Summary

I enjoyed this short story. I could have used a little less bedroom time and more romance, but that's just me. But all in all, I was sucked into the story and I can't wait to start reading the next book in the series.

4 STAR REVIEW: FALLING FAST by Julia Jarrett

FallingFast-REVIEW-FBThe Description

Westmount Island: Book 1
Publication Date: March 9, 2021

What if love at first sight was real?

ELLA

I fell in love on a ferry.

Sounds like the headline for a cheesy made-for-tv movie, doesn’t it? But for me, Ella Michaels from Westmount Island, it’s the truth. Marcus is nothing like me. He’s confident, bold, sexy, and oh, did I mention he’s a millionaire? And for some reason, he’s apparently crazy about me. Even though most of my friends are from the books that I read and I can’t use a real swear word without sweating. But the island is my home, and he’s a big city billionaire. What happens when his visit is over?

MARCUS

I did not want to come to this island. I definitely did not want to enjoy small-town life. I absolutely did not want to fall for a woman who puts Disney princesses to shame with her beauty and heart. But that’s exactly what happened the second I met Ella. She’s the calm to my storm and she’s making me re-evaluate what’s really important in life. It turns out, the answer to that isn’t money or success. It’s love. How do I prove to her that our lives may be very different, but I’ll do whatever it takes to be with her?

The Review

This novella is the first in a new trilogy by Julia Jarrett. The series follows the Michaels sisters as they find love on Westmount Island. Book one follows Ella and Marcus.

Ella is a small-town kindergarten teacher returning home after visiting some friends off-island. Marcus is an investment capitalist heading to the island to look into a possible new investment opportunity. The two meet on the ferry ride to the island and sparks fly.

This was a very quick read. The romance is there, but the foundation is that Ella and Marcus fell in love at first sight. I believe that there is love at first sight, but I also believe in taking it slow and not jumping in with both feet. So it was hard for me to wrap my head around both Ella and Marcus dropping the L bomb so quickly and talking about that happily ever after having known each other for such a short time.

I enjoyed this short story. I could have used a little less bedroom time and more romance, but that’s just me. But all in all, I was sucked into the story and I can’t wait to start reading the next book in the series.
