Product Description

Fraternization between guests and employees at the Diamond Isle Resort is against the rules.

However, rules mean nothing when it comes to matters of the heart.

Phillip Warrington is smart, sexy, and goal-oriented. He has always had his life planned out. But none of those plans involved falling for a wildly adventurous employee at the resort. She liberates him in ways he never thought possible—with methods that his parents would never approve. But he can control his yearnings, right?

Maggie Fairchild knows the season is almost over. With her plan to take to the seas only months away, she wasn't expecting Phillip, one of those off-limit kinds of boys, to stumble onto her path and steal her heart. Between steamy kisses and late-night moments near the ocean, Maggie finds herself caught in a riptide of passion, one she never anticipated. But who’s ever prepared for meeting the greatest love of your life?

With summer coming to an end, Maggie and Phillip take their relationship to the next level before they have to say goodbye. Can their budding romance be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful story with deep emotions! 24 August 2015
By Booklover - Published on Amazon.com
I can't express enough how deep this book touched my heart and made me fall in love with every page until the very end! I love a good heart-warming, bring out the tissues story!!! A story about friendships, finding love..losing it and doing everything you can for a second chance to make things right and to re-discover each other! This book is all of those things but so much more and it delivers a powerful message that I believe everyone strives for.. "Be Free"!! Do things for yourself not for others.. just be happy!!
This book is written very well! It's beautiful and timeless.. captivating.. all the details come together at just the right moments and make you feel like you were really there and everything was happening to not only the characters but to you as well.. like you were right there in each moment! The emotions were so deep you could feel yourself laughing along with the characters one moment and your heart breaking with theirs the next.. it's very powerful!
The characters Phillip and Maggie are AMAZING!!! so different yet so alike!! And I've never met two of the most bravest and strongest people in all of the books I have read... They faced each obstacle give to them head on and with complete determination! I look at them in AWE!!! their inspiring especially that maggie!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I hope others will love it just as much as I have and that this review will help lead you to buy the book! I look forward to reading more books by this author in the future!

5.0 out of 5 stars ... and Candace Knoebel were writing a book together I pretty much did a happy dance 5 September 2015
By Alicja P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As soon as I found out that Sonya Loveday and Candace Knoebel were writing a book together I pretty much did a happy dance. I've read books by both these authors and love them! Sometimes I hype a book up so much that it just leads me to be dissapointed. Luckily I was anything but dissapointed after reading Love Always,. Love Always, isn't just a contemporary romance...it's an epic romance. One that I can see myself reading over and over because it's beautiful and makes you feel all the right emotions. You get the story from both Phillip and Maggie's perspective and you get it in such a unique way that just works to make the story better.

Phillip is a rich guy spending his last summer before college in the Hamptons with his parents. His days and life are mapped out for him and he's just trudging along through his life without any passion...until he meets Maggie that is. Maggie is a refreshing contrast to his character. She lives her life knowing dreams are possible and sets out to do things that make her happy. This may seem like a combination that has been done before...summer romance between two people you wouldn't think would be attracted to each other... but it works. It works because the characters are complex and you care for them more and more the longer you read.

I love that this romance doesn't end at the conclusion of the summer like so many other summer romance novels do. You know the type, it's summer..they meet, they fall in love, happily ever after. Love Always, does take you through their summer together but it also shows you how their relationship changes and grows after summer ends. They each go to follow their own dreams and paths in life but vow to stay in each others lives..through letters. The letters that Phillip and Maggie write each other are sweet and endearing and honestly, just made me love these two even more. It's not all sunshine and roses for these two though. He's rich and she's not, his family and money control his life and she lets her dreams drive her, and the end of summer leaves them miles and miles apart so there's bound to be some ups and downs. The story wouldn't be as beautiful and wonderful as it is if everything was all up, up, up.

I could rave about this book forever, I just loved it that much. There aren't many romance novels that I would read more than once but like I said this one will be read again and again. The only thing I can compare it to are those movies that just tug on your heartstrings that you just can't help but watch over and over again...Dirty Dancing and Say Anything come to mind. If you're a fan of love and romance than I would say you need to pick up this book!

“I’d met boys like him before. Rich, Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there was something different about him that piqued my curiosity.”

“He was different from the rest because he didn’t wear his money, his money wore him.”

This is the story of Maggie and Philip. Philip’s life was pretty much planned out for him. His mother was a control freak and he had no say whatsoever on how he was to live his life. Maggie was free spirited and did what she pleased.

“Maggie was not your normal run-of-the-mill girl. She did what she wanted, when she wanted, however she wanted, and damn the consequences. She was everything I’d been raised to look away from.”

I felt horrible for Philip. The poor guy didn’t even know what he enjoyed doing. His whole life his mother told him what to wear, what activities he could participate in. He had no control over his life at all.

“People like Maggie they’re great people, but they aren’t our people. Do I make myself clear?”

