I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

Falling Under

Falling Under - Gwen Hayes I was hoping to like this more than I did. I had a hard time with this as soon as I hit the first scene with Haden and his 'Get her to hate me' scheme was hatched. This right here is what ruined the book for me. I'd rather have seen it be about him trying to seduce Theia instead. But it wasn't like that. I've heard references from Hades and Persephone to this story and while I did kind of see it, I thought it was a poor imitation if that was it.

I liked the idea behind it. The main story (not the character crap I kept rolling my eyes at) was what got me through to the end. I thought the premise was very promising and even had a few good twists and turns here and there. But the more I saw Haden resist his feelings for Theia, the more I was turned off of the book.

I won't be continuing this series. I do, however, plan to give this author another chance, because she's a good writer. She just happened to write a story I can't back. But this book wasn't for me. It still might be for you though. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it, whether you loved it or hated it.
