Brayden: I’m a goddamn prodigy. It’s true. Ask anyone. I threw my first curveball the day I was born. The whole damn town is waiting on me. To live up to my father’s famous name. To reach for the stars. All I want to reach for is her. But Ashley is the sweet addiction I can’t afford. She’s my best friend’s sister. Hell, she’s practically my little sister.

    This book blew me away! I am seriously at a loss for words right now. Let's see if I can try to articulate how I'm feeling. This is one of the best contemporary debuts that I have had the pleasure to read. This book absolutely enchanted me. I couldn't pull myself away from it.

    First of all, the thing that I noticed first when I started this novel was an impressive writing style. Especially for a first-time author. The prose flows effortlessly. It is almost like watching a movie unfold inside your head as opposed to stumbling over words trying to piece a story together. It was so fluid and natural. I devoured this book. The writing has such a smooth quality that I admire in a writer.

    The characters in this story are genuinely spectacular. I immediately loved them from the first page. Ashley and Brayden, the two main characters and love interests in the book, are written beautifully. They have incredible depth. When you are reading this story you feel like you know these characters. It's very intimate the way the author presents these characters to the reader. They feel absolutely tangible. They also have immense character growth throughout the story. The dialogue that the characters have in the book is also very well written. I am so eager to see how their growth plays out in the next book.

    The romance is a slow-burn that will make your heart ache. Your chest will actually feel physically hurt when you read about these characters and their love story. I really loved how drawn out and deep their love story was. Ashley and Brayden meet when they are around 12 years old when her family moves to town. They form a fast friendship over the love of books and Brayden becomes a staple in her family's life. Her brother and Brayden become best friends. The story starts off in those younger years and it progresses into high school. Seeing their relationship blossom from age twelve and then beyond really cemented how close these two were. Their romance started from a very special friendship so their story is so very emotional. Getting all of that backstory as part of the book and not just being told was really monumental in capturing the raw emotion that their romance stems from. I love that the book has dual POV of both Ashley and Brayden.

    I don't want to give much away about the plot of the story, but I will say that it will surprise you. There is a cliffhanger, but I have a feeling that the next book will be worth it. It's definitely a story that I would recommend.

    Overall, this book was a contemporary romance masterpiece. It captured a little piece of my heart. I expect such wonderful things from this author in the future and she has definitely garnered a lifetime fan out of me. I am so excited to read the second and final book in this series! I am chomping at the bits to devour it.

    From the first day they met, Brayden and Ashley developed a bond, one that no one else around them ever fully understood, and through the years that bond only deepened... turning into something that bordered a little more closer to love than friendship. But Brayden knows admitting that he is falling for his best friend's little sister would cause a ripple effect that would ruin his future and hers... he is no good for her right now.

    From the first day they met, Brayden and Ashley developed a bond, one that no one else around them ever fully understood, and through the years that bond only deepened... turning into something that bordered a little more closer to love than friendship. But Brayden knows admitting that he is falling for his best friend's little sister would cause a ripple effect that would ruin his future and hers... he is no good for her right now.

    He cycles through women constantly, never keeping one around for more than a night, and likes to party a little too much. He knows adding Ashley to that mix would only cause her heartache, and cause him to lose sight of his goals, and damage the future he has planned for them.

    But Ashley isn't a patient girl... she wants him in whatever way she can have him, and she is not taking his no's for an answer any longer! Suddenly keeping his hands off the girl of his dreams becomes a whole lot harder than he anticipated!

    Interference is a heart-wrecking little page-turner that had me mesmerized from beginning to end... once I met these two I just couldn't pry my eyes from their story. Love is complicated enough as it is, but you add in the fact the girl you want happens to be your best friends little sister, and that amps things up in the complicated column a whole lot more. Watching Brayden and Ashley fight their feelings for one another was torturous at times, the angst was high, and so was the sexual tension... these two had serious undeniable chemistry. But as with all forbidden relationships there are always complications... and these two stumbled into a mess I am not sure they will ever recover from. I am dying to see what happens for these two, cliffhangers are a killer sometimes! But I have a feeling this one will be well worth the wait! Highly recommend you get your hands on this beautifully crafted tale, it promises to put a squeeze on your heart that will be felt long after you swipe the last page.

