The Fall Up (Aly Martinez)

image
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.

This was a quick and decent read. And the cover is absolutely breath taking. I just don’t feel as if it was one of my favorite reads.

There were some really funny lines in here. I highlighted more funny lines than anything else. So, the author expelled her humor greatly throughout the book and through her characters. They made me LOL quite a bit.

The writing was just good. I found quite a bit of typos and grammatical errors but the quick paced story made up for it. The characters in this book didn’t spark any of my interest at all and they’re development just never appealed to me (mainly because the author never displayed their growth properly IMO). And DON’T get me started on the insta-love.

I didn’t much care for any of the secondary characters either. They all felt so bland to me and didn’t play a real huge role in any of the story. Most of them didn’t even feel the least bit of real to me.

The sex was hot, for sure but I think it was a little too much for the book and for the subject the author meant to touch on. I feel like every two minutes these people were having sex. Or they were talking about when they were gonna have sex next. Or where.

Let’s be real for a minute though, okay? There was so much unnecessary drama in this book it was almost exhausting. There was. It almost felt forced. Like the author just threw stuff in the to keep the story going.

I do feel like this book had so much potential with the subject matter that Aly took on but there was just too much FLUFF. Cheese. It was cheesy. Overly-Cheesey. It just made me want to eat chicken and drink beer. That’s about it.
