    LGBTQIA Romance M/M

    American Love Story by Adriana Herrera Dreamers #3 Patrice Dennis and Easton Archer have a complicated relationship. Patrice, though highly educated seems to have a chip on his shoulder...though that chip and sometimes fear that leads to political activism and social media output is verifiable, real and threatening. Easton is a man who wants justice for those who deserve it and puts himself out there in the courtroom. He may appear easy going but is deeper than you might think. The two come to loggerheads on issues from time to time with Patrice, more than Easton, backing away. That backing away and holding himself from Easton began to wear at times. The two do work through their issues and find their way to a HEA but it is not easy. Okay, that said, I have to say that this book made me think. I live overseas and though I do hear news from time to time had not heard of “Driving While Black” and that had me looking it up online. I have seen some clips that are scary but I had no idea that there is information out there telling people of color how to respond when pulled over by law enforcement. When I mentioned it to my daughter and sister they were surprised that I had not heard the term. Both were aware and concerned about the situation as it is now in the USA. SO...that said...I have to say this is a timely and important as well as educational story in more ways than one. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Do I want to read more by this author? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and Carina Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    Very Enjoyable

    This was a great third installment in the series. Patrice and Easton were great characters, both were engaging and likable. I enjoyed seeing them come together despite their different backgrounds, all a very enjoyable read. *I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by NetGalley*

    Angsty goodness, wonderful story audio performance

    Audio review: Story – 5 Performance – 5 Overall – 5 Angsty goodness, wonderful story, wonderful audio performance. American Love Story is the third book in Adriana Herrera's Dreamers series but you don't need to read the others to enjoy it. I'm a bit late posting this review and here's why: While I got an advance copy of the book from NetGalley for review purposes, I decided that I really wanted to listen to this one instead of read it. Because I like to listen to audiobooks with as little interruption as possible it took me a while to make time for this one. As I said in my review of American Fairytale, when I read American Dreamer, book one in this series, I was a little frustrated because I didn't know how to pronounce all of the various ethnic names in the book. This is MY problem, not the author's; I just always want to know the proper way to pronounce things even if I can't say them correctly myself. So, once again I wanted to listen to the book so that I could better embrace the story. Sean Crisden totally outdid himself with his performance of American Love Story. The many voices he did were fantastic. I loved his performance of American Fairy Tale, and really didn't think it could get any better but it did. Please read the book blurb as it describes the story much better than I can. Easton Archer and Patrice Denis (pronounced Denee) seem like complete opposites. Easton is white, wealthy and grew up with lots of privilege. Patrice was born in Haiti and he's a university professor who had to work hard to get where he is. He's an activist fighting for justice for people of color. His activism could negatively impact Easton's career and derail their tenuous romantic relationship. When a crisis happens, it threatens to destroy Easton and Patrice's love story. For a while it seems like the relationship won't survive but this is a romance and covered by the Carina Press Romance Promise of an HEA/HFN. While American Love Story was a bit angsty (I actually like a bit of angst in the books I read), it wasn't overwhelmingly so and the good feels and sexy time more than made up for it. I am so happy to know that there will be a fourth book in this series; I can't wait to read it. A review copy of the ebook was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Review: American Love Story, by Adriana Herrera

    If it wasn't for how strong of series starter American Dreamer was, I think that American Love Story would be my favorite book in the Dreamers series, so far. I still have American Fairytale to read. So we'll see if that changes. This book has such a strong story that kept unfolding all the way to the end. The journey Patrice and Easton have to travel to get to their HEA is such a rough one. Between both of their flaws and they way their careers naturally can come into conflict, there was no easy path for them. No matter how badly they both wanted it, at times it seemed like it would never happen. Herrera is great at writing such a realistic story of the struggles of love, life, and curveballs that come out of nowhere. Another thing I thought was done well in this book was how racism within a police force and a community's politics aren't something that only happens in a big city. It can be, and is, an issue all over. Until it's addressed in a serious way, it can continue and lead to an unwanted outcome. Herrera doesn't beat the reader over the head with a message. The author hasn't done that in any of her books so far. What she does do is show the realities people face in life and how things can play out from inside and outside of the system. This is how the world is and this is what people like their characters deal with daily. It's not something to leave out of a story. I keep coming back to Herrera's books for their realism, fully fleshed out characters who seem like they're actually real, and unapologetic use of food to get you wanting to hang out with her characters to try all the amazing dishes. It's great that I found out the author has more books coming out this year. I was almost out of things to read from her and that's not something I want to happen.
