Okay, I must first give a disclaimer for this review. I have never read any New Adult books until this one. Prior to this, I read primarily Young Adult. That being said, I believe most of my problems with this book resulted from its genre, not the book itself. I'll explain more in the review, but I just wanted to let you know that if you love New Adult books, don't avoid this book just because of my less than enthused review.
The plot of this book was very intriguing. There are many girls being stalked and then hurt in Roxy's town, and eventually Roxy begins being stalked as well. That's when Reece, the hot cop, comes into the picture. Reece swears that he will do anything to protect Roxy. At the same time, Roxy is also dealing with her best friend, Charlie, dying in the hospital due to an act of violence committed by Henry, who was consequently sent to prison. However, at the start of this book, Roxy finds out that Henry is back in town and wants to see Charlie and her. So basically, Roxy is dealing with many scary situations throughout this book which made for an intriguing plot. I loved the whole plot surrounding the unknown stalker. It is interesting to see the mystery surrounding who the stalker is unfold. I love mysteries so that part of the book I found very interesting. The part of the book I didn't like so much was the romance. For those who have been following my blog for awhile, you may think "What is she saying? She loves romance in books." However, I like clean romance, and this book was anything but. I guess that is what New Adult books are like from what I've read, but I didn't realize that until I read Fall with Me. Needless to say, there are a lot of graphic scenes in this book that I skipped over. Reece and Roxy's relationship wasn't really my cup of tea, but aside from that I loved the plot.
Honestly, the characters' personalities were what made me hate the romance in this book. Roxy was okay. I didn't love her as a narrator as I thought I would, because come on a geeky girl with glasses is so me. However, Roxy was a little too, I don't know, strange I guess. I love strange, but Roxy's voice was one that I couldn't really get into. I wish she would have seemed more realistic. She was irrationally stubborn sometimes, but the next moment she was caving. I just wish she was little bit more consistent. In contrast though, Roxy's personality was worlds better than Reece's. I personally hate Reece. I mean, sure it's nice that he wants to dedicate his life to protecting her, but I feel like the main reason why he does that is to get into Roxy's pants, which is wrong and disgusting. Honestly, with the data given in this book, I don't believe Reece loves Roxy. I believe he merely is lusting after her. He's just one of those guys, and personally, I can't stand those guys. I like male protagonists who are strong yet respectful because those are the kinds of guys that girls should go for. I don't know why girls would want to read about a guy who is a complete trash bag; they should have higher standards than that. I'm sorry for my brief rant, I just want to share my opinion and let my followers know that they deserve better.
