Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.
Fall With Me was another amazing book by JLA. I instantly fall in love with Reece and Roxy. Their story was steamy, intense, and every bit wonderful in true JLA fashion. It seems like each book in this series is a pure gem; original, and delightfully entertaining.
“You’re going to make me want to keep you.”
Roxy is probably now one of my favorite heroines. Spunky, cocky, and dressed in witty, dorky T-shirts, she’s a girl you have to admire. However, she still battles with a past that seems to haunt her every decision. Throughout the book, though, she showed that she is a very tenacious character; strong willed and a bit hardheaded. I loved that about her though.
Reece is, good Lord, another SEXY male character created by JLA. Jesus, she can write some wonderful men. Reece is such a kind and caring individual. And though he too has made some makes by Roxy, he tries to always do what is right. I also loved that he doesn’t beat around the bush. He pretty much goes for what he wants and that also included Roxy.
Together they are a combustible couple. Their banter was a wonderful part of the story and something I just loved. The spark between them is, of course, undeniable. Though they are back and forth, have their ups and downs, and their rocky moments, they seem to always stick up for each other. I loved how well they seemed to fit together as well.
"Let yourself go and fall with me, and baby, I will catch you. I will get you through this. You just got to take that risk.”
Jennifer’s writing style, as always, swept me away. Her storytelling is purely magic; luring and very enchanting all in one. I was able to really connect with the characters and understand their way of thinking and their actions. The story flowed very naturally and built at a nice and intense pace. The character growth between Reece and Roxy was genuinely built and naturally flowed. The suspense kept me glued to the pages and though I pretty much figured out what was happening and who was doing it, the suspense and mystery was never dull.
Fall With Me was sexy, steamy, suspenseful, and an all-around wonderful read. And of course I highly recommend this series.
