*Can be read as a stand alone*
*No cliffhanger*
If you look up British in the dictionary…A-list celebrity Jamie Jaymeson’s name would be next to it. Along with charming, witty, man-whore, and a lot of other adjectives that he wouldn’t appreciate being attached to his name.
He has everything in the world going for him.
Until fate decides his number’s finally up.
Caught in a compromising position that really wasn’t his fault to begin with (really it wasn’t)—Jaymeson’s been told by his agent to lay low in the one town he swore he’d never return to—the seventh circle of hell, known by its residents as Seaside, Oregon.
Two months? He can do anything for two months. Especially if it means getting a part in the new book-to-movie series that has girls all over the world swooning.
Play nice? Keep it in his pants? Please. He played an alien once—he was going to totally rock it.
Until a certain someone who he may or may not have publicly humiliated—rejected, then humiliated again, suddenly pops up next door.
Self control has a way of flying out the window when the one girl you can’t have—is suddenly dangled right in front of you.
But Priscilla isn’t just off limits—she’s a pastor's daughter and barely legal to boot. So Jaymeson does the one thing he swore he’d never do—he tries to be friends. With a woman.
Only, it’s exactly what he needs.
Until suddenly, he craves more.
He wants to date her.
She wants to date someone else.
He wants to kiss her.
She asks him to give her lessons for her new boyfriend.
When opposites attract, sometimes the only option you have is to leap—and trust the fact that when you fall—that special someone falls too.

Rachel Van Dyken’s book Fall is #4 in her Seaside Series. I’m not quite sure what magical powers that woman possesses, but each book in this series gets better and better!! This is the story of man-whore, movie star Jamie Jaymeson, whom we first met in Shatter and pastor’s daughter Priscilla Garcia, whom we met in Forever. Jaymeson’s agent sends him to Seaside, Oregon to rehabilitate his reputation, the only problem is Seaside is Jaymeson’s idea of Hell! Wait! Did I say the only problem…there is one more! Priscilla! She is the one girl that Jaymeson can’t stop thinking about – but she’s a pastor’s daughter, barely legal and he just might have already rejected her and then publicly humiliated her! So what’s a reforming man-whore to do? Why propose they be friends of course! Except he wants more. I loved watching Jaymeson ‘fall’ in this book! It was also wonderful to see Alec, Nat, Demetri and Alyssa again. The friendship that the three boys have is heartwarming. This book had so many different elements to it: romance, laughter, tragedy, chemistry, family – all tied together into the perfect package. If you have read the Seaside novels I highly recommend this book. And if you haven’t, well then I suggest that you go catch up on this outstanding series AND then get this book! (I do feel that you can read this as a standalone - however, you will get much more out of the story if you have read the entire series.) I received an ARC of Fall from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I was provided an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. There is no other way to describe Jaymeson except to say that he is a male whore. He is forced to go on a "vacation" to Seaside, Oregon. While there, he's told to stay out of trouble, stay away from women and try to land the role of a lifetime - that of a boy falling in love for the first time. There is one problen with this situation, Priscilla is in Seaside. She is Alyssa's cousin and the one woman that can bring Jaymeson to his knees. Priscilla has tried hard to forget Jaymeson, but it seems that may be impossible. She even tries to go on dates with Smith, Evan's older brother. That just seems to blow up in her face as she keeps comparing him to Jaymeson. But, it also seems that Jaymeson is also everywhere that she goes. It seems that he is always there for her and they even agree to be friends. While reading "Forever", I actually began to like Jaymeson just a little bit. After finishing this book, I can honestly say that Jaymeson is my new book boyfriend. He may have gone about things the wrong way but his intentions were good. Everything that he did was to help and protect Priscilla. Seriously, he even called up Anglique to get her help in all of this. That took guts and swallowing a lot of his pride. The softer side of him when he was with Priscilla showed that he wasn't that bad of a person, he just had a lot to hide. I was thrown when it was revealed everything that he had been through growing up. Rachel has hit another homerun with "Fall" and I was blown away by this book. I enjoyed the reappearance of Alec, Demetri, Nat and Alyssa because they added the humor that was desperately needed at times. I'll even admit to starting to like Angelique, her personality in this book was not near as off putting as it was previously. It seems that with each book that Rachel writes I get more and more impressed with her writing. Her ideas and characters are so creative and I am so thrown by her imagination. Her words bring everything to life and it is so refrshing to read her books. I can't wait to read more of the Seaside series. Maybe Jaymeson and Priscilla can get their own novella? ;)

