Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I listened to the book but I felt it was way too predictable. I was rarely surprised about the story.
What will your next listen be?
My next listen is Lesley Pearse ' Forgive Me'
I have read one of her books before and I enjoyed it.
How could the performance have been better?
I am just not into american voices and I guess I did not think about that when I listened to the preview.
If this book were a film would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I just think I have grown out of predictable endings for stories :-)

Another great story by K.A Tucker. I'm sad to see this series end. I'd love more. I'd love more from different characters, but I'm excited to read her new series.
Where does Five Ways to Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
With the combination of the winning story, great characters and excellent narration, Five Ways to Fall is one of the better audios I've listened to.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Five Ways to Fall?
So many memorable moments! There were funny moments when Ben and Reese were teasing each other, or when she took revenge on her ex. I also loved the moments when the two were slowly realizing that they were falling in love.
Which scene was your favorite?
So many! I loved Ben and Reese at his family's orange grove.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh a few times, and I teared-up at the very end. I spent the majority of my time smiling.
Any additional comments?
Great story, great narration. I would listen to Deacon Lee and Elizabeth Louise again in a heartbeat!

Reese is a troubled and trouble-making 21 year-old who takes a trip to Cancun as a step in recovery from a short, painful marriage. She meets Ben, who is on his last day of vacation. Even though Ben is the type to sleep with any female who shows an interest, he is enamored by Reese’s energy, unsocial behavior, and sharp tongue. Reese is estranged from her materialistic mother and accepts the assistance of one of her mother’s exes and past step-father, who puts her to work in his law firm.
Ben and Reese meet again months later as Ben begins his first position as a lawyer in the same firm. Reese’s ex appears back in her life with his new wife and former mistress. Reese is bitter and wants to hurt them as much as they hurt her, which drives much of Reese’s actions through the book. Ben is happy to be entertained by and a participant in Reese’s revenge as long as she understands and accepts his position against commitment.
The last book in a series, “Five Ways to Fall” reads well without reading previous installments. Tucker can write and is particularly good with character development, but isn’t the best storyteller. The plot would have been strengthened by expounding on Reese’s parents and her quest to learn about her father. The performances are well done, but production has a few small problems.
Overall, good escapism and worth a credit.
