I already said this, but this book has got to be the most difficult one to read out of Tillie Cole’s books, and I’ve read all of her currently published ones. Sweet Fall was a hard read, but I just couldn’t stop reading it. Well, actually, there were times when I just wanted to stop, especially those scenes where the heroine was battling with that inner voice that haunted her. I didn’t stop because I knew stopping would mean I would miss the best part of the book, which is every single part.
I don’t know that I could have loved Lexi Hart is she was written by another author. Tillie Cole did an amazing job in writing a character who battled a disorder that a lot of afflicted people find hard to fight. I honestly don’t understand how someone could have that disorder, but that does not mean I don’t empathize with people who do. Reading about Lexi Hart made me thankful that I am me, and I didn’t have the same demons that she had. She was the best thing about this book. The hero was great too, but come on, if you have a heroine like Lexi Hart, it’s kind of difficult for any other character to top that.
In Tillie Cole’s opening message, she mentioned something personal that was related to the disorder that Lexi Hart had, and I know how difficult this must have been for her to write, with the book being so close to home, and I commend her for doing a wonderful job with the whole book. I am sad because I’ve seen some bad reviews about the book, and while I respect other people’s opinions, I just couldn’t understand how anybody could NOT like Sweet Fall. Anyway, this book deserves every bit of the five red hearts that I am giving it. I would recommend it without a doubt, except that I would probably want to tell people that this is way darker than Sweet Home and Sweet Rome, and it needs a strong person to appreciate it.
