Sissy's Romance Book Review
A Hundred Ways to Love by Ellie Wade is the story of Liam Moore and Leni Turner.
Leni's parents were not good examples of what love is. Len's father was abusive to her and her mother. Len's mother turned a blind eye towards everything about her father. Leni only had her art, her Grandmother and Liam to give her any happiness. But her father took her art away then she started having stronger feelings for Liam than that of childhood friends so she stop coming to her grandmother farm where Liam was

A chance meeting with a bubbly, green-eyed girl in a cornfield changed my life, and I’m still reeling from its effect.

Holy wow. I am still speechless 18 hours after finishing this book. I’ve always loved Ellie Wade’s work and this one is no different. I was captivated by this story. I loved Liam and Leni’s story and omg Mimi was my favorite person ever! Watching Leni’s transformation was something beautiful.

I was mesmerized by this entire story and I wish there was much, much more! I would lov

This was the first book I read by Wade and it was great. Perfect second chance romance with some enemies to lovers as well as friends to lovers vibes and all the small town romance you can handle. It was awesome. I love to see how much Leni grew throughout the book. She wasn't always the most likeable character but you still rooted for her. Liam was that great southern gentleman that all the ladies swoon for. Perfect book boyfriend but even more perfect for Leni. ...more

A Hundred Ways to Love
By: Ellie Wade
Narrated by: Amy Hall, Ryan Haugen

I enjoyed this book immensely, the story is well-written with interesting storylines that captivate your attention from start to end. The characters and storylines are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. Leni Turner did not have the best parents or home life, her father did not treat her or her mother well and her mother did not stand up for her or h

“I need all the space I have for love because I have a lot of it to give.”

So in love with Leni and Liam...
This was my first book by Ellie, and it certainly won’t be my last! I am greatly enjoying learning her writing style. The characters in this story were very enjoyable, funny, and heartbreaking at the same point. Her characters are very believable. You can see all the love that her Mimi has for Leni and has always had her full support. Mimi would do anything for Leni, to keep her happy and sa

I’ve been writing and rewriting my review because I don’t know how to put in words that will say and express how much I loved and adored this book. I was hooked from page one, couldn’t put it down and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is my first book by this author but it certainly would not be the last. The writing just flowed and had me engrossed to the story from start to finish wanting to find out what happens next. I enjoyed every minute of it.

A Hundred Ways to Love
By: Ellie Wade
Narrated by: Amy Hall, Ryan Haugen

Ellie Wade knows how to pull me in and keep me riveted to a story. Every time I hear a book of hers, I am captivated. This is Leni and Liam's story. Leni has left Texas, getting away from everything she hates. Her childhood is less than stellar, and every bad memory is there. Except for her grandmother. Now several years later, she is back, and in the cocoon of the unconditional love she only gets from her. And then there is

This book hit me really close.It'a perfect example how parents can ruin your life and not give a single s**t about it.They probably don't even know they did it.Sad thing,really.

Leni was young when she realized how love can ruin your life.She watched her mother sacrifice everything for the man she loved,and in return she got nothing.Feeling alone,the only thing that made Leni happy was her grandma Mimi and her best friend Liam.But upon realizing her real feelings toward Liam,Leni decides to end t

Holy packed with the feels! This story is raw and emotional. It is about mental growth and seeing you are worthy of love even if it isn’t from the people that are supposed to love you unconditionally. Leni has not had a great life and you can feel her pain radiate in this story as she struggles to find her place. Liam has loved her for as long as he can remember but Leni refuses to get close. With Liam’s persistence, Leni starts to open up. It is heartbreaking to watch her crumble but so stunnin ...more

This book, I'm telling you THIS book, I could not get enough! I couldn't put it down and it was amazing!!

"He's the boy next door on steroids, and I suppose he literally is that for me-- minus the muscle-enhancing drugs."

Liam, Liam, Liam! Talk about a swoon-worthy book boyfriend. He is the perfect man - sweet, caring, fun, and loving! And he was so good to Leni, even when she didn't deserve it.

Sometimes when you try to not become a specific thing or a certain way, you inadvertently do things which cause you to become the very thing you hated. Leni spent most of her life trying to not become her parents; she becomes her mom, leaving her to believe she doesn't deserve to be loved. If only she knew Liam loved her... Growing up in an abusive household wasn't conducive to Leni's well-being. Every summer, Leni stays with her grandmother, Mimi, and it's a much-needed escape from having to ke ...more

A Hundred ways to Love by Ellie Wade
“Will she accept the love around her? 4 stars”

Leni watched love destroy her mother piece by piece as a child and a teen. Watching her parent’s horrible kind of love turned her off of love. When her feelings for her best friend Liam started to change, she ran. But now she’s back a little older and a little wiser. Will she be able to see the difference between the love she’s seen and the kind of love Liam is offering?

