Falling For You-Lisa Schroeder

Affection turns to obsession—and love means both devastation and redemption—in this gripping novel from the author of I Heart You, You Haunt Me.Rae’s always dreamed of dating a guy like Nathan. He’s nothing like her abusive stepfather—in other words, he’s sweet. But the closer they get, the more Nathan wants of her time, of her love, of her…and the less she wants to give.

As Rae’s affection for Nathan turns to fear, she leans on her friend Leo for support. With Leo, she feels lighter, happier. And possessive Nathan becomes jealous. He’s not about to let her go. And with danger following her every move, Rae must fight for the life and love she deserves if she’s going to survive.


     Rae is a girl trapped in pretty horrible circumstances.She lives with her mother and stepfather,Her stepfather is abusive,degrading and just an all around unpleasant man.Her mother loves him and cannot see past him to see Rae.Rae Meets Nathan and at first he is wonderful..but things start to change with Nathan..His jealousy is too much to soon..almost suffocating.She is unable to be around him due to his jealousy and just plain weird things going on with him.Rae works at a flower shop after school and knows Leo who has been her friend for awhile..Eventually they become more then friends.Sadly Something horrific happens where Rae has to be stronger and fight harder then she has ever fought before.
     Well Geez,Falling For You pulled me out of my reading slump,Twice I started books I couldnt finish.Then I opened Falling For You and BAM I could not put it down.It was wonderful.I was so mad at Rae's step father and mother..if I could have jumped in the story I would have!Nathan..I didnt understand him as much..I mean I know part of his deal but I think for him playing such a big part something was needed..even if it was Rae's friend giving that info.But that did not in anyway affect the story and it is just something I think could have made the story even better.I absolutely loved how while the book went in 3 different part...there was a present day..past and then poetry as a chapter it was so very easy to follow and not be confused.It flowed so very well.I did wish there was an epilogue..but its not really needed...just a personal preference. This was the perfect book to start 2013 with!I'd definitely take the time to read this story.If not you will definitely be missing out!
