Stealing Home (St. Michaels Duet, #2) by Harlow Cole

Stealing Home (St. Michaels Duet, #2)

Ashley: I’ve given up. On my childish dreams. On getting out of this town. On love. On him. On everything. I’m barely treading water. Brayden: I’m the man with it all. The pinstriped jersey covering my back garners easy cash, flashy cars and fast women. My gilded name drapes over the city in neon. I have everything. Everything, except the thing I crave most. Ashley Foster. There’s one addiction I never tried to beat. They say you can neve...

  • Ellie
    So, yeah. Read part one - forgot to mention in my review that it was a cliffy. I can't be blamed for that, though. There was too much shit in that shitshow more important to pass along than the fact that there was MORE.Because honestly, a reader with good sense would have run screaming from a continuation of this sexist, anti-feminist stew of twat-brained morons and misogyny.I, however, have clearly taken leave of my good sense in favour of masoc...

    What an ending and what a duet! It was that fantastic. It’s the perfect sequel, a truly wonderful and epic conclusion to Ashley and Brayden’s whirlwind story. This book is a raw, emotional, passionate and angsty read. A story that is so unique and special. It's both heartbreaking and heartwarming and at times quite confronting.Ashley and Brayden have not had an easy road to love and while there were many factors affecting them being together,...

    Harlow Cole has brought it home with this fantastic continuation and conclusion of Brayden and Ashley’s story. Overflowing with passion, angst, love, and so many other emotions, Stealing Home was everything I could have wanted for this couple and more. Once again author Harlow Cole masterfully infuses so much emotion into her story that it has a way of spilling over and wrapping the reader in it. Through flawlessly placed details and exceptiona...
  • Wendy Livingstone
    This is the 2nd part of this phenomenal duet, and Brayden and Ashley’s story continues. I never thought that this gifted author would be able to surpass the perfection of “Interference”, but my word; it has been achieved!! This is a truly beautifully written story which is filled with angst, passion, emotion, and is a raw, gritty and thrilling, poignant love story which pulls at the heartstrings. I was completely enthralled throughout this ...

    Original reviewThis book was provided by the author through Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Harlow Cole and Give Me Books Promotions!Stealing Home is the second book in the St. Michaels Duet and continues the story of Brayden and AshelyStealing Home was yet another amazing book and the perfect sequel for this series. Interference, the first book, ended with Brayden saying ‘I love you’ to someone and I was ...
  • Aysha
    overall a good series even though I felt like the first one was drawn out and the backstory should not have been that long. I think because I read both books back to back I still had leftover anger for Brayden so I felt like Ashley accepted him back way early in the 2nd book, that I wanted to smack her.also, her seeing his picture with someone and that text when she picked up his phone not knowing who the girl was to Brayden and still going ahead...
  • Brandy Roberts
    I was really happy with how stealing home turned out it isn't a standalone you need to read book one first . This is a second chance romance let me just a lot of stuff happens in book one that frustrated me beyond belief to were I didn't know if I wanted to read this one but I was happy that I gave this one a chance . The hero really redeemed himself in this one my heart really broke for a certain character I hope he finds happiness . I can't wai...
  • Tanja Kezmic
    The first book almost ended me but this one finished me off to declare that I FRICKING LOVE this duet. This second book is all about doing it all in ordered to bring back the ONE to you. This story is mainly about how struggling with guilt can sometimes blind you to see the light at the end of the tunnel. When I finished the first book I was not a big Brayden fan to be honest. But I had a feeling that he’ll change his life around so he could be...

