The Opposite of Falling by Jillian Liota


This is Book 2
in the Cedar Point series!  


4 STARS

Release Date: October 5, 2020

SYNOPSIS: BRIAR MITCHELL is home in Cedar Point – single, broke and unemployed. Back in the town she tried so hard not to get stuck in. A job at the local grocery will have to do until she figures out what’s next, even if it means working for her teenage crush. Not that he noticed her back then.
ANDY MARSHALL has always loved the small town life. Things might be rough at the moment – the family business is struggling and his dad’s health has taken a turn – but he’s trudging forward. What he doesn’t see coming is the attraction he feels towards his newest employee.

Choosing to explore their instant chemistry, Briar and Andy embark on a no-strings ride they hope will provide a few things they each desperately need. Sweet friendship, sexy fun, and a chance to escape from a life that isn’t going according to plan. But in the face of a town disaster, they start to realize that maybe there’s something more between them. Something with a depth they weren’t expecting. Something that feels a lot like falling in love. 


Review: This one was definitely cute! I think that seeing Briar’s growth throughout the book was really satisfying. It was interesting because after I got a little glimpse of Andy in Book 1, The Trouble with Wanting, I didn’t really know how to feel about him as a character. Then his first impression in this book isn’t the greatest either. Luckily, as I got to know him as a reader throughout the book, I liked him more and more. The situations that pushed Andy and Briar both to grow individually, as well as a couple, really made this a great read. This series has been so much fun and I’ve been left with a smile at the end of each book! There’s something really nice about the lack of big unnecessary drama that happens in a lot of romance books. The characters go through things, there’s difficult times and misunderstandings, and they don’t always handle everything in the best way, but it’s very human and not overly dramatic. It’s something that I really enjoy about Jillian Leota‘s writing in general. Plus, there tends to be an on-going message that going to therapy is normal (spoiler alert: it totally is). I love it. I can’t wait to find out what happens with the rest of the Mitchell family in The Cedar Point Series!
