Title:When We Fall (Take the Fall #2)
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: Decemeber 8, 2015
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.
I have loved all the books I have read from Ms. Valentine. I sadly never read Take the Fall, but that did stop me from enjoying When We Fall.
This was a story of the “good girl” falling for the “bad boy”, a lot of times that situation is over done and a boring read, but this one was the opposite. Not sure what it was all this one, but it wasn’t boring and I just couldn’t put it down!
I really liked Rowan; she was stronger than she wanted to believe she was. Standing up and fighting for what she loved was strong. I was not a fan of her parents at all! Her mother was a piece of work and always put her down. I also think her father was doing some things that would hurt Jase. Then there was Jase, at first he pissed me off on how he treated Rowan and how he felt in order to push her away, he needed to flirt with other girls. Over time though, Jase won me over.
I can’t wait to read Hunter’s story next. I think I know who it will be with!!
