Take the Fall by Marquita Valentine: Release Day Blitz with Teasers and Review

We're celebrating the release of TAKE THE FALL by Marquita Valentine!
Title: Take The Fall (Take the Fall #1)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 21, 2015

Book Description:
As a teenager, Seth O’Connor went to jail for a crime he had nothing to do with. He took the fall to protect the girl he loved, but the cruel realities of prison hardened him. After doing his time, Seth shuts her out and enlists in the Marines—until his grandmother’s funeral forces him to come home and face Rowan Simmons once again. The woman she’s become puts all his high-school memories to shame, and Seth wants her more than ever. Can he be honest about why he denied her for so long?

After Seth pushed her away, Rowan swore that no man would ever hurt her again. But the boy who broke her heart has become a sexy Marine, capable of fulfilling her every desire—and now that he’s back in town, old feelings are simmering to a boil. Rowan wants to stay strong, even as her body surrenders to his expert touch. She only hopes that by taking him back, she can finally help heal the wounds that drove them apart.

My Review:   I love Maruita Valentines Boys of the South series and when I found out she was writing a spin-off from that, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.  Let me just say that I was absolutely delighted with Take the Fall.  It is a short book that packs a punch and it captivated me from beginning to end.  I loved both Rowan and Seth.  There story is tragic, but they are given a second chance at love, that is if they can get past all the hurt that resulted from what happened 7 years prior.  Seth is no longer the 17-year-old angry boy Rowan knew.  In fact, he has turned into quite the man, causing all those feelings Rowan wants to ignore to come back to the surface big-time.  Seth just wants to make things right, and he wants Rowan, determined to prove himself to her.  There romance is hot and sexy, and the story itself is very good and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Take the fall is a great beginning to this new series by Marquita Valentine and I can't wait to read the next installment in the series.  You'll definitely want to check this one out.
