There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.

This is ours.

The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister.
That goes double when she’s his little sister.

It was just supposed to be fun.

She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.

JUST LOVE: Is a full length, stand alone romance novel by Prescott Lane. Spoken in 'Dual Perspectives.' This does flit from Past to Present and can be a bit confusing to begin with but it does make sense the more you get into the book.

From the cover to the synopsis to the author to the pages within this book was utter perfection. An Unforgettable, Unputdownable, Uplifting, Unique book in every way possible!! This easily went from a 5 star read to becoming one of my most favourite book

The lies we tell ourselves are the ones that become our truths.

Maybe this is an “it’s me not you” situation.

The writing was actually good. The book seemed to have potential. The cover was gorgeous. The synopsis was promising.

But, I just didn’t like it. I was bored. The first half of book is alternating between the present and past. I normally don’t have problems with books that do that. But I was beyond annoyed in this book. I didn’t like the jumping from present to past specially when

The synopsis doesn’t reveal very much so I’m not going to either. As this author is an auto read for me, I dove right in and was immediately drawn in until the finish. It didn’t disappoint.

Simply stated, this is the story of Rhett Bennett and Ainsley Rose. He’s her brother’s best friend, business partner and six years older. She’s a wedding dress designer and has been crazy about him since she was 15-years old. She’s back in Charleston, living in the same building, one floor down. He can’t stop

I am a wreck after reading this book. Every time I think of these characters I start crying—and it's not sad tears, it's tears because my heart feels so much, it feels so full, it's almost bursting. These characters became a part of me. I pulled so hard for them as I was reading, wanted everything to work out, and just the thought of Rhett and Ainsley squeezes my heart. Their story is such an intense journey. A story full of angst and heartache and beauty and hope and love. LOVE LOVE LOVEEEE! Go ...more

FIRST AND FOREMOST: I don't feel like I can start this review without first mentioning this absolutely exquisite cover. This cover immediately caught my eye the very first time I saw it and it's what drew me to actually wanting to see what the book was about. So this time....I did judge a book by it's cover.

Just when I thought I couldn't love Prescott Lane anymore than I already did, she went and delivered JUST LOVE, a romance at it's best, that had me falling in love a thousand more times.

Just Love was the kind of romance I love to read about—with unexpected twists, a touching plot, irreplaceable friendships, and words that hit you right in the feels and worm its way into your heart and soul ♥.

Prescott Lane delivers a story that is both beautiful and heartbreaking, and once again proves why she i

Hello minority! Here I am!!!

I loved the cover and I was thrilled by the synopsis.
I saw the ratings and also took a few glimpses at the reviews.
And then I started reading it with excitement because it felt like I would be swept off my feet. 42 chapters and epilogue.

I struggled to finish chapters 1-17, they were so full of past and present day, in order to find out what had finally happened to Rhett and Ainsley. And I kept reading and expecting to reach to a point where I would be move

“Falling in love is easy. Holding on to that love- that’s the real bitch. There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.”

Just love by Prescott Lane was an emotional life long journey and the discovery of not only finding your one true love, but somehow managing to hold on to that love especially when life throws you one hell of a curve ball.


Rhett has been very successful in his career as a veterinarian. He has a thriving practice with his bes

Is it just me that gets annoyed and can’t stop rolling my eyes at those 4, 5 stars reviews and their melodramatic sentences?? Does anyone still fall for those: “this story is so captivating” “It’s so much more than second chance” “it’s so beautiful and pulled on my heartstrings” “you love, you hate, the characters “ “you understand their choices because made sense at that time” “so emotional” “heartbreaking” blah blah blah. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️Give me a break.So generic and the same as ...more

I do enjoy this trope.."falling for your best friends sister". A contemporary romance with this trope makes for an addictive read. They are always emotional, angsty and filled with humour... Just love by Prescott Lane is a solid 4 star read for me with it's beautiful and emotional storyline.

Firstly, I couldn't start this review without making mention of the cover! It is stunning! Now I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but if you are already going into it with a smile, its got to be a plus.

