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.

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
Someone looking for detailed sex
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.
