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.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Falling into Us is a different journey. This story has it all. Friendship, laughter, hurt, passion, tears, fear, lust, pain and ever lasting love. Jasinda Wilder's writing is even more powerful, even more lyrical. We're led into the beautifully broken world of Jason, Kyle's best friend, and Becca, Nell's best friend. Jason is triumphant in his life. He's a top-ranked football player in high school. He's also hiding physical and emotional pain, and that's before things fall apart with the events described in book one. Becca lives a life controlled her father, and she struggles with a serious stutter and mentally ill older brother. She's extremely intelligent, and overly focused. She's a survivor. This book was beautifully romantic, and heartwarming. There were parts that make you tear up, but for the most part it flowed seamlessly. It's told in alternating POVs from Jason and Becca. This story is highly emotional. You get to experience what it was like for Becca & Jason to fall in love, how they had deal with the loss of a beloved friend, and grow into two amazing young adults. This book was a beautiful love story that spanned over 8 years of Becca and Jason's life. They went through so much sadness and heartbreak, but through it all they had each other. I thought Falling Into You was amazing, but I think I might love this book even more. Becca and Jason were perfect for each other. Their love story was magnificent...to find someone at 16 and never lose the love they felt for each other. Just perfect! The sexual scenes started out sweet, gentle and loving. Both Becca & Jason were under the age of 18 when they first started having sex and I think the author did a tasteful job. As time goes on…Hot, Hot, even Hotter! Energizer Battery none stop hotness!! This book really blew me away. This is a book about surviving life with love. Jason and Becca's story sends them through situations that are heartbreaking and wonderful. Falling Into Us does offer a twist within the story. It was one that I did not so coming and it totally shocked me, but I understand why it was added. It however was an integral part of the story. An epic love story that I highly recommend!!
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
OUTSTANDING, BEAUTIFUL, AND REALISTIC
Every word is this book is beautifully written and all consuming. There are no word to say what this book will do to your mind, heart and sole. Every emotion you carry in your life,you will experience with this. Get ready.. this is Jasinda Wilder at her best. My best moments is always about Jason and his strength and never ending love for his Becca. And bringing Nell and Cole into this, helped me with the ending of both books, a tear jerking HEA.
That were outstanding. I knew with each change of voice who it was. They were not only good, but will capture you with each chapter of this book. You can't help but listen and be caught up into everything they were saying. I adored them in both books. I Fell Right into Them!
Yes, two! First Ben. that boy made me laugh and cry. And you have to listen or read this to understand why I choose him. And Second, Jason, with his father. He withstood so many obstacles, he became the better man when he was only a young boy.
This is Jasinda Wilder's best written book to date, I have no words to explain what you will feel with this. It felt real, life altering and it could be you or even your neighbors. But no matter who this may remind you of, it hits home, or down the street, it makes you appreciate what is. I listened, stopped, walked around wondering if what was coming was something they could handle. They always did, it was hard, but they would come back and face it head on. They were first loves, an first time lovers, and only knew each other, but they trusted one another so much in every thing. This is a book that is a must have in your collection. My favorite book was Falling into You, until this one. Both her books are now on my must have collection. I always hand these books to anyone that wants to read and hold on to something real. I thought Falling into YOU, was the best ever.. And now Jasinda Wilder took her second book and made me see we all are can with stand more than Nell and Colton did. Which was a lot. Like me, some of you will see part in here that have your life in it. I guess that is why I loved it so much.. This book felt so real, This is what goes on in a young person's life and follows them until they are young adults. It's not sappy, yes, I will say, there are sad times, but don't we all have those. You will laugh out loud, and cheer because of the happy times. And yes you may even cry out load, and finally you cheer them on to a better life. A deserving one. Please don't take this and wrap it up as a sad, sad, story, because it is a love story, and beautiful to behold. It's gentle, lovable, and so sweet to hear. The dark times they have, they hold tight and endure them. Again it is true love at it's best. Don't be afraid to get this book, listen to it, and take it all in. Let it wrap around you and make it your own special love story. Yes this is Jason's and Becca's story, and it fantastically told. It has some amazing love scenes that may even take you back a few years. . Short and to the point, It will be hard to ever replace this one and what it all centers around. Love, trust openness, and honor. The kind you have . It let's you see that opening up and letting someone in to help you thru some of life's harder times is the best thing sometimes. And having someone that is there beside you through life's most enjoyable times as well.. And they have some wonderful journeys. Jason and Becca took what was given to them, and made it work for them. They were adorable, making it work in college in small apartments never once thinking they had it hard, They just kept moving toward what they wanted. They set high goals in high school and made sure each other made it.. Helping each other. As only they could. They are strong, willing to show how much they love on another, and face anything....good and bad, And they did it right beside each other. always holding on to each other. These two had more heart and drive when the odds where so against them. They are driver to make a better life than what they have seen while growing up.. It's shows how parents can become over protective and what that can do to a young mind, You will think about this book if you are a parent or guardian of a life that you are molding. . This books feels like it should be read every so often to reminds us of what is dear and near to us all... For me it was, true love, family, and dear dear friends. Buy this, use your credit, inhale all it has to offer. I don't give a review like this not unless it moves me. And this book did. . Enjoy and Happy Listening. Be prepared to Cheer, Laugh, Wonder, and at cry with them both.endure so much. good and bad.. If nothing else, you will need tissues for the happy times, which you will love, and the sad times. that make you think.. Enjoy.
