Release Blitz & Review: Falling Embers by Catherine Cowles


“A top must read for 2022”
—Samantha Young, New York Times bestselling author

Falling Embers, an all-new second chance romance filled with suspense from Catherine Cowles, is available now!

I’ve loved Calder Cruz from the moment he taught me how to fly. Racing down a mountain and giving me the release I so desperately needed. My understanding. My safe space.

Hadley has fought for a life of her own ever since her sister’s kidnapping. When she was drowning in expectations and family pressures, Calder was always the one who understood her.

Until one night changed it all. From best friends to strangers in a single breath.

She’s like a fire that lives inside me. Even when I thought it was all burned out, there were still embers that lived in my bones.

Calder knows what it’s like to almost lose the people he loves most. He’ll never make that kind of mistake again. Working at the fire station and taking care of his daughters are the only things he needs.

All it takes is a single moment to make him realize how wrong he is. A split second of coming close to losing the woman he has always loved.

But as long-buried embers light anew, there are those who lurk in the shadows. And they’ll do whatever it takes to extinguish that flame for good…

4.5 stars!

I am so in love with the Tattered & Torn series, Falling Embers just confirmed that I love this world. Falling Embers follows Hadley and Calder. If you’ve read Tattered Stars, you would know that Hadley is Hayes’ sister and Calder is his best friend. I was so excited to read their book after finishing Tattered Stars, and it did not disappoint! 

I loved getting into Hadley’s head and getting to know her more. Her inner turmoil, struggles and loneliness had my heart breaking as I continued to read her story. After a tragedy in her childhood lead to her own childhood being stifled and different to others, she feels the need to be free and experience life the way she wants to, even if others disagree. She’s done with missing out on forming relationships and milestones. She is so brave throughout the entire story, I really loved that she stood up for herself no matter what and did what was best for her. She felt lonely throughout her life until Calder actually saw who she was underneath it all and helped her fly until it ended in heartbreak. 

Calder had me swooning from the very start. I mean, how could I not swoon over a single dad who is a firefighter? He cares so much about his twin girls and always puts them first no matter what. He’s made some mistakes in his life, letting Hadley go being one of them, but he is a good man once he lets his walls fall down and loves fiercely. 

Calder tries to deny what feelings he has for Hadley but as time goes by and they spend more and more time together, it becomes impossible for them to deny. Their chemistry is too strong to ignore anymore. I really loved their friendship first. Seeing Calder let Hadley be her true self without any barriers, was so heartwarming after seeing what she has gone through to get there. I loved how Hadley had such a great relationship with his daughters too. It was so beautiful. 

Catherine Cowles has written another great instalment to the Tattered & Torn series and she has quickly become one of my one click authors. Her storytelling pulls you in and compiles you to continue until you’ve suddenly read the book in one sitting. I am so excited to see where this series goes!
