Yes!! Because AR's book is about Viktor from Taking the Fall: The Complete Series

It's Live


The Final Fall by Alexa Riley-

I think all Alexa Riley fans have been waiting not so patiently for Viktor's story. Who doesn't love a hot OTT Russian? Short and hot, completely over the top and safe, just like we all expect from Alexa Riley!

- no cheating
-no ow/om drama whatsoever
- no pushing away
-minimal drama
- just ok epilogue

A special mention for The Final Fall by Alexa Riley featuring Viktor from the Taking the Fall series (which is my absolute favorite series by this duo). :D

eyerollingly bad. Very short, no depth, no story. Appeasement to fans of the series which I haven't read.

Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up.
I sent out recs, too. Yikes! Sorry, if I irritated anyone.

The Final Fall by Alexa Riley
5+++ Stars

The story was short but it was so good! I loved it!

The story is about Viktor and London.

He's a hitman. One of the best. Over the last year, he watched her every day but didn't make a move. She's the preacher's daughter. He thought he can't have her and that he's not good enough of her.

She got tired of waiting and planned to hide. He asked for Saint's help to locate her thinking an enemy took her and will use her against him.

It was fun to read their stor

The Final Fall by Alexa Riley

**Disclaimer: If you've read Taking the Fall as well as the bonus story attached to it, and you really should, then you'll recognize Viktor...this is his story. Saint, from said title also makes an appearance here.

London is waiting, though not so patiently, for the man that became a part of her life a year ago. They noticed one another from a distance  and he's been watching her since, and yet, now, she hasn't seen him in three days. This preacher's daughter craves t

A perfect package for a quick read. It's insta, sweet and hot with no dramas. Add over the top crazy obsessive alpha hero. Sweet angel like heroine. A perfect match brought by Alexa Riley.

I Voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

I had the privilege of reading The Final Fall by Alexa Riley

Viktor has been secretly lusting after the preacher's daughter, London for a while now. Until he has decided that its enough and its time to make his move.

I Think we have all waited for this story for a while and Alexa Riley did not disappoint at all. An OTT Hot Sexy Russian who has no problems claiming his women!

What a collection! I've read a few of these in here.

Ok so Alexa Riley's The Final Fall short story was great. I mean a girl who's into her sexy stalker? Awesome! He ends up being all possessive and alpha, no surprise there.

Buy me, sir is such a great story. It was all dark and twisted where no one is the "good guy" and not your typical love story.

His Muse is HOT. He's the master, she is his pet, kinky, twisted and delicious.

If any of the others are half as good as these, what a crazy deal. So go

The Final Fall by Alexa Riley
This is my Viktor’s story, the quiet but endearing hitman. Yeah, I know that doesn’t go together....but that’s exactly what he is. These two are relationship goals and I am definitely calling dibs. I mean he built her a house and moved her grandparents house to the land too...because she loves her grandparents house....panties are melting everywhere, including mine. So I call dibs now.
London knows Viktor’s been watching her, she refers to him as her “mystery man”.

Viktor has been secretly stalking the preacher's daughter, London, for one year until he finally couldn't take it anymore when he missed her latest whereabouts. London finally met her Mystery Man!

Finally, Viktor has his own well-deserved loved story! He is the intensely quiet but hitman in the Taking The Fall Series.This novella was sweet and exciting! I loved Viktor and his fierce protectiveness. I'm so happy he got his happily ever after!

What a great collaboration of Authors here!! A little something for everyone to enjoy!

Notice by K.Webster
Let’s start out by refreshing our memory on the definition of Stalker:
1. a person who pursues game, prey, or a person stealthily.
Take the definition of Stalker and multiply that my 100…now that we have that clear, you will understand this book completely.

This collection definitely represents some of the Best of 2017! I already have most of these books and love them all!

Alexa Riley - Final Fall: Viktor's story at last!! Viktor has had the hots for London, the preacher's daughter, and he's finally making his move to claim her. An OTT sexy hot Russian and an innocent lovely woman made for a fantastic, explosive romance!

A. Zavarelli - Beast: Beast was everything I thought it would be - dark and forbidding, sexy and unseemly, inappropriate, and yet

This review is for The Final Fall by Alexa Riley. 

I don't know about the rest of you but I've been waiting for Viktor to get is own story so I absolutely gobbled this baby up. In true AR fashion, Viktor is a bit alpha but he's a big softy when it comes to London. That girl has his heart wrapped around his massive fingers. 

I liked that London wasn't afraid to play around a bit with Viktor and she called him out on things. Plus, she embraced his stalkerish tendencies. She is a virgin, which is wha

London is the daughter of a Preacher and she is a good girl who always does the right thing. Her Mother left when she was just a little girl and after that she spent most of her time with her paternal Grandparents. Her Grandparents both died when she was sixteen years old within a few days of one another. Her Father's church grew and eventually he let London handle the church's accounting. He was very strict and behind closed doors he was cold

Dark. Gritty. Twisted. Wrong on so many different levels. I'm not sure how to feel right now. I just got off the heart racing roller coaster ride that is Beast and I'm still quite dizzy. All I know for sure is that I could not stop reading. Lies, betrayal, love, hate, revenge. My emotions were all over the place. One minute I felt for Javi, the next I hated him. This book made me question my own sanity. I loved the writing style and I loved that this book sucked me in and wouldn't let go! S

I had the pleasure of reading one story in this amazing bundle. Alexa Riley's!! :-D

Viktor is a hitman, and a hit with one particular lady who's had enough of waiting for her private stalker to and fetch her for his own. I loved this couple! They are adorably romantic and smutty.

The girl, London, is a preacher's daughter, innocent yet bold in her absolute acceptance of a certain mystery man who's been watching her without any words or touch. When she stakes her claim, it's brilliant.

This is a collection of books by a bunch of great authors. My favorite is Notice by K. Webster. I cannot get enough of Gray!!

I am only reviewing The Final Fall by Alexa Riley. I was a short and sweet ending to the Taking The Fall series, one of my favorite series of any author ever. Loved Viktor and London.
Janice Somers
What I liked about this story is that we finally get Viktors story. Viktor is a hitman that falls in love with a preachers daughter. The story is a quick read and as always a safe read, with lots of dirty sex and 2 epilogues.
What I didn't like, nothing, I loved it! I loved this story and now it's over, this is the last story from the "Taking the Fall series." But on a lighter note, if you own the beginning stories/books, you can reread them when ever you want and need another Alexa Riley fix.

3 stars for "The Final Fall", in my opinion the only readable story in this book.

0 stars for all the other crap.
