Chitra *CJ*
One of my all time favorite series by AR republished with the new added stories.
The first time I read Carter and Cherry/ Saint and Jeanette, I fell in love and that has remained on every reread. Then came "Falling into Place" with Mary/Anthony, Samuel /Nica, and finally Victor and London- all keeping the magic going.
What a wonderful box set to own with the handsome model on the cover.

* Taking the Fall Parts 1 - 4:

Carter has wanted, loved, Layla since the day he met her, but there were two problems. First, her age of sixteen, which was not only ten years younger than him, but making touching her illegal at the time. Second, her dad was his boss, and Carter was hired as Layla's bodyguard. Then, one night six months later changed everything, sending Carter to jail for murder and Layla unable to remember what happened. Layla tried to stay in contact with him though he never answ

The Final Fall was finally written! Even though it was short, it was sweet and steamy and it fit to this series I love perfectly.

I have read all of the books in these series separately. But I was absolutely stoked that they have been bundled into this beautiful collection. I loved this series so much that I read all the stories in this book again. But for the best reading experience, since this is now the full complete series, I read them in the following order :
1. TAKING THE FALL (Carter & Layla)
2. FALLING IN (Saint & Jeanette)
3. THE FINAL FALL (Viktor & London)
4. FALL INTO PLACE ( Anthony & Mary and Samuel & Nika)

Taking the Fall Series has just about anything and everything you could ask for. It's packed with strong alphas, virgins and insane love. I'm so happy that you not only get the series all bundled up into one but we get Viktor's story as an amazing bonus. This series spans over two generations, giving us the love of the characters that we first meet and then getting their children's stories as well. 

Taking the Fall is the first book in the series where we are introduced to Carter an

I have already read all the books in this boxed set. This was the first book I read, that popped my AR cherry and started my addiction. Absolutely love Carter and Layla aka Cherry. Carter meets Cherry when he’s one of her dads bodyguards. He’s automatically smitten with her. He ends up protecting her from her dad and some of his men. He ends up spending 8 years in prison to protect her. Once he gets out, he goes straight to her and gets what’s his. These 2 cannot keep their hands off each other ...more

This is the FULL Complete Series of Taking The Fall!! This is one of the first stories, as they were being published individually by Alexa Riley, and just with the ending with each one I was so hooked. I loved them.
Carter and Layla/Cherry
This is a love story of older man/young girl. There is no underage sex. There is some really hot, intensely hot sex and loving. Obsessive man who doesn’t want another to even look at his woman.
Layla is in love with Carter but he’s her bodyguard and she’s 16 yrs

Awesomesauce, Alexa Riley has put together “Taking the Fall: the Full complete series” into one whole book. It definitely feels like Christmas time!! I remember when the books started coming out several years ago. Alexa Riley was a relatively new author who was an immediate auto buy. I loved her series then and she is now a powerhouse author who continues to write her possessive alpha males and her innocent, sassy heroines with those insta- love themes that makes her still my #1 auto buy each an ...more

I'm glad Alexa Riley decided to finally put all of these in one place, because they were all over the place before.

"You mind telling me what in the fuck flavor Pop-Tart you had for breakfast that made you think it was all right touch my woman?"

Lol, jeez. I love AR's possessive men, but this story wasn't exactly the cherry on top of my ice-cream. It was good, but it went on a bit long for me.

Part 4:

I liked this part more than the others because I was more interested in Saint than in Carter :)
The books in this boxset are short, fast paced and action packed. I liked each story and each character. The chemistry between each couple is undeniable. Although I have read the books in this series before (except Viktor’s story) I read them again. I read this boxset in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. If your looking for an action packed, steamy series than this boxset and series is for you. Each book has an over the top possessive alpha.

I have a confession. I one clicked this boxset so tha

This is the entire series of Taking the Fall and it was so incredible. If you didn't read it as it came out now you can in one boxed set with the additional story!!!!! The ladies of Alexa Riley have blown me away with this one, well they always do but lets talk about this one. I laughed out loud, cried, yelled at my kindle, and then I was sad it was over.

First up is Taking the Fall which is Carter ad Layla's story. Layla can't remember the what happened the night that Carter, her bodyguard land

In this incredible bundle, you get to read five interacting stories.- Carter/Layla, Saint/Jeanette, Anthony/Mary, Samuel/Nika (A, M & S are the kids of C/L & S/J) and Victor/Angel (parents of N.) I am glad I purchased this "book" because these novellas are meant to be enjoyed as one full-length novel. The story begins with Carter, who has had a rough life, forced onto the streets after his parents are murdered, who is hell-bent on revenge against the crime boss who did it.

This was amazing. This series was exciting and fulfilling. I loved every part and I enjoyed it very much. Alexa and Riley did it all so so good. It did not get old.

“She’s an angel. She shines, and when I watch her, it feels like she bathes me in light.”

Carter and Layla owned a part of my heart after this. They were perfect together.
Jeanette and Saint were different and special. They were on the easier side.
Samuel and Nika gave each other what they needed.

I absolutely loved having all these books in one place!

The book starts with Carter and Layla (Cherry) and then follows other characters that are all prefaced in the books before it. Each one is alphatastic and smutty goodness.

Carter has done everything to protect his Cherry, even though she is unaware. Cherry thinks she’s safe and undetected, but Carter has had eyes on her for a long time. What happens when Carter is finally able to go to her? The story is short and sexy with possessive alpha

I love this series.

Taking the Fall Volumes 1-4 was my first AR read and I have been hooked since.

Having this complete series in one amazing box set is great and I love being able to read straight through the series.

With this series you will meet 5 alpha possive males and the women they love. They each have a unique story, but all have an instalove relationship. Cherry and Carter are still my favorite couple, I feel like they had to fight the hardest to be together and stay together. Jeanette a

Taking the Fall series was a great read. Each story short, but filled with promise, passion and some moments of panic. This read takes you deep and you wouldn't want it any other way. Carter is an amazing alpha that is pure man! Saint is sexy as all h3ll and I could not love him any more. This story goes two generations deep and is just blissful and addicting!

So this was amazing. I have read the novellas within this book before when they first came out, so it was no surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed them. It had actually been a long time since I had read the original series of books. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed them the same if not more than i did originally. I would definitely recommend this to someone that is wanting to try Alexa Riley for the first time, or someone that does not own the books already. This is one of those ti ...more

What an awesome series with some big strong, over the top yummy hotties and the women that can handle them.

Whoa, in Taking the Fall Part one, the part where he marks his territory outside the club got me all aflutter. Whew! Part two made me cry. Oh and laugh for sure! 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. These stories were very enjoyable, dirty, fun reads with good story and suspen

I absolutely love Carter and Layla!!! This series was the 2nd series I read from this author and I have read it three times. I never read a book more than once. I just can’t!!!! But for some reason Alexa Riley allows me to read their stories over and over again. And I love it as though it was the first time I read it all over again!!

I loved these books, each on their own. I love it even more having them all together to just go from one story to the next, especially with a little extra added. These are tough alphas you fall completely head over heels for, especially when they show how much they love their women. Their protectiveness and most definitely their sexiness. These books are smokin hot! Completely love!!!

Such an incredible series!

It was hot! It was action packed, and it alpha hottties that made you swoon.

Each story takes you on an adventure into each and every life, from past, to present, to future.

It’s another AR hit for me! Another perfect read when you need a little spice and cheesy romance. Love it!
