Publisher's Summary

Outspoken and more than capable of backing up her words, loan officer, Denise Buhari, is finally back on her feet after years of rebuilding her life following a horrible marriage and divorce. But just when she is ready to head into a future she's sure will be bright, the rug is pulled out from under her again.  

Tattoo artist, Hasaan Peterson, meets Denise through her job, and although their relationship is initially contentious, it soon blossoms into a friendship that leads them to passionate feelings neither can deny.  

Could it be that Denise and Hasaan are destined to share a love that is unavoidable and undeniable...a real love? Contains mature themes.

Alexandria House has done it AGAIN!!!

Real Love was so incredibly good! The story was a wonderful combination of intriguing, soulful, captivating and sexy. I loved the twist that was revealed about the past of one of the characters. I like how Alexandria House writes from the perspective of both the man and the woman. That is one of the main reasons I love her books. The narration by Jakobi Diem and Mari was really good. Hands down they are the best audio books narrators I have ever listened to!

Glad To Be Done With This Series

Normally when I finish a series, I'm always a little sad because I enjoyed it so much. Well, that's not the case with the Love After Series. I have never been so happy to be done with a series. I can say I've listened to these books and NEVER do it again. Here's a few cons about Real Love that annoyed me: 1. Denise didn't get fired. She got laid off. You don't get a severance package if you're fired. I expect an author to know the difference between being fired and being laid off. 2. Denise didn't even like her job so, what was with the unnecessary melancholy?!!! Especially, when her BFF's rich husband offered to give her a job! 3. What is with the consistent use of the term VD?!!! Did we time travel back to the 70's?!!! No one gets a VD but, they do get an STD! I'm fairly certain the author is younger than me so, it's weird she would use VD instead STD. 4. Why did Denise all of a sudden turn into a jealous shrew?!!! Didn't her ex-husband steal from her?!!! Christian didn't cheat on her. The way she acted when Haasan got that phone call about his Rafik was ridiculous and uncalled for. 5. I never thought the term baby could be overused but, after listening to this book, I realized it can. 6. Denise's reaction when she caught Haasan at the coffee shop with Mrs. Wycliff was absolutely ridiculous. After the sh*t she pulled, I really wish Haasan had left her. I really hate that I didn't enjoy this series but, fortunately, I've read other books by Alexandria House so I'll keep her on my favorite author list.

Not the author’s best...

Boring compared to the first two. I love this author and feel privileged to be reading her old work through audio, but Denise despite being plus sized wasn’t very interesting. Hassan was a little more so as a tattoo artist but the book feels more like love scene after love scene with no distinct plot. I still Stan for this author though...

Try and get pass the cougar

if you can get past the Cougar narrator ( did a great job, but too old to be pair with Jakobi. This is an actually a good story. Could have ending with book 2 tease.

Not my Fav

I listened to all three in this series. This one was my least favorite. Slow to start in on their relationship, and she’s too crazy. Glad there was a twist that made it worth finishing to the end. Overall still pretty good tho. Just not bad whereas I loved the other two.
