Raleigh West works in an auto shop day and night, trying to put his broken past out of mind. It’s been seven years since the fiery crash that landed his teenage sweetheart in the hospital . . . and him in jail. In an instant, he lost everything: his passion for racing, his hope of escaping his father’s shameful legacy, and the only girl he ever loved. Raleigh hasn’t seen her since that awful night. Never got a chance to apologize. And never forgave himself, either.
When brave, beautiful Mia Wentworth returns to the Florida coast for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s not to see Raleigh. Even so, the moment she arrives she can feel his presence like a gust of wind that gives her goose bumps. Opening her heart to him again seems impossible. But staying away? That might be harder still. Lucky for them both, Mia’s never been the kind of woman to take the easy way out.
Two teenage lovers, reunited after years and the great tragedy that tore them apart. Raleigh is struggling to earn the money for a body shop. Mia is the "rich girl", physically scarred by a deadly crash. Brought together by a dead woman’s will, they find themselves co-owners of the beach cottage in the town where they first met.
Falling Fast had a premise of a very endearing and cute love story. I just found the execution of the story anything but fast. The potential was there but by the time the drama hit, I didn’t care. I read and loved other books by Wainscott but this one wasn't for me. 2.5 Stars.
I received this ARC copy of Falling Fast from Random House Publishing Group - #Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication June 16, 2015.
