E.K. Blair


Review: Falling (Fading #2) by E.K Blair

Sometimes it takes someone else to show us what we are truly capable of becoming.

Suffering from years of violent abuse, Ryan Campbell has learned how to keep people from getting too close. But when you shut yourself off, people get hurt along the way. Never caring much about others, Ryan creates a world in which he doesn’t have to feel.

When Ryan meets Candace Parker, all of his walls slowly begin to crumble. Not sure of the truth of who she is, he feels his mind is playing tricks on him. Unable to force out the thoughts that consume him, Ryan is haunted by visions that torment him every time he looks at her. He finds himself swallowed by guilt and blame, but he’s unwilling to turn his back on the one person that could possibly save him.

You’ve heard Candace’s story in Fading, now hear Ryan’s.

Who Picked This? Book blog was given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Manda's 4 Star Review:
Falling is Ryan and Candace's story told from Ryan's POV.

Ryan Campbell has spent his life keeping people at a distance and using woman. He never wanted a relationship and if anyone got to close he shut them out. Until he meets Candace Parker. She is beautiful and mysterious. Ryan can tell she is hiding a secret that is keeping her closed off, but he wants more than anything to gain her trust. The closer he gets to Candace the more he cares for her and the more he wants to help her, but she isn't the only one keeping a secrets.

I love reading books from the male POV. I am a big fan of Fading and Freeing, so I was really excited to read this book. E.K Blair is an amazing author and has a knack for writing stories that pull you in. I really enjoyed reading Ryan's background and getting a better picture of how he ended up being so closed off. I did feel like it was a little long and seemed to drag a bit in the middle but picked up again at the end. All in all it was a good book and I really enjoyed hearing the story from Ryan's POV.

Mag's 3 Star Review:

Falling is told strictly from Ryan’s POV, and we find out much more about his past and the reasons why we was always using women before he met Candace.  In Fading, we all met Ryan and he swept us off our feet.  He was beyond caring and considerate towards Candace, but being able to get inside of his head truly showed how much of a caring individual he is.  It’s always nice to see a book from another person perspective, especially when they have more going on behind the scenes. 

The only negative things I would have to say about this book is it was really long and seemed rather drawn out in parts and it didn’t really have enough of Ryan’s own parts not associated with Fading.  I would recommend this book, but would defiantly make sure and tell the reader to not read it back to back with Fading.  Overall, a solid book from E.K Blair!!
