Be sure to have a fan nearby because this book is sizzling! Besides the steamy bits, there's a deep, beautiful story here--you won't be disappointed.

Hailee and Finn bring you laughter and tears. Their relationship blooms before your eyes. From the first page, ahem, actually the first line, I was hooked. You're rooting for this couple from the start.

You easily connect with Hailee whether you've been in her shoes or not, and Finn has a background story that makes you realize that not everything is

What a wonderful book. The author has given us a wonderful storyline that will keep you laughing, smiling and hoping for a happy ever after. The characters in the book are well developed and very down to earth. They have real life problems, lifestyles and dreams with situations readers can relate to. As you follow along, it becomes a joy to hang out with all the characters (the main, supporting and even the flamboyant ones) as they tell their story.

Hailee has had a good life being raised by her

I started reading this thinking to myself that I'd just read a couple of chapters before bed......12.30am I was still reading and forced myself to put it down as my eyes were closing!!

Thoroughly enjoyed this, so much so that I think I will re-read it again straight away just to see if I missed anything. The story reeled me in right at the start and held and captivated me the whole way through. Hailee is just adorable, a tad fiesty and says what she thinks......unless its about love! OMG Finn...

How We Fall is a sensual read that excites every part of your body, it will have you drooling and curling your toes! Omg I've been hungry and horny throughout this whole book, TMI I know. It was frustrating, learning all these amazing dishes this Chef can make and then have his and Hailee's sexual chemistry steam off the pages. Woo. It was tantalizingly epic. I feel like I watched a cooking show that turned pornographic. I love it.

When two people who have felt the same hurts and pain that life

Wow, another 5-star read by Alyne Hart!



This time it's Dean's brother Finn's time to fall in love. And the woman he falls for? Sweet but damaged Hailee Ferris. Hailee comes crashing into Finn's life when she's shoved a shopping list by one of the chefs at her new job and told to go to Whole Foods and buy everything quickly and only buy the best because "the king needed them." Poor Hailee's so out of her depth, something made quite clear as she's roaming the aisles at Whole Foods trying to figur

Hailee and Finn are about to take you on such a real and breathtaking scenic route to a love that one has to experience, because words don't do justice....this one you have to feel.

Alyne has such a way with humor and with moments that your jaw drops and the rapid heartbeats take over.

I love the first interaction between Hailee and Finn. She is just a one of a kind character who you would want to be besties with but be prepared to wear your favorite running shoes because you'll have to chase her

In “How We Fall” Alyne Hart cooks up a hero that’ll leaves you craving a second helping.

Bullied as an overweight child, Chef Finn King has an amazing sense of self. He knows what he wants and goes after it with skilled hands and a heart of gold. Hailee’s disastrous love life has nothing to do with her open-mouth-insert-foot tendencies. It takes more than Finn’s persistence, culinary expertise, and rock hard abs featured on his cooking channel to put herself on the line.

We meet Hailee as she is trying to make heads or tails of a shopping list that her boss needs at the high end restaurant she was just hired at. She comes across as a bit spunky and able to take care of herself. Our first intro to Finn is of him having sexual fantasies of Hailee, not sure how to take a man when his first thought is how the female lead might look with her lips wrapped around his member. Throughout the book the author would have these moments that come up with either a character su ...more

Well if one woman in a book could make me want to lose my religion, it was Hailee. Not all the time, just at one particular time in the book I could have strangled her. The storyline was wonderfully written and quite entertaining. Not only the lead characters, but the wonderful supporting characters. These were people that you would either know someone like them or would want to know. They were wonderfully entertaining and supportive of the leads.

Ahhhh Fiiiin!!! Swoon! After reading Dean's story, where Finn 'dropped in', I was sooo looking forward to Finn's story...and I was not disappointed. Lots of steam, but so glad that Finn wasn't a sexy, jerk, manwh*re!
On her first day as a hostess at a fine dining restaurant, Hailee's first task is to go the market with a list of items that she's never heard of before. Luckily, she runs into a hottie who helps her gather everything. She explains that it's her first day, she has no experience work

Audiobook

A culinary experience between the head chef and the hostess. Food is a language of love and it’s one of the main elements in this book that brings these two characters together.

