There's two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.

This is ours.

The cardinal rule of friendship is you don't mess with your friend's sister.

That goes double when she's his little sister.

It was just supposed to be fun.

She wasn't supposed to end up being the love of my life. And I definitely wasn't supposed to break her heart.

Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should've been a warning that she's a hopeless romantic. That should've clued me in that she believes love conquers all.

But there are some things that love can't fix. I'm one of them.

She thinks love is the answer.

But love is the reason I let her go.

Prescott Lane is a new author to me and why that is I have no idea why that is. This is a beautifully written book that touched me on so many levels and is in my opinion a second chance at love story about Rhett and Ainsley. Just Love is a story of regret, forgiveness, love and laughter. It is an emotional roller coaster of a read that had me captivated from the first to the last page. The connection between Rhett and Ainsley is intense and I was absolutely hooked. The writing was strong and the characters, particularly Rhett, Ainsley and Sadie were well written and interesting. There were times that I laughed so hard whilst reading but there were also times when I sobbed my heart out; my emotions all over the place. Just Love is a story that may leave you with a book hangover, I know it did for me.

Just Love by Prescott Lane is a standalone contemporary romance. It literally is a before and after story. The couple falling in love up until an event happens to change their lives, and then the couple finding their way back to each other in spite of the event and all the fallout it entailed. It was emotional. I'm not talking a little bit of angst and drama but BOOM happily ever after. I'm talking it made me uncomfortable the level of pain these characters were subjected to. It was sooo well written and handled with such class. I kept wanting that magic fiction-switch to be pulled so that everyone was suddenly 100% again, no issues. But that would have not done justice to Rhett and Ainsley at all. Instead, the author stayed the course and gave these two the best ending. I usually steer away from such emotional entanglements in my book world and wasn't expecting it but I enjoyed it. Hope you do too.

Just Love is wonderfully written, and it's obvious that a lot of time was taken with this story. The care involved in getting this one right shines through. That said, this book is a whole lot angsty, a lot more than I usually read. Granted, the blurb doesn't give anything away, so I had no idea just how heartbreaking this journey was going to get. With that in mind, I won't give any details here either, just be warned. There are some lighter moments as well as some steam with great chemistry, but much of this one will absolutely break your heart. Now, I said all of that to say this - despite all of the angst, despite the times when I wanted to put this down for something lighter, despite the tears when it got really hard to read, I'm still glad I read it. Rhett and Ainsley are terrific characters, and their story is one that will stick with me.

First let's address the beauty that is this cover. It's perhaps the prettiest cover I've ever seen. I ordered the paperback edition because I need this perfection on my shelf. I love it so much! My appreciation for Just Love doesn't stop at the cover. I was so invested in main characters Ainsley and Rhett (as well as the secondary characters Skye and Brody) and loved going on the journey of this story with them. Author Prescott Lane gives the reader the flirty build-up, sexual tension, and steamy moments that we all love in romances but then she takes this story so much further. This is possibly the most realistic contemporary romance I've read. I love that this book isn't just about the beginning of a relationship but also deals with the days, months, and years that follow, including the good times and the bad. I haven't read many romances that address the day to day commitment that a long term relationship requires but Just Love does this and I finished the book feeling inspired and appreciative of my marriage vows. Just Love is endearing, charming, and captivating. It took my heart on an emotional journey but at the end I was left smiling, amazed at the strength and fortitude of true love.

You'll never see this coming!!! Is it strange that my reading habits this week seem to have taken a turn to the grittier side of life?? Mostly it’s dirty sexy, often sweet and swoony stories that make me hot under the collar- or further south if I’m being honest lol, or just plain and simple happy to have read it. But this week, I have read not 1 but 2 books that have had me stop and think, I mean, really, really think; about the other side of life. The one we don’t really come up against in our everyday lives, well, I don’t for one. Just Love isn’t just a love story, it’s so much more than that. The ties that bind Ainsley and Rhett together are many and binding, but sometimes, even that isn’t enough. It started out as a simple best friend’s little sister romp, but it became so much more. Deeper, harsher, harder. It plunged me into a gut-wrenching, emotion soaked, fear ridden roller-coaster ride. I laughed in the beginning, I huffed and ground my teeth in the middle and I cried. I full on snot-cried at the end. Sadie, aaah, Sadie!!! This story has it all. Love, laughter, anger, despair, regret, forgiveness and all consuming love. It’s sure to be on my list for this years TOP reads. Grab your copy today, but be sure to keep the tissues close, you’re going to need them.

