ARC Review: Still Falling for You by Siobhan Davis. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Still Falling for You by Siobhan Davis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An emotional, angsty, second-chance romance from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis. 


Once there was a boy, with messy blond hair, vibrant blue eyes, and the most dazzling smile, who helped to mend all the dark, broken pieces inside me.


Ryder made a bad situation better. Falling for him wasn’t just inevitable—it was the stars aligning and our souls connecting at the deepest level.


Plans were made, and for the first time ever, I had hope. I believed in the future we were going to build together.


Until he left, without even saying goodbye. 


Years have passed, and though I have tried to move on, my heart still lingers on the boy who claimed it.


Now he’s back, saying he wants another chance.


And I’m terrified I’m not finished falling.


This book was previously published as Only Ever You. It has received a makeover and undergone a fresh round of proofreading, but the story has not changed. 


Due to mature situations and some dark themes, this angst-filled romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older. Some scenes may be triggering. Please read the note at the start of the book.

Still Falling for You

Imperfect Hero!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Romance: 💙💚🖤💜❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😳🤬😏🤓😎

The heroine: Zeta – she grew up with a mother that didn’t care and stepfather that turned her mother into a prostitute. She ended up in Juvie before her seventeenth birthday.

The Hero(es): Ryder – he had a background very similar to Zeta, though he has been in juvie for a much longer time. He refuses to tell anyone except his psychologist the real reason he was sent to juvie. 

The Story: Ryder and Zeta have a connection from the moment their eyes meet when she enters the juvenile detention facility. Ryder has months left on his sentence and Zeta is put into the same unit as Ryder.

I don’t want to get too into the meat of the storylines since that will give too much away but to say that they experience ups and downs both while in juvie and once they are out. They end up apart and eight years go by before they meet again.

There was a lot I liked about this book, but definitely things I didn’t like. Ryder was a self destructive at times, and he seemed weak in others whereas I like the Hero to be strong and stand up to people like like bullies although there are reasons he didn’t.

It seems like Ryder spends too much time blaming himself for things that he really had no control over and wallowing in his failure to do more. When anger gets the best of him he ends up throwing a tantrum and either punching walls, punching people or breaking things, it seems somewhat childish. Though I do suppose that makes it more realistic since we know most real life rockstars would make far from perfect Heroes.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
