A well deserved 4.5 stars!!!!

***Cliff hanger at the end*** ***A must read***

Annica Rossie is a new Indie author and wow, what a great book. The book kept you on edge and when I thought I knew what Lo’s fiancé was doing, was wrong…so wrong. I can’t wait to read book two and find out what happens in this beautiful journey.

How do you get over the one? The best friend that you had feelings for but that friend deserted you when you needed them the most?

Lo had everything that she could ask for, famil

I'm getting so frustrated with getting into a book and the story not ending. This book wasn't really wowing me to start with, but then I'm tired and not feeling at my best, and then wham! It threw such a spanner in the works it woke me up and grabbed my attention. Sadly a few pages later it finished, without finishing the story and as far as I can tell book two isn't written yet. That leaves me frustrated.

I would have scored this 3 or 3.5 thanks to the ending but that spanner in the works was so

4.5 *****

This book is so sweet, fun and sexy at the same time, it's hard to tell where to start!!

First of all, the characters are fantastic and well-developed. You get to know them right from the start but they also evolve and deepen as the story progresses. Lo is a successful, independent woman who is quite content with her life. Parker is a famous poker player. Emphasis on the word player .Lo's world shattered some years back, Parker entered panic-mode and never came back to The Grand, Lo's h

Do you know what I love about being reading is finding the authors that let out amazing debut novels and let me tell you this is definitely one of those. The author quickly wraps you up in her story and keeps you entertained all the way to the end leaving nothing out. I love the way she has set up the characters to make you fall in love with them starting out with the hard working and independent Lo, who has had to work for everything that she has and trust me it has not been an easy battle.

This book was a great quick read. It's an erotic/contemporary romance and is approximately 36,000 words. It's part one in a series. Annica Rossi, is a brand new indie author. She really hit it out of the park with her debut novella.

In the story Lauren St. John (Lo) is struggling to keep The Grandveiw Inn open. She is dating Jake Kennedy but we see very little of him in the story. Parker Blackwell shows up at the Grandview Inn with his Aunt and Uncle. Sparks fly between Parker and Lo. Parker ha

I received a copy to this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Great start to a new series. Lauren, Lo, is trying to save her family inn from a vindictive, money hungry stepmother. Parker is a womanizing professional gambler. They grew up together. Life events have caused them to grow apart. Now they’re back together, but can they put aside their pasts to start a new future?

This was a very emotionally charged book. I wasn’t sure if I liked Parker or not. I’m still not sure. He i

4.5 Stars

This is debut novella. Annica Rossi did an AMAZING job for her first book. Just Fall was great. I loved the characters. Well all but Jack. Not that he really did anything bad but I just didn’t care for him. I loved Lo and her ways. She had me laughing at her comebacks and the things she said. As for Parker I have mixed feelings. I liked him till the whole lawyer thing happened and now I kind of dunno about him. I want to like him but I will have to wait till book two to decide that.

Well let me see where do I start with Just Fall. I received this as an ARC copy for an honest review and I can tell you it will be. Just Fall is a fun romantic book about Lauren and her inn and how she is doing everything in her power to keep it because it was her parents dream. When a boy from her past shows up her aurora turns upside down. She is still upset with him yet feels drawn to him, however she is engaged. Lauren has to make a huge choice to save the inn, herself, her fiance, or the ma

I'm an idiot because I didn't pay attention to the fact that this was book one in a series. I would have geared myself up for the inevitable cliffy had I done so. Lol! Either way, I really liked this book a lot. I admired the spirit and tenacity to be her own person and have what she wanted out if life in Lo. Parker was the sexy hot consummate bachelor and Jake was just an insensitive asshole. That all being said, I'm looking forward to the next part of the story and what's to come for Lo and Th ...more

This was a fun, hot, romance story! It was very comical at times too! 

I was literally laughing out loud while reading this!  

Lauren "LO" St. John works her butt off trying to keep her family business up and running. After her father died he left the The Grand Inn to her. LO is having a hard time with finances to keep it running. She

This book had me from the moment I read there was a friendship from their younger years that is now coming back into play. I am a sucker for the whole old friends that never admitted their love finding each other again as adults !!

Lo has so many life struggles going on at this point in her life. Her parents have both died , her business is suffering , she has a horrible step mother screwing her relationship is is struggling from it all. So of course in walks the 1 guy that 7 years ago as a boy

"Shh, you don't have to say anything. I already know the answer. I'm the right man for you, Lo. I always have been. I know you don't see it now, but you will soon enough."

I think what I loved most about Annica Rossi's debut novella, "Just Fall," was her fierce character development. Both Parker and Lauren were intense and neither one of them were willing to back down for anything, or anyone.

Parker Blackwell is an alpha male to the extreme. He knows what he wants and right now that's his old fla

The story is a bit interesting from the start, I enjoyed reading Parker's pov because it feels like he's just talking to me. But he only got to have one chapter and that's it.

The characters in the story are not well developed. Even Parker's supposed love for Lauren is just too shallow. "I've always loved you, Lo" hello? I mean is that for real? Coz action sure speaks louder than words, and your previous actions proved otherwise.

I really enjoyed this book. The story taking place in Michigan attracted me to the book. This is a steamy novel so if you don't like those kinds of things beware. The characters are quite lovable.

My one critique was the editing was a bit spotty and the book ended as a cliffhanger I don't like waiting to read what happens, however this story was good and I plan on definitely reading the sequel. Well done Ms.Rossi

This was a nice start to a series. It was sweet, sexy and Parker was HOT!! This first book seemed to lay the foundation of the story but the ending is where it seemed to begin. Quick and easy read, with a cliffhanger. There is to be a second book and I have a feeling that one will be the meat & potatoes of the series.
Holly Bargo
Morally ambiguous.

I enjoyed the novella until the heroine agreed to prostitute herself to save her hotel. The hero is a slimeball, too, for his role in pushing her toward that choice. Honestly, my sympathies are with the ex-fiance. I won't be reading the sequels.

I got this book as a freebie and so glad I did.
I loved the characters, their chemistry, and their story. It was a little predictable at times but I loved it. I can't wait for the sequel to come out!
