In the captivating new novel in Marquita Valentine’s Boys of the South spinoff series—perfect for readers of Abbi Glines and Katy Evans—a small-town sweetheart takes a chance on the bad boy who’s always been her hottest fantasy.

The last time Piper Ross saw her best friend’s sexy older brother, Jase Simmons, he was being taken away in handcuffs. Seven years later, two things haven’t changed: Piper is still head-over-heels in love with him . . . and Forrestville’s chief of police—Piper’s dad—still hates his guts. So when Piper sees a chance to get close to Jase, she makes her move—literally. As his new roommate, and as the office manager of his tattoo shop, Piper won’t be satisfied until Jase knows that she wants to be his.

The quintessential good girl, Piper is pure temptation for Jase. The only reason he’s always kept his distance is because she’s the last person he’d ever want to hurt. But once he realizes that Piper is ready to take the leap, everything just makes sense. Suddenly Jase feels like a new man—until nasty rumors start swirling and Piper’s heartless father stirs up even more trouble. Now Jase must convince Piper that she wasn’t wrong about him . . . because falling in love never felt so right.

My Thoughts:

After I read Take the Fall, the first book in the series, there was a snippet of the first chapter of this book in it. I read that little tease and wished that it could be December already so that I could read Jase and Piper's book!

Jase and Piper have had an interesting history with him going away to jail for 7 years and her being in love with him since she was 14. She's determined to not let anything get in their way now that he's back, so she works things out so that she can make her way into his life and heart so that he can't ignore her any longer. And it works... the bad boy starts to fall for the good girl. Together they have to make it through some obstacles, but their determination will help them make it through.

When We Fall is a sweet and charming story of two people who were meant to be together. I enjoy the depth to this series, the dark past and the future that opens up the curtain for the light. Piper and Jase were amazing together--honest and hot and real. You could feel the emotion leap off the page and your heart went out to them with the things they dealt with in the past, and the difficulties in their present that they overcome. Great second book to the Take the Fall series by Marquita Valentine!

My Rating:


  1. I kinda hate those first teaser chapters of the next book in the series. Every time I read them I either want more or thought it was part of the book and am shocked at that the book ended when I thought there were more pages. You know? Still, I'm glad this one worked out for you. I love a romance with some depth to it.

    1. Oh, I know. I usually avoid them because I don't like waiting, but I really loved these characters while reading the first book and was too excited to refrain from the tease, lol.

  2. Oh it has been ages since I've read one of hers. I probably should get back on that, huh? lol
