From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.

For the past nine years, I’ve kept my heart as far away from my dick as possible.

Those two can’t be anywhere near each other. They don’t play nice, and one of them undoubtedly winds up getting hurt.

Not my dick. My dick is good.

The women I take home know exactly what they’re getting from

5 REED stars!!!

 photo 1e1c6e4c-1648-42a7-b203-ee3cce4aa9d8_zpsjgzwi4pp.jpg

It seems that each J. Daniels book I read is better than the last. This is by far my favorite of hers. If you’ve read her Alabama Summer series, you know Reed. Reed is the best friend of Tessa. He’s also the guy who always has a different girl with him (always). He’s a complete and utter manwhore. But for a good reason. Once upon a time, Reed got his heart broken. And ever since, he doesn’t put himself out there. He was burned once by letting his heart lead the way, it won’t happ

I wish more authors realized the power of a good epilogue. A good epilogue can change or intensify a readers feelings about a story and its characters. This book's ending bumped my rating up from a solid 3 stars to 4 stars. That's how happy I was when I finished this story. As you can see, I really liked the ending.

I don't know how she does it, but she manages to look this perfect blend of innocent and I'm-about-to-fuck-your-world-up.


You know what I love when finding a new author? When that author never sticks to a formula and shows growth with every book she writes. I also love that she has her signature voice in her characters, but every book is refreshingly different, entertaining, and oh so sexy. To say that I was anxiously anticipating Reed's book would be a major understatement. What I was

4 Reed Stars!

There are three things I've come to expect when reading a book by J. Daniels: a sweet heroine, a hot hero, and a story peppered with humor and a little bit of angst. When I Fall delivered on all of those and then some.

Reed likes to keep his life and relationship simple. By simple meaning, no commitment beyond a night of pleasure. He has been burned badly before and he doesn't intend to get hurt again. Beth is lost soul. She had no one. Her past was bleak and her future even bleaker

Reed & Beth.

4 Kissable Stars

When I Fall is a standalone and is book 3 of the Alabama Summer series.

Reed is an impossible flirt. Have you watched that show, Heart of Dixie? You know Wade, the bartender? Reed reminds me of him. He’s good-looking, cocky and loves attention from women.

Years ago, Reed’s ex cheated on him. He hasn’t kissed a girl since. He’s had plenty of sex since then, just no kissing.

Until he meets Beth

Beth is the new girl in town. She has issues and is loo

I absolutely can't get enough of J. Daniels' writing!! This is without a doubt my favorite of the Alabama Summer series!

Fans of Alabama Summer all know Reed, the Ruxton Manwhore. Reed only does one night with a girl and never speaks to her again. That's all he needs. In All I Want, we were given a little insight to what made Reed the way he is. 9 years ago he gave his heart away only to have it burned. He won't let that happen again.

Beth is new in town. After her mother suddenly dies from drug

4.5 I fell for Reed Stars!

I was going to get fancy and fill this with images and quotes, but honestly sometimes a good book with good writing by a great author just doesn't need it!

So quickly, this is book 3 and it is no less than stellar than the first 2. Reed Tennyson was always the cool cat. The mysterious, sexy king of the one-nighters, but he is amazingly loyal and fun all around. HE just doesn't believe in love and relationships. Isn't it always the good/hot ones that were burned that turn

4.75 When The Real Deal Smacks You in Face Stars
* * * * 3/4

Nobody likes emotional pain...and when a guy puts himself out there only to be destroyed by a heartless bitch...the usual results are not pretty.
Women, we seem to deal with this crap of sledgehammers to heart and suck it up...We eat a ton of ice cream, whine to our friends until an intervention and then get on the love merry go around again. A little wiser but hopefully not too bitter and willing to be open for the next possible chance

3.5 Brave Girl Stars!

Hmm, not bad but not great. 5 stars for the dirty talkin' and the HAWT sex scenes. 3 stars for everything else. We'll just call it a day at 3.5 total.

I don't have it in me to do a full-length review. I've been so disappointed with some of the recent new releases that I think I'm totally going to change how I select my next reads...and just because it's a shiny, new release, is definitely not going to be a factor anymore.

I don't think anyone is more shocked than me that I'm giving this book 5 stars after the last book in this series.

It was so good though!



Reed is a man whore. Usually that makes me run far away


After my informant told me it was safe though, I dived right in.

I really loved Beth. She was funny and strong.

Reed was dirty. My favorite kind of dirty though.

They were by far my fav couple this author has written.

I loved little Nolan and his little tool belt.

I am in love with J Daniels' Alabama Series. If you have not read this series yet you are seriously missing out. When I Fall is Reed and Beth's story an the third book in this series. I've been looking forward to reading this book ever since Reed hit on Mia in Where I Belong.



Reed is one of Tessa's best friends and the local manwhore of Ruxton. And of course I love a good manwhore. Reed's heart has been closed off for the last nine years after he found his girlfriend in bed

This book. This. Book. I'm so in love with it, and with Reed, that I'm kind of at a loss for words. Except I'm not. Because When I Fall was spectacular, heartfelt, sweet, dirty, kinky and amazing, and the book I wanted from the minute Reed appeared in Where I Belong.

Reed Tennyson is a man-whore. To protect his stupid heart from getting him hurt, he follows his cock. And that works for him. Until her.

She's new in town, and has a heart-stopping smile that makes him want to agree to anything. And

When I Fall was one of those stories that will not only make you feel every emotion, but connects you with each and every one of the characters on some level.

All it took was one kiss for the main characters' beautiful journey to begin and that was all it took for me to FALL for Beth & Reed.
