Wow, I've never read any of Roni's books before and jumping in on the 3rd book of a series made me a little nervous but I fell in love with not only the story and the characters but the author's writing as well. I'm assuming that each of the books in the series can be read as a stand alone. However, looking back and reading the synopsis' for the previous books, I realized that some previous characters make appearances in this story. So even though you don't have to read the previous books, it would still be fun to see the older characters making cameos in the future books.

Grant owns not only a winery but a BDSM resort on his property. He not only runs these two establishments but also trains subs and then finds them a matching dom. However, he hasn't taken on a trainee in months and no matter how hard he looks, he's unable to find one that he is willing to take on. That is... until Charli. One night after meeting a source on a huge scandal that she's working on uncovering, Charli is run off the road on the way back to her house. Luckily for her, she crashes not far from Grant's property. They've never met each other but Grant used to serve in the military with Charli's brother where he took a bullet and saved Grant's life. When he realizes who Charli is, he quickly tries to put the breaks on his lust. There is no way he is going to seduce the little sister of the man who saved his life.

Charli is a great character. She is a stubborn tomboy by nature and isn't overly girly. She isn't afraid to say what's on her mind and she curses like a sailor. She knows her lack of femininity is what effects her from getting dates but it is who she is. So when she's staying on Grant's property waiting for the smoke to blow over, she follows him onto the resort property and finds herself being mistaken for a trainee and thrown in a "class" learning how to kneel and be a better submissive. It isn't until that point that she decides that she wants to change a little bit and become more demure. However, once Grant takes her on as his trainee, she finds that she likes being a sub and not only that but particularly Grant's sub. But their training session has a 2 week expiration date and once everything dies down with the scandal, she will be back to her old life.

Grant is as alpha as one can be. He's not only a Dom but he's THE Dom. He runs the BDSM resort. He trains subs to pass onto their future Doms and everyone knows not to challenge him. When he meets Charli he is torn. He is highly attracted to her but there is no way he can repay the man who saved his life by seducing his younger sister. However, when he finds Charli in the beginners class and she tells him that she wants to be his trainee, the wheels start turning. At first he thinks that she will bow out the first time he lets his Dom side out but not only does she not yell out the safe word, she responds to his Dom nature. Pretty soon he finds himself battling his past. He's never kissed a woman since his wife, who was brutally murdered in front of him... until Charli. He's never wanted any of his trainee's to stay with him until Charli. And he sure as heck has never been jealous over a trainee until Charli. But regardless, he feels like if he lets Charli into his life he will be pissing on the memory of his wife and that is something that he refuses to do.

If you can't tell already, I really loved these characters. They were so complex and had issues of their own but they also had revelations as well. You have Charli who goes from a outspoken tomboy to a demure submissive and Grant who goes from a bullheaded Dom to a loving and caring gentleman. I liked that the author wrote the book in both Grant and Charli's perspective. It was interesting to see Grant's thought process when it came to his Dom nature, since I am fairly new to the subject. The characters in this story reminded me a lot of Master of the Mountain by Cherise Sinclair. You have a Dom with a painful past who runs a kinky resort and takes on a woman who is new to the culture and brings out the sub in her. If you are a fan of Sinclair's than you will love this book. I personally can't wait to go back and read the previous books in this series. I will be impatiently waiting for the next books to come out.

I'd also like to say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover. I'm a cover snob, I will be the first to admit it and I love that this book doesn't scream BDSM or even Romance. The author didn't take the easy route and go with a sexy couple dry humping on the cover. So I'm able to take it to work and the doctors office without people looking at me like I'm a perv. There is also a sexy shower scene in the story, so this cover isn't totally out of place either. I love the anonymity of it while still keeping true to the story.

    Holy hotness cowboy - I knew Grant¿s book was going to be except

    Holy hotness cowboy - I knew Grant’s book was going to be exceptional and sexy as hell, but factor in the raw emotion and suspense, and it was simply phenomenal!  This is a must read for fans of erotic romance!




