Falling Under by Gwen Hayes  

Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she's seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.

As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.

And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul


Falling Under was a very unique story. At times I did find some parts to be a little slow, but not to the point that I lost interest in the story. It was so well written and Gwen Hayes did a really good job at describing things that it was so easy to picture.

Haden has an agenda and it all revolves around Theia. As he begins to get his plan in motion, he also starts to fall for her. One minute he has to be near her, the next he is teasing her and shutting her out. Theia doesn't seemed fazed at all by any of Haden's games or words. She feels this pull towards him and doesn't want to stay away. She knows deep down that Haden feels it too and she sets out to conquer him.

I have to say that I first I thought I had the story mapped out and knew how it would end. Well, I was wrong and the way it ended was a huge shocker for me. I did not see it coming at all and that is what I loved the most. Though the beginning was a little slow, once you reach a little into the middle it's definitely a page turner. I am assuming with the way Falling Under ended there is going to be a sequel and it's going to be one HELL of a ride! Great story!!!