“She consumed me. My thoughts. My days. My everything. She made me want things I couldn’t have. But I wanted them anyway. And I wanted them with a blinding passion that crept into the shadows of my everyday life.

Maggie was a strong character and you could really feel all the emotions both of these characters went through in this book. Some parts of the story had my stomach in knots.

Every story needs an evil skank that you want to throat punch and this one had one. Sophia was a piece of works. I wanted to smack the crap out of her so many times it wasn’t even funny. She was just pure evil. I kept thinking how stupid Philip was for not taking a stand for himself and letting his mother and Sophia manipulate him.

The story was written really well and flowed effortlessly. I just felt a few things were very predictable and the ending felt a little rushed. Overall, I loved the connection between Philip and Maggie and loved how there was that slow build. The author took time for them to get to know and understand each other. You could really feel the connection they had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, be still, my foolish beating heart... 11 September 2015
By Claire - Published on Amazon.com

She was different from all the girls he was accustomed to. She was the sunshine that brightened up his dimly lit world. She crashed and burned and still looked at life in a positive way. She was a spitfire. She was everything he ever wanted. Except, she couldn't be his.

He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He had class, elegance and breeding. He usually followed the rules to please his mother. Deep inside, he wanted to get away from all of it. When he finally met Maggie, things changed. Suddenly there's light at the end of the tunnel. Suddenly, it's okay to break rules. Suddenly, the pangs and cravings for freedom always hounded him. Suddenly, he craved for Maggie.

It was one great summer and they were bound to part ways in the end. In this age of technology and Apples, they could have opted for e-mail messages, text, Skype or Facebook. But no. Hand written letters were all they got. And that's how they kept in touch.

Love, Always is a feel-good romantic story about a rich guy falling for a poor girl screaming "it's you and me against the world," and their love defying all odds. Meet Phillip, the 18-year old son of a successful business mogul running a Fortune 500 company whose life changed when he saw Maggie, the orange-haired girl who was always in a state of perpetual sunshine.

I loved all parts of this book. From the moment Phillip started his tennis lessons, to avoiding an ex-girlfriend. I loved how Miss Hoops was able to persuade Silver Spoon to go skinny-dipping. I loved how their letters arrived at their footsteps and relive their perfect summer. I loved how it all ended. Gosh, I loved how I gushed the entire time I read this book!

This book is by the super duo, Candace Knoebel and Sonya Loveday, who had managed to make me go crazy and act like a teen while reading. To others, they may seem a simple book, but the impact it conveyed was ferocious. It hit all the high notes. It sent me soaring with happiness, especially with those hand-written love letters. It is my hope that Knoebel and Loveday would continue working together, writing beautiful stories like this.

Love Always by Sonya Loveday and Candace Knoebel is a wonderful story about how love, how "first love", inspires a young man to find his independence. On the very first page we meet Phillip Warrington, an eighteen year old soon heading off to college and who thinks of his mom as “Mother” (with a capital M) and his father as,yep, "Father". I think that alone gives the reader a sense of Phillip. He’s a young man raised in a privileged lifestyle, one that isolates him and one that hasn’t given him the tools to stake any claim for freedom, which he desperately wants.. When Phillip meets Maggie it’s obvious that she is his guide forward, that she will help him reach that goal. Maggie, a local girl in the setting where we first meet these Phillip, a Hampton’s resort. Maggie is fearless and undeniably fun - traits that don’t seem to be in Phillips DNA at all. Maggie represents the 98%, looking at a future doing what she loves but clearly never on the track to find a place in the Warrington family’s world.

Now, at first the story moved a bit slow for me. I was a bit worried that the age of the characters and the fact that Phillip was just not inspiring me, would mean the story would drag but that was simply not the case. Phillip did eventually grow on me, but he is so kowtowed by his family, by social expectations, it was a bit of a tough sell. Who was inspiring was Maggie and her pull and desire to get to know Phillip. She had me sticking in there and trying to see what she saw. She’s a really strong character and she lifts up a good part of the story just being who she is, wise beyond her years. Maggie is astute and she shares her observations, her hopes, in a kind and seasoned voice.

The writing and the story delivery really grabbed my attention. First, we get the story through both their eye’s, which I always love. Secondly, things switch up, and then we get the story through letters. I adore this style. Its something in the re-telling of events and what the characters choose to share. Finally, the dialogue is really well-done. The characters are young and the authors capture their youth. With Phillip, his conversations with his family, the dialogue completely captures their relationships to each other. The dialogue also shows us how the characters evolve; the Phillip at the beginning was NOT the Phillip at the end. Maggie’s genuine nature continued to shine through. There are a myriad of secondary characters, some to hate and some to love - best friends, new friends and social vixens. All adding to the storyline and building out our 2 main characters.

Love Always is a delightful read and has an ending that I never saw coming. I’ve read a Sonya Loveday novel but this is my first book by Candace Knoebel. These authors have found a strong voice in their writing partnership.

4.5 stars and recommendation.
