Contemporary eARC Review: Falling For You by Heather Thurmeier

FALLING FOR YOU by Heather Thurmeier
Series: Reality TV #1
Format: PDF
Genre: Contemporary
Length: 210 pages
Publisher: Crimson Romance (August 20, 2012)

Newly 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.

REVIEW:



Cassidy Quinn is ready for a new adventure after getting dumped by her boyfriend six months ago. When her sister signs her up for a new reality dating show she jumps in only to find herself faced with her ex, Brad, as the bachelor. Talk about drama. If that wasn’t enough, Cassidy is assigned her very own cameraman to follow her around. And that cameraman just happens to be drop dead sexy. Evan Burke thought that this job would be easy. Until he met Cassidy.

Evan is determined to keep from falling in love with any woman after his brother lost his wife. But when meets Cassidy he is immediately blown away by her. He can’t deny that she’s attractive and as he gets to know her he finds himself falling for her. And she’s falling for him. The only problem is that they aren’t allowed.

Of course that doesn’t stop them. As time goes by Cassidy is sure that it’s Evan she wants and not Brad but because of the show she is obligated to play the game until she is sent home. But it seems that Brad wants another chance and she finds herself staying week after week. Evan is forced to watch Cassidy go on dates with Brad and it takes everything to keep himself in check and not give himself away.

As things get more intense with Evan, things start to get more confusing with Brad for Cassidy. Plus it seems that Evan and Cassidy aren’t doing a good job keeping a lid on their affair. In the end Cassidy knows who she wants, its just a matter of Evan wanting her.

Favorite Quote
“Last names are highly overrated. But it’s Burke. Evan Burke.”
“Are you related to Bond, James Bond?” She couldn’t help but smile.
“We’re only related by our amazing ability to seduce unsuspecting women into our beds.” He grinned. “It’s a superpower, really. We should come with a warning label.”
Overall
If you love those dating reality shows I think you’ll really enjoy reading Falling For You. It made me laugh out loud, it made my heart flutter and it made my breath catch. The banter between Evan and Cassidy is hilarious. No wonder she fell for him, I was giggling like a schoolgirl. And then there were some button flying in the bedroom!

I think Heather Thurmeier did a great job making Cassidy come across as real. The way Cassidy dealt with her emotions is something that every girl would do. She was able to grow as the story progressed from a woman who just going through the motions of life to living life and falling in love. Oh, and Evan. Evan is just sexy. And funny.

There are going to be two more books in this Reality TV Series and the next book involves Cassidy’s friend Paige and Zoe, the mean girl. So sign me up for the next book!
