Falling by Design

Falling by Design (Falling, #1)Falling by Design by Valia Lind

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I’m going to start this review now because this may end up being a DNF for me… For only one reason:

THE SUPPORTING CHARACTERS ARE INFURIATING.

Brooklynn (ugh) doesn’t have a single conversation- NOT ONE- with her best friends, Chance (ugh) and Dakota (ugh), where they aren’t trying to force her to date her former bully, Grayson (ugh).

What kind of friends are these? They are relentless. Over and over again Brooklynn tells them that he made her life miserable for years and she’s not interested in associating with him, but her friends keep pushing and keep pushing. If I were Brooklynn, I would be absolutely livid by now that they keep pressuring me. Honestly, I’d probably tell them that unless they’re going to stop harassing me, I’m done talking to them because the amount of pressure they put on Brooklynn constantly IS harassment.

It is literally every chapter that one or the other is telling Brooklynn to give Grayson a chance. It’s redundant and annoying.

This is the only book I have on this “reading format” (which is the only thing I can read on at all at this moment in time) right now so we’ll see how much more of this gets read.

It’s free on Amazon, but I don’t recommend it at all at this point.

(OMG those names. Leave it to Jay Crownover, Valia!)

EDIT 9/29/2014: DNF @ 69% This book is terrible. It is my only reading option right now and I would literally rather sit here and do nothing than read another word of this mess.
