She was afraid of it.
He was used to it.
There’s not much that MacKenzie Rivers is afraid of. In the small town of Windsor, Colorado, she is known for her easygoing, strong personality, some would even say she isn’t afraid of anything. But MacKenzie knows that’s not true. She’s afraid of losing those closest to her. Recovering from a family tragedy, Kenzie is fully aware of just how big an impact death can have on those it leaves behind. Seeing its effects on other people is something she just can’t quite handle. From now on, Kenzie is her own priority.
There are not many things that Jaden Hunter can make sense of. He doesn’t understand why it was his parents who lost their lives last year. He doesn’t understand why his friends don’t crack jokes around him any more. He doesn’t understand why his teachers still insist on letting him skip assignments. He doesn’t understand why MacKenzie, the girl he was falling for last year, has suddenly distanced herself from him.
Too afraid to get wrapped up in Jaden’s world as he deals with the tragic death of his parents, Kenzie has stayed away from him as best she can, until one night when they unexpectedly come face-to-face for the first time in months. As old feelings resurface and new memories are made, both MacKenzie and Jaden show each other how to appreciate the little things in life, the moments that are taken for granted. But will MacKenzie dare to fall for the one person she’s so afraid of growing close to?
I finished this book in a matter of hours. I couldn’t read Dare To Fall fast enough! It’s been a very long time since I’ve raced through a book so fast!
From the very first chapter you notice the difference in Estelle’s writing. You can see clearly how much Estelle has developed as writer since Did I Mention I Love You . I wouldn’t say the writing style is more grown up but more that she has perfected her craft!
I was super excited to start Dare To Fall but I was also hesitant because I loved the DIMILY series so much and I couldn’t help but wonder what if I didn’t like this book as much.My fears were quickly wiped away and I was thrown into the world of MacKenzie & Jaden.
I’m not going to talk too much about the books plot because I honestly think it’s best to go in just knowing whats in the blurb however I will talk about the amazing way Estelle portrayed the main characters relationships. We start the book at the beginning of Kenzie’s and Jaden’s relationship but also at the end and I think that was just the most beautiful thing Estelle did as I found that I loved their story before it really even began.
Once again I can’t wait to see what Estelle writes next!
