From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby comes the third romance in the Love Under the Big Sky series, featuring a veteran struggling with PTSD and the one woman who can help him recover—and learn to love again.

Jillian thought she was a city girl through and through; the fast cars, high fashion, and glamour—she loves it all. But when her ex tells her he’s having a baby with his new wife (after Jillian struggled for years to get pregnant), she hightails it back to Montana to cry on the shoulder of her best friend, Cara.

But in truth, Jillian would rather be comforted by someone else…specifically Zack, Cara’s brother-in-law. Zack is a veteran of the Iraq War who came back to the family ranch to raise his preteen son after the boy’s mother took off. He’s struggling to re-establish a relationship with his son, and warding off the demons of PTSD, which still haunt him. The last thing he needs is bold, brassy Jillian…but why can’t he keep his hands off her?

This book was fantastic! Definitely my favorite of this series so far! Both Zack and Jillian are too afraid to drag the other one down with them, thinking that no one should have to take on that much baggage, and yet they are perfect for each other.  I could see myself in Jillian and so this story was even more powerful for me.  I loved their interaction and fell hard for Zack.  I HIGHLY recommend this book! Cannot WAIT for Casey's story!!

As I read Falling for Jillian, I became very quickly attached to the main characters, Zach and Jillian. There was such a wonderful rapport between them, and I loved them together. Zach's son, Seth, and his puppy added to the book, and Jill was great with them. There were some wonderful scenes between all of them, and there was such affection and ease between them that I was very touched. I knew things would go wrong at some point, but when they did, although the reason was one I expected, things went much worse than I had figured. I was very sad for all of them during this part, but I was ultimately very satisfied at the way everything worked out. I throughly enjoyed seeing the characters from the previous books in the series. This is one I would highly recommend.

## Holy crap, this book was EXTRAORDINARY. I loved it from beginning to end. It's the 3rd book in this series and in my opinion the best one of the bunch. Jillian is amazing. Kristen really knows how to write a heroine. All of her heroine's are strong, smart, beautiful, fun-loving women. Doormats need not apply. My favorite part was that there was no instant forgiveness from Jill. Man, I hate instant forgiveness. Finally, a woman stands up for herself and makes her man take responsibility for the crappy way he treated her. Damn straight! I will be reading this again and again and I can highly recommend anything written by Ms. Proby.

Nice addition to this series. It is a stand alone book that has shows a independent woman with baggage and a struggling man with baggage that get together. There is really no huge conflicts or angst. The sex scenes are often. There is romance. They have a well deserved HEA. A good read, enjoy.

I really enjoyed the book and have loved the whole series. This book is about Jillian and Zack and both of them have had a a hard time the past few years. But once they let go of their fears and come together the sparks begin to fly. I love that it wasn't all roses and they definitely hit a rough patch but once they got through it  everything worked out! Make sure you give this book and the other one's in the series a try and you won't be disappointed!

I enjoyed this book. This is set out in the country. Kristen developed an awesome story line. There are just enough spoilers to keep the reader's interest. Both Zack and Jillian have been married before. Zach is retired military with PTSD and working through it. He now has all rights to his son Seth. Jillian found her husband betraying her and after the divorce he bragged they were having a baby when he knew she couldn't. Zach and Jillian get together trying to work through their problems. There is a Big Spoiler at the end amid some smaller ones. I kept the tissues just in case I needed them. They were. This is an Adult read with TMI for younger readers. I hope you choose to give this book a try.  I have this book for an honest review for NetGalley.

Third book in the series and I enjoyed the book but like the first I found I was looking for more than had a hard time putting it down.  Can't really say why. I liked the characters and story but book 2 is my favorite of the series.

I was so anticipating the release of the last book of this trilogy and Kristen did not disappoint. I loved it and wish there were more in this series. I am definitely a new fan of Kristen Proby and will continue to read her other series.

Zack's and Jillian's story. Author Kristen Proby never fails to deliver a love filled story with humor, obstacles ( actual situations some of us face) and a magnificent ending. No cliffhangers. Well written with plot twist and all. Perfect character development throughout the story. She never fails to hit every emotion while reading one of her stories. ARC provided by in exchange for an honest review.

