Love Like This (Seven Shores #4), Melissa Brayden


“Follow me.” Spencer smiled. “Anywhere”

Hadley Cooper believes in happily-ever-afters with her whole heart. However, when her job as the assistant manager of Silhouette, a posh boutique on Rodeo Drive, is on the line, she realizes it’s time to pull her head out of the clouds and find a way to turn business around, and that just might mean partnering with the most stubborn up-and-coming fashion designer she’s ever encountered. 

Read my reviews of the other books in this series: Eyes Like Those (#1), Hearts Like Hers (#2), and Sparks Like Ours (#3)

I felt like I ought to read the last book to round things out in this series. I liked how Brayden mixed things up a little bit, delving into the realm of fashion with her two main characters and throwing in some different relationship twists. But I also don’t think she went far enough to make it stand out: all four main characters of the Seven Shores series have the same kind of romance and life goals: all four want to get married and have kids, and it would have been great to have seen a more atypical relationship explored.

You’re Spencer Adair and you’re going to do great things. I can feel that as plainly as I can feel how much this all hurts right now

Hadley is happy-go-lucky, idealistic, and desperately waiting for her “big bang” moment where she meets the one. Spencer doesn’t believe in “the one”, but she does believe in working hard on her fashion brand and it has definitely paid off. Spencer is one up and coming designer and Hadley is trying to snag her clothes for the high-brand clothing store she works at. When they meet, sparks immediately fly, but it becomes clear that the two have different outlooks on life.

Like the other books in the series, Love Like This is easy to read, relaxing and fun. I enjoyed the sweetness of the romance and the friendship moments. But it’s also really easy to guess where the plot is going and how everything will turn out. I want to be surprised! I want to truly be unsure about whether the characters will be able to work through their issues. 

My thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for an ARC of Love Like This
