Dorian Anson is my friend. She's the only person who's ever questioned my smiles. My jokes. The one liners that have our friends shaking their heads at me.
I've lived my life on those smiles. They never failed me, until her.

I wasn't counting on her when I designed my front. I never imagined the possibility of someone like her coming into my life.

The wild hair, the kind smil

There’s nothing better than when a story and its characters gives me tingles and goosebumps all over. Jake and Dorian aka Dorke did that to me. Delicious and swoon worthy tingles. From head to toe. Ever since reading No One But You and For You I’ve been pumped and excited to read Dorian and Jake’s story. From those two books I knew they had a good story that needed to be told and amazing chemistry. Alexandra Silva exceeded my expectations with Someone Like You. She literally blew me away!

Someone Like You is a beautifully romantic love story that flowed easily. It put a smile on my face and warmed my heart.

Dorian Anson is a fixer and a fiercely independent single mom. She has suffered terrible loss, but still has an optimistic outlook. Her love for her son is first and foremost. Her hesitation is understandable after everything she has been through.

Jake Roth lightens the mood with a single joke. He’s handsome, successful and wants to be more than a friend to Dori

I've never read the previous books in the series and I've missed out. A friends to lovers with an older couple hurrah.

Dorian and Jake were fantastic characters both successful in their careers and very complex people. The story of single mum Dorian was so relatable, her struggles to juggle work home and her son without losing herself was something I could empathise with. Jake is very true to the saying still waters run deep because what you saw on the outside was not the man he was.

I always seem to stumble into these great books that are part of a series... and hardly ever in order. :) I received Someone Like You as an advance copy from InkSlinger PR in return for my opinion.
I loved it! Now I have to read the other 2 books in the Imperfect Hearts series.
Dorian and Jake are wonderfully well written characters. So perfect for each other even though they are both too scared to admit it at first...
This was such a great story of learning to love again in spite of fear and past

My favorite book of the three!! I highly recommend the entire series. Jake is by far my favorite character out of this circle of friends among the three books. His sense of humor and loyalty to family and friends is complete swoon worthy.

Gush time complete.

Dorian Anson lost the love of her life but she gained a new love--her son Daniel. Looking for love again never crossed her mind. She's tried scratching that itch but the whole ordeal felt forced to her instead her focus returned to her son and

Dorian Anson and Jacob Roth finally get their full story! An exciting event as they make such a wonderful couple, along with Daniel her son, and Dorian has been through so much she deserves it.

I’m not sure I will ever be able to even think of truffles again without having a chuckle after reading this book! I enjoyed the levity in the story, especially between the female characters. Balancing this humour is a darker issue, we’ll really there are a few, but the main one concerning Jake’s sister is

Alexandra Silva knocked me off my feet with her debut novel No One But You, then she left me speechless with For You and now she made me the happiest person on earth with Someone Like You 😍

First I have to say that this story is absolutely amazing and I could not get enough. I felt like I was right there next to Dorian and Jake seeing their story unfold and seeing all the fears they had and the love that grew each day for each other.

This author was new to me and I will definitely be looking up the other books in this series.

This was a Friends to Lovers story between Dorian, a strong, independent single mum trying to build the best life for her son after the loss of her fiancé, and Jake. Jake is supposed to be the ladies man of the group but is actually protective and sweet. Watching him with the children, and with his sister is so adorable.

I really liked the dynamics of the group, and that they were all friends separately.

*Must read book 2 before this one

I've enjoyed this series and will continue to look forward to more books. Though I prefer books with more angst, the series has managed to hook me with well written and endearing characters. From Jamie & Quincy's story (book 1) to Dorian's story (books 2 & 3), I've become attached!

Why not 5 Stars?
At about 60% I got a little impatient with the pace of the story. Considering the book is 500 pages, not much seems to happen. I needed more angst, mor

Someone Like You by Alexandra Silva is a slow burn, friends to lovers, contemporary romance told in dual POV. It's the third book in the Imperfect Hearts series, and although it may be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading books 1 and 2 first as they lay a wonderful foundation for Dorian and Jake's story.

Someone Like You is a very beautifully written romance story. It was such a great read. Dorian is a strong independent single mother and has suffered great loss in her life. She is an optimistic individual with the will to keep on pushing through. Her son is her first priority no matter what.

Dorian and Jake have been friends for years but something has shifted and each has seen each other in a different light.

As book 3 goes have to say it feels like we have come full circle. I never did like Phillip but he did give Dorian the best part of him. The chemistry between Dorian and Jake was tense with tons of passion. So easy to see them right in every way from the way they interact with each other and when they love is just wow. This was a great series and so happy to see how everybody has come along the way.

I love that we finally know Jake and Dorian's story! Jake is a guy who'd everyone should want to be friends with but only a few know the real man. Dorian has been trying to move on since losing her husband years ago. These two come together and it's such a beautiful story of love. Jake loves with everything he is. Love their story!

The first couple of chapters were hard for me to get into, but I'm glad I stayed with it. This is a very emotional book that not only has a great love story but a story about not shutting people out of your life. Dorian is a great mom but she became even better when she decided to let herself love Jacob.

Dorian stole my heart in the first book in this series and wow was I glad she got her own book. This is such a good read. Highly recommend this series of standalones.
From the very moment I started reading this book I found myself captivated by the deep connection between Dorian and Jake. They’ve been friends for many years, leaned on each other in a connection that is evolving into something more as the sexual tension surrounding them is becoming too much to ignore.

Alexandra Silva has the ability to write a realistic romance story that will have her readers experiencing and believing in every moment and word.

I have to start this review by saying how much I’ve been enjoying this series. I really liked No One But You as well as For You. I also liked both Dorian and Jake in those stories as supporting characters. So when I saw that they were getting their own story in, Someone Like You, I was really looking forward to reading it. I knew Jake would be the perfect person for Dorian. I knew he’d bring laughter and happiness into her life, which we all know she deserves. I knew he’d be the perfe

Come rain or shine with either coffee or wine in hand you can find her with her nose stuck in a book and her head in the clouds. She lives in London outnumbered by her very loud boys, with her very own hero and their two wild cats—Jack and Jill.
