AUTHOR: Jasinda Wilder
PUBLICATION DATE: March 14, 2014
My name is Colton Calloway. You’ve heard part of my story, but it turns out there’s more. My little girl, Kylie, is all grown up. Seventeen, beautiful, and talented, just like her mother. And just like Nell, my daughter seems to have fallen for a bad boy, one with a lot of darkness and a lot of secrets.

You thought you knew the whole story. You thought it was over. Happily ever after for everyone.
You were wrong.
My name is Oz Hyde, and you’ve never met me. I’m part of the story, too, but I’m an aside, a quick line or two you’d all but forgotten about. Well guess what? I’ve got my own story to tell.
Buckle up, ‘cause this is gonna be a hell of a bumpy ride.
On March 14th, the one year anniversary of Falling Into You, Jasinda Wilder surprised her faithful readers with an unexpected new release. we had all thought that the story was over with Falling Into Us, but to our wonderful surprise, Ms. Wilder decided to bring us more of the story. This surprise book is just as good as the first two!
In this book we jump ahead many years. Colt and Nell’s daughter is now basically grown and this is her story. We get to follow her as she falls for the bad boy, and faces the challenges that go along with that. We get to meet Oz, the “bad boy”, and learn more of his story. The story shows that looks can be deceiving and that a person’s looks don’t define them.
We get to catch up with Colt and Nell along the way. I loved seeing their love story continue so many years down the road. We also have a little time to catch up with Becca and Jason while getting to know their son. We also get a twist in the story that no one was expecting.
The story, like the others, includes a lot of music. I love books that have music in them. The book is also written entirely from a male point of view. We see the story through Oz and through Colt. It is a very interesting perspective. This is an awesome book and a great addition to an awesome series. Five big stars to Jasinda Wilder!!

WHERE IT ALL STARTED:
New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling novel.
I wasn’t always in love with Colton Calloway; I was in love with his younger brother, Kyle, first. Kyle was my first one true love, my first in every way. Then, one stormy August night, he died, and the person I was died with him. Colton didn’t teach me how to live. He didn’t heal the pain. He didn’t make it okay. He taught me how to hurt, how to not be okay, and, eventually, how to let go.
