Editorial Reviews

Review

"We all understand fear, some more than others. Jennings takes you on an emotional journey where love heals what is broken. Fear of Falling is a beautiful story that stays with you and calls you back again." ~ Abbi Glines, author of Fallen Too Far and Twisted Perfection

"An emotional and realistic look at love through the eyes of two damaged souls. Superbly written, enticing and sensual; a must read for fans of contemporary romance!" ~ Karina Halle, author of Sins & Needles and Darkhouse

"A heart-stopping tale of pain, passion, overcoming your fears, and breaking free from chains that cement us to the ground, keeping us from moving forward." ~ Gail McHugh, author of Collide and Pulse

"It's a story about pain, suffering, abuse, and trying to break the vicious circle that we find ourselves reliving, retelling through our own lives. It's a story about hope." ~ Claire Contreras, author of There is No Light in Darkness and Darkness Before Dawn

"S.L. Jennings has taken a dark, cruel and real story and written a beautiful tale that gives hope for those in the same situation as Kami. I cried, I ached, and I fell in love with each of these characters." ~ E.L. Montes, author of Disastrous and Cautious

"I was completely sucked into the story from page one." ~ Teresa Mummert, author of White Trash Beautiful and Safe Word.

I was initially very intrigued by Kami. She seemed very mysterious and I wasn't sure what her troubled past was. As the details of her abuse started to unfold, I did feel very sorry for her and understood her reservations about getting into a relationship with Blaine (or anyone for that matter). Not only did she fear getting too close to people, but she had other fears that derived from other childhood memories. She is basically afraid of life. She just kind of wants to get by, unnoticed. When she meets Blaine and spends time with him, you can tell immediately that she feels something for him, even if she won't admit it to herself. Blaine really does bring out the best in her. He is kind, and has the patience of Job (as Kami actually says in the book). He knows she has some kind of issues that she is not divulging, but he doesn't let that deter him from her. Blaine is just an all-around good guy with a good heart who has also suffered loss (though nothing like what Kami has been through). I loved Blaine, and I loved him and Kami when they were together. Another reviewer said he was an alpha-male, but I definitely would not consider him an alpha-male.

However, my biggest reservation about this book was that I felt like Kami's insecurities and fears were kind of getting to the point of being slightly annoying. I really hope that doesn't make me sound like an insensitive a-hole because I swear I am NOT playing down what anyone might feel if they were Kami. Just as a reader, it kind of got under my skin. Blaine tries so hard to earn Kami's trust and never does anything to make her doubt him, but she constantly is back and forth with how she wants to handle her situation with Blaine.

After so many positive reviews, I was pretty surprised when I got about 1/2 way through this book and just couldn't take it anymore. I finished it anyway, as I feel it's unfair to review a book I didn't finish, but it never got better.

This book is one long whine. Yes, domestic violence against men, women, and children is a horrible issue and should in no way be excused. Yes, our pasts shape us and affect us and who we become. But, at some point, when reading a novel, I want to see some growth, some ray of hope, something to learn from. Up until the last chapter, all I got was a girl telling herself over and over how horrible she is. I get that she was a tortured soul, but she *refused* to do anything about it!
"No, my therapist is an idiot and a bitch and I refuse to see her anymore!"
"No, my friend who has stood by my side for years and supports and loves me unconditionally doesn't actually love me!"
"No, I don't deserve any love!"
And on and on it went. Paragraph after paragraph of self-deprecation and complete intellectual dishonesty. The book could have been about 1/2 as long, and it still would have been way too much rehashing of the same exact feelings over and over again.

There was zero character or relationship development that didn't have something to do with trauma. I wish the author had allowed the rest of the character's lives to shape them and their actions rather than making every single person plagued, troubled, and only defined by what other people had done to them in the past.

The hero was totally unrealistic. The climax/change was ridiculous. I wish I could get my two hours back.

"This is what you deserve, Kamilla, You're a dirty filthy whore. And whores need to be beaten. You make me do this to you. You make me hurt you. I wouldn't do it if I didn't love you."

Kami's childhood was a living hell. Her days are filled with fear...her dreams are littered with hate and despair. She is damaged...she is broken. Kami does her best to keep it together with the help of her two best friends - Angel and Dom. Every day is a struggle for her and she is no stranger to numbing her anxiety filled existence with booze. Kami had her share of hook-ups and one night stands and never allowed any relationship to develop into anything series. She didn't feel that she was able to be in a relationship since she carried around more emotional baggage than a luggage factory. Kami believed that any man that scratch the surface of what she held inside would run for his life. Then she meets Blaine. For the first time ever Kami feels something in addition to fear...she feels something real with Blaine after sharing one hell of tequila soaked body shot. One man tore Kami's world apart. Now another man wants to break down the emotional fortress that formed around her heart and just love and protect her. Will Kami's fears and violent past allow her to let Blaine in?

"There was too much...there. I don't know what is was that crackled between us, but it was there. And it was confusing the hell out of me."

Blaine is a scary-beautiful bartender covered in tattoos and some well-placed piercings. Blaine, who has own emotional baggage falls for Kami in a big way. Blaine and Kami's story unravels so smoothly from alternating points of view.

"He represented something that I could never have: a serious relationship, companionship, trust...love.
