Review by Darlene: When Fall Breaks by Julie Solano & Tracy Justice

Kaitlyn Woodley is a beautiful, determined, high school senior, who embraces her small-town roots and country life. She’s studious, musically gifted, and headed for a successful career in swimming. Aside from a catty group of jealous girls, who taunt her mercilessly, Kaitlyn’s dreams are well within her reach. That is, until she becomes tangled up with the handsome Pistol Black, a rodeo cowboy, who not only turns every girl’s head in the county, but also turns her perfect world upside down.

Kaitlyn’s overprotective twin brother and best friends, begin to see signs that make them question Pistol’s subtle control over her. As secrets are unveiled, they intervene to save her from a possible path of destruction. To their surprise, when best friend Brody steps in to protect her, newly discovered feelings complicate an already volatile situation. Soon, everything begins to change. Old feelings die, new feelings emerge, and the once beautiful path they had traveled over summer, begins to alter with the season.

Will Kaitlyn’s closest friends be able to pull her from the destructive path she’s been led to follow? As the winds of time blast through their lives, the loyalty toward their best friend will remain stronger than ever. They are determined to protect her, even if one of them ends up getting hurt in the hunt for safety. One thing is for certain, none of this close group of friends will be left untouched when fall breaks.

5 Outstanding Debut Stars
When Fall Breaks is one of those books that will sneak up on you and completely capture your heart, even when it's shattering it all at the same time.
The story line focuses on Kaitlyn Woodley as she is in the midst of her senior year in High School, and the motley crew of amazing friends she surrounds herself with. Which include her twin brother Caden, their good friends Brody ( who you'll absolutely love), Jenna, and Mason.
However, Kaitlyn is also dating a good looking and cocky cowboy named Pistol, who seems to think he can get whatever he wants even if it's by force. And although her friends surround her and try to protect her, you wonder if it will be enough; especially when fall breaks ?
Julie Solano & Tracy Justice have done an outstanding job of creating a story line and cast of characters that you will be immediately drawn to. They also tackle important issues, including Teen Dating Violence and underage drinking, with an emphasis on how much both issues can impact ones life in the blink of an eye.
I completely fell in love with this story and can not wait for the second book to release before the end of the year.
"As hard as one may try to blind themselves to the destruction, no one will escape the inevitable death that comes . . . when fall breaks."
