Turning slowly to face him, I can see that his eyes are still closed, but his mouth is tipped up into a smile which radiates freedom. I’ve never seen him look so carefree. He looks as if his sins of the past are washing away with the punishing rain.
I know it’s not that simple, but through pain and loss, we have bonded together and gained strength. And that strength suddenly animates me to tell Quinn how I feel.
“Quinn!” I scream to be heard over the harsh rain.
My eyes are mere slits, as the rain is so heavy, but the moment Quinn opens his magnetic eyes, I see that he has changed. Something inside of Quinn has shifted, and it’s beautiful.
“Quinn, I—” I repeat, my teeth chattering from the cold, but also from what I’m about to confess.
“You what, Red?” he questions, running a hand through his wet hair.
Another thunderbolt sizzles through the sky, and I yelp. Charging into his arms, I slap my hands over his ears because I’m terrified. I want to him tell him how I feel, but I’m afraid. Droplets of rain cascade down his tender face, but he doesn’t stir to brush them away, and I know I have his undivided attention as his gaze never wavers from my face.
This is not the way I wanted to do this, but I know that for now, this will have to do.
“Quinn…I…I love you,” I whisper, my hands still sitting firmly over his ears.
Once I say those three little words, the tightening in my chest lessens, and a small smile tugs at my lips because I’ve never felt so boundless with a decision. And nothing has ever felt so right before.


“Quinn Berkley is beautiful, inside and out. He’s shown me how to live, and through his strength, I have never felt so alive.”

Something like Love by Monica James is the third book in her Something like Normal series and it picks up right where book two, Something like Redemption left off. After the way the previous book ended I was really anxious to get my hands on this one and once again, the author did not disappoint. Just like with the first the parts of this series, I was fully engrossed in Mia and Quinn's story and I simply could not put this book down. I was just that curious to find out what would happen next and how the story would end. 

Mia's journey has been not been an easy one so far. It was filled with many ups and downs and bumps along the way and Quinn has been there for a large part of it, which is just one of the many reasons why I love his character so much. Quinn is the one who's always there to support her and help her through, but her past has made it difficult for Mia to trust people and fully let them into her life. And then there's also the fact that Quinn has a secret of this own. They both keep their hearts guarded and that's been the reason why, up until this point in the story, they've both been hesitant to define what's between them as love.

But that's exactly what it is. And maybe it's even more than "just" love. Either way, they both have to find a way to overcome their past and move on towards a bright future, preferably together. I will not go into much details about the plot, but I will say that most of the story revolves around Mia uncovering secrets from her past. She's finally confronted with her mother and the reason behind why she left her behind all those years ago. And most of the secrets she uncovers leave her shocked with their unexpected outcome.

Overall, I really enjoyed the third part of the series. It was once again a beautiful, heart wrenching and unforgettable story with many twists and turns that will keep you hooked the entire you're reading it. If you haven't read Something like Normal and Something like Redemption, the first two books in this series, I would highly recommend giving them a try first because Mia and Quinn's story is one that you don't want to miss and it will undoubtedly stay with you. At least, that's what it did with me. And after the way this book ended, all I can say is that I will be (not so) patiently awaiting the release of book 4! ;)

“Hope to live. I hope to live, Red. With you. After this is over. I hope to live a boring life with you.”
