Love You So Madly (Love You So Stories #2) by Tara Lain 5*
BLURB: Ben Shane has it all… and he’d like to give some of it back. While he loves his job heading a foundation that funds worthy causes around the world, his engagement to one of America’s wealthiest men leaves him feeling more like a trophy wife than a valued partner. The first warning that his relationship might not be designed to last is his irresistible lust for Dusty Kincaid, the golden-haired, bright-eyed handyman for his company.
Though Dusty is odd for a twenty-three-year-old—no liquor, no sugar, and he can’t even drive—the more Ben gets to know Dusty, the more he admires him. But is Ben going to give up a guy who drives a Ferrari for one who takes the bus? He must be mad. Dusty knows he and Ben can never work.
After all, Ben’s perfect… and Dusty isn’t. But Ben might surprise everyone with proof that he’s only madly in love.
My Review: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I love how Tara can put so much into such a short story. In this case it was a sweet, heartwarming story that felt like it was just the right length. I liked how Ben reacted to both Alan and Dusty and, after searching his heart, opted for the right choice for himself. I also liked how the reasons for Dusty and his oddness were revealed in a natural way within the flow of the story and not as a hook for the whole story.
I hope that Tara gives us a third book in the Love You So series and that it will be following other characters from this book, as the inclusion of Jesse and Craig from book one was a delight to me. Oh and one last thing, that cover is absolutely magic.
