The Consequence of Falling, a contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras is Live!
Sandy’s 4.25 BLUSH Review
From the moment that Presley and Nathaniel meet they are like oil and water. They instantly dislike each other but the chemistry is there under the surface.
She’s daddy’s little girl and Daddy is a very well off businessman. He’s a kid trying desperately to learn the ropes of the business world from someone he respects.
The Consequence of Falling is a catchy title and that’s exactly what I did – fall. I was all in from page one and I read straight through because “enemies to lovers” – do I need to say anything else? Every time he called her princess, I smiled. He knew exactly what button to push to get a reaction but his timing never seemed to be right. Their lives orbited around each other because of Nate’s relationship with Presley’s father, Winston Rose. She went with her heart and threw herself at him. He always turned her down flat.
Presley has been burned by her ex-husband and she’ll be damned if another man is going to do that to her again. She’s running her own life! Nathaniel has an on again/off again relationship but he aims to capitalize on his tremendous success and continue to build his empire. Now both adults with professional responsibilities and in the real world actions have consequences. Mixing business with pleasure doesn’t seem like a good idea. When Winston falls ill, both Presley and Nate are put in a position that they cannot avoid each other and the fireworks are spectacular.
I LOVED THE ANGST! I got plenty of it here. Along with visits from some beloved characters from Claire’s previous books which absolutely made me so happy. Angst, laughter, tears, sexy and swoony – yes! We get it all. Though I admit there were times when I wanted to shake Presley, I got where she was emotionally at that point in the story. Nate is keeping a big secret from her. Things are not always as they seem and these two at the heart of it all are both afraid of being hurt. How Presley and Nate navigate the waters of heartache, love, and trust on the way to their HEA was a fun ride.
The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .
1. Black coffee
2. Rude people
3. Nathaniel Bradley
Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.
1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.
2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.
3. He disapproves of everything I do.
I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.
I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.
I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.
