Summary: 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.

Rating: 5 stars 


I can tell this book is going to be a hit. I knew I was going to enjoy this book within the first few pages of reading it. Very dramatic and mysterious beginning and I immediately wanted to know more about Theia and the hauntingly, handsome man that haunted her dreams.

The characters in this book really made it for me. I loved them all! Donny and Amelia were great friends for Theia. I loved Donny’s snarky personality and Amelia’s  very down-to-earth vibes. What stood out to me was that all there conversations sounded like ones I would have with my friends! Varnie was also a very much loved character because how many books have a cross-dressing, physic, surfer hottie in it? I felt like I would easily want them to be my friends.

Haden was the perfect mix of sexy and danger and sweetness. Though I wish that Theia and his relationship had developed a bit more before their romanced continued it was under very unique circumstances that they ended up together and I loved all the twisted and turns that happened along the way. The pacing of the book was quite fast and a lot of things happened, but I thing it’s better then having had it be filled with pointless scenes and the story was getting no where (not that I don’t love some fluff filled moments).

In the end, Theia must choose between braking free from her structured life and follow her heart or play it safe and continue to wonder, what if? I don’t want to say too much about the main plot because there are quite a few things that could easily be given away but lets just say that hell has never been hotter with Theia and Haden there.

Falling Under is a new, sexy take on demons and the battling of lust verse love.
