THE FALL Dallas He was the beginning of my heart . . . and the end of it. I was only fifteen years old when he claimed it and twenty when he took it with him. They say what is meant to be will find a way. But when you have changed to the point of no return, how can anything ever be the same? Seven years later, Dean Martin waltzed back into my life in hopes of resuming what THE FALL Dallas He was the beginning of my heart . . . and the end of it. I was only fifteen years old when he claimed it and twenty when he took it with him. They say what is meant to be will find a way. But when you have changed to the point of no return, how can anything ever be the same? Seven years later, Dean Martin waltzed back into my life in hopes of resuming what I had fought so hard to forget, but he was in for a wake-up call. I was no longer the naïve woman he had left . . . and I was no longer his. I met the love of my life and my soul mate when I was fifteen. I knew that; he knew that. He wanted that girl back. I wanted to forget she ever existed. Dean What I thought was my pre-destined path was very much an illusion. Living seven years with regret, I realized too late that I was broken, and that I only had myself to blame. I thought love could wait . . . but it didn’t. We’d had it all those years ago, and then I foolishly left it behind. She was all that mattered. She was all there ever was. There was no life without Dallas, no reason . . . except her. No matter how hard she tried to convince me, I knew I had to once again make her mine, to make her remember . . . the fall. THE MIND We fell in love in a lightning strike, a sudden anomaly in a sea of lost people. He knew right away, yet I was hesitant. I could have never prepared myself for a love like ours. No one could. As a child, I had conjured an amazing story in my mind. It was a story I could retell about a man that would move me like no other; a story about the way we met and how he had swept me off my feet. But, the ending to that fairytale was so far from the reality. No one will want to hear that story now, but for Grant, I will always tell it. THE HEART Jack For the last ten years, I've roamed the globe, captivated by the world around me. I've seen the seven wonders and admired sunsets from every continent. I'd lived and loved and that was enough for me. It would have to be. I was content, satisfied with my collection of experiences . . . until a phone call led me down a road less traveled. If I'd known my fascination would pique and be forever quenched only a few hundred miles from where my curiosity had been born, I may have never set sail. Rose Stripped of the future I'd planned with the love of my life, my family and my career were now all that mattered. I'd lived and loved and that was enough. It would have to be. I struggled to move forward, to discard the part of me that held out hope for my obliterated heart. But I was bred a romantic, so it was easier said than done. The chances of being struck by lightning are 1 in 960,000. The odds of being struck twice are 1 in 9 million. I risked those odds every minute, often cursing the dark sky, praying for static and a rumble of thunder, but it never came. No, that second bolt hit me on a clear day.

    The Fall- 5 stars Kate Stewart excels at writing love stories that are raw and real. Lets face it, love isn’t always pretty and it isn’t always easy. I love her books so much because they portray the more realistic side of love yet still make my romance loving heart happy. The Fall is a fantastic friends to lovers story (the past) and it’s also a beautiful, yet at times angsty, second chance romance (the present). The Mind- 5 stars Kate Stewart just ripped out my heart, then stomped on it for good The Fall- 5 stars Kate Stewart excels at writing love stories that are raw and real.

The Fall is a fantastic friends to lovers story (the past) and it’s also a beautiful, yet at times angsty, second chance romance (the present). The Mind- 5 stars Kate Stewart just ripped out my heart, then stomped on it for good measure. Seriously folks, this one was heartbreaking. It gave me all the feels. But let me tell you something- I loved every minute of it. It wasn’t an easy book to read, but I’m happy I picked it up. After reading The Fall, I needed Rose and Grant’s story. This novella should be read after The Fall. It’s also a prequel to Rose’s book coming out soon. I don’t even know how I’m going to get through that one! The Heart- 5 stars When I heard the main characters in this book were named Jack and Rose, I was sold already. I mean, come on. How much more epic can you get? Still, after reading The Mind I was equal parts nervous and excited for this. I loved Rose. I loved Rose and Grant so much. How in the world could Kate make another man as perfect for Rose as Grant was? Well, guess what? SHE DID IT. Jack Sawyer was as close to perfect as you can get for Rose. I guess you could say lightning struck twice for this well deserving heroine. In conclusion.... This series is a MUST READ! I love ALL THE BOOKS <3

    The Reluctant Romantics are contemporary romance at its best! I simply love every single character in this series. Dallas and Dean shared so much history and their love proved to stand the test of time. Rose loved and lost but finally met her match in Jack. My heart and soul sings with love for Kate Stewart and her prose. So poignant, so raw and so freaking beautiful. Also read my reviews of the books individually. 6+ BadAssDirtyTrueLoveStars

    DNF @ 33% I tried. I was so looking forward to this after reading all the great reviews and I had high hopes after just finishing the Camouflage series which I loved. But I just couldn't get into it. The writing is wonderful but I just couldn't connect with the characters at all and that did me in. I think this is a case of it's me not you. DNF @ 33% I tried.

