Review by Lisa: Loving Her by C.M. Hutton

Boring, but completely gorgeous. That was my first impression of him. My next two thoughts were ‘pompous ass’ and ‘cocky jerk.’ And, I had the glorious pleasure of sharing a table with him for the entire night. He didn’t speak, didn’t grunt….he just nodded and stared. If I weren’t taking my bosses place at this dinner, I’d have found another place to sit and escape Ryan Daniels.

‘Absolutely beautiful’ was what I thought when I found her at my table at the Ad Execs quarterly dinner. She wore a black strapless dress and exuded confidence from every part of her. I nodded to her, but didn’t speak. I really didn’t have much to say anyway.
I couldn’t quit staring and had to excuse myself at one point to stand across the room and watch her. It was a strange, unwelcome feeling I was having about this stunning woman.
It had been five years….five years since Kristen…..and I still couldn’t move on. That kind of hurt you just don’t get over so easily and I wasn’t even sure that I wanted to get over it. But, here I was, completely intrigued and unable to stop thinking about Jen Bailey.

Lisa's Review:                                       3.75  STARS!!!

"My life has been filled with people who have hurt me, some intentional, some unintentional, but the hurt felt the same." -Jen

Loving her is somewhat of a love triangle. The characters have tender hearts and they are afraid of getting hurt, once again, for different reasons. They are weary of taking risks at new beginnings, which leads to a bit of game playing. Hearts get broken, especially when tragedy strikes.

This story is a light and sweet read. It has its somber moments, but nothing majorly heavy. The ending did bring tears to my eyes, though. I immediately liked Jen's character and could relate to her insecurities a bit. As the story moves along, she did strike a nerve with me though. I couldn't understand her reasoning  and actions with certain circumstances. She once again grew on my towards the ending. I absolutely loved Ryan the whole was through the story. He is a misunderstood, bit of a recluse, man. He has some major pain in his life and I wish I could give him a huge hug. Now on to Jack... I can't stand this guy. He is such a jerk! He does change a bit, but I couldn't find myself liking him.

" I can't stop thinking about you, can't stop wanting you, and I won't share you." - Ryan
