5 Star review of Perfect Love Story (Love #1) by Natasha Madison   From the start of this book I was anxious. What would you do if you find that everything you believed and the life you had led was based on a lie? That is the position that Hailey finds herself in when her husband suddenly dies and her answer is to move to the country next door to Jensen. When Jensen finds himself suddenly single with a daughter, Mila to look after he finds himself struggling. He is not the most pleasant man to have around, in fact he was a jerk. The last thing either Hailey or Jensen want is to dive in to a new relationship. However neither of them count on a determined 4 year old. What a beautiful love story this book turned out to be. Jensen was such an alpha male, strong and extremely protective., even if he acted badly initially. I fell for hard for all the characters in this story. Such was the depth and strength of Natasha Madison’s writing and her ability to draw the reader in. The camaraderie between Hailey and her cousin/best friend Crystal was funny and loving; I loved the relationship they have. Perfect Love Story evoked so many emotions within me that I am not sure I can express my feelings clearly. I was invested in Hailey and Jensen from the start. Perfect Love Story was at times like riding an emotional roller coaster; I laughed, I cried, I swooned. It is a second chance at love story, of overcoming the past, learning to trust again, full of hope, determination and one which I loved from start to finish.

~4.5 STARS~ Wow!!! What a way for a book to start out! My heart broke for Hailey. Imagine losing your husband in a horrific accident, and then learning he wasn’t even your legal husband. He was married and had another family! I’m not sure how she put one foot in front of the other at times. She has a hugely supportive family and best friend who suggests she leaves town and moves somewhere else to make a brand new start. Life is mysterious, and her HEA may be closer than she ever thought. Jensen is also dealing with heartache. The woman he loved and thought he would spend the rest of his life with walks away leaving him to raise their daughter by himself. As you can imagine, he isn’t going to be able to easily trust anyone...especially even his new neighbor, Hailey. When these two meet for the first time, it’s fireworks and not the good kind. She has moved into the house he built for his ex, and he seems stuck in the past, treating Hailey with disdain because of his ex. Thankfully, he finally he begins letting her in, and she begins trusting again. As much as this is a romance, it’s also a book on grief and all the stages from anger and sadness. It is full of hope and second beginnings as well. Something terrible happened to both Jensen and Hailey, but if it hadn’t, they never would have found their happily ever after. And, if two people ever deserved joy and love, it was these two. ***Read and Reviewed for Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews***

What a brilliant Start to the new Love Series by Natasha Madison, this is one of the most beautiful love stories I have read, it captivated me, it drew me in and my heart is still trying to recover. I don’t want to give this story away because I have to say this book is A MUST READ and I don’t want to spoil it for you so all I’m just going to tell you is what I loved about it. In the Perfect Love Story we are taken on a journey and that journey is not all sweetness and light there are times you will cry in fact you will probably sob but I can tell you every tear you shed will be worth it because this love story is beautifully written, I connected with Jensen and Hailey because the hurdles they had to cross felt real. The title really says it all this is The Perfect Love Story with characters that will make you smile as well as cry as their journey unfolds and what can I say about Jensen’s adorable little girl apart from my ovaries just might have exploded. This book is not only a love story it’s also about family and friends who live in a beautiful seaside town where friendships come first. I can’t wait for book 2 in this series, I need to know how life is treating the other couples we got to meet in this wonderful book. Loved this book so much and if I could give it 10 Stars I would because it certainly deserves more than 5 Stars.

Oh yeah that was a goody. Okay so I might have used a few nasty words to describe that turd but you'll understand once you read it. So from the blurb you get that something really twisted happened and yeah it does and it's a big one. The book is well written and the author takes her time giving us all of the info but man this was an awesome read. The pain and heartbreak she deals with is more than anyone should have to. The blows he is delivered definitely give them something to talk about. This author does a great job in laying out the story and yeah it's the kind of love story you don't want to live through but for these two it works out well. I haven't read this author before but she is on my radar now. I can't wait to see what's up with Gabe and Crystal, I guess that shows I will be staying around. Great story

Yet another side to the writing of Natasha Madison... I've read all her books and followed her right from the 1st book (which I loved) and this book and now series is totally different than the other two or three styles of writing that she has shown us in her previous books. This was new but also very good and I enjoyed the ride that she took me on in this story. Not the humorous side, nor the danger/angst side - this book takes us down the emotional journey of what happens when your life falls apart and you have to start over again. What happens when everything you thought you knew is ripped apart and you have to make your life and reality over again?! Is there love and healing after heartbreak - of course and this story explores that in a lovely, sweet story with many new characters that I am just eager to get my hands on! Can't wait for more!

