What I liked most about the story was the interaction between the brothers. I felt their bond and it touch me!This is an emotionally story .Aiden and Sienna have a long connected past, through their connection with Allison and their own friendship. Not to mention their own feelings they never mention or really acknowledge.I loved that they both love each other but they argued like they were kids!Sienna and Aiden have a complex relationship, which we found out why as the book went along.

Falling with you is sort of a second chance romance and a friends to lovers romance. It’s book three in the series and first for me. Aiden and his brothers are working to make the family bar profitable again and are succeeding. It’s become popular and now that half their group of friends are paired up with each other everyone can see there is something between Aiden and Sienna. They snipe at each other, yell, talk, and are just different together than when with the others. 

Attacks, loss, secrets, and the inability to yak creates havoc for these two as they navigate a rocky relationship. It does have its sweet moments and there is even blackmail involving a kitten. It’s a it’s a bittersweet romance that if they can navigate the land mines they will have an amazing relationship.

This is book 3 in the fractured connections series , this is Aiden and Siennas book. Sienna is attacked outside her friends bar, she was definitely struggling after the attack but she finds a way to heal thankful to the one person that was for bidden to her but her biggest crush Aiden! Aidan is a very well-known chef he’s always had a thing for one of his friends Sienna but he ended up falling for her friend who they’re all devastated because she took her own life! As these two try to figure out their way and both of them missing their friend , Old feelings come back for both of them! I definitely enjoyed reading this one! We did get to hear from some of the old characters from her other books which was really awesome LOL I definitely suggest reading this one I enjoyed this book and the series it’s definitely a good one! Thank you Netgalley and the publishers for sharing this book with me!

I can’t remember ever reading a non-paranormal book from Carrie Ann Ryan. To be honest I haven’t read anything lately from her but I must have missed the first two in the series but I will go back to read them. 

There was so much to this story. But I loved how it was in the point of view of both characters. And I really enjoyed how the time of no communications built to the conversations that turned deep very quickly. 

The friends and family are also nice background characters. 

Worth every minute!

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I started off really enjoying this story. Then it got kinda slow for me so I started skipping around... then I got hooked again. 

This is a story about two people who have known each other since highschool. BUT he was dating her best friend back then and even after they broke up, these two drifted away. It was hard for Sienna since she loved him then and still loves him. She pretended to be okay even though she wasn’t. 
Like any good romance story, they eventually go on a first date. To a hockey game. He really does know her. :)

Overall, this was a good story and I would probably recommend it.

This is the 3rd book in the Fractured Connections series, and the first one I've read. I do wish I had read the other books as references were made/people mentioned that I didn't know, although I didn't feel completely lost. And it did make me want to go back and check out the first two books.

There were some slow moments, some confusing moments, some tears and trauma, but Aiden and Sienna were able to work through their challenges to get to their HEA. I enjoyed following along.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias or remuneration.

This is a standalone within a series of books, so enjoy even if you haven't read the others :) 

A wonderful second chance story about two friends with one who has loved and lost, and one who has loved from afar.  sweet, a little steamy, and a lot of fun.

I always feel a slight sense of unease or overwhelming need to backtrack when I start a series in the middle. It doesn't matter that it's a series of interconnected stand alones or just stand alone books. My mind fights the picking up book 3 and starting there. So it was a good thing, I somehow missed this wasn't the first in the series. I knew in the back of my mind because I recalled the covers but I somehow wrote that off subconsciously. Boy am I glad! Falling With You is a fun, feel good story. It has some tragic and traumatic but it will leave you smiling a stupid happy grin. No reason to freak out. Start where you want to, just know that you will be going back to the beginning! Also I saw that cameo visit, another series I need to keep up with! 😉

Will I catch up with the 2 previous couples, absolutely. I need to now! I will also be along for the next books. It's easy to fall for the Connollys. This ragtag team is exactly the kind of family you want to be adopted into. I just need to tell my husband we are moving to Denver so I can hang at a fictional bar drinking beer and trying to become the next adopted member of this group. #goals

Sienna Knight doesn’t realize what she means to Aidan Connolly, but before he can make sure she knows, he has to figure out exactly what that is. She’s been living in the past and trying to find a way to mend the break. Aiden is the reason that I came through it partially whole but he once loved the best friend she lost and she refuses to live in that shadow or even worse be a replacement.

This emotionally gripping romance captures readers by their hearts and refuses to let go. The characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers into their story of two people broken by the loss of a loved one. Their relationship is one of friends with secret attractions and with everything from their pasts standing between them, it hard finding the emotional courage and strength to reach for more. Readers can feel the chemistry and the emotional angst flowing from the pages as the author brings this coupe to vivid life in a way that makes it easy to connect with the characters and makes it feel as if readers really know Sienna and Aiden. 

The plots flows at a steady pace, unveiling secrets as the couple takes the steps to overcome the past and reach for their future, which really builds the suspense and keeps the turmoil as well as the strength and courage of this couple flowing from the pages. Aiden and Sienna tug at the heart strings as readers find themselves glued to the pages of their expressive story.

My first book of this series, I really enjoyed it and am very keen to go back and read the rest. Loved the storyline and the chemistry. Will definitely be reading more by this author.

The third book in this series, The Fractured Connections series’s, is every bit the standalone that the other two books were.  The relationship among the other characters will be more familiar if you have read the previous books, but I honestly don’t think it matters.  Aiden and Sienna get their HEA in this story, about a couple who struggle to be with each other. They have previous baggage connected with a character no longer with the group.  The fact that they both are horrible at communicating ( a common theme in romance) hinders the relationship greatly.  I enjoyed them finding out what their faults were and coming to terms with them so they could be a couple.  The secondary characters of the cats were some of my favorite scenes.  As always, an enjoyable series by Carrie Ann Ryan.

Falling With You by Carrie Ann Ryan is book Three in the Fractured Connections Series.  This is the story of Sienna Knight and Aiden Connolly. I have read the previous books but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. 
Sienna and Aiden have to deal with a loss but they are having to face the feelings that they have been having between the them.  This is a emotional read for me but I cry at almost everything when I read.  But I really did enjoy their story.

I was a bit hesitant to start on Falling With You. Over two years ago I read her first book of the Montgomery Ink series (Delicate Ink) and it was a bit mweh. It was not a terrible book, but the fact that I didn't check out any of her other Ink books, means I was not really into it. But since the blurb of Falling With You got me curious I decided to give it a go. And yeah, I enjoyed the story of Aiden and Sienna. Sienna's best friend and ex of Aiden has ended her life. And while both Sienna and Aiden are still grieving her loss, they can't deny their mutual attraction. But Sienna doesn't want to feel like a replacement for Allison. 
And then Sienna is attacked outside the bar where Aiden and his brothers work. And they both realize, they should live in the moment, because otherwise, life just passes you by.
It is a wonderful story about loss, tragedy, friends to lovers and moving on. But I just didn't blow me off my socks. Therefore three out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
