First I turned down a marriage proposal, then I moved to Annapolis to open a law firm. I thought my world couldn't change any more...

Until Cade stepped into my office, smelling of sawdust with his company’s T-shirt stretched taut over his chest and biceps. Everything about him was sexy-as-sin and completely off-limits.

But I can’t risk the business I sunk my savings

Honestly I don’t even know where to begin with my review on this book. I found Lea Coll when I received an ARC of her book “Take A Chance On Me” which I fell in love with. What I love most about her books is that she is writing about places her and I are both very familiar with, and that is the state of Maryland which we both call home. In Lea’s new book “Only with You” we meet characters Hadley Winters, and Cade Morrison. Their love story is everything, and the obstacles they face only make th ...more

MAN, am I glad I found this author. I just loved this story guys! The story is emotional but not angsty because of it. Some of the circumstances carry some emotional weight to them so depending on the individual reader, they might affect one more than others. It’s a hopeful story of moving forward, finding love and living life, taking chances and just going for it!

Hadley and Cade were written perfectly for one another and I just fell in love with the town immediately! Cade is the carrier of the

What an emotional read. If I have learned anything by reading Lea Coll she like to give all your emotions a work out.
The emotions in this story were balanced but boy did I feel them all. I absolutely have a book hang over from reading this story, it was that good.
Hadley is such a strong character. I worried at first that she was going to come off as being meek and easily swayed to the demand of those around her but a public engagement by a guy who was not even her boyfriend of three months fli

Lea Coll was new to me.

I signed up to review because the blurb got to me. It gave me some "The Air He Breathes by Brittainy Cherry" vibes, and that book was one of my all time faves.

Cade was dealing with the loss of his wife... Hadley was dealing with the pressures of society imposed by her Dad and subsequently, also dealing with the loss of her mother.

I loved the story. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.

Both lead characters have broken parts inside of them, and these b

Hadley finally gets the gumption to stand up to her father when her boyfriend, whom she'd been dating for only a few months, proposes very publicly, all because it was what her father dictated. So a move to a new place - Annapolis, is just the ticket to starting over. There she'll start a law firm, and she'll meet Cade, the man who will end up becoming her one if both of them can open up to each other, shake off their demons, and move forward.

This is such a heartfelt, emotional

Cade, a guy who has experienced loss, even after 5 years he couldn’t take the step to move on. Not until Hadley came into his life and make him feel again. But it wasn’t easy for him to just get into a relationship. He wasn’t ready for more, for what he had with his ex-wife, with someone else. He doesn’t think he could. But he couldn’t not discover what he is feeling towards Hadley too

This is the first book I have read by Lea Coll but it certainly won’t be the last, after reading Only with You I’m struggling to understand why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now. This is book one in the new Annapolis Harbor Series and what a great start, if this book is any indication to go by this is going to be a hit series. I was captivated from the first page and there was no putting down until I had read the final line, I was engrossed in Cade Morrison and Hadley Winters story. This au ...more

One of the greatest things about starting an account and working with PR companies is the ability to be introduced to new authors. I decided last month that I need to branch out with new authors. Enter Lea Coll. So glad I received his arc. Because Lea has a new fan.

This book starts off with the push and pull of attraction. Hadley and Cade are attracted to each other but life has them focused on everything but love. Cade a construction worker and karate instructor who’s wife passed away and does

5 Star Review Only With You (Annapolis Harbor #1) by Lea Coll

Lea Coll is a new author to me and how I have not come across her before I have absolutely no idea. However after reading Only With You I will be seeking out other books when time permits.
If Only With You is any indication then this series is going to be great. From the first chapter to the last I was fully invested in Hadley Winters and Cade Morrison’s story. The writing was strong, descriptive and I could easily see myself in Annapo

What a sweet story. Hadley has always been under the control of her father. So when her boyfriend of three months proposes at a gala she runs. Time for her to take a stand and do things on her own.

Cade has just been going through the motions. Ever since his wife Caroline passed he has put his life on hold. Withdrawing from his family and diving into work. That is until he meets Hadley.

These two lost souls discover each other. These two will embark on a path of healing and finding themselves. Lo

This book was so adorable! I loved Hadley and Cade's story, it was the perfect amount of heartbreak, growth, change and love. Cade went through a lot before he met Hadley and I loved how honest he was with her about how his is still healing and it's a continuous process that doesn't go away overnight or because he met Hadley. I loved how much they supported each other even when they didn't need it. I loved their little dates around town and this book really made me want to visit Annapolis!!

