Fall for Me by JC Emery





SYNOPSIS:
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.


My review:
***
I'm on the fence on 3 or 4 stars for this book. I think it's an OK start to a promising series.
Melanie Kincaid starts out funny and flirty with just a bit of awkward to make her super likable. She has a love at first sight moment with Jameson, only he has a girlfriend.
I could have had lots of respect for Jameson if he broke up with his girlfriend at this point instead of dragging Mel along like a dirty secret
At this point, I hate Jameson for being a douche and I lose respect for Mel for "waiting" spend the book back and forth between liking them or hating them.
The stalker element adds excitement to the plot and sets us up for book two and a potential love match for Royal??? The story itself is very entertaining, I just need more romance, less drama, grownups instead of children

EXCERPT:

“You don’t like it,” he says quietly. I don’t miss the disappointment in his voice. I could throw myself at him, wrap my arms around his neck, and never let go. I could climb him like he’s a goddamn tree and I’m a monkey in need of a banana. I could kiss him like my life depends on it— my heart certainly does— and I could regret never telling him any of this if I don’t say it right now. I could tell him every stupid fucking feeling I’m having, and how much this beautiful gold necklace means to me. I could do all of this, but at the end of it, he still wouldn’t be mine. He would still be my friend— assuming I didn’t scare him off— and if he let me do all of this he wouldn’t be the guy I think he is. He wouldn’t be the man I’ve built up in my head as being strong and courageous and worth every painful moment I spend away from him knowing he’s with her and every trying moment I spend with him knowing he’s not mine.

I let the silence hang between us, as uncomfortable as it is, and focus on breathing steadily so he doesn’t know everything that this stupid beautiful necklace means to me.

“I didn’t—,” he begins. I cut him off because after the long stretch of silence it’s all I can do not to lose my shit over a stupid beautiful necklace from a fucking asshole who I think I’m falling in love with.

“A wishbone?” I ask.

“It’s stupid,” he says and reaches for the box. I pull it away from him, cradling it to my chest. “They’re supposed to be symbolic or something. Like you wish on ‘em and… you wish for something you want.” He’s uncomfortable trying to explain it. I know the symbolism behind a wishbone, but I had to hear his explanation.

He wants me to have what I want.

I have everything I want except for one thing: him.


About the author:
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.

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.

The rest of the day passes quickly and then I'm on my way home, when I get in I start preparing dinner so that when Felix comes home his dinner is ready. He likes his dinner to be ready on the table, he doesn't like to wait. We sit down to dinner and there is a silence between us, I decide to say something. "Felix are you ok? You’re very quiet tonight."
He stops eating, puts his knife and fork down and looks me in the eye and says "You looked like a tart today when you were giving the presentation, all the lads were staring, your top was too low!" He sneers at me.
"What? I don't believe you just said that to me, that is so hurtful." I start sobbing. I can't believe he would speak to me that way, he never has before.
"I can't believe you went to an interview dressed like that, of course they’ll give you the job dressed like that, they probably think they can look down your top everyday." He looks so angry.
"It was a lady that interviewed me." I say during sobs. "There is nothing wrong with my top and what gives you the right to say that to me anyway?" Obviously that was the wrong thing to say as he gets up from his chair and strides over to my side of the table, grabs my ponytail and pulls it so hard that I have to look up at him. "YOU are my wife and no one else will look at you with lust in their eyes, only I'm allowed to do that." He lets go of my hair, walks back to his chair, sits down and resumes eating his dinner. I'm sitting there with my mouth open staring at him with tears running down my face. I don't know what to say, so I just sit there. He looks at me then says "Go and wipe your face you look a mess."
I get up from the table, go out of the room to the downstairs toilet and sob silently. What the hell just happened out there? I clean my face, then go and sit back at the table. I'm not hungry now so I just sit there with my head bowed down. I don't want to look at him!
"So babe, tell me about the interview, how did it go?" he says still eating his dinner. Is he serious? "Come on tell me!" he’s starting to shout!
So I tell him about Blue Eye and Helen, the HR Manager and about the three stages of interviews. I tell him I'm really excited about this job and that I loved the company. He sits there nodding his head at me and asking a few questions. "I have another interview with Clifton Associates, a Facilities Company tomorrow, the job looks good too, but I think today's job would be better all round" I say waiting for him to say something.
"Sounds good, let's see what happens, good luck tomorrow" he says. He stands up, puts his plate in the sink and says "I'm going to watch TV" and walks out the room. He's being so weird, normally the two of us would do the dishes and chat about the day and what's ahead for the week.
