RRR presents... LOVE NOTES by Aimee Brown - REVIEW!

It may look like a Romcom.  It may sound like a Romcom.  Okay, so it IS all those things and a Romcom, but it's also a bit spicy, a bit sassy, and totally unique, just like the characters housed between the pages.  Allow me to explain, as we dive a little deeper into today's Rachel's Random Resources blog tour guest and Boldwood ebook of choice...

Love Notes
Aimee Brown

About the book...
Mercy Alexander doesn’t believe in love, let alone love at first sight.

There’s one sure fire way of steering clear of heartbreak, and that’s not to get your heart involved in the first place. So what is that irritating flutter she feels every time she sees Brooks Hudson, and why is she finding him so hard to ignore?

Brooks Hudson can’t understand where he’s going wrong.

Doting single father to six-year-old Ali, supportive co-parent with his ex, much-loved friend and respected colleague, not to mention he’s smoking hot. So why is he constantly being dumped, told in no uncertain terms he’s ‘too nice’? Since when was being nice a crime?

Mercy is in serious need of someone to restore her faith in men, and Brooks needs a girl he likes to stick around long enough for him to believe in love again. But when Mercy’s past threatens to remind her of everything she’s scared of, will love be enough to save the day?


She's got Daddy issues, and I don't mean that purely the way it sounds.  Hers come from childhood trauma thanks to the negligence of those that should have been caring for her not just about their own devious activities and preservation.  Seriously, I can't even begin to explain how much I loathe the man that gave her half of her DNA.  Just...NO.

He's got relationship issues, but again, not in the way you might think.  It's not that he won't commit, he just tends to fall to far too fast...which for some can be just as much of a red flag.  He's not clingy...though with his looks and mannerisms, I'm not certain I'd mind...but he does like the stability of couple status, especially in his high tension world.

Separate, they are seriously challenged...but together?  They make sweet music...and get your head out of the gutter!  I'm talking about from the heart.  Okay, so there are definitely sexy times, plenty of flirtation, and even a bit of naughty talk, but it just adds to the overall chemistry, the hopefully-happily-ever-after we're chasing...and so are they even if they don't quite understand it just yet.

I loved Mercy for her take no prisoners attitude, her take what you get lifestyle, and her say what's on her mind confidence.  She cared what others thought about her, but not enough to let it stop her from being herself.  The thing is...I loved Brooks just as much!  I could tell from the moment they reconnected from across the room that SOMETHING was going to happen...and not just because we were at the start of the book.  You could feel the sizzle right on the page.  You just knew you were in for a wild ride and these two were just the ones to take you through it.  Seeing her find the courage to fight her demons was tough, especially since they were given to her not of her own creation.  Watching Brooks with Mercy tied my heart in knots...then add to that his time with his adorable daughter, and you can't help but melt!  The cast of crazy friends adds to the flavor, and shows just how perfect they really are for each other.  Even the interfering but well intentioned ex-wife worked for the story...when normally even the idea of the combination would be cringe worthy.  

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the read and I think Contemporary Romance fans as well as Romcom lovers will be highly enticed too!  With characters you won't soon forget, a comeuppance that was decades in the making, and a happily-ever-after befitting our here and now, there's no reason to put this one on your backburner list.
