Quick Fall
Tracy Brothers #2
By Michelle Dayton
Releasing October 8th, 2018

Justin Tracy, the perennial life of the party, is used to being teased by his friends about his success with the ladies. Not that he’ll ever get serious with one. Why should he? His life is absolutely perfect the way it is. But at his brother’s bachelor party, a drunken bet about his womanizing skill gets a little out of control. Before he knows it, his friends have invited his new tenant – a woman he’s never even met – to go to his brother’s wedding with him.

Single mom Maddy Trainor has just moved back to Chicago, ready to reclaim her life and conquer the city. Maddy’s determined to get her new business off the ground and build a happy home for her son, Teddy. She didn’t expect a gorgeous landlord, but ogling Justin Tracy is definitely a bonus to her new apartment.

Justin intends to apologize to Maddy for the out-of-the-blue wedding invitation and get gone, but his new neighbor turns out to be funny, whip-smart, and sexy as hell. Why not take her to the wedding for real? Just as friends, of course. To Maddy, the wedding – one night of champagne and dancing with a self-admitted Peter Pan – sounds like amazing no-strings fun. But the sparks that blaze between the two of them can’t be contained to one night. And two people who think they have life figured out are about to realize they know nothing about love …

In Quick Fall (Tracy Brothers #2) by Michelle Dayton, when his friends decide to select a name from his phone and text an invite to his brother's wedding to the woman, Justin Tracy never imagined his life would change for the better. He's always been a womaniser, but Maddie makes him yearn for things he never thought he wanted such as forever with the right woman. Will Justin be able to convince Maddie to take a chance on him or did her past relationship put her off men forever? 

The first book of this series was an absolutely fun and entertaining read, so I couldn't wait to read more about the Tracy brothers, and I've got to say that this book was another wonderfully-written and charming addition for this series. Really, the main characters were delightful, as Justin begins to realize that perhaps he's found the one; the dialogue was a wonderful combination of intense moments due to the main characters back stories and playful banter that had me loving how the heroine teases the hero soon after they meet; and the plot had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether these two would get over their fears and achieve their happy ever after.

The way this story started drew me in immediately and had me intrigued to know whether the woman Justin's friends invited to the wedding would accept. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where this story gets really interesting, as it's palpable that Justin is quite the womaniser, considering the situation the heroine witnesses. Moreover, I really liked both the main characters and how they faced and overcame some tough obstacles to be together. No way should they continue to let their pasts stop them from having a future with the one they've fallen in love with. 

With the main characters, the heroine is strong and brave in the way she dealt with everything she's been through in her past, especially the fact that the father of her baby abandoned her. Will she finally be able to forgive the man she thought she once loved to have a future with Justin? I also liked the tight bond the heroine shares with her son, especially when it comes to their nightly routines. They're so cute together and had me smiling. While the hero, he's confident, charming, a good brother and I loved the growing bond between him and the heroine's little boy, especially in the moment when it's Halloween. I also liked that the hero couldn't stay away from the heroine, even though he doesn't do relationships because of things that happened in his past that make him believe he'll end up any woman who falls in love with him. 

Overall, Ms. Dayton has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was intense; the romance was full of exquisite heat and passion and had me glad that these two took a chance on each other because they need each other to heal from their pasts; and the ending had me loving the hero's determination to make things right with the heroine because she's the one for him and nothing should keep them apart. I would recommend Quick Fall by Michelle Dayton, if you enjoy the friends to lover trope or books by authors Tessa Bailey, Jennifer Crusie, Lucy Parker and Julie James.


              Justin caught her hand and pulled her out of the elevator before the doors even had a chance to fully open. “I’m all the way at the end of the hall.”
He was walking too fast for her sore feet; she tripped in her heels. “Wait. Slow down. My feet. Blisters.”
              He assessed the complicated gold sandals. “How long does it take to get those off?”
              Given the tiny buckle on the ankle strap … with the way her hands were shaking… She sighed. “Two minutes.”
              He grinned, mischief sparking in his eyes. “That’s two minutes too long.” Without another word, he lunged forward and threw her over his shoulder in a fireman’s hold.
              Maddy shrieked. She’d never been picked up literally by a man before. Upside down, she felt both ridiculous and ridiculously feminine. Uncontrolled laugher—her noisy, high-pitched kind—bubbled out of her mouth. She wouldn’t have thought she could move from unspeakable arousal to hysterical laughter in the space of five seconds, but apparently that’s what Justin did to her.
 “Almost there,” he called.
              Another thirty seconds and he carefully set her down. She clung to his shoulders until she stopped quivering. Eyes sparkling, Justin inserted the key card into the lock. “After you.”
“Oh,” she breathed. The room was so pretty. Dark wood furniture, a crisp, white duvet on the bed, and an incredible view of Michigan Avenue.
              “The hotel sent up a bottle of champagne as a thank you,” Justin said. “Can I pour you a glass?”
              “Please.” She’d stopped drinking at the wedding once the dancing had started. Since that was more than three hours ago, she was stone-cold sober now. And since the laughter had subsided and the fact that she was in a hotel room with a man was sinking in, a glass of liquid courage would be very welcome indeed.
              Although ... she wasn’t nervous, actually. There was nothing to be nervous about. She was a grown woman whose child was perfectly safe. For once, her legs were shaved and her bikini area was waxed. She was with a no-strings-attached man, but one who was genuinely kind and committed to his family. Someone funny. Someone trustworthy.
Justin handed her a glass of champagne and finished removing his bow tie.
              Someone unbelievably gorgeous. Someone who wanted her badly, if his hungry expression was anything to go by.
She set her champagne glass on the nightstand and slowly turned. “Unzip me?”

Meet Justin’s older brother, Garrett Tracy!
