Review: Fall From India Place by Samantha Young

Add to Goodreads:
The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street and Down London Road 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 into 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….
At last we have Hannah & Marco's story.
If you are a fan of this series you will remember this cute, book loving teenage sister of Ellie & Braden and you may remember conversations she had about a boy she was crushing on from school.  Marco.
We now get the back story of what went on in high school with some flashbacks from Hannah's diaries.  One minute Marco was a part of her daily school life and then one night he gives in to the temptation of wanting to be with Hannah. He walks out the door and that is the last she sees of him. 
Four years later Marco is suddenly back in Hannah's life and this time he isn't fighting with his feelings for her. He is willing to do anything to make it up to her.  He wants to be with her but he is hiding a secret that he doesn't want to reveal until he knows that she truly wants to be with him. When she finds out what he has been hiding she is devastated.  She too has something she has been holding back from him and if they are to have any chance of a future together she will have to come clean.
This is a beautiful second chance love story and I inhaled every page of this book.
As a bonus, Castle Hill is in the back of this book so more Joss & Braden.  And the infamous Sunday family lunches feature several times and have now grown to include every couple we have met and their gorgeous children, some of which are born during this story. 
I give this 5 beautiful stars *****
