“LOVE LIKE THIS creates a world of emotions and turmoil, describing superbly the mind of a young lady (Keira) and her struggles to balance her social life and her career. Sophie Love is a natural storyteller. LOVE LIKE THIS is very well written and edited, and I highly recommend it to the permanent library of all readers that appreciate a romance that can be savored during a weekend.”
--Books and Movie Reviews (Roberto Mattos)
“A very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”
--Books and Movies Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re: For Now and Forever)
LOVE LIKE THAT (The Romance Chronicles—Book #2) is book #2 in a new romance series by #1 bestselling author Sophie Love.
Keira Swanson, 28, returns to New York, her head spinning from her Ireland trip and still madly in love with Shane. But when a surprise event comes between them, their relationship may have to end.
Keira is a star at her magazine, though, and they give her their next plum assignment: to travel to Italy for 30 days and discover what the Italian secret is to love.
Keira, still reeling from her Ireland trip, finds her high expectations for Italy dashed, as nothing at first goes as was planned. In her whirlwind trip through Italy, spanning Naples, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Rome, Verona, Venice and Florence, Keira begins to wonder if the Italians really do hold a secret to love.
That is, until she meets her new tour guide—and everything she thought she knew is turned on its head.
A whirlwind romantic comedy that is as profound as it is funny, LOVE LIKE THAT is book #2 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, and will keep you turning pages late into the night—and will make you fall in love with romance all over again.
Book #3 is also now available!
Book 2 completely erases everything about book 1
At the end of book 1 there is hope for a couple by the famous matchmaker who never gets it wrong. The whole book was leading to that. Book 2 completely erases that and makes book 1 not even necessary and debunks all myths about love book 1 set out to ring true.
I also believed that her relationship in book 1 was more believable. Perhaps if the author had ended Keira’s relationship with Shane differently, it might have made for a better romance story in Italy.
Overall, disappointed with this book and as I will continue to read the series, I don’t think they will captivate me as much as the love story between Keira and Shane
So unrealistic, horribly edited. And unbelievable. I groaned during the first book because of its preposterous plot (and again, horrible editing - her “time” was all off) but thought I’d try this second one since I am a masochistic optimist. And, I liked Shane even though he talked like an American with the same slang - despite being in a remote part of Ireland and growing up on an Irish sheep farm. The author throws out the words love and soulmates like Baskin Robbins flavor the month. I understand that there is more than one love in a lifetime. But Love isn’t a 30 day wash and rinse cycle. I was shocked and dumbfounded with what she did with the plot line. She totally invalidated the first book and as a reader, I don’t like being told my last commitment of time to her was a waste. Readers give their authors trust that they won’t force or manipulate stories. A good author would have told Keira’s stories with compassion and humanity. We would have felt a slow realization about the complications and subtleties of love. I don’t care that she wound up with Cristiano (I can’t even say that name in my head without thinking “who names their character that?” That in itself was a contrivance), I just wanted it to be understandable as to why.
Want a romance novel that you cannot put down? Then this is it. Join Keira and Shane on an exciting adventure in Ireland as they explore their feelings for one another. It Is a page turning romance that will leave wanting more and more.
