~*REVIEW BY VANESSA*~
I am HUGE fan of Wendy and her books so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. Taking the Fall is the second in the Dennison series; the first book in the series, Afraid to Fall, was great but this one is my favorite so far. Each book can be read as a standalone but to get a little back story on the characters, (plus because it is awesome) I would recommend reading the first book. Hunter is a doctor in the town’s hospital. He is constantly working long hours and when he’s not he is silently morning the loss of a relationship that could have been but wasn’t due to a big lie. Molly is the owner of Molly’s a restaurant that is a town favorite. Molly also works long hours running the restaurant while trying to deal with 15 and 8 year old daughters. She, just like Hunter, look forward to the days they can catch a glimpse of each other. After finally having enough of the silence, Hunter tries to befriend Molly and rekindle some kind of relationship with her and much to Molly’s surprise, can’t wait to rekindle that friendship if that’s all Hunter is willing to give her. When Molly and Hunter start to grow close, she looks to him for advice on her daughter bringing Hunter back to the past angering him and almost tearing apart the new friendship. After confronting Hunter on his problem, Molly finds out that all those years ago when Hunter chose her roommate over her, they were both being played and manipulated into thinking the worst of each other. With a second chance at love, these two are finding a way to make their relationship work. But with that work comes letting go of the past and these two are having a hard time in doing so. Read Taking the Fall to find out if these two get their HEA’s or if fate has something else in store.
~*ABOUT THE 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.
