“Subtlety was overrated. I refused to be another question mark, another unknown in her life.
In a sea of chaos, I’d be the anchor she needed.”
I am a huge fan of the friends-to-lovers stories and when I read the synopsis for What it Takes to Fall, I knew this was one book I had to get my hands on. This is the third book in the Forget me Knot series and was breathtakingly beautiful and sweet. I fell for these characters big time and wanted nothing more than to see them live happily ever after, like I felt they deserved. C. R. Ellis has written an engaging and stunning addition to the series with What it Takes to Fall. I fell in love with this sweet and sexy story about two childhood friends reunited after several years apart.
Elliot and Bryce are childhood friends who have reunited years later, and while you would expect your former best friend to have changed dramatically over the years, the love and care for these two was instantly apparent. They just morphed into what they once were with so much ease and it was quite obvious Elliot and Bryce were meant to be in each other’s lives forever.
I loved both these characters and the undeniable connection they had with each other that spanned over so many years; their friendly banter and their profound sexual chemistry kept me on the edge of my seat with the anticipation of their slow burning attraction. One thing I love most about friends to lovers stories is the anticipation and watching the lines between friendship and lovers become increasingly blurred the more you delve into the story.
“With you, the what ifs…fade away…”
Elliot is a career driven, independent and smart woman who is married to her job as a wedding co-ordinator while Bryce is sweet, sexy and charming. His sexy smirk and dirty talk meant they were simply a match made in heaven. The only obstacle standing in Bryce’s way was Elliot allowing her heart to open fully to the prospect of a forever with Bryce.
What it Takes to Fall is a fun, sexy and steamy small town friends to lovers romance that drew me in instantly and kept me fully immersed in the story right up until the very last word was read. C. R. Ellis is a strong writer whose beautiful words always resonate with me and I can’t wait to read Xander’s story next.