    I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

    I am at a complete loss of words. The only thing I have said for the past 10 minutes is, " Holy, ****, holy ****, holy ****!!" I can not even right now, I want to run my head into a wall, my brain is going hey wire. I also need to add, this is the first book I have read from this author, and her writing is absolutely phenomenal, but I have never endured an ending quite as shocking as this one. I am not one to be shocked, and this author has shocked the hell out of me, and now I am clawing out of my skin because I need answers, and questions that need answered.

    There is only one other author that I know of, that gets down to the nitty gritty, in such a depth that you can barely crawl out of, but Harlow Cole's Interference is a freaking game changer. She has surpassed every expectation and more that I have ever had from an author. Ashley and Brayden's story is so unique with great dialogue and even better analogies. It will wreck you in the best sense of word. I am sorry this review is a mess, but I am so not okay from this story. I am wrecked and craving the rest like never before. I literally can not say anything else, or I am going to break. Seriously break.

    This book was a home run for me! I love a good coming of age story!

    It’s so easy to forget the struggles of growing up in a small town where everyone knows your business. Ashley understands this all too well and when she walks into that library and meets the young boy who shares his sandwich with her she knew she had found a special love and friend for life. (I think I fell for him in that moment too!)

    Ash and Brayden go through many things as friends, things from the past and losing loved ones.

    Ash and Brayden go through many things as friends, things from the past and losing loved ones. Yet, the question for Brayden, who is on the verge of being drafted, what will you do for what you want and how will you cope when life starts to fall apart?

    Harlow did such a great job of sucking me into this world she created with these amazing characters and this beautifully breathtaking story that I can’t stop thinking about it! Best book hangover I’ve had all summer!

    Debut novel by Harlow Cole. I read this one in about 24 hours (squeezing in every possible moment to read!) and it was freaking amazing. Like, this book and the story blew my mind.

    This is the story of an epic love between Brayden and Ashley. The book starts off in the present, with Ashley working at a restaurant/bar. One day, Brayden Ross comes in - Brayden, a famous MLB pitcher, approaches her and tries to talk to her. But there is bitterness and loss between them.

    What happens next, is the retelling of their relationship and how things come to be where they are at present. Ashley and Brayden meet around age 12, when Ashley's family moves to St. Michaels. There is a special connection between them instantly, and when Brayden meets Ashley's older brother, Nathan, the three become an insta-family. Over the years, Ashley harbors her deep feelings for Brayden, while simultaneously watching him start to get noticed for his baseball skills. As they all get older, Brayden realizes his "little sister" is not so little anymore.

    What follows is a heartbreaking tale that I literally have no other words for. I wanted so much for Ashley and Brayden to be together, but there was so much standing in their way. Brayden's family life is baggage to the max. He has so much pressure on him, plus family issues. The end of their story in book 1 is catastrophic. What can happen next? I will be eagerly waiting for August 1 when the second book of this duet comes out!

    Harlow Cole's writing is masterful. She was able to craft a tale that was so complex and detailed. I felt like I was in the book witnessing these things take place. She truly has a gift - the way this story is spun is magical and really sets it up for the ending to have a deep impact on the reader.

    OHHH man. Pick this one up if you love ANGST, coming of age stories, and amazing peripheral characters, and impossible love stories.

    Interference was positively exquisite. Harlow Cole, in a breathtaking debut, captured every emotion beautifully and it was just magical in every way. I know it’s not possible for me to love this story any more than I already do. This is a story of first love, the ups and the downs and everything in between and, while there is heartache, you are holding onto hope that it will all work out. The angst of this book builds and builds. I understand why this book is part of a duet. The story can not be contained in one book. This is a book that sticks with you long after you read and I cannot recommend this unforgettable story enough.

    😥 An emotional journey

    "STAY."

    "Forgive."

    "Life in the middle place was supposed to hurt. We’re meant to suffer through them—those years that straddle the uncomplicated life of a child and the complex web of adulthood. They’re pre-programmed to blow chunks. Full helpings of angst and raging hormones, leave very few unscathed." ~ Ash

    This sums up the first half of the St. Michaels Duet. Interference takes place right at the cusp of our casts adulthood. Those years when all our dreams still seemed possible. The ones where we usually made the greatest memories as well as some of our greatest mistakes.

