Jared “Hammer” Caufield is a former Army Ranger and retired professional MMA champion that had to give up his fighting career due to a knee injury. He is a bad boy through and through, but that doesn’t stop him from craving the sweet little bakery owner, even though he knows she is too good for him…

Bakery owner, Kalista Redford, is a woman who has had a difficult past. She has always struggled with her self-esteem, and her last breakup hasn’t done anything to help improve her opinion of herself. When Kalista finds herself pursued by the dark and dangerous man she has secretly dreamed about, will she be able to follow her heart or will past insecurities threaten to ruin her chance at true love?


Hammer’s Fall by Laurie Roma has all the elements I really love in a story.  A really tough but sweet alpha hero and a strong but sweet heroine I wanted to be.  Hammer is every girl’s dream of the perfect bad boy; he is tattooed, rides a motor cycle, and is built well very nicely to say the least.  He has a tough guy image but under all that he is really just a man looking for the love of his life.   Enter Kalista. She is a baker, and everyone knows the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.  But she is just as sweet as the creations she makes.  I really enjoyed the humor and sizzle this book had to offer.  If I had to say this book had a flaw, I would say I have to say I wanted more.  I really think this is a great introduction to what promises to be a really exciting and fun new series.  I know I will want to read whatever Ms. Roma has out next.  The love, humor, and connection she has to her world and the reader makes her an unforgettable author you just have to read.
