Review of ‘Falling for Love’ by Addison M Conley

‘Falling for Love’ is a beautiful, emotional, surprising and uplifting love story that had me totally gripped. Restauranteur Jordan May have a successful business but she is hiding so much of herself that it is emotionally crippling her. Firmly in the closet and approaching her 40th birthday she has yet to find the courage to come out to her family and the conservative community it’s she lives in. Meeting Emmy Russo makes her reassess, but will she go far enough for out and proud Emmy?

The story is about coming to terms about who you are, but there was so much more. It went in directions I did not expect at all and had layers that caught me unawares. The romance was intense and very sexy but ultimately it was the love between the two main characters that had me shedding tears of joy. I loved it.

Review of ‘Just For Show’ by Jae

‘Just For Show’ is a Fake Girlfriend story so impeccably written and with such depth of emotion that I can see me re-reading it again and again. The storytelling appears effortless and flows so well. I wish I knew Jae’s secret! She manages to write such believable and sympathetic characters that draw us into their world so completely.

Psychologist Claire is trying to get her book on relationships published and needs to convince her prospective publisher that she is madly in love with her fiancée. The problem is she has just broken up with her fiancée and needs a new one quickly. Hiring an actress to play the part seems like the solution. Lana is the complete opposite of OCD Claire and how they deal with living together and convincing others they are in love is just perfect. Of course there is a whole lot more to Claire’s OCD behaviour and to Lana’s particular issues. These are dealt with in a caring and understanding way. I almost jumped for joy at the inclusion of Jill and Crash from ‘Just Physical’ and Laleh and Hope from ‘Heart Trouble’. Yet again Jae has penned a winner and had me swooning.
