After reading Love and Skate, I knew I had to immediately read How it Rolls. It's not often that I love a contemporary romance series so much that I read the sequel. I'm not always a fan of getting that new point of view. This series was definitely an exception.
I LOVED this book! I enjoyed it ten times more than Love and Skate if that's possible :) Lila's writing is so smooth, the story just flows. There aren't any lulls at all. I couldn't stop reading this book.
The characters were the best in this chapter of the series. You still have Nellie and Owen, who I adore. Then you get to know a little more about the Black family.
The superstars of course, were Reed and Falcon. They were richly created characters that you couldn't help but love. I'm in lust with the Black boys, I think. They are just the greatest guys. I admired Reed so much. She was inspiring.
This was a story with so much heart. I recommend you run out and get this series like A.S.A.P.! This new adult contemporary romance series is a must read. Book three, Down 'N' Derby, is about Maddox and I can't wait to see what the third Black brother has in store for us. This is a five glittery star read for all those suckers who love a great romance.

What an exceptional book!!!! I am absolutely in love with Falcon and Reed.
Once I started it, I couldn't read it fast enough and yet I didn't want it to end. This is a beautifully written story about family and friendship, first love, and learning how to be true to yourself.
Lila Felix writes about life with all it's quirkiness, even covering tough topics like homelessness and miscarriage with such honesty and class that it had me laughing and crying... angry and reassured!
Despite the odds, Reed Wolfe is making it, by the skin of her teeth. Her dreams and aspirations will have to wait until she can get on her feet. Because right now she’s homeless and churning on a downward spiral.
Falcon Black is existing. Not living, not thriving, just jutting along a path. When he finds Reed, he can’t resist the urge to help her, lighten her load. But Falcon tends to go overboard, over the line, crossing boundaries he never thought he would and risking her trust in the process.
The Blacks are an amazing family and they love each other with no boundaries... once they all meet Reed, they immediately take to her as well. She is no longer the lost, lonely girl with no family. Now she has all she has ever craved. True love, an amazing family, and some of the best friends a girl could ask for....but can she accept all that has been handed to her or will it be too much, too soon? Will she let her own insecurities keep her from truly accepting the love the Blacks offer?
Will Falcon overwhelm and smother Reed with his good intentions?
All I can say is READ THIS BOOK and find out!!! You will not regret it. Fall in love with all the Blacks...and cry, cuss, and laugh with Reed and Falcon in their journey to find that once in a lifetime, can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of love! You will not be disappointed (:

I took my time with this one. I didn't want to rush through the book and be left crying because it was over. Nope, instead I savored it and swam around in it. Fully clothed of course. Hey this is a clean YA read people. Let’s stay focused here. Anyhow, said it before, guess I am meant to say it again. Felix gets better and better with each book. No two books of hers are the same, and the romance is so very swoon worthy.
Wasn't entirely sure how to feel about a guy who was named Falcon at birth. I mean, yeah it’s a cool nickname and all, but will I be able to take him seriously? And for a parent to actually name him that? Well it’s preposterous. But when that boy steps into this book, everything else is forgotten. Who the flip cares if his name is Falcon, Harry, or Otis. Sure the boy goes a little overboard when it comes to those he loves but that’s just it. He loves. And he loves with his whole heart and soul. Here is a little free advice for you teen girls…when a guy loves like Falcon does…just know that he is a keeper.
And then we have Reed. I flat out adored her. In fact I was looking forward to her scenes so much, I started getting a little antsy when I noticed that each chapter was just Falcon for the first little bit. But then again it is Falcon, so you can't really get turned off by that, can you? Nope. Now back to Reed. I was glad to see that Falcon slowly brought her out of her shell; allowing her to be herself, even if she was withholding some truths from him. She goes from being this timid girl to a semi confident lady just days into their relationship. Reed is not 100% confident in herself, but it is one heck of a start. People can’t help but love her when they meet her. Soon Nellie and her become close and Reed ends up helping her through a very tough time. And yes, it is possible to love Nellie even more in this story too. Girl attached herself to our hearts in LOVE AND SKATE and decided she wasn’t done with us just yet.
Oh yeah, if you know Felix, you know there will be romance. That make-you-weak-in-your-knees romance. The leave-you-breathless-wanting-more romance. That never-wanna-leave-this-bed romance. Oh yeah, sweet romance. And I can never get enough of her mad skills. Lady dishes it out and leaves us readers needing more.
My most favorite parts were the start of each paragraph. They were hilarious and sometimes sad. But I loved them all the same. I looked forward to each chapter knowing I was going to get something totally off the wall. And Felix didn’t disappoint.
Please, please read this book. I promise you will love it to pieces. But if you haven’t read LOVE AND SKATE yet, you will want to. Trust me. And Holy Roller Skates is DOWN N' DERBY gonna be awesome. Just sayin!
She called me a stiff? I think that's worse than when Nellie calls me a square or a suit. I was a suit. And why in the Hell did I care if some girl called me a stiff? She could take her orange hair and stuff it up her...Oh who was I kidding, I wanted to be her hairbrush.
Because whether my eyes were closed or open, he was my dream.
"One why or the other, come back to me, in a month, or a year, when you're old, a haunt in my dreams, an invasion of my sanity, make a way to come back."

Right after I finished book 1 I had to read this one. I wanted to keep the story going that was Nellie & Owen.
With this book I loved how the family was still talked about and you got to see different people in a new light.
I mean what amazing parents we have here that all of their sons are AMAZING men.
They make sure the women they love are taken care of first and the rest will come after that.
We meet Falcon who is Owens younger brother and he seems to have a ton of responsibility on his shoulders.
He never has told his family “no” when they have asked him to do something. He is always there to help out with a lending hand.
Falcon is at work at Nellie’s book store one day and he sees that the new hire she hired needs to fill out “his” paperwork.
Nellie tells him where Reed is, but when Falcon sees Reed, she is definitely not a “he”. It is love at first sight for Falcon.
He had sworn off all women once he and his ex broke it off.
He never thought that he would find the one for him and all it took was one look at Reed and he knew without a doubt that she was the one for him.
Reed has had a rough life. She was orphaned at a young age and thrown into one foster home after the other.
The day she turned 18 she was tossed out on her butt with a little cash and told to have a nice life.
She has been living in her car and landed a job at Nellie’s Book store after she came to sign-up for Derby Try-outs.
Nellie told her she would give her a job. But no one knows she is homeless. It is her secret to keep and no ones to find out.
Once Falcon has set his eyes on Reed, he is doing everything he can to get her to let him in.
He is hoping that she has the same feelings as he does and wants to open her heart and love him.
Reed has had this perception that marriage and love never last. She feels that love & Marriage are destined to be ruined by one thing or another.
Can Falcon show Reed that real love does exist?
Can Reed finally let Falcon in and tell him her secrets from her past?
Can these two world ever find peace and happiness with one another………

“How it Rolls” was just as amazing as “Love and Skate.” Falcon Black is an absolutely one of the most amazing and loveable characters you will come across. He definitely shows how much he cares for Reed and Reed is just as loveable as well. Reed is having a hard time in life and Falcon comes to her rescue when she needs him. This book will definitely make you smile and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a great romance book to read.Was this review helpful?
