    ****This book has undergone extensive changes since I read it in June 2015, so this review might no longer be relevant**** “By the way, my little wordologist… what’s a slouche?” “That would be my latest word for a slut who dates a douche.” This was an okay story, but I did get annoyed in places, and it had a massive cliff-hanger ending! The characters in this came across as incredibly immature. They acted more like 12-year-olds than older teens, and gosh were they annoying! Some of their pranks ****This book has undergone extensive changes since I read it in June 2015, so this review might no longer be relevant**** “By the way, my little wordologist… what’s a slouche?” “That would be my latest word for a slut who dates a douche.” This was an okay story, but I did get annoyed in places, and it had a massive cliff-hanger ending! The characters in this came across as incredibly immature. They acted more like 12-year-olds than older teens, and gosh were they annoying! Some of their pranks were also bordering on dangerous. The storyline in this was about Pip, and her relationship with her best friend Brody, who was obviously going to become more than a friend, and her dodgy relationship with her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend. Now, this ex-boyfriend Pistol was a bit of a lunatic; possessive to the point where Pip couldn’t even speak to her own brother, quite happy to be going off with other girls whilst still in a relationship with Pip, and then going psycho once the relationship was over. Pip made some mistakes too though (view spoiler)[ going to meet Pistol alone, in a dark place, without anyone knowing where she was, and stupidly thinking it was someone else she was meeting was just a disaster waiting to happen, and I wasn’t surprised when he tried to rape her. She really did walk right into that one, and it was pretty easy to guess it was coming. (hide spoiler)] We did get some very sentimental, mushy romance going on, which was pretty sickening to listen to, and then we got a huge cliff-hanger at the end, when we really didn’t need any more drama. Not sure if I want to read a sequel though. 6 out of 10

She has the world at her fingertips and yet, like most of us at one point in our lives, finds herself being dragged down by her boyfriend Pistol Black.

This story sucked me in and still hasn't let go. Just when you think their lives might calm down something else happens. I feel like I've run an emotional marathon and have the book hangover as my prize. The authors collaboration on this book is flawless. They write about topics that are scary and relateable. You can't help but fall in love with the main characters while plotting the destruction of the villain. I highly recommend this book and am already stalking the authors to find out when the next book releases.

    We wrote this book for all those rural country teens who didn't have many books to relate to. If you grew up in the country, in a small town, or a rural setting, you will most likely relate to this story. We hope you experience the whole spectrum of emotions that we tried to write into it. At times we laughed out loud at some of the scenes, and other times, we wanted to punch our own characters in the face. There are light-hearted moments, tender moments, and intense ones too.

    This book was written with young readers in mind, even though all ages can enjoy the country romance theme. Get ready for some twists and turns. We will show our readers the dangers of keeping secrets from family and friends. We will toy with your emotions. Believe me, there's a powerful message for teen girls in abusive relationships. Hopefully girls who endure the same type of abuse will become resourceful after reading this story.

    Wow! I didn’t see that coming! What a ride! I literally feel like I just stepped off of a roller coaster. What started out as a light-hearted and fun country teen romance, turned into an intriguing suspense novel that left me begging for more. The characters are down to earth, sassy, and lovable. If you grew up in a small town or near the country, you will definitely relate to the story of Kaitlyn Woodley and her close knit group of friends. Reading their story took me right back to my teen year Wow! I didn’t see that coming! What a ride! I literally feel like I just stepped off of a roller coaster.

This book was crafty in that it infused and brought awareness to some serious teen issues, in a subtle yet powerful way. This book is a MUST read for a reluctant teen reader. I can’t wait to give it to my teenage girls! I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2!!!

    I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. When I saw the cover of this book, then the blurb, I KNEW I had to read this recent release by these new authors, known as JT Authors. My instincts were right on. Although this book's genre is for teens and young adults, me being middle aged, I was immediately hooked!

