Brooke and Heath should never have become friends, let alone fallen in love

A year ago, Brooke Covington lost everything when her beloved older brother, Jason, confessed to the murder of his best friend, Calvin. Brooke and her family became social pariahs, broken and unable to console one another. Brooke’s only solace remains the ice-skating rink where she works, but she no longer lets herself dream about a future skating professionally.

When Brooke encounters Calvin’s younger brother, Heath, on the side of the road and offers him a ride, everything changes. She needs someone to talk to…and so does Heath. No one else understands what it’s like. Her brother, alive but gone; his brother, dead but everywhere. Soon, they’re meeting in secret, despite knowing that both families would be horrified if they found out. In the place of his anger and her guilt, something frighteningly tender begins to develop, drawing them ever closer together.

But when a new secret comes out about the murder, Brooke has to choose whose pain she’s willing to live with—her family’s or Heath’s. Because she can’t heal one without hurting the other.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heartbreak, anguish, hope, this book has them all. I finished this book a few days ago, but I haven’t had the time to write the review. Now that I’m sitting in front of my computer, all the feelings I had when I read the last word are back. I’ve read many heartbroken books, like a lot, but Even if I fall is extraordinarily sad. From the first page, there is this anguish, guilt, and lost. It was hard to find the threat of hope every story has, but it was there, finally. Wait, don’t be scared, this book is amazing, with a deep complex plot, more of what it seems to be from the quick look of the blur. The narrative style is great. Also, it’s the descriptions. The author has the ability to make the reader feels exactly what the character is feeling. The characters are well done portrayed, each one of them has their own voice, and they’re effective in the part they play in the story. And the story, well let me tell you, it has a lot. Drama, yes, of course. Romance, kind of expecting but it isn’t the cute kind, it’s intense, tormented and healer. And tragedy, this story tells about two destroyed families by a single act resulted of a growing snowball. The unfairness of a society, a cruel reality that sometimes we don’t want to see. There is a message too. It remains us that our action not just affect us but every single person surrounding us, especially our loved ones. And the twist, OMG. The entire time I was expecting something else. It was a surprise. What I didn’t like? Repetitions. The Main character was going on and on with the same thoughts, and I think it wasn’t necessary. The reader gets it. And we spend a lot of time inside the MC minds, it can make lose track of a conversation or a scene. But overall, this book is one of those that you need to read. There is so much emotion in every page that it’s going to make release a huge sigh at the end. 100% recommended. I received an ARC from Harlequin Teen (US & Canada) through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. And I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
