Emma Walker was a writer who'd lost herself to someone else's anger--who had given up on ever feeling like herself again. Evan Levesque was a rock-god--the one all the woman wanted, but he'd never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life. With just one cup of coffee they'll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan's fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma's checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul--Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she's become because of it?
I had no idea what to expect from Cassandra Giovanni. A new author to me with a book that I really didn’t know much about. Love Exactly was amazing! It was a romance without all the hot and steamy. There was hot and steamy, but so much more than that in this book. Evan and Emma had such a deep connection. Evan, the rock star, was kept “normal” by Emma and Emma was made “ a star” by Evan. There complimented each other so perfectly. I loved that their relationship was not about sex and that Evan did not push for more than what Emma was willing and able to give. When they FINALLY! took their relationship to that next level it was cause the time was right, not cause one of them was afraid of losing the other.
Love Exactly was a novel more about a broken girl/woman who had a rough relationship in the past moving forward and finding herself again. The rough relationship she let define who she was and the long distance relationship was helping her heal. The emotional struggles that both Evan and Emma have and share with each other kept me awake way past bedtime. The fact that the story was told through Emma’s eyes made me love it even more.
I found this book refreshing. A fun rock and roll story, but not the typical rock and roll story. I will certainly recommend this book to all my romance loving friends. When the next book in this series come out I will be one of the first in line waiting for my copy.
