Review: Falling Into You by Jasinda Wilder

March 20, 2013
Title: Falling Into You
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Published: Self | March 16, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Adult
Goodreads | Amazon
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.




Review:

Oh WoW! I'm Speechless. FIY definitely hit a mark.

     Falling Into You seems likes a tearjerker book but in reality, there was only one moment in the whole story where I broke down and sobbed like a baby. It was in the beginning and I'm pretty sure you can tell by the reading the synopsis, but after that part was over, the story got much much better. It was more hopeful and happy. Jasinda Wilder did a fabulous job with bringing out the right emotions at the right time without them being an overkill. I loved Nell. I loved Kyle. I loved Colton. Kyle was special in Nell's life but she was, whole-heartedly meant to be with Colton. There were no doubts about that.

     Nell and Kyle have been best friends since they were born. They lived next to each other, did everything together and there was no doubt in anyone's mind that they would get married and grow old together. That changed when Kyle dies in an unfortunate accident leaving Nell alone and broken. She meets Colton, Kyle's older brother, for the first time on Kyle's funeral and sort of connects with him on the basis of mutual loss and unspoken understanding. I loved how beautifully the story was structured, it had a before and after feel to it along with the dual POV's that immensely helped me connect with Nell & Colton on a more deeper level and appreciate their relationship with being too judgmental. I never felt that they rushed into anything or got together too-soon, for me the timing made sense.

     The key element of Falling Into You is music. Music is what brought Nell & Colton together and music is what eventually healed them and made them express their dark moments in life. Colton was a surprise for me, I was stunned by his story. Colton had a hard time growing up, he left his house after graduation, moved to New York and never looked back. He's been through enough pain in his life that he gets Nell. He gets what she wants and doesn't wants. He gets that she needs to let go of the pain instead of bundling it up. He helps her through it and in turn, she helps him letting go of his past. They both healed each other and ended up falling in love. Besides all the moving-on part, this book was extremely hot. The graphic parts make me want to put it in adult category but hey, no shame here, I loved it. It was tastefully written and boy, I love a girl who calls herself slutty. Nell was one funny girl and her inner conflicts were my favorite parts to read.

     Overall, Falling Into You is a Must Read book. It'll break your heart and mend it again with Nell & Colton's journey. They have a special place in my heart, I'm not going to forget them anytime soon. I wish they had an epilogue together but I loved what I got. I highly recommend Falling Into You to all NA and romance readers. I would suggest you buy it and read it ASAP!

  3. That surprises me that you were emotional in the beginning, it must be really good then! Usually it takes awhile to get used to the characters and like them to feel for their situations! I like how it is about brothers, it sounds so good! Great review!

  5. I love the NA genre and I've only recently seen this one & it sounds amazing! I'm definitely eager to read it, especially after your wonderful praise. I was initially iffy about the heroine moving on after Kyles death to his brother but my mind is more at ease after reading she belonged whole heartedly with Colton.

    An awesome review Aman!
