So I picked this up as a freebie and started reading after I was extremely disappointed in a book I wanted to have an all-in alpha male and sweet and innocent heroine. I had a bit of trepidation, hoping this would be good and I wasn't left icky again

NO DISAPPOINTMENT - it started and I was like, okay, good beginnings, then, wow super hot, then, confusion, super crazy hot, deep confusion and then, ummm, part 2 please

So that is why I ended up getting parts 2 and 3 and binge reading all in one night, well past my bedtime, and causing me to sleep well past noon on my day off when I needed to get things done

No regrets though, this was super sweet, super hot and super perfect!!

Alexa Riley wrote another amazing book. It was fast paced and intense. I'm excited to see how the story plays out. Can't wait for the next three parts.

HASH(0x9ec108a0) out of 5 stars 4 Stars! April 9 2015
By Lina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This was such an enjoyable read. I consumed it al in one sitting!

Layla is a young woman who has experienced betrayal. After realizing that the man she has feelings for doesn't want her, she escapes her father's tight clutches and starts anew. But she never forgets the tall, dark and handsome bodyguard of hers, Carter. Pushing the disappearence of her mother and her father's coldness behind her, she begins a new life.

Carter has spent years in prison and when he is finally free. he goes after what he really wants and craves; Layla. After pushing her away years ago, he realizes it is finally time to go after his heart's desire.

Layla doesn't expect to see Carter ever again, so when he shows up uninvited into her new life, time freezes. Her feelings come back in full force and she knows she cannot deny him anything. But will he fix her or break her all over again? Will he stay or leave? Will he protect her from the past that's still haunting her or will he abandon her when she needs him the most?

I loved the writing. The story flowed smoothy and the insta-love didn't really bother me because the storyline was developing quickly. Carter is one of those dark heroes who simply takes what he wants without apologizing for it. He is dark and possessive and Layla's innocence draws him in. Layla is the young woman who cannot resist him. Their chemistry is explosive and their attraction pulsates throughout the book. Their scenes will leave you breathless.

My only complaint is that the book ended on a terrible cliffhanger!!!! Why??? I want the next book now!

HASH(0x9ec10bd0) out of 5 stars Super Alpha Male = Super Saucy Read. April 15 2015
By TammyVoiced - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I started reading this and thought, great a virgin, but I soon got over that really quickly.

Why? Cause it actually fit into the story.

Layla is in love and doesn't know if it is returned. She takes a chance and is shot down but not for the reasons she thinks. She runs. Finding a new life.

Carter was to protect her and nothing else but along the way he fell. He protected her so much so he landed in jail. That of course didn't stop him from keeping an eye on his Cherry.

As Layla start her new life she has a BFF that all of us want and need.
A simple girl's night out turns into a life alternating change.

You will just have to read this 4-part series to find out.

Carter is now on my alpha-boyfriend list. You will want him on yours too.

Layla will become the girl you are routing for.

HASH(0x9ec3e108) out of 5 stars Wow, true love at it's finest April 12 2015
By Johnnie-Marie Howard - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is one story that will blow your mind and keep you hooked, plus it's a quick 2 person POV story it only took me 1 whole day to read this cover to cover in fact it only took me a few hours to fall for it. As fast as I was flipping the pages the characters were coming alive more and more and the story was being told in a slow pace but it was enough to make you want Vol 2 that's for sure. MUST READ!!!! WOW, doesn't even being to cover it for me.

HASH(0x9ec3e120) out of 5 stars Really good first installment, I am looking forward to more. Alexa Riley never disappoints! April 14 2015
By Casey M. Britton - Published on

Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

Taking the Fall is a four part serial by Alexa Riley. Though each part does end with a cliffhanger, the reader knows that Carter and Layla are going to be together going in. I have to say that is what convinced me to read this one. While I have really liked everything I have read by Alexa Riley, I am over serials. They frustrate me and I tend to lose track of release dates and then completely forget the story by the time that the next part comes out. But with this one, I knew that I was going to feel better going in and that is what made me want to read it.

Layla O'Leary has tried for years to remember what happened one night. When she goes to the one man that could answer everything, he turns her away. She vows to never return and that everyone from her past life will never hear from her again. Four years later, she lives somewhere else and has a new identity. But Carter has waited eight years to finally claim her, and he will do whatever it takes to show her that she is his.

I really liked Carter. I felt bad for him seeing how much he wanted Layla and yet there were so many obstacles standing in his way. He was sexy and alpha, and I loved how possessive he was of Layla. She was his, and he would make sure that everyone knew it. But he also had a lot that he wasn't telling her, and I felt like things would have been so much easier if he would have just filled her in on some and talked to her. Layla was strong and determined, yet she could never fully move on and forget Carter. I felt bad for her as well, and I don't know what I would have done had I been in her situation. It was clear that they both had feelings for one another, but I really just wanted them to talk to one another and have better communication between them. I didn't see why Carter didn't talk to her about what he had to do, even if he couldn't give her any details. He should have been able to at least let her know what was ahead of them. The one thing that was never a problem though was how hot these two were together! They were perfect for one another when it came to their desires and they just clicked on that level.

Overall, this was a good first installment. I like these two together and they were definitely on the same page when it came to the steamy stuff. I will be interested to see what happens next after where we left off in this part. Alexa Riley always brings the heat with her stories, and she writes some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. Though I love her stories, I always feel like I want more. Luckily this time, it feels like we are definitely going to get that since there are four parts instead of just one. If you are looking for something short and sexy, I definitely recommend giving any of her stories a try. Carter and Layla's story is one that I enjoyed so far, and I cannot wait to get more of.
