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.

This is a very HOT romance story. The story about Nell and Colton itself is pretty good, but the way this author, Jasinda Wilder writes a sex scene is unbelievable. WOW! Very well done. I'm almost finished with the next book in the series, Falling Into Us. You don't need to read the first one to enjoy the second one at all. Falling Into Us is much better too. The story between Becca and Justin is more about their lives and relationship with family than just the Hot sex scenes.
That was a beautiful story, so sad but wonderful
When Kyle is dying, but he's still making sure she's taken care of.
Made me cry, I really felt it for Kyle.
Good book hands down. The song was perfect very fitting. It will having looking for a box of tissues. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
I enjoy romance every so often but never reread. I have reread this story many times. The story is much more plausible than most romance stories and I don't find myself constantly rolling my eyes. The narrators are amazing and really give life to the characters.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I would not say it was an enjoyable listen. I would say however it was a very different take on love and a HEA.
I think it was the continuous way Colton pursues Nell.
Colton. He has such a low opinion of himself, but despite it all he has over come a lot in life. I believe that Gabriel Vaughan was able to reflect the conflict of Colton.
Yes. I cannot stress enough the emotional draw of this book. It is not a "feel good" love story. This story is one filled with sadness, acceptance, adversity and guilt.
I was emotionally washed out after listening to this book. That being said I believe it to be worth a credit definitely if you can handle an atypical love story.
Falling Into you was such a beautifully written tragic book; however, from the tragedy comes strength, healing and yes learning to love again. This book was 2 love stories in one. I can't begin to express the emotions and feelings I had when listening to this book, even after having read it before. Get ready to ugly cry, but it is oh so worth it! The narrators made this book and the song at the end by Jasinda Wilder just gave me chills and blew me away. I highly recommend this book.
I honestly put off hearing this book as I knew it was going to be emotionally wrenching so with a package of kleenex I starting listening and was gripped right off the start. It evokes memories of your first High School love and giving up your v card to a boy you thought you would love forever. I liked that it had some twists that I never seen coming
I loved the whole thing but that song at the end of the book should be recorded. and sold on cd. If that is the author singing the song She is one talented gal as it is a beautiful haunting song that I had to listen to over and over! i bought all three books in this series and I'm hoping the other 2 books will let me know what happens to Colt and Nell after the ending of the first book. Hopefully only good times as they have had enough sadness for one lifetime.
they both were great and made the book come alive. Piper's performance at the tree incident made it all so real and gut wrencing
Happy Endings are sometimes only achieved after profound sadness which makes you appreciate it all the more