OH is this story a heartbreaking but stunning tale of finding your footing and also finding your way in life after such tragedy! Lea Coll delivers a spellbinding story that will leave you breathless with Only with You. Hadley is fighting to find her place after such insanity she left back home. I am floored at everything that poor girl has to endure. When Cade enters her life, he gives her such confidence but also a backbone to move on with her life on her own terms. In return, Hadley gives Cade ...more

I really enjoyed this story. Hadley had a very controlling father and she moved away to get away from him. She meets Cade right away and is attracted to him. Cade had a sad history and it was taking awhile to get over it. I loved their chemistry and how they both had charities they were invested in. They were both very likeable and I look forward to more stories in this series

Only with you is the first book in the Annapolis Harbor series. I enjoyed this book. Hadley and Cade Both had major baggage. They couldn’t of met at a better time. They both needed each other more than they knew. There was mutual instant attraction. Spending time with each other they slowly found out that they were both stronger then they believed they were. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

OMG my heart!!! Hadley & Cade were both dealing with their own emotional baggage yet their pull was so magnetic. This book was raw, emotional, passionate, realistic and just drew me in. Overall, it was amazing & will tug at your heartsrings. Being set in the beautiful town of Annapolis (aka Naptown as the locals call it) was a wonderful bonus. I can't wait to see what's to come in the future for these characters and the series. I highly recommend this book! I voluntarily reviewed an advance read ...more

This was such a sweet story and I really loved the plot and characters, especially Hadley and Cade. I kinda wonder if you have a story in mind for Nolan. Poor guy needs love. Also glad I was never treated like Hadley was from her father...

Thank you Hidden Gems for the eARC of the book for free. This review is my honest opinion and is strictly voluntary.

This was my first read from the author Lea Coll and it will definitely not be my last! The development of the characters and the storyline draws you in right from the start. The emotions evoked the authors writing was amazing. Hadey and Cade seemed so real. The author was very descriptive in all aspects, the characters, their feelings and their emotional highs and lows.

What I like the most in Lea’s books is sense of normality when I read any books of her. No one and nothing is over the top, but the characters are amazing, with so much depth. Of course the story is still a fiction, but there is a sense that it could happen to you or anyone else in real world, but probably in a different scale.

One of the things I liked the most in this story was that both Hadley and Cade had to overcome traumatizing situations from their past and for her, her present too, to ful

This is only my 2nd outing reading a Lea Coll story and I am as impressed this time as I was the first.

This is a beautifully written book of 2nd chances; beating the odds and finding who you are and what your place in the world is. If you like stories by Kaylee Ryan and Kelly Elliott then 'Only With You' will be right up your street. And I am so excited for the 2nd book in the Annapolis Harbor ser

Lea Coll is a new to me author - this is my second book by her and I am over the moon about what I’ve read so far. “Only With You” is not just a beautiful love story, it’s about overcoming your own personal issues and becoming a better version of yourself for you and for the person you love.

Cade and Hadley have complicated pasts, the baggage each one carries is unique to them but important all the same. Cade is a widower. He lost his young wife and allowed his grief to consume him, leaving him

I love Lea Coll and Only with You is SO GOOD! It was a fabulous start to a series and introducing us to this world and characters. It was extremely emotional with both of our main characters a little mentally scarred from their past.

Hadley grew up with an extremely strict father and doing everything to please him and finally on her own while Cade is suffering from his wife dying. The feelings were heartfelt and real and happened extremely organically. While both were struggling, it was nice to

When Hadley's boyfriend of three months proposes to her in front of a crowd, she tries to tell him no but he acts like she said yes. That's when Hadley decides that putting distance between them and her overbearing father is the only answer. Little does she realize that when she meets Cade, a widower, that her life will change so much. Cade is still grieving for his wife but doesn't want to have any relationships but will Hadley change his mind? They can give each other the things they each need ...more

Receiving a marriage proposal should be one of the happiest days of your life unless it is a tactic by your father which is more merger than marriage. The only good thing to come out of the experience is that it gave Hadley the insight to realize that she needs to follow her own path and not the path that others want her to take.

Cade’s wife passed away five years ago but when it comes to the pain he feels it seems like it was yesterday. When he needs to retain Hadley as his lawyer, she manages t

My first book from Lea Coll, and I am happy for taking a chance on a new to me author! Only with You is one of those comfort reads. There is enough angst to keep you in the book, but not so much that you are an emotional mess throughout.

One thing I really enjoyed about the book was the flip flop of character rolls. Typically when I read books about suits, it seems that the men are the ones wearing them. The men are in the high power stressful job, but in Only with You, it's the heroine. The her
Jodi Bird (Ruby Red Romance Review)
What a beautiful, heartfelt story. I loved getting lost in Hadley and Cade. This story felt real. It felt true. It felt like my heart was left feeling full from reading this amazing story.

Hadley is from a family with money. But she's trying to make it on her own. Wanting out from her father's control Hadley does just that. When she meets Cade there is chemistry there, no doubt. But Cade gave his heart away. He's not looking for anything. And Hadley isn't even on his radar until she is.

This was such a wonderful read! Hadley runs from New Orleans after a surprise proposal from a guy she was dating. She opens a law office with two other attorneys in order to make a new life. Cade owns a martial arts studio next door and becomes one of their first clients. Neither one is looking for a relationship but they can't seem to stay away from each other. Cade and Hadley's story is a slow burn and very realistic in their journey to happiness. It was such a pleasure to read.

this was a nice introduction to a new series but I wanted and expected more, having just read and loved another book by this author last month. both characters have some sort of baggage in their lives, one being an over bearing and controlling father, the other being a widower who hasn’t gotten over his loss. this was a slow burn but I wish it was even slower.
