Falling into You

Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother, Colton, for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death.

Publisher's Summary

I wasn't always in love with Colton Calloway; I was in love with his younger brother, Kyle, first. Kyle was my first one true love, my first in every way. 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.

Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother, Colton, for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death. She seems to be harboring a deeply rooted pain, a heavy weight of guilt, and regret. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but he can't help himself. Trust doesn't come easily for either of them, and they both have demons. Together, they learn the purpose of pain and the meaning of healing, and the importance of forgiveness.

    "Sad"

    This is an incredibly sad book. I wasn't expecting this and I guess when I listen to a book I'm looking for entertainment - this book was a tragedy!

    "Unbelievable. Awful."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No clue.


    Has Falling into You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve ’s performance did you like?

    The narrators were fine


    Any additional comments?

    This book was unrelatable & unbelievable. I don't know the reason for it but I could not connect with the characters at all. I didn't feel that there was any love between the main characters, when Kyle dies I didn't feel any pain for the loss & when she jumps right into things with his brother at his funeral.. I couldn't help but roll my eyes. I didn't finish this book because I couldn't connect with any of the characters. The initial love scene took way to long & I didn't feel like there was even any real love between them. I was highly disappointed in this book. Maybe someday I'll get around to finishing it but I doubt it.

    "A Sweet but forgetable story"

    This book was good, although I can't say I will want to re-read it or even remember it in a few weeks. The way the author describes the main character's pain is very realistic, but the circumstances of the romance seem very contrived.

    Story
    "Gut wrenching but inspiring"

    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:


    “That’s me
    The silent girl
    The stutterer
    The prisoner
    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.

    However, I think the performance lacked a bit. The man's voice could have been a bit more in touch with the character's emotions. It almost felt monotone throughout.

    I recommend this story to those that enjoy some sexy times, struggles, angst, love, romance, and great characters.

    "Not worth them time or Money."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I purchased this book on sale and I still think I wasted my money. Not sure who would enjoy it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jasinda Wilder again?

    Not likely.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Falling into You?

    The detailed love scenes but then the book would only be 30 minutes long!

    "Endearing Story! Great Characters!"
    Where does Falling into You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This would be one of my top audiobooks that i have listened to so far.


    What other book might you compare Falling into You to and why?

    I am not sure I can compare this book to any other book I have read. The story was unique, endearing and surprising.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are too many moments in the book that moved me. While reading this book my emotions were all over the place and I think very similar to what the characters were going through. As a reader, you want to have the "hero" character which you get in both Kyle and Colton but as soon as you are comfortable loving the Kyle character the story changes and in steps Colton.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a surprisingly great book. It provides a mix of emotions that keep you interested without all the sappy over played sex scenes. I love characters with multiple layers and unexpected past.

    Story
    "Graphic sex scenes take away potential"
    What disappointed you about Falling into You?

    Honestly, I can take quite a bit of adult language/content. I felt there was so much focus on describing bodily fluids and swollen private parts that it really took the focus away for a story that had so much potential. All the other parts of the story were under developed. If I felt a whisp of a tearful connection to the characters' experiences it was short lived as the description of it was short lived.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Usually I listen and if I love something so much I'll get the book too and read it so I can relive it in more detail. Sometimes listening makes going back a few pages a little difficult. I'm currently listing to a memoir. A funny one. (With F worlds too!)


    How could the performance have been better?

    I think a little more natural readings would've helped the listen but definitely wouldn't help the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Falling into You?

    I hate to cut anything from a book. The writer puts it there for a reason. I wouldn't want to miss any of it even if I end up not liking it.


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't hate this book. I just wish I had a little more warning about the nature of the context. If I wanted graphic sex scenes, I feel like I would've chosen an adult book and not a young adult or new adult book. I chose YA and NA for the coming of age experiences and this was borderline S&M reading material. It makes it awkward.

    "Suspense, romance, sadness, joy and LOVE!"
    Where does Falling into You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I wish I could give "Falling into You" more than 5 stars. I truly enjoyed this book and will read it many times. I loved the characters and felt their emotions that spanned the spectrum from desperation to desire. I fell in love with them! I shed many tears along with them. If you are thinking of buying this book don't think twice. "Just do it!" I loved the song at the end of the book. Nice touch! Great song!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The need that Nell and Colt had for each other even before they knew it themselves. Two broken souls finding each other.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved the whole book. But, one scene would be when Nell found Colt playing his guitar on the rooftop before sunrise and the discussion they had.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried. However, they felt like cleansing tears more than sadness. The author truly brought the characters into my heart and mind.


    Any additional comments?

    Gabriel Vaughan did a fantastic job. What a voice! I would love to see this novel on Broadway! Someone, please, write the screenplay.

    Any additional comments?

    THE BOOK STARTS OFF BY GIVING YOU A SHORT SNIPIT OF TWO TEENAGERS GROWING UP TOGETHER BEING THE BEST OF FRIENDS AND GROWING INTO A STRONG TEENAGE ROMANCE. THEY KNEW EVERYTHING- AND ONE THING THEY DID KNOW THAT THEY WOULD GROW OLD TOGETHER, JUST AS SOON AS THEY GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL. THE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE KYLE AND NELL. THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH THAT YOU ARE PAINED WHEN THEIR WEEKEND GETAWAY TURNED FATAL.. WE KNOW THAT KYLE DIES, AND THAT'S JUST THE SYNOPSIS AND THE BEGINNING. WHAT HAPPENS THE REST OF THE STORY MAKES YOU CRY,CRY,CRY!!!!! I'M NOT HERE TO SUGAR COAT THINGS, THIS BOOK SUCKS!! NOT BAD SUCKS, BUT DON'T READ IT WHILE YOUR PMS'ING BECAUSE THE UGLY CRY WILL BE UGLIER!

    ALL NELL KNEW WAS KYLE. WHEN COLTON CALLOWAY (KYLE'S BROTHER) RETURNS TO MOURN THE DEATH OF HIS BROTHER, HE JUST KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING ABOUT NELL THAT HE NEEDED AND WANTED. COLTON WASN'T THE SAME AS HIS BROTHER- HE WAS THE SMOKING BAD BOY. HE WAS OLDER.AND DEF OFF-LIMITS. BUT HE MAY BE THE ONLY THING THAT SAVES HER LIFE AND HER SANITY.

    THIS BOOK WAS VERY EMOTIONAL, YOU WENT THRU THE STAGES OF GRIEF, ANGER AND HAPPINESS. THE AUDIO MADE IT SO MUCH REALER. IT WAS DONE BY A MALE AND FEMALE NARRATOR, AND YOU GOT THE FEELING THAT THEY FELT SO MUCH WHEN IT WAS BEING NARRATED.
