Book Review: Fear of Falling

Fear of Falling by SL Jennings: 
***Inspired by true events***
I can't remember the last time I felt completely safe. Security seemed more like a luxury to me, reserved for those who were fortunate enough to have picture perfect childhoods. For those who didn't bear the ugly scars that keep me bound in constant, debilitating fear. I've run from that fear my entire life. But when I met him, for once, I couldn't run anymore.

He scared the hell out of me in a way that excited every fiber of my being. It wasn't the tattoos or the piercings. It wasn't the warmth that seemed to radiate from his frame and blanket me whenever he was near. It was just...him. The scary beautiful man that threatened to alter 23 years of routine and rituals, and make me face my crippling fear.

My name is Kami and I am constantly afraid. And the thing that scares me the most is the very thing I want.

"Don't worry," he smiled, pulling me into the hard warmth of his chest. "I've got you. I'll always catch you when you fall."

And just like that, Blaine had staked his claim on the untouched part of me that no living soul had ever moved. He had captured every fear, every reservation, and crushed them in the palm of his inked hand.

Author Disclaimer: Abuse is real- verbal, emotional, physical and sexual. It takes place all around us; it doesn't discriminate against race or gender, wealth or poverty. It affects us all- those of us who've had to live through it, or watch it happen, even those of us who've only heard about it. We are all affected. We are all forever changed.

This is not a story for the faint of heart; this is the story of one woman's very real struggle through a world against her, the people who hurt her, her real life demons and the people who showed her that every gray sky, no matter how dark, has a sun waiting to break through.

My thoughts: Fear of Falling is an amazing journey. Kami's story is gut wrenching and beautiful at the same time. She's a fighter and a survivor. She does not believe in herself or her strength. The walls Kami has built around her heart are made of steel. She has become comfortably numb, never wanting to feel pain and devastation from her past. Until Blaine Jabocs enters her life and slowly begins to chip away at those walls and allows Kami to see and believe in her strength. Blaine is an alpha male but one who is likewise so tender and genuine. He knows almost immediately that Kami is a tortured soul but recognizes their connection is undeniable. The secondary characters of the story are equally as good. Kami's two confidants are kindred spirits and fiercley protect her. Their relationship with each other helps solidfy the fact that Kami is capable of feeling. Fear of Falling is a must read. As the reader you can tell that this story is profoundly important to the author, S.L. Jennings. It is beautifully written, gripping, passionate, and intensely real. It will have you rooting for a happy ending for Kami and Blaine.
