Because I Love you – Book Review.

Two years ago, he took my innocence and ran,
Luckily for me, he’s a slow runner.
He doesn’t know that he gave me the most beautiful gift in the world – my son. 
I’m going to give him a gift too – revenge! 
And if he’s thinking he can get me and my son…
Well, he can go take a walk!

She’s my best friend’s little sister. 
I should never have touched her. 
But I did.
She was hot. She was fun. She was begging me for it.
So I gave it to her… all night long.
I told her I loved her. I promised her the moon and stars. 
I meant every word.
Then I vanished. I couldn’t tell her why. I still can’t.
We haven’t talked since.
But I saw her yesterday. She’s still hot enough to stop traffic,
Even with a kid.
She’s got secrets, but so do I. 
I know she still wants me, but she’s not begging this time.
This time she wants me to beg. 
But I don’t beg. I take. 
And I’m taking Jessi. Secrets and all.


My Review –

This book took me a while to get my head into. I loved the story line, curvy Jessi making a successful career in the modelling industry ( very positive image to put out), and Chris a choreographer, very different to the normal suited business man I read in Romance genre’s.

I loved the empowerment by using a curvy woman for the main character, this is rare I find in the Romance/Erotic genre.
The cover however niggled me. The story brings you a confident curvy mum taking over the modelling industry, yet the cover shows a “normal” sized woman. I wish the author secured a curvy woman to empower other women, and show some diverse covers out there.

Because I love you was definitely steamy, imaginative and juicy. Amy Brent has captured a dramatic, romantic, very saucy novel in one. Once I was about 30% of the way through I was hooked. The revenge plot and karma was well done throughout. The story line never felt rushed and Amy definitely kept me wanting to find out more about Chris.
Jessi was an open book to the reader, but Chris was mysterious not only to me but to the main character Jessi……. Why would he leave her when they were so in love.

The sex scenes are very descriptive and always different. These two characters are on fire consistently throughout.

I became Like Jessi’s friend Megan in the end, I was getting so frustrated that this man he obviously loved didn’t yet know the truth. Proof the author did well.

This was better than a light hearted romance, the complicated relationship made the couples dynamic more realistic. I like some drama in my books and this his the nail on the head.
A must read for all you Romance lovers out there.

I gave this book 4/5 on Goodreads, mainly because I found myself struggling to get into it from the first page. But once I was into the main part of the story I was hooked. I will be looking into more of Amy Brent’s books in the future.

This is my Genre – Book Tag

I was browsing around for a few more tag posts and came across sharing the genre I love best….. The post I enjoyed most was by Callum McLaughlin, so here is my twist for the tag.
Enjoy and please follow and like to show your support.

  • What is your favourite genre?

Anything Romance/Fantasy.

  • Who is your favourite author from that genre?

Nalini Singh long term.    A new fantasy/Romance author I love is Josie Jaffrey.

  • What is it about the genre that keeps pulling you back?

I love getting lost in a world that obviously doesn’t exist.  I am a hopeless romantic so mixing that with a fictional world just drew me in.

  • What is the book that started your love for that genre?

twilight-saga-twilight-series-30543454-1280-720Need I say more.  I read this series WAAYY before it came out as a film.  I was a teenager at the time bored of school and loved how this book helped me get lost into thinking there is more out there in the world…… I used to day dream a lot haha.

  • If you had to recommend at least one book from your favourite genre to a non-reader/someone looking to start reading that genre, what book would you choose and why?  

Angels' Blood (Guild Hunter, #1)

Angels Blood by Nalini Singh.  Angels, vampires and hunters all mixed into one action packed book, mixed with strong characters.

This series will suck you into a world where everyone knows supernatural people exist.

I have done so many reviews on this series, and new books keep coming out, always about a different character in the book but following the story line.

  • Why do you read?

I love how an author can get lost in a fictional world and write so well that you fall in love with the characters also, and forget about the world we live in.
I have always loved reading since I was little, my mum said I used to lock myself in my room and dive into a book, my escape from reality.  And that still carries on til today.  I may not read as much lately as life gets busier the older you get, but I always love to get lost between the pages.
