Blog Tour {ARC Review + Excerpt + Giveaway}: Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan

Title: Bleeding Love
Author: Harper Sloan
Series: Hope Town Series #2
Genre: contemporary romance, new adult
Release Day: July 14th 2015
I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day.

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again.

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face.

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

My Review

Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 **bubblegum** STARS

“A love worth having, is worth fighting for.”

That was sweet. Harper Sloan has once more proven she is an excellent guilty pleasure author and it is entirely possible that I am a teensy, tiny bit addicted to her books. The moment the ARC hit my kindle I was on it and I didn't stop until I was done and the sun had risen again.

Sleepless night well spent. An insomniac's dream.

Bleeding Love is the second instalment in the Hope Town Series, which also happens to be a spin-off for the Corps Security Series. Basically the children getting a love life and it's glorious and absolutely shameless fun.

“Open your eyes, Megan. It's time to grab the rope.”

Megan has been living in perpetual darkness for three years, since her husband and best friend died overseas while serving in the army. After that her life once again became barely tolerable, with the only light in her life being Molly, her five year old daughter.

The moment Liam 'Lee' Beckett first laid eyes on Megan he knew she was the one for him. But with all the demons surrounding her he kept his distance, waiting for the right time. And then Dani and Cohen's wedding happened and everything changed for one night.

I really liked both characters a lot. Megan was a very strong heroine, justifiably reluctant since she has not only herself to look after but her daughter as well. It was heartbreaking to see her unravel and finally let people in.

Lee, just like his father Beck before him stole my heart. He is such a caring, thoughtful character and determined in his pursuit of Megan. Initially I was concerned that his advances would come over too stalkerish, but it went well in the end.

All I can say is their relationship was sincere, moving and done at a fitting pace. On top of that I loved catching up with some of my favourite characters from previous instalments, but Axel the babysitter has to be the highlight for me.

“One thing I know for sure. I want this. I want this and Liam’s going to give it to me.”

Bleeding Love was a really nice read, fluidly written and hooks you right from the start. It had a lot of sweetness, amble amounts of heartbreak and quite a few laughs. A well rounded read with a lot of heart instead and no unnecessary drama. If you like that sort of thing, look no further this is your book.

So far, most definitely my favourite part in the spin-off Hope Town series. Can’t wait to read more.

His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”

I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.

Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.

He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.

I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.

His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”

About the Author

harper sloan bio.jpgHarper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind! 

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
