Overview

The three beautiful words a man longs to hear from a woman…Teach me tonight.

When tomboy sports reporter Charli Beaumonde loses a dream TV job because she’s not girly enough for primetime, she’s determined to land a big scoop and prove her boss made a mistake. But when she gets too close to a football scandal and finds her life threatened, Charli accepts an offer from family friend Grant Waters to hide out at his place—even if Grant predicts nothing but trouble from his buddy’s hard-headed, uncompromising, irrepressible, younger sister. There’s one more problem…

Grant’s “place” is The Ranch, a BDSM resort in Texas, and he’s used to being in charge —even if that means trying to keep Charli in line. But much to Grant’s surprise, she’s intrigued—even envious—of his trainees. They’re the epitome of what she’s never been: sexy, beguiling, and totally irresistible to a man. Still, Grant doesn’t believe for a minute that the sharp-tongued Charli has it in her to be anyone’s submissive. But Charli’s already on her knees vying for the chance to prove that even the Master can be wrong sometimes.

    Wow, I've never read any of Roni's books before and jumping in o

    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.

    This is the best of the series in my opinion! 

    When I start a book, I always go in with very high expectations, as I am sure you do, too. I expect the author to create characters that I cannot only believe in, but hopefully relate to, one way or another. I expect them to create a setting that I can close my eyes and imagine myself in. I expect stories that wrap me up and take me inside them. I also expect to develop a bond with the characters, for however long the story is. Having said that, the question now is, did Mrs. Loren successfully meet my expectations with Fall Into You the third in her Loving On the Edge series? ABSOLUTELY!
    Charli was a lot like looking into a mirror for me. I wont go into all of the “what does she mean?” here, but in all of my reading of books, no heroine seemed to smack me between the eyes like Charli. She is a seemingly tough as nails woman who has to come face to face with some inner doubts, and there is no one who is better suited to accept the challenge that is Charli than Grant Waters. 
    Grant is the –in my opinion- greatest type of hero. He is former military. Former CIA. Successful businessman. Unflinchingly dominant with his sexual desires. And, underneath his rough and ready cowboy exterior, a softie when it comes to love. Grant is more than willing and able to take Charli on.
    The story revolves around Grants vineyard slash secret BDSM club that is outside of Dallas, Texas city limits. Yes, we have vineyards out here. Yes, as Charli’s character is investigating, we love our football here in Texas. No, I have yet to find anything like Grant –um, his club, here in the Dallas area (but I am still searching). Ms. Loren creates such a beautiful image of these grounds on her pages that you can almost feel the Texas breeze in the air.
    This story is, ultimately, a revelation about both characters. It is steamy, sexually charged, exciting, and real. What a great story to introduce 2013 with!
    Although this is the third in a series, it can be read alone, but why would you want to? Do I adore this series? YES! Would I recommend it to you? YES! What are you waiting for? You know you want to…

    I can't get enough of this series. I look forward to the future books. Ms. Loren's characters are so real and true. The women are strong and the men are vulnerable. A true really good story with smoking hot naughty bits. Totally addicted. This series blows 50 shades and Bared out of the water. So much better.

    Grant has it all going for him, a successful ranch, good friends

    Grant has it all going for him, a successful ranch, good friends, and a blazing hot side business. The only thing he is missing in his secret world of BDSM is his sub. No matter how many girls he interviews; he still can’t seem to find one that “sparks” his interest. That is until he meets Charli. Of course she is everything but submissive, or so he thinks, and now that he has seen all she has to offer he finds himself sharing more of himself than he likes. Finding a way to break down his ten foot wall and overcome the pain held deep within will be anything but easy and he only has two weeks to do it or risk losing Charli forever.

