Even though this is a novella, a lot of emotional ground is covered in a spectacular way. You learn how families can either fall apart, or become stronger in the process of grieving. Shawnte Borris definitely leaned from the Molly McAdams of emotional warfare, lol. Making you fall in love with all the characters, and internalizing their struggles.

The journey starts in a cab coming from who knows where. It feels lik
What I love about this book is its so different than anything out there. A beautiful story about finding love and hope again when you think it's impossible for you. A true love story with depth and feeling.
This book has heart. The main character, Ally is recovering from something devastating and the book carries you back into her past and then to the present where she is trying to begin anew. The characters are loveable and you wish the book were longer so you could get to know them even better. I'm looking forward to more from this author!

I was pleasantly surprised by this debut novella from Shawnte Borris. With Love is a story of heartbreak and learning to live again. Ally is living a more than happy life when a horrific turn of events changes her course. Leaving the life she used to leave far behind her Ally takes a flight and books herself into a hotel. A keen photographer, Ally see a wedding taking place and can't help but take a few pictures of the father and daughter, all of a sudden Ally is faced with brother of the bride ...more
This is a beautifully written story of loss and how you learn to live and love again. While I was reading this it was if I was watching a film in my head I could see the characters and the way it developed to me that's how you know it's a great story when you feel yourself right in the thick of it. Well done Shawnte on your first book looking forward to many more xxxx
This story had me hooked from the begaining. I was rooting for the main characters and even had tears in my eyes some places. I love how much emotion and sweetness was in this book. It was a great Sunday afternoon read, and can't wait to read more from this author.

This book is amazing. It is a quick read but it is still a tear jerker. I recommend reading it if you like romance. Family and of cause a brooding alpha male :)

I was given this book as an ARC to read to give an honest review.

This is Shawnte's debut novel. It is a beautiful story of learning to live and love again after unspeakable tragedy and loss.
Alyson Almon had it all and it was taken away in the blink of an eye. She attempts to pick herself up after only eight months of grieving and try a change in location. She is a photographer and stumbles across a wedding party on the beach outside her hotel room. She is draw
I'd like to say congratulations to Shawnte for writing her first novella. I liked the story.
A beautiful story about loss and learning to love again

loved every minute .. cried many of those minutes
This book is hard to review. I don't know how to put my thoughts into words. This was a quick read. It is also a tearjerker. The subject matter is pretty serious and sad. I had trouble connecting with the characters. This book is supposed to be a love story but the couple really don't interact that much. The books deals with death and the grief that accompanies the death of a family member. I thought the concept of the story was good and this book had potential, but lacked the development that i ...more
This story has potential and with a willing editor, it could be great. I loved the idea behind this book and the love story. However, the book drags and the back and forth between the past and present is really confusing. This is the author's first book so I took that into consideration when I gave it four stars. Again, there is alot of potential in this book, but it needs some professional editing to smooth out the kinks.

The POV was kind of hard to follow it was never consistent. Also, the story wasn't fully developed in my opinion. There wasn't enough interaction between the two main characters for them to fall in love. I think they interacted a total of five times before she decided she loved him. It felt forced. They story was pretty good though.
Rebecca Campeau
I had not expected this book to be a novella. I thought it lacked flow within the story and the narration was beyond confusing. Although, I was surprised at suck strong character development for suck a short read.
Amber Leiby
Must read

I have never cried so much in my life over a book. It's definitely a must read and I hope there is another book for Luke and Ally
Kathy Boone
Wow what an amazing emotional and an ugly cry story about healing and moving forward. You will need a box of tissues. Well done!!
Tara Pruitt
Loved this book!! I would recommend it too anyone looking for a truly heart warming story.
Ashley Galindo
It was a great love story with a happy ending but I wish it was it was longer and more detailed. I would have liked to read more instead of it feeling so rushed.
Amanda Lee
3.5 stars.

Going into this story I new that it was a novella/short story and I was ok with that. I'm sad now though because I feel like there was more that could have happened in the story it could have been a little longer and we could have had more time with all characters of the story which were all very interesting. I loved the story between Luke and Ally but I wished we saw more of them together, and how they help each other heal from their pasts.

Sarah Fitz
This is a quick read but you don't get too much detail and the POV changes quickly. Didn't love it.
