Praise for The Dodge Cove Trilogy: No Holding Back: “Charming to the max.” —Lola, Hit or Miss Books No Love Allowed: “It’s like a modern fairy tale.” —Camelle, reader on SwoonReads.com "Evangelista takes a familiar story of young love and makes it fresh." —VOYA "Given the growing awareness towards understanding the stigmas, issues and concerns surrounding mental illness, I find it refreshing that this book doesn’t preach about what to do or how to be—it just tells a story of two people who fall in love and who just also happen to struggle with issues that deserve a place to be talked about." —Whatsageek.com “The romance was incredible. There was also a great set of secondary characters. Nathan was my favorite. And I'm so thrilled that he's going to get his own story too. I can't wait for it. The perfect YA contemporary romance for me. It had humor, romance, awesome characters and great writing. Pretty much everything I want in a book.” —Stephanie, Bookfever
