Hitting the Wall

(Stonecut County #1)

by Cate C. Wells 

She’s not a secret. She’s a second chance.

Six years ago, the good, upstanding men of Stonecut County ran me off. I took a secret with me. An inconvenient truth they wanted buried.
Actions have consequences. Their perfect golden boy maybe wasn’t so perfect after all.
Then life hands me one too many lemons. I’m forced to go back, and in Stonecut, nothing ever changes.

Kellum Wall is still golden.

I’m still unwanted.

And falling for his cocksure smile will most certainly ruin my life all over again.

I believe there are still good men left in this world, and I strive to be one. I was raised to live by a code. God and country. Protect and serve.

I always do the right thing, even when it’s hard–and yet, somehow, I’ve made an unforgivable mistake.

I want what I lost. The woman, the child, the white picket fence. But it’s not gonna come easy.

Shay’s a survivor. She doesn’t believe in happily ever after, and earning her trust might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

She’s got my heart in her hands, though, and this time–I’m not letting her slip through my fingers.

Hitting the Wall is a steamy, small town romance featuring a secret baby and a second chance at love. It’s the first book in the Stonecut County series. Intended only for adult readers.

HEA guaranteed.


4.5 Hitting the Wall Stars

Hitting the Wall is the first book in the Stonecut County Series by Cate C. Wells. It was my first read of Wells and got me hooked on her books. I went back and read her Steel Bones Motorcycle Club series.

Shay mistakeningly trusts someone she thinks is good and gets herself into some big trouble. This trouble gets her cut off from her grandfather and she has to leave town. 6 years later her grandfather is dead and she has nowhere to go but his trailer. As run down as it is, its the only thing she has. She thinks after so much time no one will recognise her or care that she has returned.

There’s no more time for pretty stories. Kellum Wall isn’t coming back to save me. He’s no knight in shining armor. He’s a prettier version of all the men who’ve tromped through Mama’s life, all sweet talk until they get what they wanted, and then they’re gone.

Kellum thinks he’s leads a good life and always does the right thing even if that right thing is hard to do. But life hasn’t gone to plan for him. He hasn’t got the white picket fence or the family that he always wanted,

This was such a great read and I really enjoyed the small town feels and the storyline. The secondary characters where amazing and made the books so good. I’m really looking forward to more in this series.
