I wanted to jump. He made me fall.
As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.
Until he found me.
Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.
But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.
Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?
Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.

Book 1 in the Fall Up series. This book is a standalone.

Levee Williams is struggling. A world famous recording artist, the pressures of stardom and living under a microscope is taking its toll. Each night she finds herself looking over a bridge, pondering whether she can take anymore… until him.

Sam Rivers visits the bridge that changed his life every night. He sees her, and he feels her pain. One night he decides to cross the line between observer to saviour. But can he be her saviour when he is so much pain himself?

If you have read any of Aly Martinez’s books, then it won’t surprise you to find out that this is a real emotional read. It is a love story born from despair and mourning. A chance meeting between two spirits destined to heal each other. It is poignant and written beautifully.

This books explores suicide, depression and the feeling of despair and guilt. And although the subject matter would make you think that it would be a tough read, it isn’t. That is because of the two main characters that Aly has created. Levee and Sam are great characters and although their lives are heavy, together they are light-hearted and their romance is hopeful and uplifting. Of course you also have the secondary characters that bring the light relief; in particular Henry and Ryan.


An uplifting story of finding love in the most unlikely place. I now look forward to book 2, Spiral Down, which will follow the charming and funny Henry Alexander.
