REVIEW – IF WE FALL (What If Duet, #1) by Nina Lane


We fell in love. Then our world fell apart.

I wished so hard for Cole Danforth. And one day, he came true. He was my first boyfriend, my first lover, my first and only love. He should also have been my last.

But in a split-second, we were ripped apart, our lives broken, my heart shattered.

After ten years, I’ve returned to my hometown, the place of my greatest joy and darkest pain.

Cole is still here, but the beautiful boy I’d loved is gone. Now he’s a ruthless, unforgiving man determined to feed both my hatred and my lust.

Then our torturous past encroaches again, trapping us in a violent storm.

But this time, there is no escape.

I still taste her name in my mouth. It used to be my favorite word, even if I haven’t said it aloud in years. But it’s gone through my head a million times, always attached to a question. Where is she? How is she? Is she happy?




There are many authors that I love, but only a small group that I hold up high on a pedestal, and Nina Lane is a very special author to me. I know that I will forever swoon and sigh deeply whenever I hear the name Professor Dean West. Nina created one of my most cherished series, Spiral of Blissand it looks like, once again, she has written a story about two people who were lucky enough to find that one epic love with each other, but then were torn apart by an unthinkable tragedy.




Nearly a decade has passed where Cole and Josie have not been in each other’s lives. Thousands of miles, painful memories, and heartbreak have built an insurmountable wall between them. Now Josie has returned home and the couple soon comes face to face. All the feelings of their overpowering love and incredible loss come rushing back in.



Will they be able to find their way back to each other? Or are they doomed to live a lifetime apart, secretly pining away for one another?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