Although this book's genre is for teens and young adults, me being middle aged, I was immediately hooked! This is a story that I very highly recommend ALL read, regardless of age. Actually would be a superb high school reading assignment. What a page turner, absolutely loved every single word brilliantly written by this author team, totally absorbed myself in this story and it totally grabbed my heart. The characters and storyline are so vividly explained by the authors that you feel like you are there "in the story" as events unfold. You know exactly what the characters look like because you "see" them. I fell in love with this story and all of the characters except Pistol. Oh my do I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Brody! What a strong friendship amongst the group that I can so picture them in my head. They are a group of teens trying to "be teens", facing all of the pressures that teens face in life such as peer pressure, grades, sports, hormones, etc. The issues addressed are so very real and prevalent in today's society. I know because when our children were in high school, they'd tell us about these very issues going on at school and I still hear about them, although in real life what I've been told is so much worse than portrayed here! I can't possibly put into words to properly do this story justice, other than to tell you to read it. To me it's also a great story to learn from, discuss and be aware of what teens truly face. So many emotions experienced while reading. The book ends with a HUGE cliffhanger and I honestly can't wait for book 2, The Dead of Winter. Well done Julie and Tracy. To me you deserve a standing ovation for this outstanding piece of work. I'll be singing praise for this story for a long time! You're on the cusp of being added to this reviewer's very short list of pedestal authors! 5+ stars in my opinion!

    For the Love of Books

    Sometimes I just have to say a huge thank you for the invention of social media. Without it I am very sure that I wouldn't have been in contact with the amazing two authors who wrote this magnificent debut novel! I loved this book from the very start. The characters were so real and really reminded me of my school days.

I'm sure most of us girls can see bits of ourselves in Kaitlyn, her clumsiness, her trust in others and her determination are characteristics I love in a female lead. And oh Brody, he is adorable who wouldn't want to date him or have their daughter date him. He is particularly swoon worthy! The camaraderie between the group including Kaitlyn's twin brother and best friend is the comical side of the story especially the poison plant scenes! However, all is not perfect in their world, thanks to Pistol Kaitlyn's boyfriend. Put it this way he doesn't like being turned down!!!! In fact he puts their lives at risk more than once. It is the suspense that he brings which elevates this from a good N/A book to an AMAZING N/A book. Julie and Tracey you have done a wonderful job writing this book and I thank you for trusting me to review it. I really am looking forward to building our friendship and reading more in this series. I award this book 5* ~Rosie

This book is a Young Adult and it shows teenagers or some people in general what can happen in certain situations like alcohol, abuse and stalking. It is about a young girl Kaitlyn, who is a strong girl until she meets the wrong guy. She has been dating a guy named Pistol, who is a cowboy and she thinks that she loves him. There is also Brody, who she has known since they were young kids. He is her best guy friend and he is also like a brother to her. Brody is the type of guy every woman wants in their life. Pistol is jealous of the relationship Kaitlyn and Brody have and tries to make Kaitlyn feel bad about being with her best friend, which makes Brody angry. Kaitlyn finally sees what a jerk Pistol is and that is when everything falls to pieces. If you want to know what happens to Kaitlyn, Caden, Brody and Pistol, you really need to read this book. I highly recommend this book and it is my new favorite series and I just found my new favorite authors. Congrats to Julie Solano and Tracy Justice with this fabulous book. You will have a fan for life!

I loved this story and highly recommend this book to teens as well as adults that enjoy a sweet love story with a lot of suspense. I have three daughters and was happy to finally find authors that are willing to address such a serious teenage issue. There isn't enough books out there that provide guidance for girls in abusive relationships. These ladies have created a story that young girls can relate to. I feel after reading this story, young girls in abusive relationships will have a better understanding they are victims being manipulated into thinking they deserve this kind of treatment. One thing I know for sure, I will be buying the next book in this series. These authors know how to take tough teenage issues and create a dramatic story that may save lives.

    This book was one of the best YA Romance/ Suspense books I have read in a long time, and I read a lot of YA books.

