Synopsis. (Goodreads)

Evan Lennox is going nowhere fast. She's living with her grandparents after her parents bailed on her, she got kicked out of her posh private school, her ex-boyfriend proved to be the biggest sleaze imaginable, her former best friend is a back-stabber, and her current best friend is stuck in backwoods NJ. To top it all off, one teeny, tiny fire she lit to burn some memories of her ex goes a little out of control and winds up igniting a good piece of a very powerful family's pecan orchard.

Evan lands her pampered behind in court and gets sentenced to community service. Which she knows she deserves. But the hard labor and humiliation may be her undoing.

Until she meets Winchester Youngblood on the site.

Everything about him is tricky, confusing, not at all what it seems, and so sexy, Evan can't resist pulling closer. But every step she takes to get to know him gives her more of a reason to back up and put him as far out of life as she possibly can. Because Winch is one hundred percent complicated, and Evan isn't looking for that. At all. She needs to meet a nice, responsible guy, not share searing kisses with the charming hustler she met after they both got sentenced in court.

But Winch is so much more than what he seems, and Evan finds out that she's falling hard for the guy everyone underestimates and writes off. And Winch realizes that Evan is the one person who's ever challenged him to ask for more out of his life, and her courage inspires him to try to be the person she sees when she looks at him. With every single odd stacked against them, Evan and Winch need to find out whether they have what it takes to fall for each other.

Review: 4 out of 5 stars

I have adored everything I have read to date by the wonderfully talented Liz Reinhardt and Fall Guy was no exception.

When Evan Lennox lands in court for burning down an orchard whilst trying to dispose of the memories of an ex, she didn’t expect to meet gorgeous, complicated Winchester Youngblood at her court hearing.

Evan’s life is in turmoil, she is living with her grandparents after her parents bailed, she got kicked out of school and her ex-boyfriend proved to be the biggest sleaze imaginable and to top it off her weekends will now be spent doing community service, with Winch who twists her in knots and has her fumbling.

Winch is a bad boy with big secrets and a complex family situation, he is the family fall guy which wasn’t a good thing when it came to the relationship he was beginning with Evan, the romance and boundaries were pushed to the limits with these two and to be honest I didn’t think there could possibly be a HEA without causing a HUGE family rift.

Evan and Winch were drawn to each other like moths to a flame, they knew they shouldn’t be together but their attraction and the pull they had was undeniable, the main obstacle between them was Winch’s older, troubled brother Remy as well as his obsessive family life and the role and obligations he held within it, Evan doesn’t belong in the world in which he lives which is filled with secrets, drama and danger – there were so many miscommunications between them that my head was spinning.

The story is told from both Winch and Evan’s POV’s which I always enjoy as we get great insight into their thoughts and the reasoning behind their behavior. Although I didn’t agree with their actions at times, knowing why made it all the more believable. They both had very real issues and the way in which they complemented one another was written well.

If you are after a drama-filled, intense, smexy and angst ridden read then Fall Guy is perfect! Liz’s writing is always amazing and detailed and the romance and chemistry scorching hot.

If you haven’t read anything by Liz Reinhardt, I certainly recommend everything she has written to date.

Thank-you kindly to author, Liz Reinhardt for providing me with a copy of Fall Guy in exchange for my honest opinion.
