Stacy Travis’s Falling for You is hands-down my favorite book on her book list. Hands-down! There is something special about her hero, Owen, and her heroine, Isla. Travis crafts their chemistry so carefully and beautifully that you absolutely need them to be together from the beginning of their story. Most importantly, these two are friends at the foundation of their love. As Isla struggles through her business challenges and as she overcomes the backlash from her past relationship, Owen reads like a steady presence for her.
What I love most, though, about Travis’s Berkeley Hills series is the inclusion of the family network. In every story thus far, it’s clear the importance of family as the Finleys support, interrogate, and machinate to the betterment of its people. Thus far, in the first two books of this series, you can’t fully accept the relationship of the hero and heroine of the story until they’ve run the gauntlet of the Finleys. That camaraderie and love provide the perfect backdrop for a story such as Falling for You.
Even more, the way in which Stacy Travis treats her setting like another character in the story is seamlessly integrated into Owen and Isla’s romance. The steaminess of their time away at his vineyard just adds an additional layer that pulls you into Travis’s book.
I simply adore Owen and Isla together. They are everything you love in a hero and heroine: compatible, supportive, challenging, and combustible. When you finish Stacy Travis’s Falling for You, you won’t want to miss any future Finley family stories.
