I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from

Beck is my favorite Harper Sloan book. John Beckett made that book, and knowing Bleeding Love is a book about his son, Liam Beckett, I couldn't wait to start it. The minute it was on my kindle I jumped right in. And it didn’t disappoint. I loved it almost as much as Beck. In fact, it might be tied as my favorite now!

“A love worth having, is worth fighting for.”

That was sweet. Harper Sloan has once more proven she is an excellent guilty pleasure author and it is entirely possible that I am a teensy, tiny bit addicted to her books. The moment the ARC hit my kindle I was on it and I didn't stop until I was done and the sun had risen again.

Sleepless night well spent. An insomniac's dream.

Harper Sloan has once more proven she is an excellent guilty pleasure author and it is entirely possible that I am a teensy, tiny bit addicted to her books. The moment the ARC hit my kindle I was on it and I didn't stop until I was done and the sun had risen again.

Sleepless night well spent. An insomniac's dream.

Bleeding Love is the second instalment in the Hope Town Series, which also happens to be a spin-off for the Corps Security Series. Basically the children getting a love life and it's glorious and absolutely shameless fun.

“Open your eyes, Megan. It's time to grab the rope.”

Megan has been living in perpetual darkness for three years, since her husband and best friend died overseas while serving in the army. After that her life once again became barely tolerable, with the only light in her life being Molly, her five year old daughter.

The moment Liam 'Lee' Beckett first laid eyes on Megan he knew she was the one for him. But with all the demons surrounding her he kept his distance, waiting for the right time. And then Dani and Cohen's wedding happened and everything changed for one night.

I really liked both characters a lot. Megan was a very strong heroine, justifiably reluctant since she has not only herself to look after but her daughter as well. It was heartbreaking to see her unravel and finally let people in.

Lee, just like his father Beck before him stole my heart. He is such a caring, thoughtful character and determined in his pursuit of Megan. Initially I was concerned that his advances would come over too stalkerish, but it went well in the end.

All I can say is their relationship was sincere, moving and done at a fitting pace. On top of that I loved catching up with some of my favourite characters from previous instalments, but Axel the babysitter has to be the highlight for me.

“One thing I know for sure. I want this. I want this and Liam’s going to give it to me.”

Bleeding Love was a really nice read, fluidly written and hooks you right from the start. It had a lot of sweetness, amble amounts of heartbreak and quite a few laughs. A well rounded read with a lot of heart instead and no unnecessary drama. If you like that sort of thing, look no further this is your book.

So far, most definitely my favourite part in the spin-off Hope Town series. Can’t wait to read more.

I know this is hard to believe but I am new to the Corps world, so I have been reading this books a little out of order. It started with Unexpected Fate and I was hooked. Harper Sloan knows how to bring sexy and I love meeting her characters.

3.5 Stars. This was good. Pretty low drama. Good plot. Strong leads. However the audiobook has a defect that gives away the ending at about half way and then repeats again at the end. That was disappointing and confusing but overall, I liked the story.

3 solid "Baby" Stars!

So I may be in the minority here with my rating. I liked this book...I just didn't fall head over heals in love with it as in previous books.

Liam Beckett is quite possibly the most amazing book boyfriend ever. He is a deep old soul that loves and gives big. He cant help but fall hard for a single mom whose light is dimmed by past tragedy and recent loss. Megan came into the Axel Corp offspring's crew when Cohen introduced the widowed mom. She has now been part of the crew as they w
I think Harper Sloan should rename he series from Hope Town to Swoon Town. This book is a sweet, tender and steamy. A pure swoony escape!

Megan has loved and felt the grief and pain of loss. She’s emotionally done, mentally drained, and spiritually dead. She’s created a shield around her heart. Trying keeping herself and her young daughter Molly at arm’s length from everyone for fear of having to go through that horrible feeling of loss again. But while cocooning herself, she’s forgotten how to live

Bleeding Love brings us the story of Liam and Megan. Before I fall all over myself when writing about Liam, let us focus a bit on Megan.

Single mom.

This poor woman. There is no feeling, no living – she’s barely even existing. If not for her little girl, Molly she would have faded into the background long ago.

