Claire Ross has never been good enough. Not for the girls in the elite group of dancers in her class and certainly not for the approval of her ballet teacher, Mr. Robins. She definitely doesn’t like what she sees in the mirror. Simply put, she doesn’t love herself, so how could she possibly love someone else?
After twelve years of friendship, Sebastian Reyes’ adoring gaze holds more. They soon find themselves unable to control their feelings for one another.
When tragedy strikes, Claire finds herself in a very unlikely and unfavorable position. Regardless of the weight of the emotion, she must make difficult decisions that impact the rest of her life.
Will Claire see that her true love has been right in front of her? Happily ever after isn’t just for fairy tales. To get hers, all she has to do is trust, open her heart and fall.

5 “I.Love.Sebastian.Reyes” stars!!
Where do I start?!? How about with this is one of my favorite stories of 2016, so far! This author has come such a long way in the years that I have been reading her books. Heartfall is beautifully written, with so many heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. It’s been a while since I’ve had tears falling from my eyes over a character, but J.B. McGee did it!! Claire and Sebastian are beautiful!! And I mean beautiful inside and out…both of them. Their love is pure, innocent, beautiful (yes, I said beautiful again!), but tragic.
“I’ll forever love The Violet Hour and The Civil Wars. And maybe one day, I’ll love me.”
Just when you think Claire, the rejected ballerina, is getting her life together and feeling confident, the tragedy happens. I wanted to scream no. I knew something had to happen but why that?!? And why then?!? It was at this point that I had so many questions and felt like there were so many missing pieces. But I was told to keep on reading, and I did. And it did all fall right into place, like I was hoping it would.
Just breathe. Just dance. Just don’t fall. Most of all, though, just dance, Claire.”
The story is told in two different parts. In the second half (which is Claire a little older) we are introduced to Liam. I was on the fence about Liam. Liam has that bad boy persona going, and I love bad boys, but it still took me a while to totally get Liam.
“There’s no other Grace.”
So, we have Liam, Sebastian, and Claire. Plus many others who make them who they are. But, this review can’t even do the main three justice. You just have to READ THE STORY!! I promise it is fabulous! It could have easily been a one sitter for me. I haven’t been reading as much as I would like, due to kids and work, but Heartfall MADE me take that time to read again. I was even reading while cooking 😉
If you haven’t figured it out already, this story is Book Bitch approved and you need to bump it up to top of your list!
