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.

Claire Contreras has got to be one of my favourite authors! She stirs the emotions in a reader that can leave a lasting impression on your soul. Once again she has done that with me with her new book The Consequence of Falling. I fell in love with each of the characters as I watched them grow, fall in love and how they faced each hurdle in their lives.

I liked that the first few chapters were from different encounters between Presley and Nathaniel, and that they were a few years apart. It showed that there was a connection between them even from a young age. They always seemed to bicker, which was quite amusing, but there was something simmering below the surface that I couldn't wait to see it ignite!

I also liked the way that Presley was repairing her relationship with her father. She was spending time with him and even went to work for him. She expected everything to fall into her lap, but she soon realised she had to work for what she wanted. Nathaniel also had a strong relationship with Presley's father as he had nurtured him from such a young age into the successful businessman that he had become.

As you can tell, I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Presley and Nathaniel were amusing to read about, and it was only a matter of time before they acted on the feelings that they tried to keep buried. They were sizzling together and I could see that Presley gave her heart to Nathaniel. There was a moment where my heart broke for Presley, then it completely shattered as she was forced to endure something on her own. It was truly a remarkable read, that will remain in my heart for a long time to come.

I just loved Nathaniel's possessiveness!

Nathaniel was really close behind me, like probably eye level to my ass.
“Why are you walking so close to me?” I asked without turning around.
“Trying to block these motherfuckers from the perfect view of your perfect ass.”

“It’s okay, princess. I’m not good enough for you. I never was and never will be.” He leaned into me, his lips on my jaw, kissing to my earlobe. “But I want you anyway. And I’ll take you any way I can get you. I’m tired of denying this to myself. I couldn’t handle it before, but I can now.”
