After We Fall by Marquita Valentine

After winning raves for Take the Fall (“crackling with tension, intrigue, and romance”—Katy Evans) and When We Fall (“sexy, emotional, heartfelt”—Monica Murphy), Marquita Valentine ratchets up the tension as new beginnings lead to undeniable passion.

A tough cop with an even tougher past, Hunter Sloan has never let anyone stop him from getting what he wants—and he wants Evangeline Ambrose bad. With her gentle curves and raw vulnerability, Hunter’s beautiful, mysterious new neighbor awakens his protective side. Determined to do right by a woman who’s gone through hell and back, Hunter could be the one to take away the pain—so long as his own secrets don’t sink their relationship before it begins.

Having escaped an abusive marriage, Evangeline simply wants to start over in the small, quiet town of Forrestville. She’s also avoiding all contact with the opposite sex, because she just can’t trust her instincts when it comes to men—not even with the sinfully sexy cop next door. So why can’t she stop thinking about him? Hunter has darkness in his soul, and yet no one ever made her feel so safe. For all her best laid plans, Evangeline didn’t count on choices this hard—or temptation this hot.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Happy Sigh...another great book in this series. I absolutely loved this book, start to finish. There is a bit of angst, but nothing too bad, and there are a lot of past hurts to be dealt with on both sides, but Ms. Valentine wrote this story in such a way it sucked the reader in and made it impossible to put down.

Both characters tugged at my heart for their own reasons, and I fell in love with them both and cheered for their relationship to be able to handle what it needed to.

And the ending…Contended Sigh…excellent ending. Just perfect…and I'm going to guess it's the set up for the next book in the series, which I can't wait for!

I am really enjoying this series from Ms. Valentine. She has a very relaxed writing style, which can take a page or two for me to tune into, but then it is turn, turn, turn until I get to the end. Luckily I was on a long haul flight, so this was the perfect escapism.

A lovely thoughtful story, with some big issues dealt with in a sensitive manner, and with the help of a dog called Jake. The story is told from both Hunter and Evangeline's points of view, so that we can see just how words and actions play into the mix of feelings and denial. They clearly have chemistry and overcome some of the issues just because their bodies demand it of them. Saylor is a fun side character, as are Hunter's colleagues and friends. Overall a good read.
