One life-changing conversation in the dark lit with high voltage attraction
The unexpected hits me and Violet like a bolt of lightning right when we need each other the most.

I may be a rockstar on the rise, and Violet, a small town girl with big artistic dreams, but we share a roar of connection, a blaze of desire. Intense, thrilling, and I don’t want to let go.

But I ha

It felt more like a sneak peek into a book than a book in itself, but it was definitely an intriguing introduction to a whole new world.

In such a short read, you still get a feel of who Violet and Beck are, through their words and actions, though the other characters are but silhouettes in the background. Still, it was enough to understand most of the dynamics between all of them.

The connection between Beck and Violet was intense, even though it gets nowhere–yet.

Big Sigh…

Oh to be amongst this world once again.

Cat Porter is a favourite author of mine and this novella was beautifully written to whet the appetite for what is to come.

To hear how Lanore and Finger are together from both Violet and Beck POV was great as Fury was a favourite book of mine.

Can’t wait to read the rest of this series.

A teaser novella, about three chapters, but a perfect introduction for what is to come: we get just enough to want more. Violets and Becks are now on my radar, and I want to read their story.

Thank you to the author for the advanced copy; this is my voluntary review.

Freefall is a fast and easy start to the Wind and the Roar trilogy. Cat Porter sets up our couple to see each other at Pete's Tavern in our beloved Meager. Beck Lanier as the up-and-coming rocker, mesmerizes everyone, including his devoted mother, with his solo performance, giving the young Violet a jolt to her system she never saw coming.

Once these two are alone and have a deep conversation about choices they've made and the path ahead of them, the sparks fly almost immediately. Neither can see
"We only got one shot at life, Violet. Only one"

Violet & Beck love story is short and a BIG tease.
I really hope next books are longer because I want to know about their families and their home town.

Straight away Violet is a silent rebel especially when it come to her brother's hot 5 best friends. Who I want to meet. Her and Beck do have a history their mams know each other and she knows his mam.

Beck is a talent singers and I love the break down of the song he was singing to his mam. The song c

We get a sneak peak (or an appetizer as it were) of Violet and Beck. She is searching for something in her life and Beck provides inspiration to go for what she wants. Beck finds himself wanting a bit more with Violet but life gets in the way. After giving a great performance of a song for his mother, Beck is seeking affirmation of his feelings towards his mom and life. Violet gives him that. He then gives her great advice for her own life. Their chemistry was there. Can't wait to see where thes ...more

Freefall is a very short read that whetted my appetite for more of Violet & Beck. Basically it's about them meeting, and the sparks are flying but not much has happened to this point. They have an intense connection already which is why I'm dying inside for more, and I devoured it very quickly. So yeah, it's basically their introduction so I'm not sure what direction it will take but I know I'm here for it, and you will be as well after you hit those one click buttons! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! ...more

      For there to be only three chapters in this book, I was foaming at the mouth for the next book like many of you will. This was a prologue to The Whisper and The Roar Trilogy and it was everything needed to get Cat Porter's fans ready and willing for Whirlwind to get here. 

"I want to dance in the wind, sing in the roar."

     I love that lyric so much. I will definitely get that tattooed on my body. Is Whirlwind here yet? Please hurry!

Ah, back to Meager we go! This little nugget of a story shares a glimpse of what’s around the corner in the next installment from Cat Porter. We see a very short but intense interaction between Beck and Violet. This very brief interlude ignites a fire in Violet that sets her on a different path, one that is life-changing. I can’t wait to see what unfolds in the remaining trilogy. This little novella touches only the tip of the iceberg of what is yet to come!!

This is the first part of a trilogy, and we are introduced to Beck and Violet. Beck is an up-and-coming rockstar, while Violet has big artistic dreams, and the sparks fly between these two when they meet, and there is an intense connection between them. This is a short read which is intriguing. I look forward to reading the next part, and I recommend this authors’ work.

Love the way this trilogy is heading. Once again even through just a short beginning story of Beck and Violet’s beginning, Cat Porter’s words shine through. I want to devour this whole trilogy just from the couple chapters of this book!

Freefall is the first installment in The Wind and the Roar Trilogy by this author. I confess, this is the shortest of short read/ introduction I ever read in a story.
Violet and Becks are introduced and now I can't wait what happens to the not yet couple in the next books.

Fast, informative start to a series which amply served to whet my appetite for more to come. I loved getting this sneak peak at Violet and Beck's characters and state of mind. This appetiser has certainly worked! ❤❤❤❤ ...more

Its a blurb. Its an introduction to more in apparently a series. Hang on for a ride with some complex and interesting characters!

Not going to get full book consideration for review because I read this in ten minutes.

Beck is a singer with a band about to take off in a big way. Violet is trying to get her own life on a good track. The steam with this couple is there and this short read makes me eager to read more.

This was a wonderful little prelude to Cat Porter's new series and I'm beside myself with excitement for the continuation.

Novella introduction into the new trilogy. Back to Cat Porter’s Meager with hints of past beloved characters.
Wish this hadn't been just a novella, because I need more, can't wait for the rest....

Freefall is the three chapter rabbit hole back to Meager, South Dakota and the story magic of Cat Porter. Beck and Violet had my attention from the start, acquainted years earlier through their moms, finally drawn into their own moment at the local bar. Both young people at a crossroads in their lives, wanting more and questioning their status quo. So relatable. They could be each other's catalyst. Secrets revealed. Story changed. Is it all too real? I, for one, cannot wait to find out! ...more
