My rating:

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.


in review my thoughts

I really enjoyed Piper and Jase’s story. I’m not a big “Manwhore” fan these days but I was able to look past it because it was pretty much a non-issue in this book. The romance was sweet, the sexy times were HOT and I loved seeing both Piper and James grow.

I really enjoy Marquita Valentine’s small town, southern romances and When We Fall was no exception. I find it pretty easy to connect with her characters and I enjoy watching them come into their own nearly as much as I enjoy the romance. Watching “good girl” Piper and “manwhore” Jase finally confront their attraction and watch it grow into something real was incredibly satisfying. Of course, I was already totally intrigued by them after being introduced to them in Take the Fall, so I couldn’t wait to find out the full story between them.

When We Fall was a great, quick read. It definitely stirred the emotions, too. However, it wasn’t overly angsty or packed with two much drama. Things between Pipe and Jase weren’t always easy, but I liked how they worked together to overcome the rough patches. Of course, the book was pretty steamy at times, too, and that was a bonus.

I’m a big fan of this series and I can’t wait to see who gets the next book. I’m ready for more!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
