Falling into You | [Jasinda Wilder]

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. 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.

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.

    Story
    "Loved the beginning..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book just about lost me once it skipped ahead in time. N.Y. Part of story became irritating.


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

    That Nell fell for Kyle's brother. So much potential there that wasn't explored.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yeah. The narration was pretty good.


    Do you think Falling into You needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, but I know there is one.

    Story
    "Beautiful, Beautiful, Wrenching, Beautiful..."

    I thought this was going to be another trendy book...but this story gave me the smackdown...hard! I never saw it coming. I couldn't put it down. I haven't cried this hard in a long time. But the beauty of the story is also extremely uplifting. I urge you to listen to this book. I know I'm going to check out everything Jasinda has done. I thought this was just the way it should go...and I thought events were realistic. The narrators had it perfect, I am listening to it again. I look forward to the next book that is coming out soon....and I hope that Jasinda provides us some continuity in the next story... I like it when the characters are involved throughout the series...it makes it more believable and enjoyable. My only complaint (and it is a small one) is that the ending was rather abrupt and I hope that Jasinda will continue Nell and Colt's story in books to come. I WANT MORE!!!!

    Narrated and written beautifully, you'll have to listen to it to appreciate it!

    Story
    "Worth Reading / Listening to"
    If you could sum up Falling into You in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, sad & love


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

    when he passed


    Which character – as performed by Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve – was your favorite?

    all 3 main characters but I guess the guy she ends up with at the end


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    At first I was unsure of this book because of the age & actions involved. However it has ended up to be a good book - & I have to say, I love the SONG at the end of it.

    Story
    "The intensity sucks you in from the first chapter"
    What made the experience of listening to Falling into You the most enjoyable?

    I read extensively and this book is amazing. The characters are so perfectly conveyed. And the changes that Nell goes through is perfectly described. I could not stop listening. It is so intense. The story just sucks you in from the first and does not stop until the last page. In fact, I would like a sequel. I am dying to know if Colton and Nell get past their issues and live happily ever after. Maybe get married - have kids...? Wonderful book.


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

    When Colton sang the goodbye song (for the baby) to Nell in the hospital.


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

    How perfectly they fit the characters.


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

    Yes - I stayed up all night. I could not stop.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love a sequel.

    Story
    "DNF - not enough tension"

    I compulsively finish books but this was a DNF for me - I made it about the 3/4 mark. It may likely just be a style thing but I felt all the tension went out of the story. The story was technically well written, though. This was an Audible listen, the narrators were ok, didn't distract from the story.

    Story
    "I was a bit like HUMMMM at first then... OH my"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's based out of my home town and has some swagger and suspense and ART to it... A little bit of everything...


    What did you like best about this story?

    Once we got to the male narration and it became an ADULT story I was touched and pulled in by the changes and drama and unseen ... Well read it ... LOL I don't want to give it away..


    Have you listened to any of Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no, but i love the Gabriel Vaughan narration and would seek it out... Piper was just okay the normal OH my voice like in GREY.. Vaughan adds something nice to this story...


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

    I was stuck home and had surgery so it listen all the way... But really once you get to the second half your like.... OH my... And He did WHAT??


    Any additional comments?

    If you like a little swagger with your romance and drama, you won't be disappointed.. I loved it!

    "Heartbreaking and uplifting"

    I love when the narration uses a male for male voice and female for the female role. Both narrators did a wonderful job. I felt their pain and their comfort. It teaches us the importance of mourning so you can eventually move on. Thank you Jasinda Wilder for this touching novel.

    "Worst book EVER!!"
    What disappointed you about Falling into You?

    I read the views before picking this book and I'm guessing I downloaded the wrong one. This has to be the biggest waste of a credit. There was nothing enjoyable about this book at all.


    What was most disappointing about Jasinda Wilder’s story?

    The author really needs to expand her vocabulary past "and then".


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    Story
    "Caution! Kleenex box must handy while listening"

    Holy weeping batman! It took me a few days to finish this book, I would have to stop whenever I was about to cry, because I'm always around people. Lord this is book is a tear jerker. It's a great emotional story, I just really hate crying. I think this book would make and excellent chic flick with a "Notebook" & "Country Strong" kind of vibe. Life time best friends fall in love and become high school sweethearts, their perfect relationship is cut short by a freak accident that kills Nell's boyfriend. Nell is left to pick up the pieces of her life with unexpected help from her boyfriends older brother Colton. It is a very worthy listen if you are in need of a good cry.
