Review: Forever Kinda Love & Flirting With Love by Clara Stone

Forever Kinda Love

By Clara Stone

Life’s. Little. Surprises. 

The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too. 

Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for. 

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall? 

Two lives. 

One story. 

And an unexpected journey to falling in love.

My Review:

Ms. Stone contacted me about reviewing her books and I'm so glad that she did because - OMG - I absolutely LOVED Forever Kinda Love!! I fell in love with the synopsis and it didn't take me long into reading the book to fall in love with it too. It was just fantastic and I can't wait to get started on the next book!

I loved Ace as the heroine! She's a strong, sweet, smart, and kind, good girl. She's just sweet and I know I've already said that, but she really is sweet and light and pure, but she also has a feisty, sassy side to her too. Ace isn't perfect and she has her moments, but she is a brave heroine and she will make you proud. 

Now I loved Ace, but I LOOOVED Heath!! I swear that boy-man completely melted my heart and stole it - he's so sweet and wonderful! He is light and playful and just so darn cute with Ace that for a minute I thought he wouldn't be the possessive-growly-she's-mine type, but, boy, is he ever! I just can't tell you how amazing he is, you need to meet him for yourself! 

Forever Kinda Love is a heartbreaking, beautiful story. It's more sweet than steamy and I usually prefer my books steamy, but I honestly didn't mind with this one. It actually made more sense staying sweet, not that I would've minded if it hadn't. Forever Kinda Love is amazing - it made me cry and yell and laugh and smile - I just "forever kinda loved" it!! 

Forever Kinda Love is a standalone told from both Heath and Ace's POV with a HEA ending!

Flirting With Love

Hudson and Blake Lovelly lead a charmed life—successful careers, loving family, beautiful home. Now, on the eve of their daughter’s birth, they’re counting their blessings. Life wasn’t always so generous . . .

Fifteen years ago, seventeen-year-old Blake Voss walked into Cranbrook Preparatory High to participate in the school year’s most-prestigious debate competition. She never expected to fall for the pretentious, golden-haired boy on the opposing debate team, and he never expected to be ensnared by the quick-witted prankster with a heart of gold.

Their mutual love for joking pretense soon leads them to pull their biggest prank yet--pretending to be in love. But when danger threatens, Hudson can’t conceal his growing affection. He’ll do anything to be with Blake, even if it means risking his heart to protect her.

They didn’t plan for their friendship to grow into a love story. But sometimes, all it takes is a little Hope.

This powerful companion to Forever Kinda Love tells the history of Hudson and Blake’s relationship. Laced with haunting emotion and beautiful sentiment, this is a tale about overcoming even the darkest moments, reminding us all to love more. 

Give more. 

Without regrets.

My Review:

I was so excited to read Hudson and Blake's story after meeting them in Forever Kinda Love and I loved them even more in Flirting With Love!! I positively loved seeing how they came together and learning all about them! It was very fun and entertaining and I really enjoyed reading this book! 

Blake is the bomb! She's an awesome heroine full of fire and determination. She's stubborn and smart and independent and a total fighter. Blake is the absolute best girl to have in your corner and I loved, loved, loved her! 

And Hudson, oh my gosh, Hudson! He's so sweet and cute and understanding. He's utterly devoted to Blake, he's protective, and he's the type of guy to go the extra mile for the people he cares about. He is a strong, wonderful hero and even though Heath is still my favorite, I really loved Hudson too! 

Flirting With Love broke my heart, but it made me laugh and smile a lot too. It's a sweet, beautiful read that had me holding my breath and had my heart racing. It was excellent, I loved it, and I absolutely CANNOT wait for Harrington's story!! 

Flirting With Love is a standalone, it's told from Hudson and Blake's POV, and I loved their HEA ending!
