My life just went South…
Twenty-four hours. That’s how long it took my life to flip upside down.
Wake up in bed alone after the best night of my life? Check.
Get fired instead of the promised promotion? Check.
Wealthy parents cut me off when I refuse to follow their path for my life? Check.
Now I’m in Cricket Creek, SC—a place where no New Yorker belongs—disowned and broke, with a new job that I can’t mess up. Oh yeah, and staring at my one-night stand, who happens to be the complete opposite of my type.
Noah Hunter never should have made it back to my apartment in NYC, and I definitely shouldn’t be in his small town. But fate had another plan. Or a horrible sense of humor.
Who knew Mr. Wrong could feel so right…
No Falling Allowed is a new adult contemporary romance by Melissa West. It is the second book in the No Kissing Allowed series. I liked the first book, No Kissing Allowed, but I didn’t love it as much as some of Melissa’s other books. The good news is, I liked No Falling Allowed a lot more than I liked the first book. No Falling Allowed is a fun, quick and flirty new adult romance. Each of the books in the series can be read as a standalone. I think fans of the first book would enjoy reading about Cameron and Aiden because they do pop up from time to time in this story, and we get to see what is next for them. However; if you are new to the series, you might want to consider reading No Falling Allowed first, because I really enjoyed this one a good bit more than No Kissing Allowed.
No Falling Allowed is Grace’s story. We met Grace in the first book, but we didn’t get to meet her sexy bartender match- Noah until this book. And I have to say- I really liked Noah. Him and Grace no doubt have chemistry between the two of them, and their dialogue cracked me up!
No Falling Allowed is a book that just clicked for me. I loved the small town setting, and I loved that this was a new adult small town romance. I don’t read too many of those. And I am really loving bartenders at the moment. And Noah is a great one, let me tell you! And Grace is even better. Most of my issues with No Kissing Allowed centered around the main character, Cameron. I had no issues with Grace, and I think that is why I enjoyed reading her story more. Noah is the one that pulls some major butthead moves in this story. But there is still something about him. He has this magnetic personality. You can’t help but forgive him. Even though Noah annoyed me at times with his aloof attitude, what made him different from Cameron was that Noah seemed to real and nuanced, whereas Cameron just seemed annoying to me. Noah and Grace are fantastically developed and realistically flawed. It makes their romance even more satisfying.
Bottom line: I love Melissa’s easy and conversational writing style. It made reading this book feel good. If you are looking a quick and fun read, and you like small town “bad boy” romances new adult style, this might be a great one for you. And like I said, I do hope that Melissa West makes stories for the rest of Cameron’s friends from book one. I want to see Lauren next!
