 Title: Five Ways to Fall
Author: K.A. Tucker
Release: June 24, 2014 by Atria


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…

My Review
5 Stars *****

Wow this installment in the Ten Tiny Breaths Series was a stunner. I absolutely loved Ben & Reese's ride. I will say it was an unexpected one. Let me explain...

When I heard Ben was getting his own book I was thrilled. Ecstatic! I mean he was the handsome, mischievous, witty, devil we had grown to love in the past books right? I expected it to be a quick, sexy read. He loved woman, he loved strippers and he loved a good time. I had no expectation of the depth Ms. Tucker was going to be able to pull from our Ben. We get a glimpse into his life, his family and the responsibility and guilt that he shoulders. There is way more to our sexy bouncer than meets the eye.

We start the story with him in Mexico celebrating. He finished law school and gave his notice at Penny's. He's looking for a good time and he stumbles upon a purple haired vixen that seems to fit the bill.  Reese is in mourning. Reeling from the break up of her marriage. She was very much in love with her husband and she was blindsided when she literally caught him in the act of cheating. Her friends hauled her to Mexico to get her under someone new to try and snap her out of the funk she has been living in. When Ben and Reese collide for a night of no-strings sex hilarity ensues. So when they end up face to face at Ben's new law firm Reese is mortified and Ben is amused. They fall into a comfortable pattern of banter and attraction and I enjoyed every moment of watching their relationship unfold. Due to both their hang ups and the strict no-fraternizing policy at the office they fight to keep themselves under control. Can they? Do they want to? Can Ben give up his hard fast no commitment rules to let Reese in? Can Reese let go of the past and start new?

This book just worked for me. I enjoyed the entire cast of characters. All the stories pooled together and woven to perfection. I dare say this was my favorite in the series (forgive me Kacey & Trent). I highly recommend you all one-clicking this one.
