Love and Other Words

By Christina Lauren

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

From the international bestselling author of Dating You, Hating You comes a new, unmissable story of love and hope.

The heart may hide, but it never forgets.

Macy Sorensen is settling into an ambitious if emotionally tepid routine: work hard as a new pediatrics resident, plan her wedding to an older, financially secure man, keep her head down and heart tucked away.

But when she runs into Elliot Petropoulos - the first and only love of her life - the careful bubble she's constructed begins to dissolve. Once upon a time, Elliot was Macy's entire world - growing from her gangly teen friend into the man who coaxed her heart open again after the loss of her mother . . . only to break it on the very night he declared his love for her.

Told in alternating timelines between Then and Now, teenage Elliot and Macy grow from friends to much more - spending weekends and lazy summers together in a house outside of San Francisco reading books, sharing favourite words, and talking through their growing pains and triumphs. As adults, they have become strangers to one another until their chance reunion. Although their memories are obscured by the agony of what happened that night so many years ago, Elliot will come to understand the truth behind Macy's decade-long silence, and will have to overcome the past and himself to revive her faith in the possibility of an all-consuming love.

The first women's fiction novel from New York Times and No. 1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Dating You, Hating You).

Luke Everett has never played it safe. When herding cattle wasn't enough of an adrenaline rush, the rodeo circuit came next. His heart is the one thing he won't ever put on the line, and he knows how to protect himself from the kind of pain that can't be healed with a little rest and relaxation--or an occasional hospital visit. But after a rodeo accident, Luke's brother puts him on the special events staff with Lily, the one woman he's always wanted--but couldn't have.Working with Luke gives Lily Green the opportunity to see the man behind the fearless cowboy façade, and she likes what she sees. So much so that it's hard to deny the attraction simmering between them. But when she learns how much Luke knew about her ex-husband's infidelity, she'll have to decide if Luke is truly the man she can trust or if their luck just ran out.

Just friends. Just friends. JUST FRIENDS. If they repeat it enough, maybe it'll be true . . . Hazel Camille Bradford knows she's a lot to take - and frankly, most men aren't up to the challenge. If her army of pets and taste for the absurd don't send them running, her lack of filter and tendency to say exactly the wrong thing will. Their loss. Not everyone can handle a Hazel. Josh Im has known Hazel since college. From the first night they met - when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes - to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there's nothing between them . . . right?New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Christina Lauren (Roomies, Beautiful Bastard) tells the laugh-out-loud, uplifting story of two people who are completely wrong for each other - in all the right ways.
