Title – Falling Free
Author – Annica Rossi
Series – Fall Series, #2
Lauren St. John was about to do the unthinkable. Parker Blackwell already had. The moment Parker agreed to return to The Grandview Inn for old time’s sake, he knew his days of carefree no-strings attached sex were numbered. Just the thought of seeing the girl that he’d spent the last seven years trying to forget had him completely off his game. After two short days and one long hot summer night together, the hard line he’d drawn between sex and love was officially blurred, and he found himself doing the unthinkable. Falling in love with her all over again.
Parker knew that the stubborn and independent Lo would never admit it, but she needed his help now more than ever, so when she accepted his less than honorable deal to help save her family business it was game on. He had five days to earn a second chance, and he was prepared to do anything, even if it meant revealing secrets about his life that could cause him to lose her for good. Was he crazy to hope that the free spirited girl he used to know might meet him in the middle? In his world love had never been neatly defined. Maybe they could redefine it together. There was only one way to find out…
On a plane to Las Vegas and determined to save the only life she’d ever known, Lo was hell bent on meeting the demands of Parker Blackwell’s twisted offer then leaving him in the past where he belonged. But she had to be careful. The dangerously sexy man that walked back into her life wasn’t the same boy she used to know, and every time she was near him her whole body reminded her.
A fateful reunion. An indecent proposal. Two lives changed forever… after what happens in Vegas.
I was glad that I had this waiting for me as soon as I finished the first book with how it ended because it takes off right after the first one stopped. I liked that there were no time gaps or jumps so we really got just a pure continuation of the story: Lauren in Vegas!
I liked to see this whole other side of Lo. I think it added so much dimension to her character. She was able to let go of the “weight of the world” of her responsibilities with The Grand and explore more of who she was as a woman. She had little to no inhibitions and the author did a great job exploring her thoughts and feelings.
I also enjoyed getting to know Parker a little bit better. The first book didn’t have much of them together, but this one was packed with just the two of them. It really allowed the reader to get into his head! I only wish there were more chapters that were from his point of view. From the synopsis, I expected to get a decent amount, but there were only a couple. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a tad disappointed.
Overall, this one was DEFINITELY steamier than the first one! Those scenes were so incredibly hot! This book leaves off on another cliffhanger, so be warned before picking it up. Not a bad book, and now I’ll be on pins and needles waiting until the next one!
