The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone novel by Addison Cole, the sweet alter-ego of Melissa Foster, known for steamy romance novels. This book is Grace and Reed's love story and the path that leads to their future together. Filled with drama and life-altering revelations this book is sure to keep you on your toes. 

One of the most important themes in this novel is the notion that just because you can do something doesn't always mean you should and just because you've accomplished w

This is a NEW TO ME author & books! AAAND now is one of my favorites!! Needles to say ADDISON COLE writes freaking amazing beautiful romance!

What happens when high school sweethearts reunite after many years? Well, it can go either good or bad. In this story the connection between Reed and Grace is so powerful even after years apart. A beautiful second chance romance, with an even sweeter story!

You will SWOON SWOON SWOON over REED! I mean swoon, he is the description of that word. Even though th

Reed has returned home in the wake of a cheating girlfriend and family emergency. There's a second chance at love dancing just in front of them, if only they would reach out.

I have been reading Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat books since her first novel. I absolutely love that I can read them and recommend them to church friends who may think other books are too much.

Grace Montgomery has always been in the background of other books I've read. I have never really found out much about her until this book. She's a New Yorker in the truest sense of the word, until she is dragged out by her sisters and finds her first love is back in her home town. Suddenly she is back to

What a great love story! Loved following the lives of Grace and Reed! The characters in this story were very real to me. I could just picture me being right there with them. They were so fun! How many of us know about high school rivalry? It’s still alive and well to some extent in my neck of the woods. Course that makes for some great fun at times. I don’t know that it went as far as it might have in this story back in the day. I hope you’ll check out the great folks of Oaks Falls. You may just ...more

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, and heartbreak.

This is Grace and Reed’s story. Grace needed a break and came home to teach a screenwriting class. Her sisters was her to also have fun and fun means a little bit of drama. What she gets is an encounter with Reed and person she never wanted to see again. Reed is back home to run his uncle’s business. But when she sees Grace all the memories of first love have him falling again. But Reed broken her heart and

Grace and Reed's second chance love story is full of family and emotion. Grace comes home to decompress and reconnects with herself after living several years in NYC and working in the theater business. After a bad breakup and needing to take care of his only family Reed also comes back and for his total surprise Grace literally happens in his life again and it is something that we cannot let go.

These two are romantic at heart and their story is so endearing and has so much fun too! The Montgome

This was such a fun and sweet second chance story. I couldn’t put it down and I just wanted more and more of Addison’s writing. Grace and Reeds story is so beautiful and you can’t help but fall in love.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a nice read for the Montgomery sisters.

The connection between the main characters is very strong and noticeable. The romance is sweet and full of chemistry.

Grace is a very independent, strong, and determined woman. She went after her dreams and achieved them. Her career is what Grace thought she always wanted. Her family is very close and loving. I loved the different personalities of her sisters and how they interact with each other.

This DNF is totally on me and my lack of author investigation. I was not aware - until right before starting The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever - that Addison Cole is the “sweet with heat” alter-ego of “steamy” author Melissa Foster. Who has the distinction of being the first author on my “I’m done with this author” list.

But I decided to give the book a go anyway.

I tried really hard to go in with an open mind. Ignore the fact that there were SO many characters I couldn’t keep track of. So man

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a sweet, second chance romance filled with captivating characters set in a small town in Virginia. Addison Cole superbly blends the love of family, career pressures and new beginnings in this novel.

A successful playwright and producer, Grace has returned home to teach a three-week playwriting course at her sister’s bookstore. This working vacation provides workaholic Grace with a much needed break from her stressful job and a chance to spend time with her

'Embracing Her Heart' is another Sweet treat by Addison Cole. It was very much worth the wait and I loved learning all about the Montgomery’s.

The story begins when Grace Montgomery returns to her small hometown of Oak Falls to help her sister host a playwriting class. What she doesn't anticipate her return being, is a trip down memory lane, a place where she is constantly reminded of the life which she left in order to pursue her dreams.

A second chance at first Love is a chance no one would want to ever walk away from. Second chances aren't always that easy though, at least for Grace Montgomery that's how it is. Needing a break from the big city Grace packs her bags and heads back to her home town, for awhile, only being back home opens her mind a little more to what she's been missing all those years away from home. Family. The longer she stays the deeper she falls in love with the small town home life, and finds herself facin ...more

Addison Cole painted a beautiful and serene picture of love and family bonding in The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever. She once again has written a story full of everything sweet and cheerful. This story has a fairytale vibe and I am on love with this story.

The cover of this book really grabbed my eye. This is probably the prettiest of all of Addison's covers and her books have some of the best covers I've seen.

