Hurts to love you - Alisha Rai

Heiress Evangeline Chandler knows how to keep a secret . . . like her life-long crush on the tattooed hottie who just happens to be her big brother’s friend. She’s a Chandler, after all, and Chandlers don’t hook up with the help. Then again, they also don’t disobey their fathers and quit their respectable jobs, so good-girl rules may no longer apply.

Gabriel Hunter hides the pain of his past behind a smile, but he can’t hide his sudden attraction to his friend’s sheltered little sister. Eve is far too sweet to accept anything less than forever and there’s no chance of a future between the son of a housekeeper and the town’s resident princess.

When a wedding party forces Eve and Gabe into tight quarters, keeping their hands off each other will be as hard as keeping their clothes on. The need that draws them together is stronger than the forces that should shove them apart . . . but their sparks may not survive the explosion when long-buried secrets are finally unearthed.

Forbidden Hearts #3
Contemporary romance

My thoughts:
Lily is restless. I get that. Omg, her dad was a d*ck! She wants to do something for herself, and that is not easy when she is a Chandler. The big name in her town. She was smart, sweet and totally lusting after Gabriel. Like this girl wanted him bad. You go girl.

Gabriel is a tattoo artist. The son of the help and with issues. I liked those issues. That sounds bad, but poor guy. I feel your pain! He does not stand a chance against her.

The book feels sort of short. Most of it takes place at this big house where the wedding will be and they are alone at first. Finally a chance to get to know each other better. And then there will be drama and secrets before we can have a wedding (not theirs obviously.)

It did make me interested in the previous couples.
One thing at the end could have been left out, I did not want to know why her dad was a d*ck. That felt like an excuse. Some people are just evil.



  1. Its nice to know you could jump into the series at book three and enjoy it and its also nice that it made you want to go back and read more. I like the premise and would also want to know why the dad was a jerk.

    1. It does make it easy when it is contemporary romance :)
      Oh he was arghhh

  2. I have the first book on my Kindle and need to read it one of these days.

  3. I like when opposites attract.

  4. I really liked the first one in this series! I am waiting and waiting for my library on this one. Now I'm definitely curious about the end and the dad...

  5. I guess if a book seems a little short that's a good sign!

  6. I think I will pass, the dad totally puts me off.

  7. This was my least favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed it :) I hope you can backtrack to the others sometime!!

    1. I feel that it could have been more fleshed out

  8. I liked this one but not like the previous books

  9. Some dad's are just bad. I'm glad you enjoyed it enough to be interested in other books.

  10. I wondered if this was a series that could work as standalones. This sounds like a good story.

  11. Ooh, a tattoo artist. I like that. But crushign after your bro's friend? Could spell bad news...but it sounds like it worked!

  12. I have not tried this author, you have me curious about the series.

  13. So happy you read Alisha Rai! Love her stuff. The first book in this series is my fave. <3

  14. I would lust over Gabriel too. ;)
