Falling (Fading #2) by E.K. Blair
Ryan Campbell is a successful business man. He can't say that about his personal life. He has a great family but has no one special to share it with.
He parties and uses women as a distraction.
Everything changes when he meets Candace Parker, a ballerina with a very sad past. Suddenly, he cares what she may think of him. She becomes his number one priority and he wants to be there for her.
Ryan just needs to convince her that he's in for the long run.
What to say about this book?
I can start by saying that I liked it. We get to know everything that Ryan was feeling before he met Candace and later on, how he fell in love with her.
“You’ve always intrigued me. You aren’t like any girl I’ve ever known. Without even trying, you get me thinking about myself and what I want out of life. You’re everything I never thought I wanted, but when I met you, you were everything I needed.”
Ryan has gone through life using women as an addiction to prevent him from feeling. He has never been in love and it's because he doesn't want to discover that he might be like his terrible father.
It's amazing to see how Ryan changes. How he opens himself to trust and protect Candace. He gives himself completely.
“I never thought I needed anything in this life until I met you. Everything you give me is exactly what I have always needed, and you do it perfectly.”
He knows that Candace is what he wants and he is determined to wait for her until she is ready.
“You don’t even know how much you have already given me. When I met you, I found me.”
I need to comment on Ryan's family. He is a good son, he has a great relationship with his mother, his cousin Tori and with all his nephews and nieces. His mother was super sweet and so supportive.
“Sometimes it isn’t about breaking walls, dear. Sometimes it’s simply about proving yourself to the other person that they’re willing to just let them down.”
I enjoyed this book. I can recommend it without any doubts.
“I see you in colors that don’t exist.”
