Jason Michaels knows second chances are very much a part of “happy ever after.” He’s seen it firsthand, more than once. So when will it be his turn? He has a great group of friends and family to share his life with, but he knows there is one thing still missing. Love isn’t something he’s been avoiding, he just hasn’t found it yet… or has he?

Tori Peterson has made mistakes in her life, but they all pale in comparison to her marriage. Luckily, she’s a woman who quickly learned from her mistakes. Doing everything in her power to escape the man who promised to cherish her, she builds herself a life she can be proud of. Never again will she be fooled into being with a man who she might love. She knows she has too much to lose.

Her hope? That she will recognize real love when she finds it. Her fear? That her past will catch her before she has a chance to find the love she deserves, the love that is required … So what happens when her hopes and fears catch up to her at the same time?

Megan's 5-Star Review!

I received a gifted copy of this book for honest review. I will definitely say a easy 5 stars for me…and I don't give those out easily.

This is book 3 of Melanie Codina's The Real Love Series which focuses on Jason Michaels. After being witness to both his brother Jake and childhood friend Allie both find a second chance at love after heartbreak and tragedy he knows it is possible but it just hasn't happened for him…Until he meets Tori. Alpha male through and through he is surprised by his dominant protective instincts wanting to claim her immediately, but there is so much more to her story. He knows she is the one, but will his happily every after come to be or will the demons from her past destroy what they could have?

OMG…I love this book so much! Being a new to me author I literally devoured all three books in this series in less than 48 hours and each one has had me laughing, crying, and cursing. I was sucked in from the get go and able to identify with each character. Melanie has created a interwoven story focusing on an amazing group of friends who are constantly there to love, tease, support, and knock the sense into each other when it is needed. The real-life situations she describes are not all the butterflies and rainbow love stories…they are about real things that can and do happen in real life to anyone and how someone moves on from those situations.

Tori is an amazingly strong character…the subject of an abusive husband who risks everything to save her unborn child. Tori is surviving on her own nicely when she meets the chivalrous, handsome, charming, and well-mannered Jason who sweeps her off her feet. Both she and her daughter are enveloped into the group and all is well…until her ugly past threatens all she and Jason have together.

Without giving away any details all I can say is go and get this series if you have not read it and prepare for a rollercoaster ride of emotions. True love, the best friendships, fantastic sex, and potential disaster will grip you from the first page and make you want more with every tap of your finger. I love, love, loved this series and all of the characters Melanie has brought to life…seeing as there is still one more of the group to find love you can bet my one-clicker will be ready for another installment to a fan-freaking-tastic series!

Due to some very intense sex scenes and violence I would not recommend this book for anyone under 18…however, though quite descriptive these scenes are very tastefully written, HOT, and not offensive… at least to me ;)








About the Author:

Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one, and nurse to many. If you don’t believe her, just ask anyone in her family, they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffer, the keeper of missing socks, a genius according to a six year old, the coolest soccer uniform coordinator according to a twelve year old, and the best damn ‘mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last title isn’t really official, but it’s still pretty cool to be called it.
When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way
