Summary

If you look up British in the dictionary... A-list celebrity Jamie Jaymeson's name would be next to it. Along with charming, witty, man-whore, and a lot of other adjectives that he wouldn't appreciate being attached to his name. He has everything in the world going for him. Until fate decides his number's finally up.

Caught in a compromising position that really wasn't his fault to begin with (really it wasn't), Jaymeson's been told by his agent to lay low in the one town he swore he'd never return to - the seventh circle of hell, known by its residents as Seaside, Oregon. Two months? He can do anything for two months. Especially if it means getting a part in the new book-to-movie series that has girls all over the world swooning.

Play nice? Keep it in his pants? Please. He played an alien once - he was going to totally rock it. Until a certain someone who he may or may not have publicly humiliated, rejected, then humiliated again suddenly pops up next door. Self-control has a way of flying out the window when the one girl you can't have is suddenly dangled right in front of you. But Priscilla isn't just off limits - she's a pastor's daughter and barely legal to boot. So Jaymeson does the one thing he swore he'd never do - he tries to be friends. With a woman. Only it's exactly what he needs. Until suddenly he craves more. He wants to date her. She wants to date someone else. He wants to kiss her. She asks him to give her lessons for her new boyfriend.

When opposites attract, sometimes the only option you have is to leap - and trust the fact that when you fall - that special someone falls too.

So cute and so funny... Loved it!

This book was just about perfect! So many cute and funny moments that made me smile and laugh and even a few tears. A book that makes you feel such a gamut of emotions and does it so well... What more can you ask for?

Loved the narrators! Both did a great job but the male was awesome! This is my first seaside book but I'm off to find the first three and read all about Dimitri and Alex.

Absolutely LOVED the male narrator.

This was an entertaining book not only because of the writing but because the male narrator was so incredibly good. His line delivery was spot on and so smooth that the humor came through loud and clear. I was actually belly laughing as some of the lines!
I have no idea if the guy is actually British or not but he did an excellent accent. There are so many memorable one liners delivered with off-hand skill; you just can’t help but laugh. I found myself searching for more books read by this guy but the search engine didn’t cooperate with my request.

Enjoy the free book for what it is - an escape from reality and a few hours of just good old fashioned fun.

Enjoy.

Great Read

Fall (Seaside #4) was a great read by Rachel Van Dyken. Jamie Jaymeson is a British A-list celebrity. He was caught in a compromising position that he says wasn’t his fault. His agent tells him that he must lay low in Seaside, the town he said he’s never return to. Everything goes well until he sees Priscilla, the pastor’s daughter who is off limits to him. I loved reading Jamie and Priscilla’s story and cant wait to read more by the author.

Omg end already

Very immature characters. For me what was supposed to be funny just seemed immature. Spoiler alert! I hate it when very young characters get married quickly. It doesn’t make me think of true love, it makes me think of divorce statistics.

Unhappy with the lack of correct info re:hospitals

I have listened and enjoyed many publications by this author and anticipate her works in the future. I had issues with this story however, because of the lack of research or accurate information in the area of my expertise. I am currently a retired Neonatal Intentensive Care (ICU) Nurse Practitioner (NP) and I worked as a traveling nurse in approximately 20 units all over the country before retiring after 24 years. First, I was nursing assistant and unit secretary on Med-Surg while working for 5 years through my Bachelors degree. After graduating, I did Adult, then Pedi and finally Neonatal ICU. I eventually settled down in one place as a staff nurse then became a Nurse Manager (NM) and after getting my Masters, a NP and then Unit Educator. This short CV is to verify that I know how hospitals work before I list the areas I found disappointing.

The people that sit at the info desk when a person enters a hospital are NOT nurses but sometimes volunteers, clerks or secretaries who look up patient's room number in the computer. Neither do nurses collect money from patient's families at discharge. The families see a clerk in the Financial/Cashiers office and hospitals handle that in different ways. Clearance sent via computer from the financial office is usually part of the completion of discharge info the unit secretary receives and verifies. All of these people are an integral part of the hospital and have different knowledge and skills than nurses do.

Although Adult and some Pedi units have set visiting hours, exceptions are made at the patient's nurse's discretion according to certain situations with the patients or in the unit in general. I have never heard of a nurse losing his/her job because of allowing visitors outside of usual visiting hours. As nurses we recognize how IMPORTANT family is to a patient's recovery. The situation as described in this book would be an example of allowing visitation outside of hours. Family members who have traveled and have not had the opportunity to see their loved one after an accident or surgery would NOT have been made to wait for regular visiting hours except in unusual cases where it is not in the patient's best interest (such as a procedure or code, etc). In the NICU unit where I became Nurse Manager, I changed the visitation to open hours except during the 30 minute report at the change of shift (to protect confidentiality). Studies show that oxygen demands go down especially with mother's touch or voice in premies who are stable enough to be held or touched. So we encourage as much visitation as possible because while it is good for the infant it also gives us educational possibilities.

