    Honestly, between the stilted phrasing and the incredible melodrama of ALL of the characters, I just wasn't feeling the lurve on this one. Srsly tho, this h's self esteem was so low that even a doormat would have been about 13,000 feet of elevation for her. The H just did not work for me either, between his inability to question the words of someone who is practically a stranger and yet eminently shagable one hour later (so much for his great luurrrve,) and HIS aptitude for self pitying melodrama, I just think this isn't my cuppa. Plus, I did not get the second chance part - there wasn't much there when they were younger and frankly, 20 years goes by and NO ONE is the same after all that time. It really seems he did not know the h all that well to begin with - So what was there to love all this time? This H definitely needed a reality check but reality must have been in the next universe over. Also, it was really, really skeevy and creepy to have the evil OW going on about how ever many times the H bounced the OW off the love club, he was wishing it was the h instead of the OW. It is bad enough when the H does this, but when the OW does it - well that just needs brain bleach, cookies and multiple doses of Captain Morgan. NOT an image I really wanna reflect on.

    4-4.5 starsHunter Dennison and Molly Sowards had crushes on each other as teens. But then their three year age difference was a big deal and neither was particularly good with expressing their feelings, And due to the actions of someone else, they never really got a chance to admit their feelings. Choices were made that sent their lives spiraling into different directions."Don't take the fall for the mistakes we both made. Don't do that. If you want someone to blame, blame me! Let me carry the burden of regret! Because I do every day!"Now twenty years later, they have matured, have jobs that consume them, and children they love. But they are still not happy, still long for each other, but there are lies and painful history still between them. So many years wasted. So much unsaid. So many misconceptions. So many feelings that they kept bottled up and that kept them apart. But eventually Hunter has to decide whether is it better to forgive and move forward or continue living with the anger of the past. And Molly has to figure out if is is willing to take the risk on being hurt again."Sh** happens. Not everyone is as perfect as you! Give them a break or give them up. The choice is yours, but it is about damn time it is one or the other." She needed to weigh the chance that if things went the way of one of the painful scenarios she couldn't rid her mind of, would she be willing to lose her friend for a non-guaranteed chance at something more?This is a second chance love story twenty years in the making. I enjoyed seeing them take baby steps at reconciling and repairing their bond. But even when they begin to try to move forward and live out their dreams, real life sometimes gets in the way. And even if they want to bury the past, it resurfaces.Can Hunter and Molly get to a place where it is safe to take the fall and know the other will catch them? Or will re-establishing their connection only leave them both heartbroken all over again?I loved Hunter. He is probably the most humble and heartfelt of the Dennison men. Sure he made some mistakes that had repercussions. But he was also caring, charismatic, thoughtful, and kind. He was a good man that had been hurt. He made decisions that led him in certain directions, and was still left dealing with regret, pain, and anger. But once he falls, he falls hard and never truly could let go. He could be a bit quick tempered, but also really sweet and swoony.He was sure that Molly was his fate. And fate always won out, right?Molly was sassy, sweet, and nurturing. But she often lived for others and not herself. She still harbored pain from the past and was also struggling with family problems. She had fears and insecurities and it was hard for her to believe that the boy she crushed on and broke her actually had feelings for her as well. They had a great rapport, undeniable connection, and chemistry, but also a lot of baggage and challenges. They both could be stubborn and hurt each other, but it was usually in reaction to being hurt or perceived self protection. And sometimes going through the pain made the happier times just that much more meaningful. But their lives were complicated and they had more people to worry about than just themselves.It was nice to spend time with his family that we met in Afraid to Fall--his wonderful parents and equally charismatic brothers Gage, Reed, Mason, Casey, sister Bree, adopted brother Jamie, and Gage's wife Delaney. I love the camaraderie and the teasing amongst the family. They all have such strong personalities. The younger kids Sammy and Leah were adorable and her teen daughter Jess was a typical teen. And there was definitely a couple of antagonists that I strongly disliked that caused drama.Overall it was an endearing story of crushes, second chances, friendship, and family. But they suffered through some drama, regrets, pain, and missed opportunities. I am looking forward to more with these colorful characters of Clearwater Falls. I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Taking The FallThis story was gifted to me for an honest review by Net Galley.Hunter Dennison and Molly Sowards have been friends forever. She had the biggest crush on him as a youngster and he followed her for years thinking as soon as she was old enough they would be together. On a weekend home from college with her roommate some vicious lies are told that would change the course of events forever. Hunter now believes things about Molly that are simply not true and he no longer wants a future with her, instead he involves myself with friend Allison. Twenty years later they meet up again when Molly comes home to run the family diner with her two daughters. Hunter is still in town and has visitation with his daughter by the evil Allison. Soon these two star crossed lovers act on their long hidden feelings. Things seem to be going well but Hunter still believes the lies from yesteryear and has never asked Molly if they were true. Molly has a lot on her plate with her older daughter acting out, and the daily running of the restaurant. W. Ferraro does a gread job with this story. The feelings these two characters have for each other are as strong now as they were twenty years ago. Now they are adults and capable of living adults relationships but the wounds from before are still there and need to be addressed. Being older just brings a new set of problems that need to be solved. Molly is still the loving person she was and now she has her two daughters that need her. Hunter is the hunky town doctor now and everyone still loves him. Allison is still the evil roommate she always was and continues to create havoc with everyone.Will these two lovers finally get their happy every after or is it simply too late? Has too much time passed? Are there too many things that can keep them apart now? Only by reading this story can you find these answers. This story was the perfect length and I was eager to turn the pages to get the answers I needed. I would rate this story a 4/5.

