I was lucky enough to have received an ARC of Fading Away let me start of by saying WOW Calvin holy hotness we need more of him in the world! Loved this book from the first line to the very end could not put it down!!!

This book is based on Cal and jane journey. They have some big demons to overcome
And secrets that need to be revealed. Calvin always the protector takes his job very serious. One thing we have seen from the previous books is he loves deeply and is not afraid to show it.

I was given an arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Holy friggen cheese and crackers!! I feel like JM Witt out does herself with each book. Just when I think, 'Ok, she can't top that last book'... she does!!

This book continues with Cal and Jane's story. If you read 'Letting Go of You', this book starts with Cal still in the hospital. I love how JM Witt back tracks with each book so we can see into the lives of the different couples.

Cal is protective, by nature, and he is feeling v

*sigh* Cal and Jane.

As much as I love Cassidy and James, I think Jane and Cal are my favorite couple in this series. Though things are definitely not easy for them, it feels like more external circumstances that come at them VS internal with James. It just doesn’t feel as hard for them to be together as it does for Cassidy and James when James is being difficult (putting it gently).

One thing I love about Cal and Jane’s stories (the .5s) is that they run along the same time line as Cassidy and Ja

When secrets intrude can anyone win?
Another 5-star read in this series: Fading Away is well worth the time you’ll spend hidden away to finish it, just like the rest of the Anchored Hearts series.
If you’re following the series, you know that there are two relationships we’re watching: One is flourishing and the other seems to be imploding. Through the changing perspective of the “Letting Go” half and the “Away” half of the Anchored Hearts series we’re treated to both the inner and outer view of b

Jane and Cal' s story continues and we get to witness the immense love they have for each other. Cal' s protective side is at the forefront of everything he does and he proves that he won't allow anything to happen to those he loves. Jane still holds on tight to some secrets and is afraid to reveal them. She is strong and wants to get over her recent trauma, but always at Cal' s side and with his help.

Their scenes together are so full of love, sweetness, and an intense chemistry. Cal can be a sw

This was my first book by Author JM Witt but will not be my last. I enjoyed her way of writing and the way the words just seem to flow from the pages at me. I was so caught up in the book that when I read the last sentences, I needed more. I have to know what is going to happen to James and Cassidy.

The story was focused on the relationship between Cal and Jane. As Cal has proven to Jane that he will take a bullet to save her, will Cal be able to handle all of Jane’s secrets? Is the love

Amazing book with a lot of romance, suspense and heartbreak that will leave you glued to your seat until you finish.

Fading Away is the fourth book in J.M. Witt’s series Anchored Hearts and continues the story of Cal and Jane (the book starts where Hiding Away left off).

Even though Cassidy and James are my favorite characters from this series, I do have a soft spot for Cal and Jane. Cal’s protectiveness of the people he loves is shown numerous times in this book. His support of Jane when she is d

Each book that JM Witt writes is better than the one before. The writing is tighter, the characters develop more layers and the passion is hotter. Throughout her Anchored Hearts series, she has honed her craft well. Fading Away is no exception to her pattern. I will admit, that as much as I like James and Cassidy's story; I have a huge soft spot for Cal. He has it all. He's strong, loyal, fiercely protective and a romantic at heart. Add all that to his sex appeal and you have the perfect man, in ...more

Fading Away is part of the Anchored Hearts series. You should at least read Hiding Away first. If you read Hiding Away, you know we where left with a crazy cliffhanger. Finding Away starts where Hiding Away left off.

Wow, this one starts right off pulling at heart strings. Jane isn't sure how Cal is at first and thinks the worst, I thought the worst too. Cal is an amazing character. Both he and Jane are strong.

Their relationship is not easy and they have added things to deal with in this book. J

Have you ever connected with a series so much that it seems real?.......
The Anchored Hearts series by J.M Witt is that Series for me.
J.M throws twists and turns at you at EVERY blink. The Love between Cal and Jane is impenetrable. Jane's past is still threatening to ruin that happiness, but Cal will do anything to make certain that doesn't happen.
Follow the conclusion of Cal and Jane's story and see if they can finally make it to their Happily ever after........... Or is it NOT meant to be?

