Story 1: Mary & Anthony

Mary has belonged to Anthony since the day she was born. They’ve known each other their whole lives, but he won’t touch her until she says, ‘I Do.’

Their parents' story should have been a cautionary tale, but when Mary finally agrees to Anthony’s proposal, they run away to Vegas to tie the knot.

But what do they do when things don’t go according to plan and they find themselves caught between a Russian sniper and his runaway daughter?

Easy! Lock themselves in a hotel room and pop some cherries!

Story 2: Samuel & Nika

Samuel’s twin sister, Mary, is off to Vegas to marry his best friend, Anthony. Samuel’s heading to Sin City with them to give her away, but trouble in the form of a sneaky brunette stops him dead in his tracks.

Nika’s on the run, and she’s found herself backed into a corner. But she’s been trained on how to defend herself, especially against a big beast like Samuel.

From the first look, he was finished and had no intention of ever letting her go.

You begged for the story of Mary and Anthony, and here it is! The final chapter in the Taking the Fall series closes with two short stories on the children of Carter, Layla, Saint, and Jeanette.

Warning: These stories are just as fierce, just as strong, and just as steamy as the rest of the series. These novellas can be read as standalones but will be enjoyed even more after reading the Taking the Fall series.

Fall into Place is the novella/extended epilogue of Taking the Fall (Vol 1-4).

Fall into Place is an omnibus of two stories: Mary & Anthony is the story of Mary (Cherry’s daughter) and Anthony (Jeanette’s son) who have been dating basically from the day they were born (on the same day). Samuel & Nika is the story of Samuel (Mary’s twin brother) and Nika (Viktor’s (from Taking the Fall Vol #4) daughter) who meet and fall in love at first sight.

In all honesty, Fall into Place is only for readers who have read the original series. There is no tension in these stories, really. Mary & Anthony are afraid Carter will lose his shit when he finds out Anthony wants to marry his daughter (though they’ve dated their entire lives). They decide that the best way to escape parental interference is to elope.

Samuel meets Nika while on the way to the elopement with Mary and Anthony. The three of them are best friends with Samuel and Anthony owning a successful bounty hunter business. While on the way to Vegas they are offered a large contract to track down and return Nika. Samuel takes one look at her picture and “knows” she’s the one for him. *rolls eyes* He finds her, they marry.

The foursome return to their parents, announce their marriages and have a happy reunion with everyone, including Viktor and his wife.

Like I said, extended epilogue but totally worth the read if you’re already read Taking the Fall.
