The secret’s out...

Fate has never been kind to Mia Lee, but her misfortune has driven her to seek redemption from a past filled with regret.

Mia’s future depends on uncovering her past, but sadly, the answers lay with her mother, a mother who abandoned Mia when she was only a child.

Now that Mia has finally found her kin, she’s determined to get the answers she so desperately seeks.

But those answers come with a price…

Mia’s blossoming relationship with Quinn Berkeley is the sole reason she carries on. But Quinn has a secret of his own. Will his secret destroy the one stable foundation in Mia’s life? And more importantly, what will Quinn’s secret do to him once he confesses the sins of his past?

Life for Mia and Quinn is about to explode in a way she never thought possible…

3.5 stars--SOMETHING LIKE LOVE is the third installment in Monica James’s contemporary, new adult, Something Like Normal series focusing on Mia Lee and Quinn Berkeley. Because SOMETHING LIKE LOVE is the continuing story of Mia and Quinn, it should NOT be read as a stand alone; there is too much information revealed in the previous two storylines. This is NOT the final installment-Something Like Love ends on a frustrating cliffhanger.

Told from first person point of view (Mia) SOMETHING LIKE LOVE follows Quinn and Mia on their escape into Alberta, Canada. Still on the run while the people back home struggle to prove their innocence for a murder they did not commit, Quinn and Mia find an uneasy truce with Mia’s mother-a woman who abandoned Mia at three years old. While Mia struggles with the truth about her early childhood, Quinn reveals his deepest darkest secrets-ones that parallel some of Mia’s earlier years about family, abandonment and neglect.

The relationship between Mia and Quinn becomes sexual. There is no denying they have been attracted to one another since they met, but Quinn’s brother Tristan has always had eyes on the woman his brother loves. There is a slight love triangle formula that continues throughout the storyline one that will pit brother against brother for the love of a woman whose life has spiraled out of control.

SOMETHING LIKE LOVE is a graphically violent, angst filled and disturbing storyline about dysfunctional families, abuse and the law. There are some questionable plot points especially Mia’s actions and choices, which are completely distressing and difficult to understand. A debt must be paid and Mia is willing to sacrifice herself for everyone involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars This may just be the best book yet in this series… and that's saying a lot! 26 February 2015
By Ariana Mcwilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
5 HUGE Stars!!!
(Wish I could give it a billion!)
Holy crap! Words cannot express how I feel after reading this book.
I don't think my emotions have ever been on such a crazy ride as they were while reading this story. Hell, this entire series has been one hell of a trip, and after three books I feel as if we have only just begun.

There was such emotional intensity that I don't think I will ever be the same after having read this. Mia and Quinn really did a number on me. Something Like Love was a fast paced, action packed, intense roller coaster ride that will leave your head spinning, heart racing, and your mind needing MORE!

Picking up where Something Like Normal left off, Mia comes face to face with her mother who abandoned her at the age of three, and her bitchy sister she didn't even know she had. Mia is searching for answers to her past, but the more she learns, the more she wishes she hadn't.

Mia and Quinn's relationship steps it up in this book. Feelings are finally admitted and things are revealed to each other about their pasts.

"If I was going to overdose on something sweet, I would much rather eat you."

We FINALLY get to learn things which we were questioning about Quinn's past and you soon learn to realize that Quinn is more broken that you originally thought. I wanted so badly for Mia and Quinn to catch a break, but every dang time I thought they were finally having a bit of good luck BAM the sh** just keeps pouring on them.

Quinn has seriously taken over my heart. He is such an incredible character. There is just so much to him that we learn, and have yet to learn. While I LOVE Jasper from Monica's I Surrender series, Quinn has definitely been giving him a run for his money. He seriously turned up his game in this book and honestly, if him and Mia don't get their happily ever after by the time this series is finished, I may quit reading altogether!!!!

"Hope to live. I hope to live, Red. With you. After this is over, I hope to live a boring life…with you."

And let us not forget about Phil and Mia's father. You think the story with them can't get any more screwed up???? Well, think again. My mind was completely and utterly blown when Mia's mother dropped a HUGE bomb regarding Mia's connection to Phil. I got chills, and NOT in a make your body feel good king of way.

