Book Review: Falling Back Together by Kristen Hope Mazzola


Published: May 18 2014


“I don’t know if it’s fate, coincidence, or my curse, but I’m still breathing, and my breaths are for you.”

Mags McManus is far from a normal woman in her mid twenties. Being a war widow, a business professional, and a brokenhearted train wreck only skims the surface of the layers of who Margret McManus truly is. Waking up in a hospital bed, alone and confused, Mags once again has to pick up the pieces of her shattered heart. With her best friends by her side, Mags slowly starts to learn the answers she so desperately longs for. But is everything going to continue to spiral out of control? Or is there a light at the end of this dark, twisting tunnel where all the broken pieces can finally fall back together? 

Note from the author: Second book in the two part Crashing Series. Crashing Back Down should be read before Falling Back Together to avoid spoilers. A portion of all royalties from Falling Back Together are donated by the author to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation. 

**18+ for sexual situations, cursing, and adult content.***


Kristen Mazzola wrapped up her first debut series wonderfully.

I liked how we got to see growth in the characters. From the first novel till this one we got to see each of them experience hard situations and fun ones. We learned more about their pasts and got to see the deeper side of what made them who they are.

Mags began to step up and work on herself. She took time to herself from the man she loved to finally mourn the one she lost. The huge twist from the first novel slowly begins to heal everyone involved. As each character, Mitch, Cali, Mags and Walker work to repair themselves and their relationships.

Side note: Loved getting to know more about Mitch as he became one of my favorites from the first. Oh and he’s a firefighter! Mhmmm. Yum! 😉

The best thing about this book is its a story tackling an on the fence issue. Where is the line between hatred and forgiveness? When is lying to protect those you love right and wrong? Especially when you truly believe in your heart your putting their needs above your own no matter the cost. I feel a lot of people can relate to this and that’s why its such a good read.

It brings out raw honesty on the issue between the characters. They’re working through their problems even if they had previously run from them. They took their time to breathe and learn how to move on. It’s okay to go back and forth with your emotions and with your life. Eventually when its meant to be you’ll fall back just right.

Congrats Kristen, on another great book.
