Wait for You #4

Fall with Me

Rate this book
Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

Fall with Me is the 5th book in JLA’s Wait for You series. Even though book one is by far the best book of the series, this was one I liked a lot. Reece and Roxy were both great characters. I listened to the audio book of this one, and the narration was good. It was an easy listen. It had that NA feel to it, but also some mystery and suspense.

Roxy works at Jax’s bar. She’s an artist first and foremost, but she also bartends and takes classes at a community college. She’s close with her family, devoted to her best friend, and has been in love with the same man since she was 15. Roxy is a heroine that is easy to love. She can be a bit dense and flighty at times, but she’s also fun, feisty, and has a good heart.

Reece is a military vet who is now a cop in Roxy’s town. Reece who Roxy fell for when they were both in high school. He’s sexy, alpha and sweet. Roxy and Reece’s story really starts 11 months ago… when an incident that really didn’t happen went down. Now everything is turned around and Roxy has to try to find a way to fix it. But it can’t be that easy. She’s got things going on with her best friend and some creepy stuff going on at home.

I loved Roxy and Reece’s relationship. That push and pull at the beginning. Taking risks and figuring things out, it’s always fun to watch that. They had great chemistry and you could just tell they were meant to be together. Even though they are so very different, they really compliment one another. Another aspect of this story I loved was Charlie’s part. It wasn’t always easy to read and it hit me right in the feels, but it really made me love Roxy so much more as a character. Seeing that kind of love and devotion from her was endearing.

Fall with Me is a fantastic addition to this series about falling in love and taking risks. I loved catching up with all my favorite characters from the series (and YES, you get a parts with all of them). I loved the romance mixed with the mystery, and JLA never fails to make me laugh when reading her stories, no matter what genre so that’s always a plus. I am SO hoping that the next book is Nick’s. I don’t even care who the heroine is (though I think I have a pretty good clue…) I just really want a Nick book!

Roxy is in love with Reid since she was 15 years old. Almost a year ago one drunk mistake between them changed everything. And one drunk mistake that Reid made pretty clear never should happened. Now she’s trying to move on, live her life and hope that one day her best-friend recovers from one hate attack. Until someone starts chasing her, endangering her security and her own life. Reid is decided to protect her, and at the same time show her that he wants her, and making no mistake about it.


Jennifer Armentrout is an amazing writer. I don’t know how she does it but she grabs the reader’s attention in such way that makes impossible not to be suck by her stories.
This was a little out of her traditional NA, as it had a little mystery to it that despite not being completely unnoticeable, it still managed to keep me on my toes. My favorite book of this series will always be ‘Wait for You’, but this was still a very enjoyable reading.
If you like NA, Jennifer Armentrout is definitely an author you can’t miss.


Rating: 4 Stars.
Characters Development: I liked Reid, he was sexy and a little alpha and I loved how protective of Roxy he was. I liked Roxy as well, despite some normal insecurities she was a strong and sassy heroine and easy to like. It was great to catch up with the rest of the gang’s lives.
Steam: Hot.

take us on a ride during this swooney, suspenseful, sexy ass journey of a book.

Roxy has loved Reece since she was 15 years old but she was "too young" and he left for the marines for a few years…until one fate filled night when they had an explosive encounter while Reece was drunk out of his mind. Major signals were crossed and after apologies taken completely the wrong way, the pair don't speak for months. What used to be a close friendship is strained beyond a cordial passing, barely even hellos are made…and Reece has had enough with it. He wants to make amends and explain himself better. After things are discussed and feelings are laid out for both, ghosts Roxy assumes lives with her, become much more real and interfere and uproot Roxys life.

Reece was amazing throughout this book, he was the perfect guy to me. He did everything he was suppose to do, including protecting the girl he loved. Roxy drove me crazy at times, granted she endured a lot of tragedy and horrible circumstances, I was still pleased with the ending. I loved seeing the whole 'Wait for You' gang come together in this series. I can't wait to continue the rest of this series!!

3.5 Stars

Gorgeous Man In Uniform ALERT!

Nothing could have stopped me from continuing to read this series, especially when Reece, a hot man in a police uniform and a former military uniform, is one of the main attractions! This is a man who served and protected our country right out of high school, and then came home to serve and protect his community. Gotta love him right out of the gate. Roxy is an amusing, artistic and feisty little spitfire who has a heart of gold and will do anything for her friends, but one so called 'friend' has her madder than a hornet.

Although I totally loved Reece, I must say this one was my least favorite of the series, i.e. the 3.5 star rating. A portion of the storyline was a bit over the top for me and implausible.

