There's two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.
This is ours.
The cardinal rule of friendship is you don't mess with your friend's sister. That goes double when she's his little sister.
It was just supposed to be fun.
She wasn't supposed to end up being the love of my life.
And I definitely wasn't supposed to break her heart.
Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should've been a warning that she's a hopeless romantic. That should've clued me in that she believes love conquers all.
But there are some things that love can't fix. I'm one of them.
She thinks love is the answer.
But love is the reason I let her go.
Review: Just Love
Just Love by Prescott Lane is a standalone contemporary romance. It literally is a before and after story. The couple falling in love up until an event happens to change their lives, and then the couple finding their way back to each other in spite of the event and all the fallout it entailed. It was emotional. I'm not talking a little bit of angst and drama but BOOM happily ever after. I'm talking it made me uncomfortable the level of pain these characters were subjected to. It was sooo well written and handled with such class. I kept wanting that magic fiction-switch to be pulled so that everyone was suddenly 100% again, no issues. But that would have not done justice to Rhett and Ainsley at all. Instead, the author stayed the course and gave these two the best ending. I usually steer away from such emotional entanglements in my book world and wasn't expecting it but I enjoyed it. Hope you do too.
First time reading this author.I chose it for the ratings. Pretty sure it appeals to the 20s and 30s age group more than it did to me. The sex language in almost every romance I read just makes me enjoy it less. But I am sure I am an exception. It was a decent story, just not a five star one for me.
I read A LOT. I have been reading some form of romance since I was a teenager many years ago. I am rarely surprised or caught off guard by a book, but every now and again, one comes along, and when you finish it, there’s this overwhelming feeling of having just finished something that was so powerful and amazing that all you can say is WOW. This is one of those books. This is not a light-hearted HEA book. This one pulls out all the emotions. This is kind of like that go to movie when you need to purge all your emotions: Terms of Endearment or Steel Magnolias, only I find the written word much more powerful. An author who can do this has so much talent. Thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us.
