The Harder I Fall Review and Release Day Blitz

Becca Langer was not a normal girl, she didn't have normal girl problems. For most of her life, she’s had to take care of herself, her younger brother Chad, and her drunk mother. She’s lived under the shadow of what her father did when she was ten years old. Forever branded by his actions.
College was her escape, she could get away and finally live. Her dream was to make it in the New York Ballet Company one day. That for her meant a long road full of hard work and dedication. She didn't have time for distractions, and Levi Klein was definitely a distraction.
Will Levi be able to crack through her tough exterior and really see the wounded soul underneath? Becca needs to be loved, but the question is, will she let Levi love her?


About Jessica Gibson

Jessica Gibson is a recovering bookaholic, she's down from four books a week to a more reasonable one. It was that love of words and creativity that made her dream about writing her first book. That dream was hidden for years, always put on the back burner, filed away in the "someday" section, until her husband Matt gave her the kick in the pants she needed to actually get off her butt and write.

Jessica and Matt live in Southern California and have a serious addiction to reality tv shows like Pawn Stars and American Restoration. They have one son and hope to add to the family in the near future. Aside from writing, she runs an online event planning business called the Release Day Diva. In addition to novels, Jessica writes and maintains the blog Book on the Bright Side. Keep up with Jessica and her latest releases and events on her blog.

Life is a dance, with each step leading you in different directions. With one mistake you can fall, but  sometimes falling will lead you right where you need to be. For Becca, falling is what she needs.

Becca's life is anything but normal. Having parents who don't love her, a sister who was taken way to soon and a little brother who she's raised and a heart that's broken. Becca is leaving her toxic home and fleeing her small town, in turn to live her life and find out who she is.

In a new town and now a college student, having friends is something new to Becca, but getting close to anyone will be hard. Becca has secrets, something that has broken her a long time ago. Can she let those in and trust them with knowing the real her?

"Anyone would be lucky to know you. Your past wont define you if you don't let it."- Sadie

Dancing is her passion, her first love. Dancing has kept her sane, has saved her. She can let all the pain she's been living with out on that dance floor.

Levi will rock Becca's world, knock it off it's axis. He'll show her what it is to love, but it wont be easy. She'll fall, but can she let him catch her?

Nothing in life is ever easy, with her brother needing her, will she have to give up everything she's been working for or can she rely on others who's wanting to help?

"How can you love me when I'm so broken inside. My heart is shattered into so many pieces. I can't even begin to scrape them all together."- Becca

Can Levi help heal Becca's wounds, show her what love is? Will Becca be able to overcome the hurdles placed in her way. Who say's falling is easy?

"I'll always catch you, Becca."- Levi

The Harder I fall is such an amazing story of growing and healing yourself. Becca broke my heart many times, I wanted to hold her and tell her it would all be okay and to give in. This story really grabbed me and wouldn't let go until the very last word. Jessica Gibson wrote a book that is really a breath of fresh air. She didn't rely on sex scenes (Which isn't bad, I love a good sex scene) to make this book. She relied on the characters to tell this story with their words, and for that I love her. The characters are well written and they each will have you loving them in their own way. This story revolves around ballet and that is what pulled me to wanting to read this story. I'm a dancer, so it took me back to day's of dancing. This story is full of ups and downs, love and heart ache and of trust. I can't wait to see where she takes us with the other book(s) to come. I give this amazing read 5 stars!!!
