Fall From India Place by Samantha Young

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...

It seemed like just yesterday when I started reading the first book of this series and I can still remember reading Hannah in that book. She was a young teen then and it's still a bit hard for me to accept that she had already grown and having relations with a man! Hahaha. I'm such a mama with these characters.

I was rooting for this duo when I first read about them as teenagers in the previous book in the series. I did all that but never expected they would eventually have their own book. And what a book it is. Wow.

I didn't know that the teenage love between Hannah and Marco that I read then would forever change their lives. I really felt for what Hannah went through as a young lady. It couldn't have been easy and for her to try to trust again the same person that nearly destroyed her life was probably one of the hardest things she could've decided to do.

I thought it was kind of unfair realizing that Marco had moved since they had broken up. I thought his current situation was a bit convenient for what was going on in Hannah's life. But then I got THAT ending. No such thing as convenient now as these two are determined to drum up their own happy ending, no matter what.

It was beautiful to read about people who love each other enough to learn to accept the past, no matter how painful. And then move on from there knowing that trust, although hard to come by, will be the catalyst to keep a relationship together. 

Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.
