Book Review: The Consequences of Falling by Claire Contreras



The Consequence of Falling, a contemporary romance by New York Times Bestselling Author Claire Contreras is Live!


Presley Rose has a sheltered life–she went to the best private school, raised in a McMansion with loving parents. She thought her life was perfection until she was 15. Her parents were divorcing and this obnoxious man who works for her father picks her up–Nathaniel Bradley. Nathaniel has been her father’s pet project ever since. She’s always hearing about how terrific he is. Since Nathaniel is her dad’s pet project, he’s at all her life events. He dad even talks her into attending NYU school of business just like Nathaniel is so that Nathaniel can keep an eye on her. Everything about the man pisses her off.

Presley doesn’t work for her father’s company straight out of college–instead she starts campaigning with her political fiance and then husband. Once he wedded bliss becomes her nightmare, Presley runs back to her father and his company. A company that she hopes to inherit in time. Shortly after starting to work for dear old dad, Nathaniel buys the majority shares of the company making him the largest share holder and part owner of her legacy. Something she’s not happy about. What’s worse the more her life spirals out of control, the more Nathaniel is a rock for her. He listens, holds her when she cries, and even attends baseball games with her and her father.

The moment she needs him most–he’s gone. She’s alone in the hospital with….

The point is she’s completely alone.

Will she forgive him for abandoning her? Can he overcome his own demons to be there for Presley when she needs him most?

What will they do without the most important person in their lives gone?



The list of things I hate is short. Not even my soon-to-be ex-husband is on that list. Nope. I save only the worst of the worst, the crème de la crème, the absolute I cannot even for this list . . .



  1. Black coffee
  2. Rude people
  3. Nathaniel Bradley


Which is why when my father informs me that he’s making Nathaniel Bradley his new business partner, and in turn, my boss, I flip out.


  1. He’s an annoying know-it-all.
  2. He calls me a spoiled princess every chance he gets.
  3. He disapproves of everything I do.


I go into this knowing I’ll hate every second in his presence. Except the longer he’s around, the more I find myself staring at his lips and remembering the one time they were on mine. I randomly find myself looking at his hands and wondering how they’d feel on my skin.

I try to snap out of it, but I guess I’m not as smart as I thought I was. No matter how many times I remind myself of the times I’ve practically thrown myself at him and he’s pushed me away, I keep falling little by little.


I’d always heard that it was a bad idea to mix business with pleasure and if that’s the case, this thing with Nathaniel has demise written all over it.
