What are you willing to sacrifice for love?
Your family? Your freedom? What about your life?
She’s a wealthy, forty-three-year-old Upper East Sider with a PhD – He’s a twenty-three-year-old Dominican drug dealer from Washington Heights.
Kate Champion always did exactly what was expected of her. She was the perfect wife, the perfect mother – until the day she met Jaylee Inoa.
Their journey travels a path riddled with danger, deceit, scandal and loss – where nothing is at it seems. Yet Kate and Jaylee’s passion for one another remains nearly unstoppable.
Will this daring pair of lovers from two different worlds triumph over circumstance? Can they deny the past in their quest to be together? Or is fear the ultimate navigator - a force more powerful than love?
Kate Champion can’t imagine going back to the way her life was before she fell in love with Jaylee Inoa. She sacrificed herself and their unborn child to secure his safety and in turn sets off a chain of events that take her even deeper into sadness and insanity.
Her desperation for Jaylee leads her to places that she never thought that she would go and the pain only serves to remind her that she’s alive. But jealousy and heartbreak in the Heights can lead to only one place.
“What have I done, within just a year’s time, but to completely ruin my life? I am not a seriously religious person, but I do have a vision of life on a fated path, like a natural unfolding of patterns. I understand that there are bumps and accidents, roadblocks and unforeseen detours.
Jaylee knows what Kate did for him. He only wants to be free again to hold her and see their child grow. But there are rumors that a lifelong enemy is spending time with his girl. If it’s true, then blood will spill. When he gets out, he knows where he’s going and who will be the one left standing.
"Love is triumphant, until we all fall down.”
I am completely and utterly obsessed with Fear of Heights! It’s one of those books that makes you talk out loud to the characters (I had some choice words with Kate on more than one occasion!) and in the end, it left me shattered in the very best way.
Don’t get me wrong. I am still Team Kate – through and through. I understood her and related to her downward spiral. It wasn’t pretty and it turned me inside out – but she still held tightly to her humanity and her love for Jaylee.
Mara kept me on the razor’s edge to the very end and never let up – not even once. Her talent defies description and will only continue to astonish readers well into the future…
