Review - Free Falling by Lisa Gerkey

See what our review team is saying about Free Falling


Josh is engaged to Staci, but he doesn’t love her or even remember asking her to marry him. One night Josh meets Kennedy and helps her. They have amazing chemistry and he can’t stop thinking about her. This book broke my heart. I found myself wanting to help Kennedy, I can understand why Josh wanted too. But at the same time I wanted to shake her. Wake up woman! 😂 This is the third book in the series, I haven’t read the first two.. honestly it didn’t matter. This book was wonderful. Lisa is a fabulous writer. I look forward to reading more of her work!


Josh and Kennedy.... The Playing It Safe Series has slowly broken me little by little with each book. Free Falling is Book three in the series and takes you on Kennedy’s journey to overcome her past. The book is raw, jam packed with emotions, deals with addiction, full of suspense and then some. From page one I was sucked back into the storyline and drawn to Kennedy. For someone who has been through so much her strength and courage was something that I admired. She was brought down time after time but at the end of the day tried very hard to not let it bring her down. Josh, oh where to start with him. I loved how protective he was. I loved how he knew what he wanted and even with obstacles in his way he didn’t let that stop him from ultimately getting what he wanted. I couldn’t put this book down. I needed answers and I needed them right then and there. My heart was in shambles at times - like heart sitting in throat, holding your breathe waiting to see what is going to happens kind of shambles. Oh the anxiety of it all. Seeing Jaycee, Grant, Jon, Lindsey and Lucas again was also great. Getting an update on where they were in life put a smile on my face. Free Falling is a must read. If you haven’t read the other two books start there.


Kennedy…Kennedy…Kennedy…Why can’t I get the sad, lonely woman out of my head? It doesn’t matter now because the night after my best friend, Jaycee Jennings gets married, I get wasted and wake up engaged to another woman. Right before it’s time for me to tie the knot, Kennedy returns…Well, actually, it’s her beaten, broken, and nearly lifeless body I find lying in the woods. Do I listen to my head and choose to marry Staci, the woman I’ve hooked up with for months? I care about her, so maybe I can learn to love her one day. Or, do I listen to my heart? My heart tells me to stand beside Kennedy and help her fight her demons. Like a figment of my imagination, Josh Maddox passes through one night. We sat and talked while we shared a bottle of liquor. Then, he held me in his arms while I slept on his chest. I opened my eyes and he was gone. He came back when I needed him most. He saved me. I know I can beat my demons and this terrible drug addiction as long as Josh Maddox is my vice. If anyone can show just cause why this couple cannot be joined together in matrimony…
