Can’t Help Falling (A Sweet Romance Novella)

can't help falling a sweet romance novella by john irvin

Kaela Theron is a movie star. She’s also divorced with three children. While her ex-husband runs about with his magazine model, she’s busy taking care of her kids.

She also enjoys a good read—romance novels are her favourite. Having been an actress in several romantic comedies, she finds that to be her beloved genre.

Then, while at a bookstore, she arrives at an author book signing for one of her favourite books.

Upon meeting eyes, Kaela can see Mason Haran is a good man. With a friendly smile and a warm touch, he works his way into her heart. When he asks her out, she surprises herself by giving him a yes.

What follows is a budding romance.

But there’s one big problem. She’s over a decade older than him.

They’re both falling for each other, that’s easy to see, but what can they do about it? Should they listen to their peers and her parents and the opinions of society? Should they ignore those other voices and only follow their own?

Can you really go on living when your heart is one hundred percent certain it wants what it wants?

If you enjoy sweet and clean romance that also has a little message in its story, this book would be a good read for you. Does age difference truly matter when it comes to love?

With a slight nod toward classics like Notting Hill or if you’re a Sleepless in Seattle fan, this is somewhere up that alley.




How did it start? A deadly virus from the Arctic. An international team of US, Russian, Chinese, and Korean scientist uncovered a prehistoric artifact frozen in the ice of the North. What they didn’t know is it carried a slumbering disease more fatal than the Medieval Black Plague.

Gideon Cole is the son of a US General stationed in San Francisco. Gideon is surprised when the first nuclear missile hits New York City, ushering in the Apocalypse. His Dad calls, telling him it’s time to head to a secret war bunker.

Along the way, as time is running out, they pick up Lynda Brodunvich and her father. Lynda was Gideon’s high school crush a decade ago.

Will they make it to the bunker in time, before the bombs drop? If the plague doesn’t wipe out humanity, will they destroy each other on apocalyptic scales? If they do, is this the end of the world? Or can two people begin mankind over again?

If you enjoy the dystopian genre, the end times, the last days theme, you’ll enjoy this book. With a Rise of the Machines, Terminator 3, style (without the evil robots), or Book of Eli, Armageddon theme, this author brings out a different aspect of what a nuclear holocaust could start. What if we could start the world over again? What would that be like?
