Fake it ‘til you make it has been the motto I live by since my mother died.
I’m also doing a really bad job at the making it part.
The night we met, I was at my lowest.
But you gave me a reason to feel happy again.
For the first time in over a year, I was optimistic.
You and I? We’re the same. Don’t form attachments. Follow the rules. Don’t dream of a future.
Too bad our hearts wouldn’t listen.
And this storm we’re going through? The one that threatens to rip us apart?
It doesn’t care that I’m falling for you.
Falling For You is a different kind of brother’s best friend romance. It’s as emotional as it is sizzling.

Falling For You is my first read from Jennifer Van Wyk and I am impressed! I have never heard of this author but when I saw the blurb I knew that this was something I wanted to read. I am so, so glad I took that chance! Falling For You is the second installment in the All For You Series but they are all a set of interconnected standalones, with that being said I have not read the first book, Gone For You, yet and I didn’t feel like the story was lacking at all, but I will be checking it out next! I laughed, I cried, and I totally swooned! Told from dual POV, Falling For You is a brothers best friend romance… with a bit of a twist.
This is Rex & Chloe’s story.
Chloe Garcia has been having a really, REALLY rough time lately. After her mother dumps a secret into Chloe’s lap right before she loses her battle with cancer, things just seem to go from bad to worse. After an extra horrible day, Chloe decides a night out with her girls is in order.
Reginald Matthews, A.K.A Rex is the well known hit-it-and-quit-it sexy bartender at the bar where he works with his best friend Ethan, The Flying Goat. Rex is a single guy who likes his life just the way it is and isn’t looking to settle down.
Then one night as he’s about to leave the bar… he catches a glimpse of Chloe crying her eyes out. Something that normally wouldn’t concern him so much, but there’s just something about Chloe that makes him want to know why she’s upset and to fix whatever it is.
Chloe’s totally confused when the hot bartender asks her to go into the backroom for a chat and even more confused when he asks her to meet him for dessert at the restaurant down the street but she goes and Rex makes her laugh for the first time in forever. There’s an instant connection between the two of them, and neither have any idea why.
“Until Chloe, I didn’t feel like I needed anything more. Now, though, I want and need it all. I might be able to trigger a physical reaction from her, but it’s the heart I want.”
After that night Rex can’t get Chloe off his mind, he’s more than willing to do just about anything to spend a little more time with her.
BUT, there are things that neither Rex nor Chloe are aware of… what happens when those secrets come to life?
“Now if I can just prove to her that any storm we encounter we can get through together, life will be good.”
Rex, OMG! He’s the sexy, nerdy guy who has heart of gold! Do they even still make real men like Rex anymore? He is the PERFECT book boyfriend, even with his perverted 15-year-old boy mind! Lol, he had me literally laughing out loud and swooning all at the same time! He’s the perfect combination of alpha and sweetheart that every girl dreams of! I think what made me really swoon was even though Rex has a bit of a reputation, he chooses to do things differently with Chloe.
“Fuck, Chloe. I don’t want to stop but hang on a second, okay?” This time he releases his grip on my ass and when he leans back, I let him. I want to keep attacking him. Change both our minds. But he’s being logical. Annoyingly, so. “Why?” I know my voice is whiney and don’t care. “You know why. I want this. You feel how much I want this. But I want this,” he points between us, “even more.” Well, damn.
Chloe, god she is the ultimate heroine for me! She’s strong and sassy while still being soft and innocent. She can take care of her damn self but loves having some else there to help out. She is the perfect counterpart for Rex for sure. I loved the moments when Rex would go all protective over Chloe but I liked that he also knew Chloe was no slouch and she could hold her own too.
These two together… they balance each other out so perfectly, and when they finally get physical… shew! 🔥The chemistry is off the charts from the very beginning. But it wasn’t JUST the steamy scenes, they had natural chemistry when they were together that even though they hadn’t been together long they just fit seamlessly into each others lives. I LOVED when they binged out together! Lol, I love a girl who’s not afraid to eat around a guy, and apparently, Rex agrees! Lol, seriously what’s a better “first date” then to take a girl to have dessert?!?! I’ll tell you, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
That ending *swoon* I could NOT have chosen a better ending for Chloe and Rex. Seriously, PERFECT!
“I’m not going anywhere. I want you to get it, because I think you’re missing the big picture. I want you, for a lot longer than a brief fling. I see the potential for forever here, don’t you?”
The only thing that kind of bothered me, though it didn’t ruin the story or anything I was just confused, the whole drama situation with Rex’s family? I kind of felt like that was just thrown in there as a side note, I thought way more was going to come out of the whole brother’s wife thing (although I’m SO glad it didn’t!) it just had me waiting on pins and needles for WHEN it was going to happen, and even though the groundwork was laid, it never came about?
Those that follow me know that I’m more of a dark romance reader, but I like to throw in a sweet romance every once in a while to lighten things up and that is just what we have in Falling For you. Again, Jennifer Van Wyk is a new-to-me author but I am loving this amazing writing! I can’t believe I’ve been missing out! The character development, the dialogue, no overload on angst, just a steamy, witty, and sweet romance with amazing main characters as well as secondary!
I absolutely recommend Falling For You!
“I love you, too. And I promise… I’ll never stop falling for you.”
