Book Review: Love Abstract by BL Berry

We are thrilled to be included in the blog tour for the book Love Nouveau by B.L. Berry.  We have received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review.

The only thing inevitable in love is despair. 

I knew from the start that he would wreck me. 
Nothing could have prepared me for the day he walked into my life ... 
or the day he walked out of it. 

I self-destructed. 

All that remained was a shell of the girl I once was. 

And I don't know if I'll ever recover.

Last year we reviewed the first book in this series Love Nouveau (make sure to read that book first!).  This book picks up a few weeks after Phoenix and Ivy make their move to New York.  They are living together and everything seems to be going okay.  However, Phoenix is hiding something pretty major and Ivy knows it.  Ivy starts learning bits and pieces along the way, but never from Phoenix himself.  Ivy decides to trust him anyways.  However, after a night of celebration the truth comes out and Ivy is devastated.  I wish I could say more, but it would give too much of the plot away.  Just know that Ivy realizes she is stronger than she thinks she is and Phoenix is able to come to terms with his past.  
I really enjoyed seeing some of the side characters from the first book featured in here.  I also loved the character Brock.  He was a trip.  I think Berry does a great job of describing the art and the pieces in this book.  I could picture it all in my head!  When you read this book you will being to have a fondness for origami paper cranes too!  I'm glad there was a second book in this series to find out what Phoenix is all about.  I am also glad that Ivy is able to work through her previous baggage.  I will miss Ivy and Phoenix, but am in way content to see them go.  :)

About the author:

B.L. Berry is many things. A New Adult author. A self-proclaimed music whore. A long-course triathlete. A marketing savant. And a full-time working mom. While there are never enough hours in the day, she does the best she can to get things done and hopes for technological advances in human cloning.

When she’s not hiding behind her computer writing, you can find her spending time with her family or catching up on her favorite TV shows. Rumor has it she’ll sleep when she’s dead.

She is Canadian by birth. Mexican by marriage. Chicagoan by heart. Kansan by choice. Jayhawk purely by common sense.

Residing outside of Kansas City, she lives with her husband, two children and black pug. Each day her family thanks the makers of e-Readers, because without which they would be living amongst stacks and stacks of romance novels. Conversely, each day B.L. Berry thanks the makers of e-Readers for hiding her book-hoarding tendencies.
