Product Description

Product Description

*Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Novel*
"A richly nuanced -- and smolderingly clever -- book about letting love shine in places where the past feels bigger than it needs to be. The cast of side characters range from quirky to mysterious, lending tremendous authenticity and depth to a romantic story that is so much more. A one-click must read!" Julia Kent, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"A heartbreaking tale of letting go and learning to love again. A jaw-dropping debut novel you have to read.” - Helena Newbury, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.

How do you start over when you gave everything to one life, one plan, and lost it all?

Althea refuses to allow herself to love again. Imprisoned in grief at twenty-four after her husband’s sudden death, she’s convinced her heart died along with him. She spends her days honoring his memory by clinging to the legal career he helped her to build and to the remaining pieces linking them together.

Griffen’s been running from his past. Despite success as an author and investigative journalist, he’s been traveling through life on autopilot. For a decade, he’s chosen perilous adventures and meaningless sex over the danger of any attachments. When he finally returns home to Pittsburgh, he’s slammed by the awakened memories and regret he’s spent years trying to escape.

A chance encounter brings them together. Their instant desire for each other – and the bond they discover between them – shocks them both. Despite her best efforts, Althea can’t resist Griffen’s charm or his intriguing proposition – if she agrees to a no-strings affair with him for the two weeks he’s in town, he swears he’ll walk away when their time is up. Assured she can test the waters of a new life while keeping her vow never to betray her husband’s memory by opening her heart to another, Althea throws herself into the escape Griffen provides her.

Their perfect plans go awry when the intensity of their connection overwhelms them. Will they risk it all on the chance of something great together…or will the power of their secrets and guilt tear them apart?

I was lucky enough to have won this book on facebook. I had read about it and wanted to read it, but my TBR is so huge. However, something about it just called to me and I had to drop everything and read it. This is a story of love, loss, pain, guilt, regret, forgiveness, angst, friendship and suspense. Chloe somehow gets all these emotions into the book with out being overwhelming or pushy. The writing is brilliant and the story is unique. Althea tragically loses her husband and she can't seem to let go of the loss and guilt she feels. She has amazing friends who are supportive of her but get her to see that it's time she moves on. She meets a handsome stranger and feels a connection with him that she hasn't had since her late husband. Griffen returns to Pittsburgh and sees Althea and knows that he has to have her. Their initial meeting is funny and very steamy. I love Griffen! He has a way with words that had me sighing through the entire book. Griffen and Tea have such amazing chemistry both in and out of bed. Their conversations are deep and meaning and fun and flirty. I love the nicknames they have for each other and the sex is HOT! I loved that this story was different. Not only the plot, but the characters, the feelings and even the sex scenes. I didn't feel like I was reading "another romance" story at all. The secondary characters were such a huge part of the story that I felt like I was there with them. Tea and her friends make me miss my girls! And Trey? Hello!
Can Griffen and Tea move past their regret and guilt and find happiness in each other's arms? Will the past come back and put a wedge between them? Do not miss this amazing story!

"Do I make you nervous? He asked.
"A little," she muttered in a voice she barely recognized.

When I was given the chance to read this book a couple of months ago, I grabbed it, ran away and devoured it!
"How do you start over when you gave everything to one life, one plan, and lost it all."
When I finished Three Rivers, I had to sit back and take it all in. This story of love, loss, happiness and rediscovery wrapped around my heart and didn't want to let go.
When introduced to Althea, she has just suffered the tragic loss of her husband but left with the precious gift of a child. Helping her hold it together are her two best friends, Jenna and Aubrey. They continue to help and support her and encourage Althea to move on with her life. In her attempt to move on, we are introduced to Griffen. A famous author and native of Pittsburgh, who has returned to help his mentor at the local University. One night of passion opens up a new path for Althea that leads her across a river of happiness, love and heartbreak.
I absolutely love how the author brought Althea and Griffen together. It wasn't just a boy meets girl book, it was so much more. While Althea put on a happy face around family and friends, inside she was still dealing with the pain and blame of what had happened to her husband. Griffen was trying to run away from his past and when they collided, Oh heck yes! They needed each other to help heal and find themselves again. But with all the happiness and healing, there is some pain and deceit. I found myself laughing quite a bit while reading the many one liners through the book from the secondary characters. Mainly Jenna and Aubrey who's books I cannot wait to read.
For a first time author, Chloe T. Barlow has done an outstanding job of telling the story of Griffen and Althea. She takes us on such a ride that I didn't want it to end.

Three Rivers was definitely a solid 4 stars for me! I love the fact that the story takes place in my hometown of Pittsburgh. The book starts off with a young Althea losing her husband. The love of her life. She quickly learns to step up and take care of responsibilities. Althea is basically living on auto pilot for years after her husbands death. Until she meets Griffen! 

Griffen is a handsome and very successful writer. He has a very troubled past that he can't seem to move on from. Griffen has allowed his past to interfere with ever wanting a normal relationship. And then in walks Althea.

Without giving away the story, Griffen and Althea have an amazing chemistry and sexual attraction. They soon find out they are connected from their past. Will this new discovery impact their new arrangement? Three Rivers has heart ache, lust, love, suspense and a very satisfying ending. I highly recommend picking up this book and enjoying all of the emotions it will bring you!

This book had me from the begining. Great love story, Great Hot Sex, Griffen makes an awesome book boyfriend, Athlea is strong, loving, caring person. Sure sometimes she needed an extra push but her sidekicks Jenna and Aubrey were there to give it to her. Their characters are great as well, can't wait to read their stories. I would highly recommend this book. Amazing debut book, thanks for sharing Chloe.
