Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Falling Into Us by Jasinda Wilder



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.


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.

In Falling Into You you learn about Kyle, Nell & Colton. Kyle was Nell's forever until he died way to young. Colton is Kyle's older brother and he helps Nell get her life back and learn to love again. In this book we meet Jason & Becca. Becca was Nell's best friend while Jason was Kyle's. Kyle's death not only affected Nell & Colton but had a huge impact on their friends also. In Falling Into Us we get Jason & Becca's story from high-school to young adulthood. We see how they overcome tragedy & their own demons to find a future they both deserve. 

“I can’t promise you forever, because that’s not long enough.”

Becca, Nell's best friend was use to living in Nell's shadow. She is very smart, sweet, a great friend & determined to please her VERY strict parents. She was also a little shy & insecure because of her stuttering problems. But when she goes out with Jason one night after crushing on him for years her world is turned upside down.

Jason is a star athlete in high-school. He also knows what it feels like to live in someone's shadow because he has been friends with Kyle for a long time. He works hard at being the best at everything he does because if he doesn't he has to face the consequences at home. Dealing with his horrible home life & then the tragedy that rocks them all Becca is his only saving grace. 

"I’m thoroughly addicted to you, Becca. If I don’t get a regular fix of your body, I might go into withdrawal.”

Falling Into Us pulls no punches. It brings out all the emotions a good book is suppose to sends you on a emotional roller-coaster ride of epic proportions. Jasinda does an amazing job of capturing your attention and dragging you kicking and screaming through an heartbreaking, gut wrenching but oh so wonderful story of life, love & hope for the future. 

"The only way past the pain is through it. You can’t escape it. You can’t ignore it. Pain, grief, anger, misery…they don’t go away—they just increase and compound and get worse. You have to live through them, acknowledge them. You have to give your pain its due."
