"The last one to fall… 
     Sam Reed is the only brother in the Reed family who hasn’t fallen head over heels in love. He has a promising contract to play professional football, but something is missing. Sam likes to watch cooking shows, snuggle on the couch, and he wants someone to do it with him. But with his go-getter lifestyle, it’s almost impossible to find the time to get to know one woman. That is, until he meets the one who makes him want to change his whole life. 
A fake name and a world of hurt... 
     When Peck was twelve, she was called by a different name, lived with a different family, and had no prospects whatsoever. But now she finds herself the drummer in an all-girl band, makes more money than she ever dreamed possible, and she’s content. Until the day her birth mother shows back up. 
Fame. Fortune. Stardom. Adulation. 
Neither of them wants it. 
They both have it. But can they have more?"

     I love these books. The characters are extremely likable, and real. Peck and Sam are so adorable, they are my favorite couple since Logan and Emily.

I love that Sam calls Peck cupcake, that he's this guy who looks really tough, and loves to bake. The men in this series all look like big tough guys, but they are all so sweet and loving. They bring the meaning to "Don't judge a book by its cover." Sam struggles with choosing between what he wants to do with what he should do. He has an opportunity to play football professionally, he seems to want to, he's good at it. But deep down that's not where his true passion lies. And he desperately wants Peck to trust him with her heart.

Peck just wants to continue playing music with the sisters she found while in the foster system. A few months ago she went on a date or two with Sam, while she likes him, her stutter and the fact that she's not like petite cheerleaders she assumes Sam is used to dating, she pushes him away. But when her birth mother shows up out of the blue asking for money, Sam offers her a safe place to hide while she figures out what to do about the mother that was never around.

I love how they grew closer together through this book. It was sweet most of the time, but there was still a modest level of heat and intimacy in this book. Sam being the last Reed Brother, I am curious to who the next book is about, and I look forward to reading it all the same.
