Overview

My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.
Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.
That’s where my story should have ended.
Almost three years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.
The only question was…
Would I give it to him

    I finished Love's Suicide early this am and I truly loved it!  This was not your typical boy wants girl gets girl story.  I fell in love with Brooks right from the start .  Branch I liked but I didn't love and I don't know why but I felt that way through out the book.  Katy didn't have an easy life and boy did she have to work at getting her true love.  I have read all of Jennifer Foor's books, enjoyed them all but this was different and special.  Once again thank you for an amazing story!  Katy and Brooks what an amazing, funny, sexy and finally happy story.

    Great!!

    I love all Jennifer foor books! I have yet to find one i was not happy with. And though i did give this book 4 stars i would have given it 5 stars had the whole middle part of the story with bobby the man from hell wasnt so long i mean that could have been much shorter part of the book but still be important to storybwith out going on for so long because as the reader i just wanted kat and brooks to get it together already! I know most would agree with me. But the other reason i didnt give it 5 stars was that kat didnt really tell the town and her so called friend off!! Thats something i would have liked to see i mean after all despite the fact kat doesnt see herself as all that strong she could of had a monment where she really thought about it all and just told sarah off i would have loved to have seen kat feel strong all on her own! Now however this book is wonderful, sexy, funny, very sad at times but not so sad you as the reader wants to put the book down and walk away. Jennifer Foor is one of my very very favorite romance writers and i can wait for her next book. Keep them coming we will be waiting.

    This book gave me a surprising mix of emotions.  I find it difficult to come up with the words to express how I feel about this book.  It was so different than the other books and series that Jenn Foor has written.  A story full of mixed feelings of unconditional love, guilt, sorrow, hopelessness, fear, happiness, and forgiveness.  Well worth the read!!

    OMG I just finished Love Suicide by Author Jennifer Foor




    I was given the book for an honest review. 
    Jenn is an awesome writer. She pulled me in from the beginning. She makes you feel everyone's emotions. I felt so bad for Katy at times but then I felt like she brought somethings on herself for not being true to herself. I laughed , I cried and I even wanted to throw my kindle. I give this a 5+star rating. i will recommend to all my friends.Kitty Via

    You'll fall in LOVE with the Love's Suicide cast! 

    OMG! This book has SO much emotion in it. I don't think 5 stars is enough... I'm torn between wanting more and being worried of what trouble the Valentines could get into next... 

    I knew when the date on the date on the prologue was September 11th, 2001 it was going to be sad. But I had no idea how sad and how fast. When you have tears running down your face and you are still in the prologue, you know the author has hit a home run! I was already so invested in the characters and it had just begun. I was so heart broken and happy and heart broken and happy for Katy (repetition intended). If you are going to read this in public be sure to have something to wipe your face and blow your nose! As the story progresses over the next 12 years there are many ups and downs, twists and turns, communication failures - as needed in any good romance ;) I have fallen so hard for Brooks. His selflessness is an attribute not seen as often as it should be these days! And now a bit about the story ...

    Katy has grown up next to and with twins Branch and Brooks her whole lives. Their parents are best friends and neighbors. So who better share your first kiss with than your best friends? The next morning Katy is sure her mom knows something is up as she drives them to school. But before her mom can discuss it with her that night both her parents are at the Pentagon and are killed in the terrorist attack on 9/11/01. Katy's parents had planned for the worst and the Valentines (the twins parents) took Katy in. As they matured the first kiss feelings at 12 had grown and she found herself loving both brothers. Now comes the hard part - choosing. Follow Katy, Branch and Brooks on this loving and heartbreaking journey of love, betrayal, birth, abuse, death, and more! 

    Favorite passages:
    - How I'd let myself fall for two brothers was beyond me.
    - Just like B learning something new, I had to learn to take baby steps. I had to be patient and kind if I wanted this to all work out.
    - If you fall, I'll catch you. I always have and always will.
    - "Never thank me for taking care of you. I was put on this earth to do it and you know it, too."
    - Look, life isn't always wonderful. There are ugly parts. You know that more than anyone. What you do with those ugly parts is what makes you the woman you are.

