Daring to Fall is my first read from T.J Kline and I can honestly say that it will not be my last. Her writing was captivating and romantic, and these characters are not ones I'll be forgetting about any time soon. Their story wasn't overly involved in just their relationship but that's what I found so amazing. Ben and Emma had a lot more going on then just what was between them, which kept this book engaging so it didn't bother me at all that their relationship didn't seem to be the main focus.

The price of a dream can be pretty high at times, but would a life be too much to pay for a dream that has a chance to come true soon? Emma has a chance to make all her dreams come true but there was someone out there that did not share her dream. That someone was wreaking havoc and threating the very existence of her dream. The suspense and mystery surrounding the danger of working to keep the sanctuary up and running keeps the story moving forward and the depth of involvement between Ben and E ...more

A complicated, slow building romance, one animal sanctuary filled with wildlife, and something suspicious lurking around the sanctuary feeding the town with falls information and setting Emma's business to fall. The author invites the readers to the front and center first-row seats to be mesmerised by the movie like scenes flowing of the pages and alluring the mind.
The unique setting of the wildlife sanctuary was a great learning experience. The details of the care and treatment of the differen

This is the second book in the series. I like this series, but I didn't like this one as much as the first book. It doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy it. I liked Ben and Emma. Ben is a hunky fireman. I felt for Emma. She's trying to prove herself, but it feels like that she has no one in her corner. Ben is thrown off his game when it comes to Emma. The more he gets know Emma he sees the true her not the preconceived notion of the small town. There is someone causing trouble for Emma can they figu ...more

Daring to Fall is the first book that I have read from T.J. Kline, but it won't be my last. I was immediately drawn in with this gorgeous cover and will admit that I really didn't pay much attention to the blurb. It just looked so good that it made me want to read it, and I am really glad I did. I was engaged right away and enjoyed reading this new to me author.

This is the second book I have read by T.J. Kline and she didn’t disappoint me. Daring to Fall was an amazing romance about a hero with a knight in shining armor, rescue the damsel in distress personality and the damsel doesn’t want rescued!

This was a very entertaining read. It has a great slow build romance between Emma and Ben with a bit of mystery and suspense thrown in. The setting of the animal sanctuary was very intriguing as well. Emma and Ben were both great characters. Emma took a while to grow on me but I loved Ben right away. This is a great small town romance and definitely a book I would recommend.

When it comes to heartache, T. J. Kline is synonymous with delivering the goods. Ms. Kline writes literature that stimulates the mind and breaks the heart, both qualities will have a reader sit up and take notice. Daring to Fall adds mystery to an already full emotional plate. Ben and Emma are a compelling combination but with so much going on it's sometimes hard to keep the story line straight.

This was a really good book. I didn't want to put it down and it held my interest through the whole book. I thought I had the ending figured out and I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. It was an overall good book. I was glad I had the opportunity to read it and will be glad to read any future books by Mrs. Kline. I was given a review copy from The Publisher/Author without any compensation for a positive review.

Ben is a good match for Emma. As a firefighter he’s going to understand about her having a dangerous job but that with proper training and care things will be as safe as they can be. He’s also got a big heart which goes well with her own. Up to this point his romantic life has always been about being the big, strong hero so of course he falls really hard for someone who can take care of herself! Now he just needs to learn that he can be supportive without sweeping in on his white horse to rescue ...more

What happens when you put together a hot but sensitive fireman, a stubborn independent woman and a sanctuary for wild animals? A really good love story with lots of heat and animal attraction ;)! I instantly fell in love with Ben and his loving ways. He has never been in a casual relationship, but has had bad with the women in his life. Emma is the opposite of what he thinks he is looking for, but when it comes to matters of the heart, those reasons don't matter. Emma's also had bad luck in the ...more

This is my first book by author T.J. Kline and I have to say, I really enjoyed this story. Both Ben and Emma are two people who care about animals and the town of Hidden Falls and want to see the animal sanctuary succeed. There is an attraction that surfaces when Emma and Ben meet but given how they’re a little bit at odds over his duty to the town and her job as owner of the sanctuary, it isn’t hard to see why they also butt heads, which gives the story an

What an absolute blast to read! Daring to Fall gives readers a peek into the world of an animal sanctuary, spinning the story in such a way you feel as if you are standing beside the pens listening to the cats chuff. I have always had a soft spot for men in uniform and fell immediately in love with firefighter Ben - that he was truly a great guy was an added bonus. Emma took a bit longer to warm up to, as I felt as if her character took a bit longer to develop. Filled with plenty of twists and t ...more

T J Kline is a new author for me.After reading this book, which is the second in the series, not only am I looking forward to reading the second and third book in this series or trilogy, but I am also looking forward to reading other books by Kline. She writes with such grit, eloquence, and talent. She creates characters that have depth and are multi-layered. This book was a romance but I also enjoyed that the romance was built and felt organic, not forced. It was also nice to read a romance whe ...more
