Gianna LeBron grew up in poverty. Destined to change her circumstances and her zip code, she rises up from the inner-city streets with an Ivy League education and affluent husband. A few short years later, she’s alone with three children, destitute and desperate.

Finding herself in the same hell she’d fought so hard to escape, and determined to find a solution, she compromises who she is. Selling her soul for the almighty dollar, she does what she has to do in order to provide for her children.

Caught between a secret love and her toddler’s unending need for medical care, Gianna’s forced to decide how far she’ll go to heal her daughter and save the man she loves.

My Review

Fallen Woman by Author Stephie Walls is a stunning and heart-stopping friends-to-lovers, contemporary romance story.

Peace doesn’t remain in my life. It’s a calm before a storm, the eye of a hurricane. There’s always something brewing, a typhoon building.

Fallen Woman resonated in my soul. I felt like I was falling in love on repeat with every turn of the page.  The dynamics between the characters was fascinating.  I loved learning about them as individuals, but reading about how their lives came to cross paths added a background that is not always present in stories. Gianna LeBron could ultimately be summed up into one word, determination.  She was relentless in her pursuit of bettering her life and finding a way out of her past. Jase Lane was protective, swoony, and endearingly sappy. He was also a fierce lover. His concern for Gia and her children was one of the most beautiful things.

“The Lord orchestrates every encounter. There’s no movement in the world He didn’t choreograph for His purpose. Our meeting here is no different. Allow Him to provide for you.”

Everyone needs an angel and Author Stephie Walls gave us one in the form of Miss Pearl. Seriously one of my favorite secondary characters, EVER!  Her relationship with Gianna was one to be cherished.  It didn’t matter that they weren’t the same ethnic background or age. Just that one needed help and the other provided.  It brought a steady stream of tears to my eyes.

“That’s what daddies do, Gia. They fix their little girls.”

Waiting for what I craved in this story was the sweetest torture…it nearly killed me.  I kept wanting to wave a magic wand and get the favored next step.  At one point, my eyes misted over and I silently cried for Gia. I sat and imagined her disappointment, pain, regret, fear. It was so overwhelming and unfair. And then the dam broke, and there was nothing stopping the flood of tears that flowed down my face as my heart shattered.  I was constantly surprised by the twists that occurred in the story, reaching into the my core and wrenching out every emotion in the storehouse.

He never wavered; he never moved – that man was solid as a rock while he held me at my lowest.

Fallen Woman book was a wrecking ball for my heart.  I suffered with the characters. I laughed with them, cried with them, loved with them.  It was altogether amazing and, in the end, triumphant.  A highly recommended, favorite read of 2017.

I was reminded of how far I had to fall to appreciate the rise.
