The Fall of Us; Love in Isolation #5
(Standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: October 11, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Enemies to Lovers/Grumpy-Sunshine Romance

Author: Kennedy Fox

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


This grumpy-sunshine book is top notch!! Tension, chemistry, banter and steamy love, it’s all in here along with an amazing apple orchard and small town characters. I loved this story and it’s the perfect book to curl up and read for fall time.

From the first moment Oakley meets grumpy Finn, the tension between them could be cut with a knife. Their tension, which is actually sizzling chemistry, only gets thicker when they become roommates. Why would that happen when Finn is nothing but a grumpy Gus to Oakley from the onset? Well, little Miss Sunshine steps up and helps him out in his time of need, I’ll leave that wonderful morsel of mystery for you to read, but their new close proximity ups their chemistry one thousand degrees and WOWZA…it is fantastic to watch them grow closer together while falling in love.

However, love is not always easy or straight forward. Oakley lives in California and Finn lives in Vermont. How can they work past the time she’s there to paint her commision and Finn’s entire life is built around his family’s legacy in the orchard? Break my heart.

Every single secondary character is fantastic and I can’t wait to see who all returns in the next interconnected book. Also, the lovely description of Vermont, the orchard and the fall festival, it made me miss everything fall. Can you tell, I adored absolutely everything about this story; the banter, the grumpiness, the steamy, hot love scenes, ALL the fallness, every morsel of every word.
