Title: Free Falling 
Author: GL Chapple 
Genre: Romance 
 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Maddie
Love shouldn’t hurt. 
Love should make your heart soar – not break it apart 
Love should make you feel safe – not broken and vulnerable. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Marcus
Anger shouldn’t be all-consuming. 
Anger at her for leaving me 
Anger at her for showing for me that life could be more – and making me crave it. 
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. 
 
Two damaged people, free-falling through life. 
Two friends. Two choices. Two questions. 
If you’re unable to save yourself, can you really help anyone else? 
Can happy-ever-afters exist if you no longer believe in fairy tales?
 
 
 
 
 
Friends told me how sorry they were – but it wasn’t their fault. They told me

I needed to move on – as if it were that fucking easy, and I could just

pick up and carry on. They apologised for my loss – as if I’d

misplaced an item of value, instead of the person that had helped

hold me together, all the broken, messed-up pieces of me…It

devalued her and everything that we had, and I hated that they could

make such stupid, thoughtless and ridiculous statements. I knew

they cared and I knew they were concerned, but it took all my

willpower not to punch them and tell them to fuck off and leave me

alone. I couldn’t give them what they wanted from me. I didn’t want

to talk. I didn’t want to feel…

 

My Review

This is the third book I’ve read from Ms. Chapple, and let me tell you her writing just keeps getting better. The writing in Free Falling flowed so well, it seemed comfortable, as if she was telling her own story.
I loved Marcus from the first 2 books. I was completely heartbroken when he lost his girlfriend, so I was happy to learn that he was going to get a chance to maybe find love again. I love that Nate and Lena as well as Gramps make their appearance again. Gramp’s advice was wise, but given in the typical hilarious “Gramp’s style”. That man and his adventures in the nursing home are worthy of their own book.
What I loved most about this book was that Marcus and Maggie were real people. Their struggles were real, and their feelings and reactions to what was happening around them were real. They both were struggling to move on, and could have easily gotten together to try to cover the pain. But that would have ruined their friendship. This story is about the journey to finding one’s self and healing yourself before looking for the one who completes you.
I was completely lost in this story from the very beginning. I loved the easy connection that Marcus and Maggie had. Their chemistry was amazing even when neither one of them were in a place to do anything about it. They brought out the best in each other and I often found myself laughing at their back and forth texts. Once they got together, let me tell you…they were hot, hot, hot! I knew from the beginning they were meant to be together, and the journey Ms. Chapple took us on was nothing short of amazing.
Ms. Chapple is quickly moving to the top of my go-to authors list. I’ll be on pins and needles waiting for her next book.

GL Chapple is a welsh author that strongly believes she was born in the wrong country. She lives for hot, sunny days (of which there are never enough in her country of birth and residence!) Despite this, she can often be found at the beach with her husband and two young children. She has always loved to read and write and promised herself, one day, she would have a book bearing her name on her shelf. She will read almost any genre and despite her belief that the kindle ranks in the top ten of inventions, she still loves cuddling up with a paperback. She writes what she loves to read about: stories with heart, humour and heat.