I really enjoyed this book I love the romance has a bit of drama and it also has some action only thing is that it felt like deja vu because I had just read the previous book two months ago so It kind of repeats itself just from different characters point of views. But the book still gives you more insight on the other characters and that's what I love I really enjoy reading about Cal and Jane who doesn't like a police officer who is strong very protective of the ones he loves and who is romanti ...more

Cal and Jane!!! Sigh....what to say about a couple that just can't seem to catch a break! They are meant for each other but Jane has skeletons that she isn't ready to let out of the closet. That's causing a rift between the two of them but Cal is persistent in breaking down the "closet" door. The honey scene is TOO HOT for words! TRUST ME!!

I sure did about have a stroke at the ending of the last book and thought I was going to die before I found out what happened with Cal. I am so honored to rea

Fighting demons and secrets will always put a strain on a relationship and that is what our Calvin and Jane have to deal with. They have to learn to overcome them in order to be pin the lives they are trying to create.
We also have James and Cassidy fighting to move on and love on another as well. But when the past comes into haunt her will Cassidy fall or will James prevail. This book is exciting ad heart breaking all in one I love every word written and every minute of missed sleep and total sp

J.M. Witt has made this series a part of my life. Every time I hear a specific song I think of Cal and Jane, when I see a couple off to the side of a restaurant or snuggling and being cute I think of Cal and Jane. These two are embedded into my brain and senses.

Cal and Jane have such an intense and passionate love for each other. They can't keep their hands to themselves and have some smoking hot and panty melting love scenes. They will make you want to stock your cabinets with all sorts of goo

J.M., I love how your love for writing flows. Cal and Jane are one of my favorite couples. Jane is desperate for Cal to come back to her, she has finally found the love of her life and he is in a coma, will their love for each other over come the problems that they have had or will it ruin them. I love that everything really does work out for them in the end. But now they have to wait for their HEA, until the next book...:D
Keep up the good work, I can't wait until your next book comes out...And

Loved this series from the first chapter of the first book, and this latest installment of the Anchored Hearts series did not disappoint! Ms. Witt's writing is smooth and her storytelling engaging. I was more a Team JB3 gal, but Cal is so sweet and makes it hard not to fall in love with him. A lot of books in this genre have characters that annoy me, but with this series I can't help but love them all!

Need Book 3 ASAP

I am so wrapped up in these characters. I was able to read books 1, 1.5 and 2 one right after the other. Thankfully that was only a short time before 2.5, but now I can't wait for book 3. I need to know what happens. I need to know that my friends will all be ok. Yes, I feel like these people are friends. I am living inside this series and you can't make me leave.

I cannot get enough of this series and these characters! This series just blows me away with the storyline and the twist and turns.
This book continues Cal and Jane's love story and all the ups and downs and breath-taking edge-of-your-seat moments. You still get a bit of Cassidy and James (and Paul) in this book as well. I seriously can't get enough!

This is the continuing story of Jane and Cal. Follow them through what happens when the past come back to haunt you. Will Cal make it? Will Derek get off from hurting Jane? Will Cal learn the rest of Jane's secrets? Will Jane finally say yes to Cal's proposal? Find out answers to these and many more questions. This book series is a MUST READ!

This book is about Cal and Jane. Cal fell hard for Jane. Jane has things about her past that she doesn't want anyone to know. Will the demons keep her from making a commitment to Cal? If you haven't read any of this series I think you should.

Love more of Cal and Jane! They are just so sweet together! They balance each other so well! If they could just knock some sense into James and Cassidy! This series is awesome and love the alternating books between the couples! Anxious to see where Paul falls!

I seriously don't know how JM does it. Each book I read by her is better than the one before. It's more descriptive and angsty, which I love.

This book is a continuation of Cal and Jane. You really get to know them better, but individually and as a couple. My favorite book yet by JM.

Fading Away was good

Cal and Jane's story was good. We got to see all the other characters in this story. Cas and James are crazy. I hope they get their act together. I hope we see more of Cal and Jane. I really like them and their story .