I LOVE to read new and new-to-me authors and Prescott Lane is just that! This ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS cover is the first thing that drew me in...and then I read the blurb and I was intrigued! Let me just say that NOTHING prepared me for what I was about to read behind said cover!!! This book (and this author) TOTALLY BLEW ME AWAY with this STELLAR, CAPTIVATING, ANGST-FILLED and HEART-SMASHING 5+ star read!!! Just Love is a standalone, told in dual point of view with a twist (this INCREDIBLE story goes back and forth between the past and the present but it really couldn't be told any other way!) I was immediately hooked in the first chapter....actually, I was hooked after reading the blurb, to tell you the truth...and it just got better and better as I read! I went through the entire gamut of emotions. From the initial awareness of a teenaged girl (Ainsley) that her brother's best friend (Rhett...how PERFECT is that?) is HAWT to her having a HUGE unrequited crush on him to the heart-and-soul-satisfying conclusion and ALLLLLL the angst and heart-break in between, I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with these characters!!! The roller-coaster ride of emotions starts in the first chapter and never lets up the entire journey! All I can say is, you WILL need TONS of tissue (and maybe have some chocolate and wine, or your alcoholic beverage of choice, handy as well!) Prepare to have your heart DECIMATED...but Ms. Lane finishes it off PERFECTLY in the end and puts it all back together again, definitely not the same as it was BEFORE this epic journey, but I think, better than it was before reading this unique, UNFORGETTABLE, UTTERLY UN-PUT-DOWNABLE TOP FAVE READ of 2019!!! I can't wait to read more from this author if THIS is an example of what I've been missing!!! " , . ' , ' . . ' ' . ' ' . ' . . ' ."

Firstly, I couldn't start this review without making mention of the cover! It is stunning! Now I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but if you are already going into it with a smile, its got to be a plus. This novel took me on so many paths before we got to the epilogue, that at first I was unsure if it was for me. There are two parts to the novel, and the first part is a little jumpy with past and present times and the two different lead characters. Once I got that worked out, it flowed much better. At one point, I thought I knew where the storyline was going, but at the half way mark, I was totally wrong. And it surprised me in a good way, a sad way, but it gave the book more spunk and backbone. It also made the present time, part one, make more sense in their choices. I hope that isn't too cryptic, as I do not want to give anything away. Its a story that you need to travel and explore on your own. What I will tell you is these characters had me liking them, loving them, hating them, loving them, so you can see I got all the ambience I am sure the author was trying to convey. Yes, it is a brothers best friend trope, as well as a second chance romance, but it is so much more than that. There is definitely angst, and the good angst that has your heart beating fast, and holding your breath waiting for the outcome. At times, I was mad at them both, but when you truly take in what had happened, and how can things ever be the same, it wasn't until the last few chapters, when Rhett was showing her, that I put myself in their shoes. I have no idea how I would handle the situation, and I would hope with the same grace that Ainsley did, but they both had to come to terms with it and go through all the emotions. And then, I 'just' wanted to hug them both and be excited for their future. Lastly, I cherished that epilogue. It was the best conclusion for this couple and it made my heart melt. This is the first book I have read from this author and I know I will be looking out for more from her. ** Reviewed by Monique for JoandIsaLoveBooks Blog.

Prescott Lane has become a favorite of mine. She has a way of dragging me heart over head in love. Ainsley and Rhett are a heartache in waiting. Their emotions are a frustrating mix of breathless, heartbreaking and unpredictable. Just Love is romance at it's best and heartache at it's worst. From ugly cry to winning smile and captivating storytelling. A heart can only take so much, but Lane makes the painful moments a worthwhile journey.
