“LOVE LIKE THIS creates a world of emotions and turmoil, describing superbly the mind of a young lady (Keira) and her struggles to balance her social life and her career. Sophie Love is a natural storyteller. LOVE LIKE THIS is very well written and edited, and I highly recommend it to the permanent library of all readers that appreciate a romance that can be savored during a weekend.”
--Books and Movie Reviews (Roberto Mattos)
Keira Swanson, 28, finds herself spending a magical Christmas with new her new boyfriend and his family in Sweden. How will their relationship end?
Keira returns to New York to discover, to her shock, that she has started a new trend in dating that is sweeping across the country—“Scandinavian romance”—and to find herself becoming a celebrity. Even more confusing, her sister gets engaged, and gives Keira constant advice. Overwhelmed, Keira takes solace when Christiano calls, and surprises herself when she agrees to take a week off and meet him on neutral ground: in Greece.
Her magazine is thrilled, and they want this to be her new assignment: can love work the second time around, in a different time and place, if you give it one more chance?
Greece is spectacular, filled with sun, ocean, ruins and romance. It is one of the most beautiful places she has ever been. But nothing can prepare Keira for her encounter with Cristiano—and the surprise that follows on its heels.
A wholesome romantic comedy that is as profound as it is funny, LOVE LIKE YOURS is book #5 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, and will keep you turning pages late into the night—and will make you fall in love with romance all over again.
“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….[This is] the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

Okay, Sophie Love, FINALLY the 5th book in the series lives up to the promise of the first! THANK YOU. I really enjoyed this story. The main character seems to have matured considerably, and is shedding the attitudes and behaviors that angered me before. I almost even like her! The descrptions of Greece had some depth, and were much more than a hurried list of foods & places. Like all the books in this series, there were some grammatical errors and a few misspelled words (or words missing altogether), but these issues were rare enough that they didn't interfere with my enjoyment of the story. MUCH improved, and I'm so glad! I would caution the writer to make sure that her plots retain some connection with reality (it's *highly* unrealistic that a writer of a few articles in a limited-readership travel magazine would suddenly become recognized by dozens of people on the street). And, it's also very important to have Keira's character clearly stand alone as a strong, independent, SECURE individual even when she is with her guy. She still has a penchant for codependency when she is in a relatonship! This book was richer, more cohesive, deeper, and more positive and fulfilling than any of the others in the series - even better than the first one, which I greatly enjoyed. I'm a sucker for a GOOD romance novel, and this one was darn good. I'm so pleased!! Ms. Love, thanks for all your efforts. PS: still a technical issue... I always set the page color on my Nook to dark grey, so that if I read at night in bed the light won't disturb anyone (!). When I do that with this book, strips of bright, blank white appear in in the dark background wherever words are supposed to be. Obviously unreadable, and very disconcerting when I want to read myself to sleep! :-)
I’ve read all the books in this series and have loved every one of them. This time it looks like Kiera finally found “the one.” Is it the happy ending we’re all hoping for? Who knows. Will this be the end of the series? Once again, who knows. No matter, I would urge all lovers of light romance to read Sophie Love’s series – they won’t let you down. The characters are very interesting, the scenes of Greece and of Santorini are enough to make you feel like you’re there. Sophie Love has become one of my favorite authors and I recommend her books to friends all the time.
