Falling for Colton (Falling #5) by Jasinda Wilder: Review

Blurb:

I wasn’t always in love with Nell Hawthorne; I was in love with a girl named India, before i ever met Nell. India? She was my first love, the girl who made me want to be better than my past, better than the blood and violence.

Live by the sword, die by the sword, that’s what they say, right? It should have been me, that day. But it was’t. It was her. And that changed me. Sent me down an even darker path than i’d been on before.

Until i met her. Nell Hawthorne. The girl who changed everything.

You know that story. But what you don’t know is everything that led up to that rainy day under a tree, at a funeral.

Review by Michelle:

It is hard to do something that could really be considered a prequel when your characters are not only known and loved, but also the characters that started it all, the characters that brought even more wonderful characters into your reader's lives, and the creators of offspring that lovers of the series fell just as hard for as the parents. Let's be honest, nobody really wants to see Colton Calloway with anyone but Nell Hawthorne. Yet, the way in which Jasinda Wilder tells Falling For Colton, the compelling, heartbreaking nature of the story, the fact that Nell and Kyle were just kids when Colt left home, along with the instant familiarity and sense of purpose felt when Nell and Colt see each other again after that fateful tree falls makes Falling For Colton not only palatable, but actually the perfect ending/beginning to a truly epic love story.

Of course I had a good idea of Colt's life before Nell. Turns out, I didn't really know the half of the hardship, the pain, the struggle, the despair, the destitution, the tragedy, and the guilt that young Colt endured. Hard, gritty, edgy, and intense, Colton's story is a difficult one to experience. A hard knock life with enough heartache to last two lifetimes in the span of just a handful of years. While the mettle, the tenacity, and the sheer power of will that he demonstrates during these arduous years instills a whole new level of devotion and respect for the man.

Incredibly fast paced, there is never a dull moment, never a second when you are not fully immersed in Colt's story, never a time when you can step away without your mind lingering on or wandering back to this tempestuous story. Then comes that powerful moment when Nell and Colt meet again under the big oak tree. The atmosphere is so thick with tension, possibility, and promise it makes your knees weak and your heart ache. From pulse racing to heart pounding, tear jerking to heart clenching there are feels of every kind around every turn.

Falling For Colton is a breathtaking story of determination and fortitude, love and loss, grief and acceptance, coping and healing, hopes and dreams. My heart broke, it raced, it fluttered, and it flew for Colt along this journey leading us to the man we love, the couple we adore, and the happily ever after that could not be more well deserved.
