When you fall in-love it’s forever
If you stumble upon the Abandon Series by Jeannine Colette, you may notice a trend. It appears the angst is derived from characters who are attached or in a relationship. (no spoilers here)
While Crystal Reid is seeking love via online dating, she walks into a random bar and become friends with the bartender, Nate Teller. He appears to live day by day with no worries. Crystal is busy speed dating through the online profiles and Nate is busy dismissing each and every one of them.
He has a secret that keeps himself guarded from getting closer to Crystal. While she is trying to find happily ever after, they both don’t realize how each of them are being drawn to each other. I laughed, I cried and I sniff with a few tears in between the laughter.
Jeannine’s writing is continuously good. A compelling storyteller with a knack for forgiveness, moving forward and embracing the good that comes your way.
When the truth emerges, it’s so heartbreaking it makes you second guess what is sacred and honorable. While Nate is somewhat damage, his world as he knows suddenly stops and he begins to question can he have a new start.
The characters are so true and real, they can step off the pages. The plot was surprising and perfect. The character development created a truckload of revelations. It’s both a deeply emotional and sexy read.
In the end, the family dynamic becomes strange and odd. However, it takes a great writer to pull it off and not make the reader say “Nooo, that is so wrong”

A chance meeting in New York, a romance communicated through music and a choice greater than any love she’s ever known, Emma learns of Asher’s demons and is left to wonder…
Is he here to save her or is he the one who needs saving?
KATHRYN GRAYSON has it all—a beautiful husband, new baby, and a life most women would dream of. But after putting her career on hold for her family, Kathryn sets out to reclaim the woman she once was.
When Kathryn meets her new boss, ALEXANDER ASHER, Manhattan playboy and heir to his family’s fortune, their relationship is heated… and not in a good way. The two are at odds, playing a cat-and-mouse game that has Kathryn pouncing.
Kathryn seeks the comfort of her husband, GABRIEL MONROE, an up-and-coming attorney who seems to have less and less time for his wife as his career takes flight, leaving her dreaming about the days when their love story was a fairy tale.
After a heated argument, a box of Twinkies and a very elaborate display of white roses, Kathryn and Asher call a truce. She unravels a deeper side of him, and they develop a fierce connection that leaves Kathryn wondering what is appropriate… and what is not.
When Kathryn becomes suspicious of Gabriel’s activities, she finds herself alone and far away from home with the charismatic Asher. After a night of drama, honesty, and pure eroticism, Kathryn’s will to stay away from Asher is tempted like never before.
In a battle of self-discovery, Kathryn must choose between them. Both men are devastatingly broken by her actions—and she can only fix one of them. But when she makes her choice, will he even want her after all that’s happened?
