Overview

He didn't want complications. She was looking for a miracle.

Quinn Freeman has spent his life avoiding the dangers of commitment, but his reluctant return to his home town that's in tragedy for his family stirs up memories and emotions he'd intended to leave buried. His arrival lights hope in many hearts including one long dormant.

Meghan O'Reilly, the town's only plumber and solo caretaker of her dependent sister, is weighted down with responsibility. She only sees in Quinn a careless charmer who isn't used to hard work--but she still can't keep from imagining his kiss... and longing for his touch.

Surely some things, like a fling between them, can be simple... Or is it possible for a fling to become forever?

Quinn returns home to a town where past memories are painful and does not want ties. Meghan lives in that small town and has dependent responsibilities to stay away from complications of a relationship. These two must come together to be strong to face future together. Like the small town atmosphere and characters that keep the reader emotionally into the story. Ebook from Netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.

Rating 4.5/5 This is a very emotional story with a tragic past which still has to be reconciled for many of those involved. Quinn Freeman was a young child when his father was tragically killed in a boating accident. Quinn and his family then left the town which had been their home, Creighton Falls, abandoning the hotel they owned there. Quinn can’t remember what happened but feels guilty about his father’s death. When his Mum asks him to go to check out their now derelict hotel, he does so reluctantly. He intends helping make only essentiall repairs to the property to enable it to be sold. He stays in a nearby town and has an unexpected encounter with a young lady there which results in the young lady’s sister verbally attacking him. Back at the hotel, he contacts a variety of local tradespeople to ask for quotes and one of them is the plumber, Meghan O’Reilly. It turns out Meghan is the protective sister he’d already encountered. She carries a lot of responsibilities of her own but their attraction is mutual even if totally unwanted but both of them! This is a delightful small town story, one where everyone knows everything about everyone else. Both Quinn and Meghan have their own issues and it is the exploration of these that makes this story such an emotional rollercoaster read. Their relationship develops from animosity to friendship and more as Quinn strives to work on repairing the hotel and develops ties within the community. Both Quinn and Meghan have lots to sort out for themselves before they can achieve their HEA together. This is the second book in this series but I think it works well as a standalone - though I have also read and reviewed the earlier novel, Falling For Christmas, which I also thoroughly enjoyed! Many thanks to the publishers who gifted me a copy of this book through NetGalley without any obligations. This is my honest review after choosing to read it!

Loved this book. Quinn has returned to Creighton Falls to get the deserted family hotel up for sale, not expecting to find love. Meghan is the town plumber, and care giver of her sister. She has offered her services in the repair of the hotel only. Soon Quinn is remembering memories of a tragedy that happened with his family from years ago. Meghan resists many of Quinn's charms, since he is only here for a short period of time. But soon Quinn wins her heart. Loved how Quinn stood up to his family and how caring he was to Meghan's sister. I highly recommend this book!!

Quinn Freeman's mom has asked him to go check on there hotel in Creighton Falls, that has been closed since his father passed away. Quinn thinks he is to blame for his fathers death. Meghan o'Reilly gets a call to fix a water leak at the motel and assumes they are re-opening the motel. The two have an attraction to one another but Meghan believes she isn't good enough for him. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and fun.

Falling Hard by Kate Hewitt...I love small town books everyone knows everyone's business. The characters are very well written and enjoyable seems like we are in the story. Quinn and Meghan have amazing chemistry and I enjoyed watching their stories unfold, can they make a relationship work. This is my first book by Kate Hewitt and I am looking for more books by her. Pick this book up you will enjoy it as much as I did. I received a complimentary copy of this book from publisher in exchange an honest review.

Falling Hard was a really good read. Meghan is a plumber who cares for her developmentally disabled younger sister. Quinn a billionaire travel bum, sent to ready his family's old hotel for sale. When Quinn meets the townspeople and Meghan, he realizes he wants to help the town and resurrect the old hotel. There was great chemistry between Meghan and Quinn, some funny and some sweet moments. I loved how Quinn accepted and grew to love Meghan's sister - he was so kind and sweet to her - it really highlighted his character and why Meghan would fall in love with him.

