Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! I love celebrating love by reading romance novels and if you caught last week’s post you’ll know I’m a major fan of sweet romance (as in clean/ not steamy) and romantic-comedy books. Today I’m sharing my review on the latest book by Addison Cole ‘The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever.’ Fun fact – she’s one of the 19 authors featured in last week’s blog post. After reading my review don’t forget to check out the giveaway for a chance to win a digital copy of one of her Bayside series novels.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone novel by Addison Cole, the sweet alter-ego of Melissa Foster, known for steamy romance novels. This book is Grace and Reed’s love story and the path that leads to their future together. Filled with drama and life-altering revelations this book is sure to keep you on your toes.
One of the most important themes in this novel is the notion that just because you can do something doesn’t always mean you should and just because you’ve accomplished what you originally set out to achieve doesn’t mean that still has to be want you want now. People are allowed to change and grow in life and it’s okay to recognize that they have new dreams. Bigger isn’t always better and there’s nothing more important than family and love.
“Memories live in our hearts. Whether the physical place or person changes or remains the same makes no difference.”
Another major theme of the novel is the importance of having open communication and allowing people to tell their side of the story because things aren’t always how they seem. Life is short and unpredictable and we shouldn’t waste our time wallowing in past mistakes because it’s never too late to make things right. Love isn’t always easy but it does grow stronger over time and it gives us the courage to move past what can’t be changed to give our hearts a chance to heal.
I truly loved this story and was sorry to see it end. I’m hoping that this is the first in another series because I fell in love with all of the Montgomery crew and would love to see where life takes them next.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
Fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling, and discover the magic of the Montgomerys. The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone novel featuring a fiercely loyal hero and a smart, sassy heroine.
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 Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you’d expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you’re looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Embracing Her Heart, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name.