    I loved this book just as much as the first one in the series. Again emotional roller coaster and I cried. Hunter has always loved Molly. He never told her cause he was waiting for her to turn 18 and then was told somethings that had him second guessing her. Molly had the biggest crush on Hunter but figured he was always just being nice to her. Molly came home on break from college with a friend. Molly's friend has her own reasons for wanting to spend her break with Molly in her small back water home town. If only Molly knew how wrong everything would go by bringing her friend home with her. Now 20 years later they may get their second chance. Hunter is still holding onto what he was told all those years ago. He is trying to start over again with Molly as just friends. He is finding himself wanting her as more than a friend all over again. Molly doesn't understand what happened all those years ago that made Hunter act differently towards her. Now that Hunter wants to be friends with her again her feelings for him that she has tried to bury are all coming back. She has never stopped loving Hunter. Will Hunter and Molly be able to overcome the lies that were told? Once again in this book there were times I wanted to jump in the book and shake Hunter just like I wanted to shake Gage. So much happens to the characters in this book. I love that you get to read more about Gage and Delaney too. Hunter and Molly both have kids now so that can't just focus on how their relationship makes them feel. They have to worry about how it will affect the kids as well. Molly's youngest daughter and Hunter's daughter get along fantastic. But, Molly's older daughter is going through things as well. Well they get their happily ever after or will life get in the way? I can't wait for the next book in the series. I look forward to reading other books by W. Ferraro.I was given this book in return for an honest review.

    I love second chance romances! Hunter did all he could to make up for his mistakes. But I could not get myself on board with him. I wanted to like him because he was perfect in his once they were reconnected. Hunter was sweet and thoughtful and I can feel the love between the has for Molly now. But I can't get my mind around the fact that he didn't question what he was told. He blindly believed something from someone he barely knew rather than the one he supposedly loved. I don't know if I can move past that. I felt he didn't love and respect Molly enough back then. I understand 20 years is a long time to grow and mature and I believe love is powerful but it can't fix everything. I can't wrap my brain around why he was so quick to believe that crap. Maybe if this was not 20 years but a couple years before they reconnected. But for him to hold onto hurt that he caused...if he was so hurt why not confront her! Why not ask more reliable sources?Molly was a selfless woman with her daughters. Her putting her daughters first is some thing you do expect a mother to do! I just didn't want her to readily accept him back. She forgave him easily and I can accept that and respect that but she fell back into to him quickly. She finally had her chance with him. But to me it didn't feel right. I needed her to demand from him why! Then maybe I can get past it. But I never heard the why other than he was jealous... really?! That's it?!And Allison...I don't understand how someone can be so cruel and be gifted a child. Just blows my mind.This is in no way a reflection on the author. The writing is great and so is the storyline. I just know myself well enough to know that once that bond and trust is broken, it would take more than a nuclear bomb to bring that wall down.

