To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I started reading this thinking to myself that I'd just read a couple of chapters before bed......12.30am I was still reading and forced myself to put it down as my eyes were closing!!
Thoroughly enjoyed this, so much so that I think I will re-read it again straight away just to see if I missed anything. The story reeled me in right at the start and held and captivated me the whole way through. Hailee is just adorable, a tad fiesty and says what she thinks......unless its about love! OMG Finn.......serve that fine man up on a plate to me please! A man that oozes sex appeal AND can cook! I loved the restaurant/kitchen and all the details about the food and taste testing. The way Alyne wrote about the ingredients and the tastes had me feeling like I was right there in the kitchen cooking and tasting. Then there was the sizzles outside of the kitchen and I feel the sex was balanced so right against all the other details of the story.
I'm glad we got to see Mama Rose again, and of course once again a few tears were shed.....but what a beautiful woman! Loved Hailee's new best friends Georgia and Enzo and hope we get to hear more of their stories at some point. It's also great that we got to have a bit of Dean and Emma in there as well and catch a bit more of a glimpse into their life. TO finish it off.....a wonderful epilogue.
Today I had the joy/ heart crushing pleasure of finishing How We Fall. Joy in this is one of the best books I have ever read and heart crushing because it's over now. God I cannot say enough good things about this book. Finn King... He is mine and I am claiming him and no one can have him. He is my go to book boyfriend now.
Alyne has a way with words. I have said it before and I will say it again. Hot Damn, she is what authors should aspire too. She pulls you into a story and you are sucked in. I have one of the worst book hangovers I have ever had.
Do you like food, chemistry, and tears of pure happiness and joy? Then read this book, and NOW!
If you haven't read an Alyne Hart book (or even if you have) then you definitely are in for a treat! I have never ever read one of her books before but felt like this story was a good place to get my feet wet, man was I right. This book had everything for me that was a recipe for a great romance. It has those hot and heavy moments, the raw emotion, and the hesitation because both protagonists have been burned by love before. It certainly was baked to perfection and I can't wait to see what else Ms. Hart has in store! 5 stars across the board madam. Now excuse me, I must go read her other works I bought. ;)
A phenomenal read that will leave your heart smiling. Finn and Hailee are two beautiful souls that deserve their own happiness.
Favorite quote: Finn to Hailee ~ "I'll chase you forever, I'll promise you everything I have to give, but you need to let me in and give me the chance to prove you wrong. You deserve to be happy, and so do I. This isn't how you get hurt, Hailee. Not with me. This is how we fall, so hard and so dangerously beautiful that we lose ourselves and leave our fears behind us."
My first read from Alyne Hart and I have a new favorite to add to my growing list of favorite indie authors. I'm not sure if culinary romance is considered an actual genre but maybe it should be. Ms. Hart's vivid descriptions of foods and flavors had my mouth watering. The love story is front and center but it flowed well with the foodie portions of the book. This was a fun, light, book and would make a perfect beach read. Just one click, you'll be happy you did!
