Love Love Blog Stop by Beth Michele




Gabrielle Willis is smart. She's funny. And oh yes, she's a bit klutzy. 

When Gabrielle left sunny California bound for the energy of Manhattan, she was willingly leaving the life she had known for the new life she would create. But was she really leaving something behind or was she running away?

On the outside, Gabrielle Willis has it all under control. A new life in Manhattan, a great roommate, and a good job. But she is haunted. Haunted by a memory she's tried to forget and by a family who's abandoned her. But what happens when what's on the outside is only an illusion and in perfect contradiction to what's buried deep within?

Enter Dane Rhodes. He's gorgeous, smart, and sexy as hell. Just what Gabby wants, or so she thinks. But when she meets Brad Dixon, the sweet guy with the crooked smile, he begins to make her see that the very thing she is trying to run from is the very thing that just may push her to see the

Excerpt:

We were hanging out on the makeshift dance floor.  Clark’s hands were roaming, our hips were swaying, and we were all dancing our free little hearts out.  The fuzzy feeling in my head caused me to react as Clark pressed his firm body against mine.  I wrapped my arms around his neck and plunged my tongue into his mouth, relishing the familiar taste of him.  When I pulled back, I could see Fran staring at us, probably because we were practically making out in public.  I didn’t care, Clark turned me on in ways I never imagined, and there wasn’t a moment that went by that I didn’t crave his touch, his lips, his everything.  

He leaned in close to my ear and his warm breath blew a breeze my way, causing me to shiver.  “Angel, let’s get out of here.  I need to be alone with you.”  The look in his eyes told me he wanted me, not to mention the stiffness I felt pressing against my thigh.  I wanted him, too.  “There’s somewhere I want to take you,” his hot breath whispered and his musky scent overtook my senses.  When he looked at me with those persuasive baby blues, it was hard to say no.  


My Review:
This is one of those rare cases where I wish I could rate higher than 5 stars b/c this novel truly deserves it. I have been anticipating the release of Love Love ever since I found out about it and it does not disappoint, definitely well worth the wait. I must admit that I have the honor of interacting with Beth Michele on a daily basis and I can without a doubt say that her personality shines through in her writing. This novel is basically an extension of herself and you can tell that she has poured her heart and soul into its creation. She is just such a breath of fresh air and her writing style is absolutely captivating. Emotionally, I was all over the place while reading. I laughed, I swooned, I cried, I cheered. The characters were so lovable and real, making connecting with them so easy.  The story flowed perfectly, and didn't rush through a single moment. Love Love is one of those feel good stories that leaves you smiling every time you think about it, and makes you take a deep happy sigh. Saying I enjoyed this one is a huge understatement, I absolutely LOVED it!!! I will undoubtedly read anything and everything she writes. <3
