The Fall

Salvation doesn’t exist.
It’s a lie people tell themselves in the dark, alone so their conscience might be eased. To give them hope that, in the end, we can all be forgiven.
Except we can’t.
And no amount of praying will change that.
For me there will be no redemption, and I will leave this world with the same black heart I entered it with.
The comfort in knowing who I am and w

This will be the first time reading anything by this author so I'm keen to see what kind of journey she takes me on with this book.

THE FALL: We meet Michael in the 'Prologue' orphaned and dropped off at a hospital only a few hours old, due to his mother dying during childbirth, two nuns naming him and proclaiming him abandoned and left in the church's v
4.5 Stars!!!
All I can say is I hope there is going to be another book because that fucking epilogue blew my damn mind!!!!!!!!

T. Gephart I hope you can hear me growling at you and giving you the evil eye! I want MORE dammit!! Ha!

Sorry people no review because if I write one it will be hidden under a big fat spoiler!!!


Loved it until I got to the epilogue! Then I wanted to hunt the author down!

4 ”I need MORE Michael” stars.

"There is no heaven. And there is no hell. There is only .”

3 days has passed since I finished , and NO, I'm still not over the ending. I want more. I need MORE!!!!!!!

This was my first experience with T. Gephart and it won’t be the last. The journey wasn't perfect, it had some bumps along the road but if there was something, more likely someone, that standout no matter what, that was MICHAEL. I'm completely and utterly in LOVE with h

Seriously what the fuck? Is that the end? Was this supposed to be a romance? Is this a stand alone? Will there be a follow up? Cause WHAT THE FUCK? I know some people don't care about cliffy's and "real" endings and blah blah blah. I'm not one of those people. When I start a book I like to know there's an ending, a satisfying one at that. But this? No. Just no. I can't believe I wasted 3 days and precious reading time for it to end this way. No no no. Don't waste your time folks. ...more

This book was not like any other book I've read by T Gephart. It's not unusual for her books to have me laughing out loud, something that this book didn't do. That doesn't make it a bad book though, its a great book, but don't expect it to be anything like the Lexi/Black Addiction/Power Station books. This story is dark, intriguing and page turning and the twists will leave you shocked and with a definite book hangover. The ending jolts you to the point you sit open mouthed, and can't believe wh ...more

5 dark, bone chilling stars!!!!

First of all I have read every single book Tina has released and loved every single one them, The Fall is no exception, yes it is completely different to anything she has ever written we don't get the sweet dream romance what we do get is bone racking,thrilling, dark and twisty and I loved every single minute!!!

I won't be going into details of the plot as you need to read it yourself but what I will say is Michael is a killer he's almost robotic he never gives the

The Fall is twisty, unpredictable and dark in both storyline and characters so I have given it 5 dangerous and deceitful stars. I should start off by saying The Fall isn't like other T.Gephart novels. This story isn’t sunshine and roses, so don’t expect to be given a hero on a white horse, a damsel in distress and an ending tied up in a big red bow. Michael is a bad guy. Not the bad boy, who once he meets the right woman will settle down and make a home behind a picket-fence. He has no attachmen ...more

Michael is an assassin with no conscious, dark troubled past and instead of finding the truth he retains hatred. Sophia is his target and when he meets her he is cold, hard and indifferent. He has a job to do and will see it to the end.

"Sofia". It was the first time I'd used her name as I moved closer to her. "Don't think for a second just because I have given the illusion of choice that you will actually have one."

Dark, gritty, unpredictable, raw—these are just a few words I would use to describe Gephart’s The Fall. If you’re looking for an adrenaline pumping read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, snap this bad boy up. You WON’T regret it.

T.Gephart at her best! Dark, edgy, unique... a must read for 2016
Anne Mercier
I'm still trying to process this book. So much happens--so many twists and turns.

The hero? Complex, dark, dangerous, immoral as they come.
The heroine? Strong, bending, fearless.

The Fall is raw and gritty. Mind-f*ckery at it's finest.

When you think you know what's next, you'll be wrong. Expect the unexpected and brace yourself for a bumpy ride!

Seriously this book blew my mind. What a truly gripping, dark, suspense filled masterpiece, delivered with so much punch it left me holding my breath, while wondering what the heck just happened.

T Gephart is well known for the fantastic romance she writes, but when I found out she was writing something on the opposite end of the scale, I couldn’t wait. OMG it was sooo worth it. From the first pages – and I mean literally the first pages I was hooked. This book wasn’t going to let me go - the wor

Wow! Just wow!

I have read everything by T Gephart to date, but The Fall was a departure from what I have come to expect from her.

A big departure.

