Fall by Kristen Callihan Review

5 Smooches


The first time I met Jax Blackwood things went a little sideways.

In my defense, I didn’t know he was Jax Blackwood—who expects a legendary rock star to be shopping for groceries? More importantly, a blizzard was coming and he was about to grab the last carton of mint-chocolate chip.

Still, I might have walked away, but then he smugly dared me to try and take the coveted ice cream. So I kissed him. And distracted that mint-chip right out of his hands.

Okay, it was a dirty move, but desperate times and all that. Besides, I never expected he’d be my new neighbor.

An annoying neighbor who takes great pleasure in reminding me that I owe him ice cream but would happily accept more kisses as payment. An irresistible neighbor who keeps me up while playing guitar naked–spectacularly naked–in his living room.

Clearly, avoidance is key. Except nothing about Jax is easy to ignore—not the way he makes me laugh, or that his particular brand of darkness matches mine, or how one look from him melts me faster than butter under a hot sun.

Neither of us believes in love or forever. Yet we’re quickly becoming each other’s addiction. But we could be more. We could be everything.

All we have to do is trust enough to fall.


This was one of my most anticipated books this year and boy did it live up to my expectations. I was a ball of emotions reading this epic story.

Jphn and Stella’s love story is hard in all the right ways. Nothing comes easy but when earned it feels so right. Their love story was satisfying and addicting. From the very beginning, I knew this would be a book I wasn’t able to put down. I love to watch people develop from friends to lovers to in love, being on their journey felt like watching something so private.

This is the third standalone in teh VIP series and each one has been incredible. I really enjoyed seeing the other characters I’ve fallen for previously in this book. Catching up with them was just the icing on the cake.
