Blurb:   Newly single Cassidy Quinn is thrilled to be a contestant on the new reality dating show The One. But her excitement turns to horror when the gorgeous bachelor turns out to be her ex-boyfriend. Seeing Brad again makes Cassidy realize she might not be as “over him” as she thought—and then she meets hunky cameraman Evan Burke.
After watching his brother lose his wife in a tragic accident, Evan vows never to fall in love. But following Cassidy around as her personal cameraman makes him question his decision, and resisting her gets harder with every sunbathing, bikini-wearing day.
Cassidy and Evan begin a forbidden affair while her ex-boyfriend tries to win her heart back one groping, awkward moment at a time. If Cassidy can manage to stop falling off horses (literally), stop falling onto her ex-boyfriend, the bachelor (yes, literally), and stop falling in love with backstage playboy Evan, she might still make it through the show without becoming a tabloid sensation.
But soon Cassidy must choose between the ex who broke her heart and the cameraman who might never love her back. For Cassidy, this reality show just got real.

Review: America, meet Cassidy. She's one of the contestants on "The One", a reality dating show.  Here's the thing- There are plenty of mishaps that make Cassidy rethink this idea, not that it was hers in the first place....

I love a heroine that's not portrayed as absolutely perfect. Cassidy is far from that. She's got a lot of worries, doubts, and honest fears. She's also a bit on the klutzy side, but she's humorous, and I could relate to her on so many levels.  Fate has a sick sense of humor when the bachelor turns out to be an ex. 

He's not the one that catches Cassidy's eye. The hero, a camera man named Evan is the one that lights up Cassidy's attention. Oh, but there are quite a few problems that will keep these two apart. Evan keep having mishaps, and they both try  hard to fight their attraction.

Ms. Thurmeier writes with flair,sass, and humor. This is a light hearted story that's full of giggling moments, so if you read this around others, I'm guessing you'll get some strange looks. The pacing is good, I was sucked into the story right away. One of the secondary characters that stuck out in my mind and I'm so hoping for her to get a story of her own is Paige. She's one of the contestants and hits it off with Cassidy.  There's a few characters that drove me batty, one of them being the 'star' of the show, if you will. 

All in all, I absolutely loved this book! I like the authors writing style, plot, flow of the story. Falling For You is one of those books that I could turn to over and over again for a comfort read. I can't wait for more!  If you're a contemporary romance fan with a ton of laughter, you've got to check it out!
