About the Author

You want to know more about me? Well, let's see... I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time "day job" and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world. Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I'd like or just to shoot the, well you know. A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.

For the first half of this book I was not honestly sure how I felt about it. But by the time I finished I had enjoyed reading it.

Mags is a war widow, losing her young husband Randy before they could even properly start to enjoy married life. Being so young she struggles to cope, and shuts herself away from everyone who cares about her. It is her way of dealing with the loss.

Walker was Randy's best friend. He feels he owes it to Randy to look out for his widow. He takes that job seriously.

But neither Mags or Walker could have predicted they would develop feelings for each other. They fight it as much as they can, both believing they would be betraying Randy's memory if they got together.

I didn't like the fact that the characters tended to drink a lot. I mean they drunk to forget, they drunk to enjoy themselves, they drunk just for the hell of it at times.
It just put me off for some reason.

The ending kind of comes out of the blue. It was such a shocker which I did not see coming. If I'm totally honest it was the ending which brought up my rating a little.

As much as I may not have loved the book, I do want to read the sequel as I am interested in seeing where the story goes and what happens to the characters.

Read in forever heroes box set. Nothing in the blurb or in the set itself said it wasnt a story & was only part 1. Sorry, I didn't like the drama in mags, how she treated people, how much she drank (possibly 15 units in 1 session) nearly daily and would drive. Compared to others stories in set, her behaviour was irrational and to me obnoxious. Nothing but nothing justifies her self absorbed behaviour. I wouldn't expect someone mid twenties to behave that way. Its more older teens who act this way. Losing her husband was really tough but I cant accept her behaviour, drinking, anger, assaults on others. Definitely not for me and wont be reading more.

**Gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review**

When I first started reading Crashing Back Down, I wasn't sure I was going to actually like the story. I put this down to the fact that I usually read Fantasy books. I did find myself getting more absorbed as the book went on.

Mags McManus is a 24 year old widow whose husband was killed while he was serving in the military. The prologue provides some glimpses into Mags college years and shows us how and where she met Randy, whom she starts dating and goes on to marry. The first chapter catches up with Mags as she lies in her bed, drowning in grief. When Mags decides that she that she needs to drag herself back together, she has a good support network around her: her mother, her best friend Cali, Randy's best friend Walker and Randy's parents.
Mags' feelings for Walker start to change and she finds herself attracted to him more and more. Judging by Walker's reactions and responses, it's clear he also has growing feelings for Mags too. Guilt swamps them both as they feel they are betraying Mags' dead husband Randy.
At first you'd think this is your run of the mill love story but it comes with a dark twist that will have you gasping in disbelief.

Did I like this book? I liked the story and the idea behind it. Did I like the characters? I have to admit, I am not Mags' greatest fan. I didn't like how she treated her mother. Mags just seemed to lose her temper too easily with her and I didn't like that. Maybe I'm being too picky.
I was engrossed in the story and when I got to the end I was like "nooooooo!!!!!" because I do want to know what happens now that Walker's secret is out.
