    This was a really cute story. At first, I thought it wasn't going to be good and the chemistry seemed a little off and slow at first, however once I got past about 30% it started really getting somewhere. Liam is a romantic and wants a wife and happy family, which is why you don't quite expect his dominance in the bedroom, but WOW. He has it!! This story was well rounded and great. I didn't care that Jen felt like she had to keep the relationship secret from Kate and Ben, but she kind of explain This was a really cute story.

This is the first book of Erin Cristofoli’s that I have read, and I really enjoyed it. Afraid To Fall is a sweet type of romance, that is spiced up with the hot chemistry and sexy scenes between Jen Weaver and Liam Galloway, the two best friends of Kate and Ben from Starting Over – Book One. Jen Weaver is an Event Planner, who has built her business for the ground up. She’s a dedicated career woman, who unlike her mother, will not be giving up her financial independence for any man. Just so, she has absolutely no tolerance for any kind of relationship. Liam Galloway, on the other hand, is quite envious of the relationship that his friend Ben has with Kate, his fiancée. And Kate’s friend, who is now planning their wedding, is taking up way too much of his imagination. Liam was beautifully written and is the perfect book boyfriend. He wasn’t a soft man, yet he was soft-hearted in his determination to make Jen see that they would work well together. The chemistry between them was intense, and their first time in bed together was H O T. Well, at least until Jen basically wanted to push Liam off then up sticks and leave! Whoa, he’d barely even flushed the toilet! How can a relationship work when only one person wants it. When only one person wants to be public, and makes all the plans, all the effort. How about when the other person believes that romantic success means occupational sacrifice. Sometimes, what you perceive as the truth when you are a child, is the total opposite of what actually happened. Lesson to learn, never assume and always communicate. I loved it, read it in one day, and am very thankful to Erin Cristofoli for allowing us in the Quirky Blind Date Readers Group to read her book with no expectations of a review. 4 Stars.

    Very easy to read love story that contains drama, angst, lots of sexual tension and action. But, for me, it lacked a bit of depth in not only the storyline but in the characters as well.

    I liked this story. I loved Liam, but for awhile there my thoughts on Jen was that she was a bitch. I had a hard time liking her character. Liam really liked Jen and cared for her. Jen was more of a friends with benefits, and when Liam wanted more she freaked out, and left Liam. In my option Liam deserved better, and when Jen finally gets her head on straight it was almost to late. By the end of the book I started to like her.

Now, he just needs to convince the cute wedding planner that maybe they have more in common than just being friends with the wedding couple.

I do plan on going back to see how not only Liam and Jen met but to read the fully story on Ben and Kate

Because each book is about a different couple, they can be read as a stand-alone. What the story is about. Afraid to Fall tells the story of Jennifer Weaver. Jennifer is a wedding planner, who is focused on creating a successful business; as a result she has no wish to be involved in a committed relationship. A committed relationship meant sacrificing her dream of success for love, something, which she could ill afford. However, she would struggle with her choices, when she was forced to work closely with the best man when planning her best friend’s wedding. Liam Galloway wants to settle down with right woman. This desire intensified when he saw how happy his best friend was in his relationship. Working closely with Jen and getting to know her made him realise they were perfect for each other if only he could convince her of that fact. Will Jen recognise that falling in love does not mean giving up her career, and can Liam convince her he is worth the fall? What I Enjoyed I loved how the author sprinkled humour throughout the pages of the story. There were time I laughed at the antics of the characters. I enjoyed their banter and how they reacted to each other. Jen’s initial actions towards Liam aptly reflected her fears of being involved in a committed relationship. I liked that the story was narrated from dual point of views. Readers are given both Jen and Liam’s perspective about the development of the events. This is my favourite narration. As it enable me to gain insight into their emotions and made me privy to their thoughts. I was pleased with the role the secondary characters played. They were supportive and always willing to help. Even though this was not Kate and Benjamin’s story, their love for each other shined through. It was easy to see why Liam and Jen desired a similar experience. It also made me curious to learn more about them. The issues I had. Based on how the story unfolded it was evident they met from the previous installment. Not having read book one I am unable to determine the extent of the history between them. I felt I was missing something as it relates to the attraction that existed between them. As a result, I had a hard time accepting the reality of their feelings. Their back-story was non-existent making it difficult for me to understand what drove Liam's need for dominance and why he desperately wanted a committed relationship with Jen. Sometimes I thought he was a little too pushy and demanding. I had an idea as to the reason behind Jen's commitment phobia; however, I do not believe it was justified. She never took the time to explore and discover the reason for her mom's decision. Doing so would, I believed, have saved her the unnecessary stress. I thought the relationship between the characters lacked substance. The foundation of their relationship was established based on physical attraction with not much thought given to the emotional aspect. As a result, I had a hard time accepting the reality of their relationship. I though Jen was being silly in her decision to keep her relationship with Liam secret. I found her reasons to be unacceptable. What did it matter who knew they were involved, but I guess her insecurities played a huge role in her decision? The constant push and pull on Jen’s part annoyed me. Her actions demonstrated her indecisiveness. Conclusion/Recommendation Overall, I found this to be an ok read. It did not wow me, but it was enough to keep me entertained. If you enjoy sizzling romances, then you can try this book.

    Afraid To Fall by Erin Cristofoli is a witty, light hearted book that takes the usual story of being afraid to commit and adds a slight twist. Jen's sole focus is on her work, on the business that she has created and is building to be a success. She doesn't want for anything in her life and couldn't be happier. Even more so when her best friend announces her engagement and asked Jen to help plan it all, including the stag and hen parties with the help of the best man.

Even more so when her best friend announces her engagement and asked Jen to help plan it all, including the stag and hen parties with the help of the best man. Liam has been drawn to Jen since he first met her. And yet no matter how hard he tries to get close to her she seems to do everything she can to keep him at arms length. He is sure he can find a way to change her mind and convince her that them being together is exactly as it should be. With passions running high, and old insecurities coming to light, Jen and Liam have a choice: they can either fight for the love that is growing between them, or they can choose to walk away from what could be the best thing to ever happen to either of them. This book is the second in the series and I would recommend reading them in order. Although standalone stories there is character development that you miss by just reading this book. That being said it was a good book, and enjoyable even without book 1. He characters were well written and I liked that for once it wasn't the guy who was afraid to commit. A very well done book and an author I will be looking into more.

    This was a cute read. Being the second book in the series I suggest reading the first book to get back story in the wedding that the main characters were planing. There isn't too much drama so that made it a feel good story with a little drama in the back story. Liam was sweet and blunt which was a real draw. I liked Jen. Yes she had her issues but at the same time she was easy to relate too. The story was fast paced and I loved the wedding planning aspect that brought theses characters together This was a cute read.

    Afraid to Fall is a sweet romance story about Jen and Liam. Jen is an event planner. She loves to plan events and weddings, for everyone but herself, of course. Liam is determined to make Jen his, he just has to be smart about how he goes about it. Their back and forth keeps you reading! This is book 2 in the series, but can be read as a standalone with no problems.
