REVIEW – IF WE LEAP (What If Duet, #0.5) by Nina Lane


Will he take the leap with me?

Cole Danforth was a troubled kid with a bad reputation. When I was nine years old, he rescued me from bullies trying to steal my Halloween candy. Thus began my decade-long crush on him.

Now, the summer after my freshman year in college, I discover the boy has turned into a gorgeous man who makes me melt. Every part of me wants him — my heart, my mind, my body. But Cole, struggling with the burden of his past, refuses to accept how good we are together.

I believe in us hard enough to take the chance. But will Cole take the leap of faith with me?

This novella prequel takes place ten years before If We Fall, Book One in Nina Lane’s What If duet.

Cole Danforth was my first crush, my first lover, my only love. In my girlhood days when I’d dreamed about a lifelong love, he’d been the one who always came to mind. The one I wished for. And in my nineteenth year, I lived with a translucent, shimmering wish come true. Then the wish ruptured, exploding from the inside, firing shards of metal straight through my heart. From the burnt ashes, a new wish formed, misshapen and ugly. I wish I’d never known Cole Danforth.




A steamy and entertaining prequel to the “What If” series, IF WE LEAP takes us to the beginning of an epic love story between Cole Danforth and Josie Mays. They were destined from early childhood to one day become soul mates. Two pieces of a puzzle that fit perfectly together. But something went terribly wrong that ripped the couple apart.

IF WE LEAP is a pretty quick read and definitely recommended before diving into book one.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 4.5
Angst: 3
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
