Review

"A book that you will not be able to put down as you explore Brazil with Julia and Blake and feel you are there with them... A love story you root for because they are worth it." - Books Are Love

This is the kind of book that you can't help but fall in love with--from the story to the characters, it's a cut above the norm and a read I would highly recommend to fellow readers of contemporary romances." - Bookaholics

The ending, had me in tears, but in a good way! My heart melted reading this book! And, as the weather gets cold here, it was warming, to read about a warm paradise!" - Ebooks Galore

A beautiful romance full of passion and adventure." - Linda, Goodreads

From the Author

How to Fall was inspired by the time I spent in Brazil from 2004 to 2005 and again in 2006. I feel in love with the beautiful scenery and the wonderful people I met, and I wanted to bring that sense of adventure, possibility, and passion to life on the page. I hope you enjoy reading about Julia and Blake's adventures in Brazil as much as I enjoyed writing about them!

How to Fall is a standalone contemporary romance from author Rebecca Brooks and is my very first read from the author and what a wonderful revelation it was! Combining vivid imagery of the locales and sites that the main characters, Julia Evans and Blake Williams, were surrounded with and visited with a love story that began with two people who indulge in their physical attraction to one another only to have it evolve into something that involved deeper emotions and feelings made this such a sumptuously satisfying read. Discovering a new author, especially one that I believe is worth watching out for, is icing on the cake.

Julia and Blake are two characters who have lives waiting for them in their respective countries--the United States for Julia and Australia for Blake--and the need to get away from it all is what has led them to be on a new continent and their paths crossing. Brazil is merely where their journeys intersect, a backdrop of sorts, because what leads them to contemplate the state of their minds and hearts is when they actually meet and become immersed in one another. Even as they try to escape what's going on back home, reality has a way of making its presence felt no matter how far away you try to distance yourself from everything.

Aside from Julia and Blake, the supporting cast of characters, particularly their travel companions--Jamie and Chris, an Aussie couple, and Lukas, a Dutch photographer--play an important role to the main characters' story. There are parallels that one can't help but notice between what Blake experienced in his own past relationship and what Julia believes is happening within the triumvirate of Jamie, Chris, and Lukas.

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I could not put this down. I think it was Blake’s journey and self discovery that kept me in the moment more than anything. He drew me in. His pain, his confusion, his journey to figuring out himself and what he wants. His loss and loss of identity was so heartwarming and heartbreaking.

this is my first time reading Rebecca Brooks and I can say I look forward to her next book. The writing is flirtatious and insightful. We see perspectives that draw on introspection. Details that allow you to picture the scene and moment. A romance that is denied and fought but not because the feelings aren’t there but because of fear. Fear and being at a loss of what to do and who you are.

Each character gives you insight into not only themselves but the others around them. We go on a journey that is fun and addictive. At times sexy, sensual and others flirty and fun. Each adventure has Blake and Julia shed a piece of the past and help create who they truly are. Each fall off the cliff helps them let go and be free to explore and experience life without restraints or fear. The fear they hold onto is one of not wanting to get hurt. For blake the story slowly reveals why this is. For Julia we see that she has a rough journey of self discovery and love. it is her time with Blake that helps her free herself from the chains of expectation and fears. He is her rock and support. He helps her get to where she needs to be and gives her the freedom to get there on her own even when he is there with her. Julia sees that her friends past shouldn’t hinder her from being her. That she needs to grow and fly and let someone in. That someone is Blake.

Blake is sweet, kind and generous. Lost though.

Actual 3.5
Julia starts out quite bland-the rule follower per say-you know there is more to her besides the boring existence she has mapped out for herself, it's just a matter of finding the right key to click into her personality.
Blake appears to be the opposite of Julia with his vibrant personality and zest for adventure. He's laid back and sweet but sort of hiding from reality for a little while.
These two meet under interesting circumstances and what starts out as a one night stand becomes a lot more during the course of the week Julia vacations in Brazil.
The characters were reasonably fleshed out and had fun personalities and decent chemistry. I did feel, however, that the main focus was Brazil. The lush descriptions really made me feel like I was there-which was great-but I did wish there was more emotional development between Julia and Blake and more discussion between them regarding their relationship They had their moments, yet it seemed to be second fiddle to the setting more often than not. Also, I am seriously hoping there is a lost chapter somewhere for an epilogue..I need closure! The ending felt slightly rushed and was left open-ended so it's readers choice as to what you think happens afterwards and that's perfectly fine-I just like tidy endings with a definitive HEA!

High school math teacher Julia has always played it safe, but for once in her life, she's going to do something daring, starting with a one week trip over Christmas to Brazil. Ending up at a hostel in rural Brazil, she meets Blake, a handsome Australian, who has run from a scandal back home and is seeing South America, one country at a time. While their paths are only meant to overlap for a night, their instant connection becomes a one night stand that becomes more, when Blake decides to ditch his plan and stay with Julia, first at the hostel, then on to Rio where they spend the rest of an incredible week together. But when the New Year dawns and it's time for Julia to return home, reality comes back into focus - will they be able to take what they've built and make it stronger or will it all remain a vacation fantasy?

What a fun, sexy story! The setting is idyllic, first with the beautiful location in Brazil, both where the hostel is located and then in the cosmopolitan city of Rio. As an armchair traveler, I love to read about warm, sunny locations and this one is obviously well researched, from the food to the clothing, to the customs and the beautiful vistas. You are immersed in the culture of Brazil right from the start and it certainly sets the mood for the vacation fling that starts when Julia and Blake first meet and realize that they can be whomever they want, and in fact they can be wholly themselves, without judgement or expectation. They have a sizzling sexual chemistry, and at first that's what it is all about - the chance, especially for Julia, to indulge herself in something that she'd never do at home. Their sex scenes are super hot as Julia loses her inhibitions, trusting Blake to provide what she needs.
