My name is Benjamin Dorsey. You know my mom and dad's story. You know Kylie's parents' story. You even know Kylie's story. You don't know mine, yet. You don't know what a broken heart is until you've loved someone your whole life, only to have her slip through your fingers because you waited too long. That's heartbreak. That's regret. And how do you live with that? How do you go through the motions when she's there as a reminder of what you lost, of what you could have had but were too damn chicken to go after? I couldn't. So I left. That's right, I ran away. I found myself across the continent, playing minor league football. I mean, at least I still had football, right? Nope. That got taken away from me too. A career-ending injury left me down-and-out, scraping the bottom of the barrel, hating myself and hating life. And then I met Cheyenne Leveaux, my physical therapist, who became my one and only friend, the one bright light in the darkness of my messed up life. But of course nothing is ever simple, or easy. Tragedy struck, and the rug was swept out from under me yet again, and this time the guilt, the doubt, the secrets, and the old heartbreak may threaten my one chance at true happiness, my one shot at my own happily ever after.
I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Oh my poor heart! Being a fan of Jasinda and this series I kind of knew going in that my heart would take a beating. And it did. And I loved it.
Having “read” this as an Audible I also loved the added element of surprise. Reason being, when I read I tend to let my eyes wander down the page and read ahead of where I actually am in the story. I liked not being able to do that here because I was able to experience every shock, twist, and moment of heartbreak as it happened. I don’t even know where to begin; Falling Away was FULL of hurt and heartache; feelings of guilt and regret, but best of all: healing. Ben and Echo made my chest hurt! They were both so broken and lost until a sad twist of fate brought them together— even though that “twist” made me cry— I was so happy it happened! I loved seeing them be there for each other when they needed it most, and I loved seeing Ben not give up on Echo when she needed him most. Poor Echo was a bit of a hot mess, but Ben NEVER gave up on her and never let her give up on herself. It makes me smile and my heart beat faster thinking about how he loves her *sigh*. This was such a great conclusion to this series and, while I’m sad it’s over, I’m so glad it’s one that I got to experience.
