Fall in love with the Preeter brothers in this 5-star NA novel!
First, I had to remember how to breathe. Then, I had to learn how to survive. Two years, three months and sixteen days had passed since I was the Rowe Stanton from before, since tragedy stole my youth and my heart went along with it.
When I left for college, I put a thousand miles between my future and my past. I’d made a choice—I was going to cross back to the other side, to live with the living. I just didn’t know how.
And then I met Nate Preeter.
An All-American baseball player, Nate wasn’t supposed to notice a ghost-of-a-girl like me. But he did. He shouldn’t want to know my name. But he did. And when he learned my secret and saw the scars it left behind, he was supposed to run. But he didn’t.
My heart was dead, and I was never supposed to belong to anyone. But Nate Preeter had me feeling, and he made me want to be his. He showed me everything I was missing.
And then he showed me how to fall.
This is Falling by Ginger Scott is a new-adult, coming-of-age novel. It is about new beginnings and letting go of the past.
I loved this book for its tragedy, its clumsy, unsure beginnings and its hope. Having two young adults who have recently moved to college, I appreciated the uncertainty the characters expressed as they stretch their wings having just flown their own nests. The development of new friendships in the dorm mirrored my children’s experiences. Ms. Scott has captured the essence of that age group and the first experiences of college life.
Both lead characters, Rowe and Nate, have difficulties in their past that they must overcome. Rowe’s past is fraught with tragedy and guilt, while Nate is dealing with a more typical young adult dating experience. Nate is the perfect young man, and his courtly patience in wooing Rowe is charming. Their sweet dance toward a relationship is refreshing. Ms. Scott’s depiction of the roller coaster of their new relationship brings the reader into the fireworks and butterflies and the adrenaline rushes as well as into the floods of tears shed due to misunderstandings.
The plot is perfectly paced and thoroughly engaging. Both the primary and secondary characters are fully developed. There are no unnecessary characters who don’t add to the storyline, and their are no throw-away, unneeded details.
I highly recommend this endearing new adult romance to all age groups, and I’m looking forward to Ginger Scott’s follow up in the Falling series, You and Everything After.
*This is a standalone in a three-part series that will focus on different characters. Each book can be read on its own, and best of all, the entire series is already published!
