Falling Hard

A story told by cousins. Both wanted nothing more than to leave the MC in their past—until both fell hard and fast for men who breathed everything they were scared of.


I didn’t know what love was, but I knew what I felt, and it was something I had never experienced before. My stomach twisted with nerves, scaring me but exciting me

The Two Sides of This Book

What a cliffhanger!! Emmie and Libby were cousins whose fathers were in high power in the MC life and these men would do anything for their daughters. Both girls were special and fought their own nightmares living and dealing with mental illness. Even though neither wanted to be a part of club life they both loved their father and uncle and was their whole world.

Since Emmie and Libby could be in trouble because of whom their fathers were the girls each had their guardia

Falling hard is book one in the monsters of mayhem series. This book is the first book of Simone Elise and H. Zebell’s that I have read. I found the writing style easy to follow, the characters loveable and the storyline gripping. I devoured this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I really enjoyed this story.
In this story we meet two young women and we get to see their struggles, dangerous situations and them falling in love.
Emmie is schizoaffective (schizophrenia and bi polar)
Tee loves Kyle Jacobson
First of all I have to say that this series started off with a bang! I absolutely loved how Simone and H wove this story that had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. I have to warn you this is a love story like no other. I have not read anything like this before and I need more. I can't wait for the next book because that sneak peak had me wanting more.

In Falling Hard we get to meet cousins Emmie and Libby. I just absolutely love these two because they are more like sis

The prequel left me with questions and an interest in reading more.

It took a while to realize the prequel and story are only slightly connected. Some of the same characters are in both. While the story with the two cousins has some interesting aspects, I'm not a fan of the back and forth of the two characters stories.

Two strong fathers. Two cousins with mental issues. An MC that keeps club business from the women, even when it affects them. This book starts with a prequel for another story. It

RATING: 5 Stars

I picked up Falling Hard and didn't put it back down until I was completely finished. The writing flows smoothly through out the book and it just captures you right from the beginning. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and watching them fall. Emmie and Libby both just break your heart and you truly feel for them throughout. I LOVE Maiden and Lynx. I don't think I could come up with any two men that both captivated me in one book. Maiden was so understanding

Emmie’s father doesn’t have time or believe some of the things she says. Even knowing she has schizophrenia and bipolar, she hadn’t self-harmed in a while and her father not caring causes her to.
Libby tried to stay away from the MC, as much as she could, all she wanted was someone who would accept her, the good and the bad, her anxiety and panic attacks.
Both girls want out of the MC life, the only problem is they fall for men in the club, but with some misunderstandings the both want to leave,

All I can say is WOW! This one is crazy intense from the first page until the last. Everything about the story will keep you glued to the pages, and haunt your thoughts after you read the last word. The writing styles of Simone and Zebell blend together perfectly, and they have a wonderful way of putting you into the book vs just reading it. I think one of the things I love the most about this one is the realistic way they characters are broken. They have been deeply affected by their upbringing ...more

Falling Hard: Sacred Souls MC by Simone Elise. I thought the cover art was beautiful and I really enjoy a good MC book. After reading the blurb, the plot seemed really good to me. This book had a lot of twists involving werewolves, stalkers, and mental illness- each was talked about, but I wasn’t really following the flow all that well. I liked the plot and characters, but I had a hard time keeping engaged until the end of the story. I will give this author another shot with a different story, I ...more

Emmie and Libby are cousins but feel more like sisters. They both battle their inner demons on a daily basis just to breathe. They grew up in the MC life and have always felt like a burden to their fathers. They stumble across two men that make them forget the need to be normal. It changes their lives. If only they knew how to accept it.

The characters have an amazing depth. I loved getting to know them. The passion is fierce and the men are strong, loyal, and protective. The angst drew me in an

No one writes MC like Simone and Falling Hard didn’t disappoint. It is a fascinating introduction into a new supernatural mc and I can’t wait to see where she takes it. I love Simone Elise’s books and was excited to see this new journey she was taking us on with Falling hard. Emmie and Libby are multifaceted characters with so much personality and inner strength despite their pasts and issues with mental health. Such a great starting point for this new series. Highly recommend.

If you love MC romance this one will definitely hold caliber. They were cousins who really did not know about the heritage that they came from and to top it off they it touches on mental disabilities with the cousins. When they are threatened by an unknown stalker, it will take the MC and the men they come to care for to keep them safe. This is an intense emotional thrill ride of a story that will captivate and hold you spellbound until the last page.

I loved this book! Once I started reading it was hard to put down. There is so many twists and turns in the book that kept me wanting to read to find out what was going to happen. The book is in two povs, Emmie and her cousin Libby. It can be confusing at times to remember which character is talking but I still found this book to be amazing! I recommend this book, it is totally worth it.

I can not recommend this story enough!!! This book grabs you from the get go. As with all Simone's books expect to laugh, cry, and anxiously wait for the end of the story.

The dual POV only adds to the experience, as you are basically getting 2 books in one. Told by cousins whose stories intermingle, expect a roller coaster of emotions and to be unable to stop reading.

Definitely falling hard

Another awesome piece by Simone Elise . I don't think I can explain correctly how much I love her books . She has amazing characters that you literally can't help yourself to love. Oh an the storylines just suck you right in but she does have one bad habit she leaves you on a hell of a cliffhanger when it's a series.. Uugh!
You're going to love Libby and Emmie.. Trust me have to read it!

An amazing cliffhanger that loves to toy with your emotions while sucking the life from your lungs throughout the suspense filled twists that keep you on edge pleading for the abuse it plays on your nerves for just one more word but left reeling on an adrenaline fueled high with an empty butterfly pit in your stomach gnawing away as the last words plague your mind with want for so much more! One heck of an addicting emotionally chaotic must read!

Great characters, but left filling unfinished then right into another story.
Loved the fact that story delta with people with mental health issues living with their family and being as normal as they can.
Drug use and food issues touched on but not played out.
I love the way this author writes with so much feeling, just not her endins.

Patience is not one of my virtues but I am hooked and can't wait for the next book in this series!! A definite 5 star read and I highly recommend it!! ...more

These are new authors to me, so I was not sure what to expect, but I will certainly be looking out for their work in the future. Emmie and Libby are cousins who want out of the MC life, and feel that they will never be loved for just being themselves. This is a good story, which touches on werewolves, stalkers, and mental illness. I look forward to reading more in this series.

I adored this book, my first by Simone Elise. It ended as a cliffhanger but I am wanting more! A charming story of two cousins who unexpectedly find love where they were not looking. It was enticing and entertaining, I was at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. I’m excited to see what comes next.

Falling Hard is a good start to the Monsters of Mayhem series. The story is good, the characters are interesting and the cliffhanger ending left me wanting to read more. This author took on a sensitive topic of mental illness and how the girls and their families deal with all of it. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
