2.5 STARSI would beg, plead, and sell my soul to the devil for one more chance with Frankie.This book had me at the blurb. I'm a sucker for a tear jerker and emotional second chance romance. The more it makes me hurt, the better. I'm a romance masochist that way. Unfortunately, as much as I adore this author's writing, this book fell entirely flat for me.The story was predictable and almost formulaic. It had a silly misunderstanding that could have been resolved with one conversation that was st [...]
This one hurts. Mostly cause I was really looking forward to it and well it disappointed me greatly. You all know how much I love my second chance stories but this one was not for me. Again, it could be a case of it’s me and not the book. First off, this one is extra OTT dramatic. So much drama, so many “secrets”, big misunderstandings that could’ve been resolved earlier are just dragged and dragged. The entire secret was so silly, and this super smart heroine, is the silliest of them al [...]

I've never read anything by Rebecca Shea before, but when I got the opportunity to review this title I jumped on it. One of the reasons, yes, the beautiful cover, but the blurb seemed like something I would totally love. Second chance romance is my crack!I think this was a good sampling of the author's writing and although it's a bit more angsty than I was in the mood to read, it's a testament to how intrigued she could keep me in the unfolding events and back story that I gobbled this up qu [...]

There’s something to be said about an author who can create an emotion response and draw you into the story from the very first paragraph. Rebecca Shea had absolutely no problem doing exactly that straight out of the gate with Fault Lines. Frankie’s emotionally-fraught starts with a bang and continues to drop bombshells until the very end of the story. This one is a rollercoaster of emotions and I’m glad I buckled up for the ride.Frankie has been through the wringer most of her life. A mis [...]
3.5 Stars Once again - another book that I enjoyed while reading, but it's one that I don't find myself remembering in a short time or wanting to go back and re-read because it was that damn good. And it's these reviews that I hate the most writing.I love Rebecca and her books - she writes beautiful stories. And while I am reading, I am so into the story and the characters and how everything pans out. But once it's over, I move on and forget about it in a few weeks. :/ UGHRebecca gives us a stor [...]
3,8. Livro bem escrito, com certeza. Mas achei muito mais do mesmo.
I can't enjoy a book if I despise the heroine. Skipping/review/show/review/show
I was really enjoying this book up until Frankie's big reveal & that killed it for me.
This review was originally posted on Cocktails and BooksI've been on a second-chance romance kick lately so when I was given the chance to read this one, I jumped on it.Ten years prior, Cole had purposefully broken Frankie's heart. She didn't know why he did what he did, but it caused her to run away from their hometown and abandon her family to hide from the pain she still wasn't over. But when a family emergency brings her back home, she's forced to face why she left and how to reconcile t [...]
I’ve been waiting on the edge of my seat for Rebecca Shea to finish writing this book, and she did not disappoint! It’s an emotional second-chance romance with a happily ever after. There’s nothing better, in my eyes. I loved the characters, although I do wish Cole would have had to fight a little harder to win Frankie back. I know she loved him, and there was no way they could NOT be together, but I wish she would have made him work a little harder after how badly she was hurt. And then t [...]
Beautiful, touching, second-chance romance. It's a story of selfless love and redemption that will surprise you and leave you smiling.Curl up and spend some time with this five-star page-turner You won't be sorry!
Book Review: 4 StarsIf you could sum up Fault Lines in three words, what would they be?Consequences of bad decisions! What did you like best about this story?I loved Frankie and Cole’s relationship. They had a beautiful connection when they were teens, a lovely relationship and big dreams for the future, but one day everything was over. Both their hearts were broken and almost their lives, too. Ten years later, they needed to face the truth of what happened in the past, accept their decisions [...]

