I can instantly say, that I was intrigued immensely by the blurb of The Fallback. This book by Mariah held a lot of promise. This standalone novel is one that touches on many subjects, that we as humans deal with, every day of our lives. It is extremely relateable, and very well written. It was inspiring to see the heroine reinvent herself at her own pace.

Brooke is a event planner at Glitter And Gold. She is also one of the most sought after wedding planners in Chicago. Having a boss that resembles THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, she barely has time to do a thing. After her perfect life was tipped upside down, she in turn decides to take stride in her situation, and reinvent herself along with her best friend of 25 years.

Levi is as intriguing as he is confident. Sexy in a James Dean kind of way. He is as patient, as he is kind, with a heart that has been bruised in the past. In a sense, he also has an old soul, and does things the right way. He lives a simple kind a life even though he has a lot going on.

The reason for only 4 stars is because I felt like the story dragged a little bit. I am all for a slow - burn, but this one seemed like it went a snails pace. I loved the story line I really did, and there was things that I definitely did not see coming, but I feel like the plot blew up and was resolved too quickly in my eyes, other than that it was a very good read.

*Do I recommend this book? YES ABSOLUTELY! It is definitely worth the read.
