Colton by Melissa Belle


Colton Wild isn't just the famous football player everyone sees on their television screen.

I met Colton one summer vacation when we lined up on opposite sides of a flag football field. He was the cocky kid with clear blue eyes and a constant smirk. When he picked me up over his shoulder and ran with me the length of the field, I wanted to hate him.

But somehow we were the last two left around the campfire that night. We talked for hours under the stars. And when he kissed me, I didn't want him to stop.

The next morning, I left. I thought I'd never see him again.

And for ten years, I didn't.


Sky Rosewood was the one that got away, the fiery redhead with a temper to match.

It felt like way more than a teenage crush, but what did I know back then? Plus she gave me a fake phone number, not to mention a false last name. I tried everything to find her, but it was like she'd disappeared into the ethers.

Ten years later, I'm out for my morning beach run and I crash into...Sky Rosewood, just before she gets knocked out by an errant wave. I try to be a gentleman and give her mouth to mouth, but she comes to and tells me off, her temper still intact. And so is my crush.

Except now Sky's a woman. A beautiful woman who agrees to give me the right number this time.

I've got my second chance with the woman I never forgot, and there's no way I'm letting her get away again.

Turns out I shouldn't have been so cocky...

Good Book - Just to short. Another 100 pages would have been nice to help tell more details in the story. I still enjoyed Colton's and Sky's story. Just very fast paced and a little hopping around.

Melissa Belle is one of my new favorite authors for a sexy feel-good romantic story. Sky and Colton are two charming characters who intrigued me from page one. Sky is a unique, feisty heroine who comes with a layered backstory, and Colton’s a hot strong hero I can swoon over and want as my new book boyfriend. In my opinion, the way they came together, along with their immediate connection as teenagers, was beautiful. The author does a great job of showing Sky and Colton grow closer and learn to trust in their love for one another as the story unfolds. From their first weekend alone to their road trip, the two characters navigate their new relationship as adults while they unravel past demons along the way. This is a great book if you’re looking for a steamy romantic read that contains a lot more than meets the eye.

Loved, loved, loved this well-written second chance romance! Sky was feisty and smart; her backstory was intriguing and kept my interest throughout. Colton was hot and sweet -- a good man the world could use more of. Together they were passionate and loved each other unconditionally. Recommend.

The author skips over creating a relationship through dialogue with the two main characters by having them know each other from 10 years ago. Then, she writes that they reunite and do nothing more than talk on the phone for a month. The reader gets no insight into what was talked about - we are just supposed to believe they've talked about everything and are now super close. So when they got together, I really didn't feel like I knew anything about them. Also, the female lead is hot and cold. One minute she's totally into Colt and the next she's really scared. I didn't buy it. I just never felt pulled into the book.

I liked the storyline, the plot itself intrigued me. Was a good idea for a book, but couldve been written better. I liked the characters, Colton was amazing. The heroine, however, seemed almost childish more than not, and I was almost wanting to roll my eyes at her skiddishness. All in all, i will read the next in series (Dylan) in hopes that the characters will be more mature.

Great story. Colton and Sky met years ago when they were teens. Both were having a hard summer but they found a spark and really helped each other. But when Colton left with her number and address he found out that she lied. 10 years later they literally run into each other and the appeal is still there but they have a bunch of obstacles to overcome. I liked the story - Colton knew what he wanted and didn't let Sky run. Sky has scars from a horrible childhood and her first response is to run. Together they find a way to an HEA. This is the first book of what looks to be a really fun series about a family of cousins and one best friend. We meet them here but not much more and I look forward to learning more. (I voluntarily read an ARC).

Second chance...4.5 stars I love second chance romances and this one is sweet and will tug at your heartstrings. Colton Wild and Skylar Rosewood have a history together. They met one summer when they were teenagers on Skylar’s last day of vacation while camping in Colorado. That amazing one night together of comforting and sharing feelings would affect these two into adulthood. Colton never forgot the sassy-mouth girl he met that summer. A chance meeting on a Malibu beach, Colton runs into Skylar attempting to get the attention of a famous artist. She’s a TV journalist and as Colton happens to know the artist, he helps her get the interview. Colton Wild is in pro football with the Cougars, but Skylar avoids anything to do with sports. The attraction between Colton and Skylar is stronger than ever, but Skylar is wary and skittish. The way she feels about Colton overwhelm her. Colton knows Skylar is hiding behind a secret but doesn’t force the issue. He wants Skylar on her terms and however will make her feel comfortable. I just love the patience he shows Skylar. Your heart will break when you find out the truth about Skylar’s past. I love this story of reconnection and second chance. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

OMG what an amazing start to a new series. I loved Colton and how great he is for Sky. Colton and Sly met as teenagers very briefly. When their paths cross again ten years later the connection is still there, even stronger than ever but Sky has a lot of scars from her childhood that make it hard for her to trust and love. Colton is just what she needs, if she can trust in it. The author does a great job of slowly revealing Sky's past without repeating anything. We also get a really good glimpse at the other Wild boys. Cannot wait to read their stories. Best book I've read in a while and I read a lot of books. I was hooked from the first page to the last.