She has a new life, living her new dreams in California, but her mom needs her home so she will do her best to be there for her mom while avoiding everything she ran from so many years ago. Cole Ryan hasn’t forgotten Frankie, even though he knows her leaving town was probably for the best. But he has his own reasons for the actions that chased Frank [...]
Fault Lines is a second chance romance complete with angst and some emotional tugs on the heart. Rebecca certainly knows how to deliver everything you'd expect in this particular trope. And therein lies my problem. It's a good story, no doubt, but there is also nothing in particalar that makes this read stand apart from the rest.This is a well written yet predictable read and I know there are plenty of readers who eat up this kind of book. Not me. I needs stories and authors that dare to color o [...]

Love, lies, betrayal and second chancesFrankie left her life behind, but when something brings her back to the town she thought she left behind for good, she knew she would have to face her past which included Cole Ryan.There was so much emotion I felt while reading this story, from sadness, to love and to anger. I felt like I could connect with both the main characters, but I did find myself finding one person in the wrong more than the other and it might shock people when I say it was Frankie. [...]
I say this every time about Rebecca Shea's work- the feels. I know I'm not prego. It's not that time of the month either. But no matter how hard I tried I could not fight the tears. Tears of joy, despair, longingTears of hopelessness, pain, loss, and heartbreak (not in that order either!)Fault Lines is such a descriptive way to explain this book. Just wow!There are some incredible quotes that would explain my vague comments but they need to be read in context in order to really feel them. Sigh.L [...]

***ARC Provided by the Author and InkSlinger PR***3.5 StarsThe title of this book has so much meaning. So much is broken, shifted, left in a new place, and altered from it's original form by the time you finish this book.There are so many things, so many layers, to this book and all of them focus on Cole, Frankie and choices that they made 10 years ago, as young adults. Things come full circle, some things are resolved, and some things are set into a new normal, while not resolved they are in a [...]
I’m not sure what it is about second chances and friends to lovers, but they go together like peanut butter and jelly. They make me feel all the gooeyness that contemporary romance offers and it seems like these tropes might be the flavors du jour, which I have no problem with.Quick recap: childhood friends-turned-lovers Frankie and Cole are ripped apart by consequence and reunite ten years later. They’ve both moved on with their lives yet a piece of their hearts still live in the past. Fran [...]
2.5 starsI have really enjoyed everything I have read by this author, but this one was meh. The hero lacked depth and was quite the stereotype and the heroine, oh the heroine was a hot mess.Soooo a woman who works as a prosecutor in L.A. county turns into a teary mess when she sees her long lost love who betrayed her? I really do loathe weak heroines. Her mother had it right when she said to fall apart in private and keep your chin up in public. Way to go Mama!There was just not a whole lot of n [...]
Yeah, I didn't like it

A surprise visit home from college leads Frances (Frankie) to believe that Cole is cheating on her. Crushed, she left and never looked back.

***This and other reviews can be found at imasweetandsassybookwhore ****ARC*Rebecca Shea never ceases to amaze me. I have loved her as an author for years now and honestly I think Fault Lines is her best book to date. I didn’t want to put it down. I was consumed, enthralled, addicted, whatever word you want to use to describe it but I kept my kindle in my hands when I was cooking, while I was on my treadmill, when I was letting my dogs outside, you get the picture. Make sure you have nothing i [...]
“I knew every inch of her back then, and my body trembles in remembrance as I watch her, longing for her like I did all those years ago. The longing never really went away.”“It’s rare in life that we get an opportunity to right our wrongs.”“This feeling is what I want to remember forever. Knees weak, heart racing, warm skin, and heavy breathing.”“Cole is a scab covering my broken heart that never fully healed. The kind that pulls up at the edged when bumped slightly and begins to [...]
Any author who writes a man to cry is gold in my book. It speaks to the emotional impact of the plot. We women, in general, cry all the time, for a variety of reasons, I did several time whilst reading Fault Lines. But men, society teaches us that men shouldn’t cry, that they are weak if they do. Nothing about the men, characters or plot in this story are weak. It’s rare for me to set a large chuck of time, about 4 hours in a day to read a book but after only 20% I decided I had to. Normally [...]
