Release Day Review: The Coldest Winter by Brittainy Cherry

I didn’t know he was forbidden until after our one night stand…

I met Milo Corti during his self-destructive era, and he met me during mine. That night when we crossed paths at a college party, we only had one goal in mind: to feel good during our personal hell storms. ⁣

After we parted ways, I’d planned to never see him again. That was until I showed up to my first day as a student-teacher and I found him sitting right there in front of me.⁣

Now I was forced to cross paths with the person who was meant to be nothing more than a fading memory.⁣

The more time we spent together, the more drawn I felt toward him. When his world took a shift for the worst, I couldn’t help myself but to lean in closer. .

My whole life I’d always done the right thing. For the first time ever, I wanted to do something very wrong.⁣ I wanted to fall in love with the one person who was off-limits.

The problem with falling for something forbidden? Once you began to descend, you were destined to crash.

The Coldest Winter is a heart-wrenching new adult novel that explores the forbidden romance between Starlet and Milo. The story begins with a chance encounter at a frat party, where the two indulge in a one-night stand.

Despite their age difference and the societal taboo of their relationship, they are drawn to each other and help each other heal from their respective traumas.

“She was the warm summer nights to my cold winter days. She was my person.”

As someone who is not typically drawn to new adult romance, I found myself thoroughly enjoying this book. Cherry's writing is poignant and evocative, eliciting genuine emotions from the reader. The story is touching and at times heart-wrenching, with several scenes that left me teary-eyed.

“I liked how he reminded me of a roller coaster—terrifying yet thrilling and worth the price of admission.”

Overall, The Coldest Winter is a beautifully written and emotionally charged novel that will leave readers rooting for Starlet and Milo's love story to prevail. It's a testament to Brittainy Cherry's talent as a writer and is highly recommended for fans of the genre.
