The Year We Fell Down

Book 1, The Ivy Years - The Ivy Years #1

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The sport she loves is out of reach. The boy she loves has someone else. What now?

She expected to start Harkness College as a varsity ice hockey player. But a serious accident means that Corey Callahan will start school in a wheelchair instead.

Across the hall, in the other handicapped-accessible dorm room, lives the too-delicioius-to-be-real Adam Hartley, another would-be hockey star with his leg broken in two places. He's way out of Corey's league.

Also, he's taken.

Nevertheless, an unlikely alliance blooms between Corey and Hartley in the "gimp ghetto" of McHerrin Hall. Over tequila, perilously balanced dining hall trays, and video games, the two cope with disappointments that nobody else understands.

They're just friends, of course, until one night when things fall apart. Or fall together. All Corey knows is that she's falling. Hard.

But will Hartley set aside his trophy girl to love someone as broken as Corey? If she won't, she will need to find the courage to make a life for herself at Harkness, one which does not revolve around the sport she cannot play, or the brown-eyed boy who is afraid to love her back. 

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 01, 2014 – Bowen (Coming In from the Cold) imbues the first Ivy Years new adult contemporary with heart and soul. Ice hockey has always been college freshman Corey Callahan's passion until a serious accident leaves her unable to play, let alone walk unassisted. While moving into one of Harkness College's two wheelchair-accessible dorm rooms, Corey meets hockey player Adam Hartley, a former teammate of her older brother. A drunken dare caused Adam to break his leg, which relegated him to the neighboring room and a season off the ice. Despite the disdain of Adam's society-princess girlfriend, Adam and Corey hit it off quickly, bonding over their injuries and a shared love of an hockey video game and soon Corey wants more. But does Adam? Alternating points of view, Bowen skillfully conveys the roller-coaster emotions of two damaged young adults trying to find their way through tough issues and makes us care deeply about what happens to them. This page-turner will have readers eagerly awaiting Bowen's next book. (BookLife)
