Review: The Way You Love Me by Miranda Liasson
Welcome to Angels Falls, a charming small town where hope, friendship, and family leads an unlikely couple to their happily ever after.
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.
So happy to finally get a chance to read The Way You Love Me. I love this series. This is the second book in Miranda Liasson’s Angel Falls series. Everything about this series so far has been so charming. The Langdon family, the small town setting, the relationships and the overall vibe just pulls you into the lives of these characters.
So, The Way You Love Me dove into Gabby’s life. I really liked Gabby. I saw so much of myself in her and really found her such a breath a fresh air. She is beautiful, smart and such the people pleaser. That doesn’t always give you the best out of life and she has sure had her woes, especially in the love department. Taking a leap for once doing something she loves for herself, she decides to explore her passion for writing with the aspirations of being an author. Lucky for her, the class she takes is being talk by someone who knows a bit about being a successful author but she discovers, it’s sort of hard to concentrate when your teacher is Mr. McDreamy.
Cade knows a little bit of success. He made his dream come true and became a bestselling author for his debut book. You’d think that would be a great thing except for his jealous ex wife. When she accused him of stealing her ideas and slandered his reputation, Cade found himself unable to continue his passion as a writer. After his divorce, and wanting to make a new start, Cade returns to Angel Falls and secures a teaching position to rejuvenate his life and make a stable life for him and his daughter. Then one day, walks into his life the key to unlock his greatest story.
I can’t say enough how reading one of Miranda’s books makes me feel so good. She brings her characters in your heart and life in a way that you want to know them. Besides Gabby, I love the familial influence supporting her in the book. Nonna is such a gem and brings something special with her wit and endearing charm. Small town stories are always so charming and the obstacles and struggles that both Gabby and Cade had between their insecurities and hurt from their previous relationships gave an authenticity to their journey built up a want to invest in them. In anticipation of the next book, thank goodness it will be about Rafe. We need to know why he won’t make the leap. Overall, wonderful addition to the series. By the way, you will get a treat with a novella in the book by the lovely Alison Bliss. Add this one to your TBR.
