Today marks Day 29 of 31 Days of #BookLove. Rather than review all 323 books I read year, I decided to share one of my favorites. I meant to wrap this up in December, but I got hit with the plague. So…the #BookLove continues into 2014.
FALLING INTO YOU by Jasinda Wilder
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
I wasn’t always in love with Colton Calloway; I was in love with his younger brother, Kyle, first. Kyle was my first one true love, my first in every way.
Then, one stormy August night, he died, and the person I was died with him.
Colton didn’t teach me how to live. He didn’t heal the pain. He didn’t make it okay. He taught me how to hurt, how to not be okay, and, eventually, how to let go.
What I Liked:
This is another book that feels like two stories in one. I thought the story would pick up pretty close to Kyle’s death (it’s in the synopsis. Instead, the first half of the book unfolds slowly, showing teen friends Nell and Kyle falling in love over several years. It’s tragic and heartbreaking when he dies because we’ve gotten to know Kyle and fall for him to. Nell doesn’t think that she’s ever going to be okay. That’s when Kyle’s older brother Colton enters the picture. Where Kyle was the good boy, the one who always did the right thing, Colton is the one who left his family behind to make his own path in the world. He’s the opposite of Kyle, but I loved how Nell’s character changed and grew in the story, allowing for room for her to mature into a different kind of relationship. There is a lot of angst and drama in this story, so be prepared.
