Falling for Colton (Falling, #5) by Jasinda Wilder [REVIEW]

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. 

4 Loving Colton Stars

Falling for Colton is like the prequel to Falling into You. I suggest you read Falling into You first so you get the feels right, but afterwards, read Falling for Colton.  Colton is the Hero in Falling into You, where he meets Nell.

Falling for Colton is a book for all COLTON fans. Those that love, crave and hunger for him. It tells his story prior to meeting Nell and oh what a story you will get. Colton is a tortured soul, a teenager with no direction, alone and just trying to survive.

You feel for him and you want to reach into the pages and hug him. This is not an easy book to read. There are no hearts and flowers in this book, but it’s a great story about Colton and how he becomes the man he is in Falling into You.

Colton is a senator’s son and with that comes with certain expectations. He’s bound to go to Ivy League college and do great things, but Colton has other plans in mind. With a reading disability he doesn’t exceed in academics but he dreams to own his own mechanic shop one day.

When you start the book you are hit with heavy stuff, you soon realize Colton has it rough as a kid. He can’t read well, he loves the ladies and he has major issues with his Daddy. He’s a kid with no support and love. Colton leaves his family to pursue his dreams, but the path to his dream is not easy.

The tale of Colton is filled with heartache, hardship and tough choices. Colton becomes a street fighter to earn easy cash and soon lands himself in a not so great crowd. As I was reading this book I kept on thinking when this kid would catch a break. He seems to be down in the dumps with one problem with the next to face. It was tough read that’s all I can say.

This book is not an overly romantic book, but to be honest I didn’t think it was. We all know he eventually meets with Nell, but what I wanted to know is who does he meet along the way? Soon he meets India and she seems like the girl to bring him out of his funk right? But he doesn’t meet India under the best conditions and yet again Colton faces more challenges.

This was a heavy book, but I really enjoyed Colton’s story. It made me appreciate him more and I wanted to go back and read Falling into You again just so I can get more of him!

Falling for Colton is the perfect read for all Falling into You and Colton fans. There were plenty of highs and lows, but tons of love for Colton.
