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.

Maybe, I will be more selective, and will not read the remaining books in the series.
Their performance was not as bad as the story line.
Almost all of them.
I stopped listening because the characters were such simps. It is possible the second half of the story with the older brother was better, but I doubt it.
No story just a lot of sex.. did not finish, would not read anything written by author .
How would you know! It was a complete waste of time and money.
Don't waste your $ or time,..
I wouldn't read another book from Jasinda Wilder. I wonder how many times she used the phrase, "and then." Also, her sex scenes after about 2 1/2 hours got a bit tedious. Get on with the story woman, there's more to life then sex. She needed more to her story line. As for the narrators, yes I would listen to them again.
Both voices were easy to listen to.
The narrators were fine
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.
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.
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:
The silent girl
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.
I purchased this book on sale and I still think I wasted my money. Not sure who would enjoy it.
The detailed love scenes but then the book would only be 30 minutes long!
This would be one of my top audiobooks that i have listened to so far.
I am not sure I can compare this book to any other book I have read. The story was unique, endearing and surprising.
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.
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.
