Fall (Seaside #4) by Rachel Van Dyken, Book Review
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.
I have fallen for Fall...truly I fell in love with this story! Rachel Van Dyken has exceeded all of my expectations with this book! I love the Seaside Series but Fall is now my favorite one! I never thought I would find myself cheering on Jaymeson, I mean the guy is a royal jerk with the ladies. Demetri and Alex swore that he would fall and boy did he fall hard! I love the way that he was constantly keeping tabs (albeit in a strange fashion) on Pris, making sure she was okay. Also that he was willing to change himself for the better....that says it all. He really cared and loved her. Pris' character was so wholesome and vibrant! She was funny and full of life, the reader can't help but want what is best for her! I never saw what was coming towards the end of the book, and the emotion is so strong that the reader will be feeling it right along with the characters! ( I would specify but I despise spoilers). This is a fantastic addition to the Seaside Series and I still want more of these characters! Please write more, I am not ready to leave Seaside, AD2 and Jaymeson behind just yet. That is the mark of a true great author, when the fans cannot get enough of the world they have created. That is exactly what Van Dyken has done with the Seaside Series!
You can pick up your own copy of Fall via Amazon..
