About Falling ForwardWhat do you do when you hate your life and your joy is gone? Never the sister with the best of luck, Luna Rockwell gave up on her own happiness a long time ago. She's lost herself in a never-ending cycle of work, in a career she’s come to loathe. When a once in a lifetime opportunity comes along, on the second worst day of her life, it gives her a chance most women can only dream about. Searching for love in a new city, Luna finds herself in a love-triangle she never expected. Will Luna find love once and for all, or is she destined to be the cat-lady aunt for the rest of her life?
Excerpt 1 (Racy)
After stuffing my fat face and snuggling in between two hot guys after seeing Coldplay… I slept like a baby. The sun starts to peak in through a crack in the curtains and shine right into my eyes. I roll over and try to go back to sleep, not even opening my eyes, but then I feel it… there is a dick, pressing against my ass. I try to ignore it and roll back over in the other direction, but the sun damn near blinds me through my eyelids. And then there is another dick… pressing against my ass.
“Who is awake?” I ask, still without opening my eyes. All I want to do is go back to sleep for another hour, and instead I’m in the middle of a morning wood sword fight.
“Me,” both of the guys say at the same time. I let out a sigh.
“Who wants to let me sleep for another hour?” I say, and of course the silence is deafening. They are like children waiting to jump out of bed on Christmas morning.
“We do have to get on the road by noon if we don’t want to hit nasty traffic,” Liam adds.
“So, no more sleep?” I say, slowly blinking my eyes open to find them both staring at me.
“Nope,” They both say at the same time. Welp, I guess I am getting up!
“Can I at least brush my teeth first?” I ask in a whiny tone.
“Hurry up,” Liam says, and I take my time getting out of the bed and climbing over Hunter to make my way to the bathroom.
“Gosh, you’re a brat,” Hunter chimes in. He’s right, I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s my stubborn nature but when someone tells me to do something I usually do the opposite. I’m pretty sure that’s in my DNA. I stop dragging my feet, and pee as quick as I can, before taking my time brushing my teeth. Three minutes at the least, dental health is important. I roll my eyes in the mirror at my silly obsession with teeth. I also may be petrified of the dentist.
I wipe my mouth with a towel and stare at myself in the mirror wondering what waits for me on the other side of that door. I feel completely overwhelmed. I close my eyes and reassure myself that everything is going to be okay. This is what we all want. This is something we’ve talked about for almost a month. These two men adore me, they worship the ground that I walk on…there is nothing to be scared of. I hope.
“Ready for me?” I say, peeking out of the bathroom and seeing the two men still in the same place I left them a few minutes ago. Both men instantly look in my direction, as I slowly walk towards the bed. Step by step I kick off another piece of clothing. First my sweatpants, then my t-shirt leaving me completely naked in front of the two of them.
This book is why I read. I have only found a few books like this, but this book has everything an avid reader looks for. Luna Rockwell will invade your heart and soul. You can't help, but feel what she feels. Luna could be any one of us. There is not a part of Luna that you won’t be able to connect with. The character development is seamless, and you will find yourself falling in love with every dynamic character she introduces. The plotline weaves its way around you until you feel like you are there watching it all unfold. The emotions leap from the page; they grab your heart and will wring every emotion out of you until the very last page. You will laugh out loud from the witty banter. There is not one thing I could ask for more of in this book.....well there is one thing, but I will leave that for you all to find out on your own! 😉
One day can change your whole life in the best and the worst way possible. It is about finding yourself, grieving, repairing relationships, and finding love that is not conventional, but perfect for you. Love knows no bounds when it wants to find you. It will make you run the gamut of emotions from page start to finish.
