Never Stop Falling – Ashley Drew

Synopsis

She didn’t expect to fall for her best friend.
He was always waiting to catch her.

Corinne Bennett lives in the moment. Whether she’s skydiving out of an airplane, or setting off on the road to anywhere, she’s ready to dive into the next adventure. That is, if best friend and always-by-the-book Nicholas Kelley doesn’t put his foot down on her wild stunts first.

When Corinne gives in to her growing feelings for Nicholas the summer before their freshman year of college, she takes the ultimate risk, making this one adventure he has longed to explore with her.

But the moment they take that irrevocable leap, a shocking revelation blindsides Corinne, exposing her vulnerabilities, baring her fears, and shattering her beliefs about love. With their future—and most importantly, their friendship—now clouded in doubt, she must decide if love is really worth the risk.

Because when it comes to love, you never stop falling.

Review

I loved this story! I rooted for Cori and Nick all the way. It was lovely and heartbreaking for so long.

“The one that got away” is a familiar trope, but this is one executed properly. Things happen. People move on. Or… do they? It was fascinating to see how their friendship (and possible relationship) fell apart over all those miles and all those years. And it was even better to see their lives collide again, at an inconvenient (but not tragic) time in their lives.

This story stood apart because of the timing. Take a look at their communication methods. At first I thought Ashley Drew was just a bit out of touch (AOL, really?), but eventually the IMs and the emails all started to make sense. Then there was the impending sense of doom when everything clicked. Think of all the people (REAL people) who had somewhere to be or something to say. Think of the unspoken, unfulfilled regrets. Think of those that DIDN’T get a chance at their happily ever after. It happens. I’m so glad it didn’t happen in this book though.

That was a little cryptic, but what I mean to say is that Never Stop Fallinghas a bigger message beyond this particular love story. Seize the day, folks. You never know what might happen otherwise.
