THE STORY YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW…
When Kyle Calloway died, he took a part of Nell with him. She wasn’t the only one left to pick up the pieces, however; Kyle’s death left a gaping hole in the hearts and lives of his parents and his older brother Colton, and ultimately broke the will of the girl he loved.
THE STORY YOU NEVER IMAGINED…
Becca de Rosa is Nell’s best friend. When Kyle died, Nell was so devastated that no one could reach her, not even her best friend Becca. As she tries to help Nell through her grief, Becca’s own life is thrust into turmoil, and everything she knows is changed.
Jason Dorsey asked Nell out the week after her sixteenth birthday, but that date never happened. Instead, he ended up going out with Nell’s best friend, Becca. He had no way of knowing, then, how that one date would send him on a life-long journey with Becca. He had no way of knowing the tragedies and triumphs he would experience, or that in Becca, he might find the love of a lifetime.
THE HEARTACHE YOU’LL NEVER FORGET…

In Falling Into You we read about the story of Nell, Kyle, and Colton. After Kyle died, Nell, fell apart. Basically giving up living, because to her life wasn’t worth much without Kyle by her side. After moving to New York to hopefully start over and start living again, she ran into Colton, Kyle’s older brother and fell in love. We read about their story. About how 2 damaged souls came together as one and healed each other.
What we didn’t read is the story of Jason and Becca. Jason, Kyle’s best friend, and Becca, Nell’s best friend. Not only did Nell suffer from the death of Kyle so did Jason and Becca and this is their story. Jasinda once again takes us on an emotional journey that will pull at your heart strings. She will make you feel love, heartache, anger, joy, bliss, and pain. When I read Falling Into You I wasn’t focused on Jason and Becca but after reading Falling Into You I am so glad that Jasinda gave us their story because their story is beautiful. Jasinda had us crying in Falling Into You and I should have known I would be….
In Falling Into Us!
I am going to start with Becca. She is bright, funny, smart, caring, dedicated, determined, brilliant, and truly doesn’t see how beautiful she is on the outside. Becca is always worried about everyone else, trying to please her parents in every way and just not being completely happy with her life. I loved Becca and who she was. She never tried to be anyone different. She had her own insecurities especially with her stuttering but she was okay with herself for the most part. She liked a boy, a boy named Jason, and from the first moment they finally went on a date the rest is history.
There was something about Jason that brought out the naughty in Becca. To everyone else she was the good girl, the one who followed the rules and walked to straight and narrow but when she got around Jason there was something about him that made her let her hair down and made her all sorts of sexy! She was free and she loved the feeling she got when she was around him. He brought out her inner…
“God…Becca.” His voice was thick, low, rough. “How am I supposed to be able to breathe when you’re so beautiful?”
Jason doesn’t have the best home life – in fact his home life down right sucks. His father is an ass and his mother has basically checked out along time ago. His father is hard to please in every way it doesn’t matter what Jason does it’s never good enough, it can always be done better. When Jason finally opens his eyes and truly looks at Becca he knows that he life with never be the same. He will fight every day for her love and stop and nothing to prove to her that he is worthy of her.
“You’re not allowed to talk about yourself like that, Becca. You understand me?” His eyes darkened. “You’re beautiful. You’re sexy. You’re so hot it takes my breath away. I don’t understand how I could have ever seen anyone else before now. Your hips are perfect, and to a guy, ‘top-heavy’ is a good thing, and you are top-heavy in the best possible way. You have an amazing body, Becca. A-maze-ing. And your stutter? It’s just part of who you are to me. It doesn’t bother me.”
Jason is such a sweet character that you will absolutely fall in love with. He is sweet, kind, strong, passionate, and sexy as hell. The way with his words and the way he can work his hands and tongue would have any girl including me….
You will watch Jason and Becca’s relationship grow from nervous young teenagers learning new things together to strong and independent young adults with more love and life ahead of them. Their relationship will have their ups and downs, twists and turns. Life is never easy and that is true for them too. Tragedy will strike and hearts will break, but they are determined to pull through and be there for each other no matter what the price is.
“I’m scared, Jason.”
“I’ve got you. I won’t let anything happen. I promise. Now, on three. Ready? One…two…three!”
I still can’t get over everything that Jasinda gave us in this story. Even though there were times when I had tears running down my face there were times when I was …..
Oh! And don’t worry we get a little visit from Colton and Nell in this story too…We will see where they are in their relationship and how things are going for them. We learn a few new things about their relationship as well that had me…
So to wrap this up! Jasinda I thank you for giving us another 5 star read! I am so happy you gave us Jason and Becca’s story because it truly was AMAZING! I couldn’t get enough, I didn’t want it to end. When I finished the story I felt like…..
In those moments, everything was finally okay.—Falling Into Us
