Review: Five Ways To Fall by K.A. Tucker

Five Ways to Fall by K.A. Tucker

    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 Line: "Is it just me?"

    Review: This is the last book in the Ten Tiny Breaths series and I have loved all the books so much. Five Ways to Fall was about the much awaited story of Ben, strip club bouncer turned lawyer and I have waited so long to read about this arrogant charmer and yes you heard me right I used both those words to describe him didn't think you could combine the two but that is who Ben was total man whore and honest about it all but there was this charm to him that made him so damn likable and maybe it also had to do with the fact that we have met him in the other books and have already gotten to know him and how good of a person he is regardless of his choices when it comes to being in actual relationships.

    I would have to say Five Ways to Fall was by far the most different from the other books in the series the other ones were gut wrenching and filled with an insane amount of heartache while this one even though it had it's moments was nothing like the others instead I found myself laughing quite a bit. 

    As far as the girl chosen for Ben, Reese she was perfect for him on every level imaginable. I couldn't have pictured anyone more suitable for him. Reese was a true bad ass, I mean she had the crazy hair and the motorcycle to match it and pair it up with that attitude she screamed pure awesomeness.

    What I liked the most was the relationship between Ben and Reese. It was realistic in the way things evolved between the two. The banter between the two alone made it worth the read they are both very witty characters constantly challenging each other. I loved seeing them growing closer as the story progressed.

    Overall this was a great book and I am so sad to see this series end. I can't wait to see what K.A. Tucker has planned next.

     Memorable Quotes:~ "I just helped you make your ex-husband jealous, so you're welcome. I don't do pretend boyfriend shit. I'm normally Switerland. I went rogue for you, so be greatful."

    ~ "Fucking Facebook. The enabler of Mutiny," I growl under my breath.

    ~"Word to the wise: if you have to fight over a guy, he's not worth it. Go for the one who's waiting for you."
