Our Review

‘Calder had been the one to give me the gift of finding my freedom, but he had also been the one who tried to take it away.’

Falling Embers is the second standalone novel in Catherine Cowles, Tattered and Torn series which we have fallen in utter love with. This Author has managed to combine the perfect mix of romance, suspense, drama, and passion. We love the small-town feel, the family dynamics, the complex relationships, and the intensity of emotions. What another fabulously written addition Falling Embers is to a great series we just can’t get enough of.

“Sometimes, things need to break to be put together right.”

Hadley’s inner turmoil and struggles truly made our hearts break. Her childhood and teenage years were stifled as a consequence of the tragedy that befell her family unit. Her need to experience life -no- her right to live life to its full potential, forming relationships, experiencing milestones, all taken away from her by family regrets and irrational fear. What she had to go through mentally was both frustrating and so bloody sad. Hadley was brave in the face of adversity, bearing the weight of something which was completely out of her control, unable to be who she truly is and live her life to its fullest potential without repercussions. The only person who actually saw Hadley was Calder, her brother’s best mate. He showed her a way to live, to forget about the harsh words so callously thrown at her by those who forgot how to love without restrictions. Until he too abandoned her.

“I’m sorry.”
“For what?”
“Hurting you. You’re the last person I’d ever want to hurt.” He was quiet for a moment, his eyes falling closed. “You were my air.”

Calder Cruz stole our hearts from the get-go. A single dad to beautiful, funny, and adorable twin girls, a firefighter, a hero, and a best friend. We defy anyone not to swoon and fall in love with this wonderful man. He may have made mistakes, but he loves with his whole being once that self-inflicted fog lifts. The only one to fully understand what Hadley has been and is still going through, Calder, despite his own scarred soul and self-harboring guilt, sees the broken spirit needing to fly. Love sneaks up on you when you least expect it, or it was always there, demanding to be seen, heard, and acknowledged. It’s a beautiful thing, it’s a cruel thing, but ultimately, it’s a healing thing!

‘I’d been half in love with Calder Cruz from the moment he’d taught me to chase the stars.’

Catherine Cowles has quickly become one of our favourite Authors. She’s such a wonderful storyteller; creating intriguing characters, intense relationships, and compelling storylines. We simply cannot wait now for this automatic #oneclick Author to release the next installment in the Tattered and Torn series, we have a feeling it’s going to be an intense and emotional journey! Bring it on!!!

“Love is pain. One cannot exist without the other.”


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….
