    Everybody needs a hand once in a while

    4.25 out of 5 stars "Catch My Fall" by Jessica Scott is part of the new adult contemporary and military romance “Falling” series that centers around a small college town where military veterans are dealing with reintegrating into civilian life and pursuing higher education degrees. As always, the author paints a vivid portrait of the challenges and frustrations of coping with the indelible changes war has imprinted on their bodies and psyches and contrasts the lives of those who have experienced so much with those who are relatively naïve to the horrors of war. This story provides the added twist of pitting the veterans against those who will soon face the challenges that will test their ethics and morality but are not quite ready to hear the truths their more experienced brethren are trying to impart. This couple (Deacon and Kelsey) also gives a glimpse of the horrendous catch-22 veterans are caught in while dealing with an overburdened VA and struggling to cope with their respective issues. The challenges of having any kind of relationship, let alone an intimate one, is sensitively portrayed and I ached for both of these strong people who are struggling to deal with civilian life. I was particularly struck by the frustration of being a female soldier and trying to work within a system that doesn’t even recognize one’s service, let alone value it. It was delightful to get glimpses of some of the other characters from the series even as one's emotions are caught up in the struggle as we share in the frustrations, sympathize with the low points, and cheer at the little victories. The realism is sobering and reminds us of the sweeping changes that are needed to help those who have sacrificed so much to keep the rest of us safe. I always enjoy the stories penned by this talented author because she provides such compelling stories with realistic characters and this was no exception. I am particularly anxious to read the next story, especially after devouring the teaser at the end of the book, so I hope she has that one well in hand!

    A military book for non-military people.

    Jessica Scott has a talent for writing military books that give non-military people a glimpse into what happens during times of battle, times of being home, and how life is different for the military. With every book that comes out I become excited to get my hands on her book and find out what I am going to learn about a life that I don’t know very much about. With Catch My Fall the reader catches up with Deacon Hunter and Kelsey Ryder. They had a relationship in Iraq and came home to a different life. I found that both characters were so wrapped up in their own problems in adjusting to not being in Iraq that they lose what they mean to each other. Yet, their attraction is there. There is no doubt that what is between them has not disappeared since they returned stateside. Now they just have to find a way to adjust to their new lives and a way to come back together. I was pulled into Catch My Fall from the very first chapter and found myself losing myself in the story. I’d sit down to read a chapter and find myself reading 3 or 4, losing track of time and all around me. Catch My Fall is a book that I’d love to have my book club read and have a good discussion about. Thank you Jessica Scott for giving me a copy of your book in exchange for an honest review.

    A powerful story.

    I wish that I didn't think this story was realistic. Knowing that Jessica Scott is still serving our country and that she finished grad school only a couple of years ago, I am quite certain that there are way too many parts of this based on things that have really happened to real people. My review of Catch My Fall is only 4 months overdue. The book released back in September 2017 right after hurricane Irma hit Florida. That pesky storm seriously interrupted my reading and reviewing schedule and I'm trying to catch up with reviews that should have been done back then. I have been a serious fan of Jessica Scott's writing from the very first book of hers that I read back in January 2014. Her stories have all had such a realistic feel to me and because she continues to serve in the Army, I just think that makes them better than a lot of other military romances. Catch My Fall is the fourth book in the Falling series but it can easily be read as a standalone. All of the books have connected characters, with one couple taking center stage for each book, so I think you might enjoy them even more if you start at the beginning. Deacon and Kelsey had a "thing" while they were deployed in Iraq but something awful happened and now Kelsey can't let herself get close to Deacon again. Ms. Scott does a great job of giving us little breadcrumbs and keeping us guessing about the details of what happened between Deacon and Kelsey. Once I got into this book I couldn't read it fast enough because I wanted to know what happened. The angst factor was pretty high in places but that's not unusual for New Adult stories. Deacon and Kelsey have a lot of baggage to wade through but the story moved at a good pace and my attention never wavered until I finished reading it. Catch My Fall doesn't have a much sex in it as some of the others in this series but I love a good slow burn story. We know that Deacon and Kelsey have done "it" before but we're kept guessing for quite a while into the story before they get together again. I feel like I wandered up and down and all around with this review. I hope you won't let my lack of focus stop you from reading this book and/or series. They are all fantastic stories that made me smile in places and cry big fat tears in others. I can't wait for the next book in the series. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Raw and emotional!

    I'm loving this series by Jessica Scott! It is raw and emotional and touches on the circumstances that makes loving another person extremely difficult while trying to live life when it isn't perfect or ideal. Deacon Hunter is tired of being trapped in the friend zone with Kelsey, but after all they have been through and how he behaved maybe that is right where he needs to be. Watching her try to hold it all together alone is difficult and he's hoping that she will finally realize that he's changed and only wants to be here for her when she finally falls. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
