Breaking up is hard to do.

It’s even harder when you’re not expecting it.

Brooke Jensen is a planner. Not only in her personal life but also professionally as one of the most sought after event planners in Chicago.

But, when the ideal life she built for herself, complete with handsome, long-term boyfriend and perfect apartment crumbles, she realizes there are some things you just can’t plan for.

While trying to start anew from her best friend’s guest room and discovering the best doughnuts in the city, an idea sparks to life when she meets Levi. He’s intriguing, funny, and shockingly good-looking, and what had been a few stray thoughts becomes a new passion for Brooke, a blog detailing learning how to be single. The project introduces Brooke to new people and experiences, and keeps returning her back to Levi.

But, Brooke learns kismet may have been wrong when she learns Levi is the last person she should be interested in.

Falling for the wrong guy once has Brooke hesitant to start a new relationship, but Levi is quickly proving that The Fallback might be even better.

This is my first Mariah Dietz book & to be very honest; I am adoring the way the author writes a sweet, delightful, steamy romance that has me swooning over not only the hero but also the heroine!  

Brooke lives a predictable life – she is a wedding planner and her job consumes her life; but she is on top and she has worked for it. She has one best friend forever and has been in a relationship for a while. Everything in her life is steady and smooth until she catches her boyfriend cheating leading her to move in with her family! She decides to work on herself and taking a break from dating. 

But it doesn’t take long for Levi, sweet, charming and utterly gorgeous Levi persuades her for one date. What could one date hurt, right? It wouldn’t change Brooke’s mind about working on herself – but it is delightful Levi who turns out to be even more persistent than she would have thought possible, for a man who is supposed to be unattainable.  

Through their slow burn romance; Brooke starts working on her new blog; mostly as a therapeutic measure – and it honestly was one of the most wonderful aspects of the book! I adored how Brooke came out of her shell; how she took control of her own life, finding confidence in not only herself but all her own independence.  

The slow build up to Levi and Brooke’s relationship was absolutely fun and spine tingling – I was rooting for this couple since their first meeting; and even though they took their time, it was definitely worth the journey they took to their happily ever after.  

The Fallback is more than a romance – it is a journey of woman to find acceptance for her & the kind of life she deserves. This was beautiful from start to finish and I am so glad that I got a chance to read an early copy of this romance!