    Reviewed for A Wanton Book Lover BlogHunter Dennison has been in love with Molly since she was a little girl but was waiting until she was 18 to go after her (he is 3 years older). Molly has also been crushing on Hunter forever. Almost perfectly, Molly brings her college roommate home for a visit and makes plan to see Hunter later on the in the evening at a party. Everything comes crashing to a halt when Hunter believes one not so little live about Molly’s behavior at college without bothering to ask her if it was true. Hunter and Molly never connect. Fast forward 20 years to Hunter returning to him home town to work at the hospital and now has a little girl. Molly is now divorced after feeling that she never truly loved her ex-husband the way he deserved; she has a teenage and young daughter and is now running the family restaurant. Hunter and Molly reconnect and but not without a few bumps along the way. Taking the Fall is book 2 of the Dennison series by W. Ferraro. It can be read as a standalone (which I did not knowing there was a previous book). Hunter’s character is dreamy and sexy. Molly is strong and perseveres no matter what happens. The book was well-written and flowed easily. It was a quick read as I read it over 2 days with real-life happening around me. Overall, I enjoyed the book. It was full of romance and had just enough suspense to keep me guessing. Taking the Fall is about getting a second chance at love. I would recommend it and I personally now plan on going back and reading book 1 of the series.

    Hunter and Molly's story is so raw and real. There were so many things that I loved about this book.Their connection to one another has existed since childhood. They both kept their longingness to themselves, and loved from afar. Their age difference was an issue as teenagers.Now adults, life has not necessarily been kind. After a psycho roommate ruins everything they could have always had... They are now trying to co-exist around one another back in their hometown.I love Molly's life in that it is so real. Ferraro pulls no punches. The snotty, self-absorbed teenager and the meek child are so real. Her struggles of a single mom are not fluffed over. I felt for her. The descriptions and actions are so real-life, one can't help but to be connected to her.Hunter's confusion and anger over what he thought went on with Molly are so realistic and believable. You can't help but to wish for him to find a way to move past his broken heart and anger.Lies and truth. That's the biggest part of this story. There are so many morals we could take from it. In the end, this is a story of an undying love. I highly recommend this one, as I tend to do with all of Ferraro's books!

    4.5 Star Review by Jen SkewesTaking the Fall is the second book in the Dennison Family series. I have been a fan of Ms. Ferraro's since reading the Hamden Series, which is her first series. I fell in love with her writing and the characters she creates. In reading that series she gave me Jarod, my fave book boyfriend of Wendy’s. But I must say that Hunter Dennison is a vey close second to Jarod. This is the story of Hunter and Molly and how they have a second chance at love.Hunter and Molly have had crushes on each other since they were younger. For Molly all she could think about was Hunter. She was in love with him at the age of fifteen, or at least what she knew love to be. She hoped that one day her dreams of being with Hunter Dennison would come true and that his feelings for her would be just as strong as hers were for him. Little did Molly know that Hunter loved her from afar. He always made sure he was in the right place at the right time when it came to Molly. He was 18 and she was fifteen but even at that young age she still held his heart. When she reached the age of eighteen he had every intention of revealing his true feelings to her in hopes that she would feel the same and that they would have a future together. But when that moment came for Hunter it was taken away in a split second. Someone got in the way of any chance that these two had to be together. When that moment happened I wanted to slap Hunter and yell at him to pay attention and to put his anger aside for one moment, because if he did he would have realized the truth. He never did get the chance to tell Molly the truth and as he walked away that day he left behind a girl with a broken heart, one that probably matched his own. It’s been twenty years since that moment. Hunter has moved back home recently and every time he sees her, those old feelings come back. In the past twenty years the anger and the pain has never left his side. But as much as he wants to hate her he can’t. Because even though it’s been 20 years and so much has happened in those years, there is one thing that has remained the same, and that is his love for Molly Jensen.Molly was in an unhappy marriage for so long. She has two beautiful daughters that she loves. She didn’t love her husband the way that he deserved to be loved and I think that had everything to do with Hunter Dennison. She tried so hard to escape her feelings for the man that she has loved for so long. But she couldn’t, because even twenty years later just seeing that man does things to her. But the friendship that they once had has been strained and Molly is trying to understand why. They both want each other, they both still have feelings for each other. Will Hunter let a misunderstanding from when they were young get in the way of his second chance with Molly?There was jus something about Hunter Dennison that I loved. Now when he made an irrational decision when he was younger I wanted to slap him for it. But he more than made up for it because he proved over and over again how much he loved Molly. And you see how much pain and hurt he carried around because he did not have her in his life. He was sweet, sexy, caring, and totally swoon worthy. And the relationship with his daughter and the terms of endearment he uses for Molly and his daughter Leah will just melt you. Molly was dealt an unfortunate hand in the sense that she loved a man for so long and I think at one time thought maybe he felt the same way. Only to find out that he didn’t, leaving her with a broken heart. She spent years married to a man she didn’t love and still pined for a man who didn’t want her. Or so she thought. And even now that she has Hunter back in her life she is still afraid of moving too quickly. And I for one cannot blame her. Taking the Fall definitely has some drama and a few moments where my stomach got those knots that we all hate but at the same time love because it just means that you are feeling it all. I loved Hunter despite the stupid mistake that he made years ago. But if there is one person that I despised it was the one person who got in the way of Hunter and Molly’s love. And that was Allison. I honestly did not like that girl and hated the role she still played in Hunter’s life but I understand why it all occurred the way it did. I waited for the moment when the truth would finally come out. Because when it did I wasn’t sure where they would go from there. I was glad that it was resolved early on in their relationship but I honestly thought that Molly’s reaction would have been a bit different. I wanted her to be mad and maybe it’s because I was mad for her. I felt how much she loved Hunter and being in her shoes and losing the man you loved to someone else and for the reasons that it happened just killed me. But that's what I loved about this book, the feelings. I felt it all for these characters. The anger, frustration, the hurt and the pain but I also felt their love and how deep it really was. Things happened for a reason and in the end Molly and Hunter were given their chance at love. If any two people deserved it, it was certainly these two. I loved their connection and how much they loved each other. The fact that their love was still so deep even after all of these years just proves how much they belong together. In the end a few people manned to surprise me and let's talk about the epilogue. Oh My God, I loved it. I had tears in my eyes, happy ones of course. It was just so sweet and amazing. Another fantastic job by Ms. Ferraro. I cannot wait to see which Dennison is next!

