When Cassey Emerson graduated high school 3 years ago, she packed her bags and left the dusty trailer park she called home in the rear view mirror. Since then, she has worked hard to give herself the life, and career, that she always dreamed of. As the Publishing Assistant at Knight Media, her dreams are slowly but surely coming true…

But something is missing…

Kyler Knight is young, rich and the heir to the multi-million dollar fortune that is known as ‘Knight Media’ – the biggest and most successful media company in Chicago. When his father decides it’s time for Kyler to learn the ropes as successor, he didn’t think it would include working with someone like Cassey Emerson.

Their attraction is immediate and Kyler is everything Cassey should stay away from. He can’t give her what she wants, but that doesn’t stop him from pursuing her. When one passionate night changes everything, Cassey must decide whether or not she can accept what Kyler is offering, or walk away from how he makes her feel.

Suddenly, things change, lines are blurred, hearts are broken and Cassey is left to pick up the pieces after her hot, steamy relationship with Kyler becomes so much more… Can she move forward or was she always destined to fall?

*This is an Adult Contemporary Romance Novel. Recommended for readers 18+ *

It's amazing how your environment impacts your perception of a book.  I read Destined to Fall right after I read RAW by Belle Aurora.  If you've read RAW, you know it is not a light read.  It's heavy and gritty and leaves you unsettled.  I didn't intentionally pick Destined to Fall to follow RAW .... it's just how my reading schedule was set up but man, oh, man I could not have planned it better if I tried.

Destined to Fall was such a pleasant surprise!  It is the first book I've read by Tamsyn so I went in with zero expectations .... and I was blown away!  The story was light yet had substance.  It was fun and sexy (emphasis on the sexy).  It had just enough turmoil to keep me interested but nothing too over the top to overwhelm me.  It was just what I needed as I came down from RAW.

Destined to Fall is Cassey and Kyler's story.  Their attraction is instant but crossing that line is off limits .... he is her boss' son and they are assigned to work on a big project together.  Kyler's dad is fond and protective of Cassey and has told his son "hands off" as well.  They can't deny their feelings though .... they agree to a "no strings attached" arrangement which lasts all of five minutes before they begin to fall in love.

Cassey and Kyler are such likable characters.  Even though Kyler is a man whore before he meets Cassey, he morphs into the perfect book boyfriend along the way.  Cassey's best friend Quinn steals the show at times and is just another reason I fell in love with this book.  Their new love is tested though when Cassey's past threatens her new life, the life she's worked so hard to build for herself.   Kyler's life brings additional challenges for them to face as well.  When they have to rely on more than passion can their relationship pass the test?

I so recommend this stand alone book to anyone looking for a sassy, fun and sexy read!

* I received an Advance Readers Copy of this book so I did not review the final, edited version.
