There are books that you read and then there are books that you devour and they devour you right back!
This is the book 2 and book 1 has to be read in order for you to properly understand what is going on.
Ok now that is out the way, I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite books of all times. Victoria has done an outstanding job with this taboo romance. The love between Noah and Sena is one that you could only wish to have in your life. They have a true friendship that you can only en
"Love found me, and I’ll be damned if I let it go now." Ten million Noah Fierro Stars

My god. I don't think I've read a duet series before that had such feeling and love on every page.
One of the most moving and heartfelt friends to lovers (with a gay twist) I've ever read and I adored every single moment spent with Noah and Sena that I'm actually kind of bereft their journey is over now.

Why isn't this a running series? I'd really love more from them and their family. That epilogue was everyt

5 “bless my socks” stars!!

I don’t know where to begin. This book was nothing short of amazing. In order to understand what is happening in book 2 you need to read book 1.

Once again Victoria has pulled all the emotions out of me.

I was screaming at Sena to please wake up and feel how much Noah loves you. Sena is so worried about the opinions of others and how they will be perceived as a couple that she can’t see the forest for the trees. Noah stole my he

Oh my King Noah! Motherfkn Swoon Eyes

One of the things why I crush on every word V Theia writes is she gives amazing heroines. They're never wooden and 1 dimensional. She puts as much effort into the females as her gorgeous alpha males, flaws and all. I loathe perfection, it's unrealistic even in fiction, but what Sena brought was a female who admitted she overthinks and allowed others to influence her emotions, but when her turning point came she was able to admit she'd been wrong. Besides bei

What an end to a perfect duet series.
When Taboo Love is fun and compelling reading.

When all life ceased to exist until I devoured this book then you know it was good. Theia draws me in like no other and makes me feel all the feelings I want to feel when reading a truly emotionally charged romance.

Holy fuck, the unconventional raw passion oozes and drips all over this second installment duet series. From Sena's inner monologue to her descriptions when she's thinking of Noah t

I should take back every star! You made me want to think about liking Tom! This is highly unfair!

Now with that said...I freaking love this book! Find a way to give us more! Noah and Sena love story is the best. The epilogue was everything.

I did receive an ARC, but that did not influence my review. The words, feelings and making me like Tom did.

This is book two of the duet and it got better. Noah and Sena will draw you right in. Sena can not understand how her best friend is in love with her. But now there is a baby to consider. There are so many opinions that scares the bejesus out of Sena. Thank God Noah is a persistent villianous Lion. He shows Sean what she means to him without trying to stop her own life. V. Theia has the Southern woman down to a art in this book. Especially Senas Mom. The laughter will make you look like you are ...more

Book 1 broke me, but book 2 shattered me... and then put me back together. I cried in parts, wanted to rage in other parts, and throw my kindle most of the time but it was so worth it for that ending. I’m in love with Noah and Sena 😍

The Perfect conclusion to a modern day love story.

“We searched for love, and we loved hard, we yearned for it instinctively right from birth, sometimes it’s painful, other times it’s downright gutting to love someone. But then you get those rare moments of loving another person so big, so strong it consumed you from the inside out, the happiness so wild and fulfilling you don’t have to question the why’s of it. You simply loved.”

I’ve quoted one of my many favorite lines in this book above beca

Firstly I want to say I was given this as an ARC for a honest review,
and honestly it's frigging awesome! I didn't think it could get better after reading book one, I was sadly mistaken my adoration for Noah and his alpha ways trebled...I want my own best friend/gay who will treasure me like he does with Sena! and I want Sena's superpower! you have to read it to find out what it
And when she finely sees How much She owns Noah gahhh!!!
it was beautifully written and I devoured every word!

"I’ve fallen in love with one woman my whole life. I’ve been attracted to one woman my whole life. To the point of madness for both emotions. When I told Sena I couldn’t get enough of her I meant it. It’s not because she’s giving me a child. Not only that. It’s a small part of it. She’s more radiant now than she’d ever been, and I longed to be with her in a way I’d never felt with any partner or lover before. Everyone that came before her was a passing fancy at best. Sena was vital. She’s everyt ...more

This book I don’t know where to start. It was amazing, I think I will start there. Part 1 had my heart breaking for the end and I had a feeling of dread of Part 2 because I thought could what I wanted with the two of them.

Sena- is just the girl that I think all of us are deep down, insecure when in a relationship and now she feels she has more reason to be. Will she allow Noah back in her life? I was screaming at her to.

Noah- where do I start with this man? He says so many

I have never read a book with as perfect a title as It Was Always Love. All my friends know that my life saying is “ it is all about the love”. Well this story is truly all about the love and everything else is icing on the cake. This story shows us that you cannot put boundaries on love. It is inexplicable and if we are very lucky, we find a life long love and connection. Noah and Sena grabbed my heart and soul and gave me a feeling that I rarely experience when reading a book.

