The Consequence of Falling, a contemporary romance

5 SECOND CHANCE CROWNS
Claire Contreras has written one of my favorite novels of hers. It was filled with angst, the hate/love tension in an enemies to lovers romance, and the added bonus of a secondary plot of the heroine and her father. I absolutely fell in love with her words and this story.
Nathaniel and Presley are magic. Claire takes us through the many years that these two have circled each other in similar social circles. Each moment builds up the animosity and hate between these two, but when they reunite as adults, all the walls come falling down. I enjoyed the banter, the obvious chemistry, and the slow fall into love between these two. Presley’s dad also being an important man in Nathaniel’s life added such an interesting dynamic to their relationship. I loved every moment of it.
Presley kind of stole the show about for me. I loved how she has decided to strip the mask she has worn for years and grab her brand new life the way she wants. She was an inspiring character.
This story has absolutely everything. It had the banter between sparring enemies, the chemistry that heats up the kindle with their resistance, and the sweet satisfaction when they give in. What also pushes books from 4 to 5 crowns, though, is when there is an added thematic layer and we see this the re-connection and love between Presley and her father.
The Consequence of Falling is absolutely one of Claire Contreras’s best works. I loved every single moment of falling for these two and watching them finally get that HEA after so many years apart.
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.
