Unfortunately, I did not enjoy Fall with Me by Julie Particka as much as I hoped I would. I thought it was okay and was able to hope that the main characters would find their happy endings. Ultimately though, I found myself extremely annoyed midway through. The characters were quite wishy washy regarding the revenge plan and their relationship. I also didn’t like the sister/ex-best friend at all regardless of her circumstances. Seriously, I get your situation but the way you were acting about losing your best friend was self centered in my opinion. Anyways the characters fell a bit short for me.
The plot fell short as well, mainly because it was very much dictated by the characters’ wishy washy attitudes. There were some great moments, but I was tired of seeing the characters so indecisive. One minute they’re okay. Then the next minute they’re not. It kind of felt like the problems were on a never ending cycle for much of the story, which is probably why midway through I wasn’t as into the story as I was in the beginning.
All in all, I’d give Fall with Me by Julie Particka 2 stars. I was interested at first, but things went down hill as the plot progressed. I did sympathize with the characters enough to want them to find their happy endings. They were just too immature to make decisions for my tastes. The story wasn’t really for me.
By no means should you take my review at face value though. Just because I didn’t enjoy this read, doesn’t mean you won’t. As of May 1st, Goodreads has an average rating of 3.69. So obviously, most people enjoyed it more than I did. I suggest giving it a try if you’re interested in it, and I’d love to know what you think!
