Blog Tour, Book Review | Fall For Me by JC Emery

Melanie Kincaid is a trust-fund baby with a knack for sassy comebacks and unnecessarily complicating her privileged life. So, of course she would have to fall in love with a man she can't have.

Jameson Hayes is a NYC firefighter for Manhattan’s oldest ladder company with big shoes to fill and a city to protect. He’s strong, sexy, and not looking for the complications Melanie brings. But he can't stay away from her either. The attraction between them is immediate and the pull between them is crazy powerful. But she's only home for the summer and long-distance relationships never work.

Unfortunately, Melanie’s beauty and smart mouth are a lethal combination and Jameson isn't the only Hayes who's interested. As if his brother isn't enough to compete with, now the city's most famous arsonist wants to claim her as his next prize. Jameson can't stand to watch Melanie get hurt and she can't seem to keep herself out of trouble.

Fall for Me is the first Ladder Company novel, a stand-alone companion series about New York's most elite firefighting family with hot alpha heroes, snarky heroines, and an arsonist hell-bent on destruction.

Melanie Kincaid liked Jameson Hayes and the rest of his family the moment she laid her eyes on him/them. She might come from a well-off family, but she’s really a down to earth person. She has sass, and it sometimes gets her into trouble. But there was one trouble that she can’t seem to shove off her life and that is falling in love with someone who belongs to another.

If Melanie Kincaid is well –off, Jameson came from humble beginnings, he came from a family of firefighters. He’s handsome, strong, sexy, responsible, and doesn’t like complications. But Melanie is one complication he can’t complain about. This girl was everything his girlfriend wasn’t – not to mention his family adored her. She’s best friend with his sister!

Their attraction was instant, and their chemistry was off the charts. She was home for the summer and was going back to college after. Long distance relationship doesn’t work that well. Not to mention, he has a long-term relationship with someone else. Since he can’t put a claim on her, his brother took an interest on her. Not only that, her life was at risk because the city’s most notorious arsonist is on her. He needed to keep her out of danger and trouble.

They are stubborn, and it was killing me. Jameson – how can you just stare at the very thing you wanted the most and allow someone to step in? How can you stay with someone who doesn’t make you happy at all? Well, in fairness to him, he kept Melanie in the friendzone much to the chagrin of everyone. He tried not to cheat, he tried to be loyal. There was this one time, a slight slip, but not the total crossing the line.

And I thought everything was going to be smooth when he finally got his freedom, only to find out that danger and some insecurities where lurking around the corner.

It was not only Melanie who waited but Jameson as well. But with waiting, they have built friendship which will ultimately be the foundation of their relationship. It was a long wait, a bit excruciating but when the wait was finally over – everything was worth it.

JC Emery wrote a sweet and romantic read that will frustrate you, make you swoon and will make you realize that good things come to those who wait. It’s a story of love and romance. Timing is indeed important when it comes to love and relationships.

“Every time you think about me you touch your necklace.” His eyes fall from mine to the gold wishbone that hangs from my neck and rests against the hollow at the base of my throat. I remove my hand from my necklace. I don’t even realize I’m doing it half the time. I could lie, that I’m not thinking about him, but he wouldn’t believe me.

“You hear my voice and you touch it,” he says slowly with a soft smile that creeps up on his lips. “You see me walk by and you touch it.”

“And we’re friends,” I say, reminding both of us of this fact.

“Kind of hard to be friends when one of us is refusing to participate,” he says.

“This is stupid. We’re attracted to each other, but we’ve chosen not to do something about it. I’m going back to New Orleans until graduation and you’re stuck in a lease with Miss Cranky Pants. That’s our lives and every time you start being all Mr. Gorgeous, you make it hard for me to remember that.”

His shoulders shake as he laughs, looking carefree for the first time in over a week, and he breathes deeply as he calms himself. “Miss Cranky Pants, that’s a good one.”

I don’t even have the decency to be embarrassed for letting my nickname for Lydia slip in front of him. It’s bad enough I said it in front of Roy, his dad, who’s now using it on an almost exclusive basis. Thankfully, Jameson doesn’t call me on referring to him as Mr. Gorgeous.

“I want to be your friend but we need boundaries,” I say. I don’t really want friendship, but I’ll take what I can get.

“List your demands and I’ll list mine.”

Christ, this man is ridiculous.

As a child, JC was fascinated by things that went bump in the night. As they say, some things never change. Now, as an adult, she divides her time between the sexy law men, mythical creatures, and kick-ass heroines that live inside her head and pursuing her bachelor's degree in English. JC is a San Francisco Bay Area native, but has also called both Texas and Louisiana home. These days she rocks her flip flops year round in Northern California and can't imagine a climate more beautiful.

JC writes adult, new adult, and young adult fiction. She dabbles in many different genres including science fiction, horror, chick lit, and murder mysteries, yet she is most enthralled by supernatural stories-- and everything has at least a splash of romance.
