Review ~ Fear of Falling (Fearless, #1) by S.L. Jennings

Fear of Falling (Fearless, #1)
ebook downloaded for free via Amazon.

Release Date: July 18th 2013

Publisher: Self-published

I can’t remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn’t bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I’ve run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn’t run anymore.

He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn’t the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn’t the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just…him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.

My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.

My Opinion

Fear of Falling introduced me to another new author. It was a book I downloaded for free purely based on the cover. I've had it on my Kindle for months so I had to idea what it was about, but it was an emotional read that I couldn't put down.

This book deals with tough subjects such as domestic violence. Kami has been broken by the abuse inflicted upon her by her father and she's barely hanging on. She has a good support system in Dom and Angel, but she views herself as unlovable. This poses the main conflict in the book when Blaine is introduced. He's tasked with breaking through Kami's walls, but in the end it might not be enough.

At times this book was uncomfortable to read. But that's because it detailed harsh truths. The author didn't sugar coat anything and I felt for Kami. I loved Blaine for sticking by her, and he's the guy you cheer on. I wanted them both to overcome everything.

Overall, a moving read. It's a little slow in places, which is why I didn't give it a 5, but the majority of the book is well written and the story held my interest.
