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.

Quick & Dirty: This might be my favorite book in the series so far! It had amazing characters, sexy romance, and some a rather suspenseful mystery! All new adult romance fans have to check this one out!

Opening Sentence: Only ten minutes had passed from when I’d plopped myself down in a plush cushioned chair inside the sunny waiting room until I saw scuffed white sneakers creep into the line of my vision.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review

Roxy has been in love with Reece Anders ever since she was fifteen years old. They were neighbors and were always really close until eleven months ago when they had a one night stand, or at least Reece thinks they did. Reece was really drunk and doesn’t remember anything that happened that night. Roxy has no problem remembering what took place, but it’s not something she likes to think about. They were out together at a bar and she ended up taking a very drunk Reece home, which lead to them making out and then Reece passing out! The morning after was really awkward and Reece acted like he wished the night had never occurred. Roxy was going to tell Reece what really happened, but her pride was so wounded by how he reacted that she has pretty much ignored him since that night.  Roxy would be completely content with never talking to Reece again, but Reece has different plans.

Roxy has lived on her own for a while now and she loves her cute little apartment, but weird things have started to happen. She feels as if she is being watched and things in her apartment are not always where she left them. At first she thought it was a ghost, but then things start to escalate and she fears she may have a stalker. Officer Anders feels that it’s not only his duty to protect Roxy, but he also can’t bear to see anything happen to her. He knows that he messed up in the past, but he is willing to do whatever it takes to make things right between them again.

Roxy is an interesting girl that had some frustrating moments, but overall I really liked her. She is her own person and I loved that she was able to express herself in what she wore! She is very strong and independent which made me respect her. But she was also a very insecure girl that had some serious issues she needed to work out. She has been through some hard things in her short life and that tugged at my heart strings. But it frustrated me that she hid or ran away from so much in her life. In a way it didn’t really fit with her strong personality and it made me feel a small disconnect with her character at times. Luckily this does get better as the story goes on and eventually she learns how to deal with her problems better. Overall, I ended up really liking her and I am glad I got to read her story.

I think that Reece is my all time favorite Jennifer Armentrout book boy, and if you have read many of her books you know this is a huge complement because she really knows how to create some swoon worthy guys. First off, let’s talk about how ridiculously gorgeous he is with his killer body and cobalt blue eyes! Then there is the fact that he served his country in the army and still continues to serve as a police officer. I know that I find a man in a uniform attractive! But the best thing about Reece is his personality. He is a very confidant guy that knows he is good looking but at the same time he is very understanding and so sweet. Some of the little things he would do for Roxy were adorable and the way he tries to always be there for her just made me swoon like crazy. In a lot of ways he reminds me of my husband, so I know that is part of the reason why I loved him so much, but I bet everyone else will fall for him as well. It would be hard not to.

Fall With Me is a sexy romance filled with suspense, drama, and amazing writing. I was really surprised how intense this story was compared to the rest of the books in the series. It is still primarily a romance, but the mystery was a pretty big part as well. The plot easily kept me interested from the first page and while it was pretty easy to figure out who the bad guy was it didn’t lessen my enjoyment of the story at all. I loved all the characters, especially getting to see some of my favorites from past books. The romance was very steamy and developed perfectly. Like always, Armentrout really knows how to weave an extremely entertaining story that tugs at your emotions and makes you fall in love with all her characters. I pretty much loved everything about this book and honestly I can’t wait to read the next book. You get a glimpse into what Nick is like in this one, which makes me very eager to learn even more about him, and I have always found Stephanie’s character really interesting, so getting to read their story is going to be great. While you can easily read each of the books in the series as a standalone, I would highly recommend starting at the beginning because it just adds to the whole experience. If you are a new adult romance fan you should pick up this series if you haven’t already.

Notable Scene:

I had no idea what was going on, so I turned and picked up his empty plate. Opening the dishwasher, I almost dropped the plate.

A pair of my undies was in the utensils holder, stuffed into the square cubby. My hand shook as I stared at them. They were—oh my God—they were the black lacy thongs that I wished I’d worn last night.

How in the world did they end up in the dishwasher?

I hadn’t opened the dishwasher since Sunday, if I remembered correctly. Yesterday, I hadn’t used and dishes and I’d left the cup I’d used in the sink.

Shaken I placed the plate inside but I didn’t grab the undies. I didn’t even want to touch them. Casper was haunting me, and he was a pervert. If I’d placed them in there having no recollection, I needed to get an X-ray of my head. Maybe I needed to take Katie up on that séance idea.

    http://bit.ly/1ELQEcW Roxy is my favorite heroine in the series so far. And what was not to like about Reece, but I’ll pretty much read Anything J Lynn gives me
