Book Review: Always Only You by Chloe Liese

Rating: 4.25/5

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Warnings: chronic illness + pain (RA), autism spectrum

Read if you liked: Only When It’s Us or the Kiss Quotient

Steam: 🔥🔥🔥/5

Summary: Via Goodreads

Let’s talk about the book that made me binge the series in a weekend! We are back with another Bergman Brothers novel…have I convinced you to read them yet? Chloe also announced this week a book deal with Berkley Romance. I’m so freaking pumped for her and to read these new books. This is an #ownvoices novel and is super special. We don’t see MCs on the autism spectrum in many romance books, let alone one who also has a chronic illness. Representation is needed, everyone has a love story to be told and Chloe is breaking the stereotypes with this beautiful novel.

We also hit a lot of tropes in this book
💙 Sports romance (yes, I liked a hockey romance)
💙 Grumpy heroine/sunshine hero (big cinnamon roll too)
💙 Autism/chronic illness representation
💙 Workplace romance + forced proximity + friends to lovers + slow burn

Things I loved: Ren is just the most delightful MC I have seen in awhile. Catching up with the characters from the first book. Frankie was unabashedly herself 100% of the time, truly a badass. Pacing was fantastic. Good steam.

Things I didn’t care for: I’m one of those people that really hates pop culture references and there were a lot in here.

Special shoutout to my friend Emma (@emma_not_watson_reads) for mailing me this book but its also available on Kindle Unlimited (which is where I read it).

Love,

A
