Spotlight and Review for Jasinda Wilder Falling Under

My name is Colton Calloway. You’ve heard part of my story, but it turns out there’s more. My little girl, Kylie, is all grown up. Seventeen, beautiful, and talented, just like her mother. And just like Nell, my daughter seems to have fallen for a bad boy, one with a lot of darkness and a lot of secrets.

* * *

You thought you knew the whole story. You thought it was over. Happily ever after for everyone. You were wrong. My name is Oz Hyde, and you’ve never met me. I’m part of the story, too, but I’m an aside, a quick line or two you’d all but forgotten about. Well guess what? I’ve got my own story to tell. Buckle up, ‘cause this is gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride.

5 Fantastic Stars

Review by Alison East

Jasinda Wilder is pure genius. I told her that I hated her for making me a wreck while reading!! But in fact she is the antithesis of hate. She is love. She is everything. And I also told her to never, ever quit writing. I would probably come to her house and just have her verbally tell me stories until I fall asleep every night if she ever quits. She's deliciously sinful- and sweetly saccharine, and all that is or ever was. Her ability to weave a story blows my mind. How she's written so many books, with so many plot lines is beyond the realm of my imagination but she does it every time. Then she says,  "I shall top that!" And takes characters she's already created, makes them have babies, and writes stories about them- and that's what she's done with Fallen Under.

She has the ability to build sentences so perfectly and eloquently, that I feel like I have a window into these characters' lives, their hearts and their souls. I was put through a gamut of emotions from heartbroken, to enamored, to devastated, back to truly joyful.

 Falling Under is the story of Colt and Nell from Falling into You- their daughter Kylie, and her love interest Oz. The story is narrated by male characters, (which I'm always so intrigued by) Oz and also Colt.

Oz is a fantastic character, he had his issues, doesn't know his father, moves a lot, gets picked on for being pretty poor, and has a bad boy image. He sees Kylie in one of his classes at the community college and is immediately intrigued. She's goodness and light, and he thinks he's the opposite and has nothing to offer her.

Kylie is a high school senior taking college classes when she meets Oz for the first time- she's immediately fascinated by him. He's the bad boy drifter and she's the perfect virgin.
They bond over music- Kylie is the daughter of Colt and Nell, famous indie singers and she's trying to get herself a gig in the country music world and Oz is a heavy metal guitarist. They shouldn't work-but they do.

It wouldn't be a Jasinda book without twists, turns, roadblocks, speed bumps, and curvy roads. If you take those things out, it wouldn't have made my heart clinch, or made big, fat tears slide down my face. It wouldn't have made me grin so big, that my heart almost burst with how happy I was.

 This book may be a novella, but to me it was like a full length novel. I didn't want it to end- but I'm glad I got the epilogue I wanted. Maybe a hint of a second story with another character? Hopefully- because he deserves a happy ending too. Thank you Jasinda for all that you do. Buy this book you won't be disappointed- I certainly wasn't!!
