Born to Fall (Can't Resist You, #2) By Brittany Anne

Brittany Anne ß 5 characters

America has fallen. The world went dark. Technology, computers, cell phones, they're a distant memory at best. The UNR controls everything within their districts in the East and the West. The people are slaves. But there is hope…

All Derek ever wanted was to save the world, and when he joined the Resistance, he thought he would do just that. That is, until he met Julia. As Derek works to fulfill his duties, he finds himself gravitating toward the one thing he thinks may bring him the comfort he works to bring others… her. He is bound to his role, which is needed now more than ever before, but Derek fears he isn’t strong enough to resist her. Can he fall for her and still save the movement, or will the entire thing crumble beneath the pressure?

Julia had been through hell, and she had no plans to go back. Lies, manipulation, deceit… that was the way of this world, and she’d have no part of it. So when she finds herself drawn to the man who lifted her up and carried her out of her prison, she struggles against herself and him in a desperate attempt to stay safe. Love is danger, after all, and Julia would rather be dead than watch her past come to life a second time.

Can they find safety in each other and bring together the people around them, or will their falling for each other lead to the fall of the Resistance? Born to Fall (Can't Resist You, #2)

5 Stars

Born to Fall is the second book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. I absolutely LOVED the first book in this series, so I was beyond excited to see this second instalment had released. Again, as with the first, this is a Sci-fi romance with post-apocalyptic and dystopian themes, resistance fighters, high stakes, and dangerous turns.
I have to say that this second book is just as good, if not even better than the first book. I am officially addicted to Brittany Ann’s stories- it was so easy to lose myself in her story, in a really great way and now I need more.
This is packed full of action, adventure, danger, drama, suspense, mystery, chemistry, sizzle, tension, intrigue, hop, emotion, secrets, lies, agendas, intensity, and so much more. I was completely immersed in the story, reading the whole thing in just a few hours as my eyes flew over the pages to find out what happens. Such a riveting read!
As expected from Brittany Ann, this was another fantastically exciting, steamy and emotional read- with heartaching parts, touching + tender scenes, sweet and romantic moments, as well as intense edge-of-your-seat gripping suspense…. all of which Brittany Ann masterfully choreographed into an entirely addictive and amazing story.
Highly recommended!!!

Thank you, Brittany Anne!
English ‘Born to Fall’ is set in the same dystopian world, where America has fallen, the world has gone dark, and all technology is a distant memory, as book one in the series ‘Born to Fight’. I recommend reading them in order as the characters do crossover, and readers will be more familiar with the background to the controlling UNR and the Resistance. It was nice to ‘catch up’ with Hunter and Rain from book one, but this story concentrated on Derek who is part of the Resistance, and who is trying to free people from being slaves and Julia who he helped rescue. Derek had always put his duties to the Resistance first until he finds himself drawn towards Julia, but he worries that if he allows himself to fall in love he can’t still help save the movement. Julia has been through hell and survived but she now finds herself attracted to Derek, the man who literally carried her out of her prison. However, she sees love as being dangerous and is at war with herself about her feelings and her fear of her past being repeated.
The couple have to decide whether to take a chance at love, but will their decision lead to the fall of the Resistance. The dark dystopian world was yet again vividly brought to life by the authors wonderfully descriptive world building which insured I felt totally immersed in the story. The exciting, dangerous, action packed storyline kept me hooked from page one and the characters and the romance kept me happily turning the pages. I found the connections between the characters to be very natural and realistic, and Derek and Julia’s chemistry really came across in the narrative, as did their angst. An engaging read and one which I definitely recommend, and I hope this series continues.
English I had loved the first installment in this breath taking series, and this one just as amazing as the previous. This time though we already had the character introductions done and knew the main aspects of what made them who they were, but I knew things are not always what it seems, this novel brought on so much feelings, dare I say disbelief? I was hooded and sucked into this, and did not want to put this book down!