    Where do I even begin? This is probably the first book that I have ever connected with in such a profound and meaningful way.Maybe it’s because I can relate to Molly being a single mother, and the way she tries to balance work responsibilities with family responsibilities, and somehow squeeze in time for herself. Or maybe it’s because I can relate to Hunter and the struggles he faced trying to get help for Leah, and then helping her cope on a daily basis with how she thinks and perceives life and people differently. Just everything about this book, from beginning to end, resonated with me. I feel like the authors words spoke directly to me, every single last one. For me this was more than just a love story. It was a positive message, reinforcing the fact that yes, you too can have a happily ever after despite life’s obstacles. I’m just in awe of W. Ferraro’s ability to create such realistic stories with characters that could easily represent the average person. That’s one of the things I enjoy most about her books. She creates worlds one can only dream of being a part of, with characters that feel more like friends or family than works of fiction. Each of her books contains a very important message and Taking the Fall, my favorite book of hers to date, is no exception. Molly and Hunter have always kept their feelings of admiration and fondness a secret. Hunter, being older than Molly, chose to settle for friendship until he could, with good conscience, make a move. Molly, because she never could have imagined that Hunter shared the same thoughts, kept her feelings locked away. Misunderstandings and awful rumors prevented them from exploring their potential…until 20 years later. Molly, now divorced with 2 children still finds herself wondering what went wrong and thinking about what could have been. Hunter, now with a child of his own but never married, still harbors some anger and resentment for behavior and acts he believes Molly committed. The tension around them is thick enough to be cut with a knife, until they finally hash it out and embrace all the emotions they’ve been suppressing. Achieving a Happily Ever After isn’t as easy as that though, they have to work for it and overcome their own personal obstacles and well as the obstacles they share together. Without a doubt I would recommend Taking the Fall and I can only hope you take away the same sentiments from it that I did.

    *Gifted for an honest review* 4 Stars“It was as if he was touching the sun”Oh I liked this, for me it was a fluffy read and one that brings you out of a book funk after reading something heavier. I had read the first Dennison book and was quite taken with these brothers. Nice, clean, wholesome characters that have you champing at the bit so they get their HEA. This is a second chance story of love from afar that isn’t quite destroyed by the meddlesome woman who wants what everyone else has. Or could have had. I liked that it was about older people also although there are a few teenage parts it is all about the latter years.I really enjoyed falling into Hunter and Molly’s story. Aw, seriously my heart pined for them both. And as with the previous Dennison book there is a large onus on family and what it means. The pair eventually get there but not without a few misunderstandings and mishaps along the way. The first love scene is nothing short of beautiful! And this writing keeps up the whole way through. I absolutely adored Hunter’s daughter and paid mind to this autistic traits described throughout the book, after all chicken nuggets are an autistic spectrum food. And Leah brings some heart breaking moments to the story. One thing I felt wasn’t addressed was the conclusion to Bob, and the reader will get what I mean at the end. That vein just seemed to stop and I felt there should have been a conclusion to it. Thoroughly enjoyable and despite liking this it lacked a little edge for me. I predominantly read dark and this really doesn’t fit that category. I do see a reader picking it up and getting absolutely lost in this novel. I would really love to see a story of Leah and Sammy’s friendship going into adulthood; I think it would be fascinating! Worth it and highly recommended!!

