Book & Author Details:
Stealing Home by Harlow Cole
Publication date: 1st August 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
I’ve given up. On my childish dreams.
On getting out of this town. On Love. On him.
I’m barely treading water.
I’m the man with it all.
The pinstriped jersey covering my back garners easy cash, flashy cars and fast women. My gilded name drapes over the city in neon. I have everything. Everything excerpt the thing I crave most. Ashley Foster.
There’s on addiction I never tried to beat.
They say you can never go home again. I’m out to prove them wrong. But what if returning requires facing all the things you destroyed? To what lengths would you go to earn forgiveness?
Would you beg? Would you borrow? Would you steal?
Stealing home is the riskiest move in baseball. But the reward…If it works? Winning her back is a chance I’m finally ready to take.
My pockets are filled with stars. It’s time to follow them home.
This time, I don’t want to steal all her firsts, I want to lay claim on all her lasts.
This is an exceptional conclusion to Ashley and Brayden’s story. The first book in the duet was so strong in its storytelling, that I was fully prepared for this to be an anticlimax.
It wasn’t. Quite the opposite.
The author certainly didn’t let up in the delivery. A wide variety of emotions played out (including a few tears) as I was reading, and I loved every second of it.
The broken boy that Brayden was in book 1 is not in evidence. Instead, we have a man determined to atone for his mistakes. And his plan unfolds beautifully within these pages.
And Ashley? Such a strong female lead. I loved her. Her struggles. Her heart. Her pride.
This is the conclusion this coupling demanded. Beautifully written and truly fabulous to read.
I know I’m gushing. But I make no apology. This book deserves that response.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Interference (St Michaels Duet Book 1)
Harlow Cole is a former journalism student, turned techie, turned mother, who finally decided at age forty-plus what she wants to be if she ever she grows up. Her writing journey first began in sixth grade, when she and her best friend penned boy band fanfiction in an old spiral notebook.
Harlow is a connoisseur of peanut M&Ms, brand-new school supplies and angst-filled love stories that always end happy.
At fifteen, she met her first love. They’ve now been married for twenty years. They reside in suburban Washington, DC, where Harlow moonlights as a taxi driver for their farting beagle and teenage twins. Interference and Stealing Home are her debut novels.
