Genres: Contemporary Romance

Tumble.jpgFrom USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke comes a witty romance about first love and second chances.

After being burned by her dream job in New York City, sports journalist Neely Kimber suddenly finds herself jobless and paying a long-overdue visit to her hometown in Tennessee. Her plan? Relax, reset, and head back up the corporate ladder. There’s just one unexpected step. Neely’s back in Dogwood Lane for barely a day when she sees the man she ran from nine years ago: the bad boy next door who was her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak.

Devoted single dad Dane Madden knows he hurt Neely in the worst way. He’s got a lot to make up for. And as passionate as their reconnection is, it’s a lot to hope for. Having her back in his arms feels so right. But falling in love all over again with a woman who wants to live a world away is bound to go so wrong.

What’s it going to take for Neely to give him—and Dogwood Lane—just one more chance?


Every now and again, I do something stupid, like thinking I’ve signed up to review a book, when I haven’t.  A fairly basic error right? And that’s precisely what happened with Tumble.  Well, I had to rectify that, because I really wanted to read this story.

I’m glad that I sorted myself out, because I’d have missed out on a lovely romance otherwise.  Yes, there is a big, HUGE issue between Neely and Dane.  And, yes, you might have an issue with how Neely moves past it.

But that aside, this is a proper feel good, second chance romance.  At times emotional, at time funny, this was well worth the read.