Roxy has had it bad for Reece since she was a freshman in high school and he a junior. They never ran in the same social circles, but after he enlists in the marines and comes home from Afghanistan injured, she and Reece become close friends. Flashback to eleven months ago, when Roxy drives Reece home after a night spent at the bar where she works. Things get 'hot and heavy' between them, but Reece, so sloshed from all the whiskey he consumed, passes out on her and wakes the next morning thinking the 'deed' was done and proceeds to act remorseful and disappointed they had sex. Roxy is devastated and humiliated knowing Reece regrets what he thinks happened between them. She hasn't had a conversation with him since that night, nor has she set him straight as to what really happened, or in this case, didn't happen. Reece hates being lied to, so nothing good is going to come out of the fact Roxy hasn't been honest with him.

Reece has been seriously missing hanging out with Roxy for the past year. He only wishes he could remember being with her the only night they were together, because Roxy is the one girl he has ever really cared about. He is embarrassed and disgusted he was so ridiculously drunk that night. It also ticks him off she refuses to speak with him, except to cuss and call out insulting names. Seeing her with other guys is also infuriating. So, Reece decides to rectify the situation, as he wants her all to himself.

Now to the part of the storyline which seemed a bit far fetched. Roxy is being stalked. It wasn't so much the stalking angle that bothered me, but who the "stalker" turns out to be. Yeah, just a wee OTT. Not good when my eyes start rolling.

All in all, I did enjoy Reece and Roxy's romance, and kudos to the wild and wacky Katie, who never fails to make me laugh! Her character has been a great addition to this series.

April 18, 2015
We got to meet Roxy and Reece in the last book, Stay with Me. Roxy worked in the bar with Calla and Reece is a local cop who is friends with Jax. There was definitely something going on with Roxy and Reece and now we get to find out what.


I really enjoyed getting to know Roxy more especially because she's so funny. She's definitely her own person but it was great getting to know the other sides of her. And her tee shirts were hilarious!

Reece is the sexy cop who Roxy's been crushing on since she was fifteen and they became neighbors. It's pretty obvious that he's been crushing on her too but I hated not having his POV and getting the inside scoop.

You can't help but cheer these two on especially because Reece thinks they've already been intimate one night when Roxy took care of him when he was drunk. She thinks he was repulsed by it and hasn't been able to tell him the truth.

Once things get going, it's pretty steamy. For Roxy, it's everything she ever imagined and for Reece, well, he sure seemed to like it.


There's a couple of other storylines going on besides the romance. One has to deal with Roxy's best friend who was gravely injured in a hate crime. It was hard seeing Roxy try to deal with this but I loved how she captured their memories in her paintings.

The other one is far more creepier...someone is moving things around in Roxy's apartment and not only that a serial rapist in on the loose.

Naturally both of those things take time away from Reece and Roxy but it also throws them together and make them confront their feelings.

I loved getting updates on all the characters from the past books and I love how JL keeps them incorporated into the ongoing story line. (Cam ~sigh~)

But can we just talk about Katie for a minute? I just adore her. She went from a kind of goofy character to a still goofy but completely endearing one. Please let there be a book for her!

Everything wraps up really nicely after quite a dramatic ending. Things are also set up for the next book...which is Nick's...and Steph! What a great pairing...can't wait to read how Steph gets Nick to settle down! And we just have to have a Colton book...him and his Cop Face! ;)


Favorite quotes:

♥ "I'd give anything to remember that night."

♥ “I need to get them adjusted,” I would say, and he’d always respond with, “Nah. I like being your official keeper of your glasses.”

♥ “We don’t say good-bye to one another,” he’d claimed. “We kiss.”

♥ “That’s the best damn dessert I’ve ever had,” he whispered. “I’m thinking this is going to be a requirement after every meal.”

♥ “Honey,” she said, smiling so widely that I thought her face might split into two. “Are you about to make your momma proud?”

♥ "Don't hate on Betty Crocker," Cam warned him.

♥ "So fall with me,” he said, smoothing his thumbs along my cheekbones. “Let yourself go and fall with me, and baby, I will catch you."

♦ BR w/Melissa!

Short review!

I love JLA, it's no secret. Whenever she writes a new book, no matter what genre, I am on top of that shit. Fall With Me is the fourth book in the Wait For You series and I recommend reading the others before reading this one. Roxy is a bartender at Mona's and Reece is a local cop. The two have been family friends since they were teenagers, but Roxy has had a gigantic crush on Reece since she laid eyes on him. About a year ago, the two of them hooked up and Reese was less than enthusiastic about it the morning after, hurting Roxy's feelings. But the truth is, nothing happened that night, but Roxy can't get past Reese's obvious regret. Almost a year later, Reese decides he wants to start over. It's up to Roxy to take the next step.

