When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.…

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again….

One Line: With a guy that can rival the mighty Braden Carmichael, this book was a serious winner.

In My Opinion: Must. Read. NOW!

I’ve enjoyed every one if Young’s books in this series, but I have to say, Fall From India Place is easily one of my favorites. It’s basically tied with On Dublin Street and Marco can battle it out with Braden for a place in my heart because he is just that damn swoonworthy. Young once again grabs your attention from beginning to end, making you care for and fall for her characters in a way not many can do. Her writing is so captivating and her characters are so engaging, but this one steals the show. Even though Marco and Hannah’s relationship is far from unique, the way Young tells it is just plain addictive.

Marco was so amazing, I’m at a loss for words. I fell for him so hard. Sure, he did a crappy thing to Hannah in the past, but his reasoning for it was justifiable, although it certainly doesn’t make up for it. However, what he does in the rest of the book sure as heck would win me over. All of Young’s men are determined, head-strong, with a touch or more of alpha, but Marco is the perfect example of it, in a well-balanced, sexy package. His past is sad, and I sympathized for him, but what also made me feel for him, and really fall for him, was what he did afterwards, how he turned his life around and what a great man he became. His love for Hannah was also so touching and it was definitely fun to watch the chase. Oh, so much fun!

Hannah is clearly the stubborn type, especially when it comes to having Marco back in her life, but she has good reason. While I didn’t particularly believe the depth of her fears based on what happened to her in the past, just in my own personal opinion, I understood it and I guess it fit with her character. Even though she does her best to fight off anything serious with Marco, their chemistry was off the charts. Young didn’t hold anything back with these two and there were times I could’ve definitely used a fan, it was so hot!

I loved seeing Hannah’s whole family and catching up on their lives. That’s always a highlight in a companion novel series and these characters bring such joy to my bookish heart. I honestly couldn’t put this book down and I think Young outdid herself with this one. If you’re a fan of the series already, you’ll devour this just like I did. Heck, even if you’re new to the series, or genre, you will love this book! An excellent read!

About Samantha Young

I’m a 28 year old contemporary and paranormal romance author with 21 titles to my name so far. I love anything that allows me to be creative which means I love my family a whole heck of a lot. They’ve put up with my stories, a number of forced bedroom redecorations, singing, artwork, messy art supplies, a failed attempt at learning guitar, whiny emo music, two house moves (and redecoration) that they should have let me get on with myself but are far too nice to have done so, and a level of sarcasm they only have themselves to blame for since they raised me that way …
As a young girl I never imagined in a million years I’d get to spend my hours day dreaming up stories for myself and other people to enjoy. Much to my delight and amazement there are readers out there who can relate to my dry humour, my mad worlds, and all my heroes and heroines who sometimes do the saving and sometimes just need to be saved. Moreover readers seem to love my home country as much as I do. If I didn’t already love my readers for supporting me, I’d love them for loving Scotland. I’m quite attached to the place.
I find my inspiration in many places but one of the most important is in the world of music. Artists such as The Killers, Amy Macdonald, Biffy Clyro, Birdy, MS MR, The Airborne Toxic Event, Alex Winston, Florence + the Machine, Imagine Dragons, Carolina liar, Arcade Fire, Bastille, The Black Keys, Ingrid Michaelson, Paolo Nutini, Metric, The Naked & the Famous, The National, We Are Scientists, White Lies, The Steeldrivers, Olin & the Moon, The Rumour Said Fire, Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Pink, Lana Del Ray, Mumford & Sons, Matchbox Twenty, The Lumineers, La Rocca, Butterfly Boucher and many more inspire the heck out of me.
