Hudson and Blake Lovelly lead a charmed life—successful careers, loving family, beautiful home. Now, on the eve of their daughter’s birth, they’re counting their blessings. Life wasn’t always so generous . . .
Fifteen years ago, seventeen-year-old Blake Voss walked into Cranbrook Preparatory High to participate in the school year’s most-prestigious debate competition. She never expected to fall for the pretentious, golden-haired boy on the opposing debate team, and he never expected to be ensnared by the quick-witted prankster with a heart of gold.
Their mutual love for joking pretense soon leads them to pull their biggest prank yet--pretending to be in love. But when danger threatens, Hudson can’t conceal his growing affection. He’ll do anything to be with Blake, even if it means risking his heart to protect her.
They didn’t plan for their friendship to grow into a love story. But sometimes, all it takes is a little Hope.
This powerful companion to Forever Kinda Love tells the history of Hudson and Blake’s relationship. Laced with haunting emotion and beautiful sentiment, this is a tale about overcoming even the darkest moments, reminding us all to love more.
*This book is a standalone within a series
Sure, Blake and I started this little charade as a prank. A game. Flirting with love. But what's between us now is something more.
Blake and Hudson are embarking on a new journey in their life: parenthood. But before there was marriage and a baby carriage; there was a boy and girl and a gaggle of pranks. There was also a faux relationship between the two. And this is their story.
This book was so darn cute. I was smitten with the storyline and all the fun these two characters had throughout. I loved how their fresh and fearless friendship turned into something more. It had my heart smiling most every page. The romance was written to perfection and I couldn’t get enough. The Lovely boys sure are sweet.
Then there was the not so good of the book. There were times that reality would sink in and it couldn't be all about the games and first love flutters. My heart hurt during these times. But it really made the book great even though it was sad to read during those times.
Fantastic story, beautiful romance- FLIRTING WITH LOVE is a must read book! Even though this can be read as a standalone, I recommend FOREVER KINDA LOVE. You have to meet Heath Lovely!! 5 Stars!
