MY REVIEW:

Maggie Larken, a reformed party girl, is raising her younger brother Asher after the death of their parents. Between juggling motherhood, school, and work, Maggie isn't looking for anything more. Then Luke Wilson walks in to her life and has her picturing a future for them.

Luke Wilson had a troubled childhood and wasn't looking for love. All he wanted was to get his siblings out of his parents house and find freedom for himself helping children overseas. Then he walked in to class and met his Sunshine...Maggie Larken.

Luke can't seem to stay away from Maggie but when things start to become too real for him he finds himself running. Will Luke be able to realize what he needs in his life before it's too late?

For The Love of Ash is a beautifully written story full of angst, pain, and most importantly, love. The love between siblings, between mother and son, and between man and woman. Taylor Lavati explores the different kinds of love while also tackling topics such as abuse and neglectful parenting.

I loved this book from beginning to end. As a single mom, I loved Maggie and her relationship with Ash. He's more than a brother to her, he's her son and the love between a mother and child can never be replaced. Luke was a good guy with his heart in the right place and you can tell he truly cares for both Maggie and Asher. I loved the alternating POV's between both Maggie and Luke and getting a peek in to their minds and relationships with Asher.

For The Love of Ash will move you, but most importantly you'll find yourself loving a little boy named Ash who the story is truly about. This is the first book I have read by Lavati, but it will not be the last.

★★★★★
