Sometimes you can’t change—and sometimes you just don’t want to. Discover Ben’s side of the story in this fourth novel by the beloved, top-selling indie author of Ten Tiny Breaths,One Tiny Lie, and Four Seconds to Lose.

Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she’s made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. So when her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides it’s time for a change. She moves to Miami with the intention of hitting reset on her irresponsible life, and she does quite well…aside from an epically humiliating one-night stand in Cancun with a hot blond bouncer named Ben. Thank God she can get on a plane and leave that mistake behind her.

Football scholarship and frat parties with hot chicks? Part of charmer Ben Morris’s plan. Blown knee that kills any hope of a professional football career? So not part of the plan. Luckily Ben has brains to go with his knockout looks and magnetism. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny’s Palace, he’s ready to lead a more mature life—until his first day of work, when he finds himself in the office of that crazy, hot chick he met in Cancun. The one he hasn’t stopped thinking about.
If Ben truly were a smart guy, he’d stay clear of Reese. She’s the boss’s stepdaughter and it’s been made very clear that office romances are grounds for dismissal. Plus, rumor has it she’s trouble. The only problem is, he likes trouble, especially when it’s so good-looking…

Don’t forget the rest of the Ten Tiny Breaths Series…

The Ten Tiny Breaths series has remained a favorite of mine ever since I read and adored the very first book. Each subsequent title has simply renewed my fondness for the characters and the world K.A. Tucker has created. Having been a favorite secondary character throughout the series, I'm stoked to see Ben become the focal point of his own in Five Ways To Fall.

Ben has remained a constant force throughout this series, the one devoted guy all the main characters could always rely on, either for his brute force or really, any thing. He's a player but when it comes to his friends, Ben is the guy everyone needs in their life. Reese is a strong-minded woman. She knows what she wants, readily admits her mistakes, has led an interesting life and has decided to now try things a different way. Being arrested (again) will do that to a person. When she encounters Ben in an Mexican bar while on vacation, the chemistry is palpable. 

What I really loved about Ben and Reese is just how flawed they are. So many times I read a story and the girl is so perfect it gets boring fast. Reese is far from it. She comes across as someone regular, someone scarred by her past, sometimes guarded, vulnerable, and I liked her. From the moment she sat down to eat that second piece of chocolate pecan pie, I was on her side. Ben comes into his own here. We learn so much more about him, whereas we merely touched the top layers in the first three books, here readers get to go below the surface. Ben brings on a major case of swoon.

K.A. Tucker has done it again. Five Ways To Fall made me stay up late reading, lost in Ben and Reese's love story, toes curling over the romance, and heart stolen by Ms. Tucker's latest irresistible couple. Loved it!
