Sophie Rawlings has been the party girl for years. Drowning herself in everything but the one man she truly loves. She’s pushed her feelings deep down, knowing he doesn’t return them. The only other man to ever make her feel has suddenly become part of her self-appointed family and she’s not sure where that leaves her. Having been attacked recently, she’s sworn off guys for good.

So what will she do when she suddenly becomes the centre of attention? 

What’s worse, is that not all attention is good. Sometimes the wrong attention can be life-altering…sometimes the wrong attention can extinguish the life you lead in the blink of an eye.

Favorite Quotes:


“Please don’t breathe on me, you’re bleaching my hair,”

“I don’t know everything that happened to you and likewise you don’t know what has happened to me, but we have time to find out.  We have time to talk, to laugh, to cry, to heal.  We have time to love, Soph.”

“Carlie doesn’t like me.  Carlie, actually hates me.  I think she’d be happy if I were to be attacked and eaten by rabid seagulls.”

“Chuckling he kisses my lips again, still looking at me he whispers, ‘My life can start now.’”

“Whoa lady, who lit your tampon string?”

“You’ll always be delicate to me because you are irreplaceable.”


My Review:


Love Resisted is one of those rare occasions when the second book in a series is superior to the first.  While the first book – Love Reflection – was well written, Love Resisted is more.  More intrigue, more steam, more passion, more humor, more comfortable, more story twists, and more dark secrets revealed.  With that in mind, I cannot wait to see what Ms. Macdonald does with book 3.  And swoon, Saul is my new BBF!
