I loved Piper and Roman! First loves reconnecting after years. What's not to love about that??

Piper was heartbroken when Roman left her behind all those years ago. He was focused on becoming a tennis great and did t have time to settle down. But she has finally gotten over him. Or so she'd thought until he comes back in her life. Wanting her to watch over his mom, a woman she loved as much if not more than her own. With her company focusing on the care of older people she hasn't the heart to say

Piper receives an urgent message from Roman asking her to meet him. However, after the hurt he inflicted on her when he dumped her a decade before, Piper isn't open to renewing the relationship. Roman uses the one reason for roping her in, namely his mother. Piper loves Sadie and finds it difficult to resist his request when it would appear that he has a valid reason for requesting her help. While Roman would like to reconnect with Piper and make amends for the past, he has a girlfriend draped ...more

Loved by You is the fifth book in Sophia Knightly's Tropical Heat Series and it was definitely worth the wait! I loved Roman and Piper's love story!
Roman broke Piper's heart ten years ago and has regret it ever since. Seeing her now has only brought up all of those feelings and he would do anything he could to make her see that he is a changed man. If only his life wasn't so complicated!
Piper doesn't want to forgive and forget. It took her months to get over Roman and eloping with the first guy

Second chance Romance…Overall, I liked this book. I really liked Piper. I found her a strong woman who still felt pulled by her love for Roman and her love for Roman's mother, Sadie. My favorite character was Sadie. She was fun and trying to make the best out of life after losing two husbands. I can see why Piper was drawn to Roman, but I didn't find him very likable. I felt like he should have distanced himself more from Bree sooner. Piper seemed like more his guilty secret at times than the ...more

Sadie was my favorite character in this book! She was hilarious, and I would have loved to have had her as my grandmother. The sad part, she isn’t one of the love interests this romance was centered around. I could read an entire book about Sadie and her shenanigans!

I liked Piper and loved her time spent with Sadie. As far as Roman…well, he’s…different. I was disturbed by how easily blinded he was by Brie – seriously, it was ridiculous how obvious her actions were, and that he was so easily

This is my first Tropical Heat book and I LOVED it! I didn't feel lost or like I was missing anything, but I still want to go back to the beginning and read the entire series. Piper is a wonderful character, she's thoughtful and kind, but can stand her ground when necessary. Roman is a hunk of a man and I swear I could actually smell his aftershave while I was reading this book...wishful thinking? Lol. Who doesn't think about reuniting with that old flame. You get to live that dream here. There ...more

Loved By You is the fifth book in the Tropical Heat Series by Sophia Knightly and a second chance at love romance. Like all the others in the series, it is a stand-alone novel. Roman and Piper were an item in high school, he was a tennis star and she made beautiful jewelry. When Roman left Piper to pursue his tennis career it broke her heart. That was ten years ago, now he is back and wants her to help him with his mother, Sadie. What will Piper do and will they have a second chance at love? You ...more

This is a wonderful second chance love story. Roman and Piper were high school sweethearts. This is the story about how they found their ways back to each other. Got to love influential friends that help the process. A wonderfully written story with a great cast of characters. It is a wonderful escape of life. I was gifted this book from ebooks discovery.

I was not a fan of Roman. He really didn't give good enough excuse on why he broke off with Piper way back. He also expected Piper to accept so much. He was a coward when clear communication with Vince would be more respectful to his mentor. Sadie, his mother, he treated her poorly too. Not using a condom (?) What was that about??

Sadie was delightful!!
