    I loved this triumphant return to Cliffside Bay!

    This author has a real talent for taking people who don't think that they're right for each other and showing just how well-suited they are deep down. I love how totally honest, transparent, and vulnerable Rafael and Lisa are with each other, and just with each other. It shows true emotional intimacy, and establishes that as a solid foundation for their relationship. The tragedies that color their outlook in life are both in the present and recalled from the past. Each is sensitively handled, and helps us to understand the emotional wounds they are recovering from. The romance itself is sweet and soul-satisfying, even without as many of the intimate details as we've seen in earlier books in this series. As the first in this new phase of the series, we're introduced to all five of the Wolves as well as the circumstances that bring them together and the foundation that will bind them even more in the future. We have a few new faces added to the mix, and hints that some familiar characters will be getting their shot at an HEA in future books. I'm hooked already, and can't wait to read more in this captivating world. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Good start to second half of the series

    This is the first installment of The Wolves, which is also known sort of as Cliffside Bay, Part 2. This part of the series features other characters who know the Dogs, all of whom were featured in the first half of the series. They are more friends and family who had all had more bit roles, perhaps, in earlier books, or are just being introduced to us now. You can still read this one as a standalone, but definitely will enjoy it more if you have read the first books in the series, to really know all of these characters. Quick trigger warning: This story does contain a mass shooting. It's not prolonged and not full of a bunch of gory details. But if such scenes bother you, either skip this book or skip the beginning part and enjoy the rest of the beautiful love story. I did okay with this scene in this book. This story skips ahead about a year. Lisa is one of Maggie's friends from New York, who is looking to start over. Lisa is understandably suffering from PTSD after being involved in a shooting at a concert. She is supposed to be going on a media tour to promote her new movie and is understandably extra nervous to do so. Rafael is Kara and Brody's bodyguard, but is asked to go on the tour with her for some moral support and protection, just in case. It's a little bit more awkward than it would be otherwise, because Lisa had already asked him out and his gut instincts made him turn her down, though he totally hast he hots for her. He is the perfect person to accompany her because as a veteran soldier, he understands the PTSD. Plus with the undeniable attraction between the two of them, it is guaranteed to cause plenty of sparks. Adding to the chaos, Lisa's twin brother David is dealing with finding out his wife has been dealing drugs behind his back for extra money. So there's a lot of drama going on in this little world! Lisa may be becoming famous, but she still hasn't let go of her icky middle school awkward phase that is still prominent in her mind. Rafael's past comes back to haunt him at one point. But the two of them are able to lean on each other and help each other through all of their traumas. And you've gotta love a man who loves his mama. If you've read the River Valley series, keep an eye out for a crossover. It made me smile. So it's yet another great story in this series that I have come to love so much. Well worth curling up with in the evenings.

    The beginning of a second chance ...

    Welcome to Cliffside Bay. It can either break your heart, uplift your soul or help you find your way home. If your lucky, it can help you do all three. Thompson is back with more heartache and drama in the tiny town were hearts do to heal. Missed is the beginning of a second chance for two broken hearts that have lost their way. Lisa and Rafael find reason in the painful and support in each others arms. I always walk into a Tess Thompson novel, knowing I'll leave a piece of my heart behind when it's over.