    I needed some time to recover and gather my thoughts after reading this. The story brought out an assortment of emotions for me leaving me a bit broken and definitely with a book hangover.

    We start in the now and are cast back to the beginning. Interference takes us back through the events that occurred that made the 'now' possible. The story itself was very easy to follow. The cast, for the most part, was easy to connect with and each member was well written. There were times I felt we spent more time in a scene than was necessary but in the end, I am glad for the quieter moments. They tied everything together even if I did not see it at the time.

    "Folks deserved to ride into hell on their own power."

    Brayden, at times, made the idea of forgiveness extremely hard.

    He was at the crossroads ~ the raging hormones, the pressure of living up to others expectations ~ That place where you want to be an adult but aren't quite sure how.

    I did have trouble with his character at times, he could be so extreme. After seeing his world I understood many of his reactions. Didn't approve of them but I got it.

    He was loved, truly loved, yet he still wanted that one thing he just could never seem to acquire ~ parental approval. Negative or positive it did not seem to matter. Anything that for a moment made him feel wanted, that he wasn't a castoff.

    IMO his instant "brotherly" connection to Soot was a bit of transference.

    They did make the best of besties.

    "A tiny little monster with a real hard head."

    Ashley was a sweetie. I enjoyed her tomboy persona. She wasn't afraid to be who she was. Her presence a soothing balm for Brayden's inner monster.

    Joey ~ Ashley's bestie. The town gossip queen and trouble walking. I loved her.

    Nathan, Ashley's brother. was a quiet presence. He was in most of the story buy IMO his actions didn't really stand out until maybe the last few chapters. There was a reason for that.

    There are quite a few other cast members whose presence make a very strong impact on the story line. Some I wanted to toss into the lake so they had some time to cool their heels others I wanted to wrap in bubble wrap and protect from what I knew was coming.

    Overall a very intense read that kept me entertained and emotionally engaged

    I was curious to discover this novel and I must admit that the sports aspect immediately attracted me. But I I was surprised, because I didn’t expect to have something “YA” and I thought the characters would be adults. It’s not really a problem, but it made me feel weird because in the first chapter, they’re adult and everything else goes back to the past.

    After this surprise, I must say that I had a good time. Ashley has always known Brayden, and she knew him

    I was curious to discover this novel and I must admit that the sports aspect immediately attracted me. But I I was surprised, because I didn’t expect to have something “YA” and I thought the characters would be adults. It’s not really a problem, but it made me feel weird because in the first chapter, they’re adult and everything else goes back to the past.

    After this surprise, I must say that I had a good time. Ashley has always known Brayden, and she knew him even before he became very close friends with her brother Nathan. He always protected her and she always saw in him something more. Yet, he doesn’t look at her like that, even older and it’s quite difficult for her. Brayden doesn’t have an easy life and Ashley is the most important person in his life. And as he grows up, he realizes that he has very strong feelings for her. But he doesn’t want to face them, even if it means hurting her at the same time.

    It was a touching novel, but also very sad. Ashley and Brayden love each other but they are constantly tearing each other apart. I was curious to see them evolve and especially to discover what would become of them. The author allows us to follow them both one after the other and see what they really think about what is happening. When I started the novel, I thought it was a standalone, but I saw that it was finally a duology… Arghhhhhh I want the sequel now! I want to know and discover what happened in everyone’s lives and especially how things will change now!

    is the first book I’ve read by Harlow Cole and I really liked the story. I loved that we started with a chapter from the present and then read about their past. I really wanted to know what happened to Brayden and Ashely for them to act so weird in the first chapter.

    Brayden and Ashley are so different, in my opinion. Brayden is reckless and does whatever he wants. And that hurts Ashley. Ashley constantly tries to see the good in Braydon, but they fight a lot because of his behaviour. Even though a lot happened, I think that they were a good couple.

    A lot happened in

    which made the book really interesting. I wanted to know how the book was going to end because I wanted to know whether or not there was going to be a future for Brayden and Ashley. I never thought the book was going to end the way it did, but it makes me want to read the sequel even more!
