Publisher's Summary

Dallas

He was the beginning of my heart...and the end of it.

I was only 15 years old when he claimed it and 20 when he took it with him.

They say what is meant to be will find a way. But when you have changed to the point of no return, how can anything ever be the same?

Seven years later, Dean Martin waltzed back into my life in hopes of resuming what I had fought so hard to forget, but he was in for a wake-up call.

I was no longer the naïve woman he had left...and I was no longer his.

I met the love of my life and my soul mate when I was 15. I knew that; he knew that. He wanted that girl back. I wanted to forget she ever existed.

Dean

What I thought was my predestined path was very much an illusion. Living seven years with regret, I realized too late that I was broken, and that I only had myself to blame.

I thought love could wait...but it didn't.

We'd had it all those years ago, and then I foolishly left it behind.

She was all that mattered. She was all there ever was.

There was no life without Dallas, no reason...except her.

No matter how hard she tried to convince me, I knew I had to once again make her mine, to make her remember...the fall.

Mature audiences only. Explicit sex and language.

The greatest fall

Honestly, I'm super picky with audible books. Even more so when I've read the book myself. When you read you formulate your own voices and mannerisms, right? Well I do and I have to say this was one of the best voices in audible that I've heard. She spoke clearly and smoothly! Kudos to the Author for picking the perfect fit.

Now for the story line, I don't want to spoil it, but it is beautiful. Kate Stewarts words are so beautiful and the story lines are always so captivating and The Fall is no different! Dallas and Dean have such a unique, heartbreakingly beautiful story and you truly feel the ups and downs with the descriptions and emotional draw. I loved it. Simple as that, I loved it!

I have Fallen for Kate Stewart !!

I recently discovered Kate Stewart literally 2 weeks ago and I’ve already read through 3 books . The narrator really bring this story to life though I do wish a that all the men parts were read by men like in the Ravenhood series but not a big issue. Tracy Marks did a fabulous job narrating The Fall and Kate Stewart did a fabulous job on a story that we all can relate to in some ways !

All the stars !

Kate Stewart does it again!!! Amazing story; real love you can feel as you read and/or listen. I was lost in all of it. So much love, loss of time, stubbornness, and slow forgiveness. Loved the narrator, great voices - good at Spanish. Loved the happy ending! Oh the book made me cry- hard to do but this is her 2nd book that’s gotten tears outta me!! Bravo

One you don’t want to miss!

I love and hate this book! I guess I mostly love it, though, because I finished it in one sitting and, I’ve already downloaded the next in the series. I love ALL of the characters, the story and MOST of the twists and turns. Without giving spoilers, all I can really say is I HATED one of the twists. It’s an excellent story, though. I was elated and devastated right along with the characters which, IMO, is a sign of great storytelling and a well written story. As always, Tracy Marks narration is fantabulous. This is a definite DO NOT MISS!

It was okay! Heroine botherd me a bit...

Any additional comments?

I get when the guy you're interested in sleeps around a lot it could be hard to trust. But he has never given her a reason not to trust her while they were dating. I think she brought it up about 20 times through out the entire book. It was bothersome.

still one of my favorites❤❤❤

I have listened to this book several times in the last few years. it has remained one of my favorites and each time, I listen with few breaks! I LOVE everything about this story and Tracy Marks is my favotite narrator so that probably adds something to the book for me! I keep hoping that the Heart will come out on Audio but I may not get to read it until I retire! 😟

Started well, but teetered away

Allas and Dean, who sparked a teenage romance, which due to complications meant a separation of years before they found each other again and the spark rekindled. The idea isn’t a new one, people finding each other again, but the book just seemed to drag on for me. I kind of liked them at the beginning, but by the end of the book I was throughly bored of them and wanted it to be the end. I’d lost the passion for them both, so that they just became irritating! Dallas’s constant reference to her vagina was also a little bit crass, losing some of the sensuality of the book for me. I won’t be reading the next in series. This book is about a couple, d
