Happily that is NOT the case with Allyn Lesley's Falling. We get enough of Dylan's background to discern what makes him--initially--such a jerk. And then as we read, we learn he isn't really the jerk we thought he was. As we peel away the layers, he begins to change, grow and mature as a man and it's all because of love. Because of their age difference (Dylan is twenty-four, Chelsea is just turning eighteen) they want different things. They keep being thrown together because of their families and various circumstances, which Dylan initially hates. But it soon becomes obvious that Chelsea is the girl who chips away at the wall Dylan has built around himself (yes, that Alpha Male Wall). :)
One of the things I enjoyed about this story was that I found the characters to be very believable. They make mistakes, they screw up, they grow. This made me feel, as a reader, like I was always in their corner because I could empathise with them. And that is something I always appreciate.
Both characters have an interesting arc and the supporting characters (all the family members and mutual friends) add another rich layer to this story. I have the feeling there will be more to Dylan and Chelsea's story.
A solid love story! My rating? 4 stars! A Recommended Read.
Dylan got adopted when he was 16yrs old. The Sterlings... Chuck, Ma and his older twin bro's JC and EC. He definitely didn't make it easy at the beginning. But, once he realized they were his family they were super close. Their family motto that all 3 boys have tattooed on all them is Family is Forever.
When JC comes into the shop with two sisters following him, Dylan knew he was in trouble. Chelsea and Emma followed his brother to where Dylan was under the hood of the car he was working on. When he saw Chelsea he'd never seen a woman so beautiful in his life. When he finds out she's leaving for college in two weeks, he plans on getting to know her.
It's odd for Dylan to feel the way he does about Chelsea. He's set up certain rules for himself so he won't get hurt by another woman again in his life. With Chelsea leaving the next day he ends up breaking all his own rules with her. Hoping she'd be worth it. Until he wakes up the next morning and Chelsea has dipped out without a word except a sticky note with the words "Thank You" on it.
The next few years weren't easy for Dylan. His brother JC & Emma are getting married. Dylan will have no choice but to see Chelsea. They have such an intense hot chemistry. A blind person can see it. Chelsea is the only woman to ever have Dylan so tongue/heart tied up into knots.
Unfortunately for Dylan and Chelsea all the times they were forced to spend time together. It didn't matter if it was good or bad they always ended up next to each other. But, every time they thought it could be their time something came in between them.
I absolutely loved this story! Dylan made me cry multiple times. I was glad that nobody was around when my eyes started leaking. What he didn't go thru in his childhood and even in his adulthood. Dylan deserved everything that he earned in life. I understood why he thought, acted and did what he did. I just wished he would've pulled his head out of his ass sooner then he did.
I adored Chelsea as well. I get why she was/did what she did. She met Dylan two weeks before she turned 18. Chelsea was young and at that age you never seem to do thing right. We've all been there and done that. If you're shaking your head no then you're lying to yourself lol.
I loved them and their families. This was a fantastic read. I wish I could get more from them. Maybe Allyn will give EC a book and we can get more from this family.
My heart broke for Dylan and the things he endured as a child. It was obvious he had no idea how to express himself positively and admit his feelings. It was easier to push people away then to have them leave you. There couldn't have been two more opposite people than Dylan and Chelsea. Maybe that's what made them perfect for each other. Little do they realize, they'll be thrown in each others paths often since her sister Emma is marrying JC.
Chelsea was an amazing girl. Sweet, caring, and completely head over heals for Dylan. It was such a rough road in the beginning, but I admired how she handled everything. Not many would have her strength and understanding. Most would have given up on him a long time ago. So many mistakes are made and at times we wonder if love and forgiveness will ever be enough.
Follow these two through their journey and you won't be disappointed. I loved the ups and downs and the drama of a one night stand that would never go away. I was riveted and on the edge just waiting to see what would happen next. Allyn writes a beautiful love story with redemption for our hero.
