Roxy's loved Reece Anders since she was fifteen, so when the straitlaced cop finally surrendered to a steamy encounter years later, Roxy hoped he'd fall for her, too. He didn't. Or that's what she's always believed. But then Reece storms back into her life when the man who injured her childhood friend is out of prison and wanting to make amends—something Roxy cannot do.
The last thing she wants is to go there with Reece again, but he's determined to prove to her that he's exactly what she needs. Especially when a sick creep starts messing with her. But what's more dangerous to Roxy—a psycho after her or the past that refuses to let go and allow her to open up her heart again?

There was a one-night stand…that wasn’t really. But emotions tended to complicate things when the drunk guy thought a lot more happened than what really did. At least, that’s what Roxy thought and that complication lasted nearly a year when it could have been solved by a simple conversation. Until Reece comes back wanting to put things right.

To my surprise, I liked ‘Fall with Me’ a lot more than I thought I would…and I think Reece and Roxy have to claim the credit for it. There are several things I actively seek out each time I will myself to get lost in a narrative and those typically have to do with character consistency, plot complexity, stylish prose and well…a relatively happy end.

‘Fall with Me’ does indeed, tick a few boxes.

There were no TSTL moments, steadfast (male) devotion that’s all too rare and a feisty female who dealt with her issues with said male by her side. In fact, Reece is probably the first in a long time who actually wants to talk things out every time, calls Roxy out on her fears and I’m more than impressed by his decency. A man who doesn’t really run away…how rare is that even in fiction?

There is an element of suspense throughout, but I’m actually gratified that these two wisely sorted out their relationship midway through the book – and fairly maturely for an New Adult story – rather than at the end, before the suspense really kicked in.
