This Is Falling by Ginger Scott
Sadly, I don’t think this was the book for me (sorry Jasmine! *hides* lol).
This Is Falling is the story of reclusive Rowe, yet another new adult heroine who does not see that she is amazing and has the popular hot guy fawning all over her within a matter of minutes. Normally I’m all for the damaged heroine plots, but for some reason this one didn’t really stick with me. Maybe if the author told Rowe’s story earlier on in the book I might have cared about her issues more? Anyways, this is the story of how Rowe and Nate meet and fall in love within a 3 weeks time period.
“And it happens all at once—just looking at him, I fall in love. But it doesn’t matter—because I can belong to no one.”
Don’t get me wrong, this book was really sweet and I did enjoy it, but it didn’t have much of a wow factor for me. So, I liked this book, but did not love it. I didn’t find anything particularly special about either of the MC’s and honestly, Nate just always seemed too goo to be true.
“I’m not angry at Rowe, I’m angry at myself for falling for her—for falling for a girl who can’t let herself be mine to love.”
What I did love about the book, was the side characters Cass and Ty. I am pretty darn excited that they get their own book! But on the subject of Ty…. Why the hell was he on the third floor of the dorm and not the first? I would think it’d be an issue if he couldn’t get to and from his room because the elevator broke down. (I lived in a 9th floor dorm room, believe me when I say that the darn elevators actually do break down in dorms!) Sorry to rant, but that really bugged me.
This book was also way too much instalove for my taste. So in the end, I would say this book was enjoyable, but I didn’t love it. I think other people other than me would thoroughly enjoy this and I’d have no problems recommending it.
“You are the face in all of my dreams and the smile I see when I close my eyes. Your voice when you sing in the shower late at night, when you think you’re alone, is like music to my ears.”
