Hunter Dennison has been an overachiever in all aspects of his life. He knows what he wants and goes after it, and he intends to follow suit in his love life with the young and beautiful Molly. His patience is at its last resolve as he waits for her to come of age, but finally the time has arrived, and he prepares to tell Molly how he feels.
What he doesn’t know is that someone else has set their own selfish agenda into motion, wreaking havoc on Hunter’s intentions and his confidence in Molly’s character.
Believing the vicious lies, Hunter veers off his planned path. He finds solace and comfort in another’s arms, never realizing that he leaves in his wake a devastated Molly.
However, fate cannot be fooled.
Now, twenty years later, they both have settled into their own lives in Clearwater Falls. Hunter intends to rectify the past by letting Molly know that she is the one he wants now, just as he had wanted then.
Can passion all these years in the making overcome the weight of regret that they both carry? Or will the price of their previous mistakes leave an insurmountable divide in their chance at forever?
WARNING: Recommended for adult readers (18+) only. Mature themes, strong language, and sexual content.
Finding your true love at such a young age and finding a way to make it work is not an easy thing to do. especially if you are older by three years and legally it could wind you up in some trouble. So you sit back and wait for him/her but when the time comes to finally make something happen, the world shifts and drops out from under you. Years later, you discover it wasn’t exactly the way it should have been but now it seems it is too late.
This book was beautifully written. A touching story of finding the one you want, setting it fee and hoping, just hoping you will find your way back to one another. And just when things seem to turn into a direction of hope for the future, something big happens, something shifts and suddenly you are alone again trying to find a life you thought you once had.
I am almost embarrassed to admit I loved the heartbreak and loss I felt with this book. When these two fell apart before anything even began, I knew that this book was going to cause me emotional turmoil. It did. But by the end, the tears I was crying were not sad tears, but tears because no matter how much time falls in between it’s the ending that counts. You can’t go back and change things from the past, you can only live in the moment and for the future.
You won’t forget what happened when everything went wrong, but the hope for tomorrow is so much stronger, especially when it is something you have wanted for a lifetime. I fell in love with the characters. Though they both did dumb things, I couldn’t help but hope for them. The good doctor lived a lifetime of regrets because of the actions of a jealous girl. But the one thing he gained from it is the most precious of all gifts, his daughter.
Molly lived with her own regrets, never knowing what happened with Hunter all those years ago. But again, walking into the future she has her girls and that is her greatest gift, even if it seems they don’t like or appreciate her.
When these two finally come face to face and confront everything from the past, it is a big moment. But one you are waiting with baited breath to get through. Will it change the future or will it leave them drifting even further apart than they were before?
This is such a heartwarming story filled with second chances and hope. I always feel so lucky when a book like this lands in my lap. It is embraced and well loved. W. Ferraro’s books always just get me right in the soft spot and I can’t help but love them. Taking the Fall is no exception.

I live in New England with my young family. I’m a stay at home mom to two very active children. For all of you who are familiar with the stress of this job, I decided to complete an item on my bucket list and write a book. When I’m not writing, you will find me cooking, reading, shopping or being silly with the kids. In my opinion, one of life’s greatest pleasure is being able to get lost in a book.
