Review Fall Into You by Roni Loren
So I’d read Melt Into You and Crash into you by Ms. Loren, and to be honest, I wasn’t a fan. Really. I enjoyed them, but I also felt like there were some major things that were wrong, or missing or needed additional clarity that I didn’t get to enjoy the good parts of the book. Which was always the relationships between the main characters. Sometimes too much OTHER gets in the way of the important bits, that are and should be the focus of the novel.
So I was looking forward to Fall Into You and wondering if I’d be getting more of the same. I notice with authors, the more they write the more the balance between the other and the relationship comes into focus and it always gets better. I am SUPER happy to say that Fall into you was amazing.
First the balance between Charli’s outside life and struggles and her relationship with Grant was perfect. It melded and blended beautifully. It makes logical sense, it was so well done. The way that Charli went into her relationship with Grant was just perfect. It had just enough vulnerability, she needed everything he had to offer, with just enough spite and uncertainty that, it was just peppered to perfection. The best part, it was entirely believable. Who hasn’t questioned their femininity in the face of a barbie doll? And of course when you are directly competing with said barbie, it brings everything back into stark contrast when you are immediately having to see the ramifications of one person’s vie of what you are and what you are not compared to what they think someone else is or isn’t.
Fall into you was lovely to read. It was all about a master losing a little control but gaining a woman he genuinely cares about and who can stand up to him and stand up in front of all of his utter maleness and be able to stay herself the entire time. She is able to embrace the female part of herself and the submissive part of herself without becoming something she isn’t and something she doesn’t want to be. Its lovely to read and even lovelier to imagine.
One of my favorite parts has to be the reality and the honesty with which the BDSM side of the relationship is explained and explored. There is simply so much that is so well explained and so well done and so beautifully put together that it just makes every part of the book better because there aren’t these crazy stupid jumps in reality when it comes to the believability of their BDSM relationship. There were conversations, there was a progression of stuff, it wasn’t like he just said, I’m a DOM bow down to me in all of my awesome and that was the end of it. there was a negotiation, communication, and learning on both sides. A fantastic give and take that resulted in an open and honest relationship that was just exciting and enjoyable to read. I simply loved every part of it and would have loved to read more about these two amazing and fantastic individuals. Its just so well done and so beautifully put together.
I loved every minute of it.
