Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Adriana Locke comes a witty romance about first love and second chances.

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?

A romantic second-chance romance!!!

Tumble is a beautiful second-chance romance had me under it’s spell from the very first page. A love story that is inspiring, emotional, incredibly sexy, and breathtakingly romantic.

Neely is sweet, strong, and selfless. Dane a complex man who incredibly sexy and fiercely protective. Their paths first collide as teenagers. They share an intense connection and quickly become inseparable. This is a beautiful story of young love that is tragically torn apart and years later their paths collide once again. Even after years apart, that magnetic pull to one another is still forever drawn home. No matter how hard they try to deny it, the hearts wants what it wants. Searching for that missing piece to make them whole and they are powerless to stop the fall. Oh, watching these two fall is magical! The storyline is incredibly well-written and flowed seamlessly. The secondary characters only add to the story. The unconditional love of family and friends is heartwarming; always there through good times and bad. The twists and turns are a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I could feel everything the characters experience; the emotions radiate from the pages. The heartfelt moments stole my breath and the heartbreaking ones hit me hard. A powerful story of love, faith and forgiveness that I didn’t want to end! Narrators Aiden Snow and Summer Morton brought this story to life. They exquisitely captured the emotions and all the feels of this amazing story. They delivered it with perfection! I have found 2 new narrators to add to my favorites list. I highly recommend reading this stunning love story! I can’t wait for the next books in this interconnected series.

Neely and Dane!

After a devastating turn of events at work Neely quit her sportscasting job and left NYC to spend some time in Dogwood Lane with her mother. The one person that she doesn’t want to see is the man who broke her heart her high school sweetheart Dane.

It’s been ten years since Dane made the biggest mistake of his life which he has regretted ever since but it also gave him the greatest gift of all his daughter Mia. When he and Neely see each other again the feelings and chemistry between them is stronger than ever but is it enough to overcome the pain of the past?

This is a sweet and sexy second chance at love story. It is filled with emotion, heat, humor, healing and great secondary characters that leave you wanting more of this new series. I thought that the narrators did a great job at bringing these characters to life.

Dogwood Lane, here I come!

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 invested in this audio and my emotions were spilling over while listening to 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 where 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!

Great book.

I read the book first, I loved it. During the audible sale I bought it, I kind of missed the characters. I loved everything about the story, Dane was absolutely the perfect character in a book boyfriend. Hard worker, awesome dad, he had me swooning at the way he put his daughter first, and took care of Mia. Neely was perfect too, strong, hard working, independent woman. Author Adriana Locke did an amazing job writing this beautiful book.

So good

5 Star review of Tumble (Dogwood Lane #1) by Adriana Locke
Adriana Locke is a new author to me and I have absolutely no idea why that is.
I love small town romances and when you throw in a single dad I just couldn’t resist. Adriana Locke had me from chapter one as I was anxious to see how the story panned out.
When Neely returns to her hometown of Dogwood Lane she has no idea that the man who shattered her heart will be one of the first people she sees. Not only that but Dane has an adorable little girl named Mia.
I loved how swoon worth Dane was and the fact that Neely was strong, feisty and determined. Mia was just too adorable for words and almost steals the book away from Dane and Neely. The secondary characters were just as interesting and I look forward to reading more from Dogwood Lane.
Tumble was well written and full of love, romance, laughter and the opportunity for a second chance at love. I appreciated that although Dane and Neely had history which had shaped their present, they did not fall instantly back into a relationship. In fact if I am being totally honest, I am not too sure I would have given Dane another chance.
Can Dane convince Neely to take another chance on them or are these two destined to lives their lives apart?
The narrators did a fabulous job

realistic true love story!

I really enjoyed this book. I loved that the connection between the 2 main characters was believable. It was a connection that could really happen, not the "oh hi, I love you, let's have sex, now let's get married" story line in so many books out now! And of course the narration was fantastic!!
