3.5 Loving the One You Should Stars * * * 1/2

What I have discovered about this series is how the author presents real people with real issues... no one is perfect or without flaws...just like in real life. Relatives we have will do things or say things which may strike an unhappy chord... or they may just be the Aunt or Uncle you could do without...Families have so many different dynamics.. it can become difficult to remember who is pissed at who...

There also something which seems to run through these Love Brothe

I received a copy of Coach Love via Book Enthusiast Promotions for an honest review.

I cannot express how excited I was when I received this book! I really enjoy reading sport romances, and after reading Love Garage, I could not wait to get my hands on Coach Love. And it delivered in spades!

Let me tell you THE most fantastic thing about Liz Crowe. When she writes a story, it will always take you by surprise. You think you know, but you have no idea. Every time you think a story plot is going one way, she ma

I wasn't sure what to expect from the series about the Love brothers. They definitely are not easy men to live with and love and the women in their lives also deal in lies and betrayal.

I would expect the sons of a religious family with committed parents to have more respect for themselves and the women in their lives but they tend to cheat and lie pretty easily.

I would have preferred less interactions with others when they are saying how much they love and care for someon

I read the first book in the LOVE series and loved it (no pun intended). This one is ever better. I feel in love with Kieran, he seems so down on his luck and I felt sorry for him. Though he did have his I wanna kill him moments too. this is a great family series and you get a glimpse of all the brothers and know they will all have their own stories is great ..cant wait for the next one

Book 2 in the Love Brothers series. I highly recommend reading book 1 before embarking on Coach Love. This book although based around Kieran Love contains the continuing drama of the Love family, you will get much more background on each character if it is read in the order the series is written.

This is the second brother and peace maker Kieran's book. Always the good boy, the chilled and calm brother, Kieran has found his future hopes and dreams shattered with

WOW I just do not know what to say, Liz sure throw a twist in this book. I never saw that coming. Just goes to show you when you think you know a character you need to think again. I totally loved this book, it is so touching and heartbreaking. Liz puts a twist on her stories that are so unlike anything I have ever read. This poor family just keeps getting hit with more pain than it can take.

I was given this book for my honest review

This is the second book in the Love Brothers Series.

As a young child we were often anticipating the changes of the seasons. The warmth coming in is the slow sign that summer is coming near. The changes of the leaves we all look forward to fall. The ever loving singing of the birds showed us spring was coming. Let’s not forget the first chill in the air warning that winter would be near.

The old saying that "cheaters never win" does not stand true in COACH LOVE.

Kieran Love has always been the strong Love brother--the good guy, the one people relied on. He's also the athletic star of the family--or he was, before a horrifying career ending injury cut his time in the NBA, drastically short in his rookie season. Now engaged to the bitchy but beautiful Melinda, Kieran finds himself drowning in a pit of self-pity and alcohol and loathing...and drunken lust as he falls back in bed with his ex-gi

In this installment we look at Kieran and begin to delve into Dominic. The ending will tear your heart out. Poor Dominic. The only one who truly truly accepted him was Kieran. Love should be unconditional but for Dominic we see that doesn’t happen.

Kieran’s life is spirally downward. His girlfriend he doesn’t like and he breaks up with, his job is gone and his brother Dominic is in a quagmire. One he wishes he could help with but can’t he can only show love and support. To top it off

I was provided an early reader copy of this book and I know that editing is still in progress. After reading the first book, ‘Love Garage’ and now this second book, I am truly invested in the characters.

Liz Crowe has a tremendous talent with character development and she is able to make the reader love/hate the characters, feel the love, loss, sadness, happiness, and realistic issues on life decisions that people have to deal with so often.

