Review Source: eARC
I've loved once. I gave everything that I had to that love. Blindly believing that nothing could ever take that feeling away from me. Away from us. And when my little world of happiness was ripped from my fingers, I felt a loss that still haunts me to this day. 

Now I use that lingering grief as a shield to keep my heart from loving again. It's that fear that keeps me from letting anyone, except my daughter, get close enough to make it hurt. To make my heart bleed when I inevitably lose again. 

Until the day I met Liam Beckett and everything I thought I had protected myself from was shoved back in my face. 

He's on a mission to prove to me that a love worth having is a love worth fighting for.

Bleeding Love by Harper Sloan was a very, very emotional book from many standpoints. While Bleeding Love is the second book in the Hpe Town Series, this can be read as a standalone novel. It is a very good book to read as a standalone as I was not lost at all while reading this book.

We meet Megan, a window with her daughter, Molly. Her husband, Jack was killed in action while deployed,and when it becoms clear that there is a hidden status about one of the characters, it leads the reader into a sort of haze that makes them keep wondering what happened to our wonderfully written Megan. We also meet Liam (aka Lee) who has had the hots for Megan since the day he met her. He knows she's hurting, and he wants to have the chance to fix that.

Harper Sloan did such a wonderful job with Bleeding Love. Jack is not a main character in this book, but is a main memory that is Magan's main focus through a good portion of the novel. When she finally realizes that her and Jack's relationship was not all that and a bag of chips, the realization hits hard for her, Liam, and the reader. It hits hard, and could potentially hit home for a few readers.

This was one hot, steamy, emotional read. Honestly, the ONLY thing that really started to get on my nerves was Lee's overuse of "Darlin". It was to the point, if I saw him talking, I knew to justgo ahead and throw it in there somewhere because he had said it in every previous sentence to Megan. That is my only dislike in the whole novel.

A wonderful 5 Bars to Harper Sloan on a book well written!

His mouth leaves mine and with his hand still on my leg, he demands, “Dig your heels in deep, baby.”

I give him what he wants, but not because he told me to. I give him what he wants because when his hand leaves my leg and pushes into the mattress, bringing his body up he goes even deeper into my body and those heels push hard.

Just as he demanded earlier, my hands go to his shoulders on my own accord and as he takes my body hard, my nails dig in with my heels still pushing hard against the small of his back. Our eyes never leave each other’s probing gaze. Never once do I take my eyes away from his, so full of lust that I know there isn’t an ounce of control left in his body.

He drops his head and I lift up to meet him in a kiss so sweet it doesn’t match the powerful way that he’s taking my body. A kiss that gives me more than words ever could at this moment. His hips slow and as his tongue rolls against mine, his hips start to take me in slow, deep rolls. He doesn’t pull back, just rocks his hips against mine.

I push up and cry out when he slips even deeper.

His lips come from mine and his hooded eyes open a sliver. “Feels like heaven,” he says softly. “Everything, darlin’. Feels like everything.”
Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed 'Estrogen Ocean', much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero--the super alpha kind!

Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn't take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
