What are you in for? 

Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.

Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.

If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…

History does a funny thing of repeating itself. . .

She’s 21 and she’s in Cancun. Cancun is really where it all starts. One too many (okay, let’s be honest here. She probably should have stopped at one) margaritas down the hatch and a falling off the chair incident pretty much led to meeting a man who’d have her heart and soul in a knotted heart by the end of the novel. Oh, if only things were really that easy. Of course, then we wouldn’t have had such a seriously epic book. Seriously. Epic. What makes this book epic, might you ask? Weeellllll, the writing for one, is simply fantastic. It transports you into the book. (10 points to you!)

In FIVE WAYS TO FALL, Reese MacKay got married in six weeks and was cheated on her entire marriage. Although you’re gonna find this whole quick to pull the trigger marriage incredible stupid (I wanted to slap her) I did understand that she wanted to feel loved. Something that was rare in her child, and adulthood. Anyway, that guy? Yeah, he’s an idiot and I hate him. Noooow Ben? Oh sweet lord. . . That boy. Reese is messed up. She’s vengeful, can’t let things go and she’s so freaking in denial that I just wanted to slam her face into chocolate pecan pie that she’s so very fond of. But besides that, she’s smart as a whip and she’s not afraid to be herself. And that’s awesome. Purple hair and all.

Onto Ben. Ooooh Ben. *stares at the Kindle starry-eyed* *wipes drool off face* This boy, although freaking gorgeous, funny and oh so incredibly sweet, he’s been through hell. His home life hasn’t been the easiest to say the least. And it does affect him. It does. He’s afraid of love and marriage and the whole nine yards because of it. He sleeps with anything that has legs.  But with each other, it’s like they’ve found the best part of themselves. I mean not at first. It’s an evolution. Like everything is. But is a freaking gorgeous evolution, to say the least.

And it’s one that you should definitely not miss.

The story, in total, was the perfect pace, length. The character development was stellar and I just love it. The reason it’s only 3.5-4 Stars? There were moments where Reese seriously got on my nerves. Seriously got on my nerves.

Hehehe. Anyways. Y’all need this. No questions asked.

 You know you’re a pig, right?”…“Yeah, but I’m your pig tonight.”

 Confession time. This is my first book by K. A. Tucker. How are the others?? Are they just as amazing?!
