    Christina Lauren, what have you done to me??? I am a hot mess right now. I’m talking about ALL the feels, ya’ll. Love and Other Words is an adult contemporary romance that is equal parts coming of age, friends becoming lovers, loss and heartache, and second chance romance—all combined in one potent fictional cocktail. It is 100% amazing!

    You know you have a winner on your hands when you lose sight of the fact that you’re reading fiction because the story seems so real. The intricacies of the plot

    I really really really really liked this one, slow burn and all! Although I will say there was a point where I felt like the love interest was forgiven WAY too easily for something that I personally would never have gotten over, but it was still really good. Christina Lauren are back to being autobuy authors for me!

    5 “I’ve Loved You My Whole Life” Stars!

    -It never occurred to me that love could be anything other than all-consuming. Even as a child, I knew I never wanted anything less.



    Macy Sorensen is a 28 yr. old woman living in San Francisco. She works in pediatrics in critical care, and is engaged to a great guy. She lives a life she’s content with, but doesn’t ever fully invest her heart. Then a chance encounter with the guy who used to be her entire world makes her feel completely unraveled. Her perfec

    Review at Of Pens and Pages.

    Christina Lauren packed quite a punch with Love and Other Words. I was a complete mess when I finished it! My heart hurt, my eyes were red, and it took me a really long time to articulate my thoughts about everything I've read. I finished this in one sitting, and was just about wrecked when I read the last line. As I've said, this author duo sure knows how to pack a punch.

    Alternating between the past and present, Love and Other Words tells the story of Macy So

    Do you think about me?" I asked. Now that he'd raised it, the question gnawed at me.

    "Sometimes it feels like I think about you every minute," he whispered.


    This book will reel you in with the beauty of first love, the mystery of Macy and Elliot's fallout, and anticipation and hope for their second chance. Just when you're floating on air from reading Macy and Elliot's growing friendship and blooming love, you get punched in the gut and your heart is wrenched out of your body. This book is a rollercoaster of emotions in beautiful prose, let me tell you.

    It was so heartwarming to see Macy and Elliot grow up together and become closer each day. Their past was the sweetest, one where you can't control the smile on your face when you think about it. They're friends, but so much more. These two people understood each other, empathized with one another, and stood by each other when they were young. I was fully invested in them and wanted to know what happened to make Macy leave.

    Aside from Macy and Elliot's relationship, we see different dynamics in the story—Macy and her mother through her mother's letters, Macy and her father, Elliot and his family. Those relationships are what made Macy and Elliot who they are as people. Christina Lauren made wonderful characters, people I adore.

    Since the story was told in Macy's POV, we get an intimate view of her thoughts and feelings. I adore Macy and admire her for her strength and resilience. Getting inside her head was an emotional experience, but it was one I would never regret. In this story, while I loved Elliot, I loved Macy even more.

    This book is unlike any of Christina Lauren's works, but sometimes different does not mean it's a bad thing. This book is poignant and unforgettable, and will tug on one's heartstrings. Love and Other Words is a coming of age story of love and loss, forgiving and moving on, and of family, friends, and soulmates. It's a story of coming home.

    Tropes: Childhood Friends, Friends to Lovers, Neighbors, Second Chance

    POV: First Person, Female POV

    I give myself three more seconds to look at him, and it’s like another punch to the gut. He’s my person. He’s always been my person. My best friend, my confidant, probably the love of my life. And I’ve spent the last eleven years being angry and self-righteous. But at the end of the day, he tore a hole in us, and fate ripped it wide open.



    LOVE AND OTHER WORDS is by far, different from any of the previous books I have read by Christina Laure
