Sweet Fall (Sweet Rome #2) (Carillo Boys #1) by Tillie Cole REVIEW

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?

5 un piccolo folleto Stars

Lexi Hart is a cheerleader for the Tide football team, she has returned to the squad after 4 years. She has a secret which she hides beneath her baggy clothes and heavy make up. She’s pretty emo and she constantly fights a voice in her head telling her she needs to reach perfection by not eating, that she needs to be thinner.

Austin Carillo is the heavily tattooed wide receiver on the college football team. Born to Italian parents, he has a strong connection to his Mamma, and his 2 brothers, but when he finds out that his former gang the “Heighters” have recruited his baby brother, he realises he would do anything to protect his family.

When Lexi oversees Austin’s brother doing a drug deal on campus, Austin scares the crap out of her, threatening bad things if she tells a soul. If he gets kicked off the team because of his brother, he won’t be able to step up and get his family the hell out of there.

After discovering his Mamma is dying, Lexi turns out to be the only person he can talk to. He gets close to no-one, but he is drawn to Lexi like a moth to a flame and she sees something in him that helps the voice keep quiet. They share a love of the stars, and meet in secret to share their secrets.

Their story was heartbreaking, I got really emotional and I applaud the author for writing something that was so personal to her. I felt so many emotions reading this book and I fell in love with both characters. Beautiful <3
