Blurb : She stumbled. He caught her. She didn’t know who he was until she saw his face in a magazine. When New York book editor Kate Porter trips and falls into Drew O’Connor’s arms, she has no idea that the man with the drop-dead looks is an Olympic champion skier, the face of famous luxury brands, and a serial dater of models and actresses. Their attraction is immediate but neither does anything about it. He rides off on his Harley and she returns to her office. The chemistry between them is undeniable when Drew’s agent brings his reluctant client to Kate’s office a few weeks later to pitch a book about his life. As they move forward, their sexual tension makes it difficult to maintain a professional distance. The relationship quickly heats up, but Drew’s fame, dark past, and a life-changing secret test their feelings for each other.
Review : I just finished reading FALLING INTO DREW by Harriet Schultz. It was my first book from this author and I found that I really liked the plot idea a lot.
Drew – who once was in the media focus at all times and is now searching for something to do with his life other than to go through the motions. Yet years of physical “abuse” of his own body with various sports and realization of the risks he used to take leave him struggling to find an outlet.
Kate – feeling average yet feeling good with it and finally fully in control of her own live bumps into the – as she assumes bad boy – Drew.
Their meeting leaves both of them unsettled and even though their attraction is mutual there are forces and what others might call the #karma book cliché that stops at nothing to draw the reader deeper into their developing relationship.
I really liked the characters; it was easy to see that the author put a lot of thought into their creation
Unfortunately the focus on the developing relationship of the leading characters was a little mixed up with the relationship and kind of intense presence of the secondary characters in the story.
I liked both of them but they were a little TO present with their own story.
And the changes in POV during storytelling flowed a little to easy between the characters which made the storyline kind of off focus because it always took a second to realize the POV had changed from one person to another – not sure how to explain.
But in total it was an enjoyable read and I would like to read more from this author
