One brilliant smile, and my heart beat for what felt like the very first time.
One night as he held my sister and sang to her, it broke.

Years later, his smile is different, and I curse my heart when it beats in an all too familiar way, a way it’s only ever beat for him... again.

He was once hers, could he ever truly be mine?

Ben is quite the teasing man, “if you moan like that tasting Mom’s Jell-O, imagine how you’re going to feel when I put my di—” I smack his bare abs, and he smirks." Kendall has a ballsy side, "she nods then pushes her hand inside my zipper and grips my ***k like she owns the fucking thing. She does." I liked this book, I liked Ben.

Full review to come!!

“it’s not only little girls who buy into fairy tales. Sometimes guys fall for the bullshit, too.”


One of favourite from MJ Fields and Ben and Kendall's story is definitely going to melt a lot of hearts. Ben is the epitome of a book boyfriend and this guy was just simply adorable with a capital A. Kendall is a strong woman and knows what she wants and how she wants to get it. I loved that she stuck to her morals and her guns despite the sex appeal and the bloss

Omg Ben is the most swoon worthy character that I have read in a long time. Ben knows who he wants and who we wants is Kendall. Truly a beautiful love story that will have you reading non stop. I loved every minute of Ben and Kendall’s story and I didn’t want too see it end. Another 5 Star read that was absolutely phenomenal and the characters were perfection.


I voluntarily reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Such a beautiful story, such charming and endearing characters, such a wonderful love story. I absolutely loved everything about this book. So much so that I hated leaving this family when it ended. Two people who know what they want out of life, what their dreams are and are chasing their dreams when their two worlds collide one night, in some bar across the ocean, far away from their own home. Two people who have known each other since they were small children, with intertwined lives, now come ...more

I can't state this enough for the record, MJ Fields is AWESOME! Her brilliant writing style is so very addictive, and frankly, I find that I cannot get enough no matter what. I feels like she hasn't put out a new release in a cool minute, but honestly, I would feel that way if I didn't have a new release every week from her. Nonetheless, The Way We Fell was almost worth the wait, and I say that in reference that I would have killed for it in my life sooner! Kendall has had a thing for Ben for pr ...more

She is in no hurry to settle down when the perfect man comes along she will know.
She has seen how settling for less works in a relationship and she wants more in her life.

Ben is living his dream in the music industry. And never doubt that he is indulging in all the benefits that come with the lifestyle.
He is a firm believer in pleasure without commitment.

Ben Sawyer’s dream seems to be coming true. Kendall Ross loves to experience life and different cultures. Our author doesn’t make a big deal out of it but we have an older man/younger woman but the age difference is minimal. They have a history that gets revealed but it doesn’t seem to take over the story more of building a connection between the two.

This is another story in how differently men and women think. Our author does a good job with that and some moments will even give you a chuckle –

Its seems a long time since i read the love series and a bit bizarre going back to a time when Tessa and Lucas etc are young again with small children after having read books about said children all grown up, making their way in the world and finding love of their own.
All though this book is set at the same time as the love series books it is a stand alone so you don't have to have read them, however I found it added to the story for me having read these books previously and really enjoyed revis

This is Ben Sawyer and Kendal Ross’ story and can be read as a standalone, thou the Love Series will give a back story to some of the other characters

The quotes I could write from this book are numerous as I love MJ’s writing, but my favourites had to be“It’s not on little girls who buy into fairy tales, sometimes guys fall for the bullsh*t too” and “Don’t worry about my heart - I’m a big boy, but let me show you that I can care for yours”
These just made me fall in love with Ben Sawyer even mor

Ben and Kendall's story is a beautifully written love story. It's a flash back to when Tessa and Lucas were younger and had young children. This is Tessa's younger sister story and what a story it is!!!
All though this book is set at the same time as the love series books it is a standalone so you don't have to have read them but I'd recommend that you will want to. They're just that good !

