Two Breaths Too Late

by Rochelle Maya Callen


Young Adult

After years of secrets and bruises, Ellie Walker takes her own life only weeks before her high school graduation. She expected to be free, but instead is forced to face the brokenness she has left behind. 

This story isn't about happily-ever-afters. 
It is about the millions of terrible and beautiful moments that make up a life and the hope that lives in even the darkest of places. 

A Message from the Author:


I let you take me. I handed you a rope, a chair, and a hollow shell of a girl forgetting that I didn't have to be hollow at all.
I press my forehead against the glass. The feeling rakes through me. There is no relief or freedom here, in this in-between, in this limbo. This is not the sanctuary I wanted.
Hope can't be a hollow wish or dream. It needs to be filled, levied, brimming over with intention and action and belief and reaching, reaching, reaching, stretching until your muscles ache because you want it that damn much, and you won't stop reaching until you hold it.
Until it is yours.
I let go too soon.

Melody Anne has released another amazing book to keep you warm through the Holiday Season!

Mega wealthy Tanner Storm has it all – great looks, wealth, and nothing holding him down. Then, his father decides to play games with him and his siblings, handing him an apartment complex in downtown Seattle that 
Tanner wants nothing to do with. When the conditions of his father’s terms ensure that he do something with this building or lose his inheritance, he at first thinks, so what. But, then it becomes a challenge that he has to accept, because he’s never before backed down. He decides to tear down the building and start fresh with something far more appealing that will add to his already fat wallet.

The only problem is that the residents don’t want to leave, and under the contract with his father, he can’t force them out. When he ends up before Judge Kragle from all the complaints made against him, the judge decides the best punishment for him will be two weeks of living in the very apartment complex he despises and two weeks of community service, playing Santa Claus at the mall. Perfect! This is not the Christmas of his dream.
The plot thickens when he meets his neighbor, Kyla and falls into instant lust. Will this turn out to be Tanner’s secret angel, or will he forget all about her the minute he leaves?

 He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.

Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.

Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.

What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.

Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.

Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope. 


Holy Cow! After reading this book I could definitely use a drink!!!

I absolutely fell in love. Most romance seems to be one person fighting the other about their feelings, but On The Rocks is far from that. However that doesn't mean it's all rainbows and butterflies.

Gabby is a tough cookie with a heart of gold. I can surely relate to how she doesn't like to hurt people, but will stand up for herself. She seriously is my kind of girl. She protects herself when she feels necessary, even if her ways are the best out there, especially when it comes to her heart. Yep that's right I relate to that too!

Hunter is her best friend's brother. Seriously gorgeous and to top it off pro surfer. I think my heart just fluttered! He never wanted to hurt Gabby, but he knew he couldn't give her what she deserved. Now he is back and he can't see continuing this hate game they have had going on for the last 5 years.

I mean seriously though, do you think she could keep up her hate against him forever? I mean even I have heard there is a fine line between love and hate. It is clearly stemmed from the love she feels. Of course he couldn't just stay away either. Even after all these years, they both want each other about as much as they wanted each other then. The big question is will it be sex only or can it be more?

"My entire body shudders, not just from the contact of her warmth surrounding me, but from those two words she just uttered. My name... held with reverence and desire."

Either way. They now know how each other feels. Although, Hunter may have been privy to her feeling before she even knew he was an A-hole! Their time together will be one to remember. They both will be uncomfortable at times, but seriously what good book would have them perfectly content? Although some of the time they aren't comfortable is just because of some adventure. ;)

On The Rocks is absolutely worth reading. Sawyer's books always possess the power to draw you in and keep you bound. I laughed my ass of quite a bit and even cussed a few characters out. Not that they really got the message. The book is definitely well written and the characters are pretty much all on my fave list. I could kick one in the bum still by the end, but he can resolve his issues in the next book ;) Eeek, yep excited for that one too!

On the Rocks in written from both Hunter and Gabby's POVs. You will seriously see every bit of damage that Hunter caused her by rejecting her and you will also see just how much power she holds over Hunter. Yep, he is a sucker!!! Now go read the book. I really think I may have to read it again! Yup, that good!!
