Falling ***Book of the Month***

Falling (Negative Ion Series book 1) by: Ryanne Anthony

This book is the first book in this incredible series. Now, I haven’t read the books to follow this one, but after not being able to pull myself away from this one, I want to. I rate my reviews on a scale of 1-5, and I must say I couldn’t give this book anything less than 5 stars. From page one it grabbed my attention and held on. I found myself quickly falling in love with the two main characters Kimber (Itsy), and Jaxen.
Throughout the book I felt a series of emotions right along with the characters. I’ve laughed, cried, found myself angry, and at some point wanted to reach through the book to grab a hold of a character in particular. It was a rollercoaster of emotions that only great books, and astounding authors can make a reader feel.
Ryanne Anthony out done herself with this book and I can’t wait to read what she has coming next. The ending of the book left me wanting more, and you better believe I’m going to grab the next book when it comes out. I’m so very grateful that the author gave me the opportunity to read this book. I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially, if you want to read a book that you will never forget.

Michelle's Review: ***** 5 Stars
WOW!! I am in complete shock! I was not expecting that ending at all. That completely threw me for a loop. Okay, I have to say I absolutely loved this book and instantly fell in love with the characters. From the first page to the last, I was so wrapped up in the story I literally read the whole book in one sitting while at work only stopping to when I actually had to work. As soon as I finished whatever I had to do, I was right back in the story. Ryanne Anthony writes an amazing story that just sucks you in and just when you think you know what is going to happen, think again, she throws a twist at you. Definitely an amazing read and I cannot wait until I can read the next one.
I was gifted this copy for a honest review.

Marla's Review: **** 4 Stars
This book was raw and edgy. It totally grabbed my interest from the beginning. I would have loved to see the pacing evened out more, or maybe the scenes to be more fleshed out. But, hey, Ryanne Anthony knows how to spin an engaging story. I read the book through in almost 1 sitting because I didn't want to put it down. I loved the characters, even Jaxen, who clearly has some issues. I'm still not clear what exactly Jaxen's issues stem from. He and his sister seem to have a love hate relationship. And, this makes the dynamics of the story that much more interesting. The characters are so...out there? in some ways, yet at the same time so real. The whole cast almost reminded me of the crazy neighbors who always seemed to have some fascinating drama going on. They're all really nice, so you can't complain about them. But, you scratch your head at how the neighborhood professor or surgeon has these wild but nice kids.
I really also enjoyed Kimber's mom. She felt very down to earth and real to me. The love story between Jaxen and Kimber, however, takes center stage and it's not an easy one. Jaxen can be such a sweetheart and such a jerk. Yet, I found myself rooting for them and wanting them to work things out. They clearly love each other, though it's not totally clear to me why Jaxen messes things up at one point. I have my assumptions, but I'm not sure.
This is definitely a page turner and I look forward to finding out what's next in the complicated world of Negative Ion.

Lorraine's Review **** 4 Star
Loved this one, loved the two main characters. I liked Jaxen right from the start, and right up until he hurt Kimber, not physically but verbally.
Apart from Jaxen and Kimber there were several other engaging minor characters, and I hope to see more of them in the series.
I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting a light, enjoyable read. Speaking of enjoyable, the sex scenes were hot!
I felt like I was on a rollercoaster, just like Kimber’s emotions. The ending was totally unexpected but I can understand it. I am just grateful that there will be another book in this series.
