USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa charms readers in this romantic comedy that’s whimsical and fun.
Eros Brassard and I met at JFK years ago while trying to catch two different planes. We had an instant connection that was too powerful to deny. Love happened, and we hooked up.
After our crazy romp, we agreed we couldn’t be together. We live too far away to make it work. Yet ever since, destiny has brought us together. Our paths have crossed so many times it’s obvious fate has intervened in our lives.
But there’s always something else—or someone else—getting in the way. Until now.
I’m hired to plan the wedding of Eros’ best friend, Misty. He thought Misty was the one who got away… until I walked in.
Will circumstances push us apart again?
Or is it the perfect time… maybe… for us to finally admit the truth?
Love Like Her is a funny rom-com of fated lovers and cute crushes. This warm novel that’s cozy and flirty portrays a perfect ending of second—or third—or fourth—chances.
Good, but read the previous books first
So, first off, this book for me was closer to a 3.5 than a four, but since part of the rating is sort of my fault, I’m just going with it.
I didn’t realize that this was book three of a series that, upon reflection and checking out other reviews, probably should be read after the first two books. Some of the storyline in Love Like Her has elements of what has happened/is happening in books one and two. It looks like they run congruently, so to me, it’s not a true stand-alone.
I liked Eros and Liv’s first meeting and thought they were adorable from the first page. I enjoyed their relationship while being frustrated with each of them for different reasons. But by 70% in, I was about ready to walk away from the book. I felt Eros was completely out of character from the man he was before. I think only sheer stubbornness kept me going.
Ultimately, I was glad I continued, because I loved the ending. But it was a tough go for this reader. I would have liked a bit more guidance as far as the timeline of their relationship progressed, instead of guessing how many days/months/years have gone by between chapters.
But that’s my issue, it really has nothing to do with the writing or storyline, which was really good. So while there were issues for me, I’d still recommend Love Like Her. I think I would encourage you to start with the previous books,though.
I’m really disappointed after the first two. Not a plausible story line, no connection with the characters, and I’m 20% through the book. I feel like the author took her rough draft and published it. As I keep reading I get more and more confused and disappointed. The first one was the best so far, the second was alright, and I wish I had stopped there.
Read it on sitting
This was probably my favorite book of the three so far. It was a mix of funny, sad, sexy and love.
