5 GOEY STICKY BUBBLEGUM STARS … I loved every single moment of this book, it’s got it all!

“I’ve been waiting, Megan and after last night, I’m done waiting. It’s time for me to help you see.”

Bleeding Love is Liam and Megan’s story…

Megan lost her husband Jack a few years ago and since then she has been going through the motions of raising her beautiful five year old daughter Molly, writing and existing. (We met Megan briefly in Dani and Cohen’s book Unexpected Fate, book 1 in the Hope Town series.) She’s not really living and even though she has found a great new group of friends that have truly become more like family, she never really lets’ anyone in. She never discusses her past, she’s secretive and a little defensive when asked about her marriage to Jack. She keeps herself locked away emotionally and Liam Beckett is becoming impatient waiting for her to wake up from her grief induced slumber. Liam has been drawn to Megan for a long time, and while he totally understands her grief, he’s now realizing that unless her hand is forced Megan is never again going to be open to love. Being that Liam is positive that Megan is his “one” makes it even more impossible for him to sit back and idly wait for her to wake up and see what is directly in front of her and has been for quite some time. The night of Dani and Cohen’s wedding brings passion and the walls seem to vanish between Liam and Megan at long last, but soon enough morning comes and they are right back where they began, or at least that’s how it seems…

“And for one night I let myself forget the weights that have held me down. For one night I lived in the now. I allowed myself to open up and feel all those things that I have always been convinced I would never have. For one night I felt the promise of more and it scared the crap out of me with the power of those emotions.”

Liam reminds me so much of his father in this book and this series is allowing me to re-visit some of my all-time favorite characters while also discovering new ones. I fell in love with Liam from the very start, it’s impossible not to. He’s determined, sensitive, incredibly thoughtful, passionate, sexy, and wonderful with Megan’s daughter Molly. He melted my heart so many times; I swooned and sighed over and over again. How Megan ever managed to resist him for as long as she did boggles my mind. But she has/had her reasons and when all is revealed, it all makes sense, it’s heartbreaking actually.

“This ends now,” I state. “What does?” “The games, baby. No more avoiding me.”

Bleeding Love is in a way a second chance romance, its sweet, funny, sexy, beautiful, heartfelt and emotional. The writing is fabulous and the story travels along effortlessly. Before I knew it I was finished, and left wanting more. Liam and Megan are impossible not to love. Being able to experience Megan overcome all of her worst fears, facing and overcoming her past and finally being able to move forward in her life is incredibly moving. This story will make your heartache, race, and swell. It has the perfect balance of feels combined with enough steamy bits to make you blush and flush. It’s just a fabulous read from start to finish. I love that even though Sloan is giving us a brand new series, we are given glimpses into what happens after the happily ever afters in all of the Corps Security relationships. She never fails to give me a story that I can fall into and fall in love, and Bleeding Love did it all over again. I’m now totally and completely hooked on this new series and I cannot wait for the next book. If you loved the Corps Security series you’re going to devour the Hope Town books, guaranteed!

“A love worth having is worth fighting for.”
