Review: Doing It for Love by Cassie Mae (All About Love #1)

Note: This ARC was provided by Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for an honest review.

Elizabeth Fanning and Landon Wangford have been in love for four years and their engagement was one that their closest friends knew was going to happen sooner or later. After all, Liz and Landon are one of those couples that simply made sense and were meant for a lifetime together. Their sex life, however, could use a bit more excitement and the idea of waiting to have sex again until their wedding night seems like a pretty good one. It's just five months. They'll make it. And they've got their respective choices for their honeymoon on the line so neither Liz or Landon wants to be the first to give in. But with people thinking they're too young at twenty-two and twenty-seven to get married, her mother-in-law purposely calling her "Libby", and mounting money issues, their lackluster sex life is now the least of their problems.

Doing It for Love is the first book in the All About Love contemporary romance series from author Cassie Mae, whose debut novel, Reasons I Fell for the Funny Fat Friend (which she wrote using the name Becca Ann), I reviewed in February 2013 (and which you can read on Goodreads) and was one of my favorite reads for that year. I knew it then and this series starter proves it now--Cassie Mae is an author after my own heart, with a knack for creating a wonderfully engaging story filled with wit and warmth and coming up with characters like Liz and Landon and their supportive set of friends who grab a little piece of your heart. Not only do you fall for Liz and Landon, but you want to learn more about everyone else, making you eager for the next book in what looks like a very promising series worth adding to the to-be-read pile.

One of my favorite things about this book was the fact that Liz and Landon were already together and had been a couple for four years but we still get to know about how they fell in love by way of a couple of flashbacks. They don't seem to have any major issues, but no couple is problem-free, even one as committed to each other as Liz and Landon. Some of their issues are easily fixable, while you take what you can get from the rest, because hey, not everything can be fixed especially when the other party involved is unwilling. With all the trust and respect Liz and Landon have for one another, what these two truly needed was a dose of faith and communication, but there was no denying just how much they love each other. This was a feel-good romance that had me smiling like silly. Doing It for Love gets 4.5 stars. ♥
