From the USA Today Best Selling Sweet Home Series, comesSweet Fall; a tale of heartache, beating the odds and finding strength in the most unlikeliest of places. 

We all have secrets.

Secrets well buried.

Until we find the one soul who makes the burden of such secrets just that little bit easier to bear.

Lexington "Lexi" Hart is a senior at the University of Alabama. Surrounded by her best friends, her loving family and having fulfilled her life-long dream of making the Crimson Tide cheer squad, everything is going exactly as she always dreamed it would. But beneath her happy exterior, demons lurk, threatening to jeopardize everything Lexi has worked to achieve. When events in her life become too much to cope with, Lexi finds herself spiraling down into the realm of her biggest fear. Lexi falls hard, victim once again to the only thing that can destroy her and, on the way, finds herself falling straight into the dangerous tattooed arms of a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Austin Carillo, starting Wide Receiver for the Alabama Crimson Tide, must get picked in this year's NFL draft. He needs it. His brothers need it. Most importantly, his mother desperately needs it. Brought up in a world where the poor are forgotten, the sick are left to fend for themselves and no hero miraculously appears to pull you out of hell, Austin had no other choice but to make a living on the wrong side of the law—until football offered Austin the break to get his life back on track. But when a family tragedy drags him back into the clutches of the gang he believed he had left far behind, Austin finds himself falling. Falling back into criminal ways and falling deep into a suffocating darkness. Until a troubled yet kindred spirit stumbles across his path, where Austin quickly finds he is falling for a young woman, a young woman who might just have the power to save him from his worst enemy: himself.

Can two troubled souls find a lasting peace together? Or will they finally succumb to the demons threatening to destroy them?

I love Tillie Cole. 
I literally love everything of hers I've read.  She's like my spirit animal.
My favourite series of hers remains, and probabily will always remain, The Hades Hangmen series.  It has a special place in my heart.
I read the first book in the Sweet Home series, and while I really enjoyed it, I didn't love it quite as much as The Hades Hangmen.
But Sweet Fall got it back on track.
Major love for this book.
I love the characters, their chemistry, the plot, gang culture, series topics- basically A TILLIE COLE BOOK HAS EVERYTHING YOU COULD WANT!!
Austin and Lexie.  I loved them as characters.
On paper, Lexie and Austin shouldn't work.
Doctor's daughter and recovering anorexic Lexie, and ex-gangmenber footballer Austin.  And yet they are inextricably drawn to each other.
5/5 stars.
A must read.

Read from December 14 to 18, 2015
