My life just went South…
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long it took my life to flip upside down.
Wake up in bed alone after the best night of my life? Check.
Get fired instead of the promised promotion? Check.
Wealthy parents cut me off when I refuse to follow their path for my life? Check.
Now I’m in Cricket Creek, SC—a place where no New Yorker belongs—disowned and broke, with a new job that I can’t mess up. Oh yeah, and staring at my one-night stand, who happens to be the complete opposite of my type.
Southern.
Cocky.
Bartender.
Noah Hunter never should have made it back to my apartment in NYC, and I definitely shouldn’t be in his small town. But fate had another plan. Or a horrible sense of humor.
Who knew Mr. Wrong could feel so right…

Review:

No Falling Allowed was a pretty enjoyable read.  It was cute and kind of playful.  I found it be low on the angst scale with no heavy drama.  Grace is a socialite who is trying to break free from her tycoon father’s shadow and build a career of her own.  Noah is a small-town restaurant owner shouldering heavy guilt and raising his little brother.

I loved the small town feel – the meddling, nosy neighbors and everyone knowing everyone’s business.  And I found Jonah adorable.  I, however, really had a hard time connecting with both of the main characters.  Although at times I found Grace relatable, I often found her a bit on the spoiled side even though she was working and wanted her own career.  Noah, I was able to connect with more but I wanted to know more about why he was carrying so much guilt.  I felt the story about his parents’ death was brushed over and under rather quickly.

Overall, though, it was a fun and easy read.  A great book when you need to relax after a long day if you need something sweet. - Peace and Love, Buxom J


No Falling Allowed kept me highly entertained and reading from start to finish. Noah is a small town bartender who makes a trip to New York to help and visit some of his many cousins. Whenever he attends an event, he runs into Grace, a millionaire socialite. However, right after things get heated Noah has to take off but Grace cant seem to get him out of her head! 

I fell for Noah, quickly. I loved his carefree attitude whenever it came to his business and friends but I fell harder for his responsibility and the way he took care of his little brother Jonah. Grace was a little harder for me to get attached to but it did happen eventually. I really enjoyed the building of these two characters relationships, even if I felt the end was thrown together quickly. 

No Falling Allowed was a great summer read. I really enjoyed the low drama and little angst of this book. There were a few little things that got under my skin but I think over all it was an awesome book and I recommend you read it! - Daddy L



Excerpt

“Shit.”

Scarlett followed my gaze and bit back a laugh. “Damn, that’s her? She’s pretty. Like, supermodel pretty.”

“I know.”

“You know?” She peered over at me, but I refused to meet her eyes. “That’s the first time I’ve ever heard you give anybody a semblance of a compliment. How well do you know her?”

I shrugged, my thoughts drifting back to Grace’s legs wrapped around my waist, my lips on her neck. “We met when I was in New York.”

“And…?”

“And that’s it.”

“It doesn’t look like that’s it. Maybe I should just go ask her.” Scarlett started toward Grace, and I all but tripped over myself to stop her. She grinned knowingly. “You like her.”

“What? No, I don’t.” I scratched my jaw, then went to work on the next table.

“All right, so why aren’t you seating them? Lindy’s a friend, even if she’s probably still in love with you.”

“Good God, do you ever shut up?”

“I will. As soon as you go seat them.”

“What exactly do I pay you for if I’ve got to seat the guests and scrub the tables?”

Scarlett beamed back. “My charm.”

“I’d like a refund, thanks.”

“You’re seriously refusing to go seat them, aren’t you?”

I sighed heavily and set down the dish bin I’d been carrying. “Clean the rest of these tables.” Then I walked toward the door, each step making me feel both enthralled and nauseous. I needed this girl out of my head before the whole town figured out how gone I was over her.

“Hey. Two?” I asked, my eyes on Lindy, before jumping to Grace, and damn. Her green eyes pierced through me, and all logical thought went out the window. “How was your night?” I asked, because clearly I was an idiot who couldn’t control himself anymore.

“Good.” She fidgeted. “Yours?”

“Same.”

“I saw you outside this morning. Nice Jeep.”

My eyes lifted back to hers from where they’d drifted to the floor like it could somehow save me from this conversation. “I saw you, too.” She tilted her head a little and bit her bottom lip, drawing me there. Walk away, man. Please, for the love of God, walk away. But I couldn’t. That invisible force between us, the one that had drawn me to her that night in New York, now wrapped around me, locking me to the spot—locking me to her.

No kissing. No touching. And definitely no falling in love...
Armed with her besties, an embarrassing number of shots, and her list of 10 Wild Things To Do Before Adulthood, recent grad Cameron Lawson is partying it up before she starts her dream job at New York's biggest ad agency. Her last task? Hook up with a random guy. And while it's so not her style, the super-sexy guy sitting next to her is definitely game. No names. No details. At least, that was the plan. On her first day of work, Cameron discovers her hook-up is none other than Aidan Truitt—her new boss's boss. Talk about failing the “no fraternizing with coworkers” policy on an epic level. Especially when Aidan makes it clear their one night was only the beginning. Falling for him could cost her everything, but sometimes the only way to get what you want is by breaking a few rules...
