words of this author engulf you, a poignant story that cut me to the core, sit back, grab some tissues and let this author carry you on this beautiful gut wrenching story Going into this I didn t know what to expect, but only a few chapters in I could feel anticipation racing through my blood stream, there was just something niggling at me in the background, something that would give me a massive jolt, I knew something profound was going to come at me because I could feel the build up It was like building up a puzzle from scratch, piece by piece, chapter by chapter as we piece these characters stories that were somehow interwoven together This was no easy feat writing up a spoiler free review Or even writing up a review for this one for that matter, over half the book I didn t know where the author was leading me, though I did have an inkling what this was about and could say it was similar to a popular old movie which I can not name because you ll know the plot then soooooo my lips are sealed We re all kind of left in the dark trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, trying to work out where they all fitted, not really knowing what was happening or how it was all going to end and it s not until you near the end that it all becomes clear And it was at that point that I realised nothing could prepare me for this bookIn life I m not a crier, but this book right here had tears pouring down my face.An emotional journey of momentsA celebration of sunny days This was so beautifully written, I even forgive this author for making me cry flag 78 likesLike see review

tears, we declare this to be one of our favourite reads this year This is one of those books we feel the need to grab every fellow reader who appreciates an extraordinarily well written and heartfelt story, one that relies on raw human emotion rather than unnecessary drama or theatrics and yell, read this book The feelings you ll experience from this story will leave you breathless, cherishing every moment, and remembering Alix, Dylan and Smith s story as though you lived it We all need a little hope And some people need the reminder that there will be sunny days, especially me The synopsis tells us if you think this book is about cheating, you couldn t be wrong and that is so true This is a not an angsty drama filled triangle romance, what this is, is a powerful, poignant, heartfelt and deeply moving love story We re asked if you can love two men at the same time, after reading When Ashes Fall, we absolutely believe you can, and Marni Mann will show you why We also stress there is no cheating in this book So please, open your hearts, set aside any reservations and let Alix, Dylan, and Smith share their story We promise you an unforgettable reading experience I always heard music Beats, lyrics I only had to listen to a song before it started playing in my head One day the music stopped There is something almost spiritual about this story, a story about the empowerment of love, its strength, its resilience, and its pain, and didn t Marni Mann just give her whole heart to these characters Her convincing, sincere and heart rending story showcased her incredible writing talent, in a story that affected us deeply one that will forever live within us I was in complete darkness That was where I belonged And that was where I stayed First responder Alix Rayne has lost her heart to two men Two very different men whom we both loved equally Dylan Cole, swept Alix off her feet and loved her with every fibre of his being Smith Reid, the sweet and sensitive a balm for Alix when she needed his comfort Smith was the patient to Dylan s pushy, the calm to Dylan s storm Each man had the most beautiful qualities, and each was perfect for the sweet and vulnerable Alix in their own way As was her best friend Rose This is a lady every girl needs as a friend Honest, caring, firm and non judgmental Rose was integral to the story.The story is set in Boston which acts almost as a secondary character, providing an atmospheric backdrop to When Ashes Fall It s told in 3 pov s, with precision past present switches, so we experience each relationship firsthand We feel the happiness, the joy, the pain, the sadness, and the hope from each character, and let us tell you, no feelings are spared as the story reaches it s heartbreaking yet poignantly beautiful crescendo overpowering us with profound emotion Alix s pain radiated from the pages, her emotions laid raw and bare for us to feel, and feel them we did No, I don t want to run.unless it s toward you, and then my answer is yes We don t want to say any about this story Marni Mann has been careful with the synopsis so as not to give anything away, and we truly believe the feelings you ll experience are infinitely intensified by allowing the author and her characters to lead you through.Needless to say, we were swept up in When Ashes Fall from the very first page, reading it in one sitting, unable to move until we reached the end And then, through tears, we wanted to go back and start again and relive every moment, to once again be consumed by this author s stirring story There were so many questions I wanted to ask, starting with her pain, where it had come from, what it was As battered and bruised as our hearts were, they were also completely fulfilled and well, happy and thankful We learnt that life is full of moments Some pass without notice, others with monumental impact and this story is about embracing every one of those moments no matter how beautiful or painful they are This was another moment Every once and while we come across that rare book The one that reminds us of why we have the overpowering ache to read and feel When Ashes Fall is one of those books Read it, live it, treasure it.Available to purchase below US UKCome visit and follow us at TotallyBookedBlog TBB on Facebook TBB on Instagram TBB on Twitter TBB on Pinterest flag 55 likesLike see review View

