Amazon | B&N | iBookstore | BAM | Bookish | Other


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…

And don’t forget the rest of the Ten Tiny Breaths Series…

And Don’t forget to Preorder…

4.5 Star Review

I really love this series by K.A. Tucker. Five Ways To Fall is the Fourth Book in the series and focuses on Ben. I love all the characters in this series and I love how we get to catch up with some of them throughout each book.

Reese MacKay is a sharped-tongued girl who knows all about making bad choices as she has made plenty of them in her young life. When her impulsive, short-lived marriage ends in heartbreak, she decides to move to Miami to live with her step-dad and step-brother. She goes to college and gets a job at her step-dad's law firm. She goes on a trip to Cancun with two of her best friends to celebrate her 21st birthday. Her friends encourage her to get over her ex who cheated on her months ago by finding a guy to spend the night with. She runs into a really hot guy and after drinking way too much alcohol she decides to go to his room with him. Things start to heat up and Reese ends up throwing up all over the guy's shirt. She stays in the bathroom until he passes out and then she leaves without another word.

Ben Morris' dream was to become a professional football player, but a blown knee quickly crushes his dream. Luckily, he is a pretty smart guy and ends up graduating from law school. To celebrate his graduation, him and some friends decide to go to Cancun to celebrate. He is quite the ladies' man and ends up picking up a different girl every night. On his last night there he meets a hot chick who he ends up taking to his room for the night. He hopes to get lucky with her but she ends up getting sick all over him and then disappears in the middle of the night,

A few months later Ben gets a job at his friend Mason's dad's law firm. He is quite surprised when he finds out the girl who threw up on him in Cancun is his friend's step-sister who also works at the law firm. They become quick friends and love to flirt with each other. Reese is not interested in a relationship as she is still hung up on he ex and Ben loves women too much to settle down with just one. Reese is afraid of ending up like her mother who is on her fourth marriage and still unhappy.  Ben only sees love and marriage as a miserable life sentence because of the way his dad treated his mom. Will they ever be able to make a relationship work with all the baggage from their pasts?

"She just...fits with me. So perfectly."

"And I don't see how I could ever get sick of waking up next to her in the morning, or pulling all her clothes off at night, because I haven't yet. It's the exact opposite, actually. I just want her more. She's everything I never knew I wanted. She's everything I never knew I could have."

I really enjoyed the connection between all the characters. I loved the witty banter between Reese and Ben. I loved the relationship Ben had with his Mama. The ending was a little rushed and I would have liked more of a glimpse into the future of Ben and Reese's relationship. I hope we will get to read more about them in future books. This is a must read series by K.A, Tucker and I can't wait to see what she is working on next.

Elle says…


Five Ways to Fall is the fourth and final installment in K.A. Tucker’s Ten Tiny Breaths Series, and is every bit as phenomenal as the first three books. I cannot put in to words how absolutely breathtaking this story is. It is truly a complete package that will have you feeling a myriad of emotions right alongside the characters. I was giddy to get my hands on this novel. At the same time I was heartbroken knowing that this would close out the series that I’ve fallen in love with.

Reese MacKay is hands down one of my favorite book heroines. I love it when the female leads are sassy and bold. Reese is all of that and so much more. Of course, she has her share of baggage that she’s been burdened with since childhood. Those hardships have turned her into a witty, outspoken firecracker that won me over in the prologue.

Ben Morris is equally as enjoyable. Like Reese, his arsenal is loaded with sarcasm and he knows how to charm the pants right off a gal. Ben is also saddled with demons from the past. Despite his best efforts to escape his guilt and regret, he is still haunted by those unforgettable events.

I loved everything about this story. The characters had electric chemistry that ignited the pages with passion and romance but also humor and playful moments. Chapter after chapter I experienced a roller coaster of emotions. K.A. Tucker absolutely destroyed my heart at times only to piece it back together with the promise of redemption and hope. I smiled at the downright quirky situations Reese often found herself in but wanted to shake some sense into her stubborn self. Regardless of what I was feeling, both good and bad, I could not put this book down.

Five Ways to Fall is stunning and will have you hypnotized from start to finish. This novel can be read as a stand alone even though it is a part of K.A. Tucker’s Ten Tiny Breath Series. However, each of these stories is so undeniably perfect I urge you to indulge in each one. The Ten Tiny Breaths Series by K.A. Tucker has become one of my all-time favorite series and they are definite must reads so one click them now!
