Georgia Beers has never disappointed me with any of her contemporary romances. I can always count on a wonderfully written and touching story when I open any of her books. Fear of Falling is another perfect example of Ms. Beers’ talent as an author.
International superstar singer Sophie James has been working as a celebrity since she was fourteen years old, and for all that time, she had Ray, her manager to take care of her. When Ray passes away, Sophie feels totally alone. Ray was more than a manager; he was a father figure and shield from the rest of the world for Sophie. When her record company hires a new manager/publicist for her, Sophie is unsure if she can work with anyone else in Ray’s position, but then she meets Dana Landon, her new manager. There is definitely an attraction between the two. Dana is going to have her hands full, though, because Sophie wants to stretch her wings a bit, both with her singing and with her life.
I loved this book. The story just felt right to me. That is the only way I know to describe the feeling I had reading this tale. The characters and their actions felt real. There were a couple of times I wanted to shake Dana and yell at her to open her eyes and see what she could have. I became invested in the story and the characters. Of course this is another example of Ms. Beers’ exceptional writing skills.
This story also has a good solid ending. One of the few criticisms I’ve ever had of Ms. Beers’ books is that she sometimes leaves us with an open ending to the story, almost like it is not finished. Not with this one. I loved the ending and I totally enjoyed this book.
If you are a lover of contemporary romance, you definitely want to read Fear of Falling.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
