Savannah has been trapped in a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship for two years, too terrified and ashamed to reach out to anyone else for help. It takes being dumped in an Italian hospital with a life-threatening injury, surrounded by strangers who don't speak her language, before she is finally able to break away from her abuser. She returns to the only home she knew growing up, the guesthouse of the wealthy mansion where her mother had been a maid before she abandoned her there at fourteen.
The Talbots took her in and became her legal guardian. Their three daughters Lexi, Kit, and Maddi accepted her like a sister, but she never felt like she truly belonged. Already wounded from her mother's abandonment, she was incapable of feeling like anything but an outsider, which made her an easy target when her boyfriend Toby entered the scene and began telling her just that. She didn't belong there. She was a burden. She belonged with him because nobody else cared about her. After hearing those things long enough she began to agree with him, eventually letting him drag her all the way to Italy so that he could keep her under his thumb while he went to college.
When Savannah finally returns home it is to find her adoptive family in the middle of their own tragedy. Matthew, the family patriarch, has recently died under suspicious causes, leading some to wonder if he was actually murdered. Along with the strong emotions in the house, Savannah also has to make sense of the instant attraction she feels for Jared Corbit, Lexi's supposed boyfriend. Even though he's been living in the house with the family for a while, people are starting to wonder why he and Lexi don't share a room and never seem to be affectionate with each other. To make things more confusing, Jared seems to be just as drawn to Savannah as she is to him. He is full of mixed signals and she knows that there is definitely something more going on.
I loved this story. I loved that Ayden Morgen didn't shy away from all of the hard decisions and victim shaming that victims of abuse often suffer. Savannah is an excellent example of just how broken someone can become when they get trapped in a situation they can't get themselves out of. I also loved how this book shows that you don't have to be beaten to be a victim of abuse.
The sex scenes, when we finally get there, are sizzling and delicious.
The plot that develops around Savannah, Jared, and the rest of the Talbot family does lean towards the melodramatic at times, but it makes for an exciting page turner. I don't want to give out any major spoilers because you should experience them for yourself. I will say that I was really impressed with the way that so many of the characters were not afraid to call each other out on all of their bullsh*t. Things would happen that made me so frustrated at one character or another, but none of them made it through the book without their actions being addressed. Definitely refreshing!
If you like a little melodrama and a steamy hot romance, give All Falls Down a try!
"Beautiful girl," he says. "Don't you know I'd do just about anything to make you happy for the rest of your life? To take care of you and love you like you deserve?" ― Jared Corbit
Where do I start. I enjoyed this book, kept me on the edge of my seat and took me on one emotional roller coaster from the beginning to end. This was a very complicating storyline. Betrayal, heartbreak, mystery, romance, so many frickin secrets and suspense. I'm not a spoiler. So, I can't say to much (without giving the story away) I will leave it at that. But what I will say, I normally love my main male characters to be: Dark, Damaged Psychopaths... Lol. Jared Corbit; he was so loving, protective, and so damn romantic to Savannah. *Sigh* He just wanted to break down her walls and show her, her worth. I really enjoyed the ending with Jared's POV. Off to read book 2
