Letting go of someone you love is never easy, knowing that you can’t have them, but then you still have that tiny bit of hope that they will come to you. Unfortunately, that tiny bit of hope is what makes everything so difficult.
Time – is the very one thing in this world that we can never get back. No matter what we do, we can only either do the right thing next time, or we have no choice but to regret what we have done and move forward.
While I was reading Falling Under, I already felt Ben’s pain, his regrets and his heart-ache in loving his best friend Kylie. Unfortunately, Kylie already found her love, so Ben needs to stay away from her and move on with his life. Falling Away is the story of Ben and Echo who have met under an unnatural circumstances. Both have been dealing with their own struggles but with each other, they have found a way to somehow escape the reality of life. But when the time comes to face the reality, it hit them hard. Ben, to be with Echo, he must go back to the place he left, and Echo, scared that with her past, she cannot be with Ben.
I love this story in as much as I loved the first book of the series – Falling Into You. Both stories have delivered the emotions that are needed in the story. I may not agree with some of the ways the characters in this series did to cope with these emotions, but in reality of life, it does happen. This series is an eye opener, that problems may not be solved easily, it cannot be escaped, neither can be ignored, but no matter how difficult, it must be faced.
This series has shown different kinds of loss, different ways to cope and different ways to move on. All four stories are very heart-warming, truly emotional, hot, sexy and yet totally consuming.
Rating: 4 stars
Point of View: Ben and Echo
Falling Away is the fourth and final book of the ‘Falling‘ series, with Falling Into You as the first one with the story of Kylie’s parents – Nell and Colton , Falling Into Us as the second book with the story of Ben’s parents – Becca and Jason and Falling Under as the story of Kylie and Oz. All books can be read as a stand-alone, but to get the full impact of the series, I suggest to read them in order.
