Fall by Rachel Van Dyken


5 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

I somehow missed this novel in my binge reading session of the Seaside Series. I have to say it might be my favorite of them all. Jamie is by far one of my favorite characters in the series, and Priscilla is pretty high up there on my list too. This was like a flashback for me. It has been a while since I read a Seaside novel, and reading this AFTER the new release of Capture, I felt like I traveled back in time to get the scoop on how certain things came to be. Jamie has been sent to Seaside to lay low and right the wrongs of the way he is living. His agent and those involved in his career think that at this point he really needs to look and act the part of a saint, because his current perceptions are not what they are looking for in their newest casting. He will do what he needs to to get the job, and if that means going back to a place he dreads, then so be it. Okay. This novel was SO GOOD! I adored how it was a second chance read. Those always do it for me. This one especially. This novel had me in stitches half the time, and when it wasn't that, I was either swooning or in tears. Rachel's men typically have that effect on me. Darn them for being so darn great. I don't know what else to say about this book. A story about the movie star falling for the pastor's daughter. A story about atoning for past mistakes and facing your feelings. A story about overcoming immense hurt. Don't miss this epic story, it is worth every single penny.


If you look up British in the dictionary…A-list celebrity Jamie Jaymeson’s name would be next to it. Along with charming, witty, man-whore, and a lot of other adjectives that he wouldn’t appreciate being attached to his name. He has everything in the world going for him. Until fate decides his number’s finally up. Caught in a compromising position that really wasn’t his fault to begin with (really it wasn’t)—Jaymeson’s been told by his agent to lay low in the one town he swore he’d never return to—the seventh circle of hell, known by its residents as Seaside, Oregon. Two months? He can do anything for two months. Especially if it means getting a part in the new book-to-movie series that has girls all over the world swooning. Play nice? Keep it in his pants? Please. He played an alien once—he was going to totally rock it. Until a certain someone who he may or may not have publicly humiliated—rejected, then humiliated again, suddenly pops up next door. Self control has a way of flying out the window when the one girl you can’t have—is suddenly dangled right in front of you. But Priscilla isn’t just off limits—she’s a pastor's daughter and barely legal to boot. So Jaymeson does the one thing he swore he’d never do—he tries to be friends. With a woman. Only, it’s exactly what he needs. Until suddenly, he craves more. He wants to date her. She wants to date someone else. He wants to kiss her. She asks him to give her lessons for her new boyfriend. When opposites attract, sometimes the only option you have is to leap—and trust the fact that when you fall—that special someone falls too.
