My first book by this author and a real emotional read and an emotional rollercoaster of a journey. A complex story with relateable charcters it does make for a great read.
The story was engaging and kept my attention till the very last page, the main characters Lily and Keilen were hot together and I could feel the chemistry between them straight away. My only problem was I got a bit frustrated with Lily at times, finding myself screaming at my kindle for her to open her eyes, but thats what makes a good read when as a reader you feel emotions like that.
A beautiful, emotional, well wrote book, I look forward to more from this author.

Lily and Keilen where a match made in heaven but was born out of something that was both shattering and heartbreaking. This book is about promises that are made and broken but eventually everything falls into place.
I really recommend this really great book and I can honestly say this author will be on my radar from now on
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book!

The setting of Hawaii is as alive and multidimensional as a character in the story. As a reader I fell in love with the place, not able to resist it's charm.
“This place, Lil, you know it better than me, it gets inside you. It’s a living, breathing entity that can’t be quieted. You could travel a million miles. You could put as much space between yourself and the past and it still won’t silence the voice inside you.”
“The one that tells you where you belong.”
Lily had moved from her birthplace in Hawaii to New Orleans and got her degree and started her career. She is still running from guilt and sadness and death, but it always seemed to follow her.
"There was the pain that lay waiting in Hawaii, where her life had more than once been destroyed by death."
I love the way this story unfolds, only giving the reader little hints of the story as it goes along. It kept me guessing all the way through and at times I found myself holding my breath for the next discovery on the next page!
“I suppose falling is fine when you’ve got someone to catch you.”
I've just recently discovered this author, but I'm completely in love with her beautiful, lyrical writing style and can't wait to read more!!!
5 Dazzling Stars!!!
Without taking risks and attempting to move forward, there’s no way for Lily to mend her heart…no way for her to allow herself to fall without absolutely knowing that there will be someone there to protect and love her. The island girl who Lily was is buried deep within, yearning to be set free, but her fears and her bad memories won’t allow her to be the naive girl she once was. But what Lily doesn’t realize is that she’s also more than the mainland attorney she’s determined herself to be - she’s more than the success and money that drives her life, and if she could she passed her need to survive and remain self-reliant, she would understand that despite her losses, there are people ready and willing to help her remember the beauty of the island…remember the dreams she once had…remember that falling doesn’t always have to lead to devastation.
Fall is Lily’s journey to find her true ‘Ohana’…to find her true place…her true self and to find a way to make her dreams a reality because it’s clear that she was always destined to keep her promise despite the missed moments along the way.
I loved Kona’s role in the story and the advice that he offers to Lily illustrates just how much he has learned from his own mistakes, which is exactly the kind of insight she needs to determine her next move. But I have to admit that there are parts of the story line that don’t seem to mesh well with Lily’s true adventure. She has enough to work through and figure out without adding extra drama to her already complicated life, so I had a hard time understanding its purpose.
Regardless of my few issues, though, I enjoyed Lily’s story. Eden Butler’s poetic words and vivid descriptions personify Lily’s homeland, allowing readers to understand how majestic it is and how easily it can help heal Lily’s soul if she’d only try to see passed the pain, fear, and grief that controls her every action. Lily’s relationship with her niece and her connection with Keilen Rivers helps to direct the path Lily takes, and even though she encounters a few roadblocks and questions everything about her life, the way she feels about Zee, Keilen, and her island help her to realize exactly where she belongs.
