Review: FORCE OF IMPACT by Stephanie Nichole

Series: The James Brother Series

Genre: Contemporary Romance Publication Date: November 5, 2018

One night over a decade ago Bowie James’ life changed forever. Flashing lights, cops, ambulances and three body bags left his world turned upside down and the love of his life Hollis Foust on the run. Throughout the years Bowie has wondered and even searched for Hollis without any success and just when he’s about to give up hope she walks back into his life. Bowie’s little brother, Ace hired a new tattoo artist for his shop, Inkredible, only to find that Holly Sullivan is actually Hollis Foust all grown up. Bowie has spent years trying to move past that fateful night and the memories of Hollis that still haunt him, but now that she’s back, does that mean he gets the second chance he’s never allowed himself to even dream of? However, Hollis’ disappearance left Bowie’s heart and trust shattered but could Hollis be the one to repair the damage? Hollis’ life has been anything but easy and the last ten years have been no different. The memories of Bowie and his love were the only things that kept her striving to get through it all. All of her daydreams about being reunited with Bowie couldn’t have prepared her for the war of emotions it causes though.

Rating ★★★★

A second chance romance that will make you bawl your eyes out with both sadness and joy! Hollis and Bowie met at 15/17. Bowie acted as a protector against her harsh upbringing with drug selling parents. Soon after meeting her family is murdered and she lives in constant fear so chooses to leave Bowie behind. 10 years later she returns and they try to reconnect. This is a fast paced romance leaving you constantly wanting more. Hollis is strong beyond belief choosing love over fear and Bowie is sweet, hot still but definitely sweet, he protects Hollis wanting the best for her while understanding her need for independence. He's considerate and there's this heart wrenching scene in the book where he asks for permission to marry her and when you get to this part trust me your heart will melt with love and sadness all at once. This was such an enjoyable yet emotional rollercoaster of a book and I would recommend this to anyone who loves second chance romance with a surprising plot twist and a lovely family dynamic between main and secondary characters.

Rating ★★★★

Seriously, each with their own troubles and tough exterior. But when they love they love fiercely. This one nearly made my heart stop. I can’t wait for Javi.

Rating ★★★★

Where can I get a James brother????? Bowie and Hollis were high school sweethearts until a tragedy tore them apart. Ten years later, Hollis is back in town. Feelings still linger for Bowie but he has so many questions. Can they put the past behind them to find away to move forward? Or will Hollis' demons tear them apart for good? Such a good story! I love this series!! And not just because I'm an 80's music junkie either. The James brothers have big hearts, drive fast and love hard. All the characters are so good!
