SYNOPSIS: I thought proving myself worthy of her love would be the hard part. If only… When I left my childhood small town, I had a lot to prove. Now, I have a lot to fix. Namely, my relationship with my best friends’ little sister.We were just kids when I rejected Terra. Even then, I knew I was nowhere near good enough for her. I was sure I’d eventually forget her. But a decade later, working as a firefighter, the one flame I can’t put out is the one I hold for her. So I’m back in Ocean Pines, but Terra’s moved on with someone who doesn’t have my history of bad decisions and impulsive behavior. And as if all that wasn’t enough, she’s sick. I’ll give her a kidney, my heart, the last breath in my lungs…anything she wants. I’ll do anything to save her life, even if it means watching her live it without me.
The Fall We Fell, book one in the Ocean Pines series, is a sexy, angsty, friends-to-lovers contemporary romance featuring a firefighter who’ll do anything to win the smart, strong heroine of his dreams. Happily ever after and no cheating guaranteed.
REVIEW: Holy bad decisions. This one was a damn emotional roller coaster. I just love Second Chance Romances so much. And it’s funny, because ones that start when they’re teenagers usually make me want to smack both the characters for a variety of reasons. The main one being that the teenage decisions usually cause the characters so much grief that could have been avoided. This one definitely starts off like that, so I really wanted to get to the second half. I just knew all the goodness was coming! It was definitely a journey for both of these characters. I felt all the emotions, because there was a lot going on. By the end of the book, I was ecstatic for these two and their story left me with a smile. Victoria did exactly what she needed to do with this book. I really like her writing and the way she brings a lot of different elements to the story that challenge the characters and show their growth. I would really like to see more about some of the characters in this book! I don’t know if she has a plan for that yet, but I would be here for it! As I learned more about this family, I totally fell for them!
Victoria’s debut novel, One More Shot, was released June 2, 2015. Between 2015 and 2019 she has had 10 novels published with Forever (Hachette) in two standalone series – The Hometown Players and The San Francisco Thunder. Victoria’s love of books began at 12 when she picked up her first Sweet Valley High and grew from there. Her favorite childhood gift remains the 1930s typewriter her parents found at a garage sale which actually wasn’t a gift for her. It was meant to be a display piece in their front hall but Victoria snuck it into her bedroom and it was on that typewriter she first began pounding out her own stories. When not writing books Victoria can usually be found on a beach somewhere. Her favorite beaches are La Concha in San Sebastian, Spain, Zuma Beach in Malibu California and Ocean Park, Maine.
