Fear of Falling →

fear of falling

Rating: 4.3 Cups of Coffee

Goodreads’ Book Description:

I can’t remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn’t bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I’ve run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn’t run anymore.

He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn’t the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn’t the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just…him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.

My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.

“Don’t worry,” he smiled, pulling me into the hard warmth of his chest. “I’ve got you. I’ll always catch you when you fall.”

And just like that, Blaine had staked his claim on the untouched part of me that no living soul had ever moved. He had captured every fear, every reservation, and crushed them in the palm of his inked hand.

Author Disclaimer: Abuse is real- verbal, emotional, physical and sexual. It takes place all around us; it doesn’t discriminate against race or gender, wealth or poverty. It affects us all- those of us who’ve had to live through it, or watch it happen, even those of us who’ve only heard about it. We are all affected. We are all forever changed.

This is not a story for the faint of heart; this is the story of one woman’s very real struggle through a world against her, the people who hurt her, her real life demons and the people who showed her that every gray sky, no matter how dark, has a sun waiting to break through.

Gabrielle’s Experience:

Holy Macaroni and cheese!!!!!!

My fellow book lovers, if you have a fear of falling in love with a new book character that will shatter your heart and bring you tears of joy, DO NOT PICK UP THIS BOOK.

I fell.

Fell hard.

Like, flat on my face.

Kamilla Duvall is a product of her past. Fear controls her every move & every emotion. At least until Blaine Jacobs walks into her life.

Correction: that is until Kami walks into Blaine’s bar, causing their lives to change.

Blaine Daniel Jacobs is a fixer. Damaged girls are a product of his past. That’s until he meets a damaged girl that turns his fixing into loving.

In Fear of Falling, Blaine was the only man Kami could show both her inside and outside scars to. When she was with him, all her insecurities didn’t exist. He made her feel whole. He made her feel loved. His voice gave her butterflies. Actually, it turned her into a butterfly, letting her fly away from her fears. Blaine Daniel Jacobs is just a whole lot of beautiful.

Ladies –my single and ready to mingle reader friends—, let’s all say a little prayer tonight for a man like that to walk into our lives and never let us go. The way Blaine never let Kami go.

How can Kami trust again?

How can Blaine save Kami without getting hurt again?

I know the answer to these questions. You’ll have to one-click and read Fear of Falling to find out ;)
