I'm not even sure I can put into words how much I LOVED this book. Gia pulled me in from the beginning being a strong, independent, self-sacrificing single mom. Having been a single mom and struggling to make ends meet...it reminded me how I felt and gave me that much more of a connection. Then we meet Jase...and holy hell...where the heck was he when I was a single mom? I fell so in love with him. The nerdy millionaire who's not comfortable around women...heck YES...sign me up!
All I can say is...READ THIS BOOK! You definitely won't be disappointed. Then add Stephie Walls to your automatic one-click list!!!
Fallen Woman followed Gianna/Gia as she tried to fight her way back out of poverty. Having grown up in poor circumstances, she made her way to a prestigious university where she married someone she loved and admired. Though her circumstances take a drastic turn when her husband passes away and she's left with nothing. Now a single mother with multiple little ones, and one who is very sick, she's barely scraping by. When she finally gets a job, things are starting to look up. That's when she meets Jase. The become friendly and while Gia tries to push him away, he finds his way into a friendship with her.
It's obvious to Jase that Gia needs help and he wants to be the one to help her. Jase makes a proposition for Gia. She can accompany him and his friends to certain social events and they'll pay her. While it's really just friendly companionship, at times it feels to Gia like much more than that. And when things turn belly up and all their relationships start to look suspect all the while Jase and Gia have a connection that's hard to name and even harder to pin down.
The premise of this book was quite intriguing but I was kind of lost is the "whys". The whole situation between Jase and Gia was just kind of lost on me. Why didn't they just talk to each other? Why did Jase let it go so far with his friends for so long? Why didn't Gia stop while she was ahead? Why start the whole charade at all? By the time the major conflicts came into play, I just wasn't really feeling the story as a whole and didn't feel much of anything between Gia and Jase since it took so long to develop. I still wanted to know how it ended and was happy with the ending but getting there just didn't really work for me.
Jase Lane is a successful man who is attracted to Gianna the moment he meets her. Gradually the two form a friendship and Jase vows to do all he can to help her out of her situation. As Gianna will not accept any hand outs, Jase and his friends come to an agreement about ways they can help her.
But things don't always work as they seem and soon Gianna finds herself in more difficulties and unable to pay medical bills for her daughter Emmy. When Jase finds out the truth will he be able to help Gianna or will he take matters into his own hands making everything worse?
Will Gianna and Jase be able to sort out their own feelings for one another in between everything falling apart around them?
I loved this story!
As a single mom there were so many parts where I could completely relate to Gianna and the length that she would go to for her children. She would rather do without than deprive her kids but she fell on such hard times that she was desperate to get a job anywhere.
Gianna was proud and didn't want to take a handout but she knew she was in trouble and therefore was willing to help Jase and her friends out. It made Gianna feel important yet she felt she was only there as a friend. Yet it didn't end up working out for her that well in the long run.
I loved Jase and how he tried to hide his feelings for Gianna yet was there for her completely and wanted her to feel important and not that she was taking handouts. Jase would have done anything for Gianna and her kids and was so extremely devoted to them. It was amazing what he did for Derrick and Miss Pearl.
I was blown away by how people change and the way that Jase's friends ended up changing and not being there for him. It was pretty disappointing about Jase's family wasn't there for him as well.
The end was amazing and I am so glad things worked out the way they did.
