Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn't someone or something who betrayed her—it was her own body. Despite it being all she’s ever wanted, Kennedy will never know what it feels like to feel her baby’s feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only eighteen, she redirected her life the best way she could.

This is the 5th book in the Rock Falls Series (One of my favorite series ever)

My thoughts on the first 4 books:

Book No. 1 – Oh my God…Greyson Holt… he’s so hot!!!!! Nobody could ever be hotter.
Book No.2 – Wow, I love Jamison Henley! It definitely can’t get better than that.
Book No.3 – WHAAAAT? Oh, I sooo adore Braxton Bennett. *faint* Absolutely my favorite book.
Book No.4 – Help! I love Jayden King. Love love love him! Nothing wil

"When she walks into a room, my soul literally sighs at the return of it's other half." - Jackson

"They say people's hearts skip a beat when they fall in love at first sight. Your heart is so overwhelmed by a rush of love that it stills, for just a moment, forgetting to beat. What they don't tell you is that the person your heart skips a beat for isn't always your soul mate. In my case, it was him. My son." - Jackson

If you're looking for me, you'll find me in 'swoon city', right along Kennedy Cross. I mean, where else would I be after finishing the fifth—and possibly my favorite—Rock Falls book, and falling in love with all of Jackson Steele's pieces?!

Oh, man. Kennedy and Jackson are....perfect together. They both need a little work—someone to trust in them, save them, hold them, love them. Accept them, despite the fact that Kennedy's body has betrayed her, and Jackson's mind is volatile. What they find in

I am always up for reading a story dealing with bipolar disorder but I have several problems with this book. First, it was a little unbelievable the way Jackson and Kennedy got together in the beginning and so quickly and it was also a bit aggressive and inappropriate. Second, the rambling inner monologue of Kennedy got annoying at times kind of like the author was trying too hard to make her funny. But I did like her OCD quirks, the post its and did find myself laughing at times. Third, the way ...more

This story felt really rushed, I wish it was fleshed out much more. There were time jumps all over the place.....they had their first date, then it's weeks later. They had sex (the only kinda detailed sex scene....not nearly enough for this perv) then it was 2 months later. I'd have liked to read about some of that time, them becoming a family. It's too bad, because I enjoy the way Anne Jolin writes, this could have been a really good book. ...more

Anne Jolin is one of the best things to happen to me last year. This series, the characters, the surroundings, the friendships, everything is highly addicting.

This is Jacksons story and like the rest of the books it had me swooning hard and asking myself, why don't I live In Rock Falls?

Jacksons life is thrown the moment he finds out he has a son, he change's from great to better as the chapters flew through my fingers. Well, he thought his life was thrown with his son, but the minute he meets b

Oh my goodness what a brilliant read this book was, it was heartbreaking, funny and romantic.

Its my first book from Anne Jolin and yes I realise this is book 5 in The Rock Falls Series but it can be read as a standalone. What I will say however is that I will now definitely be buying and reading books 1-4 in this series.

THAT FREAKING EPILOGUE!!!! (Be still my heart!)

Saving Steele gets ALL THE STARS!

I don't know how she does it, but author Anne Jolin gets better with every addition to her Rock Falls series. I had my doubts about Jackson--because he hadn't done himself any favors in previous installments--but he won me over and then some. He's the epitome of an alpha (think: Kristen Ashley) with a softer side, essentially the best blend of both elements.

Kennedy is hilarious. Getting inside her head every other

4 1/2 amazing stars. This was such a romantic/loving story. Such an easy, heartwarming read. I liked that it included all the other characters from the other stories - I love series like this, where the characters continue even tho they had had their story.

Jackson Steele, is the man every girl would want.
Kennedy is so quirky, I love her.
And Ryker, omg that little boy just breaks my heart

‘Babe. That sounded really good. Like better than a chocolate cupcake after two weeks of dieting good.’

Anyone who read Chasing Henley has been nervous and excited to get ahold of Jackson’s story and the wait was worth it! Kennedy and Jackson’s story is not easy but the great ones never are. The Rock Falls series has quickly become a series I can count on for some amazing alpha action along with a few tears and laughs.

Saving Steele is the 5th installment in The Rock Falls Series by Anne Jolin and it’s the one book I would feel 100% comfortable saying that you can read as a standalone. The other characters make minor appearances in this book, so really, I feel like you could go in blind and not have it affect your reading experience. You see, Kennedy isn’t a part of the group we’ve come to know and love, Jackson is. So like I said, when they do make an appearance, it’s completely small. However, I do love this ...more

I received my arc copy of Saving Steele at 8:30 last night. This book has been on my to be read list since I finished Keeping King the fourth book in this amazing series! I even bugged Anne via social media to see how long I had to wait. While she told me the book was very much still a work in progress, I never doubted we would recieve an amazing fifth book. The hero's and heroines in these books are very loveable ( except the times I really wanted to punch Grayson).

Anne Jolin has weaved a great story about redemption in the latest Rock Fall series, Saving Steele. Jackson Steele was the ex-boyfriend from the first book of the series who suffers from bipolar disorder. He is suddenly thrust into new territory when he discovers he has a six year old child he knew nothing about. Kennedy is the sister of one of the other characters, and her work with children soothes the fact she is unable to have children.

Reading these books is always a treat, and Saving Steel

4.5 Green Stars

Jolin tackles three huge social issues in our everyday life in a sweet and sexy story. She brought light and hope to those who often don't feel it.

This was my first novel by Jolin, but it won't be my last. She wrote a sweet and awesome heroine as well as a gruff and tender hero.

I only wish there had been more. More words. More feels. More everything. Why? Because I really enjoyed it!

I look forward to more stories in this series! Colt, maybe?

To be honest, this book kinda reminded of the previous book I read which was I'd Rather Not, granted without the secret child plot device. Hence, why I'm having a hard time discerning both books right now. Just my luck that both books featured the heroine with some health issues... and the guys too.

Anne Jolin is known for her Alpha men and sweet heroines. Saving Steele is the fifth book in the ‘Rock Falls series’ and has all the right ingredients; an Alpha male, a sweet heroine and a good, not over-the-top storyline. This book lived up to my expectation, I’ve enjoyed it.

Somebody needs to come and pick me up off this floor because I am dehydrated!

If there is a way for a body to release moisture, this book had me doing it. The tears started falling from about eleven percent into Saving Steele. Tears that continued to roll through my laughing at Kennedy’s special brand of crazy. And then I started sweating. And then I was sliding off my chair. Because holy-fucking-DILF batman! And it all culminated in a big crescendoing ugly cry because that ending… GAH!!

Review by Lisa Kane

Jackson Steele has a successful business, good friends and is in a good place for now. He's gone off the rails with his bi polar and when he's black, things are bad. But for right now, he's good.

He didn't expect his life to change the day he was helping his friends move. A little 6 year old boy showed up at the door looking for him and told his friends he was Jackson's son. Jackson is thrown for a loop by this minature version of himself from his hair to the piercing green ey

I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada.

I never expected to be an author. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.

If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions
