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.

SO SO!

This book started off good but went down hill form there. I almost felt like I was reading a different book towards the end. It wasn't a total bomb for me but almost. Wait for this one to go on sale.

Tragic and Heartfelt

What made the experience of listening to Falling into You the most enjoyable?

You can feel the pain of the characters in this book. Nell is a girl that's headed for accomplishing great things in life but when tragedy strikes her path is changed forever. You get to see this perfect girl with her perfect life turned upside. The struggles she goes through is not pretty or glamourized, it seems so real. Their is no way the author or someone close to her didn't live through something very similar to this.

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

Although this is not really part of the book at the very end someone sings the song Falling Into You and it was so beautiful.

Which scene was your favorite?

Playing the guitar in the hospital. I won't add anything else, don't want to spoil anything.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The hospital scene with the guitar.

Any additional comments?

Unlike the other reviews I didn't cry but it will break your heart for sure.

A super good book

This was my first by this author but definitely not my last. It had every aspect you’d want in a book. I was concerned with a character dying, but it was handled very well. My only complaint was that it ended too soon. It was a very erotic romance, with some great song lyrics. The song at the end was wonderful.

Heartbreaking

His was an emotional, heartbreaking story of a first love, loss, and new love found. A truly well written love story that was not easy and will gut you.

Be ready for tears...

Oh man. This book was full of emotional turmoil. I’m not sure I can handle finishing the series, but I did love it. Also, a perk to the audiobook: you get to hear Colton’s song “falling into you”... only listen if you are prepared to cry your eyes out.

I liked it but

I don't want to give anything away and for the most part it was a good story up until the middle, I guess. I didn't like that their tragedies we're pretty much the same thing except with different people and in different situations. So I was pretty much like, really!!!I just heard the story twice in the same book but in a different way. 🤷🏻‍♀️

An emotional page turner

I started listening to Audio books about 2 yrs ago to pass time while doing chores or exercise. This is the first time I have been brought to tears. it is really hard to exercise with a big lump in your throat. This is my first JW book and I will keep listening to the rest of the series. -Dink

Really Wanted to Like This One But No Go

What would have made Falling into You better?

I agree with another reviewer that this book seems like either the author's first book or a YA book gone awry. I'm a sucker for a good love story but this one just seemed too forced to me. That *may* have been surmountable if the writing was better but clunky writing along with a forced story was too much for me. I bowed out after 9 chapters and I am one to stick with a book as much as possible.

What was most disappointing about Jasinda Wilder’s story?

I'm probably in the minority but I prefer challenged relationships that turn into love (a la "Pride and Prejudice") as opposed to love at first site stories (a la "Romeo and Juliet"). And the fact that this one started with a relationship in the former category but then switched to the latter with Colton just rubbed me the wrong way.

Tearjerker but so good

I'm finding it so hard to review this book. The first time I listened to it I was in total shock. Months later I decided to listen again but I was afraid of how it was going to make me feel. But I love Jasinda Wilder so I took the plunge. Though I knew what to expect I still cried and I'm still sad. I love happy endings so I guess I'd just have to write my own. The story is still amazing the second time around.