Monica, please please PLEASEEEEEEE tell me book 4 will be releasing soon because I just cannot take the wait to know what happens next. This must be the worst cliffhanger yet in this series. GAHHHH!
4.0 out of 5 stars Something Like Love is my favorite installment in this series so ... 4 February 2015
By Christy Baldwin BBU - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Something Like Love is my favorite installment in this series so far. As Mia would say… it is about to get real! It picks up immediately where book two leaves off. I’ve been dying to find out what has happened with Mia and Quinn. Some secrets were revealed, some bombs were dropped, and after the ending of this book- you are once again left dying to get to the next one!

Mia is out to get her questions answered. And there is only one person who can do that for her. Mia is also out for revenge. She’s out for blood. She knows that the people in her life she’s sworn to protect won’t be safe until the threats are eliminated. But it’s not easy. Mia has a lot going on. Rekindling some familial relationships, being the run, keeping her friendships with the people most important to her, and then there is Quinn. Quinn and his secrets. Quinn who has stood beside her no matter what. I just love Mia and I love Quinn.

Mia Lee is tough, strong, brave, but on top of all that, she has heart. Mia would do anything for those she loves. The few people in her life that she considers family, she would sacrifice anything to keep them safe. Quinn Berkley. He has the piercings, the rough exterior and the damaged past, but this boy has a heart of gold. I just adore Quinn. I love his devotion to Mia, his strength and determination.

What I love most about the Something Like Normal series is they are fast paced books you won’t want to put down. You never know whats going to happen when you turn the next page. It’s not just a love story or a suspense story or even a story of friendship and self discovery, but it’s a great mix of all of the above. I love the main characters and their journey of finding themselves, finding love, and just finding a way to survive. I can’t wait to see where the next and final book takes Mia and Quinn!

SOMETHING LIKE LOVE is a graphically violent, angst filled and disturbing storyline about dysfunctional families, abuse and the law. There are some questionable plot points especially Mia’s actions and choices, which are completely distressing and difficult to understand. A debt must be paid and Mia is willing to sacrifice herself for everyone involved. She will place everyone in danger in the belief she is protecting the others from further harm. There are also continuing issues of jealousy; anger control; and the need to run as her psychotic father is always one step behind at every stop.

The world building continues as our couple face insurmountable problems on the run. Mia and Quinn find themselves in difficult situations that placed them in danger-time and again. Mia’s temper and immaturity in certain matters, threatens not only her relationship with Quinn but with her ability to survive on the run. She is a one woman wrecking ball who has little faith in mankind because of the dark and destructive life she has lead.

I did have some issues with the author’s misinformation regarding the Canadian provinces, cities, and the reality of border crossing but these could have been alleviated with some research. I am Canadian after all… ;)

Monica James pulls the reader into a modern day story of Bonnie and Clyde. Two young lovers on the run from their pasts, their presents and the demons that continue to destroy their hopes and their dreams. SOMETHING LIKE LOVE is passionate, intense, alarming and dark. There are moments of emotional turmoil and passionate bliss followed by the painful realization that everything could in in a heartbeat or two. Let’s hope that our couple survive and their story doesn’t end like Bonnie and Clyde’s.
5.0 out of 5 stars This book is powerful, beautiful, a bit terrifying... AMAZING! 4 February 2015
By Stephanie-The Boyfriend Bookmark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am just going to put this out there… Monica James is my hero. This series is one that you don’t want to miss. If you haven’t met Mia and Quinn, you will want to. This is an explosive series that just keeps you on your toes from the very first page of the very first book.

Now, with the third book, I am completely left in awe by the writing and story that Monica James has told. It is gripping, endearing and moving, but one thing it is not is a sweet simple story. This book is full of action adventure and love. When I finished Something Like Love I was stunned into silence. It took me a good four hours to calm my thumping heart and reel it in long enough to sit down and write a review. It IS that amazing!

Mia and Quinn are in Canada and after her initial meeting with her mom didn’t go so well, Mia was a bit confused as the refuge she sought turned into a storm that would not be quieted. Everywhere she turned something was happening and it wasn’t getting easier, in fact, everything was getting more and more complicated.

