Colton Allyster is relieved to be back home. After a year of rehabilitation, losing his career as a Marine along with his fiancé, he’s had to learn quickly what’s really important. Colton grew up wanting to serve his country. Managing his parents’ biker bar was never part of his plan, but after meeting Gia Caro, he’s beginning to think that’s exactly where he’s meant to be.

Ever since Gia Caro arrived in the small, sleepy town of Ruby Falls, Tennessee, her life has spiraled out of control. Between losing her grandmother a little more each day to dementia, and her hot boss’s constant attention, her once quiet existence isn’t so quiet anymore.

After weeks of sidestepping Colton, things get out of hand, and before Gia knows what’s happening, she’s spending her nights in his bed and her mornings in his kitchen. And as he cleans out drawers and makes room in his closet, she starts to wonder if she’s falling too fast.

Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds is a fast-paced romance novel that is not for everyone. While I definitely had issues with this one, I had a hard time putting it down.

What’s the Story:

Falling Fast is about Gia Caro who moves to Tennessee when she discovers her grandmother (who she thought has passed away years ago) was having health problems and needed someone to take care of her. Since she also needs money, she gets a job at a biker bar, which is how she meets Colton Allyster. Colton is a former Marine, and was severely hurt overseas. Although Gia resists at first, of course Colton and Gia can’t resist each other and romance!

What I Liked:

  • Gia and Colton had a lot of chemistry, and I definitely believed their attraction to each other.
  • Colton was totally into Gia, and never doubted them as a couple once they got together. I loved that.
  • The conflict wasn’t really angst-y and was mostly outside the relationship. Sometimes I just crave those kind of reads, and this certainly was that.
  • I had a hard time putting the book down. Even with the many eye-rolly moments, I finished this book so fast.

What I Struggled With:

  • Colton was a bit too Alpha, and really liked to boss Gia around. It definitely got old real fast.
  • There was this weird city vs. country living thing. Gia is from Chicago, but moves to Tennessee. And she’s always talking about how since she lived in Chicago her car is always being jacked, but now that she’s in the country, she doesn’t have to worry about it. It was just weird.
  • The drama about Colton’s ex who is just horrible and has no redeeming qualities. It’s not at all well-developed, and honestly kind of a cop out, story-wise.

Overall Thoughts

While Falling Fast by Aurora Rose Reynolds is not for everyone, there is definitely an audience for books like these. In fact, this one has very high ratings on Goodreads (4.2 stars). So, if you’re looking for a book with an over the top alpha hero, then look into this author.

    LOL I’m thinking your over the top alpha will just be my regular alpha 😉 I don’t like them quite as sweet as you. Heh. The ex drama. Oy. I don’t love those cop out storyline bits. I’m reading one like that now.

    That cover is pretty amazing.

    Eh I think I’ll pass on this one. I don’t mind an Alpha but I dislike a bossy Alpha.

    I have read Hidden Riches by Nora Roberts and I loved it! It’s been awhile so it’s on my reread list. I think more romances should take place in antique stores. Oh and the podcast I got tired of WAS Read It and Weep! How did you guess :)?
