Easy Fall by S. Moose
Holy Swoonfest, y'all. Justin and Mallory's story is absolutely epic. It will give you all the warm and fuzzies, along with some major toe cramping from all the fire these two have every time they're in the same vicinity of one another. I loved their story so much it was literally impossible for me to put this book down.
Story Line: Mallory is our unlucky in love heroine. She wears her heart on her sleeve and dreams of that perfect Disney romance of her own. Justin hasn't had the easiest life. He has gone through more loss than one person should ever have to go through at his age. And with loss comes a strong stiff arm when it comes to letting people close. But all of those rules and boundaries come crashing down when Mallory and Justin meet. And can I just say, their meet-cute is so freaking adorable. It's unique and absolutely refreshing. As the title goes, these two are an easy fall for one another. And as much as I would love to tell you their story doesn't have any bumps or bruises, well, that would be a lie. Justin will make you want to kick him firmly in the shins at times, and Mallory will give you "SMH" moments too, but that's what makes these characters so wonderful - they're down to earth, totally relatable and so dang life like.
Interaction: I don't want to be redundant, but when I say these two are an easy fit, I don't mean it as a cliche. I don't know about all of y'all's personal love stories, but when Mr Laundry and I reunited after high school ( no we never dated in HS), it was totally an easy fit. Everything about our relationship and the progression of it was smooth and never awkward. That's how Mallory and Justin's relationship is as well. So, of course, I related to them in every way imaginable. Even that first laundry time, I was like yasssss, SAME GIRL. Anyways, what I'm trying to say here is if you're looking for a love story where the final two puzzle pieces finally click together, this is it. Look no further.
Laundry: As sweet and beautiful as this story is, make no mistake, there are sparks everywhere. Justin is hot AF, for starters. And nothing gets my stomach butterflies going like some 110 heat index laundry. I have a list of the hottest scenes from this book - zero shame for doing this btw - and I swear I crossed off and rearranged it after every single round of laundry. M and J are going to set your kindles and e-readers on fire, y'all.
Depth: We all hate spoilers, so I promise to tread lightly here. But remember when I said Justin has had a tough life? Well, remember that. For me, Justin's story is what truly drew me in. I'm not knocking Mallory or anything, but with each passing page I was falling more and more in love with this fictional man. He's perfectly imperfect. He's been through hell and back more than a time or two. And yet here he is, crushing life and finding the love of his life. I don't think I could have dreamed up a sweeter couple if I tried. And although I had to put my kindle down one time because I thought I was going to throw it across the room, I have zero complaints. Easy Fall is just as its title states -so easy to fall far. Justin and Mallory will restore all faith in love, destiny and patience. Okay, I still have to work on the patience thing, but you get the idea. 5 giant emoji stars with hearts for Easy Fall!
