Review - Love Under Construction by Aubree Valentine

Love Under Construction
by Aubree Valentine
Series: 425 Madison, #6
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 13, 2019

She hates me.
I can’t say I blame her, in fact, I thought it was best this way.
That was until I realized just how much I really cared for her.
Now all I want to do is protect her.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

I hate him.
He's always been a thorn in my side.
When my life is flipped upside down, and I'm fighting to stay above water, things between us shift, and I begin to question everything I thought I knew about the boy next door.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I never should have kissed him. It was only a matter of time.

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

This was an enjoyable read that had some wonderful scenes between the H/h but could have used just a little more backstory at times and bit more editing.

I really loved all the tender moments between Olivia and Jameson, watching them forget their history and allowing their hearts to lead them. Olivia was a bit frustrating and I never really bought into all the reasons she “hated” Jameson, so it was hard to watch her go hot and cold with him, and maybe with a bit more backstory it would have made it easier to relate to Olivia’s feelings for Jameson. Jameson was just so sweet and really proved he was there for Olivia. I didn’t necessarily agree with him keeping some things from Olivia, but knowing the close relationship he had with Olivia’s dad I could almost forgive him.

I am really enjoying the 425 Madison Series and, even though there isn’t a lot of overlap with the characters between books, I really love seeing someone I “know” pop up in the different stories. I could have done without the guest appearance of Sara in this one though – it seemed a bit out of place in the context of the story.

Although this isn’t my favorite story in this series, it is definitely worth checking out - as is the rest of the 425 Madison series!
