Solomon Sanders doesn’t have time to fall in love. Until a stunning, skittish, single mother forces him to pause and recognize just how empty and hollow his busy life has become.

From the start, it’s been ingrained in Solo’s DNA to fight.

Fight for what he believes is right.

Fight for the people he loves.

Fight for the traces of good in a place which tends to be filled with a variety of bad.

Fight for survival, so at some point, his life will quiet down and find a normal pace.

He wasn’t ready for the impact his secretive, shy, obviously out of place new neighbor was going to have on him. And never in a million years was he prepared to fall head over heels for her and her young daughter.

Now, he’s facing the most important, and the hardest fight he’s ever fought… the battle to win Orley’s damaged heart.

Orley Vincent’s heart is full of fear, leaving no space for love. Until a big, brash, brawler of a man forces his way in and makes her realize facing her fears is the only way she can ever be free.

From the start, Orley was groomed to believe she wasn’t good enough.

She wasn’t the perfect daughter. Or student. Or girlfriend.

But, she has always been the best mother she could be to her daughter, Noble.

Keeping Noble safe has always been the one thing she was determined to do, which ironically, is how she ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, living next door to an unlikely hero. Orley’s a woman on the run. She had no idea her frantic sprint was going to land her in the tattooed arms of a man ready to teach her how to fight for herself… and for love.


Jay Crownover is an incredible author and one of my favorites because of the unique way she manages to create worlds that readers never want to leave! She brings us back to the Point with a brand new cast of characters and a few familiar faces that you might recognize. Of course if you haven’t had an opportunity to read Welcome to the Point and The Breaking Point series yet don’t fret because you can still totally enjoy every moment of this story without them!

Downfall is Solomon “Solo” Sanders and Orley Vincent’s story, but I feel that sweet little Nobel Vincent stole the show! They come from two different worlds…Solo has lived in the Point his entire life and Orley’s running from the gates that have kept her captive her entire life. He’s perfectly content with his life and has no plans of getting involved with anyone until this beautiful woman and her little girl move in next door. She doesn’t belong there and it’s easy to recognize that. Suddenly he’s their protector and will do anything to protect them…no matter the cost.

This was a breathtakingly captivating, sexy and heartwarming story with suspense intertwined throughout each page. My heart is still beating in overdrive after devouring this amazing read and it’s certainly one of my favorite reads of 2019! Jay Crownover is an extraordinarily talented author and she never disappoints when it comes to her storytelling ability! I strongly recommend picking up this book right now!
