    Beautiful & Moving Love Story!

    If You Were Mine is an incredibly beautiful and emotional love story. I was drawn in right from the start and didn't want it to end. The journey that Claire and Theo take is both heartbreaking and healing. The book is a stand alone, but it does include some characters and references from the author's previous books, Man Candy and After We Fall. Both are fantastic books that I definitely recommend, but they are not necessary to read prior to enjoying If You Were Mine. I loved Claire and Theo, both as a couple and independently. They are the perfect complement to each other. Melanie Harlow once again nails the witty (and sexy) banter between our characters and I was often left with just a goofy grin on my face while reading. The story is told from both Theo and Claire's points of views and it really helped to understand the struggles and emotions that our character's were experiencing. Theo is charismatic and charming, but inside he is beautifully broken and fighting his inner demons and past. Claire is kindhearted and compassionate, but lacks the confidence to go and put herself out there. Both characters allow fear to drive them to make certain life decisions in an effort to protect their hearts. They are both so wonderfully human that you can't help but feel a connection to them. I also loved that there was no outside drama or other love interests. The only thing our characters have to face are their own fears and insecurities. Yes, there is angst, but there are also incredibly swoony moments, and of course, scorching hot sexy times. Seriously, H-O-T! The chemistry between these two was palpable! This book makes you really examine the power of love to both raise you up and break you down. It's an emotional journey that will at times make your heart hurt, but just as quickly it will leave you hopeful and optimistic. The epilogue truly brought the story full circle and left my heart full. Thank you Melanie for writing this beautifully realistic and moving love story. *I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this title*

    Theo & Claire Are Perfection!

    I don't know how she does it. I really don't. Melanie Harlow has given us another masterpiece. The way she writes her stories puts you right there with them. Where do I even START? Okay, lemme start with yummy Theo, the hero of the book. Well hero to me because he is a broken, scared, scarred man who just makes you want to pull him into your arms and hug him tight. From the moment you meet "Fred", you will be under his trance and want to know more about him, about what makes him be the nomad he is. You want to yell at the page and say "YES, you ARE worth it!" Gah, love him! Then there is Claire. Oh Claire, you are a funny, beautiful soul. From the moment we read about her, she has you chuckling and feeling like she could be one of your best friends. She is such a good hearted person that you can't help but root for her and want her to get all she deserves. When Claire meets Theo in the coffee shop, I was laughing so hard. For a first scene, it really set the tone for the rest of the book. The way these two characters bantered was AMAZING! This is one of the many reasons I love Melanie's writing because she makes you feel right along with her characters and almost like you are sitting next to them, listening and watching. Watching Claire and Theo fight for their love was such a glorious story. Of course there were times I wanted to smack Theo upside the head and say "Snap out of it!", but it didn't take away from you wanting them to find their happily ever after. It was great to see such colorful secondary characters in the book as well. Jamie, Margot, Quinn, Jack, Josie and Aaron really added to the story. Seeing how Theo was with his brother Aaron and his family made you fall for him, as well as understand the brothers, so much more. I loved the side story of Josie and Aaron and almost wished they would get their own novella. Don't even get me started on how cute Uncle Theo is at the tea parties for his nieces...ovaries...EXPLODE! Epilogue...MY.HEART.STOPPED! Needless to say, this was such a fantastic book. I can't wait to reread it, because YES, it was just THAT good. Thank you Melanie for giving us another wonderful story!! <3 <3 <3

    If You Were Mine

    I really enjoyed reading If You Were Mine. I loved that the author wrote it in such a way that the reader couldn't help but fall for Theo at same time Claire was also falling for him. I really loved that aspect of it. I'm not going to lie and say Theo was easy to love because at times he wasn't. He was frustrating to the point that I wanted to shake him but he was also so very sweet and loveable. I loved both Theo and Claire were such a great match for each other, I loved that they grow together and apart, that you were able to see the influence each had on other. I loved that Claire was fierce and loyal, even in the face of adversity she fought. If you're a fan of contemporary romance I recommend you give this book a shot. It's a highly entertaining and wonderful story with some extra steamy sexy times. I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this title

    Claire and Theo's story is beautiful!

    ​ **4.5 Stars** I love anything Melanie brings us, so I knew I was going to love Claire and Theo's story. Every time Melanie writes a book, I feel like I know everything about the characters and it's watching one of my best friends fall in love with their person. I love it. If You Were Mine was no different. This can be read as a standalone, but it does mention characters from Man Candy and After We Fall. I love everything about Claire and Theo, not only did they fall in love, but to get there they had to learn lessons along the way. They had to learn about self acceptance, forgiveness, and how to love. Both of these characters had to overcome things in their past, whether it be to learn to love themselves and accept everything about themselves and to forgive themselves all things in their past. Claire is this all loving character who gives her all. But, she had to learn to love herself and accept all the good things about herself that Theo loved. Her self confidence become more prominent because of the love she had for Theo and the way he treated her. Theo hasn't had an easy life, but he is a very loving man. He is broken but he is truly amazing. He treats Claire with all the respect and love she deserves, but it doesn't come without trial and error. He has to learn to accept who he is to truly learn how to love. He has to accept that he can be loved and love someone in return. I loved everything about this story. Claire and Theo are two of my favorite characters. I can't wait to see what else Melanie brings us!

    Beautiful story

    Wow! This was an absolutely amazing all consuming read. I absolutely loved Claire and Theo. This story pulled you in with humor,ability to relate, and beautiful love. Theo was everything I love on a male character. He came with a cocky attitude and a beautiful heart that you couldn't help but fall in love with.I was rooting for him from the beginning and just wanted his to get what he deserved. Claire was so well thought out and fun. She had a little bit of all of us in her that made her that much more. I lover her sense of humor and amazing outlook on life but I loved her strength most. I have loved every book and was definitely not disappointed. I couldn't put it down and I can't recommend it enough!
