Title: How We Fall
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

|It's amazing how just from a few words and a little stalking could make such a sweet romance between friends. "You the new kid and You the neighbor" started a friendship that eventually would end up a beautiful love story. The characters, however, didn't see that and needed some pushing. Cole and Melanie met when they were 10 and the connection never died. Some would call this story sickly sweet and believe me it is. What Cole and Melanie's share is what movies are made of. |

I loved both characters a lot. They are sweet together. I found myself feeling nostalgic at times, remembering the freedom and fun times you had as a kid. Cole and Melanie were no different, they had adventures and built things all over the woods but we're blind to their feelings. I absolutely fell in love with this book and it was so hard to put down. It was a matter of sleep vs keep reading, unfortunately, sleep won. This was an incredible book with such a sweet friends to lovers love story.
