Falling For You
My ThoughtsNewly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show, The One.But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as “over him” as she thought—and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.
Heather Thurmeier has written one of the most original romances I have read in a long, long time. Not your average boy meets girl kind of story, Falling for You is a fun story that actually takes place on a dating show from tv. Trust me, its much better than the actual Bachelor show too!
Imagine Cassidy’s surprise when she starts out on a dating show and the bachelor all the women are gunning for is...her ex-boyfriend! Someone wasn’t doing their job vetting the single ladies, were they? Brad, the ex-boyfriend, positively broke Cassidy’s heart and she is still getting over him when she is thrown together with the dreaded ex by her meddling sister who signed her up for the show. Add to the mix Evan, a handsome and utterly awesome camera man who finds Cassidy enchanting and you have this incredibly funny and sweet romance.
Falling for You is a super cute contemporary romance. The characters are funny, realistic, and I wish I had an Evan for myself. I really loved the point of view of Cassidy and seeing this world of reality TV from the inside out. Perfect for fans of reality romance, I’m excited to read what Heather comes up with next. It looks like its going to be a trilogy, woot woot!
It had been her meddling little sister Keira who’d taken it upon herself to apply to be on a new reality dating show—using Cassidy’s name. To Cassidy’s horror, she’d actually been accepted. When she’d gotten the unexpected call from the show’s producer, she’d wanted to kill her sister. Instead, she’d been convinced to go through with the rest of the audition process and screen tests.
By the time it was all over and she was asked to be on the show, Cassidy had grown used to the idea of having an opportunity to fall in love with some mystery bachelor. Her friends told her to forget the show and take a cruise instead, where she could soak in the sun while “Margaritaville” played over the pool speakers. But did she listen?
Not a chance.
Maybe he’ll be the one. Cassidy searched the room for the bachelor of the show, her stomach twisting into a knot at the thought of being forced to date someone new. She hadn’t been with anyone since Brad chose to leave her and New York behind to go back to California to start pro-surfing again. Maybe coming on the show would force her out of her six-month dating hibernation. Or maybe she’d throw up on the bachelor’s shoes when she finally met him.
Either was a definite possibility.
