Overview

Bridal shop owner Meg Halloran spends her days making other women’s wedding dreams come true—and her nights dreaming of her childhood crush, hometown heartthrob Dr. Benjamin Rushford. After a lifetime of wearing her heart on her sleeve, she’s done waiting. Meg’s ready to find love, with or without him. Moving on feels right—until Ben pops an unexpected question.

To win the open ER position in Mirror Lake, Ben has to convince the board that he’s settled and ready to put down roots. His latest stroke of genius? Asking Meg, the local good girl, to be his pretend girlfriend. With her by his side, he’s a shoo-in for the job. But he’s in over his head because, as much as he tries to deny it, Meg tempts him. And if she learns the truth about a secret that has shadowed and shaped his life, will she ever be able to forgive him?

Meg was 26. She had a bridal shop named Bridal Aisle. Megan loved Ben since She was 10, but she was determined to get over him and move on with her life as he barely bothered her now. All the twists and turns that Meg went through to finally be happy were totally awesome as was all Ben went through to finally be free. I loved the characters, as you can tell. The overall story and plot were great. I highly recommend. **I received an ARC of this story in exchange for an honest review

Cute, fun and a little sexy - Ben and Meg's story made me smile, sigh, laugh and even brought a tear to my eye. What starts out as a favor between old childhood friends turns into a once in a lifetime love. However, a tragic event in their past makes it hard for Ben to want a relationship, even though he is in love with Meg. Luckily, he figures out what is really important in life. Their relationship is full funny moments that make this a light read. Can be read as a standalone. I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

I didn’t read This Thing Called Love, the first of the Mirror Lake books, but I don’t think it made that much of a difference because with This Love of Mine we focus on Ben and Meg and their pretend relationship. Of course, like any good romance, it doesn’t stay pretend for very long and Liasson makes sure that it is a lot of fun getting to their HEA. My heart goes out to these two for a lot of reasons. The opening with the elevator, and all of the humorous embarrassment that goes with it, sets the mood for the rest of the book and I totally feel for Meg as she tries to make herself as invisible as possible so Ben doesn’t realize she’s there. She’s been living with a crush on him for years and she’s finally decided to give it up … when she’s guilted into a fake relationship with him. But it’s just for one night, right? Then she can go back to moving on … yeah, that worked. Ben’s been carrying around a lot of guilt since Patrick, his best friend and Meg’s brother, died. So many of his decisions have been because of Patrick, including ignoring his attraction to Meg. Except now that he’s pretending to be in a relationship with her, ignoring her pull on him becomes so very difficult. I really like how his feelings, both for Meg and about Patrick’s death, get resolved. It is handled with care and all of it felt realistic to me. **Begin Spoiler** The HEA ending, though, does feel a little rushed to me. I feel like the wedding was forced a little and that it could have been part of a future story (this is part of a series). I get that it is Ben’s way of making things up to Meg after he screws up yet again, but maybe he could have made about half of his gesture with the same impact. **End Spoiler** Overall though I am very pleased. The characters are believable & interesting and the story is sweet & emotion-packed. I feel like I really knew them when I got to the last word and I’m looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Loved it!! This is a fun small town romance with excellent writing, great pace, and characters that warm your heart. It's the second in a series but easily read standalone. I do recommend you read the first though - great book. Ben Rushford has worked hard his whole life. He's attained his goal of becoming a doctor, now he's ready to come home and work in the local ER. He finds himself in a competition for the job, the only thing he's lacking is a committed relationship. When he comes up with a plan to have a pretend girlfriend, he knows exactly who he wants to ask. Convincing her to go along with him might be a challenge. Not actually falling for her might be harder than that!! Meg Halloran has had a crush on Ben Rushford her whole life. Now that she's ready to really put that behind her, he's back in town looking better than ever. When he approaches her to go along with his plan, she knows she should say no. She really does. Unfortunately, her stupid heart tells her to play along. Nothing can really go wrong, right??? This is one I highly recommend!

This Love of Mine was an endearing story about attractive characters. Miranda Liasson's creation is about not taking anything in life for granted. Especially relationships. The people counted on the most may not always be there. This Love of Mine conveyed that point by examining the love story of Ben and Meg. With likable characters and plenty of feeling Ms. Liasson composed a sweet story of neglect, frustration, heartbreak and love. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Very well put together read.
