Overview

Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as "over him" as she thought-and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.

After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.

Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.

But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.

Heather Thurmeier's voice is distinctively witty, lough-out-loud funny, and sexy. Falling for You is the perfect romance novel for anyone who's ever found herself addicted to reality TV shows like The Bachelor... Cassidy is ready to find love with the bachelor on the show, until he turns out to be her ex (uh-oh) and then the camera-man assigned to follow her around and film her is too lust-worthy to try and pretend he's not there. I loved getting an inside look at what goes on behind-the-scenes on a reality show...Ms. Thurmeier shows us exactly what ends up on the cutting room floor -- forbidden romance, anyone? Yes, please! 5 stars and highly recommended -- Heather Thurmeier's contemporary romances are an auto-buy for me.

Heather Thurmier really brings the romance home in this novel. I won't admit this publicly, but I'm a reality show junkie and Heather's book strikes a chord with me. Anyone who loves romance in the modern era will fall for this novel. Can't wait to see what she brings next to my library.

Don’t you wish you knew what really went on behind-the-scenes of reality TV? Heather Thurmeier gives us a close-up in her rollicking new romance Falling for You. I identified immediately with Cassidy, who is almost as accident prone as I am. Despite being one of the beautiful ‘babes’ picked to appear on an online dating show, Cassidy is down-to-earth, charming, and always falling right into trouble. . . or the strong arms of her totally off-limits cameraman. Ms. Thurmeier kept the sexual and emotional tension high as Cassidy and Evan try to play by the rules and deny their attraction. Who will be the big winner of ‘The One?’ I didn’t know how this love triangle in the spotlight was going to play out until the very end. You’ll find lots of laughs and lots of on and off-screen action in this fun ‘reality’ romance! Note: I was lucky enough to receive a free advance copy of this book as a professional courtesy.

Imagine finding yourself on a dating reality TV show and the Bachelor you’re supposed to fall in love with is the guy who trampled on your heart a few months ago. That’s exactly the situation Cassidy Quinn finds herself in. Her sister generously submitted Cassidy’s name to the producers and Cassidy gets chosen to be on the show. After having her heart so recently trampled on, she’s looking for adventure not true love. That is until she turns around and finds herself falling into the deep blue eyes of one of the cameramen employed to follow their every move. Unfortunately fraternizing with the production crew is a big no-no. Evan Burke looks at life through the camera lens, going from job to job having the odd fling as he goes. After seeing the pain his brother has experienced at the loss of his wife, Evan is determined to keep his heart locked away so he doesn’t suffer the same loss. What he didn’t expect to find his first day on the job was Cassidy – a woman who would end up testing his resolve to remain a carefree bachelor. “Falling for You” is Heather Thurmeier’s first in a trilogy of reality show stories with Crimson Romance. It’s an enjoyable, well-written, fast paced read which has you laughing at Cassidy as she stumbles through the challenges presented to her on the show. Rolling your eyes at the catty Zoe as she tries to undermine Cassidy. Finally sighing at the sweet scenes that Evan and Cassidy share. I highly recommend this book if you’re a fan of romance and reality shows.

This is the first book in the Reality TV Trilogy and the first book I’ve read by Heather Thurmeier. I must admit that I have mixed feelings regarding this book. I liked it up until the end. I get Evan and I completely adore him. Cassidy is a toss up. Sometimes I like her and feel for her, other times, I can’t stand her and just wish she would go away. But she’s the heroine of the book so she can’t do that. Brad, Cassidy’s ex-boyfriend is an ALL around jerk, to put it mildly. Cassidy has no intention on appearing on a reality tv dating show. Her older sister Keira filled out all the paperwork and initially submitted it without Cassidy knowing about it. After Cassidy found out of course, she was furious, but once she got accepted to appear on the show, she looked at it as her chance to have an adventure. Cassidy and Evan are the first to meet and the attraction is immediate. Cassidy thinks that if the cameraman is that hot, the bachelor has to be off the charts. Evan for his part is attracted to Cassidy, but knows that he is bound by his work contract that he can not engage in any type of relationship with her. Evan is strictly there to work and make money. When Cassidy suddenly comes face to face with Brad during her first challenge, you would think that she would have the good sense to say, “okay this can’t happen” and ask to leave the show. But for whatever unimaginable reason, she doesn’t. One of the things I love about Cassidy is that she’s a klutz. I’m not laughing at her, I’m laughing with her. Okay, so she’s not really laughing because she’s getting embarrassed on national tv, but she handles it really well. Cassidy’s klutziness is also one of the reasons Evan falls for her even though doing so goes against his personal wishes and professional obligations. While their chemistry is hot, they have to keep their attraction and relationship a secret so that they don’t get stuck with a crazy lawsuit for breaching their contracts with show. What I didn’t like about the book was the way their secret relationship came out. I think it could have come out a little better than it did. I also didn’t care for the Epilogue. While it sets up the next book in the series, I wish it would have told more of the story of what happened to Cassidy and Evan after the show was over.