As a massive fan of the Legacy series, it was such a treat to step back in time to the early Tessa and Lucas days, before we got to meet the next generation. The music was cooler, the internet had not taken over and social media was non existent. Ben and Kendall's love story is one for the ages. The title says it all, this story is how they fell and let me say, it was an epic journey! Love, heartbreak, tears of joy, anger and frustration. Mix in a little jealousy and some misunderstandings and y ...more

The Way We Fell is another brilliant and beautifully written love story which is a standalone in The Legacy Series. This time Kendall Ross, Tessa’s little sister, gets her story. She goes halfway around the world on holidays and has a chance encounter with someone she’s known her whole life, someone from just down the road, Ben Sawyer. There’s a deep attraction and an undeniable pull, sparks are there but they’re both chasing their dreams which currently means they have lives on different contin ...more

This is my very first read by this author and she’s excellent.
The story of Ben and Kendall. I assumed that this was part of a series when the author referred to other characters in the book like I was supposed to know them and their story but I didn’t feel like I was missing out not having read the other books....yet!

Cute love story of this couple that have met when they were little kids and Ben was briefly seeing Kendall’s sister Tessa. Nothing came out if that relationship but Ben really car

I have loved MJ Fields Love Series and I was looking forward to reading Kendall and Ben's story. MJ Fields writing is heartfelt and emotional.

I'm finding this review hard to write as I really struggled with Kendall. I just didn't like her, I can't put my finger on it but I struggled to connect with her and I found her quite dramatic and childish at certain points. Yes she was young and innocent, but she ran away or threw strops instead of dealing with what was in front of her. She was

If you've read the Love Series by MJ Fields, then you might have been wanting to know more about Kendall and Ben. I love that these two have a past. One that involves Ben being the ex-boyfriend of Kendall's sister. And Kendall was always the girl that wanted to boy. I love that it took going to a different country for these two to find each other. I love that Kendall was a girl who stood behind who she was and what she wanted from life and love. Ben supported her in this, but that didn't make th ...more

The Way We Fell, a standalone in the Legacy series by M.J. Fields, is just about too sweet to handle! It's romantic, and has a rom-com feel, with a small town romance vibe. If you're a lover of friends-to-lovers romance, with intense connections, and deep love, then The Way We Fell definitely needs to find it's way on to your kindle!

Although a standalone, for me personally, I think it's best enjoyed if you're familiar with the Legacy series. I love M.J. Fields' books but haven't been able to rea

The Way We Fell is a must read. Slightly emotional yet one of those feel good love stories that has you swooning. I loved Ben’s persistence and how he went out of his way to to silence Kendall’s fears and insecurities. She was quick to want to run and I get it, she walked into some situations that didn’t look the best on Ben’s part, but it felt like she was using those situations as an excuse to distance herself from Ben. She was quick to jump to conclusions even though he hadn’t given her a rea ...more

First off let me just say I love the Legacy series and all the families. If you haven’t read those books yet, I highly recommend it. It’s not needed and you won’t be left in the dark with The Way We Fell if you don’t. I just love when I read a series and the characters I fell in love with come back.

Ben has always held a place in my heart. Any hot man who is in touch with his feelings and isn’t afraid to go after love is #1 in my book.

Kendall has always wanted Ben. But after seeing so much hear

The Way We Fell is a beautiful standalone but if you want a little back ground to the secondary character's I suggest you read the Love Series first.

What happens when two old friends are miles away from home and bump into each other whilst both following their own dreams will it be a night of fun and both end up burnt or will it show them that their is more too come.

Ben Sawyer is riding the high on a career that his parents think is a hobby, little do they now their son is about to make it big

I'm relatively new to MJ Fields and I really enjoyed The Way We Fell it's a story that will totally melt your heart as you go on the journey of finding your soulmate with Ben and Kendall.

Ben and Kendall haven't seen each other in a few years but as soon as their eyes meet across a dance floor sparks fly. Ben used to date Kendalls sister but Kendall has always had feelings for him. After all these years it looks like those feelings are being reciprocated. Ben knows that Kendall isn't like the oth

He has patience of a saint and integrity that makes him perfect book boyfriend material. This book also had me laughing quite often and then it would hit me in the heart producing some tears.