Mommy of Pookies
While I like a little romance I felt like I kept listening to the same sex scene over and over.
Less sex, more plot and not so sappy!
Yes - the performance was well done.
I just didn't think it had a very good plot. I felt like a 16 year old wrote the book.
I like chick lit, but thinking romance audio books are not for me!
My favorite part of this book was the closure at the end of the book that it gave to Nell and Colton from Falling Into You. It made me sigh and I was so happy they got their HEA. I had to wait a while to listen to this book after the emotional wringer that Falling Into You put me through. I loved that book but wow!
We briefly met Jason and Becca in Falling Into You. This book gives so much to both characters. It isn't as emotional as the first book but there is a really gut wrenching part that brought tears to my eyes. You could really feel Becca's pain. The way it was written and narrated made it intense. I'm not a fan of "six months later" and "one year later", etc. There was a bit of it in this book, most of the time the author gave you a summary of what had happened during that time. I liked that much better so you didn't feel like part of the story was left out.
I did feel some ick factor when they had sex as a teenager. It is very descriptive, that doesn't usually bother me, it was just their age. It was well written, nothing the author did to make it bad, just bothered me a bit. Overall this is a great book and well worth the credit.
I wish we would have found out what happened with Ben's girlfriend Kate and the baby. She said she was going to keep it but we never heard anything after that.
Jason, he was such a great person, patient and understanding to Bekka.
yes and they are all great.
When Nell and Colton finally got married.
I mean it, Falling Into You was simple but Brilliant - Nell, Kyle and Colton, all compelling, with much heartbreak and much love - to me with an ending that couldn't be improved, except to give us more - and Jasinda did that with this book - and made Becca and Jason as compelling as Nell, Kyle and Colton - are they too good to be true ?in some ways yes..but I also thought Jasinda captured real emotions, real impacts and didn't use the old "misunderstandings" separating people for weeks and time on end - without getting to the bottom of what was going on....most of what I loved about these books was the hopefulness - and the fact that these characters didn't let tragedy, conventional notions and guilt stop them from the love we all deserve and allowed them to reach for (and achieve) something more.
Once again its a great Jasinda Wilder read. I absolutely love her characters and the stories. I think out of both Falling into You and Falling into Us, Falling into Us was my favorite. The relationship roller coaster between Becca and Jason and the stressors that could tear a relationship apart and the strength these characters possess kept me listening.
After liking Falling into You, I was happy to find this book. However just like the first book I found that there were moments where the story just drags. The conversations between the characters just go on & on sometimes that I often was able to tune out yet not miss anything important. By the middle of the book I wondered what the point of the book was but then it picked up and became enjoyable. The ending was so lovely and happy it made me glad I stuck to it.
I don't know why I just could not get into this book; most likely it's due to the story being centered around kids and I have a hard time getting into a story that feels like something my teenagers would read instead of me.
On a positive note, I liked the narrator and am not saying this is a poorly written book just not something for a 30+ year old reader who needs more depth in my books.
