Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 1, 2018
Our first goodbye wasn’t our choice.
Our second was…
What do people say about third chances?
I would never forget the moment I met Noah at six years old,
nor would I forget the way I grew into myself next to him; with him.
I didn’t want to forget the way he kissed me for the first time or the way we were two kids pretending it was okay to do adult things.
What I did want to forget was the reason I walked away… and how he had to let me go.
Loving you had a consequence that was too much to bear.
Now I was an empty shell, half of who I was, who I wanted to be…
And I came back home after four long years and this time, I knew you weren’t going to let me go.
I’m afraid… because remembering why I walked away from our love in the first place was the hardest part of all.
But in order for you to understand my relationship with Noah, I have to start from the beginning… Before our love had a price, before they called our love “puppy love”, before I fell from grace…
I was the happiest when I was with him.
Funny how my feet felt like lead the days I left you, Noah… But now that I was back, they only felt like running.
This is a standalone romance that tells Grace and Noah’s story starting at age six, but don’t let that detour you from reading their story. This is a book meant for adults and deals with mature themes. It’s a story about two kids loving each other and proving that maybe when you meet the one, you just know, even if you’re a kid.
Fall From Grace is a really good story. Noah and Grace were heartbreaking in their love, from discover to loss, they tore me apart. They were young, incredibly young, when they met and began their sexual explorations and though at times it was uncomfortable to witness, it was never gratuitous. This isn’t insta-love, this is ‘we’ve been through hell and back and still want to stay together’ kind of love, but it takes them through a really tough road to get there.
That journey to the end, well it was incredible to read about. Noah was willing to do pretty much whatever it took to become the man Grace needed, which only made it all the more gut wrenching. That kind of pure love, well it’s a heady thing and so powerful, and it was an absolute joy to read. Fall From Grace was a surprising read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.
