THE FALLBACK by Mariah Dietz

Available now in KindleUnlimited


Breaking up is hard to do.

It’s even harder when you’re not expecting it.

Brooke Jensen is a planner. Not only in her personal life but also professionally as one of the most sought after event planners in Chicago.

But, when the ideal life she built for herself, complete with handsome, long-term boyfriend and perfect apartment crumbles, she realizes there are some things you just can’t plan for.

While trying to start anew from her best friend’s guest room and discovering the best doughnuts in the city, an idea sparks to life when she meets Levi. He’s intriguing, funny, and shockingly good-looking, and what had been a few stray thoughts becomes a new passion for Brooke, a blog detailing learning how to be single. The project introduces Brooke to new people and experiences, and keeps returning her back to Levi.

But, Brooke learns kismet may have been wrong when she learns Levi is the last person she should be interested in.

Falling for the wrong guy once has Brooke hesitant to start a new relationship, but Levi is quickly proving that The Fallback might be even better.

Christie’s Review


“It’s difficult to always strive for perfection and then accept that sometimes perfection isn’t what we’d originally thought it was. Sometimes perfection is what we didn’t see. What we didn’t know. Sometimes, perfection is the fallback.”


Mariah Dietz has given her readers a story packed with emotions, a beautiful romance, some twists I didn’t see coming, and most importantly, an important life lesson.

Brooke has some serious trust issues, and she has every right to have them. She has grown to expect people to hurt her and eventually abandon her. That impacts all aspects of her relationships. Her only friend is Felicity, and she has a good relationship with her Grammy. She has never been able to give her heart freely or completely to anyone. However, when Levi enters her life, she will have to face her issues. Will Levi finally be the one whom Brooke gives her heart to?

Levi is the whole package. He is intelligent, sexy, and has a heart of gold. He, like Brooke, has had his heart broken, but he realizes she is the one for him. He is incredibly patient with her. He isn’t perfect as readers will discover, but neither is Brooke. Every decision he makes, he does it with her heart in mind.

The story was well-written, and as I mentioned earlier, Dietz has some surprises in store. Those added more depth to the romance between Brooke and Levi. While this is a romance, it’s also a story about a young woman discovering who she is and loving herself despite her imperfections.

I love when a writer has a deeper meaning within the pages of a book, and Dietz is one of those writers who has a talent for this. She has left me with a precious little gem. People aren’t perfect, and life isn’t perfect. It can be painful at times. As she showed me through her secondary characters, such as Felicity, her Grammy, and yes even, Catherine, life is about the people who love you. Instead of concentrating on those people who don’t care about you, bask in the love and joy of those who do. Life is much better that way. Thanks, Mariah Dietz for reminding me of that.
