As a hardworking, hard-partying firefighter, Hayden Walker values his career and his freedom. But as the eldest son of a U.S. senator, he agreed long ago to follow in his father’s footsteps and run for office, and that means settling down and marrying the picture-perfect wife. Hayden just isn’t ready for that sort of commitment . . . not with women like beautiful, curvy Saylor Dean—the naughty bridesmaid he recognizes the morning after his buddy’s wedding—tempting Hayden to stay single forever.
The unwanted love child of a well-known politician, Saylor has always felt isolated and alone, her only solace the animal shelter she runs in Forrestville. Then she meets Hayden at her best friend’s wedding. During their impulsive and unforgettable night together, Saylor feels desired like never before—only to wake up and find that Hayden doesn’t remember his drunken proposal, or their hasty marriage, or her. But when the truth comes out, Saylor finds it’s a lot harder to fall out of love than in love.
“I’m not kissing you because I feel sorry for you. I’m kissing you because I’ll go out of my mind if I don’t”
Another amazing story from author Marquita Valentine.

Spending an unforgettable night with Hayden will change her life is ways she never expected. The only problem, Hayden doesn’t remember anything about their night together…..
Hard to Fall was a quick and easy read for me. I fell in love with the characters the moment I met them and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next with them. Overall, I thought this book was a lot of fun. I loved the cute geeky moments. There was plenty of laughter and good times. I adored Saylor and Hayden together. I thought they had excellent chemistry and I just couldn’t get enough of them. I couldn’t help rooting for the two them.
Hard to Fall is a great addition to the Take the Fall Series. It has just the right mix of angst, drama, romance, frustrating and steamy moments.
