Book Review: Taking the Fall by W. Ferraro


OUAA synopsis

Hunter Dennison has been an overachiever in all aspects of his life. He knows what he wants and goes after it, and he intends to follow suit in his love life with the young and beautiful Molly. His patience is at its last resolve as he waits for her to come of age, but finally the time has arrived, and he prepares to tell Molly how he feels. 

What he doesn’t know is that someone else has set their own selfish agenda into motion, wreaking havoc on Hunter’s intentions and his confidence in Molly’s character. 

Believing the vicious lies, Hunter veers off his planned path. He finds solace and comfort in another’s arms, never realizing that he leaves in his wake a devastated Molly. However, fate cannot be fooled. 

Now, twenty years later, they both have settled into their own lives in Clearwater Falls. Hunter intends to rectify the past by letting Molly know that she is the one he wants now, just as he had wanted then. 

Can passion all these years in the making overcome the weight of regret that they both carry? Or will the price of their previous mistakes leave an insurmountable divide in their chance at forever?

WARNING: Recommended for adult readers (18+) only. Mature themes, strong language, and sexual content.

Favorite Quotes:

“Molly, just remember, if being a mother was easy, men could do it.”

“So many emotions were rolled into this kiss, and he honestly couldn’t tell you if he meant it to be sweet, seductive, apologetic, mercy-filled, or a last resort.” 

“I love you Molly.  I’ve never known anything close to what I feel for you, and I never want to.  You are it for me.”
“Now that we are together, I vow to you that I will love you the way you deserve to be loved.”

My Review:

Those Dennison men are a hot mess, and I want me one!  Maybe if I am a good little cougar, Santa will bring me one of my very own next Christmas… I must say, Ms. Ferraro has a knack for writing the angst, which is not my favorite thing in the world, but I recognize her skill none the less.  Her stories are well-written and absorbing, and while they squeeze my heart and make me want to look away, I can’t put my kindle down.   I am glad each story in the series can stand-alone as I despise cliffhangers, yet I totally appreciate being able to revisit previous characters in subsequent stories.  I am curious to see which Dennison brother will be the focus of her next steamy tale, but I humbly beg – please, please, please…less anguish next time.  I freely confess that I gravitate to stories with more pleasure than torment, and more contented sighs than tears – just saying…

OUAA About Author

I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
