A Love Like Ours Review


About the Book

Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion’s reluctance to run.

Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend? (Goodreads)

My Review

I have been looking forward to reading this book for awhile! If you haven't read the first two books I do recommend reading them first though they each have their own story. The same characters are present in all of the books and it makes more sense when reading them in order. While this wasn't my favorite book out of the three it was still so very good! I really liked Jake's character because it sheds some light into people living with PTSD. I can't imagine this and I think something it's downplayed but oh how it effects people's lives! The horses are fun to read about and Lyndie is a likable character. The story revolves around these two who have known each other since childhood but have been disconnected for years. I liked the romance part because of their past friendship, friendship always makes things work out better and I enjoy reading such story lines.
This is a good story with great characters and I really couldn't put it down.

Five stars.