Ms. Proby is a talented author who tells great stories of life and living... Zack has had it tough with several deployments and many friends who did not make it home... Trapped into a loveless marriage with a bi@c# of a woman who later filed for divorce and abandoned his son, he comes back to Montana to take over the family ranch with his twin brother.. Jillian who has been married and divorced also comes home from the "big" city and their romance, while very believable, hits a lot of lows before they find their HEA...

Kristen Proby writes the kind of romance that you will want to come back to again and again. She has a way of intertwining her many characters, leaving you to love them each individually and all together. Even the characters that are secondary to the story have a way of leaving a huge impact. She creates stories with depth, characters that feel real and stories that capture you from beginning to end. Falling for Jillian is no exception, once again Kristen Proby has reminded me exactly why she is one of my all time favorite authors.   In Falling for Jillian we have a family dynamic that we were first introduced to in book one of the Love Under The Big Sky series, Loving Cara. Here we get the rest of Seth and his dad and how their family of two turns into a family of three. Jillian is convinced that she is not ultimatly what they guys need but the both of them realize that they need Jillian just as much as she needs them. This is a story of not only Zach and Jillian finding love in each other but for Seth as well. It a story the hits on the meaning of love and family and the many different ways it can be found and cherished.   Just like she did in the With Me in Seattle Series, Kristen Proby creates a family dynamic that is real, raw and passionate. Not just the sexy passion, but family passion. This is one of the formulas that makes all of her books so wonderful, there is so much depth to all the working parts of the story but never once do I feel overwhelmed from it. She writes so well that you don't have to stop and think about it, you just feel it in the connections you make with the characters while reading.

To Zach King, family is everything. He became a father at a very young age and then enlisted in the army to be able to provide for his wife and son. Unfortunately, after multiple tours overseas, his marriage fell apart, leaving him with a very angry twelve year old son who believed that his father did not want him in his life. Now Zach will do everything in his power to make a happy, healthy home for his son. Jillian Sullivan wanted a baby more than just about anything in the world. When her marriage fell apart and she caught her husband cheating on her, she fled LA for home, Montana. She is determined to stand on her own two feet and make a life for herself surrounded by the love of family and friends. She just never thought one of those friends might steal her heart. Falling for Jillian is a fantastic, fun read that will leave you with a smile days after you finish reading. I love Zach - such a wonderful alpha hero with a protective streak a mile wide. I love watching the interaction between Zach and his son, Seth. I love watching Seth come out of his shell, realize how many people love him and become comfortable in his environment. Jillian is such a compassionate, loving person who gives without ever expecting anything in return. While Falling for Jillian is the third book in the Love Under the Big Sky series, it can easily be read as a stand alone. I am very much looking forward to reading the other two books in the series, and cannot wait to see if Ms. Proby brings us any additional books after this one.

5 - "I could have lost you before I ever really found you." Stars! I love Kristen Proby, I don’t think there has been a book that she has written that I haven’t at least fallen a little bit in love with. Even the characters that you don’t 100% warm too, still always have a little something about them that you can get onboard with. Falling for Jillian is the third book in the Love Under the Big Sky Series, and once again Ms. Proby has managed to bring together a cast of characters and storylines that you cannot help but feel a part of. ”You are never going to forget all of the things I’m going to do to you tonight. Every inch of your amazing little body is going to feel me.” Zack King, being Josh’s twin brother (Book one, Loving Cara) and Jillian Sullivan being Tyler’s sister (Book Two, Seducing Lauren) have both featured pretty heavily in the series so far, there have been glimpses of the chemistry between the two of them in the previous books, so to finally get their story is an absolute treat. The addition of Seth, Zack’s son into this story gave it an extra dimension as well as the drama surrounding his errant mother, and although this book doesn’t really offer up any surprises in its storyline (particularly the things that occur between Zack and Jill in the second half of the book), I just couldn’t put it down. Much like the With Me in Seattle Series it’s like catching up with family! That dimple alone is going to be my undoing. Although a great epilogue, I am hoping against hope that there will be at least one more book in this series before the author puts it to bed (although more than one, would be more than acceptable to!)
