Eleven years ago, I saved her. I loved her. But they took me away from her and locked me up. For two years, all I could think about was her. She consumed me. Took up every room in my head and gave me something to focus on, knowing I would see her soon.

Nine years ago, I watched her as she walked down the aisle and into the arms of a man who wasn't me. My brother. I left my home and never looked back.

Now, I'm staring at seven letters, each envelope stamped with one word in bold, red ink: URGENT.

I have no choice but to go back home. Seeing her will be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. But in order to reconcile with my past, I have to face my present. Even if the thought of seeing her, knowing that she is out of my reach, kills me.

I have no idea what awaits me, but I can only hope that the demons of my past will finally be buried and put to rest.

**Due to possible triggering descriptions of self-harm, and some sexual situations this book is not recommended for anyone under the age of 17 years old**

I purchased Fall Back Skyward late last year, and I actually forgot that I had it. So while I was scrolling through my books, it popped out at me and I had to read it. Now, I am kicking myself that I hadn’t started it earlier, because it was an amazing read! My heart broke in the beginning, then I fell in love, only to have that love shattered once again! However, with communication and persistence, I had hope that Cole and Nor would be able to find happiness once again.

The book is separated into five parts, alternating between the past and the present. I really enjoyed this layout, because in the Present I had questions as to what went on, then I went back into the Past and experienced Cole and Nor falling in love from the day they met. It was so sweet to see their connection blossom and watch them fall deeply for one another, despite having obstacles in their way.

Nor had fought hard to be the strong young woman that I met in the past. She had demons that would resurface, but with help and guidance she was on the right track. Cole also had his setbacks, but he didn't let them stop him. He was growing into a successful young man that any parent would be proud of. The more time Nor and Cole spent together, I could see how special their relationship was and I knew that they were soul mates that belonged together.

In the present, Nor and Cole had been apart for so long and had suffered so much loss. My heart ached for them and their families, as they tried to find their way once again. Even though it was hard, it was truly was a beautiful journey of self discovery for the both of them.

This was my first Autumn Grey read and she blew me away! There were some sensitive issues that she touched on, but it was woven into the story together perfectly! The romance was intense, and there were moments that had some suspense, but it was the way this story was pieced together that made it the perfect masterpiece that I thought it was! I cannot wait to read the next book, and experience another journey from this world.
*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

There were a few great swoons I could've picked, and it was a hard decision to pick these two. But I hope you fall for Cole like I did with these little snippets!

“If that’s how you feel,” I say and gesture to the note, “then why haven’t you kissed me yet?” I blurt out.
Gosh, Nor. Desperate much?
“I wanted to kiss you every time we were together, but I couldn’t. Do you know why?” He leans forward and brushes his knuckles against the back of my hand and says, “Anticipation.”

He lifts his head and brushes his thumb along my bottom lip. A groan rumbles in his chest and that is the only warning I get as his lips crush into mine, swallowing my squeal of surprise.
“Fuck, Snowflake. If I had known kissing you would be this intoxicating, I would have claimed this perfect mouth sooner. But I was a coward. I need to kiss you,” he says, pulling back slightly. The words are a little unclear, affected by the same hurricane that’s destroying my thoughts inside me. “I’ve wanted to kiss you since I saw you glare at me from your front lawn. You’ve crawled under my skin so deep, I have to kiss you to seal you in. Never leave.”
