NEW RELEASE!!! That’s the Way I Loved You by Carrie Aarons! + MY REVIEW

Designed by Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations



This town ain’t big enough for the two of us.
Which is why I left.

I was determined never to return to Hale, Texas. But when my new life in the Big Apple throws me a curve ball, I have to go back to tie up loose ends. One of those being him.

Jason Whitney was my first everything. Kiss, love, epic heartbreak. He shattered my world once upon a time, and apparently, he’s not done yet.

With old demons lurking around every corner, hightailing it out of my hometown is at the top of my list. Complete my unfinished business, and I get to leave any memory of my country existence behind.

Only, with each day I spend in it, with each moment I spend with him, I’m turning back into the girl who laid in the tall grass and swam in the creek all those years ago.

And I’m not sure that who I was is ready to let me go again.


We drew a line down the middle, and neither of us has crossed it.
That is, until Savannah Reese blew back into our hometown.

The day my high school sweetheart left, she took my whole heart with her. We promised each other forever, made plans that only teenagers could believe in, and crashed and burned on the grandest of scales.

When Savannah last saw me, I was a disgraced high school athlete. All washed up, I took it out on the only person who loved me. Then her world really fell apart, and I was too selfish to care.

Now she’s back, ready to sell the only remaining thing tying us to each other. I’ve been breaking my back for the last ten years not to think about her, not to be reminded of the love we shared.

But now that she’s right here, it’s impossible to forget how we used to be. Or let go of what we still are.

That’s the Way I Loved You by Carrie Aarons is now live! This book is a small town, second chance romance inspired by the movie Sweet Home Alabama, and it will give you ALL the feels!

A fabulous second-chance romance with yummy characters! Savannah is a gal after my heart. Strong, sassy, stubborn and someone goes after what they want. A series of horrible events left her reeling and she ran…all the way to NYC. That’s a lot for a small town girl with only her dreams to get her through the rough times. But she did it! After ten years she has her dream job, a dream boyfriend and looking at an Upper East side penthouse. Stop the horses! Savvy’s old life is coming back to bite her in the behind. She’s forced back to go back to her small home town to take care of an old problem with her old boyfriend. Oh, Jason! The boy she left behind turned into a studly man perfection. Gone is the broken boy with the broken dreams but he still has a broken heart. Even after ten years he hasn’t moved on. He’s waiting for Savvy to come home to him. These two are scorching hot soulmates that are still best friends with a connection is still strong even after ten years apart. Savvy reconnects with her family and friends and soon it’s like old times as she and Jason work to repair their cabin to sell so she can go back to her life in NYC. Jason’s got other plans though. He plans on showing her that they belong together. The emotion and angst as Savvy realizes her heart will always belong to Jason even if she’s not willing to give up her life in the big city is heart wrenching. She also needs to deal with old family hurts and wounds. Jason has turned his life around and become a successful winery owner. It seems impossible for these two to be together when both have lives and work in different time zones. The only issue I have with the story is the handling of the winery/vineyard especially the idea that nothing goes on in the winter. Unless you’re familiar with the wine business you wouldn’t notice the discrepancies and it really didn’t effect my enjoyment of this swoon-worthy romance. I loved the small town atmosphere and wonderful family and friends in the story. This author always gives us scrumptious characters and a heart-melting romance and this one is terrific. A must read!

Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She’s a Jersey girl living in Texas with her husband, daughter and furry son.
