A Love Like Yours (Love Story Duet #1)

A LOVE LIKE YOURS                              ROBIN HUBER

I've been a fighter all my life, even before I made it my career. As a kid in the foster system, I didn't have any other choice. But I've never fought for something--for someone--as hard as I fought for Lucy. I was her protector, her hero--and she was my everything. From the day we met, she made our grim days in Atlanta's notorious Brighton Park fade away--leaving only us.

But we broke each other's hearts, and we did a damn good job of it. A decade has passed since I last saw her, but not a day goes by that I don't think of her clear blue eyes or easy smile. So when I see her at one of my matches--and find out that she's engaged--I need to understand why she turned her back on me all those years ago. Because no matter what I do, no matter how many guys I knock out in the boxing ring, I can't forget her

So I'm not giving up on her. I'm not walking away.

I'm going to fight for Lucy one last time.
 

PAT'S REVIEW

First, let me say that there is a cliff hanger at the end of this book. The good news for me is that I have already begun to read the next book. On with the review. The two main characters of the story meet in the foster care system at a home. You are taken back through the story of how they meet and the bound that they formed. When they were in high school he a senior and she a junior life threw them both another curveball. He was arrested and then later ended up doing three years in prison. The reason behind all of this is explained and as the years pass on by she never went to see him or answer any letters. Now ten years have passed. He has become a champion boxer and she is getting ready to open a gallery with her art. She is also engaged to someone else. A man she never told where she came from or why she follows Sam’s career as a boxer so much. With an opportunity to go to the fight with two friends which is in New York, they live in Atlanta. She goes. What does not expect is how close they are to the ring. When later in the fight it looks like Sam is going to lose he hears the voice from his past. Lucy yelling to get up. He does and wins. Now on a quest to find her, he sees she actually was there from the video. Days later he ends up standing to look at her in her studio telling her things to need to be explained so he can move on. When he does she breaks down, for now, she feels like she let him down when he needed her. The rest of this book is about the two of them, her relationship with her fiancé and her desire to be with Sam but also to have this gallery. She has choices to make and not all of them will be easy. The scenes are intense the boxing matches are good. All of the characters are good in this book. This is an excellent story that surprised me but I could not put in down until I finished. Very much worth the read! I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
