Raleigh West works in an auto shop day and night, trying to put his broken past out of mind. It’s been seven years since the fiery crash that landed his teenage sweetheart in the hospital . . . and him in jail. In an instant, he lost everything: his passion for racing, his hope of escaping his father’s shameful legacy, and the only girl he ever loved. Raleigh hasn’t seen her since that awful night. Never got a chance to apologize. And never forgave himself, either.
When brave, beautiful Mia Wentworth returns to the Florida coast for the first time in what seems like forever, it’s not to see Raleigh. Even so, the moment she arrives she can feel his presence like a gust of wind that gives her goose bumps. Opening her heart to him again seems impossible. But staying away? That might be harder still. Lucky for them both, Mia’s never been the kind of woman to take the easy way out.
Praise for Falling Fast
“An emotionally charged story about two people with wounded pasts, and deeply buried secrets, who find their way back to one another.”—New York Times bestselling author Patricia Rosemoor
“Falling Fast has wonderful characters you’ll hold in your heart forever. I couldn’t stop reading until I found out if these two star-crossed lovers would be able to survive all the challenges keeping them apart.”—New York Times bestselling author Kathy Clark
“Wainscott comes back to her roots. . . . Her early fans will be happy here with the suspense and mystery that play into secondary plots, but romance is the primary vein in this novel. This first title in a promising new series will have readers anxiously awaiting the next entries.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“The characters are sure to win you over and have you pulling for them to overcome the odds!”—I Smell Sheep
“Falling Fast was [the] first novel I have read by Tina Wainscott, but it definitely won’t be my last. It was a great romance filled with passion and emotion, and it was also a book filled with love, forgiveness, and the importance of second chances.”—Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews
“Excellent . . . [an] amazing new series [with] lots of heart and hope!”—I Have a Book Obsession
“[Tina Wainscott] did a really great job of developing the characters and I really liked seeing Mia and Raleigh heal together whilst rekindling their relationship.”—Broc’s Bookcase
“This story ended up taking a completely different turn than I had expected. The book starts off as a forbidden love story and it ends up taking a suspenseful turn. The author transitioned [between] the two themes very well by blending Mia and Raleigh’s love story together with a ghost from Raleigh’s past.”—Wicked Women Book Blog
“Falling Fast is a lovely tale of lost love [and] finding your way back to your soul mate. It is done with style and grace. The story will pull you in and keep you turning pages just to see what happens.”—Bitten by Love
