Just Love by Prescott Lane
Release Date: July 9, 2019
Just Love, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.
There’s two sides to every love story. The how you fell in love, and the how you fell apart.
This is ours.
The cardinal rule of friendship is you don’t mess with your friend’s sister.
That goes double when she’s his little sister.
It was just supposed to be fun.
She wasn’t supposed to end up being the love of my life.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to break her heart.
Ainsley is a wedding dress designer. That should’ve been a warning that she’s a hopeless romantic. That should’ve clued me in that she believes love conquers all.
But there are some things that love can’t fix. I’m one of them.
She thinks love is the answer.
But love is the reason I let her go.
A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

I knew the kind of guy Rhett was. I knew serious wasn’t his thing. I knew using the word love usually sent him running for the hills. I knew it, and I did it anyway.
But he wasn’t that guy with me. He and I were different. I know he loved me.
I’ve loved that man since I was fifteen years old. How could I not? Forget the abs, the tan skin, those pale, sexy blue eyes. Forget the fact that his voice sends shivers down my spine. The first time we kissed, I felt my whole world shatter and fall into place at the same time.
I tried to pretend to be “that” girl. The kind that can kiss a guy just for fun, screw a man and not imagine a life with him. I tried. I failed. The hopeless romantic in me wasn’t having it.
My heart should’ve known better — but my heart was no match for Rhett Bennett.
When Rhett and I fell apart, I broke up with social media. I have to say, that breakup was a lot easier. No hashtags, no emojis, no memes to post. Some people use social media as their therapist. I’ve seen people post play-by-plays of their divorce, or explain every detail of their latest illness or drama. I probably could’ve attracted a lot more followers if I chronicled the demise of our relationship. It’s the stuff of soap operas.
But instead, I broke it off with Facebook, banned Instagram, and boycotted Twitter.
Today, Facebook and I are having one last romp. Relationship status update: Single.
That’s it. That one little change. I have to start somewhere. Skye’s right about that.
The one part of being single I have embraced is the diet. The single woman diet consists of basically any breakfast food for dinner, coffee, and alcohol. I’ve gotten so good at it, I no longer need a grocery cart when I shop. Quick tip, don’t get a cart at the grocery store, only buy what you can hold. It’s good for the budget and the waistline. Unfortunately, that rule doesn’t work so well at clothing stores.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
To say that I loved this book isn’t saying enough. I devoured it. I was consumed by it. It broke my heart and then pieced it back together again. Just Love is anything than just a second-chance, best friend’s sister romance. It is a love story full of heart, loss, anger, grief, compassion, soul-searching and desperation. I sobbed. And yet somehow, it all comes back together again with a wonderful HEA that made my heart soar and cry happy tears.
Prescott Lane does a marvelous job of telling Ainsley and Rhett’s story, perfectly weaving chapters from the start of their secret relationship 18 months ago to present day, where they were engaged to be married and now not speaking at all. I kept tearing through chapters, waiting for the big blow-up that left Rhett so angry he pushed the love of his life away. And when I was on the precipice of finding out, I JUST KNEW what the next page was going to tell me. I did not see the twist coming, but it so perfectly explained so much about this couple’s split and the aftermath once they fell apart.
My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen Rhett’s POV in finally reaching out to Ainsley. His desperation and regret was so clear as he found himself unable to dial the last number to call her. Then in Ainsley’s POV, he finally does. Why? What pushed him to finally make the call after a year?
That aside, this story is damn perfect. It is full of heartache and grief, but undeniable, everlasting, unconditional love. Rhett just had to be able to love himself once again and let Ainsley love him back.
