Book Review: The Harder I Fall by Jessica Gibson

The Harder I Fall (The Harder I Fall #1) by Jessica Gibson
Genre: New Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 22, 2014
Publisher: Self

Becca Langer was not a normal girl, she didn't have normal girl problems. For most of her life, she’s had to take care of herself, her younger brother Chad, and her drunk mother. She’s lived under the shadow of what her father did when she was ten years old. Forever branded by his actions.

College was her escape, she could get away and finally live. Her dream was to make it in the New York Ballet Company one day. That for her meant a long road full of hard work and dedication. She didn't have time for distractions, and Levi Klein was definitely a distraction.

Will Levi be able to crack through her tough exterior and really see the wounded soul underneath? Becca needs to be loved, but the question is, will she let Levi love her?

The Harder I Fall is the first book in The Harder I Fall/Falling Fast series by Jessica Gibson. Becca has had a rough life. She doesn't know how to truly love someone, aside from her brother. Her parents, the people who are supposed to love her most.. don't. She's seen some truly horrific things, so to say she has baggage is an understatement. With that being said, she seems to let people in pretty quick once she gets to college. Too quick to be believable in my opinion. The reasons behind the break up didn't really make sense to me either. Then, Levi's behavior after the breakup was a little much too. I sure wouldn't have taken him back. The story kept my attention and was entertaining, but I needed a little more something to make it feel real.

The Harder I Fall by Jessica Gibson was kindly provided to me by Mark My Words Publicity for review. The opinions are my own.

Jessica Gibson is a recovering bookaholic, she's down from four books a week to a more reasonable one. It was that love of words and creativity that made her dream about writing her first book. That dream was hidden for years, always put on the back burner, filed away in the "someday" section, until her husband Matt gave her the kick in the pants she needed to actually get off her butt and write.

Jessica and Matt live in Southern California and have a serious addiction to reality tv shows like Pawn Stars and American Restoration. They have one son and hope to add to the family in the near future.

Aside from writing, she runs an online event planning business called the Release Day Diva. In addition to novels, Jessica writes and maintains the blog Book on the Bright Side. Keep up with Jessica and her latest releases and events on her blog.
