'Taking the Fall' is the first book of the 'Viper's MC ' series by Kally ash. This was a new to me author and I would definitely be reading more of her.

MC Romances are my all time favorite and I loved this one too! Nick and Alexis are perfect and I can't wait to have more of them!

Taking the Fall is the first book in the Vipers MC series and we start off with Nick, an ex-con who has just been released after serving five years for a crime he didn't commit, and Alex, the daughter of the Vipers President with whom she has a tricky relationship at best. These two find themselves working together when Nick asks for a job in return for somewhere to live and eat.

The attraction between these two is immediate but neither of them do anything about it, giving the book a bit of a slo

Taking The Fall is a great start to the first book in the Vipers MC series. Nick and Alex are two people needing to take a different path, however sometimes danger comes looking for you no matter what. An action packed, drama filled MC romance with chaos and plenty of twists and turns to have you on the edge of your seat. Nick and Alex’s story is fast paced, emotional, intense and steamy and will leave you craving more from this series.

Nick and Alexis

He's just out of prison for a crime he really didn't commit. He has his reasons for being in there but now he's free. He needs a job and a place to live. What he finds will put him in a situation with his past and hope for a future.

Both characters are strong with deep emotional feelings. They have losses and trust issues. When the past interferes with their present will they make it through--alive?

Two warring MC's. Two brothers--the actual blood-related kind. Parental relationship

This is an addictive story of action, passion, and mystery. Going in I thought it was going to be the typical MC romance but thus is so much more. The depth of the characters, the constant secrets, the passion the action... I couldn't put the story down. I really loved the wrold the author created and the dynamics between the main characters was explosive! Highly recommended. I want more... ...more

I really liked this book. I loved how there was a bit of everything. I couldn't put book down once started.

I loved Alex and Nick together, they many of have a past they didn't know about. But they find chemistry together and they go through a lot but they both help each other.

I can't wait for more.

This is a new to me author and one I'll definitely be reading more from. This is a brand new series though and from the first page I was hooked. The author has come up with likeable characters and a plot that will draw you in and refuse to let you let you go. This is definitely one series you don't want miss.

With secrets lurking around every corner, will N & A be able to open up enough to have each others back? Or will their walls stay stubbornly up?

A fast paced book that will keep you guessing

Nick has just been released from prison after 5 years for a crime he didn't commit.  Alex is a down on her luck mechanic who takes a chance and hires Nick to be security for her garage in exchange for food and a place to stay.  They know next to nothing about each other except that they have off the charts chemistry.  Little do they know, their lives have been intertwined for years in a very tragic way.  With the mess that Alex has herself in and both of their pasts coming home to roost, you hav ...more

This was an amazing book. I wasnt sure at first, but by chapter 2 I was hooked and I couldn't put it down till I finished it. The characters are great, and of course I fell in love with Lucifer (who wouldn't fall in love with a pitty baby hehe). The twist towards the end shocked me but it a good way. I totally understand why she went that way once I got to the end of the book. It was just amazing. And now I can't wait for the next one ...more

I really enjoyed this book and storyline. Was a great read, can't wait for the next book!

I received an ARC for my honest review.

Nick did 5 years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. Upon release he wants a clean, simple life. Finding employment in a local mechanic shop, owned and run by Alexis Cross, Nick finds himself in a situation dangerously close to dragging him into the life he is trying to steer clear of.
Alexis is trying to make her own way, despite her parentage and past relationships,

Check out my full review on my blog:

The story is told in dual perspective: a chapter is told by the male character, Nick and the next is told by the female protagonist, Alex. The perspective alternate and the book starts with Nick getting out of prison. After the first chapter, I thought the book was ok, but in the beginning, I didn't like the female protagonist that much. However, the more I read the more she grew on me. I ended up loving this book and I

Taking the Fall by Kally Ash was a marvelous book about two people whose paths crossed before either one realized. It has a taste of MC without being fully based in the MC world. It’s very steamy and hot! I loved that Kally added some action to keep you on the edge of your seat. Once you get into the story, you become addicted to Alex and Nick and their crazy love story!

Nick Sobolev was sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit. After 5 years he is released and now needs to find a job and start his life over as an ex con.
Alexis Cross owns a mechanic shop and Nick walks in looking for a job. Alexis is trying to avoid her father but in a city it is hard to do that. Her past is catching up to her and not in a good way.
I wanted to know more about both of them and Kally Ash did not disappoint. Learning who Alexis's father is and her past made me wanting more to re

Taking the Fall was extremely good! I enjoyed reading it and seeing the story between Alex and Nick. They were so well matched! However I am only giving it 3 hearts because I personally feel it was lacking some thing. It just needed a bit more substance to it, if that makes any sense? It just seemed TOO easy and it was super close to "insta-love" which I'm not a fan of. But like I said, the characters are super well written and the plot line was good even though it is kind of cliche. So if you'r ...more

I really loved this book. I have to say, I am going through a bit of a MC romance phase and this novel didn't disappoint. Alex and Nick have great chemistry, the suspense, passion and intrigue is well written and certainly enough to hold reader interest.

I thought the characters were well crafted, with enough spark to be likable and seem real, without their unique characteristics being overdone.

All in all, I think Kally was particularly good at providing an alpha male who was extremely sensitive

I really enjoyed this start to Nick and Alexis's story. Having done time for a crime he didn't commit, Nick finds himself in a place he didn't expect and Alexis is there, bring the past and present to collide.
There's emotions flying and deep issues that are ingrained into the characters, and I loved that this story wasn't just a simple endeavour. There's lots of action and heat to keep the plot moving and it definitely makes you want to keep reading. Looking forward to the next installment!

I very much enjoyed Taking the Fall by Kally Ash.
There was sweet romance with sparks and great chemistry.
There were secrets, danger and a bit of suspense.
The story was steamy, funny, intense and emotional.
I liked the characters, the story and the writing. And at the end it was a good contemporary romance that lets you escape reality for a few hours, so exactly what I needed - 4.25 stars.
