Side note-I think the author is starting to forget her own characters names though because July's middle name in the very first book is Heaven, but in her own book Wes says her name as July Abigail Silver after he proposed. June's husband originally had the last name as Baristea in Until July and it changed in her own book to Barrister. (less)

My Review:
4.5 "Best Part of My Day" Stars

WOW! I honestly don't know why I'm speechless right now. ARR consistently delivers a love story that resonates with me. But there's really something special about Falling Fast. I didn't think it was possible, but I love these characters more than any of her previous books. They are quite simply, lovable, sweet, and endearing. Absolutely amazing!

Why did I wait so long to read this book! Colton was pure ARR Alpha male hotness and I wanted to devour him. It was an insta love story but still had a ton of intrigue and and that amazing sexual tension that makes a book ten times hotter. The story was an emotional and cute story with just the right amount of heat, and I can't wait to go back and re-read it already. I really hope there will be more to come from these characters soon.

descriptionI enjoyed this one. It was classic ARR. Well written and well paced. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. The sex scenes were hot. There was no angst or drama to speak of. No OM drama. Some OW drama (more about that in a bit). There was a nice array of interesting side characters, and both main characters were fairly likable. Colton was your typical ARR hero. Alpha. Hot. Sweet. All in from the start. Not much else to say about him, to be honest. He was a great hero. Gia was also

Audiobook review. Really enjoyed getting to know Colton and Gia. Colton’s family was just what they story needed to round out a good cast. The plot was solid with enough going on to keep it interesting without too much to cause me to lose focus. Some parts were a bit predictable but the ride was still fun. There is definitely some ex drama which I’m not a huge fan of but it was executed well.

These two were seriously hot together. There is no skimping on the sexy here. I will definitely be contin

Aurora Rose Reynolds did it for me, again! I really adored this book! It was touching, emotional, funny and sexy. I could have kept reading about Colton and Gia and the rest of the family. I can't imagine there was 1 person who read Until June that didn't want to know more about this couple.

Colton- he was awesome. Sexy, sweet, loved his family, former marine with a determination that made him even hotter. He saw Gia and he knew. I loved his patience with her and her situation. He put j

I have enjoyed all the books that I've read by this author, but I absolutely love the "Until" series, which also includes "Until Her" and "Until Him".

Apparently Colton and Gia where introduced in "Until June", though I have to be honest here and say that I didn't really remember this bit of info. All I cared about was getting to read a new Aurora Rose Reynolds book !!

So I can safely say...this book can be read as a stand alone...but why skip an awesome series ???

This was one of those books that was just ok for me. I really liked the background story with the heroine's grandmother and how she had to move to a small town. My rating probably would've been higher but I could not warm up to the hero at all. I have a hard time with heroes calling women, even their "psycho ex" a bitch or a c*nt. For me that's a huge turn off.

On the other hand, I'm sure this is just me, as there are a lot of five star rati

I really loved this. Both Colton and Gia were awesome. I really really loved Colton, he was super sweet and very alpha. The sex was great and it was completely safe. Could have gone without the ow drama but it never cause them any problems so it’s all good. Great epilogue’s as well. Also I’m super curious if maybe Tide or Carson will be getting books. Very interested in both of them

I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the Until series.
Maybe it's just because it's all kind of the same? It's nothing bad but this alpha didn't get my alpha fix. Maybe because it also was a bit of a fast one?
I really have a bad day, I know why don't you put your review off for now then? Because I only have bad days these days...

I love Aurora her writing style and her alpha's they will always have a special place in my heart! This one was also a bit on the scary side. Also a relating factor my

Hero loves heroine. Heroine loves hero. But Hero has a psycho bitch of an ex looming over him. The evil ex tries various tricks on the heroine so that she leave the Hero.

If you want to read a book on an evil ow trying to separate the hero heroine this.
If you are an Aurora Rose Reynolds this.
If you like slow and low angst (yeh I mean dull😏) this.

Thank God it's over!
It was 214 pages of suffering and my eyes are hurting from eye-rolling over the ridiculous story. It'll be impossible to find a book with more predictable plot, more overprotective hero or more innocent and virgin-y heroine who cries all the time. There is no chapter where she wouldn't cry in two situations at least.

Such a waste of my time.

I might have fallen fast, but I fell right into the perfect life.

