As a little girl, I saw my father destroy the family he claimed to love. I watched my mother waste her life dreaming of a man who left her without a second glance.

As a woman, I don’t dream, I work. I don’t fall in love, I focus. I would never let anything as frivolous as love distract me.

Until I meet Simon. A gorgeous, brilliant young architect with dark eyes, a sweet smile, and a dirty, dirty mouth. He sets me on fire, and suddenly all I can do is dream…of his hands, his lips, his body. Of a heart good enough and a love strong enough to make me believe in happily ever after.

But Simon has secrets that are even deeper than mine. Will our pasts destroy everything we’ve worked for? Or will we find the courage to rise to the challenge and fight for the love we share?


It’s hard to believe that this is Dylan Allen’s debut novel because it couldn’t possibly be written by someone so new in the game, but it was and I am super ecstatic about having a front row sear at what I anticipate will be a very promising writing career. There is so much to love about this phenomenal story and there is so much that I want to say about it, but yet I shouldn’t because it would give away some very crucial elements in the storyline.

Rise by Dylan Allen is one that you will want to open your heart up to experience first hand because this story will capture you whole body and soul, leaving you emotional and craving more. Since I clearly knew nothing about this author prior, I didn’t have any expectations going in, but if I had any they would have been completely blown out of the water. There wasn’t a single dull moment during this entire story. Addie and Simon’s connection tugged on my heartstrings and refused to let up even after I finished their story!

I have got to say that 2017 is certainly the year for extraordinary reads and we’re only in the second month. I strongly recommend this book and I cannot wait to see what the author comes up with next! A girl can never have too many books or new favorite authors! Thank you Dylan Allen for writing this sensational story!
