“Your heart will pound, you’ll laugh, you’ll feel, and you’ll definitely swoon,” raves Katy Evans. In this captivating novel in Marquita Valentine’s Take the Fall series, a small-town sweetheart takes a chance on the bad boy who’s always been her hottest fantasy.
The last time Piper Ross saw her best friend’s sexy older brother, Jase Simmons, he was being taken away in handcuffs. Seven years later, two things haven’t changed: Piper is still head-over-heels in love with him . . . and Forrestville’s chief of police—Piper’s dad—still hates his guts. So when Piper sees a chance to get close to Jase, she makes her move—literally. As his new roommate, and as the office manager of his tattoo shop, Piper won’t be satisfied until Jase knows that she wants to be his.
The quintessential good girl, Piper is pure temptation for Jase. The only reason he’s always kept his distance is because she’s the last person he’d ever want to hurt. But once he realizes that Piper is ready to take the leap, everything just makes sense. Suddenly Jase feels like a new man—until nasty rumors start swirling and Piper’s heartless father stirs up even more trouble. Now Jase must convince Piper that she wasn’t wrong about him . . . because falling in love never felt so right.
This is the first book I’ve read by Marquita Valentine and the second book in this series. I was kind of worried that I wouldn’t be able to follow the story but was pleasantly surprise. The chemistry between Jase and Piper was amazing. I loved the fact that the characters stayed true to themselves throughout the book. I like the fact that it touched on larger societal issues including class and domestic violence. I like that it shows the different sides of Piper, internally, externally and in the bedroom which is very realistic to human nature. I look forward to reading more of Valentine’s books. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
