[Blog Tour + Review + Excerpt] Hard to Fall by Marquita Valentine

Hard to Fall by Marquita Valentine
Series: Take the Fall #4
Release Date: October 18, 2016
Publisher: LoveSwept



New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, is releasing the fourth book in her Take the Fall Series.

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’m trying to treat you differently.” I shake my head. “That’s not what I mean.”
“What do you mean?” She takes a step closer, the scent of her coconut sunscreen filling my senses.
“Look. I haven’t been in a relationship in a long time. Most of the women I meet either want to be with me because of the whole fireman aspect or they want to be with me because of who my father is.”
“I don’t care about either of those things, at least not when it comes to what I want from you,” she clarifies.
“I know that which is why I’m doing my level best to get to know you before I fuck you. And believe me, I will, just as soon as you—”
She drops the towel. Saylor drops the motherfucking towel and stands there, nothing on her luscious body.
My legs propel me forward, my hands go to her shoulders, pulling her to me until her cold skin hits mine. Her nipples scrape my chest, making me hard, making my board shorts so tight that I’ll probably have to rip them off.
She tips up her chin, all at once a siren and seductive. “As soon as I do what?”
I touch her face and she leans into me, rubbing against my hand as her lashes fall to her cheeks. “Say yes.”
Her eyes open. “Yes.”


4 Stars!

The story has laughs, pain, secrets, fear, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first...
Take the Fall (Take the Fall, #1)
When We Fall (Take the Fall #2)
After We Fall (Take the Fall #3)

This is Saylor and Hayden’s story. Hayden knows he is going to have to settle down with the perfect wife in order to keep his promise to his father about running for office. He is just not ready for that now. He is more interested in being single. Hayden is a temptation he is going to take. But after all is said and done will it be the best night of his life that he will never forget or will he not remember a thing? Hunter was drunk and has no idea about their own wedding. With him pursuing his wife you get to see him as he falls hard. But will secrets and the future he is supposed to have ruin them? Or can they overcome the secrets and fall together?

I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I recommend this book.