This novel took me on so many paths before we got to the epilogue, that at first I was unsure if it was for me. There are two parts to the novel, and the first part is a little jumpy with past and present times and the two different lead characters. Once I got that worked out, it flo

JUST LOVE consumed me from the very first page and I could not put it down! Needless to say, my husband was constantly yelling at me to stop reading! Obviously he has never read a Prescott Lane novel because as I quickly learned, once you start there is no way to stop. I want to devour her stories, each and every one of them as she just crushed my heart and left me crying. JUST LOVE did not disappoint. Prescott Lane, you owe me a box of tissues!

‘Falling in love is easy. Holding on to that love - well that’s the real bitch. There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.’

Bro code can be a complicated and sometimes loose agreement that happens between guys. Staying away from a girl your mate is interested in, not going near their ex girlfriend or wife and being each other’s wingman sometimes fall into this ‘code.’ Staying away from your mates younger sister is also one.

"If love should be anything, it should be honest."


There are books you like. There are books you adore. And there are books like Just Love- the books, that are getting under your skin and will stay with you forever. Everything concerning this story is beautiful. From the gorgeous and eye-catching cover, through interesting and original plot, to the unique and loveable characters. But for me the most important is a message this story carries- love is a two-way street. And it’s not about giving. It

Rhett Bennett and Ainsley Rose have a lifetime of memories together, with Ainsley's older brother Brody relying on him to help parent her after their parent's pass away. Along with Brody's girlfriend, the four of them have been inseparable since their youth, the only rule being that they always protect Ainsley and she's always treated as the little sister. Little sisters grow up though and even Rhett, the womanizer, can't deny that he wants to know

This book... THIS BOOK!!! I cried... I laughed... I cried again... It had all the emotions and boy did I ever fall for these characters! Hands down will be in my top 5 for 2019.

I've been reading Prescott for a while and this book is by far her best yet. She has a great way of weaving the story and grabbing your attention, making you feel each of the excitement of the characters, the passion, the remorse, the love, the grief.

This is a journey of two people who fall madly in love. Its a secret tho

Love. Passion. Hope. Romance. Heartbreak.

This story had so many levels of happy and so many levels of complete heartbreak. It was all consuming. And truly an everlasting love story.

Wow. I am still reeling days after finishing Just Love, and I am not sure I can write anything to do this story or these characters justice. It is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful, deeply affecting and utterly unforgettable love stories that I’ve ever read, and I’ve rarely felt so connected to or invested in a happily ever after as I was with Ainsley and Rhett’s. Their journey is gut-wrenchingly real, incredibly moving and downright epic, and while it is emotionally intense and sure to i ...more

Review by Jen Skewes

I have read just about all of Prescott Lane's books and loved them all. There are books of hers that make you laugh some that take you on an emotional ride, some that break your heart, and while they may all be different in their own way, her stories aways manage to capture you from the very beginning. Just Love is a little different, I think both from what I have read and what Ms. Lane has written. And I mean that in a really good way. You still feel all the feels and

I loved this story!! Thanks Angie for the book love on this one!! I couldn’t get enough of these two. A reminder that love can conquer it all. Not easily, not without hardships but at the end of the day we fall in love with the heart of a person. The reason is beyond the surface and has to be revered and nurtured. Believed whole-heartily in able to receive it. This was an inspiring reminder of real love. Made me tear up like twice. I barely ever do that!! Thank you Ms. Lane for this gem.

I have tried to sit down and write this review a few times but can’t seem to get the right words to describe how much I loved this book. I devoured it. I felt every word. I was heartbroken and spent. I was consumed. The story gripped me from the very beginning. We know something happened, but we do not know what. We know hearts were broken and lives altered. The author takes us on a journey of past and present that will have you turning the pages as fast as you can.

Avoiding looking at me, she says, “That was fun.” “Not just fun,” I whisper, tilting her chin up. “It’s just love.”

Never judge a book by its cover, right? Ha, who am I kidding? I've read terrible, horrible, God awful books because they had brilliant covers. And, on the flip side, I've read amazing books with covers that were MEH. But I'm here to tell you that in the case of Just Love, it all worked out in that magical way where not only is the cover STUNNING, but the story is as well.
