Book Review – Some Sort of Love by Melanie Harlow

Goodreads Summary

From the outside looking in, I had it all—a career I loved, a supportive family, the Nixon metabolism but not the Nixon ears, and a salary that supported my lavish taste in designer shoes, fine wine, and lacy lingerie … but I had no some sort of loveone to share it with.

Until the day I ran into him—my one night stand from college with the crooked smile, let’s-get-out-of-here eyes, and dirty, dirty mouth.

Cute and cocky then, today Levi Brooks is six feet four inches of hot bearded fantasy. A sexy single dad with broad shoulders, strong hands, and a fantastically big … heart. (I mean, it’s massive. And generous. And it pumps so hard … um. Sorry. Lost my place.)

Being a good father means everything to him, but he’s keeping me at a distance because he thinks I deserve someone better — a man who can give me more time, more attention, more of himself. He doesn’t believe he could ever be enough. But he’s wrong.  He’s everything.


3 1/2 out of 5 stars


The third and final book in the Crazy Happy Love series focused on oldest sister Jillian, the pediatrician.  The book starts at sister Skylar’s wedding, where Jill literally runs into Levi Brooks.  But it turns out that Jill knows Levi – they hooked up during college in a broom closet.

Levi is a single dad with an autistic son.  While I appreciated that Levi looked out for his son, he did it at the expense of his own happiness.  Which was a shame.  It kind of made him less likable.

I liked Jill a lot.  She was cool, and she put up with a lot of shit from Levi.  I had a really hard time with Levi.  She kept putting off having Jill meet his son, because he was afraid.  I liked him better in the end, but he kind of annoyed me.

I liked the epilogue, and the way the series ended.  But this wasn’t my favorite book in the series.
