love 1

It’s no secret that we all like love scenes in books 😉 A few months ago, I shared with you some of my all time favorite love scenes that you can read in this post (scenes from Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture by Sylvain Reynard, Perfect by Judith McNaught, Don’t Forget To Remember Me by Kahlen Aymes, Fifty Shades Darker by EL James, Bared To You by Sylvia Day). And today I want to show you some other love scenes that I find absolutely beautiful, because of the way they’re written and the feelings they convey.

Hello lovely people!!! Happy Wednesday to all!

What are you reading?

Hmm, so here’s what made me busy this week… Some pic quote teasers from Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover that I have read since the day it has been released. I love Hopeless and there is no way I’m missing a glimpse of what’s in Holder’s head. I really LOVE the story and Holder’s POV is awesome so I decided to do a few more.

Then I found Drew… Monica Murphy’s One Week Girlfriend was a fun superb read. I remember there were only a few more pages left on my Kindle and I was like “No way it’s not gonna end like this.” If book 2 wasn’t out yet I swear I’m gonna flip!LOL I’m glad I read this when Second Chance Boyfriend was already sitting on my Kindle waiting for me. All in all I LOVED IT! I can’t wait for you guys to read it if you haven’t.

Here, check them out. 😉

Elena and Tamie review: Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

Losing Hope

The synopsis:

In the follow-up to Colleen Hoover’s #1 New York Times bestseller Hopeless, the charming and irresistible Dean Holder tells the passionate story that has melted thousands of hearts.

In Hopeless, Sky left no secret unearthed, no feeling unshared, and no memory forgotten, but Holder’s past remained a mystery.

Still haunted by the little girl he let walk away, Holder has spent his entire life searching for her in an attempt to finally rid himself of the crushing guilt he has felt for years. But he could not have anticipated that the moment they reconnect, even greater remorse would overwhelm him…

Sometimes in life, if we wish to move forward, we must first dig deep into our past and make amends. In Losing Hope, bestselling author Colleen Hoover reveals what was going on inside Holder’s head during all those hopeless moments—and whether he can gain the peace he desperately needs
