Product Description

It was only supposed to be one night. One night of hot, no-strings-attached sex.

But what happens when one night turns into two years? Two of the best years of their lives... until it wasn't.

Quinn Taylor doesn't believe in happily-ever-afters. Her heart hardened by the past. Despite Quinn's inability to trust, Alex Conway knows there's something worth fighting for.

Alex makes Quinn question everything she's ever believed to be true about men. She doesn't want to let him in but there's no denying he's under her skin.

Just when Alex thinks he's broken down her walls, Quinn runs, breaking his heart, and he has no idea why.

After two long years without closure, Alex has finally had enough of wondering what went wrong. He's determined to win Quinn back. The only problem... she's engaged to someone else.

Can Alex figure out how to win back the love of his life before she breaks both their hearts irrevocably? Will Quinn realize that everything she's ever believed is all a fallacy?

***While this series can be read without reading The Uninhibited Series, it is a spin-off that contains spoilers for the first series. It is suggested you read Inhibitions, Unrestricted and Freed first.***

I thought I loved Kimberly's books before, but after reading Fallacy I am straight up hooked on Bracco! I'll openly admit I was a slightly upset when I finished reading it and immediately messaged the author, but thankfully she took it all in stride.

I adored Quinn Taylor, she's hard-as-nails in all aspects of her life, and doesn't take crap from anyone, except her father. The reason she's this way is because she's deeply affected by something that happened in her past, and because of that she doesn't believe in relationships or commitments. She likes men and sex, and after she's had both she walks out the door without a backward glance. That is until she meets Alex.

Alex Conway. God, where do I even begin with this amazing guy! He's kind of like Quinn. He has his fair share of hot hook-ups and isn't looking for anything serious. One night with Quinn changes everything. He can't get her off his mind. He's a little sweeter than what Tanner was, but he knows how to get down and dirty with the best of them. I think his sweet nature is what appealed to me the most though. He pursues Quinn, and they fall into their relationship rather easily. He falls madly in love with her. Her with him. And they live happily-ever-after...WAIT A MINUTE, THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENS!

Sorry Kimberly, I guess I'm still a little hostile.

They part ways for two years, after Quinn calls it quits and cuts Alex out of her life. Quinn moves up in her father's company. Alex moves away for his career. But then he moves back. Only to discover the woman he still loves (but is angry with for tearing out his heart and stomping on it) is engaged.

3.0 out of 5 stars their story could have been told in one good book. When will these authors realize that they ... 26 June 2016
By Just Because - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There were several reasons why I gave this book 3 Stars:
1. I wished the author had begun Alex and Quinn's story after they met up in Ashley’s hospital room, which was at the end of Tanner & Ashley's Saga.
2. This story could have all been done in 1 book, because there was no need to draw it out to the point of ad-nauseum over two book If this story had been 1 book I would have given it 4 stars. We had so much of Alex & Quin in Tanner & Ashley’s book, their story could have been told in one good book. When will these authors realize that they water down their work when they stretch these stories out over multiples books unnecessarily?
3. After the irrational BS Ashley put Tanner through, it was laughable for me to believe that “strong”, “Tell it like it is” Quinn broke Alex's heart all because she thought he would cheat on her when he NEVER exhibited that type of behavior before, and to break up with someone over an assumption without even hearing him out, made me roll my eyes innumerous times. It just didn’t fit the character we knew of Quinn up to that time.
4. Quin was the queen of NO BS, but by the end of the book, that is all that came out of her mouth, BS.
6. I hate cliff-hangers.
What I did love about this book at first was Quinn’s strength, and her pension for telling it like it is. The sex scenes were smoking HOT, but they were just not enough to make up for all the crappy filler in between.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best friends to Tanner and Ashley 28 February 2016
By Sofia Almiroudis - Published on

Fallacy is a spin off from Kimberly Bracco's Uninhibited series; the series that first introduce us to Alex and Quin. The best friends to Tanner and Ashley. It's here that we first get a glimpse of Quinn and Alex's relationship, but never given any details. So I was thrilled to see that Quinn and Alex got their own book, their story.
Quinn is a strong. ambitious, sexy, confident, a no barriers kind of woman. Men fall to her feet and she has a slew of men to choose from. One-night-stands are all she needs to satisfy her sexual desires, never needing or wanting anything more. A encounter with Alex that was suppose to only be one time, leads to more. One night so incredible that both Quinn and Alex are ruined for others. Alex is very good at reading people and sees Quinn for who she really is. He knows she carries a lot of baggage and treads lightly as he wins her over through friendship. Without realizing it, Quinn's one-time rule is forgotten when it comes to Alex. Alex gets her. He makes her feel special, loved and cherished. Everything she doesn't feel from her parents especially her father who she does everything and anything to impress. She has a very hard time trusting, but somehow she has allowed her walls down and has fallen for Alex. She doesn't admit it with words, but Alex knows through her actions. What started as one-night leads to two years. Two years of wonderful, until something causes Quinn to question Alex's true self. Ending things with Alex causes a spiral of changes. A heart broken Alex moves to Arizona to pursue greater opportunities for his carrier. Quinn jumps back, head first into work, working in gaining her fathers approval so one day she can fill his shoes. What Quinn doesn't expect is her father changing the rules. After two years, Alex finds himself back, as head-trainer for the Jets. Still in love with Quinn he is determined to win her back, until he finds that Quinn has moved on and engaged to another man. Hurt, Alex needs and wants answers. Why did she end things between them when everything was going so well? What did Quinn's fiancé have and do to convince her to finally commit to forever?
I became a fan of Kimberly Bracco's through the Uninhibited series and an even bigger one now. Her writing keeps getting better and better. Ms. Bracco has this amazing ability to make you feel as if your experiencing what the characters are. Her sex scenes are hot with just right amount of sweetness and spice. I loved Quinn and Alex's story. I love that Alex was able to break down Quinn's walls with his simple gestures. II am so eager to see what choices Quinn is going to make in book 2, Irrefutable.

