W. Ferraro is an effing goddess. Yep. I fell in love with her back with the start of the Hamden Series. Since then, I’ve been infatuated with her characters. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t even know this was coming out until I saw a post about a blog tour. So OBVIOUSLY I joined it, because I love this woman. I can’t even imagine what my reading life would be like right now if it weren’t for W. Ferraro. She’s one of the first contemporary authors that I had started reading, along with New Adult and Indie Authors.
Afraid to fall floored me with the differences and similarities to W.’s other masterpieces. Let’s begin with the fact that the main characters are flawed, irresistible, charming, and snarky. You immediately fall in love with Delaney. Yes, she has a troubled past, but she’s trying to move on from that and make an honest life for her son and herself. The strawberry blond haired beauty catches the eye of the sheriff Gage Dennison, right from the beginning. Gage is a conundrum. I want to love him but I want to hate him. I would call his super bipolar jealous rage fits childish, and uncalled for… but in his mind, he justifies all of his behavior. Even with his temper, he’s still super sexy and duh, he’s a sheriff.
Although it seems as if it’s going to start out as a damsel in distress type book, you’re very quickly reminded not everything is what it seems. Secrets and jealously wage war in this novel, making you want to pull your hair out and scream at the characters. I’m not sure I could even tell you how many times I wanted to punch Gage in the throat when he has his little bitch-fits. At the same time, I want to smack some sense into Delaney for letting him get away with it every time! <- That right there is me being a hypocrite.
This book was stunning, but painful. I can’t tell you how many times I cried during this novel. Oh god, I can’t even think about it right now… cause my chest is starting to hurt! Afraid To Fall brings a raw essence of love worth fighting for to the readers eyes. I have to say the growth of the characters throughout the book is simply astonishing. While they battle not only their own personal demons, but the demons of a new relationship, W. Ferraro keeps you on the edge of your seat and your heart pounding.
Per usual, I can’t wait for the next installment in this series. I’m wondering, is it going to be a continuation or… which brother it’s going to be?? I’ll take ANY. ONE. OF. THEM!! And again, per usual, get up (or don’t) but BUY THIS BOOK! You won’t be disappointed. I know I never am when it comes to the beautiful and talented W. Ferraro!! Go get it right meow!
