From the best selling series, Something So
comes the spin-off series This is…
Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it. Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again. He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn’t be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds.
After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms.
When I wasn’t paying attention, my guard slipped.
They call me Private Mark for a reason—my whole life is a secret. For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her … under me. Now that I had her, I wasn’t letting her go. I thought we were on the same page. I thought we were building something great.
Boy, was I ever wrong.
I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.She thought I’d walk away.
She was wrong.
Now it’s time to convince her she wants us too and to show
her that the crazy, wild thing we have … This Is Love.
Vivienne and Markos….At the end of This is Wild, we briefly saw the moment where they came out to their friends about their relationship but this book goes into how we got to that point.
I freaking LOVED this book. Vivienne has been burned – badly – by “love” in the past. Discovering that your boyfriend is married is one thing. When he promises for TWO YEARS that he is leaving his wife but then on your birthday you see him with his PREGNANT wife – well that’s a whole new level of hurt and heart break. Vivienne swears that she will not fall in love again after this. Her life turns into a blog “Life of a Serial Dater” and she is happy and content. For now.
Mark wants the wife, the kids, the picket fence, with a dog and all. He wants that with Vivienne. He’s been interested in her for some time but was never really able to get her to give him the chance. Once he has his in, he is operating under the assumption that they are in a relationship and doing well. Imagine his shock when Vivienne reverts to her old ways of relationship phobia…
I loved seeing Mark’s ways of showing Vivienne that she was in love and that she was in a relationship with him. Breaking her walls down to let him into her heart once and for all.
As always, it was great to see past characters as well!
