Review: Coming Down by Carrie Elks

Women's Fiction / Contemporary Romance

Date Published: September 24, 2014

Twenty-eight-year-old Beth Lawrence finally has her life back on track. A job she loves, a wealthy husband and a beautiful home are a far cry from the tragedy that struck when she was nineteen. But now that her past seems firmly behind her, an old flame walks back into her life. Bringing back painful memories of a time she's worked hard to forget, reviving a passion she tried to bury years before.
Niall Joseph is an up-and-coming artist, recently returned from success in America. Volunteering to teach in an inner-city drug clinic, the last person he expects to see is the girl who broke his heart nine years earlier. Working closely together allows their old wounds to heal, forging a deeper connection between them. One that slowly starts to burn.
As she becomes tangled up with a neglected child and her drug-addict mother, Beth finds herself drawn to Niall. But neither of them can anticipate how hard it is to tread the thin line between friendship and desire. 

My Review

I loved it, is a novel very realistic and captivating. 
Beth has had a very difficult life and was very hurt and scared, with no desire to live until she met Simon, a man older than her. Marrying him has found security and tranquility, the only thing missing is the passion. Shea has a job that really like: she works in a club for children of drug users and is very good because she lived on her person the effects of the drug. However, Niall reappears in her life: he was her great love and the cause of many of her problems in the past. Will have to choose whether to risk and follow her heart or stay in the tranquility of her marriage. 
This book is really well written: I really enjoyed the author's choice to narrate the past of Beth little by little through flashbacks. The characters are well defined and realistic. I loved the little Allegra, the daughter of a drug addict: is very sweet and tender. Beth is a beautiful and normal woman, that is able to overcome her fears. Niall is a man very much in love and struggle with a lot of passion to win back the love of Beth. 
It 's a beautiful story that truly touches the heart.