because there s this whole second best theme around them, which I loathe even , because who wants to be second best And boy is this book the ultimate second best story I m not even going to go there today I will say that I went in blind but had I known what this was about I would ve skipped it The blurb and the way it s written could be a little misleading and could definitely trigger some, or just infuriate some like it did to me A big issue I had was that it was so predictable to me at least I knew from the first chapter what exactly was happening in the story regardless of that second POV view spoiler I knew Dylan was dead, it s so obvious hide spoiler I knew what was up with the heroine and that some things were simply not real And the problem for me is that when I immediately get the plot twist, I m desperate to find out when it will finally be revealed and this one just drags and drags until almost the end which was frustrating to say the least I hate when there s obvious foreshadowing, the characters speak in code and people just don t talk and then unravel Just hate it I m not even sure why the book is divided in 2 parts because there was zero difference between one and the other I didn t like Alix one bit, she was just bland yet these men were instantly falling at her feet for no real reason and I just couldn t connect with her This book at parts is one huge inner monologue and does a lot of telling instead of showing which drives me nuts Alix was just so meh, yeah I felt bad for her but I just couldn t identify one bit Not to mention her ass needed therapy and she was nowhere near ready to move on Like nowhere Another issue I had, and this one straight pissed me was view spoiler how Dylan died hide spoiler I m sorry but you shouldn t use national tragedies as plot devices for shock value Inserting fictional characters into current events drives me nuts And as someone that went to school in Boston and loves the city I was so pissed It reminded me of that movie Remember Me, the one with Robert Pattinson, if you ve watched it, that plot twist at the end was awful, it s the thing that critics hated the most and with reason It also does very little to explain the heroine s reaction to certain things, it weakens the plot greatly view spoiler I actually thought he died on a plane crash on the way to Maine while there was bad weather and that somehow she had survived It would ve been perfect to explain why she didn t want to go back there and her aversion to storms and thunder But using the marathon bombing to me was a big no no hide spoiler Also, why is every man in this book obsessed with Lake Tahoe So random Anyway, I considered giving this one 2 stars but upped it to 3 because the writing is not bad and the audiobook narration by Ava Erickson, Teddy Hamilton who I love and Aiden Snow are super good I totally get why so many people loved it, but this one was just not for me flag 34 likesLike see review

But the need was there GO INTO THIS BOOK AS BLIND AS POSSIBLE This was my first book by Marni Mann and it won t be my last This was a story written very differently than anything I would have probably read had I known what it was about, so the way she told this story did everything it should have done to keep me turning the pages and devouring the book in wonder I m not kidding SO good So interesting So different I really liked how she told this one I love when an author s voice or style takes me on a journey, and the discovery is equal parts exploring and confusion Because I was thoroughly confused throughout most of it and I loved that she strung me along HAHA The amount of purposeful comments and quotes in this book was astounding Even the behind the scenes actions added meaning It made it emotional for me than I could have imagined Great word building and usage, I can easily say that I look back on Mann s posts on Facebook now with a better understanding and knowing what I do now, it makes me smile with a tear The teaser below could start the waterworks again meaningful I didn t highlight as much as I usually do and would you believe my notes on the book are scarce Every time I highlight, I make a note so I can include it in my review because it affected me somehow I was just so entranced I didn t want to stop reading and yes wide eyes were present I just breezed through it, absorbing her storyNFESSION I guessed the twist of the situation at 14%, but getting through the book to see how it all worked out and to see if I was actually correct in my assumption was 95% of the fun So, potentially knowing what was going on didn t ruin the journey for me, but in all actuality, it made me keep reading to find out if I was right I held my breath so much I read until my eyes couldn t stay open I needed to find out.Dylan was enticing and strength personified He had an edge to him that was smooth and he oozed confidence Smith was intoxicating and sweet With a genuine smile, he was an approachable man with a sexiness that invited you in and held you close Two different men, one heart that was broken, and a mind that was torn.To be fair, I felt like I was reading a story within a story and that was awesome Mann s word play is excellent Distinctly separate men, wholly separate voices, and completely different outcome than I imagined I cried from 85% on in this book Not because of what happened, but because of WHO happened and, you guys.just YES I completely loved this one and seriously cannot recommend it enough I really really liked this book Maybe, one day, I would love the rain, but I was still learning how to handle the storm BEE AA LINK HERE FOR YOUR CHANCE TO WIN AN ECOPY flag 29 likesLike see review View all 6 comments Jan

blink of an eye She is caught between the love of two men and the I read, the unsure I was as to whether she would have the ability to let either of them go Silence was like moisture it created an

