Oh this story and the feels! This story touched on something very personal to me, so it effected me in a way it may not effect the average reader. That being said, I truly enjoyed this story!

After discovering her husband has been cheating on her, Jillian divorces him and moves back to Montana. Jillian’s marriage was never perfect, he was verbally abuse and ignored her, in addition to their fertility problems, but when she learns he and his new wife are pregnant it’s the last straw.

Jillian and Zach had a one night stand six months ago where Jillian woke up alone and immediately flew back to LA. Now she's back in town and her and Zach have avoided awkwardness. But now Zach wants to take a shot at a relationship, but with all of his baggage from being in the army and the fact that he needs to keep a secure environment for his son might get in the way of their happiness.

To be honest, I didn't like this book as much as I was hoping I would. Loving Cara was a sol

Falling for Jillian is the third book in the Love Under the Big Sky series and my favorite of the series.

Jillian and Zack had a one night stand months ago but because of crossed wires they have been avoiding each other ever since, now thanks to a snow storm and a broken furnace Zack come's to Jill's rescue and takes her to the Ranch to stay warm.

Spending time with each other and time with Seth Zack's 12 year old son, they quickly fall for each other again and are soon hotting up the bed sheets

5 stars!

My favourite of the series. Friends to lovers, second chance, hot, steamy, dirty talker, sweet and romantic! Tick tick tick!
I loved Jillian and Zack's story. They had baggage, but they overcame it, eventually. From a misunderstanding from a one night stand, they tried to avoid each other. But you can only fight it for so long. And the giving on part, aaahhh! Zack had a deliciously dirty mouth, which surprised me. Alpha male and possessive. Great dad to Seth. Jillian was strong, stubborn

I love Kristen Proby, I don’t think there has been a book that she has written that I haven’t at least fallen a little bit in love with. Even the characters that you don’t 100% warm too, still always have a little something about them that you can get onboard with.

Falling For Jillian is a tender story about finding love and believing in the magic of a second chance at happiness.

They shared a night of passion once but were both terrified of the intensity of the experience, so they both bailed and now every time they run into each other, which is o

4 I fell for Jillain (AND ZACH) STARS

Zach and Jillian


You’re mine.
You belong on the ranch with Seth and me,
and I’m never letting you go ever again.
I’ll screw up... I will make mistakes,
but you have to know that of every person
that drifts in and out of your life,
no one will ever love you the way I do.


I adore this series and am no stranger to exposure of Kristen Proby's talent! I never give it much thought and click that to read button. I was not disappointed with the novel. FINALLY ZACH

Among the three books, Falling for Jillian is my favorite. Zack King and Jillian Sullivan have a natural spark (not that the previous couples don't have one). The sexual tension between them oozed and they're just so romantic. Both of them have mental baggage and had been through terrible relationships. Their relationship is imperfect as well but I love how they managed themselves and the best part Zack had to grovel his way to Jillian's heart. He said hurtful things about her and the MAN.

First and foremost, I absolute adore and love Kristen Proby’s books. She has a way of making her readers feel and enjoy those butterfly feelings of love. And in her newest release, Falling For Jillian, the third book of Love Under The Big Sky Series, Ms. Proby has manage to capture the hearts of her readers once again with a book that is filled with love, family, friendship, and second chances.

Jillian is returning home after her failed marriage. Life in LA is a far cry from the calm of Montana, but after her marriage falls apart due to her cheating ex; home is exactly where Jillian needs to be. Months prior she shared an incredible night with Zach, but it all ended the next morning. Now months later she can’t stop the way her body reacts to his.

Zach headed off to the military as a way to make a life for his family, when a unplanned baby comes along. Leaving Seth behind was a struggle
4.5 "Sugar" Stars for the Story and 5 "Fantastic Performers" Stars for the Narration!

