Overview

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...

This one is so, so, so good! I actually laughed at myself earlier because once I was about 20% into The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever, I made the connection that this is Addison Cole’s version of Embracing Her Heart, by Melissa Foster. I loved the story then and loved it just as much this time around. Reed and Grace are the epitome of soul mates, true love, chemistry, and everything else wonderful you can associate with those! This book encompasses all of the wonderful things I love about Addison Cole’s writing including the huge element of family, love, fate, and happiness. Reed is so incredibly yummy, sexy, romantic, and sweet that I wish I could just bottle him up! Grace is sweet, beautiful, talented, driven – but also realizes that home is where the heart is and that, like her mother says, dreams and plans can change. Whether you read Addison Cole regularly or haven’t yet made that leap yet, this is a must-read. It’s romantic, sexy, happy, sad, and everything in between. But overall, I was left feeling happy and my heart was full. Bravo to Addison Cole, once again, for her incredible imagination, passion, and ability to connect her characters and her readers.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a nice read for the Montgomery sisters. The connection between the main characters is very strong and noticeable. The romance is sweet and full of chemistry. Grace is a very independent, strong, and determined woman. She went after her dreams and achieved them. Her career is what Grace thought she always wanted. Her family is very close and loving. I loved the different personalities of her sisters and how they interact with each other. Reed loves his aunt and uncle. He would do anything for them, including moving back to his hometown to help his uncle's business. Reed is hard working and fun loving. He seems like a great book boyfriend. Reed has always been in love with Grace. Time apart couldn't change that. After years of pain and heartbreak, their connection is still strong. I kept hoping that distance wouldn't keep them apart. I received this story as an Advance Reader's Copy. I volunteered to leave my review. All opinions are my own.

Great read that had me hooked right from the start. Plus who doesn't like a second chance romance. Grace and Reed parted ways long ago, but now both are back in town for the time being. Those flames of attraction flare up once again. They have the same dilemma Reed is staying in the small town and Grace wants to go back to the city. I liked watching them reconnect. The chemistry is great between the characters. You can feel the connection and emotion between them. One of my favorite things about the book is the Montgomery family. They rib on one another, but you can fell how close knit they are. This is definitely a book you don't want to miss.

I swear I love all Addison Cole's men in her books. And Reed is no exception! He saw Grace again after a decade passed and decided they would be together. He is almost too good to be true. But who would not want a man to be as supportive, in pursuit, loving, and downright sexy! Their story was just beautiful. I loved Grace's realization of what she really wanted out of life and where she wanted to be. Her family is fantastic and I definitely want her sisters' stories. A great start to a new sibling series! I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.I swear I love all Addison Cole's men in her books.

I have been reading Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat books since her first novel. I absolutely love that I can read them and recommend them to church friends who may think other books are too much. Grace Montgomery has always been in the background of other books I've read. I have never really found out much about her until this book. She's a New Yorker in the truest sense of the word, until she is dragged out by her sisters and finds her first love is back in her home town. Suddenly she is back to being the small town girl she tried to outrun. Then, there is Reed. He left town when he had told Gracie, when they were in high school, that he would never leave. Her heading to college left him with nothing but memories of her everywhere. Grace was hurt by his leaving town even though she had left town herself. He moved on somewhat. He now has a broken engagement and a cheating business partner behind him. How the two of them come together as friends is pure poetry. What happens after that is what makes picking up The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever so worth it. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
Living_Life_With_Joy_ More than 1 year ago
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. 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.

Grace and Reed have a history, a "secret" history because they are from rival towns. They broke up years ago when Grace moved out of town so when they both end up back home to help family, all those old feelings resurface. They try to ignore them but the attraction is strong. There's hurt and misunderstanding to work through so they can find their way back to each other. Another hit from Addison Cole! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

Grace Montgomery and Reed Cross have a "secret" history together and suddenly they are back in the same place and both have to acknowledge that their feelings for each other are still present and strong. Throughout the story, Grace and Reed hash out their feelings for each other as they learn that old town rivalries no longer exist between Oak Falls and Meadowside. Throughout their journey to happily ever after, they face many curveballs, including jobs and family. Though it all, Reed and Grace learn what it means to be with true love. This was a great start to what will be a great series, I can't wait for the next book!

