5 Stars!! I started this morning and didn't stop till I was finished. Is there such a thing as Kindle burn...you know where you're swiping the pages so fast that your finger starts to get hot?! Yep...happened to me!!

This was a fast read, but oh so good! Easy to get through. Nothing missing though...angsty, humorous, snarky, witty, fantastic dialogue, heart-wrenching, loaded with sexual tension, and it all leads to a damn good ending! Old school Sandra Brown, that works in today's reading world.

Opening Line: “It made the evening news.”

This was a pretty good read even though it’s kinda dated now (1988) and some of the themes and situations annoyed me. For the most part it’s your basic 80’s contemporary romance and doesn’t require too much brain power to get through.

Adam’s Fall is apparently book 2 in the Mason sister’s series (who knew?) but works just fine as a standalone. Written exclusively from the heroine’s 3rd person POV we unfortunately never get into Adam’s head (was that the st

¡Ay lo que me he podido reír con estos dos!
Adam y Lilah son un par de cabezotas de mucho cuidado.
Ya en Fantasía, nos presentaba a Lilah, la pequeña de las Mason. Todo un terremoto: directa, cínica, bromista, irónica y muy pero que muy independiente.
Y a Adam, que el pobre era todo lo contrario: serio, formal, controlador y un poco snob.
Imaginaros ya que puede pasar cuando juntéis en una casa solita en Hawái a estos dos.

Just so you know.. couldn't put this book down all day...NO SERIOUSLY..I COULDN'T!
..couldn't wait to read about the characters (who I fell in love with in the previous book), the story, and I was so involved with the writing I lost total track of time (sorry to my family about dinner..won't happen again..well not too soon anyway).

Highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance..you won't be disappointed!

I loved this book by SANDRA BROWN. When the hero Adam is hurt in a climbing accident his friends hire physical therapist Lilah to help him out. Adam and Lilah know each other and never got on well. Now Adam has to put up with Lilah in order to recover. Adam and Lilah have great chemistry together. And there was added tension when Adam's former girlfriend shows up. I found this book very captivating and hard to put down.

I look forward to reading more of Sandra Brown's books in the future.

Adam Cavanaugh and Lilah Mason had a history: they detested each other. Both had strong personalities with different outlooks on life. Adam was a close friend and business associate of Lilah's sister but every time he and Lilah met, they clashed. To say that they don't get along, is to put it mildly.

At the opening of ADAM'S FALL, Adam had been in a climbing accident and was suffering: he needed physical therapy. Lilah, a therapist, is called upon by family to help him. After much deliberation sh

I can't make up my mind as to whether I have read Adam's Fall prior to this or not. The story that unfolded reminded me of the novel Come Lie With Me by Linda Howard that stems from a similar theme.

Adam's Fall is book 2 in the Mason sisters series, the first book being Fanta C. Adam's Fall begins with the news that uber rich hotel entrepreneur Adam Cavanaugh was involved in a mountain climbing accident in Northern Italy, killing two of his companions in the process leavin

When I read Fanta C years ago I never realized it was part of a series... Every time I read a Sandra Brown book I fall deeper into this hole of ( I can't really explain, I know what I want to say but the word isn't there just the impressions of the word). If you have ever read books by one author that has left you speechless that is exactly what happens to me with every story. This was a fast read, but oh so good!

This is one of my favorite Sandra Brown books. I loved Lilah from FantaC the previous book in this series. Lilah is so much fun and I just LOVE her. Adam who met Lilah in the previous book and had an instant attraction but cannot stand to be in the same room together. Adam is In a terrible accident and is In need of intense physical therapy and in comes Lilah who is a very accomplished physical therapist. They have a very rocky start, middle and finish but it it so worth the time to read. This b ...more

Saya lagi keranjingan baca novelnya Sandra Brown, apalagi beberapa novel Sandra Brown yang saya baca akhir-akhir ini memang sudah masuk daftar wishlist untuk dibaca. Novel yang satu ini masuk dalam wishlist saya sejak membaca Fanta C. Saya penasaran dengan karakter Lilah Mason, adiknya Elizabeth yang nyentrik. Apalagi dalam novel ini dia “dipasangkan” dengan bos-nya Elizabeth, Adam Cavanaugh.

Lilah Mason dan Adam Cavanaugh musuh bebuyutan. Setiap kali mereka bertemu akan terjadi pertengkaran mulut yang bisa memekakkan telinga siapa saja.

Dan ketika Adam diberitakan jatuh sewaktu mendaki gunung, saudara Lilah, Elizabeth dan suaminya Thad memohon kepada Lilah agar mau menjadi terapis fisiknya. Lilah menolak mati-matian ide tsb, tapi siapa yang bisa menolak kalau digaji seribu dolar sehari dan bisa bersantai di Hawai? LOL

I won a copy of this book on first reads as a Goodreads giveaway. I was hesitant to read it only because it was such an old copy of the book. It was a copy that was published in 1988, which was the year after I graduated from high school. So it looked a little dated & it had damage to the cover. But I agreed to read it & do a review, so I am a little late by about a month by doing it, but with the holidays it took a little longer. Well, I was pleasently surprised by what was inside this ...more

Lilah Mason is a physical therapist, considered extremely competent in her field despite her youth and somewhat flamboyant personal style. So, when her sister's boss Adam is seriously injured during a climbing accident, naturally Lilah is tapped to help him walk again. She agrees after some hemming and hawing. Adam's not her favorite person; she and Adam often argue and insult each other. Since Adam's facing possible life in a wheelchair, their first few sessions in his picturesque Hawaii home ...more

Definitely a late-80s/early-90s romance, in ways good and bad.

* Male lead's name is Adam, and he is very much an Alpha Male.
* Female lead's name is Lilah, and she is a Professional, but also wears tight and/or skimpy clothes . . . oh, and she's a virgin at almost 30. Surprise!
* She hates him. He hates her. But they must spend time together because [insert book plot device here]. In this case, because he was badly injured and she is the World's Best PT.

Five stars? I know, I know. Am I crazy? Yes. Maybe I just was in mood for story like this.

I can't help myself, I love stories where a strong guy needs woman's help. There was so much hate at first, then fun, chemistry... It was a little bit (or a lot) cheesy, but that's what a harlequins are for, right? I was so glad that Adam got better (I am a little bit paranoid with this stories and sad endings after reading Me Before You).

Short story with a HEA for a rainy afternoon.

I loved Sandra Brown's "Mirror Mirror" but was extremely disappointed with this effort. This book offered some witty bantering between the two main characters, but the romance was unsatisfying--not nearly enough build-up of believable tension between them. Some of their behavior seemed ludicrous--almost like Brown was forcing conflict. And the writing was not very discriptive. The story is set in Hawaii and yet I had no sense of scenery. A disappointment all the way around.

This was overall decent read. Good chemistry between characters.
The story would be a four star read for me if not for the hero’s behavior towards his last lover. It was low and undignified.
