The Fallback Review

Title: The Fallback

Author: Mariah Dietz

This is my first book by this author and I really fancied something a little lighter, this ticks that box nicely.

It’s a slow burn contemporary romance with a wedding planner! Now, I like a good wedding and a wedding planner book sounds like it will be right up my street. The cover is beautiful, clear and colourful, not hinting anything too dark or too comedic, a nice balance.

Brooke is a bit of a hot mess; she works, a lot! Her life takes a new direction and she totally takes it in her stride. Her best friend Felicity is my favourite character!

Levi is hot. He’s comfortable in his own skin, he knows who he is and what he’s about. He’s calm and collected and anyone who can make doughnuts gets my vote!

I’ve learned that I don’t like slow burn, too many missed opportunities in my opinion. It wasn’t angsty or drizzled with sexual tension, it just seemed to take a long time to get in it’s stride. Once there though it flew.

There seemed to be a lot packed into the end as everything was tied up and explained. I think had it been dual pov that might have helped to explain some of what was going on and helped the pacing even out a little.

I liked the style and the writing, the characters were a little all over but Felicity was totally my favourite!

It’s 3 and a half stars from me but I think a lot of that is personal preference. If you like a slow burn story this could definitely be for you!
