Believe in yourself; don’t put yourself down; so many inspirational messages fill our lives, promising success to follow hard labors, with fame and fortune lying in the wings. The narrator, Jacob Marley, of D Stearman’s Falling for Chloe finds himself easily sucked into the world's inspirational dream, and the tale of his rise, or fall, is enthrallingly told.

Jacob’s a talented musician, singer, song-writer, as the story begins, and a handsome young man. His high school voice is rendered with convincing immaturity, and grows a believably awkward sense of self-worth as Jake enters young (successful) adulthood. Situations and locations are vividly rendered too in this novel, offering a great blend of youthful angst and arrogance, together with lyrical beauty. It’s a mix that works wonderfully, making the narrator’s descent into success all the more palpable, and palpably sad. Meanwhile Chloe, ever supportive in music and love, but not the pursuit of fame, lingers like a lost dream as she seeks a different path.

Falling for Chloe tells the story of a young man falling for fame and glory, instead of for the girl. Convincing details of the music scene and its machinations give the tale both edge and power. But real power’s in the redemption of realization and return. This is a Christian novel, and redemption is hinted even as Jacob falls. But faith is revealed in an evocative, low-key manner throughout, making this a great read for anyone of any age or belief. I really enjoyed it.

Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I loved it. ( )
