It was just a little white lie.
I never thought it would spiral out of control.
But I didn’t have a choice. Asher was close to learning the truth about me, and I couldn’t let that happen.
But now everyone hates me. Well, everyone except for Asher. He believes in me even after what I’ve done.
And when I’m with him I feel like I’m falling.
I just hope if I do, he’s there to catch me.
Falling To Pieces was my first Amber Garza read and it won't be my last. I've been in a contemporary NA kick and this book was right up my alley.
The story revolves around the relationship between Asher (swoon!) and Ivy. They were best friends through high school (though each secretly harbored feelings for one another),until one fateful night that changes everything for the both of them. I can't divulge what happened that night without spoiling the storyline, so I'll talk a bit about the characters.
I fell in love with Asher right away. He's the kind of guy most girls dream about. Super hot and popular, but with a sensitive soul and a good heart. Asher wasn't your typical self-centered hot guy. He went out of his way for others—especially Ivy. I love how he didn't listen to other peoples opinions about Ivy, or their relationship. He stayed true to his feelings and listened to his heart. Great character.
I felt a tad irritated with Ivy for a good portion of the book. Mostly because she stubbornly refused to open up to Asher (the one person who was truly there for her). Her situation was horrible, so despite my irritation with her, I understood her actions. People do what they have to do to survive, and don't always make the best decisions in tough times.
If you like Contemporary NA, then I think you'll really enjoy this book. The writing flowed well, and the characters were easy to like.
