blurb

“I don't know if it’s fate, coincidence, or my curse, but I'm still breathing, and my breaths are for you.”
Mags McManus is far from a normal woman in her mid twenties. Being a war widow, a business professional, and a brokenhearted train wreck only skims the surface of the layers of who Margret McManus truly is. Waking up in a hospital bed, alone and confused, Mags once again has to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart. With her best friends by her side, Mags slowly starts to learn the answers she so desperately longs for. But is everything going to continue to spiral out of control? Or is there a light at the end of this dark, twisting tunnel where all the broken pieces can finally fall back together?

Review

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars


After reading about Mags and Walker's star-crossed relationship in Crashing Back Down, Falling Back Together (the direct sequel) was not a disappointment. I found it better than the first, less confusing in parts and with just the right amount of drama.

Mags gains consciousness from her panic attack to find her world more empty than before. Because of his guilt, Walker is gone, punishing himself by going to his own personal hell - home. No one knows where that is and Mags isn't even sure if she should start looking. She knows Walker is punishing himself for a plan gone so very wrong; something not his fault but one he has every right to blame himself for.

Mags uses the time to slowly allow herself to heal. When Mitch gives her information on Walker's family, she searches for him and finds his hideout, while getting a small encounter of the family he's tried to run away from. It's a short reunion, ending with another fight and her leaving.

There's always been more to Walker than he let on. There are very good reasons why he wanted to hide who he really was and why he would think suicide was a good solution to his problems. He, too, is in need of healing and it's only Mags that can help him through it.

Falling Back Together is a dark romance that only a writer of Kristen Hope Mazzola's calibre could write. It's sad but not depressing, there's enough realism there with relationship problems (and not just those of the main characters), alcohol, and more positively, quirkily terrific family support. Of course there's a happily ever after, but how these two and their beautiful friends and family made the journey, is the whole point of this story.

I am hoping for another installment of this series: Cali and Mitch deserve to have their story told, too!

I took fistfuls of his black, long-sleeved, cotton shirt, pulling him as close as I could get him.  I wrapped my legs around his waist and began to kiss as passionately and roughly as I ever had.  I was hungry to taste him again, to feel him again, to simply love him again.
Right then, everything melted away—the fact that we were in the middle of nowhere in a gas station, that I was supposed to hate his guts, that he had a Hyde side of him that was evil and tortured.  In that moment, we were simply us—desperately and madly us.
Walker slowly shoved my jacket from my shoulders and tossed it on the metal chair next to us.  Panting and gripping the hem of my shirt, he pulled away to look in my eyes. “Mags? Are you sure about this.”
I kissed him softly on the cheek. “Let’s just not think for little. Please.”
He nodded and pulled my hips hard into his, letting me feel how ready his body was for me.  I pulled his shirt up over his head, revealing all the gorgeous artwork that covered his chest, shoulders, and arms.  I traced my finger tips from the start of his wrist, following the flow of the inked lines until my fingers were stroking his rigid abs just over his belt buckle.  Walker’s breathing was heavy as he watched me take in the manly beauty before me. Slowly, I started to kiss from his collarbone to his jaw, finally finding his soft, desperate lips.
