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. EVERYTHING TURNS TO CRAP MORE LIKE IT!!!!
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. Even though he's upset with her and wants to know why she did that to him, he still devises a plan to win her back. Of course we don't find out in this book because we're left hanging, when Alex goes to Quinn's apartment the day of her wedding, in hopes of talking her out of it...and it just ends. Nothing resolved. Gah!!!!
So obviously, I have a love/hate relationship with this book. I absolutely adored the story, and most importantly the characters (well minus Quinn's dad), but I absolutely despise cliffhangers. I hate them soooooo darn much! In saying that, this was still a sexy, emotional read and I look forward to reading the conclusion to Quinn and Alex's story.