This story is based around Kaitlyn Woodley. She is a senior in High School. She has a twin brother, Caden, and they both have been best friends with Brody Tatum since they were little. The story starts off with Kaitlyn in a relationship with a guy named Pistol. Let me just stop here and say that I could not stand him from the get go. I thought he was a jealous asshole and there was just something about him that was off. You could tell that there was something wrong with him by the way he talked to Kaitlyn and played tons of head games with her. “The Pistol I thought I cared about so deeply, never even existed.” Brody has been Kaitlyn’s BGF (Best Guy Friend) since they were little and he has always been there for her but now it seems that things are starting to head out of the friend zone. They both start to realize that they have feelings more than just friends but don’t want to act on them because they are both scared if it went wrong they would no longer have their close friendship anymore. The problem with that theory is sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants and things are not always so simple. Brody was so sweet and always said the right things to make her smile or feel better. I loved the nickname Pip he gave her. “She hasn’t realized that the man of her dreams is sitting right in front of her.” The author really did a great job with this book. She took me on a rollercoaster ride full of suspense and heartache. A few times I could not get my eyes to read fast enough. I was expecting this to be a book about teenage love and drama and it did have that but she threw a major plot twist and took this book in a totally different direction. The secondary characters were great. I loved her BFF Jenna. She was hysterical and told it like it was and always had Kaitlyn’s back. There friendship was believable and I laughed at the crazy things those two managed to do. Kaitlyn was a great main character. She was strong and funny but realistic too. I loved how she didn’t take crap from anyone but still hurt and had all the insecurities a normal girl her age would have. “That’s it… I’m gonna Taylor Swift that asshole.” The only thing that really bugged me about this book was that I didn’t see how two people could be such close friends and then Bamm!!! They all of a sudden had all these strong feelings about each other. I would of liked it if the author explained their past and how their feelings grew a little bit more but the rest of book was fantastic and like I said earlier she took you on a ride that I was not expecting to take. This book was unique and readers be warned. Major Cliffhanger that had me slam my kindle down and yell Noooooo!!!!!!! I was so angry it ended that I wanted to smack the authors with their own book. I can not wait for the next book because I need to know what happens!!!!!

    Kaitlyn Woodley is very beautiful and talented high school senior. She is headed for a career in swimming, her boyfriend is the handsome rodeo cowboy, Pistol Black. As well as being a great swimmer she is also studious, musically gifted, and embraces her small town country roots. Of course there is her overprotective twin brother, Caden, and her BGF (best guy friend) Brody that she has known most of her life.

Of course there is her overprotective twin brother, Caden, and her BGF (best guy friend) Brody that she has known most of her life. Kaitlyn’s life starts to be turned upside down when Brody starts to flirt with her. Pistol has always been jealous and not understanding her friendship with Brody and her twin. Everything begins to change as secrets are unveiled and newly discovered feelings complicate an already volatile situation. Will Kaitlyn’s family and friends be able to pull her from the destructive path she’s been led to follow? Will they be able to protect Kaitlyn at any cost? One thing is for certain, when fall breaks, no one is left unscathed. This book ends in a cliffhanger that I wasn’t expecting. I don’t mind reading a book with a cliffhanger, but, I do like to have the knowledge ahead of time when the next book releases. Now I find myself dangling off said cliff with only a little rescue in sight. With that said...I wasn’t able to really put this book down losing sleep to finish it. It also wasn’t what I was expecting to read. I thought it was going to be a love triangle story of girl and her childhood friend and someone new. There was some of that in the story but the path the story takes was one I wasn’t expecting and keep me going. The relationships Kaitlyn has with her family and friend feels very real and relatable. The interaction at the high school with the cattiness of the the girls and the pranks that were pulled were believable. This book was cowritten and the two authors did a great job. I was unable to differentiate between the two authors as they meshed so well. The book also has a good amount of angst, suspense, tears, laughs, and just OMG moments. I will be recommending this book to others and look forward to reading more from these authors. I read and reviewed this book for Kylie’s Fiction Addiction.