It s not like I don t know what to say, it s just, not enough I was completely and utterly captivated with this story and these characters My gosh these characters, they were everything and Alix, Dylan and Smith took hold of my heart and didn t let go Beautiful, breathtaking, heartbreaking and hopeful are just a few words to describe When Ashes Fall.I m warning you right now, I know for a fact my review will not do this book justice And honestly, what I m basically going to do is just pour my heart out Just let all my feelings runneth over Show you a fragment of a glimpse inside my heart.I m prone to generally gravitate towards the Heroes in books Why I don t know, it s just the way it is But once in awhile, there are those raw times in which the heroine takes center stage And in this case, Alix was a force Don t get me wrong, Dylan and Smith had their moments, but Alix, since the very beginning was IT, she IS all the moments.There aren t enough words to tell you how much Alix means to me I d have to rip out my heart so you can examine how deep my love for her is I felt this connection to her since the very beginning I don t know how to explain it, it s just this overwhelming sensation that s taken over all my senses Even after days of finishing this book Alix is still on my mind Questions swarming inside my head How is she feeling Is she okay How many slices of chocolate cake has she had But the question that s constantly in a loop, is she happy And gosh, I hope she is.Dylan and Smith, boy these two couldn t be different And that s why I love them so much Dylan, oh my, I loved how in control he was, the power that radiated off of him But by far his best quality is the way he loves Alix He loves her to the very deepest parts of his soul, and it s such a beautiful love And Smith, well, he s gentle and warm and kind and just brings the light I fell, and fell hard for two extraordinary men And yes it s true, you can love two men at the same time When Ashes Fall will leave you in a state of wonderment You won t know what to do with yourself once you finish reading This book and these characters will stay with you days after you finish reading One

just came flooding back tenfold I have been a huge fan of Marni Mann from or less the beginning of her career when I stumbled across her book on , and I haven t looked back since Having read every book she has published I have to say that this is my new favourite book of hers, the raw, intense emotions and honesty that she has conveyed through her words will tug at every heartstring, will bring lumps to your throat and cause plentiful tears But, despite the emotional wringer that this book puts you through, you cannot help but be affected, impacted and emotionally stirred by the profound story that this author delivers You can tell that this book was written from the heart, you feel and experience EVERYTHING Love is such a powerful emotion, one that you are lucky to experience once in a lifetime, some maybe twice, none are ever the same, but each leaves their mark This is not a cheating book, far from it, but read this as the author intended, blind Let her take you on this ride, it is one that you will never, ever forget You re asking to see my storm We all want sunny days, the days where the sun on your face warms your soul and your heart, however, there are always storms too, and it is on those days that you keep your nearest and dearest with you Life is full of moments, to learn by, to cherish, to love, they may be insignificant, they may be monumental, but they make up your map, your map is your own, and you never know when life is going to make you change direction This is all about those directions, those left, and rights, some you anticipate and others you don t, but they are there for a reason It is how you cope and deal with them that determines your end destination No, I don t want to run Unless it s towards you, and then my answer is yes Marni Mann delivers an extremely poignant, heartfelt, heart destroying, heart warming, raw, honest, extremely moving love story that will have you captivated from start to finish The story grabs you from the very beginning and doesn t let you go even after the very last words This is a book that I will be thinking about for a very long time and one that I will definitely be re reading This is one of those stories that makes you think long and hard, both at what you have just read and about the characters The journey that Alix, Dylan, and Smith embark on will have your heart in your mouth one minute, your heart fit to burst the next, tears aplenty and the cheesiest grins This was a rollercoaster, and as your brain frantically tries to read between the lines, you can only sit back and admire how well the author has layered this story This book was like an onion, every chapter was a layer and as each layer was devoured the possibilities got smaller and smaller The author delivers the crux of this story with brutal honesty, and I dare anyone not to bawl their eyes out Intense, yet beautiful for its innocence, no unnecessary drama, no angst for angst sake, just one incredibly unforgettable story Alix and I weren t perfect We had cracks And, as the months passed, I learned some deepened while others got filled in I also learned that wasn t the last night I d sleep alone Every character had their purpose, nothing superfluous, nothing artificial Every character well defined and the character connection was on point You will take these characters into your heart and soul as love takes centre stage Alix is cut open for the world to see and her love, emotions, and pain were agonizingly honest It is this honesty that embraces Alix into your heart and soul as she undertakes the hardest journey of her life We all need a best friend like Rose, Rose was Alix s rock, she centered Alix, was her confidante and always had her back She had been through the rough and the smooth, and she always had Alix s best interests at heart Both the men in this book were extremely lovable, total opposites and yet congruous in their love for Alix I will reiterate that there is NO cheating in this book, just two loves in one lifetime I cannot say any , I want to keep this review spoiler free, but all I will say is read this book You won t regret it, and you definitely won t forget it Marni Mann, take a bow I sincerely hope that this book gets the recognition it deserves You deserve it, these characters deserve it, and the blood, sweat, and tears you poured into it deserve it This will

