with all kind of fun and sarcasm dripping to make you laugh uncontrollably, then you have chosen right book to read. The story was narrated by the main leading character and the author so uniquely wrote it from male P.O.V. It is a book, you not often find enjoying and laughing your head off.

It let you know of the ironic thoughts of men literally, what goes around their mind and it was hilarious without any offense on either opposite gender.While readi

This was an emotional heart wrenching journey we are taken on, filled with passion and all of the beautiful emotions that the author manages to catch and paint with her words.
I have to say that I was hesitant about reading a book from a male pov but it definitely exceeded all of my expectations. Brian is a very complex character, and the way he is explained and described is simply brilliant.
There was times when this book made me cry, times where it made me laugh, as well as times it made me ex

Emotionally charged

I loved this story so much, I'm not even sure where to begin with this review. Brian and Olivia are reunited after many years apart. The second chance they are given is full of heartache, angst and emotion. Few spots through the story I was laughing out loud, others I was fighting tears. Basically you get all the feels in their story. Beautiful story, fantastic characters, and phenomenal writing.

This is the first time I read this author's work so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a well written book with a storyline that intrigued me, touched my heart, and irritated the hell out of me, made me laugh out loud and cheer for the lead couple to make it!

Told in Brian's voice, this story takes you on his journey after finding out his fiancee was cheating on him with the man he looked up to as a father figure. He was broken (to say the least), angry, bitter and decided that he would

I've been conflicted for several days about how to do the review, as there were so many good things about this story, and yet, the hero was a douche that I never came to even like. He's that type of douche who moans about losing his person, but still is sleeping around, even when the heroine comes across his path again. See, he wants her but also wants all the women his eyes lands on even with Olivia (heroine) came across his path again & again, and I was truly grossed out completely by his acti ...more

I felt part of Where the Stars Fall. It is well written, with so much feeling and emotion.

Brian Anderson was betrayed and he is determined to bring that person down. He will do anything to protect his family and the people he loves.

Brian spots someone, which looks a lot like Olivia, at one of his friend’s weddings. He couldn’t believe it. It’s been more than 10 years and there she was standing right in front of him. They used to be a couple and things didn’t work out.

Both, Brian and Olivia, ha

Lies, cheating, abuse, revenge all emotions that have the power to destroy. Power that is not discerning no matter what the circumstances. The need for revenge along with other questionable choices and reactions may end up being his downfall. She runs. Instead of talking, questioning, even thinking is sometimes too much, she runs. This author throws a lot of obstacles in their path as life comes at them from all sides. There's plenty of steam between these two and life takes them on paths that b ...more

I am shocked the author is a woman!!

Through the majority of this 2nd time around love story, I was thoroughly convinced the author had to be male. There was so much thought-provoking introspection by the male character, Brian Anderson, that I felt a woman surely couldn't get into a man's mind like this. Successful architect, Brian had pondered for many years how the true and only love of his life, on the cusp of their burgeoning beginning, could just disappear from his life. Now, many years late
