Synopsis: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.
An Excerpt from Fall With Me
Someone—was it Melvin?—catcalled as Reece led me down the hall, and my cheeks flushed. “Okay, heman, I can walk all by my little self.”
He cast a look over his shoulder at me as he opened the office door. “I’m sure you can.”
Then he pulled me inside.
My gaze flipped to the roses—the roses!—but before I could say a word, he closed the door and my back was pressed against it, his hands planted on either side of my head and his face right in mine. Like right there, within kissing distance.
“So, I was at my father’s place in New Jersey most of the day, and you know, he lives out near the Pine Barrens, so service is shit.”
I nodded even though I really wasn’t processing what he was saying as I was too busy staring at his mouth. Those lips, fuller on the bottom, drove me to distraction.
“I pull out of his driveway and I have all these messages from Dennis,” he continued, and I finally caught on to what he was talking about. “I honestly thought he was messing with me at first.”
I cringed. “He . . . um, he wasn’t.”
He shot me a bland look. “That much I figured out.” His hands slid on the door, stopping just shy of touching my shoulders. “What did he do to you?”
“What?” I blinked.
“What did that bastard do to make you throw a book through his windshield?”
Oh. Oh. My heart was now wiggling along with my stomach. “He really didn’t do anything. I just lost my cool. He wanted to talk to me, and I didn’t want to talk to him.”
“You don’t have to talk to him.”
“That’s what Dennis said, but I shouldn’t have damaged his car.”
A muscle flexed along his right jaw. “That’s true.” He shook his head. “Damn, Roxy, can’t say I’m surprised.”
My brows flew up. “You’re not?”
He laughed under his breath. “Babe, you’ve always had a hell of a temper on you.”
Ah, that was kind of true. “Is that a good thing or a bad thing?”
Reece cocked his head to the side. “A sexy thing, but vandalism and destruction of property doesn’t look good on you, sweets.”
“No. It doesn’t match my manicure.” I raised my hands, flashing him the blue nails.
He laughed again and then he sobered up, just like that. Cop Face was on, and yeah . . . the low coiling in my stomach told me I found Cop Face arousing. “You’re lucky. He could’ve pressed charges, and this conversation would be going in a whole different direction.”
My own half smile slipped off my face. “I know. It’s . . . I was just with Charlie, and he’s . . .” Unable to continue, I forced a casual shrug I didn’t feel. “What are you going to do with me?”
His lips parted as his chest rose with a deep breath, then his gaze dropped to my mouth, and his expression tightened. He looked . . . he looked hungry. “I have lots of ideas.”
My Review of Fall With Me
I have to say that I have been a fan of this series since we first met Cam & Avery in Wait for You. I loved their story and wasn’t sure that it could ever be topped… But the story in Fall With Me, it runs a close second for my favorite couple in the series! Roxy & Reece are just fantastic characters and an amazing couple! They are very different from what the past books have been like and I loved that Jennifer can be a diverse writer and explore different directions with her characters.
I am a true sucker for friends to lovers type reads and that is what Roxy & Reece are. But their past has a big blip in it. Roxy helped Reece home one drunken night and a whole lot of assumptions and misunderstandings caused a huge riff in their relationship. But when a man Roxy never wanted to see or hear from again is now free, Reece feels the need to protect her by breaking down the silence that has come between them for the past 11 months and be her rock in a time when she is gonna need it the most.
I loved Reece and his protectiveness over Roxy. Even though she pushed him away as much as possible, he worked even harder to fight the walls she had built. Reece and Roxy had been friends, best of friend for many years, and Reece just wasn’t willing to let it go. He tried so hard to get her to understand where he was coming from and it wasn’t till they finally had a talk, that Roxy realized that assumptions can sometimes lead you into doing things that ultimate destroy relationships.
Roxy is super strong heroine, she’s been hurt and broken by a devastating accident when she was younger and she’s spent her entire life since trying to make up for things that really aren’t her fault, and were completely beyond her control. But even through all of that she stands tall and strong, independent and not willing to rely on anyone but herself. Roxy also has some strange stuff going on during this book, and I won’t give it away but it wasn’t what I expected at all, and this little twist had my super sleuth radar on high alert… I didn’t even figure out what was going on till it was revealed. Jennifer does an amazing job at hiding the clues and burying them just enough that you aren’t sure until it hits you in the face!
Overall I loved watching these two come together, and I loved getting to see all the old gang show up in this book! Jennifer does a splendid job of keeping the characters around and relevant in each couples stories. The heat and passion in this one is turned up quite a bit and Reece is defiantly going on my HOTTIE list! The man can really burn up the sheets!!!! If you haven’t read any of the books they can all be read as a stand alone and I would highly recommend reading them all, but if you love friends to lovers books this one is one you don’t want to miss! I give Fall With Me 4 Starlet Stars!
