When Kyle Calloway died, he took a part of Nell with him. She wasn’t the only one left to pick up the pieces, however; Kyle’s death left a gaping hole in the hearts and lives of his parents and his older brother Colton, and ultimately broke the will of the girl he loved.
THE STORY YOU NEVER IMAGINED…
Becca de Rosa is Nell’s best friend. When Kyle died, Nell was so devastated that no one could reach her, not even her best friend Becca. As she tries to help Nell through her grief, Becca’s own life is thrust into turmoil, and everything she knows is changed.
Jason Dorsey asked Nell out the week after her sixteenth birthday, but that date never happened. Instead, he ended up going out with Nell’s best friend, Becca. He had no way of knowing, then, how that one date would send him on a life-long journey with Becca. He had no way of knowing the tragedies and triumphs he would experience, or that in Becca, he might find the love of a lifetime.
THE HEARTACHE YOU’LL NEVER FORGET…
Let’s be honest- I was LUCKY enough to be the reviewer on my blog because I had read Falling into you. I was scared when I realized this was a side by side novel and NOT Colt and Nell’s story but her BFF Becca and Kyle’s BFF Jason..
I had NO reason to be nervous.. To say this book was amazing is an understatement. I felt every word, every emotion, every single chapter. I was sucked in from chapter one.
It starts at the point of Nell ditching Jason’s date because Kyle really “liked” her- we knew that from Book 1.. This goes into him asking Becca out and their budding relationship. I *almost* loved them more than Kyle and Nell.. But I can’t love anyone more than COLT. BUT Becca and Jason- ARE HAWT. STEAMY. AND I AM STILL FANNING MYSELF. WOW.
Becca- The unknowingly beautiful smart girl who has loved Jason since they were in 4th grade will show you a side of her you have no idea exists and Jason Dorsey- is an amazing man. What he grew up with could have ruined who he was but instead- it drove him to greatness. That is a lesson for all of us.
You get 8 years of their life.. And THANK YOU JASINDA WILDER for giving me more Colt and Nell. I needed them. I had to know they were ok and where they went with their story.
There is parts of this book that absolutely SHREDDED my heart. I cried 3 seperate times- for 3 seperate situations. And those 3 – HURT. Reliving Kyle’s accident hurt just as bad the second time from a different POV but it also gave you some closure on “why bad things happen to good people” scenario. Sometimes life has really really terrible situations .. But if those didn’t happen – you wouldn’t end up where you are or even who you are.
I gave this book 5 HUGE stars. It was LONG (and I am not complaining) – it left me completely fulfilled with all the storylines and I was ok to be done with them. That’s a great feeling and honestly RARELY happens.
Thank you Jasinda for yet another A-mazing story that touched my heart and showed me a honest never ending TRUE love.
