A spin-off from the best-selling series Something So comes a whole brand of crazy & wild love stories.


Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it.
Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn't be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds. 

After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms.
When I wasn't paying attention, my guard slipped.


They call me Private Mark for a reason—my whole life is a secret.
For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her ... under me.
Now that I had her, I wasn't letting her go. I thought we were on the same page.
I thought we were building something great.

Boy, was I ever wrong.

I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I'd walk away.

She was wrong.

Now it's time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have ... This Is Love.

I finished this book a few days ago and it’s taken me a while to put pen to paper because I’m really not sure how to do this story justice, can my mere words explain what this book did to me, well let’s start with this is a book that as soon as you read the first chapter you know it’s something special you know this love story will stay with you forever and it’s a book that will be read and re-read. This is Vivienne and Mark’s story and oh what tale they have to tell and believe me you do want to join their journey to find love .... Vivienne doesn’t believe in love and relationships and she is determined to live life having fun and loving and leaving them and Mark on the other hand believes he has meet “the one” when Vivienne crosses his path . So how does this story pan out for this adorable couple well I guess you need to read the book to find that out because I believe you need to dive in with no expectations no preconceived ideas about their journey, this is love story that’s best read first hand. This story of love and friendships has all the feels you want in a great read and am I sorry it’s the last in this trio of books very much so but this author certainly left the best to last and it certainly deserves more than the 5 Stars I can give it. I loved everything about this book and so will you.

From start to finish Natasha Madison wove such an engaging story that I couldn’t help but be hooked. This is Vivienne and Mark’s story and oh what a fabulous story it is. Vivienne has no intention of ever falling in love again or committing to a relationship, in fact she is bound and determined to avoid it at all cost. Mark, on the other hand firmly believes that he has found “the one” and that they are moving towards a committed future together. Vivienne has no filter, she a loyal friend you is always their to support you, no matter the situation, some may even say she is wild and I love her. I fell hard and fast for Mark, not only is he hot, but he is totally swoon worthy and I wanted him to overcome the walls that Vivienne has erected and to be the one to get through to her. The chemistry between Vivienne and Mark was off the charts and so smoking hot and you could almost feel the air sizzling as you read their story. Vivienne and Mark are a great pairing and I really wanted them to get their happily ever after, although at times I feared they wouldn’t. This is Love is a story of of friendship, love and family and one I couldn’t put down. Loved, loved, loved this story.

If you've been following this series then you will recognize Vivienne from the very beginning! We've had bits and pieces and small glimpses of her throughout. I've come to know her as a care free serial dater who loves men ... but not much more. Finally we have her story and we learn why she is so against relationships and she also comes up against her match - Mark! I loved this story a lot and it tied things up nicely. Mark was the perfect foil for Vivienne and I loved their HEA. If you haven't read the series you will still enjoy it as it can be read as a standalone but you should definitely check out the other books anyway!

4.5 stars I've been waiting for Vivienne's story. I knew there was so much more depth to her then the glimpses we've seen in previous books. I love her sense of humor and she has such a big heart. She's just worried about someone breaking it so she's very guarded when it comes to the matters of the heart. Lucky for her Mark has a compassionate heart. Now this book delivers on the heat. Mark and Vivienne have a ton of chemistry that burns up the page, but hose are the sweetest moments between them as well. This book may bring the heat, but it also packs a punch with the feels. The epilogues in this one made my heart so happy. I'm left with a huge smile on my face when I finished this one. I love Vivienne and Karrie's friendship. That's a friendship anyone would want because you know each other has your back no matter what. I gobbled up this book rather quickly and it was hard for me to put down. I mean who has to eat when you have to know what comes next for Vivienne and Mark? I wold highly recommend this book!

This Is Love is EXACTLY what I was anticipating for one of my FAVE NM heroines! Vivienne (Vivi) is hilariously inappropriate...and has a huge heart...and I ADORE her, she's my spirit animal in human form! As for Mark? You know what they say about the strong, silent types? Yeah....multiply THAT by a thousand and you have ALPHA-Markos! Yes, please!! *sigh* Natasha Madison has pretty much perfected the "make you fall in love, laugh your a@@ off, cause multiple pantie changes, rip your heart out while SHE laughs her a@@ off, but in the end she puts it alllllll back together with a HEA that melts your heart" The banter between besties Vivi and Karrie is absolutely HILARIOUS (you can read her and Matthew's love story in Something So Perfect...YUM!)!!! And, of course, the on-going hilarity between all the characters is LIFE!!! I LOVE THIS SERIES, but I especially love THIS BOOK!!! I knew Vivienne's story would be unforgettable, and Ms. Madison nailed it!!! I can't recommend this one highly enough!!!

