Catch My Fall
(The Catch Series #1)
Mia Reeves faith, trust and sense of security were all taken away in the blink of an eye. In need of a fresh start, she settles into a new town and begins to make a new life.
Tristan Chamberlain has always kept girls at arm's length and he has no intention of changing. He’s caring, smart, handsome, but he’s also dealing with a lifetime of guilt that’s slowly but surely destroying him.
Sometimes what you run from is the one thing that will save you.
Separately, they’re both free-falling. Together, they’re about to find that love can create the strongest safety net of all.
Absolutely a 5 STAR read!!!
One of the things that makes a book a truly great read for me is the characters. I have to be completely immersed in their lives and connected with their stories to be able to say that I LOVED a book. Ella Fox did not disappoint me with Catch My Fall. I was HOOKED from the very beginning. The first time I sat down to read, I got to 15% just because I didn’t have time to keep going. The second time I read I finished the book!!! I DEVOURED the last 85%. I couldn’t stop myself, I just had to know what happened next.
My connection with the characters was instant. I knew I was going to love Mia as soon as I met her and Darby had me at “I call her Kenny G because she blows so much.” In most books the characters annoy me at some point, or make decisions that drive me crazy, but that never happened in Catch My Fall. After getting to know Mia, I realized that there was something dark and scary about her past that made her leery of guys. The actual events that took place in her past are awful, and so relatable to real life situations that it was scary. Darby turns out to be the perfect roommate for Mia at college and she just so happens to be friends with the Chamberlain twins, Trace and Tristan.
Oh, Tristan, AKA Chocolate Eyes. When the reader first meets Tristan, Darby informs us that he is a Malore, a male whore. He is a typical ladies man that needs to find the right girl that can make him outgrow his Malore ways. Could Mia be that girl? She finds herself attracted to Tristan like she’s never been attracted to a guy before.
“I’d never in my life had the butterfly feeling about a guy and it was both scary and exhilarating.”
With both of them harboring a dark past, can Tristan and Mia ever really overcome the things that haunt them and be able to have a normal relationship? Their twisted pasts are more closely intertwined than either of them ever expected. After Mia finally divulges her secrets to Tristan, he finds it hard to handle because his past and Mia’s past come crashing together in the most unexpected way. With the odds against them, they have to decide whether to fight for their future or let their past destroy the relationship they built.
“Fighting for you is what I was born to do.”
This book was definitely a rollercoaster ride of emotions for me. My emotions were closely connected with the characters I fell in love with. I laughed when they laughed, cried when they cried, and felt everything they felt.
“Where I once saw only dark, you’ve brought the light.”
Though the subject matter in the plot of the book was dark and twisted, I was completely satisfied with the HEA at the end of the book. I cannot wait to read more about these characters in the next installment of the series.
I highly recommend this book to whoever may be reading this review. Seriously, I don’t think words can accurately explain how much I enjoyed this story. Such an amazingly beautiful twisted story of hopelessness, love, and acceptance. This is the very first Ella Fox book I have ever read and it most certainly won’t be my last!
“The love that I thought I didn’t deserve has turned out to be my salvation. What were the odds?”
So, what are you waiting for? Go pick up this book NOW! =) Happy reading!
