I guarantee Benny Turner will make you swoon!

Whilst Other Side of Love can be read as a standalone, and chronologically is the earliest story in the series, we have already met Benny and Sarah as side characters and main characters in previous books. There are also some 'loose ends' in this book and some massive hints that there is at least one more book in the pipeline for this couple. Which is great news since they are such a fantastic and amazing pair.

Sarah and Benny were best friends at coll

This is a part of the Different Kind of Love Series but can be read as a standalone book. This is Benny and Sarah's story. They were best friends until she confided some of her dark secrets to him. Fate brings them back together. This book is overflowing with drama and emotion. Well developed characters who are filled with turmoil and conflict. An interesting read. I read an arc and voluntarily chose to review. ...more

God, I believe Benny and Sarah are one of my favorite couples of all time. From the first time we met them as supporting characters I wanted to know more about them and their on again and off again romance. Mainly, because I personally have never experienced that push and pull; once I’m done, I’m done. So I find the forgiveness and trusting factors of that dynamic really fascinating.

Then earlier this year we received a deeper look at them during “present day”. Their chemistry almost burnt up my

We have all made mistakes, some more risky than others, but when an unscrupulous monster attempts to control Sarah by exposing her secrets, her whole family becomes involved. After an accident, Benny walks into Sarah's clinic to have his arm stitched up, and she has to face the other man who knows her darkest secrets. Sarah finds her life being upended once more. The romance they shared at university flares up again as Sarah first helps to take care of Benny, and then as he protects Sarah from t ...more

I loved this story , I loved Benny and Sarah, the complex characters, the way she described the rise of emotion, the feelings change, the hope, anger, excitement, fear, shame. I love hos she wrote about Sarah's need to expore her kinky side, to find trust in a man, It was refreshing because it was filed with love
I loved that the author went to the theme of revege porn, of describing the hell Sarah lived, of couse I would have prefered a closure with his family relationship,knowing what hapenned

This was an interesting story to read. Sarah & Benny were friends until she made an interesting request & he turned her down. They each went their separate ways until fate brought them back together. Over the years, Sarah has trusted the wrong person & is being stalked by them. Benny has gone on for advanced degrees & avoided making the commitment his family thought he’d make.

I really didn’t expect this story to go the way it did. I was surprised which family stepped up to support their family

Wow! Loved Benny and Sarah’s story.

Sarah is hiding from her past mistakes but the biggest mistake she ever made was telling Benny her darkest secrets one drunken night two years ago. They haven’t spoken since. So when he shows up unexpected at the medical centre where she works, she cannot help but be drawn to him again. Can she ever reveal her true feelings to him and will she be able to move on from the mistakes from her past?

Great read! This book has love, family feuds, suspense and drama all

Loves Run

Benny and Sarah always shared a connection, were best friends. Somehow, through a miscommunication, they drifted apart.
On a chance remeeting, they rekindled what they had.
Benny had unfinished business to take care of, which he did. In doing so, he caused some hurt feelings, he needs to sort them out. Sarah’s past was trying to catch up with her, and ruin her present.
Do Benny and Sarah have what it takes to stay together?
I loved this story. It was quick paced, hot and spicy, loving and

👥 A Southwest love story with heat and drama🌵

Very atmospheric, with details of Southwestern and Navajo customs and cuisine, I liked the main plot but the romance was overshadowed at times by the food! I liked and connected with main characters Benny and Sarah and the story's well-written. I have read a good number of Liz Durano novels and, though it doesn't rank among my favorites, the story, particularly Benny's tense relationship with his family and Sarah's persecution by an ex-boy

Is just as precious!

Wow! I've always enjoyed Liz's books and Sarah and Benny have always called out to me to read their story. I was so excited when Liz said she was finally telling their story! And what an amazing story it is too! We see their first meeting whilst at college, how their love takes shape and what they finally become. With some heartache thrown in and a major threat to overcome, Liz gives us the story we've dreamed of and a couple you just can't help but love! This was more than a

Another great book by Liz Durano. I have to say Liz must have researched to the moon and back for this story. I found the Native American reservation element to this book every bit as gripping as the romance and the storyline itself.
Now the way this story ended I am confident I haven’t read the last of Benny & Sarah. Which I am thankful for because there are a few unanswered questions rattling around in my head right now.
I just hope I don’t have to wait too long for my questions to be answered.

A lot has happened to Sarah and Benny in the two years since they saw each other and there are a lot of roadblocks in their way but they are made for each other.

This is a great story full of heart and emotion with some suspense thrown in.

Benny and Sarah are endgame. But now we get to take the journey how it all started, some of things we have seen in the story we get to see and some of the steps they took to be together. And there will be another story to see that will complete their journey.