    Really good duet! Stealing Home is a good conclusion to Ash and Brayden’s story Really good duet! Stealing Home is a good conclusion to Ash and Brayden’s story 💙
  • Lisa Acosta
    An amazing story, gripped me from the start!The story is amazing and had me wanting more and more. The love they shared despite the obstacles they faced as intriguing and swoon worthy. I loved every moment!
  • Almendra.
    I fell in love with this series the same way Brayden fell in love with Ash— it was just meant to be and there was no going back from it. Brayden and Ash went to hell and back into each others arms and I honestly cannot imagine a different universe where that's not where they belong. They found home. I miss them already. I fell in love with this series the same way Brayden fell in love with Ash— it was just meant to be and there was no going...
  • Melissa Rob
    I was seriously shocked when I learned that this was Harlow Cole's debut novel. What an amazing way to break through in the book world. This duet kicked ass! I look forward to reading more of Harlow's books in the future!
  • Just Living A Thousand Lives
    I must fully admit, where Interference left off, I felt a little broken. Disconnected. Left behind. The story of Dallas and Soot was not an easy one to swallow. There was so much angst and uncertainty plaguing their younger selves. And picking up some 1468 days later, they are still electric. Call the fire department because they are going to end up burning that old boathouse to the ground. (Not actually, that's not a spoiler.. Metaphorically spe...
  • HeartBreaker
    You know that feeling when you read a really good book that ends on cliffhanger and then author comes back with the second book and you are completely blown away?That's exactly how I felt while reading this.I was afraid that the second book won't be as good as the first one,but rest assured because Stealing Home is one freaking amazing book.After that tragic end of Interference ,book #1 in St. Michaels Duet,Brayden has left town.Before he fled th...
  • Mojo_Mama
    DNF 92%Considering the amount of detailed OW bullshit we slogged through in the first novel I felt there was a complete lack of info on his years apart from the h. I didn’t need on page deets...but I absolutely needed to know how much of his father’s path he’d walked. Especially when she continually feared the amount of women he’d been with while he was gone. She makes references to his OW throughout this novel that he never elaborates on...
  • Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
    5 GAZILLION STARS201I am literally trying to figure out where to start on this whole review, because I have so many thoughts consuming me, so please bare with me. My mind can not process the fact that this duet is this authors debut. It is mind boggling to be honest. Harlow Cole's writing is something you see from a seasoned author, not from someone just starting off. I have honest to God, not seen such passion used in writing before. This author...
  • Jennifer Pierson
    Stealing Home is the conclusion to the St. Michaels Duet, so YOU MUST READ Interference (Book 1) FIRST, as it tells the story of how Ashley & Brayden got to the place did in this book. It's a complicated past, so again, I cannot stress enough that you have to read Book 1 FIRST! I'm not really into giving too many details as it would totally come out as spoilers, especially if you didn't read the first book yet, but Brayden has a big mountain to c...
  • Misty (Reds Romance Reviews)
    In this compelling sequel to Interference readers will rejoin Ashley and Brayden on their heartrending journey, and bare witness to their emotionally charged reunion. As soon as I my eyes started to digest the words on the first page, my heart started to remember the hurt and agonizing pain from the past and I knew this one was about to reek havoc on my heart all over again. Watching these two try to come to terms with their past, embrace this se...
  • Kelly
    Ashley and Brayden are not the same kids they used to be. Ashley is struggling to hold her life and her family together. Brayden is a big shot baseball player who has injured his shoulder and has come home to get back his girl. This book broke my heart and pieced it all back together. I couldn't blame Ashley for how she reacted after seeing Brayden again and I loved how Brayden fought for Ashley's forgiveness. This book hit a raw spot with me and...
  • Shannon
    WOW!!! All the stars to Harlow Cole for Stealing Home, the second book in the St. Michaels Duet. Stealing Home picks up after a lot of loss and hurt and when it seems like things between Brayden and Ash can never be repaired. This book takes you through the emotional journey of growth and acceptance and ultimately forgiveness. While nothing was the same for any of the characters coming out of Interference, Brayden's determination to care for and ...
  • Ayushi
    Spoiler alert read on ur own risk .......Idk how people are giving this book 5star or 4star I can't lie. Sorry. Idk where to start first of all the heroine was so idk how to say this without sounding offensive but she is so stupid. Like throughout this book i was hoping for her to finally grow a backbone. I mean the dude has mommy issues and daddy issues i get it. But that doesn't give him the right to coke up and drive. Idk how he is not in jail...
  • Melliane
    Mon avis en FrançaisMy English reviewI had a good time with the first volume, even if I was very surprised to have something more YA. Of course, there was also a lot of drama that allowed us to understand how our characters got there. How they came to this first chapter of Volume One. And I admit that at the end, I was really curious to find out what was going to happen, what Ashley and Brayden were going to do because things are far from simple...

    Stealing Home is the conclusion of the book Interference by Harlow Cole and let me tell you, you aren't ready for it!In the first book, Ashley and Brayden had to go by different paths because of the tragic accident that happened. Now Nathan can't walk, his career is only a memory, their mother is dead, their father is absent and Ashley is smiling through the pain. What happens when the man, blamed for this tragedy, comes back? I will tell you- ev...
  • Kari Hansen
    I had my doubts that Brayden would be able to redeem himself what happened in the first book of the duet, but we soon realize that he is no longer that man. He may appear to have it all with the illustrious career, wealth and beautiful woman inside he is broken, and everything seems immaterial without Ashley. He is determined to show Ashley that he can be the man she needs so that they can have their second chance.Ashley has been struggling since...
  • Jo
    Wow.This is an exceptional conclusion to Ashley and Brayden's story. The first book in the duet was so strong in its storytelling, that I was fully prepared for this to be an anticlimax.It wasn't. Quite the opposite. The author certainly didn't let up in the delivery. A wide variety of emotions played out (including a few tears) as I was reading, and I loved every second of it.The broken boy that Brayden was in book 1 is not in evidence. Instead,...
  • Ladawn Presas
    Stealing HomeBy Harlow ColeBoy does this title match the book. Stealing home is the best scariest baseball play and life play there is. This book is what true love is all about. “I promise to stay away from your brother, but I won’t promise to steer clear of you. We both know I couldn’t if I tried.”Be still my heart! That line. Damn it hes growing on me too!Stay. Stay. Stay.NOTESI hate being left in suspense what happened? Tell me now dam...
  • Tania's Book Blog
    I was anxious for this conclusion and I wasn’t disappointed. This ending made me falling in love with both Brayden and Ashley even more. It’s still very emotional much more than Book 1 but you get to see their growth especially Brayden. Lots of secrets come full circle, issues from the past are resolved but what I enjoyed was that it wasn’t instantly. It took lots and lots and lots of groveling and proving himself to Ashley that he was a di...
  • Sassafrass (Candace)
    Brayden stole my heart again while he stole home! This book picks up a few years after Interference ended. Stealing Home was the perfect conclusion to this amazing duet! I loved every moment of it. Brayden is atoning for his sins, trying to fix what’s broken, and make wrongs right again. Ashley is fighting him tooth and nail and rightfully so. Family isn’t always blood and when it looks like all hope is lost, sometimes we have to swallow our ...
  • Jenna Tomlinson
    Start about finishing strong!This is the first duet I actually enjoyed. THE FIRST!I don’t think I’ve finished the other duets I’ve tried either....STEALING HOME tugged me into it with the introductory:“I am a ghost ship now. Abandoned at sea. Left to pray the stars will lead me home.”—————————-“I am the the ashes left behind to smolder and wonder if I’ll ever get another spark.”I don’t think I’ll ever be able...
