I am here today with another book review. This time it’s another ARC! I’m so excited to talk about Love Me Like You Do, because I really liked the book!

First of, the synopsis from Goodreads:

A runaway bride. A handsome stranger. Two pasts to put behind them.

Parker is ready to marry the man of her dreams. But he isn’t ready to marry her. It would be helpful if he didn’t choose their wedding day to tell her this. But as she flees from the travesty behind her, she literally runs into the arms of a handsome stranger. The southern drawl, the dreamy eyes, she can’t fall for another man after being left at the altar – can she?

When Liam agreed to go to go on a date he didn’t expect to leave with the bride. Nor did he expect to take her the emergency room. Immediately he’s drawn to her fiery spirit, her kind heart and beautiful smile. Liam’s got a whole host of problems and a past that keeps coming back, now can’t be the time to fall in love, but Parker might just be the one to break down his barriers and let him live a little – if she’ll let him in.

Will these two strangers allow serendipity to put them together, or will their fears keep them apart?

My thoughts on Love Me Like You Do

This was such a cute story, though a bit of a whirlwind! You’re thrown right into the action, when Parker flees from her wedding and is ‘saved’ by Liam. Honestly, right there and then did I fall in love with both characters. Parker is a fiery girl (as said in the synopsis) and that makes the book really fun. Liam got the whole tall, dark and handsome thing going on, and who doesn’t love that in a romance?

The chapters alternate between Parker and Liam, and I love that you get a look inside both their lives. Even though that first meeting already felt really like something, they don’t act on it. But they keep bumping into each other, which gives it the if-it’s-meant-to-be-it-will-be vibe.

There are few side plots that I thought gave a little depth to the whole book. But still it was mostly based around the romance, which was totally fine by me. The only problem I had is that because of the side plots and the romance all crammed into a low numbered of pages, it felt a bit rushed.
