Overview

The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street, Down London Road, and Before Jamaica Lane returns with a story about letting go of the past and learning to trust in the future....

When Hannah Nichols last saw Marco D’Alessandro five long years ago, he broke her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy Hannah ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. After one intense night of giving in to temptation, Marco took off, leaving Scotland and Hannah behind. Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hannah has never truly moved on.

Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life—something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight.  Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together....

But just when Marco thinks they’re committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him—a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again....

    Ok

    Ok read but not as good as the other books in the series. The first third is filled with a lot of information about where the other characters are in their lifes. Too much info, boring, and distracting. Once Marco comes into the picture, things get better and the story really gets exciting.... until Hannah starts with her fears and paranoias and becomes this annoying character. Pity because Marco is a great hero and I would have loved Hannah's character to be consistently strong and more relatable.

    I was so looking forward to another book in this series but this was missing something. Too much information about minor characters/plots. Normally I love to get a follow up of the other couples but this time too much. Yes, they had kids but I really did not need to know all their details. It was suppose to be Hannah and Marco's story. What she went through was terrible and was not given the proper treatment. Once Marco entered the story, it got better. He was great but Hannah, who I loved in the earlier books, was not so lovable this time. I am looking forward to Cole in the next story and I will always read a Samantha Young book. Read her On Dublin Street series and Into the Deep.

    I Also Recommend:

    Hanna Nichols¿Braden and Ellie¿s little sister¿is all grown up,

    Hanna Nichols—Braden and Ellie’s little sister—is all grown up, teaching high school English by day and an adult literacy course at the local community center by night. Seemingly content with her life as it is, Hanna tells herself she’s happy. Until one day while sorting through boxes at her parents’ house, she stumbles upon her old diaries and a photograph from her later teen years—a selfie she’d taken with her friend, Marco D’Alessandro—and wonders, not for the first time, where that younger, cockier, romantic version of herself had gone. Five long years ago, Marco had broken her heart. The bad boy with a hidden sweet side was the only guy she’s ever loved—and the only man she’s ever been with. And after years of friendship and one intense, passion filled night of giving in to temptation, he took off, leaving Scotland and her behind.

    Shattered by the consequences of their night together, Hanna has never truly moved on. Feeling lost for a long time after Marco left, it had taken her a while to find her strength and independence again. It had meant hardening her heart and allowing only the people she trusted implicitly to touch it. So when she runs into Marco, the guy she had pined over for so long, only to discover that he’s been back in Scotland for four years and has made no attempt to contact her, the pain she had shoved deep down inside her all those years ago comes back with a vengeance.

    Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco’s life—something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, needing a chance to explain the past and apologize for it, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Though there’s a part of Hanna that’s desperate to give in, like she would have done when she was younger, eager for his respect and affection, but she isn’t that girl anymore. He’d seen to that. And Hanna isn’t interested in hearing Marco’s apology.

    Trying to make up for his mistakes and determined to make her give him a second chance, Marco pulls out all the stops, actively pursuing Hanna, reminding her of all the reasons they’re meant to be together.

    But just as she begins to open herself up to the possibility of a future together, Hanna makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she’s been hiding from him—a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again....

    To say I was surprised by how much I cried while reading this story is an understatement. Those who know me, know how stoic and pragmatic I am—crying isn’t something I do. So, any book that can elicit that kind of emotional reaction from me deserves five stars. I felt conflicted by and sympathized with both protagonists, who failing to effectively communicate with each other had both made mistakes resulting in indelible consequences. Hanna’s pain was raw and palpable, and while I didn’t necessarily agree with her fears, or her anger towards Marco, I certainly understood it. But I also admired Marco’s tenacity, his refusal to give up and walk away from Hanna a second time. A fantastic, tragic and deeply emotional read, Fall from India Place is a slow-building second chance love story about overcoming past mistakes and learning to move forward. My only complaint is that I wished the Epilogue had been longer, delving a little deeper into Hanna and Marco’s well-deserved HEA.

    I avoided this book for months after it was released because of the negative reviews. I shouldn't have. I enjoyed it. I didn't mind the recap of past characters since I hadn't read the first books in a while.

    There's no denying I'm a fan of Samantha Young's books. I hate that it took me this long to discover my love for her, but better late than never right? You can't read new adult without being aware of On Dublin Street and the subsequent books, so it's not that I didn't realize her books were out there. If I'm honest, I think I was afraid they wouldn't live up to the hype. I couldn't have been more wrong. 

    Fall From India Place isn't my favorite book in the series, but it was still a fantastic read. I had been interested in learning more about Hannah for awhile, especially when it came to her past with Marco, so I couldn't wait to get started on this one. While I can't say it fell short, I just didn't connect with Hannah like I did with some of the earlier ladies in the book. Her attitude was a little off-putting at times, honestly. It's not that I don't understand how hurt she was and where she was coming from, but Marco's feelings were so obvious, it just about broke my heart to watch her push him away. 