    Where to start, 5 stars are not enough¿..LOVED LOVED LOVED this

    Where to start, 5 stars are not enough…..LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!  As a fan of Jenn Foor’s work I was not surprised that I would enjoy her new release but I devoured it and I think that this may now be my FAVORITE book from her.  Brooks Valentine…..YES PLEASE!




    This book was AMAZING!  I knew at 3% in when the tears started to fall that this book was going to be an emotional ride.  What a ride it was! 




    Katy Michaels + Brooks Valentine = First Love denied!




    It seemed as if the universe was determined to keep these to apart, but they say love conquers all and a love that deep would not be denied, even if it took forever to find.




    Suffering from the loss of her parents, Katy moves in with her neighbors, her parent’s best friends and into the home of her best friends, Branch and Brook Valentine…twins.




    "Kat, have you asked yourself how long your going to gon on with my brother before you realize you picked the wrong guy?" ~ Brooks 




    Katy has strong feelings for Brooks, he’s always been her protector but when it appears that her feelings are not returned she finds comfort in the arms of Branch.  Severing just about all ties with Brooks when he enlists and set to marry Branch the world stands still when they see each other again for the first time.












    You could feel the pull between Brooks and Katy.  He was absolutely the swoonworthy twin.  Gentle, kind, caring, protective and smoking hot!!  You could tell that Katy was settling and trying to make everyone else happy but there were little things here and there that made me dislike Branch early on and boy did he prove to have earned it all! 




    Unable to deny themselves, Brooks and Katy find solace in each other’s arms and just as quickly as they reunite they are torn apart.  That’s where Katy’s life starts to unravel and fast.




    "What if I don't know how to stop loving you? ~ Katy
    "You have to." ~ Brooks
    "I can't." ~ Katy




    Alone in a new town, where no one knows her, she finds that she may not be alone after all.  Her night with Brooks may stay with her forever.  Enter Bobby…..not a fan!! Did not like him from the start.  Maybe it was because I was pulling for Katy and Brooks .  He was too pushy and determined to make Katy his.  When she finally agreed to spend more time with him it was his opening to claim her and break her.  Don’t get me wrong he had few “decent” moments but none of his behavior should be condoned by anyone. 




    The light in the darkness for Katy was “B” a/k/a Brooklyn Valentine…..her love child. Katy lived with her decision to keep “B” a secret until she couldn’t anymore.   How much loss can one girl take, losing Brooks twice in one lifetime just seemed absolutely cruel but when the truth is revealed there is no stopping Katy from getting to him……or is there.




    Grrrr……Bobby….ugh…..where’s your pride?  He was yet another person determined to keep Brooks and Katy apart but when push comes to shove…..Katy has finally decided that she will not allow anyone or anything keep her from Brooks and their daughter.  When the story comes full circle we are brought right back to where it all began.




    "I don't want to be your friend, because I need more than that.  Open your eyes woman.  I want to be your everything.  I always have.
      ~ Brooks




    This story covers such a range of emotions. Love, deceit (many layers of deciet), longing, heartbreak, abuse, guilt, anger and forgiveness and did I mention love.  This story has soooo many twists and turns and it kept me glued to my kindle as I didn’t want to miss a minute of Katy and Brook”s story.    Go…..1 ~click this book and take the ride with Katy and Brooks and experience the awesomeness of Jennifer Foor’s writing!

    What a beautifully heartbreaking story. I literally had a hard time getting anything done because I was glued to this book! Your one true love and not being with them just ripped my heart out...the obsticals they had to endure but made them that much stronger. B was a little cutie and she handeled everything so well for being so young.

    This book had the potential to be a great love story. The grammatical errors and poor editing were hard to ignore. Who says...on account of?
