4.5 -- Princess -- stars

If you have read Waiting to Breathe, then you already know Finn and Cora and you also have been dying to read their story. I would start with Waiting to Breathe, because there are a few important spoilers in this book and you already get to know Finn and Cora. There has been a tension between them and I wanted to see them together.

I loved this story and the writing. Finn and Cora are amazing characters. Finn is smart, sweet, loving, strong, determined and caring. He’s a g

3.5 stars for this advanced reader copy that I received voluntarily.

I loved Finn & Cora from book one BUT I didn't expect them to be so damn stubborn.

They had a drunken one night stand; afterwards Finn wanted more and Cora wasn't ready for a relationship. But they couldn't stay away from each other. Cora's attitude was driving me crazy but when I finally found out the reason why she's against relationships I felt sorry for her.

Finn was his typical lovable self. He really tried to just keep it a

Waiting to Fall by Alyson Reynolds a sublime Five-star read. This is the second book in the waiting duet, and follows on from Waiting to Breathe, so you would have huge spoilers if you read this book without the first as we see more of Finn and Cora in this book but we also keep up to date with Finns twin sister Olivia and her now fiancé Nate. This book follow the pace of the last, and continues with a great story that will have your heart breaking and soaring in equal measures, just like the fi ...more

I gave this book 4 stars!!!

This book is Finn and Cora story. We first meet these two characters in Waiting to Breath. All though this book is a standalone, I think you should read Waiting to Breath where you can see the characters as a brother and best friend to Olivia and Nate.

Finn is Olivia's twin brother and Cora is her best friend. Finn is sexy as sin and is smart as hell. Finn father wants him to take over the business after he graduates. Finn has decided to double major and his work load

Waiting to Fall by Alyson Reynolds is book two of the Waiting Duet.

I am so glad I don’t have to choose which book or character is my favorite since both of the books in this duet are great!

While the first book was about Olivia, Waiting to Fall is about her twin brother Finn and their best friend Cora. Both Cora and Finn are players. They love the opposite sex and they love having sex. When they finally hook up, it’s all blamed on a drunken one-night stand. But then feelings start to get involv

Waiting to Fall was a great 5 star read.
I was super excited to get to read Cora and Finn’s story.

I loved Finn from the first book Waiting to Breathe, he was so supportive and strong for his sister. Your heart just melted over him. After a tequila night and some bad decisions, he now has an issue that he needs to deal with, he has fallen for his sister’s best friend Cora.

Cora is trying to fight her feelings for Finn beca

I really enjoyed Finn and Cora's story. I had some reservations going in, since I wasn't a huge fan of Waiting to Breathe. But I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the banter back and forth between Finn and Cora. I adored how Finn was so protective of Cora and how he valued his friendship with her.

I want to be the noise for you.

I was happy that we got to see glimpses into Nate and Olivia's lives and see Nate's family, as well. That was a sweet add-on I wasn't expecting. I can't believe Nate and O

Finn Crawford never expected his life to change due to a dare. But now due to that dare he is now making the mistake of taking things too far with his and twin sisters best friend Cora. But he never expected that his one night stand would turn into multiple times let alone, fighting off an attraction that he never expected to get.

Cora Donovan doesn’t do relationships and doesn’t want one either especially when it comes down to Finn who has been there when she needed him the most, but now a spark

Waiting to Fall: Book 2 of the Waiting Duet by Alyson Reynolds is the second book in the Waiting Duet series. This story can be read as a stand alone but it would be beneficial to you if you read the first one in order to get some of the background information on some of the characters. It is always enjoyable getting to see what happens to the characters from the previous stories and you will find that in here. This story will make you laugh, cry and get angry in a part.

This book is the second in the duet series. You could read Waiting to Fall as a stand alone, but you would get more out of it if you read Waiting to Breathe first. This book will have you laughing, crying, hopeful, cheering for them to see what's right in front of them and praying for healing. Some sensitive issues are addressed in this book and leave you wanting to fiercely protect the characters like you would a best friend. It's a book about fr

Another book from this superb author and I'm on cloud nine. I know that I say this all the time but it's the truth. I love this girl beyond words and I'm so happy that her books are a success, she deserves it.
Alyson Reynolds has a simple yet very intense writing that will melt your hearts. She's truth to her convictions and she can make you laugh in a sec and melt you into tears in the other with a flick of a page. Oh boy what a ride it is to read her books. She's amazing.

Cora, attending college and adjusting to a new roommate since her best friend, Olivia moved in with her boyfriend, doesn't want any sort of relationship since dealing with a seriously bad break up with her ex. She gets along with everybody, and wouldn't know what to do without her friends.

Waiting to Fall is book two in the Waiting Duet by Alyson Reynolds. I didn't enjoy this book as much as Waiting to Breathe, but it was still good. 5 star book, with solid story line, good characters and I loved the writing style. The book tells the story of Finn and Cora, and how their friendship turns into a relationship. You don't HAVE to read book 1, but I recommend it, as the characters overlap and it gives a better history and background story. The book alternates between Cora and Finn's po ...more

I LOVED THIS BOOK! I was my favorite out of the duet because I think I liked the characters stories more in this book and the fact that the main characters from book #1 got more added on to their story! With that being said, I think it is important for you to read Waiting to Breathe (book #1) BEFORE this one!!!

Waiting to Fall is the second book in the Waiting Duet series by Alyson Reynolds. It is very possible to read this book as a standalone but having read the first book in this series I would recommend reading it first as I feel you get more from Finn and Cora’s background. I also think that after I finished the first book I couldn’t wait to get the story of these two characters and I probably enjoyed it more!

Waiting to Fall follows on from Waiting to Breathe and Olivia and Nate’s story continues in the background of this book. They are still very much in love and going strong which brings a smile to my face whenever Finn sees or hears anything remotely about their sex life.

Finn and Cora are our main characters in this story. As much as they give it to each other and there is always tension between the two, they are best friends. I loved the way they were with each other and could not wait to see w

We first met Finn and Cora in Waiting to Breathe which is the story of Finn’s twin sister Olivia. Olivia, Finn and Cora all grew up together, have been best friends for as long as they remember and now they are away at college so things are changing.

Have you ever had one of those nights that you drank too much, danced a little too hard, laughed a little too loud and woke up next to your best friend? No? Well good for you (plea

Waiting to Fall by Alyson Reynolds is book two in The Waiting Duet. In book one we read about Olivia and Nate. In book two we are given a deeper look into the life of Finn, Olivia's twin brother. I'd recommend reading the first and then the second because you will see Finns compassionate side and how much he loves his sister.

Finn Crawford is not known for his relationships. But he is known for a slew of women in his bed. Aside from that, he is loyal to a fault and would do anything for his twin

This is book two in the Waiting Duet and while you should read book one to feel more connected to this story, I actually believe if you read these as standalones you would still enjoy the books. Book one is about Nate and Olivia and we see Finn and Cora as well; however, while we still see all characters in book two, this is about Finn and Cora. I loved that we got to see all of them cause you kinda fall in love with all of them and you feel as if you apart of their college lives.

I could not wait to read Finn Crawford's story after reading the first book in this duet, Waiting to Breathe – Olivia's twin brother needed his own story.
