Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.
Fall With Me is the 4th book in Armentrout’s ‘adult romance’ series – Wait For You. Each book can ideally be read as a stand alone, but there are characters that appear throughout the series, whose stories you might be missing out on. This particular story focuses on Roxy and Reece. Roxy first appeared in Stay With Me as a supporting character and friend of Calla’s. Roxy is a bit on the eccentric side with her personality and mannerisms, but ultimately plays a very close friend to Calla in her time of need.
Reece made brief appearance in the previous novel as well, and conversations between Roxy and Calla hinted that this book would most likely focus on Roxy’s history and future with Reece. From the synopsis of this book, it sounds like it may take a darker look at the relationships between Armentrout’s characters. Each of her previous books in this series, have had dark themes, but with Reece being a police officer, I think this one may have a slightly darker approach compared to previous ones.
This book is for an audience of 18+
