This Is Love is absolute perfection and is a story that is sure to capture your heart and leave you with all the feels.
From the moment I dove into Vivienne and Mark’s story, I was hooked. We see Vivienne not only get her heart broken, but her soul crushed. It’s that moment that changes her life forever. Her walls are sky high and no man is ever going to break through them. All is going to plan until she meets Mark. Even though Vivienne might not want to acknowlege it, Mark is a total game changer. He makes her feel things that terrify her and as much as she knows she should stay away, she can’t deny the pull she feels towards Mark…..When it comes to his life, they don’t call him Private Mark for nothing. Mark loves what he does, but when it comes to his personal life, all bets are off; that is the one thing he likes to keep just for himself. For the past couple of years, Mark has wanted nothing more than Vivienne. The pull between the two of them is just intense. Their chemistry is off the walls. But, for whatever reason, the timing was just off. So, when fate pushes Vivienne and Mark together again, all bets are off. Mark is determined to win Vivienne over if it’s the last thing he is ever going to do…..
This Is Love is all of that and a bag of chips. This story sucks you in from the very first page and holds you captive right until the very end. The characters are real and perfectly flawed. Vivienne is wounded and afraid to let any man get close to her. Mark is everything that should send her running, but instead is everything she’s ever wanted….if only she could take the leap. And Mark!!! Mark has such patience and determination. He’s got his heart set on Vivienne and isn’t about to go down without a fight. Sure, there are moments when it looks like all hope will be lost, but in the end, Mark shows that the love he has for Vivienne is the kind that is meant to last a lifetime. Anything worth having is worth all the obsticales along the way. And I for one could not help but root for Vivienne and Mark to get their happily ever after.
This Is Love was everything I have been looking for in romance, but never knew I needed. It had amazing characters and a captivating plot. It had heartbreak and romance. It steam and frustration. It had excellent push and pull & undenialbe chemistry. Yes, there was some angst. Yes, there was some drama. But, it was the perfect balance of all the things I want in a good love story and I just couldn’t get enough. Wild horses could not stop me from devouring this book and I just never wanted it to end. I fell head over heels for This Is Love and had the best time getting lost in Mark and Vivienne’s story…..
