  • ❤❤Dee's Love of Books ❤❤
    Love is Love Theodora Taylor's writing style has always grabbed me from the very first page of her daring stories but this one was so prolific due to the timely subject matter she cleverly weaved in Keane and Lena's engaging tale.So cheers again to Theodora Taylor on another epic story to her 50 Loving States series!Hero or should I say anti-hero, Desmond B. Keane aka Keane was that bully and noted hockey Love is Love Theodora Taylor's writi...

    Keane and Lena's story was a little different from what I usually expect from Theodora Taylor but sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone and Keane-Her Ruthless Ex was definitely that for me. Lena and Keane's love story was a complicated one that has more twists and turns , ups and downs, and secrets on top of secrets. For a big chunk of the story, I was thinking there is no possible way for these two to have a happy ending because t...

    Desmond and Lena4 stars for this bwwm enemies to friends sports romance. You know I am a serious super fan of TT, she is my fave however, as much as I love her writing sometimes I might not like the characters. In this case I could not get on the Lena, the heroine’s bandwagon and let alone her father. What saved the story at all was Keane (Desmond) and Max. I really get into these stories so much its like these 2D people jump off the pages espe...

    2 Stars / 2 Steam Fans This was just a NOPE! A bully story and I didn't like it! This specific video review will be included in the August 2019 wrap-up. For other video book reviews check out my YouTube Channel: Steph's Romance Book Talk.

    Fans of Theodora Taylor are certain to enjoy Keane, the latest installment in the 50 Loving States series. The story follows a formula that I've grown to expect from this author. That's both a positive and negative in terms of my reading experience. If you're a fan there are certain things that likely appeal to you when it comes to Taylor's work. The alpha-hole hero for example and the passion that turns to hate that's masking unrequited love sto...
  • Donyae Coles
    This was Taylor's at bully romance and I even written by an author I enjoy, I am just not a fan of that trope. At all. But more than that, I gave this a two star because it just seemed too derivative of Taylor's other works to stand out. On the plus side, there were way less egregious typos and grammatical errors in this text than some of her older ones so that's awesome. Her world building was smooth in this, she locked Keane into the universe w...

    I am very sorry I can't give this book a higher rating. I love Ms. Taylor books, but I don't agree with this storyline. I have nothing against gay or transgender people that is their choice. I don't feel that a child should make that choice and parent agree to it. I would not let my nine year old become a murder if that made him/her happy.
  • Erica M.
    Too muchI really didn’t like Lena. She was annoying. I have no problem with transgender, gay, lesbian, etc. I’d just prefer it not involve children, be in my fictional romance novel... involving multiple characters. They have genres for that. I typically love this author and I was really looking forward to this book.
  • Tphyllis
    Yeah heads upI normally don't give a bad review the story wasn't a bad story, the female got on my nerves but the story overall is good . Now the problem I have is with the homosexuality. you need to let people know what they are getting into! not just letting them find out dang near the end of the book. yeah not cool at all. in the blurb say something. I like to have my choice in the matter instead of hitting you with a sneak attack.
  • Gina StyleRocks
    Wow, I was not expecting that. Not once had it ever crossed my mind about what was going on with the child. I think I was really caught up in the drama between Keane and Lena. They had quite a bit going on. Keane was a very flawed individual, but so was Lena. I was giving her a serious side eye whenever she would tell Keane about his issues. Baby girl had some too. I did like Keane in spite of how crude unfiltered he could be. Anyway, I did enjoy...
  • Rochelle
    I enjoyed the prequel that was on the Read Me Romance podcast and I just needed to see how this story ended for Keane and Lena. I really like the story. I wasn't a big fan of the jumping from past to present. I am happy that they were able to get through their differences and get the HEA that they both deserved.
  • Kelli Harvey
    This is just SICKI use to Love this author but now we can’t even read a simple storyline without pushing agendas and sexual propaganda .... I am so done children should always be sacred

    This was a hard one to rate Review to follow.

    I received an ARC- Advanced Reader Copy; the review and opinions are my own and not influenced in anyway by the advance copy.For the first part of this book I wanted to just beat Keane- he was a bully, harsh, horrible, and so nasty. I hated the derogatory language and actions that he and his friends used and I had no idea how anyone would like him- let alone love him! Hate him-yes! Hate to be attracted to and around him yes but love him-NO! No! M...

