Falling for Bentley Series by Shawnte Borris Blog Tour






The Falling for
Bentley Series Collection
Shawnte Borris


*Just
when Bentley Knight thought life was only about football and women, a Hail Mary
pass comes at him, changing everything.

Forced
to grow up faster than he wants, Bentley struggles with the responsibility of
being a good example to his younger brother, on and off the football field, and
pleasing his frustrated, demanding father. Just when he reaches his limit of
complications, in walks a beautiful blond angel, endangering the delicate
balance he’s finally found in his new life.

When
mistakes of his past threaten to derail his future, will Bentley be man enough
to win the heart of the girl he once ridiculed in high school, who just happens
to be the woman of his dreams?

Heartbroken and
betrayed by Bentley’s abandonment, Haley has made a new life for herself in the
one place she’s felt grounded and at peace. When Bentley returns to town and
discovers the secret she’s kept from him, she vows to keep him at arms length
to protect herself – and her future.
*Bentley has returned
home to the farm and town that have owned his heart forever, and he’s
determined to win the heart of the only woman he’s ever loved – once and for
all. After he learns the secret she has kept from him, Haley’s cold shoulder
threatens to sideline his plans.
When Bentley begins to
tear down her walls, will Haley find the strength to forgive the past and trust
him again?
As Bentley fights for
the life he really wants, will he be able to convince Haley to give him a
second chance?
When life throws one
final pass, will Bentley fumble, or make the most important catch of his life?

*As I fell for him, I caught her…

If you are looking for a feel good book that will play with all of your emotions, this is the book for you.  I know that we all have that person from high school that we can't get out of our head from high school. Whether they are our first loves, or the person who made our lives a living hell.  Bentley is that person to Haley. 
Bentley tormented Haley while she was in high school so bad that she had to get therapy to  be able to live a normal life.  When Haley comes home to take care of the family farm while her grandparents are on vacation, she also has to deal with the Bentley of her past, or is she dealing with the Bentley of her future.
I love that Haley does not let her guard down.  She may have been a girl that didn't have much of a backbone in high school, but that girl is gone and in her place is a woman who knows what she wants and is not going to take any crap from anyone.   She never plays then "Oh the star football player likes me" role. Instead she makes him feel like she could care less, and makes him work- and work hard- for her heart.  In the end, I think that she finds that the man she thought he was is not the man that he is.
This book is an easy read that you will be able to have that happy ending at the end.  Not only are Haley and Bentley fun to read, but the other characters will leave you wanting for me. When you get to the second book, you don't know which way you want the story to go, but you know that you want Bentley and Haley to have their HEA, whatever that is.

Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch

Little Warriors is a national, charitable organization in Canada that is committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. The Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch by Ray LaBonte and Family is a treatment centre focused solely to help children who have been sexually abused, as well as their families. The Be Brave Ranch program offers these children a place to heal and increase their chances of growing into healthy adults, and supports both the child and their families in their own environment for a full year.

The Be Brave Ranch offers an evidence-based treatment program that combines multiple proven therapies for children ages 8-12. It starts with an initial 20-day period at the Be Brave Ranch, during which they form close relationships with the 7 other members of their peer-group (“cohort”). This is followed by long-term therapy and support for the child and their family lasting a full year. During this extended period, children come back to the Be Brave Ranch for 3 other 7-day periods for further therapy and to reconnect in person with their cohort.

During the one-year program there is more than 200 hours of diverse therapy for children and their families run by clinical professionals, and offering a unique program including:

·       Intensive trauma focused-cognitive behavioural therapy (TF-CBT)
·       Art therapy
·       Play therapy
·       Music therapy
·       Recreational activities
·       Peer group (cohort) support

Therapy is provided in an enriched “camp-like” environment in which children also have lots of fun! Being in cohorts helps each child recognize they are not alone, and gives them peers who have experienced similar traumas. The children form long-term relationships with deep bonds, and these also help the children heal.

Child abuse affects the whole family; thus, our program also incorporates family-centered therapy. Children come to the Be Brave Ranch with a parent or caregiver whenever possible. The Be Brave Ranch provides a safe environment for the child and their family to heal.
