Publisher's 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?

Sweet Story!

This is a sweet, second-chance romance. You can’t go wrong with an alpha southern cowboy with a heart of gold. The slow burn build up was done well, but a little disappointed with quick and abrupt HEA with no epilogue. Could have used a little more story for the ending, but a good listen overall.

Great second chance romance

Slow start but great ending. Dane and Neely are great characters and I love Mia! Dane and Neely so easily fell back into their rhythm, their undeniable attraction and all of the feelings. Mia is his life but she became Neely’s future in a flash. History is about to repeat itself just when they give in to their hearts and bodies. Fighting for a future involving everything you didn’t know you wanted became Neely’s priority, albeit a bit late. For Dane, the fight for what you want do you don’t make the second biggest mistake of your life takes some prodding from the nanny and the child he has given everything for and to for almost ten years. The result? A spectacular public display and a HEA! Tumble is a great second chance romance.

Light romance

Tumble is a second chance romance set in a small town. The story is fairly light. I enjoyed the story but think it could have been a bit heavier and angstier. Loved the character of mia. Narrators Aiden Snow and Summer Morton did an amazing job on the audible!

Tumble

This was a wonderful small town second chance romance. Neely has come home after quitting her job after being overlooked for the promotion that should have been hers. Now she is back in Dogwood, the one place she was never going to return. Dane is still living and working in Dogwood and now raising his daughter there and running into Neely is something he didn't think would ever happen again. After the way he hurt her he is not surprised when she wants nothing to do with him. However, his daughter Mia is a gymnast and when they form a bond during practice she is surprised when Mia's dad picks her up and he turns out to be Dane. These two soon fall back into a comfortable and romantic time. All is good until her dream job offer comes. Oh, this was so good!

love this story

I read books 2 and 3 of this series first. I love this one just as much as the other 2.

I'm still not 100% sure of how I feel about the way it was narrated. don't get me wrong, they both did a great job, but it's the one chapter at a time part that's not my favorite. the way this one was done, you still have a male doing the female parts, and the female doing the male parts, instead of them each doing their part within the same chapter.

production wise, Neely's chapters were louder than Dane's, which made it kind of a pain having to adjust throughout.

Good story

Neely is one smart sexy woman. Dane is one hot alpha man. They have a past. Can Neely see what it is she really wants and not see it as giving everything up. Loved the narrators.

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.
