Something Like Love is my favorite installment in this series so far. As Mia would say… shit is about to get real! It picks up immediately where book two leaves off. I’ve been dying to find out what has happened with Mia and Quinn. Some secrets were revealed, some bombs were dropped, and after the ending of this book- you are once again left dying to get to the next one!
I thought coming here would answer all the questions of my past. But it has done the opposite. I am now plagued with so many questions, ones I’m afraid may never be answered.

Mia is out to get her questions answered. And there is only one person who can do that for her. Mia is also out for revenge. She’s out for blood. She knows that the people in her life she’s sworn to protect won’t be safe until the threats are eliminated. But it’s not easy. Mia has a lot going on. Rekindling some familial relationships, being the run, keeping her friendships with the people most important to her, and then there is Quinn. Quinn and his secrets. Quinn who has stood beside her no matter what. I just love Mia and I love Quinn.

Mia Lee is the epitome of a bad ass heroine. She is tough, strong, brave, but on top of all that, she has heart. Mia would do anything for those she loves. The few people in her life that she considers family, she would sacrifice anything to keep them safe. Quinn Berkley. He has the piercings, the rough exterior and the damaged past, but this boy has a heart of gold. I just adore Quinn. I love his devotion to Mia, his strength and determination.
Quinn Berkley is beautiful, inside and out. He’s shown me how to live, and through his strength, I have never felt so alive.

What I love most about the Something Like Normal series is they are fast paced books you won’t want to put down. You never know whats going to happen when you turn the next page. It’s not just a love story or a suspense story or even a story of friendship and self discovery, but it’s a great mix of all of the above. I love the main characters and their journey of finding themselves, finding love, and just finding a way to survive. I can’t wait to see where the next and final book takes Mia and Quinn!

“With you, Red… this is what it feels like.”

“Like what?” I whisper so softly, I’m afraid he may not have heard me. But his reply lets me know that he’s heard me, loud and clear.

“Like love. Because this… with you, it feels… something like love.”

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
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.
