Review ~ Fall Guy (Youngblood Series #1) - Liz Reinhardt

Fall GuyEbook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Random House Childrens Publishers UK

When Evan Lennox meets Winchester Youngblood . . .

Evan Lennox is going nowhere fast.

She's living with her grandparents after her parents bailed on her, she got kicked out of her posh private school, and her ex-boyfriend turned out to be a total sleaze. To top it all off, one teeny, tiny fire she lit to burn some memories of her ex goes out of control and lands Evan's pampered behind in court. She's sentenced to community service and dreading it.

Until she meets Winchester Youngblood on the site.

Everything about him is tricky, not what it seems, and so sexy, Evan can't resist pulling closer. But every step she takes to get to know him gives her more of a reason to back up. Because Winch is one hundred percent complicated, and Evan isn't looking for that. At all. She needs to meet a nice, responsible guy, not share searing kisses with the charming bad boy she met in court.

But Winch is so much more than what he seems, and Evan finds out that she's falling hard for the guy everyone underestimates and writes off. And Winch realizes that Evan is the one person who's ever challenged him to ask for more out of his life. With the odds stacked against them, Evan and Winch need to find out whether they have what it takes to fall for each other.

My Opinion

This was a really enjoyable read. It was a great romance that kept me hooked so much that I've ended up with a slight sunburn as I didn't realise how much time had gone by because I was enjoying it so much. It kept me turning pages for hours with it's enthralling narrative.

Fall Guy was full of engaging characters that were easy to connect with, like and fall in love with. I was drawn instantly into the book by Winch's secrets and I loved how they were revealed slowly throughout the book. The fact that some of them weren't that predictable really built the suspense of where the author was going to take the book. I also liked how both characters struggled with revealing their secrets and letting go. It made them all the more believable and easier to connect with as the romance moved along.

As well as this the story involving Winch's family outside the romance was interesting. I liked how the problems weren't sugar-coated in the writing as I've read quiet a few romances where everything is great both in and out of the couple's relationship. This book didn't have that and as Winch tries to juggle Evan and his family it made the book easier to engage with as it felt real.

There was only one minor issue that I had and that was the switching points of view every chapter. I loved hearing both sides of their stories and opinions but occasionally I did forget who's POV the book was being written from and when reading speech it became a bit confusing. I had to re-read a few sections to clear up who said what but this didn't happen very often.

Overall this book was an enjoyable book that is one of the most believable romances I have read this year. The characters pull you in and make you love them and the writing is just brilliant! I'm off to check out Liz Reinhardt other work, I would seriously recommend Fall Guy.
