Jason Michaels knows second chances are very much a part of “happy ever after.” He’s seen it firsthand, more than once. So when will it be his turn? He has a great group of friends and family to share his life with, but he knows there is one thing still missing. Love isn’t something he’s been avoiding, he just hasn’t found it yet… or has he?
Tori Peterson has made mistakes in her life, but they all pale in comparison to her marriage. Luckily, she’s a woman who quickly learned from her mistakes. Doing everything in her power to escape the man who promised to cherish her, she builds herself a life she can be proud of. Never again will she be fooled into being with a man who she might love. She knows she has too much to lose. Her hope? That she will recognize real love when she finds it. Her fear? That her past will catch her before she has a chance to find the love she deserves, the love that is required … So what happens when her hopes and fears catch up to her at the same time?

If you have read any of the previous books in this series, then you are familiar with the tears Melanie Codina can ring from your eyes with her talent with words. Gah! She did it to me again with this one. In this series, with each novel, Melanie has surprised me with her ability to grasp on to subjects that a lot of people have had to deal with in their lives. In Love Required? The abusive relationship and how to survive. 

Tori survived. She doesn't really know how she did, but she did. Her life is finally back on the track she wanted it to be on. There's something missing. But the fact remains she didn't even realize it until it was staring her in the face. And well, when her bestie managed to throw down the gauntlet and demand a "minimum requirement of two". ;) 

She was missing him. Jason. *sigh* I <3 Jason. He's every dream man combined all into one. Successful, protective, sexy, has the biggest heart, and the most gentle touch. I think I sighed the first of a million times when he was cradling his niece on his chest. I swear, something about a man with a baby in his arms. He's the perfect compliment for the damaged little bird that is Tori. He shows her how a man is supposed to treat his woman and love her. 

Melanie Codina is an amazing writer. Her words cut to the heart of the reader and you can't help but feel the love pour from the pages. Each novel in the Real Love series gets better and better.  I love the interaction between all the characters in this series. Catching up with Gillian & Jake, and Mike & Allie, and now our newest friend Tessa, it's the perfect huge crew of love and laughter.  And now I hear we are gonna get an inside peek at the Baxter Boys?? OMG can we say freaking excited??

about the author
Melanie is an amazing mother of four, an awesome and tolerant wife to one, and nurse to many. If you don’t believe her, just ask anyone in her family, they know what to say. She is also a devoted chauffeur, the keeper of missing socks, a genius according to a six year old, the coolest soccer uniform coordinator according to a twelve yearold, and the best damn ‘mac-n-cheese-with-cut-up-hot-dog maker in the whole world. Well that last title isn’t really official, but it’s still pretty cool to be called it. When not being ordered around by any of the kids, you can find her with her nose in a book or on the sideline of a soccer game cheering on one team or another. But that’s mostly because she has a thing for the coach. When she is not doing all of the above, you can find her obsessed with a group of fictional characters all vying for a spot on the page of whatever she’s working on. It’s a fun and crazy life to lead, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
