When Cassey Emerson graduated high school 3 years ago, she packed her bags and left the dusty trailer park she called home in the rear view mirror. Since then, she has worked hard to give herself the life, and career, that she always dreamed of. As the Publishing Assistant at Knight Media, her dreams are slowly but surely coming true…
But something is missing…
Kyler Knight is young, rich and the heir to the multi-million dollar fortune that is known as ‘Knight Media’ – the biggest and most successful media company in Chicago. When his father decides it’s time for Kyler to learn the ropes as successor, he didn’t think it would include working with someone like Cassey Emerson.
Their attraction is immediate and Kyler is everything Cassey should stay away from. He can’t give her what she wants, but that doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. When one passionate night changes everything, Cassey must decide whether or not she can accept what Kyler is offering, or walk away from how he makes her feel.
Suddenly, things change, lines are blurred, hearts are broken and Cassey is left to pick up the pieces after her hot, steamy relationship with Kyler becomes so much more…
Can she move forward or was she always destined to fall?
*This is an Adult Contemporary Romance Novel. Recommended for readers 18+ *
Destined to Fall is Cassey and Kyler's love story. Cassey has had a rough life and not a happy childhood. She has a job that enjoys and she vowed to never settle for anything that what she truly deserved. But meeting her boss' son was not in Cassey's plans, neither having a mind-blowing dream with him even before she saw him and later feel an impossible to deny attraction to him.
Kyler Knight is rich, handsome, with a bright future ahead thanks to his dad's company, Knight Media, and partially single. When his dad thinks that is time for Kyler to learn all about the company, he starts to work at Knight Media. But he wasn't expecting to see Cassey Emerson. And it's not easy to stay away, even if his dad said to him to not sleep with her, when he has to work with her.
Cassey's afraid to start something with Kyler and be someone else in his long list of hookups, but when the tension between them is too much, she accepts whatever she can have with the charming Kyler. They start a hot relationship, not strings attached, no feelings involved, but exclusive. But they were not counting on their own feelings, buried deep down, for one another. They are both afraid to say the forbidden words, afraid to loose what they have going on and stop the fantasy. However, life goes on and has plans of its own. Problems start to arise and threatening their possible future together.
This story is what a like to call a hot romance story. The main character, Cassey is a strong woman. You read about her past life and you admire her for being able to leave everything behind and start from zero, in a new town, without anything and without any family support. You simply like her for being so brave and you can also tell by reading her side of the story that she's a good person and easy to relate to.
Kyler is one of those hot, rich and womanizer guy that we love to read about. He's the perfect representation of a rich boy who doesn't look down other people because of their lack of money and that earned him a lot of points to be in my Fictional Boy's List. You can also read his point of view throughout the whole story and it's nice to see the change in their relationship between the two perspectives. Kyler has a lot to deal with and you can perfectly see when his relationship with Cassey starts to be something more and you just want to squeak and jump like a crazy book addict.
What I wanted to say that I hate about the character's behavior from the story (NOT that I hate the story! Never that!) is how Drew treats Cassey. I just wanted to punch him in the face and ask Quinn how she would think this guy was worth Cassey's time.
And I despised Drew's mother attitude. She scowls at Cassey for not being a rich girl. What? Yep. It gets to the level of wanting to punch the woman.
And the characters that won my heart were Kyler's parent. They are so cute and such good people that it's even hard to believe it. They really like Cassey and they treat her like a daughter.
As for the story, it was a truly enjoyable romance story. You can easily follow both points of view without losing track of anything or feeling lost. Both Kyler and Cassey are two characters easy to read and like. At the end of the story you can understand the title of the book perfectly and know why Tamsyn had to named it like that. It was not possible to make it more perfect.
Overall, I enjoyed so much Destined To Fall that I couldn't stop reading it until I knew how the relationship between these would end. It was addictive, hot and beyond romantic. And that made me read the book in a few hours. So, yes, this is a must read story, one of those who make you stay up all night until you get to the last page. And that's why I'm giving this book four gorjuss dolls and highly recommending it to you, Book Addicts.
I just wanted to say thank you so much to Enna & Jennifer at Enticing Journey Book Promotions for letting me be part of this amazing tour and giving me the chance to read Tamsyn's new book. Also I have to thank Tamsyn, too, for writing such amazing stories and making me want to read more and more. Everything she writes becomes a mind-blowing and epic romance story and I don't need to read the synopsis of her following books to know that I am going to love it.
*I was given this ARC for an honest review and being part of the tour does not affect in any way what I think about the story.*
