I love Lesley Jones books. I just love reading her books because she is one of the authors who combines wit, angst, drama, heat and love to bring out an effortless masterpiece. She is that brilliant author who is able to bring us a story that we can escape to and just want to live in and totally experience. Spiralling Skywards: Falling is a totally a wonderful book experience that literally blew my mind. It was an amazing read that got my heart pumping and so excited.
Spiralling Skywards: Falling is about Liam and Sarah who meet and form an instant spark. They get to know each other and start to develop feelings for each other. Then things start to go wrong. I love reading this book. Of course I am sucker for romances that truly touch my heart and Spiralling Skywards touched my heart. I loved that there was heart and wit in this story that made me become so glued to the book. My eyes were totally glued to this book. Lesley Jones is a genius when it comes to writing a book with so much angst that totally tears my heart in two. She has a way of bringing so much emotion in a story that those emotions start to creep inside your mind, heart, and soul. Spiralling Skywards: Falling totally did not disappoint with the feels. You know when you are on a rollercoaster and it has so much twists and turns and all you have to do is hold on for dear life. Well, Spiralling Skywards: Falling had twists and turns that truly had my heart exploding that I had to hold on to my heart before it combusted with so much tension and emotion. I was actually going insane because I was so into the book that everything that was happening in the book, I was becoming so vocal like a deranged fool. And that's so wonderful about a book when it evokes emotion, tension, drama and angst. It is just beautiful and like I always say, it is gold in my eyes. Lesley Jones nailed it. II was so surprised with sexual tension in the book. Man, the sex scenes were so hot and totally did not overwhelm. They were placed at convenient places and I commend the author for that. I got more story. What was even more exciting was the wit. I laughed. I liked that there was angst but there were still parts that were light and of course I now know few more British and Australian slang. LOL. I might start saying them.
I loved the characters in this book. Wow. Liam and Sarah are a couple that were so believable. Their chemistry was so genuine. But what shines was their individuality that added an edge and a unique dynamic to the story. I enjoyed that. I loved Sarah. Her insecurities and weakness really tore my heart and I could relate to her because we all had insecurities that plagued our minds. However they were some times when I felt that she was too emotional and she needed to lighten up a bit but I loved how loving and caring she was to people close to her. A typical good girl persona. Liam was actually someone who I loved more because of his development in terms of relationships and letting someone in. I loved that he was protective and he was fighter willing to fight for the person he loves. It made him a very likable character in my eyes.
Overall, Spiralling Skywards: Falling was an emotional book that had a meaningful story that was relatable and also lovable. I can't wait for book 2 because with Lesley Jones, I know something major is going go down lol.