Megan was introduced to us during Unexpected Fate when Cohen brings her into the fold after her husband who was serving with Cohen is killed.

Bleeding Love is a heartwarming novel about Megan, a young widow trying to find a new life for herself and her five year old daughter. Megan works as an author but she has become an insecure mess. She still feels devastated from her husband’s sudden death three years ago. She lives in despair, guilt and anxiety. She is not just heartbroken but also traumatized and haunted by painful memories.

Liam is a good honorable guy and a cop. Since he firstly set his eyes on Megan, he was utterly ch

Megan lost her husband a few years ago and is now left with her daughter and no one else. Alone in the world she doesn't know how to open up to her new found friends, and she especially doesn't know how to accept Liam as a part of her and her daughter's life. Liam is done waiting though, and he is going to make Megan his and show her how to feel alive again. He won't take no for an answer and he'll use all his skills to get what he wants.

Bleeding Love was such a beautiful story and for a lot of it my eyes were doing that stupid thing where they leak. Liam was so kind and patient with Megan and pushed her to come back to the land of the living again so she didn't miss out on her life. He fell in love with her the second he looked into her eyes and saw the pain and the life battling to be free. From that moment he was determined to be the person that helped her defeat the sadness.

After half of the book of Liam being super sweet and caring and just overall loving, I just couldn't take any more! It became too sweet and lovey dovey, and I just started to roll my eyes at Liam. He was a little alpha and pushy in getting Megan to open up but then he just became sickly sweet and always had to mention how much he loved her and have these overly sweet conversations about his love.

Megan finally opened up to Liam about her past and he was understanding and helpful but then that was it and it just went back to more mushiness. I liked the overall story and it was really touching but I just couldn't handle anymore talk about love. I liked the book and recommend it to just everybody because this author is amazing, sadly though, this book just wasn't my favorite of hers.

"A love worth having, is worth fighting for."

Bleeding Love is a second chance story of grief, guilt, healing, pain, and immense love. Harper Sloan once again has me swooning and on my knees wishing for a love, like Liam and Megan's.

One thing I love about Harper's heroines is their undeniable strength and Megan had it in spades. Even in the moments where the darkness threatened to pull her under she fought through. She wasn't able to1/18/16

Living past the pain...
Another Harper Sloan masterpiece to add to the collection. For my fellow Corps Security fans, Liam is Beck & Dee's son and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Lee has knee-melting sex appeal, a sexy smirk that includes a dimple, and a filthy mouth that will melt more than your knees (wink-wink). He's had his eye on Megan from the moment he first saw her at Cohen's going-away-party, the night before he left for the military. He knew she wasn't ready for him

Let me start with O-M-G...the FEELS...the glorious, glorious FEELS. No joke, I shed plenty of heart wrenching, gut twisting, cheesy grinning tears. Liam and Megan's story is a beautiful one of learning to trust yourself, trust your heart, and trust your mind. It's about learning to trust the person willing to give you all of their self. It's about learning to let yourself forgive, to let go of an all consuming pain and letting yourself heal.

2.5 Somewhat Indifferent Stars

Ok it’s official when it comes to the writing in the books in this series, there is just something that ensures I don’t develop a strong connection to the characters, and events. There are some heavy themes in the book and yet their depiction lacks the intensity and emotional potency it should have. There’s a veneer of superficiality that is hard to ignore and meant that I couldn’t truly sink in to the tale unfolding.

Also the sex scenes were just – skim worthy

Bleeding Love is book two in the Hope Town series and I am beginning to think I like this spin off series more than I did the Corps Security series. I never thought that was possible. This book totally consumed me for an entire day. I got lost in the troubled yet beautiful world that Liam and Megan share with us.

I so wanted to give this more stars. I ADORE HS and her series of books. For sure an Auto-buy. However, I felt like this story spent an absurd amount of time and detail with these characters explaining their love and adoration towards each other. It literally got to the point where I was just flipping pages waiting to get to a point that wasn't these two discussing how they finally "see" what is in front of them or that the h needs to explain over and over that she "feels" what "this" is.