The authors do a great job of really creating a bond between the characters and the reader. I felt like part of Kaitlyn's life as I was reading. The story itself has some powerful messages for a young adult read. Messages that the authors feel strongly about getting across. Kaitlyn is faced with horrible situations by her boyfriend. Being a teenager, it is her first relationship. A relationship with a boy who thinks he owns her. Like most young woman, she doesn't know exactly how to handle the situation. It was heart breaking to read. It made my heart hurt for her. It also gave me a great feeling as Kaitlyn's family and friends help her not let the situation break her. This includes the boy next door, Brody, who wants Kaitlyn to know what a good relationship should feel like. “When you really care about someone, the little things they say and do tend to stick with you.” I have a feeling Brody is going to help Kaitlyn stay whole again. I will have to wait for book two to find out. I would strongly recommend this book to readers who like a romance read with lots of twists & turns. Thank you, Julie Solano and Tracy Justice for a great read. Congratulations on your debut. I can't wait for more. I received an ARC for an honest review.

    What a great book! Thanks for writing such an interesting book and giving me the privilege of the advance read. The story made me remember what high school was really like. I think I went to school with some of the characters! The story is fun and suspenseful at the same time. At times I found myself laughing out loud and then feeling scared ten minutes later. The twists and turns left me on the edge of my seat, all the way through the cliffhanger ending. Can'the wait to read the next book! What a great book!

    Really enjoyed the imagery and development of the characters. It was hard to put down as each chapter led into more questions of what was going to unfold? Outstanding work especially as first time authors. Great story for teens and adults.

    When Fall Begins by Julie Solano and Tracey Justice 4 Stars When Fall Begins is a YA novel by Julie Solano and Tracey Justice, this is a debut novel by both authors and all and all they did a pretty good job. There were times I had to remind myself that this novel is a YA read and the actions and behavior of the characters are based on their ages. The authors deliver a powerful message in this book that readers young and old, parents and family should read. Kaitlyn Woodley is a beautiful High Scho When Fall Begins by Julie Solano and Tracey Justice 4 Stars When Fall Begins is a YA novel by Julie Solano and Tracey Justice, this is a debut novel by both authors and all and all they did a pretty good job. There were times I had to remind myself that this novel is a YA read and the actions and behavior of the characters are based on their ages. The authors deliver a powerful message in this book that readers young and old, parents and family should read. Kaitlyn Woodley is a beautiful High School Senior; she lives in the county and lives a simple life. She is smart, musically gifted and a competitive swimmer. She has a great group of friends, loving family and has no trouble. She meets and becomes involved with Pistol Block a rodeo cowboy, she has never had a boyfriend and becomes engrossed in their relationship, so much that she notice the control Pistol takes in her life. Kaitlyn twin brother Cade and their family best friend notice things aren’t right with Pistol and become her protectors. Brody and Kaitlin has always been best friend, but Brody has always loved Kaitlin from a far. This story was hard for me; there were parts in this story that had triggers for me while I read. I related to Kaitlyn and I felt for her. Kaitlyn kept things from about her relationship with Pistol from her parents, family and friends, she hide a lot of things and tried to cover it as well. I felt her pain as well as the feelings of first love and the turmoil she was experiencing. Things with Pistol gradually escalated as time went on, and the more things escalated between Kaitlyn and Pistil so did the turmoil in Kaitlin life. It is clear that the authors conducted research regarding the subject matter in this novel, I felt the emotions, fear, anxiousness, unease, suspense and the overwhelming sense of insecurity Kaitlyn experienced in this book. When the truth that Kaitlyn has hidden from her family, Brody and friends come out they will do anything to keep her safe and Pistol out of her life. Brody is really a good guy; his need to keep Kaitlyn safe was so powerful. They were best friends for years but Brody has felt more for Kaitlyn for a while, the more time they spend together the more their feelings towards one another change and once again Kailyn’s life changes. Pistol is not that happy to see Kaitlyn spend time with Brody and does not like the way she is ignoring him. I would have liked to read more about the relationship between Kaitlyn and Brody; I felt that I needed more of them to understand their connection. I understood they had years of being best friends but, all of sudden there are more feelings involved. The support and loyalty Kaitlyn received from family, Brody and friends was refreshing. The constant support and loyalty is what many people lack in this world. Can Brody, Cade and their group of friends keeps Kaitlyn safe? Will Pistol’s behavior continue to escalate and take control of Kaitlyn completely? When all the secrets are revealed will everyone continue to be there for Kaitlyn?

