Ana DaSilva is looking for a palate cleanser. A one-night stand. A reboot.
Instead, she gets fireworks, sparks, chemistry, and the perfect guy. No one wants to meet Mr. Right when he should just be Mr. Rebound, but this Mr. Right is just so right.
Until he goes from Mr. Right to Mr. Never, because when she learns she’s pregnant three days after that wonderful night with Dennis, she realizes her sleazy drug-dealing ex not only left her with the legal mess she knew about, he gave her a lifelong present.
One that means ignoring Dennis’s texts and phone calls, no matter how much she wants to answer.
Dennis Luview wants to escape his pain. Coming back to his hometown of Luview, Maine–the cheesy tourist trap where every day is Valentine’s Day–means facing a past he left behind twenty-four years ago. Yes, his family is loving, and sure, he has deep roots in the small-town community where people step up for each other.
But the naïve eighteen-year-old who left to serve his country is now a retired special ops vet with a heavy entourage of ghosts and PTSD. No woman deserves all the baggage he’s lugging around.
Including Ana, who clearly wants nothing to do with him, no matter how intense their one haunting encounter really was.
It's one thing to have ghosts and quite another to be ghosted.
Which is why, six months after that hot night, he’s stunned to run into her at a festival in his hometown, her ripe, pregnant belly swelling under her cotton dress.
A public confrontation turns into a very private reunion. As Dennis pursues Ana, she opens up, but is he crazy to want her–and what turns out to be another man’s baby–to settle down and find stability and love?
Or is he deluding himself that the happiness an instant family could offer would heal the scars of the terrible past?
If you’re looking for a secret(ish) baby, one-night stand, strangers-to-lovers romance set in a town where every day is Valentine’s Day, featuring a veteran with PTSD who volunteers at an animal-rescue sanctuary and a therapist who keeps picking the wrong men (until now), then settle in with a cup of coffee and a maple bacon doughnut and catch up on the Love You, Maine series that features the Luview family.
Strangers to lovers
… and a sugar glider named Magic
Dennis and Ana had an instant connection that completely jumped off the page. The intensity of their first night together made me think that nothing would stand in their way... but then there wouldn't be any JK crazy in the story and man was there a curve ball of epic proportions.
I'm loving Luview Maine. This town and the residents are so special. I love the over involvement in everyone's lives but also how much they care about each other.
I'm so excited this isn't the end of visits to this town! I can't wait to meet more Luview friends!
Love you Julia Kent!!
Love You Now, book 4 of the Love You, Maine series written by Julia Kent. Dennis and Ana have such a sweet love story with just a few complications. I wanted to stay longer in Luview and spend more time with my wonderful friends. As with any Julia Kent romance, there are gut busting LOL moments all throughout just to make your trip to Maine more fun. I totally loved it and now I’m going back to the beginning to start over so I can see them again and again!
Love Them Forever
It’s Dennis Luview’s story, at last! The mysterious, oldest Luview sibling comes home to stay, but not before he meets a very special woman named Ana. They have a very special and passionate night that has him wanting so much more. And she ghosts him, only to meet again in very unusual circumstances. This was a heated, humorous romance about two people who find that someone special at pivotal points in their lives. It really tugged at heartstrings, when it didn’t make one snort with laughter. Well done, Julia Kent, we’ll done.
