"This book is for anyone who has ever lost a loved one, for anyone who has woken up crying and gone to bed the same way, for anyone who has had to learn that it's okay to be not okay. Surviving isn't strength, it's continuing to breathe one day at a time; strength is learning to live despite the pain."
Nell was young, happy and full of love when she was with Kyle. There was no darkness in her world... that is until the night of the accident. After that nothing was the same, she wasn't the young vibrant girl she once used to be. She was broken. She was hurt. But worst of all she wouldn't let herself feel.
Colton was a thug who made his life better through music and working at his garage. He saw her, all of her. He saw the pain she refused to feel, the tears she refused to shed and most importantly he didn't try to fix her. Colton was broken too, but he knew that being broken didn't mean life didn't go on. It was okay to not be okay and somehow someway Colton was going to get that through to Nell.
Together they help each other feel, help each other love again...
This was a beautifully tragic love story. I couldn't prevent the tears as I read this book. Of course I giggled here and there at some parts too. This was a beautifully written story. I couldn't help but feel the pain and the love that Colton and Nell shared. It was so captivating, so magical.
Colton is the kind of character you easily fall in love with and Nell someone you seriously want to be there for.
"I'm not just falling in love with you, Nell. I'm falling into you. You're an ocean, and I'm falling in, drowning in the depths of who you are."
Falling Into Us will be released sometime in July 2013 and its safe to say it is on my TBR list.
Read this book, love this book, and remember that it's okay to not be okay sometimes.
