The story The Truth About Falling by H.M. Sholander is a new adult/romance book. Quote: Hudson talking to Jade: “If you’re not going to fight for yourself, will you let me fight for you?” This is just one of the statements made in this story that I loved. It shows how deeply Hudson is falling for Jade and wants to be the one that she can lean on. This is the latest book from an author who can weave a story that will leave you spellbound and create characters that you will not soon forget. This is the story of Jade and Hudson. Jade is a woman who is tough and gives snarky comments. Inside, however, she feels like a failure in so many ways. She doesn’t see herself as the selfless, strong, smart woman that she really is. She has created a wall around her heart, however, Hudson is breaking that wall down. Will Jade learn to fully trust Hudson with her heart? Will she let herself fall for Hudson? Over the course of reading this book, you can’t help but fall in love with the characters of Jade and Hudson. Hudson tells Jade that they “need each other.” Jade is starting to believe this and also starts to have something that she hasn’t for a long time, hope. If any couple deserves happiness it would be these two. Reading this story was very emotional and had me in tears in some parts. I found myself not wanting to put the book down until I had read the last page. This is a beautiful romance story that I highly recommend getting lost in for the afternoon. I look forward to reading more of the author’s books in the future.
Jade Hart is a devoted daughter.
She gave up her dreams to help her family out. Jade is very head strong so she does not have any friends. Instead of going to college like most young women do, she is working to two jobs just to make ends meet. She had a very good childhood but when she turned seventeen her whole world crashed down on her. She now feels like she is failure and that no one is there for her until one night she runs into the handsome Hudson. She feels a connection to him but she does not want her heart broken at another loss. Jade starts seeing Hudson around and starts to build a friendship. They start to move on to the next step in their relationship and then tragedy strikes again. She always pushes people away when things get to hard for her. Will Jade let Hudson have her heart or will she break his? Will Jade ever find peace and not feel like a failure?
Hudson has also been through a horrible tragedy that has changed his life. His life now is to focus on raising his young son. One night he is out and he sees this beautiful young woman that changes his life. He meets Jade but she is really timid and quiet. He feels an instant connection to Jade. He starts off slow so he does not scare her away. He quickly develops strong feelings for her. Hudson finally breaks open her shell and gets to know the real Jade. He wants to protect her and be a shoulder to lean on. Hudson is afraid of how his son will act with a new woman in his life but he feels like he can't live without Jade. Will Hudson be able to protect Jade from the crash or will she fall over the edge? Will Hudson find love again or will he always be alone with his son?
This book is a true masterpiece for the mind and soul. This story has it all unconditional love, deceit, and forgiveness. I fell in love with Jade immediately. She is very brave and strong on what she had to deal with at a young age. She is a broken soul that needed healing and she finally got it. Hudson is my new favorite male character this year. He is so sweet and genuine to Jade it will make your heart melt. I love how he a very devoted father to his young son. He would do anything for the people he loved. These characters chemistry is off the charts. You can feel it as you are reading the book. There is a couple of very steamy scenes that will make your toes curl. This story is full of raw and real emotions. This talented author made me laugh and also broke my heart. The ending is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. I would love it if we got to read Hudson’s side of this story. This is a must read. I'm excited to see what this talented author will write about next.
Jade Hart: strong minded, truly selfless, loving devoted daughter and yet she doesn’t believe in herself, calls her-self a failure. When will she see herself as others see her? When at seventeen her whole world was turned upside down, she had to rethink her own life and her closest relationships. She then made a decision and set herself on a path with high expectations and now she feels she is failing, no-one likes her because she is harsh and pushes people away. Her fears, hopes and desires are overwhelming her, drowning her, pushing her down further and further into herself. Can she escape the emotional baggage she is heaping upon herself? Can or will she let others in to help her take some of her burden away? Will anyone want to or even be able to stay the course with her without her bringing them down too?
Hudson: strong minded, has been through similar tragic events to Jade, so he knows what and how she is feeling. He is strong enough (despite carrying his own emotional baggage) to want to support her as she reels through a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The problem is – will she let him in enough to be able to lighten her burden? Will he be able to help her come to term with herself, the path she has chosen and the consequence of the things fate has thrown at her?
H M Sholander has written in the most sensitive way a story that has raw, honest emotions, real life events and the most complete characters you will ever find in a story. Jade’s character will make you smile and will also make your heart cry. Hudson’s character is also just as real and as raw. These two characters go through similar realistic events that impact on their lives leaving them feeling devastated and alone and yet they make it through, showing how resilient human beings can be if they never give up and fight back against all the blows that fate deals them. The importance of letting other people in to share burdens and help express emotions and come to terms with tragic events is also dealt with wisely and sensitively.
I loved the metaphors and allegories used by H M Sholander throughout the story to deepen the reader’s understanding of Jade and Hudson. This is Jade: ’We’re a perfect storm. Lightning and thunder seeking each other, chasing the other until they collide, creating something meant to strike fear into its witnesses. We’re a storm, and I’m hoping there’s a rainbow on the other side …’
The Truth About Falling is an amazing read. I now have to find and read other books by H M Sholander.
