Reviews Further To Fall

  • Cristina | CristiinaReads
    ➳When an MMA fighter meets his biggest rival of a warm-hearted school teacher, sparks fly, and the chemistry between both individuals takes a stake claim in one's heart... ➳When Catherine Cowles contacted me to read her novel, I was not expecting to fall head-over-heels in love with Carter and Austin and their true passion that they have towards each other. There is no denying that both have become one of my favorites this year. As a first po...

    Further To Fall is the debut book by Catherine Cowles. Let me tell you that Catherine is making her entry into the world of books with a huge bang. I loved this book. It has everything that for me, makes a book unputdownable. Especially the second half. Carter McCarthy was a small town Georgia girl, fresh out of college with her elementary education degree, ready to make a difference in the world. She took a job in a low income area of Los Angele...

    FIVE STARS*ARC of this book generously provided by the author and I'm leaving my honest review*“I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” - Lisa KleypasOMG! This book! This book was EVERYTHING! T...

    Loved this book! From a new-to-me author, I was captivated by the storytelling and the cast of well drawn, believable characters. When pick up this book, clear your day because you’ll be captured and pulled right in. I hope there are more books to come as I am anxious to see what happens next. Very well done!

    I couldn’t put this book down! I found my self trying to slow my reading so it wouldn’t end. Austin is a MMA fighter striving to be at the top of his sport. A heartbreaking experience with a woman has left him cold and very hard to reach. Carter is a grade school teacher who loves teaching and the children. An unlikely meeting occurs and Austin treats her like a groupie, not good. His best friend Liam is a rock star and Carter’s best friend...

    I love MMA Romance. I don't know why but I am always attracted to them so I was very excited to read this one. Further to Fall is Catherine Cowles debut book where an elementary school teacher, the proverbial good girl and an up and coming MMA fighter come together. While the story was nice, it just didn't check all the boxes I was hoping it was going to and by large I think it has to do with the heroine and her overall personality. Carter is inn...
  • Truddy Hoffmann
    I really fell hard with Futher To Fall! The characters are very realistic and I love that the heroine fell for her rock star best friend’s best friend. It would have been too cliche to have her fall for the life long friend turned famous rock star and Catherine sure gave us something much better. Austin is just yummy! This story had it all...friendship, love, angst, and the best surprise of all was the suspense that you don’t expect in a roma...
  • Dawn Byrne
    This was my first book by this author. I have to say it won't be my last. Can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the crew! Thanks for the amazing read!
  • Jessica Marecle
    Beautifully written story with a lot of swoon, quite a bit of suspense and a lot of feels! Loved this roller coaster ride between Alpha Austin and Sweet Carter. Loved it!

    4.5 Stars We all have our go-to authors. Do you know what’s better than one-clicking one of their books? Finding someone new to add to your list. Catherine Cowles came out of nowhere and knocked me straight on my ass with her debut novel Further To Fall. When Carter meets up and coming MMA fighter, Austin, sparks don’t exactly fly. They spark and then kind of fizzle as soon as Austin opens his mouth. He’s a gruff mountain of a man. To put i...

    I absolutely loved Austin and Carter. I wanted to slap him at times but this beauty and beast where the perfect match.Full review to come!
  • Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)
    Carter is a new to town teacher with a good friend who's now a famous musician. It's through this friend, Liam, that she meets gruff, scowly MMA fighter, Austin. At first glance (OK, maybe at two and three glances), Austin seems like a complete asshole. He treats Carter like she's some bimbo out to divest Liam of his money, latch onto his fame, or just seduce him into her bed. How little he knew her, though, because Carter is the furthest thing f...
  • Britt Red Hatter Book Blog
    A whirlwind roller coaster full of the feels. Further to Fall will grab your heart and keep you hooked start to finish with the non stop swoon, suspense, and emotion. This book took me through every emotion and then some while I was reading. Creating a connection with these characters so deep it was like I was right there with them through the ups and downs of their story. Austin is a guy who will have everyone fighting over him as their Book boy...

    School teacher, Carter, moves to LA to teach in a struggling area. Thankfully, she is moving close to her Rock-star best friend, Liam…and his not-so-friendly bodyguard and MMA fighter, Austin. Although Carter and Austin don’t hit it off, the attraction is hard to miss. Eventually he takes her under his wing and in the process teaches her some self-defense moves, which she is able to put to good use. The MMA parts included in this are so good!...

    Wow, talk about a heart-stopping read. This incredible story about MMA Fighter Austin and shy schoolteacher Carter really blew me away. I couldn't put it down and I definitely lost sleep over it. It was an emotional rollercoaster that's for sure. We follow Austin and Carter's complicated relationship starting with them hating each other, then becoming fast-friends and leaving us dying to know if they can ever be more than that. The story is a wel...
  • Beverly Bowman
    This was an awesome debut novel. I was drawn into the story immediately. The H/h were both very likeable and you'll be rooting for their HEA. The story had a little bit of everything: friends to lovers, second chance relationship, violence, a stalker, and a dog with an attitude that made me laugh out loud. I'm looking forward to hearing more from this new author!
  • Valerie
    Loved this book tremendously!!! I look forward to more from Catherine Cowles. I was drawn in from the first page to the end!
  • christy Haag
    I really enjoyed this book. It will be re-read for me. Loved Austin the big tough fighter and Carter the sweet school teach. This was my first Catherine Cowles book but it definitely won't be the last.
  • Pauline
    I loved this book. Catherine Cowles wrote with such clarity and descriptiveness that I could feel the emotions of the characters as if I were there in person. I loved that it isn't the rock star that Carter falls for, but the sulky friend. Austin, an aspiring MMA fighter thinks Carter is one of the band groupies that hang around his friend Liam and is really rather unpleasant to her at their first meeting. Liam soon puts Austin straight and makes...
  • Bookgasms Book Blog
    Anyone that knows me knows that MMA romances are my weakness. I love the intensity of the ring and the fighters and how that heat and passion culminate into a relationship. Just by reading the blurb, Further to Fall seemed to tick all the boxes that I love in these kind of stories. A good girl, an up and coming MMA fighter and a second chance to make things right. Unfortunately, this story was a bit of a mixed bag for me as I had huge issues with...
  • Laid-back Book Bitches
    Wow this was an amazing debut novel! I loved this book, I could not put it down. I was drawn in right away. I am a sucker for a good MMA. Carter and Austin start out as friends, but quickly learn that their feelings run way deeper. I honestly was puling for Carter ad Austin from the very beginning. This book keep me guess till the very end, I loved the mystery aspect. Austin has been hurt before by a ex and Carter really has no experience. Will t...
  • Liza
    Wow the emotions Carter goes through was very relatable! The concerns, fear, courage, love, honesty, and especially communication are all part of any strong relationship which we get to witness with Carter and Austin particularly when obstacles are thrown in their way. The writing was great and I hope we get to see Taylor and Liam.
  • Smashlybookalicousreviewingchicks
    Further to Fall is the authors debut book and you would never know this. The writing is spot on, captivates your attention throughout the whole book and you fall in love with not only the main characters, but the secondary characters as well. I would love to see these secondary characters Fall down the road! This is a second chance, enemy to friend-lovers romance. Carter is a teacher and wants to make a difference in someone’s life even for tho...
  • Izzie d
    I think this author is new and after reading this book I will be looking out for further books depending on the direction she writes in, but I will definitely take a look.The book is well written. Its a good premise for a story and lots of potential for secondary characters to have their own books.Its a slow burn. Best friends to lovers romance. Austin is loyal, protective hard working and total 'Alpha' but he is also scarred by a really bad expe...
