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.

Review by Becky Rendon
4 of 5 stars
What do you get when you cross a dorky Star Wars/Star Trek junkie that has an unusual view on reality with a playboy fireman being groomed for politics?
You get Hard to Fall. That includes (wait for it)...:
ridiculously hot "make out" sessions
complete and total fandom conversations that lead to smiling and knowing looks
All of these, with a side of:
lots and lots of secrets
I forgot the fun earlier, my bad.
Though I have a couple of books by this author, this is actually my first read. I am really excited to start the Take the Fall series- in order this time- though it's not necessary at all. It's fun, funny, and sweet. But don't let the "nice, boring" words fool you, there's plenty of filthy talking, dirty deeds done, and unusual conversations to keep you well entertained!

Review by Sam Lewis
This review of Hard to Fall by Marquita Valentine is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog. It is book 4 in the Take the Fall Series and can be read as a standalone. It was a sweet romance. I really enjoyed it. I give it 4 Stars. I haven't read any of the other books in the series either. If you like sweet romance then this book is for you.
Hard to Fall is the story of Saylor and Hayden. Saylor is a quirky nerd who runs an animal shelter. Hayden is a firefighter. Both Saylor and Hayden come from families in the spotlight. They meet at their best friends wedding and the rest will unfold as you read it.
