The Fear of Falling by Amanda Cowen – Review

The Fear of Falling was so much more than it would be! I am definitely a fan of Friends to Lovers college romance stories and this one did not leave me disappointed.

There are times when you just want to slap Ella around and tell her to just get over herself but if I think about if I were in her shoes, nope I’d probably do the same exact thing! Ella and Ryan have such a great friendship filled with traditions that had me smiling ear to ear. There is a particular scene that just got me, I don’t even know why because it was such a small thing, but yeah.

No spoilers but I will say it involves a bucket and rocks. 😉

Just writing this review has me wanting to go back and re-read their story.

If you find yourself struggling because you’re growing frustrated with the whole “why don’t they just get over themselves already!?” try to relax. Because, all good things come to those who wait 😉



The Fear of Falling
Amanda Cowen
Publication date: October 8th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen.

A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do.

They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to.
