NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.
The day I lost my best friend was the day I realized that I’d been living in the past. I’ve tried to find a way to heal, to mend that break. Somehow, I came through it partially whole. But I know I couldn’t have done that without Aiden Connolly. The problem is, he once loved my best friend. And now she’s gone, and I refuse to be in that shadow, or worse, a replacement for someone we both loved.
I left them all behind. My brother. My family. My best friend. And her. Only Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to me. But before I can make sure she knows, I need to figure out exactly what that is.
I was a bit hesitant to start on Falling With You. Over two years ago I read her first book of the Montgomery Ink series (Delicate Ink) and it was a bit mweh. It was not a terrible book, but the fact that I didn’t check out any of her other Ink books, means I was not really into it. But since the blurb of Falling With You got me curious I decided to give it a go. And yeah, I enjoyed the story of Aiden and Sienna. Sienna’s best friend and ex of Aiden has ended her life. And while both Sienna and Aiden are still grieving her loss, they can’t deny their mutual attraction. But Sienna doesn’t want to feel like a replacement for Allison.
And then Sienna is attacked outside the bar where Aiden and his brothers work. And they both realize, they should live in the moment, because otherwise, life just passes you by.
It is a wonderful story about loss, tragedy, friends to lovers and moving on. But I just didn’t blow me off my socks. Therefore three out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
