Review: Falling for Fallon by SJ Sylvis

Falling for Fallon
(Oak Hill Series Book 2)
by SJ Sylvis

Somehow, at the ripe age of twenty-three, I find myself in line to marry a man I don’t love.

I grind my teeth right there at the dinner table as my mother and father go on and on about how proud they are of me. How proud they are that I, Fallon Addington, will no longer be the black sheep of the family and become the daughter they’ve always wanted.

Marry Derek and they’ll finally accept me.
Marry Derek and they’ll stop shoving men from their social circle in my direction.
Marry Derek and become the spitting image of my mother—the perfect corporate wife with a face full of make-up and not a hair out of line.
Marry Derek and all the shame and guilt will disappear.

But then… I embarrassingly flash Emmett Lanning my bra, and suddenly my parents’ hopes and dreams are burning up in flames, right there along with my heart.

Conservative Fallon Addington had been raised by her strict parents to be a corporate wife she was entitled to be. They’d admonished her for her wild actions, dictated her every move, even found the perfect man for her to marry. It all seemed too good to be true. But Fallon was having none of it, especially when she didn’t harbor any romantic feelings for her soon-to-be fiancee.

Next thing we know, her bra was unleashed in a tattoo shop, a belly button caused her dress to get stuck up, a gorgeous man was beside her in a fitting room, and said man is also found underneath her skirt… Oh and there were those scenes with the tacos, Supernatural, hidden cameras and a self-centered family that Fallon had to deal with.

Emmet Landing didn’t ask for Fallon, wasn’t supposed to get entangled with a woman already betrothed to another, and he definitely didn’t expect to fall for her.

I loved how this story about a sheltered woman finally found her guts to defy the norm and stood for her right and choose herself instead of just nodding and saying yes to everything that her parents asked her too. I felt bad for Fallon at first because she was under her parents rules. I loved how she brought out her fun, wilder version and found the one who opened her eyes about the real world. SJ Sylvis captured my heart with Emmet’s and Fallon’s  altruistic characteristics and emotional love story. I found myself sighing, closing my eyes and reeling with joy after reading this book. A coming of age about love, family, affinities, choices and sacrifices. A new must-read from SJ Sylvis!
