Synopsis: Kasey Lane is having a bad week.
Her idea of success never involved losing her job, man, and apartment in 24-hours. Now, with nowhere to go and no way to pay for it anyway, Kasey decides it’s time for a fresh start, which means a new apartment, a new career, and…no men.
But as a magnet for ridiculousness and absurd brushes with the law, her start goes from fresh to stale in record time. It doesn’t help that Mr. Wrong keeps showing up during her adventures gone awry and taking over. Now, as Kasey plans her way to independence she has to decide if the only path to success is going it alone...or if maybe a partner in crime can make the journey sweeter.
My Review: 5 of 5 stars
Don't you just love it when you take a chance on a new author and it turns out to be one of the best experiences ever? Well, that's what happened to me with this book and this author. Caitie Quinn is definitely now going to be one of my new go-to authors.
This book was awesome! Quinn's writing style is witty, laugh-out-loud funny, sarcastic, snarky, and smart all at the same time. The female MC, Kasey Lane, had me laughing throughout the entire story. She is the lovable klutz/clueless girl that we all can identify with (and if you can't then you know someone like her). She keeps getting herself into ridiculous situations and then has to be rescued by the handsome and bossy cop, Max. The whole book was just so great that I can't decide if my favorite thing was the hilarious scenarios that Quinn crafted for Kasey and Max, Kasey's irreverent inner dialogue, or the witty banter/arguing that took place between Max and Kasey the entire book. It was all great!
I do have to state that I read a review before I read this book that said that this was a good book but that it didn't have any sex scenes in it between the two main characters so they couldn't really enjoy the book. And I have to say that is crazy! A good book, is a good book, is a good book! I am much like the mentioned reviewer - I usually prefer a good dose of kink in any romance book I read. But, in this case it did not detract from the story at all. I might have wished to peek into the bedroom a time or two, but I was too caught up enjoying the actual verbal interaction and shenanigans of the characters to miss it all that much.
Another one of my favorite qualities of this book was the amazing cast of supporting characters. This may be the 2nd book in this series, but it can be read as a standalone. I definitely got the sense that there was a back story with the group of characters, but it didn't detract from the book at all. I can't wait to go and read the rest of the books in this series.
Final opinion: Worth the Fall is worth the read!
