“As a blogger I read a lot of books, but I can honestly say that I have never read a more compelling and beautiful story than this one. This is one book you don’t want to miss! To say it is fantastic is a gross understatement!!” Amazeballs Book Addicts
I’m going to fully admit here and now that the contemporary romance genre is not my favorite. Yes, I like it. No, it’s not my favorite. Most of the books I find are either too sappy or the characters spend more time in bed than out and it just bugs me. But that’s not the way it is with The Strength of Love by G. L. Ross. This book actually has substance and the characters don’t spend more time in than out of bed.
We all know that tragedy strikes the best of us and that it sucks. But what happens when it strikes not once but multiple times? That’s what this story is about. How even when tragedy can’t seem to leave someone alone, love is strong enough to help you get through the worst of times. The book is extremely well written and while the characters aren’t as developed as they could be, they don’t really need to be in order to enjoy this book. Sometimes, you just don’t want the characters to be to deep, you know what I mean?
I loved this book and I can’t wait to read more. Honestly – I’d love a bit more story behind Courtney & Sam..hint hint! If you like contemporary romance or are looking for a introduction into it, I highly recommend The Strength of Love.
I received a copy of this book from The Killion Group & G. L. Ross in exchange for my honest opinion. All views expressed are 100% my own.
