Five years ago Houston and Rory had an intense relationship that ended badly. When Rory meets Houston again very unexpectedly through work, both are thrown for a loop. Their love was complicated when they were in college, but things are even more complicated now.
They have a long history together going back to about their teen years. Rory is currently trying to make a good life for herself and she's in the middle of writing a book while Houston is trying to branch out and develop new lines of business.
Seeing each other again brings back the passion, love, and resentments of their past. Neither have fully healed from their break-up or the tragedy that brought them together, but Houston is still keeping secrets that would impact Rory. Rory doesn't have the complete story and Houston has his reasons for keeping quiet.
The Way We Fall is a great start to a new series and features real and complicated characters. There's heartbreak, secrets, lies, friendship, surprises, new opportunities, and second chances. Cassia Leo weaves an interesting and unexpected secret throughout the story. Ms. Leo also provides interesting secondary characters in Kenny and Troy. Fans of the Shattered Hearts series will want to read this book!
