Love means fading out so another shines brighter.
Right clothes. Right school. Right fiancé. As a Wyndemere, Arian’s expected to abide by the rules. The most important: be perfect. But Arian’s seemingly flawless life is far from it. An embarrassing expulsion from her father’s alma mater spirals an already unhealthy obsession out of control, exposing a dark truth.
Faced with having to attend a small private college after a stint in rehab, Arian’s ready to coast under the radar and repair some of the wreckage, but her father’s looming control is like a vise choking off her air supply.
When a run-in with Braxton’s beloved star quarterback, Ryder Nash, puts Arian squarely in the crosshairs of his devoted teammates, the last of her controlled, orderly world unhinges. As the pranks and paybacks escalate, Arian and Ryder’s rivalry takes a passionate turn. And once Arian glimpses beneath the all-star-athlete exterior Ryder projects, she realizes he’s far more than just a jock.
As their relationship intensifies, outside forces feel the threat. Outrunning their pasts doesn’t mean history won’t repeat itself, but Ryder can’t let that happen. He’s just one Championship game away from breaking the mold. Only one moment, one choice, might change everything.

Review: Living Heartwood #3: Fading Out
Fading Out by Trisha Wolfe is the third book in the Living Heartwood series. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone.
These books are not quick, easy, romantic reads. These books are cry your eyes out with ugly tears, worry your having a heart attack your chest is squeezing so tight, empty the box of tissues type of books. So far Mental health and loss have been dealt with along with addiction issues. This book tackles eating disorders. Each of Trisha's books in this series carries a strong message about real issues that real "New Adults" face without bashing you over the head with the issue itself.
Ari is expected to be perfect and living up to her parents expectations is taking it's toll on her heart, her health and her life. Ryder is the star quarterback and has his own dark issues to deal with. Both of them fight the things they feel but fate or inevitability takes over and when they finally connect it's a doozy. Another must read from the passionate mind of Trisha Wolfe.
