★★★★★ Sand Dollar

“The Sand Dollar was the 1st book in many years that I finished from start to finish. It kept me intrigued until the very last page!! The book was very well written and so heartfelt. I experienced a range of emotions from crying to laughing. My only disappointment is that I finished the book and can longer be intertwined within Robin and Noah’s love story 🙂 I am looking forward to Sebastian’s next masterpiece! I definitely recommend this book to all the romantics out there!!!”

A Very Touching Review of Sand Dollar, Remembering Her Father on Veterans Day

Posted on November 13, 2012

★★★★★  Amazing

“I think I have a new favorite book. I absolutely loved this book. I just finished it today and thought that it was amazing. I was at my Mom’s house reading the final chapters and crying, then I handed it to her and said, “You’ve got to read this!” She said she wasn’t sure as she had seen me crying. I told her that it is indeed a beautiful love story and it did have a fantastic ending. I don’t even usually like romance novels but I loved this one. My favorite part was when the protagonist, Noah, said to his brother, and I’m paraphrasing here, even though my life may be over, my love will never end. It is especially reassuring to read this today on Veteran’s Day as I’m missing my eternal hero, my dad. I believe that even though I didn’t get to see him and thank him for his service to our country this morning, that he still knows what is in my heart and mind and that he does indeed still continue to love me as much as I still love him. Thank you, Mr. Cole, for an incredible novel that moved me to tears in a very personal way. I will most definitely read this novel again, as I often do with my favorites, and recommend it to my friends. Congratulations on a superb book!” — Donna

★★★★★  A Must Read For Every Romantic!

“This is the story of Noah Hartman’s life and it begins with him narrating the story with him and how he found the love of his life Robin. He finally found Robin after searching and searching for Mrs. Right! They begin dating and of course his well to do parents do not agree as she is not what “they” want, she isnt well to do, she isnt jewish, she isnt right for their son etc. They are some of the worst parents esp. the mom they control every aspect of Noah’s life and u really want to just slap them. Even though they dont agree Noah dates Robin and is going to marry her. Without giving too much away the marriage doesnt happen and Noah is torn up more than u can ever imagine. Years and years go by and Noah finds another woman Sarah and knows she will never replace Robin but things happen and they decide to wed but guess who shows up on the wedding day? Oh well that is it you will have to read the book! It’s a great book and you wont be sorry you bought it. I won this book and Mr. Cole was so gracious he autographed it and wrote a note in it! I am going to give back by buying another copy for a Christmas gift! It was one of the greatest love stories ever told! I hope to see it in the movies bc i will definitely go see it! I give it 5 Sand dollars, i mean stars! Can’t wait for Mr. Cole’s 2nd novel! Way to go! I will recommend this to all my friends and family!” — Riau74

Pixie’s Review of Sand Dollar From The Ravaged Jersey Shore

Posted on November 11, 2012


A LightHouse In MY Storm

“Let me start by telling you I live in one of the Devastated Areas of The Jersey Shore. we were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy and with no power and destruction all around me imagine my sheer delight to look in my mailbox and see this book! I open it and read the First quote ” If Someday you should ever think of me and miss me, know in your heart that I’d want you to find me again, no matter how distant in time and space….. FIND ME”….. I cried…. People You NEED to FIND this book. Sebastian Cole writes a love story like no other, I felt every emotion with our ‘Soul Mates’ Noah and Robin, probably ten times more because of whats happening in our lives… I will not spoil the book for you just know these two very precious souls go through more unjust messing in their lives and grief by over controlling parents, unscrupulous professionals, evil people and just life itself, to be brought together and torn apart through a series of problems really caused by neither Noah or Robin, throw in Josh (I LOVE the twist with Josh) and you will have a love story that goes beyond time and space. Very well done Mr. Cole THANK YOU for giving me a light house in my storm… I give this book 5 sand dollars…” — Pixie

Don’t take love for granted

“Just finished reading Sand Dollar, the book is amazing! It touched my heart like no other book has ever done. The undying love of Noah is a love that everyone searches for and few ever find. The author has written a wonderful love story, with the message ‘Don’t ever take love for granted’! Will be waiting for more stories from this author.” — Audrey Mageau

Modern Romance

“Excellent modern romance! It definitely was similar to Nicholas Sparks or Richard Paul Evans. Not only was it a great love story, but it was also suspenseful. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next and how it was going to end. Couldn’t put it down and therefore read it very fast! Can’t wait for another book from Sebastian Cole!” — Amy Z Drew

A beautiful story

*I received this book for free through GoodReads First Reads!*

“This is the story of Noah Hartman and his quest to find his soulmate. The story is told by 80 year old Noah as a reflection of his life, starting back in his late 30s. Noah h it all–a gorgeous home, a job with a huge salary, good looks and a fit body, and a fabulous car. He has already had failed marriage, but is ready to find true love now. His parents are very controlling, and have very specific ideas about what kind of girl is right for their son. Noah is less concerned about their criteria, and has created an elaborate system for ranking the women he is interested in from the online dating website he joined. After months of unsuccessful dating, Noah decides to go back to the old-fashioned way of meeting women–he heads to dance clubs.