I really enjoyed this book, it's not my favorite of the series but it still has the JLA touch. And she wasn't using as many annoying phrases as the last book (the low point being "Holy granola bar" in book 3). None of that was in this book and I appreciated it. The suspense story was fairly predictable but it added a bit of a thrill to an already great story. I really want to know more about Henry, who wronged Roxy and her friend Charlie years ago. And I want to know .

Overall, a really great and fun read. I'd write a much classier/better review with images that this book deserves, but I have almost no free time anymore.

Roxy was fun an spirited and I enjoyed reading about her character. I loved that she never conformed to "normalcy" and that she just let her quirky and artistic personality be the life of the party. Her and Reece made a wonderful couple and I never once doubted that they belonged together.

Overall this is a fantastic book and a great addition to this series. I loved getting some past characters too and was happy they didn't take over any part of the book. The book could easily be read as a standalone but I still recommend reading the other books in this series, even if it's out of order, since they're so good.

Am fost impresionată de personajele puternice, umane, pe care autoarea ni le-a prezentat. De faptul că, fiecare dintre ele, este capabil să acționeze și să recunoască atunci când greșește. De asemenea, am apreciat faptul că au reapărut pe parcursul cărții și celelalte personaje ale seriei: Jax și Calla; Jase și Teresa; Cam și Avery.

Lasă-mă să te iubesc este cartea care te trece prin toate stările emoționale posibile, te face să-ți dorești să te cerți cu personajele atunci când acestea greșesc, să le ștergi lacrimile și să-i aliniatunci când suferă...

O superbă poveste de dragoste care îți rămâne în suflet!

Das Buch bekommt von mir nur 4 Sterne, weil ich die Reihe an sich so sehr mag. Es war für mich dennoch der schwächste Band bisher für mich. Mochte die ersten beiden einfach am meisten :)
Mich stören diese Krimi-Elemente mehr, als dass sie für mich etwas zu Spannung beitragen. Habe relativ früh im Buch eine Idee gehabt wer hinter alledem steckt und leider hatte ich am Ende sogar recht. Und irgendwie fehlte mir da ein bisschen der Fokus drauf, das wurde am Ende nur schnell noch aufgeklärt, ohne ein Motiv oder so zu durchleuchten. Daher ziehe ich auch den Stern ab, denn wenn man davon mal absieht, war es ein toller New Adult Roman!
Mit Armentrouts gewohnt tollem Schreibstil wird die Geschichte von Roxy und Reece erzählt. Beide mochte ich wirklich gern und Reece als Polizist in Uniform ist ja nunmal so ziemlich der Traum jeder Frau :D
Auch die Botschaft des Buches fand ich schön und auch der Fokus auf dem Thema "Freundschaften" gefiel mir sehr! Freue mich schon auf den nächsten Band, da ich sehr gespannt auf unseren dortigen männlichen Protagonisten bin!

I've really enjoy this series and totally forgot this was on my Kindle. So, I was surprised and happy to come across it!

This was a super quick, fun and sexy read. This story is about Roxanne Ark, the bartender who works at Mona's, and Reece Anders, the cop and friend of Jax's, both of whom we meet in Stay with Me, the previous book in the Wait for You series.

 photo Fall_zpsipcqf329.jpg

Roxy's had a crush on Reece since they were teenagers. They've been neighbours, friends and right now, a misunderstanding has them on the outs. As these two find their way to each other, there's lots going on around them. Some of it's very emotional as Roxy clings to the past and is forced to move on...

and some of it's suspenseful and creepy...

Reece is hot, protective and all around a great guy. It's so easy to see how Roxy's been pinning for him for years. Now Roxy's quirky, funny and at times, I just had to shake my head. I liked her but found it hard to believe that she was in serious denial about the danger that was right around her!

Roxy and Reece were cute, sexy and hot together.

"I'm scared too. And there are times I question what I deserve, but we're in this together. So fall with me. Let yourself go and fall with me, and baby, I will catch you. I will get you through this.You just got to take that risk."

Overall, it was a really enjoyable read. The story was bittersweet in that it reminds you that "...time...it was short and never promised." and that one moment in time can drastically alter your life forever.

3.5 stars rounded up -

I love this series. I truly do… which makes this review a bit harder to write.

I didn’t love this installment.

I am breaking my own heart by saying that out loud.

