4/5 Review: Falling Fast by Tina Wainscott





 
There’s no one Pax Sullivan wants to run into less than Gemma Thornton. Back in high school, she revved his heart more than street racing. But she picked his clean-cut brother over him—only to accuse Blake of an unforgivable crime. Eventually the charges were dropped and Gemma left town, but the hard feelings lingered . . . along with Pax’s gnawing “what-ifs.” Seven years later, just as he quits the police force to open a racetrack, Gemma’s back—and their chemistry is more combustible than ever.

If it were up to her, Gemma would never lay eyes on another Sullivan. She hates them, and they hate her—even Pax, who just so happens to be fixing up her father’s B&B. But the more time she spends with the lean, hard-bodied ex-cop at the inn and on the track, the more Gemma sees that Pax is nothing like his brother. Despite their anguished history, she’s tempted to take their relationship into high gear . . . if she can face the past and risk her heart.
 
**********
 

The second in the Falling Fast series although it stands perfectly on it's own. In this installment we get to know Pax and Gemma - Pax had it bad for Gemma in High School but she chose to date his brother. But, after making allegations of being raped she left town and didn't look back. Her father is involved in an accident and she feels she must come home and keep his B&B going while he recovers.

I found the book a little harder to get into then the first in the series but stick with it and you will enjoy it. It was great to see how Gemma grew while dealing with the issues she left behind and how Pax although he wants not to be he can't find the feelings he has. 

Ms. Wainscott deals with the touchy subject of rape very well and although at times you may think how can they go from hate to love so quickly. Her characters are strong and the plot line keeps moving forward. If you are in the market for a second chance romance this one is worth the time.