    Charli is a tomboy to the core. Raised by her father and extremely overprotective brother no one could blame her. She is one of the guys and refuses to ever believe otherwise even if she is dying to be one of the girls. Pushing forward she puts everything into her career and an extremely dangerous assignment that lands her right in the arms of Grant and in the middle of a entirely different world. She is sexy here, wanted, desired, but most of all she feels like the Charli she never thought she could be. It wasn’t easy, but this 6’4” cowboy has made her feel every bit the woman that she is and falling was all too easy; but how could he ever love her back. She knew his past was painful and finding out his secrets made it only a thousand times harder. Now she has two weeks to change his mind or leave her heart in Texas.

    Charli may come off as a tomboy but that doesn’t seem to sway the way Grant sees her at all. From the first moment he saves her all he can think about is her and that amazing body. Especially, when he realizes the attraction is mutual. Of course Charli didn’t have any idea what she was getting into but her stubbornness is a perfect match for Grant’s and once she calls his bluff the fall begins.

    Being almost six feet, myself, it made this book a thousand times better for me. What woman doesn’t like to feel dainty and precious? Throw in a cowboys mind set and some serious sexy and you have one amazing male lead. Of course having all of that you have to mix in some southern sarcasm and that is where Charli comes in. This book was amazingly sexy with love right in the middle. I cannot wait to read more.

    Sexy Yet Suspenseful With Fully Fleshed-Out Characters

    Roni Loren has done it again! Perfectly balanced suspense and some HOT BDSM-play in a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat from start to finish while keeping your eyes on the verge of tears from the emotional baggage these characters carry.

    In the previous books in this series Grant was that suave yet mysterious owner of The Ranch where the elite come to explore BDSM in secret. He was tantalizingly sexy and charming and I couldn't wait to read his story. Now that it's here, I can honestly say it was so worth the wait. Grant, along with running The Ranch, is also the owner of a prosperous winery and a former military man and CIA agent. He's seen a lot of bad things throughout those years, but nothing hurt him more than the death of his wife and child for which he's still torturing himself over. He feels guilty and doesn't think he deserves happiness so he's cut himself off from forming any meaningful connections. He also doesn't want to put his heart on the line again and thus has kept the few relationships he's had very business-like. Meeting Charli awakens his heart and mind and even though he tries to fight it he soon finds himself caught up in her web.

    Charli's always been one of the boys, much to the chagrin of her mother who left her at an early age. She's tough and can take care of herself and she's an incredibly likable heroine. She's always felt like she didn't measure up though, and after losing out on a promotion, she's told she's not girly enough either. Being around Grant definitely brings out her girly side though, along with her newfound submissive side. This leads to some incredibly steamy scenes, and for a reader who doesn't read a lot of BDSM, I found them written in a way that will appeal to the naughty side of us all.

    There's a nice bit of suspense surrounding Charli that's nicely intertwined with their steamy relationship that kept me guessing until the end. Not only is the suspense entertaining but seeing characters from past stories was equally satisfying. It was nice knowing that a couple's HEA extended beyond the final page and being given another tantalizing glimpse of Colby and Kade set my heart racing even faster as I count down the days until their stories are told.

    Fall Into You has me falling further in love with this series and Roni Loren's writing style! These characters are emotionally hurting and seeing them heal brought tears to my eyes. This story was immensely satisfying on every level and I look forward to the next installment in Ms. Loren's sexy and suspenseful series.

    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!

    This book is a great way to start the year! I feel like I have been waiting forever to hear Grant's story and it was worth the wait. I fell more in love with Grant and I absolutely love Charli. I love how tough she is and with the right man she is feminine too. I love the whole Loving on the Edge series and I can’t wait for the next one. If you haven’t read the others yet, I definitely recommend starting at the beginning with Crash into you.

    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!

    I loved this book so much I wanted it to be longer. But that's the problem I have with Roni Loren books, I want them to be much longer.

    Grant is a Dom with a past that keeps him from getting emotionally involved with anyone. Charli is a reporter who's a tomboy. She's on the heels of a hot story that puts her life in danger. Sparks fly when she and Grant get anywhere near each other.

    Highly recommend this book and any of Roni Loren's books.
