New Adult Night Review: Deeper We Fall by Chelsea Camaron

Deeper We Fall by Chelsea Camaron
(Fall and Rise #1)

Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance

Two years after her best friend was involved in a
car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury,
Lottie Anders is ready to start her freshman year of college. Ready to move on. Ready to start forgetting the night that ripped her life apart.

Her plans come to a screeching halt when not one, but both brothers responsible for the accident end up back in her life again.

Zack is cruel, selfish and constantly rubbing what happened to her friend in Lottie's face.

Zan is different. He listens to her awkward ramblings. He loves To Kill a Mockingbird as much as she does, and his dark eyes are irresistible. His words are few and far between, but when he does speak, she can't help but listen.

The trouble is, Zan was the driver in the accident, and now Lottie's discovered he lied to her about what happened that night. Now she must decide if trusting him again will lead to real forgiveness, or deeper heartache.
 The Good
  • Zan
  • Good cast of characters
The Bad
  • Unoriginal
  • Plot twist was blatantly obvious

  Some days I question why I try reading New Adult. Other days, I drool over pretty covers, book boyfriends, and amazing writing and remember why I love New Adult. Deeper We Fall resides in the former category. It isn't that bad by any means. It's just recycled. From the very beginning of this book, I felt like I had read it before. It uses a lot of the cliche themes that are overdone in New Adult and tosses them together.

  Lottie wasn't an easy read for me. I found her to be annoying. For me, I felt like the author tried too hard to make her endearing but she overdone it. There were a few parts of Lottie's internal dialogue that I skipped. I just couldn't do it. Zan on the other hand. Shew. Even though the plot twist with him was visible a mile away, I loved me some Zan. He was a very sweet guy. That's the reason why I think Lottie and he didn't make a good match. He seemed way more mature than her and at times I questioned their relationship.

  There is a diverse cast of characters to be found in Deeper We Fall, though. I really enjoyed that aspect. And I enjoyed hating Zack. He truly was scum. All in all, Deeper We Fall will appeal to die hard New Adult fans. It hits on several key components of the genre. As long as you don't mind reading something similar to other books, I think Deeper We Fall is a safe pick.

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.


  1. Looks good, sounds kind of dull. Hmm. I'm not sure about this one.

    1. It's a lot of the same stuff from NA. It's enjoyable, just repetitive!

    2. That's the problem I'm having with NA. It seems like a lot of the same stuff over, and over, and over.

    3. We are definitely in the same boat. A lot of the NA books I pick up are like that and makes me wonder if I should keep trying with the genre! Vicious cycle.