It is at a dance club that Noah finally has the moment he has been waiting for–time slows down as he sets eyes on a beautiful red-head dancing. He makes his way over to her, and when their eyes met their souls connect. She is the one he has been looking for, and she feels the same connection with him. This woman, Robin, hides some dark secrets that will affect their future in ways Noah can never prepare himself for.

This was a very beautiful, romantic, heartbreaking and inspiring story. It was a unique perspective and very engrossing to read. Noah’s story shows that fighting for love, and protecting love when you find it, should be more important than anything else.” — Melanie Layton

A Surprise!

“My friend passed this book on to me to read, and I shoved it aside, as it’s not typically my genre. BUT it was a really great read. I kept coming back to it because I just had to see what happened to poor Noah next. Great character development, wonderfully frustrating, page-turning events and an ending I definitely didn’t expect. Excellent read!” — Stacey

Not a Fan of Romance Novels, but…

“I am not a fan of Romance Novels but was drawn into the book by the author-of all things. Meeting Mr. Sebastian Cole at a book signing in New England, I was taken by the obvious love he has for his book when he speaks about the whole creative experience. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down. I just had to know what was going to happen to the really nice guy who falls head over heel in love with a troubled young woman (who doesn’t really understand the nature of her troubles.) All of the circumstances that served to keep the couple apart and the reaction of the individuals kept me wanting to know what would happen next. The ending was magnificent! I could not put the book down…I can only envision Mr.Cole’s book turning into a movie. And hope that he continues to write more !” — Angie

Spectacular Read

“This was probably the greatest love story I have ever read. Although at times I wanted to shake both Robin and Noah it truly was an amazing read with a spectacular ending. Want to share this book with friends but not willing to part with my copy. This will be a book I keep and read over and over again. (Oh yeah….make sure you have a box of kleeenex nearby!!)”Adrienne

Undying Love for Sand Dollar

“Congratulations Mr. Cole! Your debut novel, SAND DOLLAR: A STORY OF UNDYING LOVE, is a winner. And I’m a winner too! I won this book as a Firstreads Giveaway. SAND DOLLAR is a wonderful tale of love and so much more. Noah Hartman~~what a perfect name for a man who follows his heart~~spent his life searching for his soul mate. He found her in Robin. If only Robin could find her way to back to him. As eighty-year old Noah from his hospital bed tells his story to Josh, a very special orderly, we learn of a love that will never die. Well done. I enjoyed reading this story written from a man’s perspective. Genuine. Keep writing Mr. Cole and I’ll keep reading! I gave this book 4 stars but I really wanted to give it 4.5 stars!” — Maryellen

Posted on October 1, 2012



“Mr. Cole did an amazing job writing this book. I strongly recommend that any one who loves romance books you need to read this one, just have your tissues ready your going to need them. What Noah went through was gut wrenching a true sole mate is hard to find as Noah will tell you, but if you wait long enough as Noah did for Robin it will work out in the end. And to share his love story with a very special some one like Josh is even better. I can’t wait until his next book come out. I really Love this book.” — Sherrie Pogorzelski

A Fantastic Love Story

“I won this book in a contest off of Im not a huge romance reader so I was skeptical about this book at first. I adored it!! I loved Noah’s character and how he came from money but was very down to earth. I love that he was true to his heart through the entire story. I know Robin’s character had to be the way she was but she made me mad! Noah was a great guy. In the end though she realized what she had. I would recommend this book for sure! A must read!”

Lots of twists and turns

“This is the first book I have received as a Goodreads giveaway. I must admit that I thought maybe the giveaway books were going to be lame and not worth reading, but this one certainly disproved that. I enjoyed reading about Noah and could certainly imagine myself in his place if my true love just up and walked out of my life. I liked the twists and turns this book has, and can’t wait to see what Sebastian Cole is going to be writing next.” –S. Sprinkle

Kiersten’s Review of Sand Dollar at Amazon

Reminds me of Nicholas Sparks

“I really, really liked this book. It was definitely my kind of book. Very Nicholas Sparks. I thought that maybe the plot sounded a little bit cheesy, but you know what, that’s what I love. I really liked the writing style of this book, and I just had a hard time putting it down whenever I picked it up.

Now, things really frustrated me in this book. The main things that just really irked me were Robin, and Noah’s parents. I JUST WANTED TO CHOKE THEM. Usually, by the end of a book, characters I really hate I end up liking, depending on what the author does with the character. By the end, I did like Robin, but I never quite liked Noah’s parents. But even though I was not Robin’s biggest fan throughout the book, I found myself wanting Robin and Noah to be together.

With that being said, my favorite character of course was Noah. How could it not be?

Just to sum things up, I enjoyed this book very much, and would recommend it to any Nicholas Sparks’ fans out there, like myself. If you are debating whether to read this book, DO IT.” — Kiersten
