RELEASE REVIEW: Fearless For Love by Clara Stone

 Title: Fearless For Love by Clara Stone
Series: Lovelly, #3
Publication Date: April 15, 2016

Harrington Lovelly has always been the black sheep of his family. A spontaneous troublemaker with sarcastic charm and good looks to spare, he’s the wild card, the brother no one knew how to control. And he likes it that way. Now, on the cusp of turning twenty-five, he’s fighting for what he believes is right, fighting to save his best friend Fisher from the most notorious underground fight club in Florida. He’s fearless . . . in everything but love.

Twenty-three-year-old Jessica Owens is done throwing her life away for a promise she made to her deceased father. Leaving behind everything she’s ever known in the hopes of starting a new life is the single most daring act of rebellion she’s ever done, but she’s determined. This time, her past won’t haunt her. This time, she’ll get it right. This time, she might even fall in love.

Neither Jessica nor Harrington know what fate has in store for them, but when Harrington’s efforts to save his friend bring him to the very town Jessica escaped to, they’ll find their paths crossing in a classic case of being in the right place at the right time. And this time, they’ll have to fight hard to rise above everything standing in their way. Together.

Gritty, action-packed, and breathtaking, Fearless For Love brings a darker edge to the series, while still keeping the signature, heart-wrenching emotion of its predecessors. A story at once akin and completely unlike that of the first two installments, it asks the question: how do you love, when love is what you fear most?

*This book is a standalone within the Lovelly series and is not intended for readers under 18, due to language, violence, and subject matter.

"I can’t promise you eternity of happiness, Jess, or that I won’t keep things from you. But I can promise you one thing. I’ll always do everything in my power to keep you happy, to try my best to come home to you.”
“Why?” I ask, my throat feeling heavy with emotion. “Why me?”
“Because you make me forget about all my worries for the few minutes we’re together. You make me want to risk everything for a chance to see where this goes, where we go.”
“Because something about the way your eyes sparkle when I flirt with you makes me happy. And if that isn’t a good enough reason to be with someone, then I don’t know what is.”

Sonja's Review

Ms. Stone gave Hudson and Blake their HEA at the of Flirting With Love, but she definitely left us, or at least I know I was, wondering what was going on with Harrington and if he was in some serious trouble. It left me eager for his book and although he wasn't in the forefront of my book mind all the time, I never truly forgot about him either. So I was very excited and didn't even think to hesitate when Ms. Stone asked me if I would be interested in helping out with the release of Fearless For Love! It was even better than I expected and more than I could have hoped for - it was simply amazing and is absolutely my favorite book in the Lovelly series! 

Jessica is one tough cookie and so much stronger than she gives herself credit for sometimes. I knew she escaped from a bad situation and when I learned about all that she went through, I couldn't help but admire and respect her. Jessica is strong and courageous, sassy and sweet, and kind and genuine. Of course, she's not perfect and I wasn't always thrilled with her when she resisted and had doubts about my main man Harrington, but at the same time I could understand where she was coming from and I couldn't hold against - especially not once decided she was all in with him. Jess is an incredible heroine and I completely loved her! 

It's been quite awhile since I read the Lovelly books and I can't remember everything about Harrington from them, but if I remember one thing at all - it's that he really made me love him. It was a huge part of the reason I was so excited to read his story and it came as no surprise to me when I fell completely and totally head-over-heels in love with him! Harry is one hundred percent my kind of guy - he's c**ky and arrogant but in an amusing way - really, he's just funny period and had me laughing all the time, he's fiercely loyal and protective and he has a heart of gold. Harry is thoughtful, sweet, heart melting, and swoon worthy and and I know that he will steal your heart just like he did Jessica's and mine! 

Fearless For Love made me laugh, made me cry, and made me so mad I wanted to punch some of the characters at times. It gave me all the heart feels from the heartbreak and the heart shattering to the heart melting and the heartwarming. It made my heart pound and race and there was no part of me that wasn't invested in Harry and Jess' story. It was beautiful and moving, full of depth, passion, heartache, and a love that truly touched me and made it the best book in the series by a landslide! 

Fearless For Love is a standalone, it's told from Harry and Jess' POV, they get their well-deserved happily-ever-after, and I CANNOT WAIT for the next book!

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.
