“Lakeshore Love” continues the “By The Lake” series about the McAdams sisters from author Shannyn Leah.

This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books.

Lakeshore Love (The McAdams Sisters, #3)Loose lips shink ships, or they can confess a love that has never died through the heartbreaking years. Something happened all those years ago that made Jake run and Sydney never knew what it was, but that couldn’t stop her from loving him, even as a teen. Years later he’s back and Sydney knows her heart is still vulnerable to the handsome man with a bundle of secrets packed deep within. Jake says he still cares, but the nightmares of the past have followed him home and it looks like he may bolt again. He dries her wild, makes her wanton, but he’s still holding back. Sydney needs more, but she had no idea what she was in for when Jake’s past came knocking at his door. But is Jake the only one with secrets?

Romance should make one’s heart pump with hope, it should have us melting at seeing two individuals who clearly share something special, finally take a chance on happiness. Romance should even have conflict, because how else can we know a couple has stood the test of loyalty, trust and sharing?

Shannyn Leah’s Lakeshore Love has just the right amount of swoon-worthy moments, passionate moments, moments that would try the patience of a saint and finally, the high tension moments just as the conflicts come to a dangerous head. Ms.Leah creates a world filled with caring family and friends, but lets us know that everyone needs something just for them, that special love of their lifetime. Follow another McAdams sister as she finally has a chance to share the passion she holds within. If you like interfering sisters, that banter that only sisters can do and the idea that love will find a way to the finish line, no matter what, this is a romantic series you’ll love. Life is chaotic sometimes and Ms. Leah has added enough emotional and physical chaos to strike a chord deep in one’s heart without being overly sweet and certainly without that over-the-top angst. Light enough to make for a wonderful read on a dreary day, deep enough to bring her characters and their feelings to life. This author has a talent for romance that feels right.

I received this copy from Shannyn Leah in exchange for my honest review.ser
