Review: No Falling Allowed by Melissa West

Posted on

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.

Southern.

Cocky.

Bartender.

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…


My Review

“I glanced up, wishing with all my heart I wouldn’t find those deep blue eyes staring back at me. It was that night all over again, him seeing and reading so much more than I wanted to share.So much more than anyone else had ever seen.”

“You called me Noah.” My breathing slowed, the name settling over me, warming me. So few people called me Noah that it always sounded foreign, but from Grace it sounded like coming home.

Melissa West!! You have done it again!! You have once again written something so brilliant, and so swoon-worthy, that I am just blown away. Now, I LOVED No Kissing Allowed, so when I heard about No Falling Allowed, my expectations were high. And let me tell you, Melissa West took my expectations, crumbled them up and totally blew them out of the water.

Told from dual points of view, No Falling Allowed follows the story of Noah and Grace. From the moment we meet these two characters, the sparks are instant and there is a whole will they/won’t they element introduced. So, of course when Noah and Grace agree to spend one night together, I couldn’t help but jump for joy. You just knew from the connection and chemistry that they had that this moment, this one night was going to be a game changer…..Only they don’t know that yet. When an emergency pulls Noah away in the middle of the night, Grace doesn’t think she’s ever going to see him again….But, fate has other plans of course. Fate brings Noah and Grace back together and shows them that what they have is real and worth pursuing. Their road to HEA isn’t going to be an easy one, and at the end of the day, all you can do is just sit back, enjoy the ride and watch how it will all play out…

Simply put, No Falling Allowed is brilliant. It is well written and captivating. You can tell that a lot of heart and soul went into writing this book. One of the things that I love about Melissa West is how real her stories are. Her characters have real problems, they’re not always perfect and struggle like the rest of us. Their stories are easy to relate to. Noah and Grace stole my heart from the very beginning. Their chemistry was instant and had me rooting for them the entire time. This book hit all my marks as far as angst and romance go. There was plenty of steam and frustrating moments to boot. And moments that left me with tears in my eyes–happy tears of course. No Falling Allowed gave me everything I wanted and more. If you’re a fan of swoon-worthy NA romance, then look no further and grab your copy of No Falling Allowed today. You will not regret it!
