Well, Free Fall by Abigail Davies was a real surprise, in a very good way. I want to start off my review slightly differently by saying that, for me, although the cover is a pretty good representation of the main characters, it’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing when it comes to giving the reader any clue about the raw and gritty story inside. I love a dark romantic suspense and whilst this is not the darkest book I’ve read, it certainly has dark and violent elements to it. It is a first read for me by this author, and I enjoyed it very much.
There’s plenty of angst here, in the true sense of the word. Although we don’t get a great deal of insight into Lola’s past history, my heart went out to her for the situation she now finds herself in. She’s a real survivor and her strength and resilience blew me away. There are some unpredictable, volatile characters in this book and my trepidation and sense of foreboding increased with every turn of the page. Her saving grace comes in the form of Brody, who unbeknownst to her, is an undercover DEA agent and a real enigma. Their attraction is perilous and forbidden in more ways than one and by acknowledging their feelings and succumbing to that attraction, they’re playing a dangerous game. I can’t wait to see where this all ends.
There are several twists and turns along the way, which kept me guessing, and although I did predict one bombshell a while before it was dropped, this did not affect my enjoyment of the story. If you like a dark, unconventional, age gap, romance, I would highly recommend this book. If you don’t like a cliffy, I would still urge you to take a chance on this story, you may just wish to wait a couple of weeks until book 2 of the duet is published. I’ll be waiting for it when it is.
We were never meant to meet; our paths shouldn’t have crossed.
And yet they did.
As an undercover DEA agent, I always thought things through. I didn’t take chances, because I knew one misstep could have disastrous consequences.
Until I met her.
The little sister of my next target.
Lola was a feisty young woman trying to claw her way out of a bad neighborhood.
She was forbidden in every sense of the word, and not just because of the sixteen-year age gap.
We were taught to expect the unexpected, but nothing could have prepared me for what was about to happen.
I fell hard.
I fell fast.
I freefalled heart first.
But there was a secret I was keeping, and if revealed, it’d destroy the lives of those I’d vowed to protect.
One wrong move and everything could erupt in our faces.
All that remained was one question…
Was she worth it?
Free Fall is book one in the Fallen Duet. A two-part, angst-fuelled, gripping tale of forbidden love, complete with a jaw-dropping twist you’ll never see coming.

About Abigail Davies
Abigail Davies grew up with a passion for words, storytelling, maths, and anything pink. Dreaming up characters–quite literally–and talking to them out loud is a daily occurrence for her. She finds it fascinating how a whole world can be built with words alone, and how everyone reads and interprets a story differently. Now following her dreams of writing, Abigail has found the passion that she always knew was there.
When she’s not writing: she’s a mother to two daughters who she encourages to use their imagination as she believes that it’s a magical thing, or getting lost in a good book. If she’s doing neither of those things, you can be sure she’s surfing the web buying new makeup, clothes, or binge watching another show as she becomes one with her sofa.
