Synopsis: “The first time I returned to Lancaster was for my brother’s funeral.

The second time was for Myra.”

For twelve years, I lived alone in my cabin, building a life with my two bare hands. I was free from their rules, their policies, and their lies.

They are a cult.

My father is their leader.

To protect my brother’s widow, I’m making her my wife. It’s her only way out.

But drawn to the purity in her deep blue eyes and the innocence of her gentle voice, I wonder if I’m not the biggest monster of them all. I have to save her from them and myself. Because every second I spend with this timid woman, I fight the urge to claim her.

Own her.

Make her truly mine.

And I know it’s wrong.

I will break her fall—if I don’t break her first.

Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Break My Fall was definitely not what I expected. From the blurb I was expecting something grittier, more raw, and highly emotional. Not that this wasn’t an emotional read, it definitely had its moments of hitting you in the feels. But this book was a surprisingly sweet slow burn. Filled with more learning and growing while slowly falling than the sizzling heat I usually go for. This slow burn builds into a shocking twist that leaves you on edge for what’s to come and itching to get your hands on the next book. 

Ari’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Break My Fall had my attention at the blurb. It sold me as dark, thriller, and slightly taboo, but took me completely by surprise giving me a more emotional and intensely slow burn romance. Despite my slight disappointment at the change in tone, I loved the connection between Myra and Abraham. The character building by M. Mabie is stellar. She really takes her time showing the reader who these characters are and what they’re made of. Watching their bond develop and grow was like watching a flame flicker to life and it worked for the story. Being the first book in a trilogy I’m happy to know there will be more, especially after that ending, and I’m anxious to see where the story takes us. Three stars.

Excerpt:

A cloud of smoke followed the silver-haired woman out the door of the main building onto the covered porch outside, and she shot the butt of her cigarette into the dirt in front of the semi.

“Your mother’s been trying to reach you.”

My phone had died two days earlier, and I’d forgotten to bring a charger. Mom was the only person I still spoke with from Lancaster, but it was rare for her to call me, and I only reached out a few times a year.

“Say what she wanted?” I asked and slid my hands into worn leather gloves.

“Honey, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your brother passed away last night.”

Ted Grier hung back in the doorway, watching. Both of their faces wore sympathy.

“Pardon?”

“Your brother passed, Abe. You should call her back. Come on in and use the phone.”

I hadn’t spoken to my brother in years, but when I left home with no plans to return, I just assumed things would stay how I left them. They’d cling to their Bibles and bands and keep living in their own warped version of reality. They’d stay tucked under the strict thumb of the Legacies and God, or at least the way they interpreted him, and I’d live my life in the woods, free of their judgment and rules.

Alone and how I liked it.

They lived how they wanted, and I did the same.

I squinted in the mid-day sun, and the tension in my neck pinched even tighter.

“Jacob died?”

Ted limped to the stoop, tapped a Camel from his pack and lit it. “Son, you wanna come inside for a minute? Call your family?”

I did not. Calling them was the last thing I wanted.

It was almost noon, and I still had more than half day’s work to finish. The tobacco in the air was thick as I pulled it into my chest. “I’ll call when I get home.”

It was supposed to rain for the next four days in the hills, and there was work that needed to be done. Calling in the middle of the day wasn’t going to do anything but put me behind, and my brother would still be dead that evening.
