A standalone, sequel novel to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today best-selling Falling Into You.
My name is Colton Calloway. You've heard part of my story, but it turns out there's more. My little girl, Kylie, is all grown up. Seventeen, beautiful, and talented, just like her mother. And just like Nell, my daughter seems to have fallen for a bad boy, one with a lot of darkness and a lot of secrets.
You thought you knew the whole story. You thought it was over. Happily ever after for everyone.
You were wrong.
My name is Oz Hyde, and you’ve never met me. I’m part of the story, too, but I’m an aside, a quick line or two you’d all but forgotten about. Well guess what? I’ve got my own story to tell.
Buckle up, ‘cause this is gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride.

This had everything I love in a romantic love story. You get to see the couple get together with a few (as usual) obstacles, but the love that builds between Kylie and Zo is so beautiful. The open relationship that Kylie has between her dad is so unbelievable, something that I wish my husband had with our daughters. I know it's only a book, but this one really pulled me in. I took the book everywhere with me and listened to it every free second I had. I haven't even finished the book yet but I wanted to start writing the review while it was fresh I my mind. This is my second book written by Jasinda Wilder And both books have far surpassed my expectations in a romance story. I hope there is more like this coming.
I was hesitant to pick up this book, as I wasn't sure if I wanted to revisit Colt and Nell and experience their daughter's story. I was SO wrong. I shouldn't have waited. Even the blurb says "you think you know, but you have no idea" and that couldn't be more accurate. Colt and Nell are present, but they have a rather limited part in the story. I absolutely LOVED Kylie and Oz. I loved how the book was written from Oz and Colt's POV. The conflicts were both expected and will completely blind side you. Again, Jasinda Wilder tackles difficult subjects with so much grace that it leaves you a little bit staggered. I 100% recommend this book while you continue on through the series.
The narrators were excellent. There were separate narrators for Oz, Kylie, and Colt. They were all strong and did a great service to the characters. Especially the narrator for Oz.
Just remembering the feelings of first love and the butterflies of that time etc.... I loved Oz although I felt like Kylie didn't necessarily live in the real world. I don't know why I didn't see it about who Oz's mother was.
Oz. Because he just loved her so much and wanted to do right by her. It was sweet. And the fact that he wouldn't sleep with her till she was 18.
Everything. I really like them a lot.
I couldn't stop listening. I had my earphones in at work and nobody could talk to me. lol
I loved Coltons feelings at the talent show. Where he was seeing the connection between Kylie and Oz. He knew because of him and Nell and their connection in music and how intimate it was for them. As a parent myself, I see things when my children have gone thru those things and so I could relate to Colton there.
It reminded me a lot of "Falling Into You" which I loved, but it wasn't as good. The writing was okay, a lot of repeated statements and a lot of fluff. I liked Oz but I don't know, the whole story line was a lot less intense than I had anticipated. I won't give anything away but the big secret is kind of random and doesn't really change anything in the story. And Ben's mom should have paid for the hospital bill anyways since her son is the one that did it so I was confused as to why She was so thankful and why it was such a big deal? I was thinking that the big secret would be the Oz's dad was a mega superstar or something cool.
I'd rank Falling Under in the top 10. I liked both Gabriel Vaughan and James Fouhey's performance.
One of the things I liked the best was the way they made music together. Oz went from being unsure of himself to just brimming with confidence.
I've only listened to Gabriel one other time so I knew I'd like him with this one as well.
Almost all of Ben's scenes. My heart felt all the emotions he did.
If you liked the first two in the series you'll definitely like this one as well.
I have read several books by Jasinda Wilder. I will continue to read them. As for the narrators......NO, I won't listen to another.
The ending was predictable.
Overly dramatic OZ!
I think that I may have enjoyed this book more if I read it instead of listened. The two male narrators were not well suited for Colt or Oz. Colt didn't sound like the bad ass guy that I imagined in the earlier book about him and Nell. As for Oz, he was so sappy and dramatic sounding at times. It felt more like a cheesy romance novel that would have Fabio on the cover. It was too much!! It was very distracting for me.
Overall the book was not great and not bad. It was enjoyable, but forgettable.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I loved it!! this series was bitter sweet at times...but the story of these couples will keep you interested....this is about Kylie and Oz and it does start a little slow...but give it a chance it is well worth it!! And yes I would recommend it!!!
The characters are well developed and very real...I love anything Jasinda writes....she knows how to rip your heart out and put it back together again...it was perfect!!
There were many, but I am going to say the ending!
Oh yes....there is tragedy in this book and firsts....and the ending will make you cry...at least it did me!!
I really enjoyed this series, and I am hoping for another one....I want to know how Kylie and Oz share there lives together and I never get tired of hearing about our other couples...and would love for Ben to find happiness too...this is a feel good ending book...and those are my favorite kinds...as always Jasinda Wilder does not disappoint...if you have read the other books in this series...this is a must read...don't hesitate....put it in your cart now and buy it...I listened to this almost in one setting...and you will want to too!!! 2 Thumbs up and a Highly recommend!!!!...now give us MORE!!!!! Yes I am a greedy reader...lol
