About the book
Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as "over him" as she thought-and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke. After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day. Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation. But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.
My Thoughts:
Falling for You was such a fun book.  It captured my attention from the first page and I was on the edge of my seat gripped with panic that everything I hoped for would come crumbling down for one my favorite characters!  Thrown in with my panic were laugh out loud moments and some very yummy eyebrow raises that I wish were coming my way.

Cassidy needs some fun in her life so her sister signs her up for a reality dating show.  Even though Cassidy isn't fond of the idea she decides to go along with the whole idea thinking that she might find love, but the overall experience might be a lot of fun.  That is until she meets the bachelor, who just so happens to be her ex who dumped her six months ago on the sidewalk.  Cassidy has no choice but to go through with the competition since she signed several contracts and fears what will happen if she drops out.  What she doesn't count on is falling head over heels literally for the hunky cameraman assigned to follow her around.  This throws a huge wrench in the game for both of them since they both have legal problems staring down at them if their secret is found out not to mention that the bachelor has decided her wants Cassidy back.

Like I said this book was a lot of fun and totally hilarious.  I loved that Cassidy was klutsy, it made her more down to Earth and very likeable.  She was definitely one of the funnest characters I have ever read before and I loved that she didn't take anything from anybody.  Evan oh my Evan, he was awesome.  I loved how he was with Cassidy and his inner comments whole filming were hilarious!  I laughed so hard at so many of his comments that I think I even snorted.  He had a few obstacles to overcome as well and those obstacles totally tore at my heart.  I cheered when he revealed his true feelings!  These two together were awesome and I totally rooted for them throughout the book.  I did get a little frustrated at times especially the times when Brad, her ex, was in the picture.  I kept screaming at Cassidy to run and to kick him!  I can understand that she had lingering feelings but I still didn't like their moments. Evan was my man and I totally stuck by his side!

I think the author did a wonderful job at capturing the whole reality show world. She showed the fun side and the cast of characters that we all know belong to these shows.  We had the mean girl, the sweet friend, the crazy producer, and a host who over does everything.  I was really impressed with how she created the show and I am chomping at the bit to see what she has in store with the sequel Stuck on You!