This Is Love will capture your heart! I love how the male in this story takes on the typical view of a female - wanting to settle down and fall in love, finding "the one" and happily ever afters. I've absolutely loved every book in this series, and this addition was by far my favorite so far! Witty, romantic, funny and an all-around amazing story.

This is Love is the most amazing story about Vivienne and Mark! It's so entertaining, so enjoyable that I couldn't put it down! Each book in this series just gets better and better and this one is definitely one of my absolute favorites! I loved Vivienne, especially when with her best friend Karrie. Those two are hilarious when tipsy but also such incredible support for each other. I laughed a lot but I also felt for them as they go through certain moments. I have to say Mark is the most swoonworthy private man and has such stamina. OMG yes this book had a heat factor so high if I had read this in paperback form the pages may have been on fire. Talk about needing a cold shower. In all seriousness, the dynamic of the family and friends in this beautiful story is so amazing, you can't help but want to be part of the madness, it would make life so much fun!!! A definite must read!

Oh, get ready to swoon! Mark is something else. This book has a lot more sexual content than the previous books in the series, but if you've read them, you know Vivienne and won't be surprised. ;) She's against relationships but he doesn't do casual, and both think this thing between them is just what they were looking for. But sparks fly (and not in a good way) once they realize how wrong they've been. This book is filled with humor. The characters are just perfect. Mark is the ideal book boyfriend, and Vivienne is a riot and is that girl you'd love to be best friends with. He is a rock solid type of man. Private, smart, doesn't play games. She rarely gets embarrassed and speaks her mind, and is aware of her sexuality (and not afraid to share it.) As I mentioned, this is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. The timeline takes place at the same time as the previous book (This is Wild) so if you have read that book, you will notice some of the same events, but from another POV. The side characters bring in some additional laughs. It's a well written story. Hard to put down. Easy to read. Alternates between POVs. There is an over abundance of sexual content, suitable for mature readers. (It's not overly graphic, but it's there.) *I received an ARC of this book.

This is the third book in this series and whilst I think they would be better read in order, this book can actually be read on a stand alone basis. I've been really looking forward to Vivienne's story and I was so not disappointed. I absolutely loved her. Vivienne literally killed me at times; her unintentional humor is priceless and had me laughing out loud. Private Mark was absolutely perfect for Vivienne. He was sweet, sexy and charming and the way he chipped away at Vivienne's armor was so swoony. I really enjoyed this book and devoured it in one sitting; a definite recommendation from me!

Vivienne and Mark, they had a spark from the start, but Vivienne avoids those, so it took two years, and a chance meeting, to get this party started! Once it did start though, it was electric, consuming, and off the metre sexy, with some unbelievable sweetness on both their parts. They had fun, were fun, and under everyone’s radar. They felt deep, it felt right, and it made them happy. Then it happened, the label. Then it happened, the truth. Then it happened, the hurt. Life doesn’t just happen, it is about choices you make, so they both made some choices, and they were hard for them, but they did it. Then they could have those happy moments, forever This romantic comedy had some great funny moments, mostly thanks to Vivienne, and her bestie Kerrie. The story had some truly romantic moments, thanks to Mark and his dedication to Vivienne, and his family. This happily ever after in the making had some scorching hot times, thanks entirely to Mark and Vivienne, and the sparks that they give off whenever the other is near!

