Rating: A Whole Bottle of Wine
THE STORY YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW...
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
I'm sure most of you remember my "sobbing on the treadmill review" of Falling Into You. I lurved that book. For goodness sake, Colton made my list of Top 10 Sexiest Men in Books. So when I saw that Falling Into Us was not another book about Nell and Colton, I was pissed! A book all about Jason and Becca? They weren't even all that interesting in the first book.
Okay okay, so I only walked away long enough to pour an extremely large glass of wine. I was going to need it in order to get through that chapter. Surprisingly enough, Kyle's death didn't destroy me in this book. Maybe it's because I knew what was coming, or maybe because Jason and Becca were so far removed from the actual incident. I have no idea. But I managed to keep from shedding a single tear. I wish I could say the same thing for the rest of the book. But nope! Later events once again drove me to ugly tears and gut wrenching sobs. And it was AMAZEBALLS!
"I can’t promise you forever, because that’s not long enough."
"I’ll support whatever you decide. I’ll help you any way I can. What’s mine is yours, okay? If you need something, I’ll make sure you have it, however I have to get it."
(And I'm talking Taylor Lautner, not Jacob Black)
No fear though ladies, if a Colton and Nell fix is what you are looking for Falling Into Us gives you that too.
