Fall with Me
(Wait for You #4)
Jennifer L. Armentrout

First - The Blurb:

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.

Second - The Tease(rs):

Tease #1
Our eyes locked as I placed my hand on his shoulder. I started to push off, but then he lowered his head. I looked up as his lips brushed mine. It was a slow sweep. He made the pass with his lips once and then twice. I couldn't breathe as I felt the heat of his mouth increasing the most gentle pressure as he held me in place. There was an almost questioning feel to how his lips moved over mine, as if it were for the very first time. And it wasn't, but the night at his place, he hadn't kissed me like this - not as tender, not so sweet that a ball of stupid emotion formed in the back of my throat. This kiss... it was like he cherished me.

Tease #2
"Whoa." He'd caught my arm before I could step out of the truck. "Where do you think you're going?"
"Um? To work."
"Not like that."
Confused, I'd opened my mouth to ask for a little more detail, but then he'd tugged me towards him. "We don't say good-bye to one another," he'd claimed. "We kiss."
And we did.

Like with all the other books in this series, Roxy and Reese's story is filled with deep and intense emotions. But... in true JLA fashion, there are also a lot of swoon worthy moments to accompany them. Another awesome read.

My rating: 5 out of 5
