4 1/2 Star Review

I have read all of Tamsyn’s books and I loved this one the most.  I have watched her grow into a wonderful author that can write new adult romance the sweet lovey dovey kind them write a contemporary romance with a bit of naughty to it.  Tamsyn and certainly showed me her growth with Destined to Fall and I am so very proud of her.  

Kyler is a sexy and sex on a stick professional man who took one look at Cassidy and knew he had to have her.  One major problem with that situation was that Cassidy was his new employee, however, he was okay with slightly bending the rules if that meant he got to bend her over his desk and take exactly what he wanted from her.   Working his way into Cassidy’s panties would not be an easy task for him though and he has his work cut out for him.

Cassidy is level headed and smart.  Driven to make her future better than her past she puts her career first and relationships at the bottom of her importance list.  Kyler is the new sexy boss who intrigues her but of course is off limits because well he is the boss.  Overtime Cassidy can’t deny the longing that bubbles inside her to have Kyler inside her.  Knowing it could cause destruction to her career she reigns those wants and needs up and focuses on being professional.

Overtime the electricity that runs through Kyler and Cassidy become stronger and erupts into something much more than just physical attraction.  Will Cassidy risk everything for a roll in the hay with Kyler knowing it would never amount to anything other than a good quick lay?  Will Kyler’s man whore ways continue on through Cassidy or will something much deeper and sound develop between them?

This read is not only sexy and hot, it was electrifying.  The steamy scenes are steamy, and the sweet scenes are sweet.  Kyler and Cassidy are hot apart and when the two come together they powerfully hot.  I found myself more times than not squeezing my thighs together and squirming in my seat.  Before starting this read I knew I was in store for a hot, fun, steamy, sexy novel and Tamsyn didn’t disappoint me. 

If you haven’t read any of Tamsyn’s books take the jump and dive into this one.  She created Destined to Fall and wanted this story to show she can be a bit naughty and she accomplished that.  So grab this one up because you will be destined to fall in love with it and Tamsyn.  I am so very proud of Tamsyn and what she has accomplished.  The sky is the limit for this author and she is proving that to me every day.  I can’t wait to see what she brings us next.  Congratulations Tamsyn for all that you have accomplished at such a young age, I know this is your dream and I want you to dream big.  Take chances with your work and go with it, you will surprise yourself.  Never settle for anything less than what you deserve and never stop reaching for the stars.  


4 Star Review

Wow! This book was fantastic. I found it thoroughly captivating and entertaining to read. It was well written and the author did a fantastic job with character development and the plot flowed nicely. The story was engrossing, and I have to say that I think I’m kinda jealous, I want my own Kyle. Considering Cassey’s rough start in life she wasn’t whiny or annoying, her personality was strong yet sweet. Her independence was admirable, but not to the point of idiocy. I have to say that it took me a bit to warm up to Kyle, but you could see great personal growth in his character as the book progressed. By the end I was rooting for him (even if I do think that there should have been a little bit more groveling on his part). It was easy to fall a little for his bad boy persona. This book wasn’t your typical girl falls for boss story (Thank God!). The coming together of two strong personalities was engaging, and the book was easy to read. While the plot was a little simple it wasn’t without it’s surprises. There was depth and viable emotion in this book. It had a great cast of supporting characters, and villains, some in unlikely places. It was like reading a story about a close family member, the plot never felt contrived or overdone. There were a few points were I think that the author could have gone into a bit more depth, but I still think that the book is worth every one of the 4 stars I’m giving it and I’d highly recommend it to anyone!