The novel takes place after the events of the previous novel. Julia and Derek are amazing characters, and my love for them both only continued and became stronger in this moving novel, and with the events circulating them in this book, there was a lot at stake for them both, and not just the feelings and passion they felt for one another! The story was very realistic, say the world is being thrown into chaos. Every move you make can determine a uprising or downfall. Chose wisely, it may be your last. What if though, the decision you trust on is wrong and everything you thought you knew was right was actually the exact opposite? The book was powerful and brought on a roller coaster of emotions, and a lot of feelings!

I was hooked even more I would like to say with this one. As said Derek and Julia met in the first under circumstances that were probably less than ideal for them both. The passion and tender touch that gives that light house a shine that guides the boats home on the darkest days, was exactly what the feelings an souls of one another did for each other. It was powerful and moving. They were on different sides though, would they go against what they each stand for to find a home in each other that may truly be the one thing they should be fighting for in amidst of it all? Again, powerful and realistic writing!

This series, impacts me so much, it makes me feel more than just intrigued! I am kept wanting more to see how things will develop and how things will happen, by the way the book flows as well as decisions of the characters. The author has created a world not so different than our own, or more less what it could easily turn out to be if we don't actually realize what is going on and prevent, and stand for what is and should be done. Honestly the realism is very real for me. This book series is one of favorites, and I have barely scratched the surface. This is not a series or book to pass up. High recommendation from me! English
Brittany you are killing me. I started reading this morning. I am done. This was so good. I don’t even know where to start with this review. I was anticipating learning more about Kayla and Sawyer. But I’m this story gave me everything I didn’t know I needed about Julia and Derek. First off Derek is so much like his brother Hunter. And I love him for it. Julia and Rain had such similarities (which isn’t a surprise seeing how they were both Alans wives…I mean prisoners) but each had to develop their own strengths and heal their own way.

What the heck is going on with Sawyer? Will we learn more next book? Also my poor Kayla. My heart is so heavy for her.

Anna is such an independent, skilled, woman. A bad mother…shut yo mouth. I cannot wait to dive into her story and her plan. Perfect for Hayden.

I want Hunter to come out of retirement a little. I need to see his dangerous side again.

And the poor older woman who’s name slips my mind at the moment. Ugh I just wanna hug her. Can we get a prequel to the fall?

Also movie and tv execs can I get a show on the CW or something? This would make great tv. Or a great movie franchise.

I hate that I read it so fast cause now I gotta wait so long for more. Ugh! If you’ve read to this point of my review, what are you waiting for read this series! Romance, action, thrills, chills, bump n grid, happy endings, epic cliff hangers, what else do you need?

English Seriously, this series has been giving me hard Hunger Game or Divergent vibes, and this second installment just made it that much stronger. Dystopian works of written and cinematic art have always had a soft spot in my heart, mind, and soul, and Brittany Anne has not failed to provide exactly what I look for. From the prologue, to the decision not to read the epilogue, I was immersed in her writing, and absolutely loved how I was better equipped to picture the world in which Derek and Julia are fighting hard to make it a better place.

Overall, these two are soulmates in the craziest of ways, and they come to learn of the inner turmoil that torments them both and allows for their bond to grow even stronger. It is very admirable the way that they can support each other while growing into their own skins, while protecting those they care for and love. They fight for what they believe in, both to protect the Resistance and the people that are currently under their protection, and the ones they want to provide their protection for as well. I felt the emotions come up from the pages, sadness, hope, love, fear, and strength, and didn’t want to put the book down. I loved every moment, and very much look forward to getting to know more about Anna and Hayden in the next installment. Wow, Brittany Anne, wow! Highly recommend.

This book is 2nd in the series, and I was super excited to read this book. I highly recommend reading book 1 first in the series in order to get to know the characters and background. You meet Derek and Julia in book one so I was very excited for book 2 about their characters. I love that the Derek and Julia captured my heartstrings. Derek is all about saving others and is part of the Resistance. One of the people that Derek saves is Julia and he is totally drawn to her. Julia has been through a lot and back and I could never imagine myself what she went through. As Derek and Julia grow closer, so do their feelings. Can they both overcome their fears and love but make sure the Resistance is safe?