I think I have found a new book boyfriend in Liam! I mean he is super sweet and caring. He knows the real Leni not the one she's pretending to be. He sees her potential and helps her see her future. He lets her have her space to figure things out. He knows he loves her and has since they were 6 years old but she needs to figure out her own feelings towards him. Leni hasn't grown up the way Liam has. She was born with specific needs. Her father wants her to be and act a certain way. This isn't Le ...more

This was my very first Ellie Wade read and I absolutely loved this feeling packed read. I love a good second chance romance and this one was absolutely fantastic.

A Hundred Ways to Love was packed with emotion. The writing flowed beautifully from beginning to finish and the story and characters sucked me right in from page one. Leni and Liam meet as children, at the age of six to be exact. These two were the very best of friends and they spent the summers together when Leni visited her grandmothe

When someone breaks your heart the devastation is immense but when you know the decision your making is guaranteed to break your own heart it’s soul destroying but fear plays a major part in Lenies decision those meat to love her destroyed her mind as well as heart and she will never give anyone the power to make her experience that ever again.

Liam has had two loves in his life, farm life that takes up every minute of his day and exhausts his mind and Lenie his first love that exhausts his hear

A Hundred Ways to Love is such a heartfelt story that tugs at your heart from the start. Leni (Eleanora) meets her best friend Liam at the tender age of 6. They were two peas in a pod every summer when Leni would visit her grandma. Leni unfortunately wasn’t happy 9 months out of the year. My heart ached for her because her parents were something else. So what do you do when your heart is breaking everyday when no one is there to mend it or check how your doing, you harden your heart to avoid it ...more

First time reading Ellie Wade and have to say her writing in this story is very charming.
Eleanora, (Leni) Turner is an only child, her parents are not very nice people, her father is physically abusive and her mother is subservient to him and doesn't take care of her daughter. At age 13 Leni has a great sense of self, she knows what she wants and what she will not tolerate. However, her parents try to compromise her integrity by insisting she become someone who she is not. The one person in her

Another amazing cover to start. (Seriously Ellie always has incredible covers). Then the story was just perfect. Leni has had a tough childhood thanks to horrible parenting. But luckily visits to her Gram’s for the summer had always been her saving grace, not to mention her BFF Liam. They were inseparable as kids but then once the teen years rolled around, home life became even worse for Leni and she lashed out. Now yrs later she is forced to return from NYC and moves in with her Gram. And who i ...more
Well, Ellie Wade did it again, gah!! This author just can take you to such extremes with all the feels. I have sat for a few days just appreciating the skill she has and how to review this book. Once in a while you read a book that just digs deep into your soul and changes you a little bit.
This is a story of how the things in life that wound you can change the way you love. Leni had a hard childhood and it really scared her, making her afraid to let people love her. Then you have Liam, wow what
This was my first story by this author and I listened the audio version, narrated by Amy Hall & Ryan Haugen. These were also new narrators for me and I thought did a great job bring Leni and Liam to life. I enjoyed this story, even though Leni had such a difficult childhood, but I loved that she always had her summers with Mimi. It was sometimes hard to tell when the story was in the past and when it was in the present , which is why I'm am not the biggest fan of flashbacks in books. A good amou ...more

“I’ve been trying to be happy my entire life. Yet I’ve finally realized that everything I need has been here all along. The truth is that my heart has always been here, on this farm. It’s always belonged to you.”

Love isn't something you find. Love is something that finds you - second chance love story with self – discovery journey. Waiting for the one you love to love you back is hard but worth it – that's Leni&Liams story. Read it! It's a beautiful love story with full circle of life.

Cute and sassy

This is a first of Ellie Wade for me. Lately I've been into the dark romance, so this love story was a nice and calm read. I am on love with Mimi who reminds me so much of my own grandma. I could definitely relate to Leni and her back story. I wanted to slap her a few times through out this story and tell her to quit the pity trip and open her damn eyes. Ha ha ha. She does eventually and that was my favorite part. I'm glad she gave love a chance and found her happily ever.

does love require sacrifice?

Leni Turner made a decision as a young teen that could cost her that HEA. Growing up with a domineering father and a mother who gave up her dream in deference to him, Leni made a commitment to never fall in love. It’s this vow that forced her to push away the one guy that could be that HEA. Can her return to Texas, and being with ppl who genuinely love her, make Leni realize her mistake before it’s too late? Good story. Loved seeing Leni grow emotionally under the gen

I love second chance romances and this one is amazing. This book is heartbreaking and angst and also so much love that I actually cried at one point. Liam is truly what everyone woman wants in a man. Liam made me swoon hard for him in this book so many times. Leni got me frustrated and wanting me to yell at the woman. But I understood how Leni felt throughout the book. Two people destine to be together but sometimes you just have to hope. 5/5 stars

I had a hard time rating this book because part of me highly enjoyed it, whereas the other found it too sweet.

Constructively I found it well written and the characters well thought out. I would have liked reading a bit more of Liam’s life other than when he was around Leni though.

So, all in all a very good read if you’re into the sweet boy next door kind of male characters (I personally prefer a male lead with some edge).
