Synopsis: "The first time I returned to Lancaster was for my brother's funeral.
The second time was for Myra."
For twelve years, I lived alone in my cabin, building a life with my two bare hands. I was free from their rules, their policies, and their lies.
They are a cult.
My father is their leader.
To protect my brother's widow, I'm making her my wife. It's her only way out.
But drawn to the purity in her deep blue eyes and the innocence of her gentle voice, I wonder if I'm not the biggest monster of them all. I have to save her from them and myself. Because every second I spend with this timid woman, I fight the urge to claim her.
Own her.
Make her truly mine.
And I know it's wrong.
I will break her fall—if I don't break her first.

Break My Fall took me by complete surprise. I was expecting a dark, sexy thriller with some sweet moments thrown in and imagine my surprise when I quickly learned that this will not be it. Was I disappointed? A little bit. But the storyline turned out to be something so strong and alluring that you had no choice but fall under the spell and get completely swept away. This…was the unexpected and it worked!! 

Abraham has spent the past decade living another life from the one that was forced upon him. He’s his own man now, works with his hands, and provides a decent life for himself and he’s proud of that. Knowing that he’s doing things his own way and not having to answer to any higher ups or become any more brainwashed than he already was, Abe’s life is pretty damn good at the moment. But one phone call has the potential to ruin everything that he’s worked so hard for. One phone call, will have him back in a town that he wishes would burn to the ground already. 

Myra Hathaway has always been a good girl. Taught at a young age to be respectful and follow her religious path, Myra has followed the rules to a t and she has always been happy with her decision. That is until life decided to throw her a curve ball and everything she’s ever known suddenly becomes uncertain and her future is left up to religious cult members. When an offer is made from an unlikely ally, Myra knows that from this moment forward that life, will never be the same again. But how will two people from two different worlds now infuse their lives together? 

This book definitely gave the term “slow burn a whole new meaning but it needed to be done and I loved that!. From the progression of each character coming out of their shell and embarking on their new journey was an amazing thing to witness and I’m so glad it was done that way. Abe was this tough character that has always been a loner and it was so nice to see another side of him when it came to Myra and sharing his space. 

Seeing that this is only the first book in the series and there is so much to cover, I’m going to try and refrain myself from screaming that I need part two because that ending was cruel! What will be next for Abe and Myra? I guess we'll just have to wait and see for the next installment . 

A cloud of smoke followed the silver-haired woman out the door of the main building onto the covered porch outside, and she shot the butt of her cigarette into the dirt in front of the semi. “Your mother’s been trying to reach you.” My phone had died two days earlier, and I’d forgotten to bring a charger. Mom was the only person I still spoke with from Lancaster, but it was rare for her to call me, and I only reached out a few times a year. “Say what she wanted?” I asked and slid my hands into worn leather gloves. “Honey, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your brother passed away last night.” Ted Grier hung back in the doorway, watching. Both of their faces wore sympathy. “Pardon?” “Your brother passed, Abe. You should call her back. Come on in and use the phone.” I hadn’t spoken to my brother in years, but when I left home with no plans to return, I just assumed things would stay how I left them. They’d cling to their Bibles and bands and keep living in their own warped version of reality. They’d stay tucked under the strict thumb of the Legacies and God, or at least the way they interpreted him, and I’d live my life in the woods, free of their judgment and rules. Alone and how I liked it. They lived how they wanted, and I did the same. I squinted in the mid-day sun, and the tension in my neck pinched even tighter. “Jacob died?” Ted limped to the stoop, tapped a Camel from his pack and lit it. “Son, you wanna come inside for a minute? Call your family?” I did not. Calling them was the last thing I wanted. It was almost noon, and I still had more than half day’s work to finish. The tobacco in the air was thick as I pulled it into my chest. “I’ll call when I get home.” It was supposed to rain for the next four days in the hills, and there was work that needed to be done. Calling in the middle of the day wasn’t going to do anything but put me behind, and my brother would still be dead that evening.