What a fun story of second chances! I enjoyed meeting the Montgomery family in this story. Grace is spending a few weeks at her parents for the first time in a lot of years. Most of her siblings still live nearby. Little did she know that Reed, her old boyfriend, was also now living nearby. I enjoyed their second chance at a happily ever after! There is a lot of heart in this book and it was such a fun read that left me feeling good. In addition to Grace and Reed's story, meeting the rest of the family and freinds was really enjoyable. As with her other series, Addison Cole is gifted with building a world with great characters that make you feel a part of the family. I also appreciate the author doesn't do what a lot of other author's do when the main characters have a misunderstanding. So many have one character explode and leave. The characters in these stories work through the issues together. I received an advance copy for an honest review.

Grace Montgomery and Reed Cross, secret high school sweethearts from rival schools, are back in town at the same time after 10 years. Each has become successful at their chosen profession, and Grace is planning on returning to New York in 3 weeks. As soon as they see each other, the old flame ignites for both of them and becomes a raging inferno, and now there is no need for secrecy.... Will their love for each other be enough to keep them together this time? This is a sweet, fun, small town read that I really enjoyed. Look forward to reading more about Gracie's siblings in later books.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is truly an apt description of this book. This beautiful story begins with Grace Montgomery returning home from New York to teach a screenwriting class at her sister Amber’s bookstore. While she is home her parents porch is being rebuilt by her secret high school boyfriend Reed Cross, who has also just returned to town. Grace is angered by running into Reed and wants nothing to do with him. But a chance meeting at a group event allows them to at least talk about their past. And what a past it turns out to be. Addison Cole’s characters truly capture your heart. Reed and Grace follow their hearts and the journey is full of twists and turns. I found this to be an emotional book as I read the touching words of Addison Cole. Definitely a 5 star read.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is my new favorite romance. Addison Cole writes the most amazing stories. The characters are so real I expect to meet them on the street. This is a second chance romance. Reed and Grace are so great together. Don't miss their amazing story.

Reed and Grace were sweethearts back in school. However, they kept their relationship secret due to rival schools. Grace leaves her small town to become something. Reed return to help out an ailing family. Who says you can't have a 2nd chance with your first love. This time around Reed will have no sneaking around. What a fantastic story. Addison Cole NEVER disappoints her readers. This is an amazingly sweet story. A definite must read.
KindleKat64 More than 1 year ago
This is such a sweet and fun second chance romance. I love the author's writing style which is on the sweet not the steamy side, yet still packs the same amazing romantic punch. Grace Montgomery & Reed Cross are a sweet couple and are such wonderfully written and deep characters. There may have been a very long break since they were last together but there is no pretense from either of them when they finally see each other again and soon they begin to build off what they used to have together. I love that, no BS! Neither has ever been able to really move during the years they were apart because they were never able to forget the love they shared. This is a very heartwarming story about two souls clearly meant for each other.

``Love is supposed to grow stronger, not get easier``. At first I didn’t think this story would be that emotional but I should have known; Addison Cole never misses a beat! Young love that was never forgotten. A love story about how much two people can love each other so much that life and years cannot erase how they feel. A powerful story of how a heart can remember the soul that touched it once; how a person can own a piece of another`s heart forever. When you leave something good behind only to discover how amazing it still is years later you`ll never be able to walk away once again. The reality and the tangibility of every single emotions are so well written that I can drown myself in every book that author wrote and relate a little bit to each of her characters. Reed`s story is simply amazing and his love for Grace is so huge it swallows her whole.

Life is a two way street. Hidden in the moments of heartache there's usually always a bright side. We just have to take the time to look. Having seen the rain, Grace and Reed are searching for their individual happy endings. What they find is a chance to have so much more. The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever proves to be a pitstop to Second Chance Highway despite the roadblocks determined to stand in the way. Cole keeps the smiles coming, the hearts glowing and the wisdom flowing.
