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 most 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.
Never Stop Falling is about a girl who lives in the moment, an ultimate risk taker. So, I asked Ashley Drew, author of Never Stop Falling what her top ten adventures (real or imaginary) would be.
1) Go skydiving—I’ve always wanted to take the plunge, and when I turned eighteen, I said I was going to do it. Well, here we are, several years later, and I still haven’t done it. I’m not so sure I have the guts to actually go through with it because I’m afraid of heights!
2) A cross-country road trip in an RV—People always talk about going on adventures abroad, but there are so many amazing places in the United States that I’ve always wanted to visit! I’d love to discover the beautiful formations of Antelope Canyon, hike through the trails of the Grand Canyon to Havasu Falls, and then sleep under a blanket of stars at Zion National Park. I dream about driving through the Catskill Mountains and renting a lake house with a porch that wraps around the front of it, where I can sit in an Adirondack chair, sip my glass of wine, and read a good book. The Pacific Northwest has so much to offer, from hikes through both Mount Rainer and Olympic National Parks to scenic drives along the Pacific Coast Highway.
3) Stay in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives—Crystal clear blue water, check! Nothing but the sounds of the rippling tide, check! And an uninterrupted book binge, check!
4) A trip to Rome, Pompeii, and the Tuscan countryside of Italy—This is actually one adventure I’m going on very soon!
5) Go scuba diving off the coast of Australia in the Great Barrier Reef—Other than my fear of open water and getting eaten by a great white shark, this sounds fantastic!
6) Eat bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmern—As long as it’s already dead, that is.
7) Go on a ghost hunt to one of America’s most haunted places—As long as I don’t bring any spirits home with me, I’m game!
8) Attend Mardi Gras—Because nothing says adventure better than a night of wild partying.
9) Hike to Half Dome at Yosemite National Park—I’m hoping to do this one this upcoming fall!
10) Visit all of the cities in my favorite books and find all of my book boyfriends—First, I’d fly to North Carolina and go boating on a lake full of swans with Noah Calhoun, and then hop on a horse and take a ride around the ranch with Luke Collins. Then, I’d make the ten-hour drive up to New York City, where Will Ryan and I would make sweet music together. Fast forward to the next day, and I’d be in Seattle, watching Kellan Kyle serenade the crowd with the rest of the D-Bags at Pete’s Bar. And in California, my favorite boys await me: I’ll fly first class with Miles Archer in San Francisco, have my pulse checked by Dr. Oliver Hart in Santa Barbara, read sweet poetry by Ben Kessler in Los Angeles, and go totally geek at the comic book store with Oliver Lore in San Diego. And of course, I’d end my trip in Santa Cruz with none other than my favorite book boyfriend, Nicholas Kelley. Hey, you said it could be imaginary!
Thank you, Ashley! I think I would like to try #3 and #7 for sure!!