    I am HUGE fan of Wendy and her books so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. Taking the Fall is the second in the Dennison series; the first book in the series, Afraid to Fall, was great but this one is my favorite so far. Each book can be read as a standalone but to get a little back story on the characters, (plus because it is awesome) I would recommend reading the first book. Hunter is a doctor in the town’s hospital. He is constantly working long hours and when he’s not he is silently morning the loss of a relationship that could have been but wasn’t due to a big lie. Molly is the owner of Molly’s a restaurant that is a town favorite. Molly also works long hours running the restaurant while trying to deal with 15 and 8 year old daughters. She, just like Hunter, look forward to the days they can catch a glimpse of each other. After finally having enough of the silence, Hunter tries to befriend Molly and rekindle some kind of relationship with her and much to Molly’s surprise, can’t wait to rekindle that friendship if that’s all Hunter is willing to give her. When Molly and Hunter start to grow close, she looks to him for advice on her daughter bringing Hunter back to the past angering him and almost tearing apart the new friendship. After confronting Hunter on his problem, Molly finds out that all those years ago when Hunter chose her roommate over her, they were both being played and manipulated into thinking the worst of each other. With a second chance at love, these two are finding a way to make their relationship work. But with that work comes letting go of the past and these two are having a hard time in doing so. Read Taking the Fall to find out if these two get their HEA’s or if fate has something else in store. A gifted copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review by Vanessa.

He wasn't able to do anything because he was older and she was only 15 so he was waiting for the right time to come.When the time does come to confess everything, the plan doesn't go as planned and destroys everything. Trust is misplaced, lies are told, betrayal happens.Fast forward 20 years, when Hunter is almost 40 and Molly is 37. They both have kids, Molly with 2 & Hunter with 1. Claire is now divorced & Hunter never got married. He came back into down a while back does everything he can to avoid Molly because it brings him pain & he can't stop it from hurting him so much.When the truth comes out, it takes them a while to get over the fact that they had been lied too. Will they overcome everything that happened? You'll have to read it and find out. There was so much emotion while reading this book. I cried at some parts because it just broke my heart & I adored the kids though. They were the light of Molly's & Hunter's life and it was cute to see that the kids meant the world to them. They did whatever they could to make them come first.Thoroughly enjoyed this book by W. Ferraro. Can't wait to read the next one! Visit my Blog & Facebook for more posts!

    If you want to read a book that makes you smile, contains a gorgeous male character, hot sex scenes and also makes your stomach drop because you’re not sure what is going to happen to the character, then Taking the Fall is the book you need to read. It’s also a must read if you like reading about characters who are not in their early 20’s.I first met the Dennison family when I read the first book in the Dennison Series, Afraid to Fall. After finishing that book, I was pleased to note that this book was the beginning of a series. Why? Because I fell in love with Gage and his family. I was also pleased that the next book would be about Hunter, the second Dennison brother.I love W. Ferraro’s writing and I was already a fan of the Hamden series so I knew I was in for a good read when she started the Dennison Series. I wouldn’t call Taking the Fall is a light read, but towards the end I was reading as fast as I could because I was not happy with the events that happened or how the characters were behaving and I really wanted everything to work out. BTW, I’m not telling.Taking the Fall is a standalone just like the first book, Afraid to Fall, but there are characters that are part of both books and, I assume, future books in the Dennison Series. I look forward to reading more about this family.I gave Taking the Fall 5 stars.Written by Karen from A Thousand Lives Book Blog

    This is another hit in the Dennison series!! I truly loved Gage and Delany's book (Afraid to Fall) and have been really looking forward to reading the next. And Wendy did not disappoint. Hunter is the very sexy and yummy doctor and brother of Gage. We did meet Hunter in Gage's book and I was so excited when I learned this was his book. I dove in reading while drinking my morning coffee and didn't stop until I hit the end. Thank goodness I have the luxury of being at home with my kids because I don't think you could have persuaded me to put this one down until I was finished. Molly and Hunter have known each other forever and each have had feelings for the other for just about as long but a huge misunderstanding well not really a misunderstanding but more of a big fat lie told to Hunter sends their lives in different directions. Now present day, Hunter is single dad and Molly is a divorced single mom of 2. They finally have it out and learn what had happened and set on a path to correct it. And it definitely isn't an easy path either, but this book really is the epitome of second chance love. I loved every minute of this book and can't wait to read the next in the series!!

