Settled in New York City, Ryan and Julia Matthews seek to enjoy their idyllic newlywed life together. Julia’s high-profile job at Vogue and Ryan’s promising career in medicine will surely set them up for everything they could ever want.

When a scuffle at Ryan’s hospital puts his life in danger, a colleague steps in to save him but is critically injured in the process. In a heroic and unwavering effort, Ryan manages to save her life, but her injuries irrevocably change her future forever.

What happens next will push Ryan beyond human endurance, when he is forced to decide how much he will pay for his new friendship and Julia, what she is willing to sacrifice in order to spare herself the unspeakable pain of watching someone else try to replace her in Ryan’s heart.

For there is nothing more sacred than… A Love Like This…

EXCERPT: 

Once again, it was after midnight when I arrived home and as usual, I was beat. My back ached. After Jane and I returned from our dinner break, we had an automobile accident and five victims, three of them critical, one a three-year-old boy. He made it, but his mother did not. I’d worked on her tirelessly for twenty-five minutes when she flat-lined, but it was useless. She wasn’t wearing a seat belt, and her frontal lobe was mashed into the windshield at fifty miles per hour.

Julia stirred when I moved around the dark bedroom. “Ryan, are you here?” Her voice was soft and laced with sleep.

“Yes, baby,” I answered, reaching out to rub her back gently through the blanket. We kept it cool in the bedroom; cooler than the rest of the apartment. Julia liked the thick comforter and snuggling close to me, but I was always warm, “Don’t wake up. I’ll come to bed soon.” My fingers played in the dark strands of her hair.

She was on her stomach and turned her face toward me on her pillow. “How was your night?”

“Busy. Not great. Had a car accident victim that didn’t make it.”

“Oh… I’m sorry, honey.” Julia’s eyes glittered in the dark and her hair was all messy. She reached for me and I took her hand in mine, bringing it to my lips. She was so soft and alluring, and dead tired or not, my dick stiffened and started to throb. I was sitting on the bed now and hoped Julia didn’t notice. It had been my plan to finish the note and then sleep, but my body had other ideas.

“I need to take a shower, babe.”

“No, you don’t.” Julia moved up onto her knees and sat on her heels. One hand-held the comforter to her breasts, but her shoulders were bare. I wanted to reach out and yank it from her, exposing the beauty I knew lay beneath. I leaned in to kiss the one closest to me. Her hand wound in my hair and began to gently scratch my scalp. It felt amazing and I let my forehead drop into the curve of her neck. “I can give you a massage.”

“Mmm…” I moaned. “That sounds like heaven, but if you touch me, I’ll wanna make love.”

MY THOUGHTS:

Loved it! I read the first two books last year and always thought that Ryan and Julia were almost TOO perfect. In this one, it is not so. We actually get to see the couple go through some hard times. We witness them struggling to find the perfect  balance between their marriage  and their chosen careers.  Adding  a third wheel to the mix to me made the tension of the story even better.

I loved how detailed the author described their relationship and their emotions. To me, the love, the romance and the passion was perfect. I can rarely find a series that depicts the true meaning of “soul mates” and to me, this one was pretty spot on. While there were multiple sex scenes (they are newlyweds)  the way it was written convinced me that these encounters were so much more than just something  physical.  To them it was something deeper.

If you asked me what  my favorite book trilogies are  this series is  near the top of my  list. In my opinion, A Love Like this was a beautiful conclusion to this trilogy. Definitely a must read for romance readers out there.