I love this story of 4 brothers and a ‘baby’ sister, a

Love Garage was a little rough around the edges, but Coach Love definitely brought it's A-game. I enjoyed this one the most out of books 1-3, even though the whole cheating theme was still very much present. I felt like Ms. Crowe brought more than enough to the table to compensate and I found myself completely invested in this story and curious about the direction it was going in. There is definitely no shortage of drama, love, lust, an

This is the second in the love Brothers series, and I leaped into it with both feet. This book brings us the story of Kieran, the star athlete of the family until an injury removes him from basketball permanently. He returns to the family fold and a job he enjoys, but life throws him more than his share of curveballs. His fiancée, Melinda, is every bit the bitch that Dottie from my books is, except that, unlike Dottie, Melinda doesn’t have mental illness to fall back on as an excuse. She’s just ...more

The romantic twists and turns of another Love brother are on dramatic display in this second installment in this series. Kieran's life seemed to be going so well in high school until he was painfully dumped by his true love Cara. His cycle of pain continued when a career-ending sports injury occurred which drove him back home leaving him a lost soul. Just when he finally seems to have gotten his life back together with a new love he's reunited with his old love which leads to some painful decisi ...more

Have you ever been in a toxic relationship well meet Kieran Love, ex-pro basketball player forced to retire due to injury and his high powered lawyer fiancé, Melinda.

The author really created a hands down not nice character in Melinda that both men and women can relate to. Ms. Crowe wrote her as being very strong and at the same time weak. And though I personally didn’t like Melinda I did feel her bitchy character added to the story by creating lots of conflict and interesting moments. ...more

I lived reading ?Coach Love (The Love Brothers Book 2), all about Kieran Love the ex-basketball star & Cara his ex-girlfriend turned physical therapist. Every week for the last year Cara has been treating Kieran's shattered knee problem with intense therapy. But according to her it would never heal properly if he continued attending family basket ball pick-up time every Sunday!

Well I am so torn with this story. So much happened in it that at times it took me a minute to catch up with what was happening between them all. There were so many characters with heir own story on the go that it wasn't an easy read by any means. That donut mean it wasn't a good story! I did enjoy it, even if I did want to take a few of the characters and smack them upside the head for being so freaking stupid. A few times I felt that the story went towards

These Love brothers all know who they want and don't stop until they get them!

Liz, once again, did a fantastic job of writing a believable (and HOT) story while expertly crafting an ending that I NEVER would have expected! That's one of the things I really like about her writing style; just when you think the story is going to go down the "typical contemporary romance" path, the book ventures off in the opposite direction.

Those Love Brothers have a way with women. Kieran returns to his small town to work as a teacher after an injury sidelines him from his NBA dreams. With a ice cold fiance he can't help seeing the problems between them...and the problems between her and his family.

Kieran is like a lost boy who still misses the dream he had. He wallows in his despair. It takes one instant for a match to be lit around him, turning him into a stranger. (Yes...I'm trying not to give spoilers). But like any temptatio

I actually listened to the audible version of this book and, it was great! I admit that the narrator wasn't always perfect for every part but, he did a fine job.

I LOVE reading more about this family, all the Love brothers and their parents. They aren't perfect, they're real and flawed. Gritty and messy like families in real life tend to be. These books aren't just about the romance, they're also about strong family ties.

Oh my goodness! I adored this story...even though yet again there was quite a bit of cheating involved...seriously people...can anyone in this town be faithful while dating?!?

The romance in Coach Love was sweet and sigh worthy. I saw some of the twists coming...but it didn't ruin it in any way. The flow of the story and the development of the story was nothing short of perfect! By the end I had laughed and cried, yelled and grunted so much that I just didn't know what I felt anymore!

In the latest installment featuring the hot Love brothers, author Liz Crowe turns her sights on Kieran.

Coach Love earns high marks not only for the ease in which the author continues the Love family storyline, but with the pairing of Kieran and Cara. Packed with plenty of panty-melting scorching scenes, this is one story that earns a spot on the keeper shelf for the completely unexpected plot twist.

Yet again Liz Crowe has given us a flawed male character that I haven't overly liked at the beginning, but she has managed to make me like the arrogant, scarred Kieren by the end.

This seems to be a reoccurring fad for this series. Her characters are far from perfect and even if you don't agree with some of their characteristics, she makes you get over that with her well written POV from the male’s perspective.
