Small business owner and financial advisor, Samiyah Manhattan is mourning the death of her six-year marriage when she vows never to trust men again. Alone at a local bar, Samiyah attempts to put her situation in perspective when she is drawn inexorably to the presence of a nearby patron.
Celebrity ex-boxer and heavyweight champion turned business mogul, Jonas Alexander Rose never takes women too seriously. They only attach themselves to him because of his star-studded status. However, when he meets the beautiful Samiyah Manhattan mulling over a mimosa at his favorite bar and grill, Jonas is overwhelmed by the heart throbbing heated attraction, and now he is on a mission to explore this thing called love. But can Jonas break the barrier that Samiyah's put up and is he even ready? Find out if Jonas and Samiyah are a match made in heaven or if they will miss out on their happily ever after in Safe With Me. Book one in the Falling For A Rose Series.
The Falling for a Rose series follows each member of the Rose family as they explore this thing called love. However, each book is just as enjoyable if read as a standalone as it is if read in the series order.

So much happens in this book that you will just keep reading and reading. This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I truly enjoyed how she portrays her characters and drops hints about possible future couples. I’ve got some questions about a few clues that were dropped in this book, but something tells me they will be answered later on in the series.
Samiyah and Jonas are hot. You will need a glass of ice water and a bottle of wine to read this book. Stay tuned for the next book in the series.
