why won’t my lemons stay on my lemon tree

When I bought this lemon tree it had a couple of lemons on it. I’ve had it for 2 years now and it blooms a lot then the fruit starts to form until it gets to the size of a pea, then it turns yellow and falls off. Help. What is wrong with my tree? I fertilize it every year. What am I doing wrong?
