★★★★★ Must Read!!
“This book is a captivating and mesmerizing read! I so enjoyed this book. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I got completely caught up in the on-again off-again love between Noah and Robin. It takes you on one hell of a roller coaster ride, only to bring you to a very unexpected ending.” — Angie Harmon

“At the end of the book, the author mentioned that the story is true, though how it will pan out in real life is yet unknown. This ultra-romantic love story spans decades in the lives of all the characters. It demonstrates that love can withstand the test of time, even go beyond it. If I have one critique, it’s that the breaks in time were not clearly defined. The book indeed played out like a screenplay, as the author himself mentioned, since it’s a dream to see this story on film. Other than that, all I can say to the real-life Noah is that yours is a love beyond all beyonds; and for that I give it to you.” — NenetteU

★★★★★ I CHANGED MY MIND…
“Several times while reading this book as to what kind of rating it should have. In the beginning, I really liked it and the characters, but then Noah seemed quite neurotic and Robin seemed like a very wishy-washy kind of woman. But as the story progressed and certain things about Robin’s childhood come to light, then her behavior starts to make sense as well as the influence of an unscrupulous doctor. Mr. Cole wrote a fantastic first novel that makes you believe in a forever kind of love and the possibility of there really being a soulmate out there for those who want one. Definitely worth reading!!!” — J. D. Hale

Being an avid Nicholas Sparks fan, I’m very particular about my romance novels but Sebastian Cole did not disappoint!! It took me too long to read this book. Between a million things I had to do, I always found a time to read just a little bit until I finished. Then I re-read the whole thing! :)” — iclimbedatreetoseetheworld

★★★★★ Romance, Remembrances and Revelations
“Sebastian Cole certainly has poured his heart and soul into this, his first title. We are introduced to hard-working but lonely, Noah Hartman, who has everything he could ever desire and then some–with the exception of a soulmate. He’s sure she’s out there somewhere and, in desperation, even resorts to online dating sites to find the girl of his dreams. After he suffers several disappointments, and has all but given up his quest, he accepts his brother’s invitation for a guy’s night out. Little did Noah know that this night would change his life forever, for up on the crowded dance floor was a flame-haired, spirited beauty named Robin. He knew at first glance that she was “The One” and as soon as she danced with him, she felt the connection as well.
She took his breath away and captured his heart and gave each other “Butterflies”. Robin shows how alive and wonderful life can be, much to the dismay of his parents who were hoping he would get his mind back on the business at Hartman Industries, forget this Robin foolishness and meet and settle down with a nice Jewish girl. However, this wasn’t to be, as Noah and Robin marry and settle in Noah’s house with Robin’s Daughter, Brittany, of whom Noah has become very fond. All seems dream-like and grand, until, without any rhyme, reason, or warning, Robin leaves him. Melancholy and heartsick, Noah tries to understand why she has left him. What has he done wrong? Many twists, turns, an unfortunate choice of action and ultimately a diagnosis keep them apart physically, but not within Noah’s heart. Will they be apart forever? Will Robin remember she loves him? What part does the Sand Dollar play in all of their drama? You’ll be agitated, in need of tissues, warmed by the presence and love of Josh, irritated, and ready to shake some sense into both Noah and Robin, as well as feel disgust at the cold, detached demeanor of Noah’s Parents. Author Cole has created characters that stir your mind and pluck your heartstrings, as you feel you have known them forever. Bravo to Mr. Cole on such an outstanding first work. I’m hoping we’ll hear a lot more in the near future. If someone doesn’t grab this tale to be made into a movie, they’re foolish–and, if you don’t add this to your TBR list, well…all I can say is you’ve really missed the boat!” — Nancy Narna

“I received a complimentary copy of Sand Dollar for read and review, but this did not affect my review.
I first wish to thank Mr. Cole for the opportunity to read this book. I feel privileged to even have the honor of sharing my thoughts on such a fantastic and masterful creation. I will not do what I normally do which is re-summarize the entire story, no…this is a story that you must read yourself. Then and only then will you have the incredible journey that Mr. Cole takes the reader on. I really do not have enough words in my arsenal to say how lovely, heart wrenchingly beautiful this book was, I am a sucker for romance, and moreso for the undying love element.
The pain, frustration and acceptance that the main character Noah experienced by loving Robin is I do not know…. soul wrenching….
But his perseverance was incredible, and how lucky and sad, I see the tragic figure Robin as, to have and not recognize, what many do not have, someone to love them wholeheartedly, undeserved and unconditionally…
Mr. Cole’s work is exceptional, well written and beautiful, to compare him to Nicholas Sparks is accurate, but I feel that Mr. Cole is and will continue to blaze his own path and leave his own mark as a writer.” — Michelle C. Jordan