I have fallen for Fall...truly I fell in love with this story! Rachel Van Dyken has exceeded all of my expectations with this book! I love the Seaside Series but Fall is now my favorite one! I never thought I would find myself cheering on Jaymeson, I mean the guy is a royal jerk with the ladies. Demetri and Alex swore that he would fall and boy did he fall hard! I love the way that he was constantly keeping tabs (albeit in a strange fashion) on Pris, making sure she was okay. Also that he was willing to change himself for the better....that says it all. He really cared and loved her. Pris' character was so wholesome and vibrant! She was funny and full of life, the reader can't help but want what is best for her! I never saw what was coming towards the end of the book, and the emotion is so strong that the reader will be feeling it right along with the characters! ( I would specify but I despise spoilers). This is a fantastic addition to the Seaside Series and I still want more of these characters! Please write more, I am not ready to leave Seaside, AD2 and Jaymeson behind just yet. That is the mark of a true great author, when the fans cannot get enough of the world they have created. That is exactly what Van Dyken has done with the Seaside Series! I received a copy of this book for free, this is my honest review

I am a HUGE Seaside and Rachel Van Dyken fan, and Rachel did not disappoint with this book!! Fall is the 5th installment in the Seaside Series, and this is Jayemson and Priscilla's story. Jaymeson is the best friend/ half brother of Demetri and Alec. He is the hottest star in Hollywood, and he is also quite the player. Priscilla is Alyssa's cousin and was one of the Bridesmaids in Nat and Alec's wedding. She also happens to be the 18 year old daughter of a Pastor. Jaymeson is used to getting all of the attention and people swooning after him, everyone but Priscilla that is. She is the only one to treat him as a normal person. She is not afraid to tell him when he's being a jerk or just to put him in his place. It's been several months since the wedding, and he can't get his mind off of Priscilla. He treated her so badly, was cruel and rejected her. That was the most humiliating experience in her entire life, and she has tried to so hard to get her mind off of him too. Jaymeson's agent sent him to Seaside Oregon aka Hell for 2 months for a "vacation". During this time he was to prove that he is worthy of a role in an upcoming movie. This meant that he was to help out around the community and show that he was a good person instead of the new British bad boy. Fate had something special planned for these two, and kept bringing them together. Is Jaymeson capable of change or will he always be the bad boy? Can Priscilla find it in her heart to forgive him? This book spoke to me on such a personal level. I laughed, I cried, I was happy and I was sad. Fall is my favorite in the entire series and that says a lot! Rachel has such a wonderful way of bringing the charming town of Seaside Oregon to life. I know that if I were to visit there, I would be looking for one of the characters to turn the corner. I was given the great honor of receiving an ARC of this book for my honest opinion. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE!! If you haven't read any of the Seaside series, you should, you won't regret it. This should be your MUST read series of the year!

I recieved an ARC of this bookAshley Gn honest review. Fall is # 4 from the Seaside Series. I knew I would love the book before I even read it! Rachel's other books are amazing!! Priscilla is a pastors daughter, shes sweet and very strong to have delt with the things she has.  Jaymeson is a british actor, he's charming, a manwhore, & gets what he wants!  This book will have all your emotions on high alert. I laughed...I cried...I was mad....and I'm not going to lie I swooned! :) Will Priscilla find it in her heart to forgive him? Is Jaymeson capable of change or will he always be a man-whore? Make sure you find out! You won't be disappointed!  I HIGHLY recommend this book! Ashley G

The funniest and sweetest Rachel Van Dyken novel to date. She is opening your 2014 with lots of tummy aching because you will laugh on the majority of the story. Laughed, swooned, heartbroken, swooned, laughed and tear up--- my rollercoaster of feelings throughout the whole story. Rachel has poured all her funny bones in Fall.  Jaymeson, with the combination of AD2, is one the best set of characters ever made. Rachel used the British card on me. Come on! Who can resist a British accent? Jaymeson is the fictional Prince William. All the sweetness in the world will be found in his character. After reading this, I swore to find myself a living Jaymeson. Every girl can relate to Pris. Because admit it, we've been all rejected once or twice by the same guy once in our lives. I also found here more relatable being an ordinary young girl with dreams.  I also loved that Rachel didn't make this an entirely Jaymeson-Pris story. We've got to see the funniest side of Demetri and Alec too. I loved them more and I am hoping that Seaside series will never come to an end.  Rachel Van Dyken had showcased her great talent yet again to write the most beautiful words all girls would swoon to. She excellently planned Jaymeson's FALL.

Rachel you did it again! Love the Seaside Series! The next in the series "FALL" is about a famous "Brit" actor Jaymeson who meets small town girl, Prisiclla who happens to be the pastor's daughter. Jaymeson believing he is not worth loving forces Pris into the arms of another only to realize she is the "ONE". When tragedy strikes her family, Jaymeson steps up and becomes a good hearted man they never knew existed and in the end finds "I'd finally fallen and in my landing I'd found my security--my home." Another great one from Rachel Van Dyken. She always leaves you wanted MORE! peggy h