with each man is unmistakable I must say she is one lucky lady to be the object of such intense devotion Marni Mann does a superb job conveying Alix s heart wrenching vulnerability as well as her strength The storyline is strong and moving, but there are a couple stylistic issues that prevented me from rating this book higher The chapters are very short and because the timeline and character perspectives bounce around continually, it sometimes creates a disjointed effect Then there is the fact that in virtually every scene Alix compares the physical and emotional differences between Dylan and Smith I understand the reasoning, but it seems like overkill I think it would have been effective to simply allow Smith and Dylan s actions and their affect on Alix to showcase the distinctions in their personalities instead of repeatedly spelling it out for the reader.All three narrators of the audiobook are very talented and turn in compelling performances However, in his portrayal of Dylan, Aiden Snow lays on a very thick Boston accent which, okay, he s from Boston but his lax pronunciation for example, chopping off the g in words that end in ing somethin , nothin , f ckin does not give the impression that he is a well educated, successful lawyer Know what I m sayin I checked, and that s not how the dialog is written in the book, so it s a character choice that just didn t work for me For that reason, I may have enjoyed reading the book than listening to it.This beautiful story wrung every ounce of emotion out of me It s definitely the strongest and most complex work by Marni

As we wipe away our tears, we declare this to be one of our favourite reads this year This is one of those books we feel the need to grab every fellow reader who appreciates an extraordinarily well written and heartfelt story, one that relies on raw human emotion rather than unnecessary drama or theatrics and yell, read this book The feelings you ll experience from this story will leave you breathless, cherishing every moment, and remembering Alix, Dylan and Smith s story as though you lived it We all need a little hope And some people need the reminder that there will be sunny days, especially me The synopsis tells us if you think this book is about cheating, you couldn t be wrong and that is so true This is a not an angsty drama filled triangle romance, what this is, is a powerful, poignant, heartfelt and deeply moving love story We re asked if you can love two men at the same time, after reading When Ashes Fall, we absolutely believe you can, and Marni Mann will show you why We also stress there is no cheating in this book So please, open your hearts, set aside any reservations and let Alix, Dylan, and Smith share their story We promise you an unforgettable reading experience I always heard music Beats, lyrics I only had to listen to a song before it started playing in my head One day the music stopped There is something almost spiritual about this story, a story about the empowerment of love, its strength, its resilience, and its pain, and didn t Marni Mann just give her whole heart to these characters Her convincing, sincere and heart rending story showcased her incredible writing talent, in a story that affected us deeply one that will forever live within us I was in complete darkness That was where I belonged And that was where I stayed First responder Alix Rayne has lost her heart to two men Two very different men whom we both loved equally Dylan Cole, swept Alix off her feet and loved her with every fibre of his being Smith Reid, the sweet and sensitive a balm for Alix when she needed his comfort Smith was the patient to Dylan s pushy, the calm to Dylan s storm Each man had the most beautiful qualities, and each was perfect for the sweet and vulnerable Alix in their own way As was her best friend Rose This is a lady every girl needs as a friend Honest, caring, firm and non judgmental Rose was integral to the story.The story is set in Boston which acts almost as a secondary character, providing an atmospheric backdrop to When Ashes Fall It s told in 3 pov s, with precision past present switches, so we experience each relationship firsthand We feel the happiness, the joy, the pain, the sadness, and the hope from each character, and let us tell you, no feelings are spared as the story reaches it s heartbreaking yet poignantly beautiful crescendo overpowering us with profound emotion Alix s pain radiated from the pages, her emotions laid raw and bare for us to feel, and feel them we did No, I don t want to run.unless it s toward you, and then my answer is yes We don t want to say any about this story Marni Mann has been careful with the synopsis so as not to give anything away, and we truly believe the feelings you ll experience are infinitely intensified by allowing the author and her characters to lead you through.Needless to say, we were swept up in When Ashes Fall from the very first page, reading it in one sitting, unable to move until we reached the end And then, through tears, we wanted to go back and start again and relive every moment, to once again be consumed by this author s stirring story There were so many questions I wanted to ask, starting with her pain, where it had come from, what it was As battered and bruised as our hearts were, they were also completely fulfilled and well, happy and thankful We learnt that life is full of moments Some pass without notice, others with monumental impact and this story is about embracing every one of those moments no matter how beautiful or painful they are This was another moment Every once and while we come across that rare book The one that reminds us of why we have the overpowering ache to read and feel When Ashes Fall is one of those books Read it, live it, treasure it.Available to purchase below US UKCome visit and follow us at TotallyBookedBlog TBB on Facebook TBB on Instagram TBB on Twitter TBB on Pinterest flag
