Review ~ Falling Into Us by Jasinda Wilder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This amazing sequel to Falling into You was just as heartbreaking and incredible. At first I was expecting a continuation of Colton and Nell’s story. Although they did make appearances, they were the main characters in the story, and that was more than all right.
Becca and Jason were best friends with Nell and Kyle since they were little. As we know in book one, Kyle dies, and we get to see how the two best friends deal with it.
In a story that takes us from high school to adulthood, we have a great read.
Becca and Jason had their own problems to deal with on top of their best friend’s death. It was a difficult road and every time things started to go good for them another disaster would strike. They went through so much. My heart broke for them each and every time something happened. I could barely keep my chest from tightening and my throat from constricting. But through it all, they had each other and their love never faltered. It kept them going.
Wilder did another great job building these characters and their relationships, thoughts, struggles, and fears. It’s always a special reading experience when reading a book and you can feel what the characters feel.
Becca expresses part of her daily struggles here:
The silent girl
The smart girl
The valedictorian scribbling maledictions to no one”
And here is a part of Jason’s thoughts:
“You’re my woman. Of course
I’m responsible for you. It’s my highest duty in life to take care of you, protect you.”
Here is both of them:
“Promise me you’ll love me forever. No matter what.”
“I can’t promise you forever, Beck. I can’t promise you forever, because that’s not long enough.”
So many stories I read are with the bad guy gone good when he meets his love. Well, Jason was always good. Becca was always good. Regardless of their struggles and pains, they were good people, good to each other. That was how they got through it all.
I recommend this story to those that enjoy some sexy times, struggles, angst, love, romance, and great characters.
THE STORY YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW…
When Kyle Calloway died, he took a part of Nell with him. She wasn’t the only one left to pick up the pieces, however; Kyle’s death left a gaping hole in the hearts and lives of his parents and his older brother Colton, and ultimately broke the will of the girl he loved.
THE STORY YOU NEVER IMAGINED…
Becca de Rosa is Nell’s best friend. When Kyle died, Nell was so devastated that no one could reach her, not even her best friend Becca. As she tries to help Nell through her grief, Becca’s own life is thrust into turmoil, and everything she knows is changed.
Jason Dorsey asked Nell out the week after her sixteenth birthday, but that date never happened. Instead, he ended up going out with Nell’s best friend, Becca. He had no way of knowing, then, how that one date would send him on a life-long journey with Becca. He had no way of knowing the tragedies and triumphs he would experience, or that in Becca, he might find the love of a lifetime.
THE HEARTACHE YOU’LL NEVER FORGET…