    Ever since meeting Grant Waters in Crash Into You, I knew I had to have his story.  His character was enigmatic, supremely dominant, sexy as sin and completely broken.  After living through a horribly tragic past, Grant closes himself off to everyone - including his family.  He throws himself into his work, at the winery and the club, and leads a very lonely life.  His story was truly heart wrenching to read but his transformation was breathtaking.  Charli storms into his world and breaths life into him again.  She opens his eyes and heart and makes him want, but it isn’t without a fight.  He doesn’t go willingly but his struggle is real, genuine, absolutely believable and I loved every minute of it.




    I absolutely loved Charli.   Her character was written extremely well with traits that I easily identified with.  She was a steel magnolia who can, and has, persevered through situations that would make lesser women break.  But on the inside, she is not without her own vulnerabilities and self-doubts.  Grant is the perfect match for her and helps her realize, and come to appreciate, the woman that she has always been.




    With Fall Into You, Ms. Loren continues to prove why this is one of my favorite erotic romance series.  She expertly combines fantastic characters, well written stories, burn the pages sex scenes and edge of your seat suspense.  The result - books that are highly anticipated and promptly devoured upon receipt.  Grant & Charli are no exception!

    4.5 STars

    DEFINITELY and WITHOUT A DOUBT my favorite Dom by Roni Loren to date ~Under the Covers

    This is quickly becoming one of my favorite erotic romance series. When I crack open a Roni Loren book I seem to always expect a very sexy read, characters with depth and a storyline that always keeps engaged while being a bit suspenseful. And that’s just sexy suspense done right.

    I often compare this series to Wicked Ties by Shayla Black. It’s a lighter version of BDSM that say the Cherise Sinclairs and Tiffany Reisz of the world, and sometimes that’s just what fits the bill. The great thing about this author is that she ALWAYS does right.

    FALL INTO YOU is no different. It’s hot, it’s sexy, full of alpha Dominant goodness and a thrill of a story. But let me start with the hero, because I have something to say here. Bear with me.

    Grant is the owner of a BDSM club, he’s also a winemaker a down home cowboy. He’s one of the toughest Doms at the club mainly because he doesn’t think he can be in a relationship again because of his past failure at one. So I was reading this and about 30% through a friend of mine tells me to go over to Roni’s blog and see who her inspiration for Grant was… *me running to the website*



    I present you… Blake Shelton. This tiny little fact just increased my enjoyment of this book by like 1000, and I was loving it already. See, I have a bit of a crush on this sexy cowboy.

    *sigh* Where was I? Oh yeah, the book…Do I need to tell you more about Grant? Fine, fine, I will. He’s overprotective, dominant, alpha, take charge, and good with a rope. He’s a successful business man too. He is DEFINITELY and WITHOUT A DOUBT my favorite Dom by Roni Loren to date. Totally puuuuurrrrrr worthy.

    Then we have Charli, the heroine. I loved her from the very beginning. She’s a typical tomboy that doesn’t have the level of confidence because she’s always been a little too plain, a little too tall, a little too flat chested, to get to where she wants in life. This affects her personal life as well as her career. She works for a TV station but they won’t give her a on camera job because she’s not sexy enough.

    So there she goes trying to crack a case and doing some research. This research gets her in some trouble and Grant has to step in to protect her until the heat passes over. Except that she finds herself in the middle of a lot more heat than she thought she could handle. And it’s all about Grant teaching her the ropes…so to speak…in BDSM training.

    Got your attention yet? Although this is a plot that we see time and time again, it worked so well for Ms. Loren because her writing is amazing. She creates characters that you can’t help but fall in love with and a storyline that keeps you turning the pages.

    Definitely one that won’t disappoint you!

    Very hot!! I have enjoyed all the books in this series so far and this latest did not disappoint. What a great way to start the new year!!! I particularly liked how Grant proved that Charli could have the femininity she believed she lacked without losing her sense of self in the process. Roni Loren is definitely on my auto-buy list.

    Roni Loren

    Hot, hot, hot! I've read all of Roni Loren's books but I'm taking away a star for the rape/sodomy fantasy, even though it was consensual of course. The charactetization of Charlotte/Charli was excellent.
