BookWhisperer Rating:

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.

So, I have made this a Wilder adventure. We just finished Stripped, so I moved on to Falling Into You. Now this book has me so very conflicted. From the start I was so excited with each building moment of the story. Kyle and Nell are wonderful. Everything about them seems perfect. At 20 percent of the story everything falls apart. Now, I knew at this moment that we have two paths the remainder of this story can take. One, new characters will create a story that will make perfection look like something mediocre. Or two, the beginning of this story was created so wonderfully that no other character would be able to match up. Never did I think there would be a third option that would show me a little of both. Colton is wonderful to say the least. Everything about him was Kyle and more, but I the remainder of this story did give me very abrupt moments of pause. When I say moments of pause, this is times where I sit back in my chair thinking "did that really just happen?". I almost felt like Wilder was trying so hard to make this character MORE; that she might have went just a tad bit too far. There are many different characteristic that create the many loved alpha males; as the story continued I felt that she tried to combine way to may into an unrealistic character. This is a terrible heartbreaking story about love, loss, and overcoming the odds. Overall, my best position to take on this novel would be to say that I am ON THE FENCE. I don't dislike it, but I can't say that I love it either. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~
