Title: How We Fall
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 21, 2017
I remember the very first time I laid eyes on Cole Lincoln. It still feels like yesterday when he stumbled into my life with his messy brown hair and dark eyes. Even though I was only ten years old at the time, I knew right then and there that he was going to change everything.
From that point on Cole and I were always together—inseparable—and I naively believed we’d be best friends forever. But forever didn’t last nearly as long as I expected.
We grew up and grew apart, life driving the distance between us, but my love for Cole never faltered. Even long after he moved away, leaving me and our little town behind, I still carried a piece of him with me every single day. Because Cole wasn’t just my childhood best friend- the boy who knew me better than anyone else in the whole world. He was also my first love- a part of my very core.
When a tragic death brings us face to face again after six years, every single memory comes rushing to the surface. Only this is not the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. The man before me is hardened, intimidating, and so damn sexy I practically melt when those dark eyes meet mine for the first time in six years.
And like the first time he walked into my life, I know with complete certainty that everything is about to change.

The absolute best second chance romance story I have ever read! Cole and Melanie were inseparable as children-but when it came to college, the two went two very different ways. The two are brought back together when one of their childhood friends dies fighting overseas. After six years for not seeing each other-its like nothing has changed between the two. Not even their undying love for one another. This is not just a story about a reconnected attempt at love-it's an absolute beautiful tale of two adults reintroducing each other into their present day lives-about fitting one another in like six years never happened.I honestly can't applaud the authors writing enough! The chapters in Melanie's point of view left me completely blown away. You're transported right along side the quirky child, the heartbroken adult, and then the happy in love character. The chapters written in cole's point of view let us know just how torn up inside he was living without Melanie. The flashbacks-were done so well and fit in perfectly exactly where they were placed in the story. I can still feel my heart swooning at the interaction and intimacy between Cole and Melanie. This story is the perfect mix of comedy, heartbreak, and full blown love. Add this to your TBR list right now! You won't regret it!
