Once upon a time, two people met and fell in love at River’s End Ranch. Nothing unusual there–this is at least the sixtieth couple the ranch has brought together! But unlike those other Loves, this one ended in disaster.
It’s been three years, and Faith Kalani is like 92% certain she’s over her broken heart. Sure, her professional skiing dreams ended with a broken leg, but she’s happy being back here at River’s End Ranch, giving ski lessons… Right up until she offers to take over a colleague’s snowboarding lesson, and she gets a good look at her new student.
Patrick Quinn broke Faith’s heart three years ago and has never forgiven himself. But when he sees the incredulous look on his snowboarding instructor’s gorgeous face, he knows he’s been handed a second chance. Despite their awkwardness, the two of them are good together…too good, maybe. Faith can’t decide if she loves or hates that reminder, but when Patrick is badly injured during his first lesson on the slopes, she knows she’s the one who needs to step up and take care of him.
Forced into close proximity, she finds herself falling fast for the man who once held her heart. But how can she possibly trust him again, after what he did? With the Founder’s Day Gala approaching, Valentine’s Day right around the corner, and a Leap Day birthday, Faith doesn’t have time to figure out her feelings.
Falling Fast is the 65th title in the River’s End Ranch series that has “officially” closed but very glad to see the occasional revisit to a favorite place. I didn’t review that series here at KB but at another site of mine that no longer exists, you could still see my reviews over on Goodreads though.
Title: Falling Fast
Series: River’s End Ranch #65
Author: Caroline Lee
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: March 1, 2020
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Not all romances end in happy ever afters, but for some, there is a chance for a different ending if they are willing to risk their hearts once again to the person who hurt them so deeply once upon a time. Patrick and Faith will have that chance, what they do with it is up to them… and maybe the fairies.
Everything you really need to know before picking up Falling Fast is in the Cover Description – all I can do is jump for joy at having the chance to return to one of my very favorite long series, River’s End Ranch, (along with a Quinn Valley connection) for another romance, a chance to catch up with some beloved characters, and see one couple turn a well-intentioned mistake back into a lifetime happy ever after.
No, the series is not beginning up again – but, I was so glad to see that this one-time story brings us back to a world that I had such fun in. Will there be more one-time stories? I have no clue. I hope so for there are several people who we never saw find their forever love… but perhaps time will tell. In any event, I had a blast with Faith and Patrick in a romance full of pain and hope, mistakes and possibilities, and a couple who really do deserve happiness with each other once again.
I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
