Cole Reynolds had it all until one crazy night in college he and his friends feeling ten feet tall and bulletproof decide to drive drunk. Before the n..Show More »ight is over six people lie dead and the lives of the two survivors will never be the same. Cole will try and make it up to Kacey Cleary the 16 year old victim the only way he can; by watching over her, taking care of her; following in her wake. In the wake of losing her parents, boyfriend and best girlfriend she's become a reckless party girl and Cole becomes her guardian angel. He saves her from several bad situations that she was too stoned and reckless to avoid putting herself into dangerous situations. This novella is a great prequel to the initial K.A. Tucker book Ten Tiny Breaths which was narrated by Kacey. In her wake was Cole's take on the pre Florida Kacey when she was still in Michigan. As usual in this series it's a five star special.
The book is filled with endless twist and turns, and so many different things happen. Yet they ..Show More »all tie into the story line perfectly. I remember looking at the time left on the book a few different times and thought, "Wow....what else could possiably happen ? Or. What could Tucker possiably do to fill the the next 3/4s of this book with?"
It never got boring, it was none stop ride!
The whole thing was great! I also, often thought how very real these events and characters were.
And the narrator really was the whip cream and cherry on top of it all! She didn't seem like she was trying to hard. She was consistent with the different voices. And she had the appropriate emotions and tones.
I don't easily give out five stars.....but this was worth every single one!
This book was great not as captivating as the first book. Didn't need an entire box of tissues this time. You will still be drawn in from the beginnin..Show More »g. This story is set in college. I laughed and cried (a tiny bit) at times. I had a love / hate thing with Ashton. I felt bad for Conner but it just wasn't meant to be. You won't be disappointed with this book.
Four Seconds To Lose was a phenomenal addition to one of my favorite series! From the very first page, this book started strong. It had a totally fres..Show More »h concept and a very different vibe than the first two books despite fitting in well with the series. I really love it when an author is able to keep a series like this going and still deliver something completely unique each time. Cain and Charlies story was beautiful. It was a story of two people who have grown up in bad circumstances beyond their control and how they choose to overcome it. We never really learned a lot about Cain in the first two books and I must say I fell head over heels for him. Such a beautiful man with a tainted past. I loved that he was such a strong man just wanting to help those around him. Trying to right the wrongs of his past and upbringing. He had so much depth that I really wasn't expecting. I loved learning his back story. Then we have Charlie. I was unsure of what to expect from her; she was an enigma to me at first. But she turned out to be an amazing female character. The strength she shows in you decision-making process was beautiful. The book really kept me on my toes and I found myself biting my nails during a few parts. I love how each story line is different in this series and I adore all the fabulous characters in these books. If you're looking for sexy, heartfelt and well-written New Adult romances, this is a great series to try. I highly recommend all the books.
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..Show More » is on his last day of vacation.

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.
