As the bassist for the band Caged, the last three years have been one, long non-stop party. Sure, I’ve had some regrets. Everyone does. But getting trapped in a relationship isn’t one of them. I know good and well what happens when the attraction fades. I’ve seen it first hand. Love is a zero sum game, so why play? As long as I’m upfront about my feelings, no one gets hurt. Besides, I’m never in one place long enough to worry about tomorrow.
That is, until the band decided to take an extended hiatus in our hometown. That’s when I met Melody Sullivan. She’s the full-package. Whip smart and beautiful, with enough determination to take on anything life has in store. And the best part? Melody shares my philosophy on the fleeting nature of attraction. She doesn’t buy into the whole “happily ever after” crap anymore than I do. We’re perfect for each other. For now. And now is all I want.
With the expectations off the table, I can let my guard down and enjoy her company until the spark dies. And we both know it will. In a week, or a month. But until then, we’ll just keep having fun. The good kind, with lots of sex and no strings attached. And when it’s time to move on, we will. No drawn out goodbyes and no remorse.
That’s the plan, at least.
I was given an eBook copy of Fall with Me by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Fall with Me is the second standalone novella in the Sixth Street Bands series by Jayne Frost, and although it’s not necessary to read Gone for You, the first novella in the series, I would highly recommend doing so if you want to know more about the music group Caged and the characters. It had almost been two years since I had read Gone for You, so it took me a while to remember all of the characters and events from that book, but once I did, I really enjoyed reading Christian and Melody’s story in Fall with Me. Christian and Melody were great characters and I liked their personalities and chemistry together. Their story progressed quickly since Fall with Me is a novella of just over 150 pages, but I thought the author did an excellent job writing and telling it. Christian and Melody’s story was interesting and entertaining to read, and although it was on the shorter side, it was tastefully done with very few grammatical errors. Fall with Me was solely told from Christian’s POV, and while I liked reading it from his perspective, I usually enjoy reading a book from both of the main character’s POV. But that’s just my opinion. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well and thought they made a nice addition to the story. I was kind of surprised how little music was mentioned in the book since it is a music romance, but I liked that the focus was mainly on Christian and Melody, and not the band. With all of that being said, if you’re looking for a short, sweet, and sexy romance with music elements, then Fall with Me and the Sixth Street Bands series is definitely for you!

About the Author
I guess I should start with the basics. The backstory. I was born and raised in California. At this point I’m usually asked what it was like to grow up near the beach, but sadly, I don’t know. I grew up in the “other” part of California. Perfect for an aspiring writer, if you ask me. You learn a lot about keeping yourself busy when the nearest house is a mile away…and it belongs to your grandparents.
By the time I went to high school, I started writing romance. Why? Because I met my very own prince charming. I wrote love poems in my journal about the green-eyed boy that stole my heart. He promised, the way all storybook hero’s do, to sweep me away and take me on a grand adventure. And he did. We picked up and moved to the Lone Star State, and began the story of us. The best stories begin without a road map or a compass. Veering off course makes the journey so much more interesting.
True to form, just when I thought my life was set, we started the next adventure. I traded in my cowboy boots and followed my green-eyed boy to Las Vegas. My home will always be in Texas, but my heart is anywhere that he is.
Writing is what I love. I might stray from the romance every now and then if that is what moves me…but I always come back. Some of the stories don’t seem romantic at all. They are gritty stories about flawed characters that find each other and hold on tight. Those are the stories that speak to me. Because that’s life. I believe that every story should have a happy ending – even the difficult ones.
