REVIEW: Five Ways to Fall (Ten Tiny Breaths #4) – K.A. Tucker

Released: June 24th, 2014

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…
"I think some foolish woman out there could maybe make you a blissful idiot one day."
Wow, no words could express how much I love this book. This is one of the best or possibly the best book from the series, and that’s saying something. K.A. Tucker wrote such a romantic and intense love story that will keep you hooked from beginning until the end with the witty comments, hot make out sessions and the undeniably strong chemistry between Ben and Reese.

My God, this book was utter perfection. No other words. I absolutely loved it and right now, I really can’t find anything wrong with it. I. LOVE. IT.

Reese’s character was just so fucking lovable. I loved how tough she was and how smart she was. You don’t see that many actual intelligent women these days in books. Sometimes, they’re smart yeah but Reese is manipulative and shrewd. I would never want to put myself on this woman’s warpath. Trust me.

When Reese falls into a desperate situation, she calls on her stepfather for help. In return, she has to agree to his conditions, which are to clean up her act and help out in his firm.

On the other hand, Ben has a lot of family issues to deal with and because of said family issues, he’s never really committed to a serious relationship, terrified of the damage it could cause (he doesn’t admit this of course because he’s all macho man). But Reese changed all that for him.

After a humiliating event for Reese with Ben, she was glad that he was merely a one-night stand. That is, until he finds Reese at the firm he was working at. The first thing he says? HA! It’ll make you laugh.

Of course, the two being so stubborn and with Reese just freshly out of a relationship with a douchewaffle who cheated on her, both were in no position to be in a real relationship. Thus, the struggle begins.

And I loved the quote I had on top. It’s so ironic that she ended up being the foolish woman. God bless her.

I love how weird their relationship was though and how casual they were with each other. They were always so comfortable around each other and would have this really easy thing going on. Loved it!
“Babe, the only way a wedding ring is landing on this finger of mine is if I’m in a coffin.”

“You may be in one by the end of tonight.”
Ah, that’s the Ben and Reese we all know and love.
