'Falling for the Enemy' by C.M. Steele is book the "Falling" series. This is the story of John Moriarty and Layla Hendricks. I have not yet read the previous book, so for me this was a standalone book.
This is my first book by Ms. Steele and I am so happy I found her. I just loved this book. Yes, it does have 'Instant Love' and somewhat Alpha Male...which are books I love! Also this is a easy fast read that I had to finish in one sitting!
Layla is away at College and trying to keep her bills down so she does not cause to much expense for her brother. Layla worships her brother who is older and step up to be a father figure to her. So she doesn't want to hurt or disappoint him at all.
