Title: A Precious Love
Author: Karen Ferry
Series: Believe #3.5
Release Date: December 11, 2017
Trish Lawson never thought she’d meet a man willing to put up with her type of crazy, but Alex Darrow might end up surprising her.
Alex was never meant to become my lover. On top of being hot as sin, he is gentle, sweet, and honest – not the kind of fun I was looking for. But fate has other plans for us, entwining a thread around our souls and pulling us closer at every turn. Soon, I start to believe that we might have a future together.
That our love is precious.
In the end, fate decides to play the ultimate trick on us, and we are left bleeding and in torment.
The pain becomes too much to bear, and I attempt to sever the tie between us.
The only problem is that Alex won’t let me.
He turns my body into flames of lust while his lips speak of his love for me.
My heart still aches from the loss we share, but I don’t know if I can keep resisting him.
Karen Ferry serves up plenty of heat, heartache, and hope with her new novella, A Precious Love. Having been teased with hints of their relationship in Time to Learn, I was eager to get my hands on Trish and Alex’s story. Karen Ferry definitely didn’t disappoint, delivering the kind of feels that make your heart stutter and soar. I appreciated the intense, immediate connection this couple seemed to share and adored the ease of their flirtatious banter. Trish was every bit the feisty, independent woman I knew she would be, and Alex was downright swoon-worthy in his romantic pursuit of her.
“Maybe I am a little bit crazy, but that’s part of my appeal, babe. Just try to go with it, yeah?”
Due to the length limitations of a novella, the author jumped forward in time at several points throughout the story. While I appreciated the opportunity to see the breadth of Trish and Alex’s relationship, it lost a little something in overall depth. I had a hard time understanding how deeply and solidly they fell for one another when we didn’t get to see them building that part of their relationship. Instead of just being told of their growth and emotional development, I would have preferred to experience it for myself. That isn’t to say that I didn’t feel this story all the way through, I did. I just wanted to feel it as deeply as I’ve felt the author’s other work.
“No matter what she says, this woman is mine.”
Trish and Alex certainly have their work cut out for them in this novella. Karen Ferry put these two through the emotional wringer and she pulled me right along with them. This author has definitely mastered the emotional sucker punch. A Precious Love has humor, heart, and just the right amount of heat, making for an emotional but entirely enjoyable read. The author’s writing continues to show fantastic growth and I found losing myself in her fictional world absolutely effortless. Trish and Alex were the perfect pair, pushing each other in all the right ways. I hope we’ll see more of them in the future. A sweet addition to the Believe series, A Precious Love is a quick, memorable read that will leave you wanting more!
