Publication date: September 30th, 2014

Book summary:

"Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. She has her reasons - missing her family, losing her college scholarship. But then there's the reason Lauren can't admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend's older brother.

Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He's the guy who women love and leave, not the one who makes them think of forever - until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her.

Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with."


      Second book in Ann Aguirre new adult series was everything I wanted it to be and so much better from the previous one. Characters, writing, story - there is everything you need for a good new adult novel.

      As Long As You Love Me ( yes, it is another Backstreet Boys song) focuses on Lauren, one of the characters from the I Want It That Way. After failing all her classes and losing a scholarship, she returns back home - but the thing is Lauren is not the kind of girl we thought she was. And that is the main reason why I liked her so much. She felt more real and less like a character from a book. Reading about Rob, our leading man of the story, in the book summary, you have already build up certain expectations, right? Well, cross them all. Yes, he is gorgeous, he was a high school jock, but Ann Aguirre decided to avoid whole stereotype about perfect bad boy - including ever famous bad boy falls for good girl and changes his ways plot. Nope! You will be surprised. I know that I was.

     I will have to stop here or else there is danger of me spoiling the book for you, but let me just tell you this. I think that even hard core new adult haters will like As Long As You Love Me. It hits the shelves on September 30th, so mark it in your calendar and let me know what you thought about it.

Happy reading,

  2. I loved Rob and Lauren, they were so real. Like you said, no NA stereotypes in this series. I liked this one a little better than I want it that way, I really like this new aproach to the genre, no bad boys and blushing virgins. Great review :)

  3. I'm definitely marking it down! Thanks for the review ;)

  4. Nice to hear you loved this even more than the first one, Glass. I have the first one to review, so I'll check yours out now. :)

  5. YAY GLASS! I'm so glad this one was moere up your aley :) Lauren felt real? Well, I'm all about the realness, baby!! GIMMMEEE. Heh, I love good surprises (even though I don't really love surprises all that much). I'm glad you enjoyed this pretty :)

  6. This one sounds better than the first one. I love the sound of Lauren. Real characters are the best kind of characters. I definitely need to get a start on this series since I have the first book. :)
    Lovely review!

  7. As Long as You Love Me was one of my most favorite Backstreet Boys song back in the 90s *swoons* it's the perfect title as any, I daresay! ;) This sounds very promising. I know Rashika liked the first book enough to give it 4 stars. If this one was better, I know I'll be in for a ride if I get to this. Plus yay no stereotypes!

  8. Yay! Always great when a 2nd book lives up to expectations or are even better

  9. I agree that this one was absolute perfection! I adored everything about it, and poor Rob just about broke my heart. They both did, in fact.

  10. I am encouraged that this book was much better that is always a good sign with a series.

  11. I haven't read this sequel yet but I'm definitely looking forward to it because I liked the first book quite a bit. Wonderful review, Glass--I have to pick this one up next for sure! :)

  12. Sounds good -I'm glad Lauren felt like a real person to you; that's always nice. I love that the books are named after BSB songs. :)

  13. Argh, everybody is reading these books, it seems lol ! Got to join the move ;)

  14. I've never read an Ann Aguirre book. I'm definitely interested.

  15. Gosh, you and your Backstreet Boys obsession! It's adorable. It's nice to see this series keeps getting better and better. I hope the September release leaves you feeling all happy and warm. Nice review!
