Every Time I Fall by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Ryan

“The third installment in this sexy and sizzling Orchid Valley romance series leaves you hot, bothered and wanting more. The standalone story brings you up close and personal with the two main characters; their wants, desires and insecurities all the while intertwining their lives and sexy desires. Abbi’s in love with her brother’s best friend, but she can’t accept the love he’s felt for her all along, not until she learns to love herself.”