Falling for Jillian is a gripping story about second chances, and how love heals all wounds. I loved the attention in this story not only to the couple, but also to how their relationship affected the hero's 12 year-old son. It's funny, in the romance genre there seems to be a glut of billionaires, powerful CEOs, rock stars, athletes, etc; but it's been a while since I've read an honest to good love story betwe

Another amazing book by Kristen Proby! Seriously, I love the characters she writes and she never disappoints me! This story is told from dual pov's and can be read as a standalone.

Falling for Jillian follows the story of Jillian and Zach. Jillian has just moved back home after ending her marriage. She's trying desperately to move on with her life. However, moving on isn't easy, especially when she finds out that not only has her ex remarried, but also gotten his new wife pregnant; something Jill

In my review of Loving Cara, book 1 in the Love Under the Big Sky series, I commented that the book contained one of the best scenes ever for a secondary character; well that 4th of July scene with Zack King so had me wanting his happy and Ms. Proby did not disappoint. I was lost in this book and now THIS is my new favorite Kristen Proby book!

Falling for Jillian turned out to be yet another awesome story in this series. Zach and Jillian had both been through relationship nightmares and considered themselves to have a lot of baggage. Jillian was a strong, yet vulnerable heroine. She fell for Zach and his preteen son Seth. I loved her interaction with Seth. So heartwarming. When life throws them a curve ball, Zach reacts poorly and hurts Jillian. I appreciate that he tried hard to apologize, I also appreciate that Jillian didn't make i ...more

Jillian is back in Montana after finding out her cheating ex-husband is having the baby she always wanted with his new wife. But that means she's back in Zach's sphere, especially since her best friends and sister-from another-mother, is living with and engaged to Zach's twin brother, Josh.

No, just no.
Look, I get that Zack has some previous trauma about women lying to him but If he truly loved Jill he would've accepted the baby the first time she told him. Sure, she could've lied but he should've stayed and listen to her because that baby is his too. The fact that he accepted Kensi when she was pregnant but he didn't love her and wouldn't accept Jill the woman he loves makes me really mad.
I'm sorry if I'm being harsh but the worst thing an MC can do is not accept their baby and

Single dad Zack has been through a lot - he's served in the military and went to war. While he was away, his ex-wife was shacking up with guys who would hit his son. When he moves home to the ranch and has custody of his son, Seth, his priority is being a good dad. Jilly had a bad marriage, tried for years to get pregnant and couldn't. One day, she c ...more

I did really like this one. I was nervous that the time apart would bug me in that it was a result of miscommunication and being stupid/stubborn. But, with their personalities, it worked. I would have liked to get to know Zach better. Felt like his POV was just focused on conversations with Jill. Not a lot of deep thought or perspective. It was pretty sweet. Had some drama and angst. No cheating!

Overall, very enjoyable!

This is a great addition to the series and definitely my favorite. Dark, Sexy and Charming Zach and spunky Jillian were great together. Their story is low in angst (Yay!) and high on sexy moments and romance. Great to see everyone from the prior stories, especially Seth.
Coffee dates with Falling for Jillian

Kristen Proby is a new to me author and I decided to venture into this contemporary on audio. It was quite the experience with its dual pov’s and heated romance.

First date: Jillian has decided to return home to Montana. She is recovering from a failed marriage and the realization that she will never be a mother.  However, she is happy to be back among friends and closer to her brother. I quickly learn that Jillian had a one-night stand with Zach, her best fri

Falling for Jillian is Book 3 in the Love Under the Big Sky series. This book is a fast read. The narrative gets to the point pretty quickly. Kristen Proby has a very easy writing style that is straightforward and engaging. I enjoyed the interaction between the two characters. Their relationship felt sweet. The drama doesn't take a deep dive, maybe because although I liked the characters, I did feel not invested in them. I thi

I’m not going to lie: I got a nasty surprise when I started reading this book and discovered it was written in first person, present tense! It’s something pretty inescapable in current fiction for young readers, but it’s not something I would ever have expected to find in an adult contemporary romance.

Clearly Kristen Proby is a good writer. I enjoyed her characters and the very “real” feel they had about them. This is contemporary romance with genuinely contemporary ch
