Review: The Way You Love Me by Miranda Liasson
Gabby Langdon has always tried to make people happy. She even went to law school to please her father, and now she's a highly successful-albeit bored-attorney. But Gabby secretly dreams of being a writer, so for once she does something for herself-she signs up for a writing class taught by best-selling novelist Caden Marshall. There's only one problem: her brooding, sexy professor is a distraction she can't afford if she's finally going to get the life she truly wants.
Recently divorced and suffering from the world's worst case of writer's block, Caden is in Angel Falls to get his life back on track. He's focused on teaching and providing a stable and loving home for his young daughter, Ava. The last thing he needs is to jeopardize his new job, which means keeping plenty of distance between himself and his talented new student-no matter how tempted he is by Gabby's beauty, kind heart, or the sparks that fly whenever they're together.
I have to tell you that I think I like The Way You Love Me more then I did Then There Was You. And I really enjoyed Then There Was You. So to me that's saying a lot.
I think you'll also fall in love with these two characters. Both have their issues, but it's how they deal with them that you've got to respect. Gabby comes off as a flighty woman who can't settle. She jumps for the this to that. You wonder if she'll be able to ever get her act together and what's driving her.
As the book goes on you start to figure out why she's the way she is and that flighty is the last word you should use, or I guess that was me, not you who used flighty. Ha!
Caden is another fish. He's a father of a little girl and for those that follow me they know that's a trigger for me. Love me a single father.
He comes off as a asshole in the beginning but just like Gabby you find there is more to him that meets the eye.
I really enjoyed how these two figured out they are in love. It's not a straight shoot but when it does happen it's well worth it. I liked how at times you didn't know if who you thought of them was right or if they really were the was they came off. Love when characters have depth.
Layers are what make a romance.
The Caden's daughter adds even more to the story and you also visit with some of the characters you enjoyed from the first book in the series.
If you haven't yet started the Angel Falls series you really should. It has a small town feel with a dash of city in it. If you've read The Way You Love Me or anything else by Miranda Liasson I'd love to hear your thoughts.
