Then, one stormy August night, he died, and the person I was died with him.
Colton didn’t teach me how to live. He didn’t heal the pain. He didn’t make it okay. He taught me how to hurt, how to not be okay, and, eventually, how to let go.
Oh, where to begin … Falling Into You is the complete package. It will make you cry, laugh, fall in love – twice – and then probably cry some more. It’s heart breaking, intense and achingly beautiful.
Nell loved Kyle. How could she not? He was gorgeous and talented – everything a girl could want. He also happened to be her best friend from the time she was in diapers until he took his last breath. She loved him fiercely, and he loved her back just as much. He was her world … until he wasn’t part of it any longer.
Nell loves Colton. There is just one problem with that sentence. Colton is Kyle’s older brother. That kind of plants him firmly in the “do not touch” column. Refusing to deal with Kyle’s death, Nell masks her pain with alcohol and other destructive behaviors. She’s not just broken, she’s completely shattered. Colton isn’t exactly in wonderful shape either, but he’s determined to help Nell go through the stages of grief in order to let Kyle go and regain her life.
Well, first off, I absolutely adored Kyle and when he passed in the book I was a blubbering mess. My husband literally turned to me and said, “Lauren, you do realize he’s not real, right?” I mean I was bawling my eyes out. It was pathetic. I was convinced that no man could measure up to Kyle for Nell because he was just too stinkin’ perfect. Ha! I was wrong … Colton is … well … he’s hot! An alpha male kind of guy. He’s big, bad, tough, tattooed and hard, yet soft and tender. He’s the perfect mix of bad boy and good guy. It was hard not to fall in love with him.
Holy hotness! If you want to read a steamy sex scene or two, THIS is the book for you. There’s nothing too extreme. Fair warning though, some bedroom romps do get a little kinky. Colton is a passionate guy and it definitely comes across in his love making. I had to fan myself a couple times.
There aren’t many authors who can write like Jasinda. She has this ability to bring her stories to life – to make a work of fiction feel like reality. I fell head over heels for her after reading Wounded and Falling Into You only helped to solidify my complete adoration. This is definitely a book you don’t want to pass up!