    Favorite Quotes:“Molly, just remember, if being a mother was easy, men could do it.”“So many emotions were rolled into this kiss, and he honestly couldn’t tell you if he meant it to be sweet, seductive, apologetic, mercy-filled, or a last resort.” “I love you Molly. I’ve never known anything close to what I feel for you, and I never want to. You are it for me.”“Now that we are together, I vow to you that I will love you the way you deserve to be loved.”My Review:Those Dennison men are a hot mess, and I want me one! Maybe if I am a good little cougar, Santa will bring me one of my very own next Christmas… I must say, Ms. Ferraro has a knack for writing the angst, which is not my favorite thing in the world, but I recognize her skill none the less. Her stories are well-written and absorbing, and while they squeeze my heart and make me want to look away, I can’t put my kindle down. I am glad each story in the series can stand-alone as I despise cliffhangers, yet I totally appreciate being able to revisit previous characters in subsequent stories. I am curious to see which Dennison brother will be the focus of her next steamy tale, but I humbly beg – please, please, please…less anguish next time. I freely confess that I gravitate to stories with more pleasure than torment, and more contented sighs than tears – just saying…

    Thank you to Author Wendy Ferraro, for giving us another book boyfriend to swoon over. First we had her very hot Hamden men. Seth, Dylan, Wes, and Jarod. And now she makes our heads spin with the Dennison brothers. Oh you are quite the minx Ms. Ferraro, but I love you! And the amazing stories you write for these guys.So back to my review: Taking The Fall is book two in the Dennison Series which features Hunter Dennison. A doctor, A family man, and so in love with Molly. The girl he allowed to get away and be lost to him for twenty years. Now with fate finally giving him a chance to make things right with the only woman who has ever owned his heart, Hunter takes his chance. This story is beautifully written about family, love, the ‘what might have been’ to now getting what your heart desires most. It touches on real subject matter that will pull at your heart, but also open your eyes to something you may have not known before.Wendy is brilliant at what she does. She writes with her heart on her sleeve and delivers the rawest array of emotions for her readers. You will not be disappointed and will wait along with me on the edge of your seat for the next Dennison to arrive. #HappyReading!

    This is an amazing love story about true love lost and found again.. Molly was Hunters future he knew it from a young age but he was older and was waiting for the right time but unfortunately because of one persons jealousy and misunderstandings he doesn't gets the chance and makes some really bad choices... Molly had a crush on Hunter for as long as she could remember but one night while she is home for break from college he up and leaves with her college roommate and things are never the same between them...Now 20 years later both divorced with daughters they have their chance if they can put the past behind them and move forward and create the future they both always wanted with their daughters...This story had me completely sucked in from the beginning,I could not put it down. I was so caught up in the emotions and stories of each of these characters not only Molly & Hunter but the children as well with Molly's oldest Jess going through her teenage rebellion and Hunter's Leah who is autistic and a beautiful girl you can't help but love and want the best for... This book relates to so many true to life difficulties that people deal with everyday..Definite must read if you love heartwarming stories that are true to life....

    I fell in love with Wendy's writing with her HAMDEN series. This is her second series and its just as fabulous!The Dennison men are hot! I didn't think I could love anyone more than older brother Gage, but then Hunter comes along! He is sweet, smart, and sexy as hell. He's an ER doctor who knows how to get you warm in all the right places!Molly is the owner of Clearwater Falls favorite diner. She's a couple of years younger than Hunter, but she's always harbored a secret crush on him. After returning home from college, she married, had her two girls and divorced.Hunter has also always had feelings for Molly, but after being told vicious lies by her college roommate, he turns his back on Molly, believing she's not the girl he thought she was. After Hunter gets some advice from his brother, he decides to finally act on the feelings that have never gone away. I love his determination when he sets his mind on something! The way he wins her over is heart melting.The two have such good chemistry and you just know that they've always belonged together.This book took me through a rollercoaster of emotions, and I enjoyed every second of them.Ive decided to call this series the Delicious Dennison series, and I can't wait to see which DD she brings us next!