The world as we know it in this book is just so dark, technology no longer exits and just how people are treated. This is such a great book that is mysterious, action and intensity along with some great moments of chemistry between Derek and Julia and I am so looking forward to book 3!! 5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 English This is the second  book in the Can't Resist You series and wow they just keep getting better and better. You really need to read the first book to get the story about the Resistance and what they are fighting against. In the first story we followed the ups and downs of Hunter and Rain's relationship and these characters are still present in this book.

This book follows on from the first with the story of Derek and Julia. All Derek has known is bring with the Resistance, his main passion is saving people and setting them free. However that changes when he meets Julia.

Julia was a prisoner who get rescued in the last book by Rain, Hunter and Derek. Although there is a strong connection between Julia and Derek she feels to broken to even think of another man in that way. However as time progresses and she starts to recover both Julia and Derek start to see each other in a different light.
Meanwhile the Resistence is still trying to move forward but how they can free people when they don't even realise they are free?

This book is full of tears and joy, danger,lies and deceit as well as a beautiful love story about two broken souls coming together to heal one another and make an impact on the broken world around them.
English Born To Fall is the 2nd book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. It is a great dystopian romance novel that I enjoyed very much. I had previously read, and enjoyed, the first book Born To Fight and was looking forward to the nest instalment in the story. This book can be read as a stand-alone but I think you’d enjoy it much better if you had read Born To Fight before reading Born To Fall.
Something I rarely comment on when reviewing books is the cover, but I have to say that I’m a sucker for any book that has the gorgeous model Kamil Nizinski on the cover.
In this book we get the story of Derek, one of the resistance leaders and Julia, who he had previously rescued from the UNR. With Derek being so high up in the hierarchy the last thing he needs is the distraction of a woman but he just can’t get Julia out of his head.
I really enjoyed reading Derek and Julia’s story. Julia has suffered badly in the past and trusts no one. However, her rescuer Derek is gradually getting under her skin and she’s not sure how to deal with her feelings. This all makes for an angsty read, something I really enjoy.
The author does a great job of grabbing your attention from the very beginning and with the story being action packed and fast flowing, you really are carried along on Derek and Julia’s journey.
I’m looking forward to reading more from this series.
English Normally dystopian novels are a hard sell for me. I must admit, after The Handmaid's Tale, not much else can really top it for me, well that and the last four years of our lives had made it pretty difficult as well. Brittany Anne has done a really good job of making me fall in love with the genre all over again. I really love how she has made it once again believable and passionate with her writing and the characters. I feel for these people and believe they really could exist in the world they are in. I need that escape and really love that Ms. Anne has provided a wonderful one again with book two of the Can’t Resist You series, Born to Fall. I would start with book one because that sets us up with The Resistance and how we got to where we are with the characters and what kind of world we are finding ourselves in as we read and fall in love with a whole new couple as they traverse the adventures and hardships to find that happily ever after you so want them to have. I look forward to seeing what the next installment will bring us. English Born to Fall (Can't Resist You Book 2) by Brittany Anne is a sci-fi dystopian romance story. This is the second book in this gripping tale where the world has been turned upside down. I loved the first book and this one was better. Brittany writes with passion, and it shows when the story pops off the page. Lies and manipulation, deceit and drama, danger and suspense are but a part of what this story has. Throw in some mystery and lots of passion and I was riveted. I love that it is told in multi POV which is my favourite way to tell a story because it really adds that extra layer that connects you more to the characters. The world building is well done, and Brittany paints a devastating picture of what could happen. It is raw and compelling and has you hanging on each and every word. We journey along through action-packed adventure and all the lies and secrets, hopes and pain, sorrow, and frustrations, right along with the characters. English