    I knew Hannah and Marco had history, but I didn't have any idea the extent of that history until this book. I was taken by surprise by the depth of their past. Going into this book, I assumed what they had was more of a friendship with a bit of a crush, but the truth is, it was a lot more than that. In addition to the present-day scenes with Hannah and Marco, we get several emotional backstory pieces as well. So many feels. This is probably the most emotional of the books in the series, in my opinion. 

    I really did enjoy this book, even if it wasn't my favorite in the series. I listened to the majority of it in audiobook format, but hit a point where I couldn't wait until I would be able to finish it on audiobook, so I purchased the Kindle version. They were both good, but I think I enjoyed the audiobook more. I loved the narrator who voiced this one. She sounded as I imagined Hannah would. Her performance of the other characters was great, too. She definitely brought added emotion to the story.

    3.75 stars: FALL FROM INDIA PLACE is the fourth full-length inst

    3.75 stars: FALL FROM INDIA PLACE is the fourth full-length instalment in Samantha Young’s contemporary, adult, erotic On Dublin Street romance series focusing on a group of family and friends in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is American born Marco D’Alessandro and Hannah Nichols story-  a second chance at love and a happily ever after.
    When fourteen year old Hannah fell in love with Marco D’Alessandro she had no idea how far she would fall.  At seventeen, Hannah professed her love to the only boy who would ever hold her heart but following their first sexual encounter, Marco pulled away and disappeared from Hannah’s life. Fast forward five years and an accidental meeting between Hannah and Marco would set off a storm of emotions and painful memories that Hannah had kept buried in the past. Betrayal, heartbreak, secrets and lost love would send Hannah spiraling out of control as Marco tries to prove that he is worthy of her love-once again.
    The relationship between Hannah and Marco is destructive, gut wrenching and difficult. Marco knows that he made a mistake five years earlier but Hannah is not willing to accept anything beyond the moment and Hannah is not an easy character to love. This is a woman who will not forgive; will not forget; and refuses to acknowledge that both she and Marco suffered from the mistakes of the past and in this I had a difficult time accepting Hannah’s immature reaction and emotional tirades as though her feelings where the only ones that mattered. Five years had passed and life did a number on both Hannah and Marco but forgiveness was difficult for a woman who still loved the man that destroyed her heart and her soul. Hannah is not the only person suffering with pain and regret but she believes she is the only one that matters.
    Samantha Young pulls the reader into a story where a moment in time has destroyed two people; where a painful secret would set the tone for one woman’s outlook on life; and where one man must make amends for something more than he could possibly know. 
    FALL FROM INDIA PLACE reunites all of the previous storyline characters and advances the series several months to a few years. There is humor, heartbreak, drama and passion for a couple that have lost and found one another against remarkable odds. Told from Hannah’s first person POV a good portion of the storyline is flashback and memories of what happened after Marco and Hannah’s one night together-the destructive nature of falling in love and letting go; the dissolution of the unknown; and the ability of the heart and the mind to move forward following the staggering realization that you are not alone.

    4.5  The On Dublin Street Series by Samantha Young is another on

    4.5 
    The On Dublin Street Series by Samantha Young is another one of those series that I just adore.  It all began with Joss and Braden in On Dublin Street, who will always be one of my favorite.  In Fall From India Place, Braden's little sister Hannah is all grown up and the boy she had a crush on as a teen, Marco D'Alessandro, the boy who broke her heart, is back in the picture five years after the horrific event that almost crushed her. She didn't expect to see him, and she doesn't know if she can ever trust him again, much less tell him the whole ugly truth about what happened after he left.  Marco is determined.  He let her go 5 years ago, his best friend, the girl he loved, because he thought he wasn't good enough.  Now, he is determined to have her back and is willing to do whatever it takes to get her.  Marco also has a secret he has been keeping from Hannah though, a secret that coupled with her own hidden grief could destroy any hope they have of making it work.  




    I really loved Hannah's character in this book.  She was so funny.  I did think she protested a little too much, but she did the right thing when it counted.  Her personality is such that you couldn't help but like her.  Marco is definitely a hottie.  He messed up badly, but he works hard to redeem himself.  The chemistry is hot, as is the sex, something Samantha Young always delivers.  One of the things I loved best about the novel was the way Samantha Young brought all the characters from the previous books together.  Not only did she bring them together, she provided an excellent explanation of who they were through Hannah's voice, and for fans of the series, well......it felt like being part of a family reunion with the On Dublin Street crowd...and the crowd has definitely gotten bigger.  I love the fact that although their individual novels were over, their lives go on, and as a reader, you get to see that and be a part of it.  Cole, Jo's brother played a bigger role in this book and I enjoyed getting to know him.  I can't wait to read his story.  




    Romance, hot sexy Alpha male, fun and sarcastic heroine, and a great story to boot.  What more could you ask for.  Fall From India Place is a fantastic book that fans of the series will devour, and if you haven't started the series, you really should.  It is wonderful.

    I have read all of Samantha Young's books and have really enjoyed them. I love hearing more about past characters. I hope the series continues. It definitely helps to have read her previous books in this series to better understand the connection among all the characters.
