✪ Taking The Leap (River Rain #2) ✪ Kristen Ashley ✪




 From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes the new book in her River Rain series, Taking the Leap.

Alexandra Sharp has been crushing on her co-worker, John “Rix” Hendrix for years. He’s her perfect man, she knows it.

She’s just not his perfect woman, and she knows that too.

Then Rix gives Alex a hint that maybe there’s a spark between them that, if she takes the leap, she might be able to fan into a flame. This leads to a crash and burn, and that’s all shy Alex needs to catch the hint never to take the risk again.

However, with undeniable timing, Rix’s ex, who broke his heart, and Alex’s family, who spent her lifetime breaking hers, rear their heads, gearing up to offer more drama. With the help of some matchmaking friends, Rix and Alex decide to face the onslaught together…

As a fake couple.


 ARC received for an honest review 

Now, I won't lie.  I did walk away from Kristen Ashley books for a while, but what a way to come bac with the River Rain series.

Since reading book one, I have been impatiently awaiting Rix and Alex's story.

And Ms Ashley did not disappoint me. 

Painfully shy Alex and the way she is around Rix gave me vibes of Jet from the Rock Chick series.

And nobody writes a grunty alpha like KA,  Even when I didn't particularly like the way Rix was acting, i couldn't help but love the guy.

I just wanted to wrap Alex up in a big ol' hug and tell her that we got her, and her family can go suck eggs (well, that is polite, and you will now what I mean when you read them).

Both these amazing people are going to have to take that leap, and you know that when it happens it is going to be amazing.

Loved getting more of Chloe and Judge, and I need, need,  need Sully, Gage, Sasha, Hale and Dru to get their stories.

Can't wait to see where Ms Ashley takes this series next.