Performance: Alan Taylor is not a voice I’m familiar with in the audio world. He is the sole performer in this book. I actually prefer a dual or duet performance. In this case having two separate narrators would improve the the quality of this book. I couldn’t get over my disappointment at listening to Alan perf

Hailee is going to fake it until she makes it at her new job. Being a hostess at a fancy restaurant is just a means to an end. Make enough money to leave this small town behind along with all the baggage that goes with it. What she didn't count on was the hotness of her new boss Finn King. Before she knew he was her boss, she though he was just a gorgeous, albeit out of her league, guy that helped her at the farmers market. Finn has only had one serious girlfriend his whole life despite how he m ...more

Alyne Hart is fast becoming an author that I will one click! In book two of this series, we get an intimate look at the inner workings of a chef. Finn is first and foremost a chef, not looking for love, but when he runs into his new hire, Hailee, all bets are off. There is a no fraternization policy, but the chemistry between these two is sizzling and keeping their hands to themselves is difficult. Hailee has been hurt badly and is not interested in anything long term, but will she be able to ho ...more

This was a fun, sexy romance with all the right ingredients. It has a hot, sexy chef, a sassy employee that gets past all his defenses, witty banter, and lots of heat, in and out of the kitchen! Finn and Hailee have a funny and awkward meet cute. But once they connect over the intricacies of food, the sparks really fly. They have more than fod in common, both having a rough beginning and then raised by their grandmothers. They really connect on so many levels. I like how they worked through many ...more

Devoured Every Last Morsel

If you haven't read an Alyne Hart book (or even if you have) then you definitely are in for a treat! I have never ever read one of her books before but felt like this story was a good place to get my feet wet, man was I right. This book had everything for me that was a recipe for a great romance. It has those hot and heavy moments, the raw emotion, and the hesitation because both protagonists have been burned by love before. It certainly was baked to perfection and I ca

WOW! A phenomenal read that will tug on your heart strings from the first page. A well written, well-developed page turner that is funny, compelling, engaging, and enjoyable. The characters are amazing especially Finn who has the patience of a saint and an all-around great guy. The chemistry between Finn and Hailee is sweltering and their sex scenes are descriptive and off the charts. This series is one to miss, and I look forward to the next book. I must commend Alyne Hart for writing such an a ...more

A phenomenal read that will leave your heart smiling. Finn and Hailee are two beautiful souls that deserve their own happiness.

Favorite quote: Finn to Hailee ~ "I'll chase you forever, I'll promise you everything I have to give, but you need to let me in and give me the chance to prove you wrong. You deserve to be happy, and so do I. This isn't how you get hurt, Hailee. Not with me. This is how we fall, so hard and so dangerously beautiful that we lose ourselves and leave our fears b

I love that the book tells the story from each other's perspective; how it goes back and forth. And having the story take place in a restaurant (& his kitchen) makes the story so much better between spunky, feisty Hailee and gorgeous, hunk Finn. The way they bond over the food and how it tastes, smells, etc. They are totally made for each other. And I love how everything was drawn out; it made it so much better!

Seriously! Where can I get one? I need to find one just like Finn King!

Ok, back to the book. I went into this book with a really weird question... What in the world is a foodie novel? I had no idea going in but after reading this, I feel the need to find more in this category. Hot men making hot food? Sign me up!!! This is a great addition to the series.

An excellent continuation of this series The Men of Evansdale County! Can also be read standalone. I really liked Finn King. He's Dean's brother. He has such a positive outlook on life.

In the first book Dean and Emma had their first date in the fancy restaurant where Finn is the Chef and Hailee is a hostess. This is a really fun "Foodie Romance". Finn and Hailee have sizzling chemistry together. They are relatable and very likable characters. I love how they first met, very funny.

The interesting, engaging characters, have great, intense chemistry and interaction. I loved them and enjoyed reading about them. This is an Entertaining, Romantic, Must Read Book that I loved from the first chapter.

Alyne hooked me from page on in this sexy read! Who doesn't love a man who can cook? Add in long hair and tattoos and you've hit the trifecta. Finn is a heart pounding, drool worthy book boyfriend. My only problem was Alyne described the food so well I was constantly getting hungry every time I read it.

If you like romance, sizzling chemistry, and hot as **** scenes, you need to read this book!
