Violence. I’m addicted to it. It’s how I feel alive. It’s the only thing that’s real any more.
And now I have to sit around and discuss it like it’s physics or calculus. I can’t do it. I can’t pretend that it’s some sterile academic topic. Violence isn’t sterile. It isn’t calm. It’s pulsing. It’s alive.
It’s my drug.
Until I met Abby, I never wanted anything beyond the next fight. Never considered that I might finally find a way back to the land of the living.
Now? Now I find myself dreaming of a woman with golden eyes.
But I can never be with her. Because I am not whole. And I never will be again.
But I cannot stay away. And loving her might finally be what breaks me.

Love can conquer anything
After facing years of abuse with her stepfather and then an ex-boyfriend, Abby was determined it would not happen to her again. So she is very apprehensive on romance and wants to find someone normal. Definitely not an ex-Army guy who looks like hell after being in a bar fight and has eyes that show he has issues.
Josh had two places he went to all the time to find solace in his life, the gym where he would run himself ragged and a local bar run by a fellow ex-Soldier. The later caused more problems because it seemed like drinking was the only way he could make it through the night and face the college preppies next day. One evening after being kicked out of the bar yet again for brawling, he stumbled across Abby needing help dealing with some guys who do not understand the word no. While they can both feel the atrraction neither is ready for it, they go their separate ways before it goes too far.
LIttle did they realize that it would not be the only time they met, it happened again in class. Josh took the chance to sit by her and she did not have a problem with it. She seems to be able to calm him down during class when a fellow student keeps getting a rise out of him. But both have demons in their past and to keep on going they would have to work them out. In order to do that, they would need to do it together, which meant they had to tell each other everything, absolutely everything.
Once again Jessica Scott has slammed a home run with this book. I will admit that it took me longer to read this one than usual but that was because it was so intense. Sometimes I needed to put it down for a bit before returning. Then it was over and I couldn’t believe it. Dealing with PTSD is something anyone can have to do, anywhere. Everyone deals with it in their own way because often that is their only choice as there is no one there to help, especially those in the military.
Break My Fall
Every new book from Jessica takes me on a journey. Sometimes the journey is difficult, but there are many more glimmers of healing and love.
Heartwrenching & Hopeful!
The second book in Jessica Scott's "Falling" series is just as thought provoking, heart wrenching and hopeful as the first book in this series. Josh & Abby come into their relationship with their own issues. Watching how they support one another and bring each other out of a dark place makes a truly wonderful love story. The author's ability to make you feel what this young war vet is dealing with once he is home, trying to attend college courses and develop a life after war really touches me. Wonderful story!
