This is the final book in Ms Brayden’s ‘Seven Shores’ series and after reading the first three books, which I very much enjoyed, I have no choice but to say this is the best of the series. We now get to follow Hadley Cooper on her journey in finding love. Hadley works as an assistant manager of a posh boutique on Rodeo Drive. She has great friends and a family who love her. Unfortunately she hasn’t found the love of her life like her friends have. Spencer Adair is a fashion designer who has a strong following with her online sales but she still hasn’t broke into the bigger markets. When Hadley comes across her work she is given the chance to show her stuff. Ms Brayden has a way of writing about her characters that makes it impossible to not care about and like them. Great read. Very, very much enjoyed. eARC via NetGalley
4,0 sur 5 étoilesWe leave the Seven Shores sadly but happy

Love Like This sees us sadly leave the Seven Shores, but with love and happy endings for all our friends. This is wonderful classic romance with some light drama, humour, engaging and contrasting main characters and a great supporting cast of friends. I’m sure everyone who reads this series seems to think Hadley is a wonderful character – and it’s true. Certainly unique, and adorable in her own way. Hadley and Spencer bring out the best in each other and deserve a bright future together. That said, this is not my favourite Seven Shores romance; that was the first in the series - Eyes Like Those. I’d strongly recommend them all and it’s a five-star series overall, but this book just didn’t quite tip to “love it” for me. Overall, Love Like This get a firm recommendation.
5,0 sur 5 étoilesExcellent finish to a fine series.

We knew Hadley’s story would be special and Brayden delivers once again. I've not been Hadley’s biggest fan in this series, finding her pie-in-the-sky attitude towards life too sweet for my dark roast coffee taste. I loved the many references to her unrealistic “goodness” made in the early chapters of the book. An author who can laugh at her own character and what makes them unique is so entertaining. That she ends up being paired with a pragmatist like Spencer makes Hadley’s fluffy view of life all the more endearing. Spencer is suitably conflicted.
Hadley, Spencer realized, thought a lot of things were awesome. In fact, she was perpetually cheerful and optimistic in every conversation they’d had thus far. She couldn’t decide if that was an endearing quality or annoying one. (Loc. 516-517)
Meeting Spencer, a woman whose feet are firmly planted in the real world, allows the reader to look beneath the Disney princess and see the depth of character we all hoped for in Hayden. I liked the way Spencer challenged Hayden’s view of relationships and I loved how take charge Hayden turns out to be both at work and in the bedroom. A tiger hidden under all those gosh golly good deeds. Who knew?
A great finale to a solid series and some memorable women. Well done.

Well, it was about time that we found someone for the romantic out of the Seven Shores lot, Hadley. She is kind, always looks out for others and a true believer in all things love. She deserves her own happy ever after. And she seems to find it in up-and-coming designer Spencer, who she meets through her job at a top notch boutique on Rodeo drive. Hadley and Spencer seem to hit it off from the get-go, but they do find that in some key aspects they are quite different, and that's where things might get complicated... And of course we are reunited with all the other ladies from the Seven Shores estate; it feels like meeting old friends. As always Melissa Brayden crafts her characters well and the book is full of wit and lighthearted fun (except of chapter 14, which made me cry just a tiny little bit). Also, as someone who works in the fashion industry (that would be me), I really appreciated that i did not find myself going "What a load of bs, that's not how it happens!" That's extra points right there. It's a bit sad to have to say goodby to our Seven Shores girls, but it was a great final!
I’ve loved this series, and the humour and story were as always great,but cmon Melissa, what happened to Hadley at work, Trudy disses her big style but it was a success but did she get the credit? Did she quit when she went to Paris?? Still.. the fact I’m worked up on what happens to a character in a book is testament to this authors writing!!
What a Phenomenal book… I can’t believe the Seven Shores series is finished for good. How did that happen…
Hadley is happy-go-lucky, kind and believe the best in everyone. She has watched her three best friends find their should mate and she’s just now waiting patiently for hers to show up. Spencer Adair is the next big name in fashion and is working with Hadley to get her line into the Rodeo Drive store where Hadley works. The attraction is instant but with Hadley’s need for happily ever after and Spencer’s view of nothing lasts forever, can they find their way to happy ever after?
This book should come with a box of tissues especially for chapter 3 and for the epilogue! Boy, I have not cried that many happy tears in a book before… I was totally floored!
Hadley is defo my favourite character in the series (as is Autumn... these two fight for first place) so having her story end the tale of the Seven Shores group of friends was actually perfect. On Friday night I started the series again with Eyes Like Those and read right through to Love Like This. What a weekend!
I really have to commend Melissa Brayden in her exceptional writing and especially in the way she writes not only the romance but the friendships between the group of women, she did a very similar thing with the Soho Loft Series. The connection between the four friends of Seven Shores is what every girl aims for in friendship.
The chemistry between Spencer and Hadley in this book radiated of the page and I think their connection with all their doubts was still one of the strongest in this series. As soon as they met there was an undercurrent of just knowing both Spencer and Hadley were made for each other. Hadley reminds me a little of myself as I can be seen as naive and am constantly told my head is in the clouds but really I just believe in the good in people and like to live in a word filled with romance… my wife however is the opposite and I think that is why I just knew Spencer and Hadley had the makings of something great.
The biggest surprise was the bedroom scenes… Best Melissa Brayden has written. EVER. Seriously, and you won’t expect our sweet and innocent Hadley to be the way she is when she hits the sheets! Wow, is all I’m saying. Go Hadley!!!!
I know this is a book (and series) I will read over and over again. Melissa Brayden always has a way of knocking them out of the park and this book is no exception.
