Because I Love You by Jeannie Moon is the first book that I have read from this author and I found myself enjoying this quick charming and sweet read. Though this book can be read as a standalone, I did find myself wishing I read the previous books of the series since there were characters from previous books of the series that reappeared in this book and played somewhat an integral part of the story of Tristan Ward and Leah Bayard.

First I want to say I started to read this book knowing nothing about this series not having read the previous 5 books in the series.

This is a story about Tristan Ward a sexy Brit who has just been hired by Reliance Software as their new CFO – he is good friends with the team who started the company and was brought on because one of the founding members Nate Baynard is leaving to go pursue other things. Tristan has never been in any type o

This was my first book by Moon and although I enjoyed the characters and the different storyline I still felt a little lost while I was reading it. I'm sure it could be a standalone but I suggest reading the previous books to get a better feel for the characters. I wish I had done this before I started but this book did make me want to start at the beginning.

Leah is an attorney and loves her job. She doesn't have time for dating but there is something about Tristan that pulls her in. These two

Awesome read!! Jeannie Moon brings us another well crafted story with a strong independent female lead character and a sexy, powerful, and slightly troubled male lead.

Leah learned the hard way that work and relationships don't mix. So now she's completely focused on her career with no time for anything else. When she meets Tristan Ward, Reliance Software's new CFO, and sparks fly she decides that maybe she has time for a little fun. No strings type of fun only! When things start heating up and

And so the series ends!

I chose this rating because I found each book interesting from beginning to end. I liked each storyline and suddenly a new surprise turn in the plot had to be solved and I was "hooked" again and couldn't put the book down. I plan to read more of your books. I want to discover if all of your work will keep my attention or if I suddenly remember I should do my housework! Thanks for sharing your talents with me.

This is the 6th book in the "A Forever Love Story" series.

I was in a book stupor, and I truly needed to read a story with the perfect balance of plot, character development and sexy times. I found that combination with Because I Love You by Jeannie Moon. With the exception of about seven hours of sleep, I did not put this book down. Yes, it was just too good to walk away from.

Jeannie Moon's Forever Love series is one of my all-time favorites and the sixth book, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, was just as wonderful as the first five.

Nate's fiery, red-headed sister has a soft heart that's been broken once already, so she hides behind her quick temper and hard shell.

I started Because I Love You without realizing it was part of a larger series. Although it wasn’t too difficult to read this as a stand-alone, I wonder if I may have enjoyed it more if I had read the entire series. The characters may have been more endearing and there may have been a deeper connection for me as a reader. Nonetheless, this was a charming and sweet story. There were times the story was more engaging than others and some of the conflicts seemed to appear out of nowhere, but overall ...more

The characters in this book were fascinating, flawed, redeemable and likable. This book was so addicting that I was late for work one day because I kept saying, "Just one more page. Just one more page." I finished the book within two days. Every time I was in the car for more than 10 minutes within those two days, I had my text to speech playing so I wouldn't begrudge my time driving instead of reading.

I didn't have to spend a lot of time editing this author's work which was nice. The story was

All Leah wanted from Tristan is to be friends with benefits. Both are very career driven and Leah had been burned before and did not want that to happen again. The chemistry between these two are sizzling off the pages. Leah was very strong professionally but was broken emotionally, loved how Tristan was the man for her, if only Leah can see that. They have secrets from their past, and can they move forward with their relationship.

Loved the epilogue, a nice tie up to the series. Even though I

This is the 6th and last book in Jeannie Moon's Forever Love series. Because I Love You can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the series from the beginning - "knowing" the secondary characters, as well as the introduction to Tristan and Leah in previous books adds much to the experience. Tristan and Leah have loads of chemistry - they find their plans to remain just friends and then friends with benefits don't work out too well as they each realize they're falling for the o ...more

I loved this book. Leah was such a strong heroine, almost making it a fault. She is dealing with past ghosts, and it seems to interfere with her relationships. I freaking loved Tristan's character. He is a take charge kinda guy, who will do anything for the ones he loves. I loved most of the secondary characters throughout the story, and there's one who I'm sort of wanting a story on, but the girl definitely needs an attitude change (although I am sure if any author can redeem a character, Jeann ...more

Good book.. Great characters. I've read everyone of Jeannie's books and I love them. They are re-reads for me, and it does help to read them in order, even though each are standalones...just so you know the characters as they appear. I liked it until near the end. I felt it moved too fast, and some of the main issues really did not get resolved., which I cannot say without giving away some of the ending. Maybe if the book was a little longer we could have delved into some of the main issues that ...more

Jeannie Moon never fails to give you stories that make you fall in love. Because I Love You will draw you in so completely that you feel every emotion the characters go through.

Dealing with a heartbreak Leah built a wall around her heart that affects those around her.

Jeannie Moon is an auto-read for me. I've been in a bit of a rut reading wise and I needed to read an author I can count on for a solid read.

I wasn't really sure how I'd feel about Leah, she was rather hard to like previously. However, I didn't have any problem liking her in this book. Tristan was easy like too and I liked the two of them together very much.

Overall, this was a fun read. I'm left wondering if Tristan's hunky brother and or his sweet assistant Robyn will get stories.

A wonderful story! Leah and Tristan have a "friends with benefits" relationship. When Tristan wants more, Leah retreats. As Tristan proves they can have a love for a lifetime, he must not only win Leah's heart and trust, he must show her family and a family business he is worthy. Leah learns to overcome her past and face her fears, and to fight for Tristan. A lovely romance in the series which works as a standalone.

Most amazing stories, Leah and Tris, met at Leah's family and Tris's business associates get together, what a chaotic get together! They were stubborn to the core, the attraction is there, can they get past all their hang ups, past bad memories, Leah was determined to keep everything as just friends!!! Beautiful story, and amazing series-a must read