    Ok I received this free book through ARC but having said that I still have pre-ordered it. Authors like Theodora Taylor who write these wildly entertaining interlock stories just have to be shared. The book Keane did not disappoint either for those who have read Theodora's other stories you will like to see snippets of previous beloved characters. Keane's love for Lena was beautiful to read and I enjoyed their wild relationship. The little twist ...
    Ok, I already hate the male lead in this story.So these losers were ok with graham willing to rape a girl for points to their dumb game. DafuqKeane has already exhausted his three strikes out limit with Lena as far as I’m concerned. Now he’s thinking about himself instead of Max. Considering how Max was conceived you’d think he’d be less of a dick but I don’t think he knows how. So far I can’t root for them as a pairing.120 fucks no c...

    Theodora took a long vacation (please, don't do it again. My reader self doesn't possess enough emotional training to bear all that time without reading one of your work) but I forgive her because she came back with a pleasant story. Keane was Lena "teenage dream" that has come true but not for just "tonight" (as Katy Perry sings). A complex love that has gifted us a long and emotional journey.I want to thank Theodora for bringing on the table an...
  • Crystal Franklin
    Great read!As a typical TT book, I couldn't put it down. It was a great read , gave me the twist and turns that I love in her books. But I will have to agree that it did feel like it was missing a lot of the story, that's the only reason for the four star. Personally I love that you write on topics people are too scared or timid to write on but I feel as if you could have done a bit more with this one. Still great, just felt like it was missing t...
  • Nyree Harrell
    Well worth the waitKeane and Lena were the typical high school kids that allowed their fears and peer pressure and family pressures prevent them from stepping out on faith and taking a chance on each other. Keane was a bully, but Lena knew how to handle him, just too bad she wasn't able to do the same for her bully of a father. Parents mean well, but they should not try to relive their dreams thru their children. Max was a special type of love fo...
  • Flip
    ARC for honest review. I enjoyed it Keane was a total bully but in a very strange way I loved it, him and Lena balanced each other out. At times Lena kind of got on my nerves but their sex sessions were fire and filled with passion. I know that alot of you are going to have a good time reading it.
  • Kenya Smith
    Another hot book!Ms. Theodora has uncanny way of turning these alpha men from jerks to being adored. You hate them and halfway through the book you re truly rooting for them. The steamy scenes, which are always scrumptious had me like whoa!The subject matters explored were done with grace. Once again this author killed it. Read straight through because I could not put the book down.
  • Sherene Harris
    I am so greatful to have received an advance copy of this book by such an amazing author. This story is one of my favorites by her. I don't want to give anything I'm gonna say if you like to ride on roller coasters like the twisted timber then this book is for you because it takes you on an emotional journey, thru Keane and Lena's lives they make you angry, make you cry, make you laugh and surprise s the heck outta you. Keane and Lena's...
  • Kim Weston
    Ms.Taylor can certainly pen a story. This story has a couple of story devices I don't generally like; past to present story jumps and bully hero (esp. one from Boston), but it works. The past to present jumps was honestly probably the best way for the story to unfold. I was worried I wouldn't be able to finish it with the first introduction of Keane. He was a jerk, but thankfully not as horrible as I originally feared. Great story, full of great ...
  • Toni
    Pretty good,This is definitely a human complicated love story. Theodora has a gift in writing beautifully flawed real character love stories. This one was no different and is worth the read. I usually give five stars for the books I know I will definitely re-read cuz they were that good. This story was compelling and worth reading the first time, however I know of TTs stories I won’t likely read this one again. So 4 stars! Check it out.
  • Sim Gee
    Full of Twist and turnsWhen I tell you I loved this book! I devoured this read because it was a compelling story. It was an emotional roller coaster with a Hero who you will love to hate, and a heroine flawed but amazing all the same. It isn’t a perfect love story but it’s a real love story.
  • Debra Brower
    Just excellentthis is Therodora's best book so far. How Keane reacted to the Max revelation had me in tears. Her characters are always three dimensional but I have never rooted harder for any families happy ever after than I did for this family. Great job Theodore Taylor
  • Janet Riggs
    Fantastic As Usual I received this book as an ARC. The storyline grips you from page 1 and continues on throughout the entire book. Some subjects that are covered in this book are extremely important and handled very well. The book also had me laughing out loud in some places. Bravo Ms. Taylor. As usual you will always be an immediate click to read your work.
  • Tracey
    An advanced review copy read. A great read I would recommend. The author really builds the character relationships in the book for us to understand why Keane and Lena are the way they are. There are some real moments where either character makes you want to throat them or just throw up your hands up and say really?!!!
