Story 1: Mary & Anthony

Mary has belonged to Anthony since the day she was born. They’ve known each other their whole lives, but he won’t touch her until she says, ‘I Do.’

Their parents' story should have been a cautionary tale, but when Mary finally agrees to Anthony’s proposal, they run away to Vegas to tie the knot.

But what do they do when things don’t go according to plan and they find themselves caught between a Russian sniper and his runaway daughter?

Easy! Lock themselves in a hotel room and pop some cherries!

Story 2: Samuel & Nika

Samuel’s twin sister, Mary, is off to Vegas to marry his best friend, Anthony. Samuel’s heading to Sin City with them to give her away, but trouble in the form of a sneaky brunette stops him dead in his tracks.

Nika’s on the run, and she’s found herself backed into a corner. But she’s been trained on how to defend herself, especially against a big beast like Samuel.

From the first look, he was finished and had no intention of ever letting her go.

(Taking the Fall, #5) Fall into Place is the final chapter in Alexa Riley's Taking the Fall series—and it is a sugary-sweet ending, with not one but two candy-coated stories of Carter, Layla, Saint, and Jeanette's children.

is about the son of Saint and Jeanette—Anthony—and the daughter of Carter and Layla—Mary—who have been together for years and years, since they were children. Inseparable since forever and always, they were made for each other...and never doubt that fact for a moment.

Completely devoted and utterly in love, Anthony and Mary keep their relationship under wraps in fear of her parents' reaction. And because of their secrecy, Anthony refuses to lose his and Mary's virginity to each other...until they're officially a couple, becoming husband and wife once and for all.

But Mary is getting impatient with Anthony's patience between-the-sheets, and Anthony is getting restless with Mary's contentment with their hush-hush relationship—so Story 1 in Fall into Place is the revealing of Anthony and Mary's love, and everything that CUMs afterward. *wink*
"It's not luck, princess. It's fate. You were born for me, and I was born for you."
I liked Anthony and Mary's relationship; how they were born and raised together, and since forever they've been in well as well-and-truly devoted to one another, which was heart-warming and *le sigh* inducing. Their story was adorable, sweet, and swoon-worthy.

is about Mary's twin, and the son of Carter and Layla—Samuel—as well as the daughter of Viktor—Nika. Once Samuel sees a the WANTED picture of Nika, he is captivated and instantly possessive of her. He doesn't know why, but he knows that something inside him is pulled in her direction... it's not about the one-million-dollar bounty that Samuel tracks Nika down and locks her pretty little wrists with handcuffs. Oh, no. It's for himself that he captures her, that he hold her close, that he makes her his in all ways.

Story 2 in Fall into Place is the budding and blooming relationship between Samuel and Nika—and all that follows their instant connection.

Samuel and Nika's relationship might've had a wham-bam-thank-you-maam love and sex—but their story was deeeeeeeeeeply steamy, hot and heavy, rough and hard, but no less sweet and sensual.
He pulls me into his arms, taking my mouth in a hard kiss. I bite his lip, but he just moans and holds me tighter...

Overall, Story 1 and Story 2 in (Taking the Fall, #5) Fall into Place might've lacked in storyline, but it was classic Alexa Riley—and every reason why we read her: insta-love, virgin heroines & Heros, dirty dialogue, kinky sex, and sweet, sweet, romance.
