Book Tour & Giveaway : The Fall Up by Aly Martinez
The Fall Up By: Aly Martinez Release Date: Oct. 26, 2015 Add to Goodreads Source: Author via BT Host eARCrecevied in exchange of honest review Organized By: TRSoR Book Summary: I wanted to jump. He made me fall. As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight. Until he found me. Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation. But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart. Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down? Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.
“You’re overdoing it, Lev. I know this job isn’t exactly nine-to-five, but it’s not twenty-four-seven, either. You have to stop being Levee Williams all the time and just be you.” “I know,” I responded. I didn’t though. I felt like a robot parading around in a lost woman’s body. Smile. Pose. Turn. Toss in the occasional song. Repeat. What little time I did manage to carve out for myself was spent at various children’s hospitals across the country. Smile. Pose. Turn. Watch a child die. Repeat. With every day that passed, the smile became less and less genuine, the pose more and more forced, and the turn took me further and further away from who I really was. My career was soaring while, personally, I was plummeting. Every single day felt like a terrifying free fall in no particular direction. I was stuck in the middle with no way up—or down. “You remember that girl, right?” Henry asked, tucking a hair behind my ear. I nodded. I did remember her. She was fun and carefree. She loved going out and dancing at nightclubs until the very last song played. She slept until noon if she could. Then, fueled by coffee alone, she’d spend the day with a guitar strapped around her neck and a notepad at her side. She had a huge heart, but she knew her limitations. Oh, I remembered that girl. I just couldn’t figure out how to get back to her.
The Fall Up, by Aly Martinez, was such a powerful, beautiful and romantic reading journey. I am a big fan of Aly Martinez and every single one of her books has a special place in my heart. Her stories are unique and her characters are intoxicating!!! From the moment I saw the stunning cover of this book, I was in love. After I read the blurb, I knew that this was going to be an emotional and unforgettable story.
An all-consuming love story that will leave you breathless.
Levee Williams has it all, but dreams about losing it all. The reason behind her visits to the bridge are still unclear to Levee. She is looking for that girl that she used to be and to be able to let go of the past. Sam Rivers is tired of the FINE in his life. He's looking for something GREAT. When he meets Levee Williams, he knows that she's the great that has been missing in his life. As days go by, their attraction grows and sparks fly. Sam will do whatever it takes to save Levee from her personal demons, but will she be able to let go and be ready to embark on a new journey with Sam?

I was mesmerized by Levee and Sam from the very first chapter. Their chemistry is instant and the banter between them is simply irresistible! You will fall in love with Levee and Sam just like I did. They are both strong and lovable characters that complement each other to perfection. Both Levee and Sam are standing near that bridge for a reason. It broke my heart to learn the reasons behind those visits to the bridge. They both have demons to fight and with each other's help, they find the peace of mind they both have been looking for.
I don't want to say much more about their story because you need to read and FEEL every single moment of their journey. If you have not read a book by Aly Martinez yet, you are seriously missing out!!! This is the perfect book to get you hooked and it's a standalone. I have the biggest smile on my face. I can't wait to get my hands on my paperback copy of The Fall Up and fall in love all over again with Levee and Sam.