    Wow So the first book didn’t quite grab me from the start. I thought there was a little too much back and forth between the main couple, each of them having doubts when the other was finally on board. Also, a little too much sexual longing and sex, IMHO. However, the farther I got into it, the more I loved it. There is a lot of love and a lot of loss in this story, and at one point I didn’t think I could read the second or third books. So glad I did. Great writing, and definitely HEAs. Highly rec Wow So the first book didn’t quite grab me from the start.

    This series was EVERYTHING! I love this author soooo much! It’s unreal. I read all of her recent stuff and saw this little beauty on my kindle. I instantly fell in love with Dallas and Dean. Then the second book killed me. That was the book of Rose and Grant. And then the third book was phenomenal! The book about Rose and Jack... hahah Titanic... that it’s all of the family together. I think I read the books in the wrong order because this is a continuation of the book Room 212. The love story of This series was EVERYTHING! I love this author soooo much! It’s unreal.

I’m going to jump right into that one and see for myself where all this loving came from!

    I read and really enjoyed the first book. Things kind of dragged on in the last 1/4; I kept thinking the book was over and then something else would happen. There were a few moments/events that felt tacked on and out of place with the rest of the story. Overall a good read though. I stalled out on reading the second book because I'm still trying to decide if I want to be that sad. I think I'm going to skip it and move on to the third one; it just doesn't seem necessary to read #2. I read and really enjoyed the first book.

    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ This series just reinforces everything I love about Kate Stewart...the love, the angst, the humor, the playlists! I want to live in any world that Kate creates. This series gives you second chances, heartbreaking love and new beginnings. To be loved as completely as Dean, Grant and Jack love would be the greatest gift. You also get to catch up with some old friends, which was a great surprise! I totally recommend this series!

    The Reluctant Romantics box set This was a collection of stories involving Laura and Seth's daughters from the book Room 212. These stories were about 2 strong women not so lucky in love. Some heart breaking times followed by reunions in one form or another. All 3 were sweet, yet sexy reads.

    Loved the characters If you like love with angst this is a perfect series. There is so much to love about these families. I would like to say so much more, but the twists and turns are so much better if you don’t know what is around the corner. I laughed and cried so hard the words blurred on the page. Some love stories, no matter how hard, need to be told.

    Lightning strikes These stories had me laughing and crying, then SOBBING, yet I read on. They were angsty enough and filled with so much real emotion. They sucked me in and I had to know what happened. They were reads that made me feel so much, but did put me back together at the end.

    Wow These stories were amazing reads. But make sure that you have some tissues around!! Each book is about a different couple,but the characters are all related to one another, so you'll see them again in each book. A must read! Wow These stories were amazing reads.

    Great series This set of 3 books were a good fun read. Dallas and Dean book was of second chance love after heartbreak. Rose and Jack book is also second chance after losing your loved one. Both books head up and downs but such great stories in them

    The Fall is my favorite book by Kate Stewart and is probably my favorite book of 2015. This is the story of Dallas and Dean. If you have read the fabulous Room 212, then you have met Dallas's parents Seth and Laura, who had an amazing love story of their own. Let me start by saying that this book is filled with emotions. It will evoke every emotion you can think of when you read it. When you laugh, you will laugh your ass off. When you cry, it will be ugly cries, so have plenty of tissues ready. The Fall is my favorite book by Kate Stewart and is probably my favorite book of 2015. This is the story of Dallas and Dean. If you have read the fabulous Room 212, then you have met Dallas's parents Seth and Laura, who had an amazing love story of their own. Let me start by saying that this book is filled with emotions. It will evoke every emotion you can think of when you read it. When you laugh, you will laugh your ass off. When you cry, it will be ugly cries, so have plenty of tissues ready. You WILL cry. If not, you have no feelings. LOVE....you will fall so hard in love with Dean and Dallas that their friendship, hurt, lust, love, longing and healing will be yours. The Fall is the perfect name for this book because that is exactly what their story is about. The falling in love of Dean and Dallas. The story begins in the present with amazing flashbacks to the past. I'm not going to go into details here because I don't want to give any spoilers, plus you can read the synopsis for a taste of what's to come. This book was beyond five stars for me. The Mind by Kate Stewart will absolutely break you. It is such a beautiful love story that is one that all girls dream of. This is Rose and Grant's story. We first met Rose and Grant in The Fall. I'll fell in love with them then and I fell even harder in this novella. Grant fell in love with Rose the moment he saw her and he pursued her relentlessly, never giving up. You will swoon over him. When Rose fell, she fell hard and fast. Their connection and chemistry will melt you. You really should read The Fall first before you dive into this book. And if you did, you know what's going to happen. Just prepare yourself to be rendered an emotional ugly mess for days. I cried so hard I couldn't catch my breath and I have read this book 3 times. It never gets easier! What is so amazing about Kate Stewart's writing is that she brings all emotions to the surface. As I said, you will ugly cry, but you will also laugh and feel the joy when they fall in love during their whirlwind romance. This book may not be how we want our fairytale to end, but it is real and raw. I will always wonder "what if" but this is only the beginning to Rose's story, not the end. I cannot wait to read The Heart and fall in love all over again. The Mind is well beyond five stars for me! The Heart couldn't be more aptly named. The entire Reluctant Romantic Series will grab you and plant itself in your heart forever and none more than this book. My heart was completely shattered in book 1.5 The Mind. Kate put it back together completely in The Heart. I cannot express how good this book is. My words cannot do it justice. So.... If you're wondering what this book is about you really need to read the first two books, The Fall and The Mind to appreciate just how beautiful this book is. Rose's life is completely shattered and she didn't think it was possible for lightning to strike twice and fall in love again. She wasn't sure she could let her heart be open for heartbreak all over again, let alone somehow diminish her love for Grant. That is until the sexy as sin Cajun came into her life when she wasn't expecting it, yet needed it the most. Jack is the entire package. He absolutely melted my heart. This man is the epitome of swoon worthy hotness. As with all of Kate Stewart's books, you will most definitely laugh and cry. So grab your tissues and get ready for an epic read that will stay with you forever. The Heart is most definitely a 5 star read for me!

