Also in this series:
After being burned by her dream job in New York City, sports journalist Neely Kimber suddenly finds herself jobless and paying a long-overdue visit to her hometown in Tennessee. Her plan? Relax, reset, and head back up the corporate ladder. There’s just one unexpected step. Neely’s back in Dogwood Lane for barely a day when she sees the man she ran from nine years ago: the bad boy next door who was her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak.
Devoted single dad Dane Madden knows he hurt Neely in the worst way. He’s got a lot to make up for. And as passionate as their reconnection is, it’s a lot to hope for. Having her back in his arms feels so right. But falling in love all over again with a woman who wants to live a world away is bound to go so wrong.
What’s it going to take for Neely to give him—and Dogwood Lane—just one more chance?
Adriana Locke knows how to write a small town, second chance romance like no other! Tumble checked off a ton of my favorite things….a single dad, a strong willed woman, great friends, a fantastic storyline, family and most importantly the fact you can always go home <3
I live for a good second chance romance and Tumble did not disappoint. Neely and Dane were Dogwood Lane’s all-American couple who had a falling out of epic proportions ten years ago and haven’t seen each other since. You know that feeling when you were a teenager and the boy you liked talked to you? Do you know the feeling of being in love with your best friend and looking forward to forever? The anger and frustration of a relationship gone in an instant. All of these things had me clutching my Kindle to my chest to try to ease the emotions that were spilling over while reading this book.
For me, the best part of the entire story was the slow build of Dane & Neely’s relationship. There was no jumping right back into a relationship were they left off. There was no make-believing they waited around for each other for ten years. There was nothing but truth and honesty and I found that very refreshing!
Neely, Dane and his daughter brought emotion, love, laughs and everything you need for a second chance romance. I enjoyed Tumble and cannot wait to see what comes next in Dogwood Lane!
