The New York Times best-selling 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.

I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I love all the books in this series and I was really looking forward to this book. I don't know if this book fell a little short for me because I had a hard time with the narrator or that I felt the story had no momentum but I was left wanting and had to push myself through this book which is weird as I've listened to the others in this series multiple times because I loved them so much.
I will still continue to get books by this author as I think this book was an anomaly for me and I love the authors work, just not sure I will get this narrator again as she didn't work well for me. I loved the narrator on the other 3 books, I felt they were excellent picks and I enjoyed the change in narrator. I thought it gave each person's story their own voice.
The narrator is HORRIBLE! I had an extremely difficult time getting through it. She is reading what is suppose to be a hot, sexy story like you would a nursery rhyme to children. The inflection is all wrong, the pace is painfully slow and the Scottish accent is weak. Big fail on the publisher's part on casting the narrator, especially considering how fantastic the other three books were preformed.
The story is a bit predictable but still with some hot scenes. But I didn't just fall in love with the characters in this one the way I did with the previous three books. I found Marco's sudden reappearance and devotion to waiver on the "seriously?" side while Hannah's naivety could be slightly obnoxious. But there are a couple twists that kept me going. Overall, not nearly as good as her other three but because they were so hard to put down I did want to finish this one.
I am a full time student. I love to read but have no time to read for fun; audible is the perfect solution to that.
I had to listen to this at 1.5x speed and the narration still felt slow.
Not impressed by the story; I guessed her "secret" pretty quickly and the story ended very abruptly.
My least favourite of the series
Im sorry, but the narration was terrible. I found it to be very distracting from the story line.
Her accent and the way she spoke.
I enjoyed the first 3 novels.
All business but contemporary fun!
She whispered the whole book out. It was unfortunate because it ruined most fun parts. Maybe the author decided to pick this narrator to offset the more intense sex scenes in the book compared to the prior ones, but I disagree with the approach.
My biggest issue with this book is that I don't believe that the couple could forgive what they did to each other in real life. Over-dramatized breakup has its consequences and if I wanted to related to Hanna, the easy forgiveness she gives Marco spoils it for me.
Samantha is a great writer, I hope she keeps up the quality of her prior work (please!). Don't rush it!
No, terrible narration and story very predictable and boring.
No, but I recommend the other Dublin St. books.
It was difficult to tell which character was speaking.
Return the book.
Do not use Chloe Lynn to narrate -- basically, all her voices sound the same.
I love this series and the previous voice actors were exciting and entertaining and made me sit on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what was happening next. Although I did enjoy this story it was very slow and then combined with the narrators voice I found my mind wondering and myself getting very sleepy.
The narrator has a very pleasant sleepy voice and she spends the whole book assisting you to get a really good nights sleep. Even the hot steamy parts are read in a sleepy relaxing voice and I can't tell the difference between which characters are speaking because they all sound the same. She will every now and then attempt a not so authentic Scottish accent but it is not consistent.
The previous audible books were awesome but fans of this series should probably read the text version of this story and skip the audible unless you go into it with no expectations of fantastic voice acting.
The real story line. Life is hard, and this is a love story that works through the hard stuff. I really loved seeing Hannah as a grown up.
Finding out Hannah's secret. I did not see that one coming like I did Marco's. I think that I actually gasped.
I never cried but I did laugh out loud a couple of times and there were definitely some surprised gasps.
Samantha Young is a great storyteller. I have absolutely loved this group of books and hope there are a couple more to come.
Married, not quite 40 mom from the mid-west. I sit behind a computer all day translating large amounts of data into business solutions.
Am I glad I downloaded Fall from India Place? YES! Samantha Young always delivers, but this book was a little disappointing. I am not sure if it is because so much was foreshadowed in prior books in this series or if it is the amount of time spent catching readers up on main characters from prior books - but in the end it just was lacking for original story line.
This story envokes emotions - whether I was crying or laughing, I felt the whole book. The main character has changed since we first met her during this series. She used to go after what she wanted and wasn't afraid. Now, after the pain and hurt and obstacles life has thrown at her, all she knows how to be is cautious and fears being hurt again.
I liked that the life lesson Hannah has to learn in this story is one that we all need to be reminded of on a daily basis - life is short, don't take it for granted.
I loved any scene with Jarrod in it - Hannah's passion for her students really made me connect to her. I loved the night Marco finally decided he couldn't just be friends with Hannah anymore and told her to wrap her legs around him and carried her to bed - the sex scenes were yummy. And I loved when he showed up when Hannah most needed it, even after she pushed him away, wrapping his hand around hers.
I couldn't stop listening. I started it on a Saturday and spent almost my entire Sunday finishing it. I wanted to know what happened next, I was sucked in!
This story was written a bit differently than the other in the ODS series, but I really appreciate the flow and tone of this one.
Chloe Lynn does a great Scottish accent, but she couldn't do the male voices as well as some other female narrators.