I really enjoyed this book!

Colton and Gia were so cute together!

”I love you, Gia. Had no idea what love was until you, but I know now, and I know I’ll always cherish everything you’ve given to me.”

I liked their story and how smoothly it unfolded!

I love the “Until” series and her possessive heroes are my undoing but I enjoyed the slow pace this one had! It wasn’t all about “the heroine is the one, I wan

Talk about a BOOM!!! Colton and Gia’s story is HERE!!!

I’ve been dying for Colton and Gia’s story since we got a glimpse into them on Until June, so you can imagine my level of excitement when Aurora Rose Reynolds announced the release of Falling Fast! I’ll tell you, it was a *running around screaming and squealing* kind of enthusiasm, since it was one of my most anticipated books EVER!

Watching her go, I know I’m fucked, because I have never in all of my life wanted anything the way I want Gia C
I really enjoyed this. Out of all the books Aurora Rose Reynolds has released this year this is defintely my favorite. Recommend if you are looking for a low angst read with a sweet heroine and protective alpha.

“I want you to let me in. I want you to let me be there for you when you need me.”
“Colton,” I start, but he pulls his feet off the rail and stands.
Leaning over me, he wraps his hand around my jaw, forcing me to look into his eyes. “Let me in, Gia,” he urges, before bending at the waist and pressing his lips to my forehead.”

This was such a low in angst read, it was more uneventful than anything.

Recommended for anyone looking for a dramaless instalove with a lil bit of alpha, a lil bit of sweet.


Good ol' ARR with insta everything and OTT alpha hero. Unfortunately this is not working for me at the moment and I'm dropping out @ 52%.

I had mix feelings about this one. We needed some angst in here, which I thought was lacking.

This is a nice story, but it was pretty much the same as all the other books of this author. The Hero is a typical 'Aurora Rose Reynolds' hero. Colton falls in love with Gia the moment she comes at his bar for her job interview. He has a crazy ex. So you know how the story is going to be. Hero and heroine in love. But the crazy ex loves the Hero and she can't see them together.

It's a good read, but don

This was a sweet story. It certainly won't change your life, but it was fun and kept me reading until I finished it.
We have insta-love, drama, family, hot scenes, and sweet scenes (almost too sweet, that had me rolling my eyes, but whatever).

So... This is perfect if you are planning on spending the evening reading.

Hero may not want the OW, but the whole book is OW shitfeast! It is heavily majorly completely relied on the OW drama.
So it’s a no from me.

There’s also the fact the hero calls the OW a bitch or a cunt without any remorse and nonstop! Pretty sure so does his BFF! No matter what, it was quite unacceptable, if you’ve moved on, you need to leave the bitterness and name calling behind.

4 stars!

Aurora Rose Reynolds is a go-to author for sweet, easy, sexy and heartfelt love stories that are low-angst and leave me feeling good, and this book is exactly that. A quick and easy read that is low on drama with a gorgeous romance, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Gia Caro turns her life upside down when she learns that her beloved Grandmother is ill and she temporarily packs up her life in Chicago and heads to the small town of Ruby Falls in Tennessee to care for her.

A sweet story

I know that the characters are from Until June. I don't remember them from that book which means I'll have to do a re -read in the near future. The story was sweet, but also a little sad. Gia lives in Chicago and one day gets a call about her grandmother who she thought passed away 10 years ago. She has dementia and isn't doing so well. Apparently her stepmother concocted the story that her grandmother died two weeks after Gia's dad passed away so she could keep Gia with her because

Sweet, romantic, and completely smoking HOT, Falling Fast is classic ARR at her best!

This book captures everything, and more, we love about Aurora's writing. A sexy and total-alpha male, a gorgeous and wholesome female, and a unique story line that seeps into your heart with love and emotions. Falling Fast expresses that family means everything. It proves that people will go above and beyond anything for those they love. The difficult and heartbreaking circumst

I’d planned on writing an in-depth review, detailing all the ways for which this novel didn’t work for me. But, truth be told, I’ve already forgotten most of the book. A good thing, if you ask me.

What I do remember, however, is that it was poorly-written and in serious need of quality editing. The plot was weak and haphazardly thrown together. Predictable, even. The lack of originality was galling, as per usual. The characters were one-dimensional, cliché, and oh-so annoying. In other words, mor
