All Falls Down Tour & Review

All Falls Down
By Ayden K. Morgen  

Release date: November 1st, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

When Savannah Martin walks in on her abusive boyfriend and her best friend in bed together, she thinks life can't possibly get any worse. And then she wakes up in a hospital in Italy, scared and alone. With nowhere left to go, Savannah runs to the family who took her in when her mother abandoned her as a teenager.

But things aren't as simple as they were then.

For starters, two years of constant emotional abuse has broken Savannah in ways she's not sure can be repaired. And patriarch Matthew Talbot has been murdered, leaving his eldest daughter, Lexi, in charge of a global non-profit and her younger sisters.

Jared Corbit, Lexi's gorgeous boyfriend, is the only thing standing between her and whoever murdered her father. That doesn't stop Savannah from falling in love with him. She knows it's wrong, but she just can't stay away from him when he makes he feel like no one else ever has before.

Finding out his relationship with Lexi is a ruse should make things easier, but when the truth is finally revealed, Savannah's fragile world threatens to fall apart. There's a murderer on the loose, and he's gunning for the only family she has. To save their lives, she and Jared will be forced to make a decision that just might destroy her completely.

How is she supposed to let the man she loves marry another woman?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say (review): All Falls Down had me from the prologue, although I have to admit the story went in a very different direction from where I expecting. It's a complicated, forbidden love story featuring some traumatic and turbulent scenes, alongside some really sweet and romantic ones.

Savannah is a scared young woman who is trying to move on from a horrible past. She's looking for a way to live with past mistakes and rejoin her family Lexi, Kit and Madeline. Be warned her story is traumatic and may contain potential abuse triggers. When she returns home and meets a handsome stranger, she is instantly drawn to him. Jared is strong, intense and guarded, he also happens to be Lexi's boyfriend...

The story is extremely dramatic and takes several unexpected turns. Every time I thought Sav was finally going to be able to escape from her past, something would happen she'd be pulled under again. She is really positive and I felt that she handles everything well and with grace. I'm undecided about Lexi, who I wanted to like, but found it difficult at times.

I enjoyed the story although I did think they made things harder for themselves than they needed to be at times. Don't get me wrong, there are MANY reasons why their situation is extremely complicated, but I would have liked them to have been more honest with each other (and themselves). 

I liked Jared and how he cared for all the girls (although I really wanted him to get another nickname for Sav). The sneaky peek inside Jared's head made me smile and it helped me to appreciate why he does certain things - so sweet!

Have the tissues ready for this one and be prepared to laugh and cry along with the characters. There are some sexy scenes so be prepared to blush.

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
