The Fear of Falling 

Amanda Cowen 
Publication date: October 8th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

When Ella Jones’ twenty-first birthday ends with a bang – literally – she never imagined it would be with her best friend since freshman year, Ryan Owen.
A year later, after their so called “mistake”, they’re still best friends and about to rock their Senior year at the University of San Francisco. But when Ryan returns from spending a summer in Australia and brings back a friend, Liam George, who takes an immediate liking to Ella, Ryan starts to question the Aussie’s intentions with his best friend. The trouble is, Ryan has a girlfriend of his own, and Ella and Ryan swore they would never cross that line again – until they do.
They try not to let their second slip up affect their friendship, but when Spring Break forces them to vacation under the same roof; and Ryan’s ex walks back into his life, Ella is shocked by a fierce stab of possessiveness. And when Ella continues to see Liam, Ryan finds himself plagued by unfamiliar jealousy. With their friendship strained for the first time, Ella and Ryan face an alarming truth: Maybe they can’t be just friends. Maybe they are falling faster than expected. And maybe, deep down, they want to.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Firstly, wow. Ella and Ryan's friendship was very sweet. One of my favorite themes is friends to lovers. The suspense of whether they would push through and ignore the "what ifs" had me biting my nails. Though I kinda liked Liam, it was major obvious Ella would never be truly happy with him, because she's got her sights on Ryan. I was glued to this book from start to finish. Amanda Cowen is a new author to me. I'm surprised I didn't read her work sooner. I enjoyed this book so much. Highly recommend it.

I received an ARC of this book, via Xpresso Book Tours, in participation of this blog tour. This is my honest review.
