Title Five Ways to Fall
Series Ten Tiny Breaths, book 4
Author K. A. Tucker
Release Date June 24, 2014
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…
I will admit that since I've been reading the Ten Tiny Breaths series, I haven't really had a desire to read Ben's story. However, after reading it, I'm so glad it was written. In fact, this may very well be my favorite book of the series. The humor is what did it for me. While there may have been funny parts in the other books, this book had it in spades. And I loved it!
First, there's Ben. He's handsome and cocky. He's unapologetic about his ways. He's a great guy, though. He's a good friend and he's got love to give. Then, there's Reese. She's wild and a little bit crazy. She's unapologetic about her ways. She's perfect for Ben. Together, they were witty and funny. And full of sexual tension! It was a delight to watch these two come together.
K. A. Tucker stated at the end of the book that this is the last planned book of the series. While that's sad (I could think of a couple of characters that I'd like more insight into), I'm looking forward to reading other things by her.
