When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro, five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving into temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life, something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.…

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him, a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again

The Review: 4.5 stars!

This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year because of Samantha Young’s ability to write damn good romance stories that are full of angst and drama and, Fall from India Place didn’t disappoint me at all!

In order for the series to progress to where we are now, several years have passed and now it’s time for Hannah and Marco’s story. Hannah who is now 22 years old has been deeply affected by the lost relationship she had with Marco. Unwilling to love again and now finding it hard to connect to any other man, Hannah’s completely focused on her work, being a teacher. It’s not until Hannah and Marco bump into each other at a wedding that Hannah suddenly finds herself terrified of the feelings she has for Marco. He’s hurt her once, he could do it again but will Hannah give herself chance to find out what happened years ago but more importantly, will she give Marco a second chance?

Fall from India Place is a welcomed addition to the On Dublin Street series! Fantastic characters, an intense and lovable romance and a gripping plot, what’s not to love? 

Since we were first introduced to Hannah and Marco’s relationship, I think it may have been book two or three in the series, I was always curious to see if we would get their story but mostly, how Samantha Young would write it mainly because of the ages of the characters when we first introduced them. The way the author has done the story is great. Skipping several years ahead was a great idea, it works well within the series and you don’t miss out on a thing.

Hannah and Marco’s story was just as intense as ever, and it was one that as the story progresses you can’t help but fall in love with the characters. Their story isn't easy and it really tugs on your emotions but it was simply great to read. The only thing that I wished was that Hannah and Marco's story was longer. I finished and I couldn't believe it was the end, compared to the other characters stories, this was quite small, small but still good but I wanted it longer.

In all, I can not wait for more from Samantha Young. Cole's story is going to rock and I'm praying she doesn't stop there, I'm hoping she decides to continue with new characters. I can hope! 

Thank you to Piatkus for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