Still waiting for the moment that Mia and Quinn could return to normal, Mia is faced with new troubles and fears. Everything she thought she knew was a lie and everyone from her past was an issue in some way. But throw in a snotty teenage half sister, and all bets are off where Mia’s sanity is concerned.

The only thing that has kept her grounded during this entire journey has been Quinn. There is no one like him and he can calm her with just a simple touch. But when his brother suddenly shows up because it was inevitable that he would, the dynamics of all of these relationships change. But it is not just having Quinn’s brother around, it is that they have caught up to her again.

Will Mia ever have a normal kind of life, or will accepting the hand she has been dealt be all that she can ever hope for?

My heart broke for nearly everyone involved in this story. This is one tangled web that has been woven in front of Mia’s eyes. The only thing that holds her together after each crap shoot is the love she finds in Quinn.

This book just really got to me. I would have thought after Something Like Normal and Something Like Redemption that Mia would finally get something like freedom somewhere in the middle of all the chaos. But what Mia gets instead is an overwhelming sense of love. Not just that of Quinn either. It is a touching and moving story. It is more than just Mia and Quinn. There are more players involved now and everyone wants to keep her safe from her past. But sometimes the past has a funny way of skewing everything we know.

From the beginning, I had no idea what to expect. What I found was faith in family, friends and love. But more it was the belief in a happily ever after. It was the faith that people can change, people are not who they seem to be and love has never felt better.

This book, this series, has just left me in awe of the writing of Monica James and I know I don’t have a very long list of must read authors, but she has certainly found her way to one of the top spots on this list.

This book is powerful, beautiful, a bit terrifying and I was so sad when I hit the end of the book. I wasn’t ready for it to be over so soon.
5.0 out of 5 stars OH MY EFFING GOSH... 4 February 2015
By JC82 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I. Cant. Even. Describe.

What...

No Way...

Mind-Blown....

That was me sitting on my couch in shock after reading this book. Monica James is literally going to give me a heart attack with this series and I FREAKIN LOVE HER for it HAHA!!

Oh boy, I don't even know where to start. I am going to stay away from spoilers as the twists in the book are just bloody crazy and will leave you with your aching heart ripped out of your chest and your mind spinning around in circles.

Book 2 Something Like Redemption left us with Mia finally meeting the one person that she has been looking for her whole life, the one person who can finally provide her with the truth. Her mother, also the one person that Mia can't forgive because she is the one that abandoned Mia when she needed her the most and left her to fend for herself with her horrible maniacal father.

As truths come to the surface Mia has to decide whether the sins of the past can be laid to rest and if she can truly forgive her mother and move on to something that feels normal, something that feels like Love. Her relationship with Quinn is also heating up and after a heartbreaking revelation from the one person she trusts most, Mia will have to decide if she is truly ready to follow her heart. This book focuses a lot on Mia's relationship with her mom and trying to not only face the truth but also heal the wounds it has left in its wake. It also further develops Quinn and Mia's relationship, their devotion to each other and their acceptance of their feelings.

BUT WAIT there's more because Quinn and Mia are still on the run from both her Father and Phil, with the stakes high and the family she has grown to love at risk, Mia will have to pay the ultimate sacrifice to save the ones she loves.

AHHHHHHH, this book is crazy good!!! I think at some points I might have been clutching my Kindle or holding my breath in anticipation waiting to see what would happen next. The relationship with Quinn and Mia is so intense. Their desire, passion and loyalty to each other runs so deep you can feel it in in your bones. Your heart will be break in this story, then it will heal, and then it will beat like never before.

Monica James is amazing, she makes your heart bleed for her characters, you feel their pain, their compassion, their anger and their fear. She places her characters in these excruciating and pivotal situations and as a reader you can't help but become utterly invested and consumed by each one of their stories. Quinn will make you melt, Tristan will make you cry and Mia will make you want to survive it all.

There is so much I want to say but can't because I don't want to ruin it for anyone. This series is a must read and I think this is my favorite book in the series so far. I can not even imagine what Monica James has in store for the next installment and I cannot wait to read more of this story!!