Quinn & Alex and were hot and electric...and then they weren't. No one but Quinn knows why.
Quinn was never a relationship kind of girl. She's a hit it & quit it and no repeats kind of girl. Her hook up with Alex after a club one night was supposed to be just that. When their best friends (Tanner and Ashley from the Uninhibited series) became a couple it was inevitable that they would be running into each other often. On a slow night they did each other a 'favor' by hooking up one more time. That night turned into a 2 year loosely described relationship - putting a label on it might ruin it.

Completely out of the blue Quinn breaks it off with Alex with no explanation and won't even communicate with him. When he is offered a great job opportunity across the country he takes it figuring he and Quinn with never be again and he might as well try for a fresh start. Quinn throws herself back into her job at her father's company 200% and begins to lose a little bit of herself in the process. Her father, who is only interested in money and power, basically blackmails Quinn into a side deal to help secure a merger with another large company so that he can truly be the richest and the most powerful no matter who he destroys in the process.

Alex's job brings him back home after 2 years and he has a glimmer of hope that he may be able to work things out with Quinn but the Quinn he once knew - and loved - is not really the same. It's hard to tell if she ever will be.

*sigh* I love this book! You can really feel for both Quinn & Alex so it's impossible to takes 'sides.' I'm on the side of them being together!

This is a spin off of the Unihibited series but it is its own stand alone series. That being said, I highly highly recommend reading it not just because it's an awesome story but to fully understand how Quinn & Alex's bond is formed and strengthened. Their story overlaps with the Uninhibited series just enough though. Love it!!!

Heart-pounding, steamy, angst, edge-of-your seat!…this is how I felt while reading Fallacy. This book had me so wound up flipping page after page wanting to see what happens next! Bracco delivered an phenomenal book that left me begging for more!

Quinn knows what she wants. She's a beautiful, strong, independent woman who's dead set on making CEO of her company and pushing her father out the door. She doesn't have time for relationships. She prowls for men at night to satisfy her sexual cravings. One Hello. One Night. One Romp. One Goodbye. That's all these poor men ever get from the career focused Quinn.

Alex is your typical man whore. He's sexy beyond belief. He's smart and he's successful in his career. He's not looking for a relationship. He fills his bed with meaningless sex and women who's names they're lucky if he remembers!

When Quinn and Alex's worlds collide, they were both looking for the same thing. What they always look for. A one time romp in the sack with a hot sexy body. What neither realized at the time, was that one time together, would ruin each other for anybody else.

Alex is determined to win Quinn over. He wants her and no one else.

Quinn has a past. A past that has made her afraid. Afraid of relationships….afraid of commitment….afraid of trusting men.

Alex is kind and caring. He's patient with Quinn because he knows something is holding her back. He doesn't know what it is. Quinn gradually starts trusting Alex more and more. He can read her emotions like an open book. He always knows just what to say or what to do to keep her calm. Everything between them is going great…..until her greatest fear and her father rears their ugly heads and she breaks things off with him.

Alex tries talking to her. Tries to figure out what made her scared enough to run from him. She avoids him at all costs though. Seeing no other choice, Alex takes a job he was offered in Arizona.

Determined to keep on the track she's been on for her career, Quinn goes back to her previous ways of "hit it and quit it". No emotions. No second hook-ups. No man will get in her way of taking of her fathers company. She was finally on the right track.

Or so she thought.

2 years pass and Alex is returning to his home state. To his friends……to Quinn. Maybe? Hopefully? When he returns, he finds something he never imagined. Quinn is engaged to someone else. She's changed. She's not the same girl he left. He doesn't recognize her and neither do their friends. She's become the one thing she's always hated. A cliché.

Will Alex find a way to change her mind? Will he be able to win her back?

Or will Quinn marry someone else and not give him a second thought?

Holy Wow! This book ended with a cliffhanger that had me spinning! Fallacy was hypnotic! It captivated me from page one until the very end! I'm now ecstatic that I don't have to wait for Irrefutable to be released! I don't think I could handle the turmoil going through Quinn and Alex that I was left with!

Loved every minute of it!!!
As always, kimberly did really good with an emotional, sexy story that I couldn't put down!
Can't wait for the next one in this duet :-)
Quinn and Alex left their mark as the most wanted-to-meet secondary characters I have ever met. They both were so cool and so loveable and I couldn't wait to read their story. Quinn has always been the one who never holds back. What you see is what you get. She doesn't hold back, always straight forward and when she wants something, she will get it. Growing up with trust issues and an awful man for a father, she lost all faith in falling in love and building a serious relationship with anyone. The only thing she cares about is making her way up to the top in her father's company and getting off with the next hottie she finds for the night – this is until the day she meets Alex.
What was supposed to be a one-night stand, becomes a second, third and so many more night stands. They become inseparable as good friends and lovers. Alex starts to fall in love with her while Quinn, in her own twisted, not admitted it kind of way, start to feel the same. They spend two amazing years together. They go through so much with Ashley and Tanner's tragedy and support each other through that awful time. Alex finally breaks though her brick walls and makes her feel but when things start to get too serious for Quinn to handle, those brick walls rise back up and make her run. Her trust issues get a hold of her and she starts imagining things about Alex’s loyalty to her. Her awful father says things that make her doubt herself and her career and the fact that her best friends are getting marry add stress to her already stressful mind. Two broken hearts, one monster of a father and a setup engagement, makes this book as awesome as it is!