Excellent read!! The Freeman's are an interesting family and they have endured a tragic loss in the past. That's what drove them from Creighton Falls but now Quinn Freeman is in town, looking to update the old B&B and get it ready the sale. As the only plumber in town, Meghan O'Reilly gets called to work on the old place. Quinn and Meghan are immediately attracted to each other but both have a load of worries on their shoulders so nothing serious can start there. A fling maybe??? And how can Quinn get the town to understand that he has to sell the B&B rather than reopen it like they all want? This is a book you want to read. I highly recommend it.

Falling Hard by Kate Hewitt is such a romantic story about a man who can´t remember his childhood, but is sent back to decide the fate of an old hotel that has been in the family for years. It´s old and run down now, like the town, but need a loving hand. And love start to build. Both for the town, memories and more. It´s a good stories, well written and very emotional. Loved reading it.

I enjoyed revisiting Creighton Falls in this story. Meghan was a wonderful character. She has drive, tenacity, and a huge heart. Quinn was a wonderfully flawed character, his feelings run deep and both his strength and vulnerability just made him such a lovable hero. Mostly because the hero couldn't have gotten where he was, without help from the heroine. I love small town stories because of the quirky neighbors and the drama that is unique to a small town where everyone knows your business, whether you want them too or not. But the entire town is fiercely loyal to both the town and each other. Watching the changes in Quinn as he spent time in Creighton Falls was fun and heartwarming. Plus the story had plenty of hot moments as well.

"Falling Hard" by Kate Hewitt is book two in the "Falling for the Freemans" series. This is Quinn Freeman and Meghan O'Reilly's story. Quinn's family left the little town of Creighton Falls when his family suffered a terrible tragedy. In its day the B&B brought tourist to their little town and provided jobs or income to a large number of people and businesses. After his family left town they did not keep the B&B open and the town suffered financially. Once an attraction for Creighton Falls is now an eyesore. Quinn has been asked by his mother to go access what needs to be done in order to sell the B&B. Meghan's life hasn't exactly turned out the way she thought it would. She is the only town's plumber and is totally responsible for her dependent sister. Meghan has fond memories of when the B&B was up and running. It reminds her of the good days when she was growing up. She hopes that someday the Freeman's will reopen it. Meghan being the only plumber in town ends up working at the B&B for Quinn in his attempt to get it ready to sell. Meghan sees Quinn as someone that is a charmer not a hard worker, but that doesn't stop the sizzling chemistry that she feels between them. Quinn and Meghan both are dealing with different personal issues in their life. Will they allow these issues to prevent them from taking a chance at love? This is a great romance with lots of sizzle. This is also a story where people are working on moving past the hurts and disappointments from their childhood. Will they be able to? I received a copy of this book from Tule Publishing for an honest review. FYI, contains mature content.

Creighton Falls was once a happening town. People loved living there and tourists would stop by to enjoy everything the town had to offer. After a tragic accident resulting in a death, the Freeman family closed their hotel and left town. The town's residents have struggled to survive since then. Quinn Freeman has no memories before his family left Creighton Falls when he was six years old. It's been over twenty years and his mother has decided it's finally time to sell the hotel. Quinn has returned to see what it will take to get the hotel ready for the sale. Little did Quinn realize, returning to his childhood hometown would bring back some long forgotten memories along with a new appreciation for the town and its residents. Meghan O’Reilly, Creighton Falls only plumber, has lived there all her life. She loves her town, but as everyone there knows, the closure of the hotel has taken a toll on the town. People lost their jobs, businesses closed and tourists stopped visiting. She is excited about the opportunity to help out at the hotel and hopes it will help bring the town back to what it once was. When Meghan and Quinn give into the attraction that is growing between them, they decide it can only be a fling. Quinn will be leaving Creighton Falls as soon as he finishes the hotel renovations. And with Meghan raising her special needs sister, she is afraid to get too close to anyone. Too many people have walked away in her life and she doesn't want to go through that again. This is an emotionally charged story to pulls you in from the start. I enjoyed the growing romance between Meghan and Quinn and how hard Meghan worked to keep Polly safe and happy. The book was written in a way that pulls you into the story and makes you feel as if you are part of it.
