So This Is Love (Novel)

| /

So This Is Love is the continuation of the short story "A Delectable No-No" which appears in Forbidden: An Anthology. I recommend readers read "A Delectable No-No" before reading So This Is Love since several scenes references instances from that short story.



Ayanna Dale has willingly put herself in a precarious situation. She only planned to get back at her cheating ex-boyfriend when she cheated back with her friend, Dallas. She didn't honestly expect for anything serious to result from her decision. The latter becomes a source of worry for a jaded Ayanna, not because Dallas is her friend. But because he's also her ex-boyfriend’s brother.

Dallas Roque has always known what he’s wanted and, like his skills on the basketball court, he has taken his time to act on his undisclosed feelings for his friend Ayanna. Though her impulsive decision pushes him to do what he’s always wanted to do, he's unprepared for the aftermath, especially when his heart gets caught in the crossfire.

In any other circumstance, what happened between Ayanna and Dallas should’ve never happened. But when it does, it unearths something else between them that neither of them planned for - a beautiful discovery of what love really looks like, despite how it bloomed.

Beautiful. Simply Amazing. This book was perfect. How the relationship started was the most conventional but grew in to something so beautiful so relatable. So this is love is all that and so much more. It’s like Dallas pulled her apart and put her back together again. He showed her what love was suppose to be and how it was suppose to feel. This book had sugar, spice and everything nice. Both characters deserved the love they received. The perfect ending for a beginning that not the most conventional. Brookelyn you did that girl. This book touched my soul. It was so relatable. It felt so real. I felt like I was a part of the book just watching their lives unfold and that’s the best feeling you can get as a reader. I thank you for this beautiful work of art. This is a portrait of Mona Lisa. Dallas and Ayanna’s story is a work of art. A masterpiece.
