“This moves to my #1 standalone this year, and definitely goes on my favorite book list! A.L. Jackson’s writing is so gripping and deep…I need you to run to this book & read it. You have no idea what you’re in for.”
-Queen of the Pages

“Falling into You is another masterful heartwrenching story by AL Jackson. When I finished it I wished I could re-read it. Richard and Violets' redemptive journey of love is perfection.”

AL Jackson’s signature prose, engaging characters, and masterful storytelling shine ever so brightly in this beautiful story of love, loss, and beating the odds in search of happiness.

Oh my gawd, this book had my stomach in knots, my heart in a vice grip, and my nerves on edge. The angst! The secrets! The lies! It was everything!! The deceit and unfortunate circumstances that tore these two apart was devastating, but made their love story that much more powerful. Despite all the heartache, secre

A.L Jackson has an unique way of tell a story.
She writes her books in a beautiful lyrical pace, with many poetic thoughts, metaphors and analogies.
This book wasn't an easy read to me, but it also was one that I couldn't not read either.

This book is about Violet and Richard.
At the beginning of the story they're not together, but from the very first reunion, after six years apart, you can say that love and lust isn't their issue.
I was craving their connection!

Now if you've read literally any book by this author, then you already know she has the ability to reach into the depths of your soul and wring havoc on all your emotions. But this book? This book was simply on a whole other level. Not only for the very relevant and poignant subjec

A.L Jackson delivered all the angst with this story and I wasn't prepared for it. There was a ton going on with Richard and Violet, their past, and the band and it all came together perfectly in my opinion. From the start I was intrigued about what had happened to drive Richard away from Violet and as I continued to read I was sucked more and more into their story the more I found out. There was some mystery thrown in too with things that had happened with the band

“My moonflower in the darkest night. You will always be the song of soul”

AHHHHHHH I am so grateful that I’ve never come across a book written by A.L. Jackson that I haven’t enjoyed.
Falling into You was so good. 
It’s one of those “It makes my heart hurt” kind of good.
Here I am once again sounding like a broken record but here I go again, I do love a second chance romance, I am also a sucker for a single parent (romance book) and don’t even get me started on a rock star romance…. Falling into

What a perfect way to describe Richard and Violet’s story. Because A.L. Jackson has truly outdone herself! In this third installment to her Falling Stars Series, she has proven—once again—that she is, indeed, the consummate storyteller!! From start to finish, I was swept away in the crazy whirlwind that defines this couple’s story. And, oh, what a whirlwind it is!! I delighted in the joys, wept with the sorrows, and hung on tight with every twist and turn. I rode the waves that

OMG...this story really got me...the whole time I thought Richard was hiding something totally different and I couldn't connect with him. I loved Violet and her character...and the more I read...the more I was dreading the truth coming out and then not being happy or satisfied with the story. 🥺

But as I read the last part of the book, everything turned around and I was happy as a clam. I see how everything tied together and relief poured out of me.

"I think you might be every line I've ever written. Interwoven in every song. There before I even knew you existed."

Falling into You was such a great second-chance contemporary romance. The characters were amazing and I could really feel the strong love and connection between Richard and Violet. We already met Richard Ramsey in the previous books, but Violet was new but I loved her immediately. She was strong, loyal, protective, and just so nice.

My heart. Honestly, it is a mess. The way that Jackson can convey emotions through words is one of the most beautiful works of art that I have ever read in my life. This book will hit you so hard that you will not know if you want to cry, swoon, laugh or rage. There are so many layers to this story that has been intertwined through this whole series, that it will honestly leave you speechless and bumbling to write a review like I am right now.

I had so much anticipation built up for Richard and Violet’s second chance love story and really wanted to devour it, but once I started reading I decided to savor it instead. Trust me it truly needs to be savored. I fell hopelessly in love with Richard and and Violet and was so lost in their story and their emotions, the highs and the lows, and loving every single moment of it! Th ...more

GAH, does A.L. Jackson know how to write romance! Falling into You was pure second chance romance PERFECTION, and has honestly been the BEST and my FAVORITE novel from A.L. Jackson to date!

A.L. Jackson truly outdid herself with Richard and Violet’s epic, addicting, engaging, and breathtakingly beautiful, sexy, and swoon-worthy love story, and I was completely riveted from start to finish. She kept me guessing at every turn and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The plot h

In the third installment to the Falling Stars Series, Richard and Violet share a heart-wrenching and passionate second chance romance overflowing with angst, mystery and suspense.

The last six years of Richard Ramsey's life has been built on lies, guilt, regrets, anger, pain, and vengeance.

While he and his band, Carolina George are beginning to celebrate success, he cannot forget that he has lost the most important thing to him for reasons he could not share.

I can never get enough of A.L. Jackson’s books! EVERY SINGLE TIME, she delivers the most heartfelt love stories with her elegant, lyrical prose.

Falling into You is the third interconnected stand-alone in the Falling Stars series, featuring the rockstar/small town/second chance romance between Richard & Violet. Richard made sacrifices to get him & his band to where they are today, but there were more important reasons that in turn cost him everything. He left her behind but never sto

I'm so disappointed. The way the book was written was so frustrating with the same repeating angst descriptions and half sentences. I couldn't get into the characters and the drama dragged on FOREVER. I mean USE YOUR WORDS. These characters kept so many secrets it was painful to get through. I found myself skimming the 2nd half of the book just to get to the end. I hope the next one in the series isn't so heavy and painful to get through. ...more

Falling into You is another beautiful, poetic masterpiece of words by A.L. Jackson. This book pulled at every one of my heartstrings from start to finish. There is heartbreak, joy, pain and I felt it all, every last emotion, every last squeeze of my heart as these two found there way back to one another. A truly beautiful story of redemption and forgiveness.

Violet is spitfire. She holds a lot of pain in her heart about her past but she is pushing through and is an incredible mom to Daisy

An emotionally heart-squeezing second chance romance that left me breathless at times. A.L. Jackson brings her everything in this story. I was held prisoner by the poetic words, the loss, the love and redemption.
Richard and Violets story is a must read!
One hundred percent perfection.

Ok so I did not enjoy this as much as I did the previous book. I’m a reader that needs more dialogue to be engaged in a story and not let my mind wonder from the story or just miss out on what’s happening bc I need more than 1-2 sentences between H/h and truthfully between the characters in general.

I need paragraph of a dialogue in each chapter, too much inner monologue without banter it’s not for me.

Hopefully this will be remedied in the upcoming books.

Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

If you aren’t reading A.L. Jackson’s Falling into You, then you are not living. It’s really quite simple. This is the fourth book in her Falling Stars series, and like its predecessors, is an angst-driven, beautifully drawn story of second chances. Page after page finds gorgeous prose, a quickened heart-beat of a story, and a couple so fated for each other that you cannot breathe deeply until their happy ending is wrought on the page. That’s really the essence of Jackson

A. L. Jackson's words always have this poetic quality that makes my soul sing and hum. And they are also powerful and bring the most destructive emotions. Falling Into You was such a lyrical and decadent love story with ability to wreck my heart with magical words.

Richard and Violet had one of those epic, written in the stars and life changing kind of love. But then Richard got entangled with something sinister, something evil and something terrible. And he had to leave without an explanation. V

5 amor-amor-amor stars! A story brimming with emotion, and seething with desire and desperation. This author's words are sheer poetry.

"Tell me it's true. Tell me you still love me because I'm done pretending like I don't need you."

Richard Ramsey and Violet Marin fell in deep, passionate, all-consuming love very fast. He was on his way to rock stardom and she was going to be by his side every step of the way. Until she wasn't. Until he completely shattered her heart. And, his own.