The Fall is dark, gritty, raw. From the first page to the last it was a gut wrenching rollercoaster of a ride

Sofia and Michael's story was like reading a Jason Bourne story. The adrenaline was pumping, I was kept on the edge of my seat (well, the edge of my couch!) and with each and every twist and turn I was left saying

** Review written by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **

Are you ready for The Fall?

He is darkness.
A man with no soul.
A man surrounded by darkness, not a hint of colour in his life.
Loved by nobody.
A loner.
A man with blood on his hands.
A man who simply doesn't fear death.
A man that will take your last breath from you without blinking an eye.
A man so cold and calculated, void of any emotion he will take a life.
It's how he lives.

I received an ARC for an honest review.

This is my first book by T Gephart. So far I didn't read any of her funny and witty romances but heard a lot positive about them. I met Tina personally and thought it will be definitely worth it to give this rather darker story a try. I don't regret it at all.

When I started the book I thought it is purely a crime story. It is intense; the writing style lets you turn the pages and includes still some wit. After a few chapters I thought more and more that a

This is a standalone book by an author I've never read before.

This story is about Michael. He's a hired killer. He has alliance to no one. Cold. Angry. Indifferent. His life is his own. He accounts to no one.

He receives a call from a local big criminal Jimmy Amaro to do a job for him. Used to being hired to kill or harm he's taken aback when Jimmy asks him to keep his daughter safe. It's a babysitting job and he is not a people person. Jimmy ups the fee and Michael agrees. Meeting Sophia, Michae

The Fall by T. Gephart was a mind wringer for me. That being said, I thought the book was great and the ending was fab. Michael is a machine. He does specialized "jobs" that no-one else wants to do. You need someone "taken care of" you call Michael. It doesn't matter what the job entails, Michael will do it. It helps that Michael is loyal to a fault and trustworthy and will complete the job, as he cannot be paid off. Michael is tasked to secure the daughter of a crime boss and protect her for a ...more

Wow! Just wow! This book pulled me in, chewed me up and spit me out and I’m still not sure what happened. The Fall is so deep and dark you will find yourself reading with wide eyes while you chew your fingernails right off. Okay, so maybe that was just me, but I seriously. I could not put the book down.

When Michael was born, he mother died during childbirth. Orphaned and abandoned, he went into the system and was raised into a natural born killer. He never knew love. Heck, I don’t think

This is a deliciously dark and dangerous story that I couldn’t get enough of and loved reading! Michael isn’t a hero and doesn’t pretend to be anything more than the a**hole that he’s proud to be. He’s got a hard earned and well-deserved reputation for being the one even the worst of the worst call on whenever they need a difficult situation taken care of. He was abandoned by everyone that was supposed to care for him from birth and it’s shaped him into someone that people say has no soul. It’s ...more

OMG!! This book!!! Such a huge switch from her other books but don't get me wrong, she NAILED it with this one!!

Michael came into this world in a storm and has kept it brewing ever since. His life has never been easy and Michael uses that to propel him into the life he leads. He makes his money the only way he knows how. Taking care of other people's dirty work. It doesn't bother him. He has no emotions or soul. It gets it done with easy and moves on.

Five OMG Stars! First let me start by saying this is a dark romance and if you are looking for something sweet or typical Ms. Gephart then this isn't it. If you love the dark side then definitely you must get this book! Michael is not a good person, he is a loner who kills with no remorse. Sofia is a cop who is trying to bring down organized crime in Chicago, even if that includes her father. When Michael and Sofia meet they are polar opposites but, he can keep her safe.

I really really loved this book. The characters are great. Michael is a messed up guy but the more I got to know him, the more I loved him. Sofia is a strong, independent woman who takes no shit. She's gonna step up to any situation and handle it, and I loved that about her. Nothing beats a strong female character.

The only thing I didn't like about this book was the ending. Now I'm not gonna bitch and moan about it but T Gephart... you wrote the wrong ending. Or you owe me another bo

I have no idea how this book is getting so many 4 and 5 star ratings. The pacing and storyline was so slow, my mind would wander while I was reading. Michael was not a likable character in the slightest, and there was zero chemistry between him and Sofia. Also, that ending? Um, no. Not sure how anyone could have actually enjoyed that.

This book took me longer to read than most - again, because of the slow story - and I'm sorry I wasted that many days reading this.
Violet_Musonda Winchester
I knew this would definitely be my kind of book long before I even got to the chapter one.

There's just something about Michael.

But anyway... great characters, great story, great world building, great background stories, overall a great read that kept my interest throughout. :)

Happy Reading! :)

T Gephart is a USA Today and International bestselling author from Melbourne, Australia.

With an approach to life that is somewhat unconventional, she prefers to fly by the seat of her pants rather than adhere to some rigid roadmap.

Her lack of "plan" has resulted in a rather interesting and eclectic resume, which reads more like the fiction she writes than an actual employment history.
