I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Fading Out is a story that speaks to your heart. And it spoke to mine.
“This girl has a livewire buried just beneath her surface. And vigor that radiates off her at a high volume...I need the silence to hear what she’s not voicing with words.”
Arian (Ari) Wyndemere is expected to be perfect. Her parents have complete control over her. That is until, one event changes her life causing her to finish college at a small private school. Away from her parents. Enter Ryder Nash. He is everything Ari should stay away from. He’s the same type of guy that ruined her perfection. Yet she feels a pull towards him. With Ryder’s past, he should stay away from her. But it’s impossible. When your heart beats for another person, you feel it. Words are not needed. This was the case for Ari and Ryder.
“I’ll take a running leap off the edge, right now, for you.”
“Because it’s the first time I’ve ever been inspired.”
With the pressure from her parents, Ari struggles to regain the perfection she once had in her life. Ryder threatens the order she vows to have. But more than she cares to admit, Ryder becomes everything she needs and more. He inspires her to let go and be herself. He pushes her. He reminds her that she is and will always be enough. And Ari? She challenges Ryder on everything. Even love. And he loves her harder because of it.
“When you’re broken, your other half makes it their purpose to fix you.”
Fading Out is not your average love story. It isn’t easy. Both Ari and Ryder harbor pasts that connect them on such a deep level. To explain would be a disservice to the reader. Their story is to simply be experienced. You watch two people with painful pasts fall for each other. You feel the moment when they recognize their soul in the other. You see their light, darkness is no more for them.
“...but our love means never having to dim; we burn for each other.”
This story is told in dual pov and the author seamlessly transitions between both Ari and Ryder. This allows the reader to not only understand the characters, but it adds so much depth to the story. The chemistry is off the charts for Ari and Ryder and you immediately feel their connection. Their banter will have you laughing. The raw emotion will have you feeling everything. Fading Out is the epitome of learning to love another with your entire being while also accepting love that you deserve.
