Eight years have passed since Justin Morrison first laid eyes on Taylor Cardenes and fell head over heels in love with her, even though she could never be his. He's tried everything he can to get over her--including moving to another country--but she's still the only woman he'll ever want.
Eight years is a heck of a long time to secretly love someone. Taylor knows all too well how impossible it is to forget a man as sexy, sweet, and brilliant as Justin Morrison. So when he turns up on the doorstep of her Napa Valley bed and breakfast, she can't help but long for the happily-ever-after of her dreams.
As Taylor and Justin spend beautifully romantic mornings together watching the sun rise over the vineyards--and can't help but fall into each other's arms on wickedly sexy nights--it looks like they might finally get their chance at the love they've been waiting for. But will the secret Taylor has been keeping shatter everything in the end?
"If you love the Sullivans, make way for the Morrisons!" 5 stars from Pam
LOVE ME LIKE THIS is part of Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today bestselling series about the Morrisons. While it can easily be read as a standalone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books too.
Years ago I fell in love with Kiss Me Like This by Bella Andre, the first book in her Morrisons New Adult series. Andre released two books in the series, but it’s been years waiting for the next book. She’s finally released it, but it’s not New Adult now, it’s adult romance, which is okay with me. Love Me Like This by Bella Andre is exactly what I was expecting and I really enjoyed this one.
Love Me Like This is about Justin Morrison and Taylor Cardenes. They met in college and were the best of friends. But secretly Justin was a bit in love with her. Taylor had a boyfriend, so he never pushed it and they stayed friends. But finally Justin decided that he need to get some space from Taylor because he couldn’t move past her. So he took a job out of the country, and over the years they lost touch. Well, now Justin and Taylor are all grown up, and Justin’s siblings conspire to get them together. So Justin ends up staying at Taylor’s brand new Bed and Breakfast. And of course, they cannot deny their feelings anymore.
As is typical with a Bella Andre book, both Justin and Taylor were very easy to love. Justin has been working day and night trying to find a cure for cancer (a disease that took his mother’s life). And Taylor, after spending years in an occupation she didn’t love, decided to open up her own Bed and Breakfast. They are both such hard workers, and I loved that about them.
Justin has been away from his family, for a long time, and he misses his family. He might be ready to move back to the states. Taylor has a pretty big thing she’s dealing with, and it’s intense and scary. This big thing can definitely cause some struggles in a relationship, especially a new one.
It was so great to see these two reconnect and finally confess their feelings for each other. Taylor’s big secret, though, is a game changer. I loved how Justin immediately wanted to do everything he could for Taylor. Taylor’s stubbornness did sometimes frustrate me though.
Love Me Like This was also high on the cheese factor. That is somewhat common in Bella Andre’s books, and usually it’s not quite so over the top, but it was here. It wasn’t a deal breaker for me, but it did cause me to roll my eyes a bit. Eva Kaminsky was a great narrator, as she usually is for Bella Andre’s books.
Fans of big family romances, with very sweet characters and low angst would probably really enjoy Love Me Like This. I do prefer most of her Sullivan books to this one, but it’s still a good read.
