I can't tell you all how amazing this book is. It's almost impossible to articulate into words. This mad, mad love between the beautiful Ryan and Julia is turned up ten-fold in this third and final instalment, but with a twist that will knock you sideways. Kahlen has hit the ball out of the literary park with 'A Love Like This.' You will experience every poignant emotion from unyielding love and devotion, to total desolation, frustration and…heartbreak, so profound, so palpable it will leave you ...more

We have come to the conclusion of this epic love story of Julia and Ryan.

"The love between us was too much and yet… not enough. If we died drowning in each other’s arms, it would never be enough."

We witnessed the great friendship they had which blossomed into a Mad Mad Love which was then tested to the limits when Julia was in the accident and lost her memory.

But a love so mad can never be forgotten and Julia slowly recovered and fell in love with Ryan all over again..

Now back in New York City

4 This Mad, Mad Love Stars

When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you, yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you, believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
~From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran

This is the 3rd book in The Remembrance Trilogy. It's the continued love story of Ryan and Julia. A little recap since i didn't write reviews for Books 1 & 2. Julia and Ryan meet in college and become best friends. Fast forward 4 years and they finally start dating, BUT it's a long distance relationship as Ryan goes off to medical school in Boston where he's studying to be an ER doctor and

The series finale has Julia and Ryan finding time in their hectic schedule for time for one another. But that's not all, a new friendship with Ryan's colleague gets in the way.

I thought the first half of this book was much like the first book, very sweet and lots of 'I love you's.' Then, the second half kicked in, it was heart wrenchingly torture. I was in tears. The epilogue... So so beautiful!!! I think Kahlen did an amazing job with this trilogy. Her writing is beautiful and I can feel so muc

I wish I could write this big wonderful review to express how much I love this book. But words fail me. This trilogy is my absolute favorite. And I have been dying to read the final book. Once I got my hands on it, I could't put it down. In my opinion A Love Like This, is the BEST of all three books.

Ryan and Julia have been through so much in the 8+ years they have been together. I thought their trials were over but they were only beginning. Will their love get them through? How will they cope?

An amazing conclusion to Kahlen Aymes’ unforgettable “Remembrance Trilogy.” When their story wasn’t ripping your heart out piece-by-piece, it was filling it to the point of bursting with so much unconditional loving emotion. Yep, all the elements for a perfect romance can be found in each and every book in this trilogy. And in the end, the author doesn’t disappoint when she gives Julia, Ryan, and their fans this off-the-chart mad, mad love finale with an awe-inspi

“Why does it feel like I never see you?”

Married life hasn’t changed much for Ryan and Julia. He’s completed school but works hellish hours for his residency while Julia’s job has become more demanding leaving them with little time together. Even with the difficulties of their professions, they make the effort to always show their love to one another.

Amazing, fabulous and an awsome conclusion to this trilogy!

Ryan And Julia's relationship is absolutely magical! With every turn of each page, the words and dialogue have you sighing witth a ahhhh, or close to shedding a tear with the sadness and sorrow and the electric emotions flying around these two characters! Ryan remains a fantastic swoon worthy character and Julia is one of the best heroines portrayed by this author, for me anyway!

Often when I read a trilogy that's separated by release dates I have to go back and skim read the previous books, but not with these the writing was so poignant that it etched into my memory.
This book concludes the story of Julia and Ryan and its an emotional roller coaster. For me Kahlens writing is phenomenal I admit that I stole the following phrase from someone else's review but she truly is the master of emotional projection, you feel every emotion that Ryan and Julia go through, the love,

A love like this is the third book in the Remembrance trilogy and a book I've been eagerly waiting for.

Book three starts of more or less where book 2 finished with the troubles of a couple who both have demanding jobs, throw in a a crazy nurse with a crush on Ryan and you've got yourself some drama.

There is a lot of I love you's and hearts and flowers but I couldn't imagine this couple any other way and I'm a little sad to see the end to this love story especially after reading that beautiful e

A fitting ending to a stunningly, beautiful series. I just loved the way Kahlen writes, her depth of emotion holds you, and your heart hostage for the entire book.

Ryan and Julia's life has certainly been tested over their courtship, but their mad, mad love continues to conquer. I hated Jane and how she weedled her way between them...embarrassed we share the name!

I loved every page and especially the epilogue....I will try not to forget them...<3

You know the feeling of anticipation when the final part of a trilogy is released and then it doesn’t live up to that anticipation? Well that cannot be said about the final part of Kahlen Aymes wonderful story. She signed, sealed and delivered it with panache and what an ending.

Ryan and Julia are now married and Ryan is in his first year residency. The hours are demanding and time with each other just doesn’t happen. His working environment is not great and each night brings in another kind of d

“A Love Like This” was amazing. I finished the book in two days; I could not put it down. It picks up right where “Don’t Forget to Remember Me” leaves off. Ryan is doing his residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital and Julia is still working for Vogue. Ryan and Julia’s love is undeniable and seems everlasting but sometimes love just isn’t enough; or is it. Ryan and Julia hasn’t been able to spend a lot of time together and things become complicated when a life altering event happens bringing someone ...more

Ryan & Julia have endured so much!
Finally they're married and no longer separated by a couple hundred miles.
Still they can't catch a break.
Ryan's duties as a first year resident have him working 24 to 48 hour shifts.
Time alone between the two is still so sacred.
8 years together and yet their passion and love for each other grows stronger and knows no bounds!!
I love these two so much.
Kahlen Aymes is wonderfully gifted at writing such an all consuming love story!

OMG!!!! Kahlen has out done herself. This book is FANTASTIC!!!!! I felt ever page as if I was there going through ever moment. I am so honored I got to read the ARC. I don't want to give anything away, but it does show that even in the most perfect relationships there are ups and downs. I was complete at the end and very happy. I love Ryan and Julia. This is a must read. It is truly a beautiful love story.

A Love Like This is the third and final book in The Remembrance Trilogy.

I am absolutely in love with this trilogy! The first two books show the depth of love between
Ryan and Julia. This one is no different. It is all there.

Ms. Aymes makes me feel like I am in the room with them, watching each scene as I read it. I feel everything they feel, the emotions she brings out in you are so deep. During the intimate times between Ryan and Julia I feel like I am intruding on them because it feels so real

A Love Like This by Kahlen Aymes
Review by Hetty

Writing this review is very emotional for me. It is excruciating to come to the edge of such an incredibly romantic adventure.

I didn’t know how I could ever love him more, but with every day that passes, I did. ~Julia

If you have read my reviews for The Future of Our Past and Don’t Forget to Remember Me, you know I am a HUGE Kahlen Aymes fan. Ryan and Julia stole my heart last summer and I have been patiently waiting for the conclusion of their tale.
Jun 01, 2013 Joanne rated it it was amazing
Kahlen Aymes knocked it out of the literary ball park. I can’t spill too many beans here. I just want to shout from the mountains that this final installment was everything I ever needed in a book. I rode the proverbial emotional rollercoaster and it was the best ride of my life. I laughed, cried, sighed and swooned – I got angry, seriously pissed off, then I was happy, sad and heartbroken - and I fear I have a mental condition because it’s not often a book will take you on an emotional journey ...more

**I have tried to mark all spoilers, but I might have missed one or two- beware if you are a spoiler nazi**

This is definitely the best book in the series- more of a plot and KA learned not to use so many "I Love You's." But...Hmm... to be honest I feel a little conflicted. It was good- I loved it when I was reading it, but when I sit down to rethink about certain situations in the book... I just feel like it all could have been avoided, if the H and h just sat down for a real heart to heart wher
