From bitter to sweet

A story that starts off with resentment, which we do learn the reasons for as the story moves along, yet resolves in a good way.

Kensley and Noah were once friends, having grown up together, along with her brother. Yet her brother didnt come back from Afghanistan. Noah did. So when Noah returns to their hometown barely months after her brothers funeral, hes the last one that she wants to

Kensley is still struggling after burying her young brother, Kevin, who was killed in the line of duty and her grandmother. She feels alone and in need of leaving the small town of her youth. Too many memories and too much pity. Especially after her humiliation with her ex, Eric. Noah, a marine vet, has struggles of his own, but he can't seem to stay away from Kensley. This is there story of hope.

This story had a slow start... and a slow middle. Kensley had good moments, but more moments where

If I Love You is a beautiful love story. Tmonique Stephens developed characters that are familiar to us all. We also know people like other characters in their small town. Those characters give the story the right amount of reality. I did have to wonder after a point what happened to Kensley's BFF Tori. Then again, after a point, she was not missed.

Kensley and Noah are very relatable characters, which makes it very easy to root for them and empathize with their struggles. Their flaws and

Wonderfully real, emotionally rich

How can you love the person who is responsible for the greatest tragedies of your life? In school, Kensley crushed on Noah Kirby, but he left to join the Marines and crushed her dreams. He returns, a wounded war hero, whose life was saved by the sacrifice of Kensley's beloved brother, Kevin. She has nothing left - no family, no future, no hope. So why the heck can't she turn off the attraction to Noah? Noah is in bad shape. Physically he's healing, but his heart

Kensley was grieving. In the span of a year a he lost her be other to the war and her grandmother and she blamed him. Noah was wounded. Not physically but mentally and emotionally. He had been intrigued with Kensley since listening to her brother talk about her.

If I Love You is an emotional read about a woman who has lost everything and a man who came back from war ravaged with PTSD, grief, survivor's guilt and a heart filled with love for a woman he feels he has no right to love. This is a well written, heartbreakingly beautiful story that captivated me from the first page until the last. I loved the way no matter what has happened in Noah and Kensley's life there is a spark still there and they have a strong connection. I voluntarily reviewed a copy ...more

I really loved the story! Kensley and Noah were so true to life, so full of love and angst, fear and strength that I would have loved to be their friend.
The sadness and guilt of both survivors were so controlling at times that they forgot to live and their being together reminded that exactly that truth - the living should be living! They should have a full life to honor the dead too!
I loved the touching moments of grief and pure emotions!
The style was great and perfect for the story in my mind!

The story between Noah and Kensley is so emotional that I had to push myself to finish at times but never wanted to quit. The small town setting is warm and fuzzy. The headspace of these characters is uncomfortable to think about. They are realistic and hauntingly familiar. It is hard for these two people to see past their own feelings to realize that they need each other. This one really twisted me up.

Noah came back from Afghanistan with a bum shoulder and PTSD and everyone treats him like a hero and every girl wants him but one and she is the one he wants. Kensey lost everything in that war and she is angry that he made it. And then one night they are stuck in a snowstorm in a cabin and find that what they have should be cherished.

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Tmonique Stephens; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I cant wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

This was a really deep emotional read that covers not only PTSD from a soldiers side, but kind of the side of those that list loved ones. It has heart, grit, true emotions, and some humorous moments too. It was a really good read that is very touching.

Passion changes everything, especially for the characters Tmonique writes about in her Descendants of Ra, UnHallowed, and Plain Jane series. Flawed characters who reflect the emotional baggage we all carry interests her the most. She writes complicated stories for complicated people.
