Handsome husband—check.
Beautiful house—check.
Wonderful life…I could never put a check next to this.
Through it all, I longed for a different life. With a man I had called my best friend. A man who is not my husband.
When the unspeakable happens and I’m left alone, its Mick who is there to pick me up.

Not everything is meant to be.
Watching the woman who owned my heart start a life with someone else – broke me to the core.
But time goes on and I try too.
Until one phone call changes both our lives.
She could have been taken from me forever. Instead, a tragic accident takes away the only man I thought ever made her happy.
When she starts over again, in my city, in my home; sharing slivers of her story with me it’s then that I learn not everything is as it appears.
None of this matters though, when I’ve been given a second chance to prove we’re meant to be.

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

**My Review**

Welcome to my stop on the release tour for the latest in the 425 Madison series, Must Love Forever! This was my second time reading author Leigh Lennon and I am a huge fan of hers and her previous book in this series Must Love Coffee. This novel is about Mick and Bianca who have been friends since they were kids, their parents are close friends, and so on. After a sudden and tragic accident, Bianca finds herself temporarily living with Mick in his apartment at 425 Madison. Bianca has always had a crazy crush on Mick. Mick has always been head over heels for Bianca. But neither of them knew or did anything about it until fate gives them another chance. 

I’ll start by saying that I completely fell in love with Mick while reading this! Where in the world can I find my own Mick?? He was so incredibly sweet, sexy, caring, intelligent and everything else wonderful you can imagine. But the best thing about Mick was the amazing way he treated Bianca, his patience, and his protectiveness over her. 

But here’s where I ran into a problem… While I sympathized with Bianca’s situation and certainly wanted her to find her HEA – I just did not like her. Maybe it was because of her past being in an emotionally abusive relationship, but I found her character immature, quick to jump to conclusions and a very poor communicator. I tried to like her and tried to pick out positive, wonderful things about her, but I just couldn’t. I apologize to author Leigh Lennon because I am such a huge fan, but Bianca fell short for me. 

In spite of my feelings about the female main character, I still enjoyed this book and found the premise incredibly sweet and romantic. I love friends to lovers novels and this was a wonderful addition to the genre and the 425 Madison series. If not for Bianca, this would have easily been a 5-star read for me! As with all of the books in this series, Must Love Forever can be enjoyed as a standalone, but because the rest of the series is so wonderful, I highly recommend reading them all because the characters will make appearances again.

I’m asleep, or at least I’m faking sleep very well when the door creaks open. Her footsteps move closer
and closer, coming around the foot of the bed, pulling the covers back. The second she does, I roll over,
bringing her in close to me. But tonight, I don’t care about the beast of my erection poking into her
backside. Does she not know what she does to me?
We never speak in bed. We never speak of her sleeping with me. And I’m not sure if I should break our
protocol to tell her how much I want her. It goes deeper—she’s shattered, and I don’t know how to fix her,
but I desperately want to. 
I come as close to the olive complexion of her back as I can get, and she doesn’t wiggle out of the touch
of my erection. The little tease backs her ass closer into it, and it makes me inhale long and deep,
exhaling on the back of her neck. She relaxes farther into me, and I can’t resist her, not for a second
I pepper kisses onto her neck, as her hand snakes back over her hip to my cock. The second her fingers
make contact with it, though it’s covered by my boxers, my kisses speed up, my own fingers dipping into
her low cut tank top. The same whimper she emitted earlier has returned and I push her to her back,
bracing myself over her. I should say something, ask her what she wants. When our eyes connect, and
we can see each other by the moonlight streaming in, she takes her finger, covering my lips, telling me
there will be no talking. With a nod of her head, it’s her way of telling me this is what she wants, and I
lower my face to hers, taking control of her mouth.
Her tongue scrapes at my teeth, and she playfully bites the lower part of my lip. Oh, shit, this is sexy as
hell. My hands are pushing me up, as to not squish her tiny body. In one fluid motion, I roll over, bringing
her with me, her body resting on mine. She’s so light, she won’t hurt me. My arms are wrapped around
her, but I can’t resist exploring her whole body. My hands come to rest on her ass when I sneak my
fingers between her skin and skimpy shorts. 
Squeezing her pert ass, causes my erection to continue to barrel into her body. Scooting to her side,
still on me, she pulls my cock through my boxers. I emit another harsh departure of air, only to suck it in
again when her hand wraps around my cock, stroking it from the base to the tip.
I intend on telling her what she’s doing is right—what this is with us is perfect, but I can’t. It’s not what we
do, not in the confines of my bed.
When she moves her body from mine, I miss her warmth but I don’t have to wait long when the tip of her
tongue starts to suck up the precum of my cock. Her tongue connects with me, and my body relaxes into
what this is, because it’s Bia and the two of us together are unstoppable.

Don’t Must Love Coffee by Leigh Lennon from the first season of 425 Madison Ave.
“This book was a total feel-good romance. Gwen and Leo hit it off right from the begging and I really
loved how the story is not just about them, their kids, all three of them get a bit of a spotlight and help the
story move forward. Even the judge was a great addition to the story.” —Amazon Reviewer
