An Alisa Release Day Review: Love You So Madly (Love You So Stories #2) by Tara Lain


Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Ben Shane has it all… and he’d like to give some of it back. While he loves his job heading a foundation that funds worthy causes around the world, his engagement to one of America’s wealthiest men leaves him feeling more like a trophy wife than a valued partner. The first warning that his relationship might not be designed to last is his irresistible lust for Dusty Kincaid, the golden-haired, bright-eyed handyman for his company.

Though Dusty is odd for a twenty-three-year-old—no liquor, no sugar, and he can’t even drive—the more Ben gets to know Dusty, the more he admires him. But is Ben going to give up a guy who drives a Ferrari for one who takes the bus? He must be mad. Dusty knows he and Ben can never work. After all, Ben’s perfect… and Dusty isn’t. But Ben might surprise everyone with proof that he’s only mad in love.

I read the first book in this series when it first came out years ago and loved it, I was excited to see the author is now continuing the series because I love a sweet shorter story almost all the time.  Ben is drawn to Dusty when he first sees him and finds that he enjoys his company much more than his fiancé.  Dusty has been a bit sheltered due to his health concerns but embraces the chance to spend some time with Ben.

I still can’t figure out why Ben said yes to Alan’s proposal, he doesn’t seem to really have anything in common or enjoy spending time with him, it may just have been flattery at the time.  I did love his openness to Dusty and how willing he is to adapt his life to someone who actually matters to him.  I loved seeing Dusty finally get something good in his life and you could see how he didn’t want anyone to feel bad for him.  Both of these characters were wonderful and it was easy to connect and see what they were feeling.  I can’t wait to read more of these stories as they come out.

The cover art by Reese Dante is great and I love the visual of Dusty.