So… the story. If you’ve read the series here, you know that Roxie works in the bar that is owned by Jax. Kinda quiet … has a thing for Officer Reece Anders, but won’t admit it. Well, something happened between her and Reece… sort of, and they haven’t been speaking for the past 11 months. Unless you call sidelong glances and looks of panic before running off any kind of conversation. When Reece has had enough and confronts Roxie she has to decide if she’s ready to possibly have her heart stomped on again because he’s ready to lay it all on the line.

But that’s not all. Roxie’s best friend has been in a long term care facility for years and watching him waste away is killing her and when the man who put him there is released from prison she struggles with the pain that brings. Add to the fact that someone out there is stalking women and the crimes are escalating and Roxie is dealing with a lot of crap right now.

I adore Roxie … I love her snark and I love her wit … and I have a deep appreciation for a girl who is addicted to t-shirts like I am. I really enjoyed her as a character here and I loved getting to know more about her past and finding out all about her.

But I really felt like she made some very stupid decisions.

I don’t mean stupid decisions like I didn’t agree with them, I mean stupid decisions like if she would have actually stopped to think for a minute about the things that have happened she should have come to a different conclusion than the ones that she did. Especially considering the circumstances that are happening in neighboring areas.

So Roxie as a character. I loved the layers that Armentrout gives her… the guilt she lives with, the way she’s trying to live her life for her best friend, that’s all really well done. Her struggles she has as she sees who he used to be and who he is now is just heartbreaking to read.

I think part of my problem with this story lies with Reece. I don’t know … I just didn’t click with him and I don’t really know if I liked him and Roxie together. Oh sure… I mean, I liked them together together, but I didn’t love their chemistry I think like I have the other characters in this series. Plus, once something about a character starts to bother me, I can’t stop having it bother me, and if I’m being honest, I really hated some of the phrases that Reece used. Well, okay… one.

“I’m going to be in you.”
“I need to be in you.”
“I regret getting in you.”
“the only times I’ve been in you have been too fast.”

I don’t know what it is, but this just makes me

 photo gross_zpshy5amara.gif

I just felt … I guess like Reece, that everytime they were together it was rushed and while intense and passionate, I just didn’t feel the love between them.

Like I said, it pains me to write this because I love this series and the characters here, these two just didn’t work for me.

Thank you to Avon books for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.

Fall With Me es el cuarto libro de los seis que forman la serie Wait For You creada por la autora Jennifer L. Armentrout y narra la historia de Roxy y Reece, personajes secundarios en el tercer libro.

Este libro era uno de los mas que esperaba poder leer ( junto con la historia de Brock y Jillian ) por lo que inicie la lectura saltando de la emocion, esperaba que fuera tan buena o mas que los libros anteriores pero la realidad es que supero mis mas altas expectativas, en parte porque hacia bastante tiempo que habia leido el libro anterior y por otra parte porque siempre que comienzo un libro de esta autora se que va ser una buena lectura, he leido muchas de sus historias y todas me han gustado ( en mayor o menor medida ) pero siempre me entretienen y me enganchan.

Uno de los aspectos que mas me gusta de esta serie es que a pesar de llevar cuatro libros leidos ( por el momento ) nunca se me hacen parecidos o repetitivos, todas las novelas son distintas y originales, y eso no lo encuentro muy a menudo.

Reconozco que ponerle cinco estrellas pueda parecer un poco excesivo para algunos pero es que esta historia me gusto tanto que no podia ponerle menos puntuacion, para mi se merece la mayor puntuacion, no solo por el buen rato que me hizo pasar sino tambien por los maravillosos personajes que encuentras en esta historia y no hablo solo de Reece y Roxy.

En fin, una lectura atrapante, entretenida, con escenas divertidisimas y con un desarrollo impresionante, si eres fan de la autora no puedes dejar de leer este libro y si no lo eres tampoco, ya que para mi es un must read. Totalmente recomendado!

5 Estrellas!!!

This is probably the weakest rating which I give the book of Wait for You series. But three stars is still I like it! Just saying.

"...we’re in this together. So fall with me."

About the story. Roxy is in love with Reece for years. But it seems that for them has never been right time. After one of such event their friendship ends in misunderstanding. Throughout eleven months they remain at odds. Then when the book begins. He has enough coolness that is between them and begins to push her. To start over.

They did not start out too well. She has to confess to lying, which again shaken their "friendship". Or at least it looks that way. Circumstances change when threatened her danger.

Heroine. Roxanna "Roxy" Ark. Painter. Graphic designer. Working in Mona's bar. She has a friend, Charlie who has a head injury and never again will live normally. This affected her whole life. With what she could never cope with.

