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.

Falling Into You is a very emotional read. I spent the first part of the book learning about Kyle and Nell. I saw them when their friendship turned into something more and in a split second Kyle was gone. It was heartbreaking and hard for Nell to get through. Colton tried to help in the aftermath, supporting Nell and helped her to unwind, before he left to head back to New York. Two years later they cross paths again and Colton can still see the sadness in Nell. She hadn’t dealt with her loss properly and he wants to help her. They become close and they both face demons from their pasts together.

Nell was a sweet girl, but I could see that she was struggling in life. She found ways to cope, but not all of them were healthy for her. When Colton came into her life he helped her face her issues instead of burying them.

Colton had regrets from his past too. It wasn’t an easy path for him to get to where he was. His history slowly unravelled and I could see that there was more to him than the rebellious teenager that he was. He grew up after a rough start on his own and found his way.

I loved seeing Nell and Colton together. They both used music as an outlet and for Colton it helped him express his feelings. They both grew together and faced some hard times that shattered my heart, but made them stronger together.

I enjoyed every moment of reading Falling Into You. Some hard issues were faced and the characters learned new ways to deal with it together. Listening to the book was splendid too. Both Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve gave great voice to both Colton and Nell, and I think they made me more emotionally attached to the story. Jasinda Wilder wove the story perfectly… allowing me to connect to the characters and hoping desperately that they would find happiness together. I will definitely read more in this series, because this book is going to stay with me for a long time!

Nell and Colton struggle with their feelings for one another. Colton is protective of her, but doesn't really understand why, and his curiosity wins out here...

She feels my presence, twists her neck to glare at me.
“Well you’re an asshole.”
“Should’ve closed your door.”
“I told you to leave.” She reaches into a drawer and unfolds a pair of jeans, steps into them.
Watching a girl dress is almost as hot as watching her strip.
“But I didn’t, and you knew it.”