    Beauty for beauty...and this was a beauty. W. Ferraro never disappoints me with her men or her books. What I especially love about her stories is that they are people you can relate to. They are not perfect. After all, life gets messy. I like messy at times. We all cannot meet a billionaire with the libido of an 18 year old with money to burn. Twenty years. Twenty years of anger. Twenty years of love lost. Twenty years of regret all come crashing back when Hunter finds his way back into Molly’s life.Molly is divorced, trying to raise her kids and run a restaurant that she lives upstairs from. Hunter is a single Dad trying to keep the peace with his ex even though she packed up and moved hours away with their daughter.Beyond the miscommunications and sabotage (I wanted to choke the crap out of Allison), there is a beautiful story of first love, second chance love and true love all wrapped up with the greatest love of all…family. This story shows you that the family bond is too strong to break, but a love as strong as Hunter and Molly’s will give it a run for its money. I have a feeling Clearwater Falls is going to give Hamden a run for its money. Bring on the rest of the Dennison’s!!

    **Received an ARC in exchange of an honest review**I genuinely enjoyed W. Ferraro's newest release! I enjoyed the story between Hunter and Molly. Hunter Dennsion only had eyes for the beautiful Molly. Waiting for her to become of age he leaves for college. Just when he thinks its time to play his hand and let Molly know his feelings and intentions, he is told ugly lies. Being young and naive, he believes everything he is told and walks away without ever trying to win her affections.Growing up, Molly had the biggest crush on Hunter Dennison. Never believing she was enough to catch his attention other than to be his buddy, she never realizes his feelings.Fast forward twenty years, life happens. Molly is now single, divorced and mom of two girls running the popular diner in Clearwater Falls. Hunter is a single dad of a very special little girl and a very sexy doctor. Friendship sparks into more with these two in very sweet moments. Ferraro is amazing as she guides you through Hunter and Molly's journey of finally finding true love and atonement.A great addition to Ferraro's Dennison Series! I can not wait what her genius mind will come up with next!

    This book moved so many emotions for me. Hunter and Molly's story was one of misleading circumstances. Hunter had always had a crush on Molly and vice versa. Molly was going to tell him one night but never got a chance. Hunter was told awful things about Molly and since he didn't know for sure if it was true, he believed them instead of asking her. Fast forward 20 years later, Molly is divorced with two daughters and running a restaurant. Hunter, is now a doctor with a daughter of his own. They are both back in their hometown and happen to run into one another. Sparks are still flying, the truth finally comes out and Hunter feels awful he believed it all these years. They are determined to make it work this time around. They start to spend time together, bring the kids together and deal with everything. Hunter is truly a wonderful guy and knows how to woo a girl. Molly is scared off when an accidents happens with the kids and breaks it off. Hunter is determined to get his girl back and sets a plan in motion with the kids to win her over. This book was such a joy to read and I can't wait to read more form this series! I guess i need to read Gabe's book as well.

    The second book in the Dennison series. This is Hunter Dennison book. Hunter has had a thing for Molly since she was in high school, but him being older he had to hold his desire until she graduate. But that didn't stop him from looking and taking her in from afar. Hunter decide that when he came back home for a visit her would tell her how he feels. But things don't go quiet the way he thinks. There is something that is stopping for the union to happen. People like and trust is misplace and things are not what they seem to be. They lives go in a different directions. When years later and they both back home what will happen with this pair. Will Hunter learn the truth? Will Molly learn the truth? Is there such a thing if it is to be it will happen? Can you love someone after all these years? What can I say about this book? As always in Wendy Ferraro books once I stared I could not put it down. Hunter is sexy doctor who loves with his entire soul. What I like about this series is that the brothers are so very different but are there to back each other up and help each other whenever need. When you meet Hunter your heart will swoon. I am already for the third book.

    ~Ms. Me28~Taking the Fall is an interesting and intriguing story. It was well written and you can easily feel the characters’ emotions. The way the story started is good and as the story goes, things get interesting. The characters, Molly and Hunter made my heart ache and almost cry. Why I gave 3*, I gave it 3* because there for me, there is something that is a bit (I think) lacking. The book is not for me, sorry... I really wanted to like it, but I sometimes want to tell the heroine to have some balls and do the things that some of the characters deserve for doing things to hurt her. Even though it's not for me, the book is great though. It can bring and feel you emotions that will make you get attached to the story and the characters. It took me days to get over on what I want to do with some of the characters (The bitch in the story) like to throttle the living daylight out of her.. Anyway, W. Ferraro did an amazing job in making this book interesting, intriguing and full emotions. Nice read and I think people who loved this kind of books will love it (full of intense drama that is heart-stopping and emotional).