Hero. Reece Anders. The former soldier. Policeman. On the SWAT team. He also has a lot of problems on his mind. But trying to deal with them as best he can.

Thumb down. My problem with this book starts at the very beginning. Eleven months. Not quite catch why now? There is really no good reason. He just starts talking to her and wants to re-friendship and more. This is the first thing I do not like. Almost a year its a lot of time and I would have liked some explanation, besides I'm sick of it.

In addition. A little colorless characters. She gets on my nerves. Her uncertainty, constant doubt and denial is annoying. I can not too much to say about him as well. He tries to be with her clear, start again, twice, and when she gives up, he fight and cares about her. Not allow her to make foolish decisions. Thank God! But despite everything it is pretty unremarkable. And a lot of reps. So I know that he does not forgive lying, so I know her girly parts works with him.

Thumb up. Supporting characters. We meet again the whole gang. And these scenes are mega fun and good. We can learn more about their future and very adds color reading. Katie again entertain to tears! I adore her and can not disagree with when she called Roxy stupid. Sad but it's true.

The action. How is it in books J. Lynn, they have something extra. Lots of action beyond romance. The whole thing with her friend Charlie is beautiful and makes you cry. Really all the action with stalking is quite good. Predictable but good. It is all mixed with their relationship in a good way.

Sex scenes are pretty good too. This book is not erotic so do not expect that much, but there are some interesting scenes. A little tension and dirty mouth.

To the end. That all good and bad, are mixed together and fact that it is part of a Wait for You series meant that I may not love it but I like it anyway. And I look forward to the next part.

The love and adoration for this series continues with "Fall with Me", the forth installment and from my POV, the most intense and action packed of them all. Roxy and Reece were a very solid couple, with a steamy history and kind of second chances element into it, but I loved them. Their story made me gasp until the last page and Jennifer took this series to a new level, with a darker and more intense twist.

Roxy has been in love with Reece since she was 15 years old and a drunk one night stand with him was everything she needed to fuel that fire more. But after that passionate night, Reece doesn't seem to be interested in pursuing a relationship with her, leaving Roxy heartbroken. She finally manages to put behind this unrequited love and try to move forward, but things will become dangerous for her when a very crazy person will go after her and the Police will be involved. Reece's protective side will kick in and in the meantime, he will realize the fool he was for letting Roxy go.

The story is extremely action packed and with a lot of twist. It was by far the most complex and breathtaking, because it delivered a lot of surprised which leave you gasping. I loved Jennifer style and originality and the way the crafted Roxy. Reece was not particularly fantastic, but Roxy was so funny, so artistic and so head in the clouds girl. She was also brave and independent, things that made you want to get to know her better. 

One big bonus for this book was having the gang all together again and seeing them in action. I just love this sense of unity and the way they love and keep each other safe. From my POV this is one of the best Romance series out there and I just hope Jennifer will keep on writing stories like this, because they are so gooood, you become addicted and don't want it to end. 

5 stars!!

Here is what JLynn had to say about the pre-order bonus scene:

We have a Cam and Avery bonus scene for those who order Fall With Me between now and April 9th. This bonus scene ties into something that is going on in the scene they are in. *Wink* *Wink*

- The bonus is not included in your order (just like always)

As a side note, this is going to be the last bonus scene that I'm going to be able to do for a while due to time committments and so on, so I hope Cam and Avery go out with a bang. ~Jennifer Armentrout

Here is a link to the first chapter of Fall with Me

This story will be about Roxy/Reece. I'm excited that Roxy and Reece will be getting a story! I was really curious about what was or wasn't going on with them in Stay with Me. Roxy is a graphic design student that works at the bar Mona's. Reece is a cop who is friends with Jax. He was also in the Marines with Jax.

I was worried that Cam, Avery, Tess, and Jase wouldn't really be in Reece/Roxy's story since I assume it will take place in Calla's hometown. However, Jennifer said that the old gang will make appearances in the rest of the books. Yay so happy to hear that. JLynn also said that there will be a wedding and baby in the series. Cam and Avery are engaged so I hope the wedding is theirs. I hope Cam/Avery have a baby!

Here is a link to what JLynn said about Fall with Me

That preview was sad :(

JLynn mentioned that Nick will be getting a story! The MMA fighter named Brock will be getting a story too. JLynn said a while back that Steph will be getting a story so I assume her story will be with one of those guys.

