My name is Colton Calloway. You've heard part of my story, but it turns out there's more. My little girl, Kylie, is all grown up. Seventeen, beautiful, and talented, just like her mother. And just like Nell, my daughter seems to have fallen for a bad boy, one with a lot of darkness and a lot of secrets.

* * *

You thought you knew the whole story. You thought it was over. Happily ever after for everyone.

You were wrong. 

My name is Oz Hyde, and you’ve never met me. I’m part of the story, too, but I’m an aside, a quick line or two you’d all but forgotten about. Well guess what? I’ve got my own story to tell. 

Buckle up, ‘cause this is gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride.

Gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
~ 5 ★★★★★ Emotionally Charged and Seductive ~

“Everyone knows girls like the bad boys, and I’m thoroughly bad.”

Falling Under is a surprise release from Jasinda Wilder it’s a continuation of the Falling Series. Falling Under picks up like 18 years after Falling Into You. It’s all about Kylie and Oz’s journey this time. Kylie is Colt and Nell’s 17 year old daughter. Oz he’s 21 and all things, bad boy. Sweet and innocent meets Tormented and Wounded. 

There is so much angst, and heartache engrained in Falling Under, I felt like I was revisiting Falling Into You all over again. It was the first Jasinda Wilder book I had ever read, and it remains one of the most emotionally charged and memorable books I have ever read. To be able to write such pure magic once is astounding, but she has done it again. Famous for leaving her readers emotionally crippled and sobbing in a corner, while rocking back and forth, she does it all over again. The emotional power wielded in this book is astounding. From page one; you feel Oz’s pain, desperation, disappointment, his loneliness.  Kylie is a beautiful, intelligent, mature and extremely compassionate young woman, coming into her own. Kylie sees something n Oz that he doesn’t see in himself, and it is through patience, understanding and a mutual love of music, that their relationship becomes indestructible. Once you read, you’ll understand my choice of word here, trust me. The romance and the heat, is there, it’s all there. There are scenes that are incredibly sexy. Kylie and Oz’s physical connection is sweet, a little innocent, and still manage to be seductive. The balance is perfect.

As a reader Falling Under allows you to revisit Nell and Colt, Becca and Jason, but also introduces you to new characters to adore and ache for. The level of emotional turmoil in Falling Under is indescribable. You will be left feeling exhausted, sated, and contented. Book Hangover is Eminent. It seems that soul shattering, impassioned stories are the ones Jasinda does best, because once again I am left swollen eyed, runny nosed, and bereft.

Falling Under is breathtaking in its perfection. A book not to be missed.

I’m not trying to change you. I just want a piece of you.”    

♥ Memorable Moments ♥

 “The pain grounds me. Brings me down anchors me so I don’t float away.”

♥ “Oz, I’m not scared of you. I’m not afraid of your life. Of getting dirty. So quit trying to protect me and let me make my own choices.”

♥ “The hope germinating in my chest scares me, because it’s such a fragile shoot, tender and green and new, and the slightest breeze could kill it. And the many bones in my darkened closet ache from the impending storm.”
