Just too much 'bouncing'

Not a good book. All it was was sex scenes separated by words. It might have been better if they cut them down the scenes to three or four instead of like 20. And they were all the same. It was just frustrating because the story was there just hidden between all the nasty romps. It got lost in translation. And there was no real romance at all. Just gratuitous sex. Too much for this old lady.

Well before this one I tried 3 other books by this author... every single one started with the H getting it on with some skanky OW in explicit detail. I almost gave up before trying this book.

Chris left town 2 years ago with no way to contact him. Jesse found out she was pregnant and never told her family who the father was as it was a secret affair. Chris being her brother's bf. Chris returns but is reticent to say why he had to leave. So Jesse is reticent to tell him about her/their son.

This book took me a while to get my head into. I loved the story line, curvy Jessi making a successful career in the modelling industry ( very positive image to put out), and Chris a choreographer, very different to the normal suited business man I read in Romance genre's.

I loved the empowerment by using a curvy woman for the main character, this is rare I find in the Romance/Erotic genre.
The cover however niggled me. The story brings you a confident curvy mum taking over the modelling industry,

Chris and Jessi have a communication issue. Eighteen months ago Chris up and left without telling anyone devastating both Jessi and her brother. Although there were extenuating circumstances he was unwilling to tell anyone the reason. Jessi in the mean time was pregnant and was unwilling to tell anyone who the father is including her family and in doing so shut herself off from any and everyone except her best friend Megan. Chris is back and Jessi is not too keen on letting him back into her lif ...more

Oh my, what a super sexy read (still fanning myself). This was an interesting read and I did enjoy it even though I grew frustrated with the H & h with all the secrets and lack of communication. But keep in mind that the lack of communication is what kept this book in the super sexy category. It seems every time an important conversation needed to happen, they end up having mind blowing sex. However everything does get worked out and the mind blowing sex still continues. ...more

For some reason my review of this book has disappeared, so I have to rewrite it. And I have no desire to spend any extra time on this book, as I made my self to actually read all of this book, so I will be short in this review pointing out the things that frustrated me.
I have never given 1 star rating before, but Because I Love You is the first book that gets a 1 star from me, as I just couldn't give it anything more.

So basically, I hated this book because the MCs were disrespectful and horribl

Amy Brent gives the reader what they want and so much more. Because I Love You has a great mix of emotions, revenge, secrets, lies, heartbreak, suspense, chemistry that sizzles off the pages, sex scenes that are steamy and delicious, second chances, and love.

I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

My momma always told me if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything, so here's the nice part.

The only part of this book I liked was that for once the guy was celibate during their separation.


Fair warning that there are spoilers below:


I love the secret child trope, but this was terrible. The guy didn't get confirmation the child was his until after page 300. This wasn't a secret child story, it was a second chance with a baby as an after thought.

I absolutely hated Jessi, couldn't

Repetitive and lacks depth

The story started out interesting but I felt no real connection between the main characters whatsoever. I found Jessi to be really immature and annoying. Her mind was set on reeling him in and spitting him out even before attempting to communicate with Chris about her feelings and why he left without a word. I don't understand why Chris refuse to tell her the reason he left town. I thought it was some big reveal so I kept reading hoping to understand, but it wasn't anyt

Don’t really know if I’ll continue reading this book.

Jessi, a plus size model who aspires to be in Tyra Banks league and praises Ashley Graham (who to me is a plus size fraud, lol) has a son fathered by the man who took her virginity, her brother’s best friend, Chris. A stage choreographed for runway shows.

He broke her heart and from the beginning it seems she’s set to break his for breaking hers yet at every turn... she fucks him. She plays his game too well. She flirts with him and everythin

Jessi is a model, single mom, independent and making it all work. Because the love of her life left almost two years ago without a trace leaving her heart broken, abandoned, and pregnant.
No one could know the name of her babies father, she kept that wrapped up. It caused tensions and her need for vengeance when her son’s father came back into her world.

This story involves secrets, lies, hot sex, lots of steam, and mind games.

