BookWhisperer Rating:

After a lifetime of uncertainty, Raine Winston shouldn’t be fazed by anything anymore. But she’s terrified. Terrified that her wayward sister, Claire, has gotten into debt dangerously over her head. Terrified that a muscle-clad biker named Diego doesn’t want payment with money—he wants much more. And terrified of the dizzying desire she feels whenever Diego touches her…

Diego Montesalto spends his days raising hell and his nights in the arms of fast, easy women. Tough, tattooed, and used to taking what he wants, he refuses to get emotionally invested in anyone. But he can’t stop thinking about Raine’s sweet smell, striking blue eyes, and quiet determination. She may have the spirit of a warrior, but she needs someone to guide and protect her.

When Raine has no choice but to go on the run, she falls straight into the Hells Saints’ mayhem-filled world…and into Diego’s strong arms. But in a life filled with hard choices, raw lust, and blood-soaked violence, is there room for loyalty…or love?

I put my hand in his and my head on his shoulder."Prospers?" "Yes, Little Darlin?" "I've run clear out of brave," I whispererd. "Just so happens I got some brave saved up just for you, Raine," he said against my hair. More silence. "So, Prosper?" I dropped my chin to his shoulder. "Yes, Little Darlin'?" His voice shaky now. "You got this?" My voice shaky now too. "I got this." (Falling Raine Chapter 16) 

Raine Falling is by far my favorite of all the MC novels I have had the pleasure of reading. I was captivated first and for most by the love and devotion between Prosper and Raine. At every single dark turn he rides out of the darkness and sweeps up both Raine and Claire. I was immediately in love with his character, and the Fatherly role that he plays throughout this entire story. On the other hand, I was not so much feeling the love for Diego's character in the beginning. The instant attraction slowed my pace at first, and gave me a bit of the creeper feeling Diego. Although, once Raine returns to Prosper for safety that romance seems to halt a bit. The transition in the story gave the much needed time for detail to grow. Without this change in pace there would have been no possible way for such an incredible romance between these two characters. There are so many powerful relations in this story it is an emotional ride from start to finish. The dedication and deep connections that so many of the characters build throughout this story offer a strong sense of loyalty and devotion. Marinaro is an extremely talented author, and everything about this story line displays her ability and creative nature. I would definitely go so far as to say that Raine Falling was one of the best reads of the year. There is not a minute of this story that readers will not feel and crave. I can not say enough wonderful things about the story that I just read. I can not wait for more from this author, and this series.
