Title : Fall With Me
Series : Wait For You #4
Author : Jennifer L. Armentrout
Releases : March 31, 2015
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.

~ 5 Letting Go Stars ~
Fall With Me is book 4 in the Wait For You Series by Jennifer Armentrout (J. Lynn) and is probably my favorite of the series, or at least tied with book 1. I absolutely LOVED this book. I was a little nervous reading this one, because Book 4 Stay With Me wasn’t my favorite and felt it dragged a bit, so my fear was we were going to see that with this book as well. Well let me tell you…..NOT the case!!!!
This book was not stop action. You are thrust into the story right from the beginning and you don’t let go until the last page. This book was filled with laughter, suspense, mystery, love, and of course sex. Fall With Me is a friends to lovers story, but she created another plot to build into the main story. Besides the friends to lovers plot, we are sent on a journey of letting go. Roxy carries a lot of guilt over a past accident and this book shows us how she finally learned to let that go and that she does deserve happiness.
This book is about Roxy (Works at Jax’s Bar) and Reece. We met both of these characters is the previous book…. Stay With Me. They have known each other for many years. They met when Roxy was sixteen. Roxy has been in love with Reece for the past 6 years, but never told him about it. They were great friends over the years until one night when things crossed a line….then their relationship turned rocky to say the least. This story is told completely from Roxy’s POV because truly she is the main character of the story. So while Reece and Roxy are trying to fix things between them we are thrust into another storyline involving Roxy. I don’t want to say anymore because I don’t want to spoil any of the mystery of this story. I will just say that this book will keep you guessing until the end, when all is revealed 😉
What I truly loved about this book was that nothing was dragged out. We didn’t have to wait the majority of the book to see Reece and Roxy get together. J. Lynn pretty much puts you right into the middle of things right from the start. The mystery/suspense of the story is throughout the whole book, but that just makes you want to turn the pages faster to find out how it all plays out.
I know this review may seem rather confusing and vague, but I really can’t explain my thoughts and feelings accurately without spoiling the story for everyone. So I will just leave you with this…..this is a MUST READ!!!!!
