Reading Until Dawn

Review requests currently closed

Our review request pile is currently closer to a mountain, and we're kind of afraid it's going to fall on our heads and bury us all in a massive book avalanche. Until we can get through the majority of the TBR list we have right now, we at MKR are currently unable to accept any new review requests.

Review: Falling for You by Heather Thurmeier


Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as “over him” as she thought—and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.

After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.

Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.

But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.

Let me start out by saying that I am one of the “odd” Americans that doesn’t watch reality TV.  I have never seen more than a commercial for The Bachelor or any of the other reality dating shows.

In Falling for you, we follow Cassidy on her journey as a contestant on the new reality dating show The One, where the eligible bachelor is none other than her most recent ex Brad.  This was a great look at what happens behind the scenes of a television show –  oh the mis adventures!  While Cassidy is trying to win a second chance with Brad, she ends up falling in love with her camera man Evan.

What I liked

Cassidy was so much fun to get to know.  She isn’t perfect, she’s conflicted, she’s slightly clumsy, and she’s brave enough to try new things.  Evan is very caring, protective, and equally conflicted.  These two had great chemistry and some really funny moments.  
The supporting cast was completely believable from the surfer playboy Brad, to the sweet new friend Paige.  There were some you wanted to hug and some you wanted to smack *coughs* Zoe.

What I didn’t like

The resolution of the main conflict seemed a little too easy for me, maybe another chapter between the last and the epilogue.

Overall, this was a light contemporary romance that made me laugh and was very enjoyable.  I look forward to the next in this trilogy: Stuck on You (due Feburary 11, 2013).
