Breaking up is hard to do.
It’s even harder when you’re not expecting it.
Brooke Jensen is a planner. Not only in her personal life but also professionally as one of the most sought after event planners in Chicago.
But, when the ideal life she built for herself, complete with handsome, long-term boyfriend and perfect apartment crumbles, she realizes there are some things you just can’t plan for.
While trying to start anew from her best friend’s guest room and discovering the best doughnuts in the city, an idea sparks to life when she meets Levi. He’s intriguing, funny, and shockingly good-looking, and what had been a few stray thoughts becomes a new passion for Brooke, a blog detailing learning how to be single. The project introduces Brooke to new people and experiences, and keeps returning her back to Levi.
But, Brooke learns kismet may have been wrong when she learns Levi is the last person she should be interested in.
Falling for the wrong guy once has Brooke hesitant to start a new relationship, but Levi is quickly proving that The Fallback might be even better.

mythoughts

Charming and fun with the perfect dose humor, heart and so much happy

4hearts2 (1)

This was the first book I read by this author and I’m positively certain it won’t be my last. The Fallback by Mariah Dietz was a quick read with plenty of heartwarming and humorous moments.

I really liked the writing and the pacing of the story even if some parts were kind of slow. The plot, while a bit predictable at times, was delightful and amusing. Now, I didn’t completely fell head over heels in love with this book, but I had some amazingly good giggles, laughs, and a dorky smile stuck on my face while reading. There were a few twists that caught me off guard and that kept things really interesting. Of course there were some serious moments and I liked the emotional depth, but what I loved the most about was how Dietz was still able to keep the storyline funny, light and sweet. Sometimes, you don’t really need all that heaviness, outrageously complicated drama, and endless tears and heartache for a story to be intriguing, entertaining, and enjoyable. Not that I don’t love those cause I do… I really do, but sometimes humor and lovable characters are just what my heart needs and this book definitely had those.

The characters were well-developed and I adored them so much. I thought they were likable, interesting, and realistic. They had their own strengths and weaknesses, but overall, they were a really great cast. Brooke was relatable and I loved her determination and work ethic. Levi was charming and sweet.  But, Felicity… Felicity stole my heart hands down no questions no doubts whatsover. I absolutely loved all the scenes with her in it and was having some major best friend crush on her. She was spunky, honest, kind, supportive, and had such a good heart. Everyone needs a best friend like her. I know I’m a romance addict and I did like the romance, but I LOVED the friendship between Brooke and Felicity. Oh and Brooke’s Grammy was so adorable and Catherine surprised me in the end.

As I’ve already mentioned, I did enjoy the romance and rooted for Brooke and Levi to have their HEA. I thought their chemistry was deliciously fun and I liked the development of their relationship. However, the slow burn was just a tad bit too slow for my taste. There were some swoony flirtations, but I needed a just little more tease and spice. Maybe if Levi’s POV was included, then that might have made things more juicy and fun. I personally really love multiple POVs and I was dying to know what was going on in Levi’s head. That being said, things did eventually heat up and the ending was just too darn precious and cute.

Overall, I had fun reading this book. Charmingly predictable, funny, and adorable, The Fallback left had the perfect dose of humor, heart and so much happy. Not only was it romantic, but also inspiring, affecting, and a wonderful story about LOVE — love between family and friends, love for what you do in life, love for the person you want to spend your life with, and most importantly love for yourself.

Go check this book out. I’m sure you’ll be charmed and entertained just as I was!

I received an advance reader copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts, swoons, smiles, and giggles are my own.

aboutbook

The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .

1. Black coffee

2. Rude people

3. Nathaniel Bradley

Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.

1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.

2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.

3. He disapproves of everything I do.

I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.

I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.

I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.
