From the USA Today Best Selling Sweet Home Series, comes Sweet 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?

Review:
This is my 5 star review for Sweet Fall by Tillie Cole for Eskimo Princess Book Reviews.

Sweet Fall is about the daily struggles to live and love for Lexi and Austin. Lexi suffers, everyday, from something she has a hard time fighting. She is young, beautiful, and has a magnificent heart. She is kind, considerate, and gives the benefit of the doubt even when she shouldn’t. Austin is a hot, super sexy, football star. He is best friends to the amazing Rome Prince and has a past that will rival all others. He is also highly misjudged. Will these two unlikely people be able to overcome their issues and enjoy the fall? Will life and circumstances block their path to happiness?

This was a very emotional read for me. I laughed, cried, and maybe even begged a little while reading this one. I might have wanted to throw my kindle a couple of times too. The raw emotion that is brought forth in this book is worth it. Tillie took a topic that was very near and dear to her heart and made it into a story well worth reading. This book is VERY well written. The plot line has twists and turns that are totally unexpected. The love scenes are hauntingly beautiful yet crazy hot at the same time. I loved Lexi; my heart went out to her. She really struggles but in the end she doesn’t let her disease beat her. Austin, well he will steal your heart and run away with it. He makes me want to squeeze him through my kindle. The love and calming affection that he shows his momma is truly inspiring. Thank you Tillie for such a wonderful story, I can’t wait to read more from you!
