Falling Hard Book Review:

In bestselling author Tina Wainscott’s gritty, emotional small-town romance—perfect for fans of Jasinda Wilder and Colleen Hoover—passions run high as a reformed bad boy reconnects with an old enemy . . . and gets her engine revving. There’s no one Pax Sullivan wants to run into less than Gemma Thornton. Back in high school, she revved his heart more than street racing. But she picked his clean-cut brother over him—only to accuse Blake of an unforgivable crime. Eventually the charges were dropped and Gemma left town, but the hard feelings lingered . . . along with Pax’s gnawing “what-ifs.” Seven years later, just as he quits the police force to open a racetrack, Gemma’s back—and their chemistry is more combustible than ever. If it were up to her, Gemma would never lay eyes on another Sullivan. She hates them, and they hate her—even Pax, who just so happens to be fixing up her father’s B&B. But the more time she spends with the lean, hard-bodied ex-cop at the inn and on the track, the more Gemma sees that Pax is nothing like his brother. Despite their anguished history, she’s tempted to take their relationship into high gear . . . if she can face the past and risk her heart. Praise for Falling Hard “An addicting read! Falling Hard is the perfect example of going back home to find yourself, and maybe love, in a world full of second chances.”—New York Times bestselling author Jen McLaughlin “An easy and engaging read, Falling Hard is so much more than a sexy second-chance-at-love story. It’s about being brave enough to take that chance and strong enough to fight for it.”—Wendy S. Marcus, award-winning author of All I Need Is You “Remember that bad boy you told yourself to stay away from—the one who could only lead to no good? Tina Wainscott has a way of luring you back to him and making you wish you’d never let him go.”—Cecy Robson award-winning author of Once Kissed “Tina Wainscott has mastered the second chances trope in the tender and heartwarming Falling Hard. Add a dash of suspense and you get a five-star recipe that kept me nibbling on the pages all day!”—Violetta Rand, author of Loving Lucas “Falling Hard has a powerful message and will absolutely be a book I pick up to read again.”—Carlene Inspired “I love second-chance romance, and when it mixes with a good story line and some good messages . . . Well, I love this book.”—Abby’s Dirty Little Secret “Bottom line, the magnetic chemistry between Pax and Gemma is visceral, making Falling Hard a great romantic read.”—Tome Tender Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

Hard Rain Falling Book Review:

Don Carpenter’s Hard Rain Falling is a tough-as-nails account of being down and out, but never down for good—a Dostoyevskian tale of crime, punishment, and the pursuit of an ever-elusive redemption. The novel follows the adventures of Jack Levitt, an orphaned teenager living off his wits in the fleabag hotels and seedy pool halls of Portland, Oregon. Jack befriends Billy Lancing, a young black runaway and pool hustler extraordinaire. A heist gone wrong gets Jack sent to reform school, from which he emerges embittered by abuse and solitary confinement. In the meantime Billy has joined the middle class—married, fathered a son, acquired a business and a mistress. But neither Jack nor Billy can escape their troubled pasts, and they will meet again in San Quentin before their strange double drama comes to a violent and revelatory end.

Falling Hard Book Review:

In Falling Hard: A Rookie's Year in Boxing, Chris Jones recounts his first year at ringside. He gets dressed down by Don King, gambles his way through Vegas, meets the troubled guy who found Evander Holyfield's ear, goes to Muhammad Ali's birthday party, and witnesses Prince Naseem Hamed explode while Mike Tyson implodes. Like the sport itself, Falling Hard is equal measures of victory and defeat — an intoxicating combination that leaves Jones down for the count more than once. Determined to stay objective, he instead becomes addicted to boxing's special brand of pain, and what begins as a simple curiosity soon escalates into an unhealthy obsession. Jones writes with the rhythm of the sport he covers: hard and fast, with the drama of fiction but the truth of journalism. Sometimes humorous, always suspenseful, Falling Hard is a travelogue for the fight game, boxing distilled to its essence by sportswriting's newest star.

"Former actress Emma Rothschild is partying in Vegas in disguise. But I'm not fooled. Five years ago, I knew that body better than my own, and I haven't forgotten a single detail--not the curve of her hip beneath my hand or the hitch in her breath when I kiss her neck. When Emma's unexpectedly left alone in Sin City, I agree to spend the weekend with her. As friends. Why not? If I can knock down the toughest guys in the NFL, I'm strong enough to keep my hands to myself, even if she is the sexiest woman I've ever met. Emma is part of my past--years so shrouded in secrets that not even my best friends know the truth about who I am. I'm a single dad now and not interested in revisiting my old ways or trying to win back the only woman I ever let close enough to break my heart. But this is Vegas, where all bets are off, and with Emma, nothing ever goes as planned ..."--Back cover.

The Upside of Falling Book Review:

A fun, flirty teen debut from Wattpad phenom Alex Light about a fake relationship and real love. It’s been years since seventeen-year-old Becca Hart believed in true love. But when her former best friend teases her for not having had a boyfriend, Becca impulsively pretends she’s been secretly seeing someone. Brett Wells has it all. As captain of the football team and one of the most popular guys in his school, he should have no problem finding someone to date, but he’s always been more focused on his future than who to bring to prom. When he overhears Becca’s lie, Brett decides to step in and be the mystery guy. It’s the perfect solution: he gets people off his back for not having a meaningful relationship and she can keep up the ruse that she’s got a boyfriend. Acting like the perfect couple isn’t easy, though, especially when you barely know the other person. But with Becca still picking up the pieces from when her world was blown apart years ago and Brett just barely holding his together now, they begin to realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. When the line between what is pretend and what is real begins to blur, they're forced to answer the question: Is this fake romance the realest thing in either of their lives?
