Overview

(New Adult Fiction)
Dana is definitely not the kind of girl to be living in the dump of a wilderness lodge she finds herself waitressing in. But when Craig, the sexy cop who’s handling the murder case where she’s a witness, suggests it—it seems like a good idea. Now she’s got no BMW, no shopping and an assortment of hairy Alaskan men who definitely belong in a run-down old lodge. Her exciting visits from Craig are getting less exciting, and the lodge owner, Jason, is quickly moving from grouchy and judgmental, to funny, smart and unexpectedly complex.

Jason knows exactly the type of girl Dana is—beautiful, spoiled, and high maintenance. She’s everything that hurt him in the past, and why he now lives as far away from city life as he can manage. If he wasn’t so hard-up for help, he would have never said yes to his friend, Craig. Despite his reservations, Dana becomes the perfect antidote to everything in his life—both his disaster of a divorce and precocious little sister who shows up on his doorstep. Jason realizes he’s falling for Dana too late to stop it, or even slow it down.

As the trial approaches, Dana knows it’s time to move on with her life—but is her life back in the city she left or with a guy she never meant to fall for?

    Not that good

    Im in the middle of this book right now and even though i will finish it i have to tell other readers that this story is poorly writen with awkward sentences that i have to read several times just to understand. It also has grammatical errors that should have been caught through editting. I also dont even like the main character who an affair with a married man and is now making moves on his cousin. I really would not recommend this book.

    ***Review copy received by Author for review purposes*** ¿I fee

    ***Review copy received by Author for review purposes***

    “I feel like I’m letting go of the edge of a cliff.” My voice shakes a little because I know I’ve never felt this way for anyone before. And because I know I’m walking into what may end up being a ridiculous situation, but I also know I can’t just walk away.
    “Is that where we are?” Jason whispers.
    I lean forward and press our lips together. “Not anymore. Now I’m falling.”

    The story starts off with Dana on her way to a party. She is lost in the deserted Alaskan roads when she witnesses a murder. Even worse, the murderer causes her to crash her car. But sexy cop Craig comes to her rescue. He takes her to the hospital and flirts with her and pretty soon they end up hooking up. No matter how many times I read the book summary, I always get a little hazy once I actually start reading the book. I was getting worried about Craig being the main love interest because…well, he’s really a slimy guy. He tells Dana that his marriage is over even though it is NOT. (She doesn’t find out until later) When family members of the murderer start showing up at her work and following her, Craig suggest she stay at his friend Jason’s secluded lodge. Friend is a strong word…frenemy is more like it.

    When Dana shows up at the lodge, Jason immediately dislikes her. She reminds him way too much of his ex-wife and he is determined to find reasons to hate her. Plus, he thinks that she is knowingly having an affair with Craig who is married to Jason’s cousin. Needless to say, things get off to a rocky start between these two. Jason is distant and rude to Dana at first, but he soon realizes that she might not be as bad as he thought. Very slowly, they start to open up to each other and they even learn to get along. When her fling with Craig dies out, Jason is suddenly out of reasons to pretend to hate her and they try their best to deny their growing attraction to each other or their sizzling chemistry. But they both know that there is no point in starting anything between them because she is leaving as soon as the trial is over, and he has no plans on leaving his lodge.

    Ah, this is my favorite type of romance! The kind that causes you to get flutters in your stomach and makes your fingertips tingle. You know, not the insta-love kind where they lock eyes and “OMG I love you and would do anything for you”. Nope, you won’t find any of that here. This has that perfect “I don’t really like you but I’m kind of attracted to you so I’m just going to pretend I hate you” kind of thing going on. Jolene wrote this romance perfectly! It’s slow paced but with a build up that is oh-so delicious and you just know that will make it all worth it in the end. Although they had many obstacles, their love was also in a way effortless. And the sexual tension between them was HOT! I was so relieved when I found out that Jason was the real love interest because he is so swoon worthy! First of all, he is a writer. He also happens to be hot and sweet and romantic and takes care of the people he loves. I was also pleasantly surprised that we get Jason’s POV chapters too. Dana is a little bit of a mess. She doesn’t know what she wants out of life other than the fact that she is desperately seeking her dad and brother’s approval. She second guesses every action and feeling and makes mistakes. Despite her flaws, she was a very realistic 20-something year old girl and I really liked her once I got to see her real side.

    I love Indies. I love New Adult books. Books like this are the perfect example of why I love these kinds of books so much and why I simply can’t get enough of them! And isn't this cover just gorgeous? I LOVE it!

    4.5 out of 5 stars!

    Some of my favorite non-spoiler quotes from Falling:
    -I stand still, afraid to move. Afraid he’ll touch me more. Afraid he won’t.

    -“No one’s here to see you flirting with me right now.” I tilt my head so I can look up at her.
    “Nope.” She smiles. “Just you.” Does she mean she wants me to know she’s flirting with me?

    -I'm not sure who moves first, but our lips come together. Everywhere Craig was confident and hungry, Jason is slow and deliberate. Every fiber of me is quaking at wanting more of him than he's giving. His lips brush against mine again, slightly parted this time, and when his tongue lightly teases my lower lip I let out a soft moan, which is a sure sign that I'm no longer in control of what my body wants.

    -I think we both know you can’t feel this much and just walk away the next day, but I don’t know that I care. She feels too good.

    -I bump his arm with my elbow, and then a small part of me wants him to stop and breathe in my hair like he does, and clasp our hands together, because I want it, but it all means too much, so I don’t want it.

    -I’m being pulled between liking him way more than I should, and hating how much I like him.

    Ehh...

    This book was definitely poorly written. It had such amazing potential to be a good story but it lacked so much detail and nothing really interesting happened.

    Poorly written

    This book is so poorly written that I began skimming and then just decided to give up. It's just not worth the time and effort. The plot is poor. The dialog difficult to understand.

    This book was good, but it was not great. I liked it but it isn't a favourite. It is still worth reading though.

    I like the main character of this book, and I love reading about

    I like the main character of this book, and I love reading about Alaskan adventures (being an AK adventurer myself). Moving off to the Last Frontier, finding a whole new part of herself. The book is a decent read, ALOT of grammatical/spelling errors which I cannot stand in a book, especially one I have to pay for. The book does suck you in a little, but I feel like it could have had more to it overall - it had more potential. I would have liked some more AK adventure thrown in... they are up in a lodge surrounded by cabins, afterall!
