Overview

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.

    My thoughts…

    Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I loved this book. At first I was a little worried that this book wouldn't live up to the first book. Sometimes that happens. The more I read though, the more I learned that Falling Into Us is just as amazing as book one.

    The story is told from both Jason & Becca's POV. Both are secondary characters in the first book entitled Falling Into You. I loved getting to know both of them. 

    My heart broke for Jason and the life he was subjected to at the hands of his father. He seemed like such a great kid in the first part of the book who went on to grow into a great young man. One who stood by Becca's side throughout the story and always loved and protected her.

    Becca. I really liked her. Her parents were very strict with her. She wasn't allowed much free time for herself. Everything was centered on her school work and achieving her academic goals. Her father was very controlling and I really didn't care for him. 

    This story is highly emotional. You get to experience what it was like for Becca & Jason to fall in love, how they had deal with the loss of a beloved friend, and grow into two amazing young adults.

    The sexual scenes started out sweet, gentle and loving. Both Becca & Jason were under the age of 18 when they first started having sex and I think the scenes needed to be written the way they were. Later on though…Hot, Hot, Hot. Explicit. Ripping each others clothes off and going at it again and again. Just what you'd expect a young couple to do.

    Falling Into Us offers a twist within the story. One that I did not so coming and it totally shocked me, but I understand why it was added. It was an integral part of the story.

    Overall, I can't say enough good things about this two book series. I don't think Ms Wilder could have ended things any better than the way she did. I'm very pleased with the outcome and how thing worked out for Becca, Jason as well as Nell & Colton. 

    I will definitely be reading this series again in the future. If you haven't given this one a try you don't know what you're missing. There's a reason book one hit the NY Times bestsellers list. I have a feeling Falling Into Us will become a bestseller as well. Again, these books are truly amazing.

    Well done, Ms Wilder. You've made a fan for life.

    Accomplished author Jasinda Wilder, I am once again in awe. Fall

    Accomplished author Jasinda Wilder, I am once again in awe. Falling Into Us was magnificent. 
    Jasinda Wilder is one of those uniquely talented authors who fills her novels with relevant, thought-provoking and heart wrenching plot; resulting in captivating reading and a completely riveting story. Every time. 
    One boy, Kyle Calloway, died, far too young. As is always the case, death and grief is experienced differently for each person it meets. Falling Into Us focused on the altered life path of Jason Dorsey, Kyle's best friend, and Becca de Rosa, the beautiful, intelligent and quiet counterpart to bubbly, popular Nell. One of the saddest parts to this story, was being once again confronted with the agonising, self-destructive path Nell traveled, and the impact that had on those who loved her. 
    Jason Dorsey, was one of those characters who grabs your heart from the first chapter and never lets go. He should have been cocky, but he wasn't. Any hint of self-love had been beaten out of him; he wasn't a party boy, not the stereotypical football player who squandered drink and women. No, this boy was broken. This boy was talented. Driven, almost morosely so. Could it be possible that the gorgeous girl, who had somehow hidden her vivacity behind her reserved facade, could be his loudest supporter, his lifelong soulmate? 
    Becca:"I think I wrote poetry because its a way for me to be coherent. Eloquent. I have to work to speak clearly. Every single sentence I speak takes effort not to stutter. Poetry? It's just Effortless."Becca had style. She was clever, passionate and raw. I loved her. Her faithful, gentle heart, was to endure difficult heartaches in Falling Into Us, and given the number of years the story thankfully encompassed, you will watch her grow, mature and thrive. She needed to break free from the oppressive parental shackles that held her captive, in more ways than one. She needed to identify what defined her, and what did not.
    Showing incredible sensitivity, Wilder walked the reader through some heartbreaking years, touching on difficult topics; adding humor for levity when needed and sweet and sexy lovemaking for sensory delight. 
    I loved the awkwardness between sixteen year old Kyle and Jason. Just perfect. So real. The poems. MAGIC! They expressed so much. So touching, poignant and ingeniously placed. The scene in Circle Bar had me instantly crying. Reading through Kyle's death and Nell's heartache again just ripped me apart. Such is the strength of Jasinda Wilder's writing. 
    Written in first person, present tense with shifting POV, with a fabulous 522 pages in length, the book was so satisfying. I felt that the whole story was told. This was an excellent parallel novel to Falling Into You, and a book I will recommend to many. 
    Grab your tissues, close yourself off from the world, and brace yourself for this impressive and emotional journey, told with thoughtful insight, clever prose and scintillating love scenes.
    Thank you Jasinda Wilder for the privilege of reading this ARC in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received for this review.

    Wow!

    I love this book! I enjoyed the first book, but loved this one. I cannot say how much I love Jason!!! He was one of those perfect heros you dream about for your daughters. If you read the first book you MUST read this and if you didn't read the first read it anyway. ENJOY!

    Becca and Jason's relationship was touched on in Falling in to you by Jasinda Wilder. But is brought to life in this book. I was loved Falling in to you, and was ready to tear into Falling into us. Becca and Jason seem to have it all to anyone looking in on them. They are both smart and talented teens, but I must tell you I didn't expect a lot of what happens to this beautiful young couple to happen and most of it was very unfortunate. Jason is an all star football player with an incredible record but nothing is good enough for his abusive father. Becca is brilliant and beautiful but has a continued stutter that she has struggled her entire life with, she also has incredibly overbearing parents who don't want her to do much of anything. Despite everything their relationship flourished and when they go off to college things only get better, for a while. Tragedy strikes again leaving Becca devastated in a deep depression. Jason can only take her depression for so long before he steps in an makes her realize that she can't do what she is doing. I cried so much throughout this book but I absolutely loved every word. Even though it was very emotion and intense Jasinda still managed to make it HOT, and made it blend in. It is such a great book I recommend you read it!! You will love it!! If you haven't read Falling in to you, you can start off with this book and it wouldn't completely ruin Falling into us, but I suggest you read them in order because Nell and Colton's story is followed up in this one and I loved that Jasinda melded these stories because I was wondering what happened with Nell.

    I loved the characters and the real subjects in the story.  The story flowed well and it keeps you wanting to read until you are done.  You cry with them and want to hug them like they are your BFFs. The story will stay with you for a long time. 

    I can't wait for the next part for more ongoing love and romance.  I am waiting patiently. 

    It is a great beach read.

    Another amazing book!!! These books are filled with life and the things that happen that we dont talk about because in society
    these things are not accepted,we try so hard to fit a image of something we are suppose to be and we're not. This book was beautifully
    written! I am not going to lie I was a little sad that it wasn't another book on Nell and Colt. I cried through out this book and was filled
     with emotions.

    This is a companion book to Falling Into You, although it can be read alone. This is the story of Jason and Becca, best friends to Kyle and Nell from Falling Into You. This story happens during the same time frame as the first book, so you get parts of Nell's story from Becca and Jason's point of view.

    I loved Jason and Becca's story more than that of Nell and Colton. I loved the devotion they felt for each other, even as teenagers. I loved the way they supported each other through everything...and they went through a heck of a lot. This was just a sweet love story to me. I bought it hook, line, and sinker. It is sad in places, but overall, it didn't leave me depressed the way Nell's story did. I highly recommend this one.

    Absolutely amazing!

    This book and Falling Into You are must reads. I cried so much. Everything seemed so real. I think we all know what it feels like to lose someone we love dearly. If you haven't yet, buy these books and read them. You won't regret it.
