Loving Lawson (Loving Lawson, #1) by R.J. Lewis

When boyfriend Ryker Lawson is sentenced to prison on drug charges, Allie Wallace faces a life changing event. After being turned away from her mother and on the verge of homelessness, she turns to an unexpected source for help: her boyfriend's older brother.

Heath Lawson is everything his brother isn't: a rough, street fighter that can't commit to a girl if his life depended on it. He likes being on his own. Likes living the simple life. But when Allie turns up asking for help, he has no choice but to take her in.

Knowing Allie most of her life, help is something Heath is more than ready to offer. After all, she's the love of his brother's life.

However, what he doesn't expect... is that she's also his too.


This is my third Lewis book and I wished she wrote more! I always get a crazy ride with her reads.

Two Brothers + One Girl

One is in prison, Ryker

One is a fighter, Heath

One is pregnant, Allie

I usually don’t do love triangles, but this really isn’t one, but both brothers play a role, even though one is in prison. Allie is kicked out of her house because she got knocked up. She doesn’t have any place to go and her baby-daddy isn’t available. So, she goes to the brother, Heath.

Heath is your typical hero fighter. He’s a ladies man, he doesn’t do serious relationships. He works as a mechanic as a day job and does fights on the side for extra cash. When Heath sees his brother’s sort of ex-girlfriend asking for help, Heath can’t say no.

Allie and her baby-daddy have this odd relationship. She’s a really clean-cut, good girl, but she somehow gets involved with a guy who cheats, lies and gets into trouble. Ryker put her thought so much crap, that they are finally broken up. But he doesn’t think so.

Mostly Loving Lawson is Allie and Heath’s relationship. Heath is starting to have feelings for Allie, but he knows it’s wrong because he promised Ryker that he would look out for her. Of course trouble comes around because some of Ryker’s past comes to stir things up.

This book was a quick read. I think it had a lot of potential and overall I liked it, but it did need to be polished just a tad bit. As much as I love fast-pace books, I need more meat. I needed some story development on Allie and Ryker’s relationship. I needed more build-up on Heath and Allie’s relationship while she was with Ryker. Were there any lingering feelings?

The climatic part of the book was the best. It was unexpected and I’m kind of torn on my feelings. I want to feel a certain way, but I kind of fell the opposite for some reason. Anyhow, I’m left shocked and needy for the next book.
