EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Review: Daring to Fall by T.J. Kline
Daring to Fall
Hidden Falls #2
T. J. Kline
Ben McQuaid has an obligation as a local fireman to protect the community, even from a well-meaning wildlife veterinarian who’s in way over her head. But, it’s becoming hard to keep his loyalty to the town and his desire for the pretty vet separate. As Ben and Emma become caught in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, their feelings for each other are growing.
Will they let duty drive them apart or will they dare to fall?
Review: 4 1/2 Stars
Ben McQuaid is a fireman in the small town of Hidden Valley, a man who wears his heart on his sleeve, which he has had broken many times. But that hasn’t stopped him from rescuing damsel in distress & Emma Jordan is his next damsel in distress. Emma Jordan is a veterinarian and returns home after her father’s death to run an animal sanctuary that was his legacy.
Ben and Emma met after Ben rescues a baby bobcat from a tree and delivers him back to the sanctuary, but when he arrives at the sanctuary, he finds out the bobcat didn’t escape from there. That is one of the few occurrences that is happening to the sanctuary, after Emma returns to take over, that is stirring the the town in an uproar trying to get the sanctuary shut down saying she is incompetent to run it.
After another occurrence happens at the animal sanctuary Ben’s knight in shining armor kicks in, but Emma will not have any of it. Emma doesn’t get close to anyone or do relationships due to her job and the animal sanctuary, she has seen what the animal sanctuary did to her father and mother’s relationship and what her career did to her one and only relationship. But will Ben wear her down.
Daring to Fall was such a joy to read. it had a great romance, laughs, suspense, and a tear at the end, everything this girl loves in a her romance books. I loved the chemistry between Emma and Ben, hot one minute cold the next, Emma made Ben work for it, the ending I had a tear or two. Ben and his brother Andrew had me laughing at the insults they threw at each other. There was one part of the book I wish I could go in it and strangle Andrew, but he did redeem himself though. If you are looking for a weekend romance read with a little suspense, a few laughs and a tear or two I recommend you pick up a copy of Daring to Fall.
I received a free copy for my honest review!
