Review: Fear of Falling by S.L. Jennings

Wow…. This book took me for an emotional rollercoaster from the first page and did not let go until the very last word. Amazing amazing amazing. It’s not sappy, it’s not sexy. It’s the kind of story that makes you wish that the situations presented never happened in real life for anyone. 

In Fear of Falling, we meet Kamilla, a domestic violence survivor who lived through the 7 circles of hell all her life at the hands of her father and found a semblance of a life with her two best friends, a lesbian rocker and a sweet man-whore, both with their own issues as well. We also meet Blaine, a tattooed, sexy guy with his own demons who ends up falling hard for Kamilla. Both of them struggle through paralyzing fears, and this leads to a story of redemption, lust, freedom, friendship, and emancipation from self-imposed limitations. Wonderfully written in simple yet touching words, weaved with a rockin’ playlist to follow, Fear of Falling is a 5 star read for me. 

 

Blurbs: 

“Unfortunately, …. We found out just how awful life could really be. We found out that monsters were ,indeed, real.  They walked among us. They looked just like you and me. They came in the form of the people that we loved and trusted the most.  The people whose only job was to love and protect us.”_ Kami

I also feel that I have to share the last part of the book, a note from from the author. 

“Dear reader, 

If you’re reading this, I want to say thank you. Creating Fear of Falling was an extremely emotinal journey and sharing it with the world has been just as nerve-wracking . But I did it.  And by choosing to purchase and read it, you have helped to expose something that occurs all too often. 

Though Fear of Falling is partly fictional, the issue of domestic violence is very real. There are far too many Kamis in the world , and most of them never meet their Blaine. And as the story reflects, it affects everyone. Friends, lovers, and especially, children. 

One out of four women experience some type of domestic violence in their lifetime. 50% of men who consistently abuse their wives also abuse their children. 

I urge you, please, if you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, get help. You don’t have to llive in fear. Ending the cycle of abuse is in your hands.
