Falling In concludes Alexa Riley’s series novella-length series Taking the Fall. I’ve been quite enjoying the journey, that is when I could ignore the amount of cheesiness and caveman-ish behavior from the lead male characters. But to be fair, there were some pretty good, hot scenes throughout that kept me hooked and going for the next.
The first 3 volumes were about one couple, Carter and Layla, who had a history together. Carter spent 8 yrs. in jail but he’d been Layla’s bodyguard before that, hired by her crime lord of a father. Layla was pretty sheltered and largely unloved; something that shadows her later years as well. Yes, her needs were taken care of but none of her parents, it seemed, cared about her much. Until she met Carter, she didn’t know the meaning of love or affection at all.
