This book was good. I really enjoyed it until the end and that’s when it killed it for me. Literally. It was a total blind side and it’s no way to look and see if it will ever turn around. I guess basically we deal with enough crap like that happening in reality when you read books to escape you don’t want to see the same crap. Utterly upset and I’m never upset with a book! I have regretted reading this book as I feel the author should have warned us before we s

This is it. This is the final book from this series and I'm happy to read it but sad at the same time. Happy because this character will have his own book but sad because it's the last one.
Giulia Lagomarsino made me fall in love with her writing with this series. Her writing is hot and wild, intense and so much more.

Ryan
I would do anything to have what my friends have, the love of a good woman. Cassandra's that woman. I've known it since I met her two years ago. I've been chasing her since we finished our joint project at VAS, but she keeps turning me down. She's gone out with me and met my

(1 star)

Ryan and Cassie, I have wanted their book since he did up her shirt at their first meeting in Logan's book. The two have kind of danced around anything happening between them; Cassie has been keeping Ryan at arms length, and Ryan of course wanting to have some sort of relationship with Cassie. When Ryan finds out that Cassie has a kid, it comes as a bit of a shock, but he handles it, and even offers his help in the situation that Cassie finds herself in. Ryan offers to

Ryan and Cassandra have been building since early in the series and most notably since Logan. They met working on a project for the VAS services and I think for Ryan it might have been love at first sight. Ryan has been chasing Cassandra and she's been playing hard to get. When suddenly she finds herself fighting for custody of her son, Ryan steps up to help her out and they step into a fake marriage. I get tired of reading predictable books, but this book was full of twists and turns that I nev ...more

Ryan and Cassie's story has been a long time coming but I started reading this, I really never expected all the hidden twists/turns, unexpected surprises, the heartbreak, the angst, the drama, but especially the ending... Won't spoil it for the readers who haven't read this story but for those who have, you know what I'm talking about...

This author sprung on us, her readers a huge change in her original HEA's and I'm left wondering what's next!? But, being real here, this story has really touche

Why did you have to do this to me? Ryan tore my heart to pieces. Ryan is a romance novel, but it is way more than that. Ryan is a stand-alone, but I highly recommend you read all the others before you read this one. Also have tissues ready. This book made me ugly cry for real.
The plot of this book was good. I didn’t expect what I got when I read this book. This book is unlike the other books in many ways. First, I should say that if you are looking for a pretty romance story that is wrapped up

Ryan Jackson just wanted to be of some help. I’m glad that the author let’s us hear Ryan’s thoughts right out of the gate. But if I’d been standing next to him, I would have said, “man what were you thinking?” It was funny to watch him dig himself into a hole – it was kinda nice to laugh at his expense. Once I got to the end of this book, I would have probably slapped him on the back and told him that he made the perfect choice.

Cassandra Crawford just had her circumstances change drastically. Sh

Ryan freaks out in the first chapter of this book as he prepares to get married to Cassandra in Vegas. It’s a rough start to this relationship as the couple aren’t really sure just how this marriage is supposed to function.
This sweet and steamy romance had a lot of heart to it. Of course, Ryan and Cassie fall in love and there’s a bit of drama on whether their marriage will be temporary as initially planned. What makes this a show stopper is the addition of James and how Ryan really connects wit

The final installment in this series completely wrecked me. It took me awhile to come to grips with the ending. I'm not going to give any spoilers, but it doesn't have a happily ever after ending that most romance novels have. 

Ryan has been craving what his circle of friends have--a committed relationship. Ryan has been chasing Cassandra for almost two years. He knows that she has feelings for him, but she never acts on them or even accepts his dates except group dates with his friends. He final

I have not read all of the books in the For the Love of a Good Woman but I did read a few before getting to this one. I had also read a few books in the Reed Security series which has all of the same characters back again but looking from Sebastians security company side of things. I think this is why I loved this book more than many of the other readers. I already knew how it was going to end because of reading 3 of the Reed Security books first.

Ryan: A Contemporary Romance by Giulia Lagomarsino. This is the 7th book in the For the Love of a Good Women series. I have enjoyed each one of the stories in this series. Ryan was not at all what I was expecting, in the other books he seems so reserved and laid back but boy oh boy he jumped right into the frying pan with this story. I liked Cassandra character, she did what she had to for her son (what mother wouldn’t). What I didn’t like was the ending! I want a HEA for everyone and this one, ...more

Surprising end
I liked this story from the beginning because the starting point is quite interesting: it all starts on Ryan's wedding day with the woman he's been trying to seduce for a year and a half. It is an express wedding that he proposed so that she can keep the custody of her 10 year old son, now that the biological father wants to recover it to please his wife. The interesting point is that past the act of chivalry, Ryan realizes that he probably made the biggest nonsense of his life and

This story blew me away; I most definitely did not expect that ending, and I sincerely hope that there is another novel to follow this one in order to answer questions unanswered here!
This is the 7th book in this phenomenal series, and is Ryan and Cassandra’s story. Ryan has had his eye on Cassandra for two years, and accepts anything she is willing to give him, which is a friendship. However, neither of them can deny their feelings, and the chemistry is intense. No spoilers; this is a definite

I am a massive fan of Giulia Lagomarsino and am working my way through both series, this is the last book in the 'love of a good woman' series and is so far my favourite, but it's so emotional, This story is about Ryan who owns a construction company and finding the love of he's life. This is a really well written book and has the ability to make you smile but also will make you sad. There is a very emotional ending, that I'm not giving away as I don't want to ruin this fantastic story. You real ...more

I liked all the books in this series, but this one will make your heart hurt. You will need tissues.
It starts out like any contemporary romance. Even has some really laugh out loud funny sections! Although Cassie and Ryan have been hanging out together for over a year, she wouldn’t date him. She has a 10 year old son and that is a turn off for a lot of men. A situation arises and they end up getting married. Ryan falls in love with Cassie and her son James. So, this book has it

I love Giulia’s books, I usually don’t get upset or cry reading a book but this one is a tearjerker. The love between Ryan an Cassandra is a love most people would want. And going from no kids to having a son is a big adjustment for most people as it was with Ryan but he it is so well written that he seemed to adjust quickly. Again The love of a good woman series is an amazing series and I can’t wait to read the rest of the Reed Security series

After reading the whole series i didn't think i would be dissopointed with ryan and i wasn't. It was beautiful, funny, and emotional. I can honestly say the ups and downs to this book are so well done. Giulia manages to take you down a path and journey that is full of surprises,happiness,frustration and hearbreak. So beautifully written and thought provoking. It has been the best one so far.

I laughed and cheered through this whole story. Then the end. I've never know a writer to do this. I loved the story but I feel lost with it. I loved this family. My heart breaks and this story is stuck in my mind. I keep thinking of Ryan, Cassie and James missing out. Their story built me up with their whole family then ripped me to shreds. makes me think of The Dance. I'm struggling...

I'm a stay at home mom with a love for romance novels. There's nothing better than reading about a hot, alpha male that makes my heart swoon. I spend most days hanging out with my kids or writing about my next book boyfriend. I love crocheting, sewing, reading, and being outdoors, but in the end, there is nothing better than getting lost in a good book!
