Life is hard. There’s no secret in that statement.
Life. Is. Hard.
Simple enough.

But my life hasn’t just been hard…

I’ve gotten used to it over the years—come to expect it really. So when fate hands me yet another big f*ck you, I’m not even a little bit surprised.

Why should I be? I mean, after everything I’ve been through, why not throw my best friend’s ex-boyfriend into the mix and see how royally I can screw this up too.

It doesn’t matter that he loved her first.
It doesn’t matter that he’s wrong for me in every way possible.
It doesn’t matter that being with him could ruin everything.

One touch and I already know it’s too late.

When Dawn Breaks is a standalone Contemporary Romance.

When Dawn Breaks is a standalone set in the same world as Where the Night Ends. They don’t have to be read in any particular order but I would suggest starting with Where the Night Ends since When Dawn Breaks picks up right where it left off.

Melissa Toppen has such a way with words and I honestly didn’t think she could top Where the Night Ends. I was so wrong! When Dawn Breaks is so well written and the characters backstories are so complex and heartbreaking. I loved Bree as a teenager and now that she’s all grown up, she is probably one of my all time favorite characters. I enjoyed getting to know more about her and about Ant. Bree’s son, Jackson, is adorable too. I loved that Ant immediately asked Bree about him when they met up for the first time in 5 years. I don’t want to give away any spoilers but let’s just say this is a definite must read!

It’s not always about how we fall- it’s about where we end up once we land.
I remember the very first time I laid eyes on Cole Lincoln. It still feels like yesterday when he stumbled into my life with his messy brown hair and dark eyes. Even though I was only ten years old at the time, I knew right then and there that he was going to change everything.
From that point on Cole and I were always together—inseparable—and I naively believed we’d be best friends forever. But forever didn’t last nearly as long as I expected.
We grew up and grew apart, life driving the distance between us, but my love for Cole never faltered. Even long after he moved away, leaving me and our little town behind, I still carried a piece of him with me every single day. Because Cole wasn’t just my childhood best friend- the boy who knew me better than anyone else in the whole world. He was also my first love- a part of my very core.
When a tragic death brings us face to face again after six years, every single memory comes rushing to the surface. Only this is not the boy I fell in love with all those years ago. The man before me is hardened, intimidating, and so damn sexy I practically melt when those dark eyes meet mine for the first time in six years.
And like the first time he walked into my life, I know with complete certainty that everything is about to change.
How We Fall is a STANDALONE Contemporary Romance.

Review
Melanie has been down on her luck lately. She has lost her mom, her best friend left, and now she’s lost a childhood friend. Her best friend, Cole, is the boy she loved before she even knew what love was. He’s back in town and has changed so much but Melanie can still catch glimpses of the boy she knew. Sparks fly between the two.
I don’t want to give anything away so I’m not going to say any more about the story itself. Melissa Toppen has outdone herself with this book. It’s full of emotion and will sear your soul. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a refreshing, second chance romance. It is phenomenal and you will not want to put it down.

Review
Crazy Stupid Obsession is the second book in the Crazy Love series. This can be read as a standalone but the main characters in this story meet in Crazy Stupid Love and you don’t want to miss out on that. Not to mention the series is awesome!
Gavin doesn’t do relationships. He does sex with random women and a lot of it. Harlee doesn’t do relationships either. She feels too broken from her childhood to really trust anyone. However, after her first encounter with Gavin she decides to give a relationship a try with Bryan. Bryan is safe and won’t hurt her because she doesn’t love him.
Harlee can’t quit thinking about Gavin and he can’t quit thinking about her. He decides that it doesn’t matter that she has a boyfriend. He wants her and will do anything to make her his. Harlee can’t resist Gavin, and of course this can only lead to trouble. She must decide who she wants to be with and call it off with the other.
Melissa Toppen has done it again! She always writes incredible romances. I fell in love with her writing after reading The You and I trilogy. She knows how to write great characters who are relatable and book boyfriends that you will want to fight with your best friend over. Gavin is no different. There is just something about him that makes you want to find a guy like him in real life. It’s not just the male characters that she is good at either. Harlee is a great heroine and I loved learning more about her and where she comes from. I can’t wait to see what is next in this series.

I want him… Unlike I have ever wanted anything before in my entire life.I knew it from the very moment his eyes met mine; the way my skin burned under his dark gaze.I knew nothing would ever be the same again.
Decklan Taylor isn’t just tempting, he’s dangerous; a storm who destroys everything in his wake. But even as I stand in the path of his force I can’t turn away. While he may be the very thing that breaks me, he’s also the only thing that has ever made me feel alive.

Review
Decklan has a dark past and there are things that he can’t forgive himself for. He drowns his pain in sex and booze and has never been with the same girl more than once. When he meets Kimber, he can’t get thoughts of her out of his head. He is determined to have her one time to rid himself of her.

Kimber grew up in a very strict home. The daughter of a politician who had to have every thing done a certain way including having his daughter go to school to be a doctor or a lawyer. Kimber doesn’t want that so she moves away and does what she wants to do. She’s not sure who she is anymore but Decklan might be the key to showing her. Together they have their share of ups and downs but that’s what love is all about.

I loved Crazy Stupid Love so much!! Decklan is super hot and I fell in love with his character. Kimber is a great match for Decklan and I loved watching their relationship grow. Even the secondary characters were all very well thought out. The steamy scenes had the perfect amount of description and weren’t too over the top. Melissa Toppen is excellent at writing a story that you won’t forget easily and this is no exception. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
