Next Time I Fall by Scarlett Cole Release Blitz

Next Time I Fall by Scarlett Cole. Available Now.


Love sucks.
Especially when your own brother and fellow band-mate stole the woman you were in love with.
Sitting in a Michigan recording studio with him, singing lyrics he wrote about her, is a special kind of torture.
The only thing more frustrating might be the producer’s assistant who radiates sunshine and has more motivational quotes than a greeting card company.


Love rocks.
Heavy guitars, a voice with the burn of pure single malt, and lyrics that distil the meaning of love are the greatest things.
If only the man singing didn’t have a temperament as foul as the Michigan winter. Jase sitting in her car while yelling at her to get him out of there is a surprise. Why she hits the accelerator and takes him to her father’s cabin on the lake is an even greater mystery.

How was she supposed to know they’d end up snowed in for days? Or that when they got out again, their relationship, and her views on love, would be changed irrevocably?

It's raw. It's real. It's rock and roll.

“I feel like I should write a song about wanting to do really dirty things to your song-writing partner.” – Jase Palmer. Next Time I Fall.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series, and I absolutely think that you need to read them in order. The set up in book one is essential to get the whole dynamic, the problems between the brothers, the relationships across the family, the importance of Nan, and the chance that they finally get to make it big due to, really, a fluke use of one of their songs online.

I love rock star romances; they are often gritty, most often due to drink and drugs. This story deals with the everyday issues of life, as well as the tough life of a band who earn their living working as decorators for an uncle, and lugging their kit around the country when they get gigs. Now as things are about to change, they are in the worst possible place within the band. I love how much detail we get, especially now that we are seeing things from Jase's perspective.

As we learn just how badly treated he was as a small child, it is difficult not to be heart-broken for him. That he got to the stage of being able to be open about it is all thanks to Cerys. She is a really lovely person, beautifully brought to life by the author. I was really invested in her gaining the experience she needed, as well as her getting through to Jase and making him understand how he could marry his talent with the band as a whole. It is delicious that they get to indulge in their mutual attraction, as well as the more practical breakthroughs.

I loved that he didn't suddenly change completely, and his bandmates couldn't quite believe the attitude reversal, even if they had a lot of regret. I am definitely excited to see how the rest of the guys will find their way to calmer lives. Cerys is going to be a great influence, that is for sure.

Really good read, thank you, Scarlett Cole.

Angry, volatile and acerbic, Jase isn’t great at relationships. At the end of the first book, he had fallen out with his band and his nan was the only person still talking to him. At the start of his own book, it is only his commitment to the band’s record deal that forces him to remain civil with his bandmates. Until Cerys. Cerys sees something in Jase that no one else does and she’s not afraid to tell him some necessary home truths.

I wasn’t quite sure how Jase was going to work as a romantic lead, but he’s surprisingly loveable. Like all of Scarlett Cole’s characters, there is trauma beneath his anger. His story isn’t easy, but it feels truthful and real. Cerys has her own demons and together they help each other make peace with their pasts.

I really love the behind the scenes look at record production and recording. Cerys’ passion for her work is amazing – it’s a process I’ve never really thought about and it was fascinating to learn about.

I love how Scarlett Cole has made this series wonderfully British. The details are exact, and parts of this series feel like a love letter to Manchester. There aren’t many writers who can convincingly switch between countries and cultures like Cole.



“You asked what frees you from anger. It’s love, Jase.” – Matt Palmer. Next Time I Fall.


Author Bio

The tattoo across my right hip says it all really. A Life Less Ordinary. Inked by the amazingly talented Luke Wessman at the Wooster Street Social Club (a.k.a. New York Ink). Why is it important? Well, it sums up my view on life. That we should all aspire to live a life that is less boring, less predictable. Be bold, and do something amazing. I’ve made some crazy choices. I’ve been a car maker, a consultant, and even a senior executive at a large retailer running strategy. Born in England, spent time in the U.S. and Japan, before ending up in Canada where I met my own, personal hero – all six and a half feet of him. Both of us are Scorpios! Yeah, I know! Should have checked the astrological signs earlier, but somehow it works for us. We have two amazing kids, who I either could never part with or could easily be convinced to sell on e-bay.

I’ve wanted to be a writer for a really long time. Check through my office cupboards or my computer and you’ll find half written stories and character descriptions everywhere. Now I'm getting the chance to follow that dream.
