Series: Falling bk 2
Author: Audrey Carlan
I feel things. Deeply. More so than most people.
Call it an empathic ability, call it whatever you want. It doesn’t change the fact that I am unable to love…at least not again. When you’ve had everything and lost it, there is no do-over. You can’t repair a shattered heart. Instead of the pursuit of Mr. Right, I’m forever enjoying Mr. Right Now. It’s worked for me the last four years and will continue for the rest of my days. Then I met him. Collier Stone. My sexy Englishman. He is everything I don’t need, but can’t deny wanting. His body, his sheer essence calls to that deep place inside me. Doesn’t matter though. Regardless of how delicious his accent or how intense the chemistry that sizzles between the sheets, the simple fact remains. I will never give him, or any man, what they need from me. My name is London Kelley and I will never fall in love.
Review: The story picks up where the first book left off as far as date in time and it centers around characters that we met in Angel Falling, Aspen and Hank’s story. I love that London’s book gave us just enough of the past characters to get my fix! And gave us a deeper look into the characters that will make up the upcoming 3rd book in the series, Justice Falling!
The prologue on this story is gut-wrenching and touching and it lays the foundation for us to understand why London will not let herself love again. I also think the feelings that are evoked from these few pages really show the depth of talent that this author has with words! Anyone who knows me will not be shocked that I cried my eyes out! LOL
You’re rolling right along with this story, always rooting for your characters to end up together but at the same time understanding London’s hesitancy and then understanding Collier’s frustration from her holding back… I enjoyed the addition of Tripp (London’s BFF) into the dynamic of London and Collier’s falling in love. Tripp was there with a shoulder for a confused and scared London and IMO he made Collier’s cool British façade crack with the spark of jealousy that Collier could not suppress. And then WHAM! The last portion of this book threw me a curve that I did not see coming!!! There we are again with emotions that came out in gasps and tears and made me turn the pages faster and faster to see what happened!
This story delivers all the laughter (think sex against a too-thin door at a dinner party), tears and HOT hot scenes (did I mention the sex against the door?) that this author gave us in Angel Falling. This story is a love story about the heart and souls ability to open up and love again. This story should make you sigh a happy sigh and smile about the HEA that is becoming a trademark for Ms. Carlan’s work!
Grade A+ read!! It was such an honor to beta and receive an ARC of this book from Audrey and I will anxiously wait for the next book, Justice Falling, to blow me away as well!!