I liked the book, it was your typical secret baby, and why keep the

The story makes little sense. The h smug, self righteous, a plus size model with a nanny for her 8 month old baby, lives alone. Her thoughts are all about not abusing her nanny, and while she says it's all about her baby, her internal dialogue show how venal she really is. It's not about the baby, it's about her. The H is barely outlined, no depth of character, silly plot, she meets the H, but just teases him? Unpleasant characters and plot.

This is my honest and voluntary review of an ARC.

Once upon a time, there was this girl who fell madly in love with her brother's best friend. She adored him, shared everything with him, including gave him her virginity. Then the harsh reality hit, he was gone. No letter, no call, no text, just gone. No one knew where or why. Then a stick with pretty lines on it happened to show up in her life.....now Jessi is a single mom, a plus size model and about to run into the very thing that has hurt her

First off, Kindle Edition ends at 22%.

Meh. It was fine.

I didn't really like any of the characters.
Jessi is annoying. She should not have lied to everyone. I really do not understand why she was intent on knowing the reason why Chris left. He left, that is what she should have been frustrated about, not necessarily the why.
Chris was very cocky. There were times he seemed like a good guy, but also many times where he annoyed me.
Justin started out as a great brother. Then he got really angry and so

One day Chris has gone. No note, no phone call, no message. NOTHING. His phone has been disconnected and no one knows why he has gone which leaves Jessi and her brother heartbroken. But a few weeks down the line, Jessi realises that she is in deep trouble a

I really liked the story, but it also kind of pissed me off. lol. I stayed up all night reading this an finished this morning. I hated all the games Jessi was playing throughout the whole, I liked the independence she had, but to demand answers when she was keeping one of the Biggest secret of his life from him. Jessi scared of being hurt and had to go through family drama all alone so she's guarding her heart which is understandable. but its a give and take and all she wants is to take and eve ...more

This is a second chance love story for Jessi and Christopher. Chris spent a lot of time at his best friend's house, who happened to be Jessi's brother.

Then all of a sudden Chris is no longer in town and his telephone number has been disconnected. Jessi is doubly sad when she finds out she's pregnant.

Amy Brent is an excellent writer and one of my all time favorite authors. I've read and reviewed many of her books all of which were captivating four and five star reads. With “Because I Love You” she has given us another superbly written five star romance. Chris and Jessi have a steamy loving relationship when suddenly Chris leaves town without explanation. Unbeknownst to Chris, Jessi is pregnant. Chris returns after a few years and wants Jessi back. Why did Chris leave? Will Jessi tell Chris w ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this story
Why, why, why....that’s the question Jessi keeps asking herself. Why did Christopher, the love of her life leave. Why no contact, Why no message. It never ends until 2 years later he is back...once again no warning, no message.
They say revenge is sweet but is it really. Jessi wants to hurt Chris for the hurt she went through but deep down she knows she can’t.
Being a curvy plus size model (which is a nice change from the skinny Minnie’s)

Communication is the key Jessi and Chris did not have this. Jessi kept his son from him even when the started a relationship again lying to everyone like she did not know who the father was and the only reason she was giving him the time of day was to get revenge on him and Chris he wants to keep the reason why he left away from her. They are back and forth do much I was dizzy.

Thumb downs for this book. I seriously wanted to like this book, but in all I could not stand Jessi. She was annoying as hell and ruined the book for me. I know this was a secret baby novel but when you hanging and hooking back up with the baby Daddy and don't tell him, he the father of the child he been seeing annoys the hell out of me. The father Christopher was also self center. It seems like him and Jessi issues in this book was just a long arguement. The only good thing about this book was

“I looked into his orgasmic eyes, watching them cloud over with lust as he looked up at me. “Sweet girl. So good for me. Stay like that. Let me—right there—yes—shit—” I rose up and rolled deeply into him one last time. I felt his cock explode, drenching my walls with his cum as my pussy clamped around his cock. I milked him for everything he had as my entire body burst into a simultaneous sheet of goosebumps. Electricity surging through my body short-circuited my mind, and for a second I forgot where I was. I forgot who I was and what I was doing and what my name was and who was below me. All that existed was myself, the beating of my heart, and the name that echoed off the corners of my mind.” 0 likes
