I had to think about what rating I wanted to give the book. While it is a romance, there are some situations in the story that seem like they probably happen in real life. Won't say any more about that as I don't want to give away the plot of the book. I couldn't help but fall in love with Drew even though he wasn't as open in the beginning of the relationship as Aubrey was. Glad there was happy ending and would recommend reading the book.

Love War is the perfect name for this book. And unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it is a modern day example of families.
Doug Harris is ex husband of Aubrey and dad of Reece.
Aubrey Harris - stay at home mom to Reece, low self esteem, ex wife of Doug soon to be B&B owner.
Drew Williams - soon to be ex husband of Sarah Harris and owner of Williams Construction and dad of Andie.
Sarah Harris - soon to be ex wife of Drew Williams and mom of Andie.

4 stars!!! Wow what an ending!!!


This story isn't about just two people, there are many. This book touches on so many things... divorce, separation, love, hate, guilt, deception, passion, family, friends are just some.


When you think you are bound to live life on auto pilot something snaps. Time to take your life in your own hands and be happy. That's what these four people thought except too many secrets, too many lies. How many people can handle heartbreak not once but twice?!?!

Wow, what a great read! I wasn't sure how I felt about Aubrey right off the bat but I ended up really liking her. She realized she wasn't happy in her marriage but didn't just give up. She tried for herself and her daughter but finally realized it just wasn't working for anybody. I liked Drew right away but he was in an equally difficult situation. Whereas Aubrey didn't hold anything back Drew did but out of what he believed was for the best. I liked how they confronted their spouses and came ou ...more

Love War: It was a suspenseful, emotional and fantastic story! It always hard for anyone that has been in a bad relationship to start over and trust again especially if you have children of any age. It was a great story and well written. Loved the cover and the title. I could not put it down it was good.

When you've tried but you're all tried out. When you know someone is wrong but you can't quite figure out how....A fantastic second chance romance filled with love, forgiveness, hope, a jealous bitch, passion, betrayal, heartache, new beginnings, Putter lol, and a HEA. Well written and creative plot twists and nuances make this a MUST read for summer! LOVED IT!!
I received an ARC and am voluntarily reviewing the story.

This book was not what I was expecting, from both the title and the blurb, but in a good way. The blurb is vague, but when you get to the end of the book you can see that it is actually rather fitting.

So first, a tiny introduction.

Aubrey is married to Doug, and they have a daughter Reece. After 12 years of being married and life happening Doug has an affair with his assistant and Aubrey and Doug divorce; they maintain shared custody of the daughter. Trying to get her life together now that she

This book was a lovely mix of every emotion. It had me happy, sad, angry, gushing at something the male lead Drew did and laughing out loud at something funny. I honestly loved every page. It has a great mix of characters and a great plot with a twist that had me ohmygoding! I was hooked from the beginning the characters are so likeable I couldn't put the book down. The children's characters were fantastic, it's so rare for them to feature so much but it was a lovely addition. I hate spoilers so ...more

How refreshing Cary Hart's book Love War was to read. We got characters in their thirties, single moms, divorcees, and children.
The story follows a recently divorced Aubrey who is learning how to co-parent with her ex-husband and be single after a 12 year marriage. Enter single dad Drew who is a hard working contractor hired to do work on Aubrey's home. Together their chemistry hits the nail on the head, but love is not so easy when children and ex's are involved.

What a great story. I absolutely loved or loved to hate the characters.

Drew was a sweetheart and I absolutely adored Aubrey. She's a ball breaker and a sweetheart and a loving mum all rolled up in to a sweet ball.

Doug deserved a swift kick in the balls and Sarah needs to be taken down a peg or 2. What a bitch.

The girls were adorable and hilarious and typical children which helped with the authenticity of the story.

Great storyline helped bring these characters to life.

I love a twisted love story! The ending was shocking and I couldn't stop reading till I found out what happened! I also really enjoyed that there were kids involved in the story! I think it added that extra connection to the characters and their story.

Cary Hart wrote a unique love story with an interesting take on the roads that people end up. The book is about divorce, becoming a single-parent and finding love again, which many readers can relate to in their real-life. The prologue is gripping and emotion, sending you down into the dark hollows of your soul. You feel so strongly for Aubrey, who is dealt a blow after twelve years of marriage.
“When I asked for a divorce after 12 years of marriage, I never thought this is where I would end up.

Packed full of emotion. I absolutely loved every minute of Drew and Aubrey's story. Both coming from divorces that neither of them really wanted or saw coming. And the twist to the story! OH MY!

Highly recommend!

So this is my first Cary Hart experience, and as experiences go, I am hooked.  Love War is the first book in the Battlefield of Love series and if book one is any indication, the rest of this series will be equally worth your time.

Since this was my first time reading anything by Ms. Hart, I really didn't know what to expect and the synopsis was light on information.  Zero time was wasted in getting the reader pulled in to this story, which is something I truly appreciate!

This song kept playing through my head as I read Cary Hart's book. This is the first book of hers that I've read and I liked it very much. I loved Aubrey and Drew. Aubrey is a strong single mother. On a night out with her best friend Niki she meets Drew. They go their separate ways but fat

Love and War is my first book by this author and it definitely won't be my last. I really enjoyed Aubrey and Drew's story. I loved how the author brought these two together and that even though their first marriages ended in divorce they didn't let it affect their relationship. The writing is great, excellent dialog, well developed characters and a great story line make this a 5-star read. I will definitely be looking for more books by Cary Hart to read in the future.

Loved this book about two people trying to recover from divorce while they try and protect their young daughters. Aubrey and Drew meet unexpectedly but are both dealing with marriages that didn't start out ideal and have now ended in divorce. I loved how they came together without baggage to keep them apart, they both have dealt with the divorces without being jaded. Both of them are more concerned about their kids and how the divorce has affected each of them. Aubrey's daughter Reese, and Drew' ...more

A great read, can't wait for book 2

Love War is exactly what you get in this new book by Cary Hart. I was blown away by all the feelings this book brought out of me- love, hate, sadness, laughter, tears, revenge, longing, happiness, etc. My box them in the same hour. I look forward to reading book two.
