Blog Tour: Alexa Riley's "Taking the Fall (#1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog is pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Alexa Riley's "Taking the Fall (#1)."

Amazon UK:


Layla O’Leary has had enough. For years she has been haunted by the night she can’t remember. When she learns the only man she's ever loved has betrayed her, she escapes and crafts a new identity. She's finally free...

Carter has waited eight years to claim his woman. Locking him up only fueled his obsession. The day he gets out he's coming for her. Taking the Fall was just the start. Now he'll stop at nothing to possess what's his.

Warning: this book contains a hero who grunts and growls his way through life, a heroine nicknamed Cherry looking to lose it, and instalove so fast and hard your panties might disintegrate. Note: not responsible for exploding panties.

Taking the Fall is a four part story. A new part will come out every two weeks. Please note the endings are NOT relationship cliffhangers. Layla is Carter's.

Review: Kirsty Lander:

I liked this book but I didn't love it. Parts of it were really good, but other parts felt very amateurish and almost childish. 

It's hard to really get your teeth stuck in to a book when it is so short and written as a serial type book, but I gave it a whirl and can't say I'm disappointed, just think that we could have done a little more story and a lot less sex.

The hero is obviously supposed to be an alpha male that we are supposed to find appealing, but for me he just sounded like a freaking neanderthal. He hasn't seen the heroine in over 8 years, for certain reasons I won't go in to because they will be spoiler-y, and the first time he sees her he practically mauls her like a damn dog. Not attracitve. At all.

And the heroine, she was just.. boring. A plain jane. Really nothing to write home about or excite me. In a nutshell, she could be one of millions of girls, she just didn't stand out.

I will carry on with the story, at least for the next book, but I'm not overly excited.

I rated "Taking the Fall" ❤️❤️❤️❤️


"I may not survive this, Cherry." I’m breathing hard, and I don’t know how to put what I feel into words.

She brings her hand up to my face and runs it along my jaw. She looks deeply into my eyes and for a moment, she has all the power. "I’m scared too, Carter."

I kiss between her breasts and rest my forehead there. Her hands rub the top of my head and down my shoulders. I look down at her cum-covered belly and rub what remains into her skin. Seeing my mark on her calms me.

I smile at her as I move farther down her body. I get to her panties and grip them roughly.

"Time to unwrap the gift you’ve been saving for me." With a slight tug, the panties are shredded. I toss them over my shoulder and look down at her pussy. She has a tiny patch of short red hair there that she’s kept trimmed. It’s so short and fine, she almost looks bare. It does incredible things to my cock to see her sweet virgin pussy so pure. Her pussy lips are pouty and swollen, and I can see her juices are already starting to run down her ass.

I shoulder her thighs apart, spreading her wide so I can fit and get comfortable. I plan on spending some time getting acquainted with my girl.

Layla makes a move to put her hand over her pussy and I push it out of the way. "Move your fucking hand, Cherry. Nobody ever told you not to get between a man and his meal?"

Giggling, she places her hand on my head. Fuck, I love that sound.

I rest my forehead at the top of her mound and put my face right up against her pussy. I don’t do anything at first. I just breathe in her scent. I’ve waited so long to be right where I’m at and I want to savor it.

"Carter, what are you doing?"

"I’m fucking worshiping your pussy, Cherry. Just lie there and enjoy it."

"Are you going to kiss me there?"

"Cherry. Goddamn it, do not rush me. I’ve waited years for this. If I want to lie here and smell your pussy all night I will. Hell, if I want to order a pizza and have my fucking dinner while I keep my nose on your cunt, that’s what will happen. Now shut up and let me have my moment."

"Oh God, Carter. I feel achy. Please lick it."

"Fine, but only because I want to," I say, knowing that I will actually give her anything she asks for. I hope she doesn't catch on to how her pleas could have me eating out of her hand.

About the Author:

I’m Alexa Riley! Mom, wife, and business woman by day and smut writer by night. I specialize in the Dirty Date Night reading. I wrote my first book, Owning Her Innocence, because well, I just couldn’t find any daddy books to my liking. So I sat down and just started writing, bringing the fantasies I find myself often dancing to in the dark of night to life, one page at a time.

Alexa Riley is my alter ego. I can’t let the other soccer moms know what I’m up to or the guys at work for that matter. Little do they know that they’ve got nothing on my dirty talk.

I’m here to give you a quick fix of filthy dirty smut. Got a few hours to kill? Then I’m what you’re looking for.
