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.

Second chance romances are my favorites! This is the second chance for Reed and Gracie. Ok, she goes by Grace now but she is truly a Gracie. As a lot of high schoolers think, she wanted to graduate and follow her dreams. By following those dreams she leaves Reed, the love of her life behind. Reed then leaves town, after swearing he never wants to leave. Fast forward a few years and both Reed and Gracie are back in town, as the same time, and of course, can’t help but feel that attraction and love still between them. I love these two. Their secret high school romance, their living their dreams, and their coming back together. There is no circling each other, no secret rendezvous’ it is just straight out lust, love, and heat between these two. They love each other and they aren’t afraid to show it. Reed tells Gracie to just go with it while showing her that they are meant to be and Gracie is open to going with all that Reed has to offer her. Pick up The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever, it is sweet, it has heat, and it is amazing!

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.

Who doesn't love a second chance romance?! In The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever, Grace Montgomery left for NY to write and produce plays and left behind the only man she'd ever loved because he wasn't willing to leave Oak Falls. Then she found out that he left home about a month after she left. A decade later, she's back in Oak Falls for a few weeks to take a break from her hectic life and to teach a screenplay writing class for her sister. Not expecting to see her ex, Reed Cross, Grace is shocked to wake up at the crack of dawn only to find Reed doing construction on her parents porch! While all the feelings she had for him 10 years ago come rushing back, so do the feelings of hurt and betrayal. Reed couldn't stand to be surrounded by all the memories of his time with Grace after she left for NY so he moved to Michigan and started a business restoring historic buildings. After being betrayed by his current girlfriend with his business partner, Reed sells his half of the partnership and heads back to Oak Falls to work with his uncle. When he sees Grace, he realizes that she's still the only women he's ever loved and he's not willing to lose her again. He'll do whatever it takes to make her realize that what they had is something they could have again if she'd just follow her heart. You can't help but fall in love with all the characters in Addison Cole's stories. Definitely looking forward to reading more about the crazy Montgomery family!

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.

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.

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.

I loved this second chance romance between Grace & Reed. Grace went back home to Oak Falls to unwind, focus on work & to teach a screen writing class at her sister's bookstore. She did not expect to run into her high school sweetheart Reed, working on her family's ranch. Reed had left Oak Falls to work in Michigan but returned home after a falling out with his ex girlfriend & ex business partner, plus his uncle had a heart attack & needed him home. Both have to work on their feelings & deal with their past before they can focus on their future.

Addison Cole’s new “sweet book” is The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever. I really enjoyed the story of Reed and Grace, high school sweethearts who have been separated for the past 10 years. Grace has become a successful producer in NYC and Reed repairs historical homes. Both have come back to Oak Falls for different reasons and find their love has not died. How they work out their issues and find their way back to each other is the basis for this book and makes for a warm and fuzzy read. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and felt happy at the end. What more can you ask for in a book?

Grace and Reed's second chance love story is full of family and emotion. Grace comes home to decompress and reconnects with herself after living several years in NYC and working in the theater business. After a bad breakup and needing to take care of his only family Reed also comes back and for his total surprise Grace literally happens in his life again and it is something that we cannot let go. These two are romantic at heart and their story is so endearing and has so much fun too! The Montgomery clan is full of joy, trouble and scents! A super great book that you will read it without putting it away.

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.
