Happy release day, J. Daniels! When I Fall is the book in the Alabama Summer series. I absolutely adored this one. Reed and Beth are both likable and relatable. If you haven’t already, you can add this book to your Goodreads To-Read shelf. When I Fall is available on Amazon, B&N, and iBooks on a special release day price of $2.99.
Now onto my review…
There are three things I’ve come to expect when reading a book by J. Daniels: a sweet heroine, a hot hero, and a story peppered with humor and a little bit of angst. When I Fall delivered on all of those and then some.
Reed likes to keep his life and relationship simple. By simple meaning, no commitment beyond a night of pleasure. He has been burned badly before and he doesn’t intend to get hurt again. Beth is lost soul. She had no one. Her past was bleak and her future even bleaker until she found her aunt who happens to live in the same town Reed lives in. Despite that Beth has retained her optimism and even though the people in her life had let her done, it didn’t turn her into a bitter person.
I loved the chemistry between Reed and Beth. I had concerns at first about this book being a love triangle after reading the blurb. But my concerns were totally unfounded. Let me just lay to rest those worries for bit: For those who are asking if this is a love triangle, I will assure that it’s not. Reed and Beth, while they had issues to work on individually and as a couple, were in it 100%. I loved how their story progressed. Some of their banter was hilarious especially when you put Tessa in the mix.
Reed was the epitome of a reformed manwhore. The moment he acquiesced to what his heart was saying about Beth, he was amazing. And oh my gosh, I never thought he would be the kinky one in the group but he is. I love how he is with his friends, with Tessa and I especially love how he was with Beth. The other bonus for me were the cameos of the previous couples of the series.
Overall, another enjoyable read from J. Daniel. This author is definitely among my go-to authors when I’m in the mood for some sweet romantic read.
