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.

    "Good Listen"
    Would you listen to Falling into You again? Why?

    No, I think once was enough. Good, but not good enough to listen to again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling into You?

    Jasinda Wilder put so many memorable moments into this book. Her writing is so emotionally detailed.


    What does Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pure emotion. Some of the other reviewers said that Gabriel Vaughan was not a good fit for this book, but I thought he was AWESOME! I loved when it was his turn! Piper Goodeve was also very good too!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but only because of all the good reviews. Maybe my expectations were way to high, and it only disappointed me in the end. Don't get me wrong, it was a good book. I read several reviews that said have tissues! I didn't cry at all. It was VERY sad, but I guess it didn't hit me like it did some of the others. If you want an emotional book, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover was really good. I can say if there were to be a second book to this, I don't think I would listen:(


    Any additional comments?

    All in all, I would say it's worth a credit!

    Story
    "Should be rated "R""
    What would have made Falling into You better?

    Taken out the graphic sex parts.


    What was most disappointing about Jasinda Wilder’s story?

    Too much "very graphic" sex. The story was interesting until the "R" rating started.


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

    O.K.


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

    I think you can figure that out from this review. Sometimes leaving some things to the imagination is better than spelling it out.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to read good graphic hot sex, read 50 shades. PLUS I thought this was a YA book. - way too graphic for teenagers.

    Story
    "DEEPLY MOVING, EMOTIONAL & INTENSELY ROMANTIC TOO"

    This is a heartbreaking and emotionally painful listen but it's also full of overcoming life's bitter challenges as young Nell is brought to the brink of despair and self-loathing after the death of Kyle but through time, understanding, patience, hope and the support of the right man, she found out that her destiny was to love for a second time.

    It's raw, intense, passionate, deeply emotional, tragic and will simply rip your heart out and you'll grieve alongside Nell for all the lost dreams but then slowly you'll rejoice when she finally sees the glimpse of a future that's worth living for.... and his name is Colton. There's great chemistry, passion and their journey together to find happiness, contentment and love is very romantic.

    Worth a credit? What a well-thought out, well written, nicely paced and truly emotional life story that's packed full of heart wrenching scenes, dark scenes, beautiful scenes and spectacular fireworks in the sky scenes. So creditworthy..... HELL YEAH and the characters and events will stay with you long after the listen has ended.

    Story
    "Two tortured souls fall in love"

    Nell is a runner. She runs all thru this heart wrenching story. I grew tired of her running from everything. She and Kyle are blissfully happy until the tragedy. Then the taboo union of she and Colton is edgy but believable and I wondered how they would pull it off. Make sure to have a dictionary handy when you read this book. JW's vocabulary is expansive but every term fit the emotion of the scene and adds a richness and color to the experience..

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What would have made Falling into You better?

    The sexual connection was way too graphic. The author could have done it without a play-by-play; it turned an otherwise sweet story into porn in my eyes.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I find it interesting and disturbing how some people turn emotional pain into physical pain (cutting/drinking/fighting).


    What aspect of Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve ’s performance would you have changed?

    After the part of Nell read by Piper Goodeve, I thought Gabriel Vaughan's reading was humdrum and unemotional. Needs more "uumph".


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    They were sweet love stories on two totally different levels. I did like the music communication factor.

    Story
    "Put me to sleep"
    What disappointed you about Falling into You?

    I found the graphic sex scenes too lengthy and descriptive. Very boring.


    What could Jasinda Wilder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More story - I found myself waiting for the "love" scenes to be over but I they dragged on and on, way too much unnecessary/boring/pointless detail.


    Did Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, they did a good job but the material they had to work with was terrible, in my opinion.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not to me


    Any additional comments?

    This book is the most disappointing of all audio books - I can't believe I downloaded it.

    I love audio books that the characters come to life and have me feeling as if I was there too.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love the readers voice. I listen to many audiobooks and Piper Goodeve made me feel like she was Nell.

    Story
    "oh god oh god ohmigod!"
    What disappointed you about Falling into You?

    First off Nell repeats everything like oh god oh god ohmigod! 3 times! If I never hear this phrase again it would be too soon. The writing was just down write aggravating.


    What was most disappointing about Jasinda Wilder’s story?

    I know this story was suppose to be tragic and heart wrenching but what happen to love prevailing and saving the people!?!? It never happens just more depressing things.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration did a great job for what they had to work with.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO! The first coupld of chapters were good, then its nothing but depressing crap and if not that then they are banging the crap out of each other. Nothing ever gets solved. AND happy ending no nothing! They are even more messed up at the end of the book then the beginning!


    Any additional comments?

    This is not my normal type of book but some of the reviews on Amazon made it sound good, tbut really only if you want to walk away depressed would I tell you to read/listen to this book.
