ARC Review: Hard to Fall by Marquita Valentine

Title: Hard to Fall

Author: Marquita Valentine


Wedding bells are ringing—and tempers are flaring—as the Take the Fall series continues in this sweet, sexy novel from the bestselling author of After We Fall (“This beautiful story kept me transfixed until the very end.”—Krista Lakes).

As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife. Hayden just isn’t ready for that sort of commitment . . . not with women like beautiful, curvy Saylor Dean—the naughty bridesmaid he recognizes the morning after his buddy’s wedding—tempting Hayden to stay single forever.

The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Everyone who knows me knows I love a good drunken marriage romance and as of right now Hard to Fall, the fourth book in Marquita Valentine's Take the Fall series is my top favorite! This love story was absolutely amazing. Saylor and Hayden's romance was everything I wanted it to be and so much more. The relationship was a little unbalanced at the beginning due to the fact that Saylor remembered what happened during their night together while Hayden didn't, but that didn't bother me as much because the way that everything progressed after that was so wonderful.

Aside from the romance, I also really enjoyed all the other drama revolving around both Hayden's and Saylor's families. The fact that I enjoyed the family drama in this story is really saying something since I usually really hate ridiculous family drama in romance, but here it really worked for me.

But back to the romance. This love story was fantastic. I was so invested in this romance that even though it has been some time since I have read this book I still can't stop thinking about these two and their absolutely swoon-worthy and heart-warming HEA.

Overall, I loved this book to pieces. It is only the second book I have read by this author, but because of how much I love this book Marquita Valentine is now on my auto-buy author list and I'm going to be recommending this book to all my romance reader friends.