When the love bug bites, just scratch it. This Is Love is the third on the ‘Love Is’ series by Natasha Madison. I liked this story a lot, maybe not as much as the previous two but we can’t always love all the books. Vivienne and Markos were great characters, they were pretty perfect together even though Markos was a ‘relationship’ kinda guy and a very private one at that. Vivienne is as you know (if you’ve read the other two books, or the Something series), a wild, take the bull by the horns serial dater. She hooks up, she has her fun and then she’s off. She doesn’t see them again, she doesn’t hug, she doesn’t sleep over and well… you get the picture. She’s completely wrong for Mark, but he fell for her when they first met two years ago. He’s been waiting for his chance ever since and when it happens he’s ready to give it his all. This is a very hot and steamy story, Markos and Vivenne know how to burn up the sheets and several other surfaces too. Their chemistry is undeniable and off the charts hot, but Vivenne’s persistent vow to not be in a relationship while spending all her time with Markos started to frustrate me a little. She’s a grown woman and should have been aware of what was happening. Still, that’s my only gripe and it all sorted itself in the end. If you’re in the mood for a steamy sports romance then One-Click this today.

This Is Love is the third book in the This Is series, and while I highly recommend all three books they can each be read as a standalone. I have been looking forward to Vivienne's story since I first met her in This Is Crazy (she was introduced in the Something So series, however, I haven't read those - yet!) and knew it would be amazing. She is so confident, sassy & speaks whatever is on her mind. She has zero filter, and the things that come out of her mouth usually leave me in tears from laughing so hard. So when I read the blurb for this book I was excited to finally find out what was hidden under all her layers, knowing there was way more than meets the eye. Mark was very briefly mentioned in the last book, and the nickname Private Mark is definitely right on the money. He's charming, talented, and gorgeous. And he's had his sights set on Vivienne for years. Now he's determined to make her his, no matter how hard he has to fight. "The endgame is that much better if you fight for it" I loved these two and was hooked me from the very beginning! Each interaction left me begging for more, and I was truly addicted to their story. I loved how natural they seemed together, their relationship progressing so naturally and full of fun, flirty banter. And the chemistry and steam levels were off the charts! One thing I loved about this story was that the timeline was simultaneous with This Is Wild, so for anyone starting out with this book you won't feel lost or like there are spoilers. It was fun reading parts from Vivienne's point of view, and finally knowing what was going on behind the scenes. I also loved the secondary characters. Mark's relationship with his family is so strong and beautifully written, and Vivienne & Karrie are serious friendship goals. And then there's Elsa, who was the catalyst of so many laughs and swoony moments! I highly recommend This Is Love, and the entire This Is series! I'm excited to go back and read her earlier books, and have my fingers crossed for more of these characters in the future!

So many stars!!! Vivienne's story is everything I hoped it would be and more. It is tres tres magnifique! She is so sassy on the outside with a vulnerability I had know idea lived within her. Natasha Madison has outdone herself if that's even possible! I have loved this French vixen throughout this series but now I have a total girl crush on her. And can we talk about Mark, or should I say PM, oooo la la. He is so totally swoonworthy and irresistible!!!! They both realize that they can have everything they never knew they wanted and what a journey of discovery that is for them. Funny, sweet, sassy, emotional, sexy, and so steamy and if that's not enough..............................there's a fish. And not just a fish but a storyline surrounding what is definitely the deeper meaning behind the fish. I absolutely loved everything about this book!!!!!

Where to begin, If you have ever read a Hockey book by this author then you have heard of Vivienne she is Karrie's best friend originally from France. First of all, Everyone was wondering if this large than life, serial one-night stander would ever find just one guy to tame her. Vivi has no filter and is a complete riot she stands out in every book so writing this had to come with so pressure. I can say sans aucun doute Vivienne is still Vivienne throughout the entire book. She had me laughing at her ridiculous over the top dramatic actions, she was just so Vivi. Mark PM Dimitris businessman and Goalie for the New York Stingers, has decided he is done waiting around for Vivienne she has had his number and hasn't called, so he makes a plan, and Vivi has no choice to look at what's right in front of her a take the leap. When the R-word comes out well Vivienne doesn't do relationships. The first chapter really lets into why Vivi is like she is, she has her walls up so much and is so afraid to go down the heartbreak road, Mark was a perfect fit for her He was Alpha all the Way and didn't let her run far. I just loved them together, they were so peaceful and Mark really gave it to poor Vivi, she was in a permeant bow-legged state every time they got together. I also just freaking Loved Vivi and Karrie's relationship it was a true la sororité. Now to wait to be blown away but whatever comes next. à la perfection
