Review: Break Your Fall by Malynda Schlegel

Reyna Stokes.
The two loves of my life, and I’m losing both.

The first—the sport I’ve dedicated most of my life to—has been slipping from my head and my heart since spring.

Setting foot on a college court, playing college ball, has been my dream since I was a kid. It’s bad enough that my dream is dying, but I literally can’t afford to not play ball. If I don’t play, I’m out. Everything I’ve worked for is gone. I keep telling myself it’s just a funk, because if I lose this for good? My future is done.

The second—the girl of my dreams—I’ve never really had.

I’ve loved Reyna for as long as I can remember, but I’ve been firmly planted in the friend zone. Julian’s the guy who got the girl. In the case of our friend group, he got both girls.

He hurt me by hooking up with Reyna, but he deceived Reyna by trying to love her when he knew he couldn’t, then let her go to be with the girl he could.

Julian and Camille broke her and left me to pick up the pieces.

As much as I’ve tried to play referee, friendships have been shattered. Sides have been taken. Lines have been drawn. And I’m now all Reyna has. She needs a friend. A line made deeper by the loss of two. A line that’s going to be harder for me to cross. But I’d be a fool not to try. A complete moron not to show her that I’m the guy for her. That I’ve always been the guy for her.

It’s our last summer together, and I have but a short time to turn everything around before I leave Bellsby behind for good.

First? Salvage friendships.
Second? Reignite my love for basketball.
And third – the biggest one of all? Get the girl.

Break Your Fall is the second book in the Bellsby Beach series and follows the story of Reyna and Tommy. Tommy has only ever loved two things, basketball and Reyna. So when Julian hooked up with Reyna it destroyed not only Tommy, but Reyna as well. You see, Julian wasn’t over Camille and ended up breaking Reyna’s heart. Tommy’s tried to be the good guy and help keep the peace, but that is proving to be easier said than done. Reyna may be broken, but Tommy is there to be the guy she needs and pick up her beautifully broken pieces.

Overall, I thought this book was a really great read. It was filled with lots of heart and I loved the way Tommy was with Reyna. He was in her corner when she needed him the most. The kind of guy that you hope will finally get the girl. My heart broke for Reyna and couldn’t help but root for her to find her much deserved happily ever after.

Break Your Fall was a terrific read from beginning to end. It captivated me from the very first page and I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for Tommy and Reyna.
