A LOVE LIKE THAT
Release Date: December 2
After my wife died, I never expected to fall in love again, let alone with her much younger sister.
Elle’s too young for me, though.
Too vibrant and cheerful to be saddled with a grumpy widower and two little kids.
Besides, she’s only here for a few months before she moves on to follow her dreams.
And there’s no way we could be together even if she were staying.
It doesn’t seem to matter how often I remind myself of all the reasons why we can’t, or shouldn’t be together, my body won’t listen.
Ever since Elle moved in, all I can think about is her. All I want is her.
She restored order to my home. She got my kids to smile and laugh again. Even I’m smiling more.
For the first time since my wife’s death, I feel alive, hopeful.
I already said goodbye to my childhood sweetheart, my wife, and the mother of my children.
And I know I have to let Elle go; I’m just not sure if I can.
A Love Like That is my first book by Jenna Hartley and certainly won’t be my last. A Love Like That is an emotional, yet unconventional love story that is sure to pull on the heartstrings of its readers.
Ever since Tristan’s wife died, he found himself floundering. No matter how hard he tries, he feels like he’s disappointing everyone, including his children. When his sister-in-law, Elle, steps in, she’s the answer to his prayers in more ways than one. And so begins a journey of hope, second chances, and learning to live again.
A Love Like That checked off so many of my top trope boxes! I’m a sucker for forced proximity and age-gap romances and this one certainly knocked it out of the park. I also quite enjoyed the forbidden factor of this story. I know it’s not for everyone, but it really worked with this story. From the moment you meet Elle & Tristan, you can’t help but connect and root for them. The chemistry between them is intense and just flows off the pages. The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one, there were so many obstacles standing in their way, and I for one couldn’t wait to see how everything came together in the end.
In the end, A Love Like That is a wonderful second-chance romance that will leave you with all the feels. I’m so glad that I’ve discovered this author and look forward to checking out the previous books in this series, asap!