Falling for You by Heather Thurmeier This story follows Cassidy whose sister entered her into a reality 'the one' tv show where she might find her one man. It also follows Evan, her personal cameraman for the show. They each find attracted to one another and that's forbidden in the show. Cassidy learns that her ex boyfriend is 'the one' for this show... Even listens to how Brad wants to select 3 to leave, one potentially being Cassidy and why and that upsets Evan. She befriends a few women and they form opinions on who to stay away from as they watch the others. She is enjoying the challenges and can picture Evan in place of Brad... He finds it very hard to not touch her... Hot sex adds to this story... I especially liked the hiking challenge as I also hike and enjoy it. Things don't go as planned and maybe it's for the best... Excerpt from Paige's story in Stuck on You is included.

Are you a fan of Reality TV shows? Are you addicted to the dating reality shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette? If you are a fan (even if you are a secret closet fan ... shhh ... I won't tell anyone!), then author Heather Thurmeier's first book in the Reality TV Trilogy, Falling for You is a must read! It has been six months since twenty-eight year old New York banquet manager Cassidy Quinn's ex-boyfriend Brad trampled her heart and left New York for California. So when her meddling little sister Keira signed her up to be a contestant on the new reality dating show, The One, she was ready for a new adventure. Cassidy may have been ready to find love, but she didn't count on the Bachelor being her ex-boyfriend Brad! And if that isn't bad enough, Cassidy is attracted to her personal cameraman, Evan Burke, who is professionally off-limits. Evan has witnessed his brother tragically losing his wife, and has vowed never to fall in love. But when he sees Cassidy, the attraction is mutual even though he tries to resist her charms. Evan and Cassidy engage in a forbidden behind the scenes affair, but things get complicated when Brad throws his hat in the ring and tries to win back Cassidy's heart. What's a girl to do when she's falling in love and has two men vying for her attention? Falling for You is a sassy behind the scenes look into the Reality TV dating shows. Written in the third person narrative, author Heather Thurmeier weaves a humorous tale of finding love on a Reality TV dating show with a mixture of drama, showmance and enough twists and turns that keeps the reader thoroughly entertained. This fast-paced story will keep you in stitches as Cassidy stumbles her way through the challenges on and off the show in order to find her Mr. Right. If you are a fan of reality dating shows, this story will simply draw you in just like the TV shows do! The author transports the reader into the world of reality dating shows with an eclectic cast of characters who are realistic, flawed and just plain fun to get to know. Cassidy is a down-to-earth, klutzy but lovable girl who you can't help but embrace. Try stepping into her shoes and see how hard it is to decide which man you would choose to give your heart to! Evan is simply irresistible, emotional baggage and all! This hunky man had my vote, it was so much fun following how their attraction unfolds behind the scenes. Then there is Cassidy's ex-boyfriend and Bachelor, Brad. I was not a fan of this guy, he's a player that really isn't into finding true love, and I found myself frowning at his feeble attempts to win back Cassidy's heart. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the catty contestant Zoe. You know that every reality dating show has one (or more) of these types of women as a contestant, and I have to admit that I was thoroughly entertained by her antics. With a great cast of characters; quirky dialogue and interactions; and an entertaining romantic comedy storyline, Falling for You is one heck of fun read that will leave you satisfied! Falling for You is the first book in the Reality TV Trilogy. This story will draw you and get you hooked on the drama just like the reality TV dating shows do. It will also keep you in suspense waiting to see what will happen in the next two books in the series!

I love reality shows and I loved Falling For You! I couldn't put the book down and found myself sneaking time to read it, even on a 10 minute drive in the car while my husband was driving. I loved the development of the characters. Heather's development of them had me wanting to be friends with Cassidy and punch Zoe in the face. I know a book is good when it brings about my emotions. I highly recommend this fun, romantic, page turning novel and I can't wait for the next one. In the meantime I will just have to reread Heather Thurmeier's other books!

Two words describe Heather Thurmeier’s latest book: Fun and Sexy. I have to admit I am not a reality show fan and my bookshelf mainly holds Romantic Suspense – but I couldn’t help but love Cassidy! Cute, fallible and totally relatable, I want to invite Cassidy over for drinks at my house. She is thoroughly entertaining. This book is a quick read and I can’t wait for the remaining books in Heather’s trilogy – she will make a Chick Lit reader out of me yet!
