New Release Review! BOY IN LUV by Jay Crownover and Rebecca Yarros (In Luv duet #2)

Boy in Luv cover

Distance sure as hell made his heart grow fonder… But it shattered hers into a million pieces.

Langley Vaughn knows she’s never going to make the same mistake again.

Who falls head over heels in love in a week? Langley did, and she’s regretted it every day since she handed her heart to a boy with too many secrets and too much baggage. Iker doesn’t fit into Langley’s world, and he made it clear he doesn’t want to. He left before she even got a chance to try and change his mind or to prove to him how good they could be together. Langley’s spent the last nine months healing her heart and making big plans for the future. Plans that absolutely don’t include Iker… even though he’s back, looking better than ever, and saying all the right things.

Iker Alvarez knows he made the biggest mistake of his life.

At first, the pretty blonde in the red dress was nothing more than a means to an end. But, she quickly became so much more. As soon as Iker walked away from Langley, claiming it was for her own good, he knew he screwed up. He left her so she wouldn’t worry about him when he deployed, so she wouldn’t waste her time waiting around for a guy who was never going to be good enough for her. Only, nine months and a deployment later, Iker still can’t get Langley out of his head… and he totally underestimated the hold she has on his hardened heart. He’s a guy who’s not sure how love should work, or how to go about winning his girl back…he’s about to get a crash course in both.

A fitting ending–Jay Crownover and Rebecca Yarros gave Langley and Iker the ending they deserve!

Boy in Luv begins as Iker arrives home from the deployment that he’d “forgotten” to mention to Langley until literally moments before he left the country. She’s moved on; he’s come to realize that he’s probably not going to be able to. This time Langley has a secret, though, and it puts their reconciliation–if she’s even going to give him a second chance, which is very much up in the air in the beginning–in jeopardy.

But of course once Iker decides to get her back, he goes all in and Langley isn’t able to resist him (or his pineapples–nope, not a euphanism) for long. But she still has her secret, and Iker’s still in the Army–can they finally find their HEA?

Of course they can, it’s the second book of a duet in the romance genre! But the authors are going to make them work for it first–pick up a copy of Boy in Luv to find out just how much 😉