I have had families of celebrities and celebrities themselves as patients while working in both in Miami and Denver. I never saw any of them receive preferential treatment. That is because they are first and foremost as scared and human as everyone in that situation is. It always seemed to me to be insensitive to gush or bring up such unimportant issues as celebrity when dealing with life and death. The only concessions I ever made for celebrity was to show them private avenues to the unit and sometimes unlocked back door entrance in order to avoid the press. Once in the unit, we would try to shield them from other visitors in order to maintain their privacy. If there is a leak, it is usually from other visitors and I will discuss why it is not usually from licensed medical personnel later in the review.

As far as VIP treatment, I usually worked in Not-for-Profit teaching hospitals associated with universities where there were Level 4 (cutting edge State of the Art) type care was provided so I really can't say how your For-Profit hospitals operate. There may be hospitals that offer the type of VIP treatment described in this book but I never saw/heard of it maybe because I was never interested in these types of hospitals. While I was courted sometimes by headhunters while a Nurse Manager, I never pursued those types of positions. I can say that any celebrity pressure for preferential treatment would not have influenced anyone in any unit I ever worked in.

In this book, I found it annoying that the nurses were always discussing the sister's case with the movie star. In real life, they would have been discussing and providing support for Pris as the family member. If someone like Pris needed a nonfamily person for support, I would not discourage their visiting with her. I would ALWAYS go in with family for their initial visits to explain the equipment and current situation for the patient because all the equipment and noises can be not only frightening but dehumanizing. I show them where to touch and talk in an encouraging manner (avoid wailing and excessive crying) to their loved one as well as answer any questions they might have. Once their questions were answered, I would leave so they could have some private time with their loved one. It is important that family understand that just because the patient may not be responsive as in the sister's case initially, it doesn't mean that they can't hear, possibly understand or even misconstrue what is being said especially if medicated.

Visitation rules should not written in stone or be used as a power differential but are in place for common sense purposes. The most important of these are to prevent tiring of the patient in order to allow the body enough rest to heal. Also, it is vital to keep traffic down in case a code has to be called which can happen frequently in an ICU. In that case, awkward, heavy crash carts, Xray and other equipment has to be maneuvered quickly and the fewer bodies in the way, the faster the response and the less risk of injury to visitors. Lastly, in providing care during baths, procedures, etc., it is difficult to avoid exposing a patient, both in body or confidentiality. An example was an elderly, confused patient I had who kept throwing off her covers and gown so she was stark naked. She had been a teacher and her daughter told me that she was actually a very private person who would be mortified if she was aware of what she was doing. But since she was confused I kept the curtains pulled back to keep a close eye on her. Just prior to visiting hours, I would pull her curtains shut so the visitors would not get an eye full.

The last issue is that of patient confidentiality. I never would nor ever heard of any caregiver revealing information about a patient to the press. The important of confidentiality is not only drilled in any medical personnel's training but also has legal ramifications. Look at the huge upheaval at the strict requirements of HIPPA has caused for health care and patients. Aside from the general loss of respect which would probably come from fellow nurses, any charges that were brought before the hospital and/or State Nursing Board could result in a nurse being disciplined or even cause them to lose their license. It is the same for any licensed personnel. f I was the Nurse Manager of a nurse who was a proven source of a loss of a patient's private information, I would write them up, put it in their file, schedule a "talk" and it would have been reflected in their next evaluation if they were lucky enough to keep their job. That is how strongly I and most nurses feel about confidentiality.

In conclusion,I was disappointed in the way nurses were depicted in this novel. I know that like in any job or "barrel", there are rotten apples. I have worked with nurses who I didn't feel belonged in the profession; didn't like how they treated patients and families. I have been a patient myself and had nurses/doctors who have made me angry (who I reported to their supervisors). Burnout is high especially in ICU and particularly in Pedi and Neonatal because it is a hard job, physically and mentally. But we are human and I hope not as cold/uncaring as presented in this story. My father was critically injured when I was 7 years old and it took him years to partially recover. You could say I grew up at his hospital bedside but my perspective was the patient's not the clinical side of the bed and I have never forgotten how it felt. However, it always grieves me for nurses to so often be presented in a cold light.

My favorite of the series!

This was probably my favorite book of this series! There was something about Jamison that I couldn’t wait to know more about and this book gave me everything I was looking for! Plus I loved that Pricilla took none of his crap!
This book a shockingly heartbreaking twist that the end that re-enforced how much I love this couple.
Great series!