Firstly, I want to say that I love how V has pulled this series off. In a world where ‘love’ is still defined by standards we no longer understand; this taboo love story is relevant to each and everyone of us in the twenty first century. If you have ever fallen in love, then you understand that you don’t choose that person. It just happens and that’s what makes it beautiful. V has written Sena and Noah as strong headed characters facing the world we live in and the judgemental eyes that still ro ...more

What a great conclusion to this story. The love that Noah and Sena had for each other was swoon worthy. They showed that love has no boundaries. Love is love.

Noah. Sweet Lawd that man has the best dirty talking mouth of anyone. Add in his sweet side and he would be hard to beat. Sena. Battling with issues of how this relationship will be received. Understandable but also frustrating at times. Noah couldn't have shown how devoted and steadfast than he already did. I still loved her inne

You will believe in the power of true love.

This love story will touch your heart and never let you go. Noah and Sena share a love and friendship that even being married almost 20 years I aspire to. V. Theia has a way of pulling you in and making you root for the love of her characters. It may feel like an emotional Olympics, but it's so worth it!!💕

It Was Always Love is an amazing book! 5 stars is not enough to rate the mind blowing, heart breaking, and soul searching book by V Theia. We search for love that’s what makes us all connect to Sena and Noah. Love that is not allowed, banned for whatever reason, the heart wants what the heart wants. Noah and Sena took me on a emotional rollercoaster but each and ever emotion only had me more invested in the outcome of the two. I fell in love again and again with Noah! V. Theia writing should com ...more

Absolutely loved it!!!

I'm a big reader. Probably a book a day when I can squeeze it in between life and I could put it down. I'm a sucker for a true love story and this was it plus some!!
I was love drunk over these characters. They annihilated me.
Noah is unlike any hero I have read in a long while.
His dirty mouth did things to me. Repeatedly.
And the way he loved Sena, uncomplicated amid all her doubts, even though it was his own sexuality that had gone through the biggest change of all, he made my heart smile.
I love these kinds of heroes. Where I can read the story, even if it has some drama ( it did ) and angst to cause me to stop breathing (it sure as hell did!) but throug

If I could give this book more stars I would. I have never read anything like this, ever. That alone is something I'm always looking for, but then V. makes it really funny, super sweet, and hot as hell. What a combination of emotions she had me feeling through out this book and the first one. I am head over heels for Sena and Noah, maybe verging on obsessive. I love her MC series with all my heart but this blew me away. I honestly don't think it could have been written any better. I loved the Se ...more

I loved it it blew me away it was so realistic I loved how she showed us Sena's concerns and fears that any person in that situation would've been experiencing and I loved Noah's pov and the way that he loved Sena without limitations he just made me love him more.

You simply love

The second installment had me rushing through pages. Just wanting to know what happened. I had to know and i got completely sucked into Sena and Noah’s world.

V. Theia writes some of the steamiest scenes I’ve ever read. Not sure there is another out there in her league because even with all her hot pages, my favorite parts are the original stories she creates. You can get lost in the story/world and truly wish she would never end her stories/world. Man that ending. Have tissue. I

Noah and Sena!

Look, I don't know what some of the reviews are going on about, you can't have too much sex in a book when it's written so hot and perfect! it's just not possible to have too much especially when you have two people so lustfully in love with each other that their clothes spontaneously fall off at will.

Oh my freaking god!! Noah Fierro where have you been all my life!!

As a reader you hope with each romance book you pick up to find that ideal couple that you just fall madly in love with. It happens sometimes but few and far between. More often than not one or both of the lead characters annoys the hell out of me. This was not the case. I was enchanted by Noah winning his friendship and love back. Their misunderstanding was soon solved and then the story became about

You nailed it! Couldn't have asked for a better life for Noah and Sena. Epilogue and extra scene may have been my favorite. Well... besides all of that dirty mouth that comes from Noah! Bravo, Theia!

Oh this duet owned me!!

One thing I really liked was the structure of the POV. It's mostly from Sena's feelings and thoughts and all Noah's actions come from her POV. This is tricky to do, because the author doesn't drip-feed us both sides as most books are now, which I find irritating sometimes when the same scene is played over but just in a different voice. This duet is left a lot to the imagination of the reader and trust in what Noah says and does through Sena's eyes is real. And it's so re

I called the author every name under the sun for the things she put Noah and Sena through, but oh my was it worth every ounce of wine I guzzled just to get me through the first five chapters. Then I added chocolate to the mix and my anxious heart began to cope with the emotional rollercoaster that is this sweet, sexy couple and their journey to each other. A del ...more
