The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .

1. Black coffee
2. Rude people
3. Nathaniel Bradley

Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out. 

1. He’s an annoying know-it-all. 
2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets. 
3. He disapproves of everything I do.

I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin. 

I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.

I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.

The Consequence of Falling by Claire Contreras

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

➳A second chance novel that will have you wanting more of Claire’s writing and her way of emotionally captivating her audience…

➳Claire is known as an author who knows how to properly write a romance novel that will captivate your heart completely. No matter what the story line may be, she knows how to slowly and surely gravitate you to the next page making you want to read more. There is no denying this romance novel is an exception since there is so much to look towards to when it comes down to Presley’s and Nathaniel’s story. Both are two individuals whom have known each other for years. Years turned into days where they would constantly see each other throughout their college years. Both NYU students, they know how to take advantage of the city life. Obstacles come their way but they, especially the one obstacle for Presley, tend to be no match towards the rejection Nathaniel has towards her every time she wants him.

➳In his mind however, we later throughout the story learn to realize that he rejects her advances for the sake of him wanting all of her. Not just the drunken Presley who has such a feisty attitude towards him and wanting to devour him. But also the Presley who has this inner, deep emotional side to her that Nathaniel wants to own and captivate in the most sweetest of ways.

➳Once they are together, both emotionally and physically, Presley and Nathaniel learn how to properly be with other and not hate each other. To me, I find this witty banter that they both have to be one that is endearing in the best of way. Overall I enjoyed Claire’s novel. It is one that truly does get your blood pumping in such a tender attribute, one that also has your heart speeding with wanting more of Nathaniel.

About Claire

Claire doesn’t like to talk about herself. Because of this, she asked a friend of hers to write her bio. This is what she got:

Claire is caring, smart, witty, and funny as heck. Despite being a New York Times Best Selling Author of a popular contemporary romance series, Claire doesn’t read many romance novels. However, when she sits down to write, those are the ones that pour from her fingers. Much to her displeasure, we like to say she’s a romantic at heart.

She is a breast cancer survivor who lives in Miami with her good looking husband, two adorable boys, three bulldogs, and two stray cats that she refuses to admit are hers (even though they live on her porch and she continues to feed them). When she’s not writing, she’s always lost in a book (the more suspenseful, the better).
