REVIEW | Fall Into Place by Alexa Riley

158Title: Fall Into Place
Author: Alexa Riley
Series: Taking The Fall #5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 12th 2015

Story 1: Mary & Anthony

Mary has belonged to Anthony since the day she was born. They’ve known each other their whole lives, but he won’t touch her until she says, ‘I Do.’

Their parents’ story should have been a cautionary tale, but when Mary finally agrees to Anthony’s proposal, they run away to Vegas to tie the knot.

But what do they do when things don’t go according to plan and they find themselves caught between a Russian sniper and his runaway daughter?

Easy! Lock themselves in a hotel room and pop some cherries!

Story 2: Samuel & Nika

Samuel’s twin sister, Mary, is off to Vegas to marry his best friend, Anthony. Samuel’s heading to Sin City with them to give her away, but trouble in the form of a sneaky brunette stops him dead in his tracks.

Nika’s on the run, and she’s found herself backed into a corner. But she’s been trained on how to defend herself, especially against a big beast like Samuel.

From the first look, he was finished and had no intention of ever letting her go.

You begged for the story of Mary and Anthony, and here it is! The final chapter in the Taking the Fall series closes with two short stories on the children of Carter, Layla, Saint, and Jeanette.

Warning: These stories are just as fierce, just as strong, and just as steamy as the rest of the series. These novellas can be read as standalones but will be enjoyed even more after reading the Taking the Fall series.


5 STARS!!!

5-you-were-made-for me-stars.

Fall Into Place is a part of a series, but it can be read as a standalone. If you really want to understand the story {for those who have read the past four books of Taking The Fall Series, you will know that those books were about the parents and this book is about the kids} You will have to read the previous books.

Fall Into Place is really two books in one. And we finally get to see what happens to Anthony {Saint & Jeanette’s son} and Samuel & Mary {Carter & Layla ‘Cherry’s twins}. There is no cheating here, there is only love and caring feelings. Told in Dual POV for both stories.

Like I said many times before, I love Alexa Riley’s books. I get everything I am expecting to get, nothing more, nothing less. Alexa remains true to herself and she always creates loyal main character, who are not prone to cheating on their loved ones.

First, here you have the series order:
Taking the Fall: Vol 1
Taking the Fall: Vol 2
Taking the Fall: Vol 3
Taking the Fall: Vol 4
Fall into Place
Taking the Fall Complete Series


The first story is about the son of Saint & Jeanette – Anthony – and the daughter of Carter & Layla ‘Cherry’ – Mary – who have been together as long as they remember. They wanted nothing more than to be together. Anthony and Mary are completely devoted to one another. Anthony and Mary keep their relationship under wraps in fear of her parents’ reaction. And because of their secrecy, Anthony refuses to lose his and Mary’s virginity to each other, unless she accepts to marry him.

“It’s not luck, princess. It’s fate. You were born for me, and I was born for you.”

Mary is getting impatient with Anthony’s patience between the sheets, but Anthony really close to losing control, and he’s getting restless with Mary’s contentment with their secret relationship. So the first story in Fall Into Place, is really about how they get married, tell the parents and have sex for the first time.

“I want to fuck her in every position possible, and then I want to create new ones just for us.”

Very exciting from the start, the scenes didn’t seem too fast though it was. It was an interesting story, It was a page turner. I liked Anthony and Mary’s relationship; how they were born and raised together, and since forever they’ve been in love, as well as truly devoted to one another, which is heart-warming, adorable, swoon-worthy and sweet. It was a very satisfying story, and very worth it.


The second story is about Mary’s twin – Samuel – and the daughter of Viktor {who was mentioned in the previous books in the Taking The Fall Series} – Nika. The moment he sees the WANTED picture of Nika, he’s attracted, captivated and instantly possessive of her. The feelings he has for her are something he never felt before. He doesn’t know why, but he will do everything to find out. He knows that there is something pulling him in her direction.
Samuel has always been single and has never been the type to sleep around, his father told him how he wished he had waited for his wife and been able to share that experience with her, so that’s what Samuel’s waiting on. He was waiting for the right ‘one’.

“I said I’d never done it before. I didn’t say I’ve never watched porn. A lot of porn. And maybe a few instructional YouTube videos.” She blushes and covers her face with her hands. “I don’t want to know.” I hear the shy smile in her words as she tries to close her legs. Pushing them back open, I kiss the top of her pussy, feeling the softness against my lips. “I just wanted to be a good husband.”

So when he tracks Nika down and locks her pretty wrists with handcuffs, it isn’t about the one-million-dollar bounty. It’s because he wants her for himself, to make her in his in ever way. He knows that she is the one for him. He just needs to show her that. NIka feels the same connection between them two. So it won’t be hard for him to win her over {it’s actually very hard for him. pun intended xoxo}

“He pulls me into his arms, taking my mouth in a hard kiss. I bite his lip, but he just moans and holds me tighter…”

The story was just as exciting as the first one, fast paced, exciting and a page turner though I think the first story was just a tad bit longer. Samuel and Nika’s relationship might’ve had a wham-bam-thank-you-maam, but their story was deeply steamy, rough and hard, hot and heavy, but also sweet and sensual. It was budding and blooming relationship between Samuel and Nika—and all that follows their instant connection.

“It’s like she’s sucking the life out of me, and if this is how I die, I’m totally okay to go.”

Overall, Alexa Riley entertains her readers with another virgin insta-love/lust romance. A smutty HEA that will satisfy any readers who needs a quick hot erotic read. This is a book that gave me 100% satisfaction and a bit sadness at the same time because it’s an ultimate conclusion to my all time favorite series Taking The Fall. However , I am looking forward to reading Alexa Riley’s next books. She is one of my most favorite erotic romance authors. She’s not number one in this genre for nothing. Highly recommended to everyone who wants a quick smutty read.

I’m Alexa Riley! Mom, wife, and business woman by day and smut writer by night. I specialize in the Dirty Date Night reading. I wrote my first book, Owning Her Innocence, because well, I just couldn’t find any daddy books to my liking. So I sat down and just started writing, bringing the fantasies I find myself often dancing to in the dark of night to life, one page at a time.

Alexa Riley is my alter ego. I can’t let the other soccer moms know what I’m up to or the guys at work for that matter. Little do they know that they’ve got nothing on my dirty talk.

I’m here to give you a quick fix of filthy dirty smut. Got a few hours to kill? Then I’m what you’re looking for.
