~~~Ena’s 5 Star OMG I am crushing Jasinda Stars~~~
Oh Jasinda Wilder what have you done to me? I have heard about Falling Into You from a lot of different people and how wonderful it is so when I finally found a moment of piece I decided to pick it up and find out what all the fuss was about.
Well the fuss did not do this book justice. I did not read the synopsis for this book before reading it so I was going into it totally blind and holy water sprinklers! Jasinda was ripping my heart out with this read. She pulled me into this story and didn’t let me go, I am seriously still holding on waiting for Falling Into Us. I felt like I was a part of it and was feeling every emotion, every tear, every laugh, every scream, every heartache, every touch, every kiss, everything that Nell was feeling. My heart was ripped out, stomped on and smashed and then Colton swooped in and took my heart and mended it and placed it gently back into my chest so I could breathe again.
“You don’t ever really let go, though. You don’t stop. You don’t stop hurting, you don’t stop loving. It doesn’t go away, you just keep living and eventually shit gets pushed into the background of your life so it’s not consuming you every day. And then one day you know you’re okay. It still hurts, you still miss that person. And yeah, you forget the details. The way she smelled, the way her mouth tasted, how her skin felt, the sound of her voice. It’s almost like a different life, a different person that loved her, was with her. But on a day-to-day level, you know you’re okay. Sort of.”
Falling Into You was a very beautiful story about losing love and finding it again. It was about learning how to let go of something in your past and move on with your future. It shows us how you can love someone with all your heart and soul in your past and love someone new with all your heart and soul in your present and future. I couldn’t put this book down if I wanted too. It consumed me from the time I woke up until the time I went to bed. The emotion that was poured into this story still makes my heart beat just a little bit faster and still has been swooning over the characters.
Nell pulled at so many of my emotions during this read she had my feelings all over the place like I was riding a tilt a whirl and never stopped. Her love for Kyle and her love for Colton touched my heart and made me cry for her. She is lost and lonely and unsure of herself and her feelings. She is also strong and determined and feisty and a little bit scared.
“You’re a lot of things, Nell Hawthorne. You’re complex. You’re cute. You’re lovely. You’re funny. You’re strong. You’re beautiful.” She seems to be struggling with words and emotions. I keep going. “You’re tortured. You’re hurting. You’re amazing. You’re talented. You’re sexy as fuck.”
Kyle is Nell’s first love. Best friends since they were young kids but as time went on desires got stronger and they couldn’t deny their feelings for one another. She was his first love and he was hers. They gave each other everything. Their love for one another was strong and real, even at their young age they knew that they were meant to be.
“And now we’re learning how to fall in love together. I don’t care what any one else says. I love you. I’ll always love you, no matter what happens with us in the future. I love you now and
But sometimes life isn’t fair and things happen to us that we don’t understand and can’t explain. Life happened to Nell and Kyle and nothing would be the same. Their love for each other will always be there but moving on is harder than one would think. Nell struggles with her life every day, she can’t escape her past and the nightmares that still wake her up screaming. She is a shell of the person she used to be and she doesn’t know how to move forward and start living again.
Colton is strong, determined, smart, funny, compassionate, caring, giving, hard, and sexy. He is everything that attracts Nell but she knows she needs to keep her distance. She is still living in the past and having Colton around only confuses her more. She is lost and he wants to find her. She is lonely and he wants to comfort her, she is broken and he wants to make her whole again.
“I can tell you what I see. I can tell you what I know about you. I can tell you how I feel. I can’t show you what you really are. But arguing with you won’t accomplish anything. I think we’ve both had our share of people trying to fix us. It doesn’t work. We can only fix ourselves. Let ourselves heal.”
The chemistry and passion between Colton and Nell is out of this world intense. She literally needs him to survive and the same goes for him I think. Separate they are just half of a person but together they become a whole. They complete each other. Colton is Nell’s rock and pushes her to let go of the past and move forward. Nell is Colton’s calm and helps him with dealing with his past so he can move on with his future. The electricity that runs between those two is addicting and you will want more of their story.
Overall this was a beautiful love story! It had heart and it made you feel so many emotions. I can’t explain into words the impact of this story you will just have to experience it for yourselves and read it. Jasinda Wilder did a beautiful job in creating a story about love and loss! A story that will show you the strength that people have within themselves to help heal their wounds and scars and move forward and continue to live life happily. She will open your eyes and open your heart to accepting things that are out of your control. She left me breathless and I am very grateful that I finally decided to pick up this story and experience Kyle, Nell, and Colton because I will remember their story forever!
