It was supposed to be the happiest day of her life, but when her fiance leaves her at the alter, Parker walks right out the door … and straight into traffic. Thank goodness Liam, a good-looking stranger with a southern twang, was there with his Jeep. Sure, he wasn’t exactly planning on whisking a woman in a wedding dress off to the emergency room, but Liam feels strangely taken by her—and she might just feel the same way about him. If the two can navigate broken hearts and guarded pasts, they just might turn a chance encounter into a beautiful future.
Aimee Brown is back with another knockout romance. A wedding gone wrong. Chance encounters. Tons of flirting. Competitive mini golf. Truly, Brown has found all the right moments—sometimes tender, sometimes wacky—for an enchanting read.
Parker and Liam are seemingly made for each other. Brown immediately infuses their scenes together with palpable chemistry. There’s a definite connection, even if they’re both hesitant to pursue it, and Brown knows how to deftly build up tension along the way. Both have previous love-related complications that realistically make them cautious about getting serious with someone new. Yet Brown has made it impossible not to root for both of them to find a shared happy ending.
But it’s not all brownies and princess parties.
Brown has no problem exploring serious topics in her books, and her skill for considering complicated topics in a real manner is fully on display here. Some of the side action looks at both mental health and difficult family relationships and these moments are particularly touching. However, the action never becomes too heavy. These characters and their lives, the good and the bad, are fully realized, and Brown knows how to weave in plenty of solid jokes and wickedly funny scenes that feel genuine to their circumstances.
Love Me Like You Do: come for the romance, but stay for the authentic characters, the gorgeous story, and the pure fun.
