As Long As You Love Me is the second book in the 2B series but it can easily be a standalone. The book follows Lauren as she moves back home after losing her scholarship to college where she didn’t feel like it was a fit for her. While she’s at the store she runs into her longtime crush Rob (the older brother of her best friend Nadia who the first book in the series is about) and they end up spending time together fixing up his house - as friends, since he has a girlfriend.
Both of the main characters have their own issues to work through. Lauren is portrayed as a part girl in the first book, but she’s nothing like that in this book. She deals with anxiety and was using drinking as a means to cope with her problems, in this book she is working on being her best self. Rob, while he is incredibly gorgeous, is very insecure as many of the people around him seem to have the mentality of ‘well at least he’s pretty.’ There’s a line in the book that goes along the lines of “My grandmother once said ‘he’s just smart enough to know he’s dumb’”. Lauren and Rob are constantly bolstering each other up and are great for each other that way as they navigate through life and family issues.
I loved the chemistry between Lauren and Rob! It was a slower burn and well worth the wait. They are both real characters and are developed so well that you’re invested in their story. You want the best for them and you can see where they are coming from with the decisions they make.
Bailey Carr gave a better performance in this book than the first book, or maybe it’s that I thought that she was the perfect fit for Lauren. Her pitch and tone were ideal for the character. She’s easy to listen to and made it an enjoyable experience.
I got this book as part of the Romance Package so I didn’t need to use a credit. If you have the Romance Package I recommend it, it’s got a lot of heart and more depth than expected. You do not need to read or listen to the first book to enjoy this one!