    Very seldom do I ever rate every book in a boxed set 5 stars, but every book in this one absolutely earns 5 full stars! ----------- The Fall The Fall is the amazingly written, heartfelt story of Dallas and Dean. Theirs is not your typical hearts and roses love story...boy meets girl, they fall in love, and live happily ever after. No, that would be too simple..and boring. And SO would not be Dallas. She is a strong-willed, opinionated, and beautiful doctor, with a sassy mouth. To paraphrase the boo Very seldom do I ever rate every book in a boxed set 5 stars, but every book in this one absolutely earns 5 full stars! ----------- The Fall The Fall is the amazingly written, heartfelt story of Dallas and Dean. Theirs is not your typical hearts and roses love story...boy meets girl, they fall in love, and live happily ever after. No, that would be too simple..and boring. And SO would not be Dallas. She is a strong-willed, opinionated, and beautiful doctor, with a sassy mouth. To paraphrase the book, Dallas is not an easy woman to love, but Dean knows she is worth it. Dean is a smooth-talking, tall dark, and handsome doctor...and Dallas' first love. Their story has many twists and turns, quite a bit of heartbreak, and the oh so sweet feel of heart-swelling love. Did I mention the passion?? Oh, yes it is also hot as hell!! The Fall is the latest masterpiece from Kate Stewart. To summarize the book in her own words: "You live, you love, you lose. You fall down, and you get back up. That was living." "There is a saying that goes 'Marriage requires falling in love many times with the same person.' I would always look forward to the fall." 5 solid stars! --------------- The Mind After reading The Fall, I was a little hesitant to read this book. After all, I knew how it played out. Did I really want to know more of Grant and Rose's story? I decided I did. What I knew of their story I liked, and I adore Kate's writing...so I jumped in with both feet. I am SO glad I did. This has to be one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking love stories I have ever read. Their love story was one that HAD to be told. Grant was such an amazing man. Everyone that got to know him, loved him. After all of the loss he had suffered in his life, he wasted no time in going after what he wanted...which was Rose. I remember thinking while I read The Fall that the pace of their relationship was crazy fast. But having read it in full, I understand. When lightning strikes, you just know. THE right one has this effect on you like no one else. You can "climb and move mountains". They make you better, "stronger, braver, and like me, the me that I was before the world's shit beat me down." ------------------- The Heart The Heart, yes it's aptly named. I felt this book right there, in the heart, from start to finish. It made me swoon, out right laugh, and cry so hard I couldn't see my Kindle. Although none of her stories are the same, Kate Stewart manages to weave such amazing tales that I am captivated by every story she writes. After Grant how could she create a man worthy of Rose, one that would measure up? I mean, he was perfect! I had no idea how or if she could pull it off...but she did. Jack was also perfect, just in his own way. The Heart is the perfect ending to Rose's story and the series. I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

    Review for all 3 books in this series. The Fall. 5 stars The first book with Dallas and Dean was an all-out angsty romance with smart dialogue with tons of tear-filled moments to savor. Their story is epic and takes us through the course of a childhood love all the way through adult life. The writing is immersive and gives interesting perspective to what could be otherwise be boring medical facts. The Mind. 4 stars By the end of the first book I was convinced of Rose and Grant’s whirlwind insta love Review for all 3 books in this series.

The Mind. 4 stars By the end of the first book I was convinced of Rose and Grant’s whirlwind insta love. But it unraveled for me in book 2 as somehow knowing the details of their story made it seem less possible. The Heart. 5 stars The third book with Rose and Jack was a grabber. Jack was an average guy in general which is what Rose really needed to let her believe in love again.