    Hunter Dennison has been waiting. Waiting for young Molly Sowards to become of age. As far as Hunter is concerned she is his, even if she doesn't know it. Little Molly herself has fallen for the three year older Hunter, but her age 15 to his 18 would never be approved of.4 years later on a college break with her roommate, Molly comes home to visit and is now ready to let Hunter know her feelings. Out of nowhere betrayal occurs leaving Molly crushed.Flash forward to present day. Molly is back home, divorced with two kids, running her hometown restaurant. The small town which she grew up in makes her feel grounded and safe, but she is lonely and it doesn't help that Hunter Dennison has moved back to town. After all these years she has never stopped longing for him, will he ever see how much and return the feelings?We are suckers for long lost love stories and W. Ferraro didn't disappoint. The heartbreak was real and the getting back together was beautiful. It is amazing what misunderstanding can do..all the what if's and missed opportunities. A lovely story that kept us turning the pages.We give it 4.5 sighs.

    Hunter was head over heels for Molly waiting for her to get just a few years older before sharing his feelings for her. When she finally comes home for visit from college, Hunter believes lies about her and rejects her instead of telling Molly how he feels. Molly felt the same way about him and was heartbroken at how things went. Ten years, two marriages, and three kids later they are both back home. They begin as friends and when Hunter finds out the truth about all those years ago he decides to pursue more with her. Molly wants that too, but it torn between her teenage daughter with issues and the future they could share together. It's up to Hunter to show her that everything is possible. I have to admit to wanting to shake both Hunter and Molly at various parts of their story. What the hell is up with him taking the word of someone he just met? Shake one for sure. I absolutely hated one of Molly's solutions to what was happening with her daughter. Shake two. I did however love how Hunter deals with that. So very sweet. I really did enjoy their story.I give Taking The Fall 4 hearts!

    ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. The premise of this story sounded good, I am always a sucker for second chance love stories. However, this one was awkward and cumbersome. The author's wording in parts was strange and the story didn't seem to flow like it should have. I enjoyed the characters and was glad that the misunderstanding was solved earlier on in the book but the plot to me just didn't flow. Hunter Denison seemed like a nice enough guy but I didn't feel like he gave his feelings for Molly "due diligence" when it all came into question. Instead of questioning, he let things tear them apart for years they could have spent together and it was a tad bit frustrating. Molly's character spent years in a not so happy marriage because of the issue that tore them apart and I was saddened by her plight as well as the hoops she seemed to have to jump through to make herself happy and worthy again in her eyes for Hunter. All in all this was an ok book. I wasn't overly excited about it but did like the premise.

    I was gifted a copy of review purposed.I first met Hunter and Molly in Afraid to Fall and I could tell that there was more to their story that I wanted to get into. Boy was I right their story was amazing. It is a story of reconnecting, forgiving, and love.When they were younger Hunter wanted Molly but Molly never thought she was on his radar then the plans Hunter had for them were derailed by a misunderstanding. Fast forward twenty years. They both have created these separate lives in the twenty years that they have been together. Hunter is a doctor and has a daughter, Molly runs the dinner and has two kids of her own. Can they combine these lives and have the relationship that is over twenty years in the making? The journey of these two overcoming the misunderstanding of their past and reconnecting to create a happy future together is magic.W. Ferraro has mastered giving her readers stories that are romantic and heartbreaking.

    This is a second book in a series but you could read it as a standalone. Not sure why you would want to since all of her books are great. She has grown as a writer from her first series and moved on to this new one. The characters are all lovable and she really brings them to life. I love the way W. Ferraro can make you think you are right there watching everything that happens unfold before your eyes. She can actually take you to another place. I felt like I was friends with all of the people in this small town she has created. At times I didn't know if I wanted to slap or hug Hunter and Molly. I loved both of them but at times they were both pigheaded. I felt bad for the lies they were told but also that they both believed them. The story was very touching and a great read. You should get the whole series and fall in love with all the Dennison's just like I have.

    It took me a while to start the book because I didn't think that the prologue that happened 20 years ago would be any good, but it was actually a great insight to what the characters felt for each other so long ago. The four years after that were cringe worthy and stomach rolling. I cursed myself for picking up the book. Hunter was a big dumb ass and made me question if he had anything inside his head.When I reached the present, though I was sucked into the story and I can say that I enjoyed the almost all the story. I honestly couldn't understand why Molly had to break things off with Hunter and why Hunter had to fix the things between them instead of her. Sammy was my favorite person in the book. I hope the next book will be Masson's.
