Doing It for Love by Cassie Mae is a sweet, fun and light hearted book that kept me engaged and entertained all the way through.

Most romance books we read start with a couple who meet and fall in love. But what about the couples that are already in love? Lizzie and Landon have been together for a few years. They’re living together, and even though it’s a struggle at times, they’re happy. But Lizzie wants more. She wants that butterfly feeling she used to get, she wants the spicier

Together for a while Liz and Landon are not in the “fiery” phase of their relationship anymore, they are settled, living together and happy with each other. But Liz believes that their sparkle died a little bit and their sex life is now “peas and carrots” when it should be strawberries and whipped cream. So when Landon proposes and they get engaged she has the perfect idea: no sex during the five months until their wedding, to make their wedding night amazing. The one who gives

It’s funny, for so long I wanted to know the story after the happy ending. What happens to the couple once they find each other, consummate their relationship, and get past their demons? Now that I’m in that story I get why no one talks about it.

Doing It for Love is the story of Liz and Landon, but really it could be about any newly engaged couple. You know what I mean; attractive, young and been together for a while and even though they’re head over heels in love wi

I've tried reading Cassie Mae's YA books in the past but none of them worked for me until this book came along. I saw this on Netgalley, read the blurb, and fell for it hook, line and sinker from then on.

Books usually just tell us the "...and they lived happily ever after" part in the life of a couple. Usually it sucks because, duh, OTP I NEED MORE. What happens after that? Do they just get married and make babies?

If you've ever wondered what comes after an HEA, what makes relationships cement after all the love and feelings have been explored, then this is the book you want to read. Cassie Mae does an amazing - and adorable- job of painting a realistic story of life after love, life in love. The book is very real, with down to earth everyday characters you can relate with. If you're already in a relationship, this book will make you smile and (double) squeeze your partner. If you're single, this book wil ...more
I LOVE this book! This story starts out with Liz and Landon getting engaged. To celebrate their engagement, they have sex but it's only mediocre. After being together for 4 years, Liz feels like their sex life should be a little more exciting so she forms a plan. Her and Landon will abstain for sex for the next couple months leading up to the wedding to bring the passion back to their sex life. Landon thinks there's no way Liz will be able to stick to her plan so he makes it more interesting by ...more

So you lusted, you fell in love and you found your happily ever after, what now? Well we’re about to find out as we take the journey with Liz and Landon!

As these two struggle with the day to day survival one thing becomes clear. Their sexual spark has dwindled a bit due to the late hours, the hard work and just life getting in the way.

This is my first book from the author and I honestly have no idea what to expect in terms of writing style. But I loved the cover and the blurb intrigued me. It's the type of books that would usually work for me. Unfortunately, I didn't really enjoy this one.

At first, it was great. I totally get where Elizabeth is coming from. She's been together with her boyfriend for a long time and now that they're getting married, they seem to just be cruising along. In trying to recapture the "sp

How do I feel about this book? Well, first off Liz was really really annoying to me. I didn't understand the whole bet thing with no sex until the wedding night just to build the need. It was a bit dramatic and unnecessary. Doesn't Liz know that holding out on a guy for months will only make him not last long? I really enjoyed reading The Real Thing but this was just not my cuppa tea, which is very disappointing. I really liked Landon and I think that's the only reason why I kept on reading. I d

If you're anything like me, then at one point after finishing a romance novel, you've often wondered what life is like for the couple after that HEA. Cassie Mae explores exactly that in Doing It for Love. I didn't exactly know what to expect when I went into the book, but it surprised me with just how delightful and romantic it was. Landon and Lizzie were at that point in their relationship where their bedroom life wasn't as sizzling as it was in the beginning. When Landon proposes, Lizzie comes

This review is going to be slightly different than my usual thing, because this book just inspires this type of feedback.

I honestly want more stories just like this in literature; 

Stories that make you smile so widely and so often your cheeks hurt, but in the best way possible. The kind of way you don't care because dammit, I really needed this. The kind of smiles that linger for entire scenes. That make your entire face scrunch up.

Primer libro que leo de esta autora y quedé encantada. Leería más de ella en un futuro.
A todas nos gusta leer historias románticas, pero ¿que sucede despues de ese ultimo capitulo? Aquí Cassie nos da un vistazo de como es la vida de Lizzie y Landon, una pareja que ha estado junta por años, recién comprometida, que busca que no desaparezca ese chispa que hay al comienzo de cada relación.

Hmmm. At first I thought "this was made for me" just because I'm about to get married too. LOL. But honestly, it was so horrifyingly similar to what I was feeling. So one would say, why just 3 stars though? Eh. I think some of Liz actions were a TAD much. She's a bit immature, I guess because of her age? Twenty two? But I'm just two years or three years older and I'm immature in some ways too. LOL.

I can't really explain it. There were some MEH moments other times like the 'honeymoon' part had me

Rating: 5 Stars *****



If there’s one thing I know I’m guaranteed when I pick up a Cassie Mae book, it’s that I will need to take breaks while reading from the sheer loss of breath I experience from laughing too hard.

Whether it be a novel written in the YA realm, or one such as this one that branches into the New Adult, the response is always
4-1/2 stars.

This book, ya'll. I loved it!

You know how you always want more after you finish pretty much every romance book ever? You want to know what happens after the couple is together, you want to know about the wedding and babies and how did they work out that pesky living-on-two-separate-sides-of-the-country issue. At least I do.

Doing It for Love answers that what happens next that we all want to know. And it's amazing.

So to be honest, there are some authors, who's books I will just read, without regards to cover.. and .. uhm.. this is kinda embarrassing... the blurb. Mae happens to be one of them. I love her How To Series, so basically knowing this is new adult by Mae... was simply good enough for me to wanna get my hands on it.
I did read the blurb when I requested it... I really did... Promise! I did!

But I’m also thinking I need to hear words before we go anywhere. I need the sorries and the I love yous and I’ll never do this again. And it bugs me that he’s not saying anything.”

I don't know why I even wasted time putting off this book. It was sweet and laughable - many moments made me genuinely laugh out loud. The author is one I've read before and I don't know why I would've expected less - the first novel I read by this author was Switched. It was just as funny as this one - I may've enjoyed this more.

So much love for this book, Doing It for Love was such a good read.

Elizabeth Fanning’s life looks pretty perfect, judging by the diamond ring on her finger. Her fiancé, Landon, is sweet, handsome, and hilarious. The trouble is, before they’ve even tied the knot, their sex life has gone from mind-blowing to “meh”—and Liz isn’t ready to be part of an old married couple. After a cathartic call to her best friend, Liz comes up with a brilliant idea. She and Landon may never be

Honestly, I don't even know where to begin with this review. I am without a doubt a Cassie Mae fangirl because she constantly hits me in the gut with her words. But more importantly than that, the first thing that really comes to mind about a Cassie Mae book is that there's so much consistency. Doing it for Love is a continuation of this exact truth. I think it's good to keep in mind that this book is a little unlike her other works as it has a much more adult theme.

Usually, when I read a romance, the two characters meet and fall in love. If was fun for once to read a book where they are already in a steady relationship. They already have a history together and they want to get married. But Lizzie is not satisfied with their sexual life. She wants more and she's scared that because of the marriage they're going to be a boring couple. She wants the "strawberries and whipped cream" relat