As soon as I read the synopsis to Perfect Love Story, I knew it was something that I just had to read. The story line intrigued me as it is pretty different then other books out there. To have a marriage, a life, a love that is entirely based on a lie is something so hard to get over. I couldn't wait to find out what happened and if Hailey was ever able to move on. If you have ever been so lucky to read a book by Natasha Madison, then you know that you are in for a real treat. Madison has this ability to draw her readers in with just one swipe of her pen and the flip of a page. Madison does not disappoint in her latest book, as it constantly surprising readers and very refreshing from the other books out there. The story line is beautifully written, allowing for both Hailey and Jensen to get over what they lost and try to move forward with their lives. The dynamics between Hailey and Jensen were like fireworks and as a reader I couldn't wait for them to explode, as you knew it was going to be good. Jensen was so hard on Hailey at first, but the more she was thrown into the mix of his life, the more he was drawn to her. I loved the way Madison wrote the story, as nothing ever felt forced or coerced. The two just naturally fit together like a perfect puzzle .... like a perfect love story. If you are looking for a book that will bring you so much more fulfillment and enjoyment then some of the other books out there, then Perfect Love Story is the book for you. Madison does a great job in creating two characters who just naturally fit and creates a story line that just flourishes their love. I really enjoyed Madison's latest treasure and cannot wait for her next book. Make sure you add Perfect Love Story to your To-Be-Read Shelf.

Loved this book, how to get sunshine out of rain. These two broken souls shows that the impossible is possible.

I really enjoyed this book. It packed a real emotional punch right from the start and you just know that you're in for one heck of a ride from there on in. For me, this was a really beautiful romance and one that just gives you all the feels when reading. Hailey and Jensen were great characters that clearly had chemistry but I really enjoyed the slow build up of their relationship and it's been a while since I was so desperately routing for a couple's HEA. For me, I actually could have done with a little more from this couple as I just felt that there was room for a little bit more about them. Albeit, I loved the epilogues. While this is an emotional read, the secondary characters were great all round in this story and provided much light relief. This really was a beautiful story of heartbreak, healing and second chances and I highly recommend this book. I can't wait for the next book from this series. I was provided with a copy of this book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation and I have opted to leave a review.

I absolutely loved this newest book by this talented author. This is the story of Hailey and Jensen. Hailey's world is turned upside down when she learns that the life she was living was all a lie. Consumed by grief and anger by the situation she knows in order to heal that she needs to leave and start anew. Jensen hasn't had the easiest last 4 years of his life. His high school sweetheart leaves him and their daughter for his best friend. He is determined to give Mila the best life possible. He makes certain that no one will get past his walls he has carefully erected around his heart. That all changes when he comes across Hailey. He doesn't know how to handle her so he is rude to her at first. After seeing how Hailey and his daughter Mila interact with each other...he starts to see that Hailey isn't so bad. Together they are able to heal each other's wounds and develop a relationship that is truly beautiful. They are so perfect for each other. I loved everything about their story...I laughed, ugly cried, and swooned at how sweet Jensen could be. I can't wait for Crystal and Gabe's story next....they were cracking me up with their antics! This book was another hit by this author and I highly recommend it to everyone. Well done!!!!

An extraordinary, powerful, and captivating, love story, the perfect love story! An absolutely amazing book that brings two broken people the happily ever after they deserve. Perfect Love Story by Natasha Madison is the first book in the Love series, the beginning of a must read series! This book was everything I was expecting and then some. It was the perfect mix of angst, sexy, and sweet. Hailey’s world comes crashing down the day her cousin delivers the news that her husband is dead. Little did Hailey know that losing her husband wasn't the worst of it. Her husband's death was just the beginning of a lot of heartache and suffering. How does one move on after finding out, that the life you knew and loved was all a lie? By moving away. Hailey's grandmother convinced her to move and find an escape, somewhere quiet and peaceful. Moving away was probably the best thing Hailey ever did, it led her to a new and better life. It also led her to Jensen and Mila. At one point Jensen had it all, he had a beautiful home, a wife he loved, and a daughter that was his entire world. Just like that it all went crashing down when his wife left him and his daughter for another man. Heartbroken Jensen sets out to be the best father to his daughter, Mila, but sets up walls a mile high around his heart. When Hailey and her cousin move into the house he had built for his family, he is outraged and wants them out. But Hailey is not leaving without a fight. After spending time with Hailey, he realizes there might be hope yet, and starts to open up to the possibility of falling in love again, “So are you going to kiss me or not?” That was the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Hailey and Jensen. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions. It is a journey that brings two very deserving people together. Both suffering in their own ways, find love again in each other. One of my favorite reads this year! Not only will you fall in love with Jensen, Mila, and Hailey but all the secondary characters as well. The family dynamic is absolutely perfect. Perfect Love Story is flawless, Natasha did an extraordinary job giving us something to rave about. An absolute must read! I can’t wait for the second book in this series! Definitely a 5 star read!! *Review by Nancy, Late Night Reviewer for Up All Night w/ Books Blog*

