 Derailed (Clayton Falls #1)
Published: September 2012
When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home.

Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind.

Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamed possible.

Veer (Clayton Falls #2)
Published: November 2012  
Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.

Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a d
istrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.

When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.

4 stars out of 5
     Derailed is a book about healing. Molly has lost the three most important men in he laugh. Her father died on the train tracks, and she's unsure if it was suicide or an accident. She broke it off with her boyfriend of three years Ben after he failed to come when she heard about her father. And her fiance Adam jumped off a bridge. Now Molly can't find any meaning in law school, in life. So she decides to move back home, back to where Ben still lives, though she's sure he hates her.

     Ben has waited for Molly to come back to him. He still loves her, even after their awful break-up. I loved Ben. He was sweet and caring. I loved how he took care of her when she was sick and was completely patient with her. He never pressured her into anything and knew her perfectly, even after all these years.

     Molly thinks she's poison to all the men in her life. After all, she's the reason Adam and her father killed themselves. Right? When Ben learns that Molly blames herself, he helps her understand that it's not her fault, she didn't make that decision for either of them. And besides, her father might not have killed himself; there was no note and no investigation.

     Derailed was full of funny moments and painful memories. You'll not only love the main characters, but the supporting characters as well. Jake, Ben's brother, loves to fight with Molly and purposely provokes her. Kelley is Molly's best friend and is getting married to Tom, a cop, on the same day Molly was supposed to. Tom sets Molly up with his partner Gavin, thinking they'll hit it off.

     Alyssa's writing is beautiful and eloquent and I can't wait to read more from her. I will definitely be reading Becca and Gavin's story in Veer.