A sweet love story one moment and a scary fight for your life the next these 2 authors definitely succeed in keeping you on the edge of your seats! I loved how seamlessly this book was written, how you couldn't tell it was 2 authors co-writing. The characters were fabulous, you knew who the main characters were but even the supporting played such a crucial part. The only thing I didn't like was that the story ended on a major cliffhanger, with ZERO warning posted. I do enjoy cliffhangers though, and luckily the wait isn't too long until book 2 comes out. *Read and reviewed on behalf of Kylie's Fiction Addiction

    I loved this book! I was so hard to put down. I thought the characters were extremely well developed, and I kept thinking about them during the day – and couldn’t wait to get back to the book. The setting is fabulous too – the kind of place you wish your kids could grow up in! This book is a great read – and I’m so glad to have these authors to recommend to my teenage daughters. The authors tackle some difficult teenage issues and do it well. I highly recommend this book . . . and can’t wait for I loved this book! I was so hard to put down.

    “There is something different about this. My heart is literally quivering. Then it dawns on me. This is what I felt the first time I saw Noah kissing Allie in The Notebook.” I loved reading this book because it put me right in the world my teenage daughter lives in. It gave me a glimpse into a world that parents are usually blocked from. It gave me a clear reality look at high school relationships. How quick they can change and how words really work in a teenagers mind. This book starts off “There is something different about this. My heart is literally quivering. Then it dawns on me. This is what I felt the first time I saw Noah kissing Allie in The Notebook.” I loved reading this book because it put me right in the world my teenage daughter lives in. It gave me a glimpse into a world that parents are usually blocked from. It gave me a clear reality look at high school relationships. How quick they can change and how words really work in a teenagers mind. This book starts off very bubble gum cute but as you continue you quickly realize you might be in a lifetime movie. “What’s going on? What did I miss?” I am not a huge fan of YA and it’s not that I don’t like them I just have a hard time connecting I tend to pick too much at the dialog between characters. A lot of teenage wording comes off cheesy to me. However going into this one I kept reminding myself that the authors had a message to share. Their target audience is my daughter. This story was based around Kaitlyn Woodley. Kaitlyn was everything I see in my daughter, she is a senior in high school, she has a twin brother, part of the swim team and blah, blah, blah you see where I am going. Typical. The story starts off with us getting a glimpse into Kaitlyn’s triangle life and her relationship with Pistol. And let me just say as a mother this guy sets off immediate alarms in your head. He just doesn’t sit well. He is a prick. Pistol = Prick. And this is also where I knew we were in for something. “It’s almost as though he wants to physically mark me as “his” every time Brody comes around.” That line, go ahead read it again. That line I could hear my own daughter saying. That line I could hear my 17 yr old self saying. That line made my skin crawl because I wanted to scream NO NO NO HE IS AN ASSHOLE SWEETHEART!! Pistol had a way of talking to her throughout the whole book that made you see how young girls end up in these relationships. BLIND LOVE. It’s the head games and the manipulation that parents don’t get to see. This book let’s you see it. “Come here girl.” He slides his hands around my waist and wraps me in a strong bear hug. “Look at me babydoll,” he gently tucks a loose tendril of hair behind my ear and I begin to disintegrate at his tender touch. Now this is the Pistol I fell for. And that’s the thing with teenagers they can go from a fight to I love you in seconds. They tend to lead with their hearts more than their heads. This was frustrating for me to read. But Kaitlyn had something a lot of girls don’t have. She had Brody. Brody had been Kaitlyn’s best friend since childhood and like always these two started to notice each other outside the friend zone. He is her rock, he is the one that is always there beside her along with her brother. This also just happened in my own house so I totally was all about this relationship and seeing how they played out. Brody is what you pray you daughter finds in the high school world. He is the country boy with lots of southern charm. “If I wasn’t feeling butterflies before, Brody has just unleashed an entire swarm inside of me.” The author’s really did a great job portraying high school love. They completely put me in the relationships and made it completely understandable how things happen. And like teenage love and drama there were times I wish I had a fast forward button. Seriously I have been know to tune my own daughter out and I found myself wanting to do that with these kids. HOWEVER, there are things in this book that had me completely hooked to my kindle and they also pulled off a plot twist I never seen coming and it left me screaming WTF and then frantically searching for an answer. The secondary characters were perfect for what the authors are targeting. Jenna completely reminded me of my daughter’s friends. Their friendship was real and completely believable. And they taught me a word I couldn’t wait to share with my daughter. “By the way my wordologist. . . what’s a slouche?” “That would be my latest word for a slut who dates a douche.” I honestly can’t wait to use that word in a future review!! Bottom line I think the authors did an amazing job shining light on a subject a lot of girl’s experience. It is a subject that they were able to make relatable and understandable for every teenage girl (and women). But get ready because they leave you wanting a lot more!!

