Review: Can’t Help Falling in Love by Erika Kelly

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas…

The moment Beckett O’Neill retires from professional sports, he swears off schedules and commitments. His new gig has him hopping from one exotic location to the next. No strings, no responsibilities. Nothing that will tie him down.

At least not until a chance encounter with the woman who stole his heart for a night in Vegas delivers the shock of a lifetime. He’s got a five-year-old daughter, one who believes wholeheartedly she’s a fairy. What’s he supposed to do with that? It’s not like he even knows what being a good father looks like.

Life didn’t go exactly as Coco Cavanaugh planned. Her big dreams of launching a business are derailed when a one-night stand with a charming stranger results in a surprise pregnancy. As a single mom, she manages to find a happy balance raising her adorable and hilarious little girl, while mastering the art of chocolate-making. It’s a good, safe life. One she’s proud of.

When fate brings them together again, Coco remembers exactly why she fell into bed with the irresistible Beckett. But she’s not that free-spirited girl anymore. And his jet-setting lifestyle isn’t conducive to raising a child.

Is this a second chance at another one-night stand or the beginning of something real?

They’re everything he never wanted.

And he’s everything she didn’t think they needed.

There is nothing better than a good cliché story with substance. The latest in A Calamity Fall series is a one night  in good old Vegas that turns into something quite special. This story plays on the modern  lifestyle that many readers can relate to in some way  at first but becomes something much more as the story unfolds and we follow the journey of the leads .  Beckett our hero  lives in that space as an influencer   risking his life for thrills and spills. Until his life crashes to ground , when everything comes to light and his past comes back to haunts him.

From the prologue  there was something about these two.  Kelly wrote a conniving connection between these two in that  one night. A connection that could  be more if given the chance and it takes six years to come back to that  connection but it worth it. Older and wise, Coco has made her life  in Calamity Falls and is happy with her daughter. Yet there still the nagging thought that she can’t find Poise’s father and tell them the truth

Until they literally collide together by chance and their story is entwined once again. However the past and present seem be stuck together. This book is a standalone and a journey that you don’t want to put done.

Coco has her insecurities and is the mature one out of the relationship. She did her free spirit  portion of life   and grew up .  Beckett on the other hand is a mess, he has his moment that make you want to question everything in this story.  Poise was the glue that kept them going , a reason to explore a relationship of any kind.  As the story unfolded and we went on their journey, you can’t help fall for the sweet honest moments that drive this novel.  Yes it has is sexual moments that drive up the heat. But this relationship is about the discovery, the growth and finding your way.

The one thing that stood out to me is that Beckett maybe that guy who said he wanted to be a free spirit and no attachments. He truly wanted what he was hiding away from. He was masking the pain and this story was his second chance. A chance to fall in love and be accept flaws and all. To be love unconditionally despite the past that haunts him. It’s  a story that touches the heart and goes places you never expect. It’s a  HEA story that was deserved and truly reflects this family.
