A great read on so many levels!

This is a very well written story and was a great read. Beth & Aidan have a one of a kind love that really shines in this book. Their love is sweet & kind yet they have heat & passion that is all consuming. Don't be fooled though this book is not all romance & flowers! Of course there are people trying to break them apart and there is also some unimaginable events that take place. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a terrific story

I really enjoyed this book. Well written, sexy, romantic, complex, this is not your usual love story. Told from both Beth and Aidan's point of view, I enjoyed the back and forth, not knowing the outcome and whether their love would survive the challenges facing them. I look forward to more books by this author.

Beth and Aidan's story is a sweet love story that you can grab onto and hold in your heart. Young love torn apart by tragedy that at their young age in life they don't fully comprehend. Circumstances separated them. Both seem to have headed in happier directions, but a meeting between the two childhood loves reveals all is not what it seemed. When Beth and Aidan reconnect, they connect on all levels and is a truly warming story. Lora Ann has written a story that has you standing up and cheering ...more

Beware this story may contain triggers if you have suffered from physical and emotional abuse.

I enjoyed this story of beth and Aiden eventually finding true love. They had known each other as children into their teens, they then lost touch. Move on a few years later, and Beth has come out of an abusive 6 year marriage of extreams unimaginale, that one person could do to another.
When they do eventually get together all seems to be going well, untill Beth's ex turns up. In parts I found Beth to be

Recommends it for: anyone who loves a happily ever after, romance, true love
As I Love You by Lora Ann is one incredible romance that will take your emotions on the rollercoaster ride of your life! I absolutely loved this story!! I will be honest and say that I was already crying by chapter 2.

Aiden and Beth are childhood friends. Sadly life’s issues take over and they become separated. Fast forward to adulthood and they meet each other once again after both leading very different lives. Beth is a woman who is overcoming her troubled past and Aiden is a small town boy tu

What a wonderful steamy heart throbbing book. I fell in love with Aiden & Beth’s story and found myself rooting for them both from the very beginning. This book has so many good qualities that it’s hard to list them all but my favorite is the panty melting chemistry between the two characters you just know they belong together. Unfortunately there are other factors involved and life is never simple. Being torn apart as young kids will they find their way back to each other. Is there such a thing ...more

As I love you

Amazing, wonderful, beautiful and pretty intense. I know there are men and women who were and are assaulted everyday and or are and have struggled with abuse either physically, emotionally and or both and that's not tolerated or accepted. I for one have gone through that and came out stronger and better so I know there are people and places that could help.

This was an amazing and such a wonderful read.

Thanks, hengy etebar

Incredible book, this is a love, abuse band suspense story.
There are a lot of hot scenes and the characters are sublime.
Some scenes are stomach aching and “ I don’t mean that they are bad “, but in meaning of violence. The writer did her homework I highly recommend this book.

Lora Ann As I love You bannerb&W with ipad 5.18.17


First off I want to say is there may be some triggers of domestic violence in this book.  Lora Ann doesn’t glorify these triggers and it is all about the story.  And, there is a HEA at the end of this book.

Lora Ann is bringing this book back out under a different title and put a new cover on the book.  As I Love You was formerly The Stevens Place.

As I Love You is a very moving story.  While it does have a Happily Ever Ending there are some quite emotional parts.  Aidan Kellum first met Beth

This book was definitely different from the other books I've read by this author. Her other books have been darker, and sexier. This book is more romance than erotic romance, although it does have some sexy scenes in it! It's mostly a story about young love, and second chances. It's sweet, and sexy, and suspenseful.

It's a story of two young teenagers in love, who are separated by circumstances outside of their control. They grow up and move on, but neither ever forgot the other. Then one days,

A homeschooling mom by day and hot, steamy romance writer by night, there isn’t an adventure Lora Ann doesn’t mind taking.

The love of travel led her to the career of an international flight attendant as a young adult. And she still loves to travel, although her “wings” are now retired. Spending time with her sons, friends, hiking, and disappearing into the realm of all things possible, are just a
