Goodreads’ Book Description:
Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.
Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.
If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…
First and foremost, K.A. Tucker is one of those authors that I will never not one-click right away. I was convinced that I’d love Ashton from ONE TINY LIE forever, that is, until I met Ben Morris.
In addition to my newly found hardcore crush on Ben, I’m definitely girl-crushing on Reese MacKay, too. She was this crazy, sass-filled 21-year-old woman who could play guitar and sing, so pretty much everything I wish I was. I need to be best friends with her, ASAP.
The writing is flawless, the characters have SO many stories to tell, and I love books that can switch POV’s with such graceful transitions.
The only thing better than Reese and her spunky attitude and amazing sense of humor was Reese AND Ben put together. I spent way too much time laughing at my kindle while reading their conversations in this book. Seriously, I’m sure my mom thinks I’m certifiable at this point.
Ben and Reese have what everyone wants: a best friendship with insanely real chemistry.
Five Ways To Fall was SUCH an amazing read, leaving me with even higher expectations on love and happy to be a Miami native. I might even try some key lime pie for a change, too.
Do yourself a favor and one-click this book NOW! 😉
