The new Green Mountain Romance from the New York Times bestselling author of And I Love Her.

Ella Abbott has long been secretly in love with Gavin Guthrie. A few recent encounters have only added to her infatuation, especially the kiss they shared at her sister’s wedding. It doesn’t matter to Ella that Gavin is in a bad place. He says there’s no hope for a future with him, that he has nothing to offer her. But all Ella cares about is the love she feels.

It’s been seven long years since Gavin lost his brother. He’d kept himself under control and moving forward until his brother’s beloved dog died and his brother’s widow re-married. Since then, he’s been drinking, fighting, and even getting arrested. It seems the only time his demons leave him alone is when Ella is around.

Gavin knows it wouldn’t be fair to drag Ella into his darkness, but when she inserts herself into his life, what choice does he have but to allow her to soothe his aching heart?

I really enjoy Marie Force books and I particularly liked the story of Ella and Gavin... As a reader of this wonderful series I have waited for this book knowing it would be filled with so much torment because of Gavin's inability to recover from his Army Captain brothers death in battle... Ella has loved Gavin forever but he was unable to return her love until a series of events transpired... Wonderful storytelling by Ms. Force and I am sorry I have to wait until 2016 to see what happens to Charlotte (Charley)... Chloe had Max baby in this book and what happens to them will no doubt be very interesting since Chloe doesn't want anything to do with Max or the baby at the moment... Write fast Ms. Force, your loyal readers are waiting...

3.5 stars Marie Force's Green Mountain Series is one that I've really enjoyed overall, some more than others, as is the case with any series, but I've enjoyed them all nonetheless. That said, Ella and Gavin's story is one that I've been especially looking forward to. I think it was because of the history they shared and how that history connected them, and the fact that we've seen hints of their relationship coming in past. Gavin had some major grief issues to deal with, which he didn't always handle in the best of ways, which in turn played a role in the issues he and Ella had to get past. They did get together, and when they did, they faced both heartbreaking and heartwarming moments, and then there is the whole Abbott clan........and if you know them, that's enough said. I love them all, but they are something else. While I did enjoy Ella and Gavin's story very much, I was hoping it would be a little more intense and have it's own uniqueness (more like books 1 and 2 in the series), I guess that is the best way to put it. It's Only Love is great, but it had more of a kind of an HBO (i.e. sexy moments) version of a Hallmark movie feel..........and that's not bad, but I was hoping for a little more depth. I love the Abbot family and I can't wait to read Charley's story, which is next in the series.

I felt like I'd been run over by an emotional Mack truck when I finished this book. Marie Force does creates an emotional journey that takes the reader right along with the characters. Gavin is a fantastic, complex character. The author really nailed what it's like to be drowning in grief. But Gavin's grief went deeper because it was intermingled with misplaced guilt. I really liked watching how Ella navigated the beginnings of their relationship, especially since both of them quickly admitted that while the relationship was new, the feelings weren't. Their feelings went back years and it just took them this long to be ready to embrace them. Their relationship was messy, complicated, and intense and perfect for both of them. The one and only struggle I had with their relationship was Gavin continuing to promise that he wouldn't walk away, that he would always be there. Where he was in his grief journey and their relationship, I felt it would have been better for him to promise to try. Both of these characters are driven intensely by their emotions and as such, it's got to be difficult for either of them to make promises that they won't be driven by those emotions to make poor decisions. I appreciate how the author included both Gavin and Ella's family in their relationship. It was no surprise to see the Abbott parents, as they are an integral part of the Green Mountain series, but I really liked how Gavin's parents were brought into the story and how Gavin's father, especially, helped Gavin work through all of the feelings he was having. In true Marie Force fashion, the Abbott siblings play a role in Gavin and Ella's story. We get to check in with the ones who have already found their happily-ever-after, and teased with those that haven't. And there was definitely some "Abbott brother" intimidation of Gavin as he was navigating his relationship with Ella - and it was delightful and fun to watch. This family loves each other, protects each other, and closes ranks when they need to. We've been getting to know the Abbott's in each book and by the time a character's book comes out, we can't wait to see how they find their happily-ever-after. Such is the case with It's Only Love. Another wonderful addition to the Green Mountain series.

Very touching and emotional continuance of the Abbott family. Love the way Marie makes you feel a part of the family. Looking forward to more from this series!

Marie Force once again tears out my heart in this latest installment to the Green Mountain series. Gavin broke my heart throughout the book. He just couldn’t come to terms with the loss of his brother, harboring insurmountable guilt. He’s on a self-destructive path that will only end in heartache for everyone. Ella has been in love with Gavin since forever. To watch the man you love go through what Gavin is going through, it’s the toughest thing she’s ever had to do. Should she keep hanging onto a man who “can’t” love her or move on to someone who can? I absolutely loved the book. Ella is certainly in a tough spot but she has an unshakeable inner strength that I admire. She knows her value and despite her love for Gavin, she will accept nothing less than everything. I also loved that we get to see more of the Abbott family. There are so many wonderful, exciting and hilarious scenes. And it’s not a Green Mountain book unless Fred the Moose makes a cameo. IT’S ONLY LOVE is not as gut wrenching and heartbreaking as Hannah’s book, but it’s certainly no walk in the park either. I highly recommend this and any book in the Green Mountain series. If you love a large and boisterous family full of laughter and love, then this is the series for you. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
