What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear.

THE ROCK FALLS SERIES IS BACK!! 
The 5th installment, SAVING STEELE, is now available for purchase!
SAVING STEELE by Anne Jolin
Rock Falls Series #5
Genre: Contemporary Romance
– SYNOPSIS – 
Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn’t someone or something who betrayed her—it was her own body. Despite it being all she’s ever wanted, Kennedy will never know what it feels like to feel her baby’s feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only eighteen, she redirected her life the best way she could.
Eight years and a degree later, Kennedy is one of the most well-loved first-grade teachers at Rock Falls Elementary School. It doesn’t matter that her college boyfriend left her because he wanted children of his own. She has twenty-two of the most gorgeous six-year-olds who adore her and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Jackson Steele deals only in extremes. He falls victim to manic episodes lasting for days, sometimes weeks at a time, sending him reeling from volatile highs to devastating lows. It’s a living hell just being inside his own mind, and that hell has taken everything he’s ever loved away from him. But what if, this time, it gives him something? An untimely gift from God and a brunette with legs eight miles long will bring him the most unforeseen joy but also his most challenging of tests.
What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear.
Review
I received an ARC of this book from HEA Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I have to say that his may be my favorite Rock Falls book. I started Rock Falls with Keeping King, but after reading that, I went back to the first three books and read them as well. The first book was, to be honest, too juvenile. The characters didn’t have depth. The romance was too much of an insta-lust/insta-love, and I didn’t see the sincerity between the two characters. The second book was a little better. Only a little better. It felt more sincere now because the main characters have been friends for a long time. The third book was again better. The fourth book was a great read for me. That was the reason I went back to the first three books after all. But this book, this is what I’ve been waiting to see.

If you’ve followed this series, then we’ve all met Jackson Steele. Hannah’s ex-boyfriend. The one who had manic episodes. The one she loved but had to say goodbye to because they weren’t good for each other anymore. I’ve been waiting for his book since book 1. And now it’s finally here. And the wait was worth it. There’s nothing juvenile or insincere about this book at all. Jackson will steal any reader’s heart.

It’s easy to see Ms. Jolin’s progress and improvement from the first book to this book. I think she’s come so far since Hannah and Greyson, and I’m glad to witness that. I think that if her trajectory stays as it is, her books will just keeo getting better from here. And I’m excited to see that from her. I will continue on with this series if there are any new books coming out.

– EXCERPT –

I’d totally become a yes girl where hot guy, dad to mini hot guy, Jackson Steele was concerned. So that brings me to now, turning off my ignition and willing my body to move from the safety of my driver’s seat and up to his front door.
 
It’s okay though. I’ve come prepared. I’d written a list of things not to do when I arrived at the house on a yellow Post-it note.
 
1. Don’t hyperventilate
2. Don’t sweat
3. Don’t touch him
4. Don’t say the word “penis” or any of
its synonyms or any parts of the male anatomy in general
5. Don’t drool
 
Putting force behind the fist I’d raised to knock on the door I immediately begin to fall forward as the offending panel of wood swings inward and I face plant directly into a hard male chest. Rats! There goes rule number three and
quickly too.
 
Mmm. But he sure smells nice.
 
“Easy, babe,” his voice is a deep manly chuckle, large hands settling on my waist.
 
I feel that “babe,” that chuckle and that contact in all the right places, even a tingle or two in some wrong ones if I’m being honest.
 
Considering I’m relatively close to the brink of insanity this morning, it isn’t all that surprising that in that second, instead of pulling away, I take the opportunity to tilt my head back and look at him, really look at him, for the second time since we’d met.
 
Big mistake.
 
Should have added a sixth rule. Don’t look at him either.

– ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Anne Jolin –
 
Hey y’all, 
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just
outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving
in trucks. 
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes.
Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was
something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful
to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my
passion. 
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing
to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy
incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are
true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that? 
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far
too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the
things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you
without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t. 
Mad love, 
Anne Jolin
