TAKE THE FALL BY MARQUITA VALENTINE
Release Date: July 21, 2015
As a teenager, Seth O’Connor went to jail for a crime he had nothing to do with. He took the fall to protect the girl he loved, but the cruel realities of prison hardened him. After doing his time, Seth shuts her out and enlists in the Marines—until his grandmother’s funeral forces him to come home and face Rowan Simmons once again. The woman she’s become puts all his high-school memories to shame, and Seth wants her more than ever. Can he be honest about why he denied her for so long?
After Seth pushed her away, Rowan swore that no man would ever hurt her again. But the boy who broke her heart has become a sexy Marine, capable of fulfilling her every desire—and now that he’s back in town, old feelings are simmering to a boil. Rowan wants to stay strong, even as her body surrenders to his expert touch. She only hopes that by taking him back, she can finally help heal the wounds that drove them apart.
REVIEW: TAKE THE FALL BY MARQUITA VALENTINE
Take the Fall (Take the Fall, #1) by Marquita Valentine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Choices made and lessons learned have a profound affect on the fragile relationship of two young people. Seth is a follower. In love, impressionable and at the wrong place at the wrong time he ends up making a choice he can never take back. Rowan is a scared and lost individual who tries to act tougher than she actually is. One unexpected event on a lone night impacts the lives of so many. Especially these two lovers. Years later will they be able to find their way back to each other or is the damage to great? I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Take the Fall is a story of redemption, forgiveness and love that is emotionally gripping. Each character had to grow up before they could make the situation better for themselves and each other.
