Falling Into You Blog Tour & Giveaway

This Song quote reminds me of this book soo much!
"Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...Some terrible nights..." (Fun Some Nights)


So since I have heard AMAZING things about how this book tugs on your heart strings, I've decided to start this review a little differently then normal. I'm going to post my emotional reactions at certain points of the book. With my review to follow.

6% undeniably sweet

15% a little teary eyed

25% ugly crying

And then I KNEW it was coming I mean we all know its coming and then BAM! and it hurts like all hell!!

Ok I totally got immersed in the book and forgot all about my emotional progress, but I'll tell ya I think I cried 3 more times. Wilder must have been emotionally raw after writing this, it was EPIC. It will engage every single emotion you have. Nell & Colton have suffered more then any one should ever have to but together they can attempt to heal. This may be the best book I have read this year maybe of all time. I hated putting it down, this book will touch your soul and leave you believing in the healing power of love & friendship. 
"I can't fix her. I know this too. I'm not going to try. I've had too many goody-goody girls hook up with me, thinking they can fix me. I also know that I'm not going to stay away. I'm going to grab onto her and let myself get cut. I'm good at pain. I'm good at bleeding, emotionally and physically."

When this was said I couldn't help but think how absolutely true it was, she needed to "fix" herself and without Colton she probably would have forever remained broken.  And then when you think everything is coming up roses, the hits keep on coming! Totally a 10 star read! If you want to read a book that will bury itself into your heart I recommend you get to know Colton & Nell.  Thank you Jasinda for this AMAZING book! I have to mention that one of my favorite things besides the great writing, incredible story, and steamy scenes was the use of music to help tell the story!





Synopsis 
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.

                                                                  

Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother Colton for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death. She seems to be harboring a deeply rooted pain, a heavy weight of guilt and regret. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but he can't help himself. Trust doesn't come easily for either of them, and they both have demons. Together, they learn the purpose of pain and the meaning of healing, and the importance of forgiveness.

                                                                    
Excerpt from Falling Into You:

It was just a single sob at first, a quick, hysterical inhalation. Then a second. And then I couldn't stop it. Tears, a flood of them. I felt the sand grow cold and muddy under my face, felt my body shuddering uncontrollably. He didn't tell me it was okay. He didn't try to pull me against him or onto his lap. He kept his hand on my shoulder and sat silent next to me.
I knew I wouldn't be able to stop. I'd let go, and now the river would flow un-dammed.
No. No. I shook my head, clenched my teeth, lifted up and let myself fall down hard, sending a spear of pain spiderwebbing out from my arm. The pain was a drug, and I accepted it greedily. It was a dam, stemming the tide of tears....








If your a frequent reader of my blog lately I like to find a song for each book I read. Something that speaks to me and reminds me of it. This was the hardest yet because I wanted to pick so many but knew I couldn't post like 20 videos haha. (in my mind)
