Review: Just Love - Prescott Lane

Just Love Cover.jpeg
Just Love 

by Prescott Lane
Release Date: July 9, 2019
Genre: Standalone, Contemporary Romance

There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.
This is ours.
The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister.
That goes double when she’s his little sister.
It was just supposed to be fun.
She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.
Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should’ve been a warning that she’s a hopeless romantic. That should’ve clued me in that she believes love conquers all.
But there are some things that love can’t fix. I’m one of them.
She thinks love is the answer.
But love is the reason I let her go.

4.5 Stars
Rhett Bennett and Ainsley Rose have a lifetime of memories together, with Ainsley's older brother Brody relying on him to help parent her after their parent's pass away. Along with Brody's girlfriend, the four of them have been inseparable since their youth, the only rule being that they always protect Ainsley and she's always treated as the little sister. Little sisters grow up though and even Rhett, the womanizer, can't deny that he wants to know where the spark they share could go. Romances aren't always just fun though, even Ainsley's fairy tale romance ideas can't save love.

"They always say when you're in love you glow, but no one ever talks about what you look like when you lose love, when it punches you in the gut."

I picked up Just Love, fell in love with the gorgeous cover, and immediately grabbed a pile of tissues and settled in for a cry fest. Prescott Lane is one of my favorite angsty romance writers, she always knows how to pull emotions right out of me. Told from dual perspectives, Just Love follows Ainsley (A. Rose) and Rhett as they tackle the past and present of their love story that never stood a chance. Ainsley is the believer in love, fairytales, and princes that sweep brides off their feet, meanwhile Rhett believes in beautiful women, fun times, and fast flings. The rule that you never go after your best friend's sibling should hold him back, but it doesn't and we see them connect in a beautiful way before everything goes up in flames. I had absolutely no idea about the journey we were going to go on with these two, Prescott Lane totally surprised me with the twists in this. Just Love tackles difficult topics relating to love, loss, hopes, dreams, futures, and the perseverance each of those require. It's a beautiful, epic, heart wrenching story that I'm thankful I made the time for.

I will say that the dual perspective and switching from past to present was very confusing at first and I found myself having to be extra careful to check the chapter headings prior to reading. For me this took away from the reading, especially when I realized a few chapters in that I was so lost in the story that I had to start over. Once you get into the swing of things though it moves along quite smoothly, so I only deducted half a star for that small bit of confusion.

"This is the exact way we started. Are we starting over?"

Just Love is a romance roller coaster ride, the kind you line up for again and again despite the feelings it pulls from you. Prescott Lane once again delivers a passionate, heartfelt romance that readers are sure to love.
