Growing up wasn't easy for Lottie. As an only child with self-absorbed parents, she soon learned that the one person she could depend upon was herself. A brave face and defensive self-preservation kept her strong.

Then Lottie met Spike.

He didn't see her little habits as frustrating; he embraced them.

He didn't run from her fiery temper and sharp tongue; he admired her for he

I received an ARC for my honest review.

After reading the first two books in The Kingdom series, I was so excited to hear that Nikki Groom had given Lottie and Spike their own book! I love this pair! Lottie is a little fire ball and I was so eager to see what would become of her and Spike!

This is the third book in the series but it can be read as a standalone, however I recommend you read them all to get the full back story! Besides this is an epic series that nobody should miss out on reading!

Heart wrenching, soulful , emotional are just a few words to describe this novel.

I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This novel is # 3 in The Kingdom Series (Holding Aces & High Stakes)

This book can be read as a standalone but I would encourage you to read the complete series to truly get a feel for all of the characters as each play an integral part in Spike’s healing. The author brings us the story of Spike & Lottie & their struggles to survive after the terrible

I feel drained ! This book has had me crying tears of sadness and tears of joy, I have no more tears left ! But every tear spilled was so worth it, this book is Nikki Groom!s finest hour.
I believe this book can be read as a standalone - not sure why you'd want to miss out on Arianna and Denham's story but you could. If you have read book 2 you'd know that this book was going to be difficult to read. In the two previous books Spike has been the life and soul of the party, not taking life to serio

This is the third book in the The Kingdom series and even though it can be read as a standalone, I believe I would have understood more if I had read the previous two books. With that being said, I did enjoy reading Lottie and Spike’s story. This is a story with issues of depression, grief, anger, and tragedy that leaves you with a feeling of hope.

Lottie is loyal, stubborn, and believes in the ability to face anything with Spike by her side. H

I voluntarily read a copy of this book.
This is the third book in the Kingdom series, and can be read as a standalone, but in all honesty, do yourself a favour, and read the complete series. This is the story of Spike and Lottie, who we met in previous books.
This is a short, sweet, but emotional read. I loved it, and I recommend Nikki’s work for all. Cannot wait to read more of this authors work.

The third book in The Kingdom Series (Holding Aces & High Stakes)

You can read this as a standalone book, however, I believe it is better to read the first two books as it will give you a better insight to all the characters and the story as it played out.

Ok so I get that books make you cry however who cries whilst writing a review? Well apparently as of now, I do! The minute I think about how I felt whilst reading Lovestrong tears fill my eyes. This book was beyond epic for me. I felt invested in Lottie's story long before her story was even a story. Right from the beginning of Holding aces I fell in love with her, she was the perfect best friend to Ari, in fact in a review of the earlier books I believe I called her the best friend we all want ...more

I have waited for this book for sometime know. I so wanted to see what was going to happen with Spike and Lottie.

You have to read the first 2 books in order to get Lovestrong. You get the feel of Lottie and Spike in those books. You also know what happened to Spike in book 2.

With Lottie doing everything she can to help Spike after his accident he just pushes her away. Lottie has to find her way and in doing so she leaves. She has to find herself before her and Spike can move forward.

There has been an accident that has left Spike paralyzed from the waist down. He is self-loathing and angry. He feels like he has lost everything and there is no way he’s going to let Lottie go down with him. So regardless what she says or does, he pushes her away.

Lottie knows she loves Spike and that she belongs with him but what can you do when that person won’t let you be a part of their life. So she starts trying to figure out how to put her life back together without him. She goes on a jour

This is the third part of The Kingdom Series and picks up after the event of High Stakes. It can be read as a standalone but to get the full affect its best to read the two previous books before reading this one.

This is Lottie and Spike's story, after Spike was injured at the end of High Stakes his life spirals into a dark hole. Feeling like he is a burden on everyone he hides himself away and calls off his relationship with Lottie. Pushing away everyone who care

Wow, what an impactful story! I loved Lottie and Spikes story, filled with some really heavy emotional feelings but also has a message of hope for those people who are struck down with tragic events. Your heart bleeds for Lottie when Spike turns his back on her, thinking that he's setting her free so he isn't a burden to her. The journey takes her to London and I loved Torran, he's a big teddy bear kind of guy on the inside, big bad guy on the outside. The experiences that Lottie has in London m ...more

I loved reading Spike and Lotties story, this was the perfect read to follow on in the amazing Kingdom series. Whilst this is the third book it could possibly be read as a standalone - but you really should read the others!

Heart wrenching and heartwarming story of Lottie and Spike. They loved each other madly except tragic events turn their fairy love story into a nightmare. What happens when the love of your life doesn't want you anymore. Tragedy can either blind you or enlighten you, and this story shows the reader both.
I hadn't read the 2 previous books, but I was able to appreciate and understand the story.

Could not put this down once I started it. It's one of those reads you get so immersed in that before you know it, it's all over and you want more. I loved Lotti and Spike and their heartbreaking journey. Spike thinks by pushing Lottie away he is setting her free to live a better life without him, leaving Lottie to fly accross the world from Vegas to London to get a fresh start. But the heart wants what the heart wants and you can't fight true love, even from accross the oceans! The support char ...more

Lovestrong is the third book in the Kingdom series. It can be read as a stand alone but I think you will understand Spike and Lottie's sorry better if you read the first two books. It will help you to understand their relationship and also see the events that lead to where that are at this moment.

Lottie and Spike are in love. They own each other completely and know that they are it for each other. Until tragedy strikes and changes everything. Spike is in a position wh

I fell in love with this series and author when I read the first two books Holding Aces and High Stakes. You don’t have to read them to understand LoveStrong but I would highly recommend it so you get the full story of how life was before this book and now why they are dealing with the current events.

Lottie and Spike are clearly meant to be together, their love and commitment is strong, so why is Spike changing his mind now when he needs her the most? Lottie is heartbroken and not sure she can

5 out of 5 stars

The story Lovestrong (The Kingdom Book 3) by Nikki Groom is a Woman’s Fiction romance. Lottie has a hard childhood. That changed when she met her best friend Arianna. Strong willed and independent she seems to chase more people away then to her, then she met Spike. He was not put off by her temper and sharp tongue, no he didn’t run from her, he ran towards her. He started breaking down the walls that she had put up and she loved him l

Lottie and Spike's story continues. Spike is recovering from being hit by a car. He has received the news that he is paralyzed from the waist down. He is in a constant state of self-pity. Wishing that he had died from the accident and not really experiencing any joy in life. He pushes Lottie away, feeling as though she can do better. He doesn't want her to be with him because he no longer feels like a man. Lottie has tried her best to support Spike, to stand by his side, to love him and to just ...more

If you haven’t read the first two books of the Kingdom series, you have to before you read this because you will not get the full effect of Lottie’s and Spike’s love. We meet these two characters in the first two books and you may not read about Spike so much but Lottie is a fierce soul throughout the series.

After spike's accident he doesn't know how to deal with his injuries, his friends and family and the only person who has ever held his heart. Feeling like he has no other choice he decides he would rather tear his own heart apart than be less of a man for Lottie, so he pushes her away.