He adorado la historia de Roxy y Reece, my god. Ha sido frenética.
Digamos que Roxy es la compañera de trabajo de Calla y Jax (protas del anterior libro) y Reece es policía (y es el mejor amigo de Jax). Me parece increíble como se van uniendo todos los personajes que van saliendo y creando las parejitas y como todos están creando una gran familia de amigos.
Hace 11 meses Roxy llevó a casa Reece después de una borrachera. Pasaron ciertas cosas y desde entonces no se hablan. Pero ambos han sido muy buenos amigos y para Roxy, Reece siempre ha sido su crush. Así que partimos la historia a finales de verano con Reece intentando acercarse a Roxy de nuevo, pero ella ha alzado un muro a su alrededor porque no quiere ser herida, así que Reece lo tendrá algo complicado al principio, pero el amor está ahí y no tardará en surgir. Además, en casa de Roxy empiezan a pasar cosas muy raras que al principio no toma muy en serio pero después tendrá que enfrentarse a ellas y no será nada fácil, al igual que enfrentarse a su pasado para llegar a ser feliz con Reece.
La historia de amor entre ellos me ha parecido muy bonita. Quizá no es mi favorita de las 4 que llevo de esta saga, pero aún así me han enganchado y he disfrutado de sus momentos. Aunque debo decir que en esta ocasión me ha entusiasmado aún más el drama con todo lo que la sucedía a la pobre Reece.
Sospecho algo sobre Cam y Avery, toca esperar a los siguientes libros para saber si mis sospechas son ciertas XD

Warning: this book features an extremely hot member of the police force.

True...the story is somewhat predictable. And true, it can sometimes be (for me) overly sexy. But hey, what's not to love about a story that includes a feisty female, a hot cop, and plenty of stalker-related danger and heart-wrenching moments?!

I'm guess I'm just a sucker for a romance book with beautiful lines. Example:
"I love you, Roxy.(...) You wanted to hear me say it again. I'm going to say it so much that you get tired of hearing it."
(...)"I don't think I can ever get tired of hearing that."

“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.”

A gorgeous NA friends-to-lovers romance with wonderful characters, a touch of mystery/suspense and a whole lot of heart.

4 stars

I confess that I delayed reading this book because I wasn’t a huge fan of the previous one – Stay with Me. It was such a huge deviation from the original books in the series and for me the story really dragged. But this book recaptured all of the JLA magic that has made me such a huge fan of hers, and I absolutely loved it!

Roxy and Reece were introduced in the last book - Roxy is a bartender at Mona’s bar, and Reece is a police officer and good friend of Jax. Roxy and Reece have known each other since they were teenagers, and have grown to become close friends over the years. Roxy has crushed on him since she first laid eyes on him at 15 years old, and 11 months ago their friendship took a turn when they hooked up after a drunken night out… or did they? Reece’s regret over that night shattered Reece’s fantasies once and for all and so, full of hurt and embarrassment, she has completely withdrawn from him, pushing him away to try and move on with her life and get over him.

In an emotional twist to the story, Roxy’s best friend from childhood is in a long-term care facility in an almost-vegetative state after a brutal attack years previously. Roxy has remained incredibly devoted to Charlie, visiting him weekly and sharing her life with him even though he is unable to respond to her in any way. Now, the man whose attack left Charlie so heartbreakingly disabled has been released from prison and he wants to see both her and Charlie in order to make amends. Roxy is in no way ready to see the man who destroyed her best friend, and when strange things start happening around her house and it looks as if she is the target of a stalker, she knows exactly who to blame.

I love Roxy! Sweet and quirky, she’s a real sweetheart and immediately loveable. I could relate to her, and really enjoyed her as a heroine. And Reece… wow. Strong, sexy and slightly alpha, Reece is the one who is there for Roxy when her life is shaken up yet again. His version of the events from 11 months ago is vastly different to hers, but he’s decided that enough is enough and he wants her back in his life. As a returned serviceman turned town cop, he has been through his own hell and Roxy was there for him when he needed her, he intends to do the same. And he has no intention of doing it as her friend.

“I'd give anything to remember that night.”

I love the dynamic between these two. It’s so glaringly obvious that there is not only attraction between them, but also a deep emotional connection, and the back and forth as they finally open up to each other about their feelings and Roxy’s struggles to overcome her fears while Reece lays it all out for her is really well done. But even though there’s some back-and-forth between them as they finally address the past and figure out their way forward, at the same time it feels easy and natural as they slip back into friendship and then straight into something more, and it’s sweet, hot, romantic, and beautifully swoony.

“I'm scared too. And there are times I question what I deserve, but we're in this together. So fall with me. Let yourself go and fall with me, and baby, I will catch you. I will get you through this. You just got to take that risk.”

