Author: Emma Nichole
2,465 miles stand between me and the reprieve I need.
One coast to the other: Los Angeles to Savannah.
Only to wade through the reality my career may be ending sooner than I thought.
Instead of bringing the clarity I sought, it leads me to Faith Morgan.
When all is said and done, she may be the reason I keep fighting after all.
496 miles stand between me and the chaos I left behind.
Nashville, Tennessee to Savannah, Georgia.
They say fate is a real thing, but I never believed it until now.
Then this hulking, beautiful stranger showed up at my door by mistake.
Falcon Masen is everything I should avoid, but no matter what I tell myself, no
matter how hard I fight,
I just can’t say no to him.
Welcome to my stop on the release tour for Emma Nichole’s latest in her Own the Skies series, Falcon. This third novel in the series finally brings us Falcon (Marco) Madsen’s story and I was so crazy excited to read this one! After getting some bad news about the state of his body from years of being a professional fighter, Falcon decides to head to Savannah to visit with his sister Nora. Luckily for him, when he arrives, he peeps into the wrong windows and knocks on the wrong door, finding Nora’s neighbor, Faith Morgan. Faith moved to Savannah several years back to escape a nightmare that occurred while she was in college in Tennessee. She’s content with her life and even thinks she’s happy until Falcon shows up at her door. Then, everything changes.
Although starting with Sparrow and Phoenix in the series will help you understand everything going on in Falcon, this book could easily be read as a standalone. Falcon appeared in Nora and Case’s story (Phoenix), but he didn’t really stand out, being that he was a secondary character. But good Lord, he is now my absolute favorite alpha-male in this series! Handsome, sexy, athletic, protective, caring, intelligent… Did I mention sexy??? Take away his ridiculous stubbornness, and Falcon is the complete and total package. As far as Faith, I’m sure she made an appearance in one of the earlier books in the series, but I honestly don’t remember. Like Falcon’s character, Faith is beautiful, caring, sexy, athletic, funny, and like so many of us “real women,” loves to eat (we’re talking barbecue, fried chicken, and so on. With these two main characters, what else could I do but cheer them on from beginning to end?
This third book in the series has proven, once again, the amazing talent that is Emma Nichole. Her characters are relatable, approachable, and feel like someone you would be friends with in real life. She knows how to create an original and unique storyline and splash in the perfect amount of humor, sexy moments, angst, and emotion. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I did not put it down until I had read the very last word. There are references to sexual assault in this novel, so please be aware of a possible trigger, however, I found it relevant, appropriate, and handled wonderfully. The story probably wouldn’t have worked the same without it, so don’t worry that it’s something that is just tossed in for extra conflict.
If you have not yet discovered this talented author, I highly recommend checking out Falcon and the rest of the Own the Skies series. As stated earlier, you certainly don’t need to read the previous installments in the series to enjoy Falcon, but why not get the back story on the secondary characters? I am now a huge fan of Emma Nichole and can’t wait to read more from her in the future!
