My name is Benjamin Dorsey. You know my mom and dad's story. You know Kylie's parents' story. You even know Kylie's story.
You don't know mine, yet.
You don't know what a broken heart is until you've loved someone your whole life, only to have her slip through your fingers because you waited too long. That's heartbreak. That's regret. And how do you live with that? How do you go through the motions when she's there as a reminder of what you lost, of what you could have had but were too damn chicken to go after? I couldn't. So I left.
That's right, I ran away. I found myself across the continent, playing minor league football. I mean, at least I still had football, right?
Nope. That got taken away from me too. A career-ending injury left me down-and-out, scraping the bottom of the barrel, hating myself and hating life. And then I met Cheyenne Leveaux, my physical therapist, who became my one and only friend, the one bright light in the darkness of my messed up life.
But of course nothing is ever simple, or easy.
Tragedy struck, and the rug was swept out from under me yet again, and this time the guilt, the doubt, the secrets, and the old heartbreak may threaten my one chance at true happiness, my one shot at my own happily ever after.
Ben Dorsey is running away from his pain. That’s what you do when the girl that you have loved for all of your life chooses another. But you can’t run away from what you really are forever so he tries to quiet his demons by returning to football.
And just when life is starting to look up – it hands him another tragedy. This time, his savior appears in the form of an equally broken young girl who is as beautiful as her name – Echo. She unlike any girl that he has ever met – bold, talented and just a bit sad.
Echo Leveaux just lost the one person left in the world that grounded her. Now she feels set adrift on an unknown and turbulent sea of guilt and self-doubt. She finds acceptance in the arms of the intense and gorgeous Ben. But when he finds out how tainted she really is - he will disappear just like every other man in her life.
But Ben is determined to show Echo that regardless of what she has done in the past – her heart holds the key to his future.
“Do it, Echo. Rip your chest open, and let me in. Let me see you bleed. I can’t promise I can make it all okay, because I can’t. But I can promise to be there when it’s not.”
Once again, Jasinda proves that out of the greatest pain is born the greatest love. Falling Away is a journey of loss and finding true love in a place so unexpected.
Ben and Echo deal with despair in different ways but through music they are able to communicate on a soul level. Painful lessons are learned and the past is met head on to bring them together in a heart wrenching and truly inspiring climax.
Falling Away is the perfect ending to a series that defines the very best of contemporary romance…
