Fall with Me (Wait for You #4) by J. Lynn: Release Day Launch w/ Excerpt & Giveaway


Blurb:

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.

Excerpt:

Someone—was it Melvin?—catcalled as Reece led me down the hall, and my cheeks flushed. “Okay, heman, I can walk all by my little self.”

He cast a look over his shoulder at me as he opened the office door. “I’m sure you can.”

Then he pulled me inside.

My gaze flipped to the roses—the roses!—but before I could say a word, he closed the door and my back was pressed against it, his hands planted on either side of my head and his face right in mine. Like right there, within kissing distance.

Wow.

“So, I was at my father’s place in New Jersey most of the day, and you know, he lives out near the Pine Barrens, so service is shit.”

I nodded even though I really wasn’t processing what he was saying as I was too busy staring at his mouth. Those lips, fuller on the bottom, drove me to distraction.

“I pull out of his driveway and I have all these messages from Dennis,” he continued, and I finally caught on to what he was talking about. “I honestly thought he was messing with me at first.”

I cringed. “He . . . um, he wasn’t.”

He shot me a bland look. “That much I figured out.” His hands slid on the door, stopping just shy of touching my shoulders. “What did he do to you?”

“What?” I blinked.

“What did that bastard do to make you throw a book through his windshield?”

Oh. Oh. My heart was now wiggling along with my stomach. “He really didn’t do anything. I just lost my cool. He wanted to talk to me, and I didn’t want to talk to him.”

“You don’t have to talk to him.”

“That’s what Dennis said, but I shouldn’t have damaged his car.”

A muscle flexed along his right jaw. “That’s true.” He shook his head. “Damn, Roxy, can’t say I’m surprised.”

My brows flew up. “You’re not?”

He laughed under his breath. “Babe, you’ve always had a hell of a temper on you.”

Ah, that was kind of true. “Is that a good thing or a bad thing?”

Reece cocked his head to the side. “A sexy thing, but vandalism and destruction of property doesn’t look good on you, sweets.”

“No. It doesn’t match my manicure.” I raised my hands, flashing him the blue nails.

He laughed again and then he sobered up, just like that. Cop Face was on, and yeah . . . the low coiling in my stomach told me I found Cop Face arousing. “You’re lucky. He could’ve pressed charges, and this conversation would be going in a whole different direction.”

My own half smile slipped off my face. “I know. It’s . . . I was just with Charlie, and he’s . . .” Unable to continue, I forced a casual shrug I didn’t feel. “What are you going to do with me?”

His lips parted as his chest rose with a deep breath, then his gaze dropped to my mouth, and his expression tightened. He looked . . . he looked hungry. “I have lots of ideas.”

  1. I love the feeling of love that already exist between two people (in second chance romance) and "watching" it grow even more. First love... well there are too many! I love the butterfly feeling the most though. Yes books give me butterflies. :)

  2. I love the idea of having a forever love. That no matter what happens or how much time passes, that love is still there.

  3. I like both, but I like first love better because of all the silly insecurities and doubts of the characters, and sometimes the awkward and embarrassing things they do when faced with their insecurities. Second chance is nice, if there's just an old misunderstanding or, when young, a couple gets separated by distance but later reunites. Thanks!

  5. I love watching first love develop, and second chances are simply a huge bonus. If somehow you had missed your shot, but gained it later I think that's truly amazing.

  10. I love second chance stories because I think it's challenging to make your first relationship last and it's wonderful to think that you could have another shot at it after you grow up a bit.

  13. I love first love and second chance because it gives me the feels :) Sometimes real life is tough and to escape into a story that you know will end with a HEA and getting a second change make it seem a little less tough.

  14. I love the emotional roller coaster you go through with 1st and 2nd love chances.

  15. There is nothing quite like that innocence of first love. But sometimes in love you need a second chance, especially if you were young. So I love them both.

  16. There is something about the connection with a first love and part of love is giving that person a second chance when deserved.

  18. I love both. I experienced first love. I have been with my husband since I was 18. We met in Texas where we were both stationed in the Army. We have been together 20 years. I also enjoy second chance stories because I love a happy ending.