I love Reece! His protectiveness over Roxy and his determination to build something between them is gorgeous, and the way he is there for his girl absolutely melted my heart. And I was so proud of Roxy as she put her faith in him again. These are two are well developed and completely loveable characters, and I thought their honesty and the way they opened their hearts to each other was beautiful.

“You’re going to make me want to keep you.”

But the threats against Roxy are increasing, and the addition of the mystery/suspense aspect of the story creates a great sense of intensity as she is faced with real danger and Reece steps in to protect her while he hunts down the bad guy.

I loved this story. The romance is beautiful, the mystery and suspense is tied in really well, and the emotion is beautifully (and heartbreakingly) written. The character dynamics are absolutely fantastic, and I loved watching the development of Roxy’s character as she perseveres through it all, deals with her past and figures out what it is she truly wants – with the luscious Reece standing strong by her side. As expected from JLA there are lots of sweet and fun moments, great banter and some laugh out loud moments – especially from Roxy’s loving and protective family, and from the rest of the characters from the series who all make an appearance.

“No. Seriously … I don’t ever want to hear my sister’s name and the word pole in the same sentence that involves dancing.” Cam glanced at Katie, wielding a slotted spatula, causing Jacob to sidestep a spittle of grease. “No offense.”
She shrugged a shoulder. “None taken. Only the few and the proud can handle it.”
I scrunched my nose. “Isn’t that the Marines’ motto?”
“Yes,” sighed Reece.

Although the series has taken a bit of a swing from where it all started, I really liked this instalment, and am looking forward to reading Nick’s book next.

4 stars.

I want to start by saying I adored the previous books in this series. Like actually adored. This one, though... Well, it didn't live up to my expectations. Fall with Me follows Roxy and Reece, whom we met in Stay with Me. Like Stay with Me, this one doesn't take place in college, but we still get to see glimpses of previous characters. I had quite a few issues with this book that I just couldn't get past, and I hate that I couldn't because I really wanted to love this.

Roxy works at Mona's, and she does a great job there. She has a routine that involves visiting her best friend in the hospital every week. Charlie has been there for years, and doesn't seem to be getting better. When his attacker is released from prison, he goes to visit Charlie, and wants to talk to Roxy too, but she won't have anything to do with him. And since instances of violence are increasing in the town, she has good reason. Roxy's life gets even more crazy when Reece comes back into it. They had a night together a while ago, and since then they've stayed away from each other. But now that Roxy could be in danger, Reece will do anything to make sure she stays safe.

I liked Roxy well enough - she's spunky and funny, and I love her t-shirts. I also sympathized with her a lot because of Charlie. But honestly, the decisions she makes.. they're kind of ridiculous. I mean, she let a guy think they had sex one night and never bothered to correct him over the next few years? Moreover, weird stuff starts happening in her house and she doesn't even consider telling the police or anyone about it. She brushes everything off despite the attacks going on. So yeah, Roxy's decisions really pissed me off.

Then there's Reece. He's the standard incredibly hot and ripped and charming love interest. I wish there was some variation, because every guy in NA now is just blending together in my mind. Reece is really protective of Roxy, which is sweet to see at times, but pissing off at other times. Also, he keeps calling her 'babe' every chance he gets, and I just found that kind of degrading. Why can't he say her freaking name?

Some scenes in this book seemed reused to me, and I feel like there's just a general similar plotline in this and Stay with Me, with variations on some things. The whole mystery aspect of this one didn't really appeal to me, mostly because the motivation behind the things that occurred didn't make sense. You'll get what I mean if you read the book. The danger didn't feel like danger because it was just kind of ridiculous.

I feel terrible that I don't have many nice things to say about this, because it's JLA and I love her. But I think I'm just done with the NA genre. I'll still love all her YA stuff! Fall with Me is good if you adore NA, so go for it if you do. It just wasn't really for me.

*Thank you to HarperCollins for providing me with an eARC for review*

Not my fave!! I had some issues throughout the book, mainly the idiocy of the heroine at times. I got so frustrated with her line of thinking. She seriously thought she had a ghost in her house. If I came home to some of the stuff that she did, yeah I'd GTF out of dodge! Not the smartest chick I've seen, or read about! That is all.

"Fall with me" war nun das 4. Buch aus der "With You" Reihe von J.Lynn, dass ich eingeatmet und für sehr gut befunden habe, deshalb kann und will ich mal wieder nicht weniger als 5 Sterne geben!!!
Die Autorin trifft mit ihrem flüssigen und mitreißenden Schreibstil momentan genau einen Nerv in mir, und ich lasse mich in jede Geschichte zu 100 Prozent fallen.
Roxy und Reese waren für mich jetzt zwar nicht das interessanteste Pärchen der Reihe, definitiv aber immer noch genial! (Ladies, Reese trägt Polizei-Uniform, Holla die Waldfee!)
Dafür hat mich die Geschichte, die Roxy zu der Person gemacht hat, die sie in diesem Buch war, umso mehr berührt, und zu Tränen gerührt!
Und kann nur wieder sagen: WER DIE REIHE NICHT LIEST, IST SELBER SCHULD!!!

