I recommend that everyone read this book and the sequel! Falling, by Kassanna, is definitely not your typical romance story. It is the story of an ex-con racist who is “falling” for an African American woman. That set up alone, while not how it is described in the blurb, made me want to read this story. Whit is a soft-hearted woman who has nothing herself, but is always ready to give to others. The one person whom she cares for the most is baby Isaac. When circumstances lead to her having custody of him, she also inherits his ex-con racist father. Bobby Jack is a man who was raised to be a racist, with all the body tattoos to show for his beliefs. The one thing that gets him through his prison sentence is the knowledge that when he is released his son and baby mamma will be waiting for him. As the book progresses we see the evolution of Bobby Jack into a slightly different character than he was at the start. Seeing a character evolve over the course of a story is something I thoroughly enjoy, since in life we all evolve. When you add in the romance between Whit and Bobby Jack and how he is handling falling for an African American, you can only root for them to have a happily ever after. The part of this book that actually shocked me the most, which shouldn’t have, was how many different types of “white racist” there are. We all know the KKK, skinheads and Aryans. I never thought about the differences between those three groups and how there are others. Ms. Kassanna truly did her research for this book! I understand there will be a sequel to this work and recommend that everyone read this book and the sequel. I will warn readers that because of the subject matter there are some harsh scenes and language used. -Reviewed by Selina

Had so much potential but the rushed ending ruined it. Hopefully this is a part 1. Wouldn't make sense if it's not.

Kassanna did it with this one. If you can overlook the racism in the plot this turns out to be a beautiful love story!

Excellent gritty story. Loved the background on each of the characters and the interaction between the characters. This story was real to the core. I would have liked the story to have continued after Bobby Javk came home. To see what happened with his dad, cousins and Riley. Hope there is a continuation.

I hate to be critical but this was teeth clenching painful to read. The main characters were portrayed awful. I don't know any self respecting black female that would tolerate being called "colored" are would find the racist doing the calling "sexy". Sorry, but this was not a credible read. There was not enough redemption for Bobby Jack. Someone mentioned a possible second book in a previous review. I beg you, please don't write another one.

I loved this book really thought it brought both sides of the racial spectrom together and the plot was a little weak but the comady and romamce made up for it.

The male character is a hateful racist, but finds himself falling in love with an African American woman who is taking care of his infant son. I found that there was little reformation of his ways, and though he is intimate with the female character, he essentially still has discriminatory feelings towards minorities. I would have loved to see a greater change and acknowledgement of the error of the male character's ways.

It is really a good book, however it ended to abruptly. It needed more at the end.
