Book Review: As Long As You Love Me (2B Trilogy #2) by Ann Aguirre

Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. There are the justifications she gives to everyone else—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. And then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.

Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He can’t pinpoint exactly what’s missing until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her. But he’s the guy that women love and leave—not the one who makes them think of forever.

Though she’s terrified of opening up, Lauren’s ready to take that chance. Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

I loved the first book in Ann Aguirre's 2B Trilogy, I Want it That Way.  I fell in love with Aguirre's characters, not to mention her realistic plots and steamy romances.
I read As Long As You Love Me in one sitting on the day it was released and wouldn't have had it any other way.  I thought Lauren was going to be a great main character---she had some mystery to her in book one and I was excited to get to know her better.  Little did I know just how much I would end up identifying and liking Lauren.  She was much more like me than Nadia (the heroine from book one).
I love so many things about this series.  I love that the books are being released close together.  And they are stand-alone novels.  I love that!  No cliffhangers--yay!  The characters are so easy to relate to.  I always find myself really liking the characters as people, and thinking of them as I would a friend, hoping for their happy endings.  The love stories in this series are pretty steamy---definitely new adult.  I had no idea Aguirre could write like this...whoa.
If you like contemporary romance, I highly recommend the 2B Trilogy!
