Title: Falling Into You
Series: Falling #1
Author: Jasinda Wilder
Publication Date: March 14th 2013
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.

This book blew me away. Completely. I don't even know how to describe it. At first, I thought this was some sort of summer fling that I would read, review and forget about it. But this book is going to stick with me for a LONG time. I'm serious.
Falling Into You tells the story of two people who are hurting, the connection they have that makes them untouchable. Nell fell in love with Kyle Calloway, but when tragedy strikes and Kyle was ripped from her, a part of her died. I thought that Nell was strong and brave, dealing with that heavy load of guilt and sadness all by herself. There were parts when I'm practically screaming "WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO YOURSELF?!", but then I understand why. She needs help, but she's not ready to open up. Until Colton Calloway.
Colton is Kyle's brother. And I know what you're thinking, that it's so wrong to fall in love with a dead person's brother. It might be weird, but it's life. Live with it. That's what Colton taught Nell (or Nelly, Colton calls her that, it's cute). He taught her to feel the pain emotionally, no matter how much it hurts, instead of physically. He taught her to live it, fight it, and lastly, let it go.
Colton is hot. No one can say no to that. I mean, TATTOOS????? HELL YES!! I fell more in love with him as I read on. He's kind, understanding, not only does he teaches Nell how to deal with the pain, he's teaching himself as well. Colton has secrets he's learning to share, he's learning to trust, to love. Just like Nelly.
Like I said before, this book totally blew me away. Between the secrets and pain, the emotions connecting Nelly and Colton together was just so strong that I could even feel it. Jasinda made me feel everything in this book. I loved the playlist and the songs. I mean...it's basically my type of music!!
I can't wait to read the second book FALLING INTO US. I can't wait for Jason and Becca!!
