✯BLOG TOUR:✯ Never Stop Falling by Ashley Drew {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}

Never Stop Falling by Ashley Drew

Release Date: March 1st 2016 by Ashley Drew
Pages: 288
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

She didn't expect to fall for her best friend.

He was always waiting to catch her.

Corinne Bennett lives in the moment. Whether she's skydiving out of an airplane, or setting off on the road to anywhere, she's ready to dive into the next adventure. That is, if best friend and always-by-the-book Nicholas Kelley doesn't put his foot down on her wild stunts first.

When Corinne gives in to her growing feelings for Nicholas the summer before their freshman year of college, she takes the ultimate risk, making this one adventure he has longed to explore with her.

But the moment they take that irrevocable leap, a shocking revelation blindsides Corinne, exposing her vulnerabilities, baring her fears, and shattering her beliefs about love. With their future—and more importantly, their friendship—now clouded in doubt, she must decide if love is really worth the risk.

Because when it comes to love, you never stop falling.

The streets are lined with cars from end to end, and swarms of people crowd the sidewalks, hustling their way toward the beach for the big light show. Santa Cruz boasts the best Fourth of July fireworks up and down the California coast. A few hours ago, I couldn’t give two shits about seeing it. Now, I wouldn’t mind seeing some fireworks, just not the kind on everyone’s mind.

We finally manage to find an empty spot several blocks away in a secluded, residential neighborhood. Neither of us has spoken, unless you count, “Oh, oh, oh, I think that person might be leaving,” “Nah, it’s too small,” or “I think I see one over there.” How does one spark a conversation with their best friend of eighteen years, with whom they had a totally unexpected, hotter-than-hot make-out session with?

It could go two ways: the awkward ‘what does this mean for us, and where do we go from here?’ way or the ‘we’re just a couple of friends who acted in the heat of the moment, but it doesn’t mean anything so let’s act like it never happened’ way.

I’m ruling out the latter. It wasn’t just the heat of the moment; it didn’t not mean anything, and there’s no way we’ll be able to act like it never happened. And I don’t think either of us understands what this means for our friendship. At least I don’t, and I’m not sure if I’m ready to find out.

So what do you do if both options are ruled out?

Simple. You complicate the matter even further.

Nick unbuckles his seatbelt and turns to open the driver’s side door, but his hand barely touches the handle before I’m grabbing fistfuls of his shirt and yanking him into me in a wild haste. I crush my lips against his, as if our lives depend on it, and he doesn’t resist. When I trace my hands up his shoulders to the back of his neck, he responds with urgency, his tongue growing fervent against mine as he grips my waist and digs his fingers through the fabric of my top. I swiftly maneuver my body over the Jeep’s console and straddle his lap, our lips continuing their ravenous pursuit.

My breath hitches the second Nick’s hands find their way under my shirt, and as they crawl over my skin, I think I might pass out. I’m in a complete and utter daze, a high I don’t ever want to come down from. There isn’t anything that compares to the adrenaline coursing through my veins in this moment. Screw skydiving; that rush will eventually fizzle out when the free-fall ends.

But here, with Nick, I will never stop falling.


A San Francisco Bay Area native, Ashley Drew currently lives in Los Angeles. When she’s not going cross-eyed after writing for five hours straight, or burying her nose in a book, you’ll find her sprawled on her couch watching General Hospital, having alien conspiracy discussions with her husband over a bottle of bubbly, and dancing to Taylor Swift’s 1989 album with her daughter. 


Thanks for stopping by! :)
