Houston, Texas, 1965
When an accident rocks the American Space Department, threatening the race to the moon, the agency is determined to eliminate distractions, including those in the bedroom.
Astronaut Dean Garland, on track to become the first man to walk in space, is fine with putting a temporary hold on his love life. Except the directive comes too late to prevent the biggest distraction of all: Vivian Muller… Garland. But now that he's married, Dean is determined to follow the rules until he makes history with his spacewalk.
Vivy never expected to find herself pregnant or in a shotgun marriage, much less a sexless one. While her new husband might pretend to be perfectly happy sleeping alone, Vivy's never believed in pretending or holding back. She's determined to make her husband fall for her, even if it means bending—or breaking—the rules.
Dean's resolve to keep marriage and work separate hits another serious snag: the suit he's supposed to wear in the killer vacuum of space isn't reliable, and his new father-in-law manufactured it. As Dean unravels the technical problem and Vivy tries to win her husband's love, their hearts and his life hang in the balance.

Free Fall by Genevieve Turner & Emma Barry Fly Me To The Moon #6 Vivian “Vivy” Muller’s laugh drew Major Dean Garland to her side at a party they both were invited to. With little ado they made their escape only to find themselves soon wed to one another as a result of that one night they spent together. Vivy, a wealthy sorority girl, juggles being a student and an astronaut’s wife as she gets to know the quiet man she is married to. Dean finds that the home Vivy has created and her chatter provide something his life was missing. With work tense as he prepares to go up into space and secrets and rules that are impacting his time with Vivy there is often tension between the couple that is stressful to both of them. The way they find their HEA and a true relationship is a joy to read. Vivy is strong and wise and giving with a heart of gold and Dean is so much more than the seemingly cold quiet face he presents to the world. I have to say that this series is one of my favorite ever. It takes me back in time and reminds me of my past. One scene in the book that uses a candle to announce an engagement to sorority sisters reminded me of my own “blow out” when in nursing school. These stories make me feel and care and hope and remember…I love them all! Thank you to the authors for the ARC – this is my honest review. 5 Stars
