Fall with Me
Roxy is a bartender at the local watering hole. Reece is the cop she has been in love with since the age of fifteen. Nearly a year earlier, the two had a major alcohol-fueled miscommunication and they went without speaking. When an antagonist from Roxy’s youth comes back and tries to make contact, Reece is there to make sure she doesn’t get hurt. Time spent in close contact of course leads to more and soon the two become a couple. But, when local girls go missing or beaten, Roxy may be in even more danger than anticipated.
Like most of Armentrout’s work, the storyline is very character-driven. The book was engaging and dramatic without the angst like most New Adult novels seem to have, until the end when there is a cliché “twist”. It was an unnecessary addition that ended up detracting from the character of Roxy as a whole. Fans of the series will love Roxy and Reece’s story and the way that prior characters resurface, and their sub-stories are advanced. Each of the books can be read as a standalone, however for maximum benefit, it is highly suggested to read the series in order.
