I wanted to give you everything. You were the first girl that I ever wanted to call back. The first girl I was proud to let wear my jersey. The first girl I ever stopped myself from crossing the line with. You were too good for that. Too good for me… I loved you with everything in me.



Debbie's review



4 stars



This is the second book in this series and I could not wait to dig in because that first one ended in a HUGE CLIFFHANGER!!!


This book picked up where the first one left off and right away I was at the edge of my see waiting for all the questions to be answered. I loved the plot twists that the authors threw at me. I few of them I thought were well thought out and really made sense and kept me turning the pages to find out what was going to happen next.


“I know about my gun and the bullet casings. I know Pistol is missing, and I know we’re all in danger.”


“The face that used to bring me peace has been replaced by the haunting reality of one bad decision. My reckless driving didn’t just ruin my girl; it destroyed all of my friends. I can’t believe that a tiny twist of fate could tear apart everything we had.”


The book flowed really well and I loved that you got to be inside Caden’s head and you were able to experience first hand what he went through after the tragic accident. The story felt realistic and the book was written so well I had no problem connecting with all the characters. Loved the chemistry between Caden and Avery otherwise known as….Tangles. Her character was probably my favorite in this book. She said what was on her mind and didn’t take crap from anyone. I loved her spunk.


The book is fast paced and kept me on the edge of my seat. The ending has me sitting here waiting for the next book to be released because I need to what is going to happen next.








When Fall Breaks (#1) – Released: March 5, 2015

Kaitlyn Woodley is a beautiful, determined, high school senior, who embraces her small-town roots and country life. She’s studious, musically gifted, and headed for a successful career in swimming. Aside from a catty group of jealous girls, who taunt her mercilessly, Kaitlyn’s dreams are well within her reach. That is, until she becomes tangled up with the handsome Pistol Black, a rodeo cowboy, who not only turns every girl’s head in the county, but also turns her perfect world upside down. 

Kaitlyn’s overprotective twin brother and best friends, begin to see signs that make them question Pistol’s subtle control over her. As secrets are unveiled, they intervene to save her from a possible path of destruction. To their surprise, when best friend Brody steps in to protect her, newly discovered feelings complicate an already volatile situation. Soon, everything begins to change. Old feelings die, new feelings emerge, and the once beautiful path they had traveled over summer, begins to alter with the season. 

Will Kaitlyn’s closest friends be able to pull her from the destructive path she’s been led to follow? As the winds of time blast through their lives, the loyalty toward their best friend will remain stronger than ever. They are determined to protect her, even if one of them ends up getting hurt in the hunt for safety. One thing is for certain, none of this close group of friends will be left untouched when fall breaks.

She hopes you enjoy reading this story as much as they enjoyed writing it.