    Julie and Tracy make up an amazing writing duo going by the pen name JT Authors​ and they are such sweet women, and I love them dearly! Their book has been on my TBR list for a few months and when they contacted the blog about their book I decided now was as good time as any to jump in with both feet! 9 times out of 10 I jump into a book only based on the cover ( I know that goes against the whole saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” but it’s what I do.. sorry!) and this time is no different Julie and Tracy make up an amazing writing duo going by the pen name JT Authors​ and they are such sweet women, and I love them dearly! Their book has been on my TBR list for a few months and when they contacted the blog about their book I decided now was as good time as any to jump in with both feet! 9 times out of 10 I jump into a book only based on the cover ( I know that goes against the whole saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” but it’s what I do.. sorry!) and this time is no different. First off let me say I LOVE the cover.. I’m a big music person so the guitar pulled me in (and probably the main reason it was on my TBR list) When Fall Breaks (Book 1 in the Seasons of Jefferson Series) was released in March of this year and I’ll be honest I’m glad that I waited to read it (sorry ladies.. lol). It does end in a cliff hanger and for that reason I’m glad that I only have to wait until November for book 2! I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!! (So J and T… HURRY UP… please) I immediately fell in love with Kaitlyn and her BGF (Best Guy Friend) Brody. They have a bond like no other as they have been friends since Kait and her twin brother, Caden, were little. He is her best friend, protector, confidant, and personal cheerleader, but when lines begin to blur and then they are left not knowing what to do. Kaitlyn has a boyfriend, Pistol, thats is a Rodeo Coyboy and quiet possibly the character that I would have slapped if he had been real.. lol! Brody has been in love with Kait, or as he calls her Pip, for a while but kept his distance, but now it seems like he can’t keep it together when he is around her. Pistol and Kaitlyn have a… complicated… relationship, one that is volatile and ends up being… Alright, that was close…. I’m not giving that much of the story away! You will need to read the book to know more about what happens between Pistol, Kaitlyn and Brody, and just how the guitar plays into the story! This was a wonderful debut novel for this dynamic duo and I’m sure there the remaining seasons will be just as epic. Now ladies… get off social media, lock yourselves in a room and finish that book (I’m impatiently waiting……)- Katie Buy Links: Amazon: http://amzn.to/1VEEOK1 B&N: http://bit.ly/1MZiLLV