The first half of the book annoyed me. I think it was her though process or something..? But after that, it was so good! I liked how it wasn't all about sex and getting together, but there was a real story behind the book, too. I absolutely loved Reece and how the characters in the other books were there too! Loved seeing Cam and Avery, Jace and Tess, and Jax and Callie again.

I swear I've never closed a book so fast than this one when the author dropped #WhoDunnit. Yeah that contemporary romance was cute, but man, the mystery subplot was lame as hell, I didn't even stay for the HEA, calling it quits at 89%

I used to be a big fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout. I devoured her books. And to this day I feel very nostalgic toward her earlier books; her Covenant series is especially close to my heart. For some reason her latest books didn’t work for me at all, with the exception of The Return which I loved. Though it’s probably result of my warm feelings toward Covenant series, since The Return is a spin-off. Anyway, unfortunately I didn’t like Fall with Me.

I found the main character Roxy immature. Her silly monologues annoyed me a lot. She was obsessed with Reece. Just a couple of quotes for you:
"The driver’s door opened smoothly, and my heart—my damn, traitorous bitch of a heart—skipped a beat as a long denim-clad leg appeared, along with flip-flops with a tan leather thong. Why did I have to have a thing for guys who were ballsy enough to wear flip-flops, because, oh dear, I really did think that was entirely sexy paired with faded jeans. Another leg appeared, and the door blocked the torso for a moment—only a second. The door closed, and I got an eyeful of a worn Metallica shirt that did very little to hide a well-defined, totally yummy-in-my-tummy six-pack. The shirt was practically mating with his stomach, clinging to each ripple. It was doing the same to his biceps, essentially taunting me."

"My gaze roamed over him. I was really just thinking about how the polyester material of his work pants moved along his thighs.
God, he walked with the kind of lethal grace that should be illegal."

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a drool-worthy hero. But his good looks are not enough, I want some essence behind it. And I hadn’t found any here. So this constant description of his fine physic started to get on my nerves pretty quickly.

Also I have to mention “eyes-thing”. I invented this term for constant descriptions of expressive and soulful hero’s eyes. It’s the whole trend in YA and NA nowadays. Almost every author feels the need to mention guy’s eyes (not once, but constantly). It annoys me a lot.

I didn’t bother to highlight every mention of eyes, but I quote a couple:
"Thick lashes lowered, shielding cobalt-blue eyes momentarily. When he looked up again, his eyes practically burned with the intensity uniquely his."

"His eyes, such a deep blue they appeared black in the low ligh"

One of the things I used to love in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books was well done sexual chemistry. I called her “chemistry queen” in one of my previous reviews. Btu I didn’t feel any spark here.

Another issue I had with this book is mystery. While I love romantic suspense, this aspect of the book annoyed me.

As you can tell Fall with Me didn’t work for me at all, but I’m looking forward to read The Power. I really hope it would be a winner for me.

Reece + Roxy = ⚡️

An MC who wears glasses and shirts with nerdy sayings?

Btw, if Fall With Me were made into a movie, I vote Zoey D play the part of Roxy. And Theo James could play the part of Reece. I know, I know, he was the inspiration for Jax in Stay With Me, but let's be honest. Theo could be cast as all the heroes in all of the Wait For You series book-to-screen adaptations, I wouldn't mind.

I love all of JLA's stories but this one---well, this one kind of freaked me out a little. In fact, the following gifs represent my reaction while reading...

What---is going on right now?


Wait. Is that...OMG WHAT?!

Yeah, okay, I'll just be over here in my safe place---hiding.

As with the other books in this series, I enjoyed the characters, fast pace, the relationships forged and of course the romance, but what really stood out was the creep factor. The stalker element kicked this up a notch from romantic suspense to "sleep with the lights on". On more than one occasion, I found myself wanting to cover my eyes and read through my fingers. There may have also been some yelling at the characters too.


Read it.

The only reason this gets two stars is because of Reece. He was perfect. The rest of this book was a total mess.

I was SO excited for this book, I can't even explain how disappointed I am right now. Reece, the hero, was extremely swoony, which is the only point this book gets from me. If you can get past the dumb heroine, and annoying as hell side stories then you could enjoy this.
