Falling in love is not for me. I don’t do relationships, they never end well.
I don’t believe in fate, soul mates or happy, fairy tale endings. I’m definitely not a sweet little princess in search of her prince.
I have a plan to follow and falling in love is not part of that plan.
Nothing is going to change my mind.
Not even a domineering, gorgeous, blue-eyed firefighter who seems to be everywhere I go.
The moment I saw her, I knew.
I knew the funny, curvy, raven haired beauty was supposed to be mine.
She may not agree with me at the moment, but I’m a patient man.
I’m not afraid to play dirty to get what I want.
And I want Maliya Abbott.
When her sister decides to move from London, across the Atlantic Ocean to Starling Falls to run an estranged relative’s bakery, Maliya Abbott is pretty sure her sister has lost her ever-loving mind.
Not wanting to be separated from the only family she has left, Maliya goes with her, a move that was only supposed to last a year. After all, training to be a doctor at the same University her parents did had always been her goal.
What she hadn’t planned on, was meeting Caleb Jameson. A man who is adamant they are destined to be together. That would be great, if she actually believed in any of that crap.
She also hadn’t planned on his insane, lovable, meddling family trying to derail her plans.
Maliya is a smart girl. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want. She definitely wants to go to Oxford University and train to become a doctor. She definitely does NOT want anything to do with Caleb Jameson.
Now, if only she could get her stupid heart to listen to her head.

I love finding new authors. I love finding new authors that can make me laugh. I love finding new authors that have me swooning from the beginning. I love finding new authors that keep me captivated until the very end only to leave me excited for the next one. Aidan Willows' debut Falling Completely was everything I love in a book. I am in love with these characters and I can't wait for the next story in the series to be told.
Maliya Abbott is a snarky and sassy pediatric nurse that uproots her life to help her sister follow her dream across the pond. As the oldest sister and after having lost their parents, Maliya has always been there for her sister Niki and when Niki decides she wants move to help her grandaunt run her bakery, she can't say no. Postponing her entrance to medical school for a year is the least she can do. Maliya expects early hours at the bakery and starting over at a new hospital, but what she never expects is to meet a blue-eyed firefighter who makes her want to throw caution to the wind and give in to the domineering alpha who insists they're soul mates.
Caleb Jameson knew from the first time he saw Maliya that she was meant to be his. Now he just needs to convince her of that. Thank goodness he's patient and determined because his angel puts up a fight. But with his family behind him, he knows he can convince her they're meant to be. It may just take a little persuading. With humor, massive amounts of swoon, and lots of emotion, Maliya and Jameson are sure to be Falling Completely.
From the very first word to the very last, I was smitten with this story. So much sass. So much banter. So much alpha dominance. I laughed out loud and held me chest as emotions threatened to overwhelm me. Maliya and Caleb were perfect for each other. The delicious push and pull had me glued to my Kindle with just the right amount of angst. Both had such strong personalities but the wonderful writing was able to balance it perfectly. Each gave as good as they got and it was plainly obvious how much they love and appreciated each other throughout the whole book even before they admitted it. Plus the addition of the Jameson clan and Maliya sister Niki create secondary characters that I fell just as hard for. Their stories were set up so well that I'm anxious to see them play out and absolutely can't wait for more from Starling Falls.
