Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.

Armentrout's Wait For You series is probably my favourite New Adult series, so as soon as Fall With Me appeared on my kindle I just had to start it. This series is completely addictive.

Fall With Me follows Roxy and Reece who we met in Stay With Me. Roxy has been in love with Reece since she was 15, but after an awkward encounter eleven months ago that left Roxy embarrassed, she's been going out of her way to avoid him. Roxy's best fried is in long term care after becoming a victim of a hate crime a few years ago. Reece informs Roxy that the person responsible for his condition has been released from prison and wants to make amends for what he did. But when Roxy starts receiving frightening messages, she suspects that this guy is the one doing it. But Reece is't convinced. Reece will do anything to protect Roxy and he'll do anything to fix their relationship.

While Roxy and Reece aren't my favourite couple of the series (I doubt Cam and Avery will ever be kicked off that pedestal) they were still fantastic together. Roxy is spunky, hilarious and quirky. She's always wearing a t-shirt with a hilarious slogan or saying on it and she totally knows how to handle herself. But Roxy is carrying around a lot of guilt about what happened to her best friend. She thinks it was her fault and she's basically trying to live his life for him and putting herself under a lot of stress. Reece is an extremely protective and caring guy. He would do anything for Roxy. But Reece is dealing with his own troubles. He's haunted by something he had to do on the job to protect himself, his partner and other people. He's still struggling with his decision.

Roxy and Reece have a lot to figure out before they can fully commit to each other. They each have their own baggage that they need to deal with and they need to try to not let it interfere with their relationship. On top of all of that, Roxy is also dealing with some psycho who has been breaking into her house, moving things around and taking pictures of her while she's sleeping. I kind of figured out who it was pretty early since there was a huge clue that Roxy completely forgot about and didn't mention to anyone. But I was still intrigued to know why this person was going after Roxy. And on top of that, the guy responsible for her best friends condition is trying to make amends, and Roxy doesn't want to hear it. She doesn't know if she can ever start to forgive him because she can't forgive herself.

I loved that there were so many re-appearances of the old characters! Cam, Avery, Calla, Jax, Jace, Tess and even Brit and Ollie all made an appearance! Avery, Calla and Tess are really close with Roxy and I adored all the girl bonding. And just getting to see them all together again was amazing. But I'm pretty sure there's something going on with Cam and Avery due to what happened with Avery at the barbeque, and I really hope I'm right about it because it would be totally awesome! I also really loved getting to see more of Katie and Nick. Katie is hilarious and I adore her quirky personality. She doesn't care what people think of her and I love her psychic abilities. Nick is hilarious, sweet and protective. He was there for Roxy when she needed him and I am super excited for his book!

Overall, Fall With Me was another fantastic installment in the Wait For You series. I'm loving this series more every time a new book is released and I adore all of the characters. I'm super excited for Forever With You because I can't wait to read about Nick and Steph! And I can't wait to see all of my favourite characters again.


  1. I still haven't started this series and I think I ought to get to it at some point, since everything JLA that I've read I've liked!
    Great review Samantha!

    1. It's such a brilliant series, Pili! There's only been on JLA book I haven't like - and I pretend Cursed never existed - so I'm pretty sure you'll love this series too :)

  2. And now you know you are right about Cam and Avery. And just think, in September will get to attend their wedding!

    1. I know! I'm so glad I was right about it! Fingers crossed! :D
