Publisher's Summary

He's Miami's hottest new MVP. She's the woman who makes it all worthwhile. 

I brought us to Miami, my engagement ring on Roxie's finger, and nothing feels better than this woman by my side. She keeps me home, keeps me grounded, and having her with me on this new journey means everything. 

I'm well aware of what Roxie's given up to come to Miami with me: an entire other life, and any sacrifices I've made are none compared to that. This woman is made for me and I am for her, and if we can get through what we dealt with in college, I think we'll be golden here. 

The celebrity that comes with this life is on a whole new level; parties, groupies, and paparazzi a given when being a professional athlete. The media has something to say about us being together, the people I'm surrounded by the same, but nothing's changed for me. She makes this whole thing worthwhile and always will. 

She sees me like the world doesn't see, and I notice her in exactly the same ways. This new environment will try to change her, make her lose faith in me, us, and even herself, but I'll make sure she sees the truth. 

And hold on to that for us both if I have to.

Good story, wrong female narrator.

I really wish these publishers could find black women to read for characters that are black. This woman sounds like Ilyana Kadushin (Twilight narrator) and I was halfway through the first book before I could enjoy it. I almost returned it right away except for the reviews.

AMAZING!!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

How good is this book? Let me put it this way, this audio book was 11 hours and I listened it ALL in one sitting!! Never pausing, never stopping. It was such an INCREDIBLE love story. Roxie and Griffin are a fantastic couple and I rooted for them till the very end! Their love for each other is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I cried in this book. I felt their pain, I felt their love, so good was the writing. I will definitely be reading more books from this author.

I was definitely heart broken when I realized that the book was finished, I wanted it to go on forever. Lol. This book is deserves a new word which holds greater meaning than SPECTACULAR. Definitely listening again.

Loved Even More...

What did you love best about Loved by You?

I loved the idea of Griffin and Roxie, how in sync they are, but also how trusting they are. They both had a rude awakening to the motives of people they had to deal with on a routine basis.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Loved by You?

Roxie's denial that she had a problem.

ok<br />

I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars if not for the use of God's name in vain. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. It dealt with depression and body image and that was good. I can't wait to read more about his brothers and hopefully his father. BBW/BWWM romance.

Great story!

If you could sum up Loved by You in three words, what would they be?

i was super engaged with this one. I think the only thing that annoyed me was the way the male narrator said the name Roxie. It got so annoying after a while but really loved this one! I wish this author had more audiobooks! I'd totally buy more!

What happened to Roxie!!!

I think this was the hardest Audible I ever had to sit through!!! The Roxie in this book was totally different from the Roxie in the first book. This Roxie was horrible. She had self-esteem issues and always assumed that Griffin would come after her. Griffin never stood up for himself. Everyone in this book took advantage of him, including Roxie. This whole book was annoying! The narriation was horrendous!!! Both of them, the male and female were horrible. The accent after the first paragraph was enough for me! The male accent was especially annoying. I think the author should have just left the book alone. The second book wasn't needed.

Must Purchase

Loved every minute of both books! The character Roxie was so relatable because of my own struggles being a black woman and plus size this book actually gave me hope. Never giving up on yourself and I hope one day I will find my Griffin

Beautifully written... Emotional rollercoaster

Would you listen to Loved by You again? Why?

Yes but not right away. Very emotional book and had a book hangover. The depths of the characters and story was intense and touched on a few deep subjects.

Who was your favorite character and why?

LOVED Chandler Griffen He's the WHOLE package. Strong, brave, emotional, caring, loyal, tough, etc etc

Have you listened to any of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I heard them in the first book of this series and also in Bitten by Nicole Garcia

If you could take any character from Loved by You out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Chandler's older brother because he needs someone to show him how to be cared for.

Any additional comments?

I ABSOLUTELY loved this book. I think Kai voice is addictive and he emotes very well and also stays in character. Wen is very good too, but in I just didnt feel her character as much. Either way they seem to work well together. They easily give the characters life.The book itself was great.... I literally was in tears during certain parts.... I HIGHLY recommend.

ENJOYABLE

i have read both books and really enjoyed the audible of book 1. I am thrilled that they use the same narrators from book 1. Roxie and Griffin story is believable.
