    Well, well well. That was not what I expected ..... at all. This is how you write YA/NA and do it well. Absolutely fantastic and I am SO glad I waited till Walkwas out before reading this, else I would have done my E-Reader some serious damage. The author warns in the blurb this is going to hurt, she was not wrong. For a girl who is not a novella fan and loathes cliffhangers, this was fantastic and I bloody loved it. Well, well well.

    Short but powerful. We get to know the boys, Con and Stone, so much better. It's the perfect background story to make readers interested in the next two series releases. Short but powerful.

    Ok Cora Brent was right...this one hurt but it was a total necessity. The Gentry Boys became a favorite of mine as soon as I read the first book. I then fell in love with Stone and Conway in Hold. This one tells the actual story of the events in Hold. I can't give many details without giving spoilers but I will say my heart broke for all the characters in this one. I can't wait for each of their stories to come out. While the story is heartbreaking, the writing was exceptional. I highly recommend Ok Cora Brent was right...this one hurt but it was a total necessity.

    okay so it's not often that I don't have to reread a whole series before I read the most recent, but not with this series I remember it all! love these Gentry's. But I digress! so I was given this arc for an honest review. I LOVED it! although we knew how it ended, we didn't know how we got there, now we do, and what a story. Sad but soooo good. Cora Brent writes these characters and it's obvious she loves each and every one, which makes us as readers fall head over heels also. it's a gift. one okay so it's not often that I don't have to reread a whole series before I read the most recent, but not with this series I remember it all! love these Gentry's.

Well after reading this you will understand why. to sum up- sad gripping painful AWESOME!

    I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Cora Brent writes another amazing book! A very emotional read. Cross provides us with a look inside the complicated relationship between brothers Conway and Stone and their neighbour Erin. It ties up loose ends we had after reading the previous book Hold. I'm looking forward to reading more books by Cora Brent, a true talent. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Cora Brent writes another amazing book! A very emotional read.

    I skipped this one for over a year, because I'm just not into love triangles and judging by the way the last one ended and cover of this one, I just thought for sure, this was a triangle between brothers that I couldn't stand it if they had animosity towards each other. Fair warning, Cora Brent did tell us that she was going to break our hearts in this one and she did. For me though, it was only because of them boys. Con and his brother Stone... Don't get me wrong, I didn't want Erin to die, (not I skipped this one for over a year, because I'm just not into love triangles and judging by the way the last one ended and cover of this one, I just thought for sure, this was a triangle between brothers that I couldn't stand it if they had animosity towards each other.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't want Erin to die, (not even a spoiler because come on...it was in the last book), but I never connected with her. She was selfish, in my opinion... Is that crazy? Am I just in a mood tonight or something? Maybe... but I just didn't get the appeal... First love and all that? Sure, I was gutted for Con that he lost her, but I hated every second of the doubt that I had between her and Stone. I didn't want to think that Stone would do that to his brother and in the end, I was right.... We had to get to the VERY end to figure it out though and that drove me crazy and made me wonder what reason's by the end I'd have to not like the chick..... I dunno... it was a heartbreaking story. I hated how terribly the boys' mom treated them, Conway especially. I hate that he's had so much bad in his life and then the two things he loved most in the world he doubted and then lost and then I hated that he was going through the loss of both of them without Stone. I cannot wait to see what happens next. I hope they both get everything they deserve and I cannot wait to watch it happen. 4 stars from me! And I hope their mom gets a dose of her own stupidity and a slap upseide the head by that little B we like to call Karma. She'd deserve all of it and then some. End rant.

    Cora Brent outdid herself yet again with Cross....this book was everything she warned us about and more. Reading the backstory on these 3 young people (Con, Stone & Erin) made everything more real. I mean in "Hold" you knew there was an accident, you knew the outcome but you didn't know everything that led to it all. Personally for me by having Erin's POV, it made everything hit you more, it meant more cause you got to know her, you got to know what was going on inside her & you began to care fo Cora Brent outdid herself yet again with Cross....this book was everything she warned us about and more.

    his book serves as a crossover from the stories about the Gentry triplets Cord, Creed, and Chase and their cousin Deck to the individual stories of the younger Gentry cousins Stone and Conway.

They were still in high school and we learn what really happened between Erin and stonewall on the night everything went wrong... I knew that he wouldn't have cheated with his brothers girl..

    Dont judge a book by its cover. Omg! Poor Erin had so much living left to do. Conway and Stonewalls relationship was tested in a way it has never been tested before. How can a brothers bond fight through this misunderstanding? And what does one do when they find out the truth about family rumors like Conway did? This was an amazing novella!

    I have to say I was nervous to read this book knowing what the outcome was from reading the Gentry Boys series in order. I'm so glad I did because the raw emotions that Cora Brent put into this story is amazing. Stone, Conway, and Erin all come from some kind of pain and the way this ended was not what I expected. I can't wait to continue reading this series and more from Cora Brent. I have to say I was nervous to read this book knowing what the outcome was from reading the Gentry Boys series in order.

    :( This one hurt... but I was warned :( I liked the idea of things not being what they seemed. For a moment I thought CB regretted what she wrote before and was trying to turn it around, but the more I read the more I realized that this story was all about perception, and how our insecurities can cloud our judgement. It was sad but powerful, now I need to read the next ones.

    I am in love with the Gentry boys, and I'm glad we have more to meet. This is such a heartbreaking story, which you know part of from the other Gentry books, but this one gives a lot of explanation on the way things happened.

    Very emotional read! This is not a HEA read, yet I am so glad to have experienced this story. It will break a readers heart. I am looking forward to reading the next books in this series to find out if Cora Brent puts it back together. The Gentry brothers need a HEA ending.

    Well. That's not what I expected at all. On reading about the accident initially, I was upset (kinda) but reading this and getting more of the back story...it really did hurt, just like she said it would. Well.

    Still unclear I'm slightly disappointed because even though I know much more of what happened that day now I still don't know why if Stone wouldn't race he still ended up racing. There are still too many secrets.

    Honestly I was putting it off for a long time, I thought it was going to be a dramatic story but it turned out to have some very interesting characters. Conway a sweet guy with feelings on the surface, Stone a little more wild, reckless
