I WOULD LOVE TO REVIEW THIS BOOK BUT ALL I CAN COME UP WITH IS THIS
Update May 2016This was the start of my love affair with Sarina Bowen s writing and series As you will see, it had a major impact on me with how our gal handled life and growth through adversity We read so much and some books are for pleasure, for introspection, for things we don t even know whyThis is a book to read for all of those things Do it and I promise you won t be sorry.May 15, 20154.5 NA Gold, Pause to Make You Think Stars 1 2Everyday we have moments it is up to us to pay attention We [...]
2.5 StarsMy problem with The Year We Fell Down is, I couldn t connect with the romantic aspect The characters are actually likeable and I have no problem with that, but the way the romance was delivered, it was kinda off I love friends to lovers tropes, unfortunately this one didn t get me Perhaps it s just me but I feel no chemistry between the two.The story centers around Corey Callahan, a college girl who became handicapped after an ice hockey accident She met the gorgeous ice hockey player A [...]
RATING 4.5 Sweet HEARTS 3 DThe Year We Fell Down is a delightful friends to lovers romance, taking all of us on a journey full of laughter and heat without weighing us down with unnecessary drama and conflict The thing is, we re all fragile It s just that most of our friends are lucky enough not to know it yet Corey is a young woman who continually inspires throughout with her ability to handle herself both emotionally and physically despite being paralyzed from the knees down Though she has mom [...]

The Year We Fell Down was a unique story about two college students trying to navigate college life with their injuries For Adam his injury is just a temporary thing, but for Corey it s now her life and she has been trying to come to terms with the fact her life will always be different now.I did enjoy this book but I honestly liked Adam and Corey way better as just friends I didn t see any connection between them other than one of friendship and there wasn t enough of them together in a relatio [...]

FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED I love New Adult romance but I also love books that have really unique storylines so when I first heard about this one and saw that it fell into both those categories, I knew I had to read it I never dreamed I d show up for college in a wheelchair The heroine of this story, Corey, expected to start college as a varsity hockey player but an unfortunate, life changing accident had her starting school in a wheelchair instead Determined not to let anything pull her down though [...]
Spoilers Alert This book was very painful to read I could not enjoy this book as much as I wanted to, because the author left for too long at about 75% for the hero to realized how bid of a mistake he was making by sticking out with his girlfriend I waited and waited for him to WAKE UP ASSHOLE but I never got that sense from him showing the reader his true affections for his best friend heroineAt a very crucial points where heroes POV was to be expected to have some clarification of what was he [...]

4.5 Love Sarina Bowen Reads StarsI love Sarina Bowen I will admit, I am late to reading her books, but I m slowly making my way through them and the Ivy Years series is slowly becoming one of my favorite NA college series I m reading the books out of order, but I m making my way through them.The Year we Fell Down has mixed reviews and because of that I didn t want to read it I think the reviews are valid and truthful, but it didn t affect me like the way I thought it would I thought I would be f [...]
I liked this one, but I ve read better from Sarina Bowen I m hopeful that the series continues to improve It was a little bland for me, but I saw potential there The narrators were good, especially the male narrator, but I thought the female narrator sounded a little old for new adult I still think that they did a very nice job, especially with the voices for other genders All in all, worth the money.
3 StarsOverall Opinion I ve had this in my tbr pile for a long time, and thought why not I m glad I read it, but I m also not going to be putting on my favorites shelf I understood many readers frustration with how long it took for them to get together, but all in all that really didn t bother me that much this time I think my biggest frustration was the lack of significant time with them as an official couple We waited a long time to get to this little bit that was mainly focused on family dram [...]
3.5 starsQuick and interesting read Still, Adam s story isah, unbelievable for me Corey is cool, though I don t know what else to say about this book it was an entertaining read Yes, it had its drama llama moments and some really weird relationships but I still enjoyed it This is definitely one of those rare occasions when I don t like the hero of the story I am getting a bit tired of the amount of unnecessary drama in NA books to be honest but I am still looking forward to reading the next book [...]
Great book It was unique I loved Adam and CoreyReview to come in 2018
This is such a sweet story It s a different type of sports romance where the sport of hockey is integral to the plot, and yet not a single game is played Corey has some insecurities as a result of being bound to a wheelchair, but she doesn t let her disability stop her from living a full life Her dry sense of humor and spunkiness make her quite endearing I wish I could say the same about Hartley He s a dreamy book boyfriend, and I admire a man who s faithful however, he s loyal to a fault He s s [...]
I really need to start paying closer attention to hockey playersAnother fantastic series filled with good looking hockey players Cory has suffered a horrible accident that has left her a paraplegic, so when she starts college she is given a accessible room With quite an amazing roommate Dana, I needed to give that girl a huge shout out Anyways Across the hall is Adam Hartley The captain of the hockey team that just so happens to have broken his leg and also needs an accessible room, and also has [...]
I m sticking to my 3.5 rating for the audiobook by Nick Podehl Saskia Maarleveld The hope fairy thing was slightly less annoying the second time around but still not my favorite However, I counted to find myself affected by these characters and their story so I m going to round up.Neither of these narrators were outstanding nor do they have a lot of range but they weren t atrocious.3.5The writing in this one isn t as polished as some of the others I ve read by Bowen and I admit the hope fairy bi [...]
This was so very good New Adult college romance with some meat on it s bones This heroine is paralyzed and still dealing with the lifestyle change and paradigm shift her life has taken She becomes close friends with the guy across the hallway who also needs a handicapped accessible dorm room Yes, we kind of know how the story turns out because it s a romance But this story wasn t all hearts and flowers and magic taking away all the bad things in life It was truly a story about dealing with whate [...]
Author pleaseeeeeeeee Need a novella after finishing this, because my heart isn t done with these two characters NEED MORE OF THEM PLEASE sobs and begs I am loving 2k16, another great book in the bag DThis book was a beautiful YA NAA must read, because the story is so unique and fresh and its just lovely how well the author has written the book, the characters and EVERYTHING.My only complaint is, it should have been longer, stretched out towards the end with MORE for us readers, but its cool I [...]
Ever So Mela Bloglovin Google 2.5This could have been great It could have been perfect Heck it was probably gonna get at least 4 stars outta me until it hit that 50% or so Then it just sucked balls But I digress Let s start with the good.Corey At times it was really hard to read this because the main character goes through a lot and it s really difficult to read about her struggles And I mean that in a good way The author conveyed her difficulties perfectly but also showed her strength in spite [...]
Addicted to college romance right now.
3.5 Solid StarsI admit I read romance mainly because of the male protagonists I want to know their thoughts and feelings, their experiences and motivations hence my almost complete immersion into the wonderful world of M M for the last 3 years However, this is the rare moment where the female was actually the gem of the story and where the male sorta kinda drove me nuts in regards to his unbelievable denial and cluelessness Basically, Corey is handicapped A crazy incident on the ice has left her [...]
I really enjoyed this book It was unique and well written I really loved the heroine Corey She was very strong and had a great personality I loved the relationship development between the characters and really liked the supporting characters as well I also like that this book really doesn t have a bad guy I really debated on what to rate this because I really don t like love triangles but I knew this book had one before going in Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I m so glad the author made [...]
