I know I'm in the minority of the readers, but this book was just okay for me. It was too angsty, dramarama, and self-involved -- in an unrelenting, constantly needy sort of way. Every book needs some drama and angst, but this book has about 300 pages more than my limit (it's 430 pgs.)
The book switches points-of-view between the two main characters, which isn't something I have an issue with unless, as in this book, there's no noticeable style difference between the two people. The POV used for the male perspective just doesn't sound male. While the profanity and sexual content rises with the male perspective, the vocabulary is just too soft and romantic for a straight man who's clearly not metro-sexual. It just didn't feel real.
I'm not a fan of most reality TV, but the behavior in this book reminds me of some of the over-the-top caterwauling that makes good TV, so fans of that genre would probably really enjoy this book.
..just remember, the storm doesn't last forever. It can scare you; it can shake you to your core. But it never lasts. The rain subsides, the thunder dies, and the winds calm to a soft whisper. And that moment after the storm clouds pass, when all is silent and still, you find peace. Quiet, gentle peace.”
Oh but what a storm Kami has to endure to find that gentle peace. This one of those stories where not much is beautiful. It is broken from the first words read and while the fragments may get put back together, the cracks are permanent. My first time reading S.L. Jennings was a total treat.
Fear of Falling is such a perfect title for this read, even the love story that develops. Kami is beautiful woman who basically exists in body but lacks true soul. She has endured the most ugly of abuses and her life is dominated by FEAR. Whether irrational or not, she is consumed with the dark and lives in a world where LOVE is not able to be given or received.
It was completely unexpected that a tattoo'd/pierced mountain of a man with hooded lust in his eyes would be the catch in Kami's life when she finally fell. Blaine is everything good about a book boyfriend. He is the epitome of goodness for Kami and her world of barren emotion.
“You can't expect to save someone that doesn't want to be saved.”
This read was so emotionally awesome. The feels were everywhere from overwhelming sadness and dread to beautifully open hope found in the arms of a man who is not only a giver, but a taker. That is not a bad taking...it is Blaine holding onto a woman he sees and wants and taking her fears and making them his own.
I got you, baby. I got you, and I’m not letting go. You’re safe. I’m never letting you go, Kami.
The journey is not smooth. The relationship is not easy. Kami and Blaine are captivating enough but with Dom and Angel, key supporting characters, the story is even more riveting. If you are a lover of angst and not afraid to wade through the darkness to find that beauty can come from pain, then this read will blow you away. Look past the horror and the staggering abuse and see what it is about...the promise of better!
I so wanted to love this book more, but Kami kind of ruined that for me. Kami – is hands down a strong person. After what she went through and seen in her short life is just horrific. With that being said, I felt Kami was a hypocrite and annoying. She would tell her friends that they’re more than what they think they are and they too deserved a happily ever after, but in that same breathe she would say she doesn’t deserve anything. That annoyed me because she is in the same boat as her friends (different situations) but refuse to acknowledge what she says to them also applies to her. Blaine – was truly a sweetheart and was a great character. What really tick me off and dropped my rating for this book was Kami. She completely went ballistic on Blaine for no reason and the fact that she brought his mother into an argument was petty and I lost a lot of respect for her character after that. But! The worst part was at the hospital. Blaine literally saves her life and yet she still acted like a complete ungrateful person. Kami did not deserve Blaine, at all. This is the first time I felt the H should have left the h and moved on. 3 months! 3 flipping months past and Blaine wrote a letter to Kami basically saying he will move on and for some reason Kami now thought Blaine was the one for her and she made a mistake. It took her that long to realize what a fool she was because of a letter. I wasn’t convinced. I felt the ending was rushed. I wanted Kami to truly realize what she did and said to Blaine was uncalled for and I wanted Blaine to make Kami work for her apology. I get she had it rough, but that doesn’t excuse her behavior. The writing style and the storyline was great, but Kami’s character was unlikeable, which kind of ruined the book for me.
