Five Ways to Fall: A Novel | [K. A. Tucker]

Five Ways to Fall: A Novel

Purple-haired, sharp-tongued Reese MacKay knows all about making the wrong choice; she's made plenty of them in her twenty-odd-years. 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. After three long years of balancing law school with his job as a bouncer at Penny's Palace, Ben'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.

Publisher's Summary

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 20-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…

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    Story
    "Light, entertaining"

    Reese is a troubled and trouble-making 21 year-old who takes a trip to Cancun as a step in recovery from a short, painful marriage. She meets Ben, who is on his last day of vacation. Even though Ben is the type to sleep with any female who shows an interest, he is enamored by Reese’s energy, unsocial behavior, and sharp tongue. Reese is estranged from her materialistic mother and accepts the assistance of one of her mother’s exes and past step-father, who puts her to work in his law firm.

    Ben and Reese meet again months later as Ben begins his first position as a lawyer in the same firm. Reese’s ex appears back in her life with his new wife and former mistress. Reese is bitter and wants to hurt them as much as they hurt her, which drives much of Reese’s actions through the book. Ben is happy to be entertained by and a participant in Reese’s revenge as long as she understands and accepts his position against commitment.

    The last book in a series, “Five Ways to Fall” reads well without reading previous installments. Tucker can write and is particularly good with character development, but isn’t the best storyteller. The plot would have been strengthened by expounding on Reese’s parents and her quest to learn about her father. The performances are well done, but production has a few small problems.

    Overall, good escapism and worth a credit.

    Story
    "Perfection in every sentence"
    If you could sum up Five Ways to Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Ultimate listening pleasure.


    What other book might you compare Five Ways to Fall to and why?

    None. It is in a class of its own. A fanatastic and realistic story delivered audibly with shear excellence.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Louise and Deacon Lee – was your favorite?

    Reece and Ben in no particular order..... and all the other characters: Mason, Lena, Jack, Annabel, Ben's mom to mention a few....were all great


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh so hard, it was okay to cry. Very emotional with a lot of warm and fuzzies to make the ride worthwhile.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read and listened to all of the books in these series and with this installment, I am a K.A. Tucker fan for life.....I am adding all her books to my library and cannot wait for my daughters to be 18+ to read them.....They have become a family requirement of mine. The Narrators are off the chain in thier delivery and can only be compared to the best : Becca Batoe, Kirk Kerby...and still could easily come on top.......

    "A disappointing end to a great series :("
    Any additional comments?

    The book begins with us getting Reese 's back story that doesn't ally have a lot to do with the main story line. Then we see her meet Ben in Cancun, after this embarrassing encounter she thinks to never see Ben again. Until she finds out he's working for her stepfather. Now these two start to become semi friends under strange circumstances that may lead to more if they can overcome their issues...

    This book was okay. I liked it but no where as much as previous books. I so loved them... I felt this one got rather boring times... I just really didn't care for Reese, there was just something about her that rubbed me the wrong way. As the last story in the series I wish we had gotten to see a little more of the characters from previous books.. Not a book i would listen to again sadly...

    "Great story!"
    What aspect of Elizabeth Louise and Deacon Lee ’s performance would you have changed?

    I didn't thing Deacon was the right fit for Ben. I feel that his voice would have been much deeper, similar to the voice of Cain/Trent.

    I hated to see this series come to an end! I love K. A. Tucker's writing so much. Each and every story just gets better, and each main character's story is unique. The narrators in each book were the best too. I highly recommend the entire series.

    Another great story by K.A Tucker. I'm sad to see this series end. I'd love more. I'd love more from different characters, but I'm excited to read her new series.

    What did you like most about Five Ways to Fall?

    Audiobook for Five ways To Fall T.A Tucker

    Reese is a Purple hair, pierced, spontaneous woman with Loads of spunk who likes to be a little bit of a rebel.
    When she Marries her boyfriend of 6weeks she thought that they were madly in love, Only to come home from work one day to find him sleeping with his Ex girlfriend.
    After doing something incredibly funny to her ex house she lands herself in a little bit of trouble.
    After that she decides that she need a new start and moves to Miami.

    Ben was all set for his Big Football career when in one fateful game he blows his knee out. He was always good at school so he dives into a different career path.

    After Meeting a very drunk Reese one night Ben hasn’t been able to get her out of his head.

    Now Ben is a Lawyer just out of collage when he starts at his friends dads firm, Where he turns up one day to see Reese is one of there paralegals.
    I’m not going to give too much of this story away but it had me giggling and heartbroken for the young lives this couple have had to endure.

    Listening to this Audiobook mad me what to run out and get all of K. A. Tuckers book due to reading them out of order now I have to catch up.
    K.A. Tucker thank you for the hours of reading pleasure.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Louise and Deacon Lee – was your favourite?

    I Love listening to both Elizabeth and Deacon.
    I Found Deacon’s voice to be deep and sexy with so much humor when it was called for I felt he really delivered Ben rolls well.
    Elizabeth sounds young and full of Sass just like her character has in this book.

    Story
    "Predictable Chick Lit"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listened to the book but I felt it was way too predictable. I was rarely surprised about the story.


    What will your next listen be?

    My next listen is Lesley Pearse ' Forgive Me'
    I have read one of her books before and I enjoyed it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I am just not into american voices and I guess I did not think about that when I listened to the preview.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No !


    Any additional comments?

    I just think I have grown out of predictable endings for stories :-)
