Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it takes someone else to show us what we are truly capable of becoming. Suffering from years of violent abuse, Ryan Campbell has learned how to keep people from getting too close. But when you shut yourself off, people get hurt along the way. Never caring much about others, Ryan creates a world in which he doesn't have to feel. When Ryan meets Candace Parker, all of his walls slowly begin to crumble. Not sure of the truth of who she is, he feels his mind is playing tricks on him. Unable to force out the thoughts that consume him, Ryan is haunted by visions that torment him every time he looks at her. He finds himself swallowed by guilt and blame, but he's unwilling to turn his back on the one person that could possibly save him. You've heard Candace's story in Fading, now hear Ryan's.

Way to long with very little in the way of romance

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not unless it was in paperback.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have cut out about half of it since it was mostly tears about the something. There was no depth.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I would have love to have a female voice or someone who has a passable female voice. Every other female was a valley girl. Blah.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A level of spicy. It was too tame.

Omg I love Ryan Campbell

If you could sum up Falling in three words, what would they be?

I so loved this book better than Fading. This book gave more of a complete story for this couple. Ryan was so loving and supportive, everyone should have a Ryan in their life. This world might be a better place.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling?

The extended story that picked up from where Candace's story left off in book 1. I liked seeing them work through their relationship and communicate better. Oh and I loved the diaper incident with the baby, I laughed out loud. I also enjoyed the cat situations too! It just showed another example of how much he cared and loved Candace.

Which character – as performed by Angelo Carillo and Piper Goodeve – was your favorite?

Candace was performed better by Piper, obviously because she is a female. I also like how Piper portrayed her male voice's too. She had good inflection for the male voice's. I can't tell if I liked her better for Candace because by the time Piper does her part as Candace the character, Candace is finally on the road to recovery and therefore stronger and more confident. However, I thought Angelo did a more passionate and feeling portrayal as Ryan. I didn't care for his female Candace, however his mother's voice was ok. I guess I liked them both which is why I am thinking that it would be nice if some how they, being Audible.com & Company could use both male and female narrators to perform more like a play on tape. But I don't know maybe it is too difficult to produce.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book had me laughing and crying. It also had me a little frustrated because of how many times candace apologized. Spoiler alert stop reading this if you don't want to know what happens. I was also frustrated because I would have liked to experience the joys of reading about her pregnancy, I was kind of looking forward to Candace telling him she was pregnant. Especially since Ryan was so good with his niece's and nephews you knew he would have enjoyed the impending fatherhood and that could have added to the story.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the story of this couple and enjoyed this book because of the complete story from start to finish.
