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.

When We Fall by Marquita Valentine is the second book in the Take the Fall series. It can be read as a standalone, it does have an HEA and no cliffhanger. I enjoyed this one for exactly what it was. It’s a friends to lovers book, with a bit of second chance in there.

The story of these two characters drew me in right away. The biggest thing I can say for it is that it’s exceedingly sweet, as is the chemistry you’ll find within it. It has a great plot, it is well paced and will make you want to read the rest of the series.

Piper Ross has been in love with her best friends brother, Jase, for years. Things have unfolded however, as life does, and Jase ends up in jail for seven years. Upon his release, he opens a tattoo parlor, and Piper goes to work for him. That is as much as I’m going to tell you about it, without giving you spoilers.

Overall, a very sweet four star read for me, or hearts in my case. 😉 I would definitely recommend it.
