A standalone romance from NYT and USA Today bestselling author Tess Oliver.
It was strange how when things happened, they almost inevitably happened in giant cloud bursts. Grady's death had started the cloud burst, and it had been pouring rain ever since.
I'd spent half my teenage years dreaming about being that girl, the girl who would finally steal the most elusive heart in town but I'd left that life behind--or so I thought.
My life had been feeling pretty damn solid, but somewhere along the way, the ground beneath my feet had softened. And now--now he was there. Like a lightning bolt I never saw coming After years of dreaming, I finally knew what real love felt like, but our relationship was fragile and I feared it would shatter easily.
It seemed she'd never considered the possibility that she was a heartbreaker, that she was the type of girl who could wrap herself around your soul with just her laugh.
Tragedy had reunited us. She had always been in my heart. I'd finally found my way back to the girl I loved, and I didn't want anything to get in the way of that. But my life rarely went the way I wanted.
Kenna Ridley & Caden Stratton have lost someone very close to them, that tragedy brings them both back to their hometown of Mayfair. Its been years since they have seen each other, but the time apart hasn't changed the friendship or connection they share. They are both struggling with how to cope with this shocking loss. They are both also struggling with life decisions and what they want to do in their careers and personal lives. Back together, Kenna & Cade reminisce about growing up together, while learning the new adult versions of each other. They come together to heal, live, and act on feelings they have kept hidden over the years.
Hard Edge is a beautiful book, full of friendship, healing, and learning that you've got live your life to the fullest. Kenna & Cade were so great to read. They are one sexy couple, I love friends to lovers romance's, and Hard Edge did not disappoint. I loved Kenna, she's very relatable, with her being confused about the path her life is going, in what she wants moving forward. She wants to be happy and she has to really dig deep and decided what will make her happy. I also really loved Cade. I said this before, I don't think Tess Oliver hasn't written a male lead that I haven't fallen for. He's cocky, quite, smooth talking, and all around a great character to read about. Like Kenna he's trying to find his way, his happiness.
Beautiful job Tess, like always I'm looking forward to what you bring us next.
