fall to you
SynopsisFall to You is the second book in the Here and Now series. It is not a stand-alone and is intended to be read following Lost in Me. Hanna’s story concludes in book three, All for This.

Torn between two men…

When I woke up after the accident, I couldn’t remember anything from the last year—including my relationship with Max Hallowell or anything about Nate Crane. Now my memories are returning, but instead of answering my questions, they’re leaving me with more.

The man who broke my heart and wants to be my future…

Max is all I ever wanted, and now he wants to marry me. He’ll do everything he can to fill my life with love, family, and security. I need those things now more than ever. But can I trust him?

The man who stole my heart and wants to let me go…

Nate never made me promises, and I never asked him to. I’d been on the rebound, looking for a distraction, and he made me feel beautiful and wanted when I needed to feel those things most. He says he has to let me go, but what if I can’t let go of him?

With every revelation and every passing day, I feel more like Alice down the rabbit hole. I’m falling. Who will catch me?

ReviewChristine’s 5 STAR Review!!!

So I went into this book having a clear side, knowing which man I wanted Hanna to be with and Lexi has succeeded in pulling off what I didn’t think was possible…I finished this book completely confused and loving both men, in different ways, but in love nonetheless.

I devoured this book..and when I say devoured I mean it consumed my every waking thought and every time I put it down to do something else, I would come right back to pick it up to continue reading.  I finished it in one day all the while messaging Lexi like a lunatic with my theories, thoughts and crazy banter. 🙂

I distrusted Max so much in book 1, but reading from his POV in Fall to You showed me a different side of him; I heard his thoughts and know now that he has a heart.  Max tries so hard in this book, is Hanna’s complete Prince Charming doing everything right to win back the woman he loves.  And yes though at times I still had problems trusting him completely with Hanna’s heart, I couldn’t help but grow to adore him.

Having all THREE points of view in this book, Hanna, Nate and Max was a real treat and really well done.  Fall to You gives us more of the past and present, giving us a look into what we didn’t know yet in book 1 and making the story of this threesome more complete. Hats off to Lexi for pulling this off because it’s not always successfully done but she nailed it!

While I absolutely LOVED Nate in book 1, I started seeing a different side of him in this book, seeing him more selfish using Hanna to escape his darkness.  Though not necessarily wrong because sometimes we need someone good to help us find our happiness, I wasn’t certain if Hanna and Nate needed each other more out of love or as a way to escape the real world.

A lot of things happens in Fall to You that completely SHOCKED and SURPRISED me, lots of unexpected twists and turns that left a lump in my throat, tears in my eyes, and a slightly broken heart.

In the end, we know that there will be a conclusion to this journey of Hanna’s in the next book.  I was definitely left feeling crazy, emotional, happy yet sad at the same time.  I don’t envy the choices that these characters will have to make because in the end someone will be left with a broken heart; both men equally deserving but in the end only one will end up with the love of the woman of their dreams.

I truly enjoy the Here and Now series….it’s not every day that multiple books in a series will completely captivate me or leave me wanting more but this one does it for me…I am left in complete book hangover completely hungry for All For This…thankfully the wait isn’t too long as August is around the corner.  I will continue to stalk the author til then hopefully she throws me a hint or two.

Thank you Ms. Ryan for an enjoyable series.  You are definitely a must click author for me and I look forward to more from you! <3


Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.
