Release Day Review! The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever by Addison Cole

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever (Sweet with Heat: Standalone Novel) by Addison Cole
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: February 13, 2019
Publisher: World Literary Press

In The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever…
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone Sweet with Heat novel by Addison Cole. I absolutely loved this second chance romance. Grace and Reed's chemistry was intoxicating. I loved following them through the awkward reuniting stage and right on to the cuteness, not to mention the steamy bits. I loved the country setting too. It all fit. This was one of those stories you could just easily live vicariously through. This author always creates amazing supporting characters too. This one was no different. I'd really like to read some of their stories as well. I love getting lost in these Sweet with Heat novels! This was the perfect Valentine's week story!

The ARC of The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

“I can’t do this here.”
“No hiding from the truth, remember?”
She lowered her voice to a harsh whisper as party goers began gathering around the fire. “I’m not hiding, but I’m not going to air our dirty laundry around all these gossip mongers.”
He put a hand on her lower back, guiding her away from the bonfire. “Then let’s do it in private.”
Unsure if she wanted to lay her heart on the line after all, she glanced up the hill toward the parking area and considered leaving, but how could she? She’d ridden over with Sable, and her sister would need her truck to get herself and all her gear home.
“Come on,” he said, urging her toward the hill with his hand on her back again. “I’ve got a jacket in my truck you can use to keep warm, and we’ll find someplace private to talk.”
Her pulse quickened at the idea of being alone with him, even though she knew once they started talking, her hurt wouldn’t allow for any line crossing. “You’re soaked. Maybe we should do this another time.”
“I’m fine, and we’re doing this now,” he said sternly.
“When did you get so pushy?”
His eyes narrowed. “Since kissing the woman who still sets my world on fire after a freaking decade.”
There was no mistaking the authority in his tone, and heaven help her, because all her loneliest parts were waving surrender flags.
