Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling Sweet Home series, comes Sweet Fall; a tale of heartache, beating the odds, and finding strength in the most unlikeliest of places.

We all have secrets.

Secrets well buried.

Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.

Lexington "Lexi" Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family, and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve.

When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, finds herself falling straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year's NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves, and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no other choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law - until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track.

But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman - a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

Can two troubled souls find a lasting peace together? Or will they finally succumb to the demons threatening to destroy them?

    Story
    "Digs Deep Into the Emotions"
    Where does Sweet Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As an audio, it was not the best I've listened to, but the story being told is probably one of the best reads of the year for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that the author was not afraid to go there with her heroine or her hero. Anorexia isn't pretty and neither is gang life and living poor. The author didn't glamorize or tuck either neatly under the rug. They love each other and see the real thing just as their friends accept them seeing the real deal. And this pair achieve, fail, and try again. I loved all that.


    Have you listened to any of Stephanie Bentley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time with her as a narrator. I enjoyed her performance overall and would definitely listened to more of her work. I thought her male voices were less distinct and her voice for Austin's mother wasn't quite matching up with how the story described her, but it wasn't bad.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh, wow, there were several. I needed a box of tissues for nearly half of this book. I think each time Austin and Lexi tried to get through to each other were the big moments for me. He'd ask her why she hid behind her face make-up and she'd ask him what it was about all the tattoos. Each time, it was a moment of truth.


    Any additional comments?

    This is book three in the Sweet Home series and book one in the Carillo Boys series. This story runs parallel to Sweet Home and I felt that it worked best if read after that one so that the references to the friends and certain scenes make better sense and the reader has a better idea of what is going on.

    I received this book free.

    "One of my most favorite books"

    I have always loved the story of Austin & Lexi, the narrator has managed to awesomely bring the book to life. As many times I have read the ebook, I still cried and felt the characters throughout the book. The subjects for the characters in this book are so deep and true, Ms Cole has touched me deeply. ♡
