If It’s Only Love by Lexi Ryan
Series: The Boys of Jackson Harbor, book 6
Genre: contemporary, second chance romance
Publisher: Ever After, LLC
Publication Date: September 10, 2019
Rating: ★★★★✰

This book isn’t just a second chance romance. It’s not just a sports romance. It’s a story of heartbreak, first love, loss, sacrifices, and the profound faith that family means everything. Lexi Ryan scripts an intricate web between the pages of this incredible story that captivates readers from the start.

Each book in this amazing series showcases its own tale of complexity while tackling obstacles and complications that seem impossible to overcome. But Shay and Easton’s story expresses a whole new level of setbacks and heartache. Their long history together has been filled with longing, heartache, and overwhelmingly difficult decisions that leave them both broken. Their love is anything but perfect. And just when you think their timing is finally right, life steps in and threatens their already unstable reconnection.

I’m a little sad that this series has come to an end. But I’m also extremely happy because this book was the perfect ending to all the Jackson sibling’s stories. If It’s Only Love overflows with love, devotion, and selflessness while also enrapturing the reader with its angst, unconditional love, and passionate romance. This book is sexy, sweet, and bleeds emotions. It can be read as a complete standalone, but I highly recommend starting from the beginning of the series and take an unforgettable journey to Jackson Harbor.

if it's only love

From New York Times bestseller Lexi Ryan comes a sexy new standalone romance in the bestselling Boys of Jackson Harbor series. Meet single dad Easton Connor as he leaves the NFL and returns to Jackson Harbor to fight for another chance with the love of his life.


I don’t regret much.

Not my decision to enter the NFL draft before finishing college.
Not fighting custody of my daughter—even if, biologically speaking, it turns out she’s not mine.
And certainly not seducing my buddy’s little sister ten years ago.

But when it comes to Shayleigh Jackson, my no-regrets attitude stops there. I screwed up royally where she’s concerned. Then I made another mistake when I let her shut me out of her life.

Now after more than a decade living in different time zones, I’m coming home to Jackson Harbor. My first priority is getting my daughter away from the media circus in LA, but the moment I see Shay, I know I’ll stop at nothing to win her back.

So what if she won’t speak to me? So what if she’s changed? So what if she’s fallen for some douchebag professor? I’ve never gotten over her and I know she feels the same about me. I’ve let her go twice. I won’t make that mistake again.

If It’s Only Love and all other books in this series can be read as standalones, but you’ll enjoy reading them together.
