Awesome story! Once I started reading it I had a hard time putting it down. The story line has lots of twists and turns always leaving you guessing what is going to happen next. This book is a great start to a new series. I can't wait for the next book to be finished.

JD is a woman of strength. She is determined to make it in her grandfather’s construction company on her own merits. When she finally gets her big break at managing a construction site on her own she jumps at the chance with gusto. Even though JD is one smart cookie she falls for one of the contractors she has hired to do demolition on the project. He is everything she likes but he has one little secret that will cost JD more than she knows. Then there is Nathan. Someone who shares a connection with JD even though she doesn’t understand it. Everything starts to unravel as JD learns a few things about her life.
I liked the story for many reasons. I love characters and JD (Julia) was a great character. She had a self awareness that made her want to prove herself. She tried to portray strength to the people around her but in her inner thoughts there was a vulnerability that made her seem more real. I liked that she turned to a milkshake at one point to get a little perspective. That moment made her someone I could connect with. I liked the aspect of angles/fallen angels. I’m not going to say any more about that but it added to my enjoyment of this story.
What I didn’t like: Even though the author does give some background to the connection between Nathan and Julia (JD) it is incomplete. I still found that I had questions and felt like I wasn’t getting the complete story between these two.
Overall Fall is a great read. I recommend this book to all those who enjoy a bit of the paranormal/romance/action cocktail.

What a great, short read! Having been abandoned by her mother as a baby and raised by her Grandfather, who owns a construction company, JD knows the business inside and out.

A little nervous she dives right in and takes charge. Enter Matthew, the tan, muscular, charming cowboy placing a bid for the demolition part of the job. As Matthew works his way into JD heart, she of course starts to fall for him. Having never been in love, yet along ever have a boyfriend or a first kiss, it doesn't take much for her to fall quick and fall hard. After discovering a strange box hidden in one of the walls of the schoolhouse, strange things being to happen. As JD soon realizes people are not what they seem and she struggles to put the pieces together of what is really going on and why. Little does JD know she is involved more than she could ever imagine.
The story moved at a perfect pace and was full of excitement. There were plenty of twists and surprises from beginning to end that had my jaw dropping as they took me by surprise. The characters were very well developed and the way they connected was well done. About 50 pages from the end I thought how great it would be for a sequel to this story and after the way it ended I really hope so. There are so many places the author could take this story line and the characters. I really wanted to give this read 5 stars on Goodreads I did notice quite a few grammatical errors in the second half of the book, which surprised me because the first half didn't have but maybe a couple, if that. These errors in no way distracted me from the story and I was able to just move past them. Based on this book, I firmly believe this author has a lot of potential and cannot wait to see if this story line continues! I would definitely recommend this read!
