Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.
Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.
After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
In the mood for some fun, sweet and sexy romance? Falling Fast is the perfect ARR book.
After years apart, Gia finally gets to see her grandmother again, only to find her seriously ill. Being the sweetheart that she is, she immediately moves to her late mother’s hometown to take care of her grandma.
The magic of a small town lands her a job at a bar owned by Colton’s family and their attraction is instantaneous. Although Gia acknowledges the pull, she is in no place to start a relationship. Luckily for her, Colton is not going to give her much of an option.
With suspicious things going on, the mother of crazy exes trying to come between them and a saddening prognosis for Gia’s grandma, they have a lot to overcome.
Gia was incredibly sweet and caring, a firm avoider of conflict and funny. She loved her job teaching little kids, but after a not exactly difficult but emotionally challenging childhood, she had some issues to overcome.
Colton was alpha, sexy and bossy. I would have loved for him to be a bit less considerate of Gia’s predicaments and gone full throttle in pursuit, but I feel like I can’t really complain about it. He was being thoughtful after all. I guess I missed the whole “I-moved-you-in-without-you-even-realizing-it-after-2-hours-of-knowing-each-other” OTT-ness I’m used to in Ms. Reynolds books.
There was a well of possibilities to be explored in this book that could have made it an exceptional read for me, and in some cases, it felt like missed opportunities. For example, and I can’t quite believe I’m saying this, the whole Colton’s crazy-ex topic could have been expanded on. With the way it unraveled it felt kind of absurd, but done a little bit differently it could have been one epic crazy-ex antagonist.
Even with some shortcomings, I completely engaged with the story and enjoyed reading Falling Fast. It has some action, suspense and a lovely set up for future stories which I can’t wait to get to read. As ever, ARR is an insta-buy for me, as I know I’ll be in for a fun, sweet and fluffy read that will have me smiling like a dork.
