Wedding bells are ringing—and tempers are flaring—as the Take the Fall series continues in this sweet, sexy novel from the bestselling author of After We Fall (“This beautiful story kept me transfixed until the very end.”—Krista Lakes).

As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife. Hayden just isn’t ready for that sort of commitment . . . not with women like beautiful, curvy Saylor Dean—the naughty bridesmaid he recognizes the morning after his buddy’s wedding—tempting Hayden to stay single forever.

The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love.

I have loved every book in this series and Marquita Valentine has just added another winner!

Hayden has intrigued me since we first met him several books ago. I was so excited he was getting his own story! The sexy fireman is more than I expected though, however, the surprise wasn’t all positives. There is a bit of a manwhore and jerk in Hayden, but it just gives depth to him. Nobody is perfect and it makes it all the sweeter to see him truly changing for Saylor. He’s weighed down by his past and expectations but he doesn’t deter him from his goal when he decides he wants Saylor.

Saylor is a really fun character, but she is also riddled with insecurity. While it’s justifiable, she lets it overshadow a lot of the things Hayden does and it disappointed me in her at times. I felt for her though, her situation growing up and the way a lot of people treat her just sucks. When she does open up and let Hayden lighten her life, it brings out more of her quirky, fun personality. Her love of animals, sarcastic wit, fierce ability to love, they all made me want to be her friend.

No surprise here, the book is insanely hot! The chemistry between Hayden and Saylor burns hotter than the fires he puts out. His mouth…oh that deliciously filthy mouth. He can light my fire any day.

The story line had some unexpected turns, but I will admit that there was one huge mystery I figured out like three chapters in. However, there were still details involved that I didn’t see coming. This author always provides a great cast of supporting characters, ones that did to the shape of the story and often make me wonder about their own stories.

This book just got me even more addicted to this author. It’s definitely one for the re-read shelf!
