I loved the continuation of Ashe and Rileys story and even though this book is told in Ashes perspective as opposed to the first one I would of liked the dual POV.

Ashes career has been in overdrive since book 1 and initially meeting Riley and he's trying to find a balance between it and Riley. Poor Riley the hits kept coming and coming but Ashe was determined to let her know that she's not alone anymore and he will not only fight protect her from the drama but, he will fight right alongside her.

I think I love Loving Riley even more than Loving Ashe! It's from Ashe's POV, which is a much-needed perspective since Loving Ashe was all Riley's POV. Ashe is worrying about what to do for Riley on Valentine's Day. The man is such a sweet, swoony guy that he just can't help but to fret about this momentous occasion. But, pretty soon he has a lot more to worry about than Valentine's Day. His past has come back to haunt him. A past that Riley doesn't know anything about. And when she finds out, A ...more

This is the long awaited sequel to Loving Ashe; I was so excited to be able to read this that I spent my morning in bed forgetting that I had pets to feed and housework to do!

The book did not disappoint at all! I loved it from cover to cover.

In book 1 - Loving Ashe - it was focused on Riley's life and her finally growing up and coming to terms with the things that happened to her. This book picks up a few months after book 1 ends, and we see more of Ashe; where he is fighting his own demons. Adm

Reading Loving Ashe must be read first. Loving Riley is book two, its continues Riley and Ashe's story but told in Ashe's point of view. Definitely alot of surprises, mystery and twist n turns. The conclusion to Riley and Ashe's story was great and I didn't want it to end. I loved their story. Although I can't wait for Gareth's story now.

Loved it! Can't wait for more of Liz's work.

This review is based on an audio-book that I received. It is an honest review and the complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

'Loving Riley' by Liz Durano is the story of Ashe Hunter. This is the second audio-book in "Celebrity' Series.
This series has 2 books and 1 novella. This audio-book is about 6 hours and 50 minutes long that does have a semi closed end.

The narrator, Martin John Hopkins has a nice and clear spoken voice. He is easy to listen to.

ARC received in exchange of an honest review. The thoughts are my own and in no way biased.*

Let it be said that I am a complete Liz Durano fan and LOVE HER WORK. I’ve been following her work since she was on Wattpad and I am so happy that she’s making a name for herself in the published world too, because frankly, if you’re a romance fan, you absolutely need to read Liz’s books. There’s no two ways about it.

This is book two in this series and I do recommend reading book one first. A lot happens in that book and although the author does an excellent job covering the key facts, I think the devil is in the details and feel having that knowledge will increase you enjoyment of the story. Ashe and Riley. Where to start. I wanted Ashe's story. It was impossible not to. He is hot, sweet, caring, supportive and in my opinion grade A book boyfriend material. There was a whole lot left unsaid and unexplored a ...more

This was a great book and ending of Riley and Ashe's story. They have their love and trying to build a life together. But now Ashe's ex-girlfriend wants him to help her succeed in Hollywood. Catriona and Ashe were in a 5 year relationship but it's been about five years since they last saw one another. She believes she took him from a nobody and helped him become today's Hollywood It Man.

The first one was way better, in this one Riley complete disability in making decision and stick to it was almost painful to me. The whole book was about saying something and, after five pages, going in the complete opposite direction, plus their dialogues where not funny anymore, it seemed like the author had to write this book but was not into it, but this is just my opinion.

Loving Riley follows on from Loving Ashe. This book is mostly written from Ashe's POV. Ashe and Riley are happily in love but Ashe's past has come to haunt him. It was shocking to everyone but especially to Riley. Ashe should have come clean about his past when he had the chance.

A lot is at stake for Ashe and he's decided to come face to face with his past to try and put a stop to it. Not only has Ashe's past reappeared in his life, Riley has been finding out more and more about herself and her

Another great story in The Celebrity Series.
Again we were able to follow Riley and Ashe's life. After all the events of the first book, Riley is focused on her work and her relationship with Ashe, and finding out who she really is, but Ashe's past reappears to put some doubts in everyone's heads, including Riley's.
When some secrets are revealed, will love be able to overcome everything?
I loved the story and the unfolding of all events. The twists surprised me a lot, but it was great to read abou

Loving Riley is book 2 in the Celebrity Series. I definitely recommend reading Loving Ashe first, so you can fully appreciate their journey, and the twists that come in to play. Ashe is reunited with a blast from his past, leading to plot twists and suspense. I loved this one even more than the first and highly recommend this journey. Warning: be prepared to read in one sitting, from start to finish, I couldn't put them down.

Wow, just, wow. I thought the story from Riley’s point of view was impactful but I was wrong. This update on their romance kept me on my toes and begging for more. I’m seriously hoping there’s another update, or at least more info about Gareth. And after listening to both stories with Audible as well, the stories are much more alive. Especially with this one, his accent is spot on!

I am in love with this series and these characters. while this is book 2, it can be read as a stand alone but I would recommend reading book 1 for the full effect of the characters background.

Decent read, but could easily trigger some people. One disturbing scene - not where the characters are participants, but where they walk into a bad situation. This novel is written from Ashe's perspective. It's not quite as good as Loving Ashe - some distracting editing errors and a little less development of the characters -but still a decent read. there's some BDSM in the novel that is more about Ashe's past than him and Riley, but it could be a trigger for some people.

Loved this sequel to Loving Ashe! It's a compelling continuation of Ashe's and Riley's love story full of twists and mysteries that drive the story on to a satisfying HEA. Riley revealed her past mistakes to Ashe in Loving Ashe and thought that Ashe was perfect. Well, he is more than just the handsome son of a Yorkshire farmer turned star of stage and screen. How the couple attempt to deal with his salacious past is, however, only part of this page-turner. Someone is out to ruin the couple's hap ...more
Riley Eames' dad has problems. He is an alcoholic. He's verbally abusive and still places the blame on Riley for her mom's death as a result of the house fire. Riley was 10 years old at that time. Mom had MS and was wheelchair bound too. But Mom also left many secrets that begin to unravel upon her death. Will Riley be able to handle it or will Ashe Hunter become her everything now that the truth is unfurled. Reality bites!

We finally get Ashe's story, although it continues a few months after the ending of Loving Ashe. Ashe is still fighting with his past, trying to reconcile himself and move from it, with Riley. Riley has shown some growing up here from the first book, but the focus of Loving Riley is mostly on Ashe working through his life and trying to come out on top, despite the fact that someone is out to destroy him. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I loved the plot twists that gave us a better idea of Ashe the ...more

This series is the first I've read of this author and I'm glad I picked up her work. The books so far have been well written with thoughtful plots and engaging characters. I love the sneak peeks into the celebrity romance genre and this author did a great job capturing the essence.

Liz wrote her first story in eighth grade, a serial drama that was sneakily distributed throughout her homeroom classroom until the teacher got hold of it and she almost got suspended (turns out it was NSFW taboo). As a result, the principal transferred her to the Poetry Club so she could work all the angst out of her system.

Fast forward 2014 and Liz published her first book, Finding Sam, which w
