Review: The Fall Up by Aly Martinez

I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.

As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.

Until he found me.

Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.

But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.

Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?

Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

Review:  4.5 of 5 Stars

In life, happiness can turn up where you least expect it.  You day may start out terribly but end great because of someone you see, a surprise phone call or a number of things.  The Fall Up proves that theory completely.

Levee Williams is a super star pop princess.  She has money, fame and a great best friend, Henry, also a star.  But what all those things don’t bring?  Happiness!  Levee begins going to a bridge every night and meets a tall, tattooed, smoking hot stranger.  Even though she is in a disguise she is still hesitant to talk much to him.  After meeting several nights in a row, the stranger is worried but a little obsessed with the mystery girl that seems to be contemplating jumping.

Sam, the stranger, offers Levee a reprieve.  He doesn't care that she is a celebrity.  He tells her what she needs to hear, not what she wants to hear.  He sees her for the flawed person she is and still wants her.  When he pushes her to get the treatment she needs. she obliges.  But will their feelings be strong enough to last?  Especially when she finds out all of Sam's past and the heartbreak he has already endured?

The Fall Up had me hooked from page one.  I love Aly Martinez writing style and her ability to weave such story and create characters I love so deeply is fantastic.  I highly recommend that you one click this one and enjoy!
