Review: Fall by Kristen Callihan

October 24, 2018

The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways. 

 

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip. 

 

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands. 

 

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor. 

 

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room. 

 

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun. 

 

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything. 

 

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.

*** 3 Star Review ***

 

I have been struggling with this review. I liked this book, but at the same time, I didn't like this book. 

 

I adored the story itself. The opening of the book had me hooked. It was cute and made me giggle. I enjoyed the characters' journey of themselves and together simultaneously. It was endearing to read.

 

The characters separately, I liked. They both have great personalities to where I could not like them. However, I didn't feel the chemistry between them. I would think I would since the book went on forever. Unfortunately, I just wasn't jiving with the chemistry part. They felt like friends all of the way through instead of a budding romance.

 

What exactly didn't I like? There was a lot of unnecessary in this book. The book was stretched out so much, I almost gave up. The story could have had the same, if not better, effect if it were cut in half. There was too much filler between "scenes". I found myself just wanting to skip to the end many times. I found myself thinking I would LOVE this book without all of the filler.

 

Overall, after taking out the extra stuff, this is a good book. It's a sweet story. I do see many liking this story, if not loving it. I am just hanging out in the middle on this one.