This read is a I'm going break you down so bad, and then stomp on you, before it slowly makes everything okay. It was so intense at the beginning but then it was so mellow at the end . The ending was like a huge breath of fresh air, it put me in a very peaceful state. Hailey is a newlywed like 6 months and her husband has a accident that changes Everything, She finds out so very disturbing truths about her husband that breaks her and she is propelled into the pits of a deep dark depression. She makes her way to the beach with her best friend Crystal to get away, to try and find herself again. Hailey ends up finding Mila a princess and her arrogant father who happens to own the house that Hailey and Crystal are staying in. It is a sore painful reminder of Mila's Mom. Jensen Walker is a broken man who is just living for his beautiful daughter, he is angry and takes it out on Mila's new friend, Hailey.When two people have been burned so bad, it amazes me how they help heal one another.It is a beautiful love story that has you needing Jensen and Hailey to get their happily ever after. This read is a slow burn that was probably the smoothest transition from hate to well sneaking out when the sun is coming up. All the characters make this book so much extra, you will love them all.

Perfect Love Story was so very appropriately titled! It was simply perfect!!! Natasha Madison wrote such an amazingly beautiful breathtaking love story. It was not at all what I was expecting based on the title. It was even better!! It was gut wrenching, emotional, heartfelt, wonderful, and just so beautiful. I cried, I got angry, I laughed and I swooned. So yeah, just perfect! Hailey and Jensen will take hold of your heart and never let go.

First of all, I have to say that with every book that Natasha Madison writes, she just keeps getting better and better and better. Having said that, Perfect Love Story is ABSOLUTELY Natasha's BEST book to date and I don't know HOW she can top THIS one!!! This story is soooooo much more than a love's about life going on after THE most devastating of losses, it's about discovering your OWN strengths and realizing just how much you can endure and keep going, getting up every morning and facing whatever it is life has to toss at you and coming out the other side, whole, complete and with the greatest gift life has to offer! THIS story has it ALL...the ANGST, the UTTER HEART-BREAK, the INTENSE FEELS that make you soar to the heavens and drag you to the depths of despair!!! But MOST of all, you feel the LOVE! This new series has started off with a BANG and I can't WAIT for the next one! Bravo are a shining star in this glorious Indie world!!!

Perfect Love Story is exactly that. Beautifully, unbelievably perfect. This is one of those books that digs deep right into your heart. That you never, ever want it to end. That you finish and just hug to your chest because it was so utterly wonderful. That is just some of what this book is. Filled with so much emotion it makes your heart hurt, I was captivated from the very first page. I didn’t devour this book, it devoured me. I was sobbing within minutes of starting this. Natasha Madison writes so beautifully the characters just come to life and the emotions are so powerful. I shattered with Hailey and then I healed with her. Hailey’s story isn’t an easy one to take. What happens to her is so devastating, but surrounded by incredible family she survives what most wouldn’t recover from. Even surviving doesn’t means she’s really living though, but when she meets the adorable little girl who’s father just happens to be someone she thinks is a jerk she slowly begins to live again. Jensen has also been put through the wringer. A single father still bitter after a horrible divorce he’s got walls that no one has managed to climb, until Hailey arrives. Both of these shattered hearts start to heal in one of the best love stories I have ever had the pleasure to read. Hailey and Jensen’s story is one of real, true love. Full of raw emotion and healing their story is one I’ll read again and again. I can’t wait for the next in this series!

Wow, amazing, awesome......just wow! This book is my favourite of the year, an awesome slow burn (I love slow burn) love story of two broken souls put together. I couldn’t put it down, but when I had too as work made me stop reading, Hailey and Jensen where in my mind permanently. And don’t let me start with the princess, cute little thing. I recommend this book to everyone! I need book 2 ASAP 5 for “Perfect love story” and 4 for this awesome cover
