Dennis Hayes knows all too well that his life is no place for a relationship. He’s at Chastity Falls Academy to play football and do his job. Not meet girls or have fun. But some rules are meant to broken, and the second his lips touch hers, Dennis knows he’s going to break his most sacred one: never let your heart rule.
Cassie Malson watched her friend’s life fall apart at the hands of The Fallen—Chastity Falls Academy’s football team. She never expected to end up in the same position. The lies. The sneaking around. Telling herself it’ll all work out in the end. Because deep down, Cassie knows if she isn’t careful, he’ll bury himself so far in her heart she might never recover.
They’re from different worlds.
They want different things.
It can never work.
Affliction is a spin-off novella from the Chastity Falls world. It can be read as a standalone but will best be enjoyed read after Tribulation and Truths.
Great addition to the series….
Well ok, I have made it no secret that I love the Chastity Falls series; with it’s wonderfully constructed world and the damaged and broken souls that inhabit and interact within it…this novella focuses on two of the supporting cast from the main series, Cassie and Dennis, as they encounter the kind of obstacles faced by those who become embroiled with the Fallen of Chastity Falls…by choice or otherwise..
When I become addicted to a series I always find it a wrench to let go when the final chapter closes; and in some ways this book feels to me as if the author has a similar struggle with goodbyes..but that does not detract from the fact it is well written, filled with drama and a remarkable amount of plot and character development..considering it is not a full length novel..
This was a worthy addition to the Chastity Falls catalogue.. it can be read as a standalone but if I was new to the series..I would not start here because it can only truly be appreciated if the reader fully understands the nuances and undercurrents that the original series provides….This novella was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads.
