5 Star Review Down By Contact (Men of Fall #4) by S.R.Grey

This is the fourth book in the series from S.R. Grey and as I have come to expect from her books, it was well written, with characters that you cannot help but fall for and I was riveted from the first to the last chapter. Down by Contact was a fabulous addition to the Men of Fall series.

This is Zane Tinsbury and Morgan Delano’s story and it was an entertaining read. Zane is the wide receiver for the Columbus Comets football team. He is

A really enjoyable story about Zane Tinsbury and Morgan Delano. This is a easy to read, sweet tale of finding “the one” in the most unexpected place. The fourth book in S.R. Grey’s Men Of Fall series but can easily be read as a standalone.

Morgan is recovering from a bad marriage and divorce from Neil, which led to her having to run away when he started stalking and scaring her. She has been in Columbus for a year and managed to set herself up with a job and tiny apartment. Feeling safe at last

This is technically book 4 in the series, but each one can be read as a standalone book and the reader will have no problems jumping in right here...although they will want to go back and read the previous books just because they are that good!

This book gives us Zane, who is building his dream house, in the woods away from fans...and Morgan, who is running from her ex-husband again...he just won't give up...she is hiding in the house, hoping to be able to stay when Zane finds her and instead of

Morgan thought she had escaped the threat from her past and had started a new life only to have him track her down. Fearing for her safety she becomes a squatter in a home under construction. She thought she had been careful about not disrupting anything or attracting attention until the homeowner shows up unexpectedly and the jig is up.

Zane has created a successful career in football but hasn’t had the same success in his personal life as there is nothing he would like more than to find a woman

Zane lives and breathes football. His life doesn't have room for anything or anyone else but he is lonely. Whilst building his dream house, he believes he has furry friends staking out his home but instead it is Morgan who is squatting.

Morgan is living her life on edge, not knowing who to trust and hiding out from her abusive ex. She has nothing to her name and is isolated from everyone. When Zane discovers his human squatter, his reaction is all you can ask for and demonstrates who he is with t

Another amazing job done by S.R. Grey with Zane and Morgan’s story. Though it was difficult to grasp how accepting Zane was of Morgan breaking into his house seeing shelter, once he found out what prompted her actions settled my uneasiness.

Their connection begins upon initial contact, continuing to increase with every turn of the page. Not to mention the steam, though Grey never takes it over the top but just enough to leave the readers satisfied. And don’t get me started on character developme

This is the fourth book in the series and I absolutely loved it!! Morgan is on the run from her ex husband and finds a house under construction that she can hide in. Everything is going along as good as it possibly can be when the owner of the house shows up. Zane, a wide receiver for the local professional football team goes to check on the progress of the construction on his house only to find a beautiful woman sleeping in what will be his bedroom.

Down by Contact is an entertaining sports romance, which is one of my favorite genres. Although Zane, a professional football player, meets Morgan under surprising circumstances, the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Zane and Morgan are both ready for some changes in their lives. They are perfect for each other, share a lot of chemistry and I loved reading their story. If you enjoy reading about a hot guy in a football uniform, you will love this one.

Down by Contact is book four in the Men of Fall series and is Zane and Morgan's book. What do you get when a football player is having a,house built and a mysterious woman needs to hide from a stalker ex-husband? You get a story that is packed with action and some serious steam. S.R. Grey hasn't written a book that I didn't like and this is one I loved. Can't wait to read more. ...more

Steamy Sports story.
The plot is easily followed since each chapter is titled. The point of view goes back and forth between Zane and Morgan.
I like the excitement of the football scenes. It is fun when Morgan goes to the game.
It is an interesting premise for the book, but it falls a little flat. It is rather simple. The stalker sub-plot is done very quickly.
On the whole this is a good book. It is easy to read and it goes fast.

5 He's A Great Persuader Stars

I love these two together. Their insta-love is sweet and sexy and I love how he’s all alpha male protector. It’s wonderful seeing Morgan realize she has so much to offer Zane and not think he’s too good for her… after some persuasion on his part of course!

This is just a fun series. The football players are generally good guys and Zane is no different. He is a gentleman at heart with a caring soul. Morgan is in hiding from a crazy ex when she meets Zane. There meeting may have been unconventional, but it doesn’t stop the sparks that fly between them. It is just a really easy story to read with a plot that flows smoothly. The characters are easy to like and to root for their happy ending.

Great story!

Morgan who’s hiding from her ex-husband, hides in Zane’s new house that’s being renovated. She has no idea that the house belong to a sport star Zane Tilsbury, and the shock she feels and fear when she finds him in the house is enormous. She thought he’ll tell her to get out of his house, but instead Zane lets her stay but on few conditions. And that’s how their friendship start that later becomes something more.

3.5 stars for this romance which centres on Morgan and Zane. Their romance is one which is warm and sweet, with both main characters possessing good hearts. It is a quick, unchallenging read, which did not, for me, quite hit the mark, in terms of pulling me into the narrative. Not quite what I would expect from the author, though it was a pleasant way to spend a few .💖💖💖

This was such an interesting read. The story line has a bit of suspense, a little mystery and a whole lot of intense attraction. The character are strong and determined with amazing connections and interactions. Zane will do anything to keep Morgan safe, is it going to be enough?

I voluntarily read and reviewed this book; all opinions expressed are my own.

Absolutely loved everything about this read. If you know anything about S.R Grey then you know you are in for a wild ride, a plot spinning whirlwind that ends with epic amazingness!!!! That’s what I would say about this read. I couldn’t put it down, each time I had time to read I would find myself 30-40% more finished. It was truly a phenomenal read. And let’s just say everyone needs a Zane 💚 I love him so much!

5 stars S.R Grey! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

I've read the other books in this series and enjoy SR Grey's style of writing. Something about this story was a bit slower for me and didn't grab my attention quite as much as the others. Perhaps it was the unlikely scenario of how these two met - her hiding from her dangerous ex - squatting in the house he is having built - someone how going un-noticed by the construction workers, and then him being totally ok when he discovers her. Love at first I guess does crazy things. The lingering presenc ...more

Zane is a professional football player who is having a large home being built. That will make is life almost perfect. Only thing missing is someone special to share it with.
Morgan is on the run from an abusive ex and has nowhere to turn, no one to help, and no money to escape again.
When Zane finds her hiding in his house that's still being built- he doesn't throw her out and instead tries to help her.