This is a love story of second chances. I have to admit, it took me awhile to warm up to Grace. She wasn't my favorite heroine. She was a little bit too snotty for me at first, but she grew on me.

Then there was Reed. OMG! Now he was truly THE BEST! I totally fell for him.

These are two people that have a shared secret past but both still long

A sweet, clean second chance romance. 

The book starts out a bit slower than what I'm used to but the pacing of the romance between Reed and Grace is far from slow. Their romance spans a matter of less than three weeks...well their second chance romance. 

In high school, Grace was the quintessential "it" girl. The popular cheerleader with six siblings. Her only form of rebellion was secretly dating the quarterback of their rival high school. Back then, any one who dated or associated with someone

I was so excited to read this book and was not disappointed!!!

When Grace returns home to Oak Falls the last person she expects to run into is her ex and first love Reed Cross. Grace never got over Reed and seeing him again brings all those old feelings back to the surface. As much as she wants to protect her heart she also cannot deny what her heart wants, no matter how hard she tries.

Reed has been betrayed by two people he should have been able to trust but seeing Grace again makes him forget a

This is the story of Grace Montgomery and Reed Cross, who were secret high school sweethearts due to rivalries between their schools. But when Grace leaves for college and her dream in New York of becoming a Playwright and producer she wants Reed to go with her but he decides to stay.
Grace had later discovered that Reed had left for Michigan soon after she had left and she could never forgive him for this.

Second chance romances are my favorites! This is the second chance for Reed and Gracie. Ok, she goes by Grace now but she is truly a Gracie. As a lot of high schoolers think, she wanted to graduate and follow her dreams. By following those dreams she leaves Reed, the love of her life behind. Reed then leaves town, after swearing he never wants to leave. Fast forward a few years and both Reed and Gracie are back in town, as the same time, and of course, can’t help but feel that attraction and lov ...more

Some people have to go out into the world to discover that they had the entire world right in their hands. That would be Grace and Reed! I feel like Oak Falls is a safe haven for both of them to be who they really are. Coming from a small town, I understand the need to get as far away from the small-minded, constriction of "rival" communities; but there is something about being back that brings out a true side to both Grace and Reed. Both at a vulnerable stage in life, the passion is undeniable; ...more

``Love is supposed to grow stronger, not get easier``.
At first I didn't think this story would be that emotional but I should have known; Addison Cole never misses a beat!
Young love that was never forgotten. A love story about how much two people can love each other so much that life and years cannot erase how they feel. A powerful story of how a heart can remember the soul that touched it once; how a person can own a piece of another`s heart forever. When you leave something good behind only

I found something different with Grace and Reed. I found a second chance with them also. I found them to be more than just another couple that had a past and were now present with the present and possible future. I was able to fall in love with their story, their journey back in to each others lives. All this with family, friends, small town, and no explicit sexuality or language. You find a reason to make sure you pick up the next book of this series. Even if its only to see the next deed one o ...more

After 10 years apart it is clear that the passion and attraction between Grace & Reed  is just as ever present as it was when they were teenagers.

Grace and Reed dated in secret when in high school they were each others firsts - love and everything in between.

Ms. Cole has done it again. I love second chance romance but lately they have all seemed too alike. Ms. Cole has reminded me once again why I love a great second chance romance and why hers are the best.
I couldn't help but root for Grace and Reed from the very start. Reed is the perfect book boyfriend we all want and so does Grace, even if she doesn't want to admit it. Grace needs a nudge to allow herself to give in to her heart but once she does she doesn't look back.

I absolutely loved this second chance romance. This author always creates storylines and characters I fall in love. Reed & Grace were no different. Grace was a strong, independent heroine. And, Reed! Gosh, Reed was swoon worthyyy. I seriously died for him. Grace and Reed return to their small town and all the feelings they tried to ignore, resurface. The angst between the two was perfect. I read their love story in one sitting. I highly recommend it. ...more

This second chance romance is both sexy and romantic. With an enduring love story as well as a deeper tale of starting over or discovering what was left behind. Emotions that can not be ignored. Clean yet hot. A great new community of characters to fall in love with.
Grace has a supportive family but they tease and torment each other like real people and caring families do. This book reads wonderfully alone but I look forward to having the characters overlap and watching them develop as a series

Life is a two way street. Hidden in the moments of heartache there's usually always a bright side. We just have to take the time to look. Having seen the rain, Grace and Reed are searching for their individual happy endings. What they find is a chance to have so much more. The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever proves to be a pitstop to Second Chance Highway despite the roadblocks determined to stand in the way. Cole keeps the smiles coming, the hearts glowing and the wisdom flowing.
